BandFolkAcoustic

We play our lives. What we feel is what we sing about. Our lyrics are our stories and the musical styles vary just as our life stories do.

Biography

We are influenced by bands like Live, Godsmack, Miranda lambert, the wreckers, Harry chapin, linkin park, crossfade, Rascal flatts and many more from every genre. We have been together for over 7 years and fit like a glove. pretty much we know what the other is going to do or say before they do it. That sets us apart and makes the life stories we tell in our music powerful and simple.

Lyrics

Thats life

Written By: Megan Houde

Every growing day
I would get to say
Daddy makes it all ok
From a scratched up little knee
To a burning family
Daddy always made the time for me

Every single night I pray to make it right and to understand
Daddy looks at me he loves me don’t you see and he says

That’s life honey
Remember that it ain’t always fair and
Time can take its toll
That’s life honey
Everything you do in it you have to care cause
that’s what makes us whole
Honey that’s just life

See the years do go by
And Daddy wipe my eye
Packed his bags I’m waving him goodbye
It was a great big mystery just how it came to be
Now we were no longer a happy family

Every single night I pray to make it right and to understand
Daddy looks at me he loves me don’t you see and he says

That’s life honey
Remember that it ain’t always fair and
Time can take its toll
That’s life honey
Everything you do in it you have to care cause
that’s what makes us whole
Honey that’s just life

Never forget the day
said he’d be ok
Doctor says it will go away
And in my heart I drowned
My world came crashing down
Oh god just let him be ok

See I finally understand
The years I tried to mend
Now I have you finally as a friend
Well I tell you how I feel
And you help me try to deal
When my life gets just a little bit to real

Every single night I pray to make it right and to understand
Daddy looks at me he loves me don’t you see and he says

That’s life honey
Remember that it ain’t always fair and
Time can take its toll
That’s life honey
Everything you do in it you have to care cause
that’s what makes us whole
Honey that’s just life

Through the eyes of a child

Written By: Joseph Carroll

As the days go by
We rush to live our lives
Through the day to day routine
We try to keep in time
So many goals to reach
Sometimes we just can’t see
The things that matter most
We are to busy to see

Why are we blind
From the things we need
Why can’t we go back
Why can’t the world just see
Through the eyes of a child

The wars that we fight
From within our soul
All the fears that we have
All the pain that we hold
Remember that time
When we were free
Everything was innocent
It was the simple things we need

Why are we blind
From the things we need
Why can’t we go back
Why can’t the world just see
Through the eyes of a child

Everyone is their friend
(Just stay away)
Anything they will say
(Don’t tell the truth)
Questions that they will ask
(Just figure it out)
Not afraid to live their dreams
(And the pain will follow)

Why are we blind
From the things we need
Why can’t we go back
Why can’t the world just see
Through the eyes of a child

Through the eyes of a child

Through the eyes of a child
