I'd fall asleep under your window, waking whenever you’d sleep, serenading your silhouette with love songs hummed under my breath. I spent hours in your driveway, using telepathy and tears to send you ESP telegrams, arriving blank and unsigned. I’d steal the letters that your boyfriend sent, replacing them with bouquets of your favorite flowers and encrypted communiques. I’d sleep with horseshoes and horoscopes, like guns, tucked under my head, counting on meteors and MC Squared to reconfigure our stars.
Solitaire (Acoustic) (free) 06:38
I. I miss kissing your firm and sunburnt skin, the luscious chills and suggestive grins, the rumbling and hissing of sex and intimacy, your suffocating clairvoyancy. I could be what you want and all that jazz. I could be all that you want me to be. What we had was impossible to bury and burn. Haven’t you heard? Standing still is death. II. A girl is playing solitaire on the game computer there - the high score breached. Reverberations of her voice ping-pong mathematically: “Finally.” A disco ball hangs high above in a corner flanked by dust, turning just for you. Broken speakers call your name, “Congratulations on your game. Here’s to you.”
Fever and green Make our lives spin faster All eyes wide Iron and wine Are our fuel and fire All hearts shut She raised the dead She woke in the morning Rise and shine... I was born from the sea I will die in this house I was raised by the stars I will die in this house I'll die lonely... Silent night (And we're) quietly asleep All eyes shut I was born from the sea I will die in this house I was raised the stars I will die in this house I'll die lonely...
Under electricity wires, we’d count the stars and the pores in our skin. Through the summer dusk, afar, we’d watch the cars turn on their brights and drive into the night. On the banks of the Rhein, ships capped their lines, and we were left wondering why we had drifted apart. Since then, thousands of ships have sailed past and I still dream of us there, counting the passengers stepping aboard and waving goodbye.


All songs were recorded in a single evening at a local school gymnasium in January 2008. The takes include mistakes, traffic noise, an out-of-tune piano, but also a lot of heart.


released January 14, 2008
