about

On March 19, 2019, we drove to Center St. Recording Studios in Old Hickory, TN to record live selections of our album There Will Be A Song. Peter Wahlers played stick bass, Cassie Shudak viola, and Jen Rim violin. We all recorded around one ribbon mic.

We didn't have monitors or a click track, so it's raw and full of energy. It's not perfect. We hoped it wouldn't be. We wanted to capture something authentic, something that couldn't be reproduced. This is that performance.

Track Name: Waters Roll (Live)
Waters Roll (Live) - Jenny & Tyler - There Will Be A Song - Copyright 2018 One Eyed Cat Music (BMI)
Music and Lyrics by Jennifer Somers (BMI) and Tyler Somers (BMI) | C#m minor A-432 | 5/8 or 6/8 straight

This isn't an attempt to be political
This isn't an attack to try to make us feel culpable
This is an invitation to watch the waters roll
And write new songs, worthy of a listen

I'm not trying to be the better man
I just want to know the love that's held these hands
And try to feel, and dream, and understand
And watch those waters roll, where they never gone before

Roll! Roll down!
Roar loud! Resound! Resound!
Over the noise of the proud,
Roll down! Roll down!

I have heard stories of miracles
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
I have a dream of a different world
Where the waters ever-roll and the earth thirsts no more

Where every color, tongue, and caste is free
And all man's wickedness is finally ceased
Where every mountainside hears freedom ring
Where the waters ever-roll and the righteous thirst no more

I'm still looking for that beauty
For a love that never doubts
For a dream that never dies
For those waters to roll down
I'm still looking for that beauty
For the strength to raise a fight
For the rain to raise the waters
For those waters to reign high

I'm still looking for that beauty
I'm still looking for that beauty
I'm still looking for that beauty
I'm still looking for that beauty
I'm still looking for that
Looking for that

I tried again to give it all, to give my all
But I got lost in the shine of gold; I tried to hold that glory
I chased the lights, took in praise for pride; I gave my eyes all they wanted

I don’t want to write that kind of song
I don’t want to give them anymore of my heart
I don’t want to waste the greater love
I don’t want to kiss a lesser god

But I lied and ran and did it all, did it all wrong
You showed me life and death, the wine and bread, and you said I love you
Still I lied with them, more of me died again and I tried to spin it, like I didn't know the truth

I don’t want to write that kind of song
I don’t want to give them anymore
I don’t want to waste the greater love
I don’t want to kiss a lesser god

Don’t ever let me go back; don’t ever let me go back; don’t ever let me go back; don’t let me ever go

'Cause it's you I want, you, to take me, truth, use the pure and ruined to unite this divided heart and make it soon, hold me close and form a new heart in me, where you are everything and I can hear you singing, singing to me now

I don’t want to write that kind of song
I don’t want to give them anymore

I don’t want to write that kind of song
I don’t want to give them anymore of my heart
I don’t want to waste the greater love
I don’t want to kiss a lesser god
I don’t want to kiss a lesser god
Track Name: A Boy & A Girl [We're Getting Older] (Live)
A Boy & A Girl [We're Getting Older] (Live) - Jenny & Tyler - There Will Be A Song - Copyright 2017 One Eyed Cat Music (BMI)
Music and Lyrics by Tyler Somers (BMI) and Jennifer Somers (BMI) | C# major | 4/4 straight

Yours is the voice that calls me home
And when you sing I can't help but sing along
You say my name and I feel different
Feels like the girl in me is waking up

Darling, we're getting older
Your hair's getting thinner
And I'm getting wider
We're not the kids we once were
We're a man and a woman
Not a boy and a girl
But I still feel like that girl sometimes

Our girls are grown, don't need us much
All we can give them is more and more love
They say our names and we feel different
Feels like our hearts can't hold enough

My darling, we're getting older
Your hair's getting thinner
And I'm getting wider
We're not the kids we once were
We're a man and a woman
Not a boy and a girl
But I still feel like that girl sometimes

Darling, we're getting older
You're moving slower
And I'm feeling tired
We're not the kids we once were
We're a man and a woman
Not a boy and a girl
But I still feel like that girl sometimes
And you still seem like that boy almost all the time
Track Name: Who I'm Not (Live)
Who I'm Not (Live) - Jenny & Tyler - There Will Be A Song - Music and Lyrics by Jennifer Somers (BMI) and Tyler Somers (BMI)

