about

These two songs were written and recorded before we even had a band name. Needless to say, these songs are very dear to our hearts as they paved the way to what would become TENTS.

Track Name: The Hush
In mornings when you sleep
on porches quiet keeps
In the hush I hear you breathe


I was calling out your name
my belongings in my hands I was moving away
The Seed grows and floats away

Oh dear, did you call my name
Through fields that burn
neath birds of prey
'Cause I gave all of my plans today
to the wind that moves carries me away (carries me away)


The beginning of the end
in the quietness you mend
In the stillness I feel you bend

I was calling out your name
I was underneath your thumb
I was finding my own way
Seed grows and floats away
I told you to be brave


Oh dear, did you call my name
Through fields that burn
neath birds of prey
'Cause I gave all of my plans today
to the wind that moves carries me away (carries me away)



'Cause I gave all of my plans today
to the wind that moves carries me away (carries me away)
Track Name: Acorn
spinning down the circuits
diving in to old wives' tales
shaking off the dullness
shaking off the noise that kills

But when the train rolls to a stop
will my vigor rust?
will my memory deceive me
when the steady rhythm leaves me

or will I like the acorn
falling from the tree
gathered up with purpose
joyfully for need

running from the circus
hiding 'neath the canopy
a ritual observance
hoping it will bring me peace

but when the images I see
slowly bend and leave
when I return from dreaming
will starlings steal my seedlings?

Or will I like the tortoise
moving through the sea
fearlessly in service
or quietly for need

Or will I like the acorn
falling from the tree
gathered up with purpose
joyfully for need

Or will I like the tortoise
moving through the sea
fearlessly in service
or quietly for need
