ARE YOU OUT THERE?
Dar Williams


Perhaps I am a miscreation

No one knows the truth there is no future here

And you're the DJ speaks to my insomnia

And laughs at all I have to fear

Laughs at all I have to fear

You always play the madmen poets

Vinyl vision grungy bands

You never know who's still awake

You never know who understands and


Are you out there, can you hear this?

Jimmy Olson, Johnny Memphis,

I was out here listening all the time

And though the static walls surround me

You were out there and you found me

I was out here listening all the time


Last night we drank in parking lots

And why do we drink? I guess we do it cause

And when I turned your station on

You sounded more familiar than that party was

You more familiar than that party

It's the first time I stayed up all night

It's getting light I hear the birds

I'm driving home on empty streets

I think I put my shirt on backwards


Are you out there, can you hear this

Jimmy Olson , Johnny Memphis

I was out here listening all the time

And though the static walls surround me

You were out there and you found me

I was out here listening all the time


And what's the future, who will choose it?

Politics of love and music

Underdogs who turn the tables

Indie versus major labels

There's so much to see through

Like our parents do more drugs than we do

Oh....


Corporate parents, corporate towns

I know every TV set that has them lit

They preach that I should save the world

They pray that I won't do a better job of it

Pray that I won't do a better job

So tonight I turned your station on just so I'd be understood

Instead another voice said I was just too late

And just no good....


Calling Olson, Calling Memphis

I am calling, can you hear this?

I was out here listening all the time

And I will write this down

and then I will not be alone again yeah

I was out here listening

Oh yeah I was out here lis


DAR WILLIAMS

American singer-songwriter Dar Williams lives at the intersection of pop and folk. She fuses many genres (blues, rock, jazz), resulting in a rather organic sound. She has been making music for over a decade.

Her studio album My Better Self finds Dar at an unequivocally brazen crossroads. Reflecting on American politics, the disillusionment and apathy of youth, and the female experience, Dar makes no apology for her outspoken beliefs.
