about

The Rooks New York, New York

Imagine if Frank Ocean and D'Angelo got a little too hyped at a Carly Rae Jepsen concert, then left to go chill at a dive bar with David Byrne. It's a little like that.

Track Name: Rita
You're picture perfect, tell me how ya'
Draw the skin across my bones
Was it worth it? You know how your
Memories fold into my tones
As our thirst gets the better of us
You cost the world a million sighs
What's not to worship? When you've got--
You've got dreams in your eyes

All of where I've been
Won't you let me in
Dreams are far to thin, oh baby c'mon
Obvious 'til now
Won't you show me how to make it real?

I hope and I cope but she won't feel me
Give it up, she's not looking
I bleed and I see in my sleep what's in front of me
Give it up

You're picture perfect, tell me how ya'
You make my heart sing
You've been searching, tell me have ya'
Made your Queen for my King?
I draw you in like air that fills the rest of me
What do you do when there is nothing left to breathe?

All of where I've been (where I've been)
Won't you let me in (won't you let me in)
Dreams are far to thin, oh baby c'mon
Obvious 'til now
Won't you show me how to make it real?

I hope and I cope but she won't feel me
Give it up, she's not looking
I bleed and I see in my sleep what's in front me
Give up
Hey yeah, hey yeah.

Wish there was a way you could see
What it's like here with me.
But you're just a face
And I'm out of place
And how to erase the thing that's tormenting me
Track Name: Lefty
I don't listen so well
But right now it's hard to tell
Silence seems to catch up with me
But your touch is all I need, mm

You write poems on my skin, with your fingertips
Sing the words as we lose our grip
But how long can you live on a song
when the words always come out wrong?

Every move big or small
Baby you got me so enthralled
But everything 'round us starts to fall
When you say, anything at all

Don't be surprised when I say how I feel, yeah
We've come this far I hope you know the deal
I mean what I say, though I don't speak much
While my heart's in such a rush
I don't need to hear you
Just need to be near you
Nothing left to fear
Oo just look my way, mmm
Cause talk is cheap, babe (this talk is cheap)
And I'm losing sleep, babe (I'm losing sleep)
Over you and your love.

Every move big or small
Baby you got me so enthralled
But everything 'round us starts to fall
When you say anything at all

[Instrumental Break]

Every move big or small
Baby you got me so enthralled
But everything 'round us starts to fall
When you say anything at all

Every move big or small
Baby you got me so enthralled
But everything 'round us starts to fall
When you say...

Hey, yeah
(When you say...)
Anything, (when you say anything... 3x)
Every move, every move, every move
(Anything, when you say... 2x)
(When you say, anything, anything... 13x)
Every move, every move
When you say, every move oh,
When you say
When you say
When you say, Yeah, Ohh
Hey hey, when you , when you say, cause I say, we say, "hey"
Hey, yeah.


[Outro fade out]
Track Name: Come Closer
Caught up, let's take a moment to recover
I won't, find my loving from another
If there was any doubt of who in control
You knew
I couldn't stand to lose it all
Not with you

Come closer, there's no need to hide
It's only a matter of time
Before we get out of the dark, oh
And into the light
So come closer, and we'll be alright, yeah

This time, let's step back before we fall
'Cause when it's good, it's good
And when our back's against the wall
Oh, if there was any doubt of who was in control
You knew
I couldn't stand to lose it all,
Not with you, baby, baby

Come closer, there's no need to hide
It's only a matter of time
Before we get out of the dark, oh
And into the light
So come closer, and we'll be alright

[Instrumental Break]

Hey, hey, hey, yeah
Hey, hey, hey, yeah, uh-huh
Hey, hey, ya-hey
Hey hey ya-hey

Come closer, there's no need to hide
Baby, it's only a matter of time
Come closer (baby), there's no need to hide
Come closer (baby) you know what's on my mind
Come closer (baby), there's no need to hide
It's only a matter of time
Before we get out of the dark (come closer), oh
And into the light

Come closer, there's no need to hide
It's only a matter of time
Before we get out of the dark, oh
And into the light
So come closer, and we'll be alright.
Track Name: You're The One
I've seen you, goin' round the way
But, when I'm with you, there's nothing I can say, ah yeah.

'Cause baby (baby), baby when you smile
Oh baby (baby), I wish you could stay a while
But now...

Now I'm singing
Oh, oh, oh, woah (woah) (2x)

Please tell me what I can do
To prove what I feel inside my heart is true
Not giving up, I want your love
Baby c'mon
We only have a few more moments 'til the magic is gone

'Cause baby (baby), when you look my way
Oh baby (baby), what more can I say?
To make you stay

Now I'm singing
Oh, oh, oh, woah (woah) (4x)

[Sax Solo]

Baby you're the one, I said, baby you're the one for me, mmhm
Baby you're the one, I said, baby you're the one for me, yeah
Baby you're the one, baby you're the one for me
Baby you're the one, baby you're the one, baby you're the one (one)

Oh, oh, oh, woah (woah) (4x)

Baby you're the one, I said, baby you're the one for me
(Oh baby, Oo baby)
Baby you're the one, I said, baby you're the one for me (woah)
Baby you're the one, baby you're the one for me
(Hey, yes you are, you are, you are)
Baby you're the one, baby you're the one, baby you're the one.
Track Name: Something You Can Take
Wish you'd slow down
Oh you're moving faster than me, can't you stay a while?
There's a part of me
That melts every time you smile
We haven't had much time
So I'll wait until it's right

When you see there's something you can take from me
Don't let me go

I can't help but be scared
Infatuation won't last
And I wanted you to be my future
And not-- not my past

When you see there's something you can take from me
Don't let me go, no

You don't have to move every time that you get close
And you don't have to be the one who always regrets the most
Oh I can be exactly what you need
So hold on for now

[Guitar solo]

When you see there's something you can take from me (3x)
When you see there's something you can take (there's something you can take from me 8x)

Oo when you see
There's something you can take
There's something you can take
From me.
