Mari KiraLou Hamade I fell in love with an instagram post a year ago. I've been waiting for a year to see if it would turn into something more. I was not disapointed. Hauntingly beautiful. Favorite track: mellow yellow.

Track Name: can i go home?
hold still it stings like bees marking your skin
a pain so shortly lived
attend to the wounds a cover up to heal an accident

it's real close and i can't stop missing what is here
can i go home before all the changes begin to show?

it's a long way but i feel so full
i could fill up the tank for miles and miles
and drive through the haze
and sift through the piles of cold hands

what could i hold that doesn't keep me afraid?
or stuck in denial
and how do i leave?
i feel like a child again.
Track Name: when does it count?
was that an invite for me?
i’m sorry but i don’t think that i will be free that day
but yes i would still like to see you soon
see you soon please

when does it count?
when you’re around
why can’t it be every time?

when does it count?
when you’re around
why can’t it be every time?

memories around the season
drive round the block
are you sure now?
asking you twice

trace the part where you are here
back in the car
are we headed
for something good?

staircases lead to the deed
i’m taking my pride
and my grief to the seat
it’s settled
i’ll walk myself back to the seed
and grow past this and believe

when does it count?
when you're around
why can't it be every time?
Track Name: mellow yellow
mellow yellow, wading your way
i can not swim
but i sure can wait for blue water to part
blue water to part

home street, kids out to play
i still remember that age
when love was just mom and dad
nothing was too far to be had.
Track Name: not what i thought
oh dearest my only fear is
you're back to lying
i'm tired of trying to fool
my heart into gold
it's not what i told myself i would do
before there was you.
Track Name: there's nothing that i can do
love, my baby is gone
i'm holding onto past words
thought we were so strong
thought nothing could break the bond
but my baby is gone
there's nothing else that i want
my baby is gone
there's nothing that i can do.
Track Name: walking in reverse
thought i had something to tell you
but how would you respond?
i know it’s all wrong
but a week feels so long

i’m sure you’ve been busy
forgetting my face
extending the space
i thought we would fill up

walking in reverse
i’m upside down
you’re fading out

walking in reverse
i’m upside down
you’re fading out
Track Name: i need a friend
friday was the day i thought that i would pick up myself on the way
and maybe there'd be no delay
i'd get your invitation and respond in the right time frame
a little sprinkle of this and that to clear
a heavy burden so bold yet so sheer
am i slouching again?
will drinking water wash out the dread?

oh i will save a spot just in case you change your mind
parking lots are full of drugs
but cars still stay in line
oh i don't wanna be the one to tell you no
but i don't know you like before
reasoning out the weeds like a talking could get straight to the core

was there more to say?
i thought i struck the head of the nail

i want a friend who i can trust to watch my bag when i get up
i need a friend who loves me back.

but if you're headed to the ice box could you grab the coldest water for me?
i'm so tired of the talking
running from the thought of dropping
everything to be beside you
i'm not sure but i could try to
be the one to keep you company
is this really what you want from me

and i can keep the current steady
make sure meals are hot and ready
let me know when you're open to getting past all that's been spoken.
Track Name: are you ever coming back?
are you ever coming back?
i’m not sure how to act
when everything is not the same
and you’ve been putting up your guard
talking is very hard
i’m not sure what to say to get to you

i’ve never been this far from me
i took a trip into the least possible place you’d think i’d be
i’m scared of losing what seems to be love
i’m so sure that it was love
how is it done?
i’m so sure i need your love

are you ever coming back?
i’m not sure how to act
when everything is not the same
and you’ve been putting up your guard
talking is very hard
i’m not sure what to say to get to you
Track Name: i want a house
i want a house to call my own with good foundation set in stone
i'd let you in, i'd let you stay
i don't wanna get foolish with my words
held against me proving what is mine and yours
could we take it easy for the road?

i'd trade you spots if it meant no more games
we're losing anyway
so let's take the dive
give it all of our fight
come on, let's try.

here the dogs run free on a vacant scene so happy with no needs.
i want that and more like worries to fall short
a safe spot in return
to be sure.
Track Name: why'd you have to go?
just when i think that i am ready to forget
moments catch on easy
disregard the steps it takes
to run away from something i did not expect
it hurts to see you from a distance
like we never ever met

why'd you have to go?
