On Okayplayer.com News!! “Somebody please pass me an ice-cold glass of wine, so I can get mellow, lay back, and let my girl play the cello. Actually, your boy Kevin “K.O.” Olusola plays the cello (and beatboxes) and Antoniette Costa handles the virtuoso vocals and powerful songwriting, while the classically trained and classically beautiful Tamara Kamangarfalls in on violin and piano. But if you want to get technical, Dizzie Gillespie plays the trumpet so whatever.”

LYRICS

verse

i thought i was brave enough to battle your ghost

the fever of a first love which poets wrote 

deeply penetrates both soul and mind 

leaving nothing but a prisoner behind 

but never did i see, you’d turn away from 

making it so hard to hold on

chorus

it’s in the way you leave me stranded 

i feel like i’ve lost control 

it’s in the way you seem so distant 

i feel like i’ve lost a friend 

it’s in the way you live for her each day 

it’s sin the way you live for her each day 

and not for me

verse

i thought i was strong enough to battle it off 

the lure of what’s lost, what still haunts 

an intuition of some suspicion, what’s locked inside 

a secret mystery, it mesmerizes me 

i know, i feel, she’s calling me

[chorus]

 hold on, hold on…and not for me

[chorus]

bittersweet i tried to reach you

memories of her voice won’t leave you 

love devoid-a ghost that’s haunting me
