holding on but just barely hanging in there holding on to your fingers as they press into my spine and all all of this will be just fine all of you will be alright tonight and all of this is but a test to try your strength to do your best when will the candle burn at both ends? and when will this life begin to make sense?

sounds 04:41
picture the light of the moon on the lake and be amazed by the ways we anticipate things picture the light of the sun in the clouds and wonder is this the way things have always been? and you're like a friend to me the witness in my dreams listen for sounds in your brain that don't feel like your voice calling out to you trying to explain all these choices that lie like a map at your feet listen for waves listen for sounds listen for music that can lead the way with it's frequency this frequency of life this frequency it helps you get things right picture the sound of my voice like a color or shape visualize the waves that float in your brain picture the way things make you feel and then recreate the things you want to feel again and again and again and again and again

pulse 02:00
all the people dancing racing from the fighting all of this is fading pain shown 'cross their faces hold me closely dear as i am bleeding out all the politicians gaze from their bright shining castles holding all their worries behind airtight doorframes the safe well the safe well the safe well demonstrate your passion burn it all with matches don't let the fear take control of you now it is breathing the monster inside is shaking don't let it control you don't let it out

i'm not hearing you you're not hearing me what are we to do in all this noise? you're not making sense i'm thinking of self-defense is this fighting worth fighting for? and i can't picture all this going anywhere but where it's going and i can't picture all these minds just changing on their own i'm a part of this you're a part here too what are we to do but just admit it? i am losing steam preferring a dream where i can float away and just forget it 'cause i can't picture all this going anywhere but where it's going and i can't picture all these minds just changing on their own and i am growing tired of all the ways we want to tell our stories and we can't hear the stories that are being told oh i can't picture all this going anywhere but where it's going and i can't picture all these minds just changing on their own and i am growing tired of all the ways we want to write our own words and we can't hear the stories that are being told.

up around the back of your hand is a mysterious place the road it takes you round the bend swallowed by rivers and lakes on route twentytwo the road we barely knew magical moon as the sun rises i'll rise with you you took my hand you knew better you knew you knew you knew better all of this loud light polluting every thing in sight the stories you told of our fathers' fathers' fathers' fathers' soul you took my hand around michigan you knew you knew you knew better you took my hand around michigan you knew you knew i remembered
6.
are you there god? are you listening to me right now? i know that it isn't likely that you care to pay attention to me but i wanna know are you holding brothers close to your heart? i hope you're paying them close attention i hope you do and why do the young ones have to go? i know that you don't wanna let me know but i don't care that i don't know are you with me now? i hope that i could believe that this door could be closed i know that you wouldn't blame me for that ghost with the most controversial manners i don't need a friend i need a savior 'cause i'm breakin my back to keep all this on it's way and i honestly don't wanna be afraid at the end of the road and i honestly don't wanna know

dream 03:29
it's getting late it's getting dark i'm getting lost in this dream are you not sure? sure as you want to be? sure as you'd hoped you'd be by now? and isn't it hard? and isn't it sad? and isn't it everything we knew it'd be? but it's getting late and i'm getting tired i have been lost in this dream

“cloudlight’s debut album is a tender display of eerie folk songs, seemingly carved out of the Michigan wilderness and presented, delicately, to those lucky enough to stumble upon the captivating, often beautiful glow that resonates from within.” –Tom Johnson, GoldFlakePaint (www.goldflakepaint.co.uk/album-stream-cloudlight-michigan-band/)
