Thanks everyone for tuning in!

On this page you’ll find all the lyrics of the songs featured in the ‘New Indie Folk; October 2018’ compilation.

01. sød ven – hollow

Hollow
Carve the words from your tongue
Fall on your misfortune
Don’t speak

Shadow
In the shape of what I once was
A whisper I could once trust
Pulled from me

Who,
Is to blame a promise?
Spoke when it was honest
Then broken the same

Oh,
All I ever wanted
Was to crawl into your arctic
And hold you unscathed

Hollow
Hold the air in your lungs
Innocence is undone
Slowly

Who,
Is to blame a promise?
Spoke when it was honest
Then broken the same

Swallow
The secrets you’ve been guarding
Time will leave you starving
And Hollow

02. Tim the Lion Tamer – Whistleblower

I came down here to sell the drugs you left beneath your bed
I came down here to bend my crooked soul
And I wish you’d have the decency to tell me what they said
‘Cause trouble walks beside me, as you know

Oh and if I was a fighter, then a fighter I would be
But the more I fight, the more I’m fought
Oh and if I was a sailor, I would sail across the sea
But the more I dream, the more I know I’m not

The cats upon the rooftops weep, the winter stole the sun
The hour’s come of which the poets feed
And I guess that I must stab the eye of someone who’s in charge
I say; the more I stab, the less I bleed

Oh and if I was a painter, I would paint the snow all green
I’d stroke the sky to cover up the grey
Oh and if I was a waiter, I’d be waiting for the spring
‘Cause trouble walks beside me everyday

Well, I guess that I could love you even when my heart is faint
But I did not come to kiss your broken bones
You’ll hear the sound of thunder traveling through the wind
The whistleblower’s come to claim his home

Oh and if I was a drinker, I would drink away the blue
But the more I drink, the thirstier I get
Oh and if I was a runner, I would run my way to you
But this trouble’s not gonna let me forget

03. Holly Abraham – Shore

I can’t breathe anymore
Can feel my body sinking to the ocean floor
I seem to have forgotten how to swim
The waves have quenched the fire that’s within

The tide has drowned me out
Still a distant voice is quieting the doubt
There’s still a chance that I may reach the land
I need to feel my feet upon your sand

Because you, you sought my heart, now I am yours
And though I cannot always feel you,
I know you’re there, pulling me back, towards the shore
When I am near you, I know my ship there is secure,
Just set my anchor down in truth
And I will rise above the waves

This is not a part of me
Just lies that I have chosen to believe
Well I’m not standing for it anymore
I’m fighting for the peace I had before

Take my hand and don’t let go
I cannot do this on my own
Keep my head up, pull me through
I cannot do this without you
I know that I have let you down
But still you wouldn’t let me drown

04. Brolly – Hey Mama

Hey mama who’s the guilty man?
I knelt down to my brothers
Down to my brothers hand

Hey mama who’s the guilty man?
Right now your tired with your weepin’
But one day you’ll understand
And you’ll stand

Hey mama who’s the guilty man?
You’ve been as strong as a lion
Mild mannered as a lamb
Though now you’re down without hope
Love will lift you up again
To stand

Love is only letting go of fear
And love is calling us to crawl from here

Hey mama go free those guilty man
When they fall down with their weepin’
Go help em’ up to stand
When they fall down without hope
Love, and lift em’ up again

Hey mama
Hey mama

05. Unknown Neighbour – Island

When I feel lonely
Next to a thousand souls
The crowd seems to own me
All playing their roles

I wish I could feel you
You’re healin’ me when I’m torn
And I’m longing for calm to hide
From the storm

Then I think of you

You’re like an island
A moment of silence
In a hidden bay
I am out on the ocean
And when I need guidance
You show me the way

We’re breathing the air
That we were made for
All the worries behind us
Somewhere in the past

We’re watching the sunset
A breeze strokes your hair
We slow down the world
To make this last

Then I think of you

You’re like an island
A moment of silence
In a hidden bay
I am out on the ocean
And when I need guidance
You show me the way

You, you’re like an island
A moment of silence
In a hidden bay

06. Canyon City – Lost Sparks

Let’s burn let’s turn rubble from a love to light
Keep warm in the storm
Breathe awake a little fire
Only, for the lonely nights

Rip a line from the page
Watch it fade up in smoke
Hope rise through the rain higher than we’d ever go
Blown away, it’s gone cold you say

It’s someone else’s spark
In someone else’s heart
As someone else falls in love with you

