lyrics

Maybe it is stillness that I dread
Memory is fluid; on the surface it will spread—
Until your voice completely fills my head.
Shadowy outside, but through my eyelids glowing red.

Were you ever really there?

Panic twists a knot in every thread.
I'm begging you to follow, but I'm dying to be led.
Somehow every word remains unsaid—
And then you disappear and I am standing there instead.

Were you ever really there?

My eyes are closed, but I know where I am:
I'm at the top of my favorite hill, at the seaside cliff of dreams.
At any moment now I will hear the cries of gulls circling.
That is when I will lift my eyelids and see what I already know is there.
Someone will be waiting for me here—someone always is.
I'm in no particular hurry to find out who is here today.
I'm content to listen. I hear nothing.
Not even the sound of waves breaking on the shore far below.

Were you ever really there?

One day, Allan Coberly's morning was ruined when he was rudely awakened by jackhammers and bulldozers. Cary Grace talked him into recording the noises from his window, and the rest is history.
