B i o g r a p h y
(Fred Thomas)

Slowly progressing from experimental beginnings to more traditional modes as her creative output took shape, Natalie Mering's work as Weyes Blood grew more straightforward without losing its haunted edginess. Starting out as part of the noise underground, she eventually cleared the sonic detritus away from her songs until they resembled more traditional folk and soft rock on gorgeously produced albums like 2019's Titanic Rising or 2022's And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow.

Multi-instrumentalist Mering cut her teeth in the world of noise and experimental rock, playing bass in Portland-based freak rock collective Jackie-O Motherfucker for a time before venturing out solo around 2006. Originally billing herself as Weyes Bluhd, Mering's earliest releases arrived in the form of limited-edition cassettes, a great testing ground for her darkly folky songs that twisted around noisy, electronic undercurrents. Weyes Bluhd embarked on several tours, including a European stint with Brooklyn experimental act Axolotl. Moving to Philadelphia, Mering continued to develop her sound, sometimes playing shows billed as Wiseblood, sometimes joined by a rotating cast of backing players she dubbed the Dark Juices. It was with one incarnation of this backing band that she made her first widely received album, 2011's The Outside Room, released on Not Not Fun Records and attributed to Weyes Blood & the Dark Juices.

Among other collaborations, Mering added guest vocals to the 2012 Ariel Pink album Mature Themes and toured with him as well. Ever nomadic, Mering relocated to rural Kentucky for a time to study herbalism, and also spent time living in New Mexico and Baltimore before eventually landing in New York City in 2012. She followed her debut in 2014 with the pristine and autumnal sounds of The Innocents, released on Mexican Summer. The Cardamom Times EP appeared in 2015. The following year, Mering and Chris Cohen co-produced Weyes Blood's second Mexican Summer full-length, Front Row Seat to Earth, to widespread acclaim. Weyes Blood and Ariel Pink collaborated on a 12" EP, Myths 002, which was released by Mexican Summer in early 2017.

"Andromeda," the first single from her fourth LP, Titanic Rising, appeared in January 2019. The album was released on Sub Pop that April to critical raves. The touring in support of Titanic Rising was lengthy, and before 2019 was up, stripped-down versions of four of the album's songs recorded during the touring cycle were released as the Rough Trade Sessions EP. In 2020, Mering sang lead on the song "Oh How We Drift Away" from comedian/actor/musician Tim Heidecker's Fear of Death album, and in 2021, she joined Lana Del Rey and Zella Day for the cover of Joni Mitchell's "For Free" that closed out Del Rey's Chemtrails Over the Country Club album. In November of 2022, fifth Weyes Blood full-length And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow was released. The album included guest appearances from Meg Duffy, harpist Mary Lattimore, and Oneohtrix Point Never's Daniel Lopatin.

The Outside Room

Storms That Breed

When you feel strange
In the end of the day
When you're down
Eyes spinning' round
Like the wheel
How do you try to feel

No one can truly cure my soul
A desert fool am I still
Without the will to greet
The pasture's eyes with my own

In the pale night
When the moon changes you
Makes you blind
Don't think twice
Let the phase pass over again

No one can truly hear me then
A broken rope
A desert's sign
I've flown too high

Let me sleep now
That I've been to the bottom and up
I've finally spilled up cup
Now I'm thin watch me spread everywhere

No one can put me back in there
In there I left this world
A roamin' far with no star

And I will go unto
When the sky takes my own key
I fair thee all well
Don't miss me
I am on the otherside
I'm still free

Lost In Dreams

The dream is living in me
To be with my baby
In the rising sun
To be with him all the time

Then we fade our reason
And walk underground
The day breaks me over
On my forehead
I am lost in dreams

Far in space the outside seems inside
Me, where I go, no time
I know, lost in my dreaming
The places come alive
And live color like real life
Which world is better
Which world is right
All of the others
Folding in time
The otherside

Which world is better
Which world is mine
In time I wish I could
Sleep endlessly
Fighting off reality
Don't fall into escape
Shape up and face the door

Candyboy

This one's bad
I'm alone in everything
Since you've been coming round
Your eyes a sea of
The mighty sound

Take me out of the swamp of emotion
My name does shout
To be rid of you
In the morning sun
We've just begun
And I watch the water rise
What can be done

This one's bad enough
And all fire birds sing like those
Waterfalls of your mirror
So high and unclear

Don't fear the cursed dawn
Let it drag on
I'll sing you baby

One sad morning song
Don't let the empty feeling haunt you still
I will make us our last bitter pill

This one's bad enough
I'm alone in everything since
You been coming round
Trying to break me back down

Don't fear the missing feeling
Let it die
All lovers will have their time
And I'll be your window
You see through me and I see through you

Romneydale

Oh pictures of Romneydale still surge through my brain
The last lady standing there with her backwards name
You could not say it forwards
You could not give it a sound
I stood there on my hiding day far outside of town

And I lift my head
Not to be fed
Into her awful ground
I'll be scattered like bees on vines
With their own group mind

When you're stuck in the pictures of you
You're all wrapped up now
In your new costume
And the lights grow dim as
You fade in your tomb
The mirror is selfish it holds
Onto you
Will I ever be seen
In a life that's true
If my body leaves is my soul made now?
The name is backwards
You cannot give it a sound
Well I'm over there
I gotta way to get home
Again I'm so fine
When I get both
Ends in Romneydale

I'll be there on the rocks
The jagged rocks, counting waves
Across my animal sky
Two birds always sing
From the left
And from the right
Don't get close to one side
Oh when I die in the tied
Where she dwells holding onto my body
Will be my only hell

His Song

I can't speak for both of us
It's not right to
Say I see you there
In the moments of despair
Longing for what's past

I won't leave our
Small world to burn
But I know it is
My turn to let you go

I don't know when or
If ever again
I will feel this way
Cancer eyes like rain
You get everywhere sideways
That's how you left me
Will I feel the home I felt in you
Or was I just blind
With youth dreams
That curse the sky

Now that I know it's true
I can let go
When will I know my endless lover
Never seems to go

Oh since I met you the sky seems
So unclear
Will I eve find you near
Dawn the red window does die
Will I ever say goodbye my dear
Like a circle that goes through
I am always around

The Innocents

Land Of Broken Dreams

As I stand up to the wall
In fear to define history
What lies right in front of me
Can't feel as good as it used to be

And the dead, any American is found
To feel at times blue
What can you do
When you're sedated
And put through the failure
Of some man's world

Stand by to believe
In the land of the free
Whatever you want it to be

Desperate minds, desperate times
To see the altar smashed over
By this beast
Hours spent, an infinite feast
With the screen to devise
Your fantasy

And when I walk, oh, how I walk
To stand and be tall on this burial ground
The faint sound
The echo of what they first found
Must stand on somewhere

Stand by to believe
In the land of the free
Whatever you want it to be

So I didn't learn a thing in school
About being one with star
Chances are
We're more far
In the curse that divides
The sun from you

My family
My country and my school
Have all left me dry
To wonder why
We were just born to buy then die
And change nothing

In this time
You must be strong
Find your song
Now

In this time
You must move on
Don't fall behind
Now

Hang On

Oh no, it's me
Caught up again
Inside my tomb
Making plans
I give you more
Than I have
This wrecking game
Feels so bad

