Track Name: Under The Olive Trees
Under the olives, you and me
Forming a shape I’ve never seen
Oh hold your palms outstretched to mine
A hundred thoughts to pass the time
I know the way you’ve shined alone
Bright as the moon, a regal throne
Oh clasp your hands and wring them tight
That’s how you’ll make it through the night

Hours put us on
The valleys we walked along
The fear of where we might belong
Is all, all

Under the olives, you and me
Feet on the grass of blue and green
Sun will warm the ground below
And so will rise the earthly glow
And though the summer burns me out
It’s given me none to cry about
But churning hearts, oh pull and tug
And love the trenches you have dug

Hours put us on
The valleys we walked along
The fear of where we might belong
Is all, all
Track Name: Oh! Pears w/ Patrick Ellis feat. Attia Taylor - Haunted Love (w/ Patrick Ellis, feat. Attia Taylor
Haunted Love, I know you
I've seen

I need your sun-warmed smile
I need your sun-warmed smile on my chest
I need it to atone
Atone for my lack of sinfulness

I know you, Haunted Love
