about

Little Lives is the first EP released by Suitcase Runaway. It contains slightly done up versions of previous single releases as well as two more songs added on!

"The Little Lives EP possesses great heart and even greater storytelling, yet it only scratches the surface of what Suitcase Runaway can do. What he will be able to do with an even wider expanse of sound to pair with his well-spun words will be interesting, and hopefully we’ll be hearing it soon enough."

Track Name: Vietor (The Wind)
When the room comes crashing down, I will stay
Outside, out of the way
Inside the warmth of my veins
Pure emotion threatens to lay waste
To what's left of me, what's left of me

I run free

When the wind rises, I stand, tall and strong
Beside myself I belong
Within the silence I want
To scream bloody murder, and live on
With what's left in me, what's left in me

I run free

I fly with the wind, kick the dirt up, get scrapes on my knees
There's no rest for me in this moment there's joy that I see
No time to think, just have to run, just have to find my way out
My heart will never know fear, it will never know doubt

oh oo woah, oh oo woah oh
Track Name: Painkillers
Can anyone please answer these questions I implore
My mind is stuck here on the couch, but my body's halfway out the door
And you and me watch newsreels from the night before
A plane crashed in the ocean and the UN's tryin' to stop another war

oh oh ho oh

The morning is so calm and soft and the sunlight calls my name
And your whistling in the hallway is such a sweet refrain
That I can replay over and over again, inside my little head
Somethin' to keep me grounded as the anchorman speaks of the dead

oh oh ho oh

And all we can see is darkness even though the sun may shine bright today
And if you try to look happy you're considered selfish in your ways
But nothin's ever gonna get better unless there's somthin' to kill the pain
Yeah nothin's ever gonna get better unless we all help to ease the pain
Oh your sweet refrain

I walk into the morning haze and see the moon and sun
one is growing dimmer as the other kills it's only love
And the two of them watch in silence the world coming undone
A failing love to compliment the tragedy, their only son

oh oh ho oh

(refrain)
Track Name: Velveteen Rabbits
Velveteen rabbits runnin' through the trees. They ran so fast they couldn't be seen. They've been loved so much they've been set free, oh. Why couldn't they have invited me, ohh

And people ruffle my hair, and put me in despair, and they say it's all a dream, but it's nothing like I've ever seen. Woah, I told you so

REFRAIN: And look who's laughing now, laughing now. Oh the look on your face when you wonder how, and the joy in your smile when the sun comes out, and the warmth of your love goin' all about, and the circle of life dancing upside down, but it suddenly stops when you frown, ohh when you frown yeah, so turn yourself around.

Canopy of tunnels stretchin' underground. Only the rabbits can find their way by sound. They feel the hum of the earth beneath their feet oh. They have that reputation of unconventionality ohh.

People ruffle myy hair, and put me in despair, and they say it's all a dream, but it's nothing like I've ever seen. Woah I told you so
(refrain)

Turn yourself around!

Woah oh oh oh oh...woah oh oh oh ohhh...woah oh oh oh oh ahh.

Here comes the piercing light of daybreak, as I run faster up each and every stair, and your standing atop a thirty story building. I tried to catch you but I wasn't even there!

Wasn't even there, ahhh, YEAH!

Oh the look on your face when you wonder how, and the joy in your smile when the sun comes out, and the warmth of your love goin' all about, and the circle of life dancing upside down, but it suddenly stops when you frown, when you frown yeah, so turn yourself around.
Track Name: Forgotten
I've forgotten what it's like to hold my own
and I've forgotten what it's like to hear your voice on the phone
What it's like to mend my own soul
Looping the stitches through one by one

ohhhh ooooo oooo

Illuminated windowsills spell out my dreams
The latch is jammed and the glass is thick so I let out a silent scream
And I wait until the fall of night like a criminal in chains
So I can stare out all the windowsills and see my shrouded pain

ohhhh ooooo oooo

We carry ourselves oh so well
But everyone has stories hell
some may be just lies
And I want so badly to break the glass
But another story blocks my path
I'm afraid of what might be outside

Oh what might be outsiiiiiide oo wooah ohh oo wooah
Track Name: The Family
Some kids grow up in filthy city alleys
while others grow up in a house.
Some kids go to school while others play hookey
either way life’ll chew ya up and spit you out

Well it doesn’t matter where the hell you came from, sister
it’s the same set of emotions inside everyone

Some kids have a sweet mother, but a drunkard of a daddy
Some kids have it the other way around
Some kids gotta live with an uncle or auntie
or worse in some lonely foster home

Well it doesn’t matter where the hell you came from, brother
everybody must fight for their chance in the sun

We’ve created some kind of messed up civil war
Stop fighting kids, you’ve gotta stick together now
and show the world that nothing can bring you down
Breaking all the front lines, deserted battlefields galore
Stop fighting this silly game of he said she said
You gotta be brave enough to pick up the pieces
Oh woah oh oh oh, woah oh oh oh…

Some kids lose their hearts and become bitter it’s quite saddening
They curl up in a ball and feel like death
Then there’s the kids who try to make everyone happy
But they too are struggling like the rest

So sing along to this battle cry whenever you feel low
or lonely or mad or messed up in the head
‘Cause this misery that we all share we can laugh about tomorrow
No more poison hearts for us good times instead

Well it doesn’t matter where the hell you came from…
