Wylder is an indie-folk band first formed in Washington, DC. Wylder’s unique blend of indie-rock and chamber-folk combines the spirit of alternative rock giants like Arcade Fire and The Shins with the intimate, harmony-laden sounds of Fleet Foxes and Radical Face.
First formed by singer/guitarist Will McCarry, the group quickly grew to include Lonnie Southall (guitar/mandolin), Mike Pingley (drums), and Jackson Wright (bass/piano). Wylder’s debut album, Rain and Laura, was released in April of 2016, and was met with enthusiastic reviews from fans and critics alike. They are currently in the midst of recording their next full-length album alongside veteran producer Rick Parker (Lord Huron, Good Old War).
Lyrics:Say you meant as much to me, as all this slips right through my hands I watch you turn away, now I spent all my time wondering if I should just wait But Ive been up to my head now I may never forget you And if I walk away at least weve ways to go and oh I, oh I needed to let you Find your own way to get to shut it all away away away we know that Oh I think Im ready, Oh I think were ready to break But in my heart at least you stop to tell me Im The only one one Oh I think Im ready, Oh I think were ready to break Cause in my heart at least you stop and tell me Im the one Who knows you. Build me up, well take the time to let go And break it off for good In ways its been much better now that we both know that we are finally understood Cause Id been up to my head now I may never forget you If I had walked away at least weve ways to go and oh I, oh I needed to let you Find your own way to get to lock it all away away away You know now Oh I think Im ready, Oh I think were ready to break Cause in my heart at least you stopped to tell me Im The only one Oh I think Im ready, Oh I think were ready to break Cause in my heart at least you stop and tell me Im the one Who knows you. Im not scared to Waste my time Say that its closer To say that its over If I had more time to just waste on you Traded all my time just to waste on you
Lyrics:The waves are crashing from the dock of your bayhouse, I am still drifting, trying to wade through all my mind. Im diving under, hiding behind the moon now, two in the morning and the miles behind. The waves are crashing down on me, and I need you, Im waiting up alone just sleepless tonight. Im lost sleeping here in my basement. Shes sleeping somewhere far away. I sift through the static of my mind. Im finding that shes too much to take Too much to take. The mile markers stretching out from the ocean, I hold you closer from the edges of my mind. The minutes passing, passing gone with the daylight, everyones sleeping as I wait through all the night. The waves are crashing down on me and I need you, Im waiting up alone just sleepless tonight. Im lost sleeping here in my basement. Shes sleeping somewhere far away. far away! I sift through the static of my mind. Im finding that shes too much to take Too much to take. Ive been waiting, saving my breath now, please just take me down to your bayhouse.
Lyrics:Since I know you, well I should know better. When I saw him in my favorite sweater. Its never coming back home again. she took it off, the day he met her. Then he took her out, Ive never been so bitter. I couldnt seem to keep hold of it. Well, I said Im leaving, cause you watched me, watch you, watch him. Well I thought wed sort it out. I drew it out, but you did one better. You got him now, and hes got my sweater. Ill never give up that cardigan. Well, I said Im leaving, cause you watched me, watch you, watch him. Well I thought wed sort it out. Thats it, I said I'm leaving. Were done with subtle meaning: you wont be sleeping home tonight. I know you know the feeling, while staring at the ceiling, just think how I'll be moving... Ill never be coming home again.
