about

Jeff Tapia Seattle, Washington

Jeff Tapia is a Seattle based songwriter and scream singer that can't quite figure out what she's doing. Lately delving into alternative lo-fi folk rock, Jeff is inspired by the strange, childish, and beautiful nightlife of the confidently unsure bar fly community of this queer and crazy town. Also dumpsters. Jeff likes candy, tacos and laundry smell. ... more

Track Name: White Knuckle and Warnings
I ask for forgiveness
For the lied that I never told
For the momentary weakness
For the truths that I cannot hold
It ain't fair that I love you
That I stumbled into
This big can of worms
And that you left me astounded
Like a B Movie takes a really weird turn

And it's too late
To mull it over
It's too much
To watch you walk away again
With your back to the western sun

The blind hope that I run on
Is a game that I'm playing to pass the time
With the white knuckles and warnings
In the form of faded and hand printed signs
And I hope that you'll miss me
That my voice is a memory that you cannot lose
And I promise you nothing

And I wish
You would mull this over
It's too much
To watch you walk away again
With your back to the western sun
Track Name: Valentine [NSFW]
If I had cars and a gold plated fountain
If I had a view of the sea and the mountains
It's true
I'd have it all but you
I've got air and a roof above me
I've got a job and clothes to hug me
It's true
I've got it all but you

I don't like candy
It hurts my teeth
And I've never really been into cards
My bed seems to get
A little bigger every day
So one thing I can say
Is fuck love

I hate the taste that the holiday offers
Like bad tofu in the heat of summer
It's gross
Kinda like my toes
And I miss you like a cute little fat kid
Misses cake on a no carb diet
And like
This song misses rhymes

I don't like candy
It hurts my teeth
And I've never really been into cards
My bed seems to get
A little bigger every day
So one thing I can say
Is fuck love
