I dreamt my life away I never told Can you tell me how the broke can still break? Can you fix me up? Evidence of us is scattered all around Our memories lay here Buried in snow Where do I go? With these ghost eyes I can see everything
2.
Can't see the end with yesterday's eyes but when you came through that door your breath all heavy and slow... I knew what you were and what you came for Go Can't find the truth in a house full of lies no glare from your vacant eyes no kiss before I go... Falling backwards through earth and dirt falling slowly please don't let me... Go

I'll never tell the secrets in this hell where no voices disappear echoes / echoes through your mind like noise Turn around through windows dreams drift out where no eyes would ever stare let go / let go of those things you harbor Let go His lonely sky to watch them clouds collide into magic majesty to let go / to let go of the weight he carried Let go Lost in closets / closed off / forgotten all those words that turned rotten all the while / all the time it was festering inside

I wish you could hear me now the whispers in the walls echo through this house when all of the colors inside of your head go spinning 'round I'm on a broken ferris wheel, dangling down out of control, out of my mind I'm bound to fall straight to the ground I wish you could see me now I'm hidden by a veil somehow all of the colors inside of your head go spinning around on a collision course with flames who's pulling me out? out of control, out of my mind I'm bound to burn, burn, burn it down You don't know what it's like invisible, inside yourself in a prison that you built no one can see been oblivious to memories that I miss so much they meant everything, you meant everything to me

He'd been dragging his shadow no apparition a voice disembodied an old August moon Out of the darkest sky into the holler he went out of the swell he left to ride that vessel in I heard his violent croon, I felt the impending doom out of the distance to fall back into his room An old man with sad eyes a bad condition his soul left his body to float towards the moon Into the darkest night out of the holler he went out of the bed he slept in I heard his violent croon, I felt the impending doom out of the distance he cried out unto the moon... Dust to dust...

Through the whispers I walk / through you in this house full of walls where nobody smiles and nobody calls when you're out of time It gets cold when nobodys home been dancin' 'round subjects and life for too long been caught in the past, still stuck in between a goodnight and a slumberless sleep In the shadows they call to me they're gonna take me back home to the city of souls where nobody cries when you're out of time It gets cold when nobodys home been dancin' 'round subjects and life for too long been caught in the past, still stuck in between a goodnight and a slumberless sleep A goodnight and a slumberless sleep

Don't let the dark inside you eat you up don't let me down this time I'd follow you with every step to hurry through the forks without regrets Without regrets Need a protection spell to keep the world away been in your hiding place so long to forget old ghosts And I don't wanna play this game of fools I just don't understand it you're playing with my mind and now my heart is suffocating on these lies On these lies Need a protection spell to keep the world away been in your hiding place so long to forget old ghosts that I will resurrect ...them all
8.
The shade that you hide makes you wary with blankets you cover the stars and you wonder why it's so scary but I ain't afraid of the dark When all of them ashes now scatter a trail of the past in the soot and what I had done didn't matter when all of the pain that it took... Is imaginary now
9.
03:14
You've been led astray it wasn't time to send someone away so long ago well you're lonely now and been gathering sticks from the ground to build a nest Been dangling down my little bird in a rattling cage you're safe for now moving 'round this sad landscape you dreamt your flight swirling around that moonlit sky contrails passed by These senseless delusions when it all comes down you recycle your minds confusion every trifle became all this time you've been chasing those dreams you can't catch Been dangling down my little bird in a rattling cage you're safe for now moving 'round this sad landscape you dreamt your flight swirling around that moonlit sky contrails passed by
10.
Hear your whispers now through ghostly talk into your room I walk like an awkward dance, two spin around faster than a freight train now Like a subtle flame snuck into this place you stole my heart like a thief in the night you're a burning fire running through my veins you stole my heart like a thief in the night In the night From the spider webs I'll slowly crawl to your transparent arms and I won't slow down, never make a sound we're whispers in the darkness now Like a subtle flame snuck into this place you stole my heart like a thief in the night you're a burning fire running through my veins you stole my heart like a thief in the night In the night Like a subtle flame snuck into this place you stole my heart like a thief in the night you're a burning fire running through my veins you stole my heart like a thief in the night You stole my heart like a thief in the night

