Ilan Jenkins Love this album. Great energy and catchy melodies. It's even better performed live. Look forward to more shows! Andrés is a friend and I've heard bits and pieces of these songs over the years, and it's great to hear them put together like this. Favorite track: Helios.

Track Name: Follow Me
I had a dream when I was still young
Of a magical being that called me his son
I left all my friends, I left everyone
To live there with him I gave up the sun

Follow Me
Follow Me
Follow Me
Follow Me

(But) he brought the light, he painted the dream
As I sat by his side, his songs we would sing
And though I thought his eyes would never grow dim
One day he was gone and my light with him

Follow Me
Follow Me

Follow Me
Track Name: In a Shade
In a shade I sit and watch
All the people walking out
From the corner and the wall
And I look to find a face
In an old familiar place
In the turning of the fall

My mind is opened wide when you walk by
And who was I before?
What was I waiting for?

In a shade beneath the trees
All the light surrounding me
And something moving in my heart
And I listen to the sounds
Of voices lost and voices found
I wait for the wind to start

My mind is opened wide when you walk by
And who was I before?
What was I waiting for?

In a shade I sit and watch
All the people walking out
From the corner and the wall
And I Iook to find a friend
As a thousand leaves descend
In the turning of the fall

My mind is opened wide again
My mind is opened wide when you walk by
And who was I before?
What was I waiting for?
Track Name: Brother, Stay
Brother, stay
Don't turn away
Brother, stay
Don't turn away

You walk to your room
Holding everything you thought that you knew
And you lie to yourself
In the dark where no one else can see through you
And you say
Nothing good ever comes your way
Nothing real ever comes your way

And you live with a dream
something long lost father dying might have seen
Of a face and a stare and blinding light that left him with no cares
And he said
Nothing good ever came his way
Nothing real ever came his way

Brother, stay
Don't turn away
Brother, stay
Don't turn away

Now you hide from the light
And the ones you love you push them all aside
And your doubts they run deep
All the promises you made you could not keep
And you say
Nothing good ever comes your way
Nothing real ever comes your way
No,Nothing real ever comes your way

There's still time to rearrange
All the things you cannot change
Learn to live with all your pain
You can remain, All your pain
Here you can remain

Brother, stay
Don't turn away
Brother, stay
Don't turn away
Track Name: Letter to Mary
Mary, I always tried to help you
but I could not protect you
I just played my part

Now you wake up every morning,
never knowing where you're going
Or why this broken heart

Oh, no

Your mother and your sisters raised you
but they never praised you
Or let you sing your song

Now you lie awake and wonder,
As the moonlight pulls you under
What it was that you've done wrong

Oh, no

Once you could have faced it
Once you might have changed
Now you try to replace it
To find another name

Maybe
Some comfort there I gave you
But I could never save you
Or keep you from your fate
When you take your last step falling
I won't hear your siren calling the day you let go of your hate

Oh, no

Once you could have face it,
Once you might have changed
Now you try to replace it
to find another name

Mary,
I always tried to help you
But I could not protect you
I just played my part

Once you could have faced it
Once you might have changed
Now you have to replace
Go find another name
Track Name: A Woman so Kind
I once loved a woman so kind
She gave me her heart and she gave me her mind
But we fell out, broken and blind
A key to her world I was hoping to find

And all the while, I kept to myself
I'd dream of a smile, all to myself
And made my way
home

And when at last I pulled myself through
I followed the moonlight to keep me from you
And you stay there, a place in the mind
Where I keep the ones that I've left behind

And all the while, I kept to myself
I'd dream of a smile, all to myself
And made my way
home

I once loved a woman so kind
She gave me her heart and she gave me her mind
But we fell out, broken and blind
A key to her world I was hoping to find

And all the while, I kept to myself
I'd dream of a smile, all to myself
And made my way
home
Track Name: There Must Be
There must be a way for you and me to live alone
To keep from being blown away again
Just because we can't pretend
If only I could just pretend

That we're not sick of all the scenery
So suddenly, you don't look the same to me
I can't begin, till I've made some room within
Just a little space within

