about

These songs were written in a combination of different places and situations over time. Some while being snowed in, some in a basement, and some in my bedroom. All in different mindsets.

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: Muzzle
Stone hearted, but the lion will never know
Who's smarter and whose heart will taste of gold
Gauge winter from the time spent on the sea
where you shimmer like a ghost I've never seen

My coma says that I was right there is a place in time
Where you were once you will be mine but you're so hard to find

I'm sinking in a ship made out of tongues
Without thinking you can make out everyone
What they're saying when the muzzles do come off
I'm praying that my tongue will pay the cost

My karma said hey you were right there is a place in time
Where gun shy lips and fire green eyes will be hard to find

Don't tell me I'm breaking up just fine
Oh baby you wounds will heal your time

My coma says hey I was right there is a place in time
Where you were once you will be mine but you're so hard to find
Your conscience told you I would fail
But I gave myself to you and always will
Track Name: The Song They Sing Without You
You can't come home just once
It's too sparse and inconsistent with the rules
That I made up but haven't told to you

Here all the streets are the same
Covered in dirt where naively they stay in the west
I'll brush it off and give what's left

The world will spin without you
We just hold on and on and on
I will make my way around you
If it's the last thing that I do for very long

Here is a truth from my list
There is no time for a meaningless kiss anymore
We're old enough to know by now

The world will spin without you
We just hold on and on and on
I will make my way around you
If it's the last thing that I do for very long

You cannot feel it all
The anxiously the waiting
The chain and this ball to my chest
You tethered there and made me such a wreck
Track Name: Good Morning, I Love You, and Goodnight
I can't make it up
It's the shadow of the time we were in love
And it's hung over like the roof inside your mouth
Holding back the words trying to get out
I've heard them all before

Sheets and cotton t's
We shared together when it was you and me
Birds of a feather
Now it's hard to fly away without my wings
And coming into my own age
You've seen it all before

Can you make it one more time
If I promised you straight lines
I'll cement my words in truth
In front of God and you

I watch you standing up
And how one shoulder leans closer to the sun
As you get older you'll need help around the house
Getting up and standing down
And I think that I might
Oh how can it be I who says
Good morning, I love you, and goodnight
Track Name: Villains
Maybe I'm just being too nice when I laugh it off
Wondering if the weather is gonna change for me at all
Seeing as the tides bring your ship back in, I know
Maybe I'm just being too nice when I let it go

Who will take apart the right to leave
Come and take apart this bed with me
And I'll make it up on my own
So who will take apart the right to go

Oh the cynic in me comes out at night
And he waits in the streets for the timing that feels just right

Who will take apart the right to leave
Come and take apart this bed with me
And I'll make it up on my own
So who will take apart the right to go
Track Name: A Shape You Don't Know
I see muscle wrap your bones
It's a shape you don't know
I can't leave it alone
I can't follow it home

I say hope you say doubt
I see love in your mouth
That you swallow back down
Because you can't let it out

All of this time you were there
And I wasn't ha'f quite prepared
For loving you to death
You're gone and there's nothing left

At first you set it up
It's a sign of things to come
But it's all come undone
And there's nowhere to run

All of this time you were there
And I wasn't ha'f quite prepared
For loving you to death
You're gone and there's nothing left

I'll come clean
I'll say everything
If my God delivers me
If you forget when
I said those things
Would you wake up next to me

All of this time you were there
And I wasn't ha'f quite prepared
For loving you to death
You're gone and there's nothing left
Track Name: You and I
I am well aware that I
Have been hiding by myself at night
I've been waiting for the monsters and the demons to go inside

They all seem to know what's wrong
With the politics in every song
It's too right wing or he's singing like a liberal and just carrying on

You and I have fought beside the rebels and the darkest nights
Trying to chase this love out of our eyes
So we're making sure that we want more than cigarettes and liquor stores
But you gamble with me when you let destiny run it's course

I am not the man you see
I think of love so inappropriately
It's not a question of conviction
I convicted so consistently

But you and I have fought beside ourselves and those we let inside
Trying to chase this love out of our eyes
So we're making sure there's plenty of those cigarettes and drinks to pour
Because you gambled with me and collapsed right on the kitchen floor

You and I
