    Not Alone

    Wherever you are
    We’re just a heartbeat apart
    And I’m not alone
    With no arms to hold me
    Let your spirit enfold me

    I’m not alone

    Light my candles
    In all and holy trust
    Pray over the pieces
    But it’ll never be enough
    Nobody told me
    And the saints ain’t coming through
    Help me summon my faith
    The same way I believe in you

    And should Grace befall
    And I hear you call
    I’ll know
    Let all Grace befall
    For I hear you call
    It’s so

    Through the night with lights on
    And into the day
    Forever broken
    I’ll remain un-awoken
    Til I hear you say

    Wherever you are
    We’re just a heartbeat apart
    And I’m not alone
    With no arms to hold me
    Let your spirit enfold me

    I’m not alone

  • 06:17 Lyrics
    Dream 3

    When it’s all but over
    When there’s no one true
    When I fall and failing
    When I ache for you
    When it’s all too heavy
    When I feel so small
    When there’s only heaven

    The precious spell and time will tell
    The world the tale
    How I’m in love with you
    I do

    When the day betrays me
    I can only crawl
    When I’m far past caring
    For myself at all (anymore)
    When I’m so forsaken
    When the darkness falls
    When I pray just to be taken

    The precious spell and time will tell
    The world the tale
    How I’m in love

    In holy dreams
    You speak and come to me
    In a fountain mystic thick
    And coolly in your hair
    You beckon to
    Then kiss and hold me
    I beg to stay forever there

  • 06:24 Lyrics
    Radioside

    Radioside

    Ear to the mirror
    To hear ya calling
    Sheer veneer
    Shimmer and shine
    Words ascend, electric speed
    Cascade right back to me

    On the radioside

    You’re all ethereal
    Miracle material
    Words ascend, electric speed
    Cascade right back to me

    On the radioside

    You’re all ethereal
    Miracle material

    Listen

    The more I listen for
    At silence’s door
    The life before
    So bruised and sore
    My spirit torn
    For evermore
    If I could only
    Fly
    Fly to you

    No matter where I turn
    With every breath I only yearn
    And ache and weep
    And beg and burn
    And pray each day
    For your return
    Fly
    Fly to you

    Rest now
    In the garden of ours
    And I’ll be along
    To reverse every wrong
    In just a little while
    I’ll meet you there
    Listen
    Through the tallest of trees
    And the warm Summer breeze
    In just a little while
    I’ll meet you there

    Ever and Ever Forever

    Hey!
    Shine your light on
    Shine your light on
    Shine your light on me

    You’re a sight for sorest eyes
    The most heavenly surprise
    And I believe, yeah I do I believe,
    I believe ‘cause of you

    Hey!
    Shine your light on
    Shine your light on - shine your light on me

    A thousand times I prayed to die
    Just to let me find you somehow inside the sky
    But now I see
    Yeah, it’s true I can see
    I can see ‘cause it’s you

    Shine your light on me...

    And you never left my shattered heart
    You’re all and everything I ever wanted from the start
    And I believe, yeah I do I believe,
    I believe ‘cause it’s you

    And all the pain that came before
    All those fled no-weather friends
    It doesn’t matter anymore
    I believe!
    I believe and it’s true!
    I believe!
    And I’m here now with you!

    Shine your light on!
    Shine your light on!
    Shine your light on me

    Ever and ever forever and ever
    And I don’t mind
    Ever and ever forever and ever

    Shine your light on!
    Shine your light on!
    Shine your light on me!

    You’re a sight for sorest eyes
    The most heavenly surprise
    And I believe, yeah I do.
    I believe,
    I believe ‘cause it’s you

    Ever and ever forever and ever
    Shine your light on me

  • 05:06 Lyrics
    She Hears You Calling

    She hears you calling

    Early this morning
    As day broke to dawn
    As dreams gave way to waking
    I heard this psalm
    Your angel was there with a message she sent for you
    She’s heartsick and worried
    And only wishes you knew
    ‘Cause it’s so very true

    She hears you calling

    She knows how you're aching and lonely
    The pain you can hardly bear
    But lead with your heart and don’t break apart
    She’s preparing a place for you there

    She hears you calling

    And she remembers and loves you more
    Than merely mortal
    On earth
    You could ever know
    And she promises
    Just keep the faith
    In the blink of an eye
    Together you’ll go

