about

YOU'VE DONE IT!! You've made it here! Goodness I love you. Take this here music, my friends, and do what you will. Thank you so much for gettin' yourselves here--can't express my gratitude. I love this, and I love that others have told me that they love it. Let's keep it goin'.

There is no consistent theme to these songs, but some of the emotional terrain ventures through: alcoholism, one night stands, the power of optimism [appropriately followed by], misogynistic campus culture, self-confidence or lackthereof, and LOOOOVE in all forms, but particularly the lovey kind and the friendly kind. I challenge you to find that stuff--lyrics are provided on the EP BandCamp page.

1. Simply Adore You (written May, 2011)
2. The Blue Period (written January, 2013)
3. Can't We Pretend (written April, 2013)
4. You Are Beauty (written March, 2013)
5. TLC (written November, 2011)

Paying for this EP is optional--you download at your own price. Downloading for free is welcomed and encouraged, but if you choose to show support by suggesting a price other than 0 dollars, that could aaaalso be welcomed and encouraged.

Track Name: Simply Adore You
[VERSE ONE]

There are so many things that I wanna say to you
But I just couldn't figure out a way, a way to tell them to you
I know that I've said it a million times, but only to yours truly
I just can't begin to clarify the things that you do to me.
And I said

[PRE CHORUS]

I...

[CHORUS]

I simply adore you
I gotta make sure that you know
I simply adore you
And I'm right before you, no
I simply adore you
I gotta make sure that you know
I simply adore you
And I'm right before you, no

[VERSE TWO]

I hope that I haven't said too much
Cuz I've got more to say
Even if you do resist,
I'm gonna sing to you anyway
Even if you do resist,
I'm gonna sing to you anyway
And I said,

[PRE CHORUS]

I.... [with those nice lil harmonies, no?!]

[CHORUS]

I simply adore you
I gotta make sure that you know
I simply adore you
And I'm right before you, no
I simply adore you
I gotta make sure that you know
I simply adore you
And I'm right before you, no

[BRIDGE]

And when I try to talk away
Something about you just makes me stay
It's better than chocolate or my birthday
I just wanna sit with you and say

[CHORUS]

That I simply adore you
I gotta make sure that you know
I simply adore you
And I'm right before you, no
I simply adore you
I gotta make sure that you know
I simply adore you
And I'm right before you, no
Track Name: The Blue Period
[VERSE ONE]

I just came in from the snow
Hoping you'd know what I need
Cuz I'm not really sure myself
And I wish that all these
Things that I'd missed at my
Own expense

[PRE CHORUS]
So come on and
Show me

[CHORUS]

I'll show you your beauty
You're looking right through me
I know I'd have loved it
We both don't deserve it

[VERSE TWO]

I find that what does get me through
is my love for you,
I can often not speak,
As I think about this
Light and this line, this color and space
in our strange old place

[PRE CHORUS]

So come on and
Show me

[CHORUS]

I'll show you your beauty
You're looking right through me
I know I'd have loved it
We both don't deserve it

[BRIDGE]

Walk with me now,
Engulfed is a strong word to say how

[VERSE THREE]
And how can you keep someone warm
When all they know's torn innocence
and for sure there is something I've
Missed like a train,
homeward again
to this strange, old pace

[PRE CHORUS]

So come on and
Show me

[CHORUS]

I'll show you your beauty
You're looking right through me
I know I'd have loved it
We both don't deserve it
Track Name: Can't We Pretend
[VERSE]

When you bring me to my knees I find
Happiness and peace of mind
To show ya that I'm there
Cuz I'd rather live this lie with you
And know not of a single truth
Just watch me from the air

[PRE CHORUS]

Cuz I'm holding on you
And that sweet aroma
Still lingers on my nose

[CHORUS]

But can't I just hope,
Can't I just pretend,
Won't you just let me be your man
I'd rather hold my breath
Than let it all go,
See the door close,
Wouldn't even think to let you know,
But I'll see you, though

