about

The Native Sibling Seattle, Washington

The Brother-Sister duo have been playing music independently since they were children. Only after playing together at a pub in Ireland did they realize that their musical aspirations had drawn close to the same path. After the death of their mother, The Native Sibling did a lot of soul searching that is encapsulated in their debut album "Letters Kept to Ourselves." ... more

Track Name: Darkest of Night Skies
One cool autumn night lying in the woods held by the fire
Flames staring at your face
Hollowing your eyes telling what you aspire

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Chorus
Have we met here in the passing
Led here by all happenstance
Here I’m walking under darkest
Darkest of the night skies
Darkest of the night skies

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Family try to understand
Buried in your hand held close beside you
Care taken in the North
Follow what is torn in the lows we pass through.

Chorus

Have we met here once forthcoming
Noted that the stars aligned
What is now and all that’s happened
We’re dancing under the night sky
Darkest of the night sky

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Dancing under the night sky
Dancing under the night sky
Dancing under the night sky

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Darkest of the night skies
Darkest of the night skies
Track Name: Carry You
I see where you’ve been
Stuck in your doubt
I know where you are and I’m coming to bail you out

Engulfed in your sin
And what you have known
I know where you are and I’m coming to carry you home

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

In comfort I hold
Unstable at most
Leading to choices I knew I would later disown
They won’t go on their own and pearls on my brow
Work left in my hands if only I could use them now

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

All of the troubles that you push aside now
Are no longer your stories to tell
All of the words that never left your mouth
Are no longer what’s holding you down

All of the troubles that you push aside now
Are no longer your stories to tell
All of the words that never left your mouth
Are no longer what’s holding you down

I’ll carry you home
I’ll carry you home
Track Name: Here With Me
Every night when I wake up
A thought never could be
Sometimes then I make up
That you’re right here with me
Right here with me

Chorus
Any morning could be your final flight
When it’s over the sun may never rise
Time will take us when we run the river dry
You’re right here with me
Right here with me

Clock calls it a new day
Dirt roads and the gray skies
Sparrow sings us through heartbreak
When you’re right here with me
Right here with me

Chorus

Take it fast
Take it with out aim
Moving slow, but its all the same
Take it easy
Oh, there’s no one to blame
When you’re right here with me
Right here with me

Chorus
Track Name: Let The Water Rise
Let the water rise, rise and suffocate the cave
Teardrop from your eyes, eyes hit the shore like a wave
Let the water fall, fall to a tower fully grown
Your words hit the wall, wall held your worries unknown.

Hold your teeth closed, close call from underneath
I hear the wind blow your song, so short so sweet
Let the water rise, rise fill the valley below
Covering the walls, bury worries with bone

Stay alive
Oh, oh hold yourself
Page we read to uphold itself
Stay tonight
Oh, oh hold yourself

Stay alive
Track Name: Evening's Wake
As the glaze covers my eyes
A corner goes unrecognized
Walking down the street alone

By what means we try to gain
Set the table say our grace
For those who know will know that they’re needed

Never known a man too proud to say it
It’s true we keep them in our reach
For the times when we will know that we need them

Chorus
There is hope that it will change
With the turning of another day
I won’t go back, back to them

With the weight of winter’s hint
We try to so hard to bury it
I won’t go back, back to them
Until the evening awakes

Oh, oh.
Oh, oh.

And I know now to refrain
From all I had once meant to say
For written words hold proof to those who read them

Chorus

With the fear you never meant
You try to hard to buy it
I won’t go back, back to them
Until the evening awakes.

Oh, oh.
Oh, oh.

I won’t go back, back to them
Until the evening awakes.
Track Name: Right Here For You
Holding in the sky you’ll see light fading in the east
Empty house we’ll pack our bags
Only memories at last

Oh, I’m right here for you
Oh, there’s nothing left to see
Oh, I’m right here for you
There’s a stranger next to me

The road ahead may have its bends
We’re singing to the ode
There are no plans that lay unchanged
Lead to many of unknowns

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Place to Rest / Keep on Running
Its been some time since I’ve seen you
An embrace filled with the comfort of those well known
You suffered something of the heart that you told me
But those times they were twofold

Chorus

How long must we wait until we know
How long must we talk before one of us goes
How long must I search for truth some place to rest my soul
You kept on running honey, its what you know

You’re depending on the past now we’ve seen it
Only half learned from what we’re told
As one marks one decision
My body casts its shadows

Chorus

Keep on running, honey
Keep on running, honey
Keep on running, honey
Its what you know

Keep on running, honey
Keep on running, honey
Keep on running, honey
Its what you know
Track Name: Oh, Sing
Evenings we have gathered here
Comfort songs, rows and pairs
To hear the tales of old
Lessons learned again retold

Chorus
Oh, sing
Sing my soul
As all the years foretold
To hear the rings that change
Oh, sing
Oh, sing my soul

Waters that had once been clear
Are darker now, divert my stare
Visions came in the night
Never seen from my own eyes

Chorus

When I come back come back
Will you be there be there

When I come back come back
Will you be there be there

Chorus
Track Name: Skin & Bone
As our breath lies with no amends
Rivers that run true
Can’t wait wash these hands

Skin and bone
Last storm blows
Humble

Oh, oh.
Oh, oh.

Rows for miles seems to leave content
Even the spaces
Beginning to the end

Skin and bone
Last storm blows
Humble

Oh, oh.
Oh, oh.
Oh, oh.

Letters we kept to ourselves
Under snow will only dwell

Oh, oh.
Oh, oh.
Oh, oh.
Track Name: All Remains
Sleeping with a ghost inside you
Falling of the ashes feels new
Mama kept you all a secret
To mention it would break to keep it

All, all remains
All, all remains

Whisper to me ever softly
Singing birds we cannot see
Let me stay inside your garden
Remember only what it has been

All, all remains
All, all remains

Promises the sun shines for me
Trickle from the tall trees
Father, daughter hold up tightly
Close your eyes breath so lightly

All, all remains
All, all remians
