about

"Gasp" is the the 5th record Joshua Jesty has written and recorded during the month of February. This year he took some liberties in adding a few other songs that were on the verge of falling into the abyss otherwise. Please enjoy and spread to friend.

credits

released February 28, 2013

Thank you Mike Miles for telling me to write some love songs, in some weird way, the more I wrote "love songs" the more I realized what I had to let go of in the loss department and what I had in store for me once I started realizing what exactly it was that I wanted. Thanks K for popping in for the last minute inspiration, thanks Mom for your endless support, thanks Hazel for being a cute as hell bunny, thanks Mike, Joshua, Bob, Horchy, Tom (can't misspell your last name if I don't use it), Missy, Matt, Dan, and Evan for backing me up and being amazing musicians and friends, and thank you to everyone who takes these songs and makes them a part of their experience, that means the world to me.

All songs written, recorded, arranged, performed and mixed by Joshua Jesty save for

Saxophone: Jim Metzendorf
Cello: Tara Hanish
Violin: Andrea Belding

(Tara and Andrea appear courtesy of Seafair, and that band (as well as many others in the Cleveland area) absolutely rule. Check them out too.

Track Name: I'll push you away
how should I know
if you want any part of me
if you follow your heart
it's just a trail of arteries
and you
in my arms with your glasses on
still don't seem to manage to see
you're the only one I want
you're the only one I want
as the night ends
I'll push you away
I get the sinking feeling you don't want me to stay
Track Name: Super Want!
I hope she wants to know me, cause I don't think I can play this game
the one where we pretend that maybe and certainty are the same

I will walk the fine line, between lust and hope
I will set myself up, to get knocked down so low
does she see the signs, the she was looking for
I just need her to know

I have never wanted anyone so damn much

I wonder if she feels the spark, that I feel when we lock our eyes
it's a mystery to me I need to solve before I go and lose my mind
Track Name: just ignore it
life don't make a lost of sense
neither did you
guess in the end my friend
I liked your lies better than your truth

when all your problems stack so high they sway
give it that sweet silence baby

and it'll go, it'll go, it'll go away

so go and do that little dance
the one you do at night
where you lay around unable to sleep
wondering why

just ignore it baby
Track Name: she doesn't know
something in her eyes, makes me feel so sad
I can see that spark, that I'll never have
oh sure she smiles at me, as she passes by
but she won't give me any time

woah is me, if only longing could move the sea

she doesn't know, she doesn't know, she doesn't know
how she breaks my heart

she still has my heart, no it's not all bad
if there is another, I'll come and take it back
but I have my doubts, someone will come by
who gives me that kind of high

woah is me, if only longing, could make her see
Track Name: alone
I don't like the way it don't come together
when our schedules say we can't align
I don't like the way the clock moves so slowly
cause its your arms I want the clocks arms are no friend of mine

I like to be alone with you

I don't like the wait, the money, or the weather
cause I don't think they show me what I need to know
I don't like the times that we have to sever
cause I've yet to find a good way, to let go

somewhere in the feast of your body
is a connection I need to feel
cause everything else seems a bit to gawdy
yeah not much here seems real
so if you see fit to let me in
don't see fit to let me go
cause you fit where the others left a hole

I don't like the way we never get ahead
we just always get pushed to the back of the line
I don't even know what we're standing here for
when we can sneak off and go somewhere and hide
Track Name: atlantis
you're just as lost, just as confused
as all those other fools
but you don't seem to give a damn
about anything other than
what you feel, what is true
that's what I love about you
let's

take it slow, take it so slow, take it so slow til time stops

and we fall down in sheets that get so soaked that we
can pretend we're in atlantis
and no one can call us, and no one can write
and you're right by my side
oh you're right next to me

there's an angel, in your heart
and there's a devil , in those other parts
and you've been hurt, but you keep moving
you don't give up, you don't see ruin
Track Name: eyes like vines
I could stay on this static filled phone
if you were on the other line
talking of death and bad dreams
and telling jokes all night

la de dah, I feel into your green eyes
la de dah, they grew on me like vines
la de dah, I want to hear your secrets
la de dah, I hope you're one of mine

