about

"Breakup" is the proper name of spring in Alaska. On beers with the Ex.

lyrics

It's coming on Equinox, I've found no balance for to speak of
Just salt on my shoes – just recycled blues
But I paid all my bills on time (I measure miracles per minute)
I'm unlikely at best – I'm unlike all the rest.
Funny to me still, how naturally it came to us
How easy we were we, how clear things were to me
Oh, I hope it snows...
And maybe you, maybe we, maybe she...

I know I'll see you again after Breakup
When all the stacks of slush are gone
When all the dirt is dry and warm – it could happen
And you can be you again after Breakup
And we're gonna laugh and laugh and laugh
And I'll pick up the tab like nothing's happened
'Cause nothing happened

It's coming on Equinox, no revelations worth a mention
Just more light on the grime – just frost on my mind
Your silence is broken now, but clarity's still hard to come by
You're unlikely to say – unlikely to stay
Funny to me still, how actually I don't much mind
I love the long dark nights; I came here to chase the ice
Oh, let it snow...

I know I'll see you again after Breakup.

Oh – it's coming on Equinox. Lost my headlamp, lost my scraper
In puddles of mud – my heart's like to flood.
But waking up's easier now the clocks are set for sunlight
Just get me to June – I'll be over you soon
Funny to me still, how factually the seasons change
No pain when that ice cracks – I'm gainin' minutes back
And maybe you, maybe we, we may be...

about

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
