This was the first song Amber and Nathan wrote together!


Been writing songs for fifteen years now
going nowhere fast

Playin' smoky bars and and pretendin' to be stars
nothing seems to last

I'm gettin' tired, but I'm on fire
I want to outrun my past

Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us this time

We've heard the good ones, and sung some worse ones
nowhere to go but up from here

It's time to move in, tear down and start again
we've got blood and sweat and tears

We've got things to say, tired riffs to play
but is it what you want to hear?

Yeah, nothing's gonna stop us this time


from Light + Love, released April 14, 2012
