She wears a halo of ashes
Spectre of the wind
Waits on me so patiently
I no longer can pretend
Sky lies a thousand miles below
Stars shine and the moon is clear
Nothing and for no one
Won't see me if you're here

I've been a long, long time away
Got one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

My angel pulls me closer
As my poison she crawls through
Walks with me so silently
I no longer can refuse
Tomorrow I'm a thousand miles behind
Stars shine and the moon below
Wake me where you find me
Pretend you don't know

I've been a long, long time away
With one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

She wears a halo of ashes
Spectre of the wind
Waits on me so patiently
I no longer can pretend
Tomorrow I'm a thousand miles behind
Face painted in the moon below
Wake me where you find me
Pretend you don't know

I've been a long, long time away
With one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

I've been a long, long time away
With one foot in the grave
Glorified in the dying of the sun

Huh.  I thought this was Echo and the Bunnymen.  I like it.  

 

Yup!  Specifically reminds me somewhat of the song "The Cutter."   {#Whistle}
 Ah.. The Connor boys and Mark Lanegan. Ellensburgs best.
Weird - so much of this sounds like Decembrists ...

Really gets my notice — quite a warbling, sitar-like sound to the strings in this...the strident vocals seem to harken back to another era.
Smokin' hot. Just what the doctor ordered. A unique blend of sounds and great production. This gets on my pod so I can hear it at will. Thanks, RP. 


Kind of reminds me of Wishbone Ash.... Not bad.
quite likable imo  
WOW! Haven't hear these guys in years. Thanks!

"know"? "know"!?! You say it like there's some registry somewhere that lists all the "FABULOUS" bands and that this guy failed to check it. FYI: It's called an opinion and, in mine, Jonno was right. This song is really, really bad.
Its a Seattle thing. You wouldnt understand.
well, wrong in that it's nothing like the Bunnymen.
Nearly Lost You is a really good one from these guys.

Wow! Never knew they had it in 'em. I give it a 7 Dick.

IMHO, Dust is the best of the Trees cd's, primarily because of the contribution (understated but perfectly complimentary) of Benmont Tench on keyboards. These songs will be in "Sweet Oblivion" in a decade, but they are generally good and overlooked examples of the Flannel Years.
