this one is for all the little love triangles all across the land.


I am a Red Balloon
Floating in your happy sky
and you won't even spare a dime

So I'll fly away and see if you care,
See if i am worth your time

I am an apple tree, blowing gently in the breeze
and you won't even hold my hand

So i'll dry up, and when the night falls
maybe I'll spare you a dance

And the hardest thing you do
is holding onto your lies
pretending they're the truth

And the hardest thing she does
is holding onto your lies
pretending they're enough

I am long gone from here
Maybe next week, or maybe next year
If my branches do pull us apart
Find someone new to inflate my heart

I am a lollipop swirly, twirly, in your mouth
and I'm just dying for a lick
In our candy shop, you will make the music
and I'll swirl and twirl to the beat


released November 29, 2012
session with mr. christian de looper!
