Vampires 04:03
It took me by surprise when I told you I was leaving Sometimes plans reveal themselves in drink By the time I'm privy to the vampires I've let in Realize I'm not sober again Reaching for that cold familiar coffin of my dreams Bottle that is opening up my seams Might as well wrap my hands around the neck of my new life Somehow, for a moment it feels right God bless my time here in the city Where my only friends are Jack and Johnny When it comes to drinking sorrows, lord, you know my color's blue Pour another round and I'll pull through Tonight's the night I probably won't remember Remind me when I'm dry in 24 At least there's you to write to when I'm laid out on the floor One more year and I'll give you some more
Swear you never felt this way before That you’re down and out And taken in the street You can almost hear them call your name But this trick will make you lonely Just the same So you have a few What’s the shame If they only knew The people they became Put another down And call it out for me If you’ve had enough It’s harder now to see What’s this pain you put on me? It’s enough to make you bleed Strolling down the alley like before When our lives entangled Gathering the spore Now it’s just a weed within the sand Choking all the other flowers Once in hand
I never saw it coming I tell myself when it all comes apart Part the seas or mend the wound Still the end is coming soon For what I’ve done before is etched in stone Here’s to tonight Let’s hope we finally get it right We only have each other in this life So drink up while you can You may never live again And we’ll pretend tomorrow’s looking bright June coming soon with bells There’s little else to look for in this spell Grab a beer and drink it down Have your friends all gather round To make it through you’d better hunker down Morning will be around here soon We’ll stay awake till dawn removes the moon And we’ll reminisce the day When we threw our lives away And make-believe that everything’s okay
She said that you don't have to speak for me But you find the words You're always first I find it hard to track the pace of change I feel the same But I can't explain away the signs of age Think "of when" will hurt With diminishing returns Even our glory days depreciate Nothing has felt so right As your hand holding mine Even our glory days left me behind As fast as lightning strikes it never stays We share the blame The burn remains I catch myself staring into space I've been replaced Turn to see my footsteps wash away You're in my head, a silhouette You said that love is earned But all I am can barely stand Can't run out the clock, it never stops Knocking on my door As time goes on I won't be long Stand back, a forest enters into frame Feel the shame Of all the dreams you gladly gave away
Faithfully Is this what you want from me? Well we’ve had our share of trials And relapsed every denial So just speak to me But don’t do so casually We’ve all dealt enough with courtesy It’s time to do this honestly Don’t say Get me out Get me out Get me out Get me out There’s no point to live in doubt Get me out Kindness bleeds When taxed so mercilessly Your silence is a tourniquet My heart can’t take much more of it So let me see What you really want to be My answer is on file But this can’t wait till tomorrow Don’t say Sing a little out of tune As we stare out at the broken moon To remind ourselves There is so much left to live for Astronauts on colored rocks Too blind to see there’s so much more You come to me But not as you used to be You came to say good bye Say this last year’s been a lie You say
Get Along 02:55
I can’t keep track of myself And there’s no saying what I’ve done to my health Becoming clear to me now That I’ve been coming undone for sometime Every time, that you call out my name Everything that’s said Is trivially the same But I’m here And I am stuck on what to say It’s never clear So I am leaving this today But I’ll never clear it while I stay Molding all my worries from your clay Tender memories filter through the gray Suitcase fantasies never come in play We’ll get along But I wonder why you trust me near you I have a list to be read That’s full of grievances I’m putting to bed And under all of these sheets I’ll hide the worries I’ve laid over time On the spine, of this novel of games The villain of the tale Tends to share my name
You know, I thought I was stronger Already grown Then you walked in Cut straight to the bone When you give me a smile I'm no longer alone Everyday we're Closer to home Come and teach me What I need to be When you reached me I could finally breath I’m becoming what I’m meant to be When I touched you face It all fell into place You make me better Another coat on the wall Another place in my heart A warm new light For my room in the dark Listen all that I can When you’re ready to do Anything you want Always be there for you
