Stuck on You 02:47
I know you're not so good with words You're not too good with memories So I'll try to sing Slowly It was an odd seventeenth day Of the first month before midnight I read you my favourite book You didn't care about the book And then you closed the chapter on me Oh won't you please please teach me How you keep from getting so sticky? I thought your love was true I thought I was right for you I gave you all my glue Now I'm stuck , now I'm stuck, now I'm stuck On you Life is meaningless, I read There's nothing new under the sun I said And you said come lie down with me You'll see Trembling and unable to bear This new awakening only we shared I cried as you faded away From me Ooh won't you please please teach me How you keep from getting so sticky? I thought your love was true I thought I was right for you I gave you all my glue Now I'm stuck , now I'm stuck, now I'm stuck I didn't know what to do I thought I was right for you I gave you all my glue Now I'm stuck, now I'm stuck, now I'm stuck On you Selina Boland (c)2019

The Cold 03:29
Please don't leave me I'm not ready To say goodbye To let you see me cry Please don't leave me We were just so close I'm not ready For the cold For the cold For the cold For the cold For the cold For the cold For the cold Please don't tell me This is the last time You'll ever kiss me Upon my forehead I can smell your scent I can feel your love Wrapped around my body Wrapped around my soul But now it's cold It's so cold It's so cold And you're so cold You're so cold You're so cold Please don't call me When you're with your new friend I know how this goes I know how this ends This ends with the cold With the cold With the cold This ends with the cold With the cold With the cold I just let myself Get too close to you I just let myself Get too close to you I always let myself Get too close to you And your cold Selina Boland (c) 2019

Out of Touch 03:02
I like to walk to work in the morning sun I feel like I'm heading somewhere bright And when I arrive I don't have much to say I'm busy thinking about your light And I think I think too much yeah I might be out of touch and I wonder if you think about this too I take the long way home I don't have much to do I stop talk to groundhogs in their holes And I tear down danger signs for pest control Do people even have a soul? And I think I think too much yeah I might be out of touch and I wonder if you think about this too Cuz lately I've stopped to wonder How many times you've wondered How it would feel to have me under you Touch me..won't you? Feel me..won't you? Hold me..won't you? And I think I think too much yeah I might be out of touch and I wonder if you think about this too Selina Boland (C) 2019

Rearranges 02:59
Mmmmm Wait I've got something to say Hate Time is slipping away Why Should I be the first to move My Heart has nothing to prove But my mind never changes It just rearranges on me My mind never changes It just rearranges on me Hope I have hope Eternal hope No matter how bad It gets You'll always forgive My debts Cuz your love never changes It just rearranges on me Your love never changes no It just rearranges on me And now I cry out to you Hoping that you'll come down Hoping that you'll come through Hoping Hoping It's all I do It's all I do Wait I've got nothing to say Selina Boland (C)2019

I could pretend that he's living just down the street Waiting for a call from me telling him we should meet I could commend him if he spoke more honestly But in the end he would still end up hurting Me Me I could pretend that I didn't give my love again To another boy who would take it for granted I could defend a good reason to hold his hand If we were walking through Paris As we had once planned Planned But I'd rather believe in cold hard facts I'd rather believe he's not coming back I could measure this and I could measure that We could measure this and we could measure But I'd rather believe in cold hard facts I could pretend that he didn't fly far away To let somebody else lie beside him where I once lay I could pretend that I'm not another casualty In his very long winded unstable love story Love story But I'd rather believe in cold hard facts I'd rather believe he's not coming back I could measure this and I could measure that We could measure this and we could measure But I'd rather believe in cold hard facts I met a boy he was lost and destroyed and he had nothing I met a boy he was lost and destroyed and he had nothing to give But cold hard facts Cold hard facts But I'd rather believe in cold hard facts I'd rather believe he's not coming back I could measure this and I could measure that We could measure this and we could measure But I'd rather believe in cold hard facts Selina Boland (c) 2019

The economy is crashin' Your gadgets are lashin' Out on you Into a big blue screen A big blue sky That you've never seen Why Everything is old Everything is cold Everything is grey Everything is gonna decay uh oh uh oh uh oh uh oh Your autonomy is flashin' Before your eyes start clashin' Symbols where Nothing in life seems fair And they don't care that you can do it all Everyone is mean Everyone obscene Everyone is bad And you are so sad All you need is just to breathe with me All you need is a dose of fantasy I dedicated my hands To God this morning so I can't Write anything That I want to If I could I think that I would Write some things that I should Not write to you Maybe you could try this sometime Just don't always say everything that's on your mind It's not always good stuff that I wanna hear And it's not always edifying to my ears And did you know What you focus on increases All you need is just to breathe with me All you need is a dose of fantasy All you need is just to believe with me All you need is a dose of reality If you would just believe Maybe you would come out From your cloud If you would just believe Maybe you would see me And sing out loud If you would just believe Maybe you would come out From your cloud If you would just believe Maybe you would see me And sing out loud If you would just believe Maybe you would come out From your cloud If you would just believe Maybe you would see me And sing out loud The economy is crashin' Selina Boland (c) 2019

about

Raw, genuine, and more than simply a "touch of the Atlantic Ocean breeze", The Cold documents the ups and downs experienced after significant loss while still offering hope in the midst of the darkness.

The Cold was ironically recorded in the month of December during snow storms, snow squalls, and sideways snow showers that only Newfoundland natives could possibly understand. In one of the takes, the wind could be heard howling outside my shaky windows. I would have kept it all in there, but ambulance sirens could be heard in the distance and it became quite distracting. This album was like writing in my journal, and recording it alone from the privacy of my own home allowed me to be as genuine as possible.