Who can see behind their eyes
Who can tell what is wrong or true
Is it just you?
To hold out till the end, alone
Must I own my will
To be strong and hang on

I will hang on
When the rains come
And wash away
All I've come from
The burning spear
Of desire
No longer takes me
Any higher

Who can see behind their eyes
Who can tell what is wrong or true
Let it be you
From the start
Cause you know what to live for
Never goes, it just knows
And makes you move on

I will hang on
I will hang on

Oh, I feel free
When idle time no longer coils
'round this heart of mine
I now can see
What light looks like
The battlefield's
Just in your mind

Who can see behind their eyes
Who can tell what is wrong or true
Let it be you
To be pushed
And to never stop giving
You must own your will
To be strong and hang on
To be strong

Some Winters

You won't hold me in my arms anymore
We've paid our price
Learned from the sores
I'm already gone

The house of stone we built has turned into sand
And you know I'd still hold your hand
A hope I can't conceal
The memory how we used to feel

Some winters end in loss and pain
And thus all love ended in shame

Shame - that I was broken as a woman can be
And I don't think you'll ever see
The hours of the dawn
That I still suffer on

Some winters end in loss and pain
And thus all love ended this way
In shame

Go on leave me for the last time
You can't save me again
Again

Oh, love is what you get
Who knows how to start all when it ends
And I wish we could still be friends
But we won't end that way
Sometimes there is just no more to say

Some winters end in loss and pain
And thus all love ended in shame
In shame

Summer

Summer is gone
I can't wait
For the time to be alone
And think about what I've done

Entire summer's gone
And its time to put
My jacket on
And say goodbye
Or I'll try

Trying to cure
Cureless things
Weighing the moth
And drinking the storm
I will be forever yours
At least until this fall

Entire summer's gone
And its time to let
Bygones be bygones
My dear
There's nothing to fear

Each time I lose step
Further and further
From who I am
I won't forget what you showed me
You showed me
How to just be

Summer's gone

Requiem For Forgiveness

I will forgive you
Days in my life
Are numbered and so rare
Holding pain
Is not living in truth

I forgive you
I have no more to hold onto

The ship has left my harbor
No longer as time sets us free
I hope you forgive me
As the past fades away sweetly

I have learned how to forgive you

Ashes

Lead astray
By a turn in the wheel
And now I'm afraid
By how you made me feel

How bad to dream
More of things untrue
Ashes of you
Still haunt me this way
Still haunt me this way

Stained by your sun
With your eyes open wide
You once let me inside
Now the time passes me by

How bad to dream
More of things untrue
Ashes of you
Still haunt me this way
Still haunt me this way
This way now
Still to this day
Still to this day

In my own tomb
Where I like to keep you
All tangled into
My own very vision of loss

How bad to dream
More of you today
I'll throw your ashes away
Right now
Right this day
I'll let them blow away
Away

Now I'm on my own
Now I'm all alone
My heart longs for
Where the grass is green
The meadow I destroy
So that I am free

Bad Magic

Get out of bed
Put on some clothes
And find your shoes
At least there's nothing more
You could really lose, now is there

Drink a cup, had enough
The sky don't shine on me anymore
Since I been staring here at this floor
For too many days
Lost my way
And got on this train that's running away
It's carried me this far
But now I can't stay
Now, ohhhh-ohhhh

Pretty bad magic
Pretty tragic
On a runaway train
And I'm not going insane
Things just don't stay the same
And I must find a new way

Make the best of death
And love what's left
You're not just a timebomb
Just 'cause you went off
Don't mean you're scattered
Everywhere
It's still there, in the palms of your hands
Just give it one more chance
Don't wait to understand
Just find a new way

Pretty bad magic
Pretty tragic
On a runaway train
And I'm not going insane
Things just don't stay the same
And I must find a new way

One more day
My soul can give
It'll work out for me
When I need the man
That makes the blind see
Through me
See through me
See through me

February Skies

February skies
And tombstone morrows
Fires die
As I wait for thee
Heaven sent me
To your doorway
Without the right key

Now I wear my own heart, open
To changes in the wind

All alone now I'm
Now I'm all alone
You must carry your stone
This winter day
On your own

Build your fire ever higher
You're going to need
That light to see
Mind or matter
Which one burns faster?
It's your call
When you fall

All alone now I'm
Now I'm all alone
You must carry your stone
This winter day
On your own

First day of spring
Winter must bring
First day of spring
Winter must bring
First day of spring
Winter must bring
Well, you weary child
Wondered so long
Now you can follow
The sun
The sun

Fool or folly
Choose your doorway
To stay behind
And waste your time
I will find my someone someday
I'll find a friend
To break bread

All alone now I'm
Now I'm all alone
You must carry your stone
This winter day
On your own

Montrose

- They say you killed a man
- Do you believe them

- Everything you say to me, I believe

Bound To Earth

Bound to earth
Chained in madness
And foolish games
That we like to play
Sin and mothers
Pain from others
Who thinks of home
When it seems so still
It's hard to be real
But you must see the salt
In your own free will

And the sun
Carries on
Drawing me near
And the times
Have their lines
In space and rhyme
The beauty we hide

Bound to earth
Made by air
With a mind to see
Past my hurried feelings
Fire eyes
Mission cries
Don't fall asleep
To the treasure you keep

If we run and pretend
We're no friend
Of her
How it feels
To admit it's all real
This sphere
Guided us here

Bound to earth
Chained in madness
In love and in pain
On our physical plain

Front Row Seat To Earth

Diary

I stand apart from the rest
I had so much to give
Where does my life go
Those close to me may know
I've squandered my time
Got rid of that dream of mine
And now you can't stay
Please, baby, don't go away

Just give me more time
I'll change my mind
I'll change
I'll change

I stand apart from the rest
I now must confess
I play a selfish game
Only I'm the one to blame

I have squandered my mind
Got rid of that dream of mine
And now you gotta leave
Baby, take pity on me
We can leave all the pain behind
Gettin' rid of that vice of mine

Just give me more time
I'll change my mind
I'll change
I'll change

I'll change my mind
I'll change
I'll change

I'll change
I'll change
I'll change
I'll change

Used To Be

In spite of being so late to the game
I won't fight fate
It's now too late

Used to be the one that knew me
Saw through me
Used to be the one that knew

And every morning when I rise
Those cold, blue eyes aren't here too
The worst came true
The binds that break and shatter off
When you fall down from the top
And your heart stops

Used to be the one that knew me
Saw through me
Used to be the one that knew

And if the dawn don't break me
If I don't become after
No time to go back and find who was chasing which disaster
I hold the truth like a tight noose
And sometimes you do

It's getting hard to get along with your new love song so soon
Can it really be true?

