about

This release completes what Art envisioned as the "Cycles of Love" trilogy. The first release ('Surf Suburban EP'), punchy and upbeat, embodied the comedy of full-blown, joyous love. The second ('Cult of Love'), drenched in reverb and heartbreak, exposed love as an inevitable tragedy. And the third, aptly titled 'Crush', explores the tensions around desire and attraction in the uncertain act of falling in love.

Track Name: Don't You Wanna Go Out?
Don't, don't you wanna go out?
Don't you wanna go out
Go out, go out with me?
Don't, don't you wanna go out,
Go out, go out with me?

I've known you for a long time
So don't you wanna go out,
Go out, go out with me?
I've loved you for a long time
So don't you wanna go out,
Go out, go out with me?

I'll care for you forever
Will never say never
So go out, go out with me
Your joy will be my endeavor
So don't you wanna go out
Go out, go out with me?

I'll never let you go
Just tell me,
Tell me you won't say no
Oh no!

So don't, don't you wanna go out?
Don't you wanna go out,
Go out, go out with me?
Don't, don't you wanna go out,
Go out, go out with me?
Track Name: Lying To Myself
I've been patient for an answer
I've been waiting for your reply
Do you desire what I desire
Do you wanna give this a try

Cause if you do
I'll promise you'll see
The farthest stars
The deepest seas
Or am I

Lying to myself?

Is your touch as rare as diamond
Or is it as common as the wind?
Have you been hardened by the fire
Or do you seek a warm sun to bloom

Cause if you do
I'll promise you'll receive
A bounty of joy
A heart that's free
Or am I

Lying to myself?

Love are you still here?
Are we done playing this game
And are you ready for something real?
Something honest, something true?
Well just to let you know, I am

But if you're not, I'm not about to let up
When I know what I want, I go out and get it
And what I want is you
So baby could you please help me out
And tell me if I'm

Lying to myself
Track Name: Slower
Don't turn me over, just let me know
How long will it be before you let me go?
You hold the line, a bullet soul
It's just that sometimes, times, so slow
Sometimes, times, so slow

I don't wanna believe or be in love

Don't put me on, just let me in
How many times did you let me win?
Give me one more, my ticket's in
Oh, can we try again
Can we try again

I don't wanna believe or be in love
Track Name: No Waiting
Take what comes
Let go of what goes
Come towards the one you know
And the truth will show

That without thought
There is no pain
Just feel what you're feeling
There is no name

So there's no waiting
For this here to begin
Yeah there's no waiting
It's already happening

Release yourself
And you will achieve
All you've ever desire
All you'll ever need

So unravel all closures
And fear not exposure
The skin is a surface
To bring pleasure purpose

So there's no waiting
For this here to begin
Yeah there's no waiting
It's already happening
Track Name: Show Who You Are
There is dark and there is light
But there are shades of black and white
There are colours unperceived
That shape the visions that I see

Cause I see you lover, I see you lover
Waiting in the darkness
Yeah I see you lover, I see you lover
Hiding in the shadows
So now, show who you are
Show who you are
Show who you are

In the day or in the night
I feel your eyes flash within my mind
In the dim or in the bright
When the lights go out
Then you are mine

Cause I see you lover, I see you lover
Waiting in the darkness
Yeah I see you lover, I see you lover
Hiding in the shadows
So now, show who you are
Show who you are
Show who you are

There is dark and there is light
But there are shades of black and white

So show who you are
Track Name: Shared Dreams
Where have you gone?
What do you see?
Can you believe,
believe in me?

Where have you gone?
What do you see?
Can you see me?
Can you see me?

See me

Look in my eyes
Look in my soul
Look at the past
past that's been told

See through the light
See through the dark
See all the colours
colours that spark
and see me

See me
Track Name: White Fog
White fog of the night
Everything feels so right
Between you and I
Oh oh oh the light

In the white fog of the night
Everything is so nice
And then we touch
Oh oh oh then we touch

In the white fog of the night
Ain't no wrongs, it's all just right
With you and I
Oh oh oh it feels so right

So don't speak,
No don't speak

In the white fog
Oh oh oh the white fog of the night
