about

TINKA

we limited ourselves
to a casiotone 405
and a microphone

as we locked ourselves

away

behind a wood

in a house

on a street

called peter pan lane.

Track Name: poor boy
poor boy, you sung to me
and i fell so heavily
but i was just looking for something
that would complete me without spiting

so, i'll find comfort that you know
there's places i'd like to go
with you.

try to fall asleep without thinking of me
because i lost all your love and interest
to the monster of a head i live in

so, i'll find comfort that you know
there's places i'd like to go
with you.

i can't seem to sleep until the sun comes up
because you held me naked once
and said we'd make it but we gave up.
Track Name: pocket
i've recorded a collection of things
that i would say to you if i could

they'll be in my pocket for now
and i'll take them out when i feel like i should

because i'm pushing you away from me;
pretending to leave and taking the car keys

i grew so tired of being desperate;
breaking my own heart as you held it

you don't want to talk about it, you just want to tell me i'm wrong

i'm a dime a dozen so i guess i should be forgotten

i grew so tired of being desperate;
breaking my own heart as you held it

i'm just so tired of being messed with
waiting in my car for nothing

you don't want to talk about it, you just want to tell me i'm wrong
Track Name: we were strong
close your tired eyes
and picture the sea
under the night

the moon being the light
lighting the last
moments of life

and tell me, how it is
that you can do just that
and not begin to believe
in something bigger than what we have

it's what keeps me up, so late at night,
that there's a chance
that we are meant to be in a way i don't understand

so, let's fight this war; it lives inside
and we can at least say we tried

we were strong
before them all
Track Name: i'm screwed
when the night surrounds my home
and i feel all alone, it's true
my thoughts find their way back to you

i can walk down the same old streets
without you next to me but i'm screwed,
they always lead back to you

i can try to explain myself,
i can tell you what i mean
but it always means the same thing

i can try to find connection
in people not worth a mention
but it's true, i only find myself in you

i lose myself like everyone else
in this city that feels like hell
but it's always safe on the way to your place

where i love you with my eyes closed,
at late hours, alone
and just holding my hands on your face

please don't let me leave again
i'm sorry about where my mind's been
but know it's true,
my thoughts always lead back to you
