The Tet Holiday Oakland, California

The Tet Holiday is the musical brainchild of singer/songwriter Andrew Ledford, accompanied by Austin Gibbons (bass) and Brandon Farmer (drums). Combining the pop instincts of The Jesus and Mary Chain with the passion and energy of Japandroids and The Replacements, The Tet Holiday brings naked emotion to their pop-punk rock anthems. ... more

Track Name: Camera's Off
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
Track Name: Lemon Drop
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
Track Name: Sighing
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
Track Name: Honey Honey
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
