about

Death Songs was formed by Nicholas and Nathan Delffs in the Summer of 2007. When they weren’t touring or recording with their other band (The Shaky Hands) they were putting all of their time and energy into this project. Playing shows in a very loose and half improvised manner, they were doing what they had always done since they were kids. Only this time Nicholas was the voice and songwriter and Nathan was the lead guitarist/Pedal Steel player and engineer. They began recording constantly in several different houses all through out Portland. Many improvisations were captured in those sessions and many of the songs were ameditly recorded after the song had been written. Eventually Nathan Delffs moved to New York to pursue his other band Forest Fire and Nicholas soon started to play with his favorite guitar player in Portland(John Gnorski). A new album featuring Delffs' songwriting and Gnorski's guitar has been recorded by Nicholas Taplin, a very good friend and highly respected recording engineer. Out January 2013

Track Name: Let This Body Go
Walk but never run
death will always come
you better slow down
o to lift this on my own
I don’t know how
Alive or dead this body you’ll be around
the things you can’t control
the things you’ll never know
Seek and you never find
to live like this it seems unkind
Alive or dead this body you’ll survive
and lets try and let it go
for so long lives a soul
when you look but you never see
when these eyes or no longer me
when there far beneath the ground
o to leave them on my own I don’t know how
Alive or dead this body you’ll be around
and lets try and let it go
for so long lives a soul
Track Name: So Deadly
Hope for the fire to take me
I hold my head above the trees
and look at the world changing
First came the man made machine
that tares the eyes from the dream of love so deadly
So deadly you are
I can live like the animals
I don’t need much I don’t need rules
that change me that tame me
So Deadly they are
When burdens gone from it we’re free
when the work is done we plant the seed
now struck by the chord of everyone
now can you see what they have done
So Deadly we are
Track Name: You Will Part
I gave my self all away
where am I know where am I now
I try and talk no words to say
Where are they now where are they
Don’t go too far from the source you will part
I took it all it blew away
from my hands and from face
where did they go
where are they now where are they
Don’t go too far from the source you will part
You will part yes you will
Track Name: Water in the Eyes of Man
Clouds moved in cold and swift
the eyes of man turn and shift
connection to a better thing
will lead you to the steaming train
and all I want is to sit and talk to all of you before we die
but that would take up all my life
and besides what would we say
I loved you then but couldn’t stay
temptation leads a bitter man you said you would do all you can
to help me out in all this drought now if I don’t drink water I will die
and this could take up all my life
can water move down my throat and into my soul
did water heal the open wound
could healing happen so soon
the river is gone and so we yell
how could we not know that we fell
so far down here where I can’t see clear
when all this vision is leaving from my eyes
and this could take up all my life
and all i want is to sit and talk to all of you before we die
but that would take up all my life
Track Name: Saw Everything
All it once it came with the light when she opened up the door
All you thought was gone had returned with the end of a war
The rivers washed away the blood from off the ground
now safe inside her arms is it love that you found
It all came today when you saw everything
Walking through the leaves with the smoke in the air
So much has been changed your heart and all its cares
It all came today when you saw everything
You were driving for so long you forgot all about your home
now safe inside here arms you are no longer cold
Track Name: Remain In Love Straight To The End
All you know now is all you get
remain in love straight to the the end
when hell is gone where do we stand
stay with him straight to the end
I can feel my soul now soul now soul now
with the heart we will stay
I can see the rain that fell rain fell rain fell
into our lives we did grow
All you know now is all you get
remain in love straight to the the end
when hell is gone where do we stand
stay with him straight to the end
Walking through the grass so tall
off the path where the water calls
I will sing my life away
I will fall so hard to lift my shame
When all is gone nothing remains
can you believe well I know it’s strange
just because there are some rules
doesn’t mean that we still can’t choose
don’t forget the ways you are not
an old dog can be taught
an old dog still can be taught
to let it go and give it up
