Track Name: Strange in L.A.
i can’t shake the unusual things i’ve seen
california keeps happening to me

UV salons still trying to sell me melanoma
while boardwalk clinics claim i have glaucoma
and bel-air housewives crashing their humvees
good thing their faces now come with a warrantee

we’ll go, oh, we’ll drive down hollywood
now tell me who’s out of place?
i think i’ve seen, oh, my waiter on TV
i’m feeling strange, strange, strange in L.A.
strange in L.A.
we’re all just stranger in L.A. x 2
strange in L.A. x 2
we’re all just stranger in L.A. x 3

the noise from lakers motorcades
the homeless sing like marvin gaye

the geriatric rockers still dressing like rotten
they haven’t changed their hair since london came calling
and hipsters looking like big game hunters
the biggest gun they’ve seen gogo danced in boys’ town

now we’ll go, oh, we’ll drive down hollywood
now tell me who’s out of place?
you’ll get the swag, oh, even the mayor’s in SAG
i’m feeling strange, strange, strange in L.A.
strange in L.A.
we’re all just stranger in L.A. x 2
strange in L.A. x 2
we’re all just stranger in L.A. x 4

strange in L.A.
we’re all just stranger in L.A.
strange in L.A.
we’re all just stranger in L.A.
i think i’ve seen, oh, my waiter on TV
i’m feeling strange
you’ll get the swag, oh, even the mayor’s in SAG
i’m feeling strange, strange, strange in L.A.
strange in L.A.
we’re all just stranger in L.A. x 2
strange in L.A. x 2
we’re all just stranger in L.A. x 3
Track Name: The Moment That I Knew You
i know the sun’s too much for my protection
i feel you there in the sand, we are impressions
i tell you secrets, i might wash away
arms open, your lonely rented room, unspoken
the moment that i knew you x 4

we’re chasing moments ‘till there is no light out
we’ve gone from the smokestacks back to our hideout
we need each other, we were locked away
i kiss you, our skin confirms the need to continue
the moment that i knew you x 4

the dawn will come but in your arms i will stay
we’ve begun
we’ve begun
the moment that i knew you x 4
Track Name: Heartsink
(tell me we’ll be erased
tell me when you’ll be satisfied
you can’t just walk away)

i wear it like an emblem
nostalgia in the A.M.
we’re buried in the playlists
i only have my hoarding heart to blame
a sea of broken pieces
i dive before it deepens
i’m drowning in the weekend
i never thought i’d wash this year away

i don’t want to feel my heart sink
i’m bailing but the walls keep leaking
tell it to the sleepless evenings
we can’t go back, we’re falling

i don’t want to build a time machine
i just want to fill this void i feel
deep into the night, i’m begging
we can’t go back, we’re fading

put up another barricade
we can’t keep out yesterday
when my resolve has weakened
i just can’t form the words that i should say
all the broken pieces
they’re looking like my demons
and sounding like your reasons
they’re hiding where the photos fade away

i don’t want to feel my heart sink
i’m bailing but the walls keep leaking
tell it to the sleepless evenings
we can’t go back, we’re falling

i don’t want to build a time machine
i just want to fill this void i feel
deep into the night, i’m begging
we can’t go back, we’re fading

(tell me we’ll be erased
tell me when you’ll be satisfied
you can’t just walk away)

i don’t want to feel my heart sink
i’m bailing but the walls keep leaking
tell it to the sleepless evenings
we can’t go back, we’re falling

i don’t want to build a time machine
i just want to fill this void i feel
deep into the night, i’m begging
we can’t go back, we’re fading
Track Name: Fairbanks
worn recliner
could be finer
ever the fighter
it’s rarely cold
like the man it holds
like the man it holds

the years are settling

smell of metal
years have settled
summers mellow
children grown
with sons of their own
with sons of their own

the years are settling
keep remembering
keep remembering

midnight sun
yard overrun
the generations
the old man smiles
but the boy’s eyes are wild
the boy’s eyes are wild

the years are settling
keep remembering
keep remembering
Track Name: The Long A.M.
(we’ll find it now, my love
here in the short forever
we’re alright now, the last call
we’ll make it home together)

the last warm plate in sight
a fairfax shrine
we fell through time
the deep end of the night
the swimmers out
a sundry crowd
you were nonchalant
the loveliest around
diner shangri-la
we sat for hours and hours
moments never aging out

maybe we will find our right now, my love
(here in the short forever)
maybe we’re alright now
we’re out beyond the last call
(we’ll make it home together)

we walk out mystified
the headlight strobe
our coupled form
illuminates the signs
we gravitate
our hunger waits
for the wherewithal
you’re right where i belong
past your camouflage
we stood there overwrought
where we parked an afterthought

maybe we will find our right now, my love
(here in the short forever)
maybe we’re alright now
we’re out beyond the last call
(we’ll make it home together)

right now, right now, my love
right now, right now, my love

maybe we will find our right now, my love
(here in the short forever)
maybe we’re alright now
we’re out beyond the last call
the last call, the last call

right now, right now, my love
right now, right now, my love