I wonder at times what you're thinking
and I hope you start to find
any excuse or reason
to invite me inside
Track Name: if ever
you and I make for
the odd pairing
I'll be the secret
that's not worth sharing

someone went and messed with your precious heart I've seen it all
drowning all the anger and bullshit with pills and alcohol
I will give you my word that if you're falling down, I'm here for you
if ever if ever, you need that


let's pretend that no
one can infiltrate
this little hideaway of
blankets and pillows we made

go and hide, but come back soon
go and hide, but come back soon, I miss you
Track Name: where I started again
go and place your bets, I know how this one plays out
think so much about your debts, and you're focused on the same route

putting your heart, into things that fall apart with time

we spin round in circles, you raise my thought and then
I'm right back down to where I started again

what was the point of that? if we all know how this one plays out
I like what I see deep in your eyes, don't pretend you have no doubts

when this world falls apart
I won't be
sorry that I held you close
I won't regret
the paths we both chose
and I'm not done loving you
Track Name: so nice
you got me throwing things away
I don't like that part of it
I think you have fun making me wait
I don't like that part of it

who else are you auditioning for that coveted part?
the one who you'll let in to play with your heart

oh I, will treat you so nice baby

sometimes I don't know what to say
I don't like that part of it
time moves so slow when you don't stay
I don't like that part of it

is this the part where you let others come and weight in?
I don't need anyone's thought when we're so close swaying

don't you hate it when things get tied up?
no?
is that so?

sometimes you're all that's on my mind
I don't like that part of it
when you say you want love yet I'm not deep in your eyes
I hate that

there's a part of me that wants a piece of you
but I more than want all the other parts too

I would treat you so nice baby
Track Name: plane crash, salvation, your body
your soul got stuck in this body for a little while
tell a few jokes and get out before it gets to wild

every plane will crash, every passenger will drown
that's about the way I felt until you came around

I find salvation in the curves of your body

your soul got stuck in this body for a little while
have a few kids and get out before it gets to wild

everything is worthless yet the greedy want it anyway
I don't want anything other than lying in bed with you all day

if you were in a plane then love would be in the air for me
if you're down with that let's put the botch in debauchery

I find salvation in the curves of your body
Track Name: for your birthday I forgot
you made my whole life a drag
think your heart was on the rag

fuck you alo o o o o ot
for your birthday I forgot

maybe you found happiness
seems you were always gunning for less

forgot all the bullshit we went through
forgot how you'd always put the blame on me not you
forgot how you fucked me up emotionally for a year or two

the thought of you is still in my brain
it's the thought of me strangling you in the rain

so when you go to sleep at night
just know I wish the best for you in your miserable life
Track Name: fuckin' around
doesn't it seem like
we put people in charge
who say they'll help us out
but then they're just fucking around

so then we pick a side
and make a bunch of noise
how can you make it right
if you're just fucking around

that's enough of that

I met a girl one time
who knocked my heart around
I thought she was the one
but she was just fucking around

I lost a year or two
just pining for her touch
it wouldn't have meant so much
if I knew we were fucking around

that's enough of that

I'm not gonna take this seriously, ever again

at the end of the day
isn't all that we want
a situation where
we can all just be fucking around

maybe we shouldn't lie
maybe we shouldn't pretend
cause I'm sure in the end
this life is just for fucking around
Track Name: you should fall in love with me
you should fall in love with me
I'll hold you when you're feeling down
I'll make the funny faces and play the clown
you should fall in love with me

you should fall in love with me
I'm not the really jealous type
come and go but always know you're welcome by my side
you should fall in love with me

time isn't on our side
nor was it ever
but when our paths collide
I feel a whole lot better

you should fall in love with me
I'm not much for the holidays
let's celebrate the moments we get in this messed up place
you should fall in love with me

you should fall in love with me
even if we only fall apart
you'll always have a space inside my twisted heart
you should fall in love with me

you should fall in love with me
Track Name: I like kissing you
I like kissing you
I like running my hands up and down your back
feels like the first and the very last gasp
I'll ever take each time

hey there enigma
I wanna spin you round and round and round
hey there vampire
I wanna spin you round and round and round

I like kissing you
I like running my hands up and down your back
take the blues I feel and make them black
throw some stars in and call it a night

hey there actress
I wanna spin you round and round and round
hey there bad dancer
I wanna spin you round and round and round
round and round and round

I like kissing you
I like running my hands up and down your back
falling for you like some hopeless sap
god help me you feel like home
