Now that I got you all alone I thought I had to let you know You never seem to let me feel my sadness Always holding me until I'm balanced Got me spinnin round in the right ways Give me a blood rush to the right place I give a soft shock to your sharp skin I shut it off so I could let you in Blinded by the moon Can't see no more Looking for a tune that captures you who I adore Built the beat soft and with no chords calling you up it's premature Enough was enough till I found more I couldn't keep up I couldn't give in I worked on my poses learned to talk imposing Grew nothing but roses cut off all of my hoes Gave you every inch of my soul Screamed your name out in the cold I did this for you but you still one of my woes Mista moon I'll take you and breathe you in Write your name till I'm out of pens seek you out till the skyline ends no limits, love, live it Motivated by lust Punctuated here by your trust You're always around it's never enough and I could come up to your place If you wasn't with the stars if I wasn't on the ground fucking round in bars If you didn't hold the world like you held me by the waist and I wasn't so sprung by your image on a lake but mista moon I'll take you and breathe you in write your name till I'm out of pens making me forget my friends

How We Sleep 03:55
It's all in the past and it's gonna last forever No future in losing yourself In what could be better How we sleep on the nights When we're not fucking up our cycles You want it i got it and flaunt it i'm a provider Ignoring you Like I got something to prove I hold onto the silence to reason with you and I might come thru In my zone still beat up and bruised I got my sights set to a tune I'd die to succeed & not waste my life on old fanfare This is how we sleep on the nights When we're not making love This is how I sleep on the nights when I'm not tryna fuck I take it you didn't think I ever would be so honest I take it you never thought I'd be one to keep a promise Walk into the water I only sleep in the ocean So hate or love it I point to you in the open I'd die to succeed & not waste my life living old fanfare This is how we sleep on the nights When we're not making love This is how I sleep on the nights when I'm not tryna fuck

Turn up this beat and let me breathe Not stopping till my enemies Are facedown without an option I fall in love climb out of it Then warp it to a song I spit To me it's still an empty promise Push me down I'm still coming for the throne That's why I got to bleed at every show Raise the dead so I'm not going home alone (Feel the pulse I still believe it in my bones) I'll try it if it feels right Killing brain cells to feel life I've been lost and lost for days Washing up in waaves I had given up on my soul Tasted earth spinnin on poles It's been a long time since we cut Look at all these songs that I wrote Now I burned up my throat Chasing smoke we've already blown Cuz I dance on glass tables to shatter your love We don't know how to unwind So fall back from us one time We got heaters made of only light (Glass tables made of only light) Is it real if it stole your life

It's only me pulling me down Calling it off while no's around All that I am is all that you see I wish there was somebody else in me I wish I was somebody else, someone pure with no ID Take me away from here Somewhere we can just disappear I'll be your morning high If you wanna be my bird and fly I mutiply when i'm on the stage Split apart, spill it on the page I think about you almost everyday Get high, throw it all away i wish you were coming over I think about this i'm bogus And if your name wasn't bowler Maybe sometimes i'd be sober Girl No take backs i'll shit on you I'm overfaded yeah it's true Think about it, this what i do I don't need a life just weed and brews Weed and brews weed and brews, I'm overfaded yeah it's true I thought there was no limit to what i could do I could ride the world, just asking you to Take me away from here Somewhere we can just disappear I'll be your morning high If you wanna be my bird and fly

I found my strain Caught the vibe Feeling so alive I was on the wings On the line Moving like a reverie You just mad cause your man was not ahead of me and you say I was the best well I better be See me now Turnin up to tune you out You bite my tongue i throw it down Call your friends i'll call the town what's a king without a crown What's my life with the sound Of you coming with the morning I can feel it going through you baby You're just a ghost Beating on the wind I hear your thoughts Picking up again Thought I left you all alone Thought these songs were gonna go I couldn't grasp at another straw Especially with words coming out my jaw It's like your name's written on my tongue but I'm not fucking witcha mood I'm done I know you could put it down like that but really who can't put it down like that I'm sick of singing the same old song Your inspiration is like ashes in my lungs I still remember how you walked like that The way your hips would turn the clocks right back The way you quivered at the tip of my tongue

I couldn’t stop him he’s at it again old dogs never change but I stay the same cause I’ve hit the bottle more than a couple of times and in a couple of lines I could tell you what you like I couldn’t stop him he just fell to the floor almost comatose maybe he was dosed I’ve hit the bottom I took it and ran I don’t need a plan especially after a couple of cans I was caught up in my circles everything was untrue I was feeling pretty lonely cause I wasn’t round you I didn’t mean to call you but my mind was gone too far into the records girl I was tryna catch the vibe I didn’t think about you when we was sleeping on couches and dreaming only of ounces who knew that we’d be about it I’d book a show you’d show up you and next to no one thought we’d really blow up turns out we blew up couldn’t handle the pressure or distance don’t make me guess it i’m missing you like a weapon at this boy it's just irreverent girl cause I was tryna catch the vibe I was tryna catch you

When I talk to you I feel it open up words locked to beats I couldn’t get enough you’re a monster too and baby I’m a beast I’m the worst you don’t want to catch me in my violence whats good witchu where you tryna be in the night alive or riding on a beat you could bring that force over to me watch it spin and take me home If I could kiss you just right where you stand maybe you’ll start loving me once again chasing our breath both your hands on my back only in time So tell me who you wanna be I’m finna make us multiply I’m tripping off the greenery This scene is really not my type

People In Your Life Are Seasons by A. Sarr

<<but also by anyone who was around at the time>>

I would say these songs were written in the Winter of 2015, but for me, that lasted all year round. What would happen if for a year you lived in only one season? Even though the people in your life kept moving in and out of it. It’s weird shit, being so in yourself when there are so many others that love you. You become blind to their affection and just kind of say fuck it and delve into yourself. Making this album definitely helped me climb out of that hole, realizing that worth and purpose and all of that came from everyone around you. So if you were one of those people in that exceptionally long season, thank you. <rose emoji>

Specific shout outs to my technical connoisseurs: Chris Atkins for making my voice shine. Jake Cheriff for editing this into the glistening jewel that it is. Russell Elliot for continuing to push this album to the best it could possibly be, and for being generally overworked and underpaid. Carolyn Girondo for being the only person I would trust fall with. Ellen Winter for choosing to sing my most personal song with me when everyone else was too scared to do so. Idris Perovic for bringing these songs to the stage. Tattoo Money for never letting me let go of the vision, and for being my big brother. Dyllan for the whisper in the winds that begins the whole thing. Tirman Kid for proving that real friends can come out of the internet. Anthony Cerretani for making this album a physical thing, and Sam Monaco for setting these words on the page. Stephen Davis, you a real one too bruv. And to anyone I forgot, you know how hard it is to do this shit right?

Also to everyone I love. My family for birthing and cultivating this monstrosity of a voice I have. Smoothie Tunes for bringing me into the best community this side of Twitter. Andy Nye for coaching and late night vape sessions. Salad Bowl for being the army everyone wish they had. Everyone past, present, and future who’s inspired these songs but have yet to name. Belleza, what else is there to say to you that you don’t already know?

A. Sarr is me, + all of you. Thank you.
