"Chandelier Lake" as written by Kianna Alarid, Neely Jenkins, Jamie L Williams, Derek Pressnall and Nicholas White....
There's a yellow tree that no one sees.
Where the water meets the land.
The grass grows tall and when the shadows fall,
the blades cast a ghostly dance.
The banks are stained with blood and rain,
where the water meets the land.
A secret there they'll never share.
A code of silence.
You would never see what's been hiding,
where the water meets the land.
Until a careful wind begins to lift
Each grain of dust and sand.
Chandelier Lake is a mysterious place
And the ghost of the woman who sleeps beneath the waves.
Chandelier lake is a mysterious place.
She's the only one who knows it's name.
A little fox gone wandering,
where the water meets the land.
Tired, lost, and hungryShe sees diamonds against the plants.
So she sat down by what she's found.
Where the water meets the land.
There exposed was clothes are bones.
A ring on a lifeless hand.
The trees and wind they hold their breath
All feigning ignorance.
And no one will even remember it,
if they are made to forget.
Chandelier Lake is a mysterious place,
and the ghost of the woman who sleeps beneath the waves.
Chandelier lake, what a mysterious place.
She's the only one who knows her grave.

    I want to say that this is my favorite Tilly & the Wall song. I'm so pumped for their upcoming record! I know what this song means to me, but I can't really articulate it now. Big help, right?

    General CommentI just noticed the title was misspelled, too. Grr. And the Daytrotter version of this song is MUCH MUCH better, I say.
