about

This album is the culmination of four years of writing, traveling, playing, drinking and recording in between.

We recorded at four different studios to create this album. With our friend Eugune in his private studio, The Dojo in Chino Hills, CA, Sony Records in Santa Monica, CA and NRG in Hollywood with our dear friend Jeremy Parker.

The music really tells the story of all those travels, different situations, our lives, growing, changing, children and all the different situations we were put through as individuals and a band. The resulting album is a culmination of these experiences as told through Randy's wonderful storytelling ways.

We hope you enjoy listening to this record as much as we enjoyed making it.

Cheers,
The Asphalt

Track Name: Where The Past Begins
Nothing to miss at a time like now in a place like this
So come on, let's go
Are you in or out, won't you just say so
'Cause it's time for moving on
When part of you is already gone

And I still remember every word you said
Every word you said

It's you and me and here we go
The world will never find us
This beginning has no end
This is where the past begins
You and me and here we go
With nothing to remind us
This beginning has no end
This is where the past begins

It's so good to know
You can feel so strange in a place called home
It reminds me of ways I disappointed you my love
and with all this time to kill
If i can make this right I will

I'm not trying to be perfect
Just a little bit, just a little bit closer
And a little farther from simple complications
Track Name: Time & place
This town is way too cold
And the nights, the nights are far too long
To dream of indifference
And you can’t sleep at all
I know you’ve got your reasons
I know you’ve got your pride
And at times when your acting tough
Well it might just be enough
To find your way

So tell me how it’s the time or the place
Cause I already knew by the look on your face
You did it, you did it, you did it oh!
It’s the time or the place
Cause I already knew, by the look on your face.

I’m staying in tonight
With the pictures on my wall
As you reach your idols

And from the inside out
My eyes are open wide
You’d think you know I tried
With some fate and a little luck
Fight the pain though it’s obvious
It’s not ok, it’s not ok

So tell me how it’s the time or the place
Cause I already knew by the look on your face
You did it, you did it, you did it oh!
It’s the time or the place
Cause I already knew, by the look on your face.
Track Name: Tonight
Tonight
He’s a complicated boy
Bleeding for the new day to come
Counting rain on the windshield
Driving until the gas is gone
You can’t understand
The beauty in a car crash
You can’t stop or look away
You can’t look away
And we’re all just learning to forget
Waiting for our very own
52nd Street Serenade

Cause it feels like tonight
Could be the best night of our lives
Yeah it feels like tonight
When a year of wrong could turn to right

She’s a complicated girl
Trying not to let the cracks show
I heard her saying to herself
This could be as lonely as an empty heart has felt
You can’t understand
The beauty in a car crash
You can’t stop or look away
You can’t look away
And we’re all just learning to forget
Waiting for our very own
52nd Street Serenade

Cause it feels like tonight
Could be the best night of our lives
Yeah it feels like tonight
When a year of wrong could turn to right

Realizing for the first time
You don’t have to apologize
When you’re right
When any day’s a good day to die

Cause it feels like tonight
Could be the best night of our lives
Yeah it feels like tonight
When a year of wrong could turn to right
Track Name: From Afar
Do you feel alright
It’s what you’re asking me as you twist the knife
Another witness to your emotional suicide
How do you sleep at night with all the damage done
Oblivious to suspicious looks from everyone
(And it feels just like)
Our conscious clear our secrets safe our battles won
(And if feels just like)
There’s nothing left to do but run

After all this time
I watched you from afar as you went down
So where you gonna run to
After all this time
I watched you from afar as you went down
So where you gonna run to

Do you wonder why
Our greatest gifts become our burdens racing time
Track lines leading to the place where you reside
The boy that once was here has hidden deep inside
I do remember with all the pain you provide
(And it feels just like)
Treading water living life on borrowed time
(And it feels just like)
The end is not far from sight
