Each Night 03:57
"I can’t sleep right when you haunt me each night Though I fight it I can’t shake the sight Other thoughts should be in my head But I just think of you instead I try to wrestle my mind off you But you find a way back inside, don’t you? Don’t dissect my pride Don’t you scrutinize me I have set my sights on you only I see your face all through the day There’s no escaping the trance you have placed on me Got a heart that should be on the mend But it just breaks for you instead I try to wrestle my mind off you But you find a way back inside, don’t you? I strive to show you that I want you But you deny me every time I do Don’t dissect my pride Don’t you scrutinize me I have set my sights on you only I’m slightly terrified Don’t upset my psyche I could win the prize if I’m lucky I got you right where I want you tonight What if I win you over this time? You’ll be mine I try to wrestle my mind off you But you find a way back inside, don’t you?"

Runaround 03:24
"Why do I bother trying? Your head is in the clouds Despite the truth I am shouting You’re never coming down We all see right through him I don’t know why, I don’t know why you don’t Keep giving me the runaround Keep me at bay by never slowing down You’re burying my words six feet underground By the time they reach your ears they don’t make a sound Happily ever after was always on your mind A husband, kids, all that mattered But this won’t heal with time You pushed everyone else around you Pushed us away for someone who shouldn’t stay Keep giving me the runaround Keep me at bay by never slowing down You’re burying my words six feet underground By the time they reach your ears they don’t make a sound You’re living in a wonderland Where everything goes as planned I wish I could pretend Our story has a happy end Keep giving me the runaround Keep me at bay by never slowing down You’re burying my words six feet underground By the time they reach your ears they don’t make a sound"

"You would never tell me what you’re really thinking You would always play it off as nothing I could tell it from the way that you were breathing You were trying to cover up something I just want to lend a hand You don’t have to live the same story The truth should be said I was hoping you could do that for me Didn’t take very long to realize you’re way better off if you don’t lie If you don’t lie baby, if you don’t lie, so don’t lie Knew that something was wrong on the inside, you’re way better off if you don’t lie If you don’t lie baby, if you don’t lie, so don’t lie I could see it in your eyes, you were sinking Hiding somewhere that I can’t follow It would hit you in the middle of the weekend And leave you feeling so hollow If you’d only let me in I could take some of the weight off you You know I can, you just got to tell me the truth Didn’t take very long to realize you’re way better off if you don’t lie If you don’t lie baby, if you don’t lie, so don’t lie Knew that something was wrong on the inside, you’re way better off if you don’t lie If you don’t lie baby, if you don’t lie, so don’t lie If you don’t lie baby, if you don’t lie, so don’t lie If you don’t lie baby, if you don’t lie, so don’t lie Tell me what you’re actually thinking Don’t play it off as nothing if it’s something Didn’t take very long to realize you’re way better off if you don’t lie, so don’t lie"

"All my memories are packed away into a box That I never open, never give it any thought Makes me sick, all the shit I wish I never did Oh just because it's buried deep don't mean it's dead It's just asleep in my head All those quiet moments, could've said so much My mouth wouldn't open, oh my lips were sealed shut To this day I can't say what I want to say Oh just because I won't let it breathe I can't neglect The gravity of words unsaid Young at heart but dumb as hell I bid my old self farewell She won't come around here no more She won't come around here no more Oh just because I won't let it breathe I can't neglect The gravity of words unsaid Oh just because it's buried deep don't mean it's dead It's just asleep in my head"

about

Deer Fellow Austin, Texas

Deer Fellow is an indie folk-pop duo with a “keen sense of song craft.” Based out of Austin, bandmates Matt Salois (guitar, vocals) and Alyssa Kelly (violin, vocals, piano) met at an open mic and were quick to collaborate. Fast forward to present day and coupledom, the two have built a cross-genre sound that “pulls you in right away, stirring romance and broken hearts.” ... more
