Got my head in the clouds, and my feet on the ground Guided by fate and sound Follow stars in the dark, to the speed of our hearts, This is the way we part No matter what you said before I don’t believe no more I can’t believe no more To go on hand in hand, was the way that we planned By way of the sea or land Cutting through rising tide, we forget and divide Now we go on untied No matter what we said before I don’t believe no more I can’t believe no more No matter what you said before I don’t believe no more I can’t believe no more

Pink and yellow roses by your bed Dripping like the words unsaid Never mind the things we’ll never know Pink and yellow roses in your vase Tripping light across your face Never mind the things we’ll never show What would you do with all that love Just throw away? People walk by and end up falling by mistake What would you do with all that love Just throw away? People walk by and end up further every day Pink and yellow roses by your bed Stealing lines from books you’ve read Never mind the things we’ll never know Pink and yellow roses in my head Getting by on promises Never mind the things we’ll never grow What would you do with all that love Just throw away? (falling so hard for you now) People walk by and end up falling by mistake (falling, I keep falling down) What would you do with all that love Just throw away? (falling so hard for you now) People walk by and end up further every day (falling so hard) What would you do with all that love Just throw away? (falling so hard for you now) People walk by and end up falling by mistake (falling, I keep falling down) What would you do with all that love Just throw away? (falling so hard for you now) People walk by and end up further every day (falling so hard) Pink and yellow roses by your bed Dripping like the words unsaid Never mind the things we’ll never know

Every girl you’ve had Is the cheapest thing Bought and sold it’s sad When you need something If you want to know The ruse is up it’s clear we see through It’s nothing that new We can’t compete it’s all about you You’re trying too hard You’re trying too hard You’re trying too hard to please me You know you can’t ever keep me You’re trying too hard You’re trying too hard You’re trying too hard to please me You know you just can’t deceive me Who could really care If you need a thing You don’t have a prayer But your still asking If you ever cared, You would see that lying’s cut through It’s your blood that drew Keep on sinking It’s coming to you And you've no regard for what you're doing Pass us all by left in ruin Cities fall but you'll keep moving But there one thing you’ll never get, So give on me darling you’re just Trying too hard (And you keep on) You’re trying too hard (And you keep on pushing) You’re trying too hard to please me You know you can’t ever keep me You’re trying too hard (And you keep on) You’re trying too hard (And you keep on pushing) You’re trying too hard to please me You know you just can’t deceive me

When the sun starts setting in the golden haze All I can think of is you

 When the lights go out and the darkness shades
 All I can think of is you Touch me with your lies
 Seduce me with disguise Touch me with your lies
 Abuse me with closed eyes When our eyes catch fire at the slightest gaze All I can think of is you When one night apart’s like twenty days All I can think of is you Touch me with your lies
 Seduce me with disguise Touch me with your lies
 Abuse me with closed eyes

We got our start on the silver street With all the sages and palms And in the day we lie down to sleep With the turntable on And when you went on your way I didn’t ask you to stay We made our way to the kingdom keep Fall into beauty and gold We drink the wine and blow the smoke Fill up the empty & cold But when you went on your way I couldn’t ask you to stay Hey, got my hand on my heart hope to die You’ve got your mind and your eyes on the sky Yeah, hold your hand to my heart hope to die I’ll keep your head and your heart in the sky I made my way on the silver street I walk from dusk to the dawn Without you here I will never sleep I keep the dream moving on And when you come back my way I’ll hope that this time you’ll stay Hey, got my hand on my heart hope to die You’ve got your mind and your eyes on the sky Yeah, hold your hand to my heart hope to die I’ll keep your head and your heart in the sky Friend or foe I held my hand out for you And with the same breath I took before I said- I’d never leave you Hey, got my hand on my heart hope to die You’ve got your mind and your eyes on the sky Yeah, hold your hand to my heart hope to die I’ll keep your head and your heart in the sky

They used to say that I owned this town Hold my head way up high I wore my pride like a golden crown Never wondering why I’d always win at the same low steaks Read the room with one eye The newest trends in our politics I was first to arrive Running from the man, still got open hands Generation of demands, leaves me singing Suffering my soul Sees the reason why Answers that we find Leave us wide eyed Hold it in your hand See the other side Then burn it from your mind From your mind I know is easy to chase the crowd You’re never really alone I ruled a city that knew my name But I was never at home They whisper now how I lost my crown Ain’t it sad how it goes But now I say what I want to say And I reap what I sow Running from the man, still got open hands Generation of demands, leaves me singing Suffering my soul Sees the reason why Answers that we find Leave us wide eyed Hold it in your hand See the other side Then burn it from your mind From your mind

