Album: This is How The Wind Shifts

Track: 17 on the Addendum

Shane Told: on his very own album

“The idea of this album is how a person’s life can change forever with just one event. It is the “what if” that everyone thinks about from time to time. This album is different from a typical start tofinish story concept album, or an album where all the songs have a common theme. Each track has a parallel track that tells the story in a different light, what would have happened if things were different due to a single event. The song titles of each parallel track go together, forming a sentence or in some cases two words that relate to each other and to the story. Overall, the point of this album is not to prove the existence of fate, or to disprove it. It’s a discussion of life, of loss, of and , of success within failure, of failure within success, of the struggle between your actions and your feelings, and how those don’t always go together. This Is How The Wind Shifts is a journey that jumps around but stays cohesive, with underlying meaning and stories that have a real human meaning and cater to the soul.[11]

To Live and To Lose
To Live and To Lose

“To Live And To Lose”

Follow painted lines along the way back to see you
Fighting sleep and drifting in the rain, I couldn’t get through
I was thrown from my mind with no one there to catch me
To lead me back to life
Had to leave it behind and send my other on her way

Will you break when you realize I’m gone
Counting days until the season you move on
I’m having doubts if you can still feel me at all
Out here looking on while you’re falling in love

I was thrown from my mind and you’re not here to catch me
To make it all feel right
I’ve been trying to find a way to get back to you
And say I’m sorry

When I found a way to calm down, a disguise of yourself without me
Your heart was so strong, I thought you’d moved on
But you can’t carry on without me

I was thrown from my mind and now I’m here to beg you
To move on with your life
You can leave me behind
I am the voice in your head that tells you it’s alright

I was thrown from my mind with no one there to catch me
To lead me back to life
Had to leave it behind and I have to accept it
The way it all has to be, has to be, has to be now
The way it all has to be, has to be, has to be
The way it all has to be

Silverstein // Departures

You’re killing me kid, but I know your intentions are good
I read what you wrote out, ask me to slow down, I should
I think you’re trying to make it seem like it never could’ve meant enough
But what I’m hearing you say is that you’re running away ‘cause it meant too much
So this isn’t easy, I know the weather in never the best
San Francisco got cold as I read your note walking Venice to Oak
You said I guess I’ll be home soon, but things will be different I’m sure
So I thought that you should know, if things are gonna change when you come home
Maybe this time don’t…
