lyrics

Amber and smoke filling up a rented room
Burnt down to the embers of an afternoon
So come meet me down by the water, I will be the one
Picking points on the surface and watching til they’re gone

Barefoot on the bridge with rust on your tennis shoes
Swinging out from the guardrail into golden blue
Collecting scars like baseball cards or shiny things
Cursing the current and the choices that it brings to sing

Everything flows out
Springing from the source now
And if they tell ya to slow down
Then don’t slow down

Stayed in the river so long that it started to feel warm
I felt like floating, forever and fearless
Like I could laugh off a storm
Was all that confidence just wallpaper worn thin?
If water’s what you wanted, then don’t dwell on diving in again

Everything flows out
Springing from the source now
And if they tell ya to slow down
Then that don’t mean you should slow down

And I’ve been conflating my love and location
Taking the same picture every day and filing it away
So when you drink all you can take from those great and bitter lakes
You can redirect the flow and let it go, ya know>

Everything flows out
Springing from the source now
And if they tell ya to slow down
Then that don’t mean you should slow down

about

maxwell stern Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Hailing from the post-industrial shores of Cleveland, OH, Maxwell Stern has been writing music and touring since the early 2000s. He has released a slew of LPs and 7"s, and has played shows pretty much everywhere including an abandoned restaurant in Wyoming, a mall in China, several squats in Germany and a pretty nice bookstore in Australia. He is definitely not the person writing this. ... more