    She hears you calling

  • 05:19 Lyrics
    Tail O'er Fin

    Well, it’s two if by sea
    One if by dry land
    And it may not be the way
    We had things planned
    But the riptide’s strong
    And I can’t see the shore
    I’m under for the third time
    And you’re the stuff
    Of mariner’s lore

    Don’t you know that I’m all the way in?
    Head over heels
    And tail right over fin

    Trailing your long red hair, you take me there
    Down twenty thousand leagues
    It's magic there
    And I don’t care
    That I can’t really breath
    As we swim by
    And seahorse ride
    Smile each aquatic friend
    Past Octopus Garden
    So happy, I’m starting
    To get the bends

    If it’s only just a dream
    Don’t wake me
    Don’t wanna know
    Take me wherever your spirit may lead me
    Into the deep blue
    And below

    Curled up with you on the seabed I’ll come to know
    Gratefully in your arms in our new home
    Life’s as before In this parallel universe
    All lost is found
    Thank god I drowned
    Ya know?
    It could be worse...

    Don’t you know that I’m all the way in?
    Head over heels and tail right over fin
    With you

  • 10:38 Lyrics
    To The Other Half Of The Sky

    I need you more than ever

    Tell me the story
    Of where we come from
    And then return
    So deep inside my heart
    Where you’ll remain and always burn
    The most beautiful spirit
    Ascension!
    The miracle made true
    Blessed, precious treasure
    Need you more than ever

    I need you more than ever

    God bless your soul

    I need you more than ever

Lyrics

Ye watchers and ye holy ones,
Bright seraphs, cherubim and thrones,
Raise the glad strain, Alleluia!
Cry out, dominions, princedoms, powers,
Virtues, archangels, angels’ choirs:

Alleluia!

Oh higher than the cherubim,
God bless and keep our Summer Serafin,
Hear our prayers, Alleluia!
The love that shakes me to my very core,
Let every word magnify the Lord.

Alleluia!

Respond, ye souls in endless rest,
Ye patriarchs and prophets blest, Alleluia!
Ye holy twelve, ye martyrs strong,
All saints triumphant, raise the song.

Alleluia!

Oh friends, in gladness let us sing,
Supernal anthems echoing,
Alleluia!
Oh higher than the cherubim

Lyrics

O the summer time has come
And the trees are sweetly bloomin'
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the bloomin' heather
Will ye go lassie go?

(Chorus):
And we'll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather
Will ye go lassie go?

I will build my love a bower
By yon cool crystal fountain
And round it I will pile
All the wild flowers o' the mountain
Will ye go lassie go?

(chorus)

I will range through the wilds
And the deep glen sea dreamy
And return wi' their spoils
To the bower o' my dearie
Will ye go lassie go?

(chorus)

If my true love cannot not come
I will never find another
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather
Will ye go lassie go?

Will you go, Summer, go?
And we'll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather
Will you go, Summer, go?
Sweetheart...

  • 07:22 Lyrics
    You Are

    And you're everywhere

    In everything

    You're all I know

    I wait for you

    In everyplace that I can go

    Hear you sing to me

    From some sweet somewhere

    Close my eyes to see

    All I wanna be is with you there

    And your name is love

    And your soul is true

    And everything you told me

    Is just what I'll do

    And everyday is faith

    That I'll find you where

    The earth meets the sky

    Where your soul and mine

    Meet the air

    Where you are

    And it's okay now

    Just to say now

    Any day now

    We'll find our way how

    To where you are

    Hallelu!

    All

    And every word
    And everywhere
    And every thought
    And every prayer
    And every road
    And every thing
    Whatever hope
    Could ever bring

    Just so ya know…

    And every place
    And every trial
    And every face
    And every mile
    And everyone
    And every line
    With every sun
    The fault’s all mine

    Just so ya know…
    All and all…

    And everyday
    And every year
    And every breath
    And every tear
    And every step
    And every time
    And every dream
    I live behind

    Just so ya know…
    All and all

    Angels

    Call the angels in for free

    Let it all come to be

    Call the angels in for me

    Let it all come to be

     

    Because a lifetime is just not enough

    And the earth could never hold me

    Because I still need you so much

    So let the love that has so blessed us

    Finally take me to my rest

    And then…

     

    Call the angels in for me

    Let it all come to be

    Call the angels in for free

    Let it all come to be

     

    And I’m so sorry

    For every mistake

    My heart just breaks

    To think that could have ever made you cry

    It tears me up inside

    And everyday now

    I pay now

    And pray somehow

    Please Heaven to allow

    Let me find you inside the sky

     

    Call the angels in for me

    Let it all come to be

    Call the angels in for free

    Let it all come to be

    Let it all come

    Let it all come

    Let it all come

    Let it all come to be

    Call the angels in for me…

    Can't I Be With You Now?

