This is the second single off the first Slim Charles album, "Small Improvements in Life and in Light," out September 30th, 2014, on Little League Records.


yesterday crawled up into conversational banter between us
lucid as daybreak over our heads
calling your dogs off
true it eats us up, and after it does I guess that they fold up
despite a new wave they're all reduced to charades

how long til you fall asleep?
what would I have to do to keep you awake now?
sidelong glances at the sidewalk's edges
casting more than looks to keep you here
I'll do you right - your heart in my hands tonight

I'm alive (is that stable?)
realize darkness falls far from pride
if we hold our problems to the light
take this free fall in stride


released 13 August 2014
