about

I made a promise following a heartbreak that I would pursue another relationship as I had pursued this one. I'm glad to say that I have, but it came with a loss, and I can't say I didn't feel that loss. Without You is about something joyful, but it's feeling gets lost amidst the sorrow.

Like most of the songs on Of Lions and Liberty, this song originated from a guitar riff I had written years ago. The basic chords and riff never changed, but was greatly expanded over the years with additional parts and, of course, lyrics.

lyrics

Fell back on love was it
More than the roses
A poor man's gilded pennies
Fell back in love
Her eyes were even deeper
But still her heart flew from me

Fell back on love
It was never more than the roses
A poor man's gilded pennies
I fell back in love
Because her eyes were even deeper
But still her heart flew from me

A lonely soul
Moves so much slower I know
I'll always feel alone
As I am without you

While still not over you
I wish to say this to your face
I'll keep my word for you, always
When I come back together
I'll know that I'm here because
I am without you

A lonely soul
Moves so much slower I know
I'll always feel alone
As I am without you

A lonely soul
Moves so much slower I know
I'll always feel alone
As I am without you
As I am without you
As long as I'm without you

Fell back in love
In a whole new way
And still her heart flew from me

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
