about

Something Like Fiction: an aptly titled collection of music that never really became a finished product. These 22 songs show the progression of Wavorly, a band that grew along with the music they created; not only in ways of musical expression, but both personally and spiritually as well. Ranging from "If Only You Were Mine," one of the last songs written before their breakup in late 2012, to "Well, You've Got My Attention," one of the first songs written by a small Mississippi band known as Freshmen15 (that would later blossom into the internationally recognized Wavorly) in 2005, this album represents the full spectrum of a career that spanned the better part of the early 2000s. None of these songs were ever formally recorded, mixed, or mastered, but only exist as b-sides and demos. This is a "behind the scenes" glimpse into the life and times of 8 brothers that wanted to reach the world with a message of hope in love through music. These are the songs that came out of trials, tribulations, victories and celebrations. This is the lost chapter of the story of Wavorly, and it is truly something like fiction.

Track Name: If Only You Were Mine
Hey, it started in the back of my head,
became a secret that just had to be said.
I feel it moving closer now, screaming in my lungs,
dying to be sung.
Girl, they tell me that you're out of my reach,
but you're swaying to a lonely beat.
And I feel ya moving closer now,
if my words could catch your ear somehow;
I'm singing...

I don't wanna waste forever
on half-hearted goodbyes, the rumours or the lies.
I don't wanna wait forever,
for the moment to be right, no,
it's gotta be tonight!

We could have it all, let go and take the fall.
Oh, if i could say that you were mine!
We could drive all night, take a chance and hold on tight.
We'd have forever in the palm of our hands,
Baby, if only you were mine.

Say any little thing that you can,
let me know that I can breathe again.
You're moving closer now,
I'm begging you to listen, just to notice me at all.
I'm singing...

I don't wanna waste forever
on half-hearted goodbyes, the rumours or the lies.
I don't wanna wait forever
for the moment to be right,
it's gotta be tonight!

We could have it all, let go and take the fall.
Oh, if i could say that you were mine!
We could drive all night, take a chance and hold on tight.
We'd have forever in the palm of our hands,
Baby, if only you were mine.

Take my hand, let's run away,
To hell with all the things they say!
So let it out, scream it out!
Tell me you can hear me now.

I don't wanna waster forever.
No, I don't wanna wait forever.
I'll never stop believing,
You know I'll never stop!

We could have it all, let go and take the fall.
Oh, if i could say that you were mine!
We could drive all night, take a chance and hold on tight.
We'd have forever in the palm of our hands,

Baby, if only you were mine.
Track Name: Chasing After Love
I've waited so long just to find myself here.
It's like a sad song that's gone on for years.
And the walls I've built up are tearing me down,
and all the roads I take got me turning around.

It's like I'm screaming inside, but I don't hear a sound.

So tonight, I'm feeling so much stronger.
Tonight, I'm gonna let it all go a little longer.
I know you know, it's like it's never enough,
So tonight, I'm chasing after love.
I'm chasing after love.

I've needed someone who could show me the way,
when all the daylight starts to fade into gray.
And I see that light, and I'm chasing it down.
And I won't waste time; ain't no stopping me now!

I've got a feeling inside I can't believe I've found.

So tonight, I'm feeling so much stronger.
Tonight, I'm gonna let it all go a little longer.
I know you know, it's like it's never enough,
So tonight, I'm chasing after love.
I'm chasing after love.

Thought that I could live alone, thought I'd be alright.
But that's not the life that's waiting for me.
I think that somebody out there loves me,
And I think I wanna know.

And so tonight, I'm feeling so much stronger,
tonight, I'm gonna let it all go...
I'm chasing after love!
I've got a feeling inside that I know I've found
I know I've found You now.

So tonight, I'm feeling so much stronger.
Tonight, I'm gonna let it all go a little longer.
I know you know, it's like it's never enough,
So tonight, I'm chasing after love.
I'm chasing after love.

I'm chasing after love.


Outro:
I heard Your voice, I made a choice--
to never go back.
The words You said ring in my head.
I'm never looking back, no.
Track Name: Still Standing
You're such a pretty mess, girl
When you let your guard down.
There's no one to impress, love,
let the nightmare fade out.

