Call it a eulogy. "When You Think of Me" is a song about legacies, inspired by Morrissey, and featuring saxophone from our very own Shawn Jones.

lyrics

LYRICS
Too far: too far now. Thoughts tumble out: People and places.
In hand, grains of sand, slipping away, the names and faces.
Tow coins sailing out spinning around into a fountain.
Two boys awash in noise: Say "good luck" and this is away we go.

When you think of me, say "he was dignified and refined"
When you think of me, say "he was generous, oh so kind"

This road, how far it goes: Twists and turns and turns out a one-way.
Back home, circles close Sew themselves up, the scar is a fading
Line through lives you once were living.
Do you remember them: Brandon, Kathryn and me?

When you think of me, say "he laughed aloud, he made us smile"
When you think of me, talk of the ones I loved: “Drove ‘em wild”

In your winter clothes, just before the bus comes.
Oh and summer knows the things we couldn't run from.
Sing please, we made the darkness
Bright: A light in our time.

When you think of me, say "he was fearless, he looked danger in the eye."
When you think of me, say "he was smart, a smart-ass, a brilliant mind."
Then say "He was one of the good ones, a good man, and God Damn, do we miss him so.
"He was honest and modest and GOOD LOOKING. Tell us where did that good man go?"

about

Little Cinema New York

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.
