I’m a little scared to get to where I’m meant to go Little unprepared I’m just pretending That I know how it feels To be killin’ it Cuz we’re all just trying to look real cool We’re all just getting half way through We’re all getting wasted in the afternoon On Sundays But we’re all just trying to be the one With the fancy apartment, son of a gun Look back one day And say, “I still had fun” Try to wake up early every day to get shit done Workin’ hard is easy, but it’s tough To get exactly what you want But I’ll never stop Cuz we’re all just trying to look real cool We’re all just getting half way through We’re all getting wasted in the afternoon On Sundays But we’re all just trying to be the one With the fancy apartment, son of a gun Look back one day And say, “I still had fun” Oooh…

This picture keeps getting blurry Maybe it’s the booze or all the bad that’s on the news at night and I’m trying every day To figure shit out But I’m still a little lost on where to start I remember thinking when I was a kid I’d be a TV star Chasing aliens with four of my best friends But now I think That I’ll just be traveling around Playing music to a crowd of no one And it could be Lonely and beautiful On that empty road This picture keeps getting blurry Drifting in and out of view like giant red balloons I remember when you looked at me and said “Can we talk about the demons in my body spreading all around” I used to believe when I was young I could fix anything Take your aching heart and tie it with a string But now I think That I’ll just be traveling around Playing music to a crowd of no one And it could be Lonely and beautiful On that empty road

Falling 04:26
When I hear your voice across the line Honey it gets me every time Whether I’m feeling big or small You are the one I wanna call Under the silver winter sky When every star fades out to die Paper cups and violet wine Beautiful how your hand fits mine Darling, won’t you hold me in your arms because I’m falling, falling, falling Never, will we be too far away because I’m taking you with me And even after everything You are the one who makes me sing I’ll follow you till the end of time Cuz I am yours and you are mine Darling, won’t you hold me in your arms because I’m falling, falling, falling Never, will we be too far away because I’m taking you with me in love, ooh In love Maybe there’s something else for me But if there is I don’t wanna see Cuz honey, you’re the one I choose You for me and me for you Darling, won’t you hold me in your arms because I’m falling, falling, falling Never, will we be too far away because I’m taking you with me

about

With just three tracks, Beth // James second EP, "Falling" is their most personal compilation of songs yet. The duo takes listeners on a heartfelt journey, dealing with the disappointments, confusion, and struggles of the past year, all the while maintaining hope.

The EP was recorded in just a matter of days in September 2018 by Justin Douglas at King Electric Studios in Austin, Texas. The self-produced EP was recorded all to 2-inch tape with everyone in the same room, resulting in a very warm, unified sound, but “The main focus of our sound is always our two voices singing harmony together,” said Beth // James.
