about

The latest single from Daisy O’Connor’s band is pretty much the song of social distancing. Recorded at Public Hi-Fi (aka “the Spoon studio”) before quarantine, they didn’t realize how relevant the song would become to lonely hearts around the globe. “Is it wrong? / is it right? / can I be your evergreen tonight?” Daisy lilts the question we ask ourselves when deciding if connection is worth the risks involved.

Evergreen is a song for the green part in all of our hearts- the part that is always a beginner, that never quite gets the calculations right with love. As we continue the seemingly endless walk around the block that is the “together-alone” lifestyle, may this song be with you to shine some light through the darkness.

lyrics

Women want to smell like flowers
Men like the taste of me
I roam alone for hours
Under magnolia leafs
Find myself by your front door
Under the cottonwood trees
Cactus fence and concrete
Do you still want me?

Is it wrong, is it right
Can i be your evergreen tonight?
Its wrong and its right, wrong and its right
Is it wrong, is it right
Make me your evergreen tonight
Its wrong but its right, so wrong that its right

I go to the edge of sunlight
I always stop in the shade
Where we wrote our names in sidewalk
Spelled out in retrograde
I fell for your first smile
And deeper every day
You live out in the bright lights
While I dim the light that left in me

Chorus

Maybe if I showed a little more skin
You'd break me in
I’m in the cave again
Tryna fake like we’re just friends
Maybe if I shaved my legs again
You’d take me in
Maybe if i felt like I wasn’t a sin

Chorus

Its wrong but its right
So wrong that its right
