Pendulum swinging side to side Taking us all on its ride There’s no balance we can find There are a few who will decide Which of us will survive For now an ocean to divide I want sixty Spanish horses to carry me home My heart is settled but still I roam I found paradise but I don’t wanna stay I want sixty Spanish horses to carry me away I wanna help I wanna try Wanna work hard to stay alive Though it’s easier to hide I need something I recognize If we could see through their eyes Just think of all we’d recognize I want sixty Spanish horses to carry me home My heart is settled but still I roam I found paradise but I don’t wanna stay I want sixty Spanish horses to carry me away

Hold My Hand 01:49
You need a lot and ask for less Your careless words, my minds a mess There are things I need to hear Hearing I fill you with fear I hear that I fill you with fear Am I far too sensitive? Weighing what I get and give I'm afraid to make demands Shaking still I need to stand My legs are shaking, still I stand It's not a trap I'm laying down My roots are grasping for the ground You're free to go, welcome to stay Walk over them and walk away Walk over them and walk away We are one ocean apart Still you daily break my heart Relieved you are to separate Between us only space And still you push me away I'm not here to limit you Please do what you want to do Don't blame me cause you hate this town Because you know that you're not bound I'll miss you but I don't need you around I don't want you to promise time Just to be honest, to be kind Just to love me while you can Relax your fist and hold my hand Relax your fist and hold my hand

Get It Right 03:25
Everyone’s lost Even those who claim to know the way What is the cost Of moving so fast I want to finish last? Lost in the dust This race has been long decided Everything’s gonna rust Everybody’s got a war inside ‘em Hesitating, the stakes are high We’re all trying to get it right Still we make mistakes sometimes We’re all trying to get it right Everyone is lost Even those who claim to know the way What is the cost? This race has been long decided We’re all trying to get it right…

Holy Whisper 03:49
Well if there’s no stars falling In your sky tonight Don’t leave your wishes Dying in the light Cuz there’s a warm sun waiting On the other side Of the cold blue night And you’re gonna make it through It’s just what you do So when you’re up on the mountain And the wind blows cold And your heart feels old As the day goes down Don’t you worry About the frozen blue As it settles in on you Just listen to the sound Can you hear it now Oh Holy Whisper Can you hear it now? Well everything’s dying And there ain’t no way around It all goes in the ground And it’s coming for you But there’s a warm sun waiting On the other side Of the cold blue night And you’re gonna make it through It’s just what you do Oh Holy Whisper Can you hear it now?

Celebrate 03:33
We do not try to decide for you So let us do what we want to do With our homes and our bodies And our bones and our trees And our sun and our money is for fun We want to be the ones to decide What we make with our lives What we make with our hands What we take from the land Celebrate cuz we can Stay up late and stargaze with the moon What is driving you to seek control Have you ever tried to let it go? There is space in the world For us all have you heard? There’s no race to be won No it’s all so absurd! Let’s get lost among the trees Where everyone will let us be To build with our hands To give to the land Stay up late cuz we can Celebrate!

White Noise 06:20
Believe in things you can’t see Sometimes the truth doesn’t come with proof Don’t ask anyone to bleed for you They don’t have to put their pain out on display When they say how it feels Just believe that it’s real Can you hear a word In this cacophony Some of us less easily heard Listen and you’ll see that there’s So much White Noise Living in denial There’s a real pain with a strong voice Listen awhile Ask yourself because you must If there are times that you trust Depending who you’re talking to Whether they look a lot like you If it takes effort to relate That’s an effort we should make We should know what’s at stake You’ve been talking so loud For so long now Your words, they are weapons Holding someone down So much White Noise Living in denial There’s a real pain with a strong voice Listen awhile Believe in things you can’t see Sometimes the truth doesn’t come with proof Don’t ask anyone to bleed for you So much white noise Quiet awhile…

about

It’s a long and bumpy road to Mas Casanova. The hills are covered with old horses. Grazing, shivering in the cold wind of early winter. After dozens of steep turns and deep potholes, there it finally is, tucked away between the pine trees: Merçè and Xevi’s old farm. Though maybe farm is not the right word to describe Mas Casanova. You might call it a retirement home for horses. Or an organic chicken and horse farm. But maybe Merçè’s own description is the most accurate: a home for horses and people.

The music you hold in your hands was written, played and recorded in this magical place in 7 days. 7 days of getting to know each other. 7 days of long walks up and down hills. 7 days of patting Chiqui on the back and whispering to old horses. 7 days of putting wood on the fire. 7 days of scribbling words in notebooks and adjusting melodies. 7 days of playing drums with dry potatoes on sticks. 7 days of singing. 7 days among horses.

We hope you enjoy the music.
