This single was written during a fairly awful period in my life.
But it made these two songs possible, so I guess that's a plus side?

Special thanks to Bernie Mireault for providing us with the great cover art and being so cool.

RECORDED JUNE 2012 - JULY 2013 (Hey, it was a shitty year!)

Track Name: Gathering Horses
Just when I thought it was different
Now I see it was all the same
I thought you were so perfect
But now I see you were playing games with my heart on the line
Although it was screaming for me to run far away
From the place where trust was such a fragile thing
Now I know, they were lies
And truth was hidden behind your eyes
How was I so blind
When everything was oh so clear

Caught up in gathering horses
Too caught in the swirl of the new to see this is wrong
Caught in the lure of the wicked
Caught on the outside of my life (again looking in)

Why did I let it go so long
Why didn't I heed the warning signs
When everything said was so wrong
Knowing your past wasn't far behind
You never left, did you
You just hid it away to come back to it another day

Now that I've closed the door upon you
My mind so much clearer since you have gone
The struggle I had when I knew you
Is now gone, gone, gone
Track Name: As Winter Fell
As winter fell into your hearth
The bitter cold tore you apart
And the new day comes again
But everything had come to end

Upon the frozen shore
I see figures not seen before
As they approach and come to view
I find something new (I found you)

But all the pain left in the past
Leaves the scars that always last
The color of spring will open eyes
And once in focus I realize

As seasons come and seasons go
But with you I'll always know
The flame that burns inside our heart
Won't let the cold tear us apart
