Story

In Without You, having reached the end of the rope, there's a struggle to get out of the depths of a dark place. The vocals are emotional and angry and pleading, but has the underlying confidence that the one who can help is close by and in reach.

Story

O.K. adds a relaxing, lightened-up feel with its laid-back reggae rock rhythms centered on the lives of four women. The catchy hook Got the love inside of you encourages all to have hope and love oneself, even though life doesn't always make sense.

Lights spurred the recording of the rest of the EP. It speaks of a longing to be with the one you are closest to. It tells the story of how some aspects of life are unexplainable and how sometimes we just want all the bad things to go away.

Story

Belief and dreams, passions and desires. Imagine being suspended over the world, having a bird’s eye view of life and finding your way through it. The high-pitched echoed sound of the guitars and anthemic chorus tugs at the heart, drawing you closer to answering that eternal question of purpose.

Story

We wrote Selection after visiting Aushwitz II-Birkenau, the German concentration camp where millions of Jews and political prisoners were jailed and killed. It follows the probable story of a young boy that was "selected" for the gas chambers. I saw this boy’s photograph whilst on the tour. The image of the boy briskly walking, not knowing he was walking to his final resting place, remained with me and a song was borne from it. The repeated lyric, Didn't they have to tell you, echoes into the 21st century as we witness the continual lack of judgment of leaders in positions of responsibility and power.

Story

I remember being quite tense on the morning of recording You are. As a result I took that tenseness into the vocal booth and interpreted the lyrics incorrectly. I was on a war path! Luckily Brendyn set me straight and the song settled into the acknowledgement of God as sovereign over all things, and it reminded of my acceptance of his sovereignty and my inability to change it.

Story

Lyrics

Lights, going on in the distance

Flights, fly or stay right here

Do I wanna be a part of this

Do I wanna be alone

Do I wanna be a part of this

Do I wanna be alone

 

Slow down, I think You're going too fast for me

Hold on, I think I gotta catch a train to get there

Cos You're way ahead, You're way ahead

10000 miles away, yet You right here next to me

 

Chorus:

I feel You in the deep skies,

I feel You here inside of me

How can this be, how can this be

Yet I feel it, Woe is me

 

Lights, a far off thought in the distance

Cars, moving in directions, unknown to me

My hope is in You, my dreams made brand new

 

Chorus x2

 

Even though You're far away

You're always near to me

Even though You're far away

You're inside of me

Lyrics

Chorus:

You are, You are, You are, You are

You are, You are, You are,

You're God above

(Repeat)

 

May the world know Your glory

May the world see Your face

Of God above

(Repeat)

 

May my words be few

Let me sing to You

May my hearts desire

Be what Your heart desires

 

Chorus

 

May my words be few

Let me sing to You

May my hearts desire

Be what Your heart desires

May my words be few

May Your heart shine through

May Your will be true

as I live for You

 

Repeat Chorus to end
