Chanta Darra Chuong I saw a live session of Peru? and instantly fell in love. I fell harder when I heard Cal Jensen. What seemed like a shitty week fuckin' turned around as soon as I heard this song. Favorite track: Cal Jensen.

Track Name: Colin Phils - Cal Jensen
I’m living on a boat and I’m fine. I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, yeah I’m fine…
And I can see everything from here, everything from here…
And I’m so obviously stuck right here
watching the clouds appear
sinking in all my fear.
Sun hits the water here.
Tackle bait and cheer.
Nautical pioneer.
Brought back a souvenir.
And I don’t quite have my sea legs under me…
Track Name: Colin Phils - Chappie
I’m losing teeth,
I'm crumbling,
I'm shedding,
I’m scared of everything

Track Name: Colin Phils - Even Just to Speak a Word
Funny how to think you taught me how to love what I used to hate.
Pulling teeth to put the work to try so hard, I only imitate.
Hurts to think I’ll never get the chance to show you what I’ve learned.

Or even just to speak a word.

I sometimes think it’s all I’ve come to love.

Your love taught me how to love. Someday I might pick up the horn again. Thank God I’ll always think of you.

But even just to speak a word.
