LYRICS

 

<h5>Nickel Creek "Destination" Lyrics:</h5>

<blockquote>You don't owe me
One more minute of your wasted time
You act like it's all fine

But all the years I gave you
Thinking you knew that you wanted me
I wanted to believe

I've gotta make a destination
Find where I'll be loved
This time I've got no hesitation
And I'll be movin' on
(To where I belong)
And I'll be movin' on

I'm tired of trying
To describe what you will never see
How that we could be

Gave up and lost her
Now you're looking for a little grace
Well look at my face

I've gotta make a destination
Find where I'll be loved
This time I've got no hesitation
And I'll be movin' on
(To where I belong)
And I'll be movin' on

Empty corner gotta keep movin'
Taking hits while you've been missing
Night after night after I hear you

Say we're solid
But I know we're looking through the cracks
In our little patch

It isn't hard to leave
Knowing that I'll be getting life on track
Never looking back

I've gotta make a destination
Find where I'll be loved
This time I've got no hesitation
And I'll be movin' on
(To where I belong)
And I'll be movin' on
(Find where I'll be loved)
I'm already gone</blockquote>

<h5>Nickel Creek "Rest Of My Life" Lyrics:</h5>

<blockquote>The battle is over
Here we all lie
In a dry sea of Solo cups
With the sun in our eyes
But it's one of those endings
Where no one claps 'cause they're sure that there's more
What a great way to start the first day of the rest of my life

I guess the show's going on
So we pick up the pieces
We dropped for a song
And an ear-splitting headache
That makes it hard to figure out which puzzle they're for
But I can leave this part out of the story I write
And there are worse ways to start the first day of the rest of my life

Roommates, friends, lovers - quiet
I'm coming to
I'm turning myself into something a little less promising
A little more useful

The battle is over
We lost, but we'll live to call off the war
Don't that ceiling look high from the floor?
Don't it hurt just to move
As we shrink from the light?
As it pierces our bodies and thaws out our hearts
What a great way to start the first day of the rest of
The rest of my life</blockquote>

<h5>Nickel Creek "21st Of May" Lyrics:</h5>

<blockquote>It's time to bid this whole world goodbye
Oh, glory, time to fly away
We'll meet our savior in the sky
Hallelujah, the 21st of May

Sinner, heed these words of mine
'Bout the coming Judgment Day
Yes, the end is drawing nigh
Hallelujah, the 21st of May

They laughed while Noah built his boat
Then cried when came the rain
They mock me now, but I will float
On the 21st of May

Well, I've never been so sure
And I've never led no one astray
'Cept in the fall of '94
But Hallelujah, the 21st of May

They laughed while Noah built his boat
Then cried when came the rain
They mock me now, but I will float
On the 21st of May
They mock me now, but I will float
On the 21st of May

Hallelujah, the 21st of May
</blockquote>

Progressive acoustic trio Nickel Creek seemed to be right at home in the small setting for their NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert. The three musicians blended beautiful harmonies and played their instruments with a natural ease. In each song, a different member of the band took lead vocals, with the exception of the final composition which was completely instrumental. The band put on a lively performance for the small audience at the NPR Music office and filled it with laughter between songs, discussing Chris Thile's new braces and Sean Watkins' final song before judgement day.

It comes to no surprise that Nickel Creek has been together for twenty-five years after seeing how comfortable the trio is performing together. The California-based band filled the room with an infectious energy with each song they played. A few weeks ago, the group released their sixth album, A Dotted Line, and they are now finishing their US tour.

You can purchase A Dotted Line on iTunes, Amazon, and their official store. For Nickel Creek’s latest music, news, and tour dates, check out their Zumic artist page.
