about

In 2015, Mattea's Two Dragons and a Cheetah bandmate, Joel Wu, left on a year-long journey around the world and eventually settled down in a different state. They're still a band--they still see one another and make music--but there's "a new normal" now, which means embracing and adapting to change. Catchy guitar riffs, Doors-like organ tones, driving bass lines, and hypnotizing drum beats give this song its unique groove.

lyrics

Only 15 hours to go
Watching the clock with hawk-like gaze
There’s a new normal now
We’ll figure it out somehow
We’ll figure it out some day

Tell me a secret nobody knows
Whisper it to me before you walk away
I’m clinging to memories
And falling to my knees
Still singing the songs of yesterday

Back on east coast time for the show
But the center will call and take him away
All we get are moments now
Life is just moments anyhow
Gone tomorrow, but here today

Tell me a secret nobody knows
Whisper it to me before you walk away
I’m clinging to memories
And falling to my knees
Still singing the songs of yesterday

While inspiration’s on vacation
On location in Minnesota, we…

Tell me a secret nobody knows
Whisper it to me before you walk away
I’m clinging to memories
And falling to my knees
Still singing the songs of yesterday
