Randy Jones A very promising set of tracks for such a new band. I'm surprised these guys even call these songs "demos" when the sound quality and song structuring sounds so finished. A very cohesive and interesting bit of music and I'm excited to see where they go from here. Favorite track: When I Leave.

Track Name: Timberwolves
I am a wolf in sheep's clothing
Loathing the loneliness
Of this forest

The shepherd will lead
All his sheep away
To places that I
Oh I'll never go

(Ohhh)

I was a wolf in sheep's clothing
Until the day that I met you
I was a mess when you took me
Into the pack
I'll never go back

Now I run with you
You
You

(Ohhh)

Wolves run with wolves
As sheep roam with sheep

Oh Timberwolves
When I'm with you
I feel home
Track Name: Higher Living
Stars like hanging Christmas lights
Fill the void that is the night sky
Little moments fleeting
In the twinkling of an eye

(oooh)

I'm holding on so tight
I don't know, but this feels right
I don't know if this is right

I'm holding on for life
I don't know, but this feels right
I don't know if this is right

I know now
That I want to live among the stars
My soul belongs among the stars
(oooh)

I know now
That I want to live among the stars
My soul belongs among the stars

I lay awake alone tonight
And open up my eyes so wide
The overwhelming choices
The overwhelming voices
In my head

I'm holding on so tight
I don't know if this is right
I don't know, no

I know now
That I want to live among the stars
My soul belongs among the stars

I know now
That I want to live among the stars
My soul belongs among the stars
Track Name: Constellation
(I'm just a constellation)
Track Name: Patient
It’s dark all alone; there’s clouds overhead
You find a hospital bed and lay right down
You open your eyes, scared to exist
You follow the bright blinking signs out to the door

And you count to four

You take a deep breath and tighten your robe
You're scared cause you're blind to what's right in front of you
You give a big push; the door opens wide
You squint from the sun shining brightly overhead

And you're out of bed

You step through the door; feet in the grass
You hear some birds chirping loudly in the trees
This feeling's so strong, you start to run
You open your mouth and you yell at the top of your lungs

And you're having fun
Track Name: When I Leave
Oh I'll love you when I leave
But will you love me when I'm back

Was it just honey
Or a bust no
All the time and money
To have loved and lost

I hope not to be
Rope that ties you to
Me oh mon cherie no
Not when I leave

I can't no I won't
Ask you to wait
But when I'm back
Will I be staring
At your sparkling wedding ring

These are the reasons that I sing

Oh I'll love you when I leave
But will you love me when I'm back

Oh I'll love you when I leave
But will you love me when I'm back

Oh I'll love you when I leave
But will you love me when I'm back

I know he'll be just
As much of a
Gentleman
But I really shouldn't speculate no

I hope not to be
Rope that ties you to
Me oh mon cherie
Not when I leave

I can't now I won't
Ask you to wait
But when I'm back
Will I be staring
At your sparkling wedding ring?

These are the reasons that I sing

La daa daa I hope you're happy
In my cold day dreams
You're with some prince charming
Laa daa daa I hope you're happy

Oh I'll love you when I leave
But will you love me when I'm back

Oh I'll love you when I leave
But will you love me when I'm back

Oh I'll love you when I leave
But will you love me when I'm back
