"Prolific pop princes Love Cop return with their best, clearest, and most sinister release to date. Hit after hit after hit of burner-boy love-pop. Love Cop is a duo from the shadowy warehouse rows of the Central Eastside Industrial District neighborhood of Portland, OR. Born and raised in Long Island, NY, then relocated to the Northwest, Duffy and Phil are creating some of the best stoner-goth beat-brat dark-pop happening now. Like a beautiful mutt child of Beat Happening, Television Personalities, and The Jesus and Mary Chain albums, Love Cop's newest blockbuster "2 True / 2 Real" is a homemade pop masterpiece of dark and romantic intentions. For all the dark ones out there getting dreamy this Summer. "

Track Name: True Believer
I've been wondering lately if maybe,
am I just a little too fucking crazy
for this kind of thing
It's not the way I wanna think
I can't believe you're listening to me

I've been drinking and nodding along,
cuz I've been thinking of writing this song
I think I've got away,
there's something that I'm trying to say
maybe if I waste another day

It goes on
I turn off
The thought's lost
Can't remember what I was saying

I can't talk
I feel off
You get crossed
Can't remember what I was saying
Don't know why my brain is decaying
Lost in all the games that you're playing
Can't remember what I was saying
Can't remember what I was.

I've been out on the road for so long,
I've been wasted here smoking this bong
I can't seem to find the way,
back to where we're supposed to stay
I wish I was just back in your arms

I've been drinking and nodding along,
cuz I've been thinking of writing this song
Something bout another way
Something bout another day
Can't believe I made it at all

It goes on
I turn off
The thought's lost
Can't remember what I was saying

I can't talk
I feel off
You get crossed
Can't remember what I was saying
Don't know why my brain is decaying
Lost in all the games that you're playing
Can't remember what I was saying
Can't remember what I was.
Track Name: Dreamy
The smell in her hair is of "I don't care"
as she starts to show me her underwear
You're getting upset, she's getting wet,
it happens

You make dreams come true
when I, when I, when I'm inside of you

I don't have the cash to treat her rash (I'm sorry),
instead I just gave her some pills and a bath
It's dreamy when you curl up on my chest,
cuz when you're on my breath it's when I smell the best,
that's right girl

All these dreams come true
when you, when you, when you're inside me too
It's real, uh huh, it's true
Track Name: Haunt My Heart
My little ghost girl
come and show me yr world
all of your insides
what u felt like before u died.

Whisper your fears
right into my ear
We can go haunting
and scare away all them tears.

Can you feel me,
or do my hands go right thru
Do you know me, still
or am I a ghost to you too
I love you so much that when we part,
you haunt my heart.

When your white sheet falls down baby,
like the straps on your night gown
I feel your heart beating,
but still you are fleeting,
don't go.
Track Name: Hologram Pt. II
i'm less human
and more being
because i don't care
for what i'm feeling

what are we going to be tonight
what are we going to be tonight
what are we going to be tonight

everything you feel
will never be real
everyone you do
will never be true
to you

i can't tell
where I am
when all my light
shoots through your hands

what are we going to be tonight
what are we going to be tonight
what are we going to be tonight
when we both become the light

everything you feel
will never be real
everyone you do
they'll never be true
to you, you, you, you

everything you feel
everything you feel
everything you feel
everything you feel

baby, i'm reflecting you into the night (everything you feel)
baby, i'm reflecting you into the night (everything you feel)
baby, i'm reflecting you into the night (everything you feel)
baby, i'm reflecting you into the night (everything you feel)
baby, i'm reflecting you into the night (everything you feel)
baby, i'm reflecting you into the night (everything you feel)
baby, i'm reflecting you into the night (everything you feel)
baby, i'm reflecting you into my life
Track Name: Feels So Unreal
When I first kissed your lips
and slid my hands between your hips
oh I knew then girl,
that I would love you too much

June turned to winter
and still I do miss her
And yesterday just feels, it feels so unreal
And yesterday just feels, it feels so unreal

Because when I kissed you,
it felt like I came true
I didn't know,
you were too good to be true

And I didn't know you all that much
but babe, I knew you well enough
to make you smile each time we touched
to make you tremble, to make you blush
I'll make you melt, I made you crush
all over me, all over me.

