about

Telomeres Gainesville, Florida

Combining intricately picked acoustic guitar with unique percussion and subtle psychedelia, TELOMERES' confessional song- writing feels expansive yet intimate. Think Nick Drake meets Animal Collective.

TELOMERES thrives in near-silent rooms, where climaxing builds can dissolve into vulnerable hushes.

Track Name: Thick Woods
Thick woods,
The kind that I grew up in,
In my head now.
I walk the trails for nothing.

But I don’t want to die
Before I’ve felt you fully,
Before I’ve held your pearls
In my palm tightly.

Maybe you let your dress down fully,
And slowly crawling towards me.
Every moment before me
Is building up to now.

Maybe no one’s known what to do with you,
How to be true and encourage the same.

Fields of wheat,
My fingers trailing gently.
Oh, to lie down
And be swallowed up completely.
But I don’t want to die
Before I’ve felt you fully,
Before I’ve held your pearls
In my palm tightly.

Maybe you let your dress down fully,
And slowly crawling towards me.
Every moment before me
Is building up to now.

You gotta be something to me.
You’re gonna be something to me.

Maybe no one’s known what to do with you.
How to be true and encourage the same.
Track Name: Older
I thought I knew what I wanted when
I was younger
Only to grow or
So I convinced myself.

But I’m as young now
As I was then
I’m just a little older.

Things don’t just melt away.
They build up, build up, build up.

Build up.

And as you step off your branch I just
Need you to know me.
I need you to know me.

Know me.
Track Name: Arrow
Oh, circumstances
Hiding behind doors.
Open the cabinet,
They fall to the floor.

And yes, I’m sorry
When I don’t show my best side,
But why do you act so
Surprised?

Don’t send me packing.
Yes, I can change.
Or is my love just an arrow
Misaimed?

Way out of your city,
Further still out of your mind.
Pleading with your lips to
Comply.

Don’t stand there packing.
Yes, I can wait.
Or is my love just an arrow
Misaimed?

Don’t send me packing.
Yes, I can change.
Or is my love just an arrow
Misaimed?

Way out of your city.
Further still out of your mind.
Track Name: Spreading Arms As If You're Fully Feathered
All your colors
Didn’t need me to tell them
How radiant they were
Blowing in the wind
When I showed you my childhood
And you understood.

Now spreading arms as if you’re fully feathered,
Terrified of feeling untethered.

I thought I saw you sleeping
So at peace with everything
Until you started shaking,
Until I woke you up.

Well, I got tired of being your alarm
When you just wanted 5 more minutes
Of blissful heroine, shedding everything you’ve built up,
Built up to hate
Then staring in the mirror,
Forgetting all your
Insecurities
But you were drunk and soon to cry on the toilet
Until you let me in
And you said, “You’re too good for me. I don’t deserve you.”
And I said, “You don’t love yourself enough to even let me love the scraps of what I see when I turn over in the middle of the night, wrap my arm around your waist and you don’t wake save to wrap your arm back around my wrist.”

Where are we going, never to return
Before it’d all be different anyway?
With vaguely reminiscent streets,
Yet you remember their names.

Where are we going, never to return again?
People pat us on our backs for leaving all we know.
Where are we going never to return again?
Here we go.
Track Name: Circles
Just run in circles and give it meaning.
Then give me something worth repeating.

Or maybe this is the best that I’ll get.

And who will I be when I grow up?
And how will I know when I’ve shown up?

Or maybe this is the best that I’ll get.

And what have I got?
As the sun comes up behind the window.
And what do I want that’s not in front of me?
It’s all that I got.

And who will I be when I grow up?
And how will I know when I’ve shown up?

Or maybe this is all that I need.
