Dear June (Demo EP)

by Shoobies

On December 23rd, 2016, we released the Dear June (Demo EP). Inspired by corny 80's movies and sappy indie flicks, we decided to create an acoustic demo. Dear June was recorded in our basement, with the help of a few friends. We hope you enjoy!

"A halfway happy"

Pretty


No color scheme to mask your face,
How'd you decorate the empty space...
IN YOUR HEAD
 

Delicate angel, capricious and strange girl,
Do flowers and fruit make you sick?
Distant and callow, you swim in my shallow
and paint the world yellow for kicks
Talk pretty baby tell me your name
Not phonetic, but I'll get it
Let me spell it again... I said
sugar sugar you can be my drug
you enable me, I suffer, it's cool
surreptitious with your eloquent tongue
you don't need it superseded huffing sugar to plumb
but pretty girls never pay to get numb
they just pray to stay young
singing...

 

"Do I make you dizzy?"
"Can I get you stoned?"
"Baby are you busy?"
"Are you better off alone?"

 

She's so pretty
oh my girl...
when you walkin' walkin' my way?
starving when you're seventeen
but darling now you're so routine
and you do it again,
girl you do it and you do it again

 

She don't care for introspection
but we depend on your reflection
It don't matter what you put in your nose
Girl they only care what's under your clothes so...
Pucker up, and settle down buttercup
Naked eyes make you sweat...
get... out of my head
and into my bed, she said
but these are the words you'll regret
my obsolescent adolescent
manifest your effervescence!

Peachy

Paint a picture
Breeding with your vices
Plain and simple
Existential crisis
So pick it up, girl you tell me pick it up
But are you eager to find?
Contingent upon birds and the bees
Gimme honey I can sing you a song
To prolong the belief of dogmatic absurdities

I said "Hey lil mama why you messing around?
I can come and sweep you off of your feet."
You should already know what you're looking for girl
Is it something faux, as sugar to sweet?
You say loving is a thing of the crass
All the birds keep on singing if you're willing to pass the belief
...but I'm a Nietzschean
she said "I'm just peachy"

Well it's cold but the peaches have been warming you up...
Søren junkies, foreign monkeys got you smoking too much girl.
Cigarillo Cinderella with the smoke in your eyes
A pale blue shade of innocence, my watercolor child

I said welcome to The Neighbourhood
I hope you don't stay for good
I know you go'n change your mind
But darling don't waste my time

I said welcome to The Neighbourhood
I hope you don't stay for good
 

I said Erica you're more than just a friend...

She said "save yourself. Just pretend."

Hunny

You think you're crazy baby
I could attest
YAHH-AHH-AHH-AHH-AHH
You keep 'em moving like a pawn in your chessboard
With a little bit of confidence
Did you "literally come to dance"
(ooo sugar c'mon)
You keep me coming back for more

AND I KEEP THINKIN'
THAT THE WORLD GO'N TEAR YOUR APART
AND YOU'VE BEEN SINGIN'
THAT YOUR HEARTS GO'N BREAK FROM THE START

HAVEN'T SEEN HER SINCE SHE GOT A NEW BOYFRIEND
YOU AIN'T BEEN COMING AROUND
HAVEN'T SEEN HER SINCE SHE GOT A NEW BOYFRIEND
YOU AIN'T BEEN COMING...
YOU AIN'T BEEN COMING AT ALL

Well I've been there once before,
and I never want to start a trend
Where you think you're something more,
but a lover don't f*** a friend.
You drive me crazy...
OH YOU MAKE ME...
(someone give it to her)
Well you're sad,
you can blame it on the weather whatever...
I'M NOT YOUR BABY, BABY

Listen here hunny...
I can't get you off my mind...
BUT HE CAN'T GET YOU OFF AT ALL


No no no
I haven't seen her
Where ya been girl?
Oh my God I love your hair...

