Nate Dykstra I've had a crush on Corey's music since college when he was in a band called Daykit. These Modern Socks were always one of my favorite bands after that. And now I'm so happy to see him release some new solo tunes. Just what the doctor ordered. Favorite track: Get Real.

Track Name: Records
I got started alone tonight
I hid my wounds and I painted the door
I'm right there with the high fives
I'm not around when you're looking for more
I keep moving the light around
I need everyone to borrow me hope
The beat's up in the mix tonight
The beat's gonna have to carry me home

I'm out of power
I need a bed
I'm on that record that's in her hand
Stop it, you know you want it, too
You can't reach out if you've got no one to do it to

Bring me back to your window
Promise me you'll always lead me home
I swear to God my love will always resemble what you'll never know

You had several drinks tonight
You had evidence that she wanted more
Go out, bury yourself alive
Go out burning till the boat's ashore
Of all the nights that you need someone
Of all the people to submit a return
She showed up in a dress tonight
So take a minute now to watch her turn

You won't remember
You're getting old
You never did it but it took its toll
Stop it, you know you want it, too
Just don't wake up if you've got someone to sleep with you

Bring me back to your window
Promise me you'll always lead me home
I swear to God my love will always resemble what you'll never know
Track Name: You Missed It
You've been wandering
You've got a blank ticket home
Paint affection quick and go smooth to the next city on

But why do you always wanna run?
I suspect some fall out, lady.
As you arrive you're almost gone

Girl you missed it by a mile
You missed it

That regrettable slip I know through all the roads I've been on
Down to the roots of it
Down to the root of it all

But why do you always wanna run?
I suspect some fall out, lady.
As you arrive you're almost gone

Girl you missed it by a mile
You missed it
Track Name: It's All You Know
Sympathy in the air comforts you and it keeps you there, my love
For your own good, my love
Dream about deliverance
You want out, I built you a fence, my love
It's for your own good, my love
For your own good

You just survived another moment in the avalanche that stole your shadow

You hate it but you can't let go
You'd leave it, but it's all you know

Charity holds you here
Both your pride and your fear
I know, my love.
I've known it for years, my love
You exist all alone
Hand it off, take it home to wear, my love
I put it on you, my love
I put it on you

You just survived another moment in the avalanche that stole your shadow

You hate it but you can't let go
You'd leave it, but it's all you know
Track Name: All the Signs
You could be my effortless desire
Silently together we'd conspire

Rehearse the line and say it
We've got words tonight.
That's all.
I've got all the signs
All the signs from you
All the signs that talk to me like tapping on a wire

You could be my effortless desire

Rehearse the line and say it
We've got words tonight.
That's all.
I've got all the signs
All the signs from you
All the signs that you could be my effortless desire
Track Name: Get Real
Lover, I have been reduced to a foot note on the final page that you rewrote
Like a flare at war with the darkness or a joke that nobody noticed
I am desperate for recognition
I can sing if nobody listens

Tell me to, I'll say everything that I know we're both thinking 'cause we're hiding from it every day

What do we need to do to get real?
How do I justify what I need?
Whatever could bring you to me?

Meanwhile, I walk back and forth on a tightrope
Think I see an end but I just don't
As the pros and cons trade their voices, I am hypnotized by the choices

Tell me to, I'll say everything that I know we're both thinking 'cause we're hiding from it every day

What do we need to do to get real?
How do I justify what I need?
What do we need to do to get real?
How do I know you see what I see?
Whatever could bring you to me?
