about

Wyatt Espalin Nashville, Tennessee

With the Ocoee River in East Tennessee as the backdrop, Wyatt Espalin’s debut album, The Pardon was born. After years of writing and touring with the acclaimed Americana duo Trees Leave, it was time for Wyatt to explore a more personal level of songwriting. The Pardon provides ten glimpses into breakups, burdens, colorful britches, and the light on the other side of it all. ... more

Track Name: After You
AFTER YOU (October 2009)
written by Wyatt Espalin & Cobi Ferguson

YOU MAKE THE LIQUOR BURN A LITTLE MORE
LEAVING ME ASHES ON THE FLOOR
WHAT ELSE ARE YOU WAITING FOR
YOU ALREADY FOUND ME, BABY, HANGING FROM YOUR RAFTERS
CAN'T BREAK THE SPELL THAT YOU HAVE ON ME
I GUESS I'LL GO QUIETLY
WHEN YOU TRY AND WAKE ME FROM THAT DEEP SLEEP
I'LL BE FINDING OUT WHAT COMES AFTER YOU

ALL THE PROGRESS I ERASED
CHASING AFTER YOU
ALL I WANTED WAS JUST A LITTLE GRACE
I'LL NEVER GET THAT FROM YOU
HOW WILL I FIND SOMEONE TO FILL THIS SPACE
WHO WILL COME TO ME AFTER YOU

SPENT ALL YEAR TRYING TO GET IT RIGHT
I NEVER MEANT FOR US TO FIGHT
WE BOTH WENT INTO THAT NIGHT
GUNS 'A BLAZING
YOU'RE CRYING KILLED THE LAUGHTER
NOW THESE DAYS ARE GONNA HAUNT ME
ALL OF THESE RAZORS HERE TO TAUNT ME
I COULD STAY, BUT YOU DON'T WANT ME
SO I'LL SHOWER AND SHAVE, BABY
START A NEW LIFE AFTER YOU

LIVING WITH YOU WAS LIKE SUICIDE
I'M GLAD I FINALLY GOT OFF OF THAT RIDE
YOU HAD ME SHAKING LIKE THAT LONELY BULLET
IN YOUR GAME OF RUSSIAN ROULETTE
AND NOW YOU WANT ME TO PULL THE TRIGGER
WHAT ELSE IS THERE LEFT TO DO
HONEY, I'LL PULL THE TRIGGER
I WILL, AFTER YOU

Track Name: Yellow Corduroy
ELLOW CORDUROYS (2/8/12)
written by Wyatt Espalin

I CAN SEE MY HEART IT'S PEEKING OUT THE POCKET
OF HER YELLOW CORDUROYS THAT I BOUGHT HER FOR HER BIRTHDAY
SHE TOLD ME FROM THE START THAT SHE TAKES OFF LIKE A ROCKET
AND THAT ALL THE OTHER BOYS FINALLY SAID SHE WASN'T WORTH IT
BUT I HAVE SEEN HER EYES AND I THINK SHE CAN GIVE
MORE THAN SHE WANTS TO TAKE BUT I COULD BE MISTAKEN
STILL I WILL HOLD MY BREATH, HOLD IT RIGHT BEHIND THESE RIBS
THAT YOU CAN SEE FROM THE HOLE SHE CARVED WHILE I AWAKENED

BABY, BABY WHEN ARE YOU GONNA LOVE ME LIKE THAT
SHE SAID, 'I DON'T KNOW, BUT I CAN SEE IT'S WORKING OUT'
BABY, BABY WHEN ARE YOU GONNA LOVE ME LIKE THAT
'WE'LL SEE,' AND THEN SHE TURNED AWAY AND WALKED INTO THE HURRICANE

NOW I'M AT THE STORE PUSHING ON A SHOPPING CART
OVER BY THE ICE CREAM TRYING TO FREEZE THE TIME
SHE COMES THROUGH THE DOOR BLOWING IN FROM THE PARKING LOT
SAID SHE COULDN'T REST, ALWAYS HAD ME ON HER MIND
SO I TOOK HER HOME AND COMBED OUT HER HAIR
FROM ALL THE TREES AND LEAVES SHE HIT WHILE FLYING THROUGH THE AIR
I BATHED HER IN THE MORNING SCRUBBING ON HER BACK
SHE ASKED IF I WOULD SING SOMETHING JUST A LITTLE HAPPIER

BABY, BABY WHEN ARE YOU GONNA LOVE ME LIKE THAT
SHE SAID, 'I DON'T KNOW BUT CAN'T YOU SEE IT WORKING OUT'
BABY, BABY WHEN ARE YOU GONNA LOVE ME LIKE THAT
'WE'LL SEE,' AND THEN SHE TURNED AROUND AND JUMPED ONTO THE RAILROAD TRACKS

ALL THE STRAINED NECKS FROM ALL THE PASSERS-BY
WHO CAUGHT THE TRAIN WRECK WITH THEIR JUDGE-MENTAL EYES
SHOOK THEIR HEADS IN SHAME AND SAID SHE DON'T DESERVE
THAT SHE'S THE ONE TO BLAME, I SHOULD KICK HER TO THE CURB
BUT MY BABY'S BROKEN, GOTTA PUT HER BACK TOGETHER
AND THROW ALL THOSE PIECES OUT THAT DON'T WANT TO STICK AROUND
I'LL LEAVE HER HEART OPEN, HOPE IT STAYS LIKE THAT FOREVER
AND GIVE HER ONE MORE REASON TO NEVER LET ME DOWN

BABY, BABY ARE YOU GONNA LOVE ME LIKE THAT
SHE SAID, 'I DON'T KNOW, BUT I DON'T THINK IT'S WORKING OUT'
BABY, BABY ARE YOU GONNA LOVE ME LIKE THAT
'WE'LL SEE', BUT FIRST I HAVE TO GO AND FIND ALL MY MISSING PIECES
