    New song from the amazing Dallas Green --> Of Space and Time: http://soundcloud.com/cityandcolour/of-space-and-time

    I've listened to this 5-6 times now and each time I love it more. Check it out!

    Lyrics

    There's a murder of crows,
    Flying high overhead,
    On this desolate road,
    Will I tend to forget.

    About you and I,
    And our fight to survive,
    Through this thunderous life,
    When we're not side-by-side

    I'm roaming through the hills all alone,
    I'm trying to find my direction home,
    A question of space, a matter of time,
    I'll follow the stars until the first light.

    I don't know what drugs to take,
    To successfully alter the state,
    That my mind has been in as of late.
    Something is eating away at my brain.

    There's an elephant in the back of the room,
    And it's standing in plain view.
    Everyone can see,
    That it looks just like me.

    I'm roaming through the hills all alone,
    I'm trying to find my direction home,
    A question of space, a matter of time,
    I'll follow the stars until the first light.

    I will not call this road home,
    But it is all I know.
    I will not call this road home,
    But it is all I know.

    I'm roaming through the hills all alone,
    I'm trying to find my direction home,
    A question of space, a matter of time,
    I'll follow the stars until the first light.

    I'm a fan of Alexisonfire, so naturally I gave Dallas's solo work a shot. Its not bad, I'm eager to hear more of the new stuff now that his old band is "done for good."

    LOVE this new song. Will be perfect just like all of his/their other work.

    absolutely love City And Colour. the wife and I used Northern Wind as our 1st dance song and have matching tattoos on our wrists each sharing half of the lyrics to "you are all four seasons rolled in to one..... you're like the cold december snow in the warm july sun"

    So the album leaked, and it's absolutely fantastic. Dallas never fails.

    Check out "Two Coins" (lyrics below)

    [youtube]p8Kdzluxxdg[/youtube]

    Northwest is where I'm headin'
    Underneath the golden sky
    I'm searching for wisdom
    That every man seeks to find

    I've got wicked thoughts a-brewin'
    From the evil deeds I've done
    I'm looking for a reason
    For a reason not to run

    'Cause I've always been dark
    With light somewhere in the distance
    I've always been dark
    With light somewhere in the distance

    I've got no destination
    No place to call my own
    I'll explore the constellations
    Til I find the course I mean to hold

    But come fever or come famine
    Coming by the winter cold
    Just put two coins upon my eyelids
    So I can pay the boatman's toll

    I've always been dark
    With light somewhere in the distance
    I've always been dark
    With light somewhere in the distance

    I've been so unforgiving
    Stranded in old traditions
    I've always been dark
    With light somewhere in the distance

    I've always been dark
    With light somewhere in the distance
    I've always been dark
    With light somewhere in the distance
    I've been so unforgiving
    Stranded in old traditions
    I've always been dark

    With light somewhere in the distance

    It's fantastic. I like the hat-tip to Alexisonfire's "Born and Raised" in "Harder Than Stone", when Dallas says "I was born and raised, to live beyond."
