In the leaves where the trees grow like water in the sea
Nature speaks to me
Something salty, Something sweet
I am naked in the dark
With my eyelids shining like flashlights
In the mist of our dirty playtime
And for the meantime
We are echoes of spring time

Way-ah way-ah way-ah way-ah….

She won’t return my sweet affection
You are elected and I am lucky to know you
And slowly, slowly but surely, she gets to know me
Man, I was lucky she knew me
And every single time I try to spew another line
It’s not the sanity I find, it’s how I lose my mind
Because the imagery you set is always
Natural and sexy
I’d be nicer if you let me but for now I think
That I will tuck away

Way-ah way-ah way-ah way-ah….

I can’t lose my muse and I probably can’t stay
I’m not worth your time, you’re my time of day

Way-ah way-ah way-ah way-ah….

    General CommentSaw this bad at Webster Hall opening for Dashboard Confessional. There were only 5 of 8 band members there, including a cello and a horn player, lol.

    What a pleasant surprise. The singer has a very unique and strong voice. You could tell they were nervous and humble to play NYC for the first time being that they hail from Toms River, NJ. The blonde singer (sorry don't know her name) could just not stop smiling and looked so happy all night. Great energy and just purchased their album. Hopefully everyone will know more about them very soon.

    "Something Salty I wrote about a crush I had on this girl down in Baltimore. I think I wrote Our New Intelligence the same day, and they are about the same person."
