lyrics

It was a cold one in Philly
The winter dropped the storm off at my front door
And it kept us in for weeks
So you couldn’t leave
And maybe that’s what scared me
Yeah maybe that’s what told you to run
Just as soon as the sun
Thawed us up and out of here

When you said, “Baby, honestly
Just what the hell you want from me?”
But I swear I didn’t know
Any better than you do now
And you said, “Take a breath, focus
What should we both take from this?”
‘Cause I think I could have loved you
But I just didn’t know how, no

So you took the 9:10 AM
Eastbound right out of town
And you weren’t coming back
You knew I lacked the cash
To come chase you down across the bridge
My car was still plowed in
I put my head in my hands
Knew I’d done it again in the end

When you said, “Baby, honestly
Just what the hell you want from me?”
But I swear I didn’t know
Any better than you do now
And you said, “Take a breath, focus
What should we both take from this?”
‘Cause I think I could have loved you
But I just didn’t know how

And should I figure it out
I hope you’re still waiting around
But I doubt that you will be
‘Cause the morning came quickly
And the cold ripped right through us
We were all out of wine
Finally out of excuses
And you said, “It’s so hard to see
Or just feel what you think
When you smile right though
All the sad, sad songs that you sing

So I said, “Baby, honestly
I don’t think that I can be
As real as you want
Though I know you want it so much”
And I said, “Step back, relax
Let me sleep walk through all of this
I’m stuck in some nightmare
Where I can’t wake up”

And you said, “Baby, honestly
Just what the hell you want from me?”
But I swear I didn’t know
Any better than you do now
And you said, “Take a breath, focus
What should we both take from this?”
‘Cause I think I could have loved you
But I just didn’t know how

Man in a Crowd New York, New York

We love making music and playing shows. We’re not that fond of writing third-person biographies and comparing our sound to a synthesis of indistinguishable post-genres. We hope our songs will get your feet stomping, your knees knocking, and your heart pounding – because that’s what they do for us. ... more
