about

you don't know how much...

thanks for purchasing from bandcamp (a distribution platform that gives more to artists and is generally real dope). if you cannot afford the record there is a download link available at my web site: sethboyer.com/jesse/2014/12/16/new-record-new-single/

if you like this kinda thing, i have a patreon at patreon.com/sethboyer that helps keep the lights on and the ramen having meat and vegetables in it. okay, peas count as vegetables i don't care if they're mostly starch.

Track Name: Always Fear the Things You Want (ft. Danika Harrod)
A summer garden party
it’s the first after such a long and lonely
winter on my own
now the night can’t come soon enough

we used to lie on our backs at night
trace new constellations in the sky between
the moles on your arms
and the back of your neck

chorus:
but wait, it’s not all gone
i hear it callin out, sayin don’t forget me
it only comes out at night
between car alarms and neon signs

it’s just past 2:30
the sun’s still losing light
over Sleeping Lady’s hair

this sun’s too much
can’t take this heat
can’t take the world beneath my feet
just gotta keep moving

i used to be afraid of dying
used to wring my hands like everyone else
but how can i spit in the face of what i want

chorus x2
Track Name: So Much
outside, the streetlights bend to the whims of winter winds
night sky is overcast yet again to your chagrin
and you wonder if our city life is worth these starless nights

i said i’m sorry i’m such a mess this time of year
you hold me closer til the shakes have disappeared
said you’ll never have to make it thru this world on your own
never for a second doubt that i love you

so much
so much
so much
Track Name: Eight Fourteen
haven’t left the apartment
for at least a week
from the look of my feeds
the world’s on a losing streak
how could i fare much better

so i’ll brave the summer
and its bitter sun
every face in the market
says i’m not the only one
who’s prayin for winter
and the need for a coat

i find some relief
in the cool embrace
of a 40 of mickeys
i’ve only begun to debase myself

the suns goin down
when i make it home
a good day with friends
but somehow i’m so alone
and i should be thankful
for all that i’ve got
god knows i’m not

i could
i could be so much more
don't know what I'm waiting for
Track Name: Chicago
all i want’s to make you mac and cheese
sit around and watch tv
soon i'll get a bed to share
then i see no reason to leave

it’s too long til i can see your face
i can’t make it to june
fillin up my notebooks all with red
though i cant afford the plane
i’ll make it to chicago soon

it’s too long til i can see your face
i can’t make it to june
fillin up my notebooks all with red
though i cant afford the plane
i’ll make it to chicago soon

i can’t wait til i can see your face
i’m not waiting til june
playin songs for drunks on market street
til i afford the plane
and i hope you feel the same
i’ll make it to chicago soon
Track Name: Later
give my best to those
who stuck around
i'm done
i'm moving on
Track Name: The Deeper Well
Well I ain't seen no gulf stream waters
but I swam in those Great Lakes
I even died in the Mississippi
when just the moon was awake

I felt you swimming up beside me
and you grabbed me by my toes
took me back before tomorrow
but to where I don't know

Winter saw the lakes freeze over
cracking spiderwebs of ice
an extra coat to keep you warmer
when just the one won't suffice

And as we crossed that solid river
you held me closer by your side
tightly there to keep your footing
for nothing else could I provide

This all seems too much to swallow
a little more than I could bear
diving into pools so shallow
the deeper well, well it ain't there
the deeper well, well it ain't there

That water stood so deep and stoic
but it could run on such a tear
and now I'm back just three years later
and it's like we were never there
and it's like we were never there

This all seems too much to swallow
a little more than I could bear
diving into pools so shallow
the deeper well, well it ain't there
the deeper well, well it ain't there

This all seems too much to swallow
a little more than I could bear
diving into pools so shallow
the deeper well, well it ain't there
the deeper well, well it ain't there
