about

Faint Peter is the indie-folk offering of Boston-born and Seattle-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joseph De Natale. Anchored by steady, finger-picked guitar and graceful instrumentation, De Natale’s plaintive voice soars amidst lush, cathedral-sized reverbs in his debut release, Redoubt.

Track Name: Wherever We Go
Wherever We Go

Wherever we go, birds in the wind will fly
The places we know, dropped in the belly of the sky
Tuning in time the strings of our past lives
Closing our eyes, the end is the ceaseless sigh
Track Name: The Well
The Well

All of my days
Working the well, working the well
Nobody knows
You couldn’t tell, you couldn’t tell
Where is the end of my rope?
It’s in my hands, in my own two hands
In my head and in my hope
It’s where I stand, it’s where I stand

Up from the bottom, up from the bottom
It’s coming up from the bottom, up from the bottom

I am alone
On a garden path, on a garden path
Trimming the hedges
They grow so fast, you know they grow so fast
And all of my nights
Working the well, working the well
So many secrets
I’ll never tell, no I’ll never tell

Up from the bottom, up from the bottom
It’s coming up from the bottom, up from the bottom
I bring it up from the bottom, up from the bottom
I bring it up from the bottom, up from the bottom
Track Name: Waiting
Waiting

I don’t wanna wait to find my love
I had it in the palm of my hands and now its gone
It was sturdy like an oakwood floor
It was pure like a troubadour
I don’t wanna wait to find my love

I don’t wanna wait to find my hero
I’m strong but I need someone to follow where I go
When the winter makes the world forget
And it burns my skin like a cigarette
I don’t wanna be without my love

And you are all I ever wanted and more
And your love is everything I waited for
I swear my heart is an open door
So please, please don’t keep me waiting anymore

I don’t wanna wait to go back home
And it feels like I’m running out of ways to be alone
I think on it every day
But it ain’t every easy to say
I don’t know when I’ll go home

And I don’t wanna wait to find my love
It’s like waiting for the sun to fall down from up above
I can see it in my mind
But if I look too hard I’ll only end up blind
So I gotta wait to find my love

But you were all I ever wanted and more
And your love is everything I waited for
I swear my heart is an open door
So please, please don’t keep me waiting anymore

And you are all I ever wanted and more
Track Name: Way to Die
Way To Die

The time flickers like the screen
That sits in front me
It burns to black like my eyes and a scene
Plays out in front of me

A forced and feeble man
Living in the shadows of a half-born plan
Mourning like a widow that last great stand of his
And if that ain’t a way to die
then I don’t know what is

The phone rings and a voice on the other line
Says I am not the one you counted coins for all this time
I am not a ghost
I have no name
I am you and you are I
and we are all the same

A forced and feeble man
Living in the shadows of a half-born plan
Mourning like a widow that last great stand of his
And if that ain’t a way to die
then I don’t know what is
Track Name: The Cure
The Cure

Let’s salt the wound it’s already too far gone
It’s a pink half moon hidden in your arms
I am defeated by the way you sing
You make a sound and silence everything
You pierce the clouds with every word
You bring the sun crash through the door
And what is more
I’ll never find the cure

You were an island hidden by the storm
I washed ashore and your beaches kept me warm
But that was long ago and now it feels
Like being drowned beneath the churning wheel
Like being ground under the chainman’s heel
The steel was deftly forged
And what is more
I’ll never find the cure

There was a moment when I found a thread
Into your heart, there was a part that I thought
Could be our story but instead
I am defeated by the way you sing
You make a sound and silence everything
Your will is bound within a shrinking ring
And even alcohol won’t ease the sting
And turning into dust seems just the thing
For seeking pardon from the holy king
You pierce the clouds with every word
You bring the sun crash through the door
And what is more
Track Name: Dear
Dear

Let down your hair
It doesn’t matter if they stare
Stand against the wall
Eventually someone will call

Don’t hang your head
Make a face at them instead
Put out your best
The universe will do the rest

Cause you are already beautiful
And you will always be beautiful to me
Track Name: What You Took
What You Took

A mirror and a razorblade
Are all that I have left for you
I didn’t leave a penny in that old penny jar
Or a stack of bills all sealed and paid in full
I didn’t leave a letter, handwritten and hidden
in the pages of your favorite book
I didn’t leave one damn thing
And I sold my wedding ring
I’m just making up for what you took

I didn’t leave the bottle of blood red wine
That you were saving for a rainy day
I didn’t leave an address or a telephone line
Or a map, so that you can find your way
I didn’t leave the photograph of the night that we first met
When you held me until I no longer shook
I didn’t leave it cause I know
You’ll miss it more than me and so
I’m just making up for what you took

What you took will never be the same
And I thought that I could change it just by calling out your name
But that feels so long ago
Now that I have stepped outside your door

You’ll find me gone when you wake up sometime
In the middle of the next century
And I’ll bet the man you’re sleeping with won’t even know a thing
About the fire that you felt with me
And maybe some cold night when you’re shivering all alone
You’ll peer out that front window and look
For someone to let in
To your cold heart once again
Someone holding out for what you took

Someone to set you free
But that someone, it ain’t me
I’ll be making up for what you took
Track Name: Texas
Texas

I’m headed down to Texas gonna find myself a girl
And try to make her fit into my heaven
Cause there’s gotta be somebody in this God forsaken world
That can find a way to put me back together
And I hear there’s lots of women there to make you feel
like you are on the right side of the tracks again
I’m headed down to Texas gonna find myself a girl
to release me from all that I have been

And maybe she will save my life
Maybe she will save my life

Headed down to Mexico and it don’t mean a thing
That I don’t speak a word of chicano
Cause I’ll find a dark-skinned beauty and present her with a ring
And put it on her little finger pronto
And if I’m lucky she won’t understand me when I sing about
the reasons I spend my whole night crying
I ain’t afraid of drug lords and I ain’t afraid of love
cause I ain’t living so I best get busy dying

And maybe she will save my life
Maybe she will save my life

Headed down to somewhere I can’t be here anymore
And if I lose myself along the way
I’ll reach into my memory and pull out what’s in store
And if it makes me smile, here’s what I will say:

Maybe she will save my life
Maybe she will save my life
Track Name: Ontario
Ontario

Sometimes we try
Too hard to find a way
To make tomorrow come today
And I realize
What you said is what you meant
I know there are no accidents

Stand up don’t cry
What is gone is gone for good
Despite the tears and sweat and blood
And I realize
Wings beat with the stereo
Fly out to Ontario

Death in time is perfect
Wonder when I’ll go
Fear and lies is religion
Cause only heaven knows

Breathe out, breathe in
Fill the space inside your chest
Something simple’s always best
Don’t shout, dig in
Wings beat with the stereo
Fly out to Ontario
