God, I wish I could talk to you sometimes not that you will ever know that it's a lonely life if the walls could speak, I wonder to myself what would they say? But I know you cannot hear me now when you are so far away at the speed of sound and I'm always reminded everything is on it's way to another place

It's getting dark on this day of reckoning if I could speak, I'd talk to you again these racing thoughts, they're running in circles up and down the halls, into this empty room My love for you is like an avalanche you wait beneath to pull back the blanket covering your heart, protecting you from darkness a cluster fuck of everything you ever kept but wanted I don't wanna cry here waiting anymore just to say goodbye and never let you go in the waiting room, where I will wait for you as long as it takes in life or the curtain calls... it's time My love for you is like an avalanche you wait beneath to pull back the blanket covering your heart, protecting you from darkness a cluster fuck of everything you ever kept but wanted

There's an eerie glow when the TV casts a light through the haunted house When I lie awake at night and I think about too many things I wish I could call you when my mind is stirring Lately you've been tempting fate cover up your hands and look away they're coming to say goodbye I wish I could let you in but your heart is filled with fading lights In this silent room many patterns on my walls seem to move around into the cracks where spiders crawl Sometimes I wish you were still in the room Another chapter turns and my heart is heavy Lately you've been tempting fate cover up your hands and look away it does get dark sometimes I wish I could let you in but your heart is filled with fading lights

Your Winter snow globe showed glitter covering your eyelids Hands flickering, shaking everything up You got your "everything bag" packed and you're running away You've been "sailing" through my thoughts Was this what you wanted? It's never what it seems when your dreams come true You got your "everything bag" packed and you're leaving soon
5.
Take my hand and lets talk Say whatever you want Seems I've been under your spell Now my eyelids are heavy Wish I had famous last words But now nobody knows Did my best Oh Lord, I get lost Said my prayers underwater
6.
Been dodging night cars as they pass through the room casting light on my walls they passively move It's a trial and tribulation in this worn out heart It's a tired revelation when you come apart Been dodging night cars they dare you to move whatever it was... when it came to soon It's a trial and tribulation in this worn out heart It's a tired revelation when you come apart Been dodging them stars that shoot past the moon wherever you are... they dared me to move your light isn't lost... you let yourself go when are you gonna learn to leave it behind? It's a trial and tribulation in this worn out heart It's a tired revelation when you come apart

Children play where you lay near a permanent stain on the wall hangs a cross that don't keep all your demons away There's a page that you fold in the bible you hold that you clutch to your chest when you call me faithless because I don't believe They're swarming around our wasp nest now it's a strangers house we've both been dying to get out
8.
Your wicked tongue is so quiet now / Your silence says so much to me Your poison mouth with a stinger stuck / Inside you're like a wasp nest In dustily calm a once fiery witch / I know how you will die tonight Inside these walls where no one ever calls / Where nothing ever grows Sour tastes still fill these hours Hear footsteps clack, clack and creak through the floors where no one sees me inside / Goddamn I'm alive in this Hell all through the night Hear footsteps clack, clack and creak where the Devil sings Your wicked tongue is so quiet now / Your suffering said so much to me Your poisoned mouth with a stinger stuck / Inside you're a fuckin' wasp nest An evening passed the shadow you once cast / I know how you will die tonight Inside these walls where no one ever calls / Where nothing ever grows Sour tastes still fill these hours Hear footsteps clack, clack and creak through the floor where no one sees me inside / Goddamn I'm alive / Hear the sounds all through the night / Hear footsteps clack, clack and creak where the Devil sees me scream / He's inside / Goddamn, I'm alive in this house all through the night / Hear footsteps clack, clack and creak where the Devil sings

Out of my head, out of my life I'm at the other end of a one way sign It's spinning 'round and 'round like a carousel So... You can still get lost inside yourself I see your eyes in the neon lights and the way you fucked me up that night Well I knew you'd leave right from the start But when it comes around it still breaks your heart In the lilac shadows you hide the scent of magnolia Behind the way of a dark violet stream You said "open to carry me away"
10.
03:30
She cusses with a sailor's mouth washed upon a shore of wishes but the constellations are still falling All the things in your life that you love come back to you every now and then to surround you every night as waltz through your dreams somehow they pull at your heart strings When I'm falling down... Like I'm falling now.... I've been falling... But this time I ain't getting back up We're burning through the atmosphere and I've grown tired of the fall and how you make it hurt so much when I'm falling All the love in your life that you lost comes back to you every now and then to surround you every night as they dance through your dreams somehow they pull at your heart strings All the lies in your life that you told come back to you every now and then to surround you in the light and then take what they want somehow they see what I don't When I'm falling down... Like I'm falling now.. I've been falling... But this time I ain't getting back up
11.
I don't want to let you go and I don't want to watch you stumble I don't wanna talk about it anymore All this wasted time, waiting for tomorrow There are secrets I can keep All my life, I've been folding All these hands, I've been holding I don't want to watch you fall and I don't want to see you go There are many ways to break All this wasted time, waiting for some answer There are secrets I can hide All my life, I've been folding All these hands, I've been holding

about

© ℗ 2017 Jeremy Squires

Digital Download of Collapse includes a bonus video of “Secrets I Can Keep”.

"The album, titled Collapse, the most personal and quietly devastating record Squires has ever made."
- Various Small Flames

"Lonely, quiet acoustic folk, of an exceptionally high caliber."
- The Monday Morning Tape

"The album is quietly mesmerizing and beautifully shattering."
- One Chord to Another

"The softness that permeates Squires' music is more of a gut punch than any banger or dirge. It's as if Squires has already felt those and can only, at last, speak his heart now that he's exhausted all other emotions." - No Depression

"I can’t seem to get enough of his Americana sound that is haunting, thought-provoking and is filled with so much emotion." - My Random Jukebox

"'Remnants‘, a single taken from his latest album ‘Collapse‘. Saturated with religious simile (a throwback to Squires’ grandmother’s devout Christianity), the track features simple slide guitar with piercing harmonics lending support to Squires’ southern drawl. Sombre and reverential, this track is perfect listening for any dreary day."
- Killing Moon
