about

Faced with a weekend of recovery from a minor surgery, I wanted to try my hand at a more acoustic sound, so I challenged myself to make a 3-song EP in one day. Hey Lina is about a parrot falling in love with a fairy. Dirtbag is a song from my old band The Rain Brigade. Safe In Your Arms is me being as open as I can about staying rooted in the love of Christ. It's a little eclectic, but I hope you enjoy it!

about

Anchorage Orlando, Florida

Anchorage is Caitlin Pequignot. Armed with an iMac and a MIDI controller, I began Anchorage in 2007 as an experiment. When it began, I wanted to write songs that bridged the gap between the kids blasting Usher at school and the ones debating the intricacies of Mozart at youth orchestra rehearsal; with that thought in mind, the fledgling days of Anchorage were born. ... more

Track Name: Hey Lina
hey lina
you may have lost your crown
but when you sing the sound it makes me see
things a parrot like me has never known
but now that i've been shown have got to be

but how could you love a feathered wretch like me?
and how could my screeches be music you need?

but hey lina
if you think you wouldn't mind
having our wings entwined give me a ring

hey lina
did you notice when you fly
you always look behind you for a while
and i don't know what's flying in your wake
but i wish you would take a rest and smile

but how could you love a feathered wretch like me?
and how could my screeches be music you need?

so lina
if you're ever in the trees
would you save a spot on that old branch for me?

but how could you love a feathered wretch like me?
and how could my screeches be music you need?

so hey lina
you may have lost your crown
but when you sing the sound it makes me free
when you sing the sound it makes me, me.
Track Name: Dirtbag
burn my time my dime my innocence
feigned ignorance gets old
belittle literally every misstep
then expect me to accept how you think it should go

but overdone makeup won't make this better
and make-up time will take us forever
but after all the kissing and the sickly sweet nothings
there's nothing to tempt me but empty discussion

on the wrong side, fighting all the time
baby you know i've been out of line
fighting on the wrong side, fighting all the time
so don't blame me if your party don't shine

been fighting for three plus hours
i'm not sure what i should do
mascara smudge, bear a grudge
being in love don't look like the movies do

so stop throwing your shade my way when
i've got plenty of shadows for two
and i'll never forget it since c. finn said it
i've got a real bad case of noisemaker blues
Track Name: Safe in Your Arms
tell me something i've been told
that my imagination has no hold on me
well that's a lie i'll tell you why
i have suffered far and wide because
my imagination got the best of me.

but all this time i was safe in Your arms
and all this time i was safe in Your arms
in You

coming south it had its risks
i'm staring into the abyss of time
time to write and time to find
the pieces that i left behind
when i went north and lost the best of me

but all this time i was safe in Your arms
and all this time i was safe in Your arms
in You
