Lyrics

Dismount

Written By: Melody Grove

I took my love to the liquor line
We bought a fifth just to buy some time
Somebody said she had attitude
There ain’t no cause for bein’ so rude

But here you go insulting her
She’ll let it go but she’ll get hers

When you tell me it ain’t cool
To be breakin’ the rules—ooh yeah
That’s what rock and roll’s supposed to do
And if it doesn’t it ain’t really true

Floating on this cloud
Praising you for what you do

She ain’t no trick to be sellin’ out
She had a mission yeah there’s no doubt
To many fools came rushin’ in
Strappin’ on tools just like instruments

Missed what the words were tellin’ them
They heard the music but that’s not when

Somebody told em’ it ain’t cool
To be breakin’ the rules—ooh yeah
That’s what rock and roll’s supposed to do
And if it doesn’t it ain’t really true

Floating on this cloud
Praising you for what you do
For what you do
It’s a rock and roll dismount
Let’s show everyone what we do
When we’re alone
And it’s just me and you
Me and you

Candy Apple Red

Written By: Melody Grove

We gotta find a plan
Exempt from the man
Running through your hands
Shakin’ like a lamb
Get it through your head, oh yeah,
It’s candy apple red

In any other land
They wouldn’t understand
The protocols and plans
Convictions at hand
Get it through your head, oh yeah,
It’s candy apple red

Can you love a man
Even when he falls through your hands?
There’s no other plans
So you better get hip to the fallin’
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
My, oh, my
Wanna touch the sky

Oh, I think I'll try

Foolish Paradise

Written By: Melody Grove

It’s a foolish paradise
A little death a little life
Another change of the mind
Oh, don’t you know what I’m like?
This carries on all the time
Another praise to the shrine
Of material life
Sex, drugs, rock and roll times

And I know how I cope
I awoke while you spoke
Somebody said somethin’ ‘bout a whirlwind baby
But I know it don’t mean much

Do you wanna take a little time?
I wanna happen on the lines
Somewhere, somethin', summertime

It’s a foolish paradise
You’re tellin’ truth tellin’ lies
Underneath the disguise
Oh, don’t you know what I’m like?

This carries on all the time
Another praise to the shrine
Of material life
Sex, drugs, rock and roll times

And I know how I cope
I awoke while you spoke
Somebody said somethin’ ‘bout a white line baby
And I know it don’t mean much

Do you wanna take a little time?
I wanna happen on the lines
Somewhere, something, summertime

All along the ocean floor today
Life forms coming and going either way
This plague of somethin’
Evil picture show
Night times, noondays, mornin’s
I don’t know

The Sea, The Sky

Written By: Melody Grove

Terrible
Tell me would it be so terrible
To find the innocence and truth
In finding out too soon?

Would it be so terrible? (Terrible)
Does it feel unbearable?
(Unbearable)

Sparable
Are you selling something sharable
Like the sea, the sky and you
'Cause you're part of this too

Would it be so terrible? (Terrible)

I'm your one time loverman
Your two-headed trouser snake
(From a fairy tale)
And as far as I'm concerned
All I've been tryin' to save is your
face
(I just wanna save your pretty face)

Chorus:

Would it be so...terrible
To find the innocence of youth
Would it be so...terrible
Within the sea, the sky and you
Would it be so...terrible
To be an awful lot like you--yeah
Would it be so...terrible
In the sea, the sky and you
Would it be so?

Frequency Thing

Written By: Melody Grove

Well you know I been thinkin' it's a
shame
And if you don't there's no reason
here to say
That I don't ever contemplate the
day
We'll be making the most of some
most peculiar ways

I just let go when you held out your
hand
Don't be surprised when I say let's
be friends
Like every good blues got ta feel it
and sting
I'm goin' back for the brass ring

When it goes and the feelin' starts
to fade
Think of me and then you'll make it
anyway
Without the ghost of regretting
anything
Be the toast of the town when you
start to sing

But I wanna know by the touch of
your hand
Where might it start and then
where will it end
All you can do is just get up and
sing
I'm goin' back for the brass ring

I pray very soft
Sometimes it's not audible at all
But I prayed to my god for you girl
That's when it hit me like a song
The words were all wrong
I thought I had known you all along
But you were something that was
so brand new girl
It was true love

Chorus:

I'm playin' hard on your heart
strings
'Cause makin' love is the hardest
thing
