Hotel Lights

Ben Folds Five’s drummer, Darren Jessee, who also wrote the exquisite Sky High , has his own project called Hotel Lights. If charming little melodic songs are your thing (and they should be!)- then look no further. Here are a couple of little gems:

Miles Behind Me

Play

Lyrics

Fading out of sight into the back of your mind
All this water under the bridge everything comes sneaking back
And we didn’t talk after that

[Chorus]
Nobody saw you fall
Nobody saw you fall
Nobody saw you fall miles behind me

Things that we worried about then when patience had run thin
Laughed when we wanted to hide on different sides of the line
We went to the end of the night

[Chorus]

Familiar roads unrecognizable turns seem to be dead ends
In tiny rooms out of view everything’s born again and this time you’re gonna win
At least that’s what I tell myself

[Chorus]

Nobody saw you fall
Nobody saw you fall and I don’t care it’s all miles behind me.

You Come And I Go

Lyrics

I know you will
Like everything else
It comes and goes
You’re young
And full of everything good
And I can’t be wrong

You come and I go
You come and I go
You come and I go along

Pink hair for a blue girl
Anythings funny when you’re alone
But hey we can leave and run out of money
It’s cool let’s go

You come and I go
You come and I go
You come and I go along

Don’t you want happiness
At least as much as anybody else
Up on your toes
Who was the fool that told you I won’t let go
