“In Bruce Springsteen songs, you can either stay and rot, or you can escape and burn. That’s OK; he’s a songwriter, after all, and he needs simple choices like that in his songs. But nobody ever writes about how it is possible to escape and rot - how escapes can go off at half-cock, how you can leave the suburbs for the city but end up living a limp suburban life anyway. That’s what happened to me; thats what happens to most people.”—Rob Gordon - High Fidelity
Just a quick update if there are a few out there that care. We have written the music for four songs. In the coming week we will be writing vocals then demoing out all the tracks before we hit the studio with Sam Pura mid Jan. Expect an ep by the end of January.
The Dangerous Summer - “Where I Want To Be” (Studio Acoustic)
An even better acoustic version of an already awesome song.
And there is something in your face that pulls me far enough away. I guess that I always knew that I’d find you when I thought I reached my point, I let them down. I slept in the worst part of this town. You are my song and you are where I wanna be.
Faintest snow keep falling. Hands around your waist. Nameless, standing cold. Take in restraint like a breath. My lungs are so numb from holding back. Walk close to the fence. Feel it hit your clothes. Turn and smile nice. Smile say goodnight. Say goodnight in a breath. Simple discourse breaks you clean in half. Regret. Do try it once and then you know. Your move. Settle for nothing less again.
new jams are sooo good. if you haven’t heard of them get your shit in order.
"Melrose Diner" -
I hate your bad tattoos and your second-hand stories; those anecdotes that grew old last month. I hate the way you move when you’re drunk and try dancing. It’s not sexy. It’s just keeping us up and I’m just not fond of anyone, but that’s got everything to do with us. I hate the way I get when I can’t handle bad news. It feels like I’ve been an asshole for months. All I’ve got left are these handfuls of fuck you and man, that’s never enough. I guess I’m just down. I guess I’ll be honest. I could use you around. I can’t stand the dork that you’re hanging with now. I guess I’ll be honest. I could use you around. I hate the way that you can’t keep your hair straight. I hate the way that you’re leaning on me. I hate the way that you point out when girls are staring because you know that I won’t do a thing. I hate the context clues you leave out of your writing because I can’t find myself here at all. You know that I hate when you call me wasted. I expect it whenever you call. My friends all say he’s just a b-rate version of me; he’s stuck on video games and weed. They’re just trying to help me get to sleep. My friends all say you’re sitting way too close to me, that I should just get up and leave. It’s like I’m weighed down to the seat. My friends all say he’s just the broke-dick version of me. They’re just trying to help me get some sleep. I know he’s what you need.
