Dream 02:19
Always always on my mind, It’s always seeping through me waiting waiting for my time, I’m waiting for a sign Whisper whisper in my room, I’m walking under water Nothing nothing in the dark, there’s nothing for us there Don’t look back, don’t look back Let it go, let it go Don’t look back don’t look back Let it go, let it go Slowly slowly touch your hair, she slowly looks up at me Laughing laughing in my car, her laugh is crystal clear Dreaming dreaming on my own, I’m dreaming of our future Wishing wishing all alone, I’m wishing for my home Dont look back, don’t look back Let it go, let it go Dont look back don’t look back Let it go, let it go
Drown 02:48
I don’t know what I want Drown baby drown, pour it pour it down Here all alone and solitude suits me Dreaming away the night while you’re out and Living your life I guess it’s for the best When mercury’s in retrograde ill be
Float 02:56
A perfect storm here, it’s fading far away Soon autumn leaves fall all around, all around One magic moment but you’re so far away You can’t remember living in my ghost town And I fall, fall into his open arms But I’m on my own, I’ll be my lucky charm Once and for all, my fate is open wide And now you hold your breath, and now you close your eyes
Ache 04:13
All alone, all on my own Get out of my head, there’s not room enough for two I close my eyes to be alone, but I can’t escape from you Where were you when I needed you, is this how you want it to be Scully tells me to move on, mulder wants me to believe Can you sleep at night with the weight of all your fears Will the visions in your eyes ever disappear Where were you when I needed you, is this how you want it to be Scully tells me to move on, mulder wants me to believe
Bloom 02:57
Summer in limbo, pass out in the shade, Drunk in nostalgia, wait for it to fade Summer in limbo, listen to the rain, Cigarettes at sunset, dream of better days Plant me in your garden, plant me in the sun Let me drink your water and smile for everyone Absence makes the heart grow, and it blooms and it blooms Absence makes the heart grow, and it blooms and it blooms
Love 04:16
Will my heart, will my heart cave in, From this love, from this love you give How do you fall with grace, Will this love fall in place A hundred miles away, Will you be mine someday Can I call late at night, Can I know this is right This new love crashing in, Destroying from within Can we let our guard down, Maybe this time around Will you pull me aside, Kiss me in the moonlight Where do we go from here, Will my doubt disappear Unravel me with lust, This love I want to trust
Fly 04:11
Let me swallow, your pride for you Can I prove my love, and trade blood for blood Fly away, fly away The other cheek, swollen and pink As I turn and smile, and away I fly Fly away, fly away
Run 04:35
Let’s start a new chapter, I’m on my way over We could kill some time with a bottle of wine and Don’t forget to write me when I’m in the city I’m saying goodbye and I’m starting a new life Can’t stop looking at you In my rear view Magic words left unsaid Float through my head Streaks of light flashing by Against the night This is a perfect day to run away Forgiveness is the best revenge Forgive me and forgive my sins And I’ll forgive all of my friends Forgive forgive and start again
Fall 03:09
Don’t let, don’t let him in, Don’t fall, don’t fall again But when I looked up you were looking back at me Your eyes made my heart jump in my throat suddenly And it takes every part of me to look away Hate I’m still wondering if you’ll be mine someday And even though my future looks bright from here Can’t help thinking with you it’d be brighter still Trying so hard just to keep you off my mind Waiting for the day when our stars align
Kiss 04:39
In my far away castle, in cabin fever dreams, I’m sorry for the things I’ve done but what did it all mean I didn’t mean to hurt you but now i can move on Each day feels like a century but soon i will be gone Soon i will be gone Don’t forget to kiss me goodbye Memories melt like warm butter as my fate closes in And I’ll miss you so fucking much but I won’t fall again I’m nursing demons from the very bottom of my glass Im changing for the better now but can I make it last Don’t forget to kiss me goodbye

Best Songs of 2016 List – Gorilla Vs. Bear

"['Ache'] is immersed in the dreamlike quality of being overly familiar and unnervingly uncanny, where memories and wishes intermingle to form a vivid-yet-spectral landscape perpetually on the verge of evaporating."
– Wake The Deaf.

"'Dream'" is soft but powerful, a spellbinding single of twinkling instrumentals and Mead's angelic vocals."
– The Grey Estates.
