When you come back from the war They say you’re not the same Some people come back from the war Completely changed And I swear you won’t make me go back there again There’s no way you can make me go back there again When i came back from the war I found that I’d changed Now that I’m back from the war I only want to stay They said when I came back, I’d completely changed And now that I’ve come back, I’m not nearly the same And I swear you won’t make me go back there again There’s no way you can make me go back there again

I know you , you'll wait for the surprise cause we, are both older and wise this moment, is frozen in time how long, will it take to change your mind ill be the same guy tomorrow no better place than here and now we've never been this close together with anyone else, before trying to stop tomorrow trying to hold onto this cast a spell with your smile the magic of your kiss I know, this feels, oh, so right holding onto you so very tight this day will soon turn into night we both know, we're running out of time counting the hours to this moment we both know that it would come but we can't keep on pretending that this dream, will never end trying to stop tomorrow trying to hold onto this cast a spell with your smile the magic of your kiss trying to stop tomorrow trying to hold onto this cast a spell with your smile the magic of your kiss

Say the word Search Chair Witch Life Say the word Voice Bite Mood Wire Say the word Deep Date Far Base Say the word Rush Learn Cool Make Say the word Ring Luck Judge Ditch Say the word Young Mess Such Sour Say the word Haze Beg Calm Turn Say the word Talk Hate Time Pass Say these things to hear above the din Differentiate what I mean Words like live and life and judge and hate But nothing ‘ bout you and me Words to separate signal from noise To pull a voice out of the void Underscore that I can still hear you Even without all these words Say the word Learn Have Say the word Hear Hold Say the word Long Try Say the word Talk Try Say the word Time Me Say the word Base You Say the word Calm Me Say the word Life You

If I can’t hear you Can you hear me? What’s that mean for you and me? If I can’t hear you And you can’t hear me Exactly what’s that supposed to be? I can try I can try To help you see what I see If I try Please don’t cry If you can’t tell what I mean Do you remember? Do you remember? Do you remember way back when? I can remember I can remember I can remember when….

Too many voices Too much noise And there’s no way I can avoid This ever-rising ringing in my head You speak to me I turn away And I can’t hear A word you say And it sets off a real and present fear Too much, too loud Voices of a crowd I’ve reached the point Of overload Seek out silence Try to hide No better when I go outside I can’t escape it even if I run Quiet space I recognize But there’s still No place to hide I think I’m slowly losing my mind It’s getting louder every day Sometimes in circles, louder every day Ringing louder and louder every day And I can’t make it go away

So here we are again, my love The dance it goes on, with you, my love You call me out to circle the floor Asking me please, just dance once more The partners have changed, but the dance remains New faces and names, but the moves are the same You call me out to circle the floor Asking me please, just dance once more Please won’t you join me for a dance? Come with me and take a chance Once again for old time’s sake Repeat with me your great mistake So I being to circle the floor Find myself dancing once more

I guess it's plain to see You got the best of me You’ve won this round My resolve lies firmly on the ground You win, I agree Score one for you and none for me You’ll have your way this fine day That’s how it’s gonna be You win, I agree The losing end belongs to me You know best, at least this time And you say that I’ll be fine I tried my best To dodge and weave around your net But you called, my friend So here I am, signed up again CHORUS You know what’s best for me Even when I can’t see So I’ll follow your lead At least for a year or three You win, I agree Nineteen for you and one for me Watch the pennies on your eyes They’re hiding your disguise You win, I agree You claim bright things in front of me You know best, at least this time I guess that means I’ll be fine

It’s hard to do for me It doesn’t come that easily But I’ll try for you To see if it’s something I can do I just wanted to say I think I’ve found a way To trust It’s not my way Bad memories, too many to say But I think this time Maybe I’ll be fine I didn’t think I could But it seems I should Give in to trust

Look over there, it’s house panther You see a shy guy, I see a romancer If you’re willing to take a chance You could make romance with a dancing panther Do you want to take a chance Moves sure to put you in a trance You say you can, I say you can’t Look in the eyes of a real house panther Big cat, out on the prowl Listen there, hear that growl Hey there, don’t look now Little kitty’s starting to meow CHORUS Tell me now, whatcha gonna do? Gonna run, or try something new? Break out your best moves Show you’ve got something to prove CHORUS RAP BREAK: Shout out to the night-life in the big city Y'all greet the House Panther with a "here kitty kitty" Coz the party is L-I-T A-F And ya know that cat always comes correct Whether you're a homebody or a club go-er Once you get through that door it's over And even if ya don't comprehend what's in store Letter Seventeen gonna get you on the floor And of course I don't know what the future might hold And I don't know if I'll die before I get old But like the man said, "fortune favours the bold" And the party people know it, they don't have to be told Can't deny the facts, not even a little The cat's in the middle like hey diddle diddle Don't be concerned with unnecessary chitchat Just understand she's no ordinary housecat Time for the here and now Little kitty’s starting to meow Listen there, hear that growl Big cat, out on the prowl CHORUS

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
