about

Take this! A rough demo of our song "Morning Star" we recorded in Maggie's attic.

lyrics

My morning star,
are you waiting for someone
to tell you how lovely you are?
And are you scared
that you'll never find love
like the one at the top of the stairs?

I always planned on the four of us.
The cabinets and carpets we left to rust.
What simple children we were.

Stoned and nearly sleeping
the day we came to stay.
We hauled ass back to bedlam
watching winter fall away.
Fed and fighting dreams,
I held your hands between my own.
One for summer, one for snow
these hands will drag you home.

Who am I to compromise
everybody's here and we're waiting on a sunrise.
When you're sick and sad,
know Georgia is waiting at the state line.

Green and leaning fields here
have held us through it all.
Every copper coat of morning
when dawn is strung out and hanging on.
Stripped and shook from slumber,
we dance right through the day.
Oh, I am wishful, blue and wondering
how the hell I'll find my way.

But who am I to compromise
everybody's here and we're waiting on a sunrise.
When you're sick and sad,
know Georgia is burning down the shoreline.

I've got the wheel if you've got the will
to do this right and make a mess tonight
'cause Carolina's calling.
We'll find the appeal of the tiny thrills,
we've got time to kill
in the backyard where we started.

Who am I to compromise
everybody's here and I'm looking on the bright side.
When you're sick and sad know Georgia
is waiting at the state line.
