Lyrics for Minneapolis-based folktronic band landlikesea:

Night Arrives

We go for a ride
the windows way down
starting with our skin
where our bodies begin
try not to forget this

First in the air
then in our blood
then in our dreams
night arrives like the sea

Less like smoke and
more like foam
the windows way down
the air on our shoulders so warm
you’ll be my souvenier 
try not to forget this

 

Bottles of Crystal

Chapter one: hotsprings in winter

The fear will keep you looking for
The mystery to its full course
And I see the first dimming stage

Another reason I won’t stay
I won’t stay
Another reason I won’t stay

In what place does the heart start
To pray
to its own god
On which day does the dream find

Colors to fill tomorrow’s page
Colors to fill tomorrow’s page

Colors to fill tomorrow’s page
Colors to fill tomorrow’s page

As if it’s for us to choose anyway
We only have so much say
Which line to draw which to follow

Which bottles to send out on the water
Which bottles to send out on the water

It’s the truth, I’m afraid of both
The rush and the calm
The strangers with their storm

Will soon be ghosts, and I
I guess then I will be alone

Will soon be ghosts, and I
I guess then I will be alone

Will soon be ghosts, and I
I guess then I will be alone

Will soon be ghosts, and I
I guess then I will be alone

Dozzle

Dead flowers on the bed
It’s not a game, but that can’t be enough
Time to set them on the grave–

Through our mirror I saw a field
Still and waiting, just like prayer
Toss up dead petals, yeah it’s me

Told me the truth, it’s a matter of the heart
Told me the truth, it’s a matter of the heart
Heartttttttt

(His) tin cup on the roof
When it rains, it fills, listen
It’s beautiful
We don’t have to say it loud

Before I go, just one thing
Teach me how to walk away
Heartttttttt

Told me the truth, it’s a matter of the heart

 

Wait For Me (Alright)

Wait for me alright
What world of the rush
seduces our blood

Wait for me, alright?
Your scent is my home
Wait for me alright?
Yeah your scent is my home

One word: it doesn’t have to be love
Build the tracks through fields of lilacs

Wait for me alright

We’ll ride the trains, we’ll make them all count
Lilacs turn the spring to summer
Every year    over and over

Waiting is alright
Timelessness
we’ve got it covered

Wait for me pleaseeeeee (summer’s coming)

Wait for me alright?

Build tracks through fields of lilacs
We’ll meet where they come together
