about

Kyle Brauch Chicago, Illinois

Hi, I'm Kyle - this is virtually everything I've released since I was about 13. I found master tapes/discs and decided to archive it ALL - even the embarrassing teenaged recordings.

My primary project is MIDWAVE.

Track Name: Something's Gotta Give
-------

I'm tired of the same old, same old thing
I'm wired different, got to remove this string
Coz I gotta get out, and I gotta move on
It gets me down, down, down, down, down

Night or day
With a handshake I'd make all this go away
Night or day

Ooh, oh, something's gotta give

It keeps on running, keeps running, running circles on me
And now it's time to run out

I'm trying not to lose my, lose my grip
I'm lying if I tell you my day went quick
Coz I gotta let go, and I gotta get out
It gets me down, down, down, down, down

Night or day
With a handshake I'd make all this go away
Night or day

Ooh, oh, something's gotta give

It keeps on running, keeps running, running circles on me
And now it's time to run out

It's the way the situation reads
It's the way the conversation turns to stone
It's the way the company I keep
Gets me dancing between violent streaks as sharp as a triangle

Ooh, oh, something's gotta give
Track Name: Thinking Out Loud (featuring Mina Tobias)
-------

Can you hear me?

Draw a line in the water
Or keep in your head in the clouds
You can try to look away, don't matter
You'll still feel your heart racing

Can you hear me thinking out loud?

You're an echo of someone I knew
But I'm back on the highway soon
When I try to look away, I hear you
Every single thought racing

I can hear you thinking out loud

Make a move and make it right
Or forever wonder what could be

Can you hear me thinking out loud?
I can hear you thinking out loud
Track Name: Summertime Girl
-------

I think I'm burning
But she gets cold when it gets hot
You're overturning
Everything I say, everything I've got

I feel it coming with the shake of a wrist
She's a summertime girl with a wintertime kiss

I think I'm burning
But I get this feeling that you're not
And as I'm learning
You count me down and take your shot

Did you know you hurt somebody?
So what, so what
Did you hurt them badly?
I know that
Did you know you hurt somebody?
So what, so what
You seem to do this glady, oh

I feel it coming with the shake of a wrist
She's a summertime girl with a wintertime kiss
Track Name: Emergency (featuring The Partimers)
-------

It's all just propaganda, this thing about you and I
I must have skipped the stanza where we don't see eye to eye
And so I'm home alone and I feel you creeping in
Got a shadow outside my window, I need to run

I called 911 and they just laughed at me
They told me that this wasn't an emergency
This is not the way that it's supposed to be
My life should not resemble that of mystery

And so I'm running away, away
And so I'm running away, from you

I see you coming, butterfly
I see you coming, not tonight

We should've just talked about it, but now I've got to run and hide
Kiss and tell with a lonely phantom, I'm haunted deep inside
No plot, just skin and tension - you aim to hypnotize
The thing you failed to mention, I have to improvise

I called 911 and they just laughed at me
They told me that this wasn't an emergency
This is not the way that it's supposed to be
My life should not resemble that of mystery

And so I'm running away, away
And so I'm running away

And so I'm running away, away
And so I'm running away, from you

I see you coming, butterfly
I see you coming, not tonight
Track Name: Bruises
-------

double check, she's a mess, it's the way she's treated
loveless wreck, house arrest, bruising from the beating
on the chest, or the neck, when the room gets heated
not a drill, just a test, where she's always graded

so she saved up money in a box under the mattress
if she was gonna do it she was gonna make sure it happened

and we all stood by on the other side
while she indulged her pride
she sleeps alone tonight again
and we all stood by with a blinded eye
we saw her take his life
we let her claim her own again

quiet man, minivan, perfect model neighbor
people talk, gossip shock, but they don’t believe her
all the press, mourning dress, photo in the paper
wedded bliss, murderess, but she’s sleeping better

she tried to find a way to get herself back on the level
she never found a god but she put a ring on the devil

he's below and she's inside without an alibi
no way to live this life
two wrongs don't make a right, they said
and nobody wonders why all her tears run dry
she used to be outside
and now she waits until the end

25 to life but she's always been a captive
he made her feel alone and he made her feel unattractive

now her mother sits at home and thinks about her time
between the truth and lies
that night the world around them died
when she visits once a week she sees a fading light
she lost a losing fight
and now she sleeps alone again - tonight
