dafzuka This album is really outstanding - in my top 10 of 2013 for sure. Initially my favorite song was "Lost At Sea" (the track that led me to find the album) but I think This Is Really Happening has overtaken it as my favorite. It has the most jubilant sound I've heard in quite some time. The hook stays in my head all day! Favorite track: This Is Really Happening.

Matthew Fritz It evokes emotion, haunting, honest, brutal emotion. The kind of music you can sit back with, close your eyes and be swept away outside of the reality of life and into the reality of your emotions. Favorite track: Lost At Sea.

Well you said that I was always in your heart But in truth soon as it started there I was Trying to figure out the place the sky would fall And I wonder if it matters now at all Call the future by another name Could there ever be another way Whatever happened to the feeling I could even stop the world Well here we are Here we are And you told me everything that goes around Is gonna find a way to come and bring you down And we wanted to believe that we were wrong But I guess we found out that sometimes forever isn’t very long Call the future what you never did What happened to the revolution kids When it was over did they all forget That nothing’s ever really over so no matter what just tell me If you hear my voice cut through the noise You gotta not come running And if we live forever and ever, promise no matter what You won’t come running Cause I need this To be the hardest part So if I’m lost and I call your name, just turn around and walk away Just don’t come running And if we live forever and ever, promise no matter what You won’t come running Cause I can make it And heal this heart But I need this To be the hardest part

When you fail, when you’re lost When we’re gone together When you sleep, when you wake We resist, forever We are one When your fate is letting go Know you’re not in this alone Because, you got my heart in your hands So keep my faith in your soul When your backs against the wall Because, you got my heart in your hands How I wish, we could be Just ourselves, each other No goodbyes, no lies Cause you know together we can make it if we’re strong enough We are one When your fate is letting go Know you’re not in this alone Because, you got my heart in your hands So keep my faith in your soul When your backs against the wall Because, you got my heart in your hands So wait stop the world now Cause I love whatever you are Just wait stop it all now Cause it’s tearing us apart When your fate is letting go Know you’re not in this alone Because, you got my heart in your hands So keep my faith in your soul When your backs against the wall Because, you got my heart in your hands

Forever falling on your feet And now you got me wondering If we could really never stop What’s at the edge? If I could lay my eyes on you You’re the earth I’m gonna be the moon You’re the sea I’m gonna be the shore If you’re the peace I guess I’ll be the war Hard to believe we’re living in The shadows of imagining One little spark of what I feel for you Could light the universe And if we find a grain of truth I’m gonna keep it safe for you I’ll take it to the place we know That no one else can ever go Hold on a second Tell me what you see Hold on a second Is it you is it you and me The silver lining's been bestowed If we were wrong we’ll never know We’re looking at it just the same See that dot? That’s us and everything we know And it’s so far from our control But if we get behind the glass We can hold it in our hands Hold on a second Tell me what you see Hold on a second Is it you is it you and me Home

Through all the static and the noise and All the things we’re saying in our sleep I had a dream I was a grain of sand And I found you and somehow you found me And I was right where I want to be And I was falling through the hour glass From what’s coming to what’s always been And I just seemed to be falling so fast But then you came along and just stopped gravity And I was right where I want to be Feels like I waited for forever For a girl like you to call my own But I know I would do it over If that is what it takes cause I know you're the one And you picked up the pieces Of all I ever needed I don’t have any answers But right now right this second I know this is where I want to be Cause we’ve got mazes we’ve got walls And fences that we built ourselves For all the thoughts we never dare to make reality And when it’s like I’ve lost the key Cursed and swallowed in the sea I thank the hour glass that I have got you here with me Cause this is right where I want to be

And I tried everyday to be the best I can Until the day you came along And then I spent some time worrying who I am And if I could be good enough You left you said it’s no ones fault That I am just too good for you So now I’m trying to get worse I’m just trying to get worse I know that what you said don’t make no sense at all I Think I said it once myself before But somehow I can’t stop I wanna spiral Until we’re on the same level You left you said it’s no ones fault That I am just too good for you So now I’m trying to get worse I’m just trying to get worse And I can’t help but daydream turning you away When you really need me But I know that all the good hearted part of me Would say please stay So I’m trying to get worse I’m trying to get worse I’m trying to get worse I’m just trying to get worse

