about

An EP of original music. And a classic rock jam.

'To Love Once More' is a bit of an anomaly in Chauncey's world. For a Boston-based band that worked hard to garner critical acclaim in the early 2000s by slaving over every note, every song, every gig...this EP just…well...just kind of happened.

In 2005, Chauncey decided to take an indefinite break. After spending two months, stretched over the course of a year, recording their 2nd record, "My Radio (Everything I Know)," with legendary engineer, Steve Albini, the previous 5 years of touring, showcases, and dashed hopes had taken their toll. Folks were tired, disillusioned with the music industry, ready for a change, and as it does for everyone, life happened.

Fast-forward 9 years to 2014.

A casual suggestion is made: "Guys, why don't we get together, play some tunes, have some beers...but let's do it in the studio, just for fun. No pressure, no agenda. Whaddya say?"

This 5 song EP was born out of that concept: One rehearsal. Little to no material. Sketches. Riffs. Hopes. Excitement. Of course, this could end badly. Limbs broken, feelings hurt, a terrible fall. It had been 9 years after all.

Full of energy and renewed sense of purpose, Chauncey is proud to present what may be their best work to date. We hope you enjoy listening to the new EP as much as we enjoyed making it!

Track Name: Fading Out Of Love (Part 1)
Fading out of love
Can't deny the way it makes me call above
As if there was an answer

Waiting on the line
When exactly did my heart fall out of time?
It's so hard to keep

But it's so, so damn easy
To walk right out the door

And you're so, so damn easy
To love once more

Fading into you
All we wanted was for this to just be true
And I ain't lying

Making up the time
Is harder than even God knows what it's worth
In the stars above

But it's so, so damn easy
To walk right out the door

And you're so, so damn easy
To love once more
Track Name: I Call Out Your Name
Breakdown,
In the middle of the street my friend, oh no
The rats run by
They're fleeing that ship of fools, but I sail on

I fly so high,
I touch the sun and melt away from you
I'm raining down with love, with pain, with truth

I call out your name

It's not over, oh no
I don't wanna live like that
I don't want to live without it

It's not over, oh no
I don't wanna live that live
I don't want to live without, without you

I call out your name

Knocked out,
In the middle of the ring,
In the middle of the night
I say your name, I say it again
And again and again

And I call out your name

It's not over, oh no
I don't wanna live like that
I don't want to live without it

It's not over, oh no
I don't wanna live that live
I don't want to live without you

I picked up the phone, dialing numbers I've known
Searching pages for traces
The lines are all down, I'm lost and then found
I've been calling for ages, oh no

I call out your name
Track Name: Daylight
Daylight, sunlight
Throw back the curtains that are blocking the sun
Fade out, hold tight
No matter what we do the starlight is cutting through us

And I feel like the suicide is over and done
The night is falling and the day has already been won

Tell me a beautiful lie
Show me all the stars in your eyes
The stars in your eyes

Big lights, stage light
I know the lines to sing, I know the part that I play
Soundtrack, fade to black
No matter what we say the starlight is shinning on us

And I feel like a phoenix living under the gun
Burning brighter now I'm rising up to meet the sun

Tell me a beautiful lie
Show me all the stars in your eyes

Hold on, daylight
And we hold on, daylight

Tell me a beautiful lie
Show me all the stars in your eyes
The stars in your eyes

Daylight is a beautiful lie
Track Name: Let It Ride
It's like looking through broken glass
So many versions of me
The tokens of my regard
Are lost, out at sea

It's gone without a trace
So let it ride
I won't forget your face
So let it ride
Let it ride again

All miracles are performed
With a little help from my friends
The obvious question here
Is when does this end?

It's gone without a trace
So let it ride
I won't forget your face
So let it ride
Let it ride again
Track Name: Narcotic Shotgun
I run fast, are you ready?
You run faster than light
Here...we...go

Dark constellation through city starlight
A fractured angel, your look is twisted right
Narcotic shotgun, another heart attack
I can't escape your love,
I want you back

I hide out the sky is falling
You find me my world is falling in, on, me

Dark constellation through city starlight
A fractured angel, your look is twisted right
Narcotic shotgun, another heart attack
I can't escape your love
I want you back

I want you back
