about

© ℗ 2017 Jeremy Squires

"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

Track Name: 58
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
Track Name: Water Signs
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
Track Name: Fall On Me
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
Track Name: Sleepyhead
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
Track Name: I Could Be There
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
Track Name: Night Cars
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
Track Name: Remnants
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
Track Name: Where the Devil Sings
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
Track Name: Leave-Taking
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"
Track Name: Gemini
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
Track Name: Secrets I Can Keep
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