The binds that break and shatter off when you fall down from the top
And your heart stops

Used to be the one that knew me
Saw through me
Used to be the one that knew me
You used to be the one that knew me

You used to be the one

Be Free

It's sad to dream
It constantly seems
Like there's no light at the end of my tunnel
False dreams and promises
How do I get through to you?
Tried to do the best I could
Loved you just like a girl should
Somewhere I got stuck on you

It's just the two of us
And I want you to be free
Don't worry about me
I got my thing

Stay close to the edge and try to admit it
That you gave it away when you started to care and I cared
A long, long time of mine I waited for you to come around
I found a one-way street, that's me
Still hanging on to set you free, make you believe
I'm yours

It's just the two of us
And I want you to be free
Don't worry about me
I got my thing
I will never fear when you're not with me

Do You Need My Love

Tired of feeling so had
The world that I knew just fell through
And left me outside
And we may be blind more than the others
How it feels so good to feel how I wanna feel
Ever since I saw those lion eyes
Those tired feelings hide behind your cigarette nights
Your love
Breaking apart inside

Do you need me the way I need you
Let's be true for a change

Do you need someone
Do you need my love
Need my love

Tired of feeling so bad
Giving away everything
Gonna learn to take the pain
I know that your love stings
Passion is the only thing
Passion must mean everything
I felt your body scream to be set free
From the pain of what's gone
I'll move you along

Do you need me the way I need you
Let's be true for a change

Do you need someone
Do you need my love
Need my love

Everyone who knows me
Knows I'm crazy for loving you, baby
Do you need me like I need you
Tell me what I could do
Do you need me, need me

Do you need me the way I need you

Generation Why

Going to see end of days
I've been hanging on my phone all day
And the fear goes away
I might not need to stay
On this sinking ship for long

I can give it away everyday
I can fly and spend all my seconds
Like they're my last
It's not the past that scares me
Now what a great future this is gonna be

Y-o-l-o, why
Y-o-l-o, why

Used to think it was bad
That we were all going mad
But now it's fine to leave
Goodbye those old things
Carry me through the waves of change

Carry me through the waves of change
I know my place
It's a beautiful thing

Y-o-l-o, why
Y-o-l-o, why
Y-o-l-o, why

Can't Go Home

Walking along, bridge is so long
When will I ever reach the other side
Time, time flies
Woke up this way in the morning
Faint from the heat that follows me
Everywhere I run no one's got a door open for more

And I wouldn't have it any other way
I can't go home again
And all the riot times and fire nights
Burning my body
My stars that shine
Take me back

Oh, no, not again
Stuck here in truth

Fighter, do the right thing
Can you suffer more
Let the world carve at your heart
Don't need a home if you come apart
I have moved more than I can count
Twist and turn trying to learn

And I wouldn't change my fate
Do you look like me when you fight
My stars align somewhere
I'll be back
And if I'm blind to what I feel
I hope I can love still, dear
I hope you will

Oh, no, not again
Stuck here with you

Seven Words

These seven words I say to you, one by one
I love you and you have to know

If I could change how I'm insane
If I could learn to leave my troubles behind
It's starting to hurt and I know you moved on
Telling everyone how I done you so wrong

Cat scratch a beast
My words that made you bleed
Now I face tomorrow
Now I face tomorrow

In time we'll both be free from this ball and chain
Hanging on to things
I want you mostly in the morning
When my soul is weak from dreaming

When the dust has cleared
And you forget that I'm here
Hanging on
I've been hanging

Who had the last word
I'm telling you first
Who had the last word
I'm telling you first

These seven words are no longer mine
Who am I but a stranger who took you down
It's starting to burn and I wanna go home
Only home I've known
Lost in the storm

It had to be seven words to set us free
Now I face tomorrow
Now I face tomorrow
Now I face tomorrow

Away Above

Away, above
Find a perfect love
You and me (and me)
We're meant to see it through
You and me (and me)
You and me (and me)

I don't feel bad for you
And that's what makes us free
You can buy into that dream
Waitin' for true love to seem real
Passing over bridges
Faces wanna listen
I hope that we'll go home
I want to be alone
Won't you come meet me at nine
I'll bring your worst fears if you bring mine
And we can laugh over a night of red wine
Got a radio to pay the dream
Necessary evil
Are we meant to be
I swear that you know me more than I'll ever know

Away (away), above (above)
Find a perfect love
You (and you) and me (and me)
It was meant to see some time through
Yeah, you
And me
Oh, I won't hold back from you

Sometimes I can't even feel the wheel's broken from pushing still
And the lines of knowing and being undone
Some things you just gotta run away from

But that doesn't change us
Away and above
What you give is good enough
Got me living in the dream

Away (away), above (above)
Find a perfect love
You (and you) and me (and me)
We were meant to see some time through
Yeah, you
And me
Oh, I won't hold back from you


Three Tears

Walk into my desert storm
No water I find
The earth, it scorns
My feet carry me long in the day
I wouldn't change if it made you stay

I'm not crazy
Been enough lately
Who wants nothing
Three tears and then goodbye

Come meet me by my shore
Where wind and water come to roar
I must keep moving like these waves
My mind in one place
Watch me escape

I'm not crazy
Been enough lately
Who wants nothing
Three tears and then goodbye

Three tears and then goodbye
It took me for a ride
If I can't see, then got to leave
You know I'm sorry

I'm not crazy
Been enough lately
Who wants nothing
Three tears and then goodbye

Three tears and then goodbye
It took me for a ride
If I was mean, or acted unclean
You know I'm sorry

Three tears and then goodbye
It took me for a ride
If I was mean, or acted unclean
You know I'm sorry

Three tears
If I can't see, I've got to leave
You know I'm sorry

Titanic Rising

A Lot's Gonna Change

If I could go back to a time before now
Before I ever fell down
Go back to a time when I was just a girl
When I had the whole world
Gently wrapped around me
And no good thing could be taken away
If I still believe that hearts don't lie
You're gonna be just fine
But, babe

A lot's gonna change
In your lifetime
Try to leave it all behind
In your lifetime

Born in a century lost to memories
Falling trees, get off your knees
No one can keep you down
If your friends and your family
Sadly don't stick around
It's high time you learned to get by

'Cause you got what it takes
In your lifetime
Try to leave it all behind
In your lifetime

Let me change my words
Show me where it hurts

Andromeda

Andromeda's a big, wide open galaxy
Nothing in it for me except a heart that's lazy
Running from my own life now
I'm really turning some time
Looking up to the sky for something I may never find

Stop calling
It's time to let me be
If you think you can save me
I'd dare you to try

Lift the heart from the depths it's fallen to
We all want something new
But can't seem to follow through
Something's better than nothing
Or so that I thought
Now I know it's just one dream
All these others gonna tear me apart

Love is calling
It's time to let it through
Find a love that will make you
I dare you to try

Crazy guy
I think this is deep
Think it's meant to be
More than anything I can think of
I'm ready to try

Treat me right
I'm still a good man's daughter
Let me in if I break
And be quiet if I shatter
Getting tired of looking
You know that I hate the game
Don't wanna waste any more time
You know I been holding out

Love is calling
It's time to give to you
Something you can hold onto
I dare you to try

Everyday

Wake up, baby
It's getting late now
Fell so hard like I always do
I'm so scared of being alone
It's true, it's true
I see you everyday
But that's not enough
I got this seeker running along a lonely line
Always trying to make my keeper mine

It gets me every time
Then again, I might be falling down

Sailing off on the ships to nowhere
Got a lot of things to clear away
Got a lot of years of bad love to make okay

