Grapevine 02:42
Crawling over the Grapevine Just as the sun was rising Chasing water up the siphon next to me Central Valley in my rearview The devil down and heaven above And you, somewhere there in LA And I don't know if you changed your number I don't know if you changed your name I don't know if he makes you happy But I know you're in this city just the same I got two tons of truck coming over this hill I'm driving on coffee and force of will With this dust on my jeans from a week of living free One night stand in my rearview Tasted a little like love Said she didn't like girls but somehow she liked me And I don’t know if you changed your number No I don’t know if you changed your name And I don’t know if he makes you happy But I know you’re in this city just the same Running down my last gallon of gas Everybody's waking up along the Tejon Pass Light coating everything in Technicolor sheen Double yellow line in my rearview Snaking back to where I’ve been And you somewhere there in LA You somewhere there in LA

Hey there you, it’s been a long time Hey there you, it’s been a long time Are you still wearing those clothes? Thinking that nobody knows? But me Hey there you, I haven’t forgotten You on the jukebox playing in my head You in the slideshow playing in my bed You round the corner of my next turn of thoughts Hey there you, it’s been a long time Hey there you, it’s been a minute Do you have all that you want? Did you win it? Or are you still dreaming of me And all that you wanted to be? Hey there you, it’s been a long time Hey there you, I want to know it If I left visible scars can you show it? Cause you left without leaving a trace Like I only imagined your face Hey there you, why do you haunt me? You on the jukebox playing in my head You in the slideshow playing in my bed You round the corner of my next turn of thoughts Hey there you it’s been a long time

Nicotine 02:37
Your love’s a cigarette Burning at the tip It tastes like smoke and fire Sliding through my lips And everything seems better But this feeling that I get It doesn’t mean I’m living It just means it hasn’t killed me yet I breathe you in and hold it Trying not to choke I know it isn’t good for me But I take another toke And everything seems better But this feeling that I get It doesn’t mean I’m living It just means it hasn’t killed me yet And you mark me With these shadows on my teeth Yeah you mark me But you give me sweet relief Yeah you mark me With these stains under my nails Every time I put you down I know I’m gonna fail Your love is nicotine Seeping through my skin Someday I’m gonna quit you But I couldn’t tell you when ​And everything seems better But this feeling that I get It doesn’t mean I’m living It just means it hasn’t killed me yet

Well she rolled in like the weather Well she came down like the rain Don’t know where from but she landed in this city Like the cat had dragged her in And she looked better dirty Than anyone raised clean Sitting on the broken steps of the cathedral Where an angel should’ve been Roll another dollar, take another train Put down roots then break the ground And pull them up again Pour another whiskey, raise it to the sky Then toss it back and hit the town Like practicing to fly Well she had eyes like steel shooters Well she had hair of emerald green She had every city sidewalk at her mercy In underneath a week She asked me for a light outside the barroom But she was made of kerosene So I just breathed her in until I went all dizzy And woke up on the street Roll another dollar, take another train Build a life then light a match And burn it down again Roll another barrel with a single bead of lead One in six just take the risk And put it to your head Well I don’t know where she went to when she left me But I know she went there quick And I’m sure I'm just another piece of past she has no patience for Even then she never did Roll another dollar, take another train Choose a mark and break a heart Then do it all again Pour another whiskey, raise it to the sky Then toss it back and hit the road Without a last goodbye

You’ve got that song that you’re strumming I’ve got this heart like a drum and Doesn’t it seem like they were made to play in time? You’ve got that smile that you’re hiding And I’ve got this patience abiding Cause I’m willing to wait for all of this to fall in line Well everything seems to be possible right about now Feels like something's gonna happen between us but I couldn’t say how All I know is that you are so pretty I sat down and wrote you this ditty And everything seems to be possible right about now You’ve got those boots made for walking So far you're still sitting here talking Doesn't seem like you're planning to hit the road I've been thinking but haven't yet told you I just wanna stay here and hold you Don't think that should come as any surprise Cause everything seems to be possible right about now Feel like something's gonna happen between us But I couldn’t say how All I know is you are so handsome I’m gonna do my best to land some And everything seems to be possible right about now We've got plenty of time until morning Only fair I give you a warning I'm intending to keep you up til dawn I don't know what the next day brings Never been good predicting those things But everything seems to be possible right about now Right about now Right about now Yeah everything seems to be possible Right about now

Someday When 02:27
Send me a letter by mail Write a new page in our history Hold tight and wait for me there 'Til I can reach you I know the distance seems far But I'm building an airplane to fly to you When I do This will be nothing Someday one day We can start over again Someday someday Biding our time until then Someday one day We'll have a chance to begin We'll be all right Someday when Holding your face in my hands Watching your smile in my camera Counting the moments til then Wait for me there Someday the sound of your voice The look in your eyes when you reach for me When you do I will be done for Someday one day We can start over again Someday someday Biding our time until then Someday one day We'll have a chance to begin We'll be all right Someday when

about

Combining Meehan Rasch's evocative, arrow-to-the-heart lyrics and Lauren Steely's dusty, driving arrangements, Angeles County's debut EP sits torn between the pull of the big city and the seduction of the road. Raised Clean is a slice of queer americana and rootsy alt-rock inspired by small towns, trucks, lost loves remembered, and redemption found on the highway. Produced by Mya Byrne, and featuring drummer Wendy Colton and cellist Jyvonne Haskin, Raised Clean is the perfect soundtrack to a lonely late night drive across the desert...
