about

Summer 2015
Amy was in town for our summer shows, and we decided to cut a single to take with us on the fall tour. We have a full length album brewing so we wanted to keep it simple, maybe three songs max. Willy kept bringing in new tunes to rehearsal so we could decide which ones to record. The band was loving most of them and John had a little time open at his Scenic Burrows Studio. Our single was already morphing into an EP when we heard a demo Amy did on her phone. We got her to play the song again with some fancy mics in front of her so we could put it on the record. Then Willy played us this Sparklehorse tune at Cory's while we were drinking wine, and we decided to cover it as well. All of a sudden we had a bunch of tunes on our single, this sort of rules out 45 rpm. CDs can handle it though so here's The Delines' version of summer camp, the nearly full length single. Enjoy.

Track Name: Cool Your Jets
Cool your Jets
It ain’t that time yet
24 hours won’t go any quicker
With you pacing and getting upset

And when you get home
Misfit, restless, and alone
Even if you won’t admit it
There ain’t no place you feel at home

So Cool Your Jets
Pour the Tanqueray and just sit
tonight’s the only time
We ain’t that and we ain’t them

Eddie’s been on the phone all night with his wife
She said she’d leave if he didn’t quit the life
He was crying and begging her to stay
But the moment he sets his bags down
He’ll get that itch to get away

So Cool your Jets
It ain't that time yet
24 hours won’t go any quicker
With you pacing and getting upset
Cool your jets
Track Name: I'm Just A Ghost
I’m just a ghost walking down the street
Night siren’s flashing, they don’t they stop for me
People walking by, they don’t notice anything
‘Cause I’m fading, can’t you see?
I’m just a shadow, since you and me

I’m just a ghost walking down the street

I’m just a ghost walking down the street
Night people roaming, all the clubs are swinging
And the marquees are all shining
But they can’t find me, don’t you see?
I’m just a shadow, since you and me

I’m just a ghost walking down the street
Track Name: Gold Dreaming
Swimming in the river
The sun felt like gold dreaming
Everything fluttered away
Like disappearing burned out buildings

It was like a movie in the sun
The sounds of the city fading
The birds above us floating
In the river we were gold dreaming

It was like a movie in the sun
The sounds of the city fading
Everything fluttered away
Like disappearing burned out buildings
Track Name: Sirens In The Night
Sirens in the night
Sirens and flashing lights
The city life

I was heading to see my folks
Stopped at their old grocery store
In line I saw a girl I used to know
Nine in the morning half gallon of vodka, diapers, and a carton of smokes
So washed out and hollow

Sirens in the night
From my old room all night
Sirens and Flashing Lights

My folk’s car's been stolen twice
A stray bullet hole in the picture window
There was a killing up at the Hi-Lite
Gunshots in the night
Somebody’s life
Don’t they see it’s somebody’s life

Sirens in the Night
Sirens and flashing lights
The city life
Sirens in the night
Sirens and flashing lights
Oh the city life