It gets me every day
Then again, it might just be me
Then again, love's not easy

I need a love everyday
I need

True love is making a comeback
For only half of us, the rest just feel bad
Doomed to wander in the world's first rodeo
You never let it show
The other night, I was at a party
And someone sincerely looked at me
And said, "Is this the end of all monogamy?"
And I said, "Not today
Then again, you might be right
Then again, sleep the night"

I need a love everyday
I need

Lay down, my guy
For a short time
I cannot see (I cannot see)
My love is right
Lay down, my guy

Drank a lot of coffee today
Got lost in the fray, I gave all I had for a time
Then by some strange design I got a case of the empties
The ruler of my world, a lost forgotten pearl
When fire leaves a girl
Too burned to dry my life
Living on a fault line
And then I

I just laid down and cried
The waters don't really go by me
Give me something I can see
Something bigger and louder than the voices in me
Something to believe

Didn't always do it right
Might have left the heat on high
Didn't know I had any left
Thought I finally met my death
Gonna do all I can
Stay away from the quicksand
Gonna do all I can

Nobody's gonna love you the same way
Some of us go astray, I walk so far from them all
Instead of dropping the ball, I seem to carry so many
The colors don't align, a question of time
I seem to lose what I find
Please give me a sign soon
Really wanna find out the truth
And then Ió

I just laid down and cried
The waters don't really go by me
Give me something I can see
Something bigger and louder than the voices in me
Something to believe, to believe
Something to believe
Something to believe
Something to believe
Something to believe

Movies

This is how it feels to be in love
This is life from above
There's no books anymore
I'm bound to that summer
Big box office hit
Making love to a counterfeit

Why did so many
Get a rise out of me
I love the movies

Some people feel what some people don't
Some people watch until they explode
The meaning of life doesn't seem to shine like that screen

Put me in a movie and everyone will know me
You'll be the star you know you are
The movies I watched when I was a kid
The hopes and the dreams
Don't give credit to the real things
I love the movies

I know the meaning
I know the story
I know the glory
I love movies

I wanna be in my own movie
I wanna be
I wanna be the star of mine
Of my own, my own
My own
I wanna be the star
I wanna be
I wanna be the star of mine
Of my own, my own
My own

Mirror Forever

No one's ever gonna give you a trophy
For all the pain and the things you've been through
No one knows but you
Kinda crazy when you're looking right through me
Something forceful about yourself
Just say the word and baby, know that I'll be there
I'm not scared

And I see it so clearly
That we play hard
Yes, we love our love
Most of all
But the time we spent
In this situation circumstance
I'll see you around
The next time you come to town
I'll see you around
The next time you call

You're a demon with a scary picture
I'm a dreamer and you're a tiger
Got a feeling our romance doesn't stand a chance
Stand a chance to last
You threw me out of the garden of Eden
Lift me up just to let me fall hard
Can't stand being your second best

And I see it so clear
We play hard
Yes, we love our love
Most of all
But the time we spent
In this situation circumstance
I'll see you around
The next time you come to town
I'll see you around
The next time you call

Oh baby, take a look in the mirror
Oh baby, take a look in the mirror
Oh baby, take a look in the mirror
Oh baby, take a look in the mirror

And I see it so clear
That we play hard
Yes, we love our love
Most of all
But the time we spent
In this situation circumstance
I'll see you around
The next time you come to town
I'll see you around
I'll see you around
I'll see you around
The next time you call

Wild Time

Look around
There's nothing left to keep
By the bottles that broke you
From the solace you seek
Didn't know you were one in a million
Stuck inside the wall
I'm wondering how we ever got here
With no fear, we'd fall

Taking hold of our eyes
Beauty, a machine that's broken
Running on a million people trying
Don't cry, it's a wild time to be alive

Turn around it's time for you to slowly
Let these changes make you more holy and true
Otherwise, it just made it complicated for nothing
Warm and cold, a place for us too far

Living in the rising sun
Our life, a feeling that's moving
Running on a million people burning
Don't cry, it's a wild time to be alive

It already happened
Nothing you want to change more
Heaven found that life went down
Everyone's broken now and no one knows just how
We could have all gotten so far from truth

Love, pain, loving you
Everyone knows you just did what you had to
Burning much more than ever before
Burning down the door
It's a wild time to be alive

Picture Me Better

Picture me better
I finally found the time to write you this letter
To the stars and moon for you
And it's coming back soon
Don't need no money when you're around
And you're making me act funny
Can't help to smile with those eyes that shine
Only, if only you could see

You got it all in spades
Got a lot of dreams and songs to say
Hearts to break
Waiting for the call from beyond
Waiting for something with meaning
To come through soon

Picture us better
We finally found a winter for your sweater
Got a brand new big suit of armour
It's tough, since you left I've grown so much
If I could have seen you just once more
Tell you how much you're adored
There's no point anymore

Waiting for the call from beyond
Waiting for something with meaning
To come through soon

 

And In The Darkness, Hearts Aglow

It's Not Just Me, It's Everybody

Sitting at this party
Wondering if anyone knows me
Really sees who I am
Oh, it's been so long since I felt really known
Fragile in the morning
Can't hold on to much of anything
With this hole in my hand
I can't pretend that we always keep what we find
Oh, yes everybody splits apart sometimes

Living in the wake of overwhelming changes
We've all become strangers
Even to ourselves
We just can't help
We can't see from far away
To know that every wave might not be the same
But its all apart of one big thing

Oh, it's not just me, it's not just me
It's not just me, it's everybody (Everybody)

Everybody, everybody, everybody

Mercy is the only
Cure for being so lonely
Has a time ever been more revealing
That the people are hurting
Oh, it's not just me
I guess it's everybody
Yes, we all bleed the same way

Oh, it's not just me, it's not just me
It's not just me, it's everybody (Everybody)

Everybody, everybody, everbody
Everybody, everybody, everbody

Oh, it's not just me, it's not just me
It's not just me, it's everybody
It's not just me

Children Of The Empire

Lookin' like some clear skies
Have finally opened up my eyes
Livin' in a lost time
The dawning of a brand new man
So much blood on our hands
The king and queen of being lonely
Children of the empire see
That we're all lost

Comes a cost walking in the labyrinth without love
How much can you take
And when are you gonna be ok
Gain control of what we made
Instead of being afraid
Children of the empire say

That we're long gone
In that eternal flame
Trying to break away
From the mess we made
Oh we don't have time anymore to be afraid

We tend to live long that's why so many things go wrong
People selling the young blood
I guess that's the price you pay
Make desire but no one wins
Won't the fire burn us in
Before we get a chance to love again
Children understand that they pay for their sins
Seize control of what they made
Before we all fade away
Children of the empire wanna change

Cause we're long gone
In that eternal flame
Trying to break away
From the mess we made
Oh we don't have time anymore
To be afraid, anymore

Children of the empire know
Know that they're not free
Even though they wanna be free
We know that we're not free
Even though
We wanna be free

Grapevine

If a man can't see his shadow
He can block your sun all day
He can make you small
He has the power to take his love away
Six hours on the grapevine
And I feel kidnapped this time
Cause my baby thinks
He always believes
That he's, always right

