Trinidad

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.

    1. The English Room
    2. When I Grow Old

lyrics

Stay home safely
Symptomatic of aristocrats
By the time you reach thirty-three
Condescending in the heartland
Please come quickly
You've already got the upper hand
Lemonade iced-tea
Bringing back your southern contraband

Listening to the same songs
When I was in the backseat staring at cars from another
And the only thing that I can remember
Is that anybody's face would do

Essex Elementary
I found a picture that your brother had
Franklin Road Academy
From your vacation back to Trinidad
Expectation is a luxury
A luxury you never had
Do you want anything to do with me
Or could you meet me at the newsstand

Listening to the same songs
When I was in the backseat staring at cars from another
And the only thing that I can remember
Is that anybody's face would do

We could pick a Saturday
And I could meet your sister too

Life is easy
If you never go to summer camp
If you watch enough TV
It'll make you wish you never had

Listening to the same songs
When I was in the backseat staring at cars from another
And the only thing that I can remember
Is that anybody's face would do
Listening to the same songs
When I was in the backseat thinking of you

We could pick a Saturday
And I could meet your sister too
