about

Half Waif Brooklyn, New York

"Half Waif brims over with sounds: underwater echoes of Celtic melodies; mossy, blinking electronic soundscapes; the ultra- sad chord changes of 19th-century art music; and eternal, unending bhajans. A finely crafted glass menagerie of song..."
-Ben Seretan

Track Name: Nest
Gathering the papers:
Gonna make you a nest.
For you, my love,
Only the very best.

Quiet the machines:
I'm gonna give you a rest.
For you, my love,
Only the very best.

On the boat, you are rocking,
I am watching far away.
Close my eyes; when they open,
You have fallen in the waves.
Grab your wrist, feel the life drain
Right out of your veins.
Never mind, I'll keep pulling
'Til I know that you're safe.

Gathering the ashes,
Gonna take whatever's left.
I only know how to love you the best.

On the day that you weaken,
All your energy will fade.
Close your eyes; when they open,
I will offer you a stage.
Don't you cry, I'll keep watching
'Til I know that you're safe.
Track Name: Turn Me Around
Turn me around again...

We separate.
Oh, I'm tired of my own breath.
I'm tired of the sound that I make when
I respirate.

Wrestlin with the tigers within me
And don't know which one I will feed when
We separate.

And then you turn me around again.
You turn me around again.

Come down, turn me around.
I don't even know what I'm here for.

Listenin - I'm tired of my own breath.
I'm tired of the sound that I make when
We separate.

And then you turn me around again.
You turn me around again.
Track Name: Overthrown
So the self I've known is overthrown.
You should know not to place
Too much blame - our fade is slow.

I kiss your face and I know
just what that shows.
But the lie is my bread
and I bet nobody knows.

I tore the lily from its branches.
You've given me too many chances.
Quiet now, I'm so quiet...
Quiet now, I'll be quiet...

But the lamp stutters off:
When it comes back, then I'll be caught.
But the lie is my bread
And I bet I'll never have enough.

I tore the lily from its branches.
You've given me too many chances.
Quiet now, I'm so quiet...
Quiet now, I'll be quiet...
