about

'Smokey Lovers' started off as a collection of acoustic demos recorded inside hotel rooms in various U.S. cities. The demos grew with time and hard work. Some amazing people helped make this album possible. Without them it wouldn't have been possible to. Thank you for listening to 'Smokey Lovers' enjoy the groove and feel the love <3

Track Name: I Prefer The Library
"I Prefer The Library"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)


Well oh
We travel by ocean
Well oh
We travel by sea

Well oh
In case you don't find
What you want
Look in your mind
And there
You'll be far away
High above
In space

Well oh
She travels by motion
Well oh
She likes commotion
Well oh
She likes to party
Well oh
I prefer the library

So go
In case you don't find
What you want
Look in your mind
And there
You'll be far away
High above
In space
Space
So go

La, da di dum, di dum, go (4x)
Track Name: Fall Back
"Fall Back"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)


All of these mountains seem quite tall
All of my problems seem quite small
Stuck in the pages of a magazine
Pornographic millionaire routine

I didn't mean to make you cry
I just wanted you to die
I didn't mean to make you laugh
I just want to see you fall back down

I'm blowing out smoke rings
And death rays surround
All the people in this quiet desert town
I am watching and waiting
For something to change
Every moment here it feels the same
As the rocks fall the rats in the hole
We'll meet him there
When we get old

I didn't mean to make you cry
I just wanted you to die
I didn't mean to make you laugh
I just want to see you fall back
See you fall back down

Back down
I just want to see you fall back down
Back down
I just want to see you fall back down
Track Name: Stay The Night
"Stay The Night"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)


We were both lying in your bed
We were both covered in a sweat
I had my hands inside your dress
You had your head upon my chest

It was such a beautiful mess

Darling please don't go
Wont you stay the night
Cause' even in the darkness
We can find some light
Sometime in the morning
The sun will surely rise
Darling please don't go
Won't you stay the night

She said I live with no regrets
Think about quitting cigarettes
I wonder what comes next
I wonder what comes next
I've got a lot to lose, so take it from me soon
I don't want to live to die again, again

Darling please don't go
Wont you stay the night
Cause' even in the darkness
We can find some light
Sometime in the morning
The sun will surely rise
Darling please don't go
Won't you stay the night

Won't you stay the night (4x)

Darling please don't go
Wont you stay the night
Cause' even in the darkness
We can find some light
Sometime in the morning
The sun will surely rise
Darling please don't go
Won't you stay the night
Track Name: Thirst
"Thirst"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)


Well oh my love
It's been sometime
Since I've laid you down
And in my mind
My minds eye
Tossing turning
Wishing you were round'

(Wuh-uh-uh-uh-oh)
I just want to touch
(Wuh-uh-uh-uh-oh)
I can't quench my thirst

Oh my love
You taste so sweet
With your skin so soft
Make me want it all
Just take it off
Let it go and I'll call you mine
Making love
Feeling fine

(Wuh-uh-uh-uh-oh) (2x)
I just want to touch
(Wuh-uh-uh-uh-oh)
I can't quench my thirst

I can't quench my
I can't quench my thirst
Track Name: All That I Am
"All That I Am"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)


This is the only god damn thing I've ever known
You must keep on pressing forward down the road
And so I hear
It doesn't get much easier when you grow old
Bugs appear
To peel off all the skin around your skull

All that I am is full of sin
So please condemn me to a flame
So I can fuel the fire
All that I seek I wish you to see
So I speak into the air
And flex my tongue as a muscle

And flex my tongue as a muscle

You get old (7x)
Track Name: Smokey Lovers
"Smokey Lovers"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)


Smokey lovers on the corner
Tangled up in motel beds
Oh my god you should have seen her
When we were younger more innocent

And I am trying to forget
What the world was like
Back when we were kids
And I am trying to forget
What it would be like to kiss a stranger's lips

My tiny house was on the border
There it built me brick by brick
I saw her swimming by the river
She stepped out so I stepped in

And I am trying to forget
What the world was like
Back when we were kids
And I am trying to forget
What it would be like to kiss a stranger's lips
Track Name: Bird Song
"Bird Song"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)


Tell mother I'm doing fine
Tell father I'm still alive
And when it rains at night
Tell them I stay dry

Flying by myself
Dear mother
Away from all my sisters and my brothers
Set apart in the sky
All alone to fly
I think I'll be alright
Just think of me tonight

We flew away today
To the south to our destiny
Through fields and trees we flew to our new homes
My face doesn't look the same
Since last when you saw me leave
My wings keep on trying to follow its change

Flying by myself
Dear mother
Away from all my sisters and my brothers
Set apart in the sky
All alone to fly
I think I'll be alright
Just think of me tonight

Know that no matter what
I'll go until I've had enough
Keep on flying with the rest
Only stop to catch my breath
When the going still gets rough
When I'm sleeping in the dirt
I'll find my way back home to you

Flying by myself
Dear mother
Away from all my sisters and my brothers
Set apart in the sky
All alone to fly
I think I'll be alright
Just think of me tonight

I'll think of you tonight
Track Name: Heart Of Electricity
"Heart Of Electricity"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)

You made circles in the ground
With your toes in the mud
Your heart is electricity
Powering the city
All alone you feel broken
Silence has spoken
Fear will make you grow
Until the day we go
We're singing

We're singing
La ah ah ah
La ah ah ah oh
La ah ah ah ah oh
We're singing

When the winter comes my love
I'll keep you warm
Like the sun keeps the earth
From getting cold
Over time
All the moths they make their homes
In the dark where we lay
We shake our bones
As they quake to make
The shape of one

We're singing
La ah ah ah
La ah ah ah oh
La ah ah ah ah oh
We're singing
Track Name: Psychedelic Waves
"Psychedelic Waves"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)

And these are the star days
Yes this is a new age
In psychedelic waves

Guess I never thought I'd be
Nothing more than a machine
Yes I never want to go
Into the ground inside a hole

Hello, are you alright
You hear voices in the night
Singing these, are the star days
Yes this is a new age
In psychedelic waves

Guess I never thought I'd be
Nothing more than a machine
Yes I never want to go
Into the ground inside a hole
Track Name: Here To Stay
"Here To Stay"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)

She tasted sweet
Underneath my tongue
She ran deep
Inside of my blood
And I knew
I'd never be the same again

You see my mind has gone
I am changing soon
Please don't miss me now
When I've left the room
The young will fade to old
And soon slip away
Darling all of my love
Is here to stay

As my heart began to breath
As my mind began to see
All the love that makes you me
And our bones in the grave
May rot away
But my love is here to stay

You see my mind has gone
I am changing soon
Please don't miss me now
When I've left the room
The young will fade to old
And soon slip away
Darling all of my love
Is here to stay
Track Name: The Smoke
"The Smoke"
Words & Music by Kinsley August (ASCAP)

The smoke in my house
Creeps up like a mouse
Through the window
And out the door
In the cupboards
And on the floor
I looked in the shadows
But your not here

Well I'm broken
Yes I'm broken
Well I'm broken
But I'm alright

Through the window
And out the door
In the cupboards
And on on the floor
I looked in the shadows
Your not here

Well she's broken
Yes she's broken
Well she's broken
But she's alright

I'm out the window
I'm out the door
I'm in the cupboards
I'm on the floor
I looked in the shadows
Your not here
