about

We never had a chance to really record an album, this was the closest we ever got. This demo was recorded on a single mic hooked up to a desk top computer on 10-12-04. These are just about the only recordings we have from that time. By the time we finally recorded these tracks we were already getting busy with other life responsibilities and we never did much with it. But, here it is!

The live tracks were recorded at Cozmic Pizza at some point in 2005. Carl couldn't make it that night, so it's just Luke and Jason. It was recorded on video camera and later the sound was stripped off to make the recording. That was the best we could do at that time.

Track Name: Little House
Little House

I know it's not your fault girl
There's noone to blame for what's been done
And, I don't know what to say now
about how we didn't turn out as planned

I'm still thinking
Your still floating through my thoughts
I'm still wishin
And, I'm dreaming of you
I want to be together
In a little house, little house, little house

We got a little pup to run outside, now
And, some tea on the porch at twilight
Your pictures on the walls, dear
In a room to call your own

A tree grown in the yard
with some shade for you to read under
a bird's gonna make a home there
And, I'm gonna fall asleep there

I'm still thinking
Your still floating through my thoughts
I'm still wishin
And, I'm dreaming of you
I want to be together
In a little house, little house, little house

We've got a guitar in the front room
That we can play every day
Sing to slow the time down
Then I'll make you mine
Track Name: Lonely Eyes
Lonely Eyes

If you get lonely eyes
please don't, please don't cry
'cause I'll meet you out somewhere
And, I'm good for a talk

We can go down to the lakeside
And we'll cast stones in the cove
and we'll creep down in the grove
so we can be so alone

And it'll be alright, yea, you'll soon see
And I'll bring my guitar there with me
So I can sing you a song
Like I promised a long time ago
And, I'll be there to sing to you

We can take turns on that old tire swing
And, I will promise I won't swing you too fast
And we'll laugh for all our good times
And smile for our good past

When the night finally creeps down
We can hold, hold each other close
We'll whisper extra quietly
Secrets only we know

And it'll be alright, yea, you'll soon see
And I'll bring my guitar there with me
So I can sing you a song
Like I promised a long time ago
And, I'll be there to sing to you
Track Name: Josephine
Josephine

Don't tell me Josephine
That I can't count on you
You're all I know
You're all I know

I was lookin' to you for guidance
In all life's senseless tasks
And, for your lessons

You were tossin' troubles over your shoulders
Takin' me on your road trip
I could count on you for cheap laughs

Don't tell me Josephine
That I can't count on you
You're all I know
You're all I know

You were spinnin' like a whirlwind
On a mysterious trip
I looked to you for freedom

And, when my car would break down
I could see you in the street, girl
There to help me write this song

Don't tell me Josephine
That I can't count on you
You're all I know
You're all I know
Track Name: Next Summer
Next Summer

Oh I love you darlin'
Even though you left me stranded right here
Girl, you hurt me so much
I nearly broke down and cried
when you ran off with that other guy

Oh I love you baby
I wish you'd never left me
But, you had to I guess
You had to move on
With your life

Don't think I resent you
'cause I still love you
And, maybe I'll see you next summer

Oh I love you darlin'
Oh I miss you baby
I wish you hadn't left me here
sittin' and cryin'
tears into my beer

Oh I love you darlin'
Oh I wish you were here
right next to me
And I still hope I see you next summer

Track Name: Break Me Slowly (Live)
Break Me Slowly (Thank God I'm Not Playing Piano Again)

Oh, lonely red shirt girl
won't you put the sunglasses down
let me see your eyes

There's no need to nibble nails
Nothing to get nerves about
Yea, it's alright

Let me champion your cause
and take you out to the bars
I'll let you write me off
as unimportant tonight

Go ahead and lead things on
go ahead and put on a show
maybe I'll never know

Dance all you want
Sing all you need
Cry on my sleeve

Just pretend that you don't see
How I study you constantly
Watching you twist and turn
Break me slowly
