In the Dark 04:19
All them lines around your eyes meant you cried dark tears when memories lurk inside your room looming darkness been running miles around your bed in the dead of night where muddy mouths speak of the past, of me now falling stars from the moonlit sky beaming down our backs when we were dancing In the dark, in the dark running to the sea, wash away these sins time has finally caught us now, caught us now Falling around those broken paths til I found my way back to you standing on the porch in the dark saw you staring out into the night with your ghost black eyes the wind was rustling, your dress was torn Moonlight, moonlight the stars once in your eyes that shined have gone away daylight, daylight the part of you that made me cry has come to stay
2.
Burn Me Up 03:52
Going down so slowly creeping in the dark where cold wind blows through the night earth and dust keep my eyes shut in the house it's so cold there only the cold wind blows through me now earth and dust keep my eyes shut all the lights faded like a fire that burned you out it burned me up all the lies, reasons everytime to fuck me up
3.
Night falls past these pines I held you to your word July pull me right back up to shatter like a glass you broke I wasn't right for you All this time I've waited here a thousand lights have disappeared all the walls are tumbling around me that were built to last through the years into the night I called for you a million times reflections of your crooked eyes are burning in the fire Up close the county pines burn bright reflecting off your smokey eyes pull me right back up to fade out like a dance so slow I watched them burn all night All this time I've waited here a thousand lights have disappeared all the walls are tumbling around me that were built to last through the years into the night I called for you a million times reflections of your crooked eyes are burning in the fire even though I loved you best tell them all I must confess until the end of all of this I will be here you won't be missed
4.
Mirrors 05:40
Boney fingers tracing other hands inside me know that eyes must close to hear the echoes a foreign voice unclear telling me things I can't hear over the sound of whispers now broken bells they play never fade I take heed the noise that they make so far way a spiders web came down I'm tangled up now through the silk I breathe no one believes fragments of the past I've scattered lifelines that can't be traced now poured salt between the teeth that chatter where shadows hide their mouths pieces of the skin I've shattered are now exposed in glass when shards seem to reflect my laughter no one can hear it now you turned my hands into sand mirrors won't show how buried beneath faces melted my house can't be found
5.
Bag of Bones 04:22
I saw the Devil's eyes out here the other night I touched a demons hand and it burned down by the crossroads that's where I sold my soul to strum a clumsy chord and grow old but it hurts sometimes I can't cleanse myself and I can't wash away these sins tonight These things hurt so much your fire touched my face there's no pure skin now I'm a bag of bones I saw the Devil's eyes out here the other night I touched a demons hand and it burned down by the crossroads that's where I sold my soul to pick an old guitar and drink wine but it screws me up what I love so much I guess I'm drinking with all of this pain tonight These things hurt so much your fire touched my face there's no pure skin now I'm a bag of bones
6.
Don't Go 02:57
Let me out of this cage inside lay with me where the darkness lies endless nights where your dreams unfold wake me up, don't let me go through the night and the smoke came fire all around the cathedral spire I heard it loud, ringing like a bell wake me up, just wake me up saw the light the flash before my eyes, nowhere to go for me to hide saw the life escape me in a dream I had of something good, it feels so bad saw the light it's come to finalize this dream is real saw the light I don't wanna go to bed tonight I don't wanna sleep I wanna die
7.
What hangs above me everynight? It seems I'm in a dream though I'm awake Why do I stay? been looking back these days where could I go? with you it isn't so why do I stay in the crossfire? Alone, I feel so far away this place could it be imaginary? Why do I stay? been looking back these days where could I go? with you it isn't so Why do I stay in the crossfire?
8.
Rainfalls been breaking through the branches all night long those house lights shimmering look just like stars shining beneath the moon, December in my mind memories of you and I where the rain falls, everywhere you are I remember when the lightning struck and the way it shined it blew the lights out I wish you would have tried to come back down I wish you would It ain't funny how we grow up so fast and then let it go man it's so fucking sad to think like that about the way it was we're like strangers now Moonlights been peeking through the windows all night long those shadows cast on my wall look just like arms moving around the room remembering my life memories of you and I where the rain falls, everywhere you are I remember when the lightning struck and the way it shined it blew the lights out I wish you would have tried to come back down I wish you would It ain't funny how we grow up so fast and then let it go man it's so fucking sad to think like that about the way it was we're like strangers now the way we shined and then burned out I wish you would have tried to come back down I wish you would oh well
9.
Black Dust 03:06
Waited so long for this to pass in silence feel the fire still burn desire for you through the ashes into these flames so slow feel the fire still burn desire for you black dust covers all your love just like a veil
10.
Let It Go 03:26
January lingers with your baby blues tales of lights and singers smiling down at you Everynight just let go you can't be so goddamned proud all of the time days go by them words that you can't take back leave my mouth just let it go January lingers like your babies do dream of snow in winter smiling back at you Everynight just let go you can't be so goddamned proud all of the time days go by them words that you can't take back leave my mouth just let it go
11.
Your trinkets are strewn all over the room oh, why must you lay under covers? even though you must leave I don't want you to go oh, why are we tired of each other? In the middle of the night like a storms angry breeze came down and blew everything now the blankets are worn and the tapestries torn and frayed Where the hours fade with the day into the night where I don't feel so sure but it does seem obscure these walls inside I feel so low there's nowhere to fall no way I can climb up these walls heaven knows it's a lie how can emptiness weigh so much? In the middle of the night no one hears me call In the middle of the night where them blankets are worn and there's holes in the house so cold Where the hours fade with the day into the night where I don't feel so sure but it does seem obscure these walls inside the loneliness still knows your name

"Jeremy Squires’ 2012 release In The Dark is folk at its most lonesome and plaintive. Acoustic guitars intertwine with Squires’ delicate and twangy vocals. Harmonica lines whisper and echo in the background. This stuff is beautiful."

Greg - Ourstage


"You can hear the feeling behind the lyrics when he sings, like every word is from the heart. The lyrics are darker, more melancholy in feeling, each word sung with conviction."

Love, Lies and Lullabies


“Folk and moodier Country music married together that makes New Bern, N.C.'s Jeremy Squires' music sound achingly real. It's singer-songwriter material both earnest and heartfelt”

Star News Online


"This album continues to take us on his emotional journey with his lyrics feeling as honest as ever. You can feel the heartbreak and sadness making it difficult not to empathise with what Jeremy is sharing which is a credit to his song writing ability."
