Can I come to you?
Can I talk to you?
Will you help me when I need one like you?

I don't know where I'm going
I want to do it now
I don't know who I'm talking to
But it's you somehow

So help me and take me
And make me into you
And take me so closely
And let me be with you

Let me be with you in the morning
Let me be with you all day
I don't know how it's working
But things should work out this way

Cause I love you and I want to
Be a part of you

I want to feel you in my brain
And I want you to love me until I go insane
And I want to put my hand on you
And I want to feel it and I want to move it
Around and around

I want to feel you with me right now and all over time
I want to feel you in me right now with my mind
I want to feel you so close, so warm, so close in my brain
I want you, want to be with you so I can live

Oh yeah, oh yeah
We can be who we are
Oh yeah, oh yeah
We can be like a pretty star
In the sky, beyond the clouds
Beyond the sun, behind the sky
Beyond the Dome
Beneath the words and on the curve
Below the blue and under you
And everywhere that you'd think to stare
And no one looks cause they're everywhere
And everyone knows but no one says a word

Cause I just don't know so I can't tell you who I am
Cause child, I just don't know who I am
But I so much want to know
And I never want to hurt you
So please don't ever want to hurt me
Cause I saw you and I need you
Just like I said I never needed anyone
In the way that I need you

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
