Lyrics

We probably shouldn't talk
cause talking leads to thinking
and eyes wide open blank in the dark
We probably shouldn't think
cause thinking leads to questioning
it circles you right back to the start

everything used to make sense
we're testing it and our own strength
oh, no

if we don't leave now
we will break
we will falter, we will fade
if we don't leave now
we will harm
we'll regret what we've
done to ourselves

I probably shouldn't wish
for your breath on my skin
instead the cold air's traveling down
from the vents above our heads
and drinking is no excuse
though it's an easy one to use when
lack of self control has left you making
poor decisions for yourself

everything used to make sense
we're testing it and our own strength
oh, no

if we don't leave now
we will break
we will falter, we will fade
if we don't leave now
we will harm
we'll regret what we've done

ah, what have I done
what have I done
ah, I've gone and hurt
the one I love

if we don't leave now
we will break
we will falter, we will fade
if we don't leave now
we will harm
we'll regret what we've done

if we don't leave now
we will break
we will falter, we will fade
if we don't leave now
we will harm
we'll regret what we've done to ourselves

Lyrics

You look so dumb with your cherry red lipstick on
I can feel you push, but are you sure that this is what you want?
And is that your can-you-see-I’m-over-you smile?
Well, baby, I will bury you if this is going to be awhile

All year long I’ve waited for you to move on
You drove my patience through the floor
With your so dramatic selfish tactics
But you’re right here knocking down my door
With your pretty fingers digging deeper still

You too obsessed with everything thing I do
I’ve been losing sleep but I can guarantee it’s not over you
It feels so good to finally be alone
I was really tired of you torturing my telephone

All year long I’ve waited for you to move on
You drove my patience through the floor
With your so dramatic selfish tactics
But you’re right here knocking down my door
With your pretty fingers digging deeper still

You drove my patience through the floor
With your so dramatic selfish tactics
You drove my patience through the floor
And you keep me coming back for more
With your so dramatic selfish tactics
But you’re right here knocking down my door
With your pretty fingers digging deeper still

Lyrics

Are you in danger, you swore by a ship wreck
And now you are stranded sinking like a ghost
So sit by your door, and wait for me to storm in
But I swear, I swear I'm never coming home

And the winter's coming close
And my body is growing cold
And I'm trembling in fright, oh my
Cause I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar

I drown in the mirror, you notice thing is damn disease
And I never surface who I want to be
I'm shaking with bruises; I can barely stand my shame
Knowing every inch it hesitates
And it breaks and it breaks, and it breaks

And the winter's coming close
And my body is growing cold
And I'm trembling in fright oh my

Cause I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar
I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar

Cause I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar
I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar
I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar
I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar
I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar
I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar

Lyrics

The silence and the sirens
they're altogether frightening
the sounds of someone dying
and I am only missing you again

so here's a cheers to treason
and giving me a reason
for drinking well this season
when you will learn to leave this lonely bed
for every word he said

and will you still come around
to keep me on the ground

we might be better off then
with every inch of distance
so you don't have to cope with
the pulsing sound that caught you from the start
and caught me off guard

and will you still come around
to keep me on the ground
and will you still come around
'cause I've been breaking down

she said "please don't do this
yeah you know we're still the best of friends"
(every choice you make)
"and you know it's not like that it's just been way too hard"
(pushes me away)

she said "please don't do this
yeah you know we're still the best of friends"
(I'm better now)
"and you know it's not like that it's just been way too hard"
(but you're not here to find it out)

and will you still come around
to keep me on the ground
and will you still come around
round, round, round, round
cause I've been breaking down, ah

Lyrics

Green eyes staring as the room spins baby from behind your desk
Until you know you look so good with your pale skin in your bright blue dress
Well I talked and I learned and my tongue couldn't turn its tricks on you
So I tripped and perspired and fled from your island to plan my next move

And all this time I'm waiting for a taste of what you hide
But I'll know better when I am in too deep
You will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine

Sit tight, baby, we'll be just fine slurring over drinks for two
But it's only a chase if you've been holding out
Still, though the wine is tempting you
And you talked and you learned that my heart wouldn't turn
But it's too late now to lose
It's the catch in your speech, it's your clothes at your feet
And the way you dance to how I groove

And all this time I'm waiting for a taste of what you hide
But I'll know better when I am in too deep
You will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine

Sorry honey I'll be late tonight
Sorry honey I'll be late tonight
Don't wait up for me this time
Don't wait up for me this time
Sorry honey I'll be late tonight
Sorry honey I'll be late tonight
Don't wait up for me this time

And all this time I'm waiting for a taste of what you hide
But I'll know better when I am in too deep
You will be mine
And don't ask what this ring is for,
I have yet to realize
But I'll know better when I am in too deep
You will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine

Lyrics

So tell me, if you're ready
Then why are your palms sweaty?
Grab tight, your knuckles white
Wind up and swing with all your might

All that will be hanging, by days spent in the dark.
Have you had enough, have you had enough?
You build yourself a house, a house that's not a home.
If every shadow is your own, is your own.

