Tim King Lynsey Moon deftly dips her toes in a few different genres on this outing and the results are one fine album. She's a little bit country, and a whole lotta pop and roll!

The songwriting is first rate, but the spotlight is alway Moon's tender and at times, 'come-hither' - captivating voice.

Little surprises are waiting for you around every corner.

You're gonna love it so buy it already! Favorite track: One Of My Lovers.

Pretend 03:49
Please forgive me if I tell this story thirty times I forgot where we left off The last time we talked Please forgive me if my words come out all wrong I've forgotten how to use them And I've been away too long But I know you'll say "Don't worry, it's okay" But I can't escape the voices in my head And it makes no sense For me to feel this way You're just beautiful And sometimes I forget Any time I'm getting better i'm afraid because i don't want to see another part of me any time i can't remember who i am i can start again from zero i can formulate a plan And I know you'll say It's better if I stay But I can't escape the voices in my head And it makes no sense For me to feel this way You're just beautiful And sometimes I forget (Chor.) Please forgive me but I've been here more than thirty times And I know how it ends But we can play pretend Please just tell me that it's worth it not to know And everything is fine I'm running out of time

Change 03:14
No one knows for certain if we're going to be ok And no one has an answer if the devil's here to stay We can fight and we can rage but still one thing remains The more things change, the more they stay the same Life is long, we sing our songs, and summer turns to fall Winter lasts so long that we think spring won't come at all Time is an illusion, but there's one thing that remains The more things change, the more they stay the same I can't find the answers or the things you want to hear But it's a kind of madness that makes it all so clear How long will it take us before we can see the light How many more attempts before we finally get it right All those moments lost in time, like tears in the rain The more things change, the more they stay the same

You were reading a book while you steeped your tea I prayed to god you wouldn't look at me When I saw you turn, I looked away And hoped that we would meet another day What could I do? I just couldn't risk Losing a love that would ever exist Missed connection, opportunity lost What would've happened if our paths actually crossed? Maybe we could meet for coffee but I'd probably make it weird Wherever you are, I'll be here You came to paint my bedroom I was in the den I knew you were working, but I tried to pretend That we were long lost lovers, and you'd come home to stay But I knew that when you finished, you'd be on your way (Chor.) Maybe it's too much, they'll never see it I'll keep it with me silently, where I can believe it These empty feelings stay behind, I just don't understand I guess it's more than I had planned You were walking your dog in the park last May I ransacked my brain for something to say All I got out was "hello", but you missed it A one-word performance, I just couldn't resist it Now all I can do is sit and wait For a response to a letter that was sent too late (Chor.)

Another Day 02:20
Sunny smile Stay a while You know I Would love to try To make you stay For just another day Running through The living room You can't say it But I love you So won't you stay For just another day Here with me you're not alone But I know someone else Can love you and give you a home Little heart Work of art I could tell Right from the start That you would stay For just another day Even when you have to go I will remember you Forever, just so you know You were mine For a time Then you flew To somewhere new But you were here For just another day

I always thought that it had to be Two of a kind, there could never be three I always wondered but I couldn't be sure If you can love one, then why can't you love more We're all just spinning through the universe To limit yourself only makes it feel worse I think i like you and that you like me too So I've got a simple question for you Would you like to be One of my lovers Yes there are others, I won't hide them from you Would you like to be One of my lovers Don't mind the others, and be my lover too It might sound crazy or a little intense But I know where I am and it's not on the fence If you have yourself a little time Come over and see me, everything will be fine I guess I'm lucky, that's what some people say It's not a secret, and I like it that way It's not a question that I try to avoid So if you'll let me I'll get right to the point (Chor.) We're all just trying to find some peace of mind And I can tell that you're one of a kind We don't have to keep it quiet no more After all, what else are lovers for (Chor.)

All day long I sing her love songs While she stares up at the sky She don't do a thing when I give her a ring 'Cause she isn't able to try She's cold and she's blue and she looks just like you But she doesn't move anymore She doesn't do much except look very pretty And lie very still on the floor, oh She's the best girl that I've ever had But people just don't understand I may not be able to take her out dancing But I can still hold her hand She's not very chatty but she's a good listener And I talk to her every day And I will grow older, and she will grow colder But I know that she's gonna stay She doesn't drink, and she doesn't think That I'm ugly or boring or fat She don't get irate when I come home late 'Cause I always know where she's at My friends and my family have not come to visit Since the day i made her my bride It's so controversial but I'll be with her 'Til I join her on the other side, oh She's the best girl that I've ever had But people just don't understand She may not be able to come meet my parents But I can still hold her hand She's not very chatty but she's a good listener And I talk to her every day And I will grow older, and she will grow colder But I know that she's gonna stay (Chor.) Yes there's no one above us, so feel free to judge us 'Cause I know that she's gonna stay

I don't mind If you take your time While I'm building bridges and making rhymes and I Couldn't care If you take your share 'cause there's Something different moving in the air and As I go, I can still see below, now I know A house on fire can feel so cold Just the thing You need to hear When you're having trouble and you can't see clearly and you Can't decide Who should be your guide So you try to find a little peace of mind But your story was written, so you burned it away Just to say A house on fire can feel so cold Sometimes it's all you can do to keep from crying When you feel like dying Help me, I'm lying Burn it all down Why don't you burn it all down

