about

With his critically acclaimed 2012 debut LP, Longing, behind him, Tyler Daniel Bean returns with Everything You Do Scares Me—a 2 song 7" that examines the deep-seated effects of loss and our innate ability to accept life’s ebb and flow in and out of normalcy. Housed in a beautiful hand-screened chip-board jacket, this record is a perfect modern-day addition to all those 90s emo records that have worn thin on your turntable from years and feelings long passed. Lyrically and musically, these songs portray the fleeting sadness and the necessary sorrow that we must embrace before looking to the inevitable future. These songs are surely sad, but they are sad in a profound and thoughtful way.

Track Name: Year of the Snake
There’s a void; there’s a hole in my chest.
My insides are piling up.
I’ll leave the light on so you can find your way home.
If these strings could tell you anything
it’s that I’m here, that I’m listening
for your footsteps, the knock on the door,
for your shoes as they hit these cold wooden floors,
and your voice.

I’m in a stairwell unable to move—
inside of a church I’ve never been in, I never wanted to—
surrounded by these people who are thinking of you.
January 24th comes once a year,
and I still think about how I haven’t shed a tear.
I’m just an asshole with a sensitive side,
but I still wake up and think that you’re alive.

I’m unhappy today, and I don’t know what to do.
I used to tell you that I loved you, and it’s still true.
I’m unhappy today, and I don’t know what to do.
I’m unhappy today because I’m thinking of you.

Losing a friend is without example; losing a friend wasn’t part of the plan.
Track Name: I Was Wrong
I put our past behind me with every new hello.
Your body, it twists until the daylight rides the lines of your dress.

I watched my life disappear with the December skyline.
My eyes are glazed, my stomach’s queasy.
And I know it gets better every day, but I don’t feel better.
Just give it a year for it to snow again. I’ll smile, I promise.
Because the snow, it gently presses on my heart—wiping these worries to the wooden floor of this apartment.

I wasn’t strong enough; I wasn’t proud enough to hold you in my arms.
I wasn’t proud enough; I wasn’t strong enough to hold you in my heart.
