about

Hello Bandcamp! This album was done independently & everything you hear on it was created by myself and the wonderful Steven Palin. It was done in several long nights, in our houses, not a studio, and I am so glad to finally release these songs to the world. I encourage you to download this album for free by pressing "Buy Now" and entering 0. However, if you would like to donate, it will help ensure that I will be able to make more music in the future. Thanks for listening! - Darian

Track Name: It's Not Me (It's You)
[Verse 1]
It's a little too late for you to come around
I've been up waiting, now the sun is going down
On all my dreams and though it seems that you are nowhere to be found
Didn't anyone tell you that unless it's dark, the stars can't come out

I didn't know that you would mean everything
And I'm falling deep, you're falling asleep
I'm walking to the shoreline
Show me the skyline, I've learned to see

[Chorus]
It's not my fault if you're not looking at the same sky
It's not my fault if you are wondering why
It's just my heart you're breaking in two
It's not me….
It's not me, it's you

[Verse 2]
It's a little too late for you to apologize
It's a little too late for me to be crying
I should be over you, I should be bolder now
Moving on, don't try to tell me who, what, when or where
I know you're wrong

Now I'm learning to love again
I'm falling, you're walking away
I'm calling to the shoreline
Show me the skyline
I've learned to see

[Chorus x3]
It's not my fault if you're not looking at the same sky
It's not my fault if you are wondering why
It's just my heart you're breaking in two
It's not me….
It's not me, it's you
It's not me, it's you
Track Name: Darling
Darling, go back to bed
Let's say the words we haven't said
My mind's made up in my head
But I know you haven't slept
It's been a long day
It always seems that way
So why is there nothing left to say?
Talk gets in the way

[Chorus]
You say, "words are cheap"
But you can't even speak
I can't get to sleep if you're not listening
You say actions are loud
I could hear yours over a crowd
This defeaning silence rings out to me
Brings out the worst in me

Darling, come back around
I could forgive you now
Let's get in the same room and talk it out
Baby, you've built these walls
Conflicted feelings in your own halls
Your eyes betray love when
it's not, but it's always my fault

You say, "words are cheap"
But you can't even speak
I can't get to sleep if you're not listening
You say actions are loud
I could hear yours over a crowd
This defeaning silence rings out to me
Brings out the worst in me

Darling, go back to bed
Darling, go back to bed
I'll forget everything you said
It could be easy if you let it
Darling, go back to bed
Darling, go back to bed
I'll forget everything you said
If you would get out of my head

You say, "words are cheap"
But you can't even speak
I can't get to sleep if you're not listening
You say actions are loud
I could hear yours over a crowd
This defeaning silence rings out to me
Brings out the worst in me
Track Name: Hung Up
Hello, it seems that I can't come to the phone
but if you leave me a message I might return your call
Hello, how are you? I am doing fine
but I have things to do and you're tying up the line

Sorry, I promise I'm not trying to ignore you
but every time we talk, I'm reminded
The line was busy, "sorry you must have missed me,
you caught me at a bad time"
you caught me at a bad time

Hang up the phone, leave me alone
Unless you are going to come over and sweep me away in your arms
Oh, what do you know, no one is home
i should have figured the second I walked in you'd run
So if you're done talking I think I'd rather just hang up

They never told me you would always be busy
Lamenting all that you're feeling to a number that's not mine
Now I'm second guessing, never thought you'd be messing around
with another heart, around on the other line

Hang up the phone, leave me alone
Unless you are going to come over and sweep me away in your arms
Oh, what do you know, no one is home
i should have figured the second I walked in you'd run
So if you're done talking I think I'd rather just hang up

Don't you remember our time together?
You crossed the line, stole my time
And now we just email like I'm just some female
you drop a line, drop a line
This message you're sending that our time is ending got lost
I'm saying "I'll let you go" at the end of the call
but I don't know if I will

Hello, it seems that I can't come to the phone
But if you leave me a message, I might return your call
If I'm checking my phone every minute
I don't since you're not in it
That was your choice, not mine

Hang up the phone, leave me alone
Unless you are going to come over and sweep me away in your arms
Oh, what do you know, no one is home
i should have figured the second I walked in you'd run
So if you're done talking, I think…

(I think I'll just hang up the phone, leave me alone) The line was busy
(unless you are going to come over and) Sorry, you must have missed me
(sweep me away) You caught me at a bad time
(sweep me away) You caught me at a bad time
Track Name: Gotta Be You
I'll never admit it's your fault
'Cause in my eyes you do no wrong
But there's gotta be a reason for what I'm feeling, believing
from what I'm seeing, my vision's not so strong
I keep turning the pages I'm reading but I can't seem to follow along
I've been humming the tune that you're singing
Tears me to pieces that it's a different song

I don't even know if I've got you
I know you're the one I want to hold on to
It can't be, it's not me
It's not just me with this feeling
Ooh, it's true
Oooh, it's gotta be, gotta be, gotta be you

I remember the look in your eyes
said "I've been living a lie"
It came to no surprise, been trying to hide
Feelings inside, but it's like you could read my mind
Every moment we wait is a step I can't take
cause I can't turn back time
I don't want to regret, I don't want to forget
Just say yes, cause we can't rewind.
Oh no, please baby, please baby
Oooh yeah

I don't even know if I've got you
I know you're the one I want to hold on to
It can't be, it's not me
It's not just me with this feeling
Ooh, it's true
Oooh, it's gotta be, gotta be, gotta be you

Can we sing the same songs
if the words mean different things now?
Is it really that wrong
if we give it a name, is that what this is about?
is it love? Is it lust, I don't know but could this just be enough?
Please baby, please baby
Just for me, maybe
You could let your armor down

I don't even know if I've got you
I know you're the one I want to hold on to
It can't be, it's not me
It's not just me with this feeling
Ooh, it's true
Oooh, it's gotta be, gotta be, gotta be you
