CookieNoCreams I have to extend a debt of gratitude to Bandcamp for adding this album to the New & Notable section. Graveyard Club have quickly become one of my favorite bands out there. I love the mixture of smooth 50's influenced vocals and 80's influenced melodies. A truly wonderful album that, for me, has to be in the running for album of the year. Though I can only pick one, my favorite tracks are Witchcraft, William, Maureen, July, Deathproof, and Miles and Miles. Favorite track: William.

Graveyard Club Minneapolis, Minnesota

In the fall of 2013, Graveyard Club recorded a batch of spooky, synth-laden 80’s pop songs in the basement of a 19th century mansion in St. Paul, MN. Originally comprised of Matthew Schufman (vocals, keys) and Michael Wojtalewicz (guitar), the band expanded to include Cory Jacobs (drums) and Amanda Zimmerman (bass, backing vocals). ... more

Track Name: Witchcraft
My broken heart the world forgot
I keep your picture with me, Betty
I hold this grief I cannot speak
The words are in my throat, oh

I walked until Cathedral Hill
Brought me down into the city
And all that pain, it went away
The day I saw your face

It’s midnight on Main Street
And this town’s all asleep
But you’re still here with me
And I know that

Darling your loves like witchcraft (witchcraft)
Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft)
Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft)
Yea, its witchcraft

If I don’t have you by my side
I’ll dream of you everynight
If I don’t have you by my side
I can’t live I wanna die

It’s midnight on Main Street
And this town’s all asleep
But you’re still here with me
And I know that

It’s midnight on Main Street
And this town’s all asleep
But you’re still here with me
And I know that

Darling your loves like witchcraft (witchcraft)
Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft)
Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft)
Yea, its witchcraft

Oh my darling
Track Name: Red Roses
It’s only me in the darkest dream where the river’s way too deep
I can’t get across it
It’s only me singing half asleep drifting slowly out to sea
I can’t get around it
Let the sun come undone get it out
Let it overcome this doubt
Let it be true
Do you have any idea all the shit that I’ve been through
Putting my world in your arms
You were the moon and the sun
For way too long

If I can’t be saved
Cover my grave with red roses
If I die this way
Cover my grave with red roses
Just keep holding on to a day that is gone
If all this will fade
Cover my grave with red roses, babe

It’s only me underneath these trees where the sun will never reach
I can’t get over it
It’s only me on these empty streets trying to find the room to breathe
I can’t get outside it
Let the time be kind let it in
Let it finally start let it hurt
Let it heal soon
Do you have any idea all the shit that I’ve been through
Putting my world in your arms
You were the moon and the sun
For way too long

If I can’t be saved
Cover my grave with red roses
If I die this way
Cover my grave with red roses
Just keep holding on to a day that is gone
You just keep holding on to a day that is gone
You just keep holding on to a day that is gone
You just keep holding on to a day that is gone
Track Name: William
I see it
Crawling up the walls, towards the ceiling
Oh my love you never would believe it
William, what is this feeling?

I’m tired
Laying in the forest by the water
Underneath these ferns you’ll never find me
William, why am I hiding?

I kept it together in the house that you haunted
I whispered your name but you never responded
I feel it, your spirit is free
William, she never loved me

I waited
Hoping something somehow could stay sacred
Every little meaning keeps escaping
William, what am I chasing?

It’s ugly
Why does every moment have to leave me?
I try so hard to hold on to this memory
William, I still feel empty

It’s always a mystery to love and be loved
I can bury these feelings they keep rising up
Tell me, why is a lifetime not enough?
William, what am I so afraid of?

My heart, my heart stopped beating
My lungs, my lungs stopped breathing
My head, my head stopped thinking again

My heart, my heart stopped beating
My lungs, my lungs stopped breathing
My head, my head stopped thinking again

I kept it together and my heart it stopped beating
I whispered your name and my lungs they stopped breathing
I feel it, your spirit - my head stopped thinking again
William, when is this gonna end?
Track Name: Cassandra
The things you lost will not be found
All the power lines hum in this river town
There are bodies buried underground
Cassandra sways in her wedding gown
When I die will I come back as someone new?
Maybe a brown-haired girl down the avenue
This is all gonna end I dunno how soon
Cassandra cries in an empty room

I miss the moon
I miss the moon
I miss the moon
Why don’t you?

I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone
Take me back where I belong
I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone
Take me back where I belong
I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone
Take me back where I belong
I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone
Take me back where I belong
Track Name: Finally Found
You finally found me
My sorrow, my lonely one
You wrapped around me
In shadow, the sun is gone

I’m an empty oyster in a sea of pearls
Kid I’m a rollercoaster in an unknown, windblown world
I’m a missing person way beyond the pines
By now the town stopped searching
All this endless time

You finally found me
My sorrow, my lonely one
You wrapped around me
In shadow, the sun is gone

Be my huckleberry, when I have nothing left
Put the past behind me and don’t look back baby don’t look back
Be my great blue heron
In a field of crows
Cause Ricky I stopped caring where these highways go

You finally found me
My sorrow, my lonely one
You wrapped around me
In shadow, the sun is gone
Track Name: It Hurts
Leave this I don’t wanna face it
I don’t wanna think about the time I wasted
Falling down a well kid
Can you hear the future whispering?
Die die honey I die every morning

Living wants you back in the past
Just to feel bad
Try all that you got, you’re the boss
I’m the lab rat
One in every hundred wondering how to live

Try to forget it

It’s a lonely road
To feel this lost at home
But where do you go?

