Tommy 04:05
Did you catch my eye I haven’t caught a feeling in a long while Gonna go for a drive And let the time tear me up inside completely It was getting late, someone with your name Walked in and nothing much in the room changed I felt lonely somehow As echoes of you came out of the mouths of strangers Are you gonna be the one I think of are You gonna be the one I think of You went to clear your mind And found me kissing a cigarette outside Yeah I can’t wait for heaven to smile and open wide and eat me alive Are you gonna be the one I think of are You gonna be the one I think of I thought I was the only one Just a moment alone in the sunshine Just a moment ago in the sunshine

Pilot Light 03:58
My pilot light glows blue Every time I think a stranger looks like you I don't know what to do I don't know what to do My pilot light wakes me Sunday morning when I'm hiding in my sheets, I Wonder how the light gets through Wonder how the light gets through, I Wonder how the light gets through Wonder how the light gets, wonder how the light gets All its color from you All its color from you All its color from you I try to stay up late Counting candles for your birthday cake, but I Never make it to two No I never make it to two I try to go out nights Drive around and look for other pilot lights, but I End up looking for you Oh I end up looking for you, I Wonder how the light gets through Wonder how the light gets, wonder how the light gets All its color from you All its color from you All its color from You Just the dishes in the sink Just the hair in the drain Just the shit on the floor from the dog we never trained 21 plus 24 is 45 We're halfway to the end of a good life We're halfway down the street, I forgot my keys We're halfway between ending and being free

Open Wide 05:45
My body wants to be soft My body wants to be a soft fluid mover flowing Out and out and out, into dark But if the dark doesn't stop, I know I've gone too far My body wants to feel free My body wants to feel me, thinking breathing inside So I shout and shout and shout, all the time Cuz the dark doesn't stop until I open wide And I really lost it I think I've really lost it now There's no excuse There's no excuse There's no excuse There's no excuse For this My body wants to let go My body wants to let every fucking word fly My body wants to let go, go My body wants to let every thought along for the ride So I shout and shout and shout All the time Cuz the dark doesn't stop Until I open wide My body wants to let every fucking word fly My body wants to let every fucking word fly My body wants to let every fucking word fly Fly

about

This EP is the debut release from Oakland-based bedroom rock band Sour Widows. A true labor of the heart, we are putting it out almost two years after we began recording.

These songs contain love, loss, grief, anger, joy, ambivalence, introspection, and defiance. They were conceived in our private bedrooms and brought to life in the most trusting place we could find: together. We want to thank all the amazing people who contributed to the funding of this project - you helped bring our dream to life. We are forever grateful.

This project would not have been possible without the time, energy, and faith of engineer Cody Hamilton. You've been with us from the start - we love you!

From our hearts to yours, we give you this six song record. It marks the beginning of our development as a band. Thank you for listening.
