about

This is our first album. We recorded it in 3 days with our friend, Jonathan O'Brien, in the fall of 2011. We set up shop in the sanctuary of Drew's church and played, sang, stomped, and clapped until we couldn't anymore, and this album is the result.

about

The Slow Waltz California

The Slow Waltz first formed in early 2009 as a side project by Drew Williams and Megan Atlakson. Both Drew and Megan had been writing music separately and had been affiliated with various groups before deciding to come together and try their hand at writing together. The result was immediately recognized as being awesome, and they haven't looked back since. ... more

Track Name: Might Be Love
Oh, it's been so long
Since I have been in love
But we are not to blame
This is not our perfect game
And we are both the same
We're both gun-shy

You might not be good for me
But I want to wait and see
Because you're more than kind of great
I think you're worth the wait
If it doesn't turn to hate
It might be love

This is not a test for us

Oh, it's been far too long
Since I have had this much fun
So we'll just wait and see
We'll sing our different keys
And if we're what we both need
We'll fall in love
Track Name: Stuck on You
Baby, my eyes are stuck on you
they're locked, they're glued
nothing to do
Baby, my eyes are stuck on you
Our rendez-vous, nothing to lose

I can't help it
I'm mesmerized
and I can't help it, keeping it inside
I just want you to look at me tonight
I just want you to look me in the eyes

Baby, my eyes are stuck on you
they're locked, they're glued
nothing to do
Baby, my eyes are stuck on you
Our rendez-vous, nothing to lose

I keep hoping that you are right
and I keep holding it inside
I'm not waiting for you to decide
I'm not hesitating
I want you to be mine

Baby, my eyes are stuck on you
they're locked, they're glued
nothing to do
Baby, my eyes are stuck on you
Our rendez-vous, nothing to lose
Track Name: Honey, Honey
Honey, honey kiss me with those eyes
Honey, honey miss me all through the night
Honey, honey kiss me with those eyes
And love me from across the floor

Our eyes meet in between the seas
of people around
The music plays, all the people sway
while you and I drown
If only we could leave our seats

Honey, honey touch me, hold my hand
Honey, honey whisper that you're my man
Honey, honey touch me, hold my hand
and love me from across the floor

Our eyes meet in between the seas
of people around
The music plays, all the people sway
while you and I drown
If only we could leave our seats
Track Name: Rose-Colored Shades
What do I ask for?
Do I expect too much?
I'm wanting affection
I want to feel loved
I give it some time
Maybe you will see
All that you're doing
How it's affecting me

And I see you
Through these rose-colored shades

"I care about you deeply"
I know all this is true
but why is it so easy
for you to get me blue
I wish and wish for fullness
for sweet, sweet sympathy
but all I really get
is bitter continuity

And I see you
through these rose-colored shades

And I still hate you
But I still love you
Because I still see you
through these rose-colored shades
Track Name: Don't Rush Me
I'm not sure yet
Don't know when I'll be
Could you wait for me
or would you clip my wings?
I can't be sure yet
Because I'm not ready
So please don't rush me

I want what's best for you and me
Don't try to control what's happening
I want what's best, not what is easy
It's not easy rushing things
So don't rush me

Why won't you give it up?
Because I'm not happy
Why can't you see
that you're hurting me?
I want to be myself
apart from you and me
I'm just trying to breathe

I want what's best for you and me
Don't try to control what's happening
I want what's best, not what is easy
It's not easy rushing things
So don't rush me

Because I'm easily wrong
Easily hurt, easily pushed down in the dirt
I'm easily torn about what to decide
So please just stay by my side tonight
(I want what's best why can't you see?
I need some time, let me be free)

I want what's best for you and me
Don't try to control what's happening
I want what's best, not what is easy
It's not easy rushing things
So don't rush me
Track Name: Without You
The sunset blinds my eyes
just like the time you said "Goodbye"
But I am driving just fine
just like the way I am tonight

And I can go to sleep and dream soundly
but my dreams are all of you
And I will bend not break
but I'm trying to take each day slowly with you
or rather, without you

The coastline glows at night
and I am doing just fine
Sometimes I want back our life
but "sometimes" is not tonight

And I can go to sleep and dream soundly
but my dreams are all of you
And I will bend not break
but I'm trying to take each day slowly with you
or rather, without you

I'm getting through
I'm doing just fine without you
I'm living my life for something new
This is the last song I'm going to write
that's about you
I'm moving on
I'm breaking new ground
that you're standing on
I'm forging ahead past what is wrong
This is the last song I'm going to write
that's about you

And I can go to sleep and dream soundly
but my dreams are all of you
And I will bend not break
but I'm trying to take each day slowly with you
or rather, without you
Track Name: You Just Smile
What am I doing here?
What won't I say out of fear
of losing a friend
fear of losing again

You just smile
just sit there and smile
You light up the dark

What are we doing here?
3am and you're in my arms
So close because it's dark
so close you feel my beating heart

Don't you go
No, don't you go

I don't know what to say
Come up with a clever line
I just look the other way
Oh no, is that a bad sign?
Are we both in denial?
Please, God, don't let me mess this up
So I just sit there and smile

And you just smile
Just sit there and smile

You light up the dark
