Band commentary

Anna Waronker: The song “Your Machine” is about being a dreamer and how sometimes in life all we have left to do is wish and gamble without ever really knowing if we will sink or swim. There was a period in my life when I dedicated most of my time to writing for other artists. Pop artists primarily. Part of that experience was rewarding but a lot of it was very frustrating. Trying to break molds in that arena was difficult. Trying to get someone to respond was difficult. Musically, the song started out as a simple 6/8 ballad, but then I challenged myself to think a little more and a whole new arrangement popped in my head. This song is a great representation of the whole album. It is sweet and melancholic, with so many hints at that dog. from the before into that dog. now.

I am at your feet
I am at your mercy
On the edge of my seat
Believe me
There is nothing up my sleeve

I hope you know
Where I've been
How much I want to show you
What I can bring
And why I won't give in

Only time, time can tell
Cast a line, cast a spell
Throw a dime in a wishing well
Wish I live to tell (you)
Wish I live to tell (you)

I am incomplete
Impatiently awaiting your receipt
And graciously eating crumbs thrown at my feet

I hope you know what it means
For me to want to go in your machine
How I'll give it everything
