about

Speak Low If You Speak Love Westland, Michigan

Fusing elements of Evan Weiss-laden melodies with the pop sensibility of Taylor Swift, SLIYSL produces a genuinely new outlook on the cliché acoustic scene. Not only does SLIYSL refuse to cut lyrical corners, but each song is crafted with its own unique identity. With bare-boned and blunt story telling, Graham extends listeners a personal invitation into the melancholy world he calls home. ... more

Track Name: Big Mouth - Northbound
You don't know the half of it,
and if I ever tried to explain,
you'd say I'm full of shit.

I'm full of nothing but complaints,
and I've been staying up all night,
and sleeping through the whole fucking day.

So, shut up about how much I need to change.
Just shut up.

I'm so shallow it's disgusting,
I'm so spoiled it's insane.
Everything I've ever needed is sitting on a silver plate,
right outside my window.
If I could only go and grab it,
but see I've got this set of rules that says I don't leave my mattress ,
till about 4pm.

So shut up,
Just shut up.
I need to learn to shut my stupid fucking mouth.

I need to learn to shut my stupid, overactive, pessimistic, mouth.
Track Name: Sophomore Slump - Northbound
When I was in the 10th grade,
I loved a girl from across the sea.
She had a pretty accent,
But she never really liked me.
You never really liked me.

But, I was only 16.
I'm getting stoned a lot.
I'm only 16,
I smoked in my car and then I dropped you off.

Skipping school a lot.
And hang out in vacant parking lots.
We'd drive out to the beach but you faked a stupid stomach ache,
and embarrassed me for the 100th time.
I can't believe your grip was so tight on me.

But, I was only 16.
I'm getting stoned a lot.
I'm only 16,
I panicked in my car then I dropped you off.

You made me kiss your feet.
'Cause I was your bitch and you let me know frequently.
Never again will you see me,
I'd hope to god that you please just forget me again.
Track Name: Ryan & I Are Full Of Shit - Northbound
You said I'd be better off if I never knew your name.

I've got some shaky cigaratte hands,
but I guess they'll do.
I've got some shaky cigaratte hands,
but they found you.

I will always be this alone.
And you can't stay mad forever.
But, maybe you can.

I'm growing my hair back out of spite,
and there's nothing that you or anyone can do,
to make me change my mind.

I've been drowning in the deep end,
just to get to you.
Yeah I've been drowning in the deep end,
and I still haven't found you.

I won't always be this alone.
And you can stay mad forever.

I will always be this broken,
but someday soon I'm gonna get over you,
and drive around the country once again.
Track Name: Thirty - Speak Low If You Speak Love
I'll never be anyone's best friend cause I don't know how to let them in,
but I might hide behind a song or two.
You said if I'm not married by the time I turn 30 maybe we can get hitched,
but I don't want to be your substitute.

I'm tired of death, I'm tired of love, too.
I'm sick of people dying, I'm sick of people trying to get in.

Today a friend asked if I could carry his casket,
but I hope I never have to.
Because I don't know how to deal with death and I don't know what comes after,
when we go to sleep.

I'm tired of death, I'm tired of love, too.
I'm sick of people dying, I'm sick of people trying to get in.
Track Name: Next Year - Speak Low If You Speak Love
They try to pry me from my room but I won't listen.
They say there;s so much out there that I'm missing.
Well, I would rather watch a movie in bed alone,
Or pretend I didn't hear the ringing of my phone.

I've been trying really hard
not to sleep on my right arm.
All my friends they laugh because they don't know who they are,
I can brush it out, but my hair still looks like yarn.

I just don't have the strength to cut it off yet,
I'm just not happy with the way my year's been.

I complain to anyone who will listen,
and if I want a compliment I'll go fishin'.
I'm low and I'm sure it shows because my hair is as dirty as my clothes.

I just don't have the strength to cut it off,
I'm just not happy with the way my year's gone.

And honestly, I think I like being sad,
It's a narrative of everything I never had.
That's why I smile when I put on my cap,
Just knowing what's underneath my hat.

So when I finally cut it off it'll be for me,
And maybe next year I'll be happy.
Track Name: Haircut For Christmas - Speak Low If You Speak Love
Remember when you made me cut my hair?
When you knew it was the only thing that made me happy.
And I know it's a silly thing to be bitter about,
But can you blame me for that?
Remember when you said life wasn't fair?
But I was sick and tired of being miserable.
And in hindsight I know nothing changed,
But it was worth the risk.

Cause it's a risk being alone when you don't know where your next kiss will come from.

You gave me one more thing to complain about
as if I wasn't already pathetic as is.
You became one more girl to forget about
as if there wasn't already a list.

Remember when I said I didn't love you?
Well I remember when I did.
It's okay, your mother never liked me anyway,
because we prayed in different ways for our sins.

You gave me one more thing to complain about
as if I wasn't already pathetic as is.
You became one more girl to forget about
as if there wasn't already a list.

I'm growing my hair back out of spite.
There's nothing that you can do this time.
