Scraped out of the corners of our basement, mixed and mastered in our bedrooms, thrown out into the streets with a collection of broken drumsticks and old guitar strings.

about

Young Splendor Portland, Oregon

Young Splendor is Jamie (vocals, guitar, bass), Kellen (vocals, bass, guitar), and Justin (drums, vocals). ... more

Track Name: It's Such a Beautiful Day
There was a strange disconnect between us
You couldn't see the past and I couldn't see the sense
We wandered 'round town underneath sky and stars
We lost it out there, I haven't heard from you since

Record my heartbeats and everything will be just fine
Day-by-day you'll hear them keeping time
Tattoo your words upon my arm so all will see
Just how much you meant to me

I carry 'round my guilt forever
It keeps me patient, it keeps me tempered
You're oh-so-perfect and oh-so-clever
Though we know by now this won't last

Record my heartbeats and everything will be just fine
Day-by-day you'll hear them keeping time
Tattoo your words upon my arm so all will see
Just how much you meant to me

I can almost hear you say,
"It's such a beautiful day"

I can almost hear you say,
"It's such a beautiful day"

(everything will be ok)
Track Name: Inmates
I can't run from you
No, I'm petrified like a crumbling castle
You may say you want the truth
Well I wish I knew, that's the truth of the matter

Your habits won't take you very far
Bad habits, they take you prisoner

Push me away, won't you
And I'll go now, I'll go, and I'll go
Cause if I stay, I won't change
And the 'me' you loved is getting pretty old

My habits won't take me very far
Bad habits, they take me prisoner

I lay my bones down on the moss and loam
Maybe these cold hands will finally take me home

Our habits won't take us very far
Bad habits, they take us prisoner
Track Name: Aurelian Society
Summer is ending, and the days are getting longer
As we walk towards the dawn, clumsy and stumbling
As songs lose all meaning, and paintings lose color
We grew up despite each other

The days go on
But winter has not come quite yet
It may be that nothing is wrong
I wouldn't discount us just yet

Now I'm reading you loud and clear
Shedding fears and countin' down the years
While tending a garden of ulcers and ground molars
And we're so far away from what we're meant to be
Whatever that could mean
Somehow I know you've got the best of me

The days go on
But winter has not come quite yet
It may be that nothing is wrong
I wouldn't discount us just yet

And one day we'll make it, past the horizon
Searching for faces that we used to know
That never seem to show
Track Name: Head Down, Feelers Out
They chatter like teeth
When we're the ones who're freezing to death
But they make no apologies
And we're the ones who are ashamed of every little thing

Days stretch out like weeks
Experienced but not truly lived
Encased in somber grey wings
When you're a bug, you are afraid of every single one

I will whisper sweet somethings in your ear
For all the world like a moth drawn to a light
That they can touch and see and hear
And when you're gone, I'll hide in the dark
Track Name: 7am
Drifting through the forest, the taste of warm beer on our lips
Tomorrow's forgotten, never thought it would end up like this

We both need some time to assess where we are,
But you just look so beautiful under the stars

Driving through Seattle, you're the only thing left on my mind
I know where I'm headed but I wish you were here by my side

I've two hours of sleep, I'm not ready to go
There's nobody waiting that could make me feel whole
