about

Indie folk-rock artist Nate Hrivnak opens up in Heartstrings & Hidden Things, a four-track compilation of songcraft and musicianship that delivers a sonic landscape both uniformly excellent and stylistically diverse. Aptly titled, the album's composition deals with an intrinsic desire to define the intangibles, exploring both current and forgone passions and igniting a sincere and vulnerable quality consistent throughout. It's in this space where his songs live and breathe - his lyrics colorfully stitched, genuinely expressed, and brilliantly represented.

Track Name: Histamine
My love it aches like a heart attack
If you walk out on my please don’t look back
A piece of it you take will leave a hole
You can have my pride but you can’t take my soul

I stop. I stare
Too many times I’ve made advances
But now, pretty girl
With you I’m gonna take my chances

I see you walking’ down the street
The heart in your hand still skips a beat
Your looks to kill are my life supply
And I’m willing to risk it all before I die

I stop. I stare
Too many times I’ve made advances
But now, pretty girl
With you I’m gonna take my chances
Tell me this time my love how you getting home?

This time I’ve had enough of you
Every failed attempt becomes an IOU
I just want to open up your eyes
To stop the tears from swelling up inside

“It’s not you, it’s me” - you say again
Why can’t we ever be more than just friends?
Before you go, I’m begging, begging please
The look in those eyes, it sends me to my knees
It sends me to my knees, to my knees

I stop. I stare
Too many times I’ve made advances
But now, pretty girl
With you I’m gonna take my chances
Tell me this time my love how you getting home?

It’s a long, long walk ahead and it’s getting cold
So if you’d like some company please show me a sign
‘Cause when tomorrow becomes today I will make you mine
I will make you mine
Track Name: Beautiful Baby
Sunshine of mine
Please don’t walk away
‘Cause you know that I need you
I promise it’ll be ok

Sweetheart be mine
You know I love to see that smile
We can talk for hours and hours
And still I’ll stay awhile

Yea, you’ve got the cutest button nose
I don’t care if you disagree
‘Cause when your lips rest again mine
I wanna make you see
That you’re my

Beautiful Baby
And your hair’s just like the milky way
Oh your eyes how they sparkle

Well we’ll talk all night and I think I might
Squeeze ya oh so tight, won’t let you out of my sight
Tonight girl

And I will not take you for granted
Yea, my feet are planted
Like a rock I shall not move, I shall not move
How can I make you see
That you’re my

Beautiful Baby
And your hair’s just like the milky way
Oh your eyes how they sparkle

Well we’ll talk all night and I think I might
Squeeze ya oh so tight, won’t let you out of my sight
Tonight girl

Oh just tonight, just tonight

You are beautiful baby
You’re so gorgeous baby
Track Name: Overflow
It’s been far too long since I’ve seen you
I just want to belong in your arms
It’s that tender touch that I miss so much
And when you are near what else could compare?

You make me wanna sing without rhyme or reason
You make me wanna bring home flowers despite the season
Up that recipe for falling in love:
One cup of me and two cups of you

This is how it goes
Boy meets girl, the cup of love it overflows [x2]
Overflows, oh oh oh yea, it overflows

Now if I were the turtle and you were the rabbit
Would you slow down for me now? Would you now?
‘Cause lately I’ve been creating this habit
Of taking my time with the good things, let ‘em roll

This is how it goes
Boy meets girl, the cup of love it overflows [x2]
Overflows, oh oh oh yea, it overflows

So I don’t want this to be just another memory
I want to do with you what the birds and bees do too, my honey
I don’t want this to be just another memory
I think that this could be, this could be, this could be, this could be
Something yea

This is how it goes
Boy meets girl, the cup of love it overflows [x2]
Overflows, oh oh oh yea, it overflows
It overflows
Track Name: Photographer
Like the augmented reality that you see when you turn on the t.v.
She will expand your mind one shot at a time with a highly pixelated autobiography
With hazel eyes that fantasize about 3x5s falling from a vanilla sky
Comes the freeze frame paradigm of being stuck in time or space

She sees the world through a different lens [x3]
She’s the photographer, the photographer

These images that synthesize your world back to mine
Help me to realize the ever-changing tides in my relation to you
As love waxes and wanes, growing pains, it only grows deeper
Just as the moon needs the sun, we all needs someone to make our knees weaker

She sees the world through a different lens [x3]
She’s my photographer

She is my trigger-happy photographer and my love is an open aperture [x4]
