about

Dwight Howard Johnson Charlottesville, Virginia

Formed at the end of 2011. Led by the concentrated lyrical delivery of frontman Drew "Pop" Carroll and the rumbling background of the rhythm section, DWIGHT HOWARD JOHNSON has been known to turn it up. Loud. Blame that on "Dos Cosas" Tom Daly's thunder stick and "Catfish" Johnson on the drums. But can you really blame them? ... more

Track Name: Safe Distance
V1
Where too many people can recall your face and name
Is the sort of town for which home I wish wasn't claimed
The wave of marriages I fear is fast upon us
Then divorces funerals the house parties of adulthood
---
Lack of care leads to bliss in lack of knowledge
Close friends fade to grey then black after college
Since lost touch beats dealing with death
I like to love my friends from a safe distance
Love my friends from a safe distance

REFRAIN
If no one's involved
I'll never get hurt
If I stay inside
I'll never get burned

V2
To be of this world we're living in
Gotta harden that heart and cure leather from skin
The one's you trust oh how they'll deny you
The better you are to them the better they'll get you
----
But the odds can't always favor the house to win
So why even bother to fit in?
One day my love will make an appearance
Until then I guard my heart at a safe distance
Guard my heart at a safe distance

REFRAIN

PC
Friends you know how I try
Been sincere my whole life
But these snakes grew legs
and they fortified their bite
So tell me
How do you know who to trust?
How do you know who to love?

REFRAIN
Track Name: Cool Waltz
V1
Sordid advances
And why should I say no?
It's a winter's night we might get cold

BRIDGE
Some times it's better to be with someone wrong
Than be without anyone at all
X2

REFRAIN
When we kissed I admit I didn't feel anything
But I wasn't at a fault for a lack of trying
When we met I should have given you honest warning
I just can't stand to let anybody down

V2
We met like teens
In between the car seats
With a vacant embrace you took your leave

BRIDGE

REFRAIN X 2
Track Name: Away From Me
V1
I remember the front porch
Waiting for you to report
You'd always say there's no reason to worry
Where'd your heart go?
Did it go down the wrong road?
It knowingly took a left away from me

REFRAIN
Away from me

V2
Well I guess it goes to show
There's more out of than in control
All's fair in love and war
and I bleed easily
It will all work out
Next time may you pace about
With your love in another's mouth
Get away from me

REFRAIN X 2
