lyrics

THIEVES

3 feet was when they made you stow
Each day the unmarked presence known
Over the years of course it grew
Elbowed out seedlings breaking through
So many whispers in your ear
The tendrils strong they persevered
Until there just was no more room
The pressure built until you knew
But the seeing was treason to you

But now but now but now but now...

No more keys for the thieves

Of course you'll peel this line by line
Disavow the image in your mind
But either way you'll feel it close
The beast that you cursed her to host
But in the end this was the plan
You didn't know then but now you can
There's nothing left for you to less
She's putting on her best dress
Swaying out in the west
She's putting on her best dress
Swaying out in the west

But how but how but how but how

No more keys for the thieves
No more keys for the thieves

But now but now but now but now
You come along...

about

Katie Haverly Tucson, Arizona

"A heartrending album that is Katie Haverly's eighth release - Matter adroitly navigates rock, pop, and folk genres, combining jazz sensibilities with poetically introspective lyrics. The gorgeous vocals and tight musicianship pull you in to listen closely, to mull the words, and deeply appreciate the profoundly personal stories she's scribed."

-Jamie Manser, Zocalo Magazine, March 2020
