“Transistor” was written and recorded in 2012. It was my band’s second single and was later collected on The Early Singles compilation.

Five years after the original release, a remixed single was released.

Lyrics

a hundred words to tell this story
about a girl and the boy before me
a song on repeat for two hours
I grit my teeth and I wish it was ours

track eleven, 3:48
same old chorus and guitar fade
like a band-aid make it quick
rip off the knob and enjoy the static

we all want what we can’t have

’cause we all…
live and die on the radio
love and cry on the radio
wave goodbye on the radio

these hundred steps that lay before me
I’d walk ’em all if you’d see what I see
but just like a stone alone I sit
skipping ‘our’ song when I see you with him

counting seconds, 4:38
the record ends but the feelings don’t fade
take a deep breath hold it in
I let it out knowin’ what could have been

we all want what we can’t have

’cause we all…
live and die on the radio
love and cry on the radio
wave goodbye on the radio

if only you could hear me
I’d show you what I see
if given time we could be
but we’ll never know
