don’t slip away don’t say goodbye or tell me – don’t you say goodbye to an answer that we already know keeping time with the subway is it that i’m much too scared to lose control? maybe i’m making a fool of sirens wanted to be comfortable should i take a leap for fear of drowning? well i know, well i know, well i know – hearts never lie, they never lie, never lie, never hearts never lie, they never lie, never lie, never [maybe i’m making a fool of sirens… maybe i’m making a fool of sirens… maybe i’m making a fool…] remember when i started to kiss you? remember when i took you as my plus one? remember the past lives that we forget? crossed exes? trepidation? don’t slip away don’t say goodbye or tell me – to wait

i thought that there was nothing to hide but you brought it out of me trying not to be afraid of the complications, can we take it from the inner life? pray beneath the sun find our way to kama sutra – karma, how did i deserve how did i deserve you? you / taught me there was nothing to hide from, you / taught me there was nothing to hide from, / you, taught me there was…

i wanted to be left alone, to stare out of the open window i wanted to be someone else, who didn’t have no complications none to show tell me the plan tell me what i look like tell me the handle tell me how to cover this body tell me the future tell me how to keep living tell me how to find the time to breathe tell me the tea, tell me how to caption tell me shit, tell me the best look to pose tell me if we’re ever gonna make it tell me if we’re ever gonna make it tell me if we’re ever gonna make it – live ammunition the talk they afford us – tart like an orange, sticky from the rind cry to melancholia, crashing into us tell me the light tell me the way tell me the light tell me the way tell me the light tell me the way tell me the truth tell me to pray tell me the truth they’ll never pay tell me the truth tell me to pray tell me to die tell me to stay tell me to die tell me to stay tell me to die tell me today

would you ever care for me again? i’d hate for this to be our final moments: stumbled lines, the memory MOONLIGHT FADE TO: CRACK OF DAWN we were never meant to see the way it came to grow and wither tell me, am i a garden that failed? blonde baby don’t you be afraid of me blonde baby don’t you be afraid cuz i will never stop, loving you i will never stop, beloved i will never stop loving you i will never stop, beloved i will never, i will never ever, ever, ever would you ever care for me again? i know you’re the color blue i know yellow isn’t envy i know red is just a cover up i know grey is just machine for me would you ever care for me again? i know you’re the color blue i know how to measure distance i know you’re the color blue, i know how to measure distance

about

in short, things i've been chewing on since summer 2018 ~

from the beautiful nx records:
"we're beyond proud to present the debut release by wisconsin-raised songwriter and producer aden. "the semifinals" sees deeply personal, unfinished journeys weaving through time and space, dense jazz acapella and thundercat-esque bass, via analogue synths housed at the legendary Goldsmiths electronic music studio. recommended if you like bobby mcferrin, blood orange, joni mitchell, nai palm, solange.

aden recently completed an MMus in creative practice, at goldsmiths. "the semifinals" is out via cassette and digital on nov 22, with a launch party at the nx records shop.​"
