about

These songs were written in a combination of different places and situations over time. Some with my dearest friends in a band called The City Lives, some while being snowed in, some in a basement, and some in my bedroom. All in different mindsets.

about

Chase Kerby Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

I've often thought this would never come full circle. This solo music thing. Music has been my companion since childhood. Hope you enjoy the notes I've selected and arranged, if even just a little bit.

Track Name: You My Queen
Mother, I feel it coming on home to me
I need a brother to give to give me sympathy
I need something better coming on quietly
I need a lover who knows she loves me
Don't tear it apart
Not when it's right from the start
Right for me

Give me your finger, give me your family
Give me something to die with me
She's got her fire burning inside of me
But I'm losing my luck and losing all of my energy
Don't tear it apart
Not when it's right from the start
Right for me
I made you my queen
But you live disbelief
You won't love me

I said everything I could

Don't tear it apart
Not when it's right from the start
Right for me
I made you my queen
But you live disbelief
You shouldn't love me
You won't love me
Don't tear it apart
Track Name: What Are You Frightened About
Stop you're crying
What did you think you were up against
So the man of your dreams
Became a monster you met
I'm not trying
To make a joke of your innocence
But it's not what it seems
You never said what you meant

I told you not to let him go
You were calling me as near sighted
I knew you would lose control
But are you laughing aloud
You're so frightened
What are you frightened about
Track Name: Sundowners
Oh my sweet
I have a fear that you might be
Just a fading melody inside my head
I have come
To the place where I'm undone
I'm losing everyone and everything I've said

But it's not so sacred now
When you know the words, but can't seem to get them out

Now that you're mine
There is nothing I can say to you
Taking your time
When death is creeping up on what I do
I've got my lines
And you've got every way to see me through
Taking your time
When death is creeping up on everything I do

Constantly
You're my constant so is she
Don't ever think that you could leave us in your bed

But it's not so sacred now
When you know the words, but can't seem to get them out

Now that you're mine
There is nothing I can say to you
Taking your time
When death is creeping up on what I do
I've got my lines
And you've got every way to see me through
You're taking your time
When death is creeping up on everything I do

When the sun goes down
You're the only soul I need around
My heart, my health, my faith, and all my doubt

Now that you're mine
There is nothing I can say to you
Taking your time
When death is creeping up on what I do
I've got my lines
And you've got every way to see me through
You're taking your time
When death is creeping up on everything I do
Track Name: While I'm In California
God, if you can hear me won't you answer every single prayer
It's getting pretty late and I just need to know if you're really there
If Jesus said he loves me why'd he think he had to go out and die
Right now I need a friend more than I need another loss of a life

So God if you can hear me I am sitting on a question or two
If I could really love her what do you think there is left I could do
While I'm California she is sitting with a man at her side
She can see I love her just like I can see she's giving me time
Time, time, time

So God if you can hear me I am sitting on a question or two
If she won't let me love her what do you think there is left I should do
Track Name: Never Again
Maybe you're right
I can't go out in the light anymore
Until you forgive me
I wasn't wrong
I just was taking too long all the time
And made you unhappy

Stand up
Come on baby give me your love
Quit using every excuse that you think you can think of
I can't sleep
I even made up my bed
If you won't be in my life I need you out of my head

I need control
I need a hand I can hold
Through the night
And my cold habits
I wished is was yours
Just like I wished it before
But you won't have it

Stand up
Come on baby give me your love
Quit using every excuse that you think you can think of
I can't sleep
I even made up my bed
If you won't be in my life I need you out of my head

Nothing's over when it's deep in your bones where it could
Remain forever, it won't leave you alone like it should
I know, trust me I know

You said I could never change it
I just rearrange it all the same
But it's different
I'm here walking on my knees dear
Trying to arrange it all
Everything's different
Stand up
Give me your love
Track Name: After Dark
We've run through fields
We have stolen
We have picked up our heads when they're broken
We have trampled the should of the living to make them feel dead
I'm walking on ice like I'm Christ on the water
But all of my days just get hotter and hotter
I hope I remember to swim when my feet hit the bed

Please sing soft, please sing sweet, please intricate
We all love notes just as long as you're hitting them
Collect your air and all you find that helps you sleep so good at night

You're biting your lip to the thought of a scandal
We both should slow down this is too much to handle
But I and I have always been bias to the thought of crush

Please sing soft, please sing sweet, please intricate
We all love notes just as long as you're hitting them
Collect your air and all you find that helps you sleep so good at night
You love to dance and you dance in the thick of it
I sit still, I sit still and keeping spinning it
So God won't you please damn my problems and demons alike

I'm the one
Track Name: Get Out Alive
I'll be damned
If this didn't go as planned
I slept through my only chance
To get out alive
Here it is
As sure as this city lives
I'll never get or give
My love for you

So who will bury you?

Then she said
You'll be the greatest death
Dressed in the whitest
Of clothes cut for you

Who will bury you?

All I see
Is a light that was meant for me
And it's yours if you just believe
What's given to you

So I'll be damned if this didn't go as planned
I slept through my only chance to get out alive
Then she said you'll be the greatest death
Dressed in the whitest of clothes cut for you
All I see is a light that was meant for me
And yours if you just believe what's given to you
