about

The debut EP from the New England alt art rock duo BRUSHFIRE.

*Brushfire is music -- timeless, evocative, tortured, reflective, starry-eyed, intense, and everything in between. Haunting vocals and weighty prose dance like smoke across the still night air with shimmering guitars offering an impressionistic glimpse into the worlds from whence they came. Theirs is a hopeful yet weathered and often twisted waltz of the human variety ready to carry you to a place where the nightmares sit with the four leaf clovers - always just a little out of reach.*

Track Name: Twenty-Three
Lyrics:
Tell me a secret - one I can keep.
Make me a promise and I swear I'll believe.
Then speak no more.

I once made a promise I just couldn't keep.
I'm not ashamed to say it, 'cause I didn't understand it
'til I met you...
...thinking "If I could hold his hand, I would be stronger then.
If he would walk with me, maybe I could stand again
And fear no more."

...

I'll share a secret if I think you'll believe me.
And make you a promise that I swear I can keep.
Then speak no more.

Track Name: Tin Mirror
Be kind – you know that you could hurt me
Be kind.
Behind your back is an arrow
And behind my back is a wall.

But I am part of the problem.

In my tin mirror, I can’t see clear enough to tell a saint from a criminal.
So don’t you paint me a liar – don’t you blame what you hate – don’t you play me the fool.
‘Cause I know when I’ve spoken too soon.

Running out of clocks to count the times I’ve run out of keys and found locks on the doors.
The iron’s made of ashes – the iron’s made of ashes.
And the shadow – it grows and grows and grows, I fear…

I am part of the problem.
Age makes everything harder.

In my tin mirror, I can’t see clear enough to tell a saint from a criminal.
So don’t you paint me a liar – don’t you blame what you hate – don’t you play me the fool.
‘Cause I know when I’ve spoken too soon.

I am part of the problem.
Track Name: Silhouette
Silhouette – talk to me…
Frozen – you frighten me…
Alas, I am alone.
Lie, like you see this everyday.

Cigarrette – burn for me…
Stubborn mind – you’re fighting me…
Calloused, impressioned
Scarred and scared everyday.

You’re fearless – so enlighten me.
I hold you – you run from me.
I'm screaming - fight for me
Disillusion me
Lie – say I’m worth it everyday.

I can’t touch you – it won’t hold you
Everything will fall.
Everything I know is wrong.
I will see it fall.
Oh, my soul…everything I know is wrong…
Track Name: Wool and Cotton
Since the shadows of my youth
I’ve been down a road or two
I’ve been tried - and here I’ve failed
Just to drive another nail in deep

Is it tried and is it true?
Is it me or is it you?
Let me wonder until I’m sure
I’ve got time to love you more

I’ve had wool and I’ve had cotton
I’ve had gold and not forgotten
This is where I’ve reached the end
Of winters long at summer’s end and never looking back again
This is where we can begin.

Oh, how I hate letting go
Have I ever told you so?
I pray I’ll never know
A day when you don’t need me so

I’ve had wool and I’ve had cotton
I’ve had gold and not forgotten
This is where I’ve reached the end
Of winters long at summer’s end and never looking back again
This is where we can begin.