Fall apart don’t break my heart
I blame it on the endless dark
I fought so hard to find the words
It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts

Stay true how should I find you?
I should I take off your mask and costume?
Maybe make a plan to let everything fall through
Searching through
the dust the dust the dust the dust the dust
Hang there slowly going insane
Let it all unfold like a paper airplane
What a disappointment, it turns out you’re just like everyone

What should I have done?

It’s a lonely road
To feel this lost at home
But where do you go?

Fall apart don’t break my heart
I blame it on the endless dark
I fought so hard to find the words
It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts
Letting go of yesterday
The innocence I couldn’t save
I tried so hard to find a way
It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts

Fall apart don’t break my heart
I blame it on the endless dark
I fought so hard to find the words
It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts
Letting go of yesterday
The innocence I couldn’t save
I tried so hard to find a way
It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts
Track Name: Maureen
Isn’t anyone a saint?
Is there such a thing called fate?
In the dark I touched your face
Oh Maureen

Can you hear the crickets sing?
Everyone at home’s asleep
I can feel you here with me
Oh Maureen

Streetlights tonight are all flickering

Isn’t anything enough?
Has there ever been true love?
Does the spirit hold you up?
Oh Maureen

Something’s wrong inside my brain
My head is full of ghosts again
I always felt so out of place
You know I never could relate to the world I’m living in

Trust, refreshing, beautify, more, healthy,
fresher, perfect, rich, better, luxury, longer
Famous, natural, pleasing, as easy as this

Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen
Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen
Track Name: July
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me

Why can’t I say goodbye?
Tears in eyes look like diamonds
Empty form and crooked sound
You were a bird
What are you now?

Fill my open mouth with feathers
Everyone I knows got a different heaven
Glowing jack-o-lantern light
Open up my skull
Take out all the insides

I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me

Why can’t I just move on?
Stuck in place by the weight of a sad song
Concrete legs, iron arms
Its all too soon, it took so long

Let the tears become an ocean
Say your name into every empty room
Seashells woven in your hair
Fill up my lungs with summer air


I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me
I don’t want a life with the lights around me

Why can’t I feel a thing?
I live life from under glass again
Saturday was gone too soon
The world kept crawling towards the moon

Minneapolis slept through sirens
Blackbirds in the dead eyed pre-dawn light
Waiting for the ice to fade
Hold tight, live life hindsight
Don’t change
Track Name: Birdie
Don’t tell lies, take advice
It’s way too late at night
I take drink after drink I start sinking

Compromise, you can let the blackbirds have my eyes
It was never enough
I never really felt your touch

Live in pairs, hold my hand down skinny attic stairs
Don’t be scared, stay lightheaded in the mountain air
Hold my breath as I stare into the TV set
I’m empty yet somehow filled with regret

Because the life you deserve is with the trash out on the curb
Birdie

Loosen up, tell me how was work today my love
My light, my light, my light stopped working
Am I blind or have I seen beyond you all this time
You take this home
Make it into a catacomb

You start to sigh, is this real life?
Because it’s been disputed
Everything’s fake my minds a lake these poison thoughts polluted

Nothing is real, its all what you believe
Am I a stranger to you?
Cause you’re a stranger to me

You fell from the tree, and now the gardens full of weeds
Birdie

My light, my light, my light stopped working
My light, my light, my light stopped working
My light, my light, my light stopped working
My light, my light, my light stopped working
Track Name: Deathproof
Multiply you and I
Leave me this lonely life
Never fail nightingale
Everything’s bound to die

Well my life’s gotten heavy I dunno what to do
Your body is gone but my true love is deathproof

Break my heart, crack my skull
Maybe tear out my eyes
Please don’t cry dragonfly
Everything’s bound to die

Well my life’s gotten heavy I dunno what to do
Your body is gone but my true love is deathproof

You’re nowhere to be found
But you follow me around

Well my life’s gotten heavy I dunno what to do
Your body is gone but my true love is deathproof

Deathproof
Never fail nightingale, let it die
Please don’t cry dragonfly, I’m alright
Track Name: Dreamland
I’ve been having visions staring at the ceiling
Wearing white jeans with my nostrils bleeding
Love, love, love I’ll never be myself again

I keep chasing you but I can’t get closer
My insides full of cherry soda
Love, love, love I’m living in a dreamland

Darling, I won’t be afraid of nothin’
It’s only blood

I prayed all day I dunno what for
I die each night but I always get reborn
I’ll never be myself again

You’re a single pearl in an empty sea
It’s a broken world but you belong here with me
I’m living in a dreamland

Darling, I won’t be afraid of nothin’
It’s only love

Let the tide recede, it’s all a fantasy that you don’t have to believe
Set the tigers free, isn’t life bittersweet?
This world is all a dream
Track Name: Goodnight Paradise
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Miles and Miles
There are weeks in January when the sun forgets to rise
And the grey inside my head matches the grey up in the sky
What was full somehow is empty now
You see it in my eyes
I’m miles and miles away

I could keep your love just like a plastic rose
It could never die
But it could never grow

There are days I walk into the woods, with snow up to my knees
And although my hands are cold as ice, it’s my thoughts I hope to freeze
I keep replaying every second, everything you said to me
And I feel miles and miles away

I tired to hide my love with invisible ink
It was always there
You just couldn’t see

There are hours I spend driving, to the border of this state
And wonder now why I felt then, such a steady pull to stay
Life is not something to be waited for it’s something to be chased
By now it’s miles and miles away

Love and fear are two wolves fighting over me
And the one that wins
Is the one I feed.
