about

limesix Orlando

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.

Track Name: Stay 15
And when the words were sticking together,
I wouldn't crack my lips for a smile.
But when I thought that you were close to overflowing,
I waited too long, with a cigarette style.

And everyone is changing their answers.
And everyone is fleeing the scene.
And you and I are coming to our senses,
almost too late to see what it means.

So happier now, take a breath in the car again,
and throw your arm to the curve of the air.
When your hair wraps around, touching your eyelid,
I can turn from the road and fold in a stare.

And everyone is moving behind us.
And everyone is caught in a dream.
But we are too far away to hear them,
even if we only stay 15.
Track Name: The Word 4 That
What's the word for when you leave me alone? I don't want to hear it.
And what was your excuse?
It wasn't good enough, I was asleep and you tried to push.
But I wouldn't be left in the dark.

Oh, what did you say? I didn't hear it.
Oh, is that really the best you can do?
I've been around, you know.
And I don't think I'll fall for that.

What was the word for when I was reaching and you tried to tell me?
What was I trying to do?
That's what I thought - you can't interpret,
and I'm bilingual too.

Oh, I think I'm done with disappointment.
Is there anything else that you wanted to say?
This is how I want it.
This is how I want it.

And now that I'm walking in the general direction of wherever you aren't,
what's the word for that?
I've taken my things, and all my extra room, and packed them away with whatever was left of everything you ever said.

Oh, this is how I want it to be.
Please don't change a thing for me.
Oh, this is how I want it to be.
Please don't change a thing for me.
Track Name: Colder than Winter
It could be colder than this in winter,
if you had no one to hold you close,
and wrap you up through the night.

And if I was there, even if time had stopped,
I'd make it across the room to you,
in the crystalline silence.

It's hard to find in the dark,
and if you feel me miss the mark,
turn me to you,
turn me to you,
turn me to you.
Track Name: Warmer Places
I hope you know I've got a secret and I'm keeping it to myself.
10 times you told me, so answer quickly, and everyone is happier now.
Warmer places on newborn faces - have you got a question for me.
I can prioritize, but you should realize, I'm keeping it to myself.

I know all we can't see is getting in the way.
So don't go quietly.
Please.

I hope you know I've got a secret and everyone is gonna know soon.
And what you shoot for will end up on the floor - criticize and try to regroup.
Lovely sunsets cloud your regrets better than another drink could.
But I'll be mixing while I am fixing another trip down for good.

I know all this harmony is keeping us awake.
But you can sing.
Please.
