Released TBD (Fall 2018)

Adam and Eve

When you wanna get your spirit right
give me the keys
we’re all just a grain of sand
caught in the sea
Love who you wanna love
there’s no difference you see
Let the rhythm draw you closer now Adam and Eve

forget your conscious, come on let’s be honest
with what your feeling lighting in a bottle (thunder lighting)
we’re on the edge now stay with me and promise.
I see the truth and it’s hanging by a thread

In the moonlight
naked on the beach
we gonna feel like
nothings out of reach

we gonna hold each other
as the tide rolls under if our minds start to wander
bring it back to the center
this was how it began before the shadow of Man
now in the arms of our mother
in the distance thunder

Let it go now, give it up, caught up in the energy
flow now, live it up, let your body be what it wanna be
see through my third eye, arrow to sky,
only one life better let your love shine
let your love shine, give what you can
be a better person or friend, if you want better neighbors, be better neighbors
do it for the love, man not for the favors
all of the flavors, colors and creeds, take to the streets, powerful peace,
that’s what we need, solidarity, Resist temptation, abandon the greed,
I’m planting the seeds, what we believe
changing the system , no more division , trust and envision first peoples wisdom
about damn time that we all start listening,

Hindi, Buddhist, Non-believers, Muslim, Christian, Spiritual Gangsta;
African, Indian, Asian, American, Mother, Father, Sister, Brethren

All of my people going all different ways
I’m providing the rhythm to be on the page
when you out in the world, mind what you say
the future relies on your actions today.

The Angel’s Share

I’m intoxicated with the air
that lingers, after you’ve been there
as it rises like a prayer and becomes the angles share

No I would not even try
to hold something that was meant to fly
spread your sweet joy everywhere
I just want the angels share

now its coming back to me, love was always mean to set you free

I’m in revelry, in space
in every cloud, I can see your face
as I take in rarified air
as I have the angels share
I just want the angels share
can I have the angels share

(Original Song: Tim Krekel. Performance by © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

Centerpiece Of It All

Wisdom comes to those in time
Selfless, A Quality so divine
well you hold both of those so effortlessly, it’s rare to find

Mother look at the life you’ve sown
Troubles come but you took them on and shouldered the load
your legacy is written in stone
you turned a house into a home

So thank you for the journey
you know I see it all unfolding
like a photograph of moments
you told me seize the day and own it
time it flows like water
and now I see you in your daughters
there to catch us when we fall
your like the center piece of it all

Raise my glass to the woman who gave me life
I’ve tried to live it with grace and with pride
holding my head up high
Cause you never compromised

Sister look at the life you’ve sewn
Running in circles chasing children of your own
stories will be told
your building your house into a home

So thank you for the journey
you know I see it all unfolding
like a photograph of moments
you told me seize the day and own it
time it flows like water
and now I see you in your daughters
there to catch us when we fall
your like the center piece of it all

Bridge: Just as the sun light fades there’s a new moon coming
we bend and we break we fight and we fade
nobody said it was easy living
but you’ve got the remedy momma it’s the same old story
follow your feet, in time you will see
that all will be well.

The Darkness

Oh for you who have trembled
oh for you who have cried
for those with the empty lives
for you with the empty lives

Have no fear of tomorrow
have no fear of a change
all things must rearrange
all things must rearrange

And when the darkness is taking you over
you got to grab the wheel and drive
turn your head head over your shoulder
and say goodbye to your old life

drive through the night into the morning
and raise your arms to the rising sun
for every moment theres an ending
and every ending is a moment begun

oh how deep does your heart go
oh how dark are your words
would you find out if you could x2

in every heart theres a yearning
and I do believe it is so
and you’ve felt it to I know x2

Chorus:

oh yah, oh yah

in every heart theres a yearning
and I do believe it is so
and you’ve felt it to I know x2

Chorus:

Dreamer

Dreamer, on the wings of a prayer
well she wanted me home
but I was already there
if you carry me, inside of your heart
well I’m never away, and we’re never apart

Wisdom seeking, from up above
a time will come to leave your space
and blossom.