    Can’t I be with you now?
    Can’t I be with you now?
    Cause you’re my only home
    And I’m so all alone
    Can’t I be with you now

    I’m all the way down
    And I just wanna go
    I’m all the way down
    And I just wanna know

    Can’t I be with you now?
    ‘Cause I just wanna go
    And I just wanna know
    Know all I know you know
    See all you have to show
    Go everywhere you go
    Can’t I be with you now?

    I’m all the way down
    And I just wanna go
    I’m all the way down
    And I want you to…

    Can’t I be with you now?
    Cause you’re my only home
    And I’m so all alone
    Can’t I be with you now?
    ‘Cause I just wanna go
    And I just wanna know
    Know all I know you know
    See all you have to show
    Go everywhere you go
    Can’t I be with you now?

  • 06:05 Story Lyrics
    Downtown Train

    Outside, another yellow moon
    Has punched a hole in the nightime mist
    I climb out the window and down to the street
    I'm shining like a new dime
    Downtown trains are full
    Of all those Brooklyn girls
    They try so hard to break out of their little world

    Well, you wave your hand
    And they scatter like crows
    Yeah, nothing that will ever capture your heart
    Just thorns without the rose
    Be careful of them in the dark
    If I was the one
    You chose to be your only one...
    Can't you hear me, now?
    Can't you hear me, now?

    Will I see ya tonight
    On a downtown train?
    Where every night it's just the same

    I know your window
    And I know it's late
    I know your stairs and your doorway
    Walk down your street and past your gate
    Stand by the light of the four-way
    Watch them as they fall
    Babe, they all have heart attacks
    They'll stay at the carnival
    But they can never bring you back

    Will I see ya tonight
    On a downtown train?
    Where every night it's just the same
    Will I see ya tonight
    On a downtown train?
    All of my dreams
    Just fall like rain.
    On a downtown train

  • 06:12 Story Lyrics
    Letter (to the Darkest Star)

    Love you like no other
    Come for me
    Never be another
    Come for me
    Took you, took your brother
    Come for me
    No reason I can discover
    Come for me
    Only lonely
    Come for me
    Everything that you told me
    Come for me
    From nothin' but dirt
    Come for me
    Do nothin' but hurt
    Come for me
    And I can feel you
    But I don't know where you are
    Won't you take
    However distant or far
    Come to me in secret dreams
    From the darkest star
    Won't you take me where you are?

  • 03:07 Story Lyrics
    Flag Day

    Halfway through the year since you've been here
    Their words don't mean much but who's counting?
    Letters prepared with a frosty air
    The blow-offs keep on mounting
    You could never be sure you would ever have her
    There's no point in denying
    Nowhere to return when every bridge has been burned
    So why not give up for trying?
    Go on - run and hide
    Like every other time
    All those dear, dear friends from way down the other end
    Were oh-so-clear how they showed it
    With all their charms
    Welcome you with folded arms
    The whispers you couldn't hear, now you know it
    As bad as it is, it's as good as it gets
    This empty, idle threat is the best offer yet
    Go on - run and hide
    Like every other time...

  • 07:17 Story Lyrics
    Ocean

    Swallow your tears and make them mine
    Tide's gone out and my mind's made up
    Swallow your tears and make them mine
    Swallow your tears and I'll turn back time
    Tide's gone out and my mind's made up
    Until That Day
    Meet you under the waves-
    Walk all the way to heaven
    Until That Day!
    Until That day!

