about

Wooing House was recorded in 2 old houses, 1 basement, 1 closet and an Ipad. The Yev would like to thank Steve Jobs for inventing the one piece of recording equipment that didn't electrocute them.

We killed three babies before Wooing House started crying.

Luv on ya

The Yev

Track Name: Roadtrip
I took a road trip
So I could breathe
I had to catch my breath
It came too easy

I like it easy
I took a road trip
I drank gasoline
I dined on road cuisine
It was easy
I like it easy

I passed a big pine
A tree of life
Oh I cut down
I cut it down
I needed fuel
It was easy
I like it easy
There's no truth
I know that's hard
There's no life
In the the dark

Don't put me down
Without a pillow
Cause I like it easy
I like it easy
Track Name: By The Bushel
My skin's greasy and sweaty
From the fun the night before
Stretched tired
The best kind of sore

Oh- I'm happy
Yes I'm happy
You're the answer at my door
Do you hesitate or live in hate?
Oh you're a flower
A flower
Your petals never torn
Throw me away cause I'm happy
The best kind of sore

I kept a garden
Scrape the dirt
Grew the food
That's why it always hurt
I picked the orchard bushels
Brought every day
I milked the cows
Caught the fish
I even learned to play

Left you berries
By the door
You threw them away
Oh I'm happy
So happy
Cause you're a flower
I don't care about you anymore
Track Name: Look Chikin
Did you know the sky's not falling
Did you know the world's not ending
Did you know the sky's not falling
Did you know the world's not ending

Look around
No one's running to the door
The earth don't shake
Cause you're alone
All this panicked life
Leaves me so annoyed

Please look around
You never think
Anymore
Did you know the sky's not falling
Did you know the world's not ending
Did you know the sky's not falling
Did you know the world's not ending

Breathe slow
Oh, we're here again
About you
The meaning of life
It isn't
Keep breaking down
Remind me to be ashamed
Now I'm getting loud

Guess we're not the same
Did you know the sky's not falling
Did you know the world's not ending
Did you know the sky's not falling
Did you know the world's not ending
Look around
Track Name: Meet Me At Dawn
In the morning when I'm still awake
Will you you be here
Will in the ashtray nothing on the floor
Stretched taunt jittering hazing tween days
A blind world running on auto

Will you be here? Will you be here? Will you be here?
I never feel as much as I felt
Wherever I am, are you here?
Will you be here? Will you be here? Will you be here?

Hidden from rays I loved
Lost in a haze missing trust
Will you be here? Will you be here? Will you be here?

I'm not anything
I am more than nothing
Will you be here? Will you be here? Will you be here?

Will you hold my hand?
Will you watch me fade?
Will you be here?
Past the march and parade
Will you be here?
Past our dawn and my grave
Will you be here?

Will you be here? Will you be here? Will you be here?
Can I ask for love? Can I be here?
Track Name: Smash Into Porcelain
I am a drop
From the faucet of your river of life
Resistance fighter
From the damn of emotion
I offer more than a fight
I will
Free fall

So I crash into porcelain
So I crash and I splash again
I crash into porcelain
And I crash and I splash again
Against your porcelain
Covering all
As I smear
As I drip down
Drip down
Your drain

Your porcelain drain
So I crash into porcelain
So I crash and I splash again
I crash into porcelain
And I crash and I splash again
You can wash me down
Like all the drops
I cannot break
I am a drop
From the faucet of your river of life
A drop
Within your drip
So I crash into porcelain
So I crash and I splash again
I crash into porcelain
And I crash and I splash again
Track Name: Spider Song
Spider walked through a mess of cable
Lookin for a place to make a new web
Light came down out of heaven
And now, that spider, he is dead
When you spend your life on your knees
Thinking you're not alone
Careful what you wish for
Like that spider, you could be taken back home
Man wanted a good life
Never meant a soul any wrong
Took a quick step
Looked right and not left
And now that man, he is gone
Track Name: Let Your Pockets Keep Your Hands
Yeah we walked on forever

Took a rest at every controversy

Every toke every sunrise we find

We brought love and sold our fear

For rags, and clouds, and miles, and children

Oh we can, where'd ya think we go?

