1.
Our bodies lie unresponsive but kind, It was a beautiful night as we watched the dark moon. Driving through Arcata, Past the Mad River and the mountains I wrote this about So many months before I lay with you after I’m through, Tending to the garden that I only just started And I know I’ll be done when you won’t be around anymore. And I’ll lay, lay with you, in our bed, it feels so, so good
2.
Flood 03:44 video
I want to make you a flood in my A flood in my heart. I want to leave you instead of myself Instead of my heart I know even if I run from it I’m still in it I know I’ll hold you so close I know even if I run from it I’m still in it I know in my heart. I want each light for you Even if i could have it stop without you I’ll start without you I’m laying my lives down Onto the cold ground To be near you I’ll be near you
3.
I saw you out there You weren’t looking but I know what it meant Secret medicine It only comes to those of us who leave. I know I’m upset When I can look at you and not be impressed Never lose all hope again Going low, so low You thought it was intended You thought I’d give it all Give it all away But you set a bar so low, so low. I know I’m a mess I change my mind then I’m back at it again It’s crazy how the whole world can end When you’re missing your old sweet, sweet, sweet friend No, going low. I saw you out there You didn’t say a word but i didn’t feel a thing Its crazy how the heart can mend all alone, On its own I came back around Knowing you’d wreck my shit all over again It’s funny how I’ll never regret Going low for you
4.
Never meant to be you Never meant to me Never meant to be us. Never meant for all of this Never meant for you to love Never meant for you to trust. So i’ll take my time, next time And i’ll do it right And I’ll take my time, next time Only with grace, I’ll make you a flood in my Only with grace, I’ll take all the words that you said When you brought it back from the ground. It really waters me down. You know me better than that, you know I hate it like that It really waters me down You know me better than, you know I loved you like that It really waters me down
5.
In A Bind 03:40
It won’t disappoint if you gotta leave me now, I don’t want to keep you waiting. My body’s gone awry and my love is a bind, I don’t know what to do about that. You know I gave you all my time It was enough until you saw her eyes, uh huh Mm, yes, uh huh I know that I was gone a lot last year But I hoped you’d still be here, uh huh Mm, yes, uh huh yes.
6.
Calling out for you In my absence you kept your wits about you And I love when you lie inside of me and I cry out A thousand times When I see you You live inside of my heart and you’ll stay. When you know that it’s done but you won’t leave it alone Why won’t you just say it’s wrong But you wont leave it alone, why won’t you just say it’s wrong I was invited to the party They won’t let my people in Well then never mind, never mind, never mind We don’t wanna go to your function. I want it all for my own It’s me and everybody I know Well then never mind, never mind. When you know that it’s done but you won’t leave it alone Why won’t you just say it’s wrong But you won’t leave it alone Why won’t you just say it’s wrong
7.
You know me, when it serves you To tell everyone You know how I love you. “Please don’t leave the table” I’m still, I’m still You’re still waiting by the door Where I left you on the third day (bye bye) You’re still waiting by the phone for the one who got away When you call, “say my name, say my name When no one else is around you” When you know that the one who caused you pain Is nowhere around you “Please don’t leave the table I’m still eating” (by the) By the window Bye.

Home Soon 04:50
I gave it all away I’ll be home soon At dawn, I’ll be home soon
9.
Morning starts with a build And it’ll reach its peak All the women I meet are tired They just kick up their feet prior to my sitting down. Sitting down yet I belong to no one You tried hard to me mine I won’t ask permission from you We reserve the right to be full When we’re on our own No I’m not alone. Morning starts with a bend And it’ll reach its end All the women I meet are fired up They get ready to kill with their luck Cause we’re not afraid of the war we brought on And we’re steady holding down the fort Evening starts when I’m done It won’t be long before All the women I meet are tired They just kick up their feet prior Cause we’re not afraid of the war we brought on And we’re steady while holding you all.

about

“Break the rules you think you are bound by.”

That’s the recurring sentiment Lætitia Tamko carried with her through the writing and recording of her second album under the Vagabon moniker. Her first, 2017’s Infinite Worlds, was an indie breakthrough that put her on the map, prompting Tamko to tour around the world and quit her job in electrical/computer engineering to pursue a career in music full-time. Tamko’s self-titled Nonesuch Records debut finds her in a state of creative expansion, leaning fully into some of the experimental instincts she flirted with on the previous album. This time around, she’s throwing genre to the wind. Vagabon is a vibrant culmination of influences, emotional landscapes, and moods; a colorful and masterful statement by an artist and producer stepping into her own.
