about

The new EP! Songs written with love for all of you! It's been a pretty crazy year, but a big step in my life for music. Please enjoy these songs I have created for all of you with all I have in my heart. And to those who enjoy my music, I am never going to stop. I'll always have more and I will always be filled with excitement whenever there's a new song or album I'm about to share with all of you!

And, there is even super cool CDs I have hand-burned and printed with the help of my awesome dad, Arne!

God bless all of you, and thank you for listening.

-Leif

credits

released February 5, 2017

Recorded by Leif Arneson from November 2016 - January 2017 in his house and in other places. Mixed and mastered by Leif in a whole bunch of places (the car, in bed, the living room, the sidewalk etc.)



"My Eyes On You" is a song that Leif has re-recorded because it was written for the "Airliner EP" in March 2016 and never made it onto the "Airliner EP" because it was intended to be recorded live on Leif's back deck, but the weather was bad.

All other songs were written in the process of 4-5 months and composed by Leif.

Track Name: My Eyes On You
Verse 1:

Voices in my head,
Pure restoration, see how high I can get,
From here to sidney, from here to sidney,
There's rapid currents, and hell do they get high,

Pre-Chorus:

So my honey don't fall away,
When you get a place to stay,
When you get a ride to home,
I'll keep you safe alone,

Chorus:
My eyes on you, from here to sidney,
My eyes on you, from here to sidney,
My eyes on you, from here to sidney,

My eyes on you,

(Guitar Strumming)

(Song ends)
Track Name: Midlands
Verse 1:

Our plane landed in Toronto,
We never saw the beautiful city,
Like the others did,
When they stumbled around,

Grandma says I'm getting taller,
I never found the time to call her,
I take a step further in the Midlands
I'm under the gun,

People around me are low-ballers,
Impatient midnight parking-stallers,
I take a step further in the Midlands
I'm under the gun,

Pre Chorus:

Well it's 2AM in the morning,
Sirens bleed the soundscape of the city,
Telling me to close my eyes,
Like sunlight that never had a sky,

I'm in the back of a Volkswagen,
I can barely sit and keep my legs in,
Take the taxi to the hotel,
I think it's 6pm but I can't tell,

Chorus:

I've been having helpless, lifeless dreams,
I've never dealt with this type of me,
Will you keep my life here and see,
As the Midlands strike carefully,
As the Midlands strike carefully,


Verse 2:

Grandma says I'm getting taller,
I never found the time to call her,
I take a step further in the Midlands
I'm under the gun,

Grandma says I'm getting taller,
I never found the time to call her,
I take a step further in the Midlands
I'm under the gun,

Outro:

Take me away, take me away,
If I am here to stay, please take me away,

Oh, ooh oohooooh,
Oh, ooh oo ooh,

End:

Eh, eeh,
Take me away,
To the midlands,

Track Name: Please Do (Demo)
Hello my friend,
it's been a long long while,
Since the time we met and had a few,
Since we sang our hearts out in the valley view,

Hello my friend,
Let's push on a mile,
To see the setting sun,
To see life when it's done,

Chorus,
Please take me away to a place I can hide,
To a place all my worries will become blind,
And when all of this turns over,
We'll just live in our Land Rover,
And stumble on the fact that we're here,
Please do,

Hello my friend,
Let's pull out the file,
Of the music we made,
When we sat and we prayed,

Hello my friend,
Let's sort through this pile,
Of mix tapes and demo reels,
That show us how we really feel,

Chorus;
Please take me away to a place I can hide,
To a place all my worries will become blind,
And when all of this turns over,
We'll just live in our Land Rover,
And stumble on the fact that we're here,
Please do,

Please look at me now,
Please look how I grew,
Please do, please just only now,
Please, now I am new to this too,

Please do.
Track Name: Trying Not To Be Ahead Of What I Know
Every day it gets to me, I hold my self and plead,
I regret the second phase, I can't stay right in this maze,

Tell me fear won't go away,
Make me hear the subtle fade,
Are we near our state of decay
Shall we peer into today,

Trying to be ahead, I'm just too far behind,
All these little seasons, they just do not see the time,
I look at my watch every single day,
Never had a chance, screwed up the same,

Sidney won't you bring my thoughts back,
Me and Sidney sitting by the sea,
Tell me I need some shade,
Why do I need your masquerade?

What I know doesn't matter when it comes to today,
I just walk around as I contemplate,
Do you figure out your figurines so you'll get paid,
Or do you settle in a gift shop just beside Swartz Bay,

Sidney won't you bring my thoughts back, Sidney won't you?
Sidney won't you bring my thoughts back, Sidney will you?

Trying not to be.... trying not to be.....
Track Name: Wait A Moment
You're one of those people,
That I never really could see close up,
From all the things I used to do,
You were always there for me,

If I was the one that told you what to do,
If I was the one that knew you right through you,
If you were ever there,
You would be with me for good,

Now this is a short song to tell you who I am,
And if you ever find my name or number,
Please come on over, come on over,
And we'll be there just sitting by an oak tree,

Looking for a treasure,
Looking for who we used to be,
Now save the moments who told us that we weren't,
Cause they were only seventeen,
Track Name: Second Street Ferry Docks
)


I just love seeing ferries,
When I walk from the sidewalk,
Cause I know you're there, you tell me that I'm not seeing things,
Cause it makes things wrong,

You tell me that I'm always teary,

And if you weren't there,
What would you have done?
I wasn't there,
So I couldn't see you hun,

Oh oh, was I walking down the street there?
Tell me that it's second street,
Ooooh-oooooh,


And you tell me there, when you tell me hi,
Second street gives you blues,
Let's go to a store before they're closed down,
But sorry honey I can't give you anytime to myself,

Ooooh oooh,

When you're walking down the street,
Tell me that the horses have enough hay to eat,
Because I'm no bluesman,
But I know you from heart,

If there's Maestro and Danny,
Will you be there to feed,
From here to sidney I'm looking over the waters,
Tell me what I'm supposed to do,

What I'm supposed to do,
What I'm supposed to do,
What I'm supposed to do,

(guitar playing)
