about

I know it’s easy enough to get music for free on the internet today, but music is worth paying for. Think about it. $5 is about about what you might pay for a burrito. When you buy a record from an artist on bandcamp you’re essentially telling the artist “Hey, good job, I support what you do, here’s a burrito.” If you enjoy our music that much, and I hope you do, please buy a record.

Track Name: My Onetime Friend
(in this recording I tuned my guitar down one step from EADGBE to DGCFAD. Below I'm noting how I actually played the chords, though they'll sound a step lower on the recording. It sounds to me like I'm playing two note "power chords" through most of it.)

Verse:
[E] You might come with me
[F#] I'm never far
[A] Or we might never speak again

[E] But either way
[F#] I'm happy you are
[A] My onetime friend [B]

Chorus:
[A] But let's just that to me [E] it felt right [B]
[A] When we both rode the sky [E] train that night [B]
[A] And found the fine line between [E] love and like [B]
oh oh [C#m] oh
My [A] onetime friend [E]
My [A] sometimes friend [E]
My [A] onetime friend [E]
My [A] sometimes friend [E]

Verse:
[E] When you speak to me
[F#] You chill my bones
[A] And I can barely move

[E] But if you want
[F#] I'll leave you alone
[A] I've got other stuff to do

Chorus:
A] But let's just that to me [E] it felt right [B]
[A] When we both rode the sky [E] train that night [B]
[A] And found the fine line between [E] love and like [B]
oh oh [C#m] oh
My [A] onetime friend [E]
My [A] sometimes friend [E]
My [A] onetime friend [E]
My [A] sometimes friend [E]

Instrumental:
[E]
[A]
[...the next chord isn't really a chord, just a tri-tone. A# and D. fretted like this... 67xxxx ... i suppose its implying some kind of diminished chord... it's pretty dissonant, but only for a moment, then were back to the A major.]
[A]

Chorus:
[A] But let's just that to me [E] it felt right [B]
[A] When we both rode the sky [E] train that night [B]
[A] And found the fine line between [E] love and like [B]
oh oh [C#m] oh
My [A] onetime friend [E]
My [A] sometimes friend [E]
My [A] onetime friend [E]
My [A] sometimes friend [E]
Track Name: Belated Birthday Wishes from Peter to Emily on December 26th
There's nothing for ya In California That you'll never find again
Go see the ocean meet the left coast then return to me my friend

And You'll learn the tambourine I'll learn accordion
Go see the ocean meet the left coast then return to me my friend

We'll celebrate a belated birthday this december 26th
and save our money for something lovely so a song will be my gift

and you'll learn the tambourine I'll learn accordion
We'll celebrate a belated birthday emily my friend
Track Name: Root For The Man You Love
When my father told me about the birds and the bees
I never imagined I'd get a bike tune up for my anniversary
An esoteric board game, MacGruber DVDs and if he had told me, I wouldn't have believed

Oh won't you please say something stupid, so I can kiss you just to shut you up.
I can't help rooting for, I can't help rooting for the man I love.

When my mother told me how to love and please a man
She didn't inform me about the daftness that they have
And that I'd have to innuendo, I'd have to wink and drop a hint, and if she did tell me, well I forget

Oh won't you please say something stupid, so I can kiss you just to shut you up.
I can't help rooting for, I can't help rooting for the man I love.

And you could bake me a cup cake, you could take me for a walk, you could make a piece of art with me or we could just sit down and talk

And if you do say something stupid, I'm going to kiss you so pucker up. I can't help rooting for, I can't help rooting for the man I love.

I wrote and recorded the song on February 12, 2011.
Track Name: Puppy Love
it's puppy love chopper dear, each time you wag your tail each time you scratch your ear
it's puppy love my Labrador, i adore you i'm so grateful you are here
13 years you've grown a little older, but i'm still only thinking of
your golden scruff, the way you ruff, thank you for telling me i'm always good enough
for your puppy love
Track Name: Bunches Of Bananas
I love you whole bunches of bananas
the above remains true when we're grandpa and grandma
oh love of my life
won't you please come step with me inside of this photobooth

because i love you whole boxes of puzzles
when you state the opposing view just to make me befuddled
but then you keep me calm when everything is going wrong
i confide in you

1999 we met through a play
we were just 15
but it was the wait

because i love you whole bunches of bananas
the above remains true when we're grandpa and grandma
oh love of my life
i have never been the silent type
...
but i'm comfortable with you
i'm so comfortable with
we're like a lump of yellow fruits
Track Name: Love In Philadelphia
I found love in philadelphia
Just south of where the market-frankfurt runs
and we moved west of where the schuylkill flows
where the trees they sway on baltimore
and their leaves they shade the 34
under feet the dead they play all day
i found love, i found love

so we haunt the porches near clark park
and we sing but only after dark
i dreamed one day we'd own a plot of land where we can play all day
i found love, i found love in philadelphia
i found love, i found love
Track Name: He Does The Trick
My sweetheart my sweetheart doesn't need to write a poem
Because the way he treats me lets me know he loves me so
he's a perfect gentleman, I'm a hopeless romantic
when he opens up the door for me, for me that does the trick

my sweetheart is goofy and he makes me laugh out-loud
and when we're newly married we are moving to a house
and when we're old, he'll take my coat, and then we'll both sit
on the same side of the booth to eat and for me that does the trick

for me he does the trick
he's a perfect gentleman and i'm a hopeless romantic
for me he does the trick
if you ask me "what is love?", i simply answer this
for me he does the trick
he's a perfect gentleman and i'm a hopeless romantic
Track Name: Grace, You Amaze Me
grace, you amaze me
oh your biscuits always taste the best
grace, you amaze me
your everything your name should express
and when i need your strength i remember what it takes
you taught me and i won't forget
grace you amaze me
and so i will arise and call you blessed

grace you amaze me
hold me close you always smell like love
grace you amaze me
you're the gravity that holds the heavens up
and when i need your strength i remember what it takes
you taught me and i won't forget
grace you amaze me
and so i will arise and call you blessed

grace, you amaze me
you live within me here inside my heart
grace, you amaze me
and part it will be the hardest part
and when i need your strength i remember what it takes
you taught me and i won't forget
grace you amaze me
and so i will arise and call you blessed
