If this world never dies / and we’ll all be blessed or cursed If there’s any place worth saving / oh God / save new york first / God save new york first / God oh God / save new york CREDITS: Song by Joel Ansett and Margaret Dowers Joel Ansett: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Backing Vocals Chase Weber: Synths, Electric Guitar, Programming Joel Beussink: Bass Guitar Ryan Doyle: Drums Brandon Weaver: Programming Produced by Brandon Weaver Co-Produced by Chase Weber Recorded at Iron Wing Studios (Newport, KY) and The Bongo Tree (Cincinnati, OH) Mixed by Brandon Weaver Mastered by Alex Lowe at Red Tuxedo (Atlanta, GA) Album Art & Photography by Zack Wilson

The Cycle
Joel Ansett

Learn more: http://joelansett.com/ I wish I would have learned / once you cross the line / it starts to blur And even though I know it’s wrong / still I’m falling for the lie / I’ve been here before So what’s the harm / of one last time It goes around and around again / I need an honest friend To call me out / to call me out / and bring the cycle to an end Bring the cycle to an end I wish would have known / once you blur the line / there’s no telling where you’ll go no Even though I know it’s wrong / I need this now to get me by / it’s my comfort It’s my right / so what’s the harm / of one more time It goes around and around again / I need an honest friend To call me out / to call me out / and bring the cycle to an end Bring the cycle to an end Lead me home (background vocals) Down on my knees / it’s plain to see I’m not the best at knowing what is best for me / Stuck in a cycle of sin and regret / Circles of wanting but going to the wrong place to get / But we were never meant to break it on our own / Trying to make it all alone / Has left me faking like I know that way to shake this / so I’m asking for help Cause every time I try to save myself It goes around and around again / I need an honest friend To call me out / to call me out / and bring the cycle to an end Bring the cycle to an end / bring the cycle to an end / bring the cycle to an end CREDITS: Joel Ansett: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Chase Weber: Synths, Programming Joel Beussink: Bass Guitar Ryan Doyle: Drums Bridge Backing Vocals composed by Dan DeCristofaro & Jasmine Tate Produced by Brandon Weaver Co-Produced by Chase Weber Recorded at Iron Wing Studios (Newport, KY) and The Bongo Tree (Cincinnati, OH) Mixed by Brandon Weaver Mastered by Alex Lowe at Red Tuxedo (Atlanta, GA) Album Art & Photography by Zack Wilson

Turn to Gold
Joel Ansett

Song from Joel's debut full length album 'The Nature of Us.' LYRICS: The aspen trees • their golden leaves • all have a song to sing • and I can’t see • any reason for them to lie • about what the end will bring • CHORUS: what they believe I’d like to know • I want to live their story • my heart can hear their humble glow • telling me not to be afraid of letting go • and every leaf that falls will make them grow • when they turn to gold • when they turn to gold • their autumn leaves • are telling me • that glory is not their own • and if you lay it down • one day it’s coming back around • after the winter snow • CHORUS • come and see the nature of true royalty • the nature of true royalty • it’s not having a golden crown • it’s learning to lay it down • learning not to be afraid of letting go • and everything we give will only grow • when we turn to gold • when we turn to gold CREDITS: Written by Joel Ansett Produced by Brandon Weaver Co-Produced by Chase Weber Recorded at Iron Wing Studios (Newport, KY) and The Bongo Tree (Cincinnati, OH) Mixed by Brandon Weaver Mastered by Alex Lowe at Red Tuxedo (Atlanta, GA) Album Art & Photography by Zack Wilson Joel Ansett: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Backing Vocals Chase Weber: Electric Guitar, Synths, Percussion Joel Beussink: Bass Guitar Brandon Weaver: Upright Bass Ryan Doyle: Drums

Tragedy Is Not The End
Joel Ansett

Song from Joel's debut full-length album THE NATURE OF US. Hear more: http://joelansett.com/music/the-nature-of-us/ LYRICS: Disbelief, when I first heard the news / it left me angry and confused knocked the wind out of my soul / when we lost what made us whole now there’s a heat behind my eyes / and I can’t stop asking why why why They say it’s gonna be okay / but it doesn’t take away / it doesn’t take away the pain / but we don’t have to be afraid / ‘cause I don’t think it’s an accident that tears are shaped like seeds / so I’ll bury all my fears and trust they’re turning into trees / oh I’m fighting to believe This is not the end of the story Grief / you’re a loyal friend / just when I thought I’d never see you again / you caught me by surprise and took me back to simple times / when we all had a place / now in every precious moment / I can feel the empty spaces They say it’s gonna be okay / tut it doesn’t take away / no it doesn’t take away the pain But we don’t have to fear the rain anymore / ‘cause I don’t think it’s an accident that tears are shaped like seeds / so I’ll bury all my fears and trust they’re turning into trees / oh I’m fighting to believe / this is not the end of the story / this is not the end of the story Our lives are a poem / our sorrow half the lines And there will come a day when the good Lord makes it rhyme No I don’t think it’s an accident that tears are shaped like seeds / so I’ll bury all my fears And trust they’re turning into trees / I’ll keep fighting to believe / this is not the end of the story This tragedy is not the end of the story

Joel Ansett

LYRICS: I’m already in love with you • already made you mine • never gonna leave your side • I’m already in love with you • nothing to do but to receive it • sit back and believe it • I’m already in love • not with who you try to be • I’m talking bout the you that comes out naturally • like the crease in your cheeks when you’re smiling at me • like your desperate need for a morning cup of coffee • I’m in love with the way • that you can’t stay up too late • and if you do you start to laugh a little crazy • I cannot deny you’ve taken over my heart • you don’t even have to try • I’m in love with who you are • CHORUS • even if you change I’ll still be loving on you • I’m in love with who you will be too • even if there’s a past that you’re too afraid to show • or a little something secret you don’t want me to know • take your fears, take your shame, and all your scars • watch them fade away inside the comfort of your home in my heart • so no matter what you’ve done • and no matter what you do • feel the healing of a love that’s never leaving you • CHORUS • yes I’m already in love with you • and every single little thing that you do • there’s nothing left to prove • nothing left to do but being you • because I’m already in love with you • CHORUS CREDITS: Written by Joel Ansett Produced by Brandon Weaver & Chase Weber Mixed by Brandon Weaver Mastered by Alex Lowe at Red Tuxedo Artwork by Zack Wilson Joel Ansett: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Backing Vocals Chase Weber: Electric Guitar, Synths, Percussion, Programming Joel Beussink: Bass Guitar Ryan Doyle: Drums Brandon Weaver: Programming, Percussion
