about

Ned and the Dirt Los Angeles, California

“When you throw one southerner and two north-easterners into a blender and then pour them out in Los Angeles you get Ned and the Dirt’s unique brand of Backyard Indie-Rock. Ned’s southern roots can be found in his preacher’s tongue and garage-party swagger, but it’s The Dirt’s northern grit that gives their music a grip on your ears. ... more

Track Name: Physical Proof
I need a touch, just one little touch
To feel engulfed by a feeling much bigger than me
Physical Proof is necessity
When dealing with feelings I don't want to break them
No please don't break me

Our tangible bodies, they groove and they glide
They greatly project how I only feel inside
It's your love that gets me through

Just give it a try, one little try
That is just all I'd need if you were my wife
Quiver and smile
Drop your disguise
You'll lay down in peace so sweet right by my side

Our tangible bodies, they groove and they glide
They greatly project how I only feel inside
It's your love that gets me through

This room is alive with the heart that you betrothed to me, my bride
Track Name: Closer
So I heard you're back in the state
I'm surprised by how long you stayed away
did you get what you needed to feel safe
I kept a journal these days you were away
I filled its pages with ink stains and peppered dreams
These marks rarely stay

But you take one step closer to me
Yeah, you take one step closer to me

So I heard you're back in town
Does that mean that you're gonna come around
Cause even the flowers here forgot your name
I swear I watered them every single day
I wanted to show you I could be nurturing
Does that make you want to stay

But I take one step closer to you
I take one step closer to you
I take one step closer to you
I take one step closer to you

So I heard that you already came around
Packed up your things moved out of town
I just knew that you would never feel safe
I really wish that you had at least stopped by
I understand your fears I just hoped that you'd get mine

But you take one step further from me
Yeah you take one step further from me
Yeah you take one step further from me
Yeah you take one step further from me

I swear I've tried at least a hundred times
To understand just what happened in your mind
I can't gain any insight
As to why you chose for us to end this way
Maybe next July I'll understand your reasons why
You never did feel safe

But I take one step further from you
Yeah I take one step further from you
Yeah I take one step further from you
Yeah I take one step further from you
Track Name: Turkish Delight
I come over
I creep right in
Ain't a soul in the world except the two of us
That should know what's 'bout to happen here
You take me up
Take me up by the hand
We both know what's going down
When I come around and neither can escape it

But oh, things are heating up right now
Unforgivable nature
I need to just slow down
But I can't
Shake this vixen from my head
I need to just slow down
I need to just breathe

You're so relentless
With your hands on my thighs
Your body fits in so perfect
The way it slides into mine
You're hard to deny
I'm starting to think you're right
Maybe we should be together for more than just
For more than just tonight

But oh, things are heating up right now
Unforgivable nature
I need to just slow down
But I can't
Shake this vixen from my head
I need to just slow down
I need to just breathe

It's just one look
It's just one look
That turns into me coming closer now
It's just one dance
It's just one dance
That turns into me coming home with you
It's just one kiss
It's just one kiss
That turns into you taking my clothes off
It's just one touch
It's just one touch
That turns into love in this bed tonight

You're such a temptress
I come back every time
And you know that
That's why you come around to blow my mind
Track Name: Dear Liza
Dear Liza,
It pains me to say
But I can't find a way through these days
It gets lonesome
Trying to sift through the haze
So I'll just sit here
And wait for one to stay

Cause I hear you
I feel you
I hear you
I feel you

I've been hearing
Talks of storms to come
And I keep hoping one will bring you home
See, it gets lonesome
Trying to bear this stale grudge
So I'll just sit here
And sift through the sludge

Cause I hear you
I feel you
I hear you
I feel you
But I can't see you
No, I can't see you
No, I can't see you
No, I can't see you

Look me in the eyes
Tell me what you see
'Cause I've been feeling tried
And full of disbelief
So come on baby cry
I'm as open as can be
So tell me baby why
You've been holding out on me

I can't see you
No, I can't see you
No, I can't see you
No, I can't see you
Track Name: The River
It's the water here that makes us want to drown
Yeah, the undertow relentlessly pulls us down
There's a rope there to save us at the end
And if we all pile on we won't come back again

The River already took the middle son
I just know that there's something that I could've done
But I missed his hand before he passed
And now I have to live with that face that I saw last

Yeah, that face that I saw last

I've grown aware of my mortality
And that goes along with chasing this here dream
But it's a rat race there until the end
And I just don't think that I'll ever go back again

No, I can't go back again

It's the water here that makes us want to drown
Yeah, he undertow relentlessly pulls us down
But there's a rope there to save us at the end
And I just don't think that we'll ever come back again
Track Name: Sugar
Honey you know how I feel inside
And you know that I can't be long tonight
So just can we just get this out of the way
Oh, and be lovers for tonight

All this kissing and touching
It's driving me insane
And the thrill of it all
Is I don't even know your name
I'm feeling so free and oh so wild
But yet so unfulfilled
'Cause in the end I know we'll go our separate ways
We'll go our separate ways

Now, I don't know what you're thinking about
Maybe you and I could take this to the next level
No, you don't want to
Well, neither did I
'Cause honey girl you don't mean a thing to me except for tonight

All this kissing and touching
It's driving me insane
And the thrill of it all
Is I don't even know your name
I'm feeling so free and oh so wild
But yet so unfulfilled
'Cause in the end I know we'll go our separate ways
We'll go our separate ways

I see you around every once and awhile
I know it's weird, but it doesn't have to be
I know you see me even though your eyes do not
Well come on love, why won't you acknowledge me
That is fine, just you remember one thing
You'll never have another lover as good as me, oh no

All this kissing and touching it drove me insane
And I'm sorry love, but I still don't know your name
I felt so free and oh so wild
But I learned my lesson
Those sort of nights, they don't mean a thing
Oh no, they don't mean a thing
Track Name: In Ronda
Mapping out my future while my eyes are still awake
The people on the street practice their Easter charade
Your gaze, it says you're thinking
But your eyes, they wait for me
But still you put on your own charade

Will I wait for you
Will I wait for you
WIll I wait to throw it all away

I need you to remember that this love ain't guaranteed
I'm fickle and I waiver at the first sign of retreat
You love me till the world ends, yeah your heart is so carefree
But still the question remains the same

Will I try for you
Will I try for you
WIll I try not to throw it all away

I'm not treading lightly, I'm not acting on a whim
You know I love you madly, see you high as seraphim
This marriage is a contract of steadfast company
But still my bed remains unmade

Will I try for you
WIll I try for you
Will I try not to throw it all away
