about

I recorded this album back in December 2013 and it was finally mixed by summer 2013. Since I've been sitting on this album, not sure what to do with it for months now, I've decided to let you all have it for free. I'm working on a full band record, set to be out in March/April 2015. Stay updated on the new full band record, as well as new shows and merch on our FB page... www.facebook.com/herestothelife.

Track Name: Goodnight, I Mean Goodbye
Your days are done and my nights are over
Now everything is as dark as an undertaker
I think I'm giving up on this thing that you call love
It's hard enough to keep my head straight and sober
You have your bags all packed, you said goodbye mom and dad
And now you're leaving me and you're leaving this town
I think it's time for you and I to be honest just for once
We never had a good thing just a falling out

This drug has finally taken control
Of your mind, your body, and soul
And you're leaning up against the ropes
I can't find your shadow as I follow you home

Well this is goodnight
I think I mean goodbye
Track Name: You Vs. Her
Everyday is the worst day of my life when I'm with you
I know it's cruel but it's very true, it's just the things you do
And everyday from nine to five I work to keep my life in check
But every night from five to nine you're always there to break my neck

And I, just want, you to be out my life
And I, don't care, what it takes to make that happen

Let's do the damn thing, let's try not to get caught
Are you having fun with this loaded gun? Because it's what we've got
And I'll pull the trigger if you promise not to run
Or we can keep this secret underground for years to come

Everyday is the best day of my life when I'm with her
I know it's cruel but it's very true, she's just what I prefer
And everyday from nine to five I work with her on my mind
And every night from five to nine she's always there 'cause she's so kind

And I, just want, her to be in my life
And I, don't care, what it takes to make that happen

Let's do the damn thing, let's try not to get caught
Are you having fun with this loaded gun? Because it's what we've got
And I'll pull the trigger if you promise not to run
Or we can keep this secret underground for years to come
Track Name: Goodbye Today
I'm falling down at the sight of you leaving
I can't believe that we are departing
I'm holding on, I can't let go
I'm staying strong 'cause I love you so
I'm on the road and I've got ambition
I ain't leaving 'til you answer my questions
A curvy road, a misled turn
Here I go with another lesson to learn

I've seem to have lost this race
Didn't get to say goodbye today
As the tears fall down my face
As this world flies by so high

Goodbye today
Track Name: Don't Believe The Hype
Hey, yeah you'll be ok
Stop living in the night, you'll be quite alright
You'll be a-ok
I said hey, yeah you'll be ok
Don't worry when they talk
They only like to talk 'cause they hate themselves

Here you are, you're lonely once again
Don't worry one day this will end
And you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype
Sex, drugs, and all sorts of pills
I know just how they make you feel
But you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype

Hey, yeah you'll be ok
Don't worry how you're dressed you're not born to impress
You'll be a-ok
I said hey, yeah you'll be ok
You're doing what you can and what you can is all you're doing
You'll be a-ok

Here you are, you're lonely once again
Don't worry one day this will end
And you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype
Sex, drugs, and all sorts of pills
I know just how they make you feel
But you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype

Step one: you've gotta find your faith
Achieve your goals just don't stand in place
Step two: is always up to you
Stay true do what you wanna do
Step three: you've gotta learn to laugh
Forgive and forget the past
Step four: you've gotta make a change
If you want your life to rearrange

Hey girl, I see you're happy now
You've got a smile wider than a cloud
And you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype
Hey girl, I see you're happy now
You've got a smile wider than a cloud
And you are what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype

So don't, don't, don't believe the hype
Track Name: My Life
These days just pass me by
I've got that bloodshot in my eyes
I don't know what I did
I think I fucked up as a kid
But I will be ok
I think I'll make it out someway
This ain't a game we play
This is a thing we call life

Until the sun goes down for good
You'll see me hustle in my hood
This is my nine to five
Surviving day and night
This ain't a game, oh no it's not
The is life, my life

They've got these pills for you
They take your cash, they sell you booze
I know it's sad but true
Ain't this the land of the free?
But all we do is crime
You've gotta kill to make a dime
And I'm ok with that
I ain't gonna starve tonight

Until the sun goes down for good
You'll see me hustle in my hood
This is my nine to five
Surviving day and night
This ain't a game, oh no it's not
The is life, my life

These are my struggles
I wear them on my face
So now I hustle
I work everyday
This ain't no puzzle
I just lost way
And all my troubles
I light and smoke them all away

Until the sun goes down for good
You'll see me hustle in my hood
This is my nine to five
Surviving day and night
This ain't a game, oh no it's not
The is life, my life
Track Name: Best Friends Won't Leave Your Side
Welcome to the best year of my life
I made a move with a friend and I wouldn't think twice
This is Kansas City in the summer time
We do what we do and we do it right

We're on this road tonight
And we just wanna let you know that...

We all
Wish that
We could be forever young and
We all
Wish that
We could be forever young and live out all our lives together


Welcome to the best year of my life
And I've got my friends right by my side
We skate these streets as if we're kings
And we represent our scene with ink

We're on this road tonight
And we just wanna let you know that...

We all
Wish that
We could be forever young and
We all
Wish that
We could be forever young and live out all our lives together

The best year of my life
Welcome to the best year of my life
Track Name: Come On, Come On!
You try, you try, to drop me like I'm dead
I'm stuck, I'm stuck, I'm always in your head
I feel, I feel, we should have met years ago
Come on, come on girl, what are you waiting for?

I know, I know, what you're so afraid of
This love, this love, don't be so ashamed of
Just shout, just shout it out, and scream it loud and proud
I swear, I swear girl, I won't let you down

Alright, alright, let's give it one last shot
I think, I think that, you want what I got
Just say, just say the words, and I'll come right through the door
Come on, come on girl, what are you waiting for?

I know, I know, what you're so afraid of
This love, this love, don't be so ashamed of
Just shout, just shout it out, and scream it loud and proud
I swear, I swear girl, I won't let you down

Come on, come on girl
I just want to make you smile
Come on, come on girl
I just want to make you smile
Come on, come on girl (Come on, I just want to hold your hand)
I just want to make you smile (Won't you let me be your man)
Come on, come on girl (Come on, let's make this last awhile)
I just want to make you smile (I just want to make you smile)
