Dancing 01:41
Dancing like the answer to a question that I do not know the answer to but maybe you dance like the answer to an ever-changing question Orange sports car or religion I put 40 on pump 6 and I drive If you saw me you would probably die Dancing like the answer to an ever-changing question Whatever or nothing I cry more times a day than you did in 5 years You’ve bought more pairs of jeans than you ever shed tears
Tunnel 01:52
Ask questions when you wonder In the quick silence as we go under a bridge and the rain stops for just a second It can feel like a lifetime if I let it I’m having the time of my life each time that I look into your eyes You look back at me, we really see each other, the scenery closed off by a tunnel I’m pretending not to care that everything will go away, but it’s on my mind today You acquire a new item every time you feel like crying I used to keep it quiet, now I don’t mind it, I don’t feel like lying And baby I got hair now that’s never even heard of you


Frontwoman Greta Kline says of the Haunted Items project: “items themselves are harmless unless they are infused with some kind of energy. These items are haunted by fear, consumerism, commitment, love, loss, the list goes on…I had some of these songs stuck inside me, mostly because I wrote a lot of them for piano and didn’t know how to record them, even as demos. My friend Elia gifted me with 10 hours of recording time with Mark Yoshizumi, and this winter felt like the perfect opportunity to get these out of my system and haunt you with them instead. I have always been afraid of items being haunted, but when you think about it, every item is, right?”
