lyrics

the blizzard came and went this morning
covered the sidewalk three feet through
I went outside and laid upon it
arced my arms around
and sent a signal to you

oh mighty angel
oh mighty star
bring back the people who’ve left me so hard
caught in your wing
and stuck in the sky
must be some piece of what left in the night

the christmas lights wink and sparkle
they push away night like it was noon
when all I have inside is darkness
lighting up the trees
just casts more shadows of you

oh mighty angel
oh mighty star
bring back the people who’ve left me so hard
caught in your wing
and stuck in the sky
must be some piece of what left in the night

and we were standing here together
now I don't know where you are
and I've been strong enough to miss you
but I'm weak enough to call

one more time before you leave
say you're coming back
to bring them back to me

and every mile that's between us
all the dark beneath the stars
is gonna collapse and bring you back into my arms

I didn’t used to be this frozen
I didn’t used to search the sky
the ones who fixed me all have broken
and left me walking home
counting cracks in the ice

oh mighty angel
oh mighty star
bring back the people who’ve left me so hard
caught in your wing
and stuck in the sky
must be some piece of what left in the night

about

Ben Kreader Los Angeles, California

Ben Kreader writes songs driven by the rhythm of the road and framed by the pain of the blues. His Chicago roots bring tornados, rain, and sky to his lyrics, mirroring the Midwest's meditative melancholy. Influenced by art-pop pioneers, Ben melds country-folk narratives and blues vocals with a dense forest of electronics and beats into heartbreaking songs of love and loss. ... more
