  • Lyrics: suddenly i knew the loving look you gave was not permanent. surely it would fall into indifference from that bright blue gaze. this is the way we go from a sleeping embrace to waking up alone from a dream about when we were. how did we get so far from laughter in the kitchen? your shimmering hair in my hands and everything was burning. i was looking for answers, but you were looking away from me, out of the windows of that cluttered room, toward another one, you were already gone, wearing somebody else’s t-shirt. i don’t want to be the next step in your recovery from the last one you loved. who’s the last one you loved? how did we get so far from laughter in the kitchen? your shimmering hair in my hands and everything was burning. hannah leigh, you knew.

About Starlight Drive

Starlight Drive

Staunton, VA United States

Starlight Drive is the work of DC indie songwriter Jared Featherstone in collaboration with several similarly afflicted friends. The songs are contemplative and sometimes dark, but always seem to have a hopeful thread holding everything together. Acoustic guitars are balanced by the atmosphere of subtle keyboards and backing vocals. A practicing fiction writer, Featherstone brings a literary element to the lyrics, weaving in images and ideas that provoke thought without weighing down the songs.
