This is a track that I wrote during the spring of 2016, and that I tracked during the summer with Fernando Marenco (Drums) and Nicolas Dinucci (Bass) as a part of our garage demo sessions in Montebello, CA. While going through some files, I decided to finish the track and put out a mix that I believe captures our sound as a trio at it's most raw and energetic state. The Rhythm section was tracked in a live take with only 4 Shure SM57's in Nic's garage during a hot July afternoon.

The song itself is about a man telling of how his girl is telling him what to do and where to go all the time, but it's totally fine with him, because all he wants is for the opportunity to love her.




Taking a walk, while the moon reflects your face. Can't we just talk? Girl, there's no time to waste. But oh can't you see what that girl's doing to me?

She's been driving my car, and she's taking it far, and she's telling me which way to go. I said "That's alright with me, girl i'm lonely as can be. But baby, let me love you".

So we just talked, for an hour...or was it three?
We're living the dream, and she's only 9 to the Teen (19).

But oh can't you see what that girl's doing to me?

She's been wearing my ring, and she's telling me things like, "Baby what are we gunna do?"

I said, "Listen to your heart darling, we'll never fall apart. But baby let me love you."
