kevin barber I Love Neon and Nude and their debut album! I've been listening since release date to find "the standout track," but ALL these songs are so charming, funny, endearing, and melodic that i cannot pick a favorite.Kate and Leslie are brilliant talents separately, (PennyHawk and Leslie and the Ly's) and together they become incredibly brilliant, much like when the separate cool vehicle pieces come together to form Voltron or some such robot.Lyrics are as clever and sweet as any Cole Porter song Favorite track: You Pretty Thing.

Track Name: Look In Love
I part my hair on the left
I part my hair on the right
Clearly we are separate individuals
But our friends think we still look alike
I wear a white shirt
My shirt is eggshell
I prefer cut-offs, I like a nice hem
Obviously we dress super different

We don’t look alike
We just look in love
If you had what we got you’d look like us too

I wear a blazer
I wear a sports coat
I wear tan socks, I wear light brown socks
Undeniably we are distinct persons
You have blue eyes
You have blue-green eyes
That’s a world of difference

We don’t look alike
We just look in love
If you had what we got you’d look like us too
Track Name: Kiss In The Dark
Please move in we’ve dated for all of two weeks straight
Your place is so small and it's ten whole minutes away
It smells like smoke, but you don’t use cigarettes
And there's never enough three pronged electric outlets
You could sublet to a co-worker, just don’t mention the aggressive raccoons

Then we could go to the market, we could kiss in the dark
We could go tell a neighbor we’re doing fine
Ever since the day, I asked if you wanted to stay
Ever since the day, you became mine

I have pots but no pans
I have lamps but no night stands
We can combine our collections, mix our socks in one drawer
Sign up for a CSA take turns sweeping the floor
If I moved in you’d have to make some extra space
Maybe move your laundry piles to a different place
I've got very dense hair, I’ve been known to clog a drain
Well then I'll switch to bigger pipes to accomodate the mane

Then we could go to the market, we could kiss in the dark
We could go tell a neighbor we’re doing fine
Ever since the day, I asked if you wanted to stay
Ever since the day, you became mine

We’ll need a separate holder for the 2nd toilet tissue
We can agree on a bedtime but here we're having issues
You like quilted and two-ply that’s to linty for me
One-ply that’s like rubbing your self with leaves down there
I got a itch could you scratch it, I got a splinter could you grasp it
You got a cat but I’m allergic, that’s why they invented Zertek
I’ll teach you how to sew if you teach me to bake
Call up the landlord I gotta lease to break

Then we could go to the market, we could kiss in the dark
We could go tell a neighbor we’re doing fine
Ever since the day, I asked if you wanted to stay
Ever since the day, you became mine
Track Name: You Pretty Thing
Stop wearing that shirt in my direction
I sense a strong connection from me to you

Stop wearing those jeans cause its giving me an erection
And I’d like to give affection if you want me to

I’m trying to keep my hands
I’m trying to keep my heart
Away from grabing/holding you
So we never, never part

If you love love like I love love then
Let’s be in love together
If you love love like I love love then
We’ll be in love forever

I’m not quite sure how, but I’m attracted to your eye brows
And I think you look cute with your hair in a braid
Or how you look when you show me something you just made

Skin like a dream boat, the essence of perfection
If I could bottle up your sweetness it’s the scent of a brass section
Playing our song, and I love to hear you harmonize along

If we lived near a bus stop I would take you drinking more
If I had better rhythm I would take you on the dance floor
Ooooooooo
You pretty thing

If you love love like I love love then
Let’s be in love together
If you love love like I love love then
We’ll be in love forever
Track Name: Almost Positive
If you got a disease that took away the use of your knees
forced your life to freeze, depression swarmed you like a gaggle of bees, well

I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around
Cause I can’t stop loving you even when your down

when you buy a house a mile and a half from your parents
and you want me to get a job within a 30 mile radius

I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around
Cause I can’t stop loving you if thou you’ve trapped me in this town

if you had a second secret family, like your on business trips and i am sleeping
your with them i wouldn't guess it, but I get it, and i’m prepared to live with that

I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around
Cause I can’t stop loving you even when you can’t be found

when you make a outfit using fabric from the thrift store and you make a duplicate in my size for me (and 1 for the kitty)

I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around
Cause I can’t stop loving you even when you dress me like a clown

once I thought that i would leave you i told myself i didn’t need you
try my luck in a brand new city
i would pack my things and leave with he kitty
but i didn’t get that far, i didn’t even pack up the car
theirs only one girl for me, you drive me crazy but i’m never ever gonna leave

I’m pretty sure, I’m almost positive I’ll stick around
Cause I can’t stop loving you and i like when your around
Track Name: I'll Try To Improve
If I could wave a wand
And the house could be clean
But you know keeping tidy
Is poisonous to me
I would if I could I'll try To Improve
If there were a phrase
To keep my anxiety at bay
Those would be the first raspy words
I would speak every day

I would if I could I'll try To Improve
So Next time I'm crabby
And I take it out on you
Thanks for loving me through all my doom and gloom
Well maybe we just need a housekeeper
or someone to help you think a little deeper

