about

Wasp Summer Berlin, Germany

After five years in Berlin, Europe’s grimy,
sleepless City of Fun, Wasp Summer makes
rock that is both agitated and dreamlike, offering grinding bass and taut drums
with spare, spaced-out guitar and
adventurous voice. The songs talk about resilience
and breaking with the past.

Track Name: I Hope You'll Mend
I was drunk
I was scared of the precious girl I made

I was scared I would break her
So I just had to break her to make her stronger
To handle the breaking I placed upon her

I'm sorry, I hope you'll mend

I was angry with no words to say
I couldn't handle myself

I lost out when I lost her
Gave what I could offer
Something she could use
A poor gift, I know it
A poor excuse

I'm sorry, I hope you'll mend

They say you don't treat me no good
But they don't understand
It kills something in a man to feel he can't provide a home
I turned away

I'm sorry, I hope you'll mend
Track Name: Late August, Early September
Late August, Early September

Make me a day, a day out of time
Time that is shimmering, woven from everything pure and divine

Divine are the words, the words sealed on jade
Elegiac, ardent, in leaving, believing the promises made

We will have our day my love
Te Deum
Track Name: Waiting
Break-up song on the radio
We're as close as a slow-dance
If that's wrong, tell me so
Tell me fucking *something*

Oh say, say what you need to say
(The waiting's the worst of it)
Oh, come on!
Ever since the world began it was this way

You'll step back and see?
That's not enough for me.

Do we wait,
Like we've always waited for you
Waited like good girls are supposed to do
For love we're not sure will come through?
Waiting, waiting for you

Choose some nerve, some courage
Or choose old and lonely
I'm handing you the apple now
This is not our Eden

Oh say, say what you need to say
(Before I lose all respect)
Oh, come on!
Ever since the world began it was this way

There is no good time so
Knuckle down or let go

Do we wait,
Like we've always waited for you
Waited like good girls are supposed to do
For love we're not sure will come through?
Waiting, waiting for you
Track Name: Oh Land Oh Lover
Oh towering darkness
Oh blessed countryside
Oh light whose hands caress us for too short a time
Oh land, oh lover
You make us earn your favour
Though you never spend a night alone, we wait
Under towering darkness for the glimmering dawn
