    What is a “love song”? In todays society of constant gratification and idealized emotion, a love song has been portrayed as a positive song about a romantic connection between two individuals. But love is not always happy. Love and joy are not always synonymous. Love can be pain, wonder, fear, shame, and remorse…Love can be a confusing, all encompassing, and life changing experience.
    This is what we have hoped to capture with this album. We want to embody not just the idea of love, but the reality of it.
    Throughout the album you will hear specific themes that will appear in multiple songs. They represent a specific person or situation that has been a part of our lives. The last track of the album combines all of the main themes to create a new song. A song of hope, a song of minimalism and excess.
    If you listen to this album on repeat you will hear that the last song and the first song flow directly into each other. That was made to represent how love does not have a clear beginning or end. Love is a pattern full of ups and downs. Highs and lows. But without the dark times filled with fear, regret, anger and pain. The times filled with joy, excitement, and understanding would not be as special or impactful.
    We are so happy to present “Love Songs” to you. We hope that you receive as much joy from listening to the album as we had creating it.

Track Name: Known Love
When I saw your face. In a crowded room. Couldn't get too far. I want to be with you.
I'll runaway, runaway to the waves where the morning's softer and a man can feel brand-new.
We'll runaway, runaway for the day where the love is only between me and you.
And our love was all we knew.
I remember when our love felt new. (I remember when we were dancing.)
Didn't have to try to want to be with you.
Leave the worries of today. Untie the ropes and sail away. And it doesn't matter what they say if we have our love to guide the way.
If I knew then what I know now we'd finally get away somehow. We've been searching for this love we found and there's love all around us now.
I'll runaway, runaway to the waves where the morning's softer and a man can feel brand-new.
We'll runaway, runaway for the day where the love is only between me and you.
And our love was all we knew.
Track Name: Goin' a Little too Late
A chance at love. I'll take that bet. And it was never enough but now you're back again.
And I said girl, girl you got me goin' a little bit too late.
Made love all night, we danced all day. I never put up a fight and now you're gone away.
And I said girl, girl you got me goin'. Goin' to little too late
Love making under the moon, in a car, in the backseat, in a parking lot. You were with me we were waiting and I waited such a long long time. Take your time girl, go be carefree. See without me you were nothing but a day dream. Made a man see who he could be. And now I'm singing,
Girl, girl you got me goin'. You got me goin' a little too late.
Track Name: Hello Love
In the morning when I wake up, I see the light in your eyes. And by the way you look at me I can't explain this high. There's too much love, too much pain, too much sorrow, too much shame she said. And as I walked to the car I left the bar, and held my heavy head.
Hello love can you find love.
Too much love, too much pain, too much sorrow, too much shame she said. And as I walked to the car I left the bar, and held my heavy head.
Hello love can you find love.
Track Name: Too Much Love
They said we'd make it at any cost but it's not like that, you're not like that.
I said I love you for all your flaws, but there's just too much to love.
And she said, "I don't want to behave this way, but I just need someone to talk to."
I tried to forgive and give you everything. To give you someone to talk to. I've given it all so now I'm walking away. Don't need no one to talk to.
I tried to be faithful but you were never there for me. And it's hard to be grateful, I don't understand what you need. And If there's ever a problem then you place the blame on me. We've still got a long, long way to go. Oh no no no.
Those early feelings have gone away and it's not like that, you're not like that.
We'll save this love for another day cause there's just too much to love.
And she said, "I don't want to have to end this. Do you think that we could mend this? If you'd only call, we could save it all. Baby what happened to forgiveness? Now you say our love is broken but you have no way of knowing if our love to grow into a single soul."
Baby you know I tried to be faithful but you were never there for me. And it's hard to be grateful, I don't understand what you need. And If there's ever a problem then you place the blame on me. We've still got a long, long way to go.
I could be high enough to lose.
Standing outside I saw you in the rain. I could have left you there feeling cold and ashamed. You know if I knew then what I knew now I could have told you from the start that this would never work out.
Track Name: Weeping Love
Say you won't just leave and try to play these games with me. Try to see the way I see, say you won't just leave.
I never saw the light in your eyes only the pain in your smile. Thought I'd stay for just one night but it seems like we've been here a while.
Fighting over petty things like love and loans and wedding rings. Like broken bones from frozen wings. A heart stain on my sleeve.
Say you won't just leave and try to play these games with me. Try to see the way I see, say you won't just leave. And if you try to go away I could never make you stay. So you want just leave, tell me honestly.
If only I could see how time walked by my side. Slowly lights reminding me. (rotations of my mind)
And as I lay no longer whole. Reminiscing something more. Lingerie across the floor, bags packed by the door.
Say you won't just leave and try to play these games with me. Try to see the way I see, say you won't just leave. And if you try to go away I could never make you stay. So you want just leave, tell me honestly.
I never knew the light in your eyes only the pain in your smile.
Say you won't just leave and try to play these games with me. Try to see the way I see, say you won't just leave. And if you try to go away I could never make you stay. So you want just leave, tell me honestly.
Say you won't, say you won't. Say you won't just leave. Well I know I'm to blame but you don't have to do this to me.
