Lyrics

Degrees of Separation

Written By: Sam Behymer

we live most of our together lives with eyes on sky
hoping somebody will realize our worth
but the answer is a summary of truth and lie
and the darkness always brings us back to earth

goodness what you put me through
all these sunsets without you

no connection to the outside world
delusions flourishing
i underestimated each degree of separation
i'm not quite welcoming the bluebirds in
but i'm on my way

i ignore, of course, the gravity of one plus one
to embrace the sweet insanity of you
but if i lose myself at eventide and come undone
say you'll follow me and brave the darkness too

no connection to the outside world
delusions flourishing
i underestimated each degree of separation
i'm not quite welcoming the bluebirds in
but i'm on my way

i'm on my way

goodness what you put me through
all these sunsets without you

Hazy

Written By: Sam Behymer

the hills turn brown like skin
when so much sun comes pouring in on them
and i'm unwound again
i can't begin to know how to begin again

i'm young and wild and scared
of things that aren't and were not ever there
i do believe you care
but stars are hung by means of which we're not aware

if you are blue sky
then i am hazy
if you say yes
then i'll say maybe
if you're not here
well, then i am nowhere at all

the loaded gun comes first
a quick, humane disposal of the other words
in sounds so soft they hurt
you're teaching me that sometimes crying doesn't work

if you are blue sky
then i am hazy
if you say yes
then i'll say maybe
if you're not here
well, then i am nowhere at all

if you are blue sky
then i am hazy
if you say yes
then i'll say maybe
if you're not here
well, then i am nowhere at all

nowhere at all

Dear Los Angeles

Written By: Sam Behymer

dear los angeles dear dear
you are the stranger in my car
teach me to dream with the lights on
i didn't know we'd get along so well
where were we before they turned the lights on

oh i am skyline you are sky
without you i am nothing but straight lines

dear los angeles dear dear
how steely wide and wonderful you
learning to dance with my shades on
nobody sees so nobody will tell
l.a. the kid with the shades on

oh i am skyline you are sky
without you i am nothing but straight lines

l.a. the kid with the shades on

take the stairs with me
we have a city to see
los angeles i found you

If You Don't Mind

Written By: Sam Behymer

i work the fade you work the shine
they don't want your money they want your time
i'd rather walk if you don't mind
do you mind
i'll load the guns you hold the line
i happen to be very bad at goodbye
i'll have a go if you don't mind
do you mind

then i'll put this song over my head
to win you back
and you'll say baby baby we belong
knocking over hearts like banks
and running

i'll order out and you unwind
told you the weather would be divine
save me the best if you don't mind
do you mind
i am the words you be the spine
we can be dynamite when combined
just a bit late if you don't mind
do you mind

then i'll put this song over my head
to win you back
and you'll say baby baby we belong
knocking over hearts like banks
and running

we got it wrong
but i guess it's probably not our fault

i'll be the boss you be the mind
roll it down bleecker street meet me outside
table for two if you don't mind
do you mind

then i'll put this song over my head
to win you back
and you'll say baby baby we belong
knocking over hearts like banks
and running

we got it wrong
but i guess it's probably not our fault

then i'll put this song over my head
to win you back
and you'll say baby baby we belong
knocking over hearts like banks
and running
