I wrote this song for Anel after a break up.
The song is about letting go, forgiving, and embracing life.


Fruit that fall too close to the ground
Girls that wait for guys to make sounds
Ships that sail too close to the shore
The waves they make tempt my heart and ravish me to my core


All these things
All these things and more
C'est la Vie my child

All these things
All these things and more
that make us go wild

She should not have lost her head
He should not have trusted his dread
it gave a chance for those to speak the nameless and all of the dead

listen to the right one
listen to the light son
give your heart a break

listen to the light son
listen to the right one
forgive your mistakes
dont listen to your hate
