about

This collection of songs was recorded, mixed and mastered during a very wet and cold pacific Northwest winter season. We chose the name 'Volume One' because we feel that each song tells a separate story. Interpret the music, and let it take you someplace you long to be. Please share with those you love. Peace.

Track Name: Without Your Love
Without Your Love (Lindsay, J.)

I've got the greatest love
Lends herself to my memory
She's got the deepest place in my heart

I've got a wicked heart
She can play the only part
Tossing and turning all night long

Falling down and all around
and I can't hold on
I should be flying but I'm down here on the ground
Reaching back again, she knocks the breath out of me
I'm nothing without your love

(Chorus)
I'm nothing without your love
I'm nothing without your love
I'm nothing without your love
Love

I'm falling out of windows and crashing through the glass
Running low on everything and pulling out the last
Breaking all the rules not taking any questions
I'm leaning out too far, a trick of my invention

I've got the greatest love
Lends herself to my memory
She's got the deepest place in my heart

I've got a wicked heart
She can play the only part
I'm nothing without your love...

Chorus
Track Name: Show Me The Way
Show Me The Way (Lindsay, J.)

Show me the way
Show me the way, to our love

You give me more than I knew I wanted
You give me more than I thought I could have
You give me possibility
And you put it in my grasp

Singing songs out of silence
Giving vision from my blindness
You are the rising sun
And you're everything to me

Show me the way, to our love
Show me the way, to our love

(Chorus)
Show me the way
Show me the way, to our love

The measure of a life
Is the measure of a love
The measure of life, is love

When I think it's out of reach
You give me your hand
When I've reached the end, don't know where to turn
You show me the way
You show me the way
You show me the way
You show me the way....

Chorus
Track Name: Love $ War
Love $ War (Kearns, D. and Lindsay, J.)

Hey!

We knew her way back when she was a little girl
Living her life and living so free
She's seen enough of what this old world can do
To innocent people like me and you

I never understood a single word you said, but I know you're right
Yeah right!

When knew her way back when she wasn't so much fun
Now she's all made up and looking so mean
She's seen enough of what this old world can do
To innocent people like me and you

I never understood a single word you said but I know you're right
Yeah right!
'Cause all is fair in love and war, as long as the side you're on is winning.

Hey!

She's got a TV show, and she's in the magazines
Spreading the hatred with a beauty disguise
We're gonna wake up and we'll find out our souls are gone
Can't find them floating in the air

I never understood a single word you said but I know you're right
'Cause all is fair in love and war, as long as the side you're on is winning.
Yeah winning!

The side you're on is winning

Hey!!
Track Name: You Can Tell
You Can Tell (Peetz, J.)

Something about these times makes me want to run away
Something in my mind says everything's not Ok. Ok.
Looking for what I lost when I was found
I just hope when I find it, I'm still around!

(Chorus)
I am still alive you know
And somehow you remain by my side
And we know each other so well
You can tell, you can tell

Whenever I'm alone I'm cold inside
Searching through the crowd, behind this mask I hide
I guess it all makes sense in some strange way
At least that's what they tell me everyday

(Chorus)

Bridge/Solo

(Chorus)
Track Name: When Are You Coming Back?
When Are You Coming Back? (Kearns, D.)

Time slowly fades away into the background
You had to go astray, you're a freedom rider

(Chorus)
When are you coming back?
When are you coming back?
When are you coming back?
It's been way too long
Way too long
Way too long, my love.

Hey, what's that you said? While you drifted backwards
Wherever did you go? We know that time will tell
I'm never giving up this empty feeling
I knew it when you looked, and got inside my head

(Chorus)
Solo
(Chorus)

There's something to be said when minds start turning
I'm gonna have to try to keep my hopes on high
Wait for another day, 'cause you're always somewhere
Whenever will you know, you're in heaven and I'm in hell!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Storm
Storm (Lindsay, J.)

Been living my life this way for far too long
Gonna take that final chance before it's gone
Sometimes I go too deep and dig beneath the skin
Going down on everything I wash away my sins
The storm is coming to take me away
The storm is coming to take me away

There's a storm outside, take me away

A storm is growing, it's gathering in my mind
It's blowing everything else aside
Gonna start again, drink the morning rain
Sometimes I get away, I always maintain
A storm is coming, it's gathering in my mind
It's blowing everything else aside

There's a storm outside, take me away
There's a storm outside, take me away
There's a storm!