Dreamer have I waited too long
if the light fades away, will the moment be gone
well I’ll carry you cause you light up the dark
well your body my candle, love is the spark

Wisdom seeking, from up above
a time will come to shed your pain
and blossom.
gonna watch you blossom

Wisdom seeking,
a time will come
to leave your space, to shed your pain
and blossom.

Dreamer, on the wings of a prayer
well she wanted me home
but I was already there
if you carry me, inside of your heart
well I’m never away, and we’re never apart

Dreamer have I waited too long
if the light fades away, will the moment be gone
well I’ll carry you cause you light up the moon
when the world shuts its eyes I’ll be dreaming with you.

Family Tree

I was offered a glimpse of myself
to afraid who I’d see
then I looked at the moon’s in her eyes
and I was ready to be

all that you need
just let me hold ya
hands and your feet
climbing the branches of my family tree

I was offered a glimpse of myself
I could no longer see
Still I’m grateful for you showed me someone
I was ready to be

all that you need
just let me hold ya
hands and your feet
dance in the colors of our tapestry

all that you need
just let me hold ya
hands and your feet
climbing the branches of my family tree

Free

Heaven Knows how I’ve tried
to break through to the other side
take a breath, fill my soul
test myself, or I’ll never know

break it down down, Simplify
Kick your legs, stay alive
here we go, raise it up
lose control or it’s not enough
set your gaze, all at sea
kiss the sky, cause you know your free

Free
it sounds like

Out on the ocean I will release my presence of ego
the wind drives us on so effortlessly
with every horizon I welcome the new day
rise to behold it
for every moment we’re closer to be

Free
It sounds like

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

Hoka Hey

Hoka Hey
Carry on with your wayward spirit
Set your Gaze
Follow the sun
All we are is in our Minds written down like a thousand stories
What you seek, what you become

Hideaway
ohh in the golden hour
winds they blow westerly from
dance with the ocean’s daughters
Moments I cherish are the one’s I feel more strongly
Then I see, the rhythm come and I wanna run forever

chorus: It comes in focus, when you call my name. And all the miles seem to melt away
would you be my shelter, when shadows fall? And if it crumbles we’ll be standing tall.

Hoka Hey
Carry on with your wayward spirit
Set your Gaze
Follow the sun
All we are is in our Minds written down like a thousand stories
What you seek, what you become

Navigate, through the twists and turns each river
that we face, carries us on
The path you choose is yours alone
gotta live with your decisions
what you fear, makes you grow
root down, rise up, deliver it.

chorus: It comes in focus, when you call my name. And all the miles seem to melt away
would you be my shelter, when shadows fall? And if it crumbles we’ll be standing tall.

Hoka Hey
Carry on with your wayward spirit
Set your Gaze
Follow the sun
Moments I cherish are the one’s I feel more strongly
Then I see, the rhythm come and I wanna run forever

Olivia

All in due time
its always the same
starts as a whisper
then drives you insane

comes on at dawn
burns thru the night
leaving you breathless
and out of your mind

when you know love
then you’ll find peace
walking together Gracefully

Oh mother of mine what will become of us
I want to go back to the shimmering light
Oh sister of mine you’re daughters will rise above the mess
all thanks to you

Olivia, you’re an angel
the world is hopeful you remind me mind me
Olivia, I watch you fly so gracefully on your journey

she studies me softly, what she doesn’t know
my body is weathered from the storms I have rode
one day you will find love and you’ll ask how it feels
if it burns like a fire you’ll know that it’s real.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

Rise

Welcome to the home of the brave
land of the dollar bill
cups overflowing
never seem to get our fill
Earth and Water
they’re falling behind
don’t listen to stories
just open your eyes

Chorus:
now we will not stand
in the shadows now cast by our fathers
now we gonna rise
cause we are strong and the light is upon us

Up in the mountains
let my lungs receive
roots they surround me
ground me to my belief
I feel the connection
but the language we no longer speak
Listen close to the messages
from our ancestry

Earth and Water
they’re falling behind
don’t hide in the shadows
step into the light

Chorus

Now I want to learn from our elders and sit by the fire
admire their years , watch the moon and the stars come up over
now what would you give?
To see respect for all people not borders
Now I want to live
with the truth of our words and our honor
we no longer say
your with us or your one of the others
don’t push me away
let the the love and compassion wash over
no we will not stand
in the shadows now cast by our leaders
now we gonna rise cause we are strong and the light is upon us.

