Ghost 04:19
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

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

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
4.
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

Kiss Shy 05:58
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

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
7.
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
8.
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
9.
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
10.
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
11.
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

about

SUNFIELDS Montréal, Québec

Imagine Elliot Smith hanging out with Tom Petty in the back of Neil Young's van while listening to Sparklehorse.
Acid-laced pop Sunfields is the brain child of Jason Kent. The quartet hails from Montreal.
Their debut, Palace in the Sun (2010), was described as
'…the most overlooked album of 2010.' HABITAT, their sophomore, is "…blossoming like a field of poppies in a rainy English field."
