Z M Extremely relatable, "Nearly Hollow" captures a very distinct feeling and state of being. The music progresses alongside the lyrics, creating a living, breathing soundscape using only vocals and guitar. Favorite track: Nearly Hollow.

Track Name: Jessey Come Over
Oh my god, what a nightmare
that we find ourselves in,
that we find ourselves in

Your head spins like a prize wheel
while I'm giving goosebumps
to a woman wearing pumps

She walks down to the basement
with her hair tied into a bow
with a knot in the back,
with a knot in the back

Oh, Jessey, would you come over please?
Just to sing me to sleep,
just to sing me to sleep

We walked down to the corner store
just to buy us some drinks,
just to buy us some drinks

Oh, my god what a night it's been
Track Name: Weigh Me Down
Oh Jessey,
can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

You look like you just saw a ghost

Oh, Jessey,
can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

You look like you just saw a ghost

They call come to see your glow
and thank god for all the pleasures that we know
in our lives

While you washed your hands
in the bathroom sink
I was drifting off
All the years are starting to weigh me down

Oh Jessey,
can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

You look like you just saw a ghost

Oh, Jessey,
can you hear me?
Am I getting through?

You look like you just saw a ghost

Oh, darling, can you hear me? Can you hear me?
(You were washing dishes)
You look like you just saw a ghost
(In the kitchen sink)
Oh darling, can you hear me? Can you hear me?
(I was drawing pictures)
You look like you just saw a ghost
(Oh my god, I'm starting to fall for you)
Track Name: Nearly Hollow
Now, somewhere in the back of my head
there's a man with a gun
and a pack of cigarettes
and he tells me not to cry
Says, it'll be alright

Now all the men are calling out my name
but I don't have the time or patience for their
confusing auras

You're all giving me a migraine
Can we sit and talk about it for a while?

Found you in the dark
sitting with your halo
wrapped around your neck
Please don't hesitate to tell me

I don't have a chance
We were watching pictures
go up in the sky
Never had a feeling like this

Found you in the dark
sitting with your halo
wrapped around your neck
Please don't hesitate to tell me

You're not acting like the person that I used to know
Can we sit and talk about it for a while?

Now, someone else is calling out your name
but you're too scared to ask why
so you just take a long walk
and think about your life

Then you buy yourself a knife

Now, all the angels calling out your name
are just the same
as all the devils that you used to turn your back on
when you had no will to live

Can you give yourself a rest?
Can we sit and talk about it for a while?

Found you in the dark
sitting nearly hollow
wrapped up in a cloak
Please don't hesitate to tell me

I don't have a chance
you were just as strong
I'm not gonna let
myself be controlled anymore

Found you in the dark
sitting with your halo
wrapped around your neck
Please don't hesitate to tell me

Can we give ourselves a rest?
Can we just go on and leave it for a while?

Now, somewhere just behind my head
there's a man with a gun and a pack of cigarettes
and he tells me not to cry
Says, it'll be alright
Track Name: Can We Go Home
Can we go home?
I don't like the way you've been talking to me tonight
Jessey, can we go home?
I don't like the way you've been talking to me tonight

Through the stained glass of
isolation
all of you look like
broken dolls

Now I feel so alone
You've been looking at me like I'm someone that you don't know
But Jessey, it's me
It's the girl that you put all your thoughts and dreams into
(Just give me a sign)
Track Name: Fire Tongs
I was just finding out
I would have to have all of my teeth pulled
So I walked back into the
bedroom where my lover laid in bed still

He stands up, walks across the room
picks up the fire tongs
At least somebody's having a good time, but I'm not
the one for you

Angel came down from heaven and told me
Someone you love is messing around with you
Fa-la-la-la, come down to the river
All of your friends are waiting here just for you

Angel came down from heaven and told me
Someone you love is messing around with you
Fa-la-la-la, come down to the river
All of your friends are waiting here just for you

I was just finding out
I would have to have all of my teeth pulled
So I walked back into the bedroom
where my lover used to lay still

He sits down, pulls out a flask
of whiskey and says listen, now
If somebody's courting a ghost,
then you have to abandon them

Angel came down from heaven and told me
Someone you love is messing around with you
Fa-la-la-la, come down to the river
All of your friends are waiting here just for you
