Calling It Quits I got choked up when I saw you When I saw you in his arms So I went down Right down to the bottom Of a very expensive bottle of wine It's been a month long expensive bottle of wine I went and pulled out all the letters The letters I wrote I never sent About the springtime What makes me happy How we once shared a loving bed And just how much I loved when I loved my man So when I speak to my neighbour We used to talk about the weather Now we talk about forever And how forever feels so long When you're alone I went and wrote down some kindly words Words that I wish that I had said Like you're a heartbeat Beating softly You are the only bird that sings in rhyme Love finds a way to get lost every time So when I speak to my neighbour We used to talk about the weather But now we talk about forever And how forever feels so long When you're alone

Crazy Tropical Survival Guide All at once the world will be ending All at once everything in the world will seem so clear Everything you did, everything you thought Everything you broke, everything you bought Will be gone away So the other day I woke up with a smile And I laughed the whole day through I'm a happy man as far as I can tell I'm a happy kind of man But today I woke up all alone And I may never find a home I'm a lost man as far as I can tell I'm a lost kind of man So maybe I should waste away each day Because the place I live is made Of grey clouds static in the sky I'm a happy man on the stage All at once the world ended All at once everything in the world became so clear Everything I did, everything I thought Everything I broke, everything I bought Had gone away

about

"Stunningly captured moments of heartache and loss. A seemingly effortless blend of Squire’s and Maki’s voices accompanied by the same beautifully quiet background guitar picking." - GRAY OWL POINT

"A talented and affable folk duo." - GLOBE AND MAIL

Whilst travelling through the south of Spain in the fall of 2010, Kate Maki and Fred Squire stopped at Paco Loco Studio in El Puerto de Santa Maria to record a couple country songs. Having only known each other a very short time, the couple, standing around an old RCA ribbon mic, breezed through the songs as though they had been playing together for decades.
