Waiting 03:40
Silence in the other room Patience is an empty tomb Waiting, waiting for you This single pane of the thinnest glass Rattles as happy people pass Waiting on nothing too exact We’re not meant to be I refuse to see That you’re chasing me around the room Maybe we’re something else So hard to tell Maybe we’re useless looking to be used Gotta come to There’s a voice coming from outside Should I look or cover up my eyes Waiting for someone to despise We’re not meant to be I refuse to see That you’re chasing me around the room Maybe we’re something else So hard to tell Maybe we’re useless looking to be used Gotta come to Gotta come to Gotta come to Gotta come to Gotta come to

That's Today 04:30
Overload, under fire I’m a joke, you’re a liar Mmm Mmm Corner light could be lower A place to hide, a prison goer Mmm Mmm Don’t be fooled, it’s all an appearance, a mask I’m afraid to look, I’m afraid to ask And that’s today That’s today That’s today That’s today Tiger tiger, little sheep Who am I kidding, don’t make a peep Mmm Mmm Did I miss the boat, I was lying upstairs Watching videos in my underwear And that’s today That’s today That’s today That’s today Mmm Mmm

about

“Waiting” really sits in that feeling of being alone that we’ve all experienced. It’s about wanting someone you can’t have and being haunted by their misleading presence. The verses of this song came so easily, as they are fairly observational, but I was stuck on the chorus for months. I kept coming back to it, and finally in the studio I realized what I wanted to say, and it was really cathartic. This song is about coming to a place of bitter-sweet acceptance and moving on.

Her new record "Let Me Sleep" features a fresh, stripped down sound.

“Through performing as a trio, I realized how much space there was left for my vocals,” Alyson explains. “I was always curious about where the middle ground was between having that full-band sound and maintaining the intimate feeling of watching a singer-songwriter.”
