about

In early 2016, Pretty Lush released their debut album, Heart Like a Home. It is a collection of three gut wrenching songs about how to cope with the realization that you are falling out of love.
The record starts with whirring feedback that explodes into the album's single, "Crutch". Moving deeper into the record, fast paced hardcore nuances coupled with sincere lyrics and a heavy guitar presence blend to create a sound reminiscent of a Smashing Pumpkins’ record.

Track Name: Crutch
I can smell the sadness in you
Like the rain in the air
It's too cold here
For the sun to dare
Shed some light on your heart
We're all made so beautiful,
But from the worst parts

I wish that I could be the one that you rely on
I wish that I could be your crutch
But I'm to weak and I can't stand
Without one of my own

I can taste the sorrow in you
Like the salt on your skin
You're too cold dear
To let me in
But I would never do you any harm
You're always so miserable
And the worst part is

I wish that I could be the one that you rely on
I wish that I could be your crutch
But I'm to weak and I can't stand
Without one of my own
Track Name: Thief
You may have been the best thing
To happen to me
The best ain't what I need
I need to see the worst in me
To confront all of the things
Rooted so deep

I am tried and tired
I am thin as smoke

She keeps smoking me like a cigarette
I am at my end, but I am in your blood
So let's see who's up at night
Thinking of the other one

I am tried and tired
I am thin as smoke
I have a heavy head and a heart of stone
I have a heavy head and a heart of stone

When will I be my own man?
When will my actions breed consequence

I cannot be your lover
Even if I tried
My head is full of anger
And unreasonable lies
I'll cut you down like a thief in the night
Treat your heart like a home
And rob you blind
Track Name: Reap
I watched the winter
Take everything that I love
And all these drugs won't make me
Feel whole
I've been a ghost at our old haunt
Staying silent, keeping my distance

Say what you will about Mother Misery
But she lays her head in bed next to me
She holds me close, sings me to sleep
Waits for death to come and reap

I've got a secret
Buried in my closet
Wrapped in skeletons
I've got a promise
Tucked behind my teeth
I'll catch it in my throat
Before I can speak

There's a line drawn in the sand
(Wash away like the ink on my hands)
Your name is written in my skin
(An open wound that's bound to get infected)
Your voice is forever in my head
(I hear it in my sleep)
I fell in love with Mother Misery
