I found our spot she said it was hidden between our last decision and me you are not locked off to anyone I think any one except me accept me you're like that you're like that I smell like black girl black around our lips black around your voice black i say black found it sticks to the back of my eyelids kids say it with me now black black black black but only if you think it’s a good thing the greatest thing since maybe water we’re like that you're like that you're like that you're like that why am I like that? who made me that way what’s the fiction in the fact? who wrote it that way? where’s my pat on the back? I crave it today? what’s the math on the facts? who felt it that way? what I gained what I lack? who made me this way? you more this or that? who made you that way? Did a fine job with that. for real? who made you that way I got the message from your app. your thumbs like tap can’t correct automat can’t spell the smell black? contort my shape into that trigger this trigger that why are we like that who made us this way? do I remind of your past? who hurt you that d ay? when I burn I turn to ash still smelling like cash keyloyds branded all our flesh marked the genes with the past who did it this way I failed you daily on our path who made him that way?

Let’s say that you are happy / you left the skies of Paris Lets say you don’t have much time / Fires burns your lies Let’s say your head is in the clouds / and you change your charm depending on the crowd Of course you're anywhere but inside your banalities. Of course you’re everywhere except where you’re supposed to be And I've determined that it’s in your dreams or in infinity or maybe in insanity or in her dreams yes you belong in her dreams thats where to be cause its beautiful in your dreams I love your dreams as long as they include me tell me that I’m in your dreams please tell me that you dream of me… Let’s pray that you are damned the girl part of you you don't understand Let’s pray you grazed by me we're so in love with secretes aren't we? And let’s pray that i'm between stay and leave and reciprocity you don't know what that means And let’s pray that i can forget and try and feel what will come next. Let’s say that You were some dust And you were swept away By some real strong wind one night Where have you landed? If not in my fragile sky. chorus Same Changes And I've determined that it’s in your dreams or in infinity or maybe in insanity or in her dreams yes you belong in her dreams thats where to be cause its beautiful in your dreams I love your dreams as long as they include me tell me that I’m in your dreams please tell me that you dream of me… Today I wore the same clothes The ones with the pain on Cut from the same cloth These kind don’t come off I’m in the mirror and I can’t believe I’m the same as the old me What’s the use i’ma die alone Same mistake same song Different daddy same mom Same issues different cause for alarm But now you dreaming of a new cat With bread and status and all that But wait for your boy for a few years See what kind of decisions you make when you living in fear You’ll be through with him quickly If not literally then metaphysically And me I’ll still be around In your head, when you lay down In convenient I know it sounds glum Im easier to dream about than I am to love.

My --- Love 05:41
She was dark and lovely Didn’t see the crazy coming Didn’t see the beauty leavin’ Didn’t see nuthin really It was all a blur Me and her Million miles per We in love and do not care Masochistic fix Me hurtin’ me She hurtin’ she Equal opportunity Damaging my sanity Thinkin we could make it work That’s complacency Nth degree L.O.V.E Me an arrogant fool She was an unstable too Check her circumstance Fatherless no chance Plus she the strong headed type Fisti cuffs when we fight Swinging wild that’s her style Her bite match her bark woo chyled Now we done And free Used all our mercy Ain’t seen her in a year That’s how its gotta be Cause unfortunatly That’s the intensity, my first l.O.V.E My first love 8x Feeding on each other and loving every minute / still not grown / still not grown // tasted like right at first but in the end its wrong / still not grown / still not grown…. She was dark and lovely / but I saw the crazy coming / did it anyway cause she was fine what can I say / I was / passive aggressive undressed all of the above / we thought we were in love And we were right / for a second and no more / she strung me along through her peace and her wars / what for? / went from sleeping on the couch to the bed to the floor / flew through her life big bird condor She often said my heart wanders / and that she couldn't ponder / romance / intercourse I wonder / if she was correct well yes my heart wanders / but far more careful than hers As it were she was only sort of with me / and fully with whomever was in deed / in need of her lovely / except of course me / as you would expect my 7th… I think my 7th l.Ov.E And that’s love 8x Just so you know the lust is still fresh / still not grown // I want you simply // and even now you could care less / what a joke / a terrible joke.. Hahaha… ha ha ha… ha ha ha haaaaa…

I used to be affectionate / I’ve seen you cold and naked warmed you with my kindness / We had a strong attachment It withstood the distance and the wind / The lust and the sin It was heaven from beginning to the end But don’t believe what I’ve said / I might leave you mislead Cause my dreams are very powerful / and I often miss things I never had / things I never had things I never had / things I never had I miss knowing your brain and where it bends I miss knowing your soul and where it lives I miss knowing your hips and their motions and I miss reading your thoughts I’m clairvoyant I keep expecting to turn a corner and see you there smiling But that has yet to happen so I wonder where and when I love you very much but I’m not sure that you exist or ever did I pray that you did / live inside my head But don’t believe a word that I’ve said Cause my dreams are very powerful / and I often miss things I never had... missed you, even though, you were not there. started a war, all inside my head. all inside my head all inside my head all inside my head all inside my head

about

Do you often miss (things) you've never had? Experiences? People? Abilities? Qualities? Foods and Drinks? Et Cetera and what have you? These four songs and the rumination there-in may be, is, and will be yours - is yours - rest assured.

They were created by Terence Nance Presently Known as Terence Etc. (Et Cetera). This is the first (thing) he has released and he has done so with much care, trepidation, liberation, meticulousness, delusion, and absolute certainty and clarity of (spirit). It is a thing to be had, doubtless, present, impossible to miss.

IN CELEBRATION of the 7th anniversary of the release of Terence's first feature film AN OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF HER BEAUTY.

Upon purchase of the full THINGS I NEVER HAD EP you will receive a free download of the film via Vimeo.

All you have to do is purchase the EP and a free download link will be sent to your inbox.
