about

Eric and Erica Durham, North Carolina

" “Dream Pop” is the perfect descriptor for Eric + Erica’s sound...The ambient, twinkling aura created by the musicians’ tools of the trade — Eric on piano and Erica strumming an autoharp — warmly embraces Fink’s goosebump-worthy vocals and intimate, bewitching melodies, with Kuhn providing perfectly placed low-register harmonies." -City Beat ... more

Track Name: Lake Michigan
dreaming of the way it was
in stories that we told
watching all the people pass
do the work they know

i didn't have to tell them
they are late again
someone there will
set them straight instead

but oh my god what do i really know?
oh my garden grows anyhow

wait for my friends to write me again
watch all them find their brand new married men
didn't have to tell you i miss all of them
want to see them again
oh Lake Michigan

but oh my God do i have to stay?
oh my garden grows anyway

every once in a while
i go back and see
all my memories
staring back at me
and i tell myself every time
"there's a better way, but it's not mine"

oh my God what do i really know?
oh my garden grows anyhow
oh my God what do i really know?
oh my garden grows anyhow
Track Name: First Time
what about the first time?
we couldn't stop the lights in our minds
what about all the ways you say goodnight?

what about the run around?
when i go up and you come down
what about all the promises we made?

it wasn't like the first time
it wasn't like the first time
it wasn't like the first time i saw you

what about tomorrow night?
and all the ways that we try and try
build our days a thousand first times high

it wasn't like the first time
it wasn't like the first time i saw you
i saw you
i saw you
i saw you
Track Name: Come Back
honestly, i was not listening
i was just thinking of a wonderful comeback
come back to me
when we were happy
happy just staring at each others hands

hand it to me
i'm the queen of dramatics and dreams
fireworks and storms

teary face
did i make you that way?
did i forget to act my own age?

hand it to me
i'm the queen of dramatics and dreams
and plans and schemes
and wishing
you'll come back to me

you were right
it wasn't worth the time
i was right
there's a little magic in a sleepless night
come back, make it right
come back, make it right

honestly, i was just sleepy
don't take me seriously, not a word i said

you were right
it wasn't worth the time
i was right
i love you all the time
Track Name: Push The River
i push, i push the river down
the force was strong
i knew all along, i tried anyhow
i rearrange the dust, the breeze it falls on me
i make up what i wanna see

you move the trees around, you made the shade
a piece of land, a place to stay and a brand new phase
you tried to change my mind a thousand times
i push back against the night

you fell far from the tree that hid the light
was it all a lie?
i stayed down there for a long, long time
i took all of mine

you let your words come out
they push me down
i let them in, reverse and spin
i push you out
satisfy the dark, satisfy the light
i wish i could apologize

you fell far from the tree that hid the light
was it all a lie?
i stayed down there for a long, long time
i took all of mine
Track Name: Goodbye To You
goodbye to you
it was all i could do
to give you the things that i thought would be good for you

and what does it mean
to try a new thing?
when everyone here
they all have their eyes on you
they've got their eyes on you

will i become the one who stops you from all your fun?
i see what i have done, but i can't see you
and if it's all about the things that rule
the wind, the waves, i always lose

i wanna be just like you
i wanna find the things that keep me new
i wanna be just like you
sorry sorry i hurt you

goodbye to you
was it all that i could do?
to make you believe in the things that i wanted you to?
Track Name: In The Fall
in the fall that i know the best
there's a cold air it swells in my chest
it calms me down when i get upset
it follows me around

when the morning comes we try to forget
leave the yellow, take the orange and the red
i watch you claim unhappiness
it follows you around

is it only in the evening sun
that we see what's becoming of us?
it is only when you come undone
i hold all your feelings, all your thoughts?

i count the minutes, i count all your steps
i listen closely when you take a deep breath
it's been days since we've gotten any rest
it follows us around

is it only in the evening sun
that we see what's becoming of us?
it is only when you come undone
i hold all your feelings, all your thoughts?
Track Name: Some Things Last A Long Time
your picture is still on my wall, on my wall
the colors are bright, bright as ever
red is strong and blue is pure
some things last a long time

your picture is still on my wall, on my wall
i think about you often, often
i can't forget all the things that we did
some things last a long time
some things last a long time

it's funny, but it's true
and it's true, but it's not funny
time comes and goes
all the while, I still think about you
some things last a long time

your picture is still on my wall, on my wall
the colors are bright, bright as ever
the things we did i can't forget
some things last a lifetime
some things last a long time
Track Name: One, Two, Three
hold the door tomorrow night
we go out and start a fire
see the neighbor over there
she tells my fortune
no one cares

oh oh oh
i believe
oh oh oh
come to me

leave it up to me
i will never see the beach before the fog
you and I for hours
making up everyday up as we go along
and we can see for miles

pave the way when i cannot
i am always lost in thought
can't you see we both agree?
there's always something else we need

oh oh oh
one two three
oh oh oh
come to me

leave it up to me
i will never see the beach before the fog
you and I for hours
making up everyday up as we go along
leave it up to me
i will never see the beach before the fog
you and I for hours
making up everyday up as we go along
and we can see for miles
Track Name: I Owe You
i owe you the moment right before the sun is down for good
the night that we will have is only up to you
(up to you)

i owe you my fear of driving sideways by the mountains, by the sand
the time when you're living just how you wanted to
(how you wanted to)

i owe you
or was i only kidding?
i owe you
or was i only kidding?
i owe you
or was i only kidding about you?

i owe you for telling me to trust the way that times moves on
just as i was ready to give up on you
(up on you)

i owe you the minute i decided i would let you stand beside me
and i would always owe it all to you
(owe it all to you)

i owe you
or was i only kidding?
i owe you
or was i only kidding?
the sun and the sky they can never be forgiven
Track Name: Person
come be my person
come be my dark cloud
come tell me when it's time to put everything down

come be the reason i never have to say
"i wonder if love will ever find a way?"

come be the window that lets me go out
and face all the things that are holding me down

and i'll be here every single day
the best of times
the wild and the grey

come be that crazy wave
that pushes me around
come be the sign that tells me that time is running out

come be my person
come be my dark cloud
come tell me when it's time to put everything down

and i'll be here every single day
the best of times
the wild and the grey
the best of times
the wild and the grey
