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: Buckle
Jump into your car buckle your suitcase
nothing’s felt so right in years
though your lover’s more than you asked for
nothing’s going to keep you here

drive all night by dove
till the sun wakes up
you can wish on a star
just don’t wait till it falls

Let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light you up
Let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light you up

you’re coming down with the yellow fever
drinking water through a straw
as soon as your body is able
you’ll grow your dreams up tall

drive all night by dove
till the sun wakes up
you can wish on a star
just don’t wait till it falls

Let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light you up
Let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light, let it light you up

my dove…
Track Name: Science Camp
I never thought that I would be the one
to break your little heart into pieces on the floor
and then come back and beg for more

It hurts my head just to feel it all
and every little lie that made us small
leopards in the tall grass creeping
parents keep an eye on your children

I won’t try and deny it, but

I never thought that I would be the one
to break your little heart into pieces on the floor
and then come back and beg for more

It hurts my heart just to think at all
bout every little kiss that I treasured doll
building castles on the water
why do we hide where we falter

There are too many lines on this page to erase and start over

Hold your hands up, let me be the one to tell you I don’t need ya

It hurts my head just to feel it all
it hurts my head
it hurts my heart just to think at all
it hurts my heart

I never thought that I would be the one
to break your little heart into pieces on the floor
and then come back and beg for more
Track Name: Whiskey Winter
Come on now baby, where did you go
I have not seen you, since the first snow
as soon as those sleigh bells rushed into town
baby you’ve been nowhere, you’ve been nowhere to be found
so come on now honey, oh what’s troubling you so
whisper in my ear, oh I’d like to know
winter can be lonely, and move so slow
so come on drink some whiskey by the fire and warm your toes

Come on now baby, don’t make me beg
my throat’s grown weary from calling your name
as soon as that corn grows from seed to sky
baby i’ll be older, i’ll have left you far behind
so come on now honey, oh what’s keeping you away
whisper in my ear, oh don’t be afraid
winter can be lonely, and chill your bones
so come on drink some whiskey by the fire and warm your toes
Track Name: Shadows
When i close my eyes you are still beside me
walking right along
it’s the first few breaths of the foggy morning
that steal my heart and my tongue

This love for me boy was like an anchor
stronger than the waves
but if you’re the one who has pulled it up
well then, what else can I say, today

Don’t stop letting me go
spring will come around
and lay her budding crown
upon my head as you slip out of town

When I turn around you are still behind me
singing some old song
it’s the first few breaths on a sunny morning
when I remember you’re gone

This time for me has been like a mirror
forcing me to see
and the hardest part isn’t moving forward
it’s losing you, don’t you see

Don’t stop letting me go
spring will come around
and lay her budding crown
upon my head as you slip out of town

I am starting to forget you, and I don’t want to
but i’d rather let you fade, than live in these shadows

No i don’t want to, keep living in these shadows
Track Name: More Than Enough
Don’t waste my time
i’d rather be standing on two feet, than balancing on one

Give me a sign
I do my best but I can’t read your mind

I carried all, that water from the spring
to keep our little sprouts growing green
and while you were a hunting in the woods
my heart grew hungry, oh to see your face would do me good

Don’t trap my love, let it run through you as if it were blood
give me a chance, i want to be here but there’s no room to stand

I carried all, that water from the spring
to keep our little sprouts growing green
and while you were a hunting in the woods
my heart grew hungry, oh to see your face would do me good

Tie that bracelet round my little wrist, if it’s summer why am I so cold
wrap that fabric round my swollen face, if you were leaving you’d be gone by now

So give me your hand
oh won’t you come meet me where the sun kisses the sand

See we don’t need much
sharing this breath, well it’s more than enough
Track Name: Covered in Gold
It ain’t easy, letting go of you
but i know, it’s what i have to do
when you first held me, I felt so at home
but now when you touch me, I couldn’t be more alone

And it ain’t funny, but i’m laughing all the same
for it was you boy, who first called out my name
and I let you, under my skin
but tell me did you, ever let me in

Just like the night lets the stars fall
what was once ours becomes nothing at all
but there was a time when we were
we were covered, covered, covered in gold

Though I hate, to say goodbye to you
what else babe, what else am I to do
and if you ever, find me on your mind
please don’t call me, unless you really have the time

Just like the night lets the stars fall
what was once ours becomes nothing at all
but there was a time when we were
we were covered, covered, covered in gold
we were covered, covered, covered in gold
we were covered, covered, we were covered in gold
Track Name: I Want You Out
I want you out, when I get back
I want you gone, and don’t you look at me like that
I’ll miss your hands against my back
but i’m done with wanting what I can’t have

She loved me so, more than I knew
she wanted me, but I didn’t have a clue
so I passed her by with nothing but a smile
i’m done with missing those little signs

I want you out, when i get back
I want you gone, and don’t you look at me like that
I’ll miss the sound, that one you make
but i’m done with waiting for these logs to take

He was the one I called my friend
he knew me like no other man
but that was then and not today
i’m done with being the girl who waits

I want you out, when i get back
I want you gone, and don’t you look at me like that
I’ll miss your hands against my back
but i’m done with wanting what i can’t have
