about

A little EP about all of the situations we find ourselves in with regard to love. Sometimes we're looking for it, sometimes we're in it, and often we are destroying it or recovering from it. As the first song suggests, love is a fucked up mess.

released January 22, 2014

As usual, I wrote, performed, and recorded/mixed every second of this whole mess.

about

Peter Fedofsky Seattle, Washington

Well, I'm in love with The Beatles, Brian Wilson, Nilsson, early Bee Gees, oh, I love love solo McCartney and The Zombies and etc. I record in my house and don't pay attention to having awesome gear or making everything picture perfect. I just want it to be 1965 again, so no need to get hyper about using the latest doo-dad or production flim-flam.

Let's enjoy silly pop music together, shall we?

Track Name: Love is a Fucked Up Mess
I'm in love with love but love's a fucked up mess
Wrapped up in broken heart strings
It seems that every time I try to make a move
I've got so much to lose it confuses things

Oh, my darling, hearts and minds can change like the weather
Oh, my darling, though we'll never end up together

I'm in love with love but love's a fucked up mess
Tied up in strands of memory
It seems a stolen moment 'tween a couple of fools
Can set them off indefinitely


Oh, my darling, hearts and minds can change like the weather
Oh, my darling, though we'll never end up together

But once in a while when the morning sun hits her hair
A smile lights up her face at something I've said
Oh, no, I didn't plan on this

I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I think I'm in love
I know I'm in love
Track Name: Oh, Caroline
Oh Caroline when you were mine I was an awful man
I ran around this town without a care for you at all
Oh Caroline when you were mine I slept around this place
I didn't hide my face but now I feel I ought to

Oh Caroline I'm so sorry
for all the things I did to hurt you
I'd take them back again
If we could still be friends, my darling

Oh Caroline when you were mine I couldn't control myself
I was a little man, I know you understand I really loved you
Oh Caroline when you were mine I did some awful things
I made a mess it seems and in the end you left me

Oh Caroline I'm so sorry
for all the things I did to hurt you
I'd take them back again
If we could still be friends, my darling

At least I keep telling myself
that we could work this out
it doesn't have to end like this

Oh Caroline I'm so sorry
for all the things I did to hurt you
I'd take them back again
If we could just be friends, my darling

Oh Caroline another year has gone and I'm without you
I swear I'm older now I'm even wiser somehow and I want you
Oh Caroline it's wintertime my bones are lonely
I'll make it up to you it's all I've got to do to show I love you

Oh Caroline I'm so sorry
for all the things I did to hurt you
I'd take them back again
If we could still be friends
I'd take them back again
If we could just be friends, my darling
Track Name: Desire
I said I seem to remember what love feels like
to be burning away one hour at a time
but unable to give in to my desire
for the fear that I would mess the whole thing up
so I hang in the back and make a fool of myself
just hoping to catch your attention for another smile
or the feeling of having you drag your fingers across my back

oh oh oh oh

I'm hoping that your daddy isn't treating you right
I'm hoping he makes you miserable
that you come runnin to me in a desperate moment
to see that I've been here all along
At the edges of our conversations
I've been telling you just as much for so many years
I'm beginning to think that you
have to know something by now

oh oh oh oh

'cause you ain't stopping me from carrying on
with my playful ways of making a fool of myself
over and over for you baby

I rather enjoy the way that you're letting me into your life
even though you'd be doing me wrong if you're setting me up
for the fall that we know is coming
yes we know it's coming

oh oh oh oh

I continue to let you make a mess of my life
unable to give in to my desires
unable to give up the notion that I should let you go
all I can do is tip my heart at you
over and over and over
knowing that sooner or later there's a chance
that you'll end up at my door in the middle of a lonely night

oh oh oh oh

'cause you ain't stopping me from carrying on
with my playful ways of making a fool of myself
over and over for you baby

