I don’t know what I should do I think I really like you But when I look in your eyes I know what you want I don’t know what I should do I’m counting up for you, too But when I go for the game I know that it’s wrong I don’t know what I should do I think I really like you But when I look in your eyes I know what you want And I’m in love with your mind I think of you all the time But when I look in your eyes I know what you want

How you been? Did you hear about that new thing? The sun shines Half the time What are you gonna wear tonight? I’m okay, I’m alright I don’t know if I heard you right I just wanna go back home and be alone in my bed I just wanna get it done so it don’t get to my head Icing on the cake, icing on the ache just like he said I just wanna go home I’ve been down I’ve been up I don’t care if it gets messed up How are you? How you been? Did you hear about that new thing? The sun shines Half the time What are you gonna wear tonight? I’m okay, I’m alright I don’t know if I heard you right Got back in the middle of the night I saw the sunrise, I saw a lion in the sky Got back in the middle of the night I saw the sunrise, I saw a lion in the sky

Wow 01:31
Wow You’re running me back to all the times I was wrong I was so cool I never looked back, and I was full of myself But you know me when I’m hard on my feet I sing a song you don’t know And you were so mad When I spoke you, you never knew how to act Made time for you not me Loving you so endlessly, yeah I was so stupid back then Stand still in the hottest sand Flex your muscles in my hand You are the worst, man I swear Now I sing you to sleep You dream of us in the air I’m running away I’m hard on my feet With my hands in the air Made time for you not me Loving you so endlessly, yeah I was so stupid back then Stand still in the hottest sand Flex your muscles in my hand You are the worst, man I swear Wow

Lucky 02:09
Down on the west side You’ve got the sick ride You say come inside And I am alive Up in your bedroom I know I feel you You sing “Crazy Love” I know you’re so strong Oooooh Up in my bedroom Ride you like vroom vroom Act like a big boss But we know I’m too soft Out in the open We kiss in the ocean You’re the one for me I feel so lucky Down on the west side Down on the west side

Ocean 01:13

You got scared when you looked into the ocean It’s so big and it’s always in motion Well calm down let me rub in all your lotion Look at the big big bubbling fire It’s gonna get so hot you’re burning with desire I want you to be the one to take it higher I’m not scared when I look into the ocean Look at the big big bubbling world Oh! Oh.

Nightmare 01:45
I had a dream That the earth was flooded From inside out And the core was so muddy It must have been because of something I was watching on TV Maybe it was something that I read in the weekly And on the TV, they like to talk about the weather And then a Delta plane Crashed right into the water I saw it from my room It sank down farther, farther It must have been because of something I was watching on TV Maybe it was something that I read in the weekly Overheard at a party The melting of the earth Nightmare (x8)

What’s it for? What’s it for? What’s it for? I don’t know anything, anymore Who am I? Who am I? Who am I? I watch the day go by What’s a lie? What’s a lie? What’s a lie? Why can’t I believe anything I hear? Where’s the wind? Where’s the stars in the sky? I don’t wish anything, anymore I’m thinking back to all the games that I would play Walk to my calendar, cross off another day I don’t remember how to sing, “Down By The Bay” Oh why oh why oh why? Oh why oh why oh why? What’s that song? What’s that song that I like? I can’t remember, anymore Where’s the time? Where’s the time? Where’s the time? It pulls me farther from When I was young I would stare at the sky I thought that angels would fly by What’s a laugh? What’s a bell? What’s a scream? I don’t hear anything, anymore I’m thinking back to all the games that I would play Walk to my calendar, cross off another day I don’t remember how to sing, “Down By The Bay” Oh why oh why oh why? Oh why oh why oh why?

Mirror 01:55
I didn’t know what I was on about I think I’m finally getting over the drought I start to ramble when I open my mouth I think I finally got it f-figured out He wants to know me He opens his mouth I think about it every then then and now I didn’t know what I was on about I think I finally got it f-figured out Mirror Mirror on the wall Money Move me along Heart In the air Baby I don’t care I think I think about it too much now I think I try too hard to figure it out I didn’t know what I was on about I think I finally got it f-figured out Mirror Mirror on the wall Money Move me along Heart In the air Baby I don’t care Mirror Mirror on the wall Money Move me along Heart In the air Baby I don’t care I think I think about it too much now I think I finally got it f-figured out Mirror

about

~

“...equal parts Suicide’s brittle-sounding dead-eyed stare, John Maus’s wavering synth emissions, and the left-of-center indie-pop once associated with storied indie label K Records.”

-Larry Fitzmaurice for Vulture

“One mood she never entertains is boredom, a relief given how many of her peers overindulge their ennui. Ives is always curious, always hunting for the next spark. She’s not content to complain lightly over a four-on-the-floor trot.”

-Sasha Geffen for Pitchfork
