about

Ghost Tiger Santa Barbara, California

Coming from a variety of musical backgrounds the members of Ghost Tiger combine old and new flavors from the east, west, and south in a synthesis of four-part harmony, atmospheric sound, poly-rhythmic grooves, and soulful vocals that culminate in a refreshing approach to indie-rock. Aptly described once as an "epic, more Bluegrass-folk Bon Iver crossed with the Underground Railroad gone Portland" ... more

Track Name: Birdfeeder
Why would you string together all those lovely words
Weaving a nest where they could be heard
Oh and why would you sit with me there and dream of what was to come
If you are the kind of man who gets scared and runs

I've lived long enough to know it ain't about right or wrong
It's simply what is and what was may now be gone
Oh and that's not to say what is no more was a lie
But I'd rather keep to my happy self than be with one who can't decide

Chorus:
Don't you know me
Go on show me
You can talk yourself into any room
But my mama taught me it ain't what you say but what you do
And ain't that true

Why would you paint pretty pictures in my head
Leading me in to a dance you couldn't step
Oh and that's not to say I have hands that never shake
But now I'm not the one making promises that break before they're made

I've lived long enough to know that nothing stays the same
What a hard thing to grasp for our hungry little brains
Oh and that's not to say you weren't the match that lit my flame
But now fire doesn't fight the clouds when they decide to rain

Chorus

No more words
I just wanna dance
Track Name: Madeline
Don't stop stretching
You never thought you'd make it past your toes
But there you go
Proving yourself wrong again

Don't stop talking
What a pretty little voice that you have
But there you go
Saying nothing at all

Oh and me, I've been sleeping on trains
So throw me in your machine
I need some soap to get clean
Oh, It's been more than a while
Since I felt the fire, that burning desire to sing

But those words you write to me in the night
They're a twisted nest where I lay to rest til it's time
Oh Madeline

Don't stop searching
You never thought you'd make it past your door
But there you go
Off to some foreign shore

Don't stop dreaming
What a pretty little face that you have
But there you go
Stuffing leaves in a bag

Oh and me, I've been sleeping on trains
So throw me in your machine
I need some soap to get clean
Oh, It's been more than a while
Since I felt the fire, that burning desire to sing

And I cannot wait just to see your face
As the morning light drinks that midnight blue from your eyes
Oh Madeline