But far away another sun begins to shine
Along the way I might find the words to make it mine
Now we can't stay and I have to go alone this time
I have to go alone this time
I have to go alone

Your rock and roll, it's lost almost all its soul
Your twist and shout, has gone away and now I'm finding out
You keep me dry, but all I want is a clean goodbye
All I need is a clean goodbye

But far away another sun begins to shine
Along the way I might find the words to make it mine
Now we can't stay and I have to go alone this time
I have to go alone this time
I have to go alone

But far away another sun begins to shine
Along the way I might find the words to make you mine
Now we can't stay and I have to go alone this time
I have to go alone this time
I have to go alone
Track Name: All Grown Up
All grown up but nothing much to show
You thought by now the reasons would be known
But there's no more time
To find what went wrong
Why we stay behind
Where we don't belong

Seven years spent looking on the past
The faces and the names that would not last
But there's just no way of living in regret
What we didn't say, what we could not forget

I was looking for a long time
I was looking everywhere
And I went looking in my own mind
But I could not find you there
No, I could not find you there

All Grown up but nothing much to show
And now you try to find a way back home
Because there's still some time, to lay down a song
Of where we want to be, of where we can belong
Track Name: Cathedral
Adelaide, the plans we made are buried far away
Soon I fear they'll find us here and lay our love to waste

Run through the dawn and far beyond
So I can see your face
Ride through the night dark and wide
I'll meet you in our place

Cold stone walls, cathedral halls, no longer keep me safe
One by one I hear the drums, a sentence to my grave

Run through the dawn and far beyond
So I can see your face
Ride through the night dark and wide
I'll meet you in our place

Hide behind the river's bend until the black smoke ends
Soon you'll be back home with me and we can dream again

Run through the dawn and far beyond
So I can see your face
Ride through the night dark and wide
I'll meet you in our place

Adelaide, the plans we made are buried far away
Soon I fear they'll find us here and lay our world to waste

Run through the dawn and far beyond
So I can see your face
Ride through the night dark and wide
I'll meet you in our place
Track Name: Helios
I tried to keep you in my arms
I thought you'd lead me from all harm
But when I see you in my dreams you turn to leave
I carved your image in the stars
And you'd send your guidance from afar
But now I've fallen so far down
And You make now sound
Have I let you down
You make no sound
Have I let you down

You let the son die in your hands
I though that you were in command
But now it seems your heart has changed
Am I to blame
No longer waiting to receive
I'm left with nothing to believe
So now I won't call your name out loud
And You make now sound
Have I let you down
You make no sound
Have I let you down

As I start to rise
Now I realize
I don't need you now
I don't need you now
Track Name: Together and Alone
I see through the lies you told
Words of love but nothing to hold
You're not what you say you are
No, You're not what you say you are

I tried to believe but I could only deceive myself
I wanted to leave but I could only repeat myself
And lie down there with you again

I loved you more than I could admit
I knew one day I'd just have to quit
And you won't control me from afar
No, you won't control me from afar

Hold on to the hope
Hold on to a memory
I thought I could cope
but I was living in fantasy
You know me
I come back again
I come back again

I see through the lies you told
Words of love but nothing to hold
You're not what you say you are
Oh No, You're not what you say you are

Hold on to the hope
Hold on to a memory
I thought I could cope
but I was living in fantasy
You know me
I come back again
I come back again
Track Name: Bessie
Bessie, hold me tight
We might not make it through the night
We might not make it to the light
But we still have some time

Bessie, close my eyes
They've seen through your paradise
The've seen through your suicide
And they're not longer mine

Someday when you go
Faling far and falling slow
Someday when you leave
There will be no message received

Bessie, turn the tide
To when we walked the riverside
To when we walked the open wide
There was no need to hide

Someday when you go
Faling far and falling slow
Someday when you leave
There will be no message received

Bessie, hold me tight
We might not make it through the night
We might not make it to the light
But we still have some time

Someday when you go
Faling far and falling slow
Someday when you leave
There will be no message received
