Open Windows

about

Some time ago, I worked for a guy who had been a recording engineer in a previous life. We got the idea to book a day in the studio over thanksgiving, and spent a full afternoon and evening recording this song. The drum take was recorded about 2 in the morning and I was completely wiped out - we had done an earlier take when I wasn't tired, but actually, being tired helped - it has a swing that the earlier take didn't possess.

lyrics

Lyrics:
I saw something by the window.
I see something by the door.
Are you losing - have you lost it?
Or are you coming back for more?

Even faster, even hotter, than what you left for me to find.
Dirty footsteps on my pillow.
Broken hearts are on my mind.

And you know all I ask of you is this.
And you know standing silently is easy to resist.

Empty pages speaking volumes.
Treasures left for me to find.
And open windows mean nothing unless you slip inside.

I'm not one for lighting candles.
I'm not one for telling truths.
But every breath is soft beside me and picking up steam. I'm picking up steam.

And you know all I ask of you is this.
And you know standing silently is easy to resist.

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
