about

Although we were scheduled to go to Nashville and come home with a five-song EP, pre-production conversations and an outburst of songwriting paved the way for 'something' more. During two weeks in Nashville, we recorded a ten-song album! It demonstrates a wide variety of old and new, full band and simple duo, upbeat and mellow songs. We are not only excited to have created our first full-length album, but we are also proud that it embodies an accurate snapshot of who we are today.

Track Name: Your Eyes
Your Eyes
Words and Music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

I tried so hard to gain their sympathy / Their glance it made, it made me so afraid / All their respect and love to guide my ways / Measured and weighed, and I’ve become unmade // Your eyes are all I see / Your eyes are all I need / Your eyes see me free / Your eyes watch over me // What value is there in their stare? / For their love, I no longer care / I’ve grown restless living as their slave / For my mind rests upon their gaze
Track Name: Setting Sail
Setting Sail
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

The wind is blowing out upon the sea / It stops for no one; it’s moving strong and free // So I’m setting sail / I’m gonna let it carry me // The waves are coming to try to take me down / Few have survived them, many more have drowned // But I’m setting sail / Where new life can be found // Hope is arising out beyond the known / It smooths the voyage and guides me safely home // So I’m setting sail / And I pray I’m not alone / So we’re setting sail / And we pray we’re not alone
Track Name: Toward the Sea
Toward the Sea
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

With an old pair of shoes you went walking / One step after the next / Weary and worn, feet just wandering / Hoping and longing for rest // But even here in this, my dear / Is where you’ll find your peace / The sand may seem a desert but your heart is still a stream / So keep on walking toward the sea // You feel as there’s no one to guide you / No clear sight of the path / Tired and torn but determined / To step forward and not look back // But even now when all seems lost / You will find your way // So keep on walking toward the sea / Keep on walking toward me
Track Name: 40 Miles
40 Miles
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

It’s been about fourteen miles since I last turned around / It’s been equally long since anyone’s heard the sound / Of my voice / And my one and only choice / Was to run away and be free / It’s been about eighteen miles since I last turned around / It’ll be any minute now that she will have found / My note / And my one and only hope / Is that the one whom I love would follow me // Follow me, follow me / I can’t seem to turn my heart of stone / Now I’m free from what you say / ‘Cause I’m goin’ my own way / But freedom ain’t so free when you’re alone // It’s been about twenty miles since I last saw her face / It’s been much, much longer that I last thought of grace / But just know / That the further on I go / I learn a little more what it’s like to be free / It’s been about thirty miles since I found this road / And I can’t turn around now ‘cause I’m stubborn as stone / But I’m scared / And my one and only prayer / Is that the one whom I love would follow me // Now I’m free from what you say / ‘Cause I’m goin’ my own way / But freedom ain’t so free when you’re alone / It’s been about forty miles since I last turned around / It’s been equally long since anyone could hear the sound / When my heart breaks / But with every step I take / I learn a little more just where I belong / I wish the one whom I love had come along / I thought that this would set me free, but I was wrong
Track Name: Was It Not Enough?
Was It Not Enough?
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

Woe to the shepherd / Who cares for himself / His comfort and wealth before his sheep / Before his sheep / The lion and the leopard / Are robbing them blind / And soon they will dine on his sheep / On his sheep // Was it not enough to eat from green pastures? / But you ran all around / And trampled ‘em down with your feet / Whoa, with your feet // Woe to the vulture / You prey on the weak / The ones who would seek your help / Seek your help / Should be a protector / You sooth your sheep with your harp / While you secretly sharpen your teeth / Sharpen your teeth // Was it not enough to drink the clear water? / But you filled it with blood / And turned it to mud with your feet / Whoa, with your feet // Will you ever surrender? / Will you heed to the call? / Will you let yourself fall to your knees? / To your knees / For I’ll bring a new Shepherd / Who throws feasts for the poor / And lifts the thieves and the whores back to their feet / Back to their feet // Was it not enough to rest in my arms? / But you ran away / And wandered astray with your feet / Whoa, with your feet
Track Name: Thoughts After a Meteor Shower
Thoughts After a Meteor Shower
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

I saw you in the sky last night / As usual you shined so bright / You told me that you loved me and I said I love you, too / Though I don’t love quite as wonderfully as you / I saw you in the sky with just a glance / I heard you in the music so I danced / And flowing like a river, you danced just like you do / Though I don’t dance near as gracefully as you // And it’s love that keeps us turning / Joy that keeps us burning / Pain that keeps us learning / That you are what we’re for / Love that keeps on trying / Joy that’s never dying / Pain that keeps us crying / For what you have in store // I feel I am filled with such might / You shake your head and smile with delight / Like a child who thinks he’s flying when his daddy holds him high / Though without him he can’t really fly // I’d say you’re filled with love / But that’s still not all true / For you’re not filled with love / But love is filled with you // And it’s love that keeps us turning / Joy that keeps us burning / Faith that keeps us learning / That you are what we’re for / Love that keeps on trying / Joy that’s never dying / Faith that keeps us crying / For what you have in store
Track Name: Home Will Be
Home Will Be
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

You were standing at the edge, ready to jump in / And I can’t tell you, since, how nice the water’s been / I see you and you see me, and still you’re jumping in / And I welcomed you to the water with a grin / So baby stay in // But if you must go, please go / I won’t hold you back / We’re taking it, oh, so slow / And I’m just fine with that / But babe, please know / That I’m hoping for a day / When we no longer say / Call me when you’re home and safe from harm / ‘Cause home will be right here in your arms // They say home is where the heart is, and baby if that’s true / Then I’m far from home each time I’m far from you / You said I’m just what you wanted, that I’m too good to be true / And babe I said the same thing about you / So baby stay true // When you dream, please remember me just a little in your dreams / Think of me when you see the moon and it makes you wanna sing / Baby please sing // But if you must go, please go / I won’t hold you back / We’re taking it, oh, so slow / And I like it just like that / But babe, please know / That I’m hoping for a day / When we no longer say / Call me when you’re home and safe from harm / ‘Cause home will be right here in your arms

The Bridge

(Instrumental)
Track Name: Nature's Lullaby
Nature’s Lullaby
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

Blue bird sits outside my window / Calling to the sky / Baby’s chirpin’, Mama’s coming / To sing her lullaby / The wind is blowing, the leaves are glowing / As the trees reach toward the sky / Shadows dancing on a sunlit stage / And the clouds are passing me by // The sun lights my way / As it falls down from the sky / It reminds me that love will find me / In nature’s lullaby // I know comfort, I know rest / For I know love is near / In the valley of the shadow of death / Love has chased away my fear // It reminds me that love will find me / In nature’s lullaby / In nature’s lullaby
Track Name: What Do You See?
What Do You See?
Words and music by Benjamin & Chelsea Peck

What do you see? Tell me, what do you see? / The dreams that have died or the hopes yet to be? / Someone who’s loved and lost or someone who's learned patiently? / What do you see in sickness? / What do you see in health? / What do you see when you look at yourself? // ‘Cause I see a will to rise again from every fall / I see a soul that’s filled with awe at the wonder of it all / I see a little heaven there wherever you are / And it’s not that far; it’s not that far // Who will you be? Tell me, who will you be? / A prisoner of circumstance or a soul that’s free? / A coward with closed eyes or a fighter with the courage to see? / Who will you be in poverty? / Who will you be in wealth? / Who will you be when you’re being yourself? // I see a will to rise again from every fall / And it’s not that far; it’s not that far / It’s not that far; it’s not that far
