about

Silver Line is a sparsely produced collection of songs in their pure and simple form, chronicling friendships, childhood, life experiences and the choices we make that define us. And it's topped off with a little bit of hope -- the silver lining that can be seen at the edge of every obstacle life sets down in front of us.

Track Name: Say It Right
Looking for the silver line
in between the black and white
looking for a reason why
I should leave it undefined
I'm never one to be naive
But if you say it right, say it right, say it right
then I'll believe

Doesn't even make much sense
as I sit here on the fence
One leg out, one leg in
and it all depends
on if you give live you receive
and you say it right, say it right, say it right
so I believe

We stare a little while at the shadows on the wall
there's a shadow in your eye and a shadow in your soul
we shine a little light and we feel a little brave
and we feel a little high and we feel a little saved

Every minute of the clock reminds
every bit of me that feels inclined
I hear the shaking of the trees outside
against the power lines
I hear the falling of the leaves
and if I say it right, say it right, say it right
will you believe

cause when you say it right, say it right, say it right
I believe

Looking for the silver line
in between the black and white
looking for a reason why
Track Name: Little Heart
First grade, little one, little one
I made my days into a mission
I had it all laid out right in front of me
and I always stayed in line

I had a fire and a spark

in my little heart, little heart, little heart
in my little heart, little heart, little heart

Teenage, and a chorus of emotions
At that age, aren't we all, aren't all rearranged
Inside out and outside in
and crossing over lines

I had a fire and a spark

in my little heart, little heart, little heart
in my little heart, little heart, little heart
in the dark, in the dark, in the dark
in my little heart, little heart, little heart

We move out, we move on, we move up
and the time and the time and the time goes by so fast

Don't want to lose it, the fire and the spark

in my little heart, little heart, little heart
Track Name: Universe
Old friend do you remember when we were living in a different day?
Late nights and we'd laugh until we cried and it carried all our troubles away

When planets align, decided by fate
a universe on the run
Electrical light and radio waves
I think we shifted the sun

Hard heads but my momma always said we could reach and find a handful of stars
Long while and I really miss your smile, how it told me anything could be ours

When planets align, decided by fate
a universe on the run
Electrical light and radio waves
I think we shifted the sun

The solar system in a daze
It feels like light years away
here in the milky way

Old friend, do we break or do we bend when we're living in a different place
Transcend where the galaxy begins, give infinity a warm embrace

When planets align, decided by fate
a universe on the run
Electrical light and radio waves
I think we shifted the sun
Track Name: Hideout
Looking for an open door
something they will just ignore
something they would just pass by
They will never find your hideout, hideout

Looking for a way inside
the walls of the great divide
You can't take it anymore
the battle that became a war

Build up around you and don't let them in
You know if they found you they'd see from within
and the wall's wearing thin
so you don't let them in

When you think nobody is looking for you
you come out running from your hideout
When you think nobody would follow you through
they come down running to your hideout, hideout

All the weight you're under
it's no wonder
Just take my hand
You sit, I'll stand

Let me in
It's not like a tower you have to defend
If the wall's wearing thin
then we're breaking them in

When you think nobody is looking for you
you come out running from your hideout
When you think nobody would follow you through
they come down running to your hideout, hideout

Let this city crumble
Give it to the sky
We take it as it comes
Track Name: Cathedral
I know its not the status quo
We left it open wide I know
With too much room to walk around
I'm standing still

I'm leaving this unwritten
I am leaving this untouched
But if I leave it all behind me
I won't be saving much
Calling down from this cathedral
somehow I woke up in
Let me out, I am defeated
I surrender and you win

I will contain my disarray
Send it back from where it came
I've said too much and I'm ashamed
But it's too late

I'm leaving this unwritten
I am leaving this untouched
But if I leave it all behind me
I won't be saving much
Calling down from this cathedral
somehow I woke up in
Let me out, I am defeated
I surrender and you win

I've got the light if you've got the tunnel
So swing with your right and hold on with the other
The end is in sight, the beginning is something
to see with your eyes open wide and uncovered
I'm waiting here for you

I'm leaving this unwritten
I am leaving this untouched
But if I leave it all behind me
I won't be saving much
Calling down from this cathedral
somehow I woke up in
Let me out, I am defeated
I surrender and you win
Track Name: Tomorrow Tonight
Been awake all night, I'm a walking light
I'm a walking light, I'm a bitter bite
Been a ghost before, been a losing war
Been a losing war, been the underscore

In the blink of an eye
on the brink of the iris
I see the waiting line, the waiting line
I'm not gonna lie
I can't make a promise
that I won't take what's mine, take what's mine
An overestimation of the underlying sign
I'm gonna ask for tomorrow tonight

Got a foolproof plan, got it secondhand
Gotta take command, I got a great plan
Got a lion's mouth, with a bluebird shout
Could you let me out? could you let me out?


In the blink of an eye
on the brink of the iris
I see the waiting line, the waiting line
I'm not gonna lie
I can't make a promise
that I won't take what's mine, take what's mine
An overestimation of the underlying sign
I'm gonna ask for tomorrow tonight