'Cause i'm not gonna leave you now,
as if i ever could somehow.
We're staring in the face of doubt, but
together we can hold our ground.
We gotta hold our ground.
Hold on to me now.

We're just boy meets girl
painting sunsets on top of the world.
The sky could fall, in spite of it all
we'll be the ones who are still standing.

We're taking our chances,
like scar-crossed lovers.
We don't need all the answers,
when we've got each other.
So when they try to pull you down,
even if you've turned around;
You gotta let your song resound
for the people that have fallen down.
You gotta sing it out;
Sing it out now!

We're just boy meets girl
painting sunsets on top of the world.
The sky could fall, in spite of it all
we'll be the ones who are still standing.
I see the look in your eyes,
and our heartbeats begin to align.
our dreams could fall, in spite of it all,
we'll be the ones who are still standing.

You gotta sing it out!
Hold on to me now!
Sing it out, sing it out.
Track Name: Hold On
I'm sick of running, so sick of running.
Somehow I turned around and found that I was far away.
I wanna hold ya,
I need to hold ya.
I can't pretend to comprehend how things end up this way.

It's been a while, I'm in denial.
I'd hate to hear you say it's over.
I wanna turn back, but can we turn back?
I've got my doubts and I'm thinking that our fate is
always in my hands...
the gun is always in my hands.
So I've just gotta know:

Is it something real, or will it fall apart?
Will it come crashing down if I give you my heart?
So I need to know that you will hold on.
'Cause you know how it feels when you're finally home,
and you know how it hurts when you wake up alone.
So I need to know that you will hold on.

Never fading, cause we're waiting, and
I won't let go if you won't let go.
I wanna stay here, can we stay here?
I'm afraid that if we leave then we'll never know.
Maybe we should have.
Or if we would have,
we wouldn't have to say it's over.
But we can see it, so we believe it.
I've got my hopes even when I think
the gun is always in my hands.
So I've just gotta know:

Is it something real, or will it fall apart?
Will it come crashing down if I give you my heart?
So I need to know that you will hold on.
'Cause you know how it feels when you're finally home,
and you know how it hurts when you wake up alone.
So I need to know that you will hold on.

But the gun is always in my hands,
always in my..
Is it something real? Will it come crashing down?
I need to know that you will hold on.

Is it something real, or will it fall apart?
Will it come crashing down if I give you my heart?
Oh won't you promise that you'll hold on?

The gun is always in my hands.
Track Name: Never Left My Side
I can't wait, I don't wanna wait,
for an answer I can't control or create.
Where am I? Where am I?
All I've got is plenty of time,
but could that explain why
I feel left behind?
Where am I? Where am I?

On this road, so narrow,
I take your hand and find home.

I'm giving all I am now,
finding out that somehow,
I'm not alone. You never left my side.
And I say...
I'm giving all I am now,
finding out that somehow,
I'm not alone. You never left my side.

All my wrongs were never enough,
to push you away or separate us.
Where am I? Where am I?

On this road, so narrow,
you take my hand and I know.

I'm giving all I am now,
finding out that somehow,
I'm not alone. You never left my side.
And I say...
I'm giving all I am now,
finding out that somehow,
I'm not alone. You never left my side.

Yeah.

I'm giving all I am now,
finding out that somehow,
I'm not alone. You never left my side.
And I say...
I'm giving all I am now,
finding out that somehow,
I'm not alone.
You never left my side.
Track Name: Barely Breathe
I'm losing my vision, I wonder what I'm missing?
Think I've forgotten who you are.
There's something like fiction, or just a vague description,
that threw me from knowing who you are.

Here all alone, somehow...
I'm calling to you now.

I can barely breathe,
now that I can see you in me.
Feel you moving...now.

I'm waiting, I'm fading; soon enough I'll be ghost,
no longer displaying who you are.
I'm broken, heart-broken,
and now I need you the most.
I pray you're near and yet you feel so far.

Here all alone, somehow...
I'm calling to you now.