Lyrics:Cold fell away as I slip to the sun, tangled in you for the first time in months. Were sinking back down, down, down, down falling back into ourselves. If settling down with you means more than empty words wed work it out. Oh, in a way its alright, you pulled me out from inside. And level me now. You gotta hold oh oh oh . Youd moved away, found a curious life. One with an equally strange kind of guy. You're blurring my eyes, I cant say if Ive been pushed until Im gone. Now, these days I feel fine. With you in a glass by my side. I swallow you down. The sun came up above the city Im awake, my heart is in my chest
Lyrics:I'm waiting up cause youre here inside my mind, and I wonder all the time, why I couldnt just let you know. Run, run, run, run Everyone is seeing through. Run, run, run, run Now Im racing through the month of June. Im tryna tell you now. Im pouring out, sinking down into the street, In the summer in the heat, wishing I could just tell you now. Waste my time. I fade to the summer sun. Read my lips. Forgive me when it all just comes out wrong. Im tryna tell you now. I just wondered if you could let me in. Wait in the sun, falling farther in love, wishing I could just say these things I wanted to. Sailing away, reaching under the waves, and I fall til I break, cause I just cant get to you. Wait for the fall, falling farther along wishing I could just say these things I wanted to. Sailing away, reaching under the waves, and I fall til I break, cause I just cant get to you. I can't say if I am ever coming home. I'm waking up, leaving all of this behind, cause you never leave my mind, and I stumble into the sun. Run, run, run, run. Everyone is seeing through. Run, run, run, run. Now Im racing through the month of June. Im tryna get to you. I wait in the sun falling farther in love. I wait in the sun farther in love. Wait in the sun, falling farther in love, wishing I could just say these things I wanted to. Sailing away, reaching under the waves, and I fall til I break, cause I just cant get to you. Wait for the fall, falling farther along wishing I could just say these things I wanted to. Sailing away, reaching under the waves, and I fall til I break, cause I just cant get to you. I can't say if I am ever coming home. Wait in the sun, and I know that I love. Its in my head, and I cant hold onto the brightest of tides crashing over my head, keeping me down and I cant hold onto Wait in the sun and I know that I love you now And I love you now. I love you now. Im catching up, and you tell me now that I wasnt ever far behind. Why couldnt you let me know?
Lyrics:And oh, well as I fell, I tried my best to carry on. And oh, I couldnt change myself, cause I find that I would rather Chorus: Carry on, woah, Even though, you know that nothing feels, the same. So carry on, woahh. And oh, well as I felt, The weight of inconsistent swells. I dug my heel into the sand, but I, Heard them mean for me to carry on, and on and on I could wait for you or just move on, my dear. Where I belong, But I just need for you to go. Carry on, woahh Even though, you know That nothing feels, the same. So carry on, woahh.
Lyrics:Oh, and when the storms come flooding through the hall, rising to the landing, tearing pictures from the walls. The currents pull us underneath that bright tide rips us out into a tangled coral reef where we will never drown. Now that were at the end I try to tell myself that its always been you. Should I continue on and let you make this place your own? Or should we float off with the waves until were taken home? A salty taste of surf the words are still caught on my tongue. In the wake of everything, it's fair we came undone. Cause if we sank along into the tide, Our shadows cast out long in crooked lines. And even if you might not follow through, as the sun is swallowed up from view the last face that Id see belongs to you.
Lyrics:So if I, took your hand as parades passed us by, would it be in my head? Is it all in my head? All in my head. And if you, let me go as the marching band tune slowly fades to the night, is it all in my head? All in my head. Cause even if you dont follow now I will wait until you do. And even if, youre scared to somehow I will wait for you. I will wait for you. Or if we took ourselves to the end of the street, you and I side by side. Is it all in my head? All In my head. Its nice to think of you this way, here at the end of the day. Cause even if you dont follow now I will wait until you do. And even if, youre scared to somehow I will wait for you. I will wait for you. Years from now when I forget your name, can we agree to blame it all on rumors of the rain? You saw the wake on the day we met it seemed youd had it figured out, but I just hadnt yet. We'll pass into the swells, the brightest tide can't save this now. Even though you wont follow now, Its fair to say I knew. When I was scared, I knew that somehow I would have to break from you. we would turn just to move.
Lyrics:That night the sun sank down and passed through the trees, the streets all drifted shut, and kept you with me. With the dim of the sun, Youre giving us up. The banks rising above covered the sill. She asks if she should stay. And since every word fell quiet and still, she says she will. The end of us delayed, and fell to the ground. Weathered by the storm and softened by doubt. With the dim of the sun, Youre keeping me up. My love, carried away, dressed by the storm her lantern turned away. Shes swallowed by night and feathers of rain, until the sun breaks. Years flit by in a day. But I still have you today. You dressed in white, and I followed you out through the door. Our backs to the wind, and my eyes cast down in the storm. Oh, my love, she settles down. My love. My love, she settles down.