But I still think of him at night
And ooh, you know I would
Go back to the camp
With the kerosene lamps in the woods
Ooh when you were mine
And I was yours for a time

On the Grapevine
On the Grapevine

California's my body
And your fire runs over me
My car broke down
In an old ghost town right around
Where they got James Dean
Emotional Cowboy
With no hat and no boots
He stayed up all night
Trying to beat up the moon

And ooh, you know I would
Go back to the camp
With the kerosene lamps in the woods
Oh when you were mine
And I was yours for a time

On the Grapevine
On the Grapevine

Don't know when I'm gonna see you boy
Oh I've been waiting for the time
When I see the light shining across
The freeway late at night
Start to drift, over the land
It hits me for the first time
Now we're just two cars passing by
On the grapevine

On the Grapevine
On the Grapevine
On the Grapevine

God Turn Me Into A Flower

As long as I stand
To face the crowd
To know my name
To know its sound
It's good to be soft when they push you down
Oh, God, turn me into a flower

It always takes me
Such a curse to be so hard
You shatter easily and can't pick up all those shards
It's the curse of losing yourself when the mirror takes you too far
Oh, God, turn me into a flower

You see the reflection
And you want it more than the truth
You yearn to be that dream you could never get to
'Cause the person on the other side has always just been you
Oh, God, turn me into a flower

Hearts Aglow

Oh hearts aglow
We don't know where we're going
Looking for love
In all the wrong places
We don't know where our love has gone

I was so bored
Take me to the water babe
Show me what it's like to be yours
'Cause I was so bored
Take me to the water
I'd give anything to hang

I've been without friends
Oh I've just been working
For years and I stopped having fun
Oh but baby you're the only one
Who'll drive me down to the pier
Take me up on that Ferris wheel

Oh hearts aglow, we don't know
Where we're going
We just keep
Gettin' higher, hearts aglow
You can't control hearts aglow
I'm staring at that black water down below
Knowing I could fall if I let go, hearts aglow

Might be the moon
Or the cotton candy or he
Might be a man
Who actually understands me

'Cause it's been a death march
The whole world is crumbling
Oh baby let's dance in the sand
'Cause I've been waiting for my life to begin
For someone
To light up my heart again
And in the darkness
I can guide you in
We're rising over the tide
Up on the Ferris wheel at night

Oh hearts aglow, we don't know
Where we're going
We just keep
Gettin' higher, hearts aglow
You can't control hearts aglow
I'm staring at that black water down below
Knowing I could fall if I let go, hearts aglow

Rising over the tide
Oh hold me tight
But I'm scared I might fall
Just like the water below
You don't get to know
If your love has all
It's gonna take

Oh hearts aglow
We don't know where we're going
Oh hearts aglow
We don't know where we're going

Twin Flame

And how I tried
So hard to hide the pain
What bad temper we're keeping
And so I followed a light
Into the night
And you kept me waiting
In the dark with no place to hide

'Cause we are more than our disguises
We are more than just the pain
And I'm standing here laughing at my shame

'Cause you're my twin flame
You're my twin flame
And you got me so cold
When you pull away

And now our hours feel
So numbered and small
Holding love for the keeping
Did I do something to wreck it all

'Cause we are more than our disguises
We are more than just the pain
And I'm standing here just callin' out your name

'Cause you're my twin flame
You're my twin flame
And you got me so cold
When you pull away

'Cause you're my twin flame
You're my twin flame
And you got me so cold
When you pull away

The Worst Is Done

It's been a long strange year
Everyone's sad
They lost what they thought they had
We lost our voices
Can't keep with all the changes
It's a different world
And I am a different
I am a different girl
And I got shot down
And I lit up the sky
Before I hit the ground

But they say the worst is done
And it's time to go out
Pick up where we left off from
They say the worst is done
And it's time to find out
What we've all become

I should've stayed
With my family
I shouldn't have stayed
In my little place
In the world's loneliest city
We're not meant to be
Our own angels all the time
No one comin' by
To see if you're alive

But they say the worst is done
And it's time to go out
And see everyone
They say the worst is done
But I think it's only just begun
I hear it from, everyone
We're all so cracked
After that

Got kinda old
It happened to me quickly
Burned down the house
Waiting for someone to save me
From this hall of mirrors
We slept walked through the years
Didn't think we'd all lean in
To hyper isolation

They say the worst is done
And it's time to go out
Grab on to someone
They say the worst is done
But I think the worst has yet to come

I hear it from, everyone
We're all so cracked
After that

A Given Thing

Runnin' from the turning
I swore I could be good enough
It's a given thing
Sometimes our love is everlasting
It's a given thing

And I want you more, my love
That could be good enough
It's a given thing
Sometimes we confuse the dream
For one another
We're just screaming to be closer
To infinity, to love everlasting

It's not a one way street
Sometimes our love is enrapturing
And other times its just unraveling
In front of me
And it feels like we're burning
Makin' ashes of our joy

But love doesn't need to destroy
You anymore
Oh I wanna stop the war
Between the broken lovers
It's not something you gotta earn
From each other
It just comes naturally
It's there for the taking
It's a given thing
Our love everlasting

Flows out of you
Flows out of me too
And I can't tell where you end
Oh and where I begin
Oh it's a given, thing
Love everlasting



Non Albums Tracks

A Certain Kind

A certain kind of love, I'd say, belongs to me
And each night your kind of love sets me alight
I know it's real, it's what I feel

And loving you the way I do makes everything seem right again
And when you're near I know, I know you just can't tell the time
Oh, time and time again, I know it's real

And so, my love, I see in you the way we love, the things we do
And when you're near I know I just can't change the time
Oh, time and time again, I know it's real, it's what I feel

And loving you the way I do makes everything seem right again
And when you're near I know I just can't change the time
Oh, time and time again, I know it's real, it's what I feel

Cardamom

( Cardamom Times EP )

Cardamom princess
Meets a cardamom boy
Would you be my toy
Just for a minute
And bring all the joy and the pain with it
Cardamom in my coffee in the morning
Pain from longing

We just met, but I have to confess
I knew you, before too

I like your band, can I hold your hand
This time
Do you find what I do kinda cool
Would we last a minute or two
Cardamom boy, cardamom toy
Brings all of the joy

We just met but I have to confess
I knew you, before too

Summer is here
I have nothing to fear
Fresh new train of flesh for me to look down
Now that it's true
Summer without you
Just won't do
I need to be near you

Cardamom times, find what you like
In this world I am not, what I seem to be
I dare you
To get to know me

Daddy, Please Give A Little Time To Me

(Myths 002 EP with Ariel Pink)

Daddy, please give a little time to me
Daddy, give a little time to me
I've been what's on just a top
Couldn't you and I just walk for a little while
Daddy, little things are worrying me
Won't you please explain these things to me
I need you
Daddy, please give a little time to me

Daddy, give a little time to me
Daddy, give a little time to me
I've been what's on just a top
Couldn't you and I just walk for a little while
Daddy, little things are worrying me
Won't you please explain these things to me
Daddy, please give a little time to me
Won't you have time
Would you have time tonight
Daddy

Everybody's Talkin'

(Fred Neil)

Everybody's talkin' at me
I don't hear a word they're sayin'
Only the echoes of my mind
People stop and stare
I don't see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyes

