Need Someone

Day’s winding down - nights are getting long
Are you blue and cold and all alone?
The dark won’t tell how to make it through
And the light can’t hold you the way I do

You’re gonna need someone
You’re gonna need someone
On your own – in the great unknown
Through the midnight sun
Through winter’s glow
In a world gone wrong
You’re gonna need someone

They called you out – you ran and hid
But we still don’t know what they think you did
Baby, please come home – I’d never turn you in
Send me some kind of sign – I’ll put an end to this


Oh baby when the shadows splinter
And the sunlight tumbles through my yard
The spirit moves with a wild hunger
And I pray you’ll darken my back door
Let ‘em talk, let the rumors fly
We don’t need no one to understand
Meet me down in the grove tonight
And you and I will atone for all our sins

Think you’re taking off - cuttin’ outta town?
You’ll never make it far – baby, you laugh too loud
Wanna flip me off? I’ll reign fire down
I’ll never give you up - baby, I’m too damn proud

You’re gonna need someone…

These songs weave beautiful, forlorn tales in a matter of minutes, but with a defiant note of hope.” The songs on 2018's Light Years album play like postcards & snapshots written during an endless road trip around Alaska - or along every other dreamy, scenic stretch of highway anywhere... ... more
