ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Listening to Jealous Creatures’ debut full-length, Little Heaven Big Sky, I find myself right back there at my boombox, listening to tunes by Sand Rubies and Cowboy Junkies and excitedly dubbing them onto a tape right where they sounded best in the all-in-my-head story. On the band’s previous EP, there was a hint of Western-sounding loneliness, but here the Creatures have grabbed onto that with both hands and held it tight. The drifting, far-off guitars and Hirsch’s melancholy, sometimes bitter, Margo Timmins-like vocals make for excellent road music, just like that long-trashed tape of mine; the sound of the distant highway to Somewhere Else."

- Jeremy Hart, Space City Rock


Recorded June 2011 at the Bubble in Austin by Chris "Frenchie" Smith.

Lyrics


Resonate

So he came and went
No deeds to repent
Didn't change anything:
Something taken, something owed me

Eyes that never raised
In a silent daze
Quiet and cowardly
What was it I ever did see?

Here we go again
There we had our chance
Though it's not our fate
Something will always resonate

And so it goes
The true nature shows
Cut it out of my heart
No one else will even know

Watching myself bleed
Dripping endlessly
Something has to stop
You'll never be the one I need

Here we go again
There we had our chance
Though it's not our fate
Something will always resonate

Keep the apple
Take the blame
It will always
Be the same


Nothing to See Here

Don't look so interested
Ain't nothing to see
You know you gave it away
Don't try to give it to me

I don't want to hear it
And I don't want to know
Anything about anything about you
I just want you to...

You know I already told you
You know what I'm going to say
I don't want you to be near me
So just go away

I don't want to hear it
And I don't want to know
Anything about anything about you
So...

I don't know why you expect something from me
I don't owe you anything
There's no good reason why you pin your problems on me
Don't ask anything of me

Don't look so dejected
You knew it all from the start
I didn't ask for devotion
I didn't ask for your heart


Play Along

I wonder if the'll notice
Shred my callouses for you
You know I've laid my heart out,
Electric tape and super glue

Have you ever played this song?
I'll tell you how it goes:
You and I will play along
Until everybody knows

They're looking at you different
Think they might have figured out
Spent picks and missing patches
Do they know what it's about?

Have you ever played this song?
I'll tell you how it goes:
You and I will play along
Until everybody knows

I might have gotten sloppy
Maybe I want them to know
Baby, I'm no good at sharing
And three's too many for me now


Sunless Realm

Purple veins pulse through thin skin
A veil lifts, you're sinking in
Didn't they tell you, "never give in, never give in"

The weakness comes, you can't even see
Hear all the voices, don't know how many
Didn't they tell you, "you'd never be free, you'd never be free"

Here in the sunless realm, it's easy to stay
But you can never get away

You can sense it, nothing is real
You can taste it, that make-believe feel
Didn't they tell you, "she won't keep a deal, she won't keep a deal"

Here in the sunless realm, it's easy to stay
But you can never get away


Anywhere with You

You lean against me in public
You know to me, it's all the same
Watching your heavy eyes close slowly
As I sing you to sleep on a subway train

And this is just where I would like to be
Anywhere with you is fine with me

You say you want things to be different
I'm just tired of living in the past
I know you'll always be there for me
And all you'd ever have to do is ask

And this is just where I would like to be
Anywhere with you is fine with me


If You Want To

Never trust a melody
They just sell things you don't need
For me, it's take it or leave it
For you, it's take it and leave
I guess I'm still that naive

Bloody lip, a broken pair
Wishing for what isn't there
Go ahead, push it together
Make it better again
I guess it's fun to pretend

If you want to, you can touch me
Tame this heart you have enslaved
If you want to, you can heal me
But I'm not one to be saved

Throw my treasures to the fire
Poets make the best of liars
Is there anything you can think of?
Anything you want from me?
You can take what you can see

If you want to, you can touch me
Tame this heart you have enslaved
If you want to, you can heal me
But I'm not one to be saved


Disappear for Me

Disappear for me
Turn your back so I don't see
The things I shouldn't want
Your eyes haunt me

I don't want you to be honest
Unless you promise it won't hurt
I felt the flame of desire
But I'm not looking to get burnt

Pour into my soul
Fill me with some kind of faith
Make me believe
Make me see this isn't all just a waste

I don't want you to be honest
Unless you promise it won't hurt
I felt the flame of desire
But I'm not looking to get burnt


Just a Memory

Are you wishing for it,
Are you waiting all alone?
Are you thinking it was,
Are you hoping they were wrong?
Are you running after,
Are you tasting the dream?
Are you even listening?

Am I wishing for it,
Am I hoping this will end?
Am I breaking here,
Or am I still willing to bend?
Am I chasing after,
Am I willing to
Give up everything just for you?

Sometimes I swear I can,
Sometimes I can feel you near
Sometimes I just have to,
Sometimes I wonder, are you here?
Sometimes I can't stand it
Sometimes I don't know
Will you take me with if you go?

I know all I'll be
I know I'm just a memory


Baby for You

Maybe there's nothing to save
And maybe I'm just playing brave
But maybe for you, I've done this for you

Maybe there's nothing to tell
Or maybe no one will listen well
But maybe for you, I've kept this for you

Heavy in our hearts, I can feel the weight
Words which will destroy, they lie calmly in wait
Secrets you must hold to keep them satisfied
Secrets I will keep, the secrets and the lies,
All to keep you by my side.

Maybe I had to take the risk
Or maybe I could not resist
But baby, for you, I do this for you


Such a Tease

Stars in our eyes, X's on our hands
Come in closer, repeat on command

You've got to know what I want
'Cuz you're such a tease
If you haven't figured out by now,
Jesus Christ, you're so naive

Plastic bottles and cigarette butts
Effects over quality as such

You've got to know what I want
'Cuz you're such a tease
If you haven't figured out by now,
Jesus Christ, you're so naive

The grave's a good place for a secret like this
Indecision sealed sweet with a kiss

Open your eyes and see for yourself:
This behavior could get you topshelved

You've got to know what I want
'Cuz you're such a tease
If you haven't figured out by now,
Jesus Christ, you're so naive


Open Your Eyes

My intentions are pure
Theirs are clouded by lies
I'm not here to hurt you
Or to patronize, but

When will you open your eyes?
When will you realize?

You know they're out to get you
You know who you should trust
But you can't help believing,
Leaving me in disgust

When will you open your eyes?
When will you realize?

If you don't want to hear
If you don't want to see
If you don't want to know
Then don't ask me

I can't play this game
Do what you've got to do
We both know you're not helpless
And I'm not going to save you

When will you open your eyes?
When will you realize?


Little Heaven Big Sky

We're not the same, are we?
I knew it wouldn't last
My future before me
All you see is past

The stars don't lie to me
Do they tell you the same?
No need to feel guilty
There's no one here to blame

Little piece of heaven in that great big sky

It wasn't meant to be
But it was worth the fight
I know you'll think of me
When you see the starry night

Little piece of heaven in that great big sky
