about

Although we set out to make a Folk album I long for the silence leans towards Country Rock. Funny that.
We hope you like it as much as we did making it for you..

Track Name: The road
I CAN’T HANG AROUND MUCH LONGER
RESTLESS HEART TELLS ME TO GO
WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS I WONDER
IF I STAY ILL NEVER KNOW

GONNA TIE MY BOOTS START WALKING
AS FAR AS THE OLD LEGS WILL GO
ILL GET TIRED BUT I AINT STOPPING
'TILL I FIND A WAY BACK HOME

GONNA TRAVEL DOWN THIS ROAD
WHEREVER IT TAKES ME
ONLY GOD KNOWS WHERE I AM GOING
I GUESS IT’S BEST TO NOT KNOWING

YOU CAN’T HOLD ON TO THE PAST
EVERYTHING KEEPS ON CHANGING
YOU LEARN THAT NOTHING’S GONNA LAST
SOMEDAY IT’S GONNA BE RAINING

GONNA TRAVEL DOWN THIS ROAD
WHEREVER IT TAKES ME
ONLY GOD KNOWS WHERE I AM GOING
I GUESS IT’S BEST TO NOT KNOWING

DON’T TRY AND HOLD ME BACK
I REALLY GOTTA GO
KEEP MOVING AHEAD
DEEP DOWN YOU KNOW

GONNA TRAVEL DOWN THIS ROAD
WHEREVER IT TAKES ME
ONLY GOD KNOWS WHERE I AM GOING
I GUESS IT’S BEST TO NOT KNOWING

GONNA TRAVEL DOWN THIS ROAD
WHEREVER IT TAKES ME
AND I WONDER WHAT I FIND
TO EASE THE HURTING
Track Name: I long for the silence
I ALWAYS BEEN DRAWN TO THE DARKNESS
WERE SURROUNDED BY DEATH & DECAY
IF I HAD TO CHOSE A SEASON
I’LL PICK WINTER ANY DAY

I WEAR BLACK IN THE HEAT OF SUMMER
AND I LONG FOR AUTUMN TO COME
I CANT WAIT FOR THE LEAVES TO START DYING
LEAST I KNOW IT WONT BE LONG

I LONG FOR THE SILENCE
TO WRAP ME IN IT'S CLOAK
WHEN WE LET GO AND START FALLING
THROUGH SPACE AND TIME WE FLOAT

YOU LEARN THAT NOTHING REALLY MATTERS
THERE’S NOTHING TO GAIN
EVERYTHING WE’RE TRYING
IS GONNA BE IN VAIN
Track Name: It won't go away
YOU CAN RUN TO THE END OF THE WORLD
BURRY THE PAST BENEATH A MOUNTAIN OF DIRT ¬¬
HIDING WHERE NOONE KNOWS YOUR NAME
EVERYTHING (YOU TRY) IS GONNA BE IN VAIN

IT WON’T GO WAY
YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE
IT WON’T GO AWAY
NO MATTER HOW YOU TRY
IT WON’T GO WAY
IT’LL HAUNT YOU TILL YOU DIE
IT WON’T GO AWAY
YOU GOT NOWHERE LEFT TO HIDE

EVERYMAN GOT HIS BATTLES TO FIGHT
DEMONS TO WRESTLE IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT
WE’RE BORN INTO THIS WORLD AND WE DIE ALONE
WERE ONLY HUMAN MADE OF FLESH AND BONE

YOU CAN’T KEEP GOING LIKE YOU USED TO (DO)
GOTTA STOP AND FACE WHAT’S HAUNTING YOU
TIME TO DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND
Track Name: I can't promise you anything
I CANT PROMISE YOU ANYTHING
DON’T KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE’LL BRING
I WON’T GIVE YOU NO GUARANTEES
WHAT WILL BE WILL BE

DON’T KNOW WHAT I AM GONNA DO
KEEP SEARCHING FOR CLUES
MAKE IT UP AS WE GO ALONG
YOU GOTTA BE STRONG

I CAN’T PROMISE YOU ANYTHING BABE

THROWN INTO THIS LIFE
WE STRUGGLE AND STRIVE
TIME SLIPS THROUGH YOUR HANDS
GUESS WE NEVER UNDERSTAND

LIFE KNOCKS YOU ABOUT
THERE IS NO EASY WAY OUT
YOU CAN NEVER BE TO SURE
KEEP COMING BACK FOR MORE

I CAN’T PROMISE YOU ANYTHING
DON’T KNOW WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING
LIFE’S ONE CRAZY RIDE
IT’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
Track Name: The blues will catch you
IT DON’T MATTER HOW FAR YOU’VE COME
WHERE YOU BEEN AND WHAT YOU DONE
SOME THINGS YOU LOSE SOME THINGS YOU FIND
THE BLUES WILL CATCH YOU EVERY TIME

MAKES NO DIFFERENCE HOW HARD YOU TRY
IF YOUR LAYING LOW OR FLYING HIGH
THIS WORLD MAY BREAK YOU OR TREAT YOU KIND
THE BLUES..

