about

"Wait By The Rabbit Hole" is the second album by 22-year-old San Francisco multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/producer Girl Named T; a lushly-orchestrated, pint-sized indie/rock record equally inspired by the off-kilter songwriting of Pixies, the Motown groove and by The Beach Boys' concept of the "pocket symphony".

Featuring: Erma Kyriakos (ERMA) on violin on cello, Elliott Peltzman (The Stone Foxes) on Hammond Organ and long-time members of the Girl Named T live band: Ben Burney and Colin Hayes on drums and lead guitar respectively, and of course Girl Named T on drums, bass, guitar, keys, and vocals.

CD RELEASE PARTY is FRIDAY AUGUST 3rd @ THE COMPLEX-SF (thecomplex-sf.com)

Track Name: I Fell In Love With The World Today
I Fell In Love With The World Today

One cold November day in the city by the bay
I walk to heal a heart that’s broken
Sent up a little prayer from the city hall stairs
And then my world split open

I pull back the peel, 'til I reveal
A blood orange with the beating veins
I reach in my finger, touch the red quiver
And forever my finger was stained

I fell in love with the world today
I fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it, no

The city's singing to me
Steel notes blooming
Sirens on their desperate errands

Broken glass arrangement
Sparkle on the pavement
Below the fog horn A flat

Picked up my guitar, write what I saw
But their voices had slipped down the drain
Now deep in my slumber, the rhythm rolls onward
And the melody haunts me again and again and again

I fell in love with the world today
Fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it,
I fell in love with the world today
Fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it,

When you can't hold on, when you can't hold on
When you can't hold on, when you can't hold on,
When you can't hold on

I fell in love with the world today
Fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it,
I fell in love with the world, it’s true
With the beauty and the wretchedness too
I feel the pulse jump, stall and fade
I fell in love with the world today

I fell in love with the world today
I fell in love with the world today
I fell in love with the world today
It’s too strong
Track Name: This Is All I'll Ever Be
This Is All I’ll ever be

I think I lost my tongue
Can you lend me one
Or mouth the words I need to keep you

Happy, my lips are laughing
Hooked on my mask, and do that
Dance for your distraction

Now if you don’t believe me
Look it up, we started off crazy
Now if you won’t forgive me
Then leave me, then leave me

Can’t escape my chemistry,
Can’t unwrite my history
This is all I’ll ever be
This is all I’ll ever be

Read me your scarlet letter
Your quips are clever
They safety pin my lips together

Better go make my own way,
Before they stone me
Crack the glass that keeps your faith in me

Now if you don’t believe me
Look it up, we started off crazy
Now if you won’t forgive me
Then leave me, then leave me

Can’t escape my chemistry,
Can’t unwrite my history
This is all I’ll ever be
This is all I’ll ever be

Now if you don’t believe me
Look it up, we started off crazy
Now if you won’t forgive me
Then leave me, then leave me
Some people don’t want saving

Can’t escape my chemistry,
Can’t unwrite my history
This is all I’ll ever be
This is all I’ll ever be
This is all I’ll ever be
Track Name: Wrecking Ball
Wrecking Ball

Everybody loves a sad sad story
Shine it up, make it sparkle for me
Controlled by your chemicals
They keep you runnin around, oh

Self delusion is a cold cold mistress
She put a torch to your white feather dress
I know it's my vertigo that keeps me hangin around, hangin around

Somebody out there's after you
Somebody out there knows
You can't hide from the consequences oh

Ooo, lookin for ya,
Oooo, loose it all
Oooo, you can't fight it I'm your wrecking ball

Prowlin town for a heart worth stealing
While I'm eloping with this lonely feeling
Up, down, that's the merry-go-round
That keeps on passing me by, oh,

Everybody loves a deepest secret
Locked away until the loose lips leak it
I dream of being the wrecking ball
That puts a break in your stride, break in your stride

Somebody out there's onto you
Somebody out there cares
They won't stop til they're face to face with you

Ooo, lookin for ya,
Oooo, loose it all
Oooo, you can't fight it I'm your wrecking ball

Ooo, running through you
Oooo, watch ya fall
Oooo, you can't fight it I'm your wrecking ball

There must be some reason,
Yes some kind of reason
I wait for the hammer to come down,
Come down

All these times think you'd learn your lessons
Instead of mastering the best regressions
Retired, you're the perfect child
And I'm done playing your games, playing your games

Somebody out there's onto you
Somebody out there knows
They won't stop til they're face to face again

Ooo, lookin for ya,
Oooo, loose it all
Oooo, you can't fight it I'm your wrecking ball

Ooo, running through you
Oooo, watch ya fall
Oooo, you can't fight it I'm your wrecking ball

I'm your wrecking ball, I'm your wrecking ball
I'm your wrecking ball, your wrecking ball

