about

Echo Deer's second EP "Side B" moves from brooding folk ballads to lilting love songs, to hillbilly foot tappers, all laced with the sweet harmonies the group has forged from years of live shows.

Track Name: Lost My Way
Well I lost my way, I lost my way
Rolled on down that old lost highway
Lost my head and I lost my pay
And when I found you I was hoping that
This run of luck I'd broken it at last

Well I've been looking, I've been searching
Long, low and high
I've been thinking, I've been wondering
Just what, when and why
Well it's coming down on my head tonight

We've been talking, we've been rolling
That smoke it fills the air
I raise a glass to ya, I raise a toast
To that whisky, oh with that beer
Well I'm up to my neck, I'm up to my ears

Well I lost my way, I lost my way
Rolled on down that old lost highway
Lost my head and I lost my pay
And when I found you I was hoping that
This run of luck I'd broken it at last

We seen that train coming, we heard that whistle
It's blowing me away
I got that feeling, that old sinking feeling
And all that I could say
Well it's coming down onto me today

I still remember, oh just before sunrise
I closed my eyes and I prayed
When I was woken, plans that were spoken
The songs we're gonna play
Well it's all coming down on me today

Well I lost my way, I lost my way
Rolled on down that old lost highway
Lost my head and I lost my pay
And when I found you I was hoping that
This run of luck I'd broken it at last
Track Name: Riverbed
You spend your days out on the river, your nights up on the shelf
The beer is for your breakfast, I guess the whiskey's for your health
It's been this way for so long that I'm beginning to fear the worst
That there's water everywhere, but you'll never quench your thirst

That bar is like the back of your hand, it's knotted and twisted grain
Your name is carved into its chair and your life's pissed down its drain
Eyes that once beheld the sight now peer at you sideways
As if they've never watched a man so slowly waste away

Take me to the river that rolls
And wash my soul
Take me to the river that rolls
And let me go
So everybody knows

Your name was spoken every day as if a sacred word
I never listened to my mamma say don't believe everything you've heard
I'm only left fish bones to boil and cigarette smoke lingering
I try to keep that home fire burning but I need more wood for kindling

Take me to the river that rolls
And wash my soul
Take me to the river that rolls
And let me go
So everybody knows

Fingers round the bottle neck, they saw you floating past
I always thought a drowning man would cling to a blade of glass
Sleeping in your riverbed, where I laid you down so slow
The current carried you away, you were washed from head to toe

Take me to the river that rolls
And wash my soul
Take me to the river that rolls
And let me go
So everybody knows
Track Name: Easy Street
I live my life on easy street
Saving up the money for a one-way ticket
Up the road but I'm back again
Follow you home like a bad luck penny
Well I don't know, well I've been told
Find that pretty woman and she just might save your soul

That's all I got, that's all I'll give
That's all the reasons that I ever needed
Saving up the money for a rainy day
Don't pray for rain or you know what just might happen
Well I don't know, well I've been told
Find that pretty woman and she just might save your soul

It's easy when you find your feet
I'm rolling up down easy street
I'm on my way back home
But it's wasted when you're all alone

Well I don't know, well I've been told
Find that pretty woman and she just might save your soul

It's easy when you find your feet
I'm rolling up down easy street
I'm on my way back home
But it's wasted when you're all alone
Girl it's wasted when you're all alone

I live my life on easy street
Saving up the money for a one-way ticket
Up the road but I'm back again
Follow you home like a bad luck penny
Track Name: Sure Thing
Little bit of that sure thing
Sitting on the roadside doing nothing
I ask for a light and I ask your name
Never let 'em tell you now honey that we’re all the same

Oh I wasn’t feeling too brave
So I walked away again

Someone told me there’s something out there
If you’re never looking or if you don’t care
I never found that to be right or wrong
Cos I’m always walking home, getting drunk
It’s a sad old song

No I wasn’t feeling too brave
So I walked away again

Someone told me there’s something out there
If you’re never looking or if you don’t care
I never found that to be right or wrong
Cos I’m always walking home, getting drunk
And it’s a sad old song
It’s a sad old song
Track Name: Kaja's Song
Come on in now honey pie
Oh run in from that storm
I know you love the rain my dear
But it’s time to come on home

There will be more time to play
And that day will come along
But I’m waiting for the clouds to clear
And I don’t want to wait alone

I’m watching as the shadows pass across your pretty face
We left behind the sun to sink on down to its resting place
You don’t know, the way you move girl, and what it does to me
But it’s safe to say that you’ll get your way and I’ll give you everything

We could be a lullaby or we could be a song
We’re laughing at the world and how it’s trying to sing along
Cos you have got so much to give and I don’t want to take a lot
Oh those lazy days are filled with rain and she loves me, loves me not

And I’m watching as the shadows pass across your pretty face
We left behind the sun to sink on down to its resting place
You don’t know, the way you move girl, and what it does to me
But it’s safe to say that you’ll get your way and I’ll give you everything

Come on in now honey pie
Oh run in from that storm
I know you love the rain my dear
But it’s time to come on home

There will be more time to play
And that day will come along
And I’m waiting for the clouds to clear
And I don’t want to wait alone
No no no, I don’t want to wait alone
Track Name: That's Alright
Come on little lady won’t you look into my eyes
You’ll know what the devil knows
Gonna steal my soul tonight
I been chasing my tail and I’m running down the road
Well I’ll throw away my hand, I’m gonna ask you home
And you said that’s alright by me
That’s alright by me
Come on

Lay down your head, won’t you listen to the end
Of the song when you rise, it’s the bright and early morning light
Leave all them, my hangers on just waiting in the wings
Cos tomorrow never knows and no-one ever told you that’s alright
That’s alright

Oh my lady, don’t leave me waiting
In the darkness, well I won’t ever know
What the night brings, don’t ever tell me
What your thinking, cos I don’t wanna know
That’s alright by me
That’s alright by me

Cos I don’t wanna be alone tonight
And all I’ve got to offer up are these old lullabies
No I don’t wanna be alone tonight
And all I’ve got to offer up are these old bloodshot eyes

So be my little ladybug
Oh buzzing round, I’ll pick you up
Be my little dragonfly
Flying through my hands tonight
Be my little honeybee
Honey won’t you stay with me
This must be a dream I’m in
Said, the best damn dream that I ever seen

So come on little lady won’t you look into my eyes
You know what the devil knows
Gonna steal my soul tonight
I been chasing my tail and I’m running down the road
I’ll throw away my hand, I’m gonna ask you home
And you said that’s alright by me
That’s alright by me
Track Name: Cold
I walk you to your door
Through the driving rain
Cold, cold your stare
When you were lying next to me

Now I won’t be spared
Cos I walked away
Cold, cold light
Saving me
You watched me throw

Another witch on the fire
Beckoning at my door
No-one, no nothing
Is gonna save me anymore

Now I won’t be spared
So I see you down there
Cos no-one, no nothing
Is gonna save me anymore

Now I lie awake
And I lie alone
Cold, cold heart
As cold as stone

Another witch on the fire
She’s walking right through my walls
No-one, no nothing
Is gonna save me anymore

Cos I walk you to your door
Through the driving rain
And cold, colder stare
When you were lying next to me
