about

"Days in Other Days", the first full length released by the dream-pop duo Nightlife has been dropped. This 10-track album has everything light and magical from the first two EPs, but is gently paired with more thoughtful lyricism and whimsy. The pouring vocals and deep bass create an atmosphere of mysticism, made tangible through the personableness of the song writing.

An album written over the course of more than a year, the story throughout is an eclectic compilation of loves lost and found. The result is a sort of synth based diary: personal and poetically candid.

about

Nightlife Ann Arbor, Michigan

Darin Rajabian and Caroline Myrick met at a Michigan house show in early 2010. They soon discovered a mutual infatuation with dream-life, dancing, and pop music, and began work on a new project to incorporate Caroline’s soft vocals with Darin’s classic euro-disco inspired tracks. The music evolved, and after months of work, they formed the sound of Nightlife. ... more

Track Name: Worried Bird
WORRIED BIRD

V1
I can imagine her too clearly/ the girl you held so dearly/ never thought I was that kind/
nothing to hide behind/ I reach reach reach/ you’re far far far away/ like an apple on a
branch/ and I shake shake shake

C
And I can’t tell you/ my heart flies just like a worried bird/ and you can’t find me/ and
that feeling only makes it worse/ and I can’t tell you/ my heart flies just like a worried
bird/ and if this falls through/ I might not find my way again

Stop, stop, stop looking away (repeat)

V2
I’m so afraid you’ll leave me/ that I’m convinced you will/ just once you’ve had your fill/
and it’s complicated/ knowing things will fail/ I can’t learn to be alone/ or on my own

C
And I can’t tell you/ my heart flies just like a worried bird/ and you can’t find me/ and
that feeling only makes it worse/ and I can’t tell you/ my heart flies just like a worried
bird/ and if this falls through/ I might not find my way again

Stop, stop, stop looking away (repeat)
Track Name: Too Young
TOO YOUNG

V1
All of the moments side by side/ and all the waiting/ I made a promise to be kind/ but
I betrayed it/ I tried to keep it to myself/ wanted to save it/ you always know when
something’s wrong/ and so I slipped away

C
Maybe it’s my selfishness/ or maybe I’m too young/ I always hold a little bit/ back with
all I’ve done/ so things fade away/ things fade away from me

V2
I always take what I can get/ and keep what’s staying/ instead of thinking of regrets/ and
your heart breaking/ I want to tell you what I’ve done/ but I’m afraid/ I’ve always been a
loaded gun/ and you got in the way

C
Maybe it’s my selfishness/ or maybe I’m too young/ I always hold a little bit/ back with
all I’ve done/ so things fade away/ things fade away from me
Track Name: Wax
WAX

V1
Glass and shell and coral and wax/ I keep too much of the past/ I just want to make it last/
somehow I keep going faster/ and all the little things/ I keep forgetting/ I thought I knew
myself/ but it turns out I don’t know

C
And so I take it slow/ and so I make time go backwards/ now it’s so much better though/
just have to tell myself no
(Repeat)

V2
Paper cuts that keep getting deeper/ I’ve become an afternoon sleeper/ make my life
inside the dream/ makes it seem so easy to keep it/ but if I’m holding on/ I’ll stay this
way too long/ I thought I knew myself/ but it turns out I don’t know

C
And so I take it slow/ and so I make time go backwards/ now it’s so much better though/
just have to tell myself no
(Repeat)

Bridge
After all I run around/ just trying to come back down and meet you
(Repeat)
After all I run around/ just trying to come back down and meet you, sore
(Repeat)

C
And so I take it slow/ and so I make time go backwards/ now it’s so much better though/
just have to tell myself no
(Repeat)
Track Name: Days In Other Days
DAYS IN OTHER DAYS

V1
I woke to sirens like loons/ bodies stuck to mine like glue/ he said he might visit soon/
but tells me/ he’s too afraid to leave home

C
And I know I’m wasting time away/ living all my days in other days/ I know I’m wasting
time away/ living all my days in other days
(Repeat)

V2
I sit/ separate my dreams/ ship hulls/ liquid dark drifting/ they said we’re glad you
haven’t changed/ in wreckage/ everything’s the same

C
And I know I’m wasting time away/ living all my days in other days/ I know I’m wasting
time away/ living all my days in other days
(Repeat)
Track Name: Cut It Up
CUT IT UP

V1
I never hold out, or let doubt/ stop me from feeling this way/ but maybe this time I should
try/ cause I don’t know how long you will stay/ you swore you’d be true, me and you/ but
sometimes the heart can’t lie/ and I stayed awake for a night/ fearing what I would find

C
Cut it up, it’s all the same/ cut it up or break it/ I’m just another heart for you to play with
(Repeat)

