about

The working title of this song was The Owl Song or more simply, Owl. It inspired the artwork for the Nocturnal EP and even the idea for making an EP to begin with.

lyrics

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

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.
