about

This album is about youth. It's about growing up. It's about love. It's about loss. It's about joy. It's about hardship. It's about hope. We're so proud to share it with you and we hope you like it.

-Jonathan Ray and the rest of Tall Bear

about

Tall Bear Atlanta, Georgia

"Tall Bear was born out of a simple idea: write, play, & create music that mattered to us. Though my California roots may affect the sound of our music, the heart behind it isn't concerned with musical style, but with honesty. And we'd love to share that with you."

-Jonathan Ray

Track Name: Young Love
Searching without a clue,
all the mysteries of love I couldn't find till I met you.
Black dress and cowboy boots,
Darling nothing in the room could steal you from my view.

Oh we were so young just like everyone.

Beating my heart like a drum, oh there's really nothing like it,
love a game i thought we'd won.

Oh we were so young just like everyone.
Oh this love is a fire burning up the desires of our youth
till it's just me and you.

Patience was not a word we knew,
we were jumping off of cliffs and every gap that we came to.
Spinning we were out of control but darling you don't have to worry, stronger love has taken it's hold.

Oh we were so young just like everyone.
Oh this love is a fire burning up the desires of our youth
till it's just me and you.

The way is closed but this fire grows.
The years will show and darling then we'll know.
Track Name: Oceans Away
I miss you, and I've been trying to find
as many other ways to say that I miss you
you're oceans away from where I am
but I feel so close to you,
I'm pressing in to your heart.
I'm writing you my dear the secrets of my heart
only you can see right through me.

Oh, I count the days till you're on your way back
Home, I count the days till you're on your way back home.

Looking back, I never saw all the signs
of the lines that led us here
but now they seem so clear
You could be oceans away from where I am
but no space could steal my love
only you have my heart

Home, I count the days till you're on your way back home.

I'm missing you baby,
you know you have my heart.
Track Name: Find You
glass hearts in a bed of stone
Eden is not our home anymore
you know i feel so far
from where you are

the armor love we once adorned
couldn't stop the coming storm
cause there is a war inside
from which we cannot hide

i don't want to board up these doors
i don't wander alone
where i can't find you, where i can't find you

toss and turn in my bed
i wish i was with you instead
but Paris feels so far
like some distant star

i'd swim the seas to be with you
and face my fears to know the truth
but i will wait for you
oh i will wait for you

i don't want to board up these doors
i don't wander alone
where i can't find you, where i can't find you
i just want to win back your heart
we can still go back to the start
can i still find you? can i still find you?

remember that night at the park?
remember what you said in the dark?
i will always love you, i will always love you
Track Name: Get Your Heart Back
youth, blame it all on youth
but we both know the truth
we've seen too much of these hearts inside
stay, but no anchor holds us in place
should it have to be this heard when it's right?

go get your heart back,
go get your heart back
it's time

stand, like Atlas with tired hands
but i'm a broken man
strewn across an empty land

strong, do i have to be so strong?
still i'm holding on
to the truth i know

go get your heart back,
go get your heart back
it's time

deepest fears our hearts all hold
but patience proves what time will show

go get your heart back,
go get your heart back
it's time
Track Name: Where The Road Goes
one by one the reach the sun
but here i am waiting for someone
in a church that men have built
in a time of trouble and of strife

i feel the string between our hearts
pulling tight as you drive through the night
drive away through time and space
if i love you i will let you go, i'll let you go

i will let you go, i will let you go, i will let you go

i've kept your photo close to me
never knowing when i might need to see your face
this road we know's been long and hard
but all that matters most is where it goes

the darkest part's the hardest part
faith's the only light that helps me see, helps us see
you have my heart but we must part
time will show that we won't walk alone, we won't walk alone

we won't walk alone, we won't walk alone, we won't walk alone

cause heaven's hand will lead us home.
