I loved you at my worst And I loved you to my best Hooo hoo hoo hoooo Hooo hoo hoo hoooo I built you from my worst With what's left of my nest I know you're not my first These feathers weigh heavy on my chest Hooo hoo hoo hoooo Hooo hoo hoo hoooo Now I'm sifting through my stones Gathering your bones To rebuild you as I remember you But I'm feeling so alone This curse I bear has shown My love cannot be one with one like you It's just me and the moon Singing a lullaby to you Hooo hoo hoo hoooo Hooo hoo hoo hoooo Hooo hoo hoo hoooo Hooo hoo hoo hoooo

So Long 02:42
I've been waitin' for so long And it's been takin' so long It takes time but time's been tickin' so long Leaves me wonderin' what ifs might come along And everyone's tip-toein' Through a field of mines Never really knowin' Just how they lose their minds And everyone's afraid of What might one day change Well change is comin' It's comin' anyway But I've been tryin' to hold on And I've been tryin' so hard Well I've been feelin' so-so so long A man can wring his hands only so long And everyone is waitin' For their turn to die Trying to fit their life in Before the big goodbye But all of life's surprises And let-downs are the same To prepare for our demise and Embrace it as a change- it's okay And everyone is showin' Their faces from behind Never really knowin' Someone else's mind And through all of this growin' I can't help feeling strange When change changes nothin' As changes lead to change But I've been patient for so long As things I've awaited don't come Life, I can only hold on for so long Until we're sayin', "So long!"

Glow 03:22
Take it easy Allow yourself time Memories are fleeting They change more each time We bring them into our mind It's never easy Thinking of our time: (h)ours decreasing A framework of fine wire But when the darkness comes You glow If you look up close enough We are all a blur And everything is buzzing, swaying In tune with the universe And what is out there, who knows? But you glow as it glows What do you see with your eyes closed? All one aglow A hue, a glow aglow

The Answer 04:05
I was going to write a book When I had found the answer All I found were riddles and Coincidence and chances Well I tried... I drove South to find myself There I found you Rediscovering myself, Vitality and view You said you were going away Sooner than was true I had dreams that you might stay But of course I knew That you would drive... So I searched the mouths and minds Of lovers and romancers I learned many clever things Still I found no answers I'm attributing more to You than may be due Still there is no shaking things That so adhere to you Now I see life in everything Breathe in, blink and sigh Oh, I may close the lids from time to time But I'll never close my eyes

We were a few years late to the party At least we have pictures to remember satellites and sanitariums Here are a few lines for the few times that we sat and talked enough to end up on the same page For all of you in Athens to Florida to New York to Chicago by way of Sylva by way of Penn Yan and the coast of Virginia May your seasons transition softly and may you never lose sight of enjoyment through every suffocating summer and every frigid winter And when cicadas screaming from the cages of your doors awaken you at 3 am I hope you can remember just how wonderful it is just to be alive Living the way that we do doesn't make sense to most people and it doesn't have to

about

Grey Milk Athens, Georgia

You are here... sort of.

We are natives of New England and currently base our operations out of Athens, GA.

We're part of Nobody's Favorite Records and The Branch Collection: two obscure, amorphous groups of folks who collectively pool our efforts of creativity- primarily those of the musical variety. These monikers give us the appearance of added legitimacy.

We are human.
