We've been waiting For a baby We won't change We'll stay wild When we have bills and Little children We won't change We'll stay wild We get older I want you to know that We won't change We'll stay wild I was trying to make you smile I'm always acting like a child But my only crime Is staying wild

You never answer when I'm calling Even though it's in your pocket You never answer when I'm calling You keep you phone in your pocket Is it too much For you to pick it up When we both know You never put it down Often Something that bothers me Is that you're always on your phone Feeling like you're always Lost in the small things Because you are always on your phone Often something that bothers me Is that you're always on your phone Feeling like you're always Missing the small things Because you are always on your phone Even though I'm always on my phone

Maybe if I come along We can just be in love Or maybe if I stay at home We can just be alone Baby when you make your mind up You never change your mind Maybe when I make my mind up I always change my mind

Come through the back door Out in the garden All of the plants are dying But at least I'm trying You're not twenty-four anymore You've held to expired ideas For too long The fire, desire Is hotter and higher Riding along the highway Underneath the Gardiner All of the lights are blinding Do you really think you'll find her? You're not twenty-four anymore You've held to expired ideas For too long The fire, desire Is hotter and higher It's hard earned I have no house I left home without it I have no things I left home without it all I have no house I left home without it I have no things I guess I'll start over now

In your parking lot It's dark and hot And we're double parked Waiting for the fucking world to end I was writing something down On the other side of a photograph Stole all the words from a paperback Draw a line If it's not straight Then we don't Have to talk about it We were just sitting around And thinking about the war and stuff Never felt so out of touch In your parking lot It's dark and hot And we're double parked Waiting for the fucking world to end

Everything that you see Is never what it seems People say things that you can't always believe Everything that they say Always means something else You should believe in yourself and figure it out It takes time Don't lose your mind You're gonna figure it out

I'm not selling my soul man I'm not selling my soul I'm not selling that Oh man What would I do that for? I was talking shit I took my shirt off And I stepped outside I was acting tough and They knew I was bluffing

It feels like I could fall It's easy at the top It feels like I'm about to drop the ball Even though I'm obviously not It feels like I forgot It's easier than not It feels like I forgot to drop it all Even though I'm obviously wrong It feels like I could stop It's easier if not It feels like you're about to drop a bomb Even though I'm obviously wrong

You don't have to change for me All the leaves on your tree can stay green Since the summer is the shortest season It's up to you and me to give it meaning When the whole world was counting on me You were the only one that really believed Trying to be perfect Isn't always worth it You can be yourself I don't want nobody else

The end makes me upset All those things left unsaid Things we haven't seen yet I don't want it to end With all things I know I'm sure there isn't more That's heavy If that is all we are

about

"Tearjerker make shoegaze for outdoorsy types, which could also be defined as "chillwave." Their new LP Stay Wild adheres to the latter's sonic specs, blurring all edges and smearing all lenses, everything is fed through the same sun-dazed, saturated prism. But Tearjerker remains a rock band, just one that works up a slow, steady sweat."

Pitchfork - pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/20805-stay-wild/

"Remember that episode of The O.C. when Marissa shot Trey and everything went into slow-motion except for that one Imogen Heap song looping for almost an entire minute? Well, go ahead and cue it up but mute it this time, because Toronto shoegaze trio Tearjerker have just written a song to the same effect but better. Their crestfallen, introspective indie rock fits right in between an unexpected death scene and the scrolling end credits. While Tearjerker's latest single "Perfect" sits a little closer to the ground than say Siguar Ros, to whom they are often compared, it's that same textural complexity that leads one to think of a willful balloon anchored to a heavy chain."