V2
Sometimes I can’t find where my mind is/ and I wander around for a while/ you made
me believe that you wouldn’t leave/ that your love was a thing that was mine/ but I
understand that I can’t/ tell you which way you should feel/ you don’t have to decide,
take your time/ just know that it’s something that’s real

C
Cut it up, it’s all the same/ cut it up or break it/ I’m just another heart for you to play with
(Repeat)
Track Name: Losing Touch
LOSING TOUCH

V1
Do you really think her childish ways will keep you fine/ do you really think her poetry
compares to mine/ I’m not in love with you but you and I know I wasn’t cruel/ I always
tried to stand by/ even though you’re left behind

C
I’ve never known the heartache you have/ and maybe I’m asking too much/ but when I
think back on what we had/ I can’t imagine losing touch

V2
I remember when you said I was your only friend/ we were so young then, I can’t believe
how long it’s been/ I know how you’re losing/ I know you want to remove me/ so I’ll just
watch you slowly forget

C
I’ve never known the heartache you have/ and maybe I’m asking too much/ but when I
think back on what we had/ I can’t imagine losing touch
Track Name: Locked And Loaded
LOCKED AND LOADED

V1
Maybe I’m not in love/ maybe I’m just lonely/ If only I could know for sure/ when it’s
late at night/ and it’s you my body’s holding/ it’s then I think that I could understand

C
Don’t want to fight/ don’t want to fight it/ you keep me on my toes/ and it won’t do/ do to
deny it/ you keep me locked and loaded
(Repeat)

V2
Covered up my flaws/ and I tried to make it simple/ but all it did was make me lose my
mind/ opened up your world/ and you let me see your secrets/ and now I’m left digging
for more to find

C
Don’t want to fight/ don’t want to fight it/ you keep me on my toes/ and it won’t do/ do to
deny it/ you keep me locked and loaded
(Repeat)

V3
Loneliness creeps up/ and I get so damn distracted/ and act like I’m the only one who
cares/ I’ve got so much more/ and I swear I’ll show it to you/ just wait until my feet are
on the floor

C
Don’t want to fight/ don’t want to fight it/ you keep me on my toes/ and it won’t do/ do to
deny it/ you keep me locked and loaded
(Repeat)
Track Name: Sugar
SUGAR

V1
Sugar when we’re waking up/ it’s like I’m looking at a four-leaf clover/ kind of funny
how we found each other/ from the distance we were running over/ I know, I know that
we’re still new/ but don’t think that I’ll get used to you

C
Breaking, feel the blood in my skin/ what I remember in the dark/ and now these secrets/
are something to hold on to/ no I won’t let this fall apart

V2
Somewhere on a pull-out couch in Chesaning/ you said you loved me/ had to keep my
heart from falling out/ and lying there on the sheets beside me/ and though the months are
racing by/ they don’t have a hold on you and I

C
Breaking, feel the blood in my skin/ what I remember in the dark/ and now these secrets/
are something to hold on to/ no I won’t let this fall apart
Track Name: The Only Good Thing
THE ONLY GOOD THING

V1
In the dark I try to find you/ but all alone it’s hard to see/ keep and looking, words behind
you/ but don’t turn back, it’s only me

C
I tell myself to stop/ and I tell myself stop worrying/ or you’ll lose the only good thing
that you’ve got/ and you keep standing up/ sit back down, stop hurrying/ but maybe you
still want love on the rocks

V2
When the distances get further/ when an hour is a day/ I dig the holes a little deeper/ I
stop knowing what to say

C
I tell myself to stop/ and I tell myself stop worrying/ or you’ll lose the only good thing
that you’ve got/ and you keep standing up/ sit back down, stop hurrying/ but maybe you
still want love on the rocks

V3
I can’t hide out from this much longer/ because some fears never go away
Track Name: Wonder
WONDER

V1
Colors fading, disengaging, all I wanted was to hold/ I see you changing, rearranging, the
winter out an open door/ and when you welcome me back/ I plan on staying the same/
forget the power that I hold

C
I had a dream that I lost you but you were awake and I had to take your place/ what this
selfishness cost you/ down in the basement, searching for something like me/ and now I
wonder what it really means for you to be alone/ yes I wonder what it really means for
you to be alone

V2
The weekend’s waiting, you try to save me, think that I’ve fallen from the light/ pretend
you’re thinking, care that I’m sinking, until I’ve gone out of your sight/ and I’ve lost
something again/ the water stays in the lake/ and you’re left drowning on the shore

C
I had a dream that I lost you but you were awake and I had to take your place/ what this
selfishness cost you/ down in the basement, searching for something like me/ and now I
wonder what it really means for you to be alone/ yes I wonder what it really means for
you to be alone
