about

velvet crayon Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Velvet Crayon is a one manned, more koala-based, psychedelic indie rock noise making persona/band fronted by Erik Paluszak. On stage, while sometimes featuring ukulele or synth, Erik leads a fuzzed out orchestra of electric guitars, vocals, and drum machines (think the Flaming Lips meets the White Stripes with a dash of the Kinks). ... more

Track Name: that's the way girls are
"that's the way girls are"
written by: e.paluszak [velvet crayon]
adapted from: "that's the way boys are" [lesley gore]

when i'm with my gal
and she's staring in my eyes
i can't help but look away
cause i can't stand to see her cry

i know she worries about our love
that one day i'll have had enough
cause that's the way girls are
that's the way girls are

she compares me to her past
but i wish she would understand
that i'm not always an ass
sometimes i just wanna hold her hand

and when she slightly pulls away
i know that things will be okay
it's just that's the way girls are
that's the way girls are

oh oh, when she wants to be alone
i just let her be
cause i know that soon enough
she'll come back to me.. she'll come back to me..

she feels safe in my arms
so i ask her to dance
i've been warned once before
that she will never take a chance

but she smiles when i say
that our love is here to stay
cause that's the way girls are
that's the way girls are
that's the way girls are
that's the way girls are..

"rabbit-duck tattoo"
written by: e.paluszak [velvet crayon]

i used to love a girl
kinda crazy in the head
i finally broke it off
but now she wants me dead
maybe i should -- take her back
maybe if she, weren't so crazy -- i would.

sometimes hearts
can start to rust
what you think is love
turns out to be lust
she could make me feel so high / she always had two sides
just like her rabbit-duck tattoo
i fell in love with her rabbit-duck tattoo..

i fell in love with her rabbit-duck tattoo
i fell in love with her rabbit-duck tattoo
i fell in love with her rabbit-duck tattoo
i fell in love with her rabbit-duck tattoo