  • 03:36 Story Lyrics
    No Answer

    No answer
    For the way you are
    The way you are
    In my heart
    All and all and only you
    Nothing to do
    Can't help but fall
    Nothing more to choose
    Happy to lose myself in you
    Just fall
    In my heart
    In my heart

  • 04:32 Story Lyrics
    So Anyway

    Bury me underground
    Where I can't hear a sound
    I'll just slip away
    Like every yesterday
    If I could take your place
    The end you had to make
    I'd gladly make it mine
    Bring you back to find
    All on our own
    Only alone
    For anybody else
    And even for yourself
    There's no one here to see
    Still means the world to me
    All on our own
    Only alone
    Send your dark clouds for me
    What mighta coulda been
    Can now never be
    No need to defend
    We all are in the end
    Send your dark clouds unto me
    I guess you probably know
    Would even tell me so
    There isn't any doubt
    I'm never finding out
    All on our own
    Only alone
    Send your dark clouds for me
    What mighta coulda been
    Can now never be
    No need to defend
    We all are in the end
    Send your dark clouds unto me
    So anyway I guess
    It's only for the best
    We'll have to leave it there
    Still clawing at the air
    All on our own
    Only alone

  • 03:30 Story Lyrics
    Out

    Don't call me out...
    And when you go
    'Cause you're not mine
    I'm just one more
    thing to get behind you
    So never mind
    Forever more, anyway
    Don't call me out
    And every time you stray
    It gets so hard to find a way
    I can't find you
    From where I stand
    Your words aren't clear
    And I can see your life from here
    But never mind
    Forever more, anyway
    Don't call me out
    Don't call me out just yet

  • 05:01 Lyrics
    Moulding

    Keep pushin' what ya know's untrue
    Pushin' me away from you
    And right up to the line
    Of what's yours and what's mine
    Wield your silence to keep me down
    So fuckin' sure I'll just hang around
    Wait forever for you
    Like you're the best I can do
    But this time it's not like before
    I'll follow the moulding around your door
    And outside to a world away
    Where there's nothing more left to say
    Still up to your same old tricks
    Nothing one of your lies can't fix
    And every one of your friends
    Left all at loose ends
    You'll drag 'em all into this
    With your lingering bitterness
    If you can't get your way,
    You'll make everyone pay
    But this time it's not like before
    I'll follow the moulding around your door
    And outside to a world away
    Where there's nothing more left to say...

  • 03:34 Story Lyrics
    Never

    Although you'll never know and it's much too late now
    Even if it's no one's fault how it always breaks down
    Even if there's only so much more that we can even take now
    Even so, there's one more thing I just gotta say now
    I didn't wanna
    I never wanted to
    Fall in love with you
    Thought it something there just for me and you now
    So hard to see you share it with somebody new now
    But maybe it's all you know, it's just what you do now
    I didn't wanna
    I never wanted to
    Fall in love with you
    Can't believe the best thing
    That I ever had
    Could make me feel so bad
    I thought we'd have more time
    I really thought we'd have our whole lives
    I'll have to push that aside
    Pack up my heart, choke down my pride
    'Cause that's him on the other line
    That's his car just pulled up outside
    I didn't wanna
    I never wanted to
    Fall in love with you
    Oh, my love...

  • 05:38 Story Lyrics
    Necessary Weight

    Maybe a thing or two
    More left to say to you
    On the way to the Love that's True
    But you're always so far away
    Misstep right off the mark
    Words better said in the dark
    Still stuck in my throat and heart
    Always so far away
    Your turn
    Think it over sometime
    Let it burn
    Way it always does mine
    Lay me down on the dash of your car
    And dream of the place I dreamt you are
    Between an ice grey moon and the morning star
    Always so far away
    Walls begin to crumble
    And the ground just falls away
    No matter what they told you
    No matter what they say
    Walls begin to crumble
    And the earth just falls away
    By any measurement or standard
    It's just a necessary weight
    Lay me down on the dash of your car
    And dream of the place I dreamt you are
    Between a steel grey moon and the morning star
    Always so far away
    You're always so far away
    Always so far away
    So far away
    Far away...

    Dead End Street

    You can talk yourself into anything
    Believe it's true
    But nothing you can say
    Will ever make me believe again in you
    All you did just to break it
    All you do can't erase it
    Dead End Street
    Lost our way down a
    Dead End Street
    No return
    You tell me where to turn
    When anything that ya wanna
    Is everything that you're gonna
    You tell me who gets burned
    When everything that ya wanna
    Is anything that ya gonna
    Dead End Street
    We can never replace it...

