  •      Sing You To Sleep

    Baby, I know you’ve had a hard day,
    and I can’t make the pain go away.
    Just shut your eyes and weep,
    while I sing you to sleep.
    Ooo, better days will come.
    Ooo, dream sweetly, love.
    Ooo, shut your eyes and weep,
    while I sing you to sleep.

    Hannah asked me to write a tune for her girlfriend Savannah. I loved the sound of their names, so I obliged. In the second verse I subtly show that I’m proud of them for having a love that in our world, unfortunately, isn’t easy to have. Let’s all give these two brave girls a round of applause. Much love, all. — Kavalier

    For Caroline

    Something bad is going to happen.
    It always does.
    You’ll stub your toe
    or break your heart
    or forget someone’s name
    or lose a loved one.
    Something good is going to happen, too.
    It always does.
    You’ll run through a field of flowers
    or feel your pulse quicken
    or make a new friend
    or fall in love again.
    The plus-minus in life will end up even
    if you just keep on believing
    and living
    for those good things.

    I like getting drunk
    more than being drunk.
    Falling into the haze
    is silly and warm and easy.
    I like falling in love
    more than being in love.
    Falling into the haze
    is silly and warm and easy.
    Maintaining the buzz
    is a dangerous game,
    one we usually fail to win.
    We just wake up the next morning
    hungover and wondering where we’ve been.
    Maintaining a love
    is a dangerous game,
    one we usually fail to win.
    We just wake up one day
    heartbroken and wondering why we let them in.

    Me: Sometimes when I touch you, it feels like time stops.
    You: Sometimes when you touch me, it does.

    Maybe I’ll only earn love
    like metal earns rust:
    with time and weather
    and drowning waters.
    Mark my plain surface;
    color it anew.

    You: Will you ever turn you back on me?
    Me: No, I'll never turn around again.
    You: Why?
    Me: Because I live to see your face.

    A song for a guy who just can’t admit he’s a cat person (inspired by this post on reddit). Much love. — Kavalier

    crowdsourceinspiration:

    Damn. If this song I’m writing right now doesn’t get me laid, nothing will. Gonna post in a bit.

    Was I right? Anyone moved to love me? I’m a pretty good kisser, but I’m sure you could make me better.
