lyrics

She’ll be fine.
She’s never caught around the building with her murals on the side
of the girl she left behind.
They’re supposed to be the girl she left behind.
They shared a futon, it’s fine, she didn’t really need space
alone the hard nights.
After everything, how could she say “no” this time?

It was the wrong time.
It could have really been sweet.
Not under these sheets.
She could have stayed.
She’s always there to lift her up the next day,
but in the wrong way.

When he left he left his sense and said he’d never look down,
he left a legend, yeah he thought he’d left it all over town.
But I can tell he’s going down.
If she’d believed in all the vows they’d made of peace of mind
then she deserved to hit the highway, deaf rapport on her side.
I hear they made her leave her wardrobe behind.

I guess she’s naked at heart.
I guess she made it to the coast, unwelcome on a stranger’s couch,
she’s welcome under the stars.
I guess she’s hollow inside,
I guess I lost her, guess I followed her for nothing,
and I’m stuck where she abandoned her car.
I guess she’s naked at heart.

It was the wrong time.
It could have really been sweet.
Not under these sheets.
She could have stayed.
She’s always there to lift her up the next day,
but in the wrong way.

I guess she’s naked at heart.
I guess she made it to the coast, unwelcome on a stranger’s couch,
she’s welcome under the stars.
I guess she’s hollow inside,
I guess I lost her, guess I followed her for nothing,
and I’m stuck where she abandoned her car.
I guess she’s naked at heart.

Kick Ptarmigan Parry Sound

Kick Ptarmigan, having recently devoured local greats the Spins, are set to record their third album this year. They play a unique hybrid of hair metal and doo-wop that sounds suspiciously like indie folk/rock.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
