Circle The Wagons EP1
Ships (Balsamo)

Storm warning on the radio
So I think I'm gonna take my love down low
But not so deep that I can't see you
Think I'm gonna take my love down low

Right about now I need another drink
The bottle from the wreckage helps me think
Prefer it looking at me than a shrink
A bottle from the wreckage helps me think

We're not even ships that pass in the light of day
The undertow of different oceans keeps us away
We've been pulled apart by the light of a different moon
We're not even ships that pass
Even ships that pass at high noon

Trawling through the hertz for a lost signal
I saw the plane go down in the triangle
Static on the line has become hymnal
The plane went down in the triangle

We're not even ships that pass in the light of day
The undertow of different oceans keeps us away
We've been pulled apart by the light of a different moon
We're not even ships that pass
Even ships that pass at high noon

And we've drifted where we harbour all our fears
Our fears
On the horizon is the hope of new frontiers
And we're the pioneers

Storm warning on the radio
So I think I'm gonna keep my love down low
But not so deep that I can't see you
Think I'm gonna take my love down low

Sing Your Soul Back Home (Balsamo, Hamill)

I dream of the river 

To carry me easy

Ancient provider

Whispers your name from the deepest blue
 

The payphone is broken

To call in the family

lost the connection

sending my love down the wire

To you
 

It's written deep

Deep in our bones

The peace that we gave away 

At last is coming home
 

Sing your soul back

Sing your soul back home
 

Watching our memories 

Play like a movie

Beautiful flowers 

Cover our bodies asleep down there
 

A room with no number

A door is left open

A bed in the corner 

Lovers are left coming up for air
 

It's written deep

Deep in our bones

The peace that we gave away 

At last is coming home
 

Sing your soul back

Sing your soul back home
 

The crow and the lover 

Alone in the silence 

Called to remember 

History written in me and you
 

I dream of the river 

To carry me easy

Ancient provider

Whispers your name from the deepest blue
 

It's written deep

Deep in our bones

The peace that we gave away 

At last is coming home
 

Sing your soul back

Sing your soul back home

Step Into The Unknown (Balsamo, Collins)
 

Summer light lays golden as we find ourselves on solid ground

Words softly spoken with a kiss the missing peace is found
 

Something is calling me

Like a whisper thru the trees
 

As we step into the unknown

Letting go of stories we've outgrown

As we step into the unknown

Shaking off the bodies that hold us down

Let's step into the unknown
 

Darling take my hand 

For every end there's a beginning time

As sure as we stand 

Oh we fall before we fly, we burn to shine
 

I want to turn and run

But I got these words biting my tongue
 

So I'll step into the unknown

Letting go of stories we've outgrown

As we step into the unknown

Shaking off the bodies that hold us down

Let's step into the unknown
 

We'll show what we're made of and what we're afraid of

But in a moment it's all gone...
 

So let's step into the unknown

Letting go of stories we've outgrown

Oh we'll step into the unknown
 

As we step into the unknown

Letting go of stories we've outgrown

As we step into the unknown

Shaking off the bodies that hold us down

Let's step into the unknown
 

Feels like i'm coming home

I've come home

I've come home

Blood Is Blood (Balsamo, Collins, Deighton, Hamill)

My father was a lucky man

He Rolled the dice took his chances

Mamma do all that she can

Tried to keep the wolf at bay
 

Taught the devil all he knew

His smile could seduce the angels

Sing the sirens out the blue

Wipe all their tears away
 

I know blood is blood

But the pull is stronger

When you're hiding out

The truth becomes stranger

I wish that I wasn't a stranger 

Lie beneath a sky of stars

Contemplating all the mystery 

See how connected we are

what we're made of can make us afraid
 

Sweetest sound I ever heard

was my baby daughter breathing

Said it all without a word

Till I saw him in her eyes
 

I know blood is blood

But the pull is stronger

When you're hiding out 

The truth becomes stranger
 

I know blood is blood

But the pull is stronger 

When you're halfway home

The road can look longer

I wish I wasn't a stranger
 

The weight of our history

The good and the bad comes down the line

Sometimes it's too much to carry

I see your life in my design

the more I try to run

the more I become you

(Still try to run)
 

I know blood is blood is blood...
 

I know blood is blood

But the pull is stronger when you're hiding out

The truth becomes stranger

I wish that I wasn't a stranger

Longer Road (Balsamo, Collins)
 

Loneliness can fall

Cross a crowded room

Providence still calls 

When you play your hand too soon

What makes you react 

Can't explain away all the sparks

You're losing all the facts

When you're hiding in the dark

What you're hiding in the dark

I can't see the road behind us

I can't see what lies ahead

Let's take the longer road

Take the longer road

Instead

A cautionary route

Was always ours to take

But rules are always rules

Till you find the point to break

Will we learn from our mistakes?

I can't see the road behind us

I can't see what lies ahead

Let's take the longer road

Take the longer road

Instead

And we shine

Shine

Shine a light

C'mon and shine

Shine a light

Let the path get us lost get broken and tossed away from all we know
I can't see the road behind us

I can't see what lies ahead

Let's take the longer road

Lets Take the longer road

Instead
 

I can see, 

See what lies behind us

See what lies ahead

Let's take the longer road

Instead.

Circle The Wagons (Balsamo, Phillips)
 

Before the night draws in let's circle up the wagons

Save all we know

When arrows fly and spears rush by

To separate our atoms

Let them pass thru?

If innocence was my defence 

It crumbled like a martyr

But thirsty heart and aching bones 

Just make it harder

You know that by my hand my world had shattered

I tried to find the road I know you followed

I proved that all the while I lost hold of the reins...went down in flames

That what remains will never change 

Love is strange
 

We gotta keep it close where all the bodies buried

No one need know

Secrets find a place to shine when no more burdens carried

Will you let go?

