about

Evan Lecker Lampasas, Texas

Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Evan grew up a victim of the best and the worst of the late 80's and 90's. He eventually learned to accept this musical abuse and began to channel it into his craft. He believes the title "singer-songwriter" is code for songs that meander way too long and the difference between "indie" and "rock" is more about the cut of your jeans than the sound of your band. ... more

Track Name: Soft Yes
I know you know just what I’m thinking
This life is too short to waste it all on drinking
Your friends they smile but their smiles are slowly sinking
They drown on the upside of town where you can’t reach them
It’s the same as before
No matter where you go
You could move you could stay
But those feelings remain
And you’re staring at the face
Of a prince who just can’t save you
I know you know just where I’ve been living
I see your lights go by when you think I’m sleeping
Go on and ask the question you’ve been thinking
My guess is it’s a soft yes you’ll be given
Hey baby why don’t we go dancing round
The questions that burn you
You wake up screaming in your hotel room
But no one can hear you
Track Name: Crocodile
Tell me what you heard sing back all the lines
Open up the windows let the light shine in your room
Hold my hand and look into my eyes
Tell me bout the things that were dancing out in the rain
A hundred pairs of hands thread the needle through
The war torn skin of a tattooed animal
Shattered glass from houses made of stone
Thatch roof burning like the candle burning in my room
Tears crawl like crocodile
Fears all coming together
They won’t leave me alone
Tear me up inside spread me out over the lake
Swim on your back save me from this terrible place
Hold my hand and look into my eyes
Tell me bout the things that were dancing out of the flame
Tears crawl like crocodile
Fears all coming together
They won’t leave me alone
Life speeds up when you’re holding a child
Life speeds up when you’re walking through walls
Life slows down like a song in the wild
