about

Our debut album is the culmination of years of work. Every song on the album is close to our hearts, and as far as we're concerned it's all killer and no filler! It's classic rock at it's best, with touches of country, blues, alternative and Americana.

Track Name: Woman
April fields, the sun in your hair
We’ve been here now forever I swear
I can’t believe that I’ve only known you a day

A summer breeze, a smile in the crowd
I saw your eyes they were saying out loud
You’ll be here when all this is gone long ago

Woman won’t you remember to watch over me?

I can see to some distant time
Woman tell me you’ll always be mine
Like the day when we took our vows, feel the same

Woman won’t you remember to watch over me?

And I want you to know how I feel inside
I want you to find what I cannot hide
I need you to be there to catch my fall
Pick me up when I’m feeling small
Feel my heart when it’s reaching out to you

Woman won’t you remember to watch over me?
Track Name: Over You
Woke up in the morning I could hear the highway calling out my name
Thoughts are roaming through my head, the wind will help me blow it all away
All my love I gave to you, you wouldn’t see and then you let me go
Now I’m driving down the road in search of answers to the questions but I know

Over you

Flying through the plains out in the distance the mountains touch the sky
I hope I never see that little town again till the day I die
Seems like it was yesterday you swore to me your everlasting love
Now the afternoon is dying with the sun into the lonely sky above

Over you

Moving over Couer D’Alene the strangest feeling crept into my heart
Maybe time and distance were the only way to break my love apart
Freedom coming over me the future is the road that lies ahead
And as I stand above the waves I finally realize that what I felt is dead

I’m over you
Track Name: Signs
I played a waiting game where I waste my time
I let my dreams die young ‘cause I misread the signs
Signs it might be over, signs I’m not so young, I’m not so young

He was a mountain boy, there he walked the line
He’ll stay forever young, he did not read the signs
Signs within the weather, signs this is the end, you know it was his end

War was a trial by fire, falling from the skies
War would not break his pride, because he read the signs
Signs it could not last long, he knew they would now overcome
The faithful held their heads high
His homeland would endure, he knew they would endure

So I quit my waiting game and I don’t waste no time
I keep my dreams alive and now I read the signs
Track Name: Dead Man
I’m a dead man, hangin’ from the old oak tree
And there ain’t nobody higher as far as I can see

I’m a dead man, layin’ on the side of the road
I got me no more worries, don’t carry no heavy load

And the live man, he ain’t got nothin’ over me

I’m a dead man, washed up on the shore
No time left to wonder which side won the war

And the live man, he ain’t got nothin’ over me

I’m a dead man, but you can’t take my soul
Track Name: Black River
I've been riding hard toward the borderline, I am a wanted man
From San Antonio across the Eagle Pass, down to the Rio Grande
Oh black river you stand in front of me on a moonlit night
If I don't get across, they'll hang me up high
I may be guilty but I'm not ready to die

For three days now I've been running for my life, posse right on my tail
Just this morning ran my horse into the ground, back there along the trail
It was nightfall when I fell upon the bank, along the riverside
Oh black river, so deep and so wide
And I know my freedom lies on the other side

If I could go back to yesterday, if I could turn back the time
I would take it back and, they would still be breathing
They would still be alive

No time to contemplate, no place to hide, riders on the ridgeline
I can see them, silhouettes in the night, got to make up my mind
Oh black river you stand in front of me on a moonlit night
If I don't get across, they'll hang me up high
And I don't know if I can swim to the other side

She was all my hopes and dreams, to take her for my wife
She promised love forever, but I found them together
In a rage I took their lives
Track Name: I Will Be Free
Born in the hills with a mind that could not breathe
He was trapped in a life of a million postwar dreams
He would sit at night and plan the great escape
And no circumstance would ever seal his fate

Well he grew up strong in a country filled with fear
And he missed the draft ‘cause he didn’t have a year
And it blew his mind how nobody else could see
That there’s more to life than mediocrity

And the mountains reach into the sky
The river flows out through the night
The forest sways with every breeze
I long to be in foreign seas
I will be free
No one in the world puts chains on me
I will be free

Born in the hills in the winter of ’54
And raised by the firelight and the stories from the war
Well he gave 'em hell, but the scars won’t go away
And he knew back then there was no way he could stay

