you sat and waited on a bus a plane a train to nowhere you heard it coming for a long time then forgot about it how many times does one forget, explain, and start it over you took a break you searched your soul and now the world's your lover you stared at pictures on the books and screens and got a vision a waterfall of magic running down sweet juicy nothings but they weren't nothing they were something big and don't forget it you took a break you searched your soul and now the world's your lover what you're trying to get away with what you're trying to get away with you gotta follow, follow ... your bliss that's what this is your head is bowed in sadness grief and loss you feel it baby the failure stacks you've tried a hundred times and nothing's sticking that lovely moment when you let it go and feel forgiveness untie your hands and throw them up because the world's your lover what you're trying to get away with what you're trying to get away with you gotta follow, follow ... your bliss that's what this is

ABOUT THE WORLD IS YOUR LOVER
Mary Bue’s 8th album is full of power pop, piano dream waves, and layers and layers of shimmery 90’s influenced guitars to defy and even proudly display the battle scars. This album is a testament that life provides us with myriad opportunities to grow, learn, deepen, and love. Joined by new bandmates Jeremy Ylvisaker (The Suburbs, Andrew Bird, HALEY, Jenny Lewis, Alpha Consumer), Steve Price (The Suburbs, Rex Daisy), Richard Medek (Kevin Costner (!), Eric Koskinen, Molly, Maher) and occasional string section Julia Floberg (Delphia Cello Quartet, Mestofonia) & Shannon Frid-Rubin (Cloud Cult, batterboy) + harmonies by Crystal Meisinger this is a band fit for a kingdom, newly dubbed Mary Bue & the Monarchy. Her new album will also feature cameos from Low’s Alan Sparhawk and Adam Levy (The Honeydogs).
