Juicy and rich, this record is not to be missed. Marin's songs are like high country rivers - pure, rippling and flecked with gold and she's joined by the most stand-up band - The Follow Through.

Track Name: Tall Thin Man in a Black Cheyenne
Hey darling take a ride with me.
Over the valley, oh what we might see.
It’s taken a while, it’s been an unsaid trial.
But here we are again
Oh that familiar smile

5 in the morning, caught up in symphony
Oh the coyote cry
A crook in your shoulder, you feel so much older
Something inside has died

You make an appearance after disappearing
For so long
I said goodbye to you before I ever knew
You would come back along

Tall thin man in a black Cheyenne

Hey darling take a look now, what I see
How many secrets make up you and me
Nobody said too much nobody bites their tongue.
Nobody said enough, nothing was done.

We got the kind of love that’s forever oh
Forever begins
Forever’s a moment like this, forever,
Has always been.

Leave it be where it is and let it
Burn where it lies.
Reference back to beautiful
When everything dies.

Tall thing man in a black Cheyenne
Track Name: Go Home
Half a mile.
Broke down some how.
Thinking that we,
Were something bigger than the seas.

Maybe I’ll
Stay in this room for a while.
Deep in the blue
In this room without a view.

Won’t omit
What I can’t admit.
Oh it fell right through
Just like we knew it to.

Won’t omit
What I can’t admit
Yes it fell right through
Just like we knew it to.

Half a step to the whole nine yards
Do you want to go home or do you
Want to go hard?

Wine to whiskey and
Sparks to flame
Climbing up but we’re slipping
O’er this rugged terrain.
Track Name: No Sleeping It Off
Something so big I'll never understand
For there's a story in every grain of sand
And I'm lost in awe in the power of the sun
As we underestimate like we've always done

Waves like distant relatives you never see them enough
And the air is full of sedatives there's no sleeping it off

It's a good time to go swimming
The water is mighty willing
Track Name: The Dark
The dark is no place to call home
But there’s hope in the shadows
Too many days left alone
Divided by Ego
Once there was light
In the darkest of nights
Faithfully blinded
Frozen in mind
A love left behind
Till I was reminded
Till I was reminded


To fall further down
To crash harder
To fight a losing round
To burn to cinders


The dark is no place to call home
But you can’t hide forever
Unheard unseen and unknown
Or face the bad weather
An impenitent heart
With a cruel disregard
To the death that’s around you
A vast execution
Built on proud destitution
Have faith in the follow through
Have faith in the follow through
Track Name: Only Mine
It’s true
Everything that you said
Is it as true as what you feel?
I cast
And hold the line release the doubt
Nothing has ever felt this real
And this cruel
And haunted I’ll let you go
I’ll bring the battle you’ll attack
The words I love you
I say out loud
But you can’t say it back

I see
You clear when you can’t see yourself
I hear but only when I listen
I taste
The tears when my eyes are dry
Oh another failed reaction
So I cast
It unto my carelessness
Where you meet me for some time
The words I love you
I say again
These words are only mine

Only mine
Mon coeur brisée
Only mine
Ma seoul muse
Track Name: Take You By Surprise
Standing in the middle of seven temples
Wandering jew at my feet
Takin’ a long stroll through these old growth jungles
Wonderin’ what’s buried underneath

Do you ever feel like you’ve seen it all before?
Maybe I just saw it on TV
But my old eyes keep on looking out for more
But in the puddles and the windows
Your smile is all I see

How I long for
To see the sunrise in your eyes.
Oh how I long for the moments
That take you by surprise.

I climb the highest tower and look at the top of the trees
Call to the birds but they don’t seem to hear.
My heart beats like a rabbit running from its prey
As I run from love the only thing I fear

This is where the king sits, feathers in his ringlets
While his queen, she’s lost at sea.
He waits for battle and he herds them in like cattle
But lost, lonely without love he’ll forever be.
Track Name: Salem
This becomes trial by fire
When you see the worst in me
Then it starts – the witch hunt
You bring out the best in me

One Match struck
There will be no luck
As the sky falls in like a ceiling
Limbs are bound
People all around
And this town will hear what I’m feeling
As I go

That’s not me – I’ve been set free
It’s all the same you know
Though I’m gone the memory’s strong
Enough to haunt you so

One Match struck
There will be no luck
As the sky falls in like a ceiling
Limbs are bound
People all around
And this town will hear what I’m feeling
As I go
Track Name: Carnegie Curves
You are a southerner
I’m from the north
Travelling back and forth
Backwards forwards

Picking up speed on
The Carnegie Curves
The addled words
Legitimate suffering

Dropping it down to
The hardwood floors
Where a thousand doors
Fell from their hinges

Beyond the railing
A suitcase falls
And the time
Spills over
The time
Spills over

We took the time but too late

Once was a part of this
A virtuous friend
But I turned out to be
Just like you in the end

Pointing our fingers
Conducting the choir
Selling your way
Your messiah for hire

Trade in my services
For heartaches and rhyme
And dimes on the dollar, it’s
Hot under the collar, it’s

Bitter like winter winds
And hot like wine
Well and I
Got mine
Yes I
Got mine

We took the time but too late
Too late, too late, too late.


Back off my shoulder
I know you’re prison sent
Crazy they called me
Crazy they haven’t met

Reasons why faded
Didn’t you make it clear
Crazy I am so
Crazy I’ll always fear.


We took the time but too late
Track Name: Go Where We Belong
If you were a river
And you ran on through this town
I’d be the banks to hold you
I’d be the rocks that roll you
I’d be the sand in the shallow corners hoping I could slow you down
If you were a river
Honey in your arms I would drown


If you were a snowstorm
And you landed on my house
I’d be the fire you’d melt for
I’d be the cat sleeping on the floor
I’d be the girl in the neon snowsuit
Howlin back at the wind
If you were a snowstorm
Honey won’t you snow me in


Yee-hee heeeeeeee
Walk on boys


If you were a train car
Rolling across this plain
I’d be the tracks you’d follow
I’d be your hobo cargo
I’d be the stationmaster waiting all the way down the line
If you were a train car
I’d catch you ever time


Everytime that I hear that whistle blowin
Everytime that I feel the cold draw near
Ever time this I think of better ways this could’ve gone
They don’t last too long
We go where we belong
