about

The album is a collection of 10 songs about love.
Listened to from beginning to end, the album roughly charts the arc of a love affair — from the hungry, carnal beginnings, through doubt and hesitation to full commitment and the sublime joy of deeper love, and then further on to uncertainty, stagnation and disappointment, followed by dissolution and loss and longing, and finally returning, full circle, to hunger.

Woman Like You

Mama told me not to go
But there's some things
That mama don't know

Girl, you got me down below you
And you're giving me
Everything you show, yeah

And papa told me you take heed, boy
Coz a woman will work you
'Til you bleed, yeah

But there's on thing that papa don't see, no
When you work me, woman,
you set me free, yeah

And when you do it, baby
You gimme so much to write home about
When you do it, baby
But I won't say one single thing

Yeah, when you do it, baby
You gimme so much to write home about
When you do it, baby
But I won't say one single thing

Girl, you got me down below you
When you work me, woman,
you set me free, yeah

And when you do it, baby
You gimme so much to write home about
When you do it, baby
But I won't say one single thing

Yeah, when you do it, baby
You gimme so much to write home about
When you do it, baby
But I won't say one single thing
Track Name: Could
Could

music: Eric Vincent Thomas
lyrics: Eric Vincent Thoma & Vincent William Thomas

Hey, I'm talkin' to you
There are two things we can do
We can worry about it changing
or believe it while it's here

It's all up to you
And so I hope you understand
And you will put away
Your fears

You could love me
Now and forever
You could love me
For just one night

But don't you worry
About now and forever
Coz we're together
And it's all right

When I was just a boy
my daddy sat me down
And said now listen to me son

Take every chance at tenderness you can
coz there'll be time enough
for other stuff
once the chance is gone

And I could love you
Now and forever
I could love you
for just one night

But I won't worry
About now and forever
Coz we're together
And it's all right

So let me love you
Now and forever
Let me love you
For just one night

And let's not worry
About now and forever
Coz we're together
And it's all right

She said to me
Where do you think
We will be tomorrow?

And I said to her
I don't know
But in your arms
Is where I wanna be

And she said to me
How do you think
We will be tomorrow?

And I said to her
I don't know
But lovin' you
Is how I wanna be

And she said to me
Who do you think
We will be tomorrow?

And I said to her
I don't know
But yours alone
Is who I wanna be

You Like I do
© 2012 Eric Vincent Thomas

You take me down, down, down
You take me everywhere
You put me under your spell

And I don't know why, why
I wanna have you near
You're the one I wanna show and tell

You take me down, down, down
You take me anywhere
You got me under your spell

And I just love, love, love
the way you take me, dear
Because you take me so well

I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why
I don't know why I love you like I do
But it's so right

You take me down, down, down
You take me everywhere
You put me under your spell

And I don't know why, why
I wanna have you near
But you're the one I wanna show and tell

You take me down, down, down
You take me anywhere
You got me under your spell

And I just love, love, love
the way you take me, dear
Because you take me so well

I don't know why I love you like I do
I don't know why
(You take me down, down, down
You take me everywhere
You put me under your spell
And I don't know why, why
I wanna have you near
But you're the one I wanna taste and smell)

I don't know why I love you like I do
But it's so right
(You take me down, down, down
You take me anywhere
You got me under your spell
And I just love, love, love
the way you take me, dear
Because you take me so well)

I don't know why I love you like I do
(You take me down, down, down
You take me everywhere
You put me under your spell)
Track Name: Vague
Vague
© 2000 Eric Vincent Thomas

She's vague
She's undecided
And with her eyes
She tries to hide
Just how she feels
So understated
And sometimes
I just really hate it

So vague
That when I tell her
That I love her
She just smiles and says
She loves me too
But nothing follows
So what am I to do?

I could love her until my heart
Stops beating in its cage
But I can't love her very long
If she insists on staying vague

Oh, I could love her until my heart
Stops beating in its cage
But I won't love her very long
If she insists on staying vague

Greyhound

I'm on a bus, I'm on my way
I packed it in, I had to say
goodbye

I don't know why we fell apart
But I don't wanna be around
To see you cry

I know I'm over loving you
But I don't know just how
It's gonna be

Coz in your love is where I wanted to be
And in your arms is where I thought I'd be free
But now I've found it's not the way that it seemed
And so I'm on my way

I'm on a bus, I'm on my way
And all the words I thought I'd say
Just don't matter anymore

Coz I gave all I had to give
But all I had was not enough
You needed more

I know I'm over loving you
But I don't know just how
It's gonna be

Coz in your love is where I wanted to be
And in your arms is where I thought I'd be free
But now I've found it's not the way that it seemed
And so I'm on my way

Bleed

Where are you now, now that I need you?
Where are you now, now that I bleed for you?

You took my love, you took it all
You cut right to my heart
And just when I was feeling safe
You ripped it all apart

Where are you now, now that I need you?
Where are you now, now that I bleed for you?

Where are you now, now that I need you?
Where are you now, now that I bleed for you?

Where are you now, now that I need you?
Where are you now, now that I bleed for you?

Where are you now, now that I need you?
Where are you now, now that I bleed for you?

You took my love, you took it all
You cut right to my heart
And just when I was feeling safe
You ripped it all apart

You took my love, you took it all
You cut right to my heart
And just when I was feeling safe
You ripped it all apart

You took my love, you took it all, you cut right to my heart
(Where are you now?)

And just when I was feeling safe, you ripped it all apart
(Now that I need you?)

You took my love, you took it all, you cut right to my heart
(Where are you now?)

And just when I was feeling safe, you ripped it all apart
(Now that I bleed for you?)

You took my love, you took it all, you cut right to my heart
(Where are you now?)

And just when I was feeling safe, you ripped it all apart
(Now that I need you?)

You took my love, you took it all, you cut right to my heart
(Where are you now?)

And just when I was feeling safe, you ripped it all apart
(Now that I bleed for you?)

You took my love
You took my love
You took my love
You took my love

Where are you now?
Track Name: Pull Me Down
Pull Me Down
© 2013 Eric Vincent Thomas

Don't know where you came from, mama
Don't know how you set me free
All I know is, when I look in your angel eyes
The devil's lookin' back at me, yeah

Stay away from me now, mama
Don't you cast your spell my way
Coz when you grab me and you pull me down
It's forever where I wanna stay, yeah

You're no good for me now, mama
Don't you run your game on me
Coz you know I am a weak man

Don't know where you gone now, mama
Don't know why you set me free
I just know I'll feel the hunger
'Til you come back around to me
Track Name: Away
Away
© 2012 Eric Vincent Thomas & Erin Gwen Thompson

You been away so long
And still I carry you around in me
When will you be gone
And I be free?

You promised the divine
And held the light locked up inside of you
Bound me up in time
Tied me to you

And I had just one plan
An open space for you and me to be
But in the space I made
You wandered free

Now everywhere is you
Your past is trying to keep up with me
But in its place I feel
I feel what's true

And I could not compete
With all your possibilities
And now you are gone
And I am free

I wait each day just for the nighttime
but there's no surprises when it comes

I need someone to make me feel new
I need someone to make me come undone

Come and make me feel tonight
Come and make me feel so right

I'm just so tired of only dreaming
Tonight I want to push on through

Let go of everything I'm fearing
Do everything I wanna do

Come and make me feel tonight
Come and make me feel so right

Come and make me feel tonight
Come and make me feel so right

Come and make me feel tonight
Come and make me feel so right

Come and make me feel tonight
Come and make me feel so right

Come and make me feel tonight
Come and make me feel so right
