about

Nate Taylor Boston, Massachusetts

Wanderer, wonderer, journeyman, folksinger — Nate Taylor fuses story and experience on a quest for connection through music — to people, to nature, to truth. Often compared to Nick Drake for his resonant fingerpicking, Taylor paints an ethereal soundscape with his soaring vocals that implores a kind of reverence for the moment. ... more

Track Name: Choices (Live from Stroudsburg)
If I could live this life one thousand times
If I could till this soil again
If I could resurrect these dying days
I’d still choose to be with you in the end

And every morning when I wake I choose you
To be the one that’s by my side
And in the evening when I rest my burdens
I choose you above my pride

Now I could climb this mountain on my own
And I could be that solitary stone
And I could chase the days when I did roam
But I choose to create in you my home

If I could live this life just one more time
If I could till this soil again
If I could resurrect this dying day
I’d still choose to be with you in the end
Track Name: Grace (Live from Philadelphia)
And so the story goes, at least the part that has been written
Another leaves the fold, in search of all that's been forbidden
Crosses dale and mountainside, where he meets a maiden's eye,
oh love, what a harvest I have found, for I might love you

And so their story goes, at least the part that has been written
The lovers leave the fold, in search of all that's been forbidden
But love is not a young man's game, it takes grace and discipline,
oh love, what quandary I have found, for I don't love you

And that past is just the past, but you wanted love to last,
how did I grow insincere?
Not that I have done such wrong, that regret should fill this song,
but I was so cavalier
As I looked into your eyes, I saw love to my surprise,
and I used it out of fear
So the coward takes the gold, or maybe just my selfish soul,
oh I was so...

And so the story goes, at least the part that has been written
Good luck, young one
Good luck, young one
Tread softly
Track Name: Memories of Tomorrow (Live from Stroudsburg)
The firelight, it gleams in your eyes
The moonlight, a tantalizing disguise
But I hear, I love you
I know
I love you through the dawn

And I remember tomorrow like it was yesterday
The sacred stillness of the sun, the subtle silence of the moon
The restless beating of my heart against the solace of our living room
I remember tomorrow, such things will come
By your side, we are one

The twilight, it comes and it goes
But my life, it's as if I already know
When I hear, I love you
I know
I love you through the dawn

And I remember tomorrow like it was yesterday
The sacred stillness of your heart, the subtle silence of our vows
The patchwork fabric of our lives strung out before us here and now
I remember tomorrow, such things will come
By your side, we are one

And in the morning, I remember
Yes in the morning, I remember
Track Name: The Finer Things (Live from Brooklyn)
I am haunted by the specter of your love
What I knew I know no more
The serenity that fed me boils over
As I fail to reckon with what’s on the floor

And I still feel your love so real
But I feel fury for your love’s hurry

But please just let this cutting rage subside
Oh help me let the finer things abide
I don’t want to feel this one more day
I just always thought that you would stay
Track Name: In Dreams (Live from Brooklyn)
In my dreams, I am loved by you
You take my heart and make me whole
And if your love were reality
I think I could change the world
Oh, in my dreams

In my dreams we’re so happy
We’re smiling even as we fight
And when I pull your body close to me
I feel electric deep inside
Oh, in my dreams

In my dreams, I’m down on my knee
And in your eyes I see my life
The words we share, oh what beauty
I can’t believe you’ll be my wife
Oh, in my dreams

In my dreams we’re old and wrinkled
But deep inside we’re still so young
We’ve crossed a million miles together
Oh damn we’ve had such fun
Oh, in my dreams

In my dreams, I am loved by you
You take my heart and make me whole
And if my dreams were reality
There’d be such peace down in my soul
