Acoustic duet written by Emily Davis featuring Greg Gonzalez. Recorded live at around 2 AM in some random hallway at the University of Texas at El Paso.


How can I let you down easy?
What kind of angle could I take
That would only cause the smallest of fractures
And not a full on heart break?

What kind of love leaves in this way?
How can I trust anything that you say?
'Cause you said forever and so I believed.
Now I can't believe in anything.

How can I keep you and lose you?
I don't mean to toss you away.
I just want to love you without having to love you
I hope you can take that okay.

What kind of love builds a beach house
And lets the tides tear it away?
And what good is a promise
If you refuse to keep it?
Bury all your oaths with me.

Let my hands wander no more
Let my eyes not try to see
The future I wanted so dearly
Bury all your oaths with me.


released July 17, 2012
Featuring guest Vocals from Gregory Gonzalez from Cigarettes After Sex.
