about

A CHAOS OF DESIRE is the 4th Black Tape For A Blue Girl album. It was recorded in 1990 and released in early 1991. It was always one of my favorites, it's quite dark - Oscar and Julianna's vocals are wonderful. And I love the instrumental segments featuring violinist Vicki Richards. It really captured the pain and chaos of a broken heart.

"Black Tape For A Blue Girl is a treasure of a band. Their sound is lush, full and beautiful, which is not to say wimpy. This is beauty with an edge, perhaps even a slightly desperate air. Vicki Richards supplies sensuous violin lines. Recommended." - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE (1991)

Enjoy the music. It came out of a bleak time for me. But I think it's a beautiful album.

Track Name: a chaos of desire
knowing your voice could awaken me, is what makes my life impossible

knowing we've severed every tie, yet remain bound to each other
knowing how i long for the one i once loved, the one who once loved me

knowing what i've lost, what is it like to have that beyond reach?

knowing that your voice will destroy any new dreams i create

knowing i'll do the things that you desire

life moves on. lie in wait. unaffected. unconscious.

knowing that your voice will destroy any new dreams i believe in

a chaos of desire

knowing i love you...

there's no longer, anything i can do

there's no longer, anything i can do about it.
Track Name: pandora's box
Innocent, embraces turned to dream
In textures like lovers but would I go through with this?

Entangled, enraptured, entwined our bodies lie
Your kiss, the fear, my thoughts explode... didn't you notice I wanted you?
Pandora's box, trapped within the tree of knowledge
Desire's there, my longing despair, how could it have led us here?
She said she was the flame, all that's touched, consumed
She said that she burned through those that she loved
Somehow I thought we could not be harmed, but we lost our innocence

I'm sorry for falling in love with you. I'm sorry for tearing us apart.
What's really there? Curiosity? Burning through all that we loved.
I'm sorry for falling in love with you. I'm sorry for tearing us apart.
Unleashed despair, desire's there, hope is all that remains.

(have you forsaken me?)
(have you forsaken me?)
I'm sorry for falling in love with you. I'm sorry for tearing us apart.
Unleashed despair, desire's here, hopes all remain inside.
Pandora's box, the innocent. Why does it seem I always blame?
For what i did, for what i did, didn't you notice I wanted you?
I'm sorry for falling in love with you.
All that's touched was consumed... all that's touched was consumed
... we lost our innocence.
Track Name: the hypocrite is me
Once I found my inner truths
Now I'm lost, I cannot act, still bound by the rules
Bury my feelings deep inside
"emotionally impotent,” your words turn shard and fall
"incapable of love,” as you slash through the air
The biggest risk to be myself

Shine shuddered lights into my eyes
I cannot escape, unending lies
My inspiration turns to my disguise