And in this place I learned so many things Like how to be all alone And how to set a fire you don’t want And how some things you can’t control And now we can forget all we see And now even if I could I wouldn’t change a thing Cause we are the lucky ones We’ve got it all to just throw away We can throw it all away Cause we’re the lucky ones I remember once we tried to lose it all If we did I’ll never know Spent so long just trying to figure out Where it is that we belong And now we can circle endlessly And now even if I could I wouldn’t change a thing Cause we are the lucky ones We’ve got it all to just throw away So don’t throw it all away Cause we’re the lucky ones And it’s just blind dumb luck But you got it on your shoulders And this world don’t owe you nothing Cause we are the lucky ones We’ve got it all to just throw away So don’t throw it all away Cause we’re the lucky ones

Reaching out but the past can’t save you Wondering what all the empty souls do Nobody can be sure And if the words go around in circles When’s the best time to stop just cut it off Quit searching for the cure Awake, calling out your name Asleep, calling out your name Holding on just holding on Hoping hope ain’t all we got Who knows where those stepping stones go Holding on just holding on Nothing left keep moving cause Who knows where those stepping stones go And if all this is really happening Look away we don’t know where to begin Or what we’re waiting for Awake, calling out your name Asleep, calling out your name Holding on just holding on Hoping hope ain’t all we got Who knows where those stepping stones go Holding on just holding on Nothing left keep moving cause Who knows where those stepping stones go Forgetting how to swim I’m forgetting how to swim Holding on just holding on Hoping hope ain’t all we got Who knows where those stepping stones go Holding on just holding on Nothing left keep moving cause Who knows where those stepping stones go

These thoughts and this truth Have gotta find their way to make it to you It’s so hard to get right Cause nothing I could say would ever do Cause now everything Is louder than guns and more silent than loss And honestly I don’t know how to put it into useless words Cause you’re so beautiful it hurts Streetlights and lost souls Everybody trying to find a way If real life could replay I never would have made it past that day And if this is real Then my heart will love you till it never learns And honestly I don’t know how to put it into useless words Cause you’re so beautiful it hurts And I can’t believe I let my heart just pull me in headfirst And sometimes it’s like I don’t know how I can live with this thirst And honestly I don’t know how to put it into useless words Cause you’re so beautiful it hurts
9.
I know you’re getting tired the same old situation Always something better Always something gotta do but Always chasing tails never got nobody Nowhere that they wanted Nowhere that they really wanted The only thing I know is This is happening yeah this is real I know you know it Yeah this is real, this is real This is really happening Spending all my time on things that doesn’t matter Always something out there Hard to keep on not remembering That I don’t know that it can be so very Hard to not forget it Hard to keep remembering that The only thing I know is This is happening yeah this is real I know you know it Yeah this is real, this is real This is really happening And when it feels like Life’s gone off track I know it’s so hard But remember that You put it out there And you get it back And right now This is happening yeah this is real I know you know it Yeah this is real, this is real This is really happening
10.
Caught in the wisdom of the crowd And sometimes it’s hard To stop myself thinking out loud If nobody’s perfect how come you are? Your eyes and now I’ve seen it all And I can’t let go Just stop this world right where we are If nobody’s perfect how come you are? If nobody’s perfect how come you are? And I’ll take it all back Believing that anybody knows anything at all If nobody’s perfect how come you are?

Turn the other way look around Something big’s about to happen I swear to God that I’ve been here before And you were here I guess it’s nothing Lost at sea Guess I do know the truth afterall Stay the current course No matter what don’t change for anyone Say you’ll save a corner of your mind Cause I think about you all the time Lost at sea Guess I do know the truth afterall And nothing you can do to turn it back around Is gonna make a difference it’s done it’s happened now So take me where you go Watercolour eyes And we can start again You'll never know if you never try
12.
Long ago I knew a boy Who’s heart was on his sleeve He trusted almost anyone And loved so fearlessly But he knows better than that now He locked his heart away With all the other foolish things And there it’s gonna stay Cause I don’t need anyone And I don’t need nothing Cause I’ve learned that every love Is a ticket to lose And I owe it all to you Nothing ventured nothing gained I’ll take that one as verse Better loved and lost they said But it’s definitely worse So I don’t need anyone And I don’t need nothing Cause I’ve learned that every love Is a ticket to lose And I owe it all to you