No where, no place, no body

For clouds, for a roof and a table of food

Let your pockets keep your hands

Make your head feel especially safe
Track Name: Shiny On My Shelf
I've owned
Two pairs of boots
All of my life
One on my feet the other on the shelf
Them I save for night
I don't expect them to fit good
They make me feel fine
They make me feel all right

I look down and see my friends walking a long long time
I look down I loose my friends walking a long long time
Most of the life I spend waiting for night to come
Hoping for night to come
Cause I got a special pair of boots shiny on my shelf
Sitting all alone

No one knows I know
No one knows I know
I can't take them off I can't take them down
I gotta sit on that shelf till night says I can be my self
I got a special pair of boots
Shiny all alone
And I walk around waiting for the time
I can be myself

I've owned two pairs of boots for one pair of feet
Most of all of my life
I keep the nice ones shiny while night waits to come
Its heel's an echo on my life
Now the only pair of boots I need are what I own
I think I'll leave those others on the shelf and spend more time with the old
So many things
I'll never know
I wonder if I'll be old
But not if I don't grow
Not if I don't grow

Got a shiny pair of boots sitting on the shelf and old ones on me feet
Track Name: Rain For Me
Little gray cloud cover sun
It's hurting my eyes and ruining my fun
Little gray cloud bring me some rain
Wash it all away wash it all away

Listen to the sound of your fingers
Pitter-patter on the rooftop tin
Make it rain forever
Make it rain bring me rain
Again

Sweet little things like new beginnings
Keep the story from being boring
Worried brows lead to messes
Broken homes and empty houses
Make it rain make it rain again
Track Name: My Special Peace
In the middle
Of the earth I found my grave
I found it
Before my time
In the middle of the earth I found my way
Long before I died
Now I know I'm going away
I'm going away long before my time
I'm going away

Got caught in the wind
Swam against the tide
Silly thing to do
Especially when you know you're dead
I know where I've been
I know where I'm going

I'm going away long before my time
I'm going away

Humble's a place I pray I'll spend more time
How can I stay when I know I'm almost on my way
I'm going away long before my time
I'm going away
Track Name: Why So Cold
Is it cold in your heart?
The way you are
Is it cold in your heart?
The way you are
I wanna know
I wanna know
Find love in the dark?
In what you do
Find love in the dark?
In what you do
I wanna know
I wanna know

I can't understand
What makes you think you can
I can't understand
What makes you think you can
I wanna know
I wanna know
Track Name: Wooing House
I am, I am, I am, the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one- I'm the one you want and need

I built this fire, I don't know why
Oh, take the weight off your feet
I built this house with the roof complete
Shelter from any storm
Shade from any heat

Look at this house I built it
I built it for you I built it
Look at this
Look at this house I built it
I built it for you I built it
Look at this

Look at this house I built it for you
The fire's getting cold outside
The fire's getting cold
Did you bring any wood
Did you bring any wood
This house is getting old

Look at this house I built it
This house's getting old
Look at this house I built it
This house's getting old
Fire's outside
Inside, it's just cold
Track Name: Hotel Room
I would've moved mountains for you my dear
It would've been swell sitting beneath moonlight
Mais, je ne peux pas vous avoir

Could you've given me a try
Mais non

I missed my flight whole week went awry
I couldn't make it there to sit and stare
Under cafe lit sky
Mais, je ne peux pas vous avoir

It was in London when I knew
That we were to fall through
It was a dreadful day
I will never think of La Rochelle the same
It was there we were to sing and dance
Like I had tomorrow
But no matter what I do
Or how hard I try
Mais je ne peux pas vous avoir maintenant je ne peux pas vous avoir

Pas ce soir avec toi aujourd'hui ou demain
Mais pourquoi je ne peux pas avoir La Rochelle
Track Name: Woodshed
Just out the other side
We've come to a resting place
I wander through the window
The reflection's my face
I'm quiet now
Though I don't want to be
No more prayers now
I will be free

These shadows are my friends
Their family comforts me
Oh they hold my hand
As I travel through my days
I bury past beneath the fire
The fire that lights my way

Oh quiet now
I am my resting place

I breathe beneath a living sky
Trail my hand through the waters of life
I go easy, no reason to hide
In this resting place I've found inside

Oh I'm tired but I'm not alone
I breathe for a while it feels so nice

This is my house of broken mending
I lay quiet in my time of healing
Quiet now listen
I am my resting place
I'll go quiet now
I am my resting place
