about

"Countless surprise twists and turns... Considering the tender ages of the band members and the unimpeachable pedigree of their influences, it seems likely enough that their next release will be even better"
-PITCHFORK

"Ten precious pop songs... Hands clap along behind arching falsetto choruses while keyboards bounce beside superbly sparse drums"
-BUST MAGAZINE

"A robust, energetic amalgamation of impeccable pop influences"
-MONTREAL MIRROR

"Enough songwriting smarts to match their undeniable enthusiasm... a performance that'll make their heroes accept them as peers"
-EYE WEEKLY

Track Name: Now Look What You've Done
My dear now look at what you've done
Were you only thinking of number one
You never stop to consider numbers two and three
You never stop to consider your mother and me
Now in a few days
You'll be on a plane flying miles away from me
You're stationed overseas

And now that you've signed the dotted line
Is it really too late to change your mind
You should really think it over if it's not too late
You should really think it over for your own sake
Your mother's a mess
But she'll get it together, now do what's best for you
And maybe this country of ours too

We always knew you'd leave
But we never thought the day would come so soon
It's so hard to believe
That the day has come to live on without you
And we shouldn't ever have to
Track Name: Check Your Messages
Would you love me again if I gave it all away
If I told you how I felt about the way you play
You were crazy 'bout me, now you swear that it's through
And that you don't love me, but I still love you

Yeah she needs it
Well she needs you to need her the way that she wants to be needed

A while ago you used to call me nightly on the phone
You were always telling me that we should spend some time alone
B-b-baby you got bad to the bone

Now you don't return my calls, I haven't seen you in a while
And you're working your way up on someone else's speed dial
You probably tell him all the things you told me
Playing hearts like cards - baby you're the queen

If I turn my back now I can walk away
I'd never look back with nothing left to say

Yeah she needs it
Well she needs you to need her the way that she wants to be needed

Well you never were a gambler and I know you hate to lose
So you'll probably want me back as soon as you get the news
That even if you want me now, there's no use

Bye bye baby goodbye
Track Name: Before We Arrive
I poured resolve in a bottle and drank it up
I saw no need for a cup
When I got to the bottom I grinned at the very last drop
And it told me to wait 'til the minute hand makes it around
Turn it over and upside down
'Til the time reads the same as it did when you decided to let me down

Sunshine...

I scaled you down to a map that's not to size
We plot the lows and the highs
'Til the destination reaches us before we arrive
And we exit to five, four, three, two
Wonder if we're minding the cues

Sunshine...
Track Name: Along Comes a Smile
I bet you wish now
You'd given yourself twenty extra minutes
Now you wallow in the regrets and stare at the floor
Wishing life had more of you doing less

You're not sure what it's all for
But stop a while
Along comes a smile

Oh what a system
You can't beat them, get up and go to work
Give in like a jerk, give in to get out

You're not sure what it's all for
But stop a while
Along comes a smile
Track Name: Really, Really, Really
There's no one else like you
It's true
It's really, really, really, really true
My heart belongs to only you
Because you love me the way you do
We'll be sleeping in and traveling

I can't dream a dream a dream and not dream you
It's true
It's really, really, really, really true
I look forward to life where there is you
What a thing to say, but truly my dear I do
We'll buy groceries and have bite to eat
Oh, why live for today, when you can live forever

Many things do come and go but love is for tomorrow

I can't think a thought that is not you
It's true It's really, really, really, really true
That is not a thought to misconstrue
Put plainly, all I'll ever want is you
We'll be sleeping in and traveling
Oh, why live for today, when you can live forever

Many things do come and go but love is for tomorrow
Line your dreams up in a row and follow them so far, oh
Many things do come and go but love is for tomorrow
Track Name: The Day After Margaret
I keep trying hard to leave
But you keep pulling at my sleeve
And now I know why

Sun did dance and birds did sing
'Cause leaving you was the greatest thing
And now you know too
Track Name: Take Me to the Sun
I see a big fat star in the sky
It's got our name written along the side
It seems like things are looking up
I guess it helps when nothing's ever good enough

We built a house on a bad foundation
Now it collapsed into new motivation
Well here it is
We'll let it all hang out

We're getting warmer
It's getting hotter
Now take me to the sun
We're getting louder
We're getting closer
We're ready for the sun

Rain, rain, go away
Come back another day
Rain, rain, go away
Don't come back

I see a big fat star in the sky
It's got our name written along the side
It seems like things are looking up
I guess it helps when nothing's ever good enough

You give it time, it'll give you no guarantees
You give it love, it'll give you false hopes and dreams
Now give it wings, and it'll get you around

We're getting warmer
It's getting hotter
Now take me to the sun
Track Name: A Different Ship
You were a man that had it all
Now you've thrown it all away
You let a little of the inside out
Something we weren't ready to see

Pick it up and don't drop it
Hurry up and don't let us down
'Cause if you can bait it, we will bite it
Or at least for now

You saved a dime, spent a dollar
But you'll pay for it all eventually
Collected interest on your interest
In taking it personally

You took a little too much of
Other people's advice but you claimed it was free
Eventually you let a little of the inside out
Something we weren't ready to see

Put your hands in your pockets
Hang your head and leave this town
'Cause you've given the reason your bait's out of season

Mr. Green, don't turn your back around
You sailed away on a different ship

You taught yourself to run
You never learned to hide
Now if you slip
You won't be hard to find
