lyrics

It’s been a long time out on our own
Thinking that somehow we might, we might have got it wrong
I kept telling myself I would find my own way,
You were only there just to try and hold me back
Boy what a brat.

Do you remember piggy backs back home?
Tricky at the Mayan and breaking all your bones?
I’m sorry for every time I didn’t try in school.
I’m sorry for every time I ever lied to you.
Oh Alice, I promise I’ve stopped.
Oh Alice, I promise I’ve stopped.

It’s just a variation on a common thread
A dedication to love we can’t forget
Passed back through the start
Slipped into my broken heart
And will it carry us unto our dying bed
This secretariat that’s hanging overhead
Pulling up the boulevard
Right back at the start

And if we don’t make our mother proud
Whose gonna buy our second round?
I’ll do what I can
And by the way: I want to thank you all
For everything that I have and that I am.

about

St. Van Cortlandt & the 101 Brooklyn, New York

St. Van Cortlandt & the 101 was created by singer/songwriter Daniel Van Cortlandt as a vehicle to explore home-made instruments, atypical song structures, and unique lyrical ideas.

As the band's lineup gradually came together, the sound of St. Van Cortlandt & the 101 developed beyond concise songs draped in experimental sound design into more colorful, grandiose, improvisatory rock'n'roll.
