Jana T The music and lyrics are both soothing and energizing. The words make me think. I like that "light" is an image that repeats itself in a number of the songs. It is reminiscent of James Taylor. Favorite track: Hopeless Love Song.

about

Me The Giant Seattle, Washington

With the release of the Lights In My Eyes album, Me The Giant brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush with dream like vocal harmonies, a mix of natural and digital instrumentation, and undertones of classic folk, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie pop anthems. Though the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds it all together much like a concept album would. ... more

Track Name: Lights in My Eyes
We went to get better
Packed our stuff and got on a plane
Moving west to California
Everything to lose nothing to gain

Lights in my eyes
Lights in my eyes
There were lights in my eyes

We don't want to grow up
Won't get caught if we can escape
Everything we know is made up
Everything we've done has been a mistake

Lights in my eyes
Lights in my eyes
There were lights in my eyes
Track Name: Fall Apart
If you fall apart I could put you back together
Give you everything that would make you feel better
If you fall apart I could make you feel whole again
Make you feel whole again, make you feel whole

I am educated in
The language you've created from
The things that you have said and you have done
I am dedicated to protect you from the evil that
Is seeking to destroy us one by one

If you fall apart I could put you back together
Give you everything that would make you feel better
If you fall apart I could make you feel whole again
Make you feel whole again, make you feel whole

Of all the things about you
I'm amazed that you allow me to
Pretend that I'm the one who runs the show
If I was here without you
I would crumble into powder and
Be scattered by the wind around the globe

When you fall apart
It is breaking my heart
Just to see you that way
We'll gather the parts up
In each others arms and
We know we're OK

If you fall apart I could put you back together
Give you everything that would make you feel better
If you fall apart I could make you feel whole again
Make you feel whole again, make you feel whole
Track Name: 24 Karat Gold
Wrapped up in a bow
Just for me
Twenty four karat gold
Can not compete
With what you have to offer
With what you have to give
You shouldn't bother
Yet you already did for me

The times that we share
All alone
Without the worries or the cares
Of the outside world
Are the reigning champion
Of the main event
And when we have them
It's the happiest I could be
Just you and me

There's nothing I
Would trade or give away or borrow
I love you just the way you are
When worlds collide
And it feels like there's no tomorrow
I'll still be standing by your side
Standing by your side
Track Name: Sorry Eyes
You said that you'd be late
I said that it's OK
Cause I don't mind the wait
Except you never came

This disappointment
Isn't wrapped up with your
Sorry eyes this time
I can't believe that you would lie
About why

I want to run away
Forget I know your name
You say that you will change
And we'll have better days

This empty promise
Is the last one I will
Swallow with my pride
I used to hold you in such high
Track Name: Colors
The Colors are changing
Their dripping rolling off the page
Feels like rain

Making puddles on the pavement
Catch some and spread some on my face
Feels like paint

The sunrise brings the colors
The moonrise takes them away
Fall winter spring and summer
The colors always remain

Waking up so damn early
Nothing looks like nothing in the dark
A million sparks
At the same time on the same line
It's moving faster than it looks
So Don't be fooled

The sunrise brings the colors
The moonrise takes them away
Fall winter spring and summer
The colors always remain
Track Name: Already Got There (I Don't Want to Wait)
You already got there but I don't want to wait
You already got there but I don't want to wait
You already got there but I don't want to wait
You already got there but I don't want to wait

Anymore Anymore

You already got there but I don't want to wait
You already got there but I don't want to wait
You already got there but I don't want to wait
You already got there but I don't want to wait

Anymore Anymore

Outside Outside Outside

You already got there but I don't want to wait
You already got there but I don't want to wait
Track Name: Hopeless Love Song
I can feel my stomach in my boots
I can feel the water rushing through my roots
The air is catching in my lungs
Then my eyes go blind from staring at the sun

I can't recognize what you say when you speak
Cause I'm too mesmerized by the light you release

Your light is shining brighter than it ever has before
My light is shining brighter than it ever has

I am waking up with you on my mind
And when I go to bed it's your face that I find
I'm tracing circles on the wall
And I've been avoiding this for far too long

But I'm still terrified when it's time for me to speak
My mind feels paralyzed and my legs are feeling weak

Your light is shining brighter than it ever has before
My light is shining brighter than it ever has
Track Name: Outer Space
I live in outer space
I got nothing in my lungs
Cause I don't need it
Though I've needed it for so long
I'm through with breathing
And weeping for the one
The sun will keep burning
After we are dead and gone
The sun will keep burning
After we are dead and gone

If there was a time and a place I could take you
We would make our escape and make love when we want to
I would not wait or look back on mistakes anymore
Track Name: My Kids Running *Bonus Track*
I can see my kids running
Their just up ahead
But I can't catch them yet
Who they'll be I'm still wondering
Maybe the president
Of the government

But will this be
The right thing to do for me
Cause I don't know if I could do this well
Sometimes I don't want to bring a life into this hell

I can see my kids running
First their on a beach
Then their in the sea
Some of you don't see this coming
Who will be president
With no continents

So will this be
The right thing to do for me
Cause I don't know if we are doing well
Sometimes I don't want to bring a life into this hell

I can see my kids running
Their just up ahead
But I can't catch them yet
I believe that we are learning
But we can reconcile
Though it may take a while

So this might be
The right thing to do for me
I still don't know if I could do this well
But I don't really think this world is quite like hell
