- indie pop for discerning and responsible citizens...

Hunter S Thompson once wrote something to this effect. The people love Jack Kennedy because they like the idea of having someone in charge who can drink whiskey by the White House pool with beautiful movie stars, but still trust to make the tough decisions at midnight. This is our approach to music. ... more

Track Name: All Year Round
I met you in the summer and we fell by fall
June, July, and August drinking white wine by the reservoir
Just three months I've know you by then I could have told ya
Who ya are

I'll love ya all year round
I wish I had the time to look back now
Spring summer fall
No I don't care at all
I'll love ya all year round

Winter lasts forever red wine and teary phone calls
But the cherry blossoms blooming
And the ice around our hearts had begun to thaw

I'll love ya all year round
I wish I had the time to look back now
Spring summer fall
No I don't care at all
I'll love ya all year round

You and I part ways hey wait
I though that you said
I was your man
You learned all that you could no woe
I understand that too
But I'll still wait for you

I'll love ya all year round
I wish I had the time to look back now
I'll love ya all year round
I wish I had the time to look back now
Spring summer fall
No I don't care at all
I'll love ya all year
I'll love ya all year
I'll love ya all year round
Track Name: The Sun
I bought a skeptic's point of view
from a man certain about his stake
In a world he never loved
I guess the earth then feels the same
I could have lied to my brothers
and told them they are what they claim
But on a fool's chance coin toss
The truth came

Cause you try to be the lonely kid all the girls think what a waste
Then you try to be the artist a ghost at the window's break
You are everything and nothing a vessel for what is not yet explained
Be everything that is loved be the sun

I bought a second hand toy car
from a child finished with this hate
He thought if he sold all his treasure
maybe the earth then he could save
His parents lied to him forever
in the hopes they could spar him pain
But on a fool's chance coin toss
the truth came

Cause you try to be the lonely kid all the girls think what a waste
Then you try to be the artist a ghost at the window's break
You are everything and nothing a vessel for what is not yet explained
Be everything that is loved be the sun

Just keep them coming
I'm at the poison bar
Where the neon lights shine bright like stars
Where the old men tell tales with bitter hearts
Don't blame the skeptic he just plays his destined part

Cause you try to be the lonely kid all the girls think what a waste
Then you try to be the artist a ghost at the window's break
You are everything and nothing a vessel for what is not yet explained
Be everything that is loved be the sun
Be the sun be the sun be the sun be the sun be the sun
Track Name: I'll Be True To You
Sorry I pulled you in
We float through this life of sin
The TV swears we're in love
I feel like a canon ball
ready to heed the call
my purpose dictated by design

Cause I'll be true to you honey
Yeah I'll be true to you girl
I'll Be true to you baby
Cause no one else will do yeah

You could remove the stains
From my heart and brain
Even my teeth i think
And I could clean up good
If you think i should
just ask me

Cause I'll be true to you honey
Yeah I'll be true to you
I'll Be true to you baby
Cause no one else will do

I promise I will give you more
then I gave before
just let me make it round the bend
I swear I see the change
I'm starting to feel my age
I don't know if it's my fault or yours

And while my body may not be perfect
For my spirit I think it's worth it
Just let me put my fingers on your scars
And while it's easy to feel them
You worked so hard to conceal them
Just let me see ya for who your are

Cause I'll be true to you honey
Yeah I'll be true to you
I'll Be true to you baby
Cause no one else will do
Cause no one else will do
yeah yeah
Track Name: Secrets
This is how I found the love of my life
was a guitar case and always saying goodbye
There was a moment when you held my hand
Then I ask it again in my head
What changed here and what happened when
We were so young and in love

Then you try but our cells still divid

And you would a changed me
and you would a broke my heart
I know it's a big fence
But you weren't going to fall from the start
You could a told me but
it was a secret

That's when I made a decision
That I would leave you right there and then
It was the first time I saw you cry
Cause I thought you were the strongest
Thought you thought your way around emotion
What changed here did you finally wake up

Then you try but our cells still dived

And you would a changed me
and you would a broke my heart
I know it's a big fence
But you weren't going to fall from the start
You could a told me but

Secrets hold high hand
In the game you got it figured out I guess
Secrets in the plan
So what the sun still rises and still it sets
Secrets the walls come down
There lies the truth can you hear the sound

And you would a changed me
and you would a broke my heart
I know it's a big fence
But you weren't going to fall from the start
You could a told me but

This is how I found the love of my life
was a guitar case and always saying goodbye
There was a moment when you held my hand
