the Dancing Hats Portland, Oregon

The Dancing Hats is a folk-rock n' roll outfit out of Portland, O.R. and they have the most fun. Forming over a weekend excursion to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and soon adding anybody they could find (violins! trombones! mandolins!), the group stays up late playing anytime they can and would love to sing for you whenever you would like. ... more

Track Name: I Can
What a day
This dehydration's got me feeling strange
And I can't sleep like I've got eyes on me
Like these walls are only paint

And it's okay
But heat is getting to me and I think
My lungs are small and the window won't
No, the window won't stay up

There seems to be
A faulty countenance
Of stacked cement and bricks
So make sure to roll the windows down
Before the bridge collapses

Driving out
My back is sweaty and I'm all alone
Sometimes I think I'd rather never go
To sleep than to an empty bed

Where'd it go
The summer moves so fast, if I were home
I think it would've lasted longer, oh
It'd still be early in July

It's a long way out
To all those old places
The ones where we were kids
Yeah I love you
OKLAHOMA, COLORADO, CALIFORNIA, TEXAS

I'd sing about how I woke up this morning
But I didn't go to sleep last night
So instead I'll dream about a bird who's
Got patterned feathers and sunflowers in her eyes

Oh and if you say the word that I'll never make a movie
And I'll sleep sad every night
Well I'll tell you that you're wrong and that I don't need sleep
No never, and You can't sing but I CAN

oh
I CAN
I CAN
I CAN I CAN I CAN I CAN I
Track Name: Quiet (Original Demo)
When I die, burn the body
I don't want to suffocate
Under six feet of lamentations
Sorrow and dry weight

Don't you ever sing alone
In the quiet of the tile echo
Ever sing alone
Cause the quiet cannot keep you
No, quiet never keeps you quite at home

And on the off-chance that there's no heaven
Send my ashes to the sea
So at least I'll reach the ends of the earth
and the water will remember me

Don't you ever sing alone
In the quiet of the tile echo
Ever sing alone
Cause the quiet cannot keep you
No, quiet never keeps you quite at home

I'll only die when you've forgotten
I'll only fade if you're away
I'll only sing when you are listening
I'll only laugh if you're okay

We can kiss when no one's looking
Hold hands when they're nearby
We can sing until it's light out
We can dance until we die

No you'll never sing alone
In the quiet of the tile echo
Never sing alone
Cause the quiet cannot keep you
No quiet never keeps you quite at