 

CHERRY

"abundance and paucity"

LOVE

Despite your minor insecurities,
she's got everything she wanted, modern royalty
She's got designer, I'm in all white tees
and I can't be held responsible
She's dancing to the beat of her own drum
Take a chance before the fleeting emotion
'cause she plans to keep her feet up in motion
your little girl's lacking emotion
eighteen with a day dream
and she can't be irresponsible

well girl you gotta...
give a little..
give a little...
give a little....
give a little more...!
YOU'RE A LOVE MACHINE

You trade your lovin' for an artificial trip to the stars
You came with nothing 'cause your heart has been remiss from the start
Moon child that's a thing of the past
I bet you ... real good, but you're looking disastrous
If I ... don't call you'll end up on the mattress
In the ... of a cab while you mumble your address
EIGHTEEN WITH A DAYDREAM AND SHE CAN'T BE HELD RESPONSIBLE

Them squares have got you staring down the barrel of a gun
Lips of nicotine and liquor,
you've got cherries on your tongue
YOU'VE GOT NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE EXCEPT YOUR CLOTHING
GIRL YOU KNOW YOU'RE A LOVE MACHINE

SEX

Little Mama do you wanna spread your loving to me?
she said...
"shut your mouth and take your shirt off, you look better that way"
something's telling me you're feeling like you're better alone
I'm not hearing what you're saying but I'm digging your tone
so baby COME ON

Pretty lady you're a time bomb taking it slow...
keep it casual - you try, but you're not doing too well.
girl you're so groovy, why you always need a reason?
my intentions were pure, I'm sure you've heard this before
but I hate the way you're teasin'

I SAID HEY
WHY YOU STICKIN AROUND?
I GOT YOUR LIPSTICK SMEARED AND YOUR CLOTHES ON THE GROUND
AND I SAID HEY
I GOTTA CONFESS THAT I'VE GOT NOWHERE TO BE
YOU'RE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MESS

She said
"oh, ever since I met you, all I do is think about sex"

Show me sugar, you're a real go getter
with your long legs, curls, and a smile
YOU'VE GOT IT ALL
drinkin' liquor, leave your shirt at the door
twenty-four, and she's a killer with those eyes
when she's out on the prowl
(I JUST WANNA SEE YOU SMILE)

keep it quiet, like it better this way
you undress like the last cigarette that you taste
keep it quiet girl you're talking too much
well lets pretend that we feel it
but girl I'm numb to your touch
a little louder girl, you're working me up
I got my finger on the trigger, I'm ready for blood
YOU CAN SHOUT IT 'CAUSE YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR MIND
AND I'M A LONG HAIRED, NO GOOD, WASTE OF YOUR TIME

Drama

well I can tell you're not from New York City
but your heart will tell you where you belong
"sick of summer," "won't the world stop spinning
while the pretty girls are singing along?"
but you're alone now honey,
why you joking like you're killing yourself?
a little lady who won't spend my money on her vices or material wealth

'CAUSE YOU'RE A GOOD GIRL
WHY YOU ACTING LIKE YOU'RE BAD?
A METAPHYSICAL EMBODIMENT OF MAKING YOU SAD

you cry...
you cry.....

YOU LOOK LIKE HELL
BUT GIRL I COULDN'T TAKE IT
YOU CLAIM YOU'RE LONELY,
BUT YOU ONLY THINK ABOUT ME WHEN YOU'RE NAKED

and all do you is cum...
-plain about your current situation
with your Novocaine tongue talkin' all too fast
and I bet you heard that I'm... insane
but that's a risk you'll have to take
unless you want to end up deeper than your last
let's suppose you're acting mental
and then we coincidentally arrive at the same...
all alone you look disheveled
decaying leaves you so resembled,
it's a riot, but it's a shame

'CAUSE YOU'RE A GOOD GIRL
WHY YOU ACTING LIKE YOU'RE BAD?
SO NEUROTIC AND EROTIC
GIRL IT'S MAKING YOU SAD

you try...
you try.....

