Debut Morningsiders EP
----------
Lyrics:
----------

Dots

Verse 1:
Do you ever unfocus your eyes?
You can see the spots, the dots, they float across the sky

Chorus:
If my priorities take you by surprise, they’re are dots in my eyes
I’m telling lies to get out of socializing
If my priorities take you by surprise, they’re are dots in my eyes
I’m telling lies to get out of socializing

Verse 2:
Oh my god, what have I done this time?
Do you know that feeling when you first wake up?
You forget, I forget, I forgot my name

Chorus


--------------------
Twenty-Five

Verse 1:
I was 25, when I found my love and I felt alive and nothing ever could be so fine, as I was going home
3 years of my life, I finally got my family right and nothing ever could be so fine, I was going home
I was 32, forgot about love til I thought about you and nothingness seemed what to do, I was headed home
When I met a friend of mine I hadn’t seen in quite some time, we made talk til half-past nine, I am going home

Chorus:
I’m not going back, I’m not gonna unpack my mistakes anymore
Is it a mistake if it leave you better off than before?
I’m decorating my walls with pictures of the things I wanted most of all
Maybe this time, I’ll get it right

Verse 2:
I was 54, I packed my bags walked out the door, and didn’t tell her just what for, I am going home
Not my finest time, at least I did it without lying, I know she’ll be just fine, I am going home

- Chorus -

Verse 3:
I was 25, when I found my love and I felt alive and nothing else has been so fine, I am going home
Another year of my life, still trying to get my family right and nothing ever could be so fine, as I am going home


--------------------
Lucianne

Verse 1:
Lucianne, I’m down on the floor and I’m not asking for much more than your hand
Lucianne, I’m running out of steam, and it’s starting to seem like I’m your man

Chorus
Lucianne, won’t you come back to me?
Won’t you come home?
Lucianne, don’t you think we could live in the last hour of Sunday morn?

Verse 2:
Lucianne, you’re friends kind of suck and I don’t give a fuck what they say
Lucianne, let’s go for a walk. You know they’re gonna talk anyway

Cement and Sunshine

Verse 1:
I was in a room surrounded on all sides
Every wall was one year high and twelve months wide

I can see the sun, I can see the skies
Everywhere to run, nowhere to hide

All the walls had windows I could see outside
Through the summer haze I saw cement and sunshine

Limitless skies stretch before my eyes
It’s not the same, without window panes, it’s not the same

Chorus:
Cement and sunshine, and ten-cent clementines
Cement and sunshine, fireworks and wine
I could stay right here, I could stay right here, I could stay right here I, could stay right

Verse 2:
If we come together it will be alright
If we come together it will be alright
Do you remember when we had to count to ten?
Now the numbers just go on and on, they never end

Choruses out

Introducing the Morningsiders: a NYC-based alt-folk group. Their debut project, "unfocus," weaves an impressionistic sound derived from their influences in folk, jazz, americana, and alternative rock. Their songs pay homage to the aching entrance into adulthood and draw in listeners with their subtle vocal work, lyrical hooks, acoustic instrumentation, and pulsating percussion. ... more
