ABOUT MICAIAH
Micaiah is an emerging artist of Alternative/Indie/Pop/Folk leanings. He is hot off recording his debut album "The Frost" with acclaimed producer Marty Brown (Clare Bowditch, Art of Fighting), which will be released in March 2010. "The Frost" charts some of life's darker waters, telling tales of loss, disappointment, the end of love, temptation, fear, and unmet expectation. Yet despite the darkness the album is guided by an undercurrent of hope and redemption.

Micaiah plays both solo and with a 3 piece band.

Lyrics

Needles

Written By: Micaiah

You're the needle in my eye
You're the strange new drug i try
You're a castle built on high
I can't scale this love

You're a fragment of the truth
You're the leaking in my roof
You're an undiscovered proof
I can't explain this love

But if I speak I know they'll see
So I done held my tongue and watched it bleed
And I done killed that part of me
They'll never see that part of me

You're the beauty in my head
You're the beast under my bed
You're the danger in the red
I can't defend this love

But if I speak I know they'll see
So I done held my tears and cut it deep
And I done killed that part of me
They'll never see that part of me

You're the only thing I want
You're the gold I'll never hold
You're the book I'll never know
I can never taste your love
I can never taste your love

But if I speak I know they'll see
So I done held my tongue and watched it bleed
And I done killed that part of me
How I done pulled and turned
And scratched and burned
And I done buried it so deep
They'll never see that part of me

Sometimes

Written By: Micaiah

Sometimes when the night won't end
and these knees they just refuse to bend
won't you take me back take me in again

Sometimes when the day is through
and the shadows creep across my room
then I close my eyes and think of you

When you say you're coming back
Though I know you can't mean that
Like a distant song I almost know I hear you say
Though the night is long it's broken by the day

Sometimes when I'm in a crowd
and my feet can barely touch the ground
and my empty heart how it gets blown around

Sometimes when the night won't end
and these knees they just refuse to bend
I will think of you and I will say this prayer

When you say you're coming back
Though I know you just can't mean that
Like a distant song I almost know I hear you say
Though the night is long it's broken by the day