Water Is Life

Te Aroha Maori waiata (song)
Love, Faith and Peace for all

Feel the rhythm, hear the call
together we rise, together we fall
open your eyes understand this fight
mother is home, water is life
wake the mountain, summon the sea
we are the lions, the roots of the trees
Feel the rhythm, hear the call
together we rise, or forever we fall

Out in the Jungle
honest and humble
so leave your ego as we go to face the rising tide.
Hate is your weakness here
exposes what you fear
and all that’s left will be the echoes of father time
Momma she gave you life when
you first opened your eyes
could you not say your actions were honest, righteous and justified?
On through the fire and smoke
your stories what you wrote
generations coming bare the burdens of what you sow.
So bold man go make your claim, bury what’s in your way
I’m standing with the warriors on the right side of history.

Feel the rhythm, hear the call
together we rise, together we fall
open your eyes understand this fight
mother is home, water is life
wake the mountain, summon the sea
we are the lions, the roots of the trees
Feel the rhythm, hear the call
together we rise, or forever we fall

There’s something happening here
What it is has been happening for years and years
There’s these men with guns over there
pushing back brothers and sisters and children
just because they stand with a peaceful prayer,
Oh lord, We do not need this another black serpent beneath our feet
just another tool in the corporate scheme
meant to keep the masses on their knees well
Snake charmers, your karma will come quick people sound the alarm

Stand for the future
stand for the kingdom
one people, one earth, one tribe , one nation

Feel the rhythm, hear the call
together we rise, together we fall
open your eyes understand this fight
mother is home, water is life
wake the mountain, summon the sea
we are the lions, the roots of the trees
Feel the rhythm, hear the call
together we rise, or forever we fall

Te aroha,
Te Whakapono,
Te Rangimarie
Tatou Tatou e

ALBUM: WISHIN’ WELL

All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.
Released February 12, 2013

I wanna be young, I wanna write a song, about the next good thing to come along
I wanna take her by the hand down through the sand, sweet love until the sunrise.
truth be told you never know if you’re all washed up if you never grow, Take a shot, or let em’ fly, being young is just a state of mind. So hurry up and take you’re time. Cause being young is just a state of mind.

Everyday we get closer, so give it what you got. Well you only get one shot.

And I’m not just gonna be pulled along, by a broke down beat I’m gonna get me some. I’m gonna take each moment as it comes. Until I’m six feet underground.

I wanna be young, I wanna play dumb, like when I was home late and said you never called, but the smoke in my hair and my eyes gave it all away. Truth be told you always let me slide, I love you for it cause that’s the reason why I’m the way that I am cause that’s who I’m supposed to be. Being young is the closest thing to free.

Everyday we get closer, so give it what you got. Well you only get one shot.

And I’m not just gonna be pulled along, by a broke down beat I’m gonna get me some. I’m gonna take each moment as it comes. Until I’m six feet underground.

Bridge: I feel your light shining on me, when I close my eyes. And when the world throws it’s worst at me, I’ll improvise. You make your way through my troubled mind, with ease. I’ll be the one to break your fall, just wait and see.

And I’m not just gonna be pulled along, by a broke down beat I’m gonna get me some. I’m gonna take each moment as it comes. Until I’m six feet underground.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

Oh my how about that, the road turned south and we lost the track
thats just a part of the plan, so nod your head if you understand
well have you heard the news? Same old truth but he got a new groove well
you don’t have to complicate it yeah
set it forget it.
you don’t have to orchestrate it
just trying to be free here now.

Cause I ain’t got no story I’ve got nothing to tell
and I’m down to the dregs of my wishin’ well
And I won’t let you down if you just lift me up.
you better pour out your past and refill your cup

Some get high
others stay low
tomorrow’s addiction
thats todays new cure
but I won’t be bought I won’t be sold tomorrow’s looking better than the rear mirror
I’ve gotta let it go gotta let it breath, shed my pain and make my peace
you don’t have to complicate it yeah
set it forget it.
you don’t have to orchestrate it
just trying to be free here now.

