about

"Garth. overlays tight vocal harmonies atop freshly produced tracks that blend 70's soul, 80's pop and 90s R&B. Lyrically, the EP imagines the emotional dissonance of working through and towards love in all its forms."

Track Name: Rosemary
Rosemary, baby, you’ve got me going crazy
Watch the cracks in the sidewalk, let’s go out feeling lazy, oh
Summer in the city, sunrise is looking pretty
That’s as much as I know
Golden light on the corner

I wanna tell you how I feel about you,
Now, baby c’mon
I could die tonight
If i told you how I feel about you

You you you….
If I told you how I feel about you
You you you….
If I told you how I feel about

You have no idea, you can’t tell what i’m feeling
Walking 'round in the sunshine, but I keep disappearing, oh
What we gonna do now? When you gonna find out?
Couldn’t get any closer, we’re just standing on the corner

I wanna tell you how I feel about you,
Now, baby c’mon
I could die tonight
If i told you how I feel about you

You you you….
If I told you how I feel about you
You you you….
If I told you how I feel about

It’s getting warm out, heartbreak is all around
The feeling is moving, heartbreak is on my mind
If you don’t take me baby, I’ll just keep going crazy
It don’t matter the moment, I’ll be here if you’ll take me

I wanna tell you how I feel about you,
Now, baby c’mon
I could die tonight
If i told you how I feel about you

You you you….
If I told you how I feel about you
You you you….
If I told you how I feel about
Track Name: Erika
On the left hand side of my fourth brown eye you can see it
And if you’re mine all mine, could you let me float away?
And the light it shapes you in the strangest ways
And if you’re mine all mine, would you tell me if this love will stay?

Tell me why, why you fantasize?

Wake up, Erika, phone’s been ringing off the hook
And you’ve been dreaming again
Wake up, Erika, the field’s are calling ya
And time is not your friend
Your emotion needs devotion but it seems to slip away
I hear ya calling me but, I hear ya calling me
But I’m asleep in the same way

In the midnight hour in the darkest tower you are screaming
With your eyes so wide ‘cause you led our love astray
Erika tell me, of your stories, you crossed through oceans just to speak to me
And if you’re mine all mine we could really run away

Wake up Erika phone’s been ringing off the hook
And you’ve been dreaming again
Wake up Erika the field’s are calling ya
And time is not your friend
Your emotion needs devotion but it seems to slip away
I hear ya calling me but, I hear ya calling me
But I'm asleep in the same

I dream of summer and the rain
Your cheek against my window pane
And if the tide would shift our way
We’d be alive inside the wave
The wave

Wake up Erika phone’s been ringing off the hook
And you’ve been dreaming again
Wake up Erika the field’s are calling ya
And time is not your friend
Your emotion needs devotion but it seems to slip away
I hear ya calling me but, I hear ya calling me but (I hear you call my name)
I’m asleep in the same way
Track Name: Human Nature
Took two weeks just to get the best of me
Spending nights trying to get you next to me
I’m supposed to be
Making plans, how am I gonna let you know, Oh
In order to give it all baby let the power go
Make my body go

“It’s all mine”
And I want you to feel like it’s all yours tonight, baby
Take your time
And I’ll let it wash over you
Taking control of you

Tell me baby, it don’t phase me
Come and take my human nature
Tell me baby, it don’t phase me
Come and take my human nature

It’s all yours, lose control, baby

What comes to mind when I’m with you
Why we can’t just break through
All this hurt we cling to lately
All we do is waste our time
Why is this the paradigm?
Watching it go on and on, hoping that you’ll want to play along and

It’s all mine, but I want you to feel like it’s all yours tonight baby
Take your time
And just let it wash over you
Taking it’s toll on you

Tell me baby, it don’t phase me
Come and take my human nature
(Can you give what I’m giving you?)
Tell me baby, try and save me
Come and take my human nature
(If you love me then say it’s true)
Tell me baby, it won’t phase me
Try and take my human nature
(Can you give what I’m giving you?)
Tell me baby, it can’t save me
Trying to take my human nature
If you love me then say it’s true

Say it’s true
You can give what I’m giving you, oo,
You...
If you love me then tell me that
it’s all yours
Track Name: I Don't Know What Love Is (feat. Watsky)
I don’t know what love is, what love is, can you tell me? Woah
Certain as the sunrise, in my life, I hope to see what love means to me, yeah

I saw a feather fall down in the wood, I knew that it should, Cause it feels so so good
A sneaking feeling walks miles everyday
Pushing everyone away, but satisfy my thoughts even when I saw

I don’t know what love is, what love is, can you tell me?
Certain as the sunrise, in my life,
I hope to see what love means to me, yeah