[ENTER THAT MMMYEEEA NICE CELLO]

[VERSE]

As he basks on his loneliness,
Following a heartless kiss,
He's shaking at the knees
Cuz he knows that he sees her next
Mountains of mysteriousness
The belly of the beast

[PRE CHORUS]

Cuz I'm holding on you
And that sweet aroma
Still lingers on my nose

[CHORUS]

But can't I just hope,
Can't I just pretend,
Won't you just let me be your man
I'd rather hold my breath
Than let it all go,
See the door close,
Wouldn't even think to let you know,
But I'll see you, though

[BRIDGE]

Am I in tune, making a move, you know what I'm trying to do
With a beat so smooth, man you probably thought it was auto-tune
I can't help feeling like you don't know nothing, you tell me that you're trying, dogg, but you're just bluffing
It takes more conversation than a half-hearted attempt, baby, at your situation
if it were me, you know, with no hesitation, I wouldn't let em leave without a friendly confrontation!
You're living in the backseat, eyes closed, ego set to repeat, yeah
Your knowledge of etymology, gynecology, what are you trying to do with that sexist ideology?
So follow me, apologies, you're losing me, onto bottle three of those honey bees, who will be the one to see?
In the language of misogyny, yeah, I know you're fluent
You can do it all on drugs but you can't give a damn compliment?

[PRE CHORUS]

Cuz I'm holding on you
And that sweet aroma
Still lingers on my nose

[CHORUS]

But can't I just hope,
Can't I just pretend,
Won't you just let me be your man
I'd rather hold my breath
Than let it all go,
See the door close,
Wouldn't even think to let you know,
But I'll see you, though
Track Name: You Are Beauty
[VERSE ONE]

Jack stained breath came home today
Night's grow lonely in Turner, Maine
Comes on home to an empty bed
Empty bottles, no one to say:
Always said come cuddle with me
It'd be alright if we fell asleep
He'd nod his head and tuck it in her breast
Hideaway, in the one place he'd missed
and he said

[CHORUS]

Give me all that I need
Wrap your arms around me, child
You've got to believe
That you are beauty

[POST CHORUS]

Ooooooo's!!

[VERSE TWO]
Here's the thing about love's great flame
Can light my fire, it can blow me away
It wasn't home in a long, long time
Broken hearts, broken bottles of wine
"Be there soon," she left on the fridge
He packed his bags before she found her way in
He tripped his sight when he saw the frame,
Taking steps then forgetting her name
And he said

[CHORUS]

Give me all that I need
Wrap your arms around me, child
You've got to believe
That you are beauty

[POST CHORUS]

Ooooooo's!!

[BRIDGE]

It's more than I can take, I'll break
"Grant serenity and what I'll change"
Been a one-way fire for life
Burning up mine

[CHORUS]

Give me all that I need
Wrap your arms around me, child
You've got to believe
That you are beauty
That you are beauty
That you are beauty
That you are beauty
Track Name: TLC [TendaLovinCare]
[VERSE]

I don't know why, but each time I try
Every little thought of mine leads me right on back
To you
And when I feel blue, all I need to do
Is think of our home right where
We belong
You're not by my side, I'l break down and cry
And sigh
And decide

[OK LET'S DANCE]

[VERSE]

It's just not the same,
When no one says your name
We're talking everyday,
Still I wanna stop and say,
I think about your pretty eyes,
And it makes me wonder why,
I had to ask for you love
Still I can't deny

[CHORUS]

Some of that TLC, yeah
TLC...

[VERSE]

Home feels like home,
Oh this you should know
I still feel that glow
I try my best to try,
I don't mean to make you cry,
But still I can't deny

[CHORUS]

Some of that TLC
Some of that TLC
TLC...

[VOILA FALSETTO !!??!!!???]

[BRIDGE]

Well now I feel blue,
All I need to do
Is think of our home, yeah,
Right where we belong

[CHORUS]

Some of that TLC
Some of that TLC
TLC...
