about

Alternative pop with electronics, drums, textures, found sounds and voices to take to your bed with you.
The download only version of this, our first EP is available for whatever you choose to pay for it, whatever you feel it’s worth. We want you to enjoy the music and aren't asking for your email in exchange.
While you’re having a ponder about that, please bear in mind a pretty simple equation: whatever you can afford, your money helps us make this music.
Thanks very much.
Tim, Meme and the Ghosts collective.

Track Name: Paper Heart
Folding paper hearts inside your grip/ Scoring lines you know will last
Holding down the things you know of love/ Tearing hearts/ That once were good

You're so cold/ But I/ Can see your thoughts unfold
You've been told/ So many things that haunt your soul.

If I knew that the pain could endanger all of me
and consume all the clarity I crave
Could I throw all I know to the flames of the fallen ones
Would a life in the cold/ preserve heart/preserve soul
Well you know/ and you chose/ to stay closed
And I know/ I could run/ but I froze
I am with you and alone.

Calculating laughter you predict/ distance doesn't suit us well
Greeting doubt, inviting fear and hate/ Gripping paper hearts/ You made to break

You're so cold/ But I/ Can see your thoughts unfold
You've been told/ So many things that haunt your soul.

If I knew that the pain could endanger all of me
and consume all the clarity I crave
Could I throw all I know to the flames of the fallen ones
Would a life in the cold/ preserve heart/preserve soul
Well you know/ and you chose/ to stay closed
And I know/ I could run/ but I froze
I am with you and alone.

Track Name: Capable Of Love
Did you ever get taught to stick em up?
To stand by the ones you love so much
Or were you taught to think of number one?
Cos no one else ever would

You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got it all wrong wrong wrong wrong
Cos I know what you are capable of
You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got all wrong wrong wrong wrong
Cos I know that you are capable of love

All those lessons in life / Did they tell you to fight ?
Or did they tell you to run and hide, run and hide
You didn’t think that anyone could / you didn’t think that anyone should
Love you like I do / and that I’d need love from you too

You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got it all wrong wrong wrong wrong
Cos I know what you are capable of
You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got all wrong wrong wrong wrong
Cos I know that you are capable of love

Oh and oh they never told you / you thought (you thought) it was something to be won
And oh they never showed you / how it (how it) how it should be done

You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got it all wrong wrong wrong wrong
Cos I know what you are capable of
You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got all wrong wrong wrong wrong
Cos I know that you are capable of love

Track Name: Goodbye
Those days / we managed to waste them away / and then / it got a little bit better day by day

Ooh yeah / I’ve been waiting for the right time / it’s been so long it’s been so long feel I’ve been waiting all my life
Ooh yeah / so I’m gonna pick a right time when we’re staring each other right in the face in the face

So I get a little closer to you / I can see in your eyes
You are happy ever after / and so / its safe to say goodbye

Oh and / you thought I had a big imagination / you never could see you were above your station baby

Ooh yeah / so I’m gonna pick a right time when we’re staring each other right in the face in the face

So I get a little closer to you / I can see in your eyes
You are happy ever after / and so / its safe to say goodbye

And even though it hurt / I know I am better
Even though you hurt / me / I know this is better
