about

Young Yeller is the musical alter ego of classically trained percussionist and former Chrome Sparks member, Jesse Brickel. Young Yeller emerged in 2011 with his heralded debut EP, 'Make Me'. On his debut self-titled LP, Brickel manifests epically entrancing yet restrained electronic infused pop. Young Yeller will play ample shows in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY throughout 2014.

Track Name: war
sing to me again
sing about the world you left for me

leave me with the staff
so i can lead the masses towards the sea

tell me once again
tell me all about the crazy ones

when i'm all alone
how do i prevent the flaring guns?

if ever there's a war, i'll go
if ever there's a war, i'll go oh oh

fill my head with space
fill me so i don't think it's okay

to think about what's lost
to find a deeper hole where i can lay

trust me all the way
trust me so i don't have all this doubt

i just want to be
i just want to let my demons out

if ever there's a war, i'll go
if ever there's a war, i'll go oh oh
Track Name: 1st love
if you know me the way i think you do
then you should understand why i'm not for you
yes i know that it is your heart i stole
but we share such a clearly different soul

in our ocean that's filled with tears
our bodies catching the waves of our fears
while the water floods into our ears
while the water floods into our ears

in your gun
there's a bullet meant for me
yeah i'm done
but it's the price i pay to be free

we were once all the things that we thought we'd want
all the bodies to have and hallways to haunt
yes i know that we could have worked things out
but we'd be missing out on what it's about

in our ocean that's filled with tears
our bodies catching the waves of our peers
while the water floods into our ears
while the water floods into our ears

in your gun
there's a bullet meant for me
yeah i'm done
but it's the price i pay to be free
Track Name: drive me wild
you understand
that when you're different than i planned
you drive me wild

you grab my hand
as i sink into the sand
you drive me wild

you look at me
i look at someone else
i don't know how
you can't see me and not run away

i can't believe it's you
who believed in me
i don't want you to
i don't want you to

a change of pace
say i gotta shave my face
you drive me wild

feels like a waste
all these feelings feel misplaced
you drive me wild

you feel my heart
it beats for someone else
i don't know how
you can't see me and not run away

i can't believe it's you
who believed in me
i don't want you to
i don't want you to
Track Name: 4 tonight
i know what's right for me
but i cannot control myself

these shots are just enough
to bring this buzz right to the brink

we'll make the same mistakes
we made before not long ago

your eyes are sinking deep into my heart
into my heart, into my heart

oh i can believe it for tonight
it's alright, i will love you

i can believe it for tonight
you were right, i will love you

this cab is speeding up
the music's on and my mind's turned off

the past is catching up
and i can't stop, i just can't stop

we'll make the same mistakes
we made before not long ago

i just want to know, i just want to know
if it could be real again

oh i can believe it for tonight
it's alright, i will love you

oh i can believe it for tonight
you were right, i will love you
Track Name: wait
wait
wait for me still
it may be wrong until
we're on our way to holding hearts

wait
though I'm the selfish one
it's not fair
not to you
to me

wait
i'm still not there
(i shouldn't ask of you
the things that i want you to do)

wait
i don't ask a lot of you
but for our sake
you will wait
for me

i'm a mess
i am unclear
i am at war
i am at war

i can't move on
you should have more than
i can give more than
i can give

wait
you should not wait
though I may want to be
upon a hill and in your arms

wait
i don't know if i'll ever come
i will try
will you wait
for me?
Track Name: cut me open
ankles swollen up
got eaten in the night

apparitions poked
until i hit the light

i wish you were here
i'd have some sanity

you've taken control
of where i'm gonna be

if u want to
cut me open
i will let you
please go slowly

if you want to
cut me open
i will lay here
cut me open

you seem well aware
of what you're gonna do

forcep out my heart
replace it with a shoe

i try walkin round
but i don't feel a thing

you just stand there smiling
cackling like a king

if u want to
cut me open
i will let you
please go slowly

if you want to
cut me open
i will lay here
cut me open
Track Name: u would go
i have not been good
whatsoever

you don't misunderstand
i'm just a loser

you've put up with me
for forever

i can't comprehend
this however

i thought u would go
i thought u would go

you're my valentine
in october

treasure what we had
is it over?

did i kick u out?
was i sober?

was this a mistake?
i feel older

i thought u would go
i thought u would go
Track Name: it's ok, it's ok
in sleep i dream of you with longer hair
you have this look that said you're okay, you're okay

you tell me that you have to go away
you tell me still that it's okay, it's okay

you walk quickly
i call after
you don't turn back
you don't answer
to your name
your name
your name means nothing

i want something more
than chasing after someone i would endure
you may be better than someone i knew
but I don't care anymore

i wake up next to you with sweaty limbs
you tell me it was just a dream, it's okay
i ask if you think that it's a lie
denying dreams everyday, everyday

but you're not listening
i’m still dreaming
i call after
you don't answer
to your name
your name
your name means nothing

i want something more
than chasing after someone I would endure
you may be better than someone better than I knew
but I don't care anymore

i want something more
than chasing after someone like i've done before
you may be better than someone better than I knew
but I don't care anymore
Track Name: if i only knew
i would not believe it
oh i cold not foresee it

i thought you believed in truth too
but i couldn’t see right through you

if i only knew
if i only knew before
i’d grow faster
i’d have less to endure

really thought you knew me
but you turned around and screwed me
i can’t take this any longer
i just thought that i’d be stronger
Track Name: i walked
LYRICS

i walked
your hand on my shoulder
i feel your hand on my shoulder
i walked into your heart