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
Through the pourin' rain
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes
Bankin' off of the northeast wind
Sailin' on a summer breeze
And skippin' over the ocean like a stone

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
Through the pourin' rain
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes
Bankin' off of the northeast wind
Sailin' on a summer breeze
Skippin' over the ocean like a stone

Everybody's talkin' at me
I don't hear a word they're sayin'
Only the echoes of my mind
I won't let you leave our love behind
No, I won't let you leave our love behind

For Free

(Joni Mitchell Cover / Feat. Lana Del Rey & Zella Day)

Zella Day :
I slept last night in a good hotel
I went shoppin' today for jewels
The wind rushed around in the dirty town
And the children let out from their school
I was standin' on a noisy corner
Waitin' for the walkin' green
Across the street, he stood
And he played real good
On his clarinet for free

Lana Del Rey :
Now me, I play for fortunes
And those velvet curtain calls
I've got a black Limousine and two gentlemen
Who escort me through these halls
And I'll play if you've got the money
Or if you're a friend to me
But the one-man band by thе quick lunch stand
He's been playin' real good for free

Weyes Blood :
Nobody stopped to hеar him
Though he played so sweet and high
They knew he had never been on the TV
So they passed his music by
I meant to go over and ask for a song
Maybe put on a harmony
I heard his refrain as the signal changed
He was playin' real good for free

Forever Young

(Alphaville Cover / Live)

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while
Heaven can wait, we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don't have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music's for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
The music's played by the, the mad man

Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever
Forever, and ever
Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever
Forever young

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later, they all will be gone
Why don't they stay young

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
Youth's like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We'll let 'em come true

Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever
Forever, and ever
Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever
Forever, and ever
Forever young
I wanna be forever young
Do you really want to live forever...

Friend of Lindy Morrison

(Kirin J Callinan Feat. Weyes Blood)

Friend of Lindy Morrison Lyrics
I feel like I might have made it
I think we might have made it
Yeah, I'm a friend of Lindy Morrison
In the corner of the picture
At the center of attention

(A wave rises up from my fresh water lake)
Well, all you had to do
Was to look at my direction
(My hands are worn but outside the sky is glacial blue)
The moon was high, but I couldn't look at you

When all this blows over
You won't want to know her
(This is the darkest sheep, you talk in your sleep
And now you're awake, We're in way too deep)
The moon was high, but I couldn't look at you
(Look at you)

(Let's start over)
Baby love
Baby love
And outside the sky is glacial blue
The moon was high, but I couldn't look at you)
I feel like I might have made it
I think we might have made it
Yeah, I'm a friend of Connan Mockasin

Godís Favorite Customer

(Father John Misty Feat. Weyes Blood)

Another night on the straits
All bug-eyed and babbling
Out on the corner of 7th and A
I'm in the business of living
Yeah, that's something I'd say
All I need is a new friend
I'm only five blocks away

Speak to me
Won't you speak, sweet angel
Don't you remember me
I was God's favorite customer

Beware the man who has everything
Everything that he wants
You can spot him from a mile away
In his gold chain and only one pair of socks
I'm out here testing the maxim
That all good things have to stop
The bar closes at five
But the big man is just opening shop

Speak to me (Oh, speak to me)
Won't you speak, sweet angel?
Don't you remember me? (Don't you remember me?)
I was God's favorite customer
But now I'm in trouble
Speak to me (Oh, speak to me)
Won't you speak, sweet angel? (Sweet angel)
I need some company (I need some company)
I swear, just one more night longer

Holocene

(Zella Day Feat. Weyes Blood)

Hot water
Hot summer dreams
Hot temperatures
I see it on strangers
Any day now, my phone will ring
I'll be on an airplane
With my socks in my carry-on

I'm mad at the weather
It's wrong for the time of year
The start of September
So what does your gender reveal?

And I go on
And you go on
Time forgets no one
It never grows tired
Burns like a fire

I miss San Francisco
My friend is in college there
She doesn't come back much
About once a year
And in Colorado
The sun has been beating down
On the morrow was snowfall
Scaring the people in the town
I've read on the freeways
Now that it's in the air
Please, won't you stay at home
For many, that's nowhere

Do you go on
Do they go on
Time forgets no one
She isn't a liar
Time is a fire
Time forgets no one

Time, time forgets no one
Time forgets, time
Time forgets no one
Time forgets, time forgets
Time forgets
Time forgets no one
Time forgets no one
Time forgets no one
Time forgets, time
Time forgets no one

Honey

(Drugdealer Feat. Weyes Blood)

When you're not around, your people have their way with words
And you donít have to hear the sound to feel the burn
Well, I get up and down
And very close to people's lives
You've got some things you can erase
Honey, Iíve got mine

I know that you want to be seen
And to be heard
Oh, to be loved, it's not a crime
Money is the root of the game
What you stand to gain
But everybody's gonna lose their heads

You got the magic smile
Makes people turn their heads
And take their love and make it burn for you instead
Well, I get so inspired
And you know just how much that's worth
Most people know just what they want, but can't make it work

I know that you want to be free
And to be wild
And to be hugged just like a child
Money is the root of the game
The problem with fame
Is everyone going to lose their edge

I Feel Saved

("Age Out" OST)

Growing up
Doing my best just to fill my cup
Waiting my turn, no one to lean on
Taking the pain as it comes
Everyone knows
That I've become numb

And some say
It's better this way
I find I feel saved
When are you coming home, my babe

Have you seen
What just happened between you and me
You got my pride and it burns
Even I can't fight
How I want to know you

And some say
It's better this way
I find I feel saved
When are you coming home, my babe

In The Beginning

( Cardamom Times EP )

I gave my strength
For years like an ox I pushed
And for years like a ship I sank
To the bottom of that unknown sea

I'm still learning to be free and not so somber
Every night I stay up a little longer
Searching on that field of stars
Do you know who you are?
Can you dig up my tree?
Can you find what's inside of me?
Find the origin of my defeat

In the beginning, I was all dreams
Times have changed
I'm no longer the same

I don't want you to leave
It's so bittersweet
That this is the time you met me
I'm going through a long phase
I don't try to relate
I don't really try to find someone to sedate me
Hard out for remedy its so bittersweet
You and me

In the beginning, I was all dreams
Times have changed
I'm no longer the same

Everyday's a lesson in giving away
Stripes on my floor
Dark shots at my door
Have you ever walked in on a queen before?
I just went through the valley
I know it's changed
Fire from eternity
The origin of my dreams

In the beginning, I was all dreams
Time caught up with me
Now I can finally see

Let It Be

(The Beatles Cover / With Tim Heidecker)

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, "Let it be, let it be"
And in my hour of darkness, she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, "Let it be, let it be"

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be, let it be

And when the brokenhearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be, let it be
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be, let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be, let it be

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me
Shine on 'til tomorrow, let it be, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, "Let it be, let it be"

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be, let it be
Oh, let it be

Maybe Love

( Cardamom Times EP )

Maybe love
Your eyes are sweet
And glimmer in the light
I don't doubt in my mind
That you know that deep down inside
We have chemistry
I like seeing you notice me
When I'm feeling better about who I am