    Anyday

    My stupid hands
    My foolish mouth
    Let the one cover the other
    Never let it out
    I'll never know
    It's so unfair
    Dreamt you float alive above me
    Catch you in mid-air
    If only...
    'Cause now you're gone
    Now you're gone
    And I'm still alive
    And anyday is a good day to die
    Don't sleep
    Can't find my way
    There's nothing left of without you
    All I need to say to you
    But now you're gone
    Now you're gone
    And I'm still alive
    And anyday is a good day to die
    I close my eyes to find you
    I'm right behind you
    'Cause nothing so unkind could be true
    Sleep is finally mine
    And you...
    But daylight shatters
    Daylight shatters
    Nothing matters
    Anyday's a good day to die...

    Comin' Home

    Build their walls around
    Just to keep you down
    But they don't see you
    They don't know
    What they say - don't do it
    Nothing more than a lie
    And they choose it
    They don't see you
    They don't know
    Tell somethin'
    Tell me all
    Can't wait
    I'm comin' home
    You're everything I think of
    Everything I love
    Lived a lonely life
    And swore
    I was maybe alive before
    But whatever that was I don't know
    Built my life around you
    Couldn't ever really live without you
    Just you and me
    I know that you know
    Tell me somethin'
    Tell me all
    Can't wait
    I'm comin' home
    You're everything I think of
    Everything I love
    Comin' home
    Tell me somethin', tell me all
    Comin' home, Summer
    I can't wait
    I'm comin' home
    You're everything I think of
    Everything I love...

    Lost Life

    I still remember the day that we met
    I'm still not anywhere over it yet
    I remember the day that you died
    I only wanna be with you on The Other Side
    And somehow
    Someday
    Somewhere
    Some way
    It was a beautiful life that we had
    And I miss you, now, baby
    Oh, so bad.
    The Light's gone out
    And I ache like thunder
    I still need you
    And I just wonder if...
    Somehow
    Someday
    Somewhere
    Some way...
    Ah!
    Life's so lonely without you
    But I bet
    I haven't even seen the worst of it yet
    All the love inside you
    It saved me
    And I know
    That wherever you are now sweetheart
    Is where I must go
    So, somehow
    Someday
    Somewhere
    Some way
    Ah!

    Molding

    Keep pushin' what ya know's untrue
    Pushin' me away from you
    And right up to the line
    Of what's yours and what's mine
    Wield your silence to keep me down
    So fuckin' sure I'll just hang around
    Wait forever for you
    Like you're the best I can do
    But this time it's not like before
    I'll follow the molding around your door
    And outside to a world away
    Where there's nothing more left to say
    Still up to your same old tricks
    Nothing one of your lies can't fix
    And every one of your friends
    Left all at loose ends
    You'll drag 'em all into this
    With your lingering bitterness
    If you can't get your way,
    You'll make everyone pay
    But this time it's not like before
    I'll follow the molding around your door
    And outside to a world away
    Where there's nothing more left to say...

NOTES
Honored in the Critics Poll of Best Albums of 2013 by Ground Control Magazine as "the most heart-stirring album of the year, it feels and sounds like music that is really from inside someone's own skin, skeleton, bloodstream and remains the most significantly stirring and addictive musical accomplishment I've come across in some time", OF LOVE AND LOSS (Slugg Records) is the second record from NYC's minimalist indie rock band, Bipolar Explorer.

A double-record, OF LOVE …

  • 04:27 Story Lyrics
    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    In dreams I weep to wake from

    Because I'm bound to you

    Oh, thank god for the day

    I was ever found by you

    The snow was falling

    And so did I

    So sweet and kind and true

    It made me cry

    To ever have to say goodbye

    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    I can feel your footstep on the stair

    Smell your ginger sweetness in the air

    And I know you're everywhere

    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    I can feel your footstep on the stair

    All I want is just for you

    To take me with you there

    In dreams I weep to wake from

    Because I'm bound to you

    Oh, thank god for the day I was ever found by you

    So I'll remember, darling

    What you said

    About a life of love, so better led

    It's Christmas, Sweetheart

    (Spoken) Michael: Happy Christmas, Summer.

    (Spoken) Summer: I can't wait til you're here!