I know you wanted to do with the plan
I’ve been living a balloon in my hand
I’m shooting up to the moon but I really don’t have a clue what I’m gonna do when I land
Do when I land and act like I’m putting it down
But I’m just trying to keep a toe on the pavement, foot on the ground
Love, doesn’t leave when you’re putting on pounds
I found it when I wasn’t looking around, looking around now
I’m up in the clouds, plus buying extra toothbrushes and towels
Trust, fools rush in but who’s the winner if you just shrink and don’t do anything?
It’s the pits, the pitiful prince just sticks his chin up and waits
But nobody ties no knots, when nobody tries no shots
So face your pride and go try to go walk the higher road
Talk to 'em

I don’t know what love is, what love is, can you tell me?
Certain as the sunrise, in my life,
I hope to see what love means to me, yeah
Track Name: Can I Follow You There?
At the start of the night, you’re mine
Kill the brake lights you were on my side,
And we don’t have any plans, for now,
Forever, there’s no future, yeah, that’s what it feels like

Everybody wants what they don’t have
But we got time, if you don’t mind
Can I follow you there?
Everybody wants to live a good life
Have a good time if you don’t mind
Can I follow you there?

Maybe I’m, maybe I’m dreaming
It would make, make no difference to me
Maybe I’m, maybe I’m dreaming
It would make, make no difference

Everybody wants to live a good life
Have a good time, if you don’t mind
Can I follow you there?

Maybe you’ll be the one to say goodbye but,
You won’t see my cry, no, no, no yeah
Everybody wants to feel whole, and I don’t know why
Won’t be the one to say goodbye, it’s not our time yet,

Maybe I’m, maybe I’m dreaming
It would make, make no difference to me,

Everybody wants to live a good life,
Have a good time, if you don’t mind
Can I follow you there?

I could go all, go all night
I’ll be here all night, here all night
Dreaming, dreaming
I could go all night, go all night
I’ll be here all night, here all night
Dreaming, dreaming
Track Name: Past Life
Don't look in the mirror
I've been here for a million years
Don't ask my mother where I've been she thinks I'm undercover
Love, hold my past in focus
I step out of place
It's hard to stand on my own two feet when you and no one's over me, oh

It's not what it looks like
It's what it is
It's not what it feels like
It's how it is

Caught, baby in the sunshine
The moonrise, it's calling you to move to another life
It's a past life
Track Name: Love Like
Don’t know why I love you,
But I know that you got my attention
I don’t know why I need you
But I know that you are mine

Oh, Oh
What you want from me (2x)

I don’t know what I’m feeling,
But I know that you take what you get
Hey, I need something to question
But I know that love takes time

Oh, Oh
What you want from me
I see it clearly
You wouldn’t want me to be
What you want is my direction, I want you and your body
Oh, Oh

I want you to pick me up, pick me up, pick me up and I’ll hold ya
Take me home, take me home when it’s over
I’ve been thinking that we’re gonna be alright
Oh, but I wanna know
What’s your love, what’s your love
What’s your love like?

Is it love like running water in the summer
Bread and butter
Is it love like in the flowers, on the tree tops
We’ve been there

Oh, oh
What you want from me
I see it clearly
You wouldn’t want me to be
What you want is my direction, I want you and your body
Oh oh

I want you to pick me up, pick me up, pick me up and I’ll hold ya
Take me home, take me home when it’s over
I’ve been thinking that we’re gonna be alright
Oh, but I wanna know
What’s your love, what’s your love
What’s your love like?

Baby I don’t think that I can take
Put my pride aside to rearrange it
And we’re fighting hard now you can fake it
Hold me tighter we can’t waste it

Oh, oh
What you want from me
I see it clearly
You wouldn’t want me to be
What you want is my direction, I want you and your body
Oh, oh

I want you to pick me up, pick me up, pick me up and I’ll hold ya
Take me home, take me home when it’s over
I’ve been thinking that we’re gonna be alright
Oh, but I wanna know
What’s your love, what’s your love
What’s your love like?
Track Name: The Mess
I never left the mess we made, no
I never left the mess we made, no, no, no
When you're gone time is slow
Holding on and off

I think of the day when you'll see the mess we made
Oh, cause I never left the mess we made, oh

The mess we made
The mess we made
The mess we made

Take a hot bath in your projected sadness
It lingers on until you stop imagining the feelings you don't feel
Die hard dreamers never heal

I think of the day when you'll see the mess we made
Oh, cause I never left the mess we made, oh

I think of the day when you'll se the mess we made,
Oh.
Will you be there if I clean the mess we made?
Oh.