{breakdown}

When you buy in bulk to save a little money
Or when your honey do list don’t cause your reading a book about our country

maybe we just need more shelves for storing
and a book on tape to keep your hands and eyes on the choring

I'll try To Improve, I’ll try To Improve
So Next time I'm crabby
And I take it out on you
Thanks for loving me through all my doom and gloom
So before we get a divorce
Or before we change our course
The Best I can do is try to improve
Track Name: Lady Toe Tappers
Lets confuse the neighbors we’re just to busy to mow watching from the basement the yard grows out of control and it keeps getting taller and taller
its natures cruelest carpet
and it grows and it grows
what the weeds and grass don’t know that we’re inside tapping toes with a grin putting off giving that garden a trim
but the shame bell that they’re ringing keeps us in time dancing and singing
and lifes to short so lets dance another ditty hold me close while we’re fined by the city we’re terriable terrible neighbors
but we’re talented lady toe tappers
another salad for dinner cause we’re calorie counting but its tator tots and dippers we need constant reward no sign of leaner times
we attempted but we get so bored
we try and we try
truth is thats a lie
we attempt with good intentions snacking though intervientions
its not our fault we just love the salty
But the shame bell that they’re ringing keeps us in time dancing and singing lifes to short so lets dance another ditty hold me close cause you're so pretty
we’re terrible terrible fasters
but we’re talented lady toe tappers
but the shame bell that they’re ringing keeps us in time dancing and singing
and lifes to short so lets dance another ditty hold me close while we’ ask a committee are we terriable terrible people

but we’re talented lady toe tappers
Track Name: Never Trust Men
Never trust men
Never trust men
Never trust men
Never trust men
They will only leave you
and break your heart and cheat on you and never call you anymore <testimony>
They will only leave you and take all your money and never call you anymore
Track Name: Love Makes You Lazy
We used to be more motivated with each other
Well, that was before we shared pillows and covers
Now I wake up and your right next to me snoring
Your making It hard to get up in the morning

So let’s set some ground rules but let’s not go crazy
I like being busy but love makes me lazy
And we get to cuddle when we watch tv
But please make me do something productive this evening

We have to get up at 8 and jog for 3 miles
Unless it’s warm with no breeze or below 50 degrees
We can only eat pizza one day a week
unless its period week and you are cooking for me

instead of tv, instead of tv, instead of tv,
we should read a book
if its good

we might be making too many exceptions
but we got out of bed so lets give ourselves credit
rules need tweaking schedules need to be altered
we’re pretty bad a order, but we’re really good lawyers

now I’ve got my arm around you in the kitchen
but it’s not on the couch so let’s make the revision
we can touch if 6 feet from a cushion
and as long as we’re not in the seated position

we have to limit the time that the tv is on
unless we pre-agree to a marathon
we can go a day without kissing breaks
unless on that day we need a kissing break
and did we mention, and did we mention this is effective
starting 2016, maybe 17
based on your work schedule
or your hair appointments
Track Name: Courthouse
You bought me a ring, well that bought you time
But it don’t mean a thing till I know your mine
Oh’ I’ve been patient (she’s been patient)
I’ve been patient we’ve dated and dated, and waited and waited
But we’d have to Pick a song
and we’d have to pick a date
and who’d wear the dress and who’d wear the suit and who would we get to officiate
whoa’ lets be patient (she’s being patient)
whoa’ lets keep dating and dating (I’m tired of waiting)
who needs all the frillies and the lillies and the speechs lets just calm down and watch a nice film like beaches
if you haven’t noticed we’ve been doing that for years its time for the matrimony to end all my fears
i’ve brain stormed a little for a romantic spot can we even agree where to tie the knot and no-one we know owns a boat or a barn
just rend a shed or a house made of yarn
I’m not very picky i’m a woman of reason
but this needs to happen before another season
whats affordable romantic and approves of my spouse IOWA COUNTY COURT HOUSE
Take me to the courthouse
we’ll Check the box marked spouse
A photo with the judge and a kiss and then we’re out
a new check book a name change more rings on our fingers now that its forever no lusting for strangers
Track Name: It's You
On a short walk, down a long road
I would love to have a hand hold
with you, you, you
nobody but you, you, you
you are so new new new to me

we don’t have to go that far (not that far)
we could even take your car
cause if they’re bugs that are biting
or a storm with lightning
things could get exciting
or a little frightening
we could maybe fall
lets not go at all

after a long week
during a short month
i would love to take some time off
with you, you, you
nobody but you, you, you
you are so new new new to me

we could just quit our jobs (quit our jobs)
find a way to be paid teen heart throbs
we could live simple life
coupon clipping like a housewife
no more fancy fork and knife
i’ll miss internet, eating out and shopping malls
lets not quit at all

some people are crazy in love
we’re reasonably crazy in love
other people get infatuated
for us comparatively thats an understatement

with you, you, you
nobody but you, you, you
you are so cute to me

we could
but we don’t have to
we should
but only if you want to
