about

This is the EP that we handed out as a gift at our wedding. (Remember, it's the thought that counts!) Perhaps you weren't able to make it to our wedding, or perhaps the hastily scribbled-on, home-burned CD we gave you has long since vanished. In any case, here is our Made with Love EP, yours to download and cherish.

Track Name: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
why even leave if it's just to return again?
like the jealous moon would say to the sun

but it's hard to stay content here
the grass is always greener
so let's keep moving
like the seasons and the tides

but when you grow tired and bored and homesick
you'll realize that everything you love
is everything that you used to know

absence makes the heart grow fonder

why fall in love if you're still so unsure of it
hide from your loneliness
beneath the sheets of her bed

but you'll just end up with an empty heart
to match your empty bottle
just one more pretty face to add
to your list of regrets

but if I, if I could learn from my mistakes
and not just stumble forward blindly
in the dark, arms outstretched

then I could tell you to your face
that I have learned my lesson
that I'm changing my ways

but I know, I know that I'll come crawling back
cause I've already begun to miss what I had

absence makes the heart grow fonder

Track Name: Smile
there's something different about you
it's like you finally understand
you finally know that I need you sometimes

and you finally realize
when I'm unhappy
you finally know how to show that you care

so if you're trying to tell me that
you love me, it's working
everything you do seems perfect to me
so if I could make just one
simple suggestion

I just want to see you smile a little more
because when you do
my heart seems to beat a little
faster than before

now I feel so grateful
the things so many people dream of
we simply have

and we go perfect together
we can accomplish anything
I've never felt so invincible

but your smile is my sunshine
and I'm not too fond of cloudy days
I want every day to be beautiful together

and I just want to see you smile a little more
because when you do
my heart seems to beat
a little faster than before

and when it goes away
I just cannot wait to
see you smile at me once more

won't you smile at me once more

Track Name: Big as the Sky
if my dreams are like the sea
I'd say they're a mystery
no I can't really see that deep

for each grain of sand, there's a moment I've lived
that holds no real significance
that will never be seen again

but combined that's all that I am
just a product of sea and land
a castle made of sand

and it's seldom clear but if the weather was fair
I'd be happy to take you there,
oh darling I'll take you there

oh our love is as big as the sky,
and you're as beautiful as the sun is bright
so I'm coming to take your hand,
yeah I'm flying home tonight


the future is as consistent as the clouds in the sky
and I'm holding my hands up high
oh i can feel them as they roll by
and they may get dark and heavy but baby not I,
I say let them open up wide
and spill all that rain they got inside

oh I'm writing this song on the plane,
ten thousand words race through my brain
trying to make it on to the page

and out the window I see those clouds,
boundless and grey
they say I'm finally on my way
on my way back home to you

oh our love is as big as the sky,
and you're as beautiful as the sun is bright
so I'm coming to take your hand,
yeah I'm flying home tonight

Track Name: Cabin by the River
lets keep our clothes in boxes
so we'll never have to pack them up again
we'll travel town to town
and I don't care if we come back here again
as long as you keep me next to you
as long as I can stay for as long as I need to

promise that you'll settle down with me
after this confusion blows over
I've never been the type of girl you see
that would wait this long for anything
but now I feel a new feeling
like somehow this is permanent
like we are permanent

And in my dreams there's always you and me
and in my dreams I beg and I plead
to you I plead

darling wont you please stay with me forever
come with me now or never to the cabin by the river
we'll hide beneath the trees there together
come with me now or never
come with me now or never

for now I'll just keep busy
playing songs that no one cares about
I need a steady beat and melody
to keep me happy in this busy town
you know its different here without you now
its different here without you, but I can deal with it
and its hard I must admit

and I don't know what will happen next
when you're waiting for something
it's nice to know what it is
someone remind me of what it is

darling wont you please stay with me forever
come with me now or never to the cabin by the river
we'll hide beneath the trees there together
come with me now or never
come with me now or never

I'll daydream until you come home to me
I'll daydream until you come back home to me

Track Name: In My Dreams
this lack of sleep has got me feelin' blue
cause in my dreams I can hold you
close like I've been wanting to

in my dreams i can hold you close
in my dreams i can hold you close
in my dreams i can hold you close
like I've been wanting to

but I always stop the alarm clock
get my feet back on the ground
the sky's a brick of charcoal
until that sunlight comes around

and the rays break through the curtain
and leave impressions on the wall
like the ones we left on countless friends
or perhaps they weren't impressed at all

I don't want to have to keep waking up
keep waking up like I do
I don't want to have to keep waking up
unless I'm waking up next to you

oh it's only three more months
til i come home
and we'll be happy then, I know

in dreams we're always together
and I can look into your eyes
and see reflections of constellations
against that dark blue shade of sky

but in the morning they'll slip through my fingers
and soak like raindrops into the earth
and my heart is drenched with loneliness
it's an affliction I cannot cure

Track Name: Again My Friend
candid pictures of you smiling
outside in a t-shirt and blue jeans
let's do that again
my friend
I look through my window
and keep wishing the trees were white with snow
like they were back then
my friend

and I smile at the thought
of seeing you again
my friend

unopened flower buds waiting
for the sun to lend its warmth to them
hidden behind the clouds
only for now

and I smile at the thought
of feeling your warmth again
my friend

I've been trying to think of the future lately
the present hasn't been very entertaining
and thinking about the past, just makes me want it back

a million questions swirl through my mind
and negative thoughts are never hard to find
making it so hard for me to concentrate
on anything that doesn't relate
to you my friend

but I laugh at these thoughts
I could never feel lost
with your arms around me
again my friend
with your arms around me
again my friend
