about

Shell Shine’s Carolina cemetery setting was prompted by a tour I took through one of Charleston, South Carolina’s oldest historic burial grounds.

lyrics

left my ghost on the Carolina coast
with the ever-fading glimpse
of a quickly dying hope
that the ghost of your love
would find me there
all the marble headstones
could make for a quiet home
because without your love
this is where I belong

I’m an empty shell of a man
trying to make his way back to heaven
because life without love is too much like hell
where the coldest of hearts
are like treasures for the devil
the more I cry, the brighter they shine

burned my dreams with kerosene flame
& a gasoline breath to smoke out the pain
of our oldest memories that no longer serve me well
sold our old townhome & paid off all our loans
I’ll do anything these days to feel a little more complete

I’m an empty shell of a man
trying to make his way back to heaven
because life without love is too much like hell
where the coldest of hearts
are like treasures for the devil
the more I cry, the brighter they shine