I rather enjoy the way that you're letting me into your life
even though you're doing me wrong if you're setting me up
for the fall that we know is coming
yes we know it's coming

If you ever want to pack it all in
why don't you stop on over we can play house baby
I know where to begin

Where we're gonna be after all of this
hell, it's just another week of holding on
with my heart in my hands and my head out the window
and my fierce desire for you - my fierce desire for you

oh oh oh oh


'cause you ain't stopping me from carrying on
with my playful ways of making a fool of myself
over and over for you baby

I rather enjoy the way that you're letting me into your life
even though you'd be doing me wrong if you're setting me up
for the fall that we know is coming
yes we know it's coming
Track Name: Isolation
Isolation's a familiar friend
who tells me jokes and plays tricks on me
He pours me drinks and laughs when I make for the door

Isolation invites himself to dinner
Insists on coming - doesn't make polite conversation
Overstays out of habit when I shoo him away

One step back for every one forward
Seems like I'll never be rid of him
Every time I kick him out
He turns up when I least expect

Isolation is a strange bedfellow
willing to stay the night - keeping me up for hours
Stealing covers just to show that he's still there

Isolation is entwined with my voice
playing counterpoint to my melody
harmonies come and go until I'm singing alone
harmonies come and go until I'm singing alone
Track Name: Autumn Leaves
I'm sorry baby but I was feeling invisible
When Mona walked into to the kitchen
asking 'bout how I've been

One thing led to another - her hand brushed against my hand
Yeah, I know she's got her man
but he was treating her cruel, you see

Simple words exchanged - we were meeting on Tuesday
Autumn leaves blew by
all the trees were dying just like our love

Now, I'm packing a suitcase, looking for a place to live
that doesn't involve you screaming
every time I enter a room

If you cared that much about me when we were lovers it would change all this
but it's too late for starting over
I've got my bags packed, I've got my new life

Simple words exchanged - we would meet on Tuesdays
Watching Fall turn into Winter time
All the trees were dead just like our love

Maybe the new lives we have are not what we thought they would be
Maybe the new loves we have are not quite as good as they seem
But the summer leaves change and fall off to make way for the Winter time
It's the same in this heart of mine

I'm sorry baby but the feeling was mutual
You probably won't admit it
there goes your selfish pride

One thing led to another- my heart demanded that I make a change
I was useless to stop it from changing
it said to leave you behind

Simple choice to make - like the leaves in Autumn
They have to fall away for the new ones to take their place
Track Name: Dream On, Baby
Maybe if I go to bed and dream tonight
Maybe if I close my eyes real tight
Maybe I'll wake in the morning light
and you'll be next to me

Maybe if I wish upon that star
Maybe if my luck can reach that far
It'll find you wherever you are
And you'll be next to me

I don't know the rules of this game
but I'm probably breaking every one
So I'll dream on, baby, dream on

I don't know how I can explain
what has been going on
So I'll dream on, baby, dream on

Maybe it'll be a passionate night
you and your man'll be curled up tight
Maybe something won't feel so right
you should be next to me

Maybe a letter arrived at your door
Maybe you knew what I was looking for
Maybe I shoulda said so much more
than I did today

I don't know the rules of this game
but I'm probably breaking every one
So I'll dream on, baby, dream on

I don't know how I can explain
what has been going on
So I'll dream on, baby, dream on

And in the morning I wake alone
To an empty house that doesn't feel like home
I can have somebody lying next to me
But it doesn't feel right
After dreams of you all night
So I'll close my eyes again
So I'll have a chance again
To dream on, baby, dream on

Maybe if I wait long enough
Maybe if I bide my time some more
Maybe I'll hear a knock at my door
and you'll be next to me

Maybe I'll be the lonely one
living in a world without you
Maybe that's how it has to be
you're not next to me

I don't know the rules of this game
but I'm probably breaking every one
So I'll dream on, baby, dream on

I don't know how I can explain
what has been going on
So I'll dream on, baby, dream on
