about

Love, loss, redemption and hope feature on this, the seventh release by Deerheart. Ranging from the folk-rock of opener "Someone Will Find You" to the grungy Americana of album closer "Marietta", with forays into 60's pop, R&B, rockabilly and flat out rockers in-between, "Everything Matters" finds Deerheart at his most musically eclectic and lyrically incisive.

Track Name: Someone Will Find You
She said she hates not knowing
She feels she's not growing
She's always in pain

She said a southern wind beckons
And that's what she reckons
She needs to sustain

She said you'll land on your feet
Someone will find you
If that's what you need
She said the memories were sweet
Someone will find you
Someone will find...

She said the things that were precious
Those intimate treasures
Will always remain

She said we've so long pretended
Not what we intended
Still no one's to blame

She said they were memories of youth
Someone will find you
Will vanquish your blues
She said it's an immutable truth
That someone will find you
Someone will find...

She said we all suffer loss
Someone will find you
It's a matter of course
She said you still taste of divorce
Still someone will find you
Someone will find...
Someone will find you
Someone will find...
Someone will find you
Someone will find... you

She said... she said...
Track Name: Stay True
Hope is on the sidewalk standing in the snow
Waiting for the bus, it feels like all she's ever known
She'll make her three connections
It'll take her most the day

Ronnie will be waiting for her in his prison greens
Another Sunday spent among the dopers and the queens
Trying to suss out why it is
Things never go their way

Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo
She will do
Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo
To stay true
Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo

She was such a smart girl, she was mama's pride and joy
She was such a pretty girl, pursued by every boy
Then Ronnie came and Ronnie saw
And Ronnie was so sweet
And Ronnie knew just what to say to sweep her off her feet

Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo
She will do
Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo
To stay true
Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo

Her future feels a million miles away
Her dreams feel like a million miles away
Oh, happy feels a million miles away

She knows he's not a bad kid, he's just misunderstood
She just wants him to straighten out, she knows he's really good
He's gotta get his shit together 'coz the baby's due in June
And twenty's too damn young for your life to be a ruin

Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo
She will do
Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo
To stay true
Oo-oo-oo-oo
Oo-oo-oo-oo

Oo-oo-oo-oo...
Track Name: Sweetheart
Let me call you sweetheart
Try to understand
When I call you sweetheart
I feel as if I can
See my future clearly just over the rise
Shining right there in your pretty eyes

When I call you sweetheart
And I take your hand
I feel your beating sweetheart
You tell me I'm your man
Oh everything I've dreamed of
Everything I do
Everything's for sweetheart, just for you

Some days will be joyful
Some be streaked with tears
But I'll be right here across the many years

Won't you call me sweetheart
It goes right to my head
When you call me sweetheart
Lying in our bed
May our days be filled with laughter
Our nights be filled with song
For with you you, sweetheart, is where I belong
Yes, with you, sweetheart, is where I belong
Track Name: Find A Way
In technicolor majesty you came into my monochrome world
A living, breathing rhapsody
Wrapped inside my fantasy girl
But my hopes and dreamed ripped at the seams
That tempest came and carried you away
Oh how my heart screamed
And oh how your lonely heart strayed

Gonna find a way to satisfy you
Every day I'll keep yo safe and warm
Gonna find a way, a way into your heart

Once upon a time you found your perfect man
And gave him things you'd never given me
And together you saw worlds that I will never see
But every man you've ever loved has let you down
And trust become a lost commodity
But babydoll, I swear no one has loved you like I will

Gonna find a way to satisfy you
Every day I'll keep yo safe and warm
Gonna find a way, a way into your heart

Gonna find a way...
Gonna find a way...
Gonna find a way, a way into your heart

Gonna find a way to satisfy you
Every day I'll keep yo safe and warm
Gonna find a way, a way into your heart

Gonna find a way to satisfy you
Every day I'll keep yo safe and warm
Gonna find a way, a way into your heart

Gonna find a way...
Gonna find a way...
Gonna find a way, a way into your heart
Track Name: Kiss Me
Sunrise breezes whisper, I hear your name
Sunset rainbows coursing through your hair and
All my memories are touched by the things you've done and
For so long now I have dreamed you in my heart so

