lyrics

You find yourself on distant shores
Far from all you've known before
You broke those chains that only held you down

Now you answer to different names
And the tone in your voice changed
You're looking for what you've already found

My love, my love
What are you running from?
There's no answer in escape
My love, my love
What are you hiding from?
Things can't help but change

Sick of all you can't control
Tired of doing what you're told
You're done with living life upon the shelf

You let go of those prayer beads
They erode like make believe
I hope it means you finally trust yourself

My love, my love
What are you running from?
There's no answer in escape
My love, my love
What are hiding from?
Things can't help but change

Endless battles with success
Heavy measures of regret
The will to carry on is all you need

Failure is an empty threat
When you fear there's nothing left
Open your heart and love you will receive

My love, my love
What are you running from?
There's no answer in escape
My love, my love
What are you hiding from?
Things can't help but change

We play basements, cruise ships, and concert halls - and hope you enjoy it! ... more
