about

"Lovely" is the story of Alex and Andrea (The Zoo Incident). The album starts in February of 09 while we were in high school and starting to become friends. We took a trip to Southern California during Spring Break and in that week realized how perfect we were for each other. Our relationship began to intensify just in time for Andrea to graduate from our little high school and move to Albuquerque before the last days of class, leaving me to finish another year of high school. This album is our story together, of those good times, and those internal struggles. A love story lived together and written into music together.

Track Name: February
Somehow I think that we would get one another
You look so foreign to me but I know there's
more to you, more to you
I want to know, I wanna find out what else
is in your head.

I can't find words to say
I've just met you
I wanna run away
Just to talk
Just to talk to you.

Somehow I think that we would get one another
You look so foreign to me but I know there's
more to you, more to you
I want to know, I wanna find out what else
is in your head.

I can't find words to say
I've just met you
I wanna run away
Just to talk
Just to talk to you.

Come back to California
Come spend the springtime with me
Come back to California
Come spend the springtime with me
Track Name: March
We watch our world fly by us
Through the window and laugh
As we leave
Thank you for coming
On this adventure
Now we can talk, now we can talk
Tell me, why do I feel so drawn to you?

Now we don’t to wait
We’re sitting so close together (close together)
The more I talk to you,
The more you are a mystery, the more you are a mystery

You look at me and I can tell that you can feel it too
Can we stop pretending?
Can we stop?
Now we can talk, now we can talk
Tell me, why do I feel so drawn to you?

Now we don’t to wait
We’re sitting so close together (close together)
The more I talk to you,
The more you are a mystery, the more you are a mystery

You’re moving closer to me
And I feel so close to you (close to you)
When this bus ride’s over
Will I still feel so close to you? (close to you)

So close So-Cal

In the dark I feel that I’m safe to talk to you
But morning’s coming (but morning’s coming)
Let’s always talk, let’s always talk
Promise we’ll always talk

Now we don’t to wait
We’re sitting so close together (so close together)
The more I talk to you,
The more you seem to mean to me, the more you seem to mean to me
Track Name: Experiment
We are the experiment that didn’t fail,
As the scientists watched us from the stairs.
And we were the figments of a different era,
Under palm trees dancing in wind that wasn’t there.

Won’t you, Won’t you sit here for a little while?
Give me memories, realities, uh oh uh oh uh oh
Can’t you, can’t you feel my body is on fire?
Take my sanity, insanity, uh oh uh oh uh oh

And we changed our lives then.
Had we wasted all our life before?
Can’t bring myself to forget it all has to end.
But let’s not make it over before it begins.

Leaves turning purple fall on tinted grass.
Huxley’s words on stucco were so true
How’d we get so lucky to escape our past?
And in the future will I see more of you?

And we changed our lives then.
Had we wasted all our life before?
Can’t bring myself to forget it all has to end.
But let’s not make it over before it begins.

Morning I awoke and I was alone.
Had I let myself be fooled once again?
I turn, you were next to me all along.
It’s reality now we don’t need to pretend.
Track Name: The Shortest Three Months of Our Lives
It’s nice to lay on the floor,
Lay on the floor and dream,
With Coquelicot in the background singing,
And M350’s keep our heads fuzzy

Time goes so slow
Until we try to meet
Then time's so hard to keep
Slipping through our finger-
Tips in between.

For a little while life is so serene
For a little while we can be one thing
It'll end we'll wake up from this dream
It'll end we'll wake up from this dream

Time goes so slow
Until we try to meet
And now I have to leave
But I’ll come and visit
From Albuquerque
Track Name: Albuquerque
Somewhere inside me I always knew
There's nothing to live for so far from you
Somewhere inside me I always knew.

You'd say, you'd always say
”One day, think of one day”
You stayed so far away
You stayed, you stayed.

(I always knew)
Somewhere inside me I always knew
There's nothing to live for so far from you
Somewhere inside me I always knew.

You'd say, you'd always say
“One day, think of one day”
You stayed so far away
You stayed, you stayed.

I lay awake I lay awake
Listening
To blackened streets and the sirens
of Albuquerque
I lay awake, I lay awake…
Track Name: October
Still we know each other
Don't forget me now.
Speaking for the other
Who knows why or how?

It only took 6 hours
For me to see you. I
Couldn't love another and
Now our time will fly.
(Hello Hello Hello)
Couldn't love another and
Now our time will fly.

And it's nice to see you face to face
While I talk to you.
What I risked… To escape this place
Was worth the weekend to see you.
Track Name: Waking Without
Who made me choose
Between what I knew
And you, and you?
And you.

Leaving you again,
Leaving you again.

Who made me choose
Between what I knew
And you, and you?
And you.

I can’t bear to
Keep waking without you
Keep waking without you.
Track Name: November
I can't see you
Just to leave you
And I just hate
This middle place.

We fell away
But couldn't say.
We tried one way
Pretend, and play.

I'm tired
Aren't you?
We've become weights
Struggling to stay afloat
I need to
Hurt you
Cuz I can't face
Choosing this place.

We can't go on
Like this
We can't go on
Like this.

We can't go on
Like this
We can't go on
Forever.

I'm not brave enough
To say this
So I'll just take
The easy way.

I'm tired
Aren't you?
We've become weights
Struggling to stay (afloat)
I need to
Hurt you
Cuz I can't face
Choosing this place
