lyrics

Stone

I’ve been in love,
And I’ve been lost.
Now would a bedside prayed cover the cost of us?
So come off your knees.
Is God just another word for company,
That I don’t need?

I have work,
And I have want to fill the room.
But when the stage lights dim they all walk away from me.
So come off your knees.
This hotel room is cold please some company,
Your company was all I needed.

If a ghost knows,
There is no door,
Then the turn of a stone,
Is the god I’m indebted to.

I heard that you stopped,
I heard that you stopped praying for us,
Like your fellows and my family.

I wont let you stop,
No I wont let you stop calling for me,
From the hollows of your body.

If a ghost knows,
There is no door,
Then the turn of a stone,
Is the god I’m indebted to.

about

River Whyless Asheville, North Carolina

“River Whyless is at its best on its rhythmic indie-rock numbers which they make their own with layers of fiddle, [and] tasteful percussion… Handclaps, shakers and a simple bassline on a vocal break in “Pigeon Feathers” is a high point. O’Keefe’s reedy, at times aching lead vocal is pleasantly raw and poignant, and well-matched by the sweetness of Anderson’s lyric contributions.” –Mountain Express ... more