Take It Slow 03:53
When it's all said and done You did it and you don't even know You never were much fun anyway Take it slow Do you want to have some fun or don't you? I'm not here to help you to feel safe What do you feel? Stop thinking so much What do you feel? Right here? Right now? When it's all said and done You did it and you don't even know You never were much fun anyway You had better not be sussing out some problem now, when everything's alright Baby I've got needs and your bullshit, it sure does keep the lights on But let's cut it out tonight Tell me what do you feel? What do you feel? Take it slow Why do you take it slow? When it's all said and done You did it and you don't even know You never were much fun anyway

Home 08:31
It's so easy when you're going down Never knowing when you'll hit the ground Time will tell you everything But will it ever let you sing All I've known before was gravity Never let it get the best of me When you're running free You can't remember how it used to be It's like a dream I can't wake up Stop you're crying, dry your eyes We're gonna make it home tonight Turn around and face the sun And tomorrow we'll be gone Another day, another chance to fly Living's easy when you close your eyes And I can't complain I feel you swimming in my veins When it goes away Where does it go I'm so distracted Can't get my head right I need direction to be free I've lost track of all the good times Can you bring them back to me I'm too young for all this grieving But I'm too old now to go back Stop you're crying, dry your eyes We're gonna make it home tonight Turn around and face the sun And tomorrow we'll be gone All along, all along Every gain, every loss We were singing, we were singing

Tethers 04:42
They can see you comin’ miles away With a stone on your back It’s not easy maintaining a wall But that habit is murder to break You tried it once and it was a mistake To let down your guard You don’t have the wherewithal You got burned It was bad And what confidence you had Was wrecked Left you feeling timid and small Is it too much to ask for Even one or two people you can trust In bleak or fair weather And when you fall it’s not so far ‘Cause you’re in it together Just a friend who won’t leave you in the dust If you let me I’ll come through And be this someone that you need To walk alongside not all over you It might make sense to hesitate but not for your whole life long Those who would hurt you aren’t worth your tears Reaching out now with no ill intent Any malicious subtext you’d invent Is just a fiction Anxiety lies, but I’m right here Merely wounded Not destroyed Love’s not something To avoid This time Let me help you lessen that fear It’s not too much to ask for Someone who’ll stick around when things go bust Who can act as a tether So if you fall it’s not so far ‘Cause you’re in it together Just a friend who won’t leave you in the dust If you let me I’ll come through And be this someone that you need To walk alongside not all over You have no reason to put faith in me And I understand that your thick skin Is reaction to, the times that you Believed in someone then got screwed I’m going to make some mistakes sometimes ‘Cause there’s no such thing as perfection Wanna grow with you, ‘cause I need someone too, help me, ooh To see this solitary world anew A little team of two people who can trust In bleak or fair weather That if we fall it’s not so far When we’re in it together I need a friend who won’t leave me in the dust So please let me, I’ll come through To be this someone that you need to walk alongside not all over you

Ripcord 03:26
What were you going to say Can I convince you to stay I'm unprepared and I'm scared I might just float away It's just a bit sad and strange Everything feels out of range Give me your word, cut the cord Think I'll just float away Maybe once in another time You were here in the back of my mind You can't tie me down I'm too far up off the ground And it all looks so much smaller You won't believe how much better it feels And you can't tell when you're falling Uou only know what you believe to be real And it goes So it goes See how it goes See how it's falling away, can you make your escape Find out how long it will take Right to the brink til you think You can just float away

Now I'm Gone 02:53
Out again It's so peculiar To feel so familiar and yet so unknown It begins Ask all your questions Just keep me guessing 'til it's time to go Now I'm gone Tell me how Each time it happens I'm on the outside and I'm looking in Even now It's hard to describe it I can survive it if I let it win Now I'm gone Even when I'm feeling small You'll find that I'm not there at all Still everything keeps moving on its own Even still I'm keeping track Of every time that i come back I wonder if I'm better off alone Breathe it out Lean into feeling You don't have to go home but you can't stay here I am here Just for a moment Just til you know me, then I'm off again Now I'm gone
13.
Dust on this tired old street Mark corners where we used to play Dust trace our tired old feet In circles as we pace our time away I just wanna die anywhere else If only I could die anywhere else So come with me let's die anywhere else Anywhere, just not here Stuck on this dead end street Where all the new kids come to play Stuck where the past and future meet Watching all our autumns drift away I just wanna die anywhere else If only I could die anywhere else So come with me let's die anywhere else Anywhere, just not here And if they ever hear my name, will they know I walk alone? Around these dusty streets, my tired old home And will they ever stop to think what was here before? No, they won't remember that I'm gone I just wanna die anywhere else If only I could die anywhere else So come with me let's die anywhere else Anywhere, just not here Oh no

about

This album was created through the collaborative efforts of nearly 40 people, and funded by almost 70. Within these tracks, you will find an abundance of individual styles, and a variety of musical genres and influences. Each person added something different, and I could not be happier with the end result. I hope you love it as much as I do.
