about

Ki5 Ypsilanti, Michigan

Ki5 takes you on a journey that begins with a single human voice as he creates his own musical artifacts live with his loop station. This Michigan-born artist is rare in that he relies on his body as his only instrument. Like Reggie Watts, he uses his beats to setup a playground before musically dancing around every inch of it like Bon Iver. ... more

Track Name: Say It
Wine glasses on the windowsill
City wind blowing through the screen I feel

It was you and me, It was you and me
It was you and me, It was you and me

Bliss walking eve ’til morning light
Eggshells in the sun - I’m not alright

It was you and me, It was you and me
It was you and me, It was you and me

Could you -
Could you tell me that you love me?
Could you say it

Say it if I wasn’t - wasn’t
Say it if I wasn’t leavin’
Track Name: Ghost
I go back
To the place
Where I first
Held your waist

Much is wrong
Much has changed
What's the year?
What's my name?

What's my name?
Oh...

Settle down
It's not fear
But I feel
Uneasy here

You were light
You were clear
I feel lost again
Are you still near?

Are you still near...
Ghost?

All my old friends
Wish me well
See that old girl
Who gave me hell

I walk my lines
I walk my floors
A picture of you
And I'm done for

I'm done for...
Oh...

I was no queen
You were no king
But we could have been
Anything

Everyone knew
That I'd be yours
Til flowers rained
On one of us

On one of us

I don't cry
For too long
Something says
"Love be strong"

I hear your ghost
In my ear
Please be close
Please be near

Please be near
Oh...

Please be near

I hear your ghost
In my ear
Please be close
Please be near
Track Name: Honey
Coffee stains my shirt
In the afternoon
The more I tense up
The more I waste the brew

I come home
Bitter face, ice up my sleeve
She opens her mouth
And I remember peace

She says “Honey you always look good to me…
Your mess is cute”
She lets me be

Sleep an hour
Get up at three
TV’s on
Level whispering

Clench my eyes
I can’t rest for shit
A hand sneaks up on mine
Before she sits

She says “Honey you always look good to me…
Ease your eyes”
She lets me be

“Honey you always look good to me”

“Ease your eyes”

“Honey you always look good to me…
Ease your eyes”
She lets me be

Ease my eyes…
She set me free
Track Name: The Sun pt. 1
I been on my own
Lookin’ for the sun
Waitin’ for the proof
That I'm not the only one

Living in the fog
Scared to run
Breathing misty air
Ooh, is anybody out there?

Every bump up is a hill to fall from
Happy for last week and
Sad for this one

But can anybody tell?
Do I give it up in my eyes?
Do you know me so well?

Do I try to hide it from myself? 
That I know there's a better way
Better way to live

I been on my own
Lookin’ for the sun
Waitin’ for the proof
That I'm not the only one

Sun

Round two. Reset. 
The air’s clear
But why's the sky still shaded?

And while I never thought I'd make a splash at Top of the Park
Now I'm worried that they'll figure out
I'm 'fraid of the dark

Is it you too?
Can you hear me?
How do I live well?
Can you help me see clearly

My need is dyer
Cause someday I'm set to expire

I been on my own
Lookin’ for the sun
Waitin’ for the proof
That I'm not the only one

And everybody sittin’ around me
Is smiling happy
If I wait in the back seat
Don't wait in the back seat