YOU CAN RUN AND YOU CANT HIDE
KEEP THE FAITH ON YOUR SIDE
WAVE A WHITE FLAG PUT UP A FIGHT
THE BLUES..

IT DON’T MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU FALL
YOU CAN KICK YOR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL
TRY AND FIND PIECE OF MIND
BLUES ….
Track Name: The mountain
SOME DAYS IT ALL SEEMS TOO MUCH
BEEN LEANING TOO HARD ON SOME KIND OF CRUTCH
TIME TO DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND
AND START OVER AGAIN

I LONGS FOR PEACE AND QUIET
DON’T WANT TO SEE NOONE TODAY
GONNA WALK RIGHT UP THAT MOUNTAIN
TO CHASE/AND SEND THE BLUES AWAY

GONNA TAKE A TIME OUT TODAY
ALL MY TROUBLES JUST HAVE TO WAIT
GONNA WALK RIGHT OUT THE DOOR
AINT GONNA PLAY THIS GAME NO MORE

SO MUCH NOISE IN THIS WORLD
EVERYONES TALKING NOONE’S GETTING HEARD
MAYBE IM JUST GETTING BORED
CANT GO ON LIKE BEFORE
Track Name: Dreamers & fools
MISFITS AND WEIRDOS
YOU NEVERE FIT IN
ARTISTS AND WRITERS
DONT ACCEPT THE WORLD AS IT IS

ALL YOU OUTSIDERS
YOUR WINGS CANT BE CUT
YOU NEVER SELL YOUR SOUL
NO MATTER WHAT

ALL YOU BROKEN HEARTED
TRY TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE DAY
CAN’T SEE NO POINT IN LIVING
WANNA THROW IT ALL AWAY

ALL YOU DREAMERS AND FOOLS
THIS SONGS FOR YOU
MAY THE WORLD EMBRACE
YOUR POINT OF VIEW
ALL YOU CRAZY KIDS
NEVER CHANGE YOUR WAYS
MAY YOU KEEP ON SEARCHING
TILL THE END OF YOUR DAYS
Track Name: Makes no difference
YOU WONDER WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
THINGS YOU SHOULD’VE DONE DIFFERENT
IT ‘S NOT LIKE YOU DIDN’T TRY
YOU’LL NEVER KNOW THE REASON WHY
YOU’LL NEVER KNOW THE REASON WHY

SOME GROW OLD SOME DIE YOUNG
PLENTY SONGS REMAIN UNSUNG
WE KEEP ON FIGHTING TO THE END
GUESS IT ALL MAKES NO DIFFERENCE

YOU COULD HAVE GONE ALL THE WAY
BUT YOUR STILL WAITING FOR YOUR LUCKY DAY
SOMEHOW YOU NEVER MADE IT TO THE TOP
YOUR RECORDS GATHER DUST IN THE JUNK SHOPS

MAYBE YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT
PERHAPS IT’S JUST THE WAY IT IS
YOUR DREAM TAKES ANOTHER HIT
YOUR ABOUT TO THROW A FIT
Track Name: World gone crazy
THE WORLD’S GONE CRAZY
COME AND HOLD ME BABY
HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT
TOO MUCH PAIN AND SUFFERING
STRIVE AND STRUGGLING
WIPE THE TEARS FROM YOUR EYES

WHEN YOUR WORLD LIES IN TATTERS
LOVE IS ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS
HUSH MY BABY DON’T YOU CRY
EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT

WE WILL ALWAYS SEEK THE TRUTH
NEVER STRAY FROM THE PATH WE CHOOSE
I’LL BE RIGHT HERE BY YOUR SIDE
DON’T HANG YOUR HEAD AND CRY

WE GOTTA BE STRONG
TELL RIGHT FROM WRONG
AINT GONNA LIVE IN FEAR
I RATHER DIE RIGHT HERE
Track Name: Wipe the slate clean
time to pick up the pieces and wipe the slate clean
let go of the anger that lingers on still
you been burnt before you get burned again
pick up the pieces and start over my friend

sometimes it seems easier just to lay down and die
can’t find one good reason half worth a try
we got this life to live the best that we can
we’ll be gone a long time after the end

people you know don’t give a damn
everybody's seeking attention
make believe they say what they mean
maybe its time to wipe the slave clean
