Don't Follow 02:42
Tracing this one track down Whispered voices bringing you down Every night spent driving around Looking for something you can’t say Pack your poison head for the coast Trading open arms for open roads Slowly turn yourself into a ghost And then you find yourself on your way Your way “Don’t follow” is coming back to me Quiet my heart and I’ll bite my tongue And leave the things that you left undone And every star that follows the sun With sparkles spelling out your name Your name “Don’t follow” is coming back to me

There’s a certain kind of ease In wearing your heart out on your sleeve Like a promise you know you can’t believe It’s gone good bet, good bye, good baby maybe Gone good bet goodbye, good bet goodbye A photograph, an aging smile A fashion address that’s out of style Running away to wait awhile It’s gone good bet, good bye, good baby maybe Gone good bet goodbye, good bet goodbye Chose most everything that harms me And everything alarms me a song without a sound Ghost those little things that haunt me Only that you want me when I am not around It’s gone good bet, good bye, good baby maybe Gone good bet goodbye, good bet goodbye

In the mind, the diamond slip Reflections of a time when Picture painted words come back to me A time to race aboard the ship Born to feel the wild wind No arms hold me now, my thoughts are free And then to rise, ha ha surprise The wave that lost the sea A minor key, a dancing air A trip aboard to new lands Crashing waves around the sail-like wing Far away, the little room Removed from all that I see Picture painted words, my heart still sings And then to rise, ha ha surprise The wave that lost the sea

Seconds 05:33
There’s a feeling in the air And if you’re going there Remember it to me Some place sometime ago I thought that you should know It’s where I learned to be The thought that I had found I’d follow you tomorrow if I could only leave A child that never knows The feelings never show The day that breaks just like a heart you go The thought that I had found There’s autumn on the ground It changes everyday Trace the time in sand And try to understand When all things passed away There’s a color in your eyes And I can see tomorrow you’re coming back and then Play hide and seek with time And stay with your own kind And I could never see you again Now there’s something in the way All the seconds fly away Only to heaven go Unheard and no repent And all the time that we spent To make a lovely show At night to say a prayer The feeling of tomorrow Could be like yesterday But once the day is done The time spent in the sun Is all I hope you’ll want to take away

I feel it now I’m feeling now It stopped somehow And I’ll try next time

Late Bloomer 01:51
Try to hide your crying eyes Soft you weep then off to sleep The moon hangs low and spreads across the sky Reflected stars sparkle in your eye Shadows filling the hall Changing shapes appear on your wall Comets race and leave no trace Slow the town is closing down Disappearing for another day Sleep and dream of something else to say Every moment counts in the night The scene will hide before daylight
9.
First you find your high law The current hypocrisy Close the blind Eyes trained not to see When you’re climbing over them Somewhere in the world It’s a long way down Don’t drop your crown on me Decide what your life is worth in a day You find it all the same Sizing up your every gain Cold shadow and fever sweat in the night Mind wracked with doubt Cover your head to shut it out You start the day by saying no Next you find your high love hypo critic currency You claim it all And how to fake a fall When you’re laughing over them Watching and wait to see What you’ll do Someone’s back is to you Decide what your life is worth in a day You find it all the same Sizing up your every gain Cold shadow and fever sweat in the night Mind wracked with doubt Cover your head to shut it out You start the day by saying no

Anhedonia 03:25
I wouldn’t have noticed all day But something in your eye I knew at second sight That you’d come out tonight And chance a dance or disco Leave the rest inside Go catch the world In slideshows under fluorescent light Our way out of Our way out of here I had a feeling all day The morning spent the same way The job that gives the same pay That sums up in the night So put on all your makeup And everything you think of The temporary change of Your life for just tonight Our way out of Our way out of here
11.
Brave 04:12
Peace now Soon to sleep Breathe out It’s all you need How soon the time flies away Years ago Come back to me You should know Just one thing You held my heart From the start In the room the lights are soon to fade away One thing in mind and you’re so kind to stay But I was young and I was brave in mind Following the voice I heard In time I found you too

about

Night's Bright Colors #5.

"Late Bloomer tempers its experimentations with more familiar indie-pop offerings. The writing, throughout, is thoughtful and even at the heaviest moments, Late reveals little true aggression. Moments of reverb-charged angst are followed by passages of acoustic strings and gently-thrumming beats that propel the song cycle along." -Alli Marshall
