"Eastern Glow" as written by and Paul Arthur Jenkins Jimmy L Lavalle....
one by one
we force ourselves
we turn it on
it comes in waves

we try to find
but maybe this time
don't turn your head
it's easy to forget
how we were

once inside
we've made it here
we struggle with the lies
that never go away

what have we learned
it's the same old things
that traps us here
and never go away
we are chained

through the tides
make your way
you will find the time
a comfort inside

here I wait
in this safe place
where we were so many years ago
so many years ago

one by one
we close our eyes, and return to that place
as a thousand nights go by

one by one
we close our eyes and return to that place
and a thousand nights went by

    We close our eyes
    !!!And turn to that place!!!
    As a thousand nights went by

    Where you have the "?" is says "And turn to that place"
    Just saying just in case you didn't get the hint with my !!!

    General CommentThe violin, the drumms.. This song is magic. Can't believe people can make music this good.
    Don't know if it is about nostalgia, but it makes me feel so.

    General Commenti first heard this song on the o.c. mix 2. i'm not quite sure what it means. when it says
    "Try to find
    Maybe this time
    Don't turn your head
    it's easy to forget how we were"
    maybe it's talking about history and how it's easy to forget how things were and that we take advantage of things everyday. just a random thought.

    General CommentThis is a great band. I don't know how far the post-rock genre will go, but the original sounds these guys make are more than just catchy. They are inventive and place The Album Leaf ahead of the game. Musically, they create the perfect blend of instruments to simply chill to.

    General Commenthaha i heard it off of the OC too. but i don't remember what episode it played in the first season. and if it plays when marissa calls ryan does that mean it's in the second season too? can somebody tell me? but ya i agree that it's a great great song. i always go to musicfromtheoc.com and listen to that song.

    General CommentThe whole post-rock genre seems to be a fad right now, but i just find the music so moving and it tells stories without even saying any words. The Album Leaf creates original rythyms and instrument arrangements. I haven't heard this song on the OC, because i don't really watch that show much but i am sure that it fit the scenerio very well.
