Sometimes inevitability dictates the roads we take, leading us to fateful coincidences, Craigslist ads, and a little bit of blind luck. That's exactly how Wyland came to be.

Born from a small town outside of the meadowlands, Wyland weaves together the genre of singer-songwriter with alternative indie rock, creating a sound that clearly defines them.

Lyrics

Lifeboats

Written By: Wyland

Wrestled with my demons all night
Trying to decide which one was right
I cast her heart out to sea
Now I'm off to see if I can find her
Before it's too late

It's you
That calms the sea on which I float
For you
I'll send all hope in a lifeboat

Consequence left me at my knees
To admit the faults I couldn't see
I was going wrong all this time
Now I've got to get back what's mine
Before it's too late, before I can't say

It's you
That calms the sea on which I float
For you
I'll send all hope in a lifeboat

And I'll send all hope in a lifeboat
Yeah, I'll send all hope in a lifeboat

Without You

Written By: Ryan Sloan

I saw the spark fade in the night
Left me with nothing but a hole inside
Saw the water come up to my knees
I've been living life in circles drowning where I please singing 

Why do I why do I feel like it's over
Why do I why do I feel like the walls are closing in

Without you I think I’ve lost my head
In a sea of things unsaid

And if you go and if you go and turn away
I will follow this love up in flames
Cause this world it means nothing without you

I saw the parts hidden from view
Of you and it's beautiful but it's torture too
I saw the water come up to my knees
I've been living life in circles drowning where I please singing
 
Why do I why do I feel like it's over
Why do I why do I feel like the walls are closing in

Without you I think I’ve lost my head
In a sea of things unsaid

And if you go and if you go and turn away
I will follow this love up in flames
Cause this world it means nothing without you

And if you go and if you go and turn away
I'll follow I'll this love up in flames
It's the truth that I'm up against
I think I’ve lost my head
Without you
I think I’ve lost my head

When The Lights Go Dark

Written By: Ryan Sloan

I was lost in all the wonder
My head to strong for far to long
Yeah, I was blind. I couldn't see
That only time could set me free

When the lights go dark
And you can feel it all around
It's like you missed the mark
And all the world weighs you down

When you knew right from the start
But it still came apart
Sometimes it takes the dark for you see
How magnificent this life can be

I found my place in all the color
Felt I couldn't change, I couldn't stay the same
Yeah, upon my knees before a violent sea
I saw the lights guiding me

But when the lights go dark
And you can feel it all around
It's like you missed the mark
And all the world weighs you down

When you knew right from the start
But it still broke your heart
Sometimes it takes the dark for you see
How magnificent this life can be

Have you seen the lightning crack the sky,
Felt the sun defy the night
Have you seen all the colors in disguise?
If you'd open your eyes love

You'd see where the river meets the sea
How two stranger's hearts make a symphony
How everybody's at war for a little peace
Open yours eyes to love

And you can see from where you stand
That you're not some rubber band
Stretching your heart out until it cracks
Are you scared that you can't go back?
