I Hate You Just Kidding lyrics


I Hate You Just Kidding -- "Untitled" EP
available to purchase on our website, ihateyoujustkidding.com,
or iTunes/Amazon/most of your favorite online stores!


"My Little Dove"

crows are crying
dogs won't give up
and i keep trying
but i can't keep up
coast is clear
why aren't my thoughts
and then through the chatter
there's a gentle song
o little dove, i can barely hear you
won't you come more near
you fill my ears with the songs i love
they fill the air with ugly sounds
but they can never drown out
the song of my little dove


"Sun-Dried Tomatoes"

my heart is aching
for a new sight to see
my heart is aching
for a new song to sing
my heart is aching
for this dry spell to end
my heart is aching
for the music to begin
i am with you
as we watch the cars go by
i am with you
morning, noon and night
i am with you
as we're carried out to sea
i am with you
wherever you may be
we are going
with new shoes on our feet
we are going
to fill this cavity
we are going
to mend these broken bones
we are going
to find ourselves a home



useless numbers and letters crowd my brain
i've been waiting for you to call my name
in a voice so quiet, a voice so low
say it slowly... no one has to know
baby's crying to you on the phone
i've been dying to get you alone
take it easy, take it slow
my desire lies between the known and the Unknown


"My Hands / My Fate"

o my hands,
do they betray my fate?
and though i am awake,
do i dream?



i'm alright... i'm alright
i've been walking my whole life
want to lay my head and sleep
but i keep going, i keep going
i can't speak, i can't breath
i can't see what's in front of me
i'm walking backwards in my dreams
and i keep going... i keep going
with no you to hold...
but i keep going... i keep going... i keep going
i'm alright... i'm alright... i'm alright...
