I'm sort of cheating, even thought I didn't tell you the rules. I was planning on just releasing these in the order I recorded them, but I wrote and recorded this the other night and I liked it better than anything else I had done, so, you know - here it is.
It's a quiet little song that, depending on your perspective, could be about stalking someone or could be about not giving up when you know you're meant to be together. Or maybe those are the same thing.
Usually I wake up in the middle of the night and I make myself some coffee before I call you.
And your voice comes on the phone, tired and confused and I hang up before you can hear me breathing, because I know that you're waiting.
It's true, and I know that it's still there. And why should I apologize for anything at all if you care? If you care.
Sometimes when I'm waiting in the bushes by your window, I get a little tired of pretending. And so I move towards the door like every time before, pausing for a second while you answer.
Because I know where this is going. I do, but I need these minutes with you. And I know what you would call this.
But that doesn't make it true.
