lyrics

Sunday evening, I must be leaving
For a place where I don't want to be
No, I can't stay, I have to go far away
But I wish you'd come there with me
'Cause this is my last Sunday evening
This is my last Sunday night
This is ray last Monday morning
I have to leave to catch my flight
This is my last throat contraction
This is my last time tonight
This is the last time I'll see you
Send me a postcard if you like
Monday morning will soon be dawning
And I won't care what Tuesday brings
I'll watch the steam rise from my creamed coffee
Fatty bacon with doughnut rings
Sunday night
It don't feel right
I'm not gonna feel you here
And you know I won't know you're near
And I wish I could live this evening
For a few years, an hour more
But it's midnight, I hope you're feeling alright
I won't see you or know where you are

about

Douglas Chay Baltimore, Maryland

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
