Lyrics

Sale of the Ground

Written By: Jillian Speece & Nathan Hoff

I saw the light
I saw the light
Open the floor door of the barn
Below and over all the fields
White studded piers will go alarmed
Across the lake
Above the well
Away in fields
The salesman sells
The salesman sells

Whether or not you like it
I’ll pull you, I’ll pull you down
Ill hold the key and hope for
You to keep coming around

Whether or not you like it
This is the sale of the ground
Everything is going under
All the trees are falling down

I knew a time
I knew a time
Under a tree down by the lawn
Where all the shadows broke away
In my bare feet I wrote a song
About the things that I must say
Before this story slipped away
Slips away

Whether or not you like it
I’ll pull you, I’ll pull you down
Ill hold the key and hope for
You to keep coming around

Whether or not you like it
This is the sale of the ground
Everything is going under
All the trees are falling down

If you can find a way
Out of this mess
You ought to
You ought to

If you can find a way
Out of this mess.
You Got to
You got to
Only time will tell

I’ve seen your eyes
Your spoken lies
You will take the world without a sound
Looking over fields and lakes
You covet the hollowed ground
Across the lake
There is the well
You try to steal
I WILL NOT SELL!!
I WILL NOT SELL!!

Whether or not you like it
I’ll pull you, I’ll pull you down
Ill hold the key and hope for
You to keep coming around

Whether or not you like it
This is the sale of the ground
Everything is going under
All the trees are falling down

Oh they
Oh they are fallin
Oh they are falling down...

But I Do

Written By: Jillian Speece

I feel like I carry the world
Upon my shoulders
Sometimes it’s hard to breath
Then again
Everybody feels as though
They are missing something
Sometimes I can hardly get off
My feet
But I do
But I do
But I do

All the songs
All the times
All the while
All the silly talk about diplomacy
And mediocrity
What’s it all about
What’s it all
What’s it all going to be
As the sand slips
Through into the sea
But it slips
But it slips
But it slips

I can feel the crash
The Crash
On top of me
On top of me
I can feel the crash
The crash
On top of me
On top of me
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it now?

I feel like I carry the world
Upon my shoulders
But you say
I feel the same as you
Our mind plays a crooked game
As we fool our hearts
But you know
That is what they do
But they do
But they do
But they do

I feel like I carry the world
Upon my shoulders
Sometimes it’s hard to breath
Then again
Everybody feels as though
They are missing something
Sometimes I can hardly get off
My feet
But I do
But I do
But I do

You + Me

Written By: Nathan Hoff & Jillian Speece

You and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

Cuz, you and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

Darling
Walking on Saturday morning
Close to you…
With our dreams
And our schemes
Bout the way things
Should be

You and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

Cuz, you and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

With you
The sweetness of life just lingers
All around
When we talk
When we laugh
All the moments
Like this

You and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

Cuz, you and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

Just for today
I don't care
What they say
All that I do
Oh, I love you
Either way
I don't care
What they say
All that I do
Oh, I love you

You and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

Cuz, you and me
As simple as 1,2,3
As perfect as doe, ray, me
Under the old oak tree

In My Life

Written By: Nathan Hoff

You laughed
When you saw me move that way
And we cried
When we danced all night
You laughed
Looking at my face
And we cried
Holding each other just afraid
To die

And I've lived my life to show
I love you
And I've lived my life to show
How much
I care
I live my life
To show
I love you
I live my life
To show
I care

I laughed
All the time at the lake
I cried
When you said you felt that way
And we laughed
On the course that day
And we cried
Just asking why

And I've lived my life to show
I love you
And I've lived my life to show
How much
I care
I live my life
To show
I love you
I live my life
To show
I care

Railroad

Written By: Jillian Speece & Nathan Hoff

Fish breathe fine under water
Why don’t we breathe easy here
Remember the place we used to go
To escape our minds melancholy fear
Oh those days
Oh our ways
Oh the way we
We thought we would
Change the world

When we were…

Standing on the railroad
Feeling free from the world
Our thoughts shattered like glass
Under the sky
Where the sun shone through
Casting shadows in the grass

Apricot was the jam
We would take
And Honey was our relinquishing Grace
The sky was our unending fate
While we would escape
To the old tracks
Oh the way
Oh the day
Oh the way
We thought we would
Change the world

When we were

Standing on the railroad
Feeling free from the world
Our thoughts shattered like glass
Under the sky
Where the sun shone through
Casting shadows in the grass

Oh when we were...

Amy

Written By: Nathan Hoff

All this time
I hope that you
Don’t change your mind
Amy you look the same
and you feel the same to me
Amy you look the same
and you feel the same to me

It is coming down now
and it is all around you now
It’s coming down now
But I can see
The light in your eyes

It’s in your eyes

If you want to
I can be your lover tonight
If you wan to
I can hold you all my life
If you need to
I can wait and take my time
But if you want to
I can be your lover tonight

If you want to
I can make this last all night
If you want to
I can wait and take my time
If you need to
I can sit right here by your side
But if you want to
We can make our worlds collide

All this time
I hope that you
Don’t change your mind
Amy you look the same
and you feel the same to me
Amy you look the same
and you feel the same to me

All this time
I hope that you
Don’t change your mind

In Between`

Written By: Nathan Hoff

What you say babe
is what you need
What you fear babe
is the in between
It's the in between in life
It's the struggles and the fights
And it just ain't up to me
It ain't up to me

As for me now
I am so damn broke
I can't buy you rings babe
Keep up with folk
But I swear there's more to life
than one giant dollar sign
And it just ain't up to me
It ain't up to me

That trip to New York
served me well
We test our limits
In cheap motels
It's that fight to stay alive
It's those train rides through the night
And it just ain't up to me
It ain't up to me

There is no comfort
out on the road
No lovely hometown
No lovely home
But it begs there's more to life
than these cities and these skies
And it just ain't up to me
It ain't up to me

Treads burning up the sound
of flying two feet from the ground
Roads bend so carelessly
It ain't up to me
It ain't up to me
It ain't up to me
It ain't up to me

In Between
