about

"We're both on this deathbed, only nobody's dead yet and I'm lying next to you, and I don't know what to do." This is the sound of a relationship dying. A universal feeling, an ere, an all too familiar feeling that you just can't do this anymore.

"Deathbed", the title track and 3rd single from J. Graves' forthcoming Deathbed EP, is writhing with pain, loss, frustration all while the entire song crescendos and culminates for one final admission of defeat, a concession, a death.

The songs "Time Travel" and "Deathbed" will release consecutively with two cyclical music videos that can be started in any order and will loop infinitely. This is a symbol of the cycles we experience in life, relationships, and with our own self-discovery.

As with all the songs on 'Deathbed', Graves wrote "Time Travel" while releasing her debut LP, 'Marathon', and while her relationship was crumbling around her. The Deathbed EP was engineered and mixed by Elly Swope at Destination Universe! and was mastered by Amy Dragon of Telegraph Audio. This EP was engineered completely by amazing women.

lyrics

Deathbed

We’re both on this deathbed
Only nobody’s dead yet
And I’m lying next to you
And I don’t know what to do

And it’s not a problem
Until it’s a problem
And nobody wants them
But everyone’s got them
And I’m lying next to you
And I don’t know what to do

And I’m not gonna call it
If you’re not gonna call it
But that’s what we wanted
So why don’t we drop it

And I’m lying next to you
And I don’t know what to do

Say, what you’re gonna say
Refuse to listen anymore so show me
Break, it’s not gonna break
It’s just another crack
On our surface

We’re both on this deathbed
Only nobody’s dead yet
And I’m lying next to you
And I don’t know what to do

And it’s not a problem
Until it’s a problem
And nobody wants them
But everyone’s got them
And I’m lying next to you
And I don’t know what to do


And I’m not gonna call it
If you’re not gonna call it
But that’s what we wanted
So why don’t we drop it

And I’m lying next to you
And I don’t know what to do
And I’m lying next to you
But we both know what to do