And all that’s left of the fire we had, and the higher we get
Is sparks

Come on rest, take a breath
feel your chest fall and rise
Lie by my side watch the morning fight over you
Against the glow we knew

It’s someone else’s spark
In someone else’s heart
As someone else falls in love with you

And all that’s left of the fire we had, and the higher we get
Is sparks
And all we kept, from the embers deep red
Are the memories we let fly
Like sparks

(Bridge) Leave me, the pieces, I’ll tape this
Back together
Don’t try, to say goodbye, I’ll be fine
Go-on now find another

And all that’s left of the fire we had, and the higher we get
Is sparks
And all we kept, from the embers deep red
Are the memories we let fly
Like sparks
oh oh
Just sparks oh oh
These sparks no oh
Lost sparks oh oh

07. Tom Speight – Collide

Two hearts and three lost words
Fall through the universe
And we collide when you ask me
Have you felt a certain rush between the two of us
And we collide for the first time

I belong with you
Baby I belong
I belong with you

You are with me from the end to the start
When gravity pulls on us
You are with me from the end to the start
When gravity pulls on us

Two hearts and three lost words
Timeless when lovers hurt
And we collide when you ask me
Calling on past and present
Like its ?
And we align for the first time

I belong with you
Baby I belong
I belong with you

You are with me from the end to the start
When gravity pulls on us
You are with me from the end to the start
When gravity pulls on us
When gravity pulls on us
When gravity pulls on us

You are with me from the end to the start
When gravity pulls on us

08. Beta Radio – Realistic City Living

I arrived on earth
In no form of my choosing
Born a spirit to a womb
In a room that’d soon consume me
What can I sing about
To find a lasting meaning
And not be obsessed to detriment
In looking for a reason now

Everything will bow
Under change
The void was closing before we ever came

You’re a spirit in
The ancient transition
Searching for New Jerusalem
Lost in human condition
It’s pulling at your sleeves
It’s what everyone was saying
Ephemera and vestiges
Are the only songs left playing now

Everything will bow
Under change
The void is closing we’re not long in this place

It’ll change
The void will close come and show me all your ways

09. James Ollier – Glory Days

These are the glory days
So why are you scared we are young
We are the risks we take
I breathe strong

Starlings free-form
Over these moors
Where my heart lies
Cemented in all of time
And all past loves

Over on the hills
In five years still
All remains here
Untouched by the turns of life
And I get lost in my mine

I’ll be still as the wind spills its body
I’m breaking out of the line
I’ll be calm as the winter storms surround me
I’m heading out this time

Look into the stars
I’ve been thinking more
About this whole thing
Through the gaps of a moving train
For who we are

Little do I know
Come come and go
And love
We build up

I’ll be still as the wind spills its body
I’m breaking out of the line
I’ll be calm as the winter storms surround me
I’m heading out this time

Who plays the fool
When we’ve failed out last hurdle
Who claims the crown
When we’ve poisoned the rest of our lands

These are the glory days
So why you scared
We are the risks we take
I’ve breathe strong

I’ll be still as the wind spills its body
I’m breaking out of the line

10. Sun Brother – Slow Motion

A full moon ago
I had a dream I was completely lost
And it felt so real to me
I took a moment to collect my thoughts

It moved in slow motion
Recycling every memory that ever made me feel alive

There’s just nowhere to hide
When even dreams can unravel your life
And now I’m morning melancholy
While shaking rust from my tired eyes

It moved in slow motion
Recycling every memory that ever made me feel alive

As vast as the ocean
Distorting my reality and swinging me side to side

A suffocated flame
That flickers on the brink of death
It’s like it all feels the same
Emotionless and out of breath

It moved in slow motion
Recycling every memory that ever made me feel alive

As vast as the ocean
Distorting my reality and swinging me side to side

11. The Last Dinosaur – Me & Magdalena

Me and Magdalena
We’re driving south through Monterey
As the sun is slowly sinking
Into a distant ocean wave

And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as much as I do in this light she’s under

Tell me Magdalena
What do you see in the depths of your night
Do you see a long lost father
Does he hold you with the hands you remember as a child?