I wear a mask that grins but lies
Hides my face and shades my eyes
The debts we pay in human lives
Torn and bleeding hearts don't lie
The storm is coming, it's gathering in my mind
It's blowing everything else aside

There's a storm outside, take me away
There's a storm outside, take me away
There's a storm.
Track Name: Offline
Offline (Peetz, J.)

I need to get out more and seize the day
But I can't seem to make my way
There's too much information in my face
I'm waiting on reality to replace.

(Chorus)
Ooooh. I'm offline
Ooooh, I'm on fire (fire)
Ooooh, I'm alive
Living my life unplugged suits me just fine

I need to get downtown and get some food.
And maybe some cool sweet tea for my attitude
Reality can't take me all the way
Ha! Found my cell phone, saved the day!

Ooooh, I'm offline
Ooooh, I'm on fire (fire)
Ooooh, I'm alive
With or without your hashtag I'm just fine

Solo

Ooooh, I'm offline
Ooooh, I'm on fire (fire)
Ooooh, I'm alive
Ooooh, I'm offline - I'm offline
Ooooh, I'm on fire!
Ooooh, I'm alive - so alive - yeah yeah!
Ooooh
Track Name: Can't Come Back
Can't Come Back (Lindsay, J.)

I didn't know what love was for
'Til you opened up that door
I'm not going back, I'm not going back

Getting old is not so hard
When you touch me you heal my scars
I'm not going back, I'm not going back

There's not a lot that I can do
When I get too far from you
I'm not going back, no I'm not going back

(Chorus)
'Cause I can't come back from love
No I can't come back from love
I can't come back from love
No I can't come back from love

A promise made is a promise kept
Vows are words until they're meant
Promise made is a promise kept
Vows are words until they're meant

I didn't know what love was for
'Til you opened up that door
I'm not going back, I'm not going back

Forever always 'til the end of time
What's mine is yours and yours is mine
I'm not going back, no I'm not going back

'Cause I can't come back from love
No I can't come back from love
I can't come back from love
No I can't come back from love
Track Name: I Wish I Might
I Wish I Might (Lindsay, J.)

I wish I may, I wish I might
Carry the darkness into the light
Time..........

I wish I may, I wish I might
Carry the darkness into the light
'Cause every crime and every sadness
Every kind of madness

'Cause time can't be wasted, time can't be wasted
Time..........

Everything changes, nothing stays the same
Time can't be wasted, wishing on a distant constellation
No time can't be wasted - Oh!

And it feels like I'm the last one alive!

And it feels like I'm the last one alive
And it feels like I'm the last one alive

I wish I may, I wish I might
Carry the darkness into the light
'Cause every crime and every sadness
Every kind of madness

'Cause time can't be wasted, no time can't be wasted
'Cause time can't be wasted, no time can't be wasted
Track Name: Each Day
Each Day (Lindsay, J. and Peetz, J.)

Some kind of trouble is on the way
Can't get around it, happens every day
No one can help you, you got nothing to say

The only thing that we can do
Is stand and fight for me and you
The only thing that we can do

Feels like there's something in between
Out of reach, it can't be seen
Feels like there's something falling through

(Chorus)
In time
In time
In time this will all be gone
In time the curtains are drawn
Each day we pay the price
Each day is a sacrifice

Solo

In time
In time
In time this will all be gone
In time the curtains are drawn
Each day we pay the price
Each day is a sacrifice

Something apparent is out of sight
Something out of balance, out of place
Feels like there's something falling through

In time
In time
In time
In time
Track Name: Beautiful World
Beautiful World (Lindsay, J.)

Tossing stones into the river, never seeing the impact
Pebbles washed out to sea
One day become mountains

Some things are better off where you left them
Nostalgia's a crime haunting your mind
Tying to dreams of the past

Downward glance as you walk by reflected faces
Walking into an empty room
Smell of smoke at night

it's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world

Waiting for the next thing to happen
Thinking about what may come, forgetting about
Where you are, where you are
Where you are, where you are

It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful; world
it's a beautiful world

Solo

It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world
It's a beautiful world
