Your eyes are too big for your heart / Luna Tunes

  • Streaming + Download



    A combination deal! "Your eyes are too big" is a collection of songs on the theme of romantic love, recorded with my guitar in one take. If you download the album, you also get "Luna Tunes", a collection of three poems on the theme of romantic love, which I wrote a couple of years ago and have been editing and re-editing ever since. I hope you like them! The album art was made for "Luna Tunes". I drew it myself, except for the bottom part, which is from a mural I found in Buenos Aires.

Track Name: Black Cat
A black cat
Crosses your path.
And now there’s no turning, no
Giving it back
You better take care of it,
Yeah let your love in,
Like you at your most generous, or
Your most genuine.

And I know you and I could be.
And I know you and I could be.

Come back
To your old room.
Yeah, it still looks the same
With or without you.
And you can’t remember her,
But you haven’t forgot, no,
The sight of her changing,
The sight of you not.

And I know you and I could be.
And I know you and I could be.
Track Name: Too cool, too care
Too cool
To care.
When I needed you most you
Weren’t there.

Too small
Inside.
Why did your big heart have to
Go and die?

Cuz every time you’re making him laugh,
you know you’re making me cry.

You were
A queen.
Well not quite yet. I guess you were still
Waiting.

I was
A frog.
And when we kissed I think I nearly fell
Off my log.

Cuz every time that I get sad I just go for a jog.
But this is hurting me so bad I’ll have to walk it off.

Too much
To say.
Well that’s ok I’ll just
Regret it anyway.

Too much
To say.
Well that’s ok I think I’ve
Said it anyway.
Track Name: Will you come?
In your house on
A Sunday morning.
Will you call me back?

In your mouth on
A sweaty evening.
Will you come
To my house
In the light
Of day?

If you took off
That look of dreading,
I would love you back.

If we took on
This one night wedding,
Would you come
To my house
In the light
Of day?
Track Name: Recovery Song
I wanna talk to you.
I wanna talk to you.
I wanna talk to you because,
Well I guess,
I guess I sorta kinda miss you.

I want a hole in my head.
I want a hole in my head.
I want a hole in my head because,
Well I guess,
I guess I’m sorta still not whole yet.

How are you?
How are you?
How do you do?
But who am I to ask you?
Yeah, who am I to ask you?

I took a trip to the couch
To try and figure shit out.
There I laid down for an hour or ten,
And I found
When I woke up that you were still not around.

So I took a trip to the mall.
I saw a man collapse on the wall.
So I said, “Do you need a hand?”
But he said, “Not at all.
Sometimes you fall when you’re still learning to crawl.”

How are you?
How are you?
How do you do?
But who am I to ask you?
Yeah, who am I to miss you?

You heard me right, I’m moving on
To another kind of life.
No, I don’t know what it will be like,
But one can always hope, right?
Into every life a little rain must fall,
And you gotta hit the ground with it
Because if you don’t,
You’ll never realize what it was that
Brought the cloud upon your head.
Maybe it was something you said.

Think I’ll take a trip to the South.
See what they’ve been talking about.
No, I don’t think I’ll figure it out,
But you know and I know
Sometimes figuring out isn’t what the trip’s about.

I’ve got a hole in my heart.
I’ve got a hole in my heart.
But now I’m over the hardest part,
Cuz I know
That once you’re born you’re moving on from the start.
Track Name: Shellfish (Don't be)
I saw you walking away from me again.
It’s hard to leave beneath a thousand miles of ocean.
I’m trying to breathe but the waves keep falling,
The waves keep falling, the waves keep falling,
Down to the bottom of the deep blue sea.
Now you and me are tongue in cheek.

Cuz we can’t escape each other.
No, we can’t escape each other.

I caught you sneaking up on me again.
I turned around and I froze you with my color vision.
I’m starting to wish that we never met,
And we never let all our resin set,
Cuz we never meant anything we said,
But I still can’t get it out of my head.

Cuz we can’t escape each other.
No, we can’t escape each other.
And we can’t forget each other.
We’ll have to regret each other.
If love is a flame, I smothered it.
Now I’m hiding under my covers.

I can’t breathe
But I can’t leave.
And I can’t believe.
No, I can’t believe you.