I can barely breathe,
now that I can see you in me.
Feel you moving in it all.
I'm learning from the stars,
finding who you are now in me.
Moving in me, now.

I can barely breathe,
now that I can see you in me.
Feel you moving, now.
I'm learning from the stars,
finding who you are now in me.
Feel you moving, now.

I feel you moving in me now.
Track Name: Alone
I, I don't understand.
If this was the plan all along,
then I will never be the same,
and who is to blame for this wrong?
Somehow you were stolen.

Please don't go, don't leave me here alone.
No please don't go.

I, I can't face another day
The colors replaced
with shades of grey.
Somehow you were stolen!

Please don't go, leave me here alone.
No, I can't do this on my own, alone.
No.

Please don't go, and leave me here alone...no.
I can't face the day.
No...
I won't go alone.
Track Name: Rumours of War
There's a light that's shining up ahead,
darkest night surrounds us now.
Side by side, we're marching to our fate.
Can we make it through, somehow?
Or are we too far gone?

Will we live and die by this?
Oh no!

There are wars and warring rumours;
Where my brothers, should we stand?
No one can stop me, for now I carry
both gun and cross in hand.

There's a soul inside my enemy,
who am I to take his life?
Face to face, he's just a man like me.
Is the call of love to fight?
Are we too far gone?

Will we live and die by this?
Oh no!

There are wars and warring rumours;
Where my brothers, should we stand?
No one can stop me, for now I carry
both gun and cross in hand.

There's a soul inside my enemy.
Track Name: Broken Locks
Underneath it all I'm really quite confused.
Opinions made me fall far away from you.

Take a step where you can't see and I will meet you there.

I am not the man I thought I'd be,
something's happened to me,
and I could swear that it's you.
I am not the man I hoped I'd be,
something's changing me,
and I know that it's you!

I had you figured out, fit nicely in a box.
My head was tossed about, but you broke all the locks.

Take a step where you can't see and light will meet you there.

I am not the man I thought I'd be,
something's happened to me,
and I could swear that it's you.
I am not the man I hoped I'd be,
something's changing me,
and I know that it's you!

I am not the man I thought I'd be.
Lately something's happening to me.
You were nothing like I thought you'd be.
Greater than my mind could ever see.
Track Name: Miracle
I'll fall down,
to the ground,
chained and bound.
Alone...
underneath this stone.
Weighed down by a crown,
I carry on my own.

Oh, can you hear me?
Because i'm crying out
Oh, can you hear me?

I'll go down
to the water safe and sound.
Unknown, but a touch makes me whole,
I'll hear heaven sing,
and the sound of angel's wings.

Oh, can you hear me?
because I'm crying out.
Oh, can you hear me?

Oh, you have healed me.
From all the pain I've known.
Oh, you have healed me,
and I am not alone.
Oh, you have healed me.
From all the pain I've known.
Oh, you have healed me,
and I am not alone.

No, I am not alone.
Track Name: Revolution
I feel sick and abandoned, can't believe that this happened.
I must say my heart is on the floor.
Would this count as deception?
Or are you some exception?
For your words, they leave me wanting more.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.
But we want it!
Stop looking for a quick solution to change the world.
But we want it!
We need to learn to love, we need to learn to love.

Get your fix, your conviction,
brings that thick, burning friction
that leaves me going on my way.
'Cause my ears, they won't hear it,
when your deeds don't come near it.
There's no love in anything you say.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.
But we want it!
Stop looking for a quick solution to change the world.
But we want it!
We need to learn to love, we need to learn to love.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.

Everybody wants a revolution, to change the world.
But we want it!
Stop looking for a quick solution to change the world.
But we want it!
We need to learn to love, we need to learn to love.
Track Name: Time Won't Turn Back
Another moment slips away, then the moments turn to days.
When every hand is turned away from
the ones who fade into the night,
away from pockets sealed so tight.
Kept out of mind and out of sight.
We refuse to face the truth that
beggars line our "streets of gold."

We're making a change.
The world is waiting.
There's blood on our hands,
and time won't turn back.

So will we ever right the wrong,
or be content to sing along?
Yeah what we do could change it all.
We refuse to face the truth that
beggars line our "streets of gold."

