lyrics

Out of a dream
And into the black
Fumbling for the words
To blunt the attack
I'm just a note
At the foot of your bed
The summer left me burned
The fall left me dead

I've crawled through the years
More secure in my fears

So I'll send you the letter
From my crystal cocoon
Tied to the string of a heart-shaped balloon
And if my words should escape me
Let them float to the moon
And I send all of my love
My love to you

The sun had arisen behind a mountain of smoke
Your eyes were in flames
And your hands were cold
And like a stream
Down every freeway you flow
Searching for the stars
In the headlights glow

And you crawl through the years
More secure in your fears

So I'll send you the letter
From my crystal cocoon
Tied to the string of a heart-shaped balloon
And if my words should escape me
Let them float to the moon
And I send all of my love
My love to you

I lost you back
Before we had known
That this road we walk
Could never lead home
And if the wind should carry the songs of our youth
The planks in our eyes will remind us the truth

And so I retreat into the eye of the storm
Still trying to feel like the day I was born
But my eyes are dry
I swear to you
This is not goodbye
And there's nothing to prove

And we'll crawl through the years
More secure in our fears

So I'll send you the letter
From my crystal cocoon
Tied to the string of a heart-shaped balloon
And if my words should escape me
Let them float to the moon
And I send all of my love
My love to you

Elmer and the Ceramic Trees Janesville, Wisconsin

Conceived in the summer of 2012 by Janesville, Wisconsin singer-songwriter Robbie Haas, Elmer and the Ceramic Trees blend the lush melodies of bands like The Beatles and Big Star with the doom-and-gloom pop of The Cure and The Smiths, the college rock jangle of REM and The Replacements, and the big choruses of u2 and Arcade Fire, to form a style of indie pop that is both catchy and honest. ... more
