Camera's Off 03:38
You are with me when I don’t want you to be When the camera’s off, when the red light stops When I think I’m free Oh oh oh oh You are with me when I think I’m by myself When the dial tone says I’m all alone And you’re with someone else I think about you all the time, I just can’t help it Feel guilty when I do If we are speaking off the record You will find that, though we’ve changed, I still love you Oh oh oh oh I was open to letting you back inside Where you had spent years unblemished At least I tried Oh oh oh oh Shades of mystery give you the upper hand Or so you thought Play those games you know I just can’t fucking stand I thought about you all the time, I couldn’t help it Hoped you felt the same way too If we are speaking off the record You will find that, though we’ve changed, I still love you Oh oh oh oh

Lemon Drop 04:03
I knew a girl more sweet than a candy store Couldn’t just stop after one bite, I had to have more The sunlight was dying as we walked along Our hands held together meant nothing was wrong Our feet keeping time, the traffic’s sustain The sound of the twilight crept back through our window pane I knew a girl more sweet than a lemon drop So overwhelming, she made my heart want to stop The revelry of a long afternoon Spent chasing new feelings, the freedom of June Nobody could ever attempt to portray The elusiveness of your touch, I’ll meet you halfway I won’t forget the recklessness of this feeling The headlong rush of blood to the head I would never want to chew through and discard you And I want more than I can afford but I can’t put you back

Sighing 05:03
If I could write a letter to say what I’m feeling I would send it the next day, send it first class all the way Because when I am around you, I lose my voice to speak And I lose my thoughts to think, and I stare at you and blink I just can’t help it sometimes, you’re more than beautiful than twilight Dancing off the ocean’s surface as the sunlight melts away To its bed in the horizon where we lay our heads together Because everything is ours and everything is you You’re more fragile than an orchid, your skin is like its petals Soft as ivory is white and as black holds hands with night I wanna hold your hand in mine, let our fingers intertwine As ivy coils its way up old stone walls, our bodies coil like the vines I’d like to be alone with you I’d like you just once to follow through On the promises made to the stars above Broken plans, broken hearts, are we still in love? No no no no No I don’t think so

Honey Honey 02:54
Honey honey, when you talk like that You make my knees weak, you make me quiver and crack Honey honey, you make me shudder and burst You make my eyes blind, pupils turn into dust Never wanted to be with a girl Who only cares about the problems in her little girl world I want someone who will understand Why I melt like candy in the palm of her hand Honey honey, you are sweeter than my Disposition when I kiss you and want to try Honey honey, to get more out of us You’ve shown me both sides of the word "crush" Wouldn’t want it any other way A little heartache at the end of the day Makes me write another song about being in love As an olive branch, another white dove I need you back in my life, baby I want you to be there by my side I’ll make you forget all your pain, I promise Your doubts will run away and hide How about we try it once more right now? I want you at the end of the night And with my arms around you I’m a happy man Make you cry out when I turn out the light

about

The Tet Holiday Oakland, California

The Tet Holiday is Andrew Ledford (vocals/guitar), Austin Gibbons (bass), and Brandon Farmer (drums). Swirling The Jesus and Mary Chain's noise-pop melodicism, Ride's shimmering dreamscapes, The Stone Roses' dance-informed psychedelia, and Japandroids' pack-the-room punk energy, The Tet Holiday balances bittersweet introspection with anthemic, crushing rock 'n' roll. ... more
