Love So Well 04:23
I love so well when I am leaving But can I breathe in the filth and keep believing The power lines a sprawl of crosses A whistle high on the wind of the end of all things The end of all things that refuse to change As the light falls from my face All my history is outpaced I find A new peace of mind headlights start to dot the lanes I could be anyone I aim my future with my hands I am no one now And I have seen Your likeness blooming In foreign fields on a screen And I know nothing Your mouth at work on some new laughter Your eyes a childhood home filled with strangers We are strangers but it's alright now As the light falls from my face All my history is outpaced I find A new peace of mind headlights start to dot the lanes I could be anyone I aim my future with my hands I am no one now Over and over now like the hand you run through your hair The visions return each time I close my eyes you're there I hope that that the night holds you up to the deaths head and makes you see Every part of you that was a part of me The end of all things The end of all things I was crying but I'm alright now

Rose Room 04:35
The sound of the door my father closed and left me alone in the wild city where the days of nothing much yawned out before me and became my life I guess holiday drunk forever woke up in jeans on my bed the hours gone like punched out teeth Cal across the table on east 9th like an angel in the steam reached out through the dream I was caught in first to wake me in a year the light pours down it calls you out who are you now so I found a friend and a couch and I sat down to sweat it out every day I felt the void underneath me but I didn’t look down I tightened my grip on the subway pole and the soft flick of pages on the shower of light from the rose room windows on my fellow failures to do anything well is an act of love and I needed love to save my life so I cut the cable to the world and its hatred of the lonely and while the darkness fell on midtown banks the light stayed on beside me the light pours down it calls me out who are you now yeah I found a friend and a couch and I sat down to sweat it out every day I felt the void underneath me but I didn’t look down there in the rose room among all the old glory of new york among all the people with no other warm place they could go I set out to save my life

about

"Love So Well"

Sung by Katie Von Schleicher, “Love So Well” is a country rock song with traces of Neil Young and Big Star, about giving up on the greatest love you’ve had in your life, and the strange calm that follows. A dream of losing yourself on the great American equalizer - the highway. “I aim my future with my hands / I am no one now.”

"Rose Room"

Crackling with anxiety and defiance, “Rose Room” sounds something like Spoon if they were more desperate and less cool, with flashes in a few choice moments of the brashness and humor of AC/DC. It is a song about the intersection of two truths. First, the tightrope we all walk to stay sane in a completely insane environment. Second, the moment when you understand that you’re the only one steering the ship and if you do nothing, you will crash. No saviors waiting in the wings.
