about

"Cuernavaca" is the first single off of our brand new EP Under the Brilliant Lights which will be out on January 28, 2014

lyrics

She slipped through my fingers
With the sway of a tango dancer
Under the brilliant lights of the bay

And it left me in such a state
To watch all those ships depart
While we both put our swords away

I lowered this city into its grave
So that heaven could see me now

I kicked my legs just off the docks
Whistling through the fuzzy haze
On that blackened Chicago day

With my lungs long past spent
I would challenge even the fiercest wind
Like a thief on his knees praying for a getaway

I lowered this city into its grave
So that heaven could see me now

Now everybody knows that I've been growing old
Say bon voyage with a wave
