lyrics

I want my first time with somebody I don’t care about at all
my breath is coming quickly, my back against the wall
who said there’d be a difference as the summer turned to fall?
in the darkness as the cars passed, I didn’t see his face at all

you see, my legs are scraped up from the fences that I’ve climbed
I was chasing half the summer- if I’d caught him he’d be mine
he’s just my size and look, besides, he helped me with the car
if you’re strong from walking everywhere it don’t seem that far at all

dirty your face, cut back your hair
darken your eyes- I’ll still be here
how many thousand born in a year?
darken your eyes. I’ll still be here

well it was your house girl, I was looking for the place
with hot lines of tears and charcoal running down my cheeks
you weren’t much to hold on to, but there wasn’t much to say
the friendly pose abandoned, our clothes in disarray

dirty your face, cut back your hair
darken your eyes- I’ll still be here
how many thousand born in a year?
darken your eyes. I’ll still be here

about

Landlord's Daughter Seattle, Washington

"The violin and guitar work on the album are impeccable..."
"The Passengers isn't a rock musical, per se, but the album certainly strikes that chord. In the vein of the Decemberists' The Hazards Of Love (though a little less gruesome), Landlord's Daughter are melodious, theatrical storytellers."
