lyrics

I kept my belly low to the ground
I shoved aside whatever I found
I longed for emptiness
Gasps of air like cold rocks in my chest

I licked my wounds under a tree
I got my heat from sun through leaves
Stains in my eyes
That brilliant disguise
Of stars that shouldn't be seen

I hid behind bushes and found
A peek on life just to find out
True beauty could not be seen
Just a branch in between

It is time...

There the fields are wide and clear
Slowness turns into fear
Soil goes moist
A sad voice
Until I pour silence from this noise

I think of lonesome roads around
I think of pearls in tall grass
And brightness to be found
And happiness
Too old to feel

It is time
For better times

about

a Singer of Songs Barcelona

a Singer of Songs' music has been compared to snowflakes falling in slow motion. To a blanket on a cold night and dogs howling into the night. Somebody called their album the soundtrack to a loser's life. The band thinks that's the biggest compliment they ever got.
But yeah, you probably want some useful information. Well, they live in Barcelona and they sing songs. That's about it.
