lyrics

i believe i have loved you the best i knew how
in old world maps and darkened thunderclouds
in candlelit caverns devoid of sound
you always meant to leave me i know it now

a shackle,
i cannot be an anchor or harbor at sea
a yoke that is heavy is me.
a burden, a beast

like a man swallowing kerosene
in the intersection he breathes
and ive nowhere left to lean
no steady gaze or dream

you got up from your seat
unsteadied and easily
turned your back to leave
left me with the wind wallowing

a shackle,
i cannot be an anchor or harbor at sea.
a yoke that is heavy is me.
a burden, a beast

i believe i have loved you the best i knew how
in old world maps and darkened thunderclouds
in candlelit caverns devoid of sound
you always meant to leave me i know it now

about

COYOL Los Angeles, California

COYOL is a collision of the old Southwest and the new Los Angeles. A seemingly contradictory duo, COYOL is a beautiful juxtaposition between polished and poignant vocalist, Celeigh Champan, and unrefined, avant-garde artist, John Isaac Watters.
