It’s a question that I never learned to ask,
How far I’d follow you into the dark, & it’s
still a question that I’m too afraid to ask, how
far I’d follow you. When she saw that I’d
tattooed my hands, I said “Mum, I don’t
think I was ever going to work for the
bank.” & I said that I was sorry about
that line, I only wrote it ‘cause it rhymed.
We’re not those kids sitting on the swing set,
& I will follow you across the planet if we
could take our time, we’d get it right.
He was so bitter when he said “they’ll
offer you the world but they’ll leave you for dead”
& nobody tried to understand,
or at least act surprised when I said
that I wasn’t the one who was
unfaithful, but I can see why people
thought I was. Sometimes making love is
the only time I’ve ever felt love, there was
never any middle ground.
Now he sits alone in his one bedroom
apartment. Tells himself he’s happy & he
made the right decisions. & he expected
that I was gonna fail and back.
Well, fuck that.
I’ll wait for you, at the end of the earth
is where I’ll wait for you. You can meet
me there, see I never really stray
‘cause my head just gets too loud that I
can’t hear the words coming out of your
mouth. Sorry I don’t react the way you
want me to sometimes. I only wrote it
‘cause it rhymed.
Your silhouette against the fire. Where I
thought I saw a UFO but it was just
a lighter. And we nearly died, shit I’m
still amazed how we survived. You
probably shouldn’t let me drive.

This album is so painfully beautiful. Julien's voice is delicately strained and her words paint vignettes that range from delicate somber memories to muted pain. The guitar tones and thin texture of the layering leave this album feeling very intimate and raw. Among the best things I've heard this past year. Jake Gussman
