about

“Idyllwild” is an album about following songs wherever they may lead, about trusting the process to allow “what’s next” to reveal itself. Recorded in the winter of 2013 and released in 2014, “Idyllwild” earned Dyson the award “Artist of the Year” from Double J radio at the J awards in Australia and was her first album to chart in the top 100 on the CMJ radio chart in the US.

“Idyllwild is a cohesive 11 tracks of authentic, roots-rock brilliance. If 2012′s The Moment was Dyson’s career-defining reinvention, Idyllwild is the proof that she can improve upon that record’s strong foundation."(Featured Album) – Double J

Track Name: Idyllwild
Found on a wire we both caught fire
The air expands to stand beside you
The words don’t make it true
But what i do to meet you
I heed the call i answer them all

Idyllwild
Cradle these fools
As we dive down we see in the dark
Idyllwild

Like kings we fed, to the hills headed
By naked laughs, we left the path
Climbing down and down
The sunlight took our skin
We came alive the water rushing in

Idyllwild
Cradle these fools
As we dive down we see in the dark
Idyllwild

Idyllwild
Cradle these fools
As we hide what we seek in the dark
Idyllwild
Track Name: Growing Up
There’s a chance in the cracks babe
The spaces between words
Maybe we don’t have to make it
Maybe we have it made

I’m learning just how to live, darlin’
In my own skin
It does not come easy
I’ve been dreaming myself away for years

Growing up tangled
Growing up let go

All the places been lonely
All the places been blue
All the time in motion
I got to miss you

Can we go riding to see where
The floods meet and bend
I’m alive inside your story
I wanna be your pretty baby til the end

Growing up tangled
Growing up let go
Track Name: When We're Older
Oh the things we’ll joke about
They won’t be funny to anyone else
How we were pretty once and feeling tough
The whole world won’t even notice us

Yeah the surface will fade away
But we’ll find beauty in the everyday

I wanna love you when we’re older
I wanna love you when we’re older
Whatever else i do
I wanna love you when we’re older

Our bodies will slow down
We’ll try not to fall to the ground
And notice things we couldn’t see before
Find out what our hearts are capable of

We’ll see the world collapse together
And evolve into another

I wanna love you when we’re older
I wanna love you when we’re older
Whatever else i do
I wanna love you when we’re older

I see you behind the lines
You are holding me so tight
As we disappear into the earth
Leaving every thought we’ve ever had behind

I wanna love you when we’re older
I wanna love you when we’re older
Whatever else i do
I wanna love you when we’re older

We’ll swing low when we’re older
We’ll get high when we’re older
Whatever else i do
I wanna love you when we’re older
Track Name: That Sugar
Nothing you can sell me
Will keep me satisfied
Nothing i can steal
Nothing i can buy
That fix is temporary
In the madness of the mind
That sugar only lasts a while

My weakness came looking
I answered the call
A simple proposition
A win for a fall
But it’s all or nothing
It’s nothing at all
That sugar only lasts a while

Mama, won’t you tell me why that feeling won’t stay around
Lover, ever wonder why that sugar always lets you down

I worked most of my time
For something that could
Keep them wolves away from me
Or kill ‘em off for good
Now i owe more than i own
I misunderstood
That sugar only lasts a while

That sugar always lets me down
Track Name: Any 3 Chords
Any 3 chords will do
I draw a clean page with a kind of truth
It’s so easy to lose
I tighten my grip trying to hold on to it

I wrestle with this guitar
I plead for a change, a word, a part
Of tenderness, love and pain
A sweet chance to be redeemed

I only wanna play in the band
I only wanna travel the world
If only i could sing for a crowd
Who loves me better than i can
Loves me better than i can

Any 3 chords will do

In bars everywhere and nowhere
In a corner of the room a band lay it bare
Lit up like a small town ball
It’s glorious when you’re willing to fall

Dancing with this guitar
I forgot who i am and i’m making it up
I’ve seen it for myself
If i’m not here now i have nothing else

I only wanna play in the band
I only wanna travel the world
If only i could sing for a crowd
Who loves me better than i can

I only wanna be on fire
I only wanna be in tune
If only there was something,
Something to hold on to

Any 3 chords will do
Track Name: Made From The Same Clay
I see you by the roadside
Wearing your ragged guise
I see you on the street sometimes
Can’t seem to look you in the eye

You hold a sign up to the world
Asking for mercy
You reach out with your hand
I pretend i don’t see

We are made from the same clay
I could be you on a different day

All life to love must come
I’d like to be there when we are one

I dream of where you sleep
Of the raw, hard concrete
With no walls to keep you warm
Are you afraid like i would be?