But know everything lost will be recovered
When you drift into the arms of the undiscovered
And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as much as I do in this light she’s under

Me and Magdalena
Always leaving early and sleeping late
Secluded in the canyon
Lost within a turn of fate

But know everything lost will be recovered
When you drift into the arms of the undiscovered
And I don’t know if I’ve ever loved any other
Half as much as I do in this light she’s under

12. Chase McBride – Good Love

Hidden there, under your gaze
Are all the options, that you could weigh
There’s a cool rain, here today
With all the pretty words, that you could say

Good love is coming
Good love is on the way

There’s an ocean, in my brain
Where all the liberties, they fade away
A little postcard, with your last name
I’ll be better now, now that you’re safe

Good love is coming
Good love is on the way

13. Terrible Sons – Tears Don’t Fall

Alarm don’t ring in the morning
So you’re left out on the road
Roommate drank all the coffee

Now I’m damned if I don’t wake up

Plains stretch out for the eastern bays
And the wind tears down the road
You, longing for a holiday
But I turn us back to work

So the mountains are blue, blue

But my words they don’t fool you, you, you
Oh there’s sweat on your brow, brow
But your tears they don’t fall down, down, down

When you call me up on a payphone
You know I faked a sleepyhead
Fool me more than I fool you
Stack years of regret

So the mountains are blue, blue
But my words they don’t fool you, you, you
Oh there’s sweat on your brow, brow
But your tears they don’t fall down, down, down

So the mountains are blue, blue,
But my words they don’t fool you, you, you
Oh there’s sweat on your brow, brow
But your tears they don’t fall down, down, down

14. Andrea von Kampen – Portland

This place looks nothing like where I come from
The trees they turn later, the sky comes undone
We drove all night through Couer d’Alene, and I woke with the sun
Onwards to Portland, Oregon (hmmm)

I just want to leave to say that I did
Nothing against all the green fields of my childhood
But I’m drivin’ through all the same places that I used to
I’m gone to Portland, Oregon (hmmm)

(chorus)
If am lost, I am lost on purpose
Please God don’t find me
If I am running, I am running away all on my own
I get lost, I get lost, I get lost

Nobody cares if the foundation’s cracked
As long as it looks good when somebody asks
Yet I’ve got a man who loves me despite what I lack
We’re goin’ to Portland, Oregon if anyone asks

(chorus)

15. William Fitzsimmons – Lovely

She walks on the water from where I stand
And she holds my heart in the palm of her hand
Though I’m uncertain she understands
That she is lovely

And there is a light in the back of my mind
A film of her sitting by God on the other side
And I watch again and again just to find
How she is lovely

Won’t you come back and haunt me again
Rise from the Baltimore snow and begin
Covering us who are wandering
Out at the edge of the end

She tried to hold back the rivers of hell
And rose to the angels while her body fell
I’ll dance with her when I go there as well
For she is lovely

Won’t you come back and haunt me again
Rise from the Baltimore snow and begin
Covering us who are wandering
Out at the edge of the end

16. Joshua Hyslop – No Roots

I like digging holes and hiding things inside them
When I’ll grow old, I hope I won’t forget to find them
‘Cause I’ve got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
I build a home and wait for someone to tear it down
Then pack it up in boxes, head for the next town running
‘Cause I’ve got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
And a thousand times I’ve seen this road
A thousand times

I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh

I like standing still, but that’s just a wishful plan
Ask me where I come from, I’ll say a different land
But I’ve got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
I count gates and numbers, then play the guessing game
It’s just the place that changes, the rest is still the same
But I’ve got memories and travel like gypsies in the night
And a thousand times I’ve seen this road
A thousand times

I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh

I like digging holes
Hiding things inside them
When I’ll grow old
I won’t forget to find them
I like digging holes
Hiding things inside them
When I’ll grow old
I won’t forget to find them
I’ve got no roots
No roots

I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots, but my home was never on the ground
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh
I’ve got no roots uh uh uh uh

17. Terrible Sons – When I Don’t Speak

It’s so damn hard,
It’s so damn hard,
It’s so damn hard,
For me to say

Pass me the cup
Pour, I’ll say
Wait by my door
For tomorrow

When I don’t speak,
I rarely know
Stuck up and broke
Oh, you should go
When I don’t speak
I rarely know
Stuck up and broke
Oh you should go

My mother tongue
Was taught to wait
A growing man
Can learn to walk

When I not speak
I rarely know
Stuck up and broke
Oh, you should go
When I don’t speak
I rarely know
Stuck up and broke
Oh, you should go

It’s so damn hard,
It’s so damn hard,
It’s so damn hard,
For me to say

When I don’t speak
I rarely know
Stuck up and broke
Oh, you should go
When I don’t speak
I rarely know
Stuck up and broke
Oh, you should go
