This is a free-to-download single from our debut album, recorded between Tidal Records and Pretoria Hill Productions.


Was about that time that I realized
That it was all one big mistake
Yeah, I'd been wandering around downtown
Between alleyways and apartments
And I just couldn't seem to get myself straight
My best years, lost to commitment
No way to circumvent unscathed
No identity to cling to, and nobody to sing to
And I was trapped on the wrong side of the state
I was on the wrong side of the state

Then I looked into your eyes
And I swear it all made sense to me
Didn't come as no surprise
No pretense, or bad memories
I don't know how, I don't know why
But here is where I long to be
Whether in alleyways or apartments
As long as you're here with me

I coast along a winding highway
Got a new companion by my side
And though this journey's long and dark
With nowhere to even stop and park
I'll enjoy every bit of the ride
A circumstance of cryptic meaning
New activities in which to partake
An identity to be proud of
And I'm singing songs of loud love
And I'm on the right side of the state
Yeah, I've been on the right side of the state