Lyrics:When you woke across the sea the day before we first would meet, had you given a thought of me? Or who Id be? Turn me over through endless seas and endless dreams. Far from me to change a mountain built from waves, guarded by the storms, and years of endless rain. Passed, away through the reeds, toward home in the quiet of sleep. Your boat touched the shore, did you think of me? And when she left It rained for days. The flooded roads, well they split the lake. And Id given you all my love, And all Ive done. In the weight of the winters sway, well I watched you change. Ive been calling, dressed for the weather. A rented coat, and your fathers house. A passing bolt cut straight to my heart you you lie in wait like a snake in the grass. Far from me to change a mountain built from waves, guarded by the storms, and years of endless rain. I guess I should have known, you left my heart to roam.
Lyrics:When we first left, I tried to speak. Cause when were home we both pretend to sleep. I cant recall colder skies, driving her back through that night Shes catching her breath She tells me now: Were quiet, so I wanna go home. Im holding my breath to keep her now, but she has gotta know, i gotta stop biding time just to say. Dont bite your lip in restraint. You and my friends, a glass of wine spilling your heart like I dont mind. Im holding my breath To hear you now say what you shouldve when we were alone. Im catching my breath to keep it down I gotta find the words I gotta stop biding time just to say. Dont bite your lip in restraint. You slur your lines just to blame, oh and I know it all just sounds the same. All the things that I can replace. Oh and if you want me to change Id have given you a go. Been waiting up through the days, follow through when you will. Ive been waking to the sun, I break into a run, Im telling everyone, Ill call it. Ive been waking to the sun, I break into a run, Im telling everyone, Ill call it now. you got you got you got me now. you got you got you got me now.
Lyrics:We met just once, but I really knew. And this heartache that you barely may remember still pulls me through. And if time spanned back again, would you know and try to change my tune? Could we take it back? But you moved out west or some thing like that. Where seasons barely had a sense of meaning and the coast slips back. And swallows up the end as we know and try when you asked again. Will you take it back? And you always were type. And I said it first if you remember. Under the weather Where I found a sip of you Just for a moment, And youll always be my type.
Lyrics:Find a way back home. Where the shade has gathered ever since we left here, and the trees have overgrown. I forgot you in a way. Since then the weeds drew up and covered up the doorstep, and the floors have given way. I still pray for rain, In my sleep a place we meant to keep Ill lay my head beneath somewhere the ghosts still meet. And if I woke too soon, to see them fade from view into the afternoon somewhere I thought I knew. Youll weather when Im gone. Dead of night, in time the shapes all sway together where the trees bend, and they gather in the light. Then they all just stepped away in time. Ill forget whatever may have changed here with the first of the light. The shade has left my sight. In my sleep a place we meant to keep Ill lay my head beneath somewhere the ghosts still meet. And if I woke too soon, to see them fade from view into the afternoon, somewhere I thought I knew. Youll weather when Im gone.
Lyrics:I sink back below as the water surrounds. Youd known all this trouble could bring me down. Find something sweet to say and keep it to yourself. Let it get out. Keeping it down. Ill sink back below til you change me enough.?Fade out, lose our sight as it changes to dusk With every single word that says weve come undone. Not making a sound, dont let me leave now. You look as if its something I should know. The undertow we built into a home. I never want to know if I even love you now. You left it here, thinking itd be saved somehow. I sink back below as the current surrounds. See me, and feel that all of our actions were bound I cant remember which way that it went wrong. Some memory drowned. I cant make it out. You look as if its something I had known. The undertow we built into a home. I never want to know if I even love you now. You left it here, thinking itd be saved somehow No, do I even love you now? And I dont see that Ill ever figure out. Were turning into something and you have held the line. Will you turn me into someone who takes it all in stride? I gotta know. Ive gotta tell you. If I could ever, if I could tell you. Oh, no if I even love you now. You left it here, Thinking itd be saved somehow.
Lyrics:Though it may not be right now, with the way things have worked out, it was often that I should have said I was tied in fear throughout. Then you took me by surprise, with the way you looked that night. With your coat turned up against the snow, we were taking our time, and you couldnt have known that youd gone to my head as Im walking you home. She has gone. She has gone right to my head. When I wake before you now, settle in and settle down. Where the trees are dark and hollowed out, with the winter drifting south. I will know just what you mean, a kind of golden age thinking. Where we both look back to things wed known, as were taking our time, and were taking it slow. And its gone to my head, and you couldnt have known You have gone. You have gone right to my head. Though it may just be right now, with the winter drifting south.
