The tempo and spirit of the music is addicting and, once you listen to it, you will eventually recognize it as the soundtrack to your life all the way back to 2017. Their music has staying power.

Track Name: Did You Cop?
Did you cop? Oh you lie
your so damn high
you can’t hide
It’s not even fair
But when you’re high
you still have this sweet side
It’s alright, I guess it’s alright

Rosy cheeks pinned eyes
and a subtle smile then a wink.
You know what I think?
You’ve got a bag in your bag
and I want it bad
my love, the best I’ve ever had

My dear, you know
I’d do anything for you
My love come here

Close calls narrow halls
dark city streets
in a walk up on Avenue B
You come around with the brown
such a sweet sound
baby girl, I’m never coming down
Track Name: When are you gonna come home?
When are you gonna come home?

When are you gonna come home?
Its Christmas eve and I can’t sleep
I’m tired of being alone
All I want is you under my tree

I know it’s late and the snow is coming down
I miss you being around
I wouldn’t ask where you laid your head your head last
I just want you back

When are you gonna come home?
I miss you more than you can see
I hung the mistletoe
and put the Angel on the tree

I know it’s late and the snow is coming down
I miss you being around
I wouldn’t ask where you laid your head your head last
I just want you back

When are you gonna come home?
I miss your lips and rosey cheeks
Your laugh and Ho Ho Ho
And that sweet smile meant just for me

I know it’s late and the snow is coming down
I miss you being around
I wouldn’t ask where you laid your head your head last
I just want you back
Track Name: Drunk Hi
Drunk Hi (Some Lights)
Some lights just move in their own time
Sometime it hurts to get it right
Some tongues stay sharp, we don’t mind
We love, we live, we shine

Well you know what they say,
although they might be wrong
and you know what they do,
they do it all night light
and you know what they want,
to belong

These days these nights
they are so kind
They’re filled with blackened bags of white
But we navigate the rightous right
and we love, we live, we fight

Well you know what they say,
although they might be wrong
and you know what they do,
they do it all night light
and you know what they want,
to belong

Oh you know that I’d do anything
to make it on up to you

You can call me up when you’re all alone
I’ll be right over, I’ll be right there
We can sit and drink or we could just get high
I don’t even mind
Track Name: You Talk Too Much
You talk too much in your sleep
about what I don’t know
It’s got nothing to do with me
But you’re who I want to see
every morning when I wake up
I want you right next to me

Stop being so coy.
Do you want me to go?
Do you want me to stay?
Or should I stay away?
Well I don’t know
what you’re trying to say
and I’m going to go.

You know you’re so damn hot
I’d walk a million miles
just to buy you a drink so
we could sit and talk
cause you’re who I wanna see
every morning when I wake up
I want you right next to me.

We met outside of the bar
We caught up with your friend
and walked back to your car
Then you took that little
bundle out of your purse
And those lines, well they didn’t hurt
Track Name: Far Away
These days you feel so far away
I want to hear your voice so I can lay
on the floor, staring at the cieling
my heart racing, my head reeling
It’s true, there’s you in every little thing I do
It’s true, I’m so lost without you
It’s true you know, I can’t control this feeling
It’s you, you know. Do you kinda get the meaning?

You’re in my heart
You’re in my dreams
You’re in my world
And so it seems, it’s true
I’m so lost without you

Some say that I should play it cool
Some say remember what you learned you fool
Some days I feel I’m always waiting for you
Well it’s true, I’m the one that’s always waiting
For you, you’re the one who’s always debating
It’s true you know, I can’t control this feeling
It’s true you know, seeing is believing.

I never fell this hard before
Now I’m looking to even the score
I’ve never wanted you any more
