about

Written and recorded on a single Halloween evening after everyone else was in bed in a sugar coma, this came out of a week-long binge of listening to the podcast "Where Should We Begin" by Esther Perel. Each episode of the podcast consists of an interview with a couple who is experiencing a crisis of some kind in their relationship. The song that came out of that... the music is spare, and the lyrics take the shape of an argument that no one wants to have and that no one will win. But it's good that they're willing to try.

lyrics

Start over
This isn't the only thing
Hit rewind
I'm standing next to you
It isn't a failure of nerve or a response to fear, a tendency to flight I know
This isn't me standing next to you
This isn't me standing next to you

I know what you know and I'm sorry
I know what you know

It's always first and last and a failure to connect, I drop the line I drop the line
It's always my fault and your fault and everybody's watching, everybody's watching
Try something, try nothing, it's all the same to me

Slow down and try something new, like in a dream
Give it meaning, give it shape - your shape is what you have
But where should we begin
Where should we begin
Where should we

about

limesix Orlando

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.