TO LOOK LIKE HELL
BUT GIRL I COULDN'T TASTE IT
YOU NEVER MEANT TO,
BUT YOU TEND TO THINK ABOUT ME WHEN YOU'RE WASTED

a cigarette will scar your pretty face...
second to none
a silhouette above a cityscape;
she was the sun
them counter culture kids you're hanging around,
will get you to try
OVER DRAMATIC BABY, ALL OF THE TIME

ethereal beauty, I am corruption...

Daisy

I lost my head today
Too cool for bed you say
So you let me in, but lead astray
from my words... to touch
Skinny lovin what's your style?
you come around every once in a while
with your beach blonde hair
I fell for your smile
but it hurt too much...

I said hey...
let's get carried away
not much to say...
but let's get carried away

I'll take my chances with the sky
the moon is cold and the stars too bright
but none compare to your eyes
when the sun sets on your face
little mama, who's to blame?
you and me we don't feel the same
the ship's sailed darling
what a shame it's the right time, but the wrong place...

I said hey...
let's get carried away
not much to say...
but let's get carried away

YOU'RE OUT OF YOUR CLOTHES
AND I'M OUT OF MY MIND
DESPITE WHAT YOU CHOSE
IT'S A MATTER OF TIME
YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE
NOW I'M PROSING ON
PUT YOUR CLOTHING ON RIGHT NOW
WE GOT CARRIED AWAY

you are my green light through the mist,
and every pause before a kiss...

 
violet.png

Violet

You're every color I imagined
but still you taste just like the best mistake I've ever laid to rest
wear your heart up on your sleeve's the latest fashion
you never dreamt you're second best...

SHE'S SO TYPICAL

look both ways before you cross my mind
I'm telling you girl I don't have the time
to be thinking about...what you're thinking about
one thing lead to another now your tongue's in her mouth
and I'm out and about... have you heard from your friend?
she loves the way I dance and that I play in a band
and I know that one day I'ma pay my dues
because karma is a bitch and she don't pick and choose

who would've thought I'd be the one you put your trust in?
I'm an antisocial socialite
your mother says "you're so polite" it's disgusting

SHE'S SO TYPICAL

so we're like..
"My bad, thought we're taking a break?"
you're latching onto anybody calling it "fate"
and all you've got me really caring 'bout is your face
and I hate the way you laugh but girl I'm loving the taste
and you're... sycophantic make a lover panic
gotta wonder how you're living so dramatic and manic
and you can blame it on the moon or the alignment of stars
but I can blame it on the booze and that's a hell of a cause because..

WE DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU
WE DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU
WE DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU
SHE'S SO TYPICAL

I said "Violet, you don't act this way"
she said "I don't really care for what you have to say"
so whatcha gonna do with a girl like that?
I said "kick her to the cut let her run right back"

SUnflower

Wait...
did I have something to say?
I'm enamored by you girl
I've forgotten how to speak
there's something about the way that you're moving
that's so picturesque
but darling you look so good
may I help you get out of your new dress?

 

SHE TURNS TO THE MORNING SUN
WHEN IT SITS OVER THE BAY
I JUST COULDN'T STAY AWAY

your back to a starry night scene
fact is you're more enticing
whack tune but... I think that it's cool
three words could paint a picture
of the depth of my conviction
your love is my drug
and I ain't get my prescription

SHE TURNS TO THE MORNING SUN
WHEN IT SITS OVER THE BAY
I JUST COULDN'T STAY AWAY

so much more than just your skinny jeans
but you were only seventeen
you'll find your spot in a magazine
a work of art and a beauty queen
knowing I could never change her
while you're smiling at a stranger
no sense in holding her back thinking
I'LL NEVER BE MORE THAN THAT

'CAUSE I CHOKE ON WORDS UNSPOKEN...
SOME RULES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN...

