I’m done asking you to be healed for me I’m done asking you to heel to me I’m done asking you to breathe out so I can breathe in, so I can be loud You can leave me here Just release me dear Don’t live another’s life If it’s not love enough Go live another life Go live another life If it’s not love enough Go live another life Go live another life I’m beautiful but I’m dying Ice weeping into sea Silently at first, now it’s screaming out of me I can bleed right here Leave a crimson smear on you Won’t live another’s life I won’t live another’s life Run for your life and don't look back And don't look back Run for your life and don't look back And don't look back Run for your life and don't look back And don't look back Run for your life and don't look back And don't look back Run for your life and don't look back And don't look back Live another life Go live another life Go live another life Go live another life Go live another life If it’s not love enough Go live another life Go live another life

I’m done asking you to be healed for me I’m done asking you to heel to me I’m done asking you to breathe out so I can breathe in, so I can be loud You can leave me here Just release me dear Don’t live another’s life If it’s not love enough Go live another life Go live another life The shallowest shadow I , tried to become it/ I’m becoming of something you’re wanting for fabely / forage in make believe, make a Forrest with made up leaves/ when you leave you always left your make up / there’s something left , it ain’t a guess/ in invest in fate love/ this ain’t love enough/ run away and run a muck/ shoulder not to be looked over / stoops to better truths, leave me here to be shook sober/ done asking you to be healed, you done asking me to be still/ still I won’t heal to you, I’ve lived other lives / seen scenes from their bitter views / I’ve kneeled in pews, pay for trues that’s don’t exist/ my hesitance is heaven sent/ where’s the relevance , let’s bow out/ leave it in elegance , I’ve found out/ forced fates only cause quakes, in here pumping the breaks / If it’s not love enough Go live another life Go live another life

about

“Live Another Life” deals with the tension of control and how identities can be bound together in relationships. A simmering percussive loop sets the stage for Lott's threadbare entrance: "I'm done asking you to be healed for me, I'm done asking you to heel to me." As the music approaches a boil, bursts of a smeared, hashy choir undergird Lott’s lyrics as an abrupt flurry of drums snaps the song into an urgent tumble.

"Live Another Life (Heal For Me)” trades the tactile percussive sounds of the original version for an unstable swirling haze of guitar-generated textures, grounded by heavy, mangled 808 kicks and gut-punch snares.
Nappy Nina deftly delivers angular cadences on her two verses, diving deep into the nuances of a fraying relationship, reflecting: "we forage and make believe, force a forest with made up leaves."

about

Son Lux New York, New York

From the start, Son Lux has operated as something akin to a sonic test kitchen. The band strives to question deeply held assumptions about how music is made and re-construct it from a molecular level. What began as a solo project for founder Ryan Lott expanded in 2014, thanks to a kinship with Ian Chang and Rafiq Bhatia too strong to ignore. ... more
