about

Introducing a heroic, vibrant, eclectic, dark-yet-hopeful alt-pop release from Los Angeles-based Secret Trees. Echoing influences as diverse as Bon Iver, Tears for Fears, Steven Wilson, X Ambassadors, Burlap to Cashmere, Simon & Garfunkel, and the Beach Boys, this debut record marinates rock, electronic, and ambient elements with surreal vocal layers to meld into lush cinematic songscapes.

Visit the official YouTube link: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLII-3emhkdj6ZkqdyqzERb7XOjVR9Ufpa

There are two hidden bonus tracks; these tracks are delivered to anyone who buys the full album. Track 11 is a special Tears for Fears cover.

All songs except for the cover song (track 11) are available for easy one-stop licensing for film and TV. Instrumentals are available upon request. Send a link via Bandcamp's contact page if you'd like to get in touch.

Track Name: Beautiful Forever
So we come from the beautiful forever
Where a thousand eyes are watching our dreams
And as long as we can stay together
When it’s harder than it seems
If it’s harder than it seems

Promises waiting, take a number twice
Don’t know if they’re catchable or even if they’re wise
So they went before us caught up in the light
Everything in waiting till it all comes into sight
Track Name: Some Room To Spin
Don't worry you can't stop it
Maybe it comes and it goes
It's when you least expect it
It's when you give up what you know

If only we were foolproof
And there was no chance to fall
It might seem worth it at first
Then come to nothing at all
If there are no guarantees
Maybe there's something to win
If you can lose hold of yourself
You might find some room to spin

It's not the time to waver
When you are handing out the rose
You can't ignore the flavor
Of bitterness that's been exposed

If only we were foolproof
And there was no chance to fall
It might seem worth it at first
Then come to nothing at all
If there are no guarantees
Maybe there's something to win
If you can lose hold of yourself
You might find some room to spin
Track Name: Till We Find Ourselves
Keep your head down, tall man
While you're making your booze
If your eyes are open
Then there's no excuse

We are more than dirt and earthen matter
Made of stars and golden wrappers
Crossing oceans till we find ourselves

Keep an open thinking
While you're in your books
Keep your honest taking
Even if no one looks

We are more than dirt and earthen matter
Made of stars and golden wrappers
Crossing oceans till we find ourselves
Track Name: Phonograph (feat. Mic King)
I take a trip on a phonograph
To a time that will never come back
Looking in to the far away
Through the haze of time
Through the disarray

I put the needle on the record and zone
Out in a split second I’m gone
Reflection of sections played in my life
From a past that’s long and gone
Memories dance to the move
Of the grooves laid onto wax
Turn the volume up to ten And let the music take you back
 
To a time when life was good
To a time when life was hard
To a time when music simply helped you hold and carry on
To a place we’ll never be
And yet a place we never left
And there’s no need for life after death
Cause the music never dies

It stays alive in you and I
With heart and soul that can’t deny
A force arrived when lyrics ride
A rhythm sent from heaven’s sky

LA-to-NY still farther East
The only language we need for speech
Is a harmony, melody, chorus, and cadence
There’s no one we cannot reach so
 
Spin that record round and round
And then bring it back come round and round
Ridin' up high on top of the beat
Ain’t nothing in this world that can take us down
Bleed heart into this music, and it’s music till the dirt
Mic to ash, track to dust, heart on wax, wax to earth

I take a trip on a phonograph
To a time that will never come back
Looking in to the far away
Through the haze of time
Through the disarray
Another chance at who I might have been
I’m backstage and I take it all in
Looking out through the stage door
Did I miss again, did I miss once more?
 
Music is more than just rockin' and rollin'
Music is filled to the brim with the soul and heart
It’s deeper than skin, it’s deeper than flesh
It’s more than units you sold
It's history told, futures we hold
A way that none of us ever grow old
A way to let go our pain
Or remember the things forever we want to hold
 
It's a force you cannot measure
A power you cannot gauge
By rounds of applause
Or followers, fans, or plays
Or places on charts
Though my days may
Be only vapor that passes
Sand falling in hour glasses
Long as the record keeps spinning
Then I’ll be in heaven
With life playing out on repeat everlasting
Track Name: Better Things
There are better things, so much better things
Than anything we left behind

Everything that meant something we cradled to ourselves
Never thinking it would find an end
Sifted through the hands of time
We gave it all, we shared as if this moment
Was never stolen, a moment frozen in time

Everything we said we’d never let go till the end
Turned out all in all to matter not
So without negotiation, now left without any sort of station
Almost damnation, a cloudy moment in time

There are better things, so much better things
Than anything we left behind
Track Name: The Sound of Your Love Breaking
When I get up in the morning
With the haze of nighttime weighting
The coffee maker’s empty
The only sound is your love breaking

As I’m groping for the walls
And feeling for the fire
I’d love to say I’d put you in the
Past but there’s no desire

I’m starting from the end
And staring at this cancer
When did it turn, when did it stop
I’m searching for the answer

And nothing comes with ease
I’m stumbling as I’m fading
I’m listening but I only hear
The sound of your love breaking
Track Name: Wanna
I wanna feel
I wanna feel you

Under the midnight moon
Don't look away too soon

I wanna see
I wanna see you

If there's a moment's wait
Try not to hesitate

I wanna feel you, feel you, feel you
I wanna see you, see you, see you
I wanna touch you, touch you, touch you

Under the midnight moon
Don't look away too soon

I wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna
You
Track Name: One More Lonely
There are those who think that sadness comes in seasons
But they've never lost a piece of their heart
Not knowing the rhythm or the reasons
Always on the verge to fall apart

In a room without a view
Feeling pain that's never through

Ooo
Could there be one more lonely than me
Ooo
Trapped in this awful clarity

There are those who've lost the brightness of tomorrow
And they're lost inside a world of their own
Turning inward to a room that's filled with sorrow
Saying no one knows the hurt they've ever known

Ooo
Could there be one more lonely than me
Ooo
Trapped in this awful clarity
Track Name: Dreamward Bound
Roll the dice
Take a bet
It's a choice you won't regret
You're dreamward bound
Dreamward bound

It can kill
The mundane
Free you from the constant strain
If you're dreamward bound
Dreamward bound

Don't be thinking everything be roses
Don't be turning back when it is night
Even when the door before you closes
There's something to be said for
Sticking out your head with all your might

It's the simplest of things
Grab the bat and take a swing
You're dreamward bound

When giving up ain't a choice
Only you can raise your voice
When you're dreamward bound
Dreamward bound
