MayaFlyer

BandPopAdult Contemporary

MayaFlyer's sound is psychorootsafolkadelic - imagine Led Zeppelin marrying Heart, having an affair with Mahavishnu, and then giving birth. Combine that with indie rock pragmaticism and you've got MayaFlyer's slightly dysfuntional family.

Biography

Minneapolis based MayaFlyer began when David Carnes and Lisa Hirst met in music school. The duo performed at coffeehouses and bars while building their repertoire of original music.

In late 2003 the band's sound crystallized when multi-instrumentalist, audio geek and long-time musical conspirator Sean Broderick joined the duo.

The band's sound has evolved over the years - into acoustoelectronic - mixing our passion for software, computers and electronica with our classical music training.

Lyrics

Odysseus

Written By: David Carnes

Odysseus where have you been
I seem to fall about and in and out of sin
I’ve got a photograph of you and me
And we’re in, we’re in, we’re in love

Set me down and let me walk away
I’ve got a hundred thousand things I’d like to say
They’re rolling in like ocean waves
And we’re in, we’re in, we’re in love

Odysseus how did you know
The story’s always better than the show
The end is sad but still I’ll go though
We’re in, we’re in, we’re in love
Oh, we’re in, we’re in, we’re in love

The Day After Today

Written By: David Carnes

Here’s a story about my friend Sadie
She and Amanda went down to the lake
And they smoked it up and laughed until it hurt
And then they met their boyfriends in the band

Sadie
She kept looking around
Found her man in the arms of another girl
And then she fell down to the ground

Hey it all comes down to this
A way to lose your way
Hey it all comes down to this
The day after today

Next day Sadie went out and got a gun
Said I’m gonna make that son of a bitch pay
So she followed him to work and then the day after
Put a bullet in his brain

Hey it all comes down to this
A way to lose your way
Hey it all comes down to this
The day after today

And when the shooting was over
And they carried her away
They said she never cried a tear for him
The day after today

Hey it all comes down to this
A way to lose your way
Hey it all comes down to this
The day after today

Revoevolution

Written By: David Carnes & Lisa Hirst

My mother takes me away
And my father takes me far from home
To a land where angels roam
Antelopes and Cadillacs play

Revoevolution

Astounding lights and flashes fly
Upon my eyes when I try to sleep
The ways of war and wails of men
Keep me from the peace I seek

Revoevolution

Friend In Need

Written By: David Carnes

Only seein what you want to see
Don't you know
A pretty girl is a fantasy
And you got
A special friend with a benefit
and you know a
A big whale going down again

I have a friend in need
His name is Jesus
Everyone is working for him
He’s so fine everyone wants to love him
It feels so good

I have a friend in need
I have a friend in need
It feels so good

I have a friend in need
He comes at night
Right to my side
And he’s filling me up
Filling my cup he never starts
Until it’s over

Happiness

I have a friend in need
I have a friend in need
It feels so good
I have a friend in need
It feels so good

Only seein what you want to see
Don't you know
A pretty girl is a fantasy
And you got
A special friend with a benefit
and you know a
A big whale going down again

Sometimes I hesitate
To let him in
Is it a sin to play with the Gods

I have a friend in need
I have a friend in need
It feels so good
I have a friend in need
I have a friend in need
It feels so good
It feels so nice
It feels so good