Because when I kissed you,
it felt like I came true
I didn't know,
you were too good to be true
(did i even know you)
Because when I kissed you,
it felt like I came true
I didn't know,
you were too good to be true

Don't change your hair or your underwear
I wanna remember you on that couch downstairs
When you were mine and I was yours,
and you felt sexy and I felt adored
although it was all too good,
too good to be true.
Track Name: 2 True 4 U
I exist
under your skin
so
you could feel from within
with each
kiss between your lips
you feel
what it's like to be real

When I'm in you
I know
Girl I know I'm too true
When I'm in you
It's too much
and I know I'm too true for you

The last time
we touched
your waves gushed
over me then rushed
you back
to sea
and washed
in you
all the good in me
and now
my dark heart beats in two
a reminder
of all
that is true
in
you.
Track Name: Hang Out (Of Yr Underwear)
I see her standing there in her underwear
Press to taste my face all up in her hair
I see her standing there in her underwear
I use my teeth, I'm careful not to tear
I see her standing there in her underwear
She'll be gone before she starts to care

There she goes, she goes, she goes (There she goes)

I like how you hang out of yr underwear
I like how you pretend like you don't fucking care
(There she goes, she goes, she goes)
Track Name: You'll Do
Girl,
O girl,
Girl

This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do
This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do

All those pretty words,
that you whisper to me that you like
were not meant for you
no no no...

This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do
This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do

I walk these rainy streets each night,
and I drive from show to show
I look for her and instead I find you
and you, and you, and you.

This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do
This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do

When I'm lying there next to you,
next to you
I feel a million miles away
In the woods, in the desert, in the sea
(far away from me)

This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do
This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do
This song is just for you
Cuz you'll do
you will do
This song is just for you
She's not you
but you'll do.
Track Name: So Long
I haven't felt anything real in forever
and I haven't been this high in so long
Johnny and Suzie they look so happy
as they ride their bikes thru the streets singing songs
Me, I haven't sung with anyone in forever
and I haven't been this gone in so long

So long

Me, I wanna be a little more human
you, you are already far too gone
I stare up into the sky all day til it hurts my eyes
trying to understand where we went wrong
I don't have much, much of anything
I just have a few of these stupid songs
That I haven't sung to anyone in forever
Cuz you've been gone for so long

I don't know where you're goin' to,
I just know that you're long gone.
Long gone

I haven't felt in so long
I haven't felt in so long
I haven't felt in so long
I haven't felt in so long
I haven't felt in so long
I haven't felt in so long
I haven't felt in so long
I haven't felt in so long

I haven't felt,
since,
you're gone.
Track Name: Drive Into The Woods
You keep me up all night before we
decide to both, make an oath, yea
We'll be sleep deprived and totally high
in a disguise, we wont say our goodbyes, no

Have you ever, Have you ever
Driven deep in the woods
We'll be together, be together
Real deep in the woods, uh huh

You clasp my hands between your legs
as I press down on the gas, i can hear you as you laugh, yea
The branches snap and the windshield starts to crack
your eyes look black, u say there's no going back now
The wind felt good like i knew it would
as we both flew out high over the hood
Laying in the dirt it didn't even hurt
in your last stare I really felt that you cared, yea

Have you ever, Have you ever
Driven deep in the woods
We'll be together, be together
Real deep in the woods, uh huh
Track Name: In The Trees
I hear your name in the breeze,
as it blows thru all of the trees
I carve your name into the bark,
like how you cut me deep in my heart

You're almost too real
You're almost too real
You're almost too real
You're almost too real
For me

I'll see you in the trees
I'll see you in the trees
I'll see you in the trees
I'll see you in the trees

I climb your limbs and get real high,
I trace your face in every cloud in the sky
I carve your name into the bark,
like how you cut me deep in my heart

You're almost too real
You're almost too real
You're almost too real
You're almost too real
For me

I'll see you in the trees (You're almost too real)
I'll see you in the trees (You're almost too real)
I'll see you in the trees (You're almost too real)
I'll see you in the trees (You're almost too real)
I wont leave you in the trees (You're almost too real)
I wont leave you in the trees (You're almost too real)
I wont leave you in the trees (You're almost too real)
I wont leave you in the trees (You're almost too real)
No
Track Name: Come Back Around
As I sit here wasting
all my youth while tasting
the salty, sad tears of a clown

I remember that time you were sick
and bringing you pot chocolates
as you twirled like a ghost in a sheer night gown

You said you liked that I noticed
Everything from our first kiss
and you were sorry you took so long to come around

I liked to make you cum
And listen to your lungs
as you sung and learned to play those sweet sounds

I remember talking to you, til dawn
before you said you, were gone
and floated far away from town

You had told me you were fucking crazy
I guess it shoulda phased me
but it's hard when just u turn my frowns around

Just u,
turn my frowns around
Just u,
won't ya come back around
come back around
come back around
