about

WILLIAM WITHIN Minneapolis, Minnesota

Originally the solo project of Alex Simpson, WILLIAM WITHIN made the transformation to five-piece band in 2012 with the addition of guitarist Tom Steffes, violinist Derek Rohlf, bassist Matt Blake and drummer Toby Ramaswamy. The group’s sound is filled with unusual guitar tunings, whispery vocals, lush orchestration and genre-bending arrangements. ... more

Track Name: From The Start
Felt free with you
Let my secrets loose
Felt free, felt lust long overdue
I was so seduced
Met you and kept you in my grip
Loved you and slowly watched you slip
For a price, I promised you my all
I spoke too soon while caught up in this trip

Now you're not riding in my car
And all our words are far apart
So should we try to love again
Let's keep it groovy from the start

Long live last year
Let our secrets loose
Felt free, felt anything but fear
I was so seduced
We were
We were so seduced.
Track Name: Backwards
Walked among the animals, stood somewhere in between
Those who like to meditate and those who like to scream
Banging on your door tonight to find out what that means
Tell me it's alright or tell me nothing's as it seems
Yeah, nothing's as it seems

As you wish
Wish you well
You do it backwards; damn near everyone can tell
But do it backwards if it seems to help

Firmly gripped the mic before I ever learned to sing
Only reached for love before the eager days of spring
Summer's sure to end before I get into my swing
So show me all the moves and then just watch me do my thing
Yeah, watch me do my thing.

When the truth begins to show
Baby, I don't want to know
Track Name: Narrate My Nights
Ask me what I dream about, girl
I might let you narrate my nights
I visit oceans made of velvet
Where the boat horns softly blow
Where the monks and masters row
And the beach is quite inviting
To old partners plagued by fighting
And young lovers lost in writing
And you if you'll join me tonight

Ask me what I dream about, girl
I might let you narrate my nights
I fly on airplanes made of looseleaf
Where the drinks are complimentary
And the world seems rudimentary
And my fear of heights is old news
A plane crash leaves a small bruise
And I save you a seat every night

Enter through this mouth, these ears
We can linger in those dreams for years, for years

Ask me what I dream about, girl
I might let you drift away with me

We won't need that paid vacation
We won't need that paid vacation
We won't need that paid vacation
We won't need that paid vacation
You asked and now you know
Track Name: Fall Into Her Uniform
Light beneath the blinds is blue
She spots you in the corner with your weekend crew
Glances turn to stares
She turns to touching up on you

Don't ask
Fall into her uniform
Leave fast
Or fall into her uniform
After all the nights you kept your space
She puts you in your place

Surely she can sense those chills
Surely she can sense you need your free time killed
Up against the light
Beneath that wasted windowsill
Track Name: Your True Colors Won't Blind Me Forever
Woke up with a note upon my bed
Written with the fanciest of pens
It read:
come and find me poolside
I am flirting with the wind
The sun is up and I am down a friend

Woke up with a note upon my bed
Written with the fanciest of pens
It read:
come and find me poolside
I have cheated death again
The sun is up and I am down a friend

The sun is up and I am down
The sun is up and I am down a friend
