about

Nearby Seattle, Washington

Nearby is the solo project of Irene F. Barber (Dust Moth, Erik Blood).

Track Name: Off A High Fall
talk with me though i get uneasy
part of you and still so unfamiliar
we have lingered long in stillness
can we flutter

there we are in the night
we get lost in the flick of a light
and there we are in the night
there we are

left me blind walking off a high fall
the vines i had grown for eyes
dropping downward
to catch you in the moonlight

there we are in the night
we get lost in the flick of a light
and there we are in the night
there we are

heaven on earth is this light in this moment
heaven on earth is this light how we know it
heaven and earth aligned, oh
heaven and earth aligned

have i gone too far?
can i let it rest?
why’d you go so far?
Track Name: Nearer Still
when i lose my voice, when i reach out to you
going deeper
you’re the flock of birds flying around my house
your beaks’ full

get alone and get high
half is love half in dreaming
every single time
nearer still
draw me in

though the dark is nigh, i’m here
in between every petal’s hue
though the dark is nigh, i’m here
in between all your blossom

show me the door
try and tell me what’s her name
it’s a dark shadow for a flower soft as you

get alone and get high
half is love half in dreaming
every single time
nearer still
draw me in

though the dark is nigh, i’m here
in between every petal’s hue
though the dark is nigh, i’m here
in between every petal’s hue
and though the dark is nigh, i’m here
in between all your blossom
though the dark is nigh, i’m here
in between every petal’s hue
Track Name: Breakers
i’ve been away
a summer wave warned me
hell under water
a summer wave warmed me up
oh, wake me up
oh, wake me
breakers roll us out on the shore
breakers roll us out on the shore
i’ve been drowning the waves for you
i’ve been drowning the waves for you
have you gone and drifted out?
how can i get back to you?
breakers roll us out on the shore
breakers roll us out on the shore
Track Name: Awake In Departure
i do hold back as a silent sort
i get called back in this silencer
there’s a silence in my ringing ears

there’s no way to go home
there’s no way to see farther

we grow tired at the sound of it
let’s get back in our hollow moulds
you get caught in that hazel spit
i get high as the sun will rise
set you off

mother, it’s got to wait
our love is on the other side
we shy away from love on the other side
our love’s on the other side
for when we wake

we grow tired of all of it
we fall back in our hollow moulds
i get high as the sun will rise
can’t undo what we never find
