about

Even if we know that love is all we need to give and receive, taking that into action is a lot harder than it seems. We specify love as helping the poor, or the sick, or the weak. But in places like America where most of the poor aren't really poor, the sick have health insurance, and helping the "weak" is usually only an act of arrogance how are we supposed to love everyday?

I wished this song to have a very raw and untouched feel, but because of our available resources, it wasn't possible to simply record everything live. Thus we have a produced song that wished it were rawer. This is a song to me that can only be expressed correctly by very honest expressions by our instruments and the lyrics they guide and these expressions differ from day to day and in my opinion should not be captured without the proper context, I.E. a live show. But I still wished to share it with you, so here it is.

lyrics

Once afraid of moving forward
Now I run away from the same
The days are long
As I don't know them
Maybe I've fallen
Fallen hard for change

Days go by
And I am waiting
Don't leave me wondering

I want to heal you
I want to touch you
But I don't know how
In the midst of everyday

It's that fire in your eyes
That passion realized
To reach out before I pull in
Familiarity narrows my mind so I know
I've fallen
Fallen hard for change

Days go by
And I am waiting
Don't leave me wondering

I want to heal you
I want to touch you
But I don't know how
In the midst of everyday

And I can't take it back
All that I've done
No it's all in the past
I can give you my heart and my soul
Because it's all I've left to give
I'll give you my heart and my soul
I'll give it to you

I want to heal you
I want to touch you
But I don't know how
In the midst of everyday

about

apollo and Lacuna Nashville, Tennessee

Definitively progressive with use of odd time signatures and key changes, apollo and Lacuna's music takes blues-rock in a whole different direction, taking on the carnal folk style of Iron & Wine, the subtle whispers of Simon & Garfunkel, the beautiful oddities of Sigur Ros, and the blues infused pop of John Mayer. It's clear that apollo and Lacuna reaches for a more evolved musical experience. ... more
