about

"Listening to this EP is like time traveling, for us. Suddenly we’re back in the house we grew up in, all the furniture shoved up against the walls of an old bedroom so the guitars and drum set would fit.

As we planned this ten-year anniversary vinyl release, we wanted to revisit the song that effectively started our career, but we knew that we couldn’t just sing it the same way ten years later and still feel honest. A lot of growth and change can happen in ten years, so the performance needed to change, too. New chords, new harmonies, a pared-down arrangement, and fond recollections of all the times you sang along with us on the road have made Hello My Old Heart feel new to us for the first time in a decade. We hope it brings back some good memories for you, the way it has for us.”

lyrics

hello my old heart
how have you been
are you still there inside my chest?
I've been so worried
you've been so still
barely beating at all

oh, don't leave me here alone
don't tell me that we've grown
for having loved a little while
oh, I don't want to be alone
I want to find a home
and I want to share it with you

hello my old heart
it's been so long
since I've given you away
and every day I add another stone
to the walls I built around you
to keep you safe

hello my old heart
how have you been?
how is it, being locked away?
well don't you worry
in there, you're safe
and it's true, you'll never beat
but you'll never break

nothing lasts forever
some things aren't meant to be
but you'll never find the answer
until you set your old heart free

until you set your old heart free