I'm tired of being who I'm not
Feels like I've given it a shot
It leaves me empty and afraid
When I step onto a stage
Being who I'm not

I pack my suitcase till it bursts
Overflowing with my skirts
The soles are coming off my shoes
So many miles left to get through
Being who I'm not

These lies, they pull me till I break
And numb me to the pain
Like I'm sleeping
Like my life is caught up in the wind
Confused and questioning
Who I really am, again

I hardly ever understand
How I fit and who I am
These days are long but years are short
What did my life look like before
When I wasn't who I'm not

You call me in
You know my name
Assure me that
It doesn't have to be this way
That I'm enough
Don't have to run
I'm okay; I'm okay

You call my name
Say I can change
Secure me now
I don't have to live afraid
You lead me to
A quiet stream
There I rest; there I rest
Track Name: The Sun Will Rise (Live)
The Sun Will Rise (Live) - Jenny & Tyler - There Will Be A Song - Music and Lyrics by Jennifer Somers (BMI) and Tyler Somers (BMI) © 2017 One Eyed Cat Music (BMI) | E major | 4/4 straight

The grass is withering, giving way to dust
I'm wading in knee deep, already feeling lost
It's like somebody stole the peace from my poor heart
And I'm treading barren land, the sky is growing dark

Lost in the shadows
Can't find the road home

But the sun will rise and it will shine
My comforter is here, his voice upon my ear
And rain will fall and I'll feel small
But he'll stretch out his hand and I'll begin again

I can't seem to write; it's like I'm looking at my life
A story's being told and I'm just passing by
It's been too long living in the in between
My trust a faded line, pulled out from under me

But the sun will rise and it will shine
My comforter is here, his voice upon my ear
And rain will fall and I'll feel small
But he'll stretch out his hand and I'll begin again
Track Name: O Freedom [There Will Be A Song] (Live)
O Freedom [There Will Be A Song] (Live) - Jenny & Tyler - There Will Be A Song - Copyright 2018 One Eyed Cat Music (BMI)
Music and Lyrics by Tyler Somers (BMI) and Jennifer Somers (BMI) | A minor A440 | 4/4 straight

Heading west past the cotton fields
Highway 6 in the rain
Even the trees' backs are bent and pleading
For relief from the pain

The air is thick like a river wide
Like it's been for so, so long
Ghosts, they're walking those yards of white
And they're still singing the same song

A song of freedom, o freedom, till it comes and good has won every fight
A song of freedom, o freedom, let it come, let it run free and wild

As the swallows find a new place to rest
In the branches of trees unharmed
We await the day where the trailers are traded
For mansion rooms, each one a work of art

There the pain will be no more
Truer bodies will they own
All their scars seen by the scars of their Lord
And they'll be singing that song of old

A song of freedom, o freedom, till it comes and good has won every fight
A song of freedom, o freedom, let it come, let it run free and wild

Those who hunger now for justice, they will be full
There'll be comfort for the mourning, and sight for the pure
O and the earth for the meek, and heaven for the poor
Love will endure; love will endure

Those who hunger now for justice, they will be full
There'll be comfort for the mourning, and sight for the pure
O and the earth for the meek, and heaven for the poor
Love will endure; love will endure
And there will be a song

A song of freedom, o freedom, till it comes and good has won every fight
A song of freedom, o freedom, let it come, let it run free and wild
Track Name: Come Be Free (Live)
Come Be Free (Live) - Jenny & Tyler - There Will Be A Song - Copyright 2018 One Eyed Cat Music (BMI)
Music and Lyrics by Jennifer Somers (BMI) and Tyler Somers (BMI) | F major | 8/8 straight

Come now free one
Come and rest
Lay your body down
Leave your mess

You don't have to
Run away
Come into my arms
Stay

Be free from wandering, free to have a home
Free from wondering if you'll always be alone
Free from all those feelings you keep trying to ignore
Come be free, free

My dear free one
Don't you know?
I've always loved you
Won't let you go

Don't you worry
Don't you hide
I'll take your burdens
And make them mine

Be free from wandering, free to have a home
Free from wondering if you'll always be alone
Free from all those feelings you keep trying to ignore
Come be free, free

Free from anxiety, free to be at peace
Free from the fear that you'll never find relief
Free from all the questions that still need answering
Come be free, free
Come be free, free