You hold a sign up to the world
A mortal reminder
No one survives without
The hand of others

We are made from the same clay
I could be you on a different day

All life to love must come
I’d like to be there when we are one
Track Name: She Can't Take The World
She can’t take the world
She can’t take the world with her when she goes

One moment one night
Wanna tell her it’ll be alright
Maybe it drags or it flies
It’s just another precious moment in time

It won’t be fair, it won’t be right
But we just don’t get to decide
When it comes

She can’t take the world
She can’t take the world with her
She can’t take the world with her when she goes

Last time letting go
The last thing she can do on her own
Step into the long night
Call out a name, and leave it behind

It won’t be fair, it won’t be right
But we just don’t get to decide
When it comes

She can’t take the world
She can’t take the world with her
She can’t take the world with her when she goes

One moment, one night
She can’t tell us what it feels like
Talk is done, she gonna get real gone
No way of knowing what she’ll find

It won’t be fair, it won’t be right
But we just don’t get to decide
When it comes

She can’t take the world
She can’t take the world with her
She can’t take the world with her when she goes
Track Name: Want You There
Baby say what you’re thinking
Kick dust in the air
As long as i’m breathing
Baby i want you there

Yeah i want you there
When i’m under the gun
Lying beside me when the day is done

I’ve been wasting, killing time for way too long
Pretty baby, if you don’t mind
Gonna count us as the lucky ones
Track Name: Mama Was
You get in your car you drive across the line
The questions come but you have made up your mind
You still have the red heart you were born with
Dragging you in two directions at one time

Mama was so tender she would lose herself

Brake down, go ahead
Give us one last chance
Take back all you said
Give us one last chance

How did you decide when to start the car
When to turn the wheel and when to say goodbye
When to stop and when to keep driving
When to tell the truth and when to lie

Mama we took everything without a thought

Brake down, go ahead
Give us one last chance
Take back all you said
Give us one last chance

Mama i’ll follow a long way behind
Mama i will stay out of your sight
I hear the coming land slide
Don’t tell me everything is alright

Brake down, go ahead
Give us one last chance
Take back all you said
Give us one last chance
Track Name: Crazy Horse
Crazy horse, crazy horse
See me through the loveless winter
Keep me like a brother
Brimful of wonder
Guide me on the river fire
Guide me like a sunshine driver
Guide me like a cinder

Crazy horse, crazy horse
With your one eye gone and stumbling
I have a feeling about you
Will you let it be true
Will you carry me over the flames
Will you help me resist the vein
Will you take me down the easy way

I want to see the lights of every city that there is
I want to know the back roads and wild places no one’s been

Will you take me down the easy way

Crazy horse, crazy horse
You’ve been a fine friend to me
I’m sorry that you’re lowly
Can’t let you go slowly
I’ll carry you over the flames
I’ll help you resist the vein
I’ll take you down the easy way

I want to see the lights of every city that there is
I want to know the back roads and wild places no one’s been

Will you take me down the easy way
Track Name: Based On Your Eyes
I made a decision and i based it on your eyes
Fell into the sweetness, surrounds me in time
Loving you is easy
Loving you is so easy

I danced for the first time
That i did not feel ashamed
Took my hands to this body
Let go that ball and chain
Loving you has changed me
Loving you has changed me so

The love we make
Will carry us through the ages

I know you can’t save me
You let me be as i am
The story we both tell
Walking hand in hand
Loving you moves me
Loving you moves me so

Loving you is easy
Loving you has changed me
Loving you moves me
Loving you restores me

Loving you
