about

Crystal City Iowa City, Iowa

Crystal City from Iowa City, Iowa, is a versatile combo centered around Dave's midwestern sincerity. His honest songs and Sam's lilting harmonies can warm a weary heart and get bedraggled feet stomping. -Travis & Ali Ward, Hillfolk Noir

Track Name: The Best Way
You put nails into my coffin, you send staples down my spine
You like it when I'm laughing, to you its so divine
Like a trash can you flip me over in the middle of the night
Like crazy teens far from sober running out of sight
I never see you coming but I know when you're here
It's not the way you glance it's the way you stare

You put mud into my veins and you send dust down my lungs
You like it when I'm coughing, to you it's so much fun
Like a cigarette you put me out in the middle of a break
Like a mob screams out for more, how much can I take
I never see you smiling but I know when you shine
It's not the way you dance it's cause you're mine

The best way's the hard way cause the easy way repeats itself
Like a broken record or a fucked up compact disc
And the best way's the hard way cause the easy way repeats itself
Like a peeping tom or a fucked up little dress
Track Name: Dynamite
I'm not trying to be your trouble
I'm just trying to be your woman
And I'm not trying to burst your bubble
I'm just trying to understand

No I don't want to be your dynamite
But I'll be your fuse tonight
No I don't want to be your dynamite
But I'll be your fuse tonight

I'm not trying to be so wicked
I'm just trying to fall in love
I don't believe in things like cupid
I only believe in the things above

No I don't want to be your dynamite
But I'll be your fuse tonight
No I don't want to be your dynamite
But I'll be your fuse tonight
Track Name: Change
You and me go together like oil and water
But you know that we will stay together
Cause there's no one else to date

You and me can stay in and watch bad TV
Smoking cigs and drinking Old Milwaukee
Yeah, that's alright with me

People they feel strange
People they feel chained
You and I won't change
You and I won't change

Cause you and me go together like oil and water
But you know that we will stay together
Cause there's no one else to date

People they feel strange
People they feel chained
You and I won't change
You and I won't change

People they feel strange
People they feel chained

You and I won't change
People they feel strange
You and I won't change
You and I won't change
Track Name: Give Me a Kiss
Well I know that I treated you bad
I left you down and I know I left you sad
And I've apologized about a thousand times
What can I do to make things right?

Come on up and give me a kiss
Cause you know that's the one thing
That I'll surely miss or will you
Walk away like you've done before or will you
Open up your heart so I can walk through the door

And you know that I've seen you around
I've been away at school but now I'm back in town
And I've apologized way too many times
What can I do to make things right?

Come on up and give me a kiss
Cause you know that's the one thing
That I'll surely miss or will you
Walk away like you've done before or will you
Open up your heart so I can walk through the door
Track Name: Waiting
Now you've got this on your head like before
And I'm fine, I'm waiting
If you believe it, just run ahead and in time you'll see it

I was alone on the front porch last night
You know that I'm feeling so good, it's alright now
Talking to you on the edge of a knife

And I'm waiting out on a thread
And I'm taking It all to my head

I'm so confused, I'm dizzy and free
Try to be patient, though that's not me
Now I'm waiting

Now that you see how this crazy world is
I will laugh, I'm waiting
And if you could just try and relax in due time, you'll see it

I was alone in the car late last night
The radio up and I'm feeling alright now
Talking to you on the edge of a knife

And I'm waiting
Doing my best
And I'm taking
I hope I am blessed

I'm so confused, I'm dizzy and free
Try to be patient, though that's not me
Now I'm waiting

My head spinning round and round
I'm nervous, weak
Tongue tied in knots, searching for a purpose
Bleak

Though that's not me
Now I'm waiting
Out on a thread
And I'm taking
It all to my head

Yes I'm waiting
Doing my best
And I'm taking
I hope I am blessed
Track Name: Where the Treasure Is
You could tell me how you are
I could find out in a smoky bar
How you drink, how you talk
How you smile and the way you walk

Do you need to come inside
Where the treasure is?

I could tell you what's on my mind
Would it change anything tonight?

Do you need to come inside
Where the treasure is?
Or do you need to run and hide
Where the pleasure is?
Track Name: Pink Bayonet
Twist ties and a plastic sack
Where you running, come on back
Foolish yes, oh that's a fact
I will try to relax

But I'm waiting for my life to mean something
Can't you see that I'm average
I won't lie, I need your honey, it's so sweet

Baby I'm crazy, Baby I'm lazy
I don't know just how to break a heart
And you know that I have gone mad

Broken glass and an empty drink
I might just be on the brink
Of breaking down
I love your pink bayonet it's in the sink

And I'm feeling like a homeless man
Out in the breeze, and I'm rolling
Like an empty can, no where to be seized

Baby I'm crazy, Baby I'm lazy
I don't know just how to break a heart
And you know that I have gone mad
Track Name: Tangled Down
You got me tangled down
It's so lovely your hanging round
You can stay here as long as you want
You don't have to if you don't

But I won't fall in love again
With you

You know that I kiss so much
It's thoughtless and it's a crutch
The truth of it is you're so sweet
Halloween, every minute's a treat

But I won't fall in love again
With you

You don't have to
Stay here now
Well that's alright
It'll work somehow

But I won't fall in love again
With you
Track Name: Don't You Know
So what now should I do with myself?
Well I'm sitting here on the shelf

You come round, oh back to this town
And mess with my head once again

So where should I go without you?
Well I don't quite know what to do

So come here, oh back to this house
Well this pillow's lonely like mine

We'll sit in my kitchen again
I'll make you something if you want me to
Track Name: Little Italy
Well she's my girl once again
And it's after dark
And I'm full of sin and what I do believe in
And everything has changed
But you know that I'm okay
She's the thing that stays consistent here

So take me down and see me off to Little Italy
So take me down and see me off

So take me down and see me off to Little Italy
So take me down and see me off

So now I see your disease and the things you like
Awake dreaming about the day
Well if you want this medicine
I'm knocking so just let me in
I'll stay here 'til you get better now

So take me down and see me off to Little Italy
So take me down and see me off

So take me down and see me off to Little Italy
So take me down and see me off

And now you're gone and there's nothing I can do
I lie awake thinking of you

So take me down and see me off to Little Italy
So take me down and see me off

So take me down and see me off to Little Italy
So take me down and see me off
Track Name: Every Time You Cry
Now and then I find another way to learn
Here and there I know
Baby where I am

And every time you cry, a little part of me it dies
And every time you cry, a little part of me it dies
Baby don't you cry

Now and then you find everyone's
out of here again
I could never change, but I'm trying
baby is that strange

And every time you cry, a little part of me it dies
Baby don't you cry
And every time you cry, a little part of me it dies
Baby don't you cry

And you could flow backward into a dream
That I've seen
And you could flow backward into a dream
That I've seen

And every time you cry, a little part of me it dies
Baby don't you cry
And every time you cry, a little part of me it dies
Baby don't you cry
And every time you cry, a little part of me it dies
