Track Name: Enamour
Enamour – Written by Alex Shenton – 2015/05/19


On the roadside sunshine trails teasing me through the trees
Fate is kinda fickle; I fell in love in the land of the lazy breeze
You shiver, shake, and shook with just one look I had to stay
There wasn’t even one word whispered, but I knew I was yours anyway

I don’t really know why I love you baby
But you make me feel like everything is gonna be alright
I don’t really know why I love you baby
Why try explain it when we can be one tonight?

Pretty pieces of pathetic me, finally found a half that fit
Sitting straight before my eyes, just a flame waiting to be lit
You’re the treasure that turned my tide, girl, you got to know
I’m better off by being your side, no matter where we go

I don’t really know why I love you baby
But you make me feel like everything is gonna be alright
I don’t really know why I love you baby
Why try and explain it when we can be one tonight?

Tonight
Gone so long
(Tonight) Tonight is so right – you helped me find me find my way
(Gone so long) Been gone for so long, but I’m here to stay.

I don’t really know why I love you baby
But you make me feel like everything is gonna be alright
I don’t really know why I love you baby
Why try and explain it when we can be one tonight?
Track Name: Promise
Promise – Written by Alexander Shenton – 2015/02/25

What the point of being good with words at the end of the day
(The end of my days)
You held up the world for me and hid what your heart had to say
(What did it say)

Oblivious - I took my chances out on the highway
But I hear your whispers on the wind, wanting me to stay

Lady, I know you’re the promise my heart made to this land
Believe me honey, I never meant to be gone so long
Lady, I know you’re the promise my heart made to this land
Baby I can’t retrace my steps but I swear -

I’ll do you no wrong
I’ll do you no wrong

Nothing quite like swallowing my words with a shot of pride
(That twisted pride)
Chased down my dreams, always myself in mind
(How could I be so blind)

Always learning the hard way; living out my own lies
But I know I’m home when I see myself in your eyes

Lady, I know you’re the promise my heart made to this land
Believe me honey, I never meant to be gone so long
Lady, I know you’re the promise my heart made to this land
Baby I can’t retrace my steps but I swear -

I’ll do you no wrong
I’ll do you no wrong

Catalyst – Written by Alex Shenton – 2015/06/21

Half a locket hangs in our tree; the other side has been trapped free
Rust sprouts and the picture fades; time flows and spills out decades
Wrinkled hands turn the page; forgotten days fill tired eyes
Lost the map and lost my key, my god when can we set our hearts free?

Those times were tough you know,
and I just wasn’t strong enough
Those times were tough you know,
It’s the only time I let go

Not anybody in a way but someday, I’ll make amends
Not anybody in a way but I’ll prove to you what you mean to me
Not anybody in a way but someday, I’ll make amends
Not anybody in a way but I loved you enough to set you free

Took a chance to leave this town, just to learn home was just out the porch
Hedged my bets to lose it all, just to see what I had in my life before
Probably been twenty years or more since I darkened her door
I sewed this heart right back to my sleeve just so you could see

Those times were tough you know,
and I just wasn’t strong enough
Those times were tough you know,
It’s the only time I let go

Not anybody in a way but someday, I’ll make amends
Not anybody in a way but I’ll prove just what you mean to me
Not anybody in a way but someday, I’ll make amends
Not anybody in a way but I loved you enough to set you free

Free,
Free.