Baby love, take my hand
We are friends till the end
Darling my dear, my heart strings bend
You'll be my friend till the end

Darling, how sweet
We can talk of anything
How I love to hide how much I think of you
In the night I can be true to good meaning
Friendship is healing, lust isn't true

Baby love, take my hand
We are friends till the end
Darling my dear, my heart strings bend
You'll be my friend till the end

You got a lot of women under your spell
I can see that
You got a lot of history with pretty ladies
And dreams that won't ring your bell

Maybe love, baby love
I can't have you
But it don't bother me now
We can share friendship, lonesome friendship
I think you know just how special I am

Baby, baby, I'll give you everything
Don't expect nothing, I'll just be waiting
Baby, baby, I'll give you everything
Don't expect nothing, I'll just be waiting
Baby, baby, I'll give you everything
Don't expect nothing, I'll just be waiting
Baby, baby, I'll give you everything
Don't expect nothing, I'll just be waiting
Baby, baby, I'll give you everything
Don't expect nothing, I'll just be waiting
Baby, baby, I'll give you everything
Don't expect nothing, I'll just be waiting
Baby, baby, I'll give you everything
Don't expect nothing, I'll just be waiting

Morning After

(Myths 002 EP with Ariel Pink)

Here it comes, a cure for the night
I've been waiting to let you inside
You will follow the moon to my sea
Ever since you touched me

I can't sleep from the memory
When I saw you, I knew I was cursed
I'm the one who got bit first
And just do it, what you did to me, dear

It's the morning after, long white robes and laughter
Face the bottle and feed from the blood we shared
There, lovers beware
This time, I'll play for a whole life

If I showed you my darkness and fear
I'm the one who got bit, dear
And just do it, what they did to me

Free, free, free, free
From this hunger inside of me
Free
Free from the pain of changing
I'll never be the same

My God

(The Killers Feat. Weyes Blood)

Mirage after mirage
Crawling back to your arms
Stay, stay
From your mouth to my heart
Stay, stay
From your mouth to my heart
Stay, stay

Don't talk to me about forgiveness
My God, just look who's back in business
That weight that dragged you down, it has been made light
And I'm at the top of my lungs
'Cause big love cannot be understated
Don't push, control is overrated
I know that if we stick together
My God, it's like the weight has been lifted

Wipe the dust from my eye
Wash my feet with your tears
My God, my God
From your mouth to my heart
Stay, stay

Don't talk to me about forgiveness
My God, just look who's back in business
That weight that dragged you down, it has been made light
And I'm at the top of my lungs
'Cause big lovе cannot be understated
Don't push, control is ovеrrated
I know that if we stick together
My God, it's like the weight has been lifted

The weight has been lifted
We finally let go
We let go of what holds
Our hearts in the cold
The weight has been lifted

Don't talk to me about forgiveness
My God, just look who's back in business
That weight we lugged around, it has been made light
I'm at the top of my lungs
'Cause big love cannot be understated
Don't push, control is overrated
I know that if we stick together
My God, it's like the weight has been lifted
My God, it's like the weight has been lifted
My God, it's like the weight has been lifted

Names of Stars

( Angels in America / Weyes Blood Split )

Well I looked into names of the stars
Found how close and far they all are
Took the cure and I signed my name
Felt the rush, the infinity wave

They seem so far
You can't count them
They just are
I carried a flame
From a star
Nothing's too far

They seem so far

How could they be
Part of who you are

And I feel like I've entered this Earth
Through the atmosphere
And I'm burning up while I'm here
And I'll burn till the end, my dear

They go so far
And you can't tell where you are
I carry a flame
From a star
Nothing's too far
They seem so far

How could they be
Part of who you are

They seem so far

And I looked into names of the stars
Found how close and far they all are
Felt things older than you and me
Felt the face of the galaxy

They go so far
And you can't tell where you are
I carry a flame
From a star
Nothing's too far

O Holy Night

(Valentine Recording Presents: A Christmas Miracle LP)

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
'Til He appears and the Soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees; O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here come the Wise Men from Orient land
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord; O praise His name forever!
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim

On Another Day

(Myths 002 EP with Ariel Pink)

She traces neat escapes
In night skylines
Bowing out with style
Daylight seeps into her darkness
She'll watch a new moon smile
Then crawl away

On another day
You would swear my judgment was wrong
Tracing neat escapes
Now the soft attraction has gone

She'll swear some weak excuse
To gain more time
Changing sides like friends
To satisfy her quicksand ego
When life falls short again
She'll crawl away

On another day
You would swear my judgment was wrong
Tracing neat escapes
Now the soft attraction has gone

On another day
You would swear my judgment was wrong
Tracing neat escapes
Now the soft attraction has gone

Inside her father's house
She's free to stay
Challenge if you dare
Her mirror test of self-deception
Replacements crowd the stairs
Rehearsed in praise

On another day
You would swear my judgment was wrong
Tracing neat escapes
Now the soft attraction has gone

On another day
You would swear my judgment was wrong
Tracing neat escapes
Now the soft attraction has gone

Thank you
Oh thank you so much

River

(Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy LP)

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
Then I'm gonna blow this crazy scene
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gonе and lost the best baby
That I evеr had
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

Runniní Outta Luck

(Alex Cameron feat. Weyes Blood)

There's a light in your hair
An apocalyptic glare
We're in love again
We're in love again
And it looks just like a comet, fire coming from it
Oh, baby, let's just sit back and stare
We're in love again (In love again)
We're in love again (We're in love again)

And I can't stop thinkin' 'bout it
My favourite kind of fever
When you tell me not to doubt it
I tell you I believe you

I'm a man on a mission
You're a stripper out of luck
And we're good in the backseat
But we're better up front
And there's blood on my knuckles
'Cause there's money in the trunk
Keep running out of luck
Keep running out of luck

Now there's cash on a stage
Doesn't matter what they paid
We're in love again (In love again)
We're in love again (We're in love again)
So please don't stand around me when she starts her dancing
I'm feeling like I might catch a case
We're in love again (In love again)
I said we're in love again (We're in love again)

And I can't stop thinking 'bout it
She's probably gonna leave you
But she tells me not to doubt it
And I'm starting to believe her
Understand

I'm a man on a mission
You're a stripper out of luck
And we're good in the backseat
But we're better up front
And there's blood on my knuckles
'Cause there's money in the trunk
Keep running out of luck
Keep running out of luck

In a neon boneyard
Raised from the dead
We'll bet on forever
But we both know the spread
And the smoke from your fire's
Going straight to my head
So keep running out of luck
Keep running out of luck

Where you been
I been in the smoke

I'm a man on a mission
You're a stripper out of luck
And we're good in the backseat
But we're better up front
And there's blood on my knuckles
'Cause there's money in the trunk
Keep running out of luck
Keep running out of luck

In a neon boneyard
Raised from the dead
We'll bet on forever
But we both know the spread
And the smoke from your fire's
Going straight to my head
So keep running out of luck
Keep running out, out of luck

Keep running, keep running out of luck
Keep running, keep running out of luck
Keep running, keep running out of luck
(Running out of luck)
Keep running, keep running out of luck
Keep running, keep running out of luck
Keep running, keep running out of luck
Keep running

