-- Lyrics -- Drink a lie, tranquilize Know it high, you’re always high Know it low, under the halo I show Give it all that you ask from the palm of my hand Know me deeply as I was once blessed Come a long way to find Gonna end up apart Change your mind, waste some time For the sake of my, me, mine Stay open, stay alive There is no sense, only life I will change, I will kill I will fuck, we will bleed Only know how it feels To be touched once inside Only fear, you know it all Just stepped foot in the hall Let it die in the fall Let it grow in the spring Give a chance, give a chance Give a glance to begin Don’t belong to anyone Never done, you go on Switch bulb of your sun When you can’t trigger fun Let it die in the fall Let it die when it calls Give a chance, give a chance Give a glance once for all There’s a gap in the middle And it’s too wide to jump across Ain’t no other way than climbing down And up again Ain’t no other way than climbing down And up again We come a long way to find We’re gonna end up apart We come a long way Way to find Way to find We’re gonna end up apart We’re gonna end up apart We’re gonna end up apart

No Love Go 04:02
-- Lyrics -- You, me, blowing in the wind, holding on a thread You knew I had seen it all around way before I said Hold it back, I’m beginning to think you’re too far ahead Please, please don’t get me wrong but I’m starting to be scared No, I can’t mend the pieces of your heart But I can tell ya, I would stay if, I was meant to Spend the only moment that we got Set fire to my body on the spot And I’m sure you understand That I, you know, I can’t pretend If there’s no love go, I leave One shot before I leave for good to the underground No promise that I will ever get there safe and sound Break, break my heart, make love to my soul, tell me what you found Please, please leave when I think we had enough and it’s bringing us down No, I can’t mend the pieces of your heart But I can tell ya, I would stay if, I was meant to Spend the only moment that we got Set fire to my body on the spot And I’m sure you understand That I, you know I can’t pretend If there’s no love go, I leave No Never gonna make it Break your heart, make love to your soul If there’s no love go, I leave I leave

Stay 03:36
-- Lyrics -- One day at the time You are everybody else but mine If we leave it behind We go again and we stand in the line And I’m missing the desert fun Yeah, what could we do to keep it forever? No, we’re not the only ones Wild spirits are looking young There’s a hole in my chest When I think of the times out west Lovin’ you for the best Whenever I wanted, no regrets And I’m missing the desert fun Yeah, what could we do to keep it together? No, we’re not the only ones Wild spirits are looking young You can’t save me You can’t bring me back From the way they raised me And every single lack And I’m missing the desert fun Yeah, what could we do to keep it together? No, we’re not the only ones Wild spirits are looking young And I’m missing the desert fun Yeah, what could we do to keep it together? No, we’re not the only ones Wild spirits are looking young

Now 03:15
-- Lyrics -- Now is too late Now is too great Moment’s already past We’re never gonna last In such a state Cannot see straight Bring me down to the fact that I will die alone Alone, alone, alone Alone, alone, alone Alone, alone, alone Alone Even if I refuse I can only think of the future Filling the space between I can only think of the future I can only think of the future Even if I refuse I can only Even if I refuse I can only Even if I refuse I can only think of the future Make the earth shake Till we both break Out of this state of hate Able to communicate We’ve got nothing To be complaining Either we start a debate Or we start living along Along, along, along Along, along, along Along, along, along Along Even if I refuse I can only think of the future Filling the space between I can only think of the future I can only think of the future

Ever Go On 02:48
-- Lyrics -- And I And I And I And I let you go just as you took me in And I can’t separate an end from where it begins Don’t know what the hell is going on Losing myself, I want the light I want the light to ever go on It’s a fire that refuses to be touched ‘Cause I like it so much It’s the romance I wish I had never met ‘Cause I never can forget It’s the moment I stop lying to myself ‘Cause I like it so much Losing myself, I want the light I want the light to ever go on And I know my heart is pounding way too fast And the souvenirs attached to it won’t last You can kill me know I’m ready to die Losing myself, I want the light I want the light to ever go on It’s a fire that refuses to be touched ‘Cause I like it so much It’s the romance I wish I had never met ‘Cause I never can forget It’s a fire that refuses to be touched ‘Cause I like it so much It’s the romance I wish I had never met ‘Cause I never can forget It’s the moment I stop lying to myself ‘Cause I like it so much Losing myself, I want the light to ever go on

