One Year Anniversary of Graveyard

Candy Apple Blue - Graveyard (Matt Pop Mix)




To celebrate the one year anniversary of Graveyard and the special Matt Pop mix we decided to remaster the music video and put the song back up on iTunes for continued digital distribution.

We are so thrilled with how well the song has been received.  "Graveyard" is a quirky uptempo fun electropop / synthpop song about a girl who's lover left her.



Reviews:
"Love the synth back beat. Very retro feel. Also digging the musical refrain. Synched nicely with the uptempo synth." ~ Miami Suds

"Graveyard is definitely resurrecting the ghosts of Debbie Harry and Kim Wilde's 1980's past!" ~ Chris Rosvall

Carly Emerick rocking the Magic 8 Ball!

"Graveyard"

Words and Music by Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

You left your black candles burning
And your tarot cards on the floor!
You left the window wide open
You forgot to lock the door!

The way you ran out of here
I'd say it's perfectly clear that I've seen the last of you!
Did you evaporize? Now your immortalized...
Another mystery... without a clue

So let me tell you what I'm gonna do
Erect a temple in the absence of you!
Believe me baby oh where you left my heart was...

CHORUS:
In the Graveyard... full of plastic flowers
In the Graveyard... no after hours
In the Graveyard... I'm buried next to you!
I'm in the graveyard. (look out, look out)
I'm in the graveyard.

You left the portrait you painted up above the fireplace.
The answering machine message is gonna need erased!

You could have left me a note, or some Morrissey quote like...
"You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby!"
Then at least I would know you didn't love me so...
I could get over you... But I'm not through

So let me tell you what I'm gonna do
Erect a temple in the absence of you!
Believe me baby oh where you left my heart was...

(Repeat Chorus)

Spoken Break Down:
And now I lay you down to sleep...
I pray your soul will rot in hell

(Repeat Chorus)

Graveyard is from our debut album, "Prone To Panic!"
