Download 'Before the Dawn' the new track from the forthcoming album 'Long Goner' by Mat Gibson.


Oh! Where's the spark?
In this hardened purple heart
You've opened up to leave your mark on
Just close up when you're done.

It feels so long
Since I said bye on the phone
And wound up back here on the other side
Where the ghost was born

All this healing cannot stop
The empty feelings in the dark
But you hope. You hope.

Time! Drink up.
Say goodbye but don't get up
I'll be back before the dawn
And when the morning comes

All you thought we had in common
Turns to dust in your hands
In your hands, in your hands.


from Long Goner, released September 10, 2012
