lyrics

I’ll survive as a child
All hungry and wild
Life overwhelming is life at the start
I’ll rise up in my youth
Seek personal truth
Fiction alone to fill up my heart

Soon I will wake in the morning and open my eyes
And say, "Oooh, summer day
The dawn of my life"
Soon I will drown in an evening of lovely black sky
And say, "Oooh, summer day
The dawn of my life"

Yes, I’m grinning again
Here with all of my friends
Grace without witness is death on the vine

Acting selfish for years
To be perfectly clear
Giddy with freedom and flush with my time

Soon I will wake in the morning and open my eyes
And say, "Oooh, summer day
The dawn of my life"
Soon I will drown in an evening of lovely black sky
And say, "Oooh, summer day
The dawn of my life"

about

Thin Lear New York, New York

“ …an enigmatic cross between Belle and Sebastian, Wilco, and Ben Folds…. a master of his craft… as tasteful as indie rock gets…pure, unmitigated emotion mixed with a love and a yearning.” -Earmilk

“Radically radiant. Thin Lear’s 70’s influenced rock is something that we clamor for. It sizzles with dexterity and palpable excitement.” -Comeherefloyd
