about

The Great American Asheville, North Carolina

Based out of Asheville, NC, The Great American began in 2015 as a group of both longtime and lifelong friends. As a four piece group of established musicians, TGA boasts one bass, one guitar, percussion and a vocal. When formed, their motive was to strip down and simplify while still producing an elephantine sound that audiences won't forget. ... more

Track Name: Elise
Dear Elise your sweet perfume
It lingers in my room
Sweet Elise your lipstick stains
And that color of red it never fade

You walk around town with your head held high
The men they stare when you walk on by
Your like a thief in the dead of night
But I'm not crying
I'm not crying

Dear Elise you want him too
You can have him here and lie as you do
I've made you a parting gift and
Its made of stone, with your names on it,
and the words forevermore

Young Elise eyes of envy green
You want every man you have ever seen
Naive Elise long hair of gold
You think you'll never grow old

You can have my man I'm not crying
You and him forever you can stop trying
You and him together six feet underground

You can have my man I'm not crying
You and him forever you can stop trying
You and him together six feet underground

Dear Elise you want him too
You can have him here and lie as you do
I've made you a parting gift and
Its made of stone, with your names on it,
and the words Rest In Peace
Track Name: Liar, Liar
Liar liar souls on fire
You got a habit to break
Liar liar souls on fire
You got a habit to break

I believe in you like the man in the moon
and like the sandman who comes at night
Liar liar souls on fire
Find another fool to take

I need you like a hole on my shoe
I need you like a rainy day in June
I'm through, ha, ya I'll be ok
Cause you, your gonna burn anyway

I like you like a cut from a knife
I like you cause your always right
I'm through, ha, ya ill be ok
Cause you, your gonna burn anyway

I believe you like the creep at door
I believe you like two and three make four
I'm through, ya I'll be ok
Cause you, your gonna burn anyway
Track Name: Here's to Another
Life seems to hard without it
My nights are consumed around it
Even though I try
I can't deny the fact that I feel like I might die Without it

Things seem clearer through the end of the bottle
I don't want to, but the drink says why bother
I don't want to lose control
but the bottle owns my soul
And it's speaking to me out loud,
So Here's to another

We've been in a love hate relationship for many years
When I try to quit you I only see my many fears
And when I stop, I only withdrawal again
And end up on the floor crawling back to you

The bottles likes it when I'm isolated
When I take a break, he becomes frustrated
When I pull back but the bottle pulls me in again
I have no will to fight and start over again
Track Name: Love Song
I need a love that will pull through wreckage
I need love that will pull me out of flames
I need a love that will put back the pieces
I need a love to jump start this heart again
Jump start my heart

I am a fighter but I'm barely breathing
I have taken on the task of trying to heal
I've been hiding while I've been patiently waiting for someone
For someone

I need a love that will pull through wreckage
I need love that will pull me out of flames
I need a love that will put back the pieces
I need a love to jump start this heart again
Jump start my heart
Jump start my heart again

Crawl through the wreckage
Crawl through the wreckage
Crawl through the wreckage

I am a fighter but I'm barely breathing
I have taken on the task of trying to heal
I've been hiding while I've been patiently waiting for someone
For someone

Crawl through the wreckage
Crawl through the wreckage
Crawl through the wreckage

Crawl through the wreckage
Crawl through the wreckage
Crawl through the wreckage

Jump start this heart again
Track Name: Weston
I got some crazy friends in Weston
Lock up for their lives
I like visit them on the frequent
Even on a dark foggy night

Oh cause seeing them in their ghostly forms
It makes me feel more alive
Cause one thing you don't know about them
Guess what, they've all died

Oh cause in this other world they live,
It makes ours seem so much better
Ooooh and this how is how I keep my life my life,
I keep it all together, we're birds of a feathers
Comparing my life with their forever

My friends they may be from the unknown
But they've got a lot to say
Shady figures come to light
As they whisper in my ear at night

They ask if I want to join their lives
But I say No I don't die
They said they I could be their daily friend
And we would live in neverland
I don't know anymore
so I ran and closed the dark door
But by then it was to late
So I'm stuck forevermore place

I got some crazy friends in Weston
Lock up for their lives
I used to visit them on the frequent
Until they locked me up for my life
Track Name: Ghost in the Mirror
Who are you ghost in the mirror
I don't know who you are
It may be just the liquor
But will you take me to the dark
Take me to the dark

I sleep with my eyes wide open
Afraid to see what's in my dreams
The light of morning stings my eyes
Will you let me see what you see
Take me to the dark

Cause lost my way a long time go
Running from the past and pain
My breathing is becoming short
Ghost in the mirror
Won't you call my name

This life is strangely dim
My path has had little light
What lies behind that mirror is waiting
A new way of seeing life

Take me to the dark
