about

Sometimes you need to step back if there's going to be anything left to save. Sometimes fate isn't enough.

Dissolving

We're slowly dissolving da da da...
maybe we should pull back and try to heal
If we survive..
we can always come back and start again.

Its slowly evolving da da da...
into something way above my head
I need to be free
I can't be contained
I won't slowly boil

But you say it's okay
You believe in fate,
good things if you wait

if its meant to be we'll find
a meeting of the minds
no panic really needed
no urgency applied

I don't believe in fate da da da...
I believe in history da da da...
I believe in chances
limited chances
and then regret
baby and then regret (x3)

(solo)

We're slowly dissolving da da da...
maybe we should pull back and try to heal
If we survive..
we can always come back and start again.

But you say it's okay
You believe in fate,
good things if you wait

if its meant to be we'll find
a meeting of the minds
no panic really needed
no urgency applied
urgency applied...

I don't believe in fate da da da...
I believe in history da da da...
I believe in chances
limited chances
and then regret
baby and then regret (x4)

about

The Heartsleeves Boston, Massachusetts

Neo Eclectic, Soul Reflected, Sounds From Real Life!

Born in the glory and pageant of the noble working cities of Boise, Cleveland, Schenectady, Boston and Syracuse, "The Heartsleeves" is the voice of the no frills sincerity of real world American life.

We write our songs live, and refine them into a melancholy powder of sweet painful regret and sprinkle it on hearty soul pop.
