about

Finally, after 10 years in our secret vault of music, here it is! The very first proper recording we did with The Back Pages all the way back in 2010. It was recorded on a farm in Andebu, Vestfold, Norway and we were lucky enough to get our friends Filip and Andreas to help us out with the recording and keys! The cover art is from a hiking trip in Lebanon a few years back.

lyrics

Lyrics:

100 days since I had been back home
out in the desert I was all alone
I was bruised, I was battered, I was scared, I was shattered
hadn't slept for days and my thoughts were all scattered
I shook hands with devil for the second time

I've been running the heats
missing out on the treats
I've been running without knowing why
Now I'm back on my feet
now I'm out on the streets
I've been learning me how to fly

Alone with sun and the moon and the heat and the cold
with the dust and the wind and a heart growing old
I reviewed my constitution, brought on a revolution
I found hope and realized there is no final solution
an old familiar wind blew me back home

I've been running the heats
missing out on the treats
I've been running without knowing why
Now I'm back on my feet
now I'm out on the streets
I've been learning me how to fly

I was rolling out of a hurricane
I had run out of gas, I was left in pain
In the eleventh hour of the hard rain
I was finally going home
On thunder roads, on rolling stones
through badlands, left with broken bones
came back with scars and memories that I'd never forget
When I walked down the avenue
soaked in rain, I thought of you
running there a year ago singing we were born to run
You sent me a letter once in a while
I answered yours from time to time
We were separate wolves in separate woods
but the sky it cleared, through the clouds came the sun
and the sun it shined upon everyone
and the times they were a changing as Dylan had said
We rode into the blood red horizon
we rode until the sun was rising
and left the past behind

I've been running the heats
missing out on the treats
I've been running without knowing why
Now I'm back on my feet
now I'm out on the streets
I've been learning me how to fly

I've been running the heats
missing out on the treats
I've been running without knowing why
Now I'm back on my feet
now I'm out on the streets
I've been learning me how to fly
