Track Name: (Letting Go) Haley
Haley can't you see
If he chose Jolene
You deserve much better
Love that is much stronger
Than a pair of emerald eyes
Auburn hair of fire

Haley can't you see
All your worrying
Makes you reconsider
Love as something bigger
Than some words through a pillow
Promising tomorrow

Haley can't you see
Bullshit comes in 3's
Things you're overthinking
Though it's so relieving
Like a game of Fight N' Fuck
You're worth more than luck
Or a pair of emerald eyes
Auburn hair of fire
Track Name: (Nurture/Knowing What You've Got Before It's Gone) Sequoias
The garbage floating back to shore
We thought we threw away, we just displaced it's cage
Now it wants back what we stole
Wants it's heart back, wants it's soul
That we sold from ours
At the lowest cost or so we thought

The demons coming back to mourn
The only notion we could not exploit
Grab your preacher, grab your gun
Tell your friends they all have won
In the slowest game
That they never thought we'd have to play

Wouldn't it be nice
To rewind back to a time when trees still breathed us our fresh air

But back then how much did we care?

Wake up sheeple, what's free will
Fate put in a sugar pill
That we kept for days
Cos we never felt it safe to take

Wouldn't it be nice
To rewind back to a time when trees still breathed us our fresh air

Before we had an app for that
Track Name: (Trust) !
It's easy like a thought arising
It's easy like a kiss on the cheek
Trust keeps growing through the forest of honesty
It's easy like a passing smile
It's easy like your hand on my shoulder
Trust keeps growing through the forest of honesty

And when you feel it
You see no reason to fight for anything cos this is all you need

Peace begins with the love we have together and every day it's just a little better and anyone could feel it if you feel it
So do what makes you happy and share it

It's present like a circus in the Sun
It's present like water in the ocean
Full of life and willing to give and take
It's present like your constant care
It's present in believing good intentions
Trust keeps growing through the forest of honesty

And when you feel it
You see no reason to fight for love because it comes so naturally

We're never alone
If anyone is not safe neither is home
We're never alone
Even when we're gone it carries on
Through everyone
Love is a weightless shield that shines through everyone
Love is a weightless shield
