about

This album was recorded with guitar and vocals live together. One mic configuration, whole takes, no edits, no comping. It's filled with imperfections. And for that reason, I hope you enjoy.

Nathan Reich Nashville, Tennessee

"In addition to being a technically brilliant guitarist, Nathan's lyrics put you in a specific place and mindset - it usually has something to do with heartbreak, late nights, and waking up the next day in some new city." - Flavorpill

Track Name: Trophy On A Shelf
Drawing in to learn how to draw
Color shines as the sun it falls
Promising to have no end
The more you pull the less it bends

Looking your way
I'm looking your way
On the highway

In all this rain I came to see
You are you but just like me
With a hundred desires and no room to burn
I spin the wheel but nothing turns

Useless to help a trophy on the shelf
You only stare one way
If only tomorrow was today
Nothing good would get away

In the end I came to see
You are you but just like me
With a hundred desires and no room to fade
I thought of light but only found shade

Looking your way
I'm looking your way
On the highway
On the highway
I'm looking your way
On the highway
I'm looking your way
On the highway

Useless to help a trophy on the shelf
You only stare one way
If only tomorrow was today
Nothing good would get away

On the highway
On the highway
Track Name: Lily
I think I'll go to find some air
Through the hallway and down the stairs
With a feeling that I won't care
For anything that I'll find out there

No where no where
I'm going no where tonight
No where no where
I'm going no where tonight

I hear them barking down the street
As our baby tries to fall asleep
Late at night I do my work for the week
For everything that matters

And from the bedroom I can hear the cars
Buying something from the liquor store
I think about who I was before
And now I know it doesn't matter

It doesn't matter it doesn't matter
It doesn't matter who I was before
It doesn't matter it doesn't matter
It doesn't matter it doesn't matter

I think I'll go to find some air
Through the hallway and down the stairs
With a feeling that I won't care
For anything or anyone out there

No where no where
I'm going no where tonight
No where no where
I'm going no where tonight
Track Name: The Path Out East
The bridge was sparkling like restless stars
The hustle of the evening cars
This is where I asked for your hand in mind
Remembering all the bonds we tied

So hold on love hold onto me
This path out east heads where the hungry
Lead to the feast
It heads where the hungry
Lead to the feast

As our edifice no longer stands
And we've moved on to separate land
We still talk from time to time
But your voice has changed and so has mine
Your voice has changed and so has mine

So hold on love hold onto me
This path out east heads where the hungry
Lead to the feast
It heads where the hungry
Lead to the feast
Track Name: Joelle
You drank too much again
Lost your common sense
Now there’s no more money left
As you're climbing the neighbors fence

Before you’re home to bed
Home to bed
Home to bed

You drank too much again
Lost your innocence
Just take off all your clothes for him
After all he is a gentleman

Before you’re home to bed
Home to bed
Home to bed

Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle I know the name too well
Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle I know the name too well

You drank too much again
Now I know the end
Go find some lonely passerby
And climb inside his head
I think you know how

Just take him home to bed
Home to bed
Home to bed

Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle I know the name too well
Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle
Oh Joelle you can go to hell
Track Name: Paramedics
Counting lines on city blocks
Counting cigarettes left in the box
Counting couples on the shore
Everyday I'm counting more

It's all I can do
To keep my mind off you
It's all I can do
To keep my mind off you

Call the neighbors call the cops
It makes no sense now if I stop
To end the counting is all I want
Kill two birds with two shots

It's all I can do
To keep my mind off you
It's all I can do
To keep my hands off you

Counting lines on city blocks
Counting cigarettes left in the box
Paramedics keeping score
Making jokes and everyday counting more

It's all I can do
To keep my mind off you
It's all I can do
To keep my hands off you
Track Name: Somewhere In Colorado
I see it here in the way the leaves are moving
A hurricane will be coming
Though I don't know how soon

I close the window and try
To get some sleep ‘til the morning
While the clouds outside are forming
Will I ever feel prepared?

Somewhere in Colorado I am drowning in a bottle
I see the sun but I know it don’t see me
Somewhere in Color ado I am drowning in a bottle
I see my home but I know it don’t see me

A thousand miles could I make it any farther
I don't want to be a martyr
Is there something I could trade?
There was a time when I thought that we were something
Now we’re a little more than nothing
Can you blame me for my fears?

Somewhere in Colorado I am drowning in a bottle
I see the sun but I know it don’t see me
Somewhere in Colorado I am drowning in a bottle
I see my home but I know it don’t see me

Somewhere in Colorado I am drowning in a bottle
I see the sun but I know it don’t see me
A thousand miles from the edge of California
I see my home but I know it don’t see me
