about

Jack Greenleaf and Henry Crawford have been writing songs together for as long as anyone can remember. If you are listening to a Small Wonder song, you are also listening to Sharpless whispering along behind the singing. When you listen to Sharpless, Small Wonder sits nearby, playing along on the floor.

What I'm trying to say is that Sharpless and Small Wonder are inextricably linked to each other. What I'm trying to say is that, in a way, this single is the most honest release that either have done. Not hiding behind the isolation of the moniker, and instead embracing the community of the band name. What I'm trying to say is that you have to lose something to give something, and that nothing great comes easy. There's no such thing as "Free"

These two songs are about the destructive power of pride. These songs are about the fear of losing something that defined you. They aren't love songs for one person so much as love songs for a single moment, suspended in amber.

Track Name: Clammy Hands
there's got to be some way out
i'm crossing my fingers for now
hoping that with or without
we're all in this together

(clasp your bracelet to your clammy hands)

no one is nursing my hangover
i tow the line between a nightmare
and waking life

no one is nursing my hangover
i town the line between a nightmare
and waking life
taking your turn is so overly polite
a hopeless manhood
groped by clammy hands

better the devil you know
better you reap what you owe
i'd rather discomfort i'd rather disease
i'd rather disorder than hands like these

(clasp your bracelet to your clammy hands)

no one is nursing my hangover
i town the line between a nightmare
and waking life
taking your turn is so overly polite
a hopeless manhood
groped by clammy hands

no one is nursing my hangover
i town the line between a nightmare
and waking life
taking your turn is so overly polite
a hopeless manhood
groped by clammy hands
Track Name: Roses for Daisy
roses for daisy
i'm not following
she's had her moment
i'm still waiting
she flies
she soars alone at night
doesn't she?

back home in the fire
we started a band
our words strung together
made so many plans
so weak
too excited to sleep
we could be

(tell 'em daisy)

come on now daisy
don't you miss those days?
wrestlin' our demons
sharing center stage

don't you
miss singing with me
quietly?

roses for daisy
are you still playing drums
i've still got my fender
but i don't pick it up

it's late
and i can't stay awake