We're making a change.
The world is waiting.
There's blood on our hands,
and time won't turn back.

Time won't turn back.

Is our behavior the result of a distraction,
or will we choose again to let this one slide?
Their lives...to slide?
'Cause time won't turn back.
Time won't turn back.

Time won't turn back.

We're making a change.
The world is waiting.
There's blood on our hands,
and time won't turn back.
Track Name: Worlds
There are faces in the sky,
staring down to Earth.
And the night, a thin disguise,
letting shine their worth.
And now's the time,
give up the life you left behind.
Turn loose the sail and set a course
we leave for worlds we've never seen.

She stole your heart!
You took the siren's song she sang to heart.
Left washed upon the shore of death, you rise;
Face the life you never lived.
And now's the time,
give up the life you left behind.
Set your sights beyond the stars
that you've been shone,
to worlds you've never known.
Turn loose the sail!
Track Name: Storms
You always wanted it, but when you're saying that...
I wonder if you mean the words you say?
All along you knew what was wrong, yet ignored the winds so strong,
and storms can turn a heart to stone.

Oh, you'll never give it up, and I,
I know you really wanted to.
It's sinking with you.

I see you giving in to all the pain and then
you forget that everyone will go through this.
Another drink for hope to borrow, but
you lose your breath when drowning sorrows.
And storms will sink a heart of stone.

Oh, you'll never give it up, and I,
I know you really wanted to.
It's sinking with you.

Sinking deeper all the while,
a prayer for the child torn away
from the hope she left behind.

I know you really wanted to.

Oh, you'll never give it up, and I,
I know you really wanted to.
It's sinking with you.

(Never said goodbye, and how I wish you never had to.)
Track Name: Caves
I am lost inside the deepest hole, straining for the light ahead.
Losing grip along the dripping walls,
sliding further down.
Never ending up where I know I need to be,
and still you call for me patiently.

Oh, the works I've placed my faith in,
tried to earn my way.
Lost myself in chasing heaven,
needing but your grace.

Locked in the vice of my humanity, beaten by my own defeat.
The love of God is still a mystery,
never losing ground.
Never ending up where I know I need to be,
and still you call for me patiently.

Oh, the works I've placed my faith in,
tried to earn my way.
Lost myself in chasing heaven,
needing but your grace.

Needing but your...

Oh, the works I've placed my faith in,
tried to earn my way.
Lost myself in chasing heaven,
needing but your grace.

Needing but your grace.
Track Name: Doublethink (Caves outro)
Ain't none, dadgumit!
Track Name: Forevermore
You gave me a hand,
when I was drowning in the sea.
Alone.
You did it again,
walked the water gracefully,
to take me home.
And you say,
"It's alright cause I've got you,
and I will stay."

I will love you forever.
I will love you forevermore.

A vessel of holes,
can't brave the waves that life will bring.
And you say,
"Peace be still!"
Wave your hands and calm the storm.
And you say,
"Take my hand. Son I've got you,
and I will stay."

I will love you forever.
I will love you forevermore.

Oh my God,
you came to my rescue.
Saved my life,
and I cried because I've got you.
Now, and forever.

I will love you forever.
I will love you forevermore.
Track Name: Show Me A Sign
Wait for the light to shine at the end!
...so sick of waiting, stalling, never finding out.
What's next to come could turn it around!
Patience is fleeting, and I fear time is running out.
Is it wrong to go on? Should this end?

Show me a sign!
Oh, give me something to hold on to.
Show me a sign!
Oh Lord, 'cause it's all that I've been waiting for.
Don't wanna carry on without you,
without you.

What if the work is never enough?
Get to the meaning!
...listen close to every word.
Connecting hearts through song and verse,
the hopes and losses matching up with every word.
Is it wrong to go on? Should this end?
Is it worth our lives to try again?

Show me a sign!
Oh, give me something to hold on to.
Show me a sign!
Oh Lord, 'cause it's all that I've been waiting for.
Don't wanna carry on without you,
without you.

Show me it!
Give me something to hold on to.
Show me a sign!
Oh Lord, 'cause it's all that I've been waiting for.
Don't wanna carry on without you,
without you.

