lyrics

The smell of perfume hits my face from the door
As I try to maintain myself
My voice is trembling as I walk down the hall
And wait to be put on one of your shelves
It's raining outside so my hair is all wet
But you nod and say that's OK
Since we have kissed it's been exactly one week
And I don't want to stop feeling this way

I feel so sorry for how this has begun
I'll shut my mouth and stop making sense
I'll take my clothes off and put my best smile up
For you hate it if I'm sad when we dance

You feel the slightest shaking in my wrist
But please find comfort in this and don't fret
And even though I never asked for none of your help
You give me more than I deserve to get
Nothing else matters when you're breathing with me
As the sound gets loud and clear
I feel so high, I'm burning out like a star
Melting the last of my veneer

Why does it feel this way when I fall apart
Shouldn't this come with at least a sting?
Maybe because I have forever been numb
Now I still cannot feel the proper thing
I feel so sorry for how this has begun
I'll shut my mouth and stop making sense
I'll take my clothes off and put my best smile up
For you hate it when I'm sad when we dance

about

Hey Karen Eindhoven, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
