about

Black Giraffe Seattle, Washington

A Rock n’ Soul band of square pegs. Black Giraffe appreciates the one guy dancing like no one’s watching in a crowd full of overly self-conscious people seemingly trapped in the tiny town from Footloose. This band aims to turn everyone in the audience into Kevin Bacon by mixing Soul, R&B, rock, afrobeat, and any rhythm that moves people with an experimental pop palette. ... more

Track Name: Right Back
I could be yours, you could be mine
if you really wanted it
we were a righteous force of nature
but its time you knew better
and its time I knew better
what do you really want
time to be moving on

right back you’ve got to get right back baby
right back you’ve got to get right back up

there are moments of doubt anger and shame
where are we now
am I going crazy
I can hardly feel someone put me back together now
I won’t leave you hanging if you won’t leave me hanging
if you really wanted it

right back you’ve got to get right back baby
right back you’ve got to get right back up

I could be yours, you could be mine
where are we now
am I going crazy
I can hardly feel someone put me back together now
I can hardly feel it
what do you really want
Track Name: Follow Me
Stop… don’t need to rest but
I get the feeling you do
I get the felling like every color is blue

Don’t let it get you down
I feel the pressure in you build ing up
I get the feeling like any body would do

I can only light the way if you follow me

Your in a twist now,
over every move
I get the feeling that any reason would do
in every pregnant pause
I feel the pressure in you build ing up
I get the feeling like any body would do

don't stop runaway
how do we get out of here
high up in the canopy
how do we get home
don't stop running now
how do we get out of here
high up in the canopy
how do we get home

Your like a stone there
Ain't no blood squeezing from you
I get the feeling like anybody would do

Don't need to rest but
I get the feeling you do
I get the feeling like every color is blue
Stop
Track Name: Spin
Some days I feel like I’m stuck in a haze
give me a direction I’ll follow you any way

She wore a little red dress
And blue suede shows
Tattoos on her chest
And an unlit cigarette
she asked for a little help

I wanna go wanna go where the night is young
wont you string me along, and lets get lost

She skipped down the street
both arms outstretched , reaching
Glasses fell her face
landed at my feet
She asked for a little help

A moment of silence please
For soft clean light through soft clean sheets
Shining through to the dirt, and the grime and the salt and the sin underneath

Rhythms in rhythms , decisions decisions
To turn to twist to arch to kiss
To hold back and get gone
To charge back in headlong

She came hat in hand with
Both arms outstretched
With that pleading look on her face
And the whole charade complete
She asked one more time for a little help
Track Name: Off the Deep
Hold on, I will, I will
hold on, but I’m walking on a tightrope now
baby you can tell me don’t fall don’t fall
but it drives me out of my mind
baby you can tell me don’t fall don’t fall
but I’m walking on a tightrope now

god damn baby I wanna see you go down
feel it slipping through my fingers but I wanna see you go down

don’t know what to do next
don’t know what to say next
don’t know where to go next
but I don’t want to back down
we can leave it all on the ground hows that sound
hows that sound
but I dont want to back down
Track Name: Light I Find
I was a lonely man
I couldn’t find a way to catch her eye
it had its start way before the city
I couldn’t find any way around my mind
it’s been a long long time
it’s gonna take a while to see the light

everything falls apart
we all get lonely
I let the rain come down
and then wash straight out with the tide
om oh my oh my
it’s just another day

I’ve had enough of starring through a keyhole
I do the twist, open the door, and step inside
I know its mostly dark, to survive I need to start
living in the light I find

living in the light I find
Track Name: Daisy
Daisy duke, bet you’re feeling high and mighty
nothing I can do, said nothing I can do
I will crawl to you when I come back baby I will crawl to you

I won’t back down I don’t wanna back down
if i open my mouth i’ll bite my tongue
but you can feel it oh before the day is done
I will crawl back baby i will crawl to you

Daisy doll, bet you’re feeling mighty lonely
nothing I can do yeah nothing I can do
I will hold for you till the fever breaks and the spell is through

Nothings gonna change my mind
with all you need to figure out I think you need time alone with you
Daisy take a timeout maybe learn a thing or two
nothings gonna change my mind

daisy oh, bet you’re feeling mighty lost
nothing I can do yeah nothing I can do
I will hold for you as long as it takes I will hold for you

Everybody gangway, I need to board that train
I need to by some time until the fever breaks
Its everyday all the time, and it just won’t do

Nothings gonna change my mind
with all you need to figure out I think you need time alone with you
Daisy take a timeout maybe learn a thing or two
nothings gonna change my mind
Track Name: King Hat
Devils in the water, and we’re all out of our minds
we’ve all lost our minds this time
everything over the top all of the time
we’ve all lost our minds our minds

thats the truth, if I know you
things ain’t going quite the way they should
toes to tooth, and the record loops
things ain’t going quite the way they should

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
bet they conspire and sharpen their knives
whenever you leave the room
heavy is the head that wears the crown
bet you have eyes in the back of your head
bet you can hardly sleep
Track Name: Language Falls Short
Step into line

open on a scene,
pale colors in a wash of light ahead of me
don’t get lost in the trees
sell the lies as gospel and make them sing

everyday I put the words back together
its an incomplete crossword I’ll never finish
language falls short and actions can’t say it
and the state itself by nature cannot explain it
Track Name: Melody
Did you ever fall backward so hard
You never thought you’d ever stand again
At times I fall backward so far
I believe I never stood from the start

and the beat is all I am
melody , heart, and hands

will you still love us when we’re gone
still love us

every single note girl
Its everything I need
Take it from the top now
Its everything I need