Shattered Mirror

Time is just a mirror
Lost within its maze
Counting the days and eyes
Losing my sight to mind

We think we're naked
We think we're older
Come know my name
Come take me over

What's you and what's me
(Shattered mirror opened up my eyes)
Two people too hot to know the cold
(And left me there)
What's you and what's me?
(Echoing where it all began)
Two people far too old
(And where it ends)

My son, who was too late
Although there was no time
My child who is too much
There will never be enough

We think we're naked
We think we can
Longing for nowhere
(Shattered mirror opened up my eyes)
Come take my hand
(And left me there)
(Echoing where it all began)
(And where it ends)

Time is like a mirror
Lost within its maze
Breaking apart so slow
Breath will move too fast

We think we're naked
We think we're older
Come know my name
Come take me over

(Shattered mirror opened up my eyes)
(And left me there)
(Echoing where it all began)
(And where it ends)
(Scattered pieces are breaking all the time)

Side

(Perfume Genius feat. Weyes Blood)

Look
Sometimes you forget
To just let me in a bit
Baby, just
Where do you go sometimes
Idle and empty-eyed
Why still no love
Fight
This loop is wearing thin
And I won't be here when it ends
Baby, trust

Lately, baby
I've been hiding away
Don't wanna start our game
That we play
Baby, if it ain't easy to love me
Baby, cut the cord and set me free
How many times I leave
When I used to stay
I'm a fool
For the games we play
Wish I had the
Strength to leave
Running free
A million tired things
That you used to say
Don't want to watch
The world we made break
And it's never too late to stay
Hold me right
Don't cut me down

Baby, it ain't easy to love

Story Of Blood

(John Cale Feat. Weyes Blood)

This is the story, the story of blood
It starts in the heart
It moves all around, wakes you in the morning
And brings you down

You see it coming, the thickness and the color
Sliding across the floor ???
It moves all around, wakes you in the morning
And brings you down (And brings you down)

Swing your soul (Swing your soul)
Swing your soul (Swing your soul)
Swing your soul (Swing your soul)
Swing your soul (Swing your soul)

Light
Into the light

It's the color of midnight where we lie
Sinking in the sand
Watching the rain come pouring down
On the other side of life

Swing your soul (Swing your soul)
Swing your soul (Swing your soul)
Swing your soul (Swing your soul)
Swing your soul (Swing your soul)

It moves all around
It moves all around, brings you down
It moves all around, wakes you in the morning
This is the story, the story of blood

I'm standing here waiting
Waiting in the morning
Sleepy and hoping for the tide to turn
Sleepy and hoping for the tide to turn
I'm going back to get thеm, my friends in the morning
Bring them with mе into the light (Into the light)
Bring them with me into the light
Bring them with me into the light
Bring them with me into the light (Bring me into the light)

Swing your soul, swing your soul
Swing your soul, swing your soul
Swing your soul, swing your soul
Watching the rain come pouring down
Swing your soul
The thickness and the color
Sliding across the floor
Swing your soul

Suddenly

(Drugdealer Feat. Weyes Blood)

Suddenly
My mind is open
And I know
You won't be sitting with me

Tempted by the morning sun
And now I feel
Like I'm home again

I'm home again
I'm home again

Suddenly my
Eyes are open
And I see
You won't be there

Tempted by the midnight hour
And now I feel
I'm alone again

I'm home again
I'm home

Take You There

( Cardamom Times EP )

No one brings me closer
To the sun
Never felt like this with anyone
You let me be who I wish I could be
Shine your crazy light through me
Make me high
Make me want to cry
I just can't hide

You take me there
I'm so scared
You take me there

Love is fate an ocean only
How much your nature moves in me
Your mind
Feels so close to mine
Losing touch with time

You take me there
I'm so scared
You make me shine
I just can't hide, I want you to try
To take me there
Do I take you there
Do I take you there
Do I take you there

Are you playing
Are you playing games with me
Catch you see
You take me

You take me there
I'm so scared
You take me there

Do I take you there
I'm not scared
Do I take you there
I'm not scared
Do I take you there

Gonna make you shine
I'll make you shine
All the time

You take me there
You take me there
I'm not scared

Tears On Fire

(Myths 002 EP with Ariel Pink)

The joke was from the heart
I'm just high, not a liar
It's really all my fault
I choked up on desire

Singing
All of my tears on fire

Where's the piece's wrought?
Roasting pigs on the pyre
How did I get so lost?
Wash my hands in the dryer

Singing
All of my tears on fire
All of my tears on fire

The words came out so wrong
Hold my hand, it's a nightmare
Into this painful dark
And look down to the wire

Singing
All of my tears on fire

The joke was from the heart
I'm just high, not a liar
It's really all my fault
I choked up on desire

Singing
All of my tears on fire
All of my tears on fire

I should burn down the fire's lair
You'll know why
Tears on fire
If you're waiting for something true
Cry and cry
Tears on fire

You crossed but can't go
You've kissed the hot spot
You crossed but can't go
You kissed the hot

The End of Comedy

(Drugdealer Feat. Weyes Blood)

I've got a new kind of lullaby
The fiction takes a picture of what's on my mind
When I need something to tell me I'm fine

You got your money
But your talk is cheap
Nothing funny when you're here with me
A dramedy

I'm in love with laughter
Sing with all my true

You can take a stab at a faith (?)
But it always comes down to you
Always goes down to you

You keep it moving inside your mind
I always love you, but it's hard to define

I just need someone
To help me unwind
You got me honey
Please talk to me

There's nothing funny
Just a magazine

I'm in love with laughter
Sing with all my true
You can take a stab at a faith (?)
But it always comes down to you

Always comes down
Always goes down to you

Titanic Risen

Baby
Don't you know that I love you
Don't you know that I want to
You know I want to become you
Find a reason to believe truth
Some way to know why
You do it to me
You make me
Feel like I'm going crazy
Make me feel my love is lazy
Not enough to make you take me
Not enough to know why it's you

Victims
We all become the victims
Of a love-like symptom
What it really is a question
What you really are impressions
Just a wonderful illusion
How long can confusion
Really last for

Really last, really last, really last
Really last, really last, really last
Really last, really last, really last
Really last, really last, really last
Really last
Really last

When You're Smiling

("A Small Light: Episode 5")

When you're smiling, when you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you
When you're laughing, when you're laughing
The sun comes shining through

But when you're crying, you bring on the rain
So stop your sighing, be happy again, keep on smiling
'Cause when you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you

When you're crying, you bring on the rain
So stop your sighing, be happy again, keep on smiling
'Cause when you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you

You're No Good

(Dee Dee Warwick Cover / "Minions: The Rise Of Gru" OST)

Feelin' better now that we're through
Feelin' better 'cause I'm over you
I learned my lesson, it left a scar
Now I see how you really are

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good
I'm gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good

I broke a heart that's gentle and true
Well, I broke a heart over someone like you
I'll beg his forgiveness on bended knee
I wouldn't blame him if he said to me

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good
I'm gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good

I'm tellin' you now, baby
And I'm going my way
Forget about you, baby
'Cause I'm leavin' to stay

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good
I'm gonna say it again
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good

Oh, oh, no
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Baby, you're no good
