Mexican Cigarettes

from by Pet Lions

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Two years after Soft Right, Pet Lions returns with their debut full-length Houses (release date May 10, 2011), bringing warmth, depth, and maturity to the punchy pop of their debut EP. Produced by Neil Strauch (Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s, Iron and Wine, Bonnie “Prince” Billy), Houses shows Pet Lions moving from home to home, sharing auditory real estate with power-pop mainstays Phoenix, art stars Deerhunter and Sonic Youth, and synth nostalgists Tears For Fears and OMD. With Houses, Pet Lions has channeled regret, desire, and hope into a noisy yet melodic whole – for the first time, they feel right at home.

lyrics

Dressed up for you in my navy jacket
Heart full of shells and mind made of coast lines
You were so perfect in your sunglasses
With every hour we felt a long time

You could be mine

I fell asleep that night with a new love
I spent the next three weeks in a cold light
Until the next time I feel the same rush
The thought of you keeps me in a dark mind

Drove from Texas for Mexican cigarettes
Hold me closely, hold me closely

You could be mine
