Kyle Neal is an American tour de force, capturing a snapshot of the entire country's tragic depths and persistent hope through one man's personal struggles. Kyle has been writing music since he was 14 and his latest EP, Morning Light, shows the kind of maturity that can only come from having toured coast to coast experimenting with everything from love to alcohol to Jesus Christ. ... more

Track Name: A Picture of Hell
Wakin on an empty street
Head hung low she set her feet
Down into the hills
Southbound and steady still

Wadin through the tangled vine
With hunger pangs on her mind
When she stumbled on a man
And she shook the Devil’s hand

Oh
It seemed the gates of Hell were standing open wide
Oh
And the streets that led to the lake of fire
Oh
They were lovely and the blind birds sang their songs
They sang their songs and Charlie sang along

The Devil made a handsome feast
When Jacob came to rest his feet
With empty hands,
With empty hands

He took her down to the lake
He took her down and he did make
Her finally feel at home
Finally at home

Oh
It seemed the gates of Hell were standing open wide
Oh
And the streets that led to the lake of fire
Oh
They were lovely and the blind birds sang their songs
They sang their songs

And Charlie sang along

She fell asleep with his hand
Wrapped in hers, she couldn’t stand
To look him in the eye
She didn’t say goodbye
Track Name: Morning Light
Restless, these words fell off my tongue
Patient, you saw what could be done
I was gone, you could smell it on my breath
But I had never been so sure before

Wakin’ with your hand wrapped up in mine
Softly, while you slept I took my time
To recall the words that I had said when
I was gone, I laid my head back down and smiled

Cause you were my morning light
Remindin’ me, I’m still alive
Oh

Timeless I’d lay atop your bed
Hangin on every word you said
You were there to cover me when I had
Lost my mind. You rolled me over on my side

Cause you were my morning light
Remindin’ me, I’m still alive

Cause you were my morning light
Remindin’ me, I’m still alive

Cause you were my morning light
Remindin’ me, I’m still alive
Track Name: When You Come Down
I don’t know to where she goes but Hell
I figure she’ll be home by sunrise
Dirty with the scent of sex and cocaine
She climbs the steps of the high rise

Yes I do, girl I love you
And I’ll be here when you come down

She climbs those steps just like the words she uses
To tell me she was sorry
And her dress was painted with the blood of Jesus
And her lonesome eyes were heavy

Yes I do, girl I love you
And I’ll be here

She used the same words as the week before
Except this time slurred and broke to pieces
I let her in and opened up the window
She’d escape out of come sundown

Yes I do, girl I love you
And I’ll be here when you come down
Track Name: Let You Go
I watched you pull the thread that hung below
The hem of everything you’d grown to know
You pulled it with a sigh
Said everything must die
I watched you pull the thread and let it go

Our youth was spent desperate to see
The things that lay just barely underneath
The layers of our minds
That fall away in time
So we filled our little brains and tried to see

I couldn’t tell you where we were trying to go
So I held your hand and figured that we’d know
When we’d arrived
At our chosen time
I’d kiss your mouth, and I’d let you go

Your voice was sweet and it didn’t betray
The words you used when you said you couldn’t stay
You said life was just a game
That could never stay the same
So I lit a smoke and watched you drive away

I couldn’t tell you where we were trying to go
So I held your hand and figured that we’d know
When we’d arrived
At our chosen time
I’d kiss your mouth, and I’d let you go

And I held you in the back of my mind
As my body felt the wrath of father time
But as I slowly decay
You’ll never age a day
Cause I held you in the back of my mind
Track Name: Made the Devil Proud
Well the night it gave me something
The morning always seems to take away
Elegance and decadence
Replaced by broken bottles on the floor
And I took all I could from the moonlight
Till the morning came and knocked at my door

Waiting on a sunrise
Like I’m waiting on a sentence
For an ill-intentioned life

Well I met you in another life
When my eyes were wide and my feet were on the ground
Yeah you said you’d never leave me
Then you kissed my face and turned yourself around
And these days I can’t remember how your face looks
And I’m waiting where you left me to be found

Waiting on a sunrise
Like I’m waiting on a sentence
For an ill-intentioned life
Darling we are going down
But if hell is what is waiting
At least we made the devil proud

All I wanted was to be
A man that you’d be proud to see
But I found comfort in the moonlight
At the least the moonlight will never leave

Waiting on a sunrise
Like I’m waiting on a sentence
For an ill-intentioned life
Darling we are going down
But if hell is what is waiting
At least we made the devil proud

Waiting on a sunrise
Like I’m waiting on a sentence
For an ill-intentioned life
Darling we are going down
But if hell is what is waiting
At least we made the devil proud
