lyrics

is this independence?
my heart lurches, leans and spins
is this co-dependence? no no no
I can't breathe and no-one's safe to hold
down here I'm nowhere bound
and sick of every face in this faceless town
I can't hear their words, but I fear their sound
build it up build it up build it up
now tear it down

chest hurts, breath burns, tongue tastes like dirt
never kiss, no never love, never hurt
never feel, never touch, never never burned
never never never try to "make it work"

it hurts to be in love
it hurts to be alone
I need you I need you to know

no bright white light no heat no spark
no nothing's left for us but this desire in the dark
and these transition hearts so wild
I'd re-invent my life if I could only find the time
i've never been that bold, I'm still nowhere bound
and still sick of every face in this fucking town
I can't hear the words, only feel the sound
build it up build it up build it up
now tear it down

chest hurts, breath burns, tongue tastes like dirt
never kiss, no never love, never hurt
never feel, never touch, never never burned
never never never try to "make it work"

it hurts to be in love
it hurts to be alone
I need you I need you to know

The Public New Orleans, Louisiana

The Public was formed in New Orleans in 2003 by drummer Bryan Besse and guitarist Jack Champagne. Singer Travis Shuler and bassist Ryan Plattsmier joined the lineup and they began work on a few songs influenced by UK post-punk,90s Britpop and American underground alt-rock. They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
