Seedling

by The Folded Faces

/
  • Streaming + Download

    Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

    Seedling is so called because of how accurately it describes this EP. There’s been a movement in the last ten years towards technical and digital precision, leaving little to no space in music for the expression of the vulnerability and imprecision that defines our humanity. The Folded Faces aren’t the only ones trying now to rectify that absence, but they might be the Seedling with the most promise.

Track Name: Waiting For Your Call
I’m sitting here waiting for your call
Wondering if it’ll come at all
You and I, babe, could light up the night sky
You and I have something that will not be denied
If only you call

You and I, babe, could blind them to it all
We could make this shrunken world stand tall
I’ve got your touch on my mind
I want to make your body all mine
If only you call

Oh, what we could be together

I see you at the same time everyday
And I can’t help but look you’re way
I think about you when you’re not around
I could be your king, you’d be my crown

Oh, what we could be together
I want to share my song with you
I play so loud hoping you might hear
I know what a single song can do

Oh, what we could be together
I want to share my song with you
I play so loud hoping you might hear me
I know what a single song can do
Track Name: Now I Know
Mama, where you going to?
Are you running away?
Or are you just trying something new?

Papa, what you gonna do?
She’s taken the red light,
Leaving you only the blue

Now I know
Yes, I know
She was hot, she was cool, she was mine
Now I’m a good man on hard times

Mama, there was nothing you could do
It’s coming to us all someday
Maybe someday soon

Now I know
Yes, I know
She was hot, she was cool, she was mine
Now I’m just a good man on hard, hard times

Now I know
Yes, I know
She was hot, she was cool, she was mine
Now I’m just a good man on hard, hard times
Track Name: A Little Bit Into You
Sometimes you’re so hard to read
You go from high to low so quickly
I can’t tell just how you feel
About me

I wish I knew just what to say
Those magic words that would make
You laugh and smile the way
You do

You should know(repeat)
You should be told(repeat)

I’m a little bit into you

I want to hold your hand
Pull you close and show you what I can
Do with everything
I am

You should know
You should be told

I’m a little bit into you

I’ve running out of time
I’m have to make you mine

So you should know
You should be told

I’m a little bit into you
Maybe more than I’d like to admit to
Track Name: 2am
It’s 2 am in New York City
The sidewalks still seem to narrow
To hold the lumbering body
They say never sleeps

It’s 2:05 in New York City
Superman walks anonymously
You’ve a better luck with the evening lottery
Than with holding someone’s eye

It’s 2am, and I can’t sleep
This city reeks of rotten dreams
And they’re seeping into me

It’s 2am, is it me?
Was I just not made
To play this game?

They say it’s five o’clock somewhere
The perfect time for this
I’ll splash some ice cold alcohol
On the system in my head

It’s 2am, and I can’t sleep
This city reeks of rotten dreams
And they’re seeping into me

It’s 2am, is it me?
Was I just not made
To play this game?

I want to set fire to the rain
Knocking on my window
I want to dance among the flames
And let my world go

I want to dance, among the flames
I want to dance, my world away

It’s 2am, and I can’t sleep
This city reeks of rotten dreams
And they’re seeping into me

It’s 2am, is it me?
Was I just not made
To play this game?
Track Name: If I Wanted (Feat. Mary Liz Donohoe)
If I wanted someone to clean me up
I would get a maid
If I wanted someone to spend my money
I wouldn’t bother to get paid

If I wanted someone to understand, I’d have more to say
I keep you around babe, just to get me through the day

I want you to want this,
Like I do
I’m not trying to take those things you think belong to you
I’m trying to take you

I want to understand you, that much is true
But I stick around you babe, because you’re lonely too

Touch me, touch me won’t you
So I know that you’re real
Hold me, hold me won’t you
Ill try to show you how I feel

If I wanted someone to run my life I’d drop to my knees and pray
You don’t send me away because you want me to stay

Touch me, touch me won’t you
So I know that you’re real
I’ll hold you, hold you darling
Together now, this loneliness will heal
