about

"Surefire" is a melancholy reflection on what could’ve been. It explores the tense dynamic between two people who could be good for each other if the situation & timing were different.

Track Name: Surefire
It’s not in my veins
To be playing games,
But I could write a book—
Call it made-you-look
Leave it up to me:
Can I let it be
Like I know I should?

You remind me that I'm not in control
I'm out of control, man
You know I think that I’m better alone,
But you’re keeping me open

And what I see in you is something they don’t
You already know that
I don’t mean to impose;
It’s only emotion

CHORUS:
I’d bet my pride
That you are where my heart would rest
At home in another life,
But in the meantime
I’ve left behind
Something that I can’t forget
It's surefire as a turning tide
Your fire is still burning bright

You don’t like to chase—
You think it's a waste,
But I really need
Men to take the lead
Way you made me care
Had me really scared;
It upset me

‘Cause you remind me that you’re running the show
You’re running my show, man
Is the timing why I’m sleeping alone
And losing my focus?

And what I love in you is something they don’t
Even notice
I just want you to know
It’s more than emotion

CHORUS

Where would I begin
If you let me in?
Color like a rouge
At the thought of you
We could hit the road
If you wanna go
Do you want to?
