about

Written and recorded over a weekend spent in Narragansett, RI.

Based on the theme of nostalgia for a childhood in suburban New England on misty days in 1992 playing Super Nintendo that none of us actually had.

Track Name: Days in Maine
do you remember all the snow?
laughing, remember all the snow floats gently down
and covers up the old New England town

do you remember the days in Maine?
evergreens and scan lines on the TV
cozy late nights watching movies side by side
there's no better way to pass the time

if you've got comfort keep it close
these are the days we miss the most
and every tune the walkman plays
contains a spirit or a ghost
and though many years are gone
you know the words to every song
and when you visit that old house
these are the times you think about

do you remember all the snow?
laughing, remember all the snow floats gently down
Track Name: Calendar Girls
wrap yourself inside these sheets
safe and sound on suburban streets
a calming mist descends this weekend
and we can keep each other warm

your hair is wet, you clothing damp
music plays from a cracking amp
the light is dim, i feel you breathing

oh no, I know
I know, I know

we took our bikes, rode down the hill
sat by the pond, cold and still
a calming mist, and love waits sweetly
but i still yearn for something more

power lines and plaster walls
desperate voices on public stalls
distract themselves, it doesn't matter
they still yearn for something more

oh no, I know
I know, I know
Track Name: Old Cassette
if you keep this fire
you will never find rest
there's a home for you

found an old cassette
filled with outside noise
take care of the ones who love you

lonely witness, have you lost yourself?
finding memories not your own

if you keep this fire
it could eat you up
there's a love for you

lonely witness, have you lost your way
finding memories not your own
Track Name: Petrichor
one day we will drive
to a place behind the pines

past yellow street lights
past yellow street lights
past yellow street lights
past yellow street lights

past yellow street lights
past yellow street lights
past yellow street lights
past yellow street lights

mommy can't pay her credit card
daddy's in his workshop, in the garage
