about

This is our second Ep, and it's titled "I Haven't Always Been Like This." It's a statement that will remind us of the work, time, and struggles that we have gone through to be where we are as musicians, christians, and as people. We're still learning of who we're supposed to be and what we're supposed to do, and it's a blessing to be able to grow and work through these things together.

Track Name: I Haven't Always Been Like This
you can say what you need to say
but I'll still believe that I'm okay in You
with You
Whoever said that we needed proof
I can close my eyes and be someone new in You
with You
I don't want you to think this is something
I wanted to be to You
with You
But there's something I hope you don't forget
I Haven't Always Been Like This
Track Name: Cycles
It would be easy to just shut you out
But I don't have it in me I like having you around
And I am a handful, sometimes a little tough
And you don't need me, but darling you're what I want
And when the lights go out, I'll figure what all this is about
And you'll go out with all of your friends
And I'm stuck on this road the cycle never ends
And I am addicted to these things
Sometimes I enjoy the hold they have on me
And when the lights grow dim, the devil says he is my only friend
I try hard to be a man of God
With Truth in my heart, but the devil plays a part
And wicked sin, over and again
And it never stops til the day I drop
and it never stops.
Track Name: Stay With Me
It's 5 a.m. on my clock
And I don't know why, but I cannot breathe
I toss and turn in bed, while I'll wait for the sun to creep in
And it's warm under these blankets
but there's no other comfort besides this
And I’ll stay with my hands in Yours
And I'll get lost in this night, for sure
And even though I can't keep my eyes open
Will You stay with me
You're so inviting
And there's no way for me to say no
You've got some tricks up your sleeves
But please don't use them on me
Cause baby I will give in
faster than you can breathe
and It's warm under these blankets
but there's no other comfort besides this
And I'll stay with my hands in Yours
And I'll get lost in this night, for sure
And even though I can't keep my eyes open
Will You stay with me
Track Name: A Blizzard
A blizzard is coming
But I don't know when
So put on your coat and get ready for it
Cause I know that I said this to you last week
But you should know by now that this is me
And everybody wants to know where I am going
But everyone should know that I don't know
Your body is flat
And your skin is dry
And it's hard for me to remember what I like
I've been here before
Your face isn't new
Your sound is a song written with no tune
And everybody wants to know where I am going
But everyone should know that I don't know
Track Name: Hudson
I've been kind of struggling
With the thought of you leaving me alone here
And I’ve been patiently waiting
for you to play things
loud enough for us to hear
And I have heard if you love things
Don't hold on too tightly or they will disappear
Days flow into nights slow
But it gets easier when I occupy my time
I keep moving, God it's how I do things
With you out of my sight, but not out of my mind
And I have seen myself become
somebody I'm not, someone I'm not
Track Name: There Is Hope
You've come down to me
I can tell
But you don't know what I think
There's Hope
Cause I just think other things that slope
In other directions that other minds don't want to go
My mother taught me how to pray to God
but somehow I forgot
Like most things I don't think, listen, or have much thought
I feel alone
And you've noticed, and you know this
can't be what we want
Help us God
Cause I just think other things that slope
In other directions that other minds don't want to go
