lyrics

sleep long, sleep hard
you wake I’m gonna break your heart

afraid I’ll waste your time
afraid I’ll waste your youth

I want a short, short story to stay with me all my life
not a book so heavy that I lay it down to die
you’ll be the one that I remember,
baby please don’t cry
while you’re still mine

be cool, my love
you know you smile in your sleep
be cool, my love
the best of everything I’ve seen

be cool, my love
and bit by bit we’ll drift away
be cool, my love
can’t count the hours in these days

so I’ll try, try harder to remember it’s the time
because we’ll both be better off untethered while we’re in our prime
one that I remember, baby please don’t cry
you’re not mine.

got nothing but my time, got nothing but my youth
got nothing but my time, got nothing but you.

sleep long, sleep hard
you wake I’m gonna break your heart

you loved me well
please don’t hate me now.

about

small million Portland, Oregon

Portland duo Small Million (Ryan Linder & Malachi Graham) met on the dance floor and got busy polishing their moody, lyrical synth pop. Rich, textured tracks with soaring melodies; wistful and cautiously optimistic.
