In my dreams im in that grey room In my chest im feeling dark blue Take the redline into downtown Im trying to escape you Crying on the subway Cos i remember on that thursday How everything was different Oh im always gonna miss it If i could ever change things If i could ever forget I would be no longer living Oh you know ill always say yes If you should end up winning If i should ever regret I will be no longer winning Oh you know ill always say yes
2.
Im always waking up too early Heavy set in my routine I don't like it when things fall out I don't like it when they leave me If i finally understand How it feels to be noticed How it feels to be loved then I can sleep through the morning Its ok to be at home Im gonna keep my head down Cos if i ever see too clearly Im gonna knock the lights out Its ok to be alone Cos im gonna make it happen Im gonna make it perfect Better than it has been Oh im tryna make it cool And im tryna make it by Don't tell me that im wrong Cos aint nobody right (Satchy) Say im doing fine but i could be a little better Maybe im thinkin too much and youre just clearer And im beggin for your words to be something good ive never heard Im crying theres something wrong You don't want to be Something special to you or me

Hear me Follow Fear me Shallow Can i run fast Fast as loves go Days are days and days and days away I run along the fall and fall to fade Don't forget me don't forget my name Everyday are days and days the same Bare me Scream out I am King now Fear of future Run the wrong turns

Time away i thought i saw you Walking in place quite Lost in your ways They don't understand yet Lost in the summer goes time New year Were runnin soon I know fear In the afternoon Problem solver Whats the answer New solutions to Issues elder If i go searching for Better weather Will i love home More than i have ever In my room No one ever says things like they do Gone too soon I don't understand yet what we do New year Im livin through I know fear In the afternoon
5.
I wont know Where you go If you are lost Ill carry you home What we hear Goes away From what is real And what is safe We are scared to tears Everyone we fear your fear And i am scared tears Cos i cant heal your fears You would run away Eastern sky of grey Im not one to fall So don't call til youre ok
6.
And i heard i heard what you said And i fell i fell so far And i tried I tried so hard Yea i tried Didnt get me very far And i ran I ran the world And ive heard Ive hear it all And ive tried Ive tried so hard Yea ive tried Doesnt get me very far And i don't Don't know the words But i know I know what i heard So don't try Don't try so hard Oh don't try Doesnt get me very far

Im only one I lie alone These days are long Can i become Somebody new Whos arms are strong There’s nothing two It’s always one And im running out of time Cos she’s not here anymore Nobody ever calls me Like they did before I don't want to believe that were living alone I don't want to perceive what i hear on the phone If there is talk Then i am young Its not my fault These things become What i fear through What i have lost There’s nothing two It’s always one And im running out of time Cos she’s not here anymore Nobody ever calls me Like they did before I don't want to believe that were living alone I don't want to perceive what i hear on the phone

Ive been walking round lately Hangin on your cross streets Thinkin how im never Knowing what im looking for Oh im in and out of bad dreams Tryna see what you mean Wonder if your waiting Im tryna make it like before Ive been thinkin bout you lately Tryna see if maybe Im living how i should be I don't wanna be ignored Oh im walking round pacing Thinkin how i might be If i could ever know what What im waiting for In the afternoon Im waiting round for you Henry : Why stay round here Well i don't really know Why stay round here I really wish i could go Something about you makes me say Feels like i lost everything i had What’s the point Wasting all my time in the evening Spending all my time like it’s easy

I know youre just like me Weak heart, late start And i say i can be happy In this big town if you can get down I don't wanna be just like you Walking around with nothing to do I know i lose Crying in the morning wishing you were open What’s wrong This is my love song To you who ive known too long And i wanna go home Love and emptiness You’re full of it Low and behold We cant be held You’re just like me But no ones so young like you No one is in control I know everytime i lose What’s wrong This is my love song To you who ive known too long And i wanna go home What’s wrong This is my last song To you who ive known too long And i wanna go home I wanna go home I wanna go home Its you that ive known too long and i wanna go home

If i could start If i could move Somewhere far off Somewhere brand new And when i fall Fall into you Fall into thoughts I cant get through Oh you’re so right And im so cruel Unto myself I don't know you If i was good No need to play I talk myself Back everyday Oh i will start This time of year Something to prove Like moving on Like someone new Oh i will love Until im blue Im moving on Im something new

about

Clamouring for creative outlets from an early age, Hana Vu formed musical projects and played shows, though without fully clicking with her teen peers in the local D.I.Y. brat-pack. “I wouldn’t call myself a curmudgeon, but I found it hard to be friends with other young people. Instead, I found two or three key homies, then just did my own thing— socially and in my music”— partly explaining the ambition and ambiance of her first official release How Many Times Have You Driven By.

Written and produced by Vu herself, and mastered by Clay Jones (Modest Mouse, Sunflower Bean) the LP masters the defining balance of bedroom pop: it’s warm, sparse, and whisper-intimate yet at the same time wholly radio-ready.