Stop 03:01
It can be easy to feel like you’re blowing away So as you pass through I’ll hold you firm And make you stay Slowly attention is going astray I’ll have to speak true now If I had the right mind it would be easy to say But all that comes out Tired words And empty play A fragile moment is falling away About to hit the ground Can we stop Talk it over We only have a moment till it’s through Tell me it’s not true I’ll warm your icy shoulders It’s worth at least my past to trust in you I just don’t know what to do An innocent lie grew into a weed Led to believe It was the rarest flower seed Pulling the root left you flat on your face Nothing to disavow With a little accord we’re going to see how we feel now If we’re going to upend I’ll need to find some stable ground When we come to amends I hope this all will settle down Here’s a little of me now A little of me now
Easier Way 03:52
Split in the canvas Blood on the sheets An old forgotten comment hangs for weeks Hanging by caffeine Excusing the rain There never really was someone to blame But still you look above Gotta find an easier way To make it worth the stay To break this standard format And always be right here Try to find the words to say It’s going to take another day Addend this foreign contract Before I re-appear Just once Time to make this clear (Save faith for those who disappear) Blinded by prospects Deluded by fear Amazing how it held on for a year Searching for context Another to share Burdened by the need to try to care Dark is always near It’s easy to turn And lock it away But I have another hand To lend for the day It’s never going to be the same So we’ll spite reality
Landslides come along And take away our view Futures that we planned Forgotten by the few Arriving at this land Hoping to pass through Soon took hold of us Horror no one knew Nothing really says I love you Like the heart we’re sharing now When I stare into your eyes Knew that we were going down There are not many that survive A savage love like that for long We could have but we took this mountain on Cold white blankets cover Everything we knew No time to prepare And nothing we could do We made a solemn vow That we’d never part Will you find me now I’m gone Searching here in the dark I just wish I could still hold you Wish I could hear your voice But this mountain came and took you As if I had a choice Still I haunt these broken hills As we they find their new home Never forget the consequence Never get trapped here alone
City Lights 03:09
The stars in the sky Hide behind the city lights Warmth in the night Keeps us safe and makes us blind I came here to breathe Not for playing make believe The last thing we need Is to bleed optimistically Oohh, Oohh Listen and learn how to love Oohh, Oohh Open your ears, we’re more than an ending No need to race towards the sun We run when we fight Fall across the finish line Lay next to me I’ve no need for cavalry I know talk is cheap And I refuse to pay the fee Ask and receive Though you smile uncomfortably It’s a question of time The feeling that you’re worth it To listen and learn how to love All we have to do is try A little more than you’ll be fine Open your eyes See past the city lights.
Swallow 03:58
From time to time I do things wrong I made a list, but I lost track And those are times I’m not getting back And you’re the way I get along The way that you inform me Every time I’m wrong Day to day you tell me how I had it first no getting back You take for the things I lack And I’m the kind to let it go The way that you deplore me All the while you know Hit the ceiling, take my plate Lest I know I’m out of place Our past is written on my face I love it when you’re at your best Time to get this off my chest It’s your turn To Swallow it too Face to face you let me down Take advantage of my love Finding cause to rise above You’re the girl to settle in Shadow of a memory What you’ve always been No point in hesitating It’s the dead who thrive on waiting All the hate you’re letting in Boils over shallow rims Pull the blinds and bind my hands Never to come up again Take these chains and drive them down Till no one else can hear us underground


Originally thought as a low fi vehicle to reimagine our more energetic tunes this work turned into something much more unique. The pandemic of 2020 gave us time to write a lot of new music so instead of a complete retread of older tunes we were able to write 10 new songs specifically for the acoustic guitar.

These songs deal with the very real issues we've been living through in the past 2 years as well as some songs written years ago (when Handsome Midnight originally began as an alt-country outfit) that finally found the light of day.
