"Guardian" is the first single released off a forthcoming record from Joshua Thomas. It was recorded in May/June of 2016.


I, I will wait only, only for you
I, will stand hoping, quietly blue
All in all I think I know what you need
I know I rush like my hearts made to bleed
All in all I see the flowers in winter as a hopeful melody

I, I was a feather in the breeze
I fell on your doorstep from the east
All the doorsteps in the city were full
And you have a magic gravitational pull
All in all it took a year to hear the sound of our sweet bell toll

I'm not talking of pleasure in the night
I'm afraid of the same demon, afraid of the fright
I know what it's like to be a guardian locked up tight
I, I know what it's like, to be a guardian
To be a guardian
To be a guardian


released June 25, 2016
