Dance Me Home Written by Brian Spekis she prefers jams from way up north watching her bangs swing back and forth i feel like i swallowed butterflies a few more drinks and the timidness dies come on, babe and dance me home into the dark of night unknown by the grace of arthur conley go i stumble my way up and down her hall piles of clothes, i trip and fall she painted a canvas of butterflies inspired by warhol’s in ‘55
I Got A DUI, Babe Written by Brian Spekis stepped out of the bar got into my car i got a d.u.i., babe can’t drive you around today spent the night downtown next day they let me out i got a d.u.i., babe can’t drive you around today can’t get you mocha latte anything i ever said about love was just the whiskey talkin’ my head’s got a secret back door and the devil he’ll come a-knockin’ ain’t ever had a sleepless night without that bottle by my side i can’t say the same about you
Turn Me Around Written by Brian Spekis it ain’t easy to say i’d like to be thirty someday all the shots i’ve had are gone who’s buying the next round? i always wanted you back i got the proof on my 4-track what we once had has been lost and i’m not turning around what time are you coming over tonight? two lonely hearts in the dark of night collide i don’t want to be alone for the rest of my life i always yawn when you yawn the circumference turns me on all the thoughts i’ve had on us are starting to turn me around
Cemetery Secretary Written by Brian Spekis it’s been a while she said with a smile since we walked where dead lay watch as her eyes go from name to name follow the path, babe secretary in a cemetery laughing mess in a shirtdress turns on the radio and waits for her song an apple is peeled, two kisses i steal a cypress tree waves to me a lack to perceive the respect to grieve there’s underground wrath, babe secretary in a cemetery laughing mess in a shirtdress turns up the radio and dances to her favorite song
Run For Cover Written by Brian Spekis oh, you’re gonna run for cover for the rest of your life regretting all over over and over again yeah, you got my number call and let me know you’re alive i’ve seen too many summers go by in the blink of an eye a heart is only as strong as the person it drives oh, you learn a few things when you’re on your own for a while regretting all over over and over again you’re burned in the back of my mind in the dark i can still see your eyes regretting all over over and over again
Apparitions (Sweet!!!) Written by Brian Spekis there’s a fire somewhere out there tonight vampires took me to a great height on the hill above town, we saw… disappear whenever back is turned never fear for life will be adjourned on the hill above town, we saw apparitions open the gates to the end of the world SWEET!!! can you fly, vampire?
Interesting, Yes You Are Written by Brian Spekis there ain’t no need for traveling with all the photos i’ve been collecting confusion from on high embodied gal, it ain’t no lie two nights staggering toward a bloody nose the twilight ain’t kind to the pigeon-toed interesting, yes you are another night, another bar yesterday is tomorrow’s way out interesting to say the least swig the wine and curse the priest laughing in the shadow of a doubt the bedsheets think i need a vacation four wall isolation four years and a degree later just another bitter curator
No, We Are Not Naming Our Kids After Ikea Products Written by Brian Spekis must be a dream sent from her last scream sent across moonbeam fleeting at the break of dawn parlez-vous francais? oh, babe took care of her feet a shoe for each retreat drank her scotch neat living every day to swan
Running Red Lights Written by Brian Spekis turn the headlights on high shaky shine in my eyes i go running red lights ease my mind through the night ain’t got no rearview some friends knocked it off roll me down a window listen to the road talk let the air rollercoaster through your hair get me there destination anywhere hooray turn the headlights off i dare myself sometimes on those back-of-my-hand roads i go running red lights
