about

Written and Recorded in Cameron's living room, and Kyle's bedroom between July 2016 and April 2017.

Couch Thoughts is the first full-length release from Hello Joyce.
A jangling, percussive, synth-soaked dream. The tracks within this album loosely flow together with their lyricism, but like usual day-dreamy thoughts one has throughout the day—jump around from one idea to the next. Allow the swirling guitars and twinkling keyboards to take you away for a while, and let your mind slip beneath the cushions.

Track Name: Couch Thoughts
and its me oh me, and I'm quietly patiently waiting,
and the voice in my head rearranges moments

taking a turn for the worst by far,
making things worse then they actually are
I want to live outside myself, I want to live with heart

and its me oh me, and my ego is slowly inflating,
and the thoughts in my head make it hard to forget

taking a turn for the worst by far,
making things worse then they actually are
I want to live outside myself. I want to live with heart.
Track Name: Breathe
I wanna feel okay again
I still hear you laughing in my head

take a breather get out of bed
take a breather forget what she said

I wanna feel your skin again
I still see your eyes in my lids
Track Name: I'm Your Hound
I won't let you down,
not even on the ground,
not even on the ground
you're walking through the clouds,
leaving me earthbound

I can't make a sound
your presence is profound,
your presence is profound,
and when you're not around
I wait like I'm your hound
Track Name: Where She Goes
she looks so pretty in this light,
and I can't keep her off my mind

I don't know where she goes
I don't know where she's gone
I don't know where she goes

her scent lingers in the air
I wonder if she's near

I don't know where she goes
I don't know where she's gone
I don't know where she goes
Track Name: Ceiling
staring at the ceiling and my thoughts are racing again,
but I can't run fast enough
I can't run nearly enough

I know how I feel about you now

Staring at the ceiling watching the fan go round,
and this dust in my eye makes me want to cry,
and this dust in my eye

I know how I feel about you now
I can't keep you around
Track Name: Hanging Heavy
drifting in and out of my dreams,
and everything falls apart at the seams so it seems

I've been awake for far to long
my eyes are hanging heavy my head is gone

existing or falling out, out of time,
and everything sits alone just to think

I've been awake for far to long
my eyes are hanging heavy my head is gone
Track Name: Getting Fatter
look in the mirror, you're getting ugly
doesn't matter much to me
you're getting fatter, thank you wendy,
this is how its gonna be

cause I never went to a doctor
this temple doesn't mind

open the windows, its getting smokey
these cigarettes are killing me
call your granny, she's getting worried
about the man that you will be

but I never went to a doctor
this temple doesn't mind
Track Name: Midnight Snack
are you hungry for love?
have you had enough?
is this plenty for you?
will I suffice?
will I do?

you can't sleep at night
even though you went to bed at nine
you can't sleep at night
walking around with your wondering eyes

are you humbly part of?
have you packed up your stuff?
you look awfully blue to me
are you sick or are you lonely?

you can't sleep at night
even though you went to bed at nine
you can't sleep at night
walking around with your wondering eyes
Track Name: Strange Year
occasionally, I'm living in my strange dreams
in reality, they're slowly moving away from me

but I can't let you, I won't let you go
since I was a boy you've been my goal

constantly, I live for you subconsciously
for you are me, and we were always meant to be

but I can't let you, I won't let you go
since I was a boy you've been my goal
