It could just take a minute To tell you my whole life I’m in a corner I’m running I’m running out of time You’ll never see me again My friend We’re up against a mountain Approaching the dam Waters are rising We could take your fall Never ever come home Don’t know where you go Say you’re never far Afterall I dial up your home From where I come from I could feel so small I could feel nothing at all You say I’ll call you back tomorrow Hope it’ll be okay You say

Are you comfortable with annunciation? Image in your mind It only gets so far when you’re unprotected Please begin with me, do you wanna see? Do you wanna see your own identity suspended? Are you comfortable with annunciation? An image in your mind Feels so far when you're unprotected Find that common thread What’s the use in it? Around the bend nothings broken Nothing’s broken Are you comfortable with annunciation? Image in your mind It gets so far when you’re unprotected You could change your mind You could change your mind

Buffy Sainte-Marie plays Here and there pale Valencia oranges - I just got it This must be the place Origin signifies a name And that’s it Simple, I like it We’re late to our little apartment It’s not you I’m angry with How close from here do you think the ocean is? Overhead, a bright white page A thought half forms I’ve pined so long for— the name escapes A few more years, and then the weight will be replaced Can you hear that old man running? He won’t make it back Walled in by cypresses the next three years are coming simple, a name escapes What is his pain like? He thinks about it enough on his own time... The next few years are comin Did you see an old man runnin? The few years are coming Overhead a bright white page... [chorus] Can you hear that old man runnin? He won’t make it back... Buffy Sainte-Marie plays.

Street lights Fill my room I finally have A place with a view Told me You'd say hi I’m sitting here Cars passing by You’re not used to staying close I get it Might not be the type to jump right in this But in my head In my head I guess never Saw an end Saw an end It was you and me forever Climb up Seven flights Alone on the roof Middle of the night Packing for A long trip I don’t want to leave The city like this You’re not used to staying close I get it Might not be the type to jump right in this But in my head In my head I guess never Saw an end Saw an end It was you and me forever

If you go Go later on I could lie here til the sun goes down Into my arms Isn’t that far Could you stay with me til the stars come out? Falling back Into a dream I found a place you’re here with me Memory In golden hour Pieces of you reflecting

about

Quarter-Life Crisis is a collaboration between Ryan Hemsworth and various artists who’ve come to prominence over the past couple of years, many of whom got their start playing scrappy DIY shows. The self-titled debut EP released on December 4th, 2020 features contributions from Frances Quinlan (Hop Along), Meg Duffy (Hand Habits), Charlie Martin (Hovvdy), Yohuna, and Claud. It showcases Hemsworth in a new phase of his career, one that is perhaps a bit less indebted to the nightclub dance floor. “It’s always been a goal to mix, like, 25% electronic sounds and 75% live indie rock sounds,” he says. Collaboration is paramount to Hemsworth’s process, and though he produced all of the instrumentation on the album, he left the lyrics and intention of the song up to the contributors. The resulting collection shapeshifts from track-to-track, taking on new personalities as it moves between artists.