Lyrics:Wend your way through me, with a call from my father and the fear you leave. Set me wandering, in the blush of the morning with a weight to keep. Some thought of longing, waiting for the sun. You can keep and shelter. If I could have known, would I bend? To get you back from the side of my head, and I never thought to wonder if I'd thank god for all of this fiction, thank god you said whatever's on your mind. Were you more to me than the lake, and the harbor, and the tallest trees? The thought we wouldnt speak, spools on the table and slips beneath. Some thought of longing, waiting for the sun. You can keep and shelter. If I could have known, Would I bend? To get you back from the side of my head, and I never thought to wonder if I'd thank god that this is my fiction, and thank god you said whatever's on your mind. Thank god you said whatevers on your mind. The Lake bowed down.
Lyrics:Say that its over, if thats what we need to say. In our one bed apartment the street passes through the shade where we gave it up. I watched from the hallway on some afternoon the ghost of us packing up our living room. you spoke to me softly, said something we knew. The light changed its hue, its leaving us soon. Another sort of lantern for you. One that only measures to you. Put your head on my shoulder, and dance by the kitchen sink, where I may not have told you in the blue of the tv screen that you gave me love. Is this what you needed to know it was true? Some kind of reminder of something we knew the light changed its hue, its leaving us soon. Another sort of lantern for you. The kind that really measures to you.
Lyrics:We were tied through fear ?in the hope wed grow.?Your retreat from home could end?where we slept beneath the side of my bed?in an empty house I shared with my friends. When the hope fades south?and the steps caved in.??When the embers hold below?and remind me of you coming home?to wash all the smoke from your clothes. But I dont mean to say?that all my love had turned away.?But I just need you for the weekend?or a while. Are you right with god??Was he on your side??As the days shrink back again?turn to quiet, sink into dread,?shading all the thoughts in my head. So, I speak with death.?Will he work with time??To the days longer in light.?He picks her from the back of my mind.?blots her out and changes my sight??and with the sense from you?that all my love had turned away.?And I believed that for these weeks and for a while. I dont mean to prepare for this. ?I could never say why.?I dont need this now. But I just need you for the weekend or a while.
Lyrics:By the big hunt in this light. Did you wonder if we might? Cause you were like sun on the side of this room that I wandered through. Theres nothing you could possibly say to change this for me. Wrapped in the sound of some fictional life. Where someone like you was kissing my eyes. You were like sun on the side of this room, that I wandered through. You feel like summer before the rain. The trip we took to the lake. Say what you meant all along. You taste like coffee and cinnamon. Caught in the thick of it, Ill send of all of this to you now: Youre ever my love Taken our time cause we have never been scared. And you hardly knew yourself, and your books may never leave my shelf. You hardly knew yourself. I wont be another. I dont mean to say that I was just another. I dont think there could ever be another. I dont mean to say I was just another.
Lyrics:Oh, love wanes?as we get older.?The shift of space?Into your arms. Should we say this now??Could we wait somehow? Sink your teeth?into the autumn.?Weighed back down?and covered with snow. Should we say this now??Could we wait somehow? You open yourself to me now, ?and tethered us both into doubt.
Lyrics:Drawn from Orion, we bend while picking you up through the last days of autumn. Climbing the steps to your bed, the drifts building upwards like cards on a table towards home. Oh, winter takes me four hours away. Pick through the pines Where we met my grandfather. He told me you looked quite the same. Your coat filled with burs, and we grinned at the thought of it. Saying we know youll be safe. The sun howling down on your path to the bottom towards home. Time wont change that you never looked away, if you pass so unexpectedly. And when we travel where you go through several weeks of snow to see. Backwards inside the lines, and you sit by my side as I read. The forest where we had just to leave you now. Oh, summer brings us back from far away. Soaked to the bone, overlooking the garden. And though all words may have changed, youre picking me up by the turn of the autumn.