Passageway 02:14
-- Lyrics -- So I can be the same as when the room is dark So nothing can refrain me along the way ‘Cause nothing compares to when I realize And get it while I can Not only once I’m dead

Sunday 03:22
-- Lyrics -- I’d love to see you cry on a Sunday afternoon A message from the sky announcing the full moon Maybe just to know that I am not the only one On the run I’d break you down to pieces, study every inch of you I’d draw the stars down on a map to show me what to do Oh, baby, just to know that I don’t love you more than you do Looking for you all night Thinking about you all day And I know there ain’t no other way

To The End 04:33
-- Lyrics -- I had to come all the way down here to know How much it meant to me but then I had to go Spending all my time inside my mind I’ve got to close my eyes so much it shines And today is the day I’m feeling it the most ‘Cause all that I treasure is on the other coast And I’m ready to leave everything I know behind The minute it started happening, it was a sign There’s nothing in the world I’d rather do, no Than settle in a state of love Man, I never wanted it so much I wanna be the father of your child Your wishes are my command, tie me to the floor I don’t even understand, I’m just faithful to the score I’m a slave that behaves in way that pleases you Ride me to the end, be my only friend Give me a child in the night Let it be born in the light Give me a child in the night Let it be born in the light Ride me to the end, be my only friend Ride me to the end, be my only friend

Hurricane 05:53
-- Lyrics -- It came from beneath It was lit up at night Banned from the day Showed a pretty sight Held down to stay Face to the ground And for years and years to come It stayed still Only shifted slowly towards the flame That lit up the glow Look into the eyes of the hurricane Take him by the horns, call him by his name You know it very well, for you it’s just the same No, you’ll never be ready to Look into the eyes of the hurricane Take him by the horns, call him by his name Never want to be ready to explain No, you’ll never be ready to be ashamed That day, that day, that day I got by the rainbow And I never wanted you to know Still to this day you don’t No, you don’t No, you don’t And I know where I’m from Scars are only to become And now they show And now they show, yeah And I knew where I was going Till my feet started lifting Off the ground, they went Off the ground, they went Look into the eyes of the hurricane Take him by the horns, call him by his name You know it very well for you it’s just the same No, you’ll never be ready to Look into the eyes of the hurricane Take him by the horns, call him by his name Never want to be ready to explain No, you’ll never be ready to be ashamed
10.
-- Lyrics -- I wanna die in a place like this Where the mind and the matter coexist And make best use of the time we have You can never take back the harm that’s been done But you can certainly think about the one that’s about to become From what I know, time spent in the depth Never goes to waste, no Don’t love me back ‘Cause nothing lasts Nothing returns There’s something real It’s not what you think, oh no It’s what you feel It’s all inside waiting for the day you let it shine And as long as you keep the faith You won’t let a single drop go to waste No, you won’t let a single drop go to waste

about

Not everything appears instantly. Jesse Mac Cormack's astonishing debut album arrives unhurried: a work of ardent, kaleidoscopic art-rock that is at once a dazzling premiere and the culmination of a meticulous five-year evolution. Over the course of three EPs - 2014's Music for the Soul, 2015's Crush and 2016's After the Glow - the Montreal native has gathered accolades and refined his vision, nourishing a songwriting that is lavish and undaunted. Whereas Jesse's earlier work drew heavily from folk and roots-rock - Les Inrocks called him the "new hero of modern folk" - the songs on Now are prismatic and forward-facing, recalling the adventurous pop of Tame Impala, Talk Talk and Perfume Genius.