Kiss me like you're always gonna love me
Kiss me all night long

Moonlit hours, I get buzzed on your taste and
My hand dances with your angel face and
I swoon every time I feel you coming
When you need me call my name and I'll come running

Kiss me like you're always gonna love me
Kiss me all night long
Kiss me like you're never gonna leave me
Kiss me like you've never, never kissed me before

I melt every time I lay beside you
I melt every time I'm safe inside you

Kiss me like you're always gonna love me
Kiss me all night long
Kiss me like you're never gonna leave me
Kiss me like you're never, never gonna kiss me again
Never gonna kiss me again
Never gonna kiss me again
...again
Track Name: Broken
She's the wind in the leaves
The rain on the street
She may come but she'll leave
A stain on my sheets

And I'm broken
She's broken
We're broken

She's the blood on my tongue
The steady ring in my ear
She could stay but she'll run
Snd say she longs to be here

And I'm broken
She's broken
We're broken
We're broken

She's the dream that I can't shake
She's the hope that will not fade
She's the lust I cannot sate
She's my terminal fate

She's the Spring in the air
Summer's shimmering heat
She's cut and mailed me her hair
And keeps it trimmed very neat

And I'm broken
She's broken
We're broken
We're broken

She's the dream that I can't shake
She's the hope that will not fade
She's the lust I cannot sate
My terminal fate

She's the dream that I can't shake
She's the hope that will not fade
She's the lust I cannot sate
She's my terminal fate
Track Name: The Desultory Boy
He was going through the motions
Bereft of expectation or belief
He had no need for supervision
His head filled with diversions, sweet and brief

Woah, and though he thought he knew it all
When he saw that different girl he realized
His ignorance, it knew no bounds
His thesis built on shaky ground
For in those eyes

He saw light, he saw love
He saw countless possibilities he had only dared dream of
'Til the moment that she stepped into the life
Of the desultory boy

He found himself so far from home
Decided it was time to start anew
But comfort's short-lived, cold as stone
When you're waking up in unfamiliar rooms

No there's nothing quite as empty as
The loveless kiss that desperate strangers share
He kept count of all the broken hearts
Left in the wake of his despair

Still he saw light, he saw love
He saw countless possibilities he had only dared dream of
'Til the moment that she stepped into the life
Of the desultory boy

We dream the dream of endless love
But grow lazy and complacent in its glow
And upon our waking we discover so many worlds
That we have yet to know

Oh we seek light, we seek love
We seek countless possibilities we only dare dream of
'Til the moment we find we are not alone
Like the desultory boy

Oh he found light, he found love
He found countless possibilities that he'd only dared dream of
'Til the moment that she stepped into the life
Of the desultory boy
Track Name: Suzanne
Met a girl and her name was Suzanne
She was dancing by the stage, she never listened to the bands
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
Dark eyes, blonde hair,l red lips
Pieces of the last boy hanging from her fingertips
She could be my Baby Blue

Kissed a girl, said her name was Suzanne
I took her home, she said you better have a plan
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
I bought her clothes, I bought her drugs, I bought her flowers
When we're not together every minute's like an hour
And it's all that I can do

I wanna be with you
I wanna be with you
And do the things you do

I wanna be with you
I wanna be with you
And do the things you do

Wanted a girl, yeah her name was Suzanne
Love wasn't something she could ever understand
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
Fuck this syndrome, ain't got no Stockholm's
I'm gonna keep her picture hanging in my bedroom
Such a pretty Baby Blue

I wanna be with you
I wanna be with you
Do the things you do

I wanna be with you
I wanna be with you
Do the things you do, do, do
Track Name: The Stars Are Not Falling
Oh don't tell me it's late
Or talk of expiration dates
We have come too far
To be resigning

The stars are not falling
They're aligning

Don't tell me our fate is sealed
In time all will be revealed
This is a moment
That is defining

The stars are not falling
They're aligning

If we get the hard part out of the way
I know we'll live to love another day
There can be no breaking, only bending
On the road to a happy ending


The stars are not falling
They're aligning

If we get the hard part out of the way
I know we'll live to love another day
There can be no breaking, only bending
On the road to a happy ending

