about

Sunfields Montréal, Québec

After babies being born, houses being bought, walls being painted, and songs being written, re written and writ again, Montreal's Sunfields have surfaced with a new record, almost four years after their debut was released, which was once described as '...the most overlooked album of 2010.' ... more

Track Name: Ghost
Ghost

You’re just like a ghost no one can touch you at all
You’ve got eyes like a wheel and hands like a burning wall

You’re just like a ghost hiding in the dark
And you’re waiting around, waiting around for a spark

You’re just like a ghost going from door to door
But you don’t understand the water from the shore
It’s the ghost in your heart that keeps you awake in the dark
It’s the ghost in your bed that’s trying to sleep in your arms

You’re just like a ghost no one can see you at all
But you’re deeper than prayer and taller than any wall

You’re eyes are like knives you just don’t want me to see
So you try to touch but you couldn’t feel
It’s the ghost in your heart that keeps you awake in the dark
It’s the ghost in your bed that’s trying to sleep in your arms
Track Name: Modern Day Kid
Modern Day Kid

The sun will rise, the sun will fall
Can you hear the clarion call?
A million bombs from miles away
Are dropping down as children play
It's not that dark with open eyes
But you're scared to live and you're scared to die

Goodbye to hearts and lonely times
To anyone who's on your mind
In sun dipped fields of memories
That leave you burnt and in need
It's not that dark with open eyes
But you're scared to live and you're scared to die

Give me a reason give me a lie
I don't wanna fight I don't wanna die
If I wasn't so lonely I wouldn't of cried
Give me some honey give me some time
Give me a reason give me a light
I don't wanna smoke I don't wanna die
'Cause I will try to forget

Silly girl won't you speak?
There's a box of rain in your cheek
You move in shadows behind the lines
Like the hurricane in your eyes
It's not that dark with open eyes
But you're scared to live and you're scared to die
Track Name: Sentimental Heart
Sentimental Heart

Now the night is born again
All I hear is whispering
Saw your shadow on the wall
When the light went in the hall
Count a hundred down to one
Count a hundred from the sun
Counting all the words I’ve said
And all the words still in my head

Oh my sentimental heart
Just keep rolling out your love
But I never want to part
And I never want to hurt
Oh my sentimental heart
Just keep rolling out your love
Don’t fall apart again

All I want to do is take it from you
All I want to say I take it from you

Can’t keep throwing these old stones
Can’t keep breaking these old bones
Track Name: Oh! Dear Mother
Oh! Dear Mother

Oh Dear Mother God please help me, again

I was sitting on a sound trying to make a dollar
Listening to some girls and all the words they holler
Buried in a sound trying to get it to you

Oh Dear Mother God please help me, again
Oh Dear Brother God don’t tell me, again

I was dying for a sound trying to make a dollar
Looking for some girls and all the words they holler
Waiting on a sound buried in some money
Voices underground don’t sound like anybody
Buried in the sound trying to get it to you
Oh Dear Mother, don’t tell me again
Track Name: Kiss Shy
Kiss Shy

It’s the hardest thing to tell you
But I really want to make you
Just another lost emotion, another affirmation
‘Cause your heart’s a heavy mountain
And it’s moving in slow motion

You know everybody’s broken
‘Cause hearts are always open
Just a miscommunication, to another station
But your heart’s a heavy mountain
And it’s moving in slow motion

You kiss shy with your cocaine eyes
Your broken lips and your bottled rhymes
Your kiss shy you kiss shy
It’s a lie, it’s a lie, it’s a lie

The heart’s a lonely hunter
When everyone is under
But I really want to meet you
I really want to get you
But your heart’s a heavy mountain
And it’s moving in slow motion
Track Name: Prairie Girls
Prairie Girls

Prairie girls they don’t understand
They come out of the grassland and into your hands
Prairie girls they want to forget, you just can’t believe them

Prairie girls won’t leave me alone
They keep knocking and knocking but nobody’s home
Prairie girls they can’t be alone
They’re scared of the dark and television
Prairie girls they don’t go to church
But they rise from the ashes out of the hurt

Prairie girls they don’t say a word
They keep talking and talking out of the herd
Prairie girls they don’t ever cry
But they’ve got their reasons, they just don’t know why
Prairie girls will light up your smoke
They’ll swallow your cancer and laugh at your jokes

They’re in the kitchen, on television, under every stone
They’re in your pocket, just like a locket, and they’re on the phone
They’re in the ceiling, they’ve got no feeling, but you can turn them on

Prairie girls they don’t understand
They come out of the ashes out from the land
Prairie girls get out of my head
But they rise from the ashes out of the dead
Track Name: Drunken Choir
Drunken Choir

Take me to your darkened door
Where the crows they heed no more
Take me down the silver line
Where the city always shines
Let me hear a drunken choir
Where the voices never tire
Night it come and then it hides
The sun will never burn your eyes
If you wake and it don’t shine
I won’t mind no I won’t mind
My love, she don’t wanna hear, My Love

Bury me under a tree, where the sun won’t bother me
Save your prayer for those who live
The ones whose love you take and give
I’ve seen your face a thousand times
Between these words, between these lines
Don’t forget that Holy Ghost
He’s the one you need the most
Track Name: Hungry Animals
Hungry Animals

God damn you were right, what’s dark now will be light
Like tall ships at night, your words just don’t sound right

When hands can’t feel to grip, and lips won’t seem to lip
And tongues are out of time, and words are out of rhyme

When minor is the key, and major is the plea
Like animals in heat, hungry in the streets
Hiding from the sun until it’s gone

Your words crow in your cheek, you talk but you don’t speak
Like animals in heat, lying in the street

When major is the key, and minor is the plea
And God damn all the tongues, whose words prey on the young
Hiding from the sun until it’s gone
Track Name: Mumbled Words
Mumbled Words

You say your named on rock and roll
Look at you know, you’re getting so old
No hands can make you come to shore
You’re living in sound but you still want more

It’s the games you play alone in the dark
Trying so hard to leave your mark
You can’t lose but you’ll never win
Like being asleep in a dream
Alone

You say your named on rock and roll
Look at you know, you’re getting so old
It’s the words you say without a sound
Trying so hard to be found
Track Name: Here Come That Dream Again
Here Come That Dream Again

Was born to live, made to die
I can’t forgive, but I’ll try

It’s part of, this pain inside
It’s in your heart, it’s in your eyes
I’ve been waiting, yes I’ve been waiting
And I know it’s here again

Here come that dream again

It comes in waves, through the night
It keeps me up, just like a light
I’ve been waiting, yes I’ve been waiting
And I know it’s here again

Here come that dream again
Track Name: Belly of the Sun
Belly of the Sun

All the pennies in your eyes
Cut a hole right through the sky
It’s so quiet here in the belly of the sun
Where they’ll bury you and they bury everyone
In the sky

Love has taken every breath and left me in this mess
Without you I’m alone, I’m only skin and bones
Without a heart or home, Just like a sinking stone
Like magnets we can’t part, Cause you’re my sacred heart
And just like everyone, We’re buried in the sun
