In the summer You don’t need to run away, you know you’re safe be neath the covers I told you you need some way, you need one way or another To get through this funny phase, and out the haze It’s a bummer how some things can slip away When the sun hits and we melt in the street The daylight will shine right where I’ve wanted to see Kee p the clothes off , you look perfect to me The sheets wet with tee n sweat will be easy to clean On the corner Some thoughts of her in my bed go through my head Check out the stoners All hooked on those Grateful Deads as they all head to Arizona Let’s stay at home instead, just go to bed I’m feeling older, well maybe that’s good she said When the sun hits and we melt in the street The daylight will shine right where I’ve wanted to see Keep the clothes off , you know what I mean The sheets wet with teen sweat will be easy to clean Tell the drowning dog you don’t fuck with the sea My faith lies in the bluest eyes that’ve got something to see Keep the clothes off when we lay in the trees The leaves wet with teen sweat will be easy to clean

What do you want? More than anything that I want Is to be a foreigner, in a remote land my thoughts are drifting now You’ve got to let it go, let it go Love Love What do you want? Its getting dark now, switch to vision mode All this new flavor is making my mind buds bloom Glow with purple aura, energy that spins around and around Don’t you patronize it, I’m fee ling this, I'm loving you Love Love What do you want? This ain’t it, say love I hate it, not love What do you want?

Spirit Girl 03:26
Well the plan was to get it right but I don’t think it is tonight We are everybody at the same time, this might be the dawn of feeling Light up the room tonight Feel your touch, your skin is nice Let's be lovers like children of gods Emma knows, not me though, she don’t I dream about you Well the plan was to get it right but I don’t think it is tonight We are everybody at the same time, this might be the dawn of feeling The voices surround us, the stars do speak of loving everyone, and you are the Spirit Girl Always speaking never to you Up the steps in a dream it's nice Let's be lovers like children of gods Emma knows, not me though, she don’t I dream about you Well the plan was to get it right but I don’t think it is tonight We are everybody at the same time, this might be the dawn of feeling Can I fee l it?

Settle down I don’t mean to doubt your knowledge, but I’ve been hanging out With the cool kids at the college, I know what they’re about I don’t think that there’s a future, as long as we’re around Mother earth splits at her sutures Lately, the world’s been acting up People running around like they’re all crazy The moms think it’s the drugs that kids are doing now I think maybe we’ve reached the end of time We’ve found it, we’ve found the finish line Pardon me I don’t mean to sound impatient, but I’ve found lots of hope Through astral observations in my telescope I think it upsets the neighbors when I look through their yard And read all their morning papers Lately, the world’s been acting up People running around like they’re all crazy The moms think it’s the drugs that kids are doing now I think maybe we’ve reached the end of time We’ve found it, we’ve found the finish line

Major Magic 04:58
Our last dance, hoping for one more chance If you forget, just look through your head You’ll find me there Gray halo over the world you know But if I recall, it’s all my fault We all want the blunt of a helping hand That slaps you ‘cross your face Andy if you want, if you want Winter’s call, we didn’t need at all Getting so close, the next thing you know It’s like “oh” Your old man, he didn’t understand The weight of the walk is all that talks Coming out of a spell, awake and young We are just looking for shelter in the sun Feel of the air in our lungs Andy if you want, if you want I won’t lie , it don’t hurt to try

Nephew 03:44
Living on a leaf in the river, I fee l it sink Walking through the snow in the winter, the future is bleak Two Timing Me Friend of mine, a friend you’ll never be I will not grow I’d ask you boy now what would you do, nephew would you do her? Do her for me If I was down with everything you do would you lose him? Lose him for me Two Timing Me Friend of mine, a friend you’ll never be I will not grow Gregory, please don’t leave

I go to the barn be cause I like the people there It’s alright here On my way home, someone taps me on the shoulder: “I saw you walking in the cold, and baby I noticed that you could use a coat” So they gave me the one, off their back, you know everyone here is just like that And they are pure as snow, at the barn I go because I like the people there It’s alright here I watch those tears roll, a post conversational toll “I saw you walking in the cold, and baby I noticed that you could use a coat” So I gave you the one off my back, I’m the only here who thought of that. You are pure as snow I go to the barn because I like the people there It’s alright here

Sugar High 04:06
She don’t even know I exist She’s all in my head I get so caught up in the way she says “Jesse” I get so caught up in the way she says my name Tell your son, tell your daughter when the rain hits the water Here in Oregon, we’re bored again Like kids in the forest we’ll sing words to the chorus of this song We can go start a fire, show our folks that we’re trying to be young They can tell that we’re older from the weight on our shoulders We have fun

When I was younger I stared into the thunder What I noticed that what I saw was just a star to someone I started thinking of those nights when I could see so many suns Solar System No one is as dumb as masses joined as one With nothing but science fiction and God to back them up I started hoping for some truth, that I might find for someone I’ve done my part to help in understanding Each and everyone of us knows something Shadows in the sun lengthening as we spin ‘round From the time that I was born I searched the sky for answers I want only to enhance my brother’s tenure by relaying what I find in this solar system What I need is just a motive so I won’t come undone I’ve done my part to help in understanding Each and everyone of us knows something Shadows in the sun lengthening as we spin ‘round

Lost on Halloween, surely it’s all just a dream I don’t know what it means, but that’s just the nature of things Guess you were right, there’s some things you can’t hide It’s no surprise, that one thing on our minds In another world with a younger girl, I’m in over my head Get the coldest glance from my oldest friends, ‘cause I’m over my head Hear the country folk tell a country joke , it goes over my head Lure me to your place, I’ll show you it’s never too late It only hurts a bit, like embers from matches I’ve lit

about

Major Magic, 'official' debut album from Astoria, Oregon quintet Holiday Friends.

What we like to think of as our first 'real' album. Post-college, and more mature in that the music is finally sounding like our own : )

about

Holiday Friends Astoria, Oregon

Hailing from Astoria, Oregon Holiday Friends’ brand of pop is joyful and bright, marked by up-tempo hooks and shining melodies, by the dark growl of bass and tom, and by bright trills of synth and guitar rolling over tongue-in-cheek lyrics.
Learning gradually how to exist in an increasingly cynical landscape, they are sustained by play and the quick, precious joy that’s found between the notes