We've been here before
We'll make it through once more
This is not new ground
That we are mining

The stars are not falling
They're not falling
The stars are not falling
They're aligning
They're aligning
They're aligning
Track Name: All The Tears
All the tears we cried
All the nights we tried
All we put aside

All that made you ache
All that made you break
All we had at stake

I don't wanna go
Please don't say it's so
I don't wanna know
See if I go away
There will come a day
We've nothing left to say

All the tears we cried
All the nights we tried
All we put aside

All this love I've sown
Like nothing I have know
Yet nothing has there grown

The heart craved what it craved
Now the broken road is paved
And nothing there is saved

All the tears we cried
All the nights we tried
All we put aside

All the tears we cried
Now all those tears have dried
Track Name: Everything Matters
She told me, dude
Everything matters
You can laugh, you can brood
Everything matters
To the fierce and the meek, the strong and the weak
Everything matters, everything matters
The things that we say
Everything matters
Each hold their own weight
Everything matters
What you put in your body, what you put in your mind
Everything matters, everything matters

She conjured me
Thought the Sparks I was seen
In a raspberry dress, her hair all a mess
Straight out of my dreams
She whispered my name
And I've not been the same
Took me to her, she opened my head
And man it's spinning still, my head's spinning

She took me to school
Everything matters
Said throw out the rules
Everything matters
You feel what you feel, yes it's always right now
Everything matters, everything matters
She said when you love
Everything matters
You've gotta love hard
Everything matters
What you do with your body, what you do with your mind
Everything matters, everything matters

She showed me her fall
Yeah she took down her walls
From a distant place I could not see her face
Yet I heard her call
The lady's so fine
She's so cool, she's so kind
And I don't understand what she sees in this man
Still my head's spinning now, my head's spinning

She said we're blessed
Everything matters
Hey, we're doing our best
Everything matters
If you can learn not to fear the silence you hear
Everything matters, everything matters
She things that we touch
Everything matters
Are touched for all time
Everything matters
What you do to your body, what you do to your mind
Everything matters, everything matters

Tell me you so more than like me
Tell me you so more than like me
Tell me you so, tell me so
Coz everything matters, everything matters
Tell me you so wanna love me
Tell me you so wanna love me
Tell me you so, tell me you so
Coz everything matters, everything matters

Everything matters, everything matters

She told me, dude
Everything matters
You can laugh, you can brood
Everything matters
But to the fierce and the meek, the strong and the weak
Everything matters, everything matters
She said when you love
Everything matters
Oh, you've gotta love hard
Everything matters
What you with your body, what you do with your mind
Everything matters, everything matters

Tell me you so more than like me
Tell me you so more than like me
Tell me you so, tell me so
Coz everything matters, everything matters
Tell me you so wanna love me
Tell me you so wanna love me
Tell me you so, tell me you so
Coz everything matters, everything matters
Track Name: Marietta
Let me sleep in your loft
Have me play on your porch
Show me life as it can be
Walk me though your garden
We will feed the chickens
Let me see the life you see

Bring me down to Marietta
I will buy you vintage clothes
Hold my love in Marietta
And don't you let me go

Track Name: Hometown Girl
She knows these streets I've walked alone
And when I call her on the telephone
Her number's still the same
She don't go in much for technology
She's got an old-school philosophy
Regarding user names

From K through 12 we shared the halls
Of every school, these same brick walls
And I was dreaming of her even 'fore I'd seen her face
We marched in all the same parades
Across the tracks and down Broadway
Her hair done up in pigtails and lace

One minute I;m on the monkey bars
Then I'm picking her up in my daddy's car
And, Lord, my life has never been the same, yeah

She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl

She tells me what I need to hear
And I trust her with my deepest fears
And she's never, she's nerve steered my wrong
My happiness rests in her hands
You see I only wanna be her man
And I've waited, I've waited so long, hey

She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl

In here eyes I see the years
All the laughter, all the tears
Mr. Parker said don't bother with 'em, no
But I'm all in

She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl

She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right
My hometown girl
She's gonna treat me right
She's gonna treat me right

My hometown girl
My hometown girl
My hometown girl
My hometown girl
