full moon tonight up and down and out of sight sun goes down, here comes the night sun goes down, I’ll be alright I know that , it’s a long long journey keeps us up through these nights keeps us circling the center round round, I’m coming down pierce me, pierce you let your love cut me through you know I need what is true you know how much I need you They say it’s been long long journey keeps us up through these nights keeps us circling the center round round I’m coming down river roll over me roll me out to your sea you know I need to be free you know I need you in me I know that its been a long long journey keeps us up through these nights keeps us circling the center round round I’m coming down

Fear 03:50
I am just a stray dog, we are not a few If it’s lies you’re swallowing, then life is hard to chew Sometimes it’s just the sound of your voice that I need, but sometimes it’s the words you say they mean gold to these feet It don’t matter where I put my fear When I’m really pushed it reappears It’s gonna take some love to break this night And fill the sky above with some light I wake up in the morning, my body weighs a ton, and I walk into the kitchen where my dreams come undone Remembering the scene where we’re floating on the lake Well, everyone’s got inner-tubes, ain’t life a piece of cake? No! It don’t matter where I put my fear… Are you really good for me? Am I good for myself? Don’t seem to far from nowhere when your dreams lay on a shelf I run from these tornadoes, does the fear show on my face? When the light of day comes knocking, better hope she brings some grace! It don’t matter where I put my fear, when I’m really pushed it reappears, it’s gonna take some Love to break this night and fill the sky above with some light.

Hail to Helpless Things Hail to the King of Kings God's a big surprise He kissed me with your eyes Hail to Falling Birds Failing falling words God is a big surprise you see it in their eyes I'm falling down the same old thing again And I'm sinking even though I know how to swim In the time it takes to find the things you've left behind Hail to broken jars Ugly stupid scars God is a big surprise How'd you get so wise? I'm falling down the same old thing again And I'm sinking even though I know how to swim In the time it takes to find the things you've left behind Hail to sinking ships the wind is in her hips God is a big surprise He'll kiss you with my eyes I'm falling down the same old thing again And I'm sinking even though I know how to swim In the time it takes to find the things you've left behind

Given a hundred fields yet to plow Given a hundred roads yet to clear Given a hundred mountains yet to climb It takes some time And time is blind But love is calling out your name Life will never feel the same Once your’e free There’s a thousand ways to try But your wings were meant to fly And take you home Given a hundred seas yet to sail Given a hundred rivers yet to cross Given a hundred bridges yet to build But love is calling out your name Life will never feel the same Once your’e free There’s a thousand ways to try But your wings were meant to fly And take you home You might be wandering Might be scared Might feel alone You might be wondering if you’ve Been forsaken Or forgotten, NO! But love is calling out your name Life will never feel the same Once your’e free There’s a thousand ways to try But your wings were meant to fly And take you home But love is calling out your name Life will never feel the same Once your’e free There’s a thousand ways to try But your wings were meant to fly And take you home

We Run 03:17
We run We run Away from the Sun They say you don’t need a savior But I say I need one We run We run Away from Sun They say you don’t need a savior But I say I need one Like trees to the woods Like mountains to the range Well it’s all very strange ya know So we run We run Away from the sun They say you don’t need a savior But I say I need one God knows I need one

Awake 03:12
The bullies in this town they come around And break your body down The bullies in your head they come to bed Use words instead And break your spirit down And I wanna stay awake with you And I wanna stay awake with you The rich man gets his way he gets his say He gets his day Always got a card to play The sea’s a place to be She loves to see the things she sees But she’s not free And I wanna stay awake with you And I wanna stay awake with you The creatures in this town don’t stand a chance They’re turned around Their homes dug up in the ground The little birds that fly They love to love they love to try But you take up all their sky And I wanna stay awake with you And I wanna stay awake with you

I’d like to walk with you and I’d like to talk with you But these things we do We need to see through I’d like to hold you now I don’t mean to fold us down But we need to reveal The things that we feel When Love rocks you Love rocks you Like a baby Like an earthquake Like the sound of this strum Like the beat of a drum Going down down down Life has a way of unraveling the fables Love has a way of turning the tables There will be true love But right now, where is love? There will be springtime But right now It ain’t you and me When love rocks you…. Winter at sundown It’s a hard time for dreamers Today we don’t know What tomorrow will show Walking on water I feel my heart shaking Walking on thin ice I feel the earth Shaking again When love rocks you Love rocks you Like a baby Like an earthquake Like the sound of a strum Like the beat of a drum Going down down down

Little Ship 02:22
Give me a sign Give me some way to tell him that It’s not too late for love And everything like that Give us some time Give us the grace to find a rhyme Give us the space to find a Place where we will love And turn back time This little ship Sinking seems to be We’ve tried so hard Lord But she’s taking on the Sea Help us see Will you come in? You’ll find the place that’s Taking water in And then we will be able To be free and Sail the sea

From the Sky 04:55
No one ever tells you That Jesus drove a chevy They will tell you That he drove a limo To carry what was heavy What a crock! What a mocking of the real birds That fly But all your rivers We run beneath the sun And when I’m on my knees I feel my life undone When your Spirit fills I can walk the hill When your waters fill My heart stills Hallelujah, See the drowning birds fly Hallelujah, How did you see me from the sky? No one ever tells you That the angels are not dressed in white They wear their oil stained feathers and They’re in the back Beholding what is real What is theirs When they can feel But all your rivers We run beneath the sun And when I’m on my knees I feel my life undone When your Spirit fills I can walk the hill When your waters fill My heart stills Hallelujah, See the drowning birds fly Hallelujah, How did you see me from the sky? Hallelujah, So glad you seen me from the sky…..

