lyrics

It's hard to note that I see you in my sleep
and all I feel is a discontentment when I wake here.
Oh how I wanna be near, how I covet your secret
smile you withhold for those who've piqued it
your interest, I'll keep it.

I was happy 'til I met you
but something has shifted
I was headed down the long road
now things aren't so written.

You marched right into the foreground
the others deficient
I was happy 'til I met you
now I'm confused.

With best intentions I stifle my feelings
and quell our interactions to small talk without meaning.
Oh how I wanna speak plan, how I covet your secret
smile you withhold for those who've piqued it
your interest, I'll keep it.

I was happy 'til I met you
but something has shifted
I was headed down the long road
now things aren't so written.

You marched right into the foreground
the others deficient
I was happy 'til I met you
now I'm confused.

about

Bayou Melbourne, Australia

Melbourne band Bayou weave together cascading guitar lines, noirish vocals, eerie female harmonies and propulsive drumming to create a sound that's haunting, hypnotic and dirty all at the same time – a fuzzed-out missive from some enticing underworld.