Through the cobwebs, 'round my head this old house wreaks of death is there fire or pearly gates... am I doomed to repeat... Cotton fields down by the lot where he lays with no kin beneath a willow tree hear his croons echo awhile through the pines nobody goes there Through the cobwebs I see him with one eye piercing black by the stairwell hear the sound ringin' forevermore Cotton fields down by the lot where he lays with no kin beneath a willow tree hear his croons echo awhile through the pines nobody goes there
12.
Distant sky when you hide behind the quiet air it makes me nervous awake the night makes moves through your eyes phantom like ghost tonight you sleep alone words written on your face against the lines I traced oh, tonight I'm better off Curtains drawn day be gone from the place where monsters crawl out from underneath my bed with all the things replaced mostly gone, their pigment washed away it washed away It's a lonely life been movin' like the fog on water light flickers on night sank inside me tuggin' on the bone to curse me like I was It's a lonely life been movin' like the fog on water light flickers on you sank inside me tuggin' on the bone to curse me like I was

Since the release of his first album, A Place To Hide, in January 2012, Jeremy Squires has become synonomous with thought-provoking lyrics and melancholic music. His candid approach to songwriting welcomes his listeners to step inside his dark and stunning world providing comfort and solace to other weary souls. Jeremy’s rare ability to emotionally open up and sing about his struggles with his demons and fears has allowed him to open up creatively giving him more confidence to experiment more on his new album, When Will You Go....

Originally written and recorded in early 2013, Jeremy produced When Will You Go... in his North Carolina home. Released in November 2013, he intended to use the album to explore themes of death and fear of losing loved ones, but it eventually became much more taking on a whole new and personal meaning. Playing banjo, guitar, piano, and resonator guitar, Jeremy enlisted indie songstress Anna-Lynne Williams (Lotte Kestner, Trespassers William) to sing background vocals as well as multi-instrumentalist Shane Leonard (Kalispell, Field Report) to play fiddle, bass, organ, and percussion. The result, a brilliantly sparse album with darker, more melodic songs like “I Am Still Here”, “Echoes”, and “Like a Thief in the Night”. Mid-tempo tracks like “Oblivious” and “The Nest”, although complicated and dismal they provide a lasting impression. Continuing the themes of When Will You Go... is “J.L.P” which is about the loss of both Jeremy’s father and grandfather.

When Will You Go... says a lot about Jeremy Squires as a person and an artist. He may not write the happiest of songs, but what he does write is absolutely gorgeous and unearthly. And, just to be clear, even though Jeremy’s songs are a little on the gloomy side, that doesn’t exactly make him a dismal person. It just shows that he has creatively fought his way through sickness and struggles making him a better human, musician, and artist who continues to use his personal battle to grow and produce honest and spectacular albums. He demonstrates that beauty and creativity can and does rise from the ashes of fear and death.


"This is one of the finest albums released this year and one worth every minute of your time and attention." - Wake the Deaf


"Jeremy Squires lays some dark and honest shit out there on this album. That takes courage and brutal openness. It also isn’t an easy feat. I have come to love this album. I think it should be up there with some of the best albums released this year. While that may be a bold statement, this album is every bit as bold as though words. Bank on it."
- Fuck Yeah Alt Country Boys


"When I first heard the whole album it struck me how talented this artist truly is as he consistently writes great music that continues to feel so honest. His technique for crafting lyrics is a lesson for other songwriters out there." -- My Random Jukebox


“There’s something in his music that really finds the core of my heart. The songs might not always be filled with happy thoughts, but somehow I find his music comfortable and beautiful.” -- One Chord To Another


"Squires' songs often focus on his struggles with maintaining his mental health, so there's no emotional wishy-washiness here. But it's not just Squires' passion. Squires and his backup band are genius at taking what ought to be simple songs and tossing in a strange guitar riff or ear-catching harmonies. The result is beautiful and a little unsettling. It's the kind of music those Nashville hacks would give their strumming hands to write just once." -- Adobe and Teardrops


"With the word “Salvation” tattooed knuckle-to-knuckle on his picking hand, every strum of every chord serves as a permanent reminder there’s a brighter future. When Will You Go… is a brave story for the right place and the right time—a fitting accompaniment to a night of self-reflection and whiskey on the rocks." - HR - The Blue Indian


"Living amongst the ghosts and whispers that echo from the album’s shadows, Squires subtly details lives discarded (“Gleaming”), mountain folk tales (“Dust to Dust”) and family deaths (“J.L.P.”), always arm’s reach away from the nightmares that haunt his world." - Bucket Full of Nails
