Dash Lunde Love the atmosphere of this album, especially Dear Ghost, which needs to be in a movie. Saw the new stuff at Sunnyvale, can't wait for the new album. Favorite track: Dear Ghost.

Track Name: Keeper
You keep my heart in beat
Pounding at the walls
But when I hear you breathe
I'm covered in doubt

You keep my heart in race
Banging at the walls
Begging you to hear
Its calls

You keep my heart
In your palm
You think it's sweet to eat
Me raw
Track Name: All I've Got
I can honestly say
I don’t know any better
That’s all I know at all
I could analyze all day
I wouldn’t get much further
In knowing what to say

It’s all I’ve got, I love you
It’s my reason and excuse
It’s all I’ve got, I love you
Though I fear that it’s no use
At all

If I were wiser, if I were older
If I were kinder, and a little bit warmer
And If I’d have grown up
With a better example
Than I just might know how to handle this
But if I were wiser, if I were older
I’d have never cried on your shoulder
Our paths would be clean
Our hearts would be lighter
Who knows if our lives would be duller or brighter

It’s all I’ve got, I love you
It’s my reason and excuse
It’s all I’ve got, I love you
Though I fear that it’s no use
Track Name: Dear Ghost
I’m stuck in the hallway
Did the truth escape me?
Did it creep to your bedside,
Like a ghost in the night?

Did it harden your bones,
are you so cold inside?

I’m stuck in your doorway
With your ghost right beside me
And the words that you didn’t dare to say
They still haunt me every day

Well I don’t care if the ghost takes me
I don’t care if the ghost takes me

You left without saying goodbye
Stood there and watched me cry
You left without saying goodbye
Track Name: Nowhere
Once I was no one
When I was nowhere
Driving in mid-air
But I’d like it greatly
If you would take me
Back where I’m somebody somewhere
Under the rainbow

Once I was someone
When I was somewhere
Lost in a blank stare
But I’d like it greatly
If you would let me
Go back where I’m nobody nowhere
Over the rainbow
Track Name: Taming a Human
Maybe you’re right, maybe I’m wrong
‘Cuz I over-analyze the words to each song
And I’d like to believe that there’s something beyond
What is plain to the eye

But maybe it’s simple, maybe it’s clear
Maybe I’m just torturing myself
Trying to find meaning in something that never was
And never will be

Maybe you’re scared
And underprepared
To deal with things that are beyond the surface
Like the responsibility of shared experiences
And the responsibility of taming a human

Maybe we’re polar opposites
Sharing the same universe
Maybe you were sent to me to show me
The other side of this earth

Maybe I’m right, maybe you’re wrong
But so am I
Maybe you’re scared and underprepared
But so am I

So I’ll be your friend, show you the ends of my world
If you’ll be my friend, show me the ends of your world

And share the responsibility of taming a human
Track Name: Waters
I thought you were
My resting place
You took me under water
A perfect blue escape

Blue escape

When we were speaking under water
Everything seemed clear
The blue luminescence
Cast a light on you, my dear
And like the treasures on the shore
So became our past
We planned that we would stay here
Forever under

Blue waters

I whispered something under water
You could barely hear
There was no one else to listen
Nobody was near
I said I thought that I could stay here
In this resting place
But we’re floating at a distance
And struggling for

Air
