about

this one's a bit of a jazzy experiment, i guess! or an elevator music experiment, depending on what kind of person you might be. i've had a primitive version of this chord progression kicking around since early 2018, and one day i decided i would finish it up and write a song around it. so i did. we've been playing this song live quite a bit and the people really seem to enjoy it. that makes me happy! this song is about nothing more than a tasty pastry to keep in your fridge. if you've never had a good ol' cold chocolate eclair, you should try it! they're amazing!

lyrics

chocolate eclair
my old brain sees you everywhere
i know you're not there
but i can't help but stare
when i see you in my mind

sugar and spice
i related you with everything nice
but who am i kidding
the idea's not fitting
and reality escapes my eyes

i don't know what to do
moving backwards is all i know
all this time i've spent wasting
for things that could never show

it's out of love i keep my distance
someday we'll both find what the truth is

i remember your smile
i remember laying down for a while
but the past is gone now
the present is here
and the future's more our style

chocolate eclair
it's hard to believe you ever cared
it's said and done now
you'll move on somehow
and i will see you
i will see you
i'll see you in my dreams
