Vanilla Blue is the first of many new releases from Alex Bent + the Emptiness in 2017.


I’m just trying to love you / Umbrella for the rain clouds / You won’t hold me like you used to / Ground I walk cursed now / Tryin’ to hold on to a feeling / Building sandcastles / I need something to believe in / We feel fragile / I’m too vanilla / You’re too blue / I play the villain / It’s what you’re used to / I beg to differ / Pack up my business / Walking the way home / Roaming the pillars / Pick up your crayons / Color my feelings / Paint it vanilla / But you choose blue / Oh, when I pick you up, tell Jesus Christ I made it / There’s something about tonight that makes it hard for me to fake it / If it’s your mind that hates me, then your eyes still like the view / I never fell from heaven, I just fell out of love with you / Sometimes I can feel the heat coming from the sunrise / I can feel us slip, I’m stuck on the outside / Dim the lights, I fade away / ‘brella out, it rains today / Hold her, control her / You shoot me like a soldier / You’re blue.
