lyrics

When you leaned in, closed your eyes, and you kissed me,
Well I swear on my life, I never knew
That my heart’s made of ache
And my legs full of quake
And my life’s been alright but now it’s through.

Because love was sabotaged, I’m getting over it.
You make the same mistake twice, you’re a fool.
There ain’t no denying it’s too late, now I’m walking the plank.
I don’t want you, don’t love you, yes I do.

When I gave into your eyes and stopped hiding
And let go of a life I never knew,
Well my head made a break
For the door and got away
Left my heart unsupervised here with you.

And love was sabotaged, I’m getting over it.
You make the same mistakes twice, you’re a fool.
Ain’t no denying it’s too late, now I’m walking the plank.
I don’t need you, don’t love you, yes I do.

And if there’s buildings in the way, I’ll jump over them.
And if you’re too far away, I’ll fly to you.
There ain’t no length I won’t take to fill my heart back with pain.

I don’t want you, can’t want you, yes I do.
I don’t need you, can’t need you, yes I do.
I don’t love you, don’t love you. Yes I do.

about

Trakan Chicago, Illinois

With rock-forward energy and surprise instrumentation throughout, Trakan's dynamic new release is a trip through the phantoms, weeds, and cabdrivers of Trakan's psyche. Bilingual English/French paint surreal backdrops for his agitated growl (think Frank Black, Tom Waits). Female vocals sweeten the tension, alongside notable performances from Rocco Labriolla (Joe Pug) and Deanna Varagona (Lambchop) ... more
