Just Like the Young We were down by the park Doing things in the dark And we were still young We'd do anything for some fun Sometimes we had none So we'd drink 'til we were numb Held that smoke in our lungs While we were kissing tongue to tongue But it's just like the young It's part of who you become Bumming smokes after school And thinking we were cool Passed a note in the hall The words written were so small Read that four lettered word That I always heard Carved our names in the pines Then I took yours and you took mine Living like Kings We weren't afraid of anything But it's just like the young To think the world is for them Under the Sun It's what we become

Don't Belong 02:53
Don't Belong Why does it take so long to belong? Why don't you let me in, Take me in I can be your kin How could I be so wrong for so long? How could I ever doubt this, What would I be without this? I don't belong in this How could I ever guess I could be such a mess Why does it take so long to be a part of and to belong I don't belong in this Just don't belong

Boy 03:37
Boy Ever since you were a boy they put you in line They said there's no truth but you know it's a lie They threw you in the pool and said learn to swim 'Cause you'll always sink if you don't win They make you go to church and take your dose You didn't say yes but you couldn't say so They told you about the monsters then they left you in the dark They told you about the fish but they threw you to the shark They'd tease you at school and they'd tease you at home And they called you every name and they threw you every stone They took away your love and they taught you how to hate Then they'd ask you to their parties and leave you at the gate You can't live alone but you can't live without They ask you to be calm but they make you shout They stuck in school to learn nothing at all They say keep getting big but they make you feel small They ask you to be born but they want you to die They said there's no truth but you know it's a lie

Mathematics of the Heart You're so out of season It's almost in style I don't know the reason I don't have that dial If you are a feeling Than I am a state I'm just an emotion Trying to relate Your love is like an art And you're my counterpart You bend just like and arc Mathematics of the heart I ain't ever been older Than when I was young You had the lookers But I had the fun If you are a feeling Than I am a state I'm just an emotion That won't abate Your love is like an art And you're my counterpart You bend just like and arc Your love is like an art And you're my favourite part Mathematics of the heart

Generation Joke I was down, I was down, I was down on luck Almost on my knee But I can't recall the midwest line Does mercy have a seed? And vanity's loud company From another time Like high school girl at the jubilee The masses always bleed I don't why they get so low A generation joke A generation on its knees Another kid in line Another hand to push on me And they keep saying to choose a side I know that never's not enough I don't why they get so low A generation joke All that I am I won't give away To a generation joke

Nowhere Boy 02:21
Nowhere Boy Have I seen it all or have I been nowhere? Did I lose it all, or was it always there? Can you comfort me whenever I'm scared? Can you pull me in before I fall off my chair? I was twenty-one when I first left home Was trying to make it own my own But there's a kid in me and he's never grown old Still trying to find what I'd known Will take me in when I'm feeling small? Would you let me write upon your wall? You can change my clothes and change my hair But you'll never change me, that I swear
8.
Heavy Blinker I was on a darkened desert highway And in the distant on the shores I bled Lying under the dying desert inferno Now I think I know just what you said You were watching all the boys from the gallery And you were listening in on the phone lines Waiting for the Animals at the border How I wish you'd led me through the pines We've been counting all the helpless summers And every bottle in between And living in this paranoia Where tall white houses fill the streets That's why everything little thing still matters It's in everybody that you meet Is it enough to give? We're half wrong and half right We're just trying to get by

Dumb Days 02:26
Dumb Days I was so much dumber when I was young Swaying like a daisy in the Sun Didn't even have a care 'Cause nobody ever said to me I was so much dumber when I was young Oh la la la, Oh la la la We were dumb Teacher teacher speak to me in tongues I tried and tried but still she couldn't come Never even had a care 'Cause nobody ever said to you We were so much funner when we were young Oh la la la, Oh la la la We were dumb
10.
In my dreams there is a sound Ringing in my ears I have heard this sound before But it's only half of what I hear Face to face with the swollen sky And the clouds that turn to gold Remember me as I was before I grew so cold When will the sun warm My silly heart I thought I saw the silver rings Spinning around the sun And we were part of everything And part of everyone Remember me as I was before Just like when we were young When will the sun warm My silly heart

about

SUNFIELDS Montréal, Québec

Imagine Elliot Smith hanging out with Tom Petty in the back of Neil Young's van while listening to Sparklehorse.
Acid-laced pop Sunfields is the brain child of Jason Kent. The quartet hails from Montreal.
Their debut, Palace in the Sun (2010), was described as
'…the most overlooked album of 2010.' HABITAT, their sophomore, is "…blossoming like a field of poppies in a rainy English field."
