You know I'm not gonna listen to you. It's gonna be my problem. Oh but you, you still love me like you used to. You know I find myself wandering around Wonderin' aloud How you, you still love me like you used to, yeah. Without you, I'd be in a ditch Without you, up to my neck in it Without you, who knows where I'd be if not for your good graces You know I'm not done messing' around It's gonna be my problem Oh but you, you still love me like you used to Without you, I'd be a ship adrift Without you, up to my neck in it Without you, who knows where I'd be if not for your good graces You know I'm not done messing' around That's gonna be my problem Oh but you, you still love me like you used to I'm gonna lay it all on the line Bet my fortune Oh that you, you still love me like you used to I know it don't really sound like much But I thank you For you, you still love me like you used to, yeah. Without you, I'd be in a ditch Without you, up to my neck in it Without you, who knows where I'd be if not for your good graces You know I'm not done messing' around That's gonna be my problem Oh but you, you still love me like you used to

LSD/LSD 04:33
Love you in the morning when the sun hits your face It shows your lines and it shows your age Love you in the morning with your hair back in a pony-tail I'm trying to do better and to remain real Someone once said it's not what you feel No, in love it's only what you do Like everything else it's in the give and take Blow out your brains, hurry up and wait Carried by a wave to the waiting shore And all you Love Sick Dreamers Take this down as a fact It's not in all those pretty little, well timed words you say It all comes down to how you act Swaddled by your weight and gasping for breath Clutching onto life after grazing death Only to open your eyes and see their sleeping face ( I )Tattoo your initials right into my skin From where I end, to where do we begin It freaked you out a little but me I'm alright with it All you Love Struck Demons Take this down as a fact It's not in all those pretty little well timed words you say It all comes down to how you act

Will you love me tomorrow Is that fire in your eyes? I kiss the ground that you walk on Stay up and just talk all night Put the sun in the sky (for you) Every time I picture you It's always by candlelight Warned by my Momma Scold by my Papa Told that I wasn't alright in the head Yeah now, what do they know anyway How could they even tell Well I'd love to know anyway Is it heaven or just the sweetest hell? Would you come to me softly Or just clock me right in the jaw Give me what for, through my ass out the door Then say, hey man what you leaving for? Oh, I know Yes I heard you my dear And yes I understood every single word you said you made it all so clear Yeah now, what do they know anyway How could they even tell Well I'd love to know anyway Is it heaven or just the sweetest hell? Yeah now, what do they know anyway Have they ever really felt like this They ever wanna just jump off a bridge After only one of your kisses What do they know anyway How could they even tell Well I'd love to know anyway Darlin' Is it heaven or just the sweetest hell The sweetest hell The sweetest hell

Hello Baby 04:04
Hello baby how you doin'? (It's) been so long since we've been through an... Wish I saw you each and everyday Probably need to be on your way And I got nothing new to say except Ain't it sad 'bout me and you Ain't it so sad that we're through Hello baby how you doin' (It's) been so long since we've been through an... Oh I miss you each and every day I see you walking' down the street With every single eye you meet It still feels worlds away All that loving you gave to me How do you know just where you're going You close your eyes and just pretend Hold your breath and count to ten If you forget you gotta start all over again It's the first step that's the most important You gotta get up on your tip toes an Through your arms around my neck Let me lean in for a kiss Hello baby how you doin' (It's) been so long since we've been through and It took me too long to get the nerve Sayin' I'm sorry shouldn't be this hard Oh is there a second chance in my cards Well, she turned away I thought to cry But then she looked back with a smile And she said, What the hell took you so long To come up to me and start singing this song That I was right and you were wrong As if that even matters anyhow It's the first step that's the most important, dummy You get yourself a little bit closer, honey Through your arms around their neck Maybe then you'll get your kiss How do you know just where you're going You close your eyes and just pretend Hold your breath and count to ten If you forget you gotta start all over again It's the first step that's the most important You gotta allow yourself a little bit closer Through your arms around their neck Then she leaned in for a kiss...

Rollin' along and do you feel The arc of the Earth rollin' beneath your feet Think of times yes now and think of places that you'd like to be Well, yes I know where I'd want to go Back to when, Your hair was shorter, not like mine We'd get drunk on real cheap wine Wasn't it nice babe, like living' in a sunbeam That was then and now it's today Let's make the best of what's come our way Lay on the ground and do you feel The breadth of the sky it's covering' over you Inhale the air yes now and close your eyes Dream what you'd like to do Go on out there and make that dream real There's nothing better than doin' what you feel That was then yes and now it's today Let's make the best of what's come our way Rollin' along with one foot in front of the other Say I love you to your sisters and your brothers Don't forget now your sons and your daughters Your hands are your healing tools Your tears are holy water Time back then man it was motionless Knowledge it was power we were powerless Out doin' all the things that we knew were wrong But when you got your buddies along Just about anything can seem fun

about

"TheNow" is a snapshot of the ever-shifting and collaborative nature of Cold Car. This EP was recorded mostly in the basement rehearsal space at Ken's home.

Performing on each track is Ken Carter, Leah Lodato & Clint Sours. The trio derives its unique sound from Ken's songwriting, coupled with the apropos accompaniment of bass guitar and percussion. Layered on top are tasteful lead lines, recorded independently by the artists credited.

In an effort to stay true to the character of Cold Car, this project aims to capture the authenticity of a Cold Car performance.
