about

Redbird Vancouver, British Columbia

We’re all friends and lovers until it falls apart is the debut EP from Vancouver band, Redbird. The 6 song EP, produced by Shawn Cole (Yukon Blonde, Bend Sinister) pulls from a slew of sonic inspirations, from 70’s rock to Motown, with Savannah’s subtly soulful vocals hinting at alt-country influences. It all comes together in lush arrangements of guitars and vocal harmonies. ... more

Track Name: Therein Lies the Grey
In between the lighthouse and the ship that’s lost its way
The horizon and the shoreline, therein lies the grey

In between the darkness and the first of the sun’s rays
The shadows and the silence, therein lies the grey

Therein lies the grey
Therein lies the grey

In between the moments of sleeping and awake
The conscious and the daydreams, therein lies the grey

In between the right choice and living for today
The karma and the regret, therein lies the grey

Therein lies the grey
Therein lies the grey

In between this friendship and things I want to say
Track Name: West Wind
Remember when we knew the words of the woods
Slept under open skies and life was good
The falling rain washes away the pain
And lets us start again

We’ll stoke the fires of our youth beneath the setting sun
Leave the worries of the world behind
And let our hearts be young
The hard days and their nights are gone
The west wind at our back
We’re moving on

Remember when we knew the sounds of the seas
Dove in their depths and drank from their streams
The falling stars will mend our hearts
And let us start again

We’ll stoke the fires of our youth beneath the setting sun
Leave the worries of the world behind
And let our hearts be young
The hard days and their nights are gone
The west wind at our back
We’re moving on

We’re moving on
The west wind at our back
We’re moving on

We’ll stoke the fires of our youth beneath the setting sun
Leave the worries of the world behind
And let our hearts be young
The hard days and their nights are gone
The west wind at our back
We’re moving on
Track Name: No Game
My subtlety sabotages me
So please read between the lines
If you are brave enough to lay down your arms
I think you will like what you find
What you find

There’s no escape from the power of
The freedom in your eyes
I’m just another girl to fall victim to
Your brand of magic, and I don’t mind
No I don’t mind

Oh my pride won’t let me hunt you down
And I won’t be seen as prey
So we’ll have to meet
Somewhere in between
In a land that has no game

We’re all searching for a moment
That reminds us we’re alive
I will let you cut my heart open wide
If you can handle what’s inside
What’s inside

Oh my pride won’t let me hunt you down
And I won’t be seen as prey
So we’ll have to meet
Somewhere in between
In a land that has no game

I know I should know better but I feel no fear
You know that I know better but I’m still right here

My subtlety sabotages me
So please read between the lines

Oh my pride won’t let me hunt you down
And I won’t be seen as prey
So we’ll have to meet
Somewhere in between
In a land that has no game
Track Name: Some Birds
Some birds leave, and some return
Some birds stick around through it all

Some hide away, wait for the sun to light the day
Some fear the dark

Some words are kind, and some plant seeds into the mind
To grow ideas that never were

Some bonds break, while some grow strong
Some test the branches before stepping out

And some hearts can’t stand the cold
Some hearts don’t know how to weather a storm, no
And some hearts can’t stand the cold
Some hearts don’t know how to weather a storm
And some tough it out

Some winters last, frozen down to the core
Until the spring unfolds

And some ice melts, to reveal the damage done
But some things are never quite the same

And some hearts can’t stand the cold
Some hearts don’t know how to weather a storm, no
And some hearts can’t stand the cold
Some hearts don’t know how to weather a storm
And some tough it out

Some birds leave, and some return
Some birds stick around through it all
Track Name: In the Hands of Ghosts
My happiness lives in the hands of ghosts
And whisps of my imagination
They keep me company, they keep me amused
They keep my mind from the life that it lives in

Play along and you’ll be set free
Don’t stop to question, just let it be

Oh there’s ghosts that haunt the halls in my mind
And the deeper I search, the harder it is to find light again
So I close my eyes and say you’re not real
But my doubts creep in and it’s impossible to feel fine again

My heart lives in a dream of words
That may or may not have been spoken
I can’t bring myself to tell it the truth
Cause it’ll crash hard when it’s woken

Who’d of thought it would be so hard
To live a life without a fear of the dark

Oh there’s ghosts that haunt the halls in my mind
And the deeper I search, the harder it is to find light again
So I close my eyes and say you’re not real
But my doubts creep in and it’s impossible to feel fine again

My dreams hang on a very thin thread
It’s all that keeps me together
Each night I pray that it will hold strong
And give me some hope for the future

Play along and you’ll be set free
Don’t stop to question, just let it be

Oh there’s ghosts that haunt the halls in my mind
And the deeper I search, the harder it is to find light again
So I close my eyes and say you’re not real
But my doubts creep in and it’s impossible to feel fine again
Track Name: Oh Please My Heart
Lived my life a dreamer
In scenes that fade by dawn
The flickers of hope that linger
Start to sting as the day rolls on

Lived my life a thinker
Knowing right from wrong
I sacrificed desire
And missed out on playing along

Oh please my heart don’t turn to stone
Love is the only way I’ve known
And no one wants to be alone
Please my heart don’t let him make you cold
We’ll find our strength, or so I’ve been told

Lived my life afraid
And uncertain in my shoes
Worrying through the choices
Until there is nothing to choose

Oh please my heart don’t turn to stone
Love is the only way I’ve known
And no one wants to be alone
Please my heart don’t let him make you cold
We’ll find our strength, or so I’ve been told

So I drift
And I float
And I search
For reasons to hope
