Lyrics from the current EP "Do You Love Me? Yes / No"

1. Locust
My Love from the mountains / My Love to the sea / My Love on the beaches / My Love in the trees
My Love needs devotion / My Love needs a seed / My Love is the ocean / My Love is a weed
I want you home with me

2. Homecoming Game
Missing boy you've gone away
They said you'd be on 28 days
Hung out on strings of drug love laundry line
They took you in and pumped a different kind

A light came through is what we say
A darkness on Thanksgiving Day
All hands around a proud ballet
We all enjoyed your homecoming game

You held a stage you held my hand when we were we
Now floating in your chair you don't see me
But you made me promise not to tell them
As your eyes rolled away on your holiday

A light came through is what we say
A darkness on Thanksgiving Day
All hands around a proud ballet
We all enjoyed your homecoming game

3. The Longest Day
Please spare the world / please bear the world

4. Scary Things at Night
A dark woodsy house window—I found you there
You're never gonna stop me I just want to be clear
You can run as fast as your little girl feet will take you but
I will hunt you down
I will hunt you down
I will find you

Throw it on open and please join me outside
Swollen moon rising you can see where I'm hiding
I hiss through my teeth when I see your window open
I will take you down
I will take you down
I will take you
down

The family's all gone you're alone in the dark an empty home no one will notice
Come play with me run through the trees I'll catch your legs and eat your bones

Your face at the window I just gave you a scare
Back away slow but I can still sense your blood there
You can wait it out long but you know I like to linger
I will wait for you I will wait for you I am waiting

5. I Never Left
Getting on in late October
Letting on, I wake up and you're gone
You know I never left you, Home

Window down I'm breathing older
A gusting wind it's singing all night long
You know there's beauty in your song

I miss the marsh light up
I miss the nothing going on
On a deck watching planes fly over
A strip of night the stars go on and on
A wish you'd never leave alone

I kissed you at a friend's field party
Headlights from cars they knew what we had done
I wish I never left you, Home

I see all the wrinkles in your face
and mine we never stood a chance