Fall on me now Weight of the tired gun Defended light, fall to the bed, with the sleeping sun Voice in my head Tale of a silent life Strength in my hand, held in a veil, her gentle knife Fall on me now Quiet power of my heavenly sound Deep underground, I make light with my heavenly sound And the falling dove, brings no peace nor blood But leaves me unbound And falls on me now A heavenly sound In sleeping be Weightless of what I know Unanswered need covered and held by blanket snow covered and held by blanket snow Fall on me now Quiet power of my heavenly sound Deep underground, I make light with my heavenly sound And the falling dove, brings no peace nor blood But leaves me unbound And falls on me now A heavenly sound Keep where you’re going Fall in the dark Say you’re the only one Keep where you’re going Fall in the dark Say you’re the only one Fall on me now Quiet power of my heavenly sound Deep underground, I make light with my heavenly sound And the falling dove, brings no peace nor blood But leaves me unbound And falls on me now A heavenly sound

I can’t keep you off my mind But I’m only a girl With a suitcase and the world I can’t trust you with my time Cuz I like what I heard But they’re just some little words Ooh, waking up with you There’s so much more to find I wanted you to kill my mind I wanted you to kill my mind Ooh, waking up with you There’s beauty in the dark I wanted to forget my heart I wanted to forget my heart I can’t keep you on the line If I’m only a girl And that’s just a little word I can’t trust you til you’re mine When I like what I heard But it all feels so absurd Ooh, waking up with you There’s so much more to find I wanted you to kill my mind I wanted you to kill my mind Ooh, waking up with you There’s beauty in the dark I wanted to forget my heart I wanted to forget my heart I know what you want me to do I know that you wanted it too I know what you want me to do I know that you wanted me too Ooh, waking up with you There’s so much more to find I wanted you to kill my mind I wanted you to kill my mind Ooh, waking up with you There’s beauty in the dark I wanted to forget my heart I wanted to forget my heart

It's the End 03:45
It’s the end And it didn’t even start It’s the end Now we watch it fall apart I don’t know what I’m thinking Broken hearts still feel more breaking I don’t know why But it’s the end It’s the end And it didn’t even start Yeah it’s the end Why’d you leave me in the dark? I don’t know what I’m drinking Help me out I feel it fading I don’t know why Gimme something real Cuz my blood’s running cold Don’t care how it feels Just tell me no It’s too late to go back Cuz I showed you my hand So watch it fade to black This is the end It’s the end And it didn’t even start It’s the end Did you know it from the start? I don’t know what I’m thinking Broken hearts still feel more breaking I don’t know why But it’s the end Gimme something real Cuz my blood’s running cold Don’t care how it feels Just tell me no It’s too late to go back Cuz I showed you my hand So watch it fade to black This is the end

Thinking of the early times Where we used to stay, Where we used to lie Our journey took a million paths I knew you in a hundred ways Seen you in a thousand skies Cmon, can you see me We could go out again Cmon, can you see me We could go out again Standing by the underpass Soaking from the rain Too numb to know why Sleeping through the bluest days Caught up in so many ways Dreaming of your diamond eyes Cmon, can you see me We could go out again Cmon, can you see me We could go out again But did we ever think of why? Tender letters became cries If we stop to give a try Cmon, can you see me We could go out again Cmon, can you see me We could go out again

about

“‘Waking Up With You’ nods to the glory days of shimmering college-rock, back when groups like 10,000 Maniacs and the Sundays briefly ruled the roost. There’s even a late-Eighties sheen to the chorus, where guitar arpeggios share equal space with Belle’s crystalline croon.” – Rolling Stone

“Shoegazey pop band Nightjacket make dreamy, lovesick jams for nocturnal settings. Wailing, MBV-ish guitars headline ‘You’re Trying Too Hard’, followed by Belle’s sultry, melancholic delivery.” – Stereogum

"Shifting between precise, thunderous, and wide-open Americana-tinged verses, it’s Belle’s soaring, classically trained vocals that give ‘Waking’ its wings." – FLOOD Magazine

about

Nightjacket Los Angeles, California

“‘Lonely Archer’ is just a pixel of the portrait to come from Nightjacket’s marriage
with Wasse and recalls the vocal styles of Mazzy Star, standing on textures of
dreamy-sedative alt-pop.” – American Songwriter

“Buoyed by smoky, chanteuse-like vocals, Nightjacket’s lush dream-pop taps into
the heavily nostalgic vibes of bands like Mazzy Star and Beach House.” – SPIN
