about

The Ruffled Feathers Vancouver, British Columbia

Taking inspiration from the likes of Beirut, The Arcade Fire, and Belle and Sebastian, the band weaves fables of revolution, love stories, and cities away from home. Listeners expecting conventional guitar-driven indie-pop will find themselves swept into complex arrangements of trumpets and mandolins instead. ... more

Track Name: It Doesn't Last
How did we get
So far from where we started?
History fades, place to place
Will I find my destination?

I’d choose going with you
If you asked, if you asked
What do I have to prove?
Never going back
It’s the past. It doesn’t last

What would it take
To forget where I've been?
A crowd of memories
Chases me around

I’d choose going with you
if you asked, if you asked
What do I have to prove?
Never going back
It’s the past. It doesn't last
Track Name: Little Sister
I wonder why all my heroes have died
Crazy, alone, or screaming in the night
Is it in me lord? Is it in me too?
Don’t let it get from me to you

Well I find myself back in the valley of my youth
But the rolling waves won’t let me
See into the bottom of the blue
It’s simple without you

Little sister don’t let the world get you down
Dream of the sky from the underground
There’s beauty in the wasteland if you look around
And one day you’re bound to be found

Well I find myself leaving the valley of my youth
But your words I cannot swallow
Though I chew and chew and chew
Are you ever coming back?
You’ve been absent my whole life

Tell me what you’re thinking about
There’s no easy answer
Tell me what you know about me
And when will my speech be free

Tell me what you’re thinking about
There’s no easy answer
Tell me what you know about me
And when will my speech be free

Little Sister
There’s hope for you
Keep asking questions
And you’ll find the truth

Tell me what you’re thinking about
There’s no easy answer
Tell me what you know about me
And when will my speech be free

Tell me what you’re thinking about
There’s no easy answer
Tell me what you know about me
Little sister it’s you and me
Track Name: Tough Love
When I whisper you goodnight
I dream a dream of getting it right
For the final time of so many mistakes
You should leave me behind I keep making you wait

Doesn’t seem quite fair that we never had the time
For me to belong to you and for you to be mine
I was breaking your heart while my own fell to pieces
Now I’m picking up the mess, time will heal the rest

Every time that I turned away
I knew if I stayed we’d never be the same
Knowing you was finding me and choosing a destiny
Before I knew the facts now there’s no turning back!
Track Name: Siberian Springtime
The thaw of the ice
And the melting of snow
I called you twice
And twice you said no

The skies are turning grey
Our love will melt away
A new season is coming
And who knows what it will bring

No one is smiling
It’s the time for divorce
When unhappy couples
Find new lovers once more
And the streets are all weeping
Tracking mud on the floor
Siberian springtime
Siberian spring

Everyone is my Brother
Everyone is my friend
But my lover has left me and I’ll never see
My daughter again

Siberian Spring time
It’s cruel and its kind
It gives back what it takes from you
Most of the time

Siberian springtime
Siberian spring
Siberian springtime
Siberian spring

Siberian springtime
Siberian spring
Siberian springtime
Siberian spring