Fly Free 02:14
I wanna fly free but I’m scared what I’ll see I wanna fly free but I’m scared what I’ll see I wanna fly high but I’m still scared to die I wanna fly high but I’m still scared to die I want you to love me but where will I be I want you to love me but where will I be I want you to love me but will I be free? I want you to love me but will I be free? For once in my life I want to fly free again I want to fly free again Help me Come make your home with me I want to be free Come make your home with me I want to be free Come make your home with me I wanna be free Come make your home with me Come make me see!

I Believed 04:13
Take my life, my only life, my only life Fill me with a water fall, an ocean’s full a songbird’s song Born to love the little ones, the broken birds, the hungry hearts I’m so hungry, I could die. A hungry heart, you hear its cry. I believed a long time And I’veI received a long time. If I listen, you will sing your songs for me and set me free In the morning, I’m afraid, you send me birds you send birds! Blue, he tells me everything, his message in my heart I’ll sing Steady now, you hold my hand in a barren land, I am I am! Everyday I say a prayer, I feel the tear, it’s you I wear. Sing for me a courage song, you broken boy, it’s taking long. When will we be there, we will be where we’re going, where we are. Up from deserts water flows, a flower grows, it even snows!

Sun Goes Up 01:54
Sun goes up in the sky in the daytime Sun goes down at the end of the day Moon goes across the sky in the nighttime Moon, gone, hides at the end of the night And I laugh Cause I know That the sun raiser has raised me And I laugh Cause I know That the moon finder Has found me and you Doo doo doo doo Doo doo doo doo

Emily 02:46
The River took Emily It took me down too I was just hoping that something was new You burn like a fire You yearn for the sun You turn like a river and thats how you run Danny was following lugging his load and you were home praying that he would not fold I was just hoping that nothing would die Were all gonna dance but were still trying to hide Wandering stumbling fumbling fools Green and blue nothing until your love rules Well dance with the angels Your brother will too Well praise like children with nothing better to do Some would say Jesus is waiting up there But I would say Jesus is sitting right here Raising a glass for a hard days work done And toasting us all for the way that loves one

I’m waiting in between what is seen What is coming, what is here and what has been I’m waiting in between what is done, what is finished, what is here and yet to come But while I waited down here for more You were coming in quietly backdoor You did not come in like a fire, like a storm or like a shark You were just standing by a lamppost like an angel in the dark I’m waiting in between what I fear, what I long for what I love and what is here I’m waiting in between what I lost, what I hoped for what I took and what it cost I’m waiting for this heart to change For a bigger wind to blow and rearrange But while I waited down here for more You were coming in quietly backdoor You did not come in like a fire, like a storm or like a shark You were just standing by a lamppost, an angel in the dark You were the empty handed waiting for a word or for a score You were a million stricken voices lying naked on the floor

Half Of 03:22
I am half the daughter half the son Half a woman half a ton Half way on my way to being sane I am half as smart as he is I have half the heart that she does I am half and half of really being free And I wonder where you go When there’s only half the whole And I wonder what’s become Of being free I am half the dreams you dreamed of I am half of what I seemed I am half the child you just will not see I am half of being separate I am half of being with you I am half as gentle As the words you say And I wonder where you go When there’s only half the whole And I wonder what’s become of Being free And I wonder where we’ll go When we can’t play in the snow And I wonder how we’ll sail Without a sea I am have the voice I have I am half the choice you gave me I am half of what it means to save a tree I am half foot in the water I am half afraid of drowning I am half and half Of really being free And I wonder where you go When there’s only half the whole And I wonder what ‘s become of being free And I wonder where we’ll go When we can’t play in the snow And I wonder how we’ll sail Without a sea

I am just here, know less than I knew, have faith where I don’t belong see the body hanging from a tree some crazy love got a hold on me I ask for angels to walk me home When I turn corners and feel so all alone Now I lay me down, some peace around All the wars, all the rage, all the cries and every stain I ask for angels to walk me home when I turn corners and feel so all alone, this is the place the time when your touch rhymes No I don’t know, I just believe you ask me if it’s real or not, but at the end of the day, I just receive. I ask for angels to walk me home when I turn corners and find myself alone. This is the time, the place, when I seek your face.

about

Deb Montgomery Seattle, Washington

With the intentionally primal sounds of heavy drums and fattened bass sounds, This edgy and energized EP, Montgomery brings her rock roots to the forefront and continues to explore the depths of grace needed to move through life’s vulnerabilities and losses. The beauty of arranged strings sprinkled throughout the album brings the paradoxical lightness that can sound like grace in the midst. ... more