Is it worth your live to try again?
Track Name: Dear Toby (Ode du Trey)
We'll write it down,
so take this with you;
Every moment, all the good times we've had.
Letting go and moving forward,
fighting tears that try to fall.

I can't believe it's over, it's over.
It took some time to let it go.
Every step that we take is a mile we miss with you.

If letting go was ever easy,
it's beyond us, but
there's no other way!
Take the good times with the bad ones,
find the strength to hope for what is coming.

I can't believe it's over, it's over.
It took some time to let it go.
Every step that we take is a mile we miss with you.

This the best way we can try to say goodbye for now,
but it's not the last time we will see your face.

I can't believe it's over, it's over.
It took some time to let it go.
Every step that we take is a mile we miss with you.

Every step that we take is a mile we miss with you.
Track Name: Never Meant A Word
Your eyes roll at the statement,
a play at instigation.
The small talk that we've had
almost forms a conversation.
In your words, in my words,
no sign of resolution.
Could we stop, just end it?
...But not run away?

Answering the questions and you're smiling like you get it, but
living in regret won't turn it around.
Is it gone?
Is it gone?

Oh, oh stay with me,
I'll never leave you here.
It takes some time to give it away, but
you've got the heart that's waiting to change.

In slowing down the words that steer the argument,
we find that neither side meant any word of it.
In your words, in my words,
let's take them back.
There's no sense in pretending we didn't get off track.

Turning over stones and finding serpents lying under,
never solving problems, leaving everything asunder.
Can we just move on?

Oh, oh stay with me,
I'll never leave you here.
It takes some time to give it away, but
you've got the heart that's waiting to change.

In slowing down the words that steer the argument,
we find that neither side meant any word of it.
We never meant a word.
We never meant a word.

Oh, oh stay with me,
I'll never leave you here.
It takes some time to give it away, but
you've got the heart that's waiting to change.
Track Name: Confirmation Brings Sleep
Is it all so simple?
You speak, I believe it's true.
Could this hole get any deeper,
where I assume I'm apart from you?
If this real why can't I feel the way that I used to?
These bloody knees, they don't change a thing.
Your salvation feels far away.
But as the fog fades,
then I catch a glimpse of hope.

Someday we'll know
the point of all the struggle.
With pain we grow,
to fight the things that drag us down.

I'm exhausted with this burden I carry.
If it's not soon lifted, its
myself I'll bury.
If you can find what the problem is,
I need, need a break from it.
How many times will I try to fix this
'til the point comes across and I
seek forgiveness?

Someday we'll know
the point of all the struggle.
With pain we grow,
to fight the things that drag us down.

Your love is more than a feeling,
your love is more than a feeling.
Feeling, feeling.

I try to find some peace of mind, but
I can't reach out and take what's mine.
You breathe and then my soul is light,
confirmation brings us sleep at night.

Someday, we'll know...someday.
With pain we grow...with pain.

Someday we'll know
the point of all the struggle.
With pain we grow,
to fight the things that drag us down.
How many times will I try to fix this
'til the point comes across and I
seek forgiveness?
Track Name: Well, You've Got My Attention
Outside looking in on
what I think I should be.
All that I'm secure in is my
insecurity (is what's killing me.)
Is what's killing me!
Is it wrong to question,
when God takes back the best one?
You took my favorite to make me desperate.

Oh, oh
When I hear you speak to me,
it can't be put 'to words.
And I never want to leave.

Everything falls away at your word.

What's left for me now?
My throat is parched, I've fallen down.
Weighed down by my shame,
no one left but me to blame.

Is it wrong to question
when God takes back the best one?
I'll search for your intentions, and
you'll get my full attention.

Oh, oh
When I hear you speak to me,
it can't be put 'to words.
And I never want to leave.

Everything falls away at your word.

Oh, oh
When I hear you speak to me,
it can't be put 'to words.
And I never want to leave.

You have done what's best for me.
...Took away and made me free.

Oh, oh
When I hear you speak to me,
it can't be put 'to words.
And everything is beautiful.