Track Name: The Night's Young (It's ok to dance)
She said that there was a party held downtown just for us. And by the way she smiled I could tell it would be a good time. Well the moon's coming out just over the city skyline and girl you know by the end of the night I'm gonna make you mine, but for now let's just say...
The night's young, the night's young.
We'll have plenty of time for love but the night's young.
One hand on you and a drink in the other. The stars are missing from the sky but they're here in your eyes. And darling you know that you wake up my sleeping mind. I'm here for your love I see through your eyes.
The night's young, the night's young.
We'll have plenty of time for love but the night's young.
Wake up my sleeping mind. I'm here for your love, I see through your eyes.
Track Name: Smoke
In my eyes I see you. Don't you want to?
I see the light and you taste the smoke on my breath.
Track Name: Wide Eyed Love
Sitting down at the bar but I'm sober. Pour a drink cause the night is young. Lost in your eyes, your fragrance is intoxicating. She said, "Let's get out of here, we've been here too long."
So get ready for a good time. I don't know how long we're staying up but it could be all night. We are dancing in the moonlight and you can't keep from moving your feet on a night like tonight.
Left the bar with my arm around your shoulder, I might as well hold you.
Drive cross town in my old man's car.
Young, dumb and in love I invite her to feel this magic.
I watched her eyes grow wide, laying under the sky. Let the world fade around us.
So get ready for a good time. I don't know how long we're staying up but it could be all night. We are dancing in the moonlight and you can't keep from moving your feet on a night like tonight.
Moving across the dance floor, bodies grooving, and we'll dance to the rhythm of the music.
Music moves your body across the dance floor and you can't keep from moving to the rhythm of the music.
Can't keep from moving your feet on a night like tonight. Can't keep from moving your feet to the rhythm of the music.
Track Name: Cautious Love
Tell me what you think about us. What's on your mind? I know you're looking for some kind of reaction but emotions are hard to find. I know it feels like just a basic attraction. I miss the fire we had inside. All the fights, all the love, all the passion. All the nights that we spent side-by-side.
So please don't say I'm nothing. Your steady hard be to starts to soften.
And please don't say that you care if my emotion's the reason you're there.
So please don't tell me nothing if you can't hear what I'm trying to say. We could be something but you had to look the other way.
Don't tell me nothing if you can't hear what I'm trying to say. We could be something more than cautious lovers.
Tell me what you think about life. Is it all just a game? If you took another look in the mirror you'd see more of the same. It's just your lack of personality kills me. Every morning I feel ashamed. And no one saying that they know what this will be but I can't say there's another way.
So please don't tell me nothing if you can't hear what I'm trying to say. We could be something but you had to look the other way.
Don't tell me nothing if you can't hear what I'm trying to say. We could be something more than cautious lovers.
Track Name: Nothing Wrong
Some might say it's a miracle. I was given the chance to see the world.
But who the hell do I talk to when it started to take a turn for the worst. Well I should have known that your personality would get the best of me. Oh no. You couldn't just stop and speak with me. No you had to go and take it all back now.
Alright. That's fine. I took away your chance of living in the spotlight. Alright. It's fine. I'll walk away but I know I did nothing wrong.
I lost something that's a part of me. Gave you music that came from my soul. You seemed to bring out the worst in me. Being gone has sure taken it's toll on those left at home.
I dropped everything to fulfill your dream so your plans wouldn't fall through. But I can't pretend or make-believe you're okay with me but I'll try to defend you.
Alright. That's fine. I took away your chance of living in the spotlight. It's not the first time your friends have walked away because you think that you're right. You said that there's a reason that I can't be a part of what you all represent. Alright. It's fine. I'll walk away but I know I did nothing wrong.
You doing nothing for us. Nothing for no one. Everyone else could see the pain and separation that we had.
What happens next? What happened to us? What ever left? What made you so upset that you had to say that.
Everyone's wrong. Everyone knows that.
Everyone sees the possibility together that we had.
I tried to escape. Tried to be different. Try to be real. Go on and play your games but I could never do that.
Alright. That's fine. I took away your chance of living in the spotlight. It's not the first time your friends have walked away because you think that you're right. You said that there's a reason that I can't be a part of what you all represent. Alright. It's fine. I'll walk away but I know I did nothing wrong.
Track Name: Good Bye Love
I remember all those nights. Patiently waiting till the time felt right.
I waited for so long to tell you I don't want to spend a day without you.
Baby I can't wait another day cause my feelings are here to stay.
And they showed up as we were dancing. And they showed us that our love could still have a chance. And looking in your eyes I remember a time of romance when they showed up. They showed up when we were dancing.
You wake up my sleeping mind I'm here for your love I see through your eyes.
You said you'd love me through all my flaws and I can't get enough of your love.
The way you laugh. The way you smile has kept me feeling this way for quite a while. Fall in my arms, turn the radio on. Let the music play cause the night is young.
And they showed up as we were dancing. And they showed us that our love could still have a chance. And looking in your eyes I remember a time of romance when they showed up. They showed up when we were dancing.
