Your Friend, Ghost – Stray

Beautiful and calm song by Your Friend, Ghost

“Stray” is the culmination of several different styles explored by Your Friend, Ghost; the piece combines guitar and live drums with soulful pianos and beat based instrumentals to birth a mystical soundscape. Fearful of the dangers of venturing too far from our origins, this track is a warning to all of us. Your Friend, Ghost invites us to consider the impact of leaving “home” while getting sucked into the same society that we all claim to wish to escape from. “Stray” tackles the concept of separation, the influence of a world that has been built to break us down and the impact we have on that same world and its environment.

LYRICS:

I want to take us to a better place
But lately just want to be comatose
You say if we stay we can play it safe
But you don't want to stay just afraid of change
You just want to love but you fear the pain
Don't care for sun, just afraid of rain
Now I can't see no more
It's got awfully dark since we started this drive
But where the light shine there always be shade
Been staring for hours but shit seems the same
Wish we could talk more and not feel ashamed
Wasting our time still got choices to make
But we're still playing this game
And I just want you close, so close

Don't stray too far away from the trees
Or the streets will take you on a little journey
We're young and we're diseased
Be long before we learn that time is temporary
It's cold so won't you change the degrees
We stay lighting fires like its February
Now I'm pleading, begging please
But you're so mean it's almost like it's legendary

Like it's legendary, like it's legendary, it's almost like it's legendary

And I don't wanna leave no, there's so many people
Don't wanna deceive, just to receive no
Rather just breathe smoke
Wind through the trees blow
Just like the seas flow
Is there really true evil
God I gotta know, there's a lot of folks
Gotta keep em all warm, it's about to snow yeah
It's hard to accept that the summer's gone
Said I'd be back here when I'm grown
Stumble in through the back door but at least I'm home
It's not safe where I've been, not sure where I've gone
I just don't want you to roam

Don't stray too far if you're gonna go without me
I bet you're leaving tonight, can see it in your eyes
Don't stray too far if you're gonna go without me
Wish I could catch up to you, but I can't even try now

Like it's legendary, like it's legendary, it's almost like it's legendary

Don't stray too far away from the trees
Or the streets will take you on a little journey
We're young and we're diseased
Be long before we learn that time is temporary
It's cold so won't you change the degrees
We stay lighting fires like its February
Now I'm pleading, begging please
But you're so mean it's almost like it's legendary

Like it's legendary, like it's legendary, it's almost like it's legendary
