lyrics

I wish that you'd pretend
If we keep on driving west, this day won't end
I wish you'd make believe
We both know it's not real, so just indulge me
Help me build this lie
I'm an arson, so help me build this fire

I'm holding on too tight
Do stolen moments make a life
It's best I run away
I'll never know what you mean to me if I stay
I hide my love in plain sight
I know your friends have told you, and your friends are all right

I mean, they're great; they're all mine, too
But just one day alone, I promise would not kill you
I think I married far too many, far too soon
Can't lose what I don't have, but I'm afraid to lose you

Six months is too much time
I walk away from nines
In hopes of my ten
But 'til then, I'll just pretend

about

XOXOK Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The music of XOXOK is conceived on the fretboard, cradled in headphones, and cultivated at the microphone. The guitar and vocal influences are far-flung, but cohesive (J. Buckley, J. Frusciante, F. Ocean, J. Blake).

Often armed with just an electric guitar, the live performance is a model of intimacy and presence - a combination of soulful, smooth, and soft tunes laced with unabashed emotion.