SAID YOU'RE MORE THAN JUST YOUR SKINNY JEANS
BUT YOU WERE ONLY SEVENTEEN
AND THAT'S NOT ENOUGH
NO IT'S NOT ENOUGH

"a perpetual sad"

Dear June

How bittersweet your memories seem to fade
you hold beneath you everything I've said
but baby blues, your eyes have thought of flood
is he the chilling of your bones?
I would kill to be the stirring of your blood

I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
I WANT YOU
YEAH I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT
I WANT YOU...
for my own

We're an hour late, there's no point in showing up
You've been changing with the leaves
it's called GROWING UP
it's not twelve o'clock, and you stumble out of bed
is he the reason for your tears?
I'm the introspective voice that's in your head

It's okay, when are you making sense?
got me caught up in your false pretense
but I'll do anything you ask me to do

HEYO! HEYO! HEYO! OH! OH!

Seventeen

well here's the song you wish I wrote when I was seventeen
young enough to utter love, still not sure of what we mean
promises were soon to be forgotten
"let's begin with your self-loathing"
taking pictures off the wall
do you regret your choice of clothing?
act like I don't care at all
when you elaborate about him

*speak your mind
I will write down every word
the best things left unsaid
go unheard*

well here's the song you wish I wrote when we would fall apart
struggling to find myself amidst a broken heart
sunsets they attribute to the sadness
let's pretend you didn't matter, I'll pretend I didn't care
we can make up like we're friends
and we can spend another year...
but I want to contribute to the madness

***

inhale your brief desires
exhale your deepest sin
and I will breathe you in
I will breathe you in
throw keepsakes in the fire
exhale to feel again
and I will breathe you in
I will breathe you in

AND I'LL HOLD YOU IN

you are my favorite nightmare
disguise you as a dream
things aren't always the way they seem
you are the space in my bed
and every place we've seen
it feels so good to intervene
you are a flower that's in bloom
and I'm still stuck inside my room
writing songs about the past again
you are the works of Claude Monet
with every word I wrote you to stay
so darling...
won't you stay the night?

here's the song I wish I wrote when I was 17

Autumn

"no one has done more to make me smile, and no one ever could"

well take my advice, if this room is still burning
I'll come to suffice and the tables are turning
Succumb to your vice, and I'll take what's left of your head
Well maybe I'm right, place your blame on the season
but maybe tonight I can give you a reason
so let's skip the fight. we can fall like the leaves in your bed

Early November, we're dressed for the weather in June
I hope you'll remember the nights that we spent in my room

Hopelessly devoted to you
despite what you do...

Well back to the world where you tremble and shudder
this town has been great but it's no place for lovers
so don't be afraid if I st-st-st-stutter your name
let's pack our bags, and take a trip to Montauk
sit out on the beach and kiss underneath the boardwalk
well I'll listen close but ignore when you talk about him

death by despair there's a tear in the fabric
of your favorite pair with your back to the mattress
got nothing to wear, well maybe I'm somebody else

we're constantly drifiting apart just to see if you'll miss me
well maybe I'm trying too hard just to get through to you
so help me I'm drowning, always in over my head
I'm nowhere to be found, maybe I'm better off...
on my own...

Hopelessly devoted to you
despite what you do...
I'm hopelessly devoted to you

Snow

It's a call to the wind
You've been doomed from the start,
there's a tear in your heart once again
but you... you find solace in sin
snow as white as your skin
of a corpse, but with low self-esteem

and I know...
what it's like, to feel codependent
but I want you to know that I wrote you this song and I...

I meant every word that I sung
it's a quarter past 1,
but it's something to do when you're dumb and you're young
but I... I wrote the book on brooding and self-deprecation
let's not pretend for a sec that you needed all your medication

now I'm vexed...
we would write, and argue semantics
your rehashed inhibition does nothing but falter romantics

what's a word from the wise if you're never through bitching?
your mother's a wreck on the floor in the kitchen
your father's all packed, and he left her alone
but I'm still awake and avoiding the phone
'cause your picture's still there on the back of my screen
with the text that you left but I still can't believe
that you're gone... and you're never coming back
'cause you're gone... gone... gone....

for as long as I live, this will never subside
it's the pain in my chest, it's the last time I cried
you're the calm and the storm, a break from the norm
you exist in my heart and the songs I perform
but you left without saying your final goodbyes
I regret never saying I love you but I hope you know
that despite all your snow...
I can't spend the winters alone