And the mountains reach into the sky
The river flows out through the night
The forest sways with every breeze
I long to be in foreign seas
I will be free
No one in the world puts chains on me
I will be free
Track Name: Everything is New
We were young the day I fell into the sun
Something down inside of me was tellin’ me and I knew you were the one
It was time for me to step into the light
I asked you for your name and when you smiled at me I knew that I was right
Everything was right

You know we’re free to live our lives the way we please
Nothing is impossible, with you life is just like a summer breeze
Take my hand, we’ll walk to together in the sand
We’ll dress in white and drink the wine, I’ll take a vow to always be your man
I’ll always be your man

I can see the future right in front of me
We’ll build a home to call our own and fill it full of joy and harmony
You know he’ll come, with curls and eyes of ocean blue
Running free in the summer sun, discovering the world we know is new
Everything is new
Track Name: Let It Go
She was born an August summer day
Just a child confused by faith
Growing up, she always felt the guilt
If God is love, why do I fear?

Does your mind go back in search of some redemption?
Can you dispossess your past?
Does that voice inside ask you why you suffer?
Let it go

Darkness fell, she almost lost it all
She faced her hell, she chose to live
She realized the answer to it all
The path of life is paved by love

Does your mind go back in search of some redemption?
Can you dispossess your past?
Does that voice inside ask you why you suffer?
Let it go
Track Name: Hey Sister
You fly into the night to find a future
You can never know unless you try
No more time to waste anticipating a change
You've come so far and still you're moving forward
Now it's time to spread your wings and fly
I have no doubt you'll make it on your journey to the sky

Hey sister where you going?
Do you think you'll get there soon?
You must know that there's an empty space you left here
Oh and I fear that you won't be home soon

Do you recall a time when we were children
Running through the fields and feeling free?
It sure did seem those days would last forever, no end
Now we're grown but inside we're still children
Struggling with the burdens of our lives
But you will never lose that fire burning in your eyes

Hey sister where you going?
Do you think you'll get there soon?
You must know that there's an empty space you left here
Oh and I fear that you won't be home soon

From Arkansas to Southern California
The years went by and brought impending change
We moved across the world to lay our roots down, far away
Well you know that your fate is what you make it
And making it meant leaving us behind
But don't forget to keep us at the center of your heart

Hey sister have you gone now?
Do you think you'll be back soon?
Don't you know that there's an empty space you left here
Oh and I fear that you won't be home soon
Track Name: Lilac Wine
A voice just like lilac wine
I heard it through the trees
And eyes holding pain inside
Lost on stormy seas

Time quickly passed us by
She reached out to the stars
Was then that she cried for me
She loved me from afar

She said she loved me and I believed her
She helped me cure my pain and sorrow

A life in the city lights
I felt so out of place
Nights drunk on lilac wine
I could not keep the pace

She said she loved me and I believed her
She helped me cure my pain and sorrow
I tried to love her, tried to be there
I could not hold on for long, she let me go

A voice just like lilac wine
I hear it in my dreams
Track Name: The Circle
There's a circle in the distance
Megaliths so high reach into the sky
And the tribes all come together
To celebrate as one, waiting for the sun

Communion with the heavens
August stars of light coursing through the night
And the gods all dance above them
Life will carry on, reborn with the dawn

They lived their lives by the Earth and sky
Wisdom lost to the sands of time

Selfish and deluded
Spreading war and dearth, masters of the Earth
And what will we leave our children
If we cut down all the trees, pollute the air they breathe?

Illusions of progression
Towers built so high, they're blotting out the sky
And where are all the heroes?
Brother can't you see it's up to you and me?

And who do we think we are?
Take us back 'cause we've gone too far

Take us back the way we've come
To the circle, to hail the rising sun
Take us back where we belong
In the circle we join our hands as one

Who do we think we are?
Take us back 'cause we've gone too far
Track Name: The Power of the Moment
Live your life here and now
Never know what time allows
So we live like butterflies
Tomorrow we may die
Now’s the time to fly

Leave behind memory
Anger, hate, jealousy
Release your bird of soul
Wings of white peaceful flow
Oh there she goes

The power of the moment, the truth and light inside
