Tennis

Tennis is an American indie pop band from Denver made up of husband-and-wife duo Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. During their first tour, James Barone joined the band on drums. The couple met each other while studying philosophy in college, and started the band after they got back from a seven-month sailing expedition down the Eastern Atlantic Seaboard. They took their name from a joke about Patrick Riley playing tennis in college. Prior to joining Tennis, Moore's earliest singing experience was in church choirs during her youth. more »

My better self still knows
That meaning comes and goes
What is it made?
I do not know
But meaning comes and it goes

Each and every portent
Of bitter substance spent
Despite the effort I have planned
You seem to lose what I've meant

If I don't use words
Then each sound goes unheard
Utterly senseless without nouns and verbs
Symbols suggest they are fit to possess
A purposely function
That cannot be met

Those who created know
Air is in man and blow
Only the value given shows
That meaning comes and goes

My better self still knows

That meaning comes and goes
What is it made?
I do not know
But meaning comes and it goes

If I don't use words
Then each sound goes unheard
Utterly senseless without nouns and verbs
But symbols suggest they are fit to possess
A purposely function
That cannot be met

If I don't use words
Then each sound goes unheard
Utterly senseless without nouns and verbs
But symbols suggest they are fit to possess
A purposely function
That cannot be met

My better self still knows
That meaning comes and goes
What is it made?
I do not know
But meaning comes and goes