Cause I ain’t got no story I’ve got nothing to tell
and I’m down to the dregs of my wishin’ well
And I won’t let you down if you just lift me up.
so we drink to the past and refill our cup

throw me a line I’m sinking down inside my own wishin’ well
and it won’t be long before I drown
so someone won’t you lift me up.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

Is it all in my head? Well I swear I ain’t changed or is that what went wrong?
was it something I said? Or is this what you meant when you said let’s move on.
Well I want you to know… I ain’t going no where.

Take time, get it off your shoulders, rewind we’ll start it up again, Don’t worry about the he said she said shit, that’s only in you head. I guess I never expected you were going to leave me and then the night turned over, So how do we say goodbye? well it don’t come easy.

Can we just make amends? well I’ve made my peace and I ain’t looking back
So tell me where does it end? Your written in my soul, and my flesh. And I ain’t going to quite. Till my dying breath.

Take time, get it off your shoulders, rewind we’ll start it up again, Don’t worry about the he said she said shit, that’s only in you head. I guess I never expected you were going to leave me and then the night turned over, So how do we say goodbye? well it don’t come easy.

Bridge: Well my words can get you gambling, my odds are never good, my love will leave you rambling, well I’d change it if I… if I could.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

We all need just a push or a shove every once in a while, a few small steps and pretty soon you’ll be walking for miles so lean on the trust, the trust that I’m providing and won’t you be calm, just let it happen. Life always seems is gonna set you up for challenge but don’t look away just take it on with balance. So strike you’re pose, and if you start to stumble well love will be the mortar that’s gonna keep you strong and humble.

So take good care, of one another.
Be prepared, to follow through.
Your greatest moment comes when your back’s against the wall,
and when it comes around, you won’t have to choose.
you know what to do
For a moment, just own it
Remember how we used to laugh
Breathe through it, you can do this
Life is just a photograph

Bridge: Everyday that you move, Every way that you start, all the bridges you burn, everything that you are
All the people we meet, you know we traveled so far, and all the lessons you learn, every fall leaves a scar. And those scars are there to remind us, not what went wrong, but what went right, and there to implore us to soldier on, as we shoot for them stars.

We all need just a push or a shove every once in a while, a few small steps and pretty soon you’ll be walking for miles so lean on the trust, the trust that I’m providing and won’t you be calm, just let it happen. Life always seem is gonna set you up for challenge but don’t look away just take it on with balance. So strike you’re pose, and if you start to stumble well love will be the mortar that’s gonna keep you strong and humble.

For a moment, just own it
Remember how we used to laugh
Breathe through it, you can do this
Life is just a photograph

Come on out to play she’s gonna wind you up now.
Angel used to be so straight, but now she’s all turned around.
She said don’t play me for a fool because you think I walk alone
You might strip me of my faith, but you could never steal my soul

round and round she used to go, and if the devils on her side she swear she didn’t know, and if she playing with fire how come she’s so cold, she’s so cold.

Danny’s walking on the edge, you know he’s hanging by a thread
don’t even think about the one’s he love well there trying to ground him
well there down upon there knees but he’s to dizzy to see there all just praying to god that the devil unhands him.
Well then he find himself back where he began, messed up feeling tough wheel in his hand, all his actions explicit, he’s stumbling and tripping, like a walking exhibit of over the limit. Danny you don’t want to add to the mess a wife and two kids you should be so blessed, so close your eyes and let your body rest, but the engine turned before he even second guessed it.

Round and round he used to go, and if the devils on his side well he swears he didn’t know cause if he’s playing with fire how come he’s so cold, he so cold.

Round and round we used to go, and if the devils on our side well we swear we didn’t know cause if we’re playing with fire how come we’re so cold, we’re so cold.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

Listen close girl I’m telling you we’ve only got time. So speak your mind…
Don’t keep it bottled up inside, when it rise, realize, you can’t hide behind those eyes. Telling the truth in, all that you do and, all that you’ve done, now it’s begun
but it’s only a verse, not even a song.

