about

Like most of our songs, this one comes from my real life, from the realization that as cosmic and powerful as a love can be, it cannot exist and breathe without integration into each others lives.

Peripheral People

And then it came to me last night,
when I was on the phone with you,
In your life......
I exist peripherally

Like a bolt straight to my brain
and then I knew
In your life......
I exist peripherally

Standing out in the background
It's a guest starring role
Everyone in the crowd can see
You're not coming back home with me

Where, are the peripheral people?
Where, are the peripheral people?

the peripheral people
the peripheral people
the peripheral people

And you said to me last night,
when I was on the phone with you,
In your life......
I exist emotionally

But in my mind,
That's just telling me you knew
That in your life......
I exist peripherally

Standing out in the background
It's a guest starring role
Everyone in the crowd can see
You're not coming home with me

Where, are the peripheral people?
Where, are the peripheral people?

the peripheral people
the peripheral people
the peripheral people

the peripheral people
the peripheral people
the peripheral people

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.
