lyrics

Ease it away
but come back
Come back so we can fall apart again
It's so innocuous
to have no words to say
that I'm in love with an abstraction in your eyes

And they're looking distant now to me
now that you are back within arm's reach
I just forgot the perfect tense to say
that I wanted you
that I'd have wanted you to stay

You're so mysterious
with your life
O with your native tongue
And we were delirious
so high on young bluffs
but yours were younger and all the air was trapped within your lungs

And you're sounding distant now to me
now that you are back within arm's reach
I just forgot the perfect tense to say
that I wanted you...no
that I'm wanting you...no
that I've wanted you...no
that I'd have wanted you to stay

A E I owed you a chance
to tell me that it's over
but my ear's weren't
keen enough to hear hearts breaking
So if you want to speak your mind
speak slowly so I'm sure
and you won't hear my voice again.

The band is now poised to bring their smooth adult contemporary and tiki-infused sounds to the bowling alleys and seedy cocktail lounges of North America. ... more
