lyrics

been a long way wandering
to this room i've found
counting subway stops
back and forth to puget sound
pushing every pore open
till i bleed frontier
been everywhere to go
except for here

there's an old, dark room
looking for a door
there's a bright eyed soldier
hungry for more war
would you sit a little closer
let me share your light?
shine it into my outline

to the new road
that i'm walking on
it's a new road
that i'm being led on
it's a new road
that i'm traveling on

run away, away to the future
volume up, headphones on
give me love
give me a mirror
give me what turns me on
photo posted, photo caption
adding to my self portrait
hungry for the world's reaction
comment on my silhouette

now you take away the sirens
and you call my bluff
and you tell me that this moment
has to be enough
and you burn a path through me
leading into you
so i know that i'm enough too

it's a new road
that i'm walking on
it's a new road
that i'm being led on
it's a new road
that i'm traveling on

about

David Waingarten Portland, Oregon

David plays music to keep himself company. He digs records that sound like they were recorded in bedrooms and basements, and is inspired by the raw intimacy and honesty of Paul Simon, Elliot Smith, Blaze Foley and Gillian Welch. His songs are about healing, living in your car, longing to be found, gratitude, riding subways, finding silence, and stumbling along your path. ... more