It was only a dream, but I wanted it more. When I realized I lost you I fell apart.
It was only a moment, but I waited too long to tell you I loved you cause now you’ve gone. It was only a verse not even a song.

It’s been a while but I remember you like you never left, so what comes next makes me feel unsure. when we pass on the street you just shuffle your feet you never look at me, that’s not familiar.

Cause I, I’ve made my mistakes, well I’ll keep paying for.
You, leave it all up to fate, nobody’s love run’s straight, but I’m still thankful for it

It was only a dream, but I wanted it more. When I realized I lost you I fell apart.
It was only a moment, but I waited too long to tell you I loved you cause now you’ve gone. It was only a dream, but I wanted it more. If you come back to hurt me, I won’t run. It was only a moment, at first, should have told you I loved you for better or worse. Now it’s a song, no longer a verse.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

We’ll go racing through strawberry fields, in the middle of the pouring rain. You look back but I am right there by your side girl, and it’s always gonna be that way.

I never like to think it through, cause then I’d have to face the truth, I could never get over you, so let’s just live for right now.

She lifts me up. You know exactly how it feels. Like nothing else matters in the world, like the only thing that’s real. every time she wakes me up.

She’s not looking for conversation, she ‘s not trying to make a deal, she just giving me confirmation, your love and company is all I want to feel.

I never like to think it through, cause then I’d have to face the truth, I could never get over you, so let’s just live for right now.

She lifts me up. You know exactly how it feels. Like nothing else matters in the world, like the only thing that’s real. every time she wakes me, oh she lifts me up.

It’s not yet dawn and I’m so tired now, but one look gives it all away. You close your eyes and you’ll be sorry boy. Cause every day you wake up is a good, good day.

I never like to think it through, cause then I’d have to face the truth, I could never get over you, so let’s just live for right now. So quickly years have gone, pretty soon we’ll say so long, my tears turn into songs and every one will sing along.

She lifts me up. You know exactly how it feels. Like nothing else matters in the world, like the only thing that’s real. every time she wakes me, oh she lifts me up.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

Easy come high, easy go low, make a little change. Let it grow.
Easy be young we soon grow old , easy to love, hard to let go
Easy come spring easy go fall, when the cold nights come I don’t mind at all
Easy come night easy go day, easy this life slips away.

I keep dreaming when I’m not sleeping, I’ve got to know are you dreaming to
Lately I’ve been hiding my feelings and I won’t hold back this love for you.

Easy come high, easy go low, make a little change. Let it grow.
Easy be young we soon grow old , easy to love, hard to let go

It’s hard to let go..

Easy come spring easy go fall, when the cold nights come I don’t mind at all
Easy come night easy go day, easy this life slips away.

I keep dreaming when I’m not sleeping, I’ve got to know are you dreaming to
Lately I’ve been hiding my feelings and I won’t hold back this love for you.

Easy come high, easy go low, make a little change. Let it grow.
Easy be young we soon grow old , easy to love, hard to let go
Easy come spring easy go fall, when the cold nights come I don’t mind at all
Easy come night easy go day, easy this life slips away.

Well It slips away.

(All Music & Lyrics © Will Evans. All Rights Reserved.)

The Moment comes and then it’s gone.
I’ve waited here for so damn long
If I could fall asleep
I’d be waiting in my dreams

The storm is raging just outside
darkness hides the full moon sky
we bathe in candle light
and await the rising tide

But I can feel the warmth
from the fire in your eyes
and I can see the flame yah it guides me through the night
and if you stay with me I’m forever satisfied
Emaline. Emaline.

Pull me close so I might steal
The pain and hurt that you conceal
I’ll hold you in my arms
till the pain and hurt is gone.

But I can feel the warmth
from the fire in your eyes
and I can see the flame yah it guides me through the night
and if you stay with me I’m forever satisfied
Emaline. Emaline.

Girl I’m on my knees and the world is flying by
so take my hand, hold on tight
