Be the first to listen to the folk-rock musings of this delightful bearded duo. And by the way... they're not brothers.

Track Name: Winter is Coming
Take time with the love that you have in your hand
Let her know that her love is all that you demand

All that I want is your love
All that I want is your love

Sit on the porch swing in the summer together
Sit with my love and admire the weather

Cause all that I want is your love, my dear
All that I want is your love

Winds picking up when autumn comes near
We can fly kite and go looking for deer

All that I want is your love
All that I want is your love

Winter is coming but ill keep you warm
Sit here together and weather the storm

All that I want is your love
All that I want is your love

Spring has arrived and the flowers return
Drink beer by a fire, watch our worries burn

All that I want is your love
All that I want is your love
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes
It’s okay to wallow in self
Pity
But only for a minute
You see what I need is a sweet melody
It goes:
LA DA DA DE DA DUM

Because what I think and what I said
Is different than the way it should be
And time and time again I say these words
But they mean nothing to me
Oh they mean nothing to me

Lately
I’ve been feeling down and out quite
Shitty
Been having trouble with this little
Ditty
It keeps playing again in my head
Well it said
It said:
LA DA DA DE DA DUM
Track Name: Leavin' Town
Never say never’s when I’ll come around
Cuz I’ll be there before you if I ever leave town x2

I’ll load up this old car
And we’ll see just how far
The rubber
It will take us

The snow, sleet and rain
May amplify the pain
But the sunny day
Will save us

CHORUS

But I’ll roll through the snow
And I’ll strain through the rain
Slog through the fog
Just to return again

And I can’t say I should
And I won’t say I won’t
But I can’t be let down
If I ever leave town

CHORUS

Emotions run deep
And bonds they get stronger
The hair on my face
Will only get longer

And dreams come and go
And some tend to stick
Others just die
Even more tend to shift

CHORUS

I can’t say I should
And I won’t say I won’t
But I can’t be let down
If I ever leave town
Track Name: Ms. Understood
Everybody’s making out
making out better than me
Everybody’s jerking off
jerking off, but still getting ahead
Everybody’s doing it
doing it better than me
Everybody’s getting off
getting off scott free

So please...
please don’t mislead me

Everybody’s coming
coming out to see me tonight
Everybody’s getting laid
getting laid off, but still getting paid
Everybody’s freaking out
freaking out about the littlest of things
Everybody’s making out
making out better than me

Please...
don’t misunderstand me


Chorus
Track Name: Waiting
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
To get it done - let's get it done

No more wishing
No more bitching
No more playing around
Come on now - let's get it done
It's time to go
Let's get it done

I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
To get it done - let's get it done

No more swaying
No more delaying
No more waiting around
Come on now - let's get it done

I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
I've been waiting so long
To get it done - let's get it done
Track Name: Good Ol' Home
living in this place

so old and dark and drafty

but all it takes is you

to make it home

the windows and the doors

broken and unhinging

I'm glad to know you're here

to keep me warm

the water doesn't work so well

the lights they tend to flicker

and the basements gonna flood

after this storm

and when the wind does whistle

through those broken walls

i know it's gonna scare you

from your sleep

living in this place

so old and dark and drafty

but all it takes is you

to make it home

the windows and the doors

broken and unhinging

I'm glad to know you're here

to keep me warm

when the winter comes

and there's snow inside the building

i know that you'll be laughing

as I shovel out the den

but soon the spring will come

everything is melting

watching all the roof leaks

settle in

living in this place

so old and dark and drafty

but all it takes is you

to make it home

the windows and the doors

broken and unhinging

I'm glad to know you're here

to keep me warm

sitting in the front yard

listen to some old Cat Stevens

i love it when you sing

into my eyes

soon it will get better

but for now I'm pretty happy

just to know you're here

i know I'm home
Track Name: Black & Blue
One and one
The road and the sun
A winding path
Journey’s just begun

Through Buffalo
To buffaloes
Mini Wheats
And the open road

CHORUS:

Sometimes knowing
where you’re going
Can keep you from
an awful lot
And sometimes not
will show you what you’ve got

Two and I
An early morning sky
Some fishing poles
And our heads held high

The afternoon
Arrives too soon
On burnt red backs
And baseball caps

CHORUS

And sometimes it hurts to feel those feelings
And sometimes it’s hard to find the meaning
in all of the little things and the big things too
When you’re black and blue and feeling true

CHORUS

Me and three
Against the night
The water black
And one star bright

A course due north
A light ahead
A bit too far
A rocky bed

CHORUS
Track Name: A Man in a Hole
A young man climbs to the top of the world
To find some peace and solitude
But 5 minutes later a couple arrives
And without meaning to be rude - they say:

"Will you take our picture? It's perfect!
The sun's out! The sky couldn't be clearer!" and
With reluctance he says, "Here. Looks great.
Glad we captured the moment you ruined my day."

Then he wandered off somewhere where he couldn't be found
To dig a hole in the ground

Days went by and weeks and months
But he still dug and dug and dug and dug
Deeper and deeper he went, til at last he had found
The quietest place underground

Then he heard, "Hey look! It's that guy who's been digging for years!
We finally found him! The myth! He is real!
Come quick take a picture - 'fore he runs away."
But he did and he hid - alone and afraid
That this would only happen again

A man at the top of the world wants to be left alone
And only lonelinesses guarantee can set him free
Track Name: Memphis
Sittin' on the edge
of a bridge on down near Memphis
Looking back on life
and on better days

Silver linings, day dreams
And a half-had jug of whiskey

Hoping some day
She'll come back to me
I know where I've been
But I don't know where I'm going

But I guess that's how things work nowadays

Dollar to dollar
Day to day
One drop in the bucket's better than a foot down in the grave

Silver linings, day dreams
And a half-had jug of whiskey

Sitting on the edge
Of a bridge on down near Memphis
Looking back on life
And on better days

Sitting on the edge
Of a bridge on down near Memphis
Thinking if the jump is worth the trip
Track Name: Disheartened
It's okay to be disheartened
It only makes you harder
Take the bad
Get mad
Get sad
And get gone
It's okay to be disheartened

Well I never met a failure
That I could not be told was myself
And losers never win
And the winners always lose
It's okay to be disheartened
