Recorded live on Guemes Island in the Summer of 2012.


I'd rather try and fail
than sit inside all day
in fear of what I don't know

I'd rather fall in love
than die of a broken heart
in fear of all I can't control

I'd rather hold the stars
I'd rather trust my heart
I'd rather believe in life

Why live in shadows when
you can live your life in light?
Why live in shadows when
you can live your life in light?

I'd rather live than die
I'd rather care than not
I'd rather believe in life


from No Sides, released October 3, 2015
