Made It Out Alright
Matt Simons, Dan Nigro, Trent Dabbs - 2018 / From 'After The Landslide'

 

We were just kids
Ignoring what our parents said
Sneaking down to the basement
Was it really love we were chasing?
Were we just trying to get away?

But truth is
It was a high we never tasted
As we were lying there naked
Is she gonna find it other places?

Well she did

So I’ll tell you heartbreak won’t break ya
I’ll let you know I sleep just fine
Even though the world’s gonna shake ya
The view is always worth the climb

If there’s another risk worth taking
Go and take it every time
Life is only what you make it

I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright
I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright

We were just kids
Ignoring what our parents did
Playing songs in a basement
Barely knew what we were saying
We were just trying to run away?

But truth is
It was a high we never tasted
While looking out on all the faces
Is everybody gonna hate it?
Well they did

So I’ll tell you heartbreak won’t break ya
I’ll let you know I sleep just fine
Even though the world’s gonna shake ya
The view is always worth the climb

If there’s another risk worth taking
Go and take take it every time
Life is only what you make it

I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright
I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright

You are not alone
No one knows the way to go
You are not alone
No one knows the way to go
You are not alone
No one knows the way to go
You are not alone

And I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright
I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright

I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright
I think we made it out alright
Think we made it out alright

Open Up
Matt Simons/Emily Warren/Scott Harris/Dan Romer 2019 / From 'After The Landslide'

 

You’re hard to talk to with that wall around you

Don’t look at me that way

 

What can I do to build that bridge to find you?

I don’t know what to say

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Why don’t you tell me what’s really on your mind?

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Tell me what you need so we don’t have this fight

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

I know it’s a front you’ve been hiding behind

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Why don’t you tell me what’s really on your mind?

 

I know you want to do that thing you always do

You get in your head

 

When that door stays shut it puts this space between us

You make it hard to guess

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Why don’t you tell me what’s really on your mind?

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Tell me what you need so we don’t have this fight

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

I know it’s a front you’ve been hiding behind

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Why don’t you tell me what’s really on your mind?

 

I don’t believe the last thing that I said’s

The real reason you’re so upset

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Why don’t you tell me what’s really on your mind?

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Tell me what you need so we don’t have this fight

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

I know it’s a front you’ve been hiding behind

 

Come on and open up

Open up, my love

Why don’t you tell me what’s really on your mind?

And open up

(come on and open up)

And open up

(come on and open up)

Yeah open up

(come on and open up)

And open up

 

Amy’s Song
Matt Simons/Amy Kuney/Agrin Rahmani - 2018 / From 'After The Landslide'

When Cupid shoots his arrows
Oh he doesn’t always aim
People on the straight and narrow
Seem to wander now and then

Does your god really give a damn?
Does your god really give a damn?
Does it make me less of a man being who I am?

You can’t fight how the heart is
I’d rather make it on my own
From the mouth of my own momma
She said, “You can never come back home”

Does your god have me on the run?
Does he not take everyone?
Does it make me less of your son loving who I love?

We’ve explored the darkest oceans
We can count the galaxies
When I act on my emotions
Will the sky rain down me?

When the sun comes up tomorrow
On our side of history
Will the higher love that we know
Hold a light to those beliefs?

Does your god really give a damn?
Does your god really give a damn?
Does it make her less of a woman?
Does it make him less of a man?

Does your god really give a damn?
Does your god really give a damn?
Does it make her less of a woman?
Does it make him less of a man?

Does your god really give a damn?
Does your god really give a damn?
Does it make her less of a woman?
Does it make him less of a man?

Does your god really give a damn?
Does your god really give a damn?
Does it make me less of a man being who I am?

Being who I am

We Can Do Better
Matt Simons, Emily Warren, Scott Harris, Dan Romer - 2018 / From 'After The Landslide'
We can do better
We can do better

I know it hurt bad
Your mom left your dad when you were a little girl
You think I’m gonna leave cause history repeats, we’ve seen it around the world

All that we’re told is this’ll get old, we’ll cheat and we’ll both get hurt
Against all the odds we’ll pray to the gods
That this love works

When all we see is bad blood and mistakes
All we hear is sad songs ’bout heartbreaks
And no matter how long it takes
We’re not gonna give up

We can do better
We can do better
If nothing lasts forever

Things can get rough, we might drink too much and say things we shouldn’t say
Forgive and forget before we go to bed
We’ll be ok

Some people pretend it’s not gonna end and then up and walk away
But that isn’t me I’m not gonna leave
I’m here to stay

I ain’t worried cause the thing is
(We can do better)
I know you and I are different
(We can do better)
I don’t want to overthink it
(We can do better)
I know you and I are different