Ooo, lookin for ya,
Oooo, loose it all
Oooo, you can't fight it I'm your wrecking ball

Ooo, running through you
Oooo, watch ya fall
Oooo, you can't fight it I'm your wrecking ball
Track Name: Rabbit Hole
Rabbit Hole

Ooo tonight's the hundredth time
I'm returning to the scene of the crime
Sky darkens in the forest cage
stark face I, I must be brave
nights owls put a chill in my bones,
the light's gone from the road
I'm waiting by the rabbit hole
Best way to catch a rabbit I know

Oo feels like 5am
I let my finger off the trigger again
throw my lantern down the rabbit hole
I'll find you, someday you know
wild dogs howling at the moon
new day is arriving soon
oo I think i lost your trail
jump in, "I might as well"

it's a long way down
it's a long way down
it's a long way down
and my landing was loud

And I musta looked so confused
You caught me as I was catching you
Thank god you were by yourself
maybe there's some hope left yet
maybe there's some hope left yet
maybe there's some hope left yet
Track Name: I Melt With You
Moving forwards using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world crashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you

(You should know better)
Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
(You should see why)
Trapped in a state of imaginary grace
(You should know better)
I made a pilgrimage to save this human's race
(You should see why)
Never comprehending the race had gone on by

(I'll stop the world) I'll stop the world and melt with you
(I'll stop the world) You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(I'll stop the world) There's nothing you and I won't do
(I'll stop the world) I'll stop the world and melt with you

The future's open wide
The future's open wide
The future's open wide

(I'll stop the world) I'll stop the world and melt with you
(I'll stop the world) You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
(I'll stop the world) There's nothing you and I won't do
(I'll stop the world) I'll stop the world and melt with you

The future's open wide
The future's open wide

ooo ooo ooo
oo oo oo ooo
ooo ooo ooo
ooo oo oo ooo

I'll stop the world and melt with you (I'll stop the world)
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time (I'll stop the
world)
There's nothing you and I won't do (I'll stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you (I'll stop the world)

I'll stop the world and melt with you (I'll stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you (I'll stop the world)

I'll stop the world and melt with you (I'll stop the world)
I'll stop the world and melt with you (I'll stop the world)
Track Name: Falalalala Love You
Falalalala Love you

I could give you some line
That you’ve heard a thousand times
“Hey baby, what’s your sign?”
Or I could give you my word,
But watch the news for a minute or two,
And you’ll know what that’s worth

Looked day and night
How to describe
A love so strong
Words don’t belong

I falalalala love you, do you
Falalalala love me, I do
Someday under the almond tree
I'm gonna use your kiss to rectify me,
Oh come on and try me

Don’t make me say it again
First times the charm,
And my heart’s in the palm of your hand
Oo I stutter and my blood is frozen,
Can’t speak or show emotion
When you meet my eye, oh how I, I , I can’t talk I, I

I looked day and night
How to describe
A gaze like that
Stopped me in my tracks

I falalalala love you, do you
Falalalala love me, I do
Someday under the almond tree
I'm gonna use your kiss to rectify me, oh no

I looked day and night
How to describe
A gaze like that
Stopped me in my tracks

I falalalala love you, do you
Falalalala love me, I do
Someday under the almond tree
Your gonna put your kiss on me, kiss on me
Put your kiss on me, kiss on me oh
You see
Track Name: Summer's Coming
Summer’s Coming

Sit in a garden on top of a hill,
The world is spinning but we’re sitting still
The day’s getting longer and hotter but we
Stay in the shadows of flowers and trees

Summer's coming, don’t you want someone
To share these lonely nights or something

The wind's blowing trails through the golden grass hills
The world is spinning but our story’s just beginning
We got sunlight through the bedroom window
Got green grass wherever we go
And I love you truely darling don't you know that I'm crying,
I’m crying

Summer's coming, don’t you want someone
To share these lonely nights or, or something

Well he's coming
(darlin don’t you want somebody)
Summer’s coming
(darlin don’t you want somebody)
Track Name: Anapoeia
Anapoeia

Oh no, anapoeia, his hands are red and he's coming for me
Oh keep your eyes on my radar, we spin in time and it's a beautiful thing,

You can hear them ring

Love, you are the only one

Mister, there is no other one

So don't leave me the lonely one

Night after night
, who's gonna keep him out?

Oh no, anapoeia, his hands are red and he's coming for me
Oh put your eyes on my radar, we spin in time and it's a beautiful thing, thing

You can hear them ring

Ring, ring, ring
Ring, ring, ring...

Don't leave me the lonely one, night after night

No, no don't leave me the lonely one, 

Leave me the lonely one, night after night

Who's gonna keep him out?

Oh no, anapoeia, his hands are red and he's coming for me
