Stay 15

about

A little pop song that blossomed in the studio - written several years ago, it was, for a long time, just the acoustic guitar part and the lyrics, then when I had a chance to flesh it out, it all just kind of came together. I like this one a lot.

lyrics

And when the words were sticking together,
I wouldn't crack my lips for a smile.
But when I thought that you were close to overflowing,
I waited too long, with a cigarette style.

And everyone is changing their answers.
And everyone is fleeing the scene.
And you and I are coming to our senses,
almost too late to see what it means.

So happier now, take a breath in the car again,
and throw your arm to the curve of the air.
When your hair wraps around, touching your eyelid,
I can turn from the road and fold in a stare.

And everyone is moving behind us.
And everyone is caught in a dream.
But we are too far away to hear them,
even if we only stay 15.

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.
