about

Tender night is about writing Tender Night. It’s about my father telling me that I’ve gotten lazy in my song writing. I wrote the music after listening to a lot of Dirty Projectors and a lot of Animal Collective. I changed the lyrics so many times, the theme of the song became about the stress of trying too hard to reach the right lyrics and about wanting to leave everything and go to the zoo or the waterpark or something. – Élie Raymond

lyrics

Tell me I’m lazy
Make me think as I go back to sleep
Questioning the value of original ideas
But I’m falling apart
And I can understand why you want the return of the queen
I’m drifting away, drifting away, drifting away
Forgetting names
Losing face
And my crumbling faith

Tender night
I want you for myself
Hold me tight
Tender night
I want you for myself
Hold me tight

Go back
Running in place, make all your peers wait
Go back
Soaking up in the slick lives of strangers
Go back
Amalgamating, consuming
Go back
Adding too much
Add three, add another one
Take me
Take another one
Watch me lure your heart in

Tender night
I want you for myself
Hold me tight
Tender night
I want you for myself
Hold me tight

Disappear in the cold of the light
Oh oh oh
‘Cause it is too much at the same time
Disappear in the cold of the light
Oh oh oh
It’s always too much at the same time

Tender night
I want you for myself
Hold me tight
Tender night
I want you for myself
Hold me tight
