Light of Day 02:41
I see the light of day, reaching through the clouds there’s something about your smile, makes me feel okay Well I finally found my way, yeah I found a path through the pain I see the light of day, shining through your eyes burning through my haze, making me feel alive But I found I’m not the same, now I’m giving too much away Away, I’ve gone away I can’t look the other way, I can’t look the other way Away, I’ve gone away I see the light of day something about your smile
2.
Stay 03:53
If I had my way I’d never have to smile I’d just close my eyes until you went away But now you’ve put me here inside a broken mirror surrounded by mistakes, guided by the snakes Now I’ve found my way, all I wanna do and all I want to say, were left inside my brain I just wanna stay And all I want to do is take it out on you when you call my name I just nod and smile Now I’ve found my way, all I wanna do and all I want to say, were left inside my brain so look into my eyes, tell me I’m alive that I’ve found a home, I just wanna stay If it’s in my head then I know it’s real because everything I do is based on how I feel and all the reasons why disappear in smoke because everything’s a joke Now I’ve found my way, you see it in my eyes I really got away, you’ll never know how high I really want to stay Hey, all I want to say, all I want to do, I just want to stay with you
3.
Freefall 04:34
Just another freedom we take for granted smiling at a stranger, learning from one another all the news is breaking me down, people turning inside out are we in a freefall, spinning into oblivion Oh Lord, I’m tired of all those lies all they want is money, they don’t care if it takes us down if you give you’re weak somehow, but if you cheat you’re in power Oh Lord, I’m tired of all the lies Of your lies all your lies
4.
Everybody steps in sin, everybody has clipped wings when you say you’ve lost your way do you mean you’re here to stay? It’s alright, come on in If you want I’ll give you money, if you want you’ll never worry It’s time to go Everybody likes to talk, nobody wants to listen so bare your soul I’d like to know what you did that brought you here It’s alright, come on in If you want I’ll give you money, if you want you’ll never worry It’s time to go, it’s time, it’s time to go home We never talk about getting old, we don’t want to admit it We hold on to a ribbon of hope, thinking we can still make it one last time, but all you are is what you give If you want I’ll give you money, if you want you’ll never worry It’s time to go, it’s time to go, it’s time to come home
5.
Long Shot 05:04
I know it’s a long shot I gotta give it a chance Alright, feel right, it’s time to step out of line I know I can take it or leave it but I can’t settle for that It’s not enough to be alive I’m gonna show you what I got And I feel like I can, what can’t you understand? So why do we always play by the rules? It’s a long shot So why do we always have to play by the rules? I know I’m a loser yeah I never gave a damn I know that I don’t ever want to be like you And I feel like the man is just another scam (chorus) Well I don’t want to lose so I can choose it’s time to make a move Don’t you understand? It’s all we ever had
6.
All Eyes 04:54
All eyes, use your eyes, it’s all lies you see No prize, shame’s no guide, there’s no crime to thieves You’re no hero, trade lies for gold You’re no hero, small and hateful All lies, all the time, open your eyes and see Take sides, split and divide, sell lies and deceive (chorus) Light shines, fear grows, will darkness clear
7.
Satellite 03:25
All I want, is to take a chance of making something great I don’t care if it don’t pay the bills, it’s what my heart demands I’m not a satellite circling around the sun I’m just a satellite floating out of sight I may be lost, but I’m free to be what I can be Time is short, life is long, what are we waiting for (chorus)
8.
Left Behind 03:10
Daddy drinks his bonus and mommy smokes my stash and sissy’s out of rehab and she stole my cash Peter’s afraid you’ll see him, Peter’s afraid you’ll say Friday night we get it right, Friday night’s the night we fight Friday night we let it out, Friday night’s the night we die Johnny’s hit the bottle, Lucy’s spilled the pills Freddie’s off the rails now and he’s gaining speed (chorus)
9.
I need something more, to feel something more than I’ll know the liar past the test I feel something’s wrong, I’ve know it all along as I’ve walked down the road to Babylon I need something more, to feel that I’m worth a damn and a prayer for my ghost I feel something’s wrong, I feel that I’ve gone too far but never far enough (it’s wrong, it’s wrong, it’s wrong I know but I feel so empty gotta get something) I know how it hard it is to lie to me when something’s wrong (it’s wrong, it’s wrong, t’s wrong I know but I feel so empty gotta get something inside me) And I know it’s just a part of me but something’s wrong Put your feelings away, you gotta be weary of the game Well I don’t feel like a sinner but I’m sitting here with Cain On again off again, you spin the wheel but never win But at least you played And now the devil knows your name (chorus) Start your healing today, you must be tired of the same I don’t feel like a winner, but I’m treated like a king For all your sins you make amends, you swallowed your lies now you’re cleansed As you’re sitting there with Cain You’re just crying in pain And the devil knows your name He’s just laughing there with Cain As you’re lying there in pain And the devil knows your name
10.
Take It Slow 04:46
And you know you’ve got to take it easy And you know you’ve gotta take it slow But you never want to leave the party Till you know it’s time to go When you see the lights below you know All the lies you told are blown, oh no And they say you got the life of Reilly and they say it must be nice it don’t matter that you don’t matter all they see is your golden robe When you see the lights below you know All the lies you told are blown, oh no You’re all out of luck And you know you can’t solve a problem unless you know what the question is and you know you know you know the answer but you know you gotta take it slow When you see the lights below you know All the lies you told are blown, oh no You’re all out of luck Lay low, take it slow
11.
It’s not over until we say so It’s like heaven is under the sea and mermaids are angels that God set free sunshine reminds us we’re having the time of our lives It’s not over, unless we give in I feel like I’ve gone away It’s not over until we say so It’s like heaven is just out of reach Galaxies are floating all around me and I reach out for answers but the stars are in me it’s not over, unless we give in I feel like I’ve gone away It’s not over until we give in

about

Heavy Swell is the third Night Herons release. Recorded by Dana Berry and Mike Assenzio, the new music has a heavier tone, musically and lyrically. Berry still writes of hopeful disillusionment, but has turned his focus outward, grappling with the emergence of the dark side of the American ethos. The duo has added Dave Leonard on bass and Kedar Patel on guitar and is performing a record release show 11/7/19 at the Golden Bull in Oakland.
