Glorita Markov First time I heard after I downloaded, and I fell in love with the tract a shot. I heard all the Sotheby's tracks several times but this one has a little Spanish flare to it. Love it.

about

From skeptical, to crush, to confusion, Little Cocoon Boy embodies the dawning of a new love. Each song, written about the illustrator of the album artwork, expresses held-in thoughts and hidden affections. Though the EP is mostly-happy, as most beginnings are, Jonathan still finds little pieces of melancholy to showcase the entropy in the minds of those met with someone they could fall deeply in love with.

Track Name: Little Happenstance
My favourite fluke,
How do I write a song about you
When all I know is I don't have a clue?
But when I met with your eyes in the cloudy skies
They somehow seemed to turn blue
And stop the rain that was pouring,
Just to find I was soaring through
To you...

And so I flew
Into the clouds that faded grey to white to blue,
Just floating in this coloured air balloon.
Can't seem to shake this glance I'm tugging off of you.
What's her name, what's her game, what to do?
She's pretty darn cute...

From these jumbled, unwordable thoughts, you appear.
I picture you holding me close - is that weird??
This wonder just came when you came into sight,
But love, I think I've just discovered my type.

Though I know
Cuteness never truly amounted to innocence,
You got me, love, you got me all tied up in a sense.
My heartbeat flutters in this oddly familiar place
I don't think I'd mind calling home.
And I can't stop the stutter, can't stop looking into your eyes.
I'm a sucker for those bangs and confidence you don't hold inside.
I swear when I get the chance I'll tell you I knew you would be
My little happenstance by luck.

A happenstance is a little dance that counts just 1-to-2.
The only steps I'll need to take are the ones that lead to you.
I don't understand but take my hand let's go fly to the moon,
'Cause love you encapsulate me like a space suit...

From this fuel-blasted takeoff and ear-piercing roar,
my heart taunts the shake of your giant steel core.
Your voice mocks the crowd as your feet leave the ground,
For when you come back I'll listen for that sound.

Though I know
Cuteness never truly amounted to innocence,
You got me, love, you got me tongue-tied in my defense.
My heartbeat flutters in this oddly familiar space
I don't think I'd mind calling home.
And I can't stop st-stutter, when I'm looking into your eyes.
I'm a sucker for that bangin' confidence you don't hold inside.
I swear when I get the chance I'll tell you I knew you would be
My little happenstance by...

This happy hippie fandom
Is so random,
Though I don't mind this on my mind.
Scarlet lips and silver tongue but still the angel under the gun
Which I'm gonna jump.
And this is gonna suck...
My little happenstance by luck.
Track Name: The Market Song
Saw you at the market today
Sunglasses on, beneath the shade.
Caught your eyes telling me "stay"
Subtlety in everything...

Precise puppeteer over string
Distracted by nothing but a bee sting.
Wildflower pollinator, spread your wings
For this world don't prepare you for a thing.

Your heart is old and your mind still raw.
That may just be your fatal flaw...

I'd pray for you but God knows what I'd do
To be anything just a little like you.
And I'd fall for you but God knows what it'd do.
Either way it's gonna break my heart in two.

When you lose your hair, you lose your mind
But who says you still can't take your time?
Little-by-little break those paradigms,
And I'd appreciate if you broke mine.

Your heart is old and your mind still raw,
And I can't let that be your fatal flaw...

I'd pray for you but God knows what I'd do
To be anything just a little like you.
And I'd fall for you but God knows what it'd do.
I swear to God this'll break my heart in two.


Should I be your big brother, kid?
Or should I be jokeless romantic?
All I know is you're innocent
And this love can't just be a temporary fix...

So pray for me cause God knows what I'll be...
So fall for me if my love's what you need...

And I'd pray for you but God knows what I'd do
To be anything just a little like you.
And I'd fall for you but God knows what it'd do.
I swear to God this'll break my heart in two.

Either way it's gonna break my heart...
Track Name: Wings & Stars
Fire's burning, water's pouring, charcoals screaming.
Smoke is mocking my chest that's soaring and my head fleeing your flames..
Feeling that continental shelf moving under stars, like hell,
I can't even move for myself.
Can't be honest if I fell, only honest if I tell
My silver-steel of a heart will melt.

Cloudy clear is all I know...

Healing hurt, oh
Watch the seal go
As bloods rush out of our souls.
Hero's hero,
Feel, don't feel, oh
Can't be nothing if I tried to let our wings and stars collide.

Frantic flying, heart that's dying, compromising.
Her hand is waiting, my hand is pacing
I don't know where to go from here.

All I know is cloudy clear...

Healing hurt, oh
Watch the seal go
As bloods rush out of our souls.
Hero's hero,
Feel, don't feel, oh
Can't be nothing if I tried to let our wings and stars collide.

Misty smoke rise in my eyes.
Hiding tears unfit to hide,
Misty smoke rise in my eyes.
(Repeat a million times)

Cloudy clear is all I know
Cloudy clear is all I know
Cloudy clear is all I know
Oh oh oh...
Track Name: A Shot
Baby I don't know what you've been up to right now,
You still haven't texted me back.
But I know somehow, deep down, you'll come around.
Baby I don't know where your heart lies in this,
My vision is turning to black.
But I know for sure my heart's going to insist.

Your heart, my love, will calm me down,
Your love in my heart will draw me now.

'Cause listen one and only,
You don't need to worry.
If you hold me closely, I'll never be lonely.
Babe, I'm sorry, I may not be myself.
I'm just so insecure
But you're the straight-up-cure
For my mind that's a menace a lot.
So before my contagion spreads,
Give me a shot.

Baby I'm not hiding you from my friends, my friend -
They already know everything.
They know your name,
Your laugh, your smile, your anything.

My closest ones say I'm attached at the hip.
But your love, my love will justify my grip.

'Cause you're my one and only,
You don't need to worry.
If you hold me closely, I'll never be lonely.
Babe, I'm sorry, I may not be myself.
I'm just so insecure
But you're the straight-up-cure
For my mind that's a menace a lot.
So before my contagion spreads,
Give me a shot.

I know it's just a crush,
Shoulda figured as such,
But you're no breakup-crush/crutch,
Still my legs sustain too much.
Giving me movement to heal
So let's make a deal,
STOP.
alright.
Since green means "go"
And yellow means "slow"
So that leaves red to "stop".
Though red is close to pink,
I seldom think that
"La Vie En Rose" should stop.
So baby, stop stop stop stop stop
What you're doing to me.

So before my contagion spreads,
I'm probably gonna wind up dead.
So before my contagion spreads,
Give me a shot.

Go on and give me a shot.
Inject me with your thoughts.
Oh, a shot.
