about

Acorntribe recorded there first 8 song album at hyde street studios in san Francisco in july of 2010. the band has evolved into an arraignment of acoustic guitars, 3 piece vocal harmonies, piano, a kick drum and a tambourine and have been taking there sound as far as chicago all the way to the west coast. “Before You Go” is made up of strong and thoroughly thought out lyrics and melodies but its also a story targeted at the rawness and simplicity of life and the people who have such a mindset will truly understand and get most out of this album. “theres no one meaning to a song, the meaning is yours to create from your own experiences” so listen, create, and enjoy.

Track Name: Before You Go
V1.
don't hold the fruits that you have found
sow your seeds into the ground
the grass that dies will soon rebirth
to spread its light across this earth

V2.
your trapped within your own ways
forced to live, forced to decay
not knowing what your living for
what is it you are living for

CH.
i wish we'd left before we'd know
theres death above and death bellow
we try our best to live our lives
to believe in what we think is right
if your moving on tomorrow
plant your seeds before you go
the grass that dies will soon rebirth
to spread its life across this earth

instrumental..

CH2.
i still see that light within your face
its all wrapped inside your own ways
but i'm dreaming of a better place
were i don't have to live that way
plant your seeds into the ground
and reap the fruits which you have found
a sun that dies will soon rebirth
to spread its life across this earth
a sun will rise to return
to spread its light across this earth
Track Name: A Simple Man
V1
could be living for tomorrow, could be living for today
could hidden in my sorrow, could be drowning in my pain
but i don't want to wast away this way
so i cant live it for tomorrow, i'm gunna live it for today
V2
could be living in the forest, could be living out my dream
sleeping in the meadows crossing the valleys and the streams
but i wont wait for it to all be gone
if i'm just waiting on tomorrow i'm not living it at all
V3
a simple man once told me don't be forgetting who you are
its not the lose along the way its what were keeping in our hearts
so stick to your guns before you get shot
if i'm forgetting who i am i might as well have been forgot
CH
your times to short to waist it, the sun is slowly dying
and though i may never find it, lord knows ill aways be trying
so ill say goodbye to yesterday, if i am leaving in the morning
ill be gone before iv'e stayed, so i cant live it for tomorrow i'm going to live it for today.
V4
could be living for tomorrow, could be living for today
could hidden in my sorrow, could be drowning in my pain
but i don't want to wast away this way
so i cant live it for tomorrow, i'm gunna live it for today
Track Name: Lonely Is The Night
V1
lonely is the night that i walk upon
the moon is there to comfort me when the sun is gone
lonely is the night that i walk upon
only for my boot-heels there to guide me on
V2
broken is the bridge that i walk across
the waters there beneath me calling me to jump
broken is the bridge that i walk across
god is on the other side calling me home
V3
weary is the man that i travel by
he said "i'm lonely but i'm satisfied just living my life"
weary is the man that i travel by
i don't know where its taking me but i soon will find,
out…..
V4
dark are the trees that i walk on through
im lonely and it frightens me but there leading me to you
dark are the trees that i walk on through
V5
peaceful are the hills that i walk along
the bells are there above me there ringing me a song
peaceful are the hills that i walk along
V6
lonely is the night that i walk upon
the moon is there above me guiding me on
lonely is the night that i walk upon..
god is on the other side waiting for me to come
home…..
Track Name: The Rest
V1
i don't need to know how the bluebird fly's
just to know it looks beautiful when soaring through the sky
i don't need to know about the cancer in my bones
just to feel the emptiness when im alone

whoa…….

V2
i don't need to know how the tree will fall
just to see the life within it in the leaves that linger on
i don't need to know all about my death
i'm gunna feel it in the moment and not think about the rest

whoa……..

pre
i have my life to figure this out
i don't need to know the answer right now
i'm going to feel it in the moment and not think about the rest
about the rest…
CH
oh its vast and wide, vast and wide
with you by my side, by my side
oh they open plains they open sky
it could change your heart it could change your mind
if you took the time, take your time

its just you and me and the open road
we got no time to keep, no where to go
it don't matter where i am if im with you ill call it home
we could forget about the rest of them
we could forget about the rest of them
we could forget about the rest of them
we could forget about the rest when were alone
Track Name: Once In The Winter
V1
once in the winter
the spring brought a flower
as i watched that flower wither
the spring it brought another
once in the winter
V2
once in the summer
a drought brought stormy weather
from that drought grew greener pastures
as it grew us all together
once in the summer
V3
the sailors are awakening
as the sea is softly swaying
in the night the storm is raging
but is calm within the morning
V4
would you be with me a lover
we could find it all together
oh to become part of each other
if only i should ask her

CH
i can hear my brother calling
he said you better start running
for that winter seasons coming
and it means to be collecting

now i hear the spring a calling
she said you better start running
for that winter seasons coming
and it means to be collecting

yea that winter seasons coming
so im gunna start running
yes ill be leaving in the morning
for that winter comes to take me in
Track Name: Let It Be
V1
let it be let it be
i can see i can see
set me free set me free
let it be let it be

V2
set it free set it free
first its here then its gone
it will leave let it leave
but you keep holding on
but you've held on to long
now its time to set it free
V3
boy your dying to young
to be living this way
for your life's just begun
don't you throw it away
is what they said to me
don't you try to succeed
well wont you let me be
V4
oh run johnny run
go be free johnny free
you have worried to long
about the meaning of things
that don't mean a thing
we'll forget them when were gone

hmmm….

Ch
what comes of a life
with a sickness inside
that runs through your bones

they found you that night
with a knife in your side
they found you alone

but you lived a good life
you just put out your lights
a little soon

when you rose to the sky
i lingered behind
but ill be joining you soon

V5
let it be, let it be
set me free, set me free
i can see, i can see
let it be, let it be
let it be for you what its been for me
and we'll all just be set free
Track Name: River To The Sea
V1
to many rivers to be crossing
to wide a water to be crossed
its swept away what iv'e been loosing
and buried deep what i have lost

V2
the flow in you is always raging
and now it flows deep within me
you can never tell where the rivers taking
but the river flows into a sea

V3
its fare and wide said the water gypsy
its wider now than before
we leave the past to hold our disbelief's
and let the future take its corse

V4
the river flows always against me
so i better swim or ill be lost
until i die said the fish who swims up stream
for the end is greater than the cost
yeah the end will benefit my lose

whoaa…..
Track Name: Blue Skys(Carry Us Away)
V1
blue sky's are there above me
and if i could reach id touch the sun
a million miles from my hand
shines a light thats just begun
but it don't matter what you have done
the sun still shines on everyone
all the same

V2
if your mind has become diseased
or your living not to believe
in anyone or anything, but yourself
than your mind wont fix your thoughts
cause you've accepted to be wrong
we are but fishes in a pond
and you are swimming towards that hook
you should have thought before you took
we should follow what we trust
and let that current carry us away from here

whoaaa………

V3
theres no telephone wires
here on our side of the road
just the grass beneath the snow
as we are frozen down bellow
we are buried deep beneath the winter
of my careless hopes
but the spring will melt the snow
and we will rise up from bellow
cause we are all just learning how
to go………..

whoaa………..
