about

Este EP es el resultado de una grabación diametralmente opuesta a la de 'Square One', con más pausa, reflexión y detalle. Unos días de esfuerzo y diversión infinitas, de los que surgen estas canciones que creo que contribuyen a definir el sonido de St. Alex, que no es otra cosa que la propia indefinición dentro de unos cauces.

Gracias a mi nuevos amigos de La Casa con Ruedas, a Raquel, y a todos los que han apoyado, directa o indirectamente, este proyecto.

Track Name: Fingers Crossed
Cover the sky and send me to sleep
Using some airwaves and colours that you see

Let me stop to think about you
Why is your name in every street I walk through?

I shake my head to kick these memories
I wish it’d be much easier
Fingers crossed, the best is yet to come
We’ll make this hand in hand

Waving goodnight, I'm ready to dream
A terrible thing, a terrible thing I've become

Let me stop to think about you
Why is your name in every street I walk through?
Every street I walk through?
Every street I walk through?

I shake my head to kick these memories
I wish it’d be much easier
Fingers crossed, the best is yet to come
We’ll make this hand in hand
Track Name: Deep In The Woods
Rinse my hands in this river
I am scared, I see figures
That tell me how many lives I’m going to live

Water looks more like a bloodstream
Burning red, but it’s nothing
Compared to the colours of this killing moon above

Deep in the Woods, something awaits for me
Staring bright eyes, my life is compromised

Hush now, something’s breathing
Frozen, I can’t make a move
I’m stuck here, nobody’s ever coming to the rescue

Deep in the Woods, something awaits for me
Staring bright eyes, my life is compromised
Deep in the Woods, something awaits for me
Staring bright eyes, my life is compromised

The trees have eyes tonight

Deep in the Woods, something awaits for me
Staring bright eyes, my life is compromised
Deep in the Woods, something awaits for me
Staring bright eyes, my life is compromised
Track Name: Individuals
It’s a rainy morning but I don’t care
Luckily I have you sleeping in my bed
Stay under the blanket, I’ll go make some tea
Make sure there’s enough for you and me

No need to say a word, I’m pleased
To stay just like we’ve always been

Why don’t you come sit here? You are mine to keep
Help me choose a headline for this article I did
I could use an ice cream, let’s go take a walk
Having conversations we had before

Sleepy head, you’re like a cat
Oneiric queen, to hell and back

We are just individuals that chose to get together
Only time will tell if they stay like so forever

Looks like they will
Track Name: Where Is Your Gun
Ten years have passed
Since I left your there
With your eyes closed
And a pale, pale face

Your things are scattered
All across the family
Inside a box, in a dark place
Right where you spent this last decade

They say that you loved me the most
My spiritual guide, role model above
But one thing that haunts me, I need to know now
Could you please tell me
Where is your gun?

Your photographs
They make me ashamed
When you were my age
You were twice the man

Your things are scattered
All across the family
Inside a box, in a dark place
Right where you spent this last decade

They say that you loved me the most
My spiritual guide, role model above
But one thing that haunts me, I need to know now
Could you please tell me
Where is your gun?
