Below the Night (©2017 Anders/O'Bitz) The stars For you I’d buy Below the night We’re just Talkin’ through What we ought to do Still we plan beneath the stars Chance remains the same For two We’re lost Below the night And still Our stars burn bright Can't see Along the way So chance Has much to say Still we plan beneath the stars Chance remains the same For two For two (repeat) Written by Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz Eric Anders - Vocals Mark O’Bitz - Acoustic Guitar Sally Dworsky - Backing Vocals Tyler Nuffer - Slide Guitar Matt Black - Percussions Matthew Emerson Brown - Engineer, arrangement, initial band recordings.

Eyes of Your Loves (©2017 Anders/O'Bitz) Slipped through a crack in my world today uh oh Met this other soul down this world away uh huh Asked this other soul if there’s a safer way He said that’s why he was there to stay Have to take the risk, its the only way uh huh In the eyes of your loves Find your life and your loss Can’t be revised or undone In the eyes of your loves Tried to climb back above that crack today uh huh Have to take some risks change my lonely way uh huh The specter of that other and his lowly stay He haunts all my hopes to do what he would say Their love keeps me from slippin’ away uh huh Chorus Come on and stay Above the cracks today No more slipping away Risk it today In the eyes of your loves Find your life and your loss Can’t be revised or undone With no loss there’s no love Written by Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz Eric Anders - Vocals Mark O’Bitz - Acoustic Guitar Tyler Nuffer - Lap Steel Sally Dworsky - Backing Vocals Steve Moore - B3 Kieth Lowe - Bass Eric Eagle - Drums Matthew Emerson Brown - Engineer, arrangement, initial band recordings.

High to Low 03:57
High to Low (©2017 Anders/O'Bitz) Trying to see all of me And to see me how your eyes can only see High to low concealed to me High to low High to low Chorus: I see it now High to low somewhat foreign to me Don’t see a lot of myself Oh, to see me through your love for me To see Try to see all of me Not just see what your loving eyes can see High to low revealed to me High to low High to low Chorus Ooh ooh ...

Together Must Be Found (©2017 Anders/O'Bitz/Williams) Did we pretend those parts That never made a sound Did you wonder if the act was enough I know, we can’t let down Cast a scene of some model home Never to be found But left together in a place fall over Of love, not simple now I send this letter from a far away at home Earth rises, we head down And I sing this song of wayward days and love I don’t write of those lonely days So far away now I try to sing these songs in my own way They come, somewhere, somehow We remembered on our own today Together must be found Don’t those people live so far away At home, are they here now? Chorus Together must be found We have to feel it, oh To feel it around And we need it, oh Together must be found Together must be found Chorus Hey oh, hey oh, hey oh Feel it all around Hey oh Feel it in the now Together must be found Written by Eric Anders, Coleman Williams, and Mark O’Bitz Eric Anders - Vocals Mark O’Bitz - Acoustic Guitar Tyler Nuffer - Electric Guitar Jake Thorton - Synth Gretchen Yanover - Cello Matt Black - Drums Matthew Emerson Brown - Engineer, arrangement, initial band recordings.
