about

Kicking Up Cinders Cincinnati, Ohio

Based out of Cincinnati, OH, Kicking Up Cinders is an Americana duo comprised of Kaitlin Morrison and Andy Mclain.

Track Name: Ours To Own
We see a long laundry list
Of everything to fix
While the gradient of history
Paints goodness as a lady of mystery
And we're anchored afraid in place

We loved the chase
When we thought we would catch her
We only wanted to be like her
But you don't have to catch her
To have the light of her
As soon as we decide this is so

It's ours to own
Within these candlestick bones
Swelling sighs of stillness
It's ours to own

Walking down the road
In boots that aren't our own
We're not shining polished pans
But clean like streams and wind
Rinsing with mercy our wrongs
Singing our own songs

It's ours to own
Within these candlestick bones
Swelling sighs of stillness
It's ours to own
Track Name: Conditional
I'm aware of how conditional our romance is
I know it has its limits
I can see that times it's selfless
But I can tell when it isn’t

I'm aware that I need you more than you need me
I've tried to need you less
'Cause you seem just fine with or without me
But without you I'm a mess

I'm aware that you do care for me
You just don't want to keep me back
I kinda wish you would want to keep though
It's so selfless, I can't even be mad

And I'm aware that we're only human beings
Claiming unconditionality
In a completely conditional relationship
How discouraging

But what are we supposed to do
Not believe at all in any truth?
Accept that it's mostly about belonging
Is it me for you and you for me?

I'm aware of how conditional our romance is
I know it has its limits
I can see that times it's selfish
But sometimes it isn’t
Track Name: Fall Back On
I never quite knew what to make of Oklahoma
No matter how often I drive through her nights
But miles have markers and markers mean time
I hum a sad tune I don't know if it's yours or it's mine

Sometimes you sing for the song
Sometimes you sing for someone

I never quite knew who you really were
Until I was hundreds of miles a way
But lovers write letters, our pens have run dry
I still sing your songs and I wonder if you still sing mine

Sometimes you sing for the song
Sometimes you sing for someone

Too many guitars and I can't find the chords
To finish this part of the song
You're no more my muse than the 'ludes or the booze
A trio too easy to fall back on

Sometimes you sing for the song
Sometimes you sing for someone
Track Name: Ruby
Ruby lay down your arms tonite
I don't want to fight anymore
About rumors that are going 'round town

About the drinks that I've had at the bar
The women I've had in my car
Or the men that you said were “just friends”
But sleep on my side of the bed

Trust and love are hard to find
While lust and beauty cloud the mind
No one wants to go it alone

You know somewhere I misplaced my faith
So I put it in the lines of your face
And no wrinkle could make me think twice
But a hardness has set in your eyes

Oh trust and love are hard to find
While lust and beauty cloud the mind
No one wants to go it alone

Ruby lay down your arms tonite
I'm not going to fight any more
Lovers should not wage war
