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

Track Name: Don't Follow
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
Track Name: Good Bet, Goodbye
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
Track Name: The Wave That Lost The Sea
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
Track Name: Seconds
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
Track Name: Moment Of Clarity
I feel it now
I’m feeling now
It stopped somehow
And I’ll try next time
Track Name: Late Bloomer
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
Track Name: That's How The Other Half Sleeps
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
Track Name: Anhedonia
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
Track Name: Brave
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