If restlessness is evidence

It showed up uninvited

My want to change to rearrange

Maybe misguided

You know that by my hand my world had shattered

I tried to find the road I know you followed

I proved that all the while I lost hold of the reins... went down in flames

That what remains will never change 

Love is strange

I'm strung out walking the high wire

While shadows jump into the fire

You keep at bay my naive attempts to fly

Go circle the wagons tonight

You know that by my hand my world had shattered

I tried to find the road I know, (I know) you followed

I proved that all the while I lost hold of the reins... went down in flames

That what remains will never change 

Love is strange

 

 

High On Sunset EP2

High On Sunset (Balsamo, McTaggart, Mosby)

He's a major player 

Among the sharks and thieves 

He could snap his fingers 

And they believed 

He said that he could make her 

A star that shone so bright 

She put on a smile 

Took off her dress 

Cos she knew he was right 
 

High on sunset 

Oh the stars are out tonight 

Only some get 

To see their name in lights 

High on sunset 
 

Every would be Brando 

Got an eight by ten 

And a tan to die for 

From parking Jags and Benz 
 

They all got a movie 

That they're working on 

The saints and sinners 

All rush down 

To where they know they belong 
 

High on sunset 

Oh the stars are out tonight 

Only some get 

To see their name in lights 

High on sunset 
 

To sell your soul in this town 

You gotta stand in line 

So many dreams burn out before 

They've had a chance to shine 
 

High on sunset 

Oh the stars are out tonight 

High on Sunset 

Their sinking from the sky 

Cos only some get 

To see their name in lights 

High on sunset 

Better Man (The Storys)

I'm trying to be a better man, a better man, doing all I can

Trying to be a better man, a better man, I hope you understand

I'm trying to find a fearless heart, a fearless heart

Don't know where to start

I don't know how, but I know I must

Find a fearless heart to win your trust

There's a ghost in my place

Sometimes I hear a voice, think I recognise a face

Are you lost on your way?

Do you move inside of me, the man I used to be?

I'll use my love to pick you up, pick you up, please take my love

Wanna make this house a home, a shelter from whatever may come

There's a ghost in my place

Sometimes I hear a voice, think I recognise a face

Are you lost on your way?

Do you move inside of me, the man I used to be?

Ohhh

There's a ghost in my place

Sometimes I hear a voice, think I recognise a face

Are you lost on your way?

Will I hear you whisper what you have to say?

There's a ghost in my place

Sometimes I hear a voice, think I recognise a face

Are you lost on your way?

Do you move inside of me, the man I used to be?

I try to live a simple life, a simple life, for this I know I'll fight

Wanna see you dressed in white

One of these days, I'm gonna make it right

Lost And Found At The Same Time (Balsamo, Phillips)

The maelstrom from his orbit was too strong
You got pushed and pulled along
But the wake got you to wake up
To rise and shine 
Now you're lost and found at the same time.

Singing like a bird from a broken clock 
You're right twice a day so don't you stop
The stakes that you are tied to 
Satisfies the crime
Now you're lost and found at the same time.

 

You can be more, so much more than you know

Gotta give yourself permission to receive all this love
Caught I'm the middle
Of an old map and a riddle 
Darling I believe in you

Can't stop a freak tsunami when it comes
No use trying to swim or trying to run
The wave black and relentless 
Drowning power lines
Now you're lost and found at the same time.

You can be more, so much more than you know

Gotta give yourself permission to receive all this love

Time to take refuge 
In the solace and the deluge 

Darling I believe in you

Now you're lost and found at the same time

Now you're lost and found at the same time

I Won't Give Up On You (Balsamo, Collins, Lewis)

I won't give up on you

Please don't give up on me 

I won't give up on you

Please don't give up on me

Drawing your heart in the dusty glass

Neon lights set our eyes on fire

Drink up, this place is closing

Is nothing gonna change your mind?

Is nothing gonna change your mind?
 

I won't give up on you

Please don't give up on me 

I won't give up on you

Please don't give up on me
 

Hailing a ride in the morning air

Soho rain wash the dirty streets

Look up, can't see you crying
 

Is nothing gonna change your mind?

Can I try to change your mind?
 

I won't give up on you

Please don't give up on me 
 

And you can go your own way

I will go mine

Whenever you need a shoulder

I will be right behind 

Baby if you change your mind 
 

I won't give up on you

Please don't give up on me 

I won't give up on you

Please don't give up on me


It's Always Been You (Balsamo)
 

Will you be willing 

To hold fast against the weight of all these dreams? 

Cos you were there when I woke up 

feels like a million lifetimes here with me 

Everything before you seems like some rehearsal 

Like I missed something I never had 
 

It's you 

till the sun burns cold 

It's you 

Till gravity loses hold 

And the world disappears 

Stars fall through the blue 

It's always been you 

You 
 

I made a promise 

this lonely desert rose won't bloom alone 

So I left a light on 

in case you ever found your way back home 

Because together we're the dance and dancer 

A song whose words I waited for 
 

It's you 

Till the last bullet flies 

It's you 

Till the blood in my veins run dry 

The lost pieces you found 

Was my burden laid low 

It's always been you 

You 
 

Middle 8 
 

What if this moment is all that the we got? 

And everything that I was seeking, all along was seeking me? 

We gotta give it our best shot 

Hand over both our hearts 

As part of you becomes a part of me 
 

Will you still love me 

When autumn leaves will blush and start to fall? 

Between the lines on our faces 

Our story in the space between it all 
 

It's you 

Till there's nothing left but dust 

It's you 

Till the gold starts to rust 

Thru the illusion of choice 

My little voice knew 

It's always been you 

you 

You