Time stands still, your movement froze,
And staring down at what you broke,
And walk on, the dust will lift from the ground,
And settle into new found comfort in your empty space.

Eyes drowning, surrounding colours bleed into the air
And the life you stood by dissolves in arbitrary lines,
You drew just to have something to cross.
Have you had enough, have you had enough?
So dirty up your hands, the hands that used to,
This whole foundation let go, let go.

Time stands still, your movement froze,
And staring down at what you broke,
And walk on, the dust will lift from the ground,
And settle into new found comfort in your empty space.

So tear it, rip away my pain my memory
Stare at all the nothing you created.
Tear it, rip away my pain my memory
Stare at all the nothing you created.

Time stands still, your movement froze,
And staring down at what you broke,
And walk on, the dust will lift from the ground,
And settle into new found comfort in your empty space.

Review Rinse Repeat: Unsigned Spotlight - The Narrative

25.07.10

The Narrative posted on Review Rinse Repeat about the band's formation story with Craiglist and a small biography about them. You can read all the post below (recovered in 2021). At this time, Review Rinse Repeat did a review for the band's album debut 'The Narrative' that will be posted soon. The post below is was reviewed by Tanya Gelman.

The Narrative, Suzie Zeldin, Charles Seich and Jesse Gabriel

Hey! We're The Narrative, a three piece indie/pop/rock band from Long Island, NY.

This whole band thing started in 2006 when Jesse Gabriel (guitar/vocals) posted an anal retentive Craigslist ad that I (Suzie Zeldin - vocals/keys) was crazy enough to respond to. Craigslist is notoriously full of weirdos, and Jesse claims he wanted to avoid those at all costs. The reality of the situation is that this is just one of those rare times where two weirdos wound up being pretty good for each other. As an interesting side story, we had actually gone to high school together and didn't figure that out until a week or so after we started working together. To say we live in a small world is an understatement. It was a sort of creepy fate, I suppose. Sometimes you never really get to leave where you're from!

Throughout the next year or so, we spent way too much time in my tiny apartment putting together the pieces of what would become our first release, the Just Say Yes EP. Don't get any funny ideas - no hanky panky, we were all about the music! A lot of people ask us if we date or have ever dated, and while we love each other in a very familial way, we like to clear the air on that subject every once in a while.

While working as a duo, we realized we wanted to record an album that at the very least felt like a full band. We were lucky enough to be introduced by Bryan Russell, our producer, to Charles Seich (drums/percussion). Charlie is often referred to by people who see our live sets as a "drumming machine", "solid", and "fucking amazing, whoa". Needless to say, we're glad he's on board. Aside from being a totally awesome drummer, he's at least as weird as us (probably more so), and he's a key instrument in our writing process these days. After some months of working with Charlie and his bassist friend Brandon Strothman, we released Just Say Yes in mid-late 2008.

Fast forward a year: Charlie, Jesse and I begin to write and record our first full length record. With the help of our good friend Ari Sadowitz on bass, and Bryan Russell - we can't get rid of that guy - we were able to flush out thirteen new songs. The writing process was fairly simple - either Jesse or I would come into practice with a skeleton of a song and we'd work it out, rework it, and mold it into something we were proud of. When we write, we try to keep ourselves open to experimenting with any ideas that get tossed into the mix, regardless of what biases we're bringing with us into the practice room. The same goes for recording. We try not to walk into any situation having already sold ourselves on a particular sound or idea, because you never know when someone might have a very different idea that adds an element that makes the song better.

The record hits super soon - July 27th - and we couldn't be more excited. We worked super hard on it for over a year, and hope it shows. We're still at a sort of grassroots level where we do everything ourselves. A lot of people get the wrong idea and think we're doing our dream jobs being musicians for a living or something and it's just this easy wonderful thing. We don't exactly make money doing this! We all work various "real" jobs to help us get on the road or fund recording. Truthfully, though, the music side of things is so much more time consuming and so much more work than any other jobs we've ever had. The music business is a tough one to be in these days, and we know we have to work our asses off to survive. We have a bunch of amazing friends and fans who have been supportive and helpful along the way, and that has kept us constantly driven.

As of late, we've been focused on getting the word out about the release. We just got back from a two day festival out in Michigan, and we'll be playing a NYC record release show on 7/29 at The Gramercy Theatre with Relient K. We also have some east coat dates booked for the end of August. We'd be very grateful for a solid tour opportunity, and hopefully that will happen for us sometime in the future. In the meantime, we'll be doing what we always do - trying to spread the word about our music, playing in front of everyone we can, and continuing to practice our current songs and write new ones. If you can, come hang out at one of our shows. If you don't like the music, you can at least chat with a few entertainingly friendly yet strange people.
