about

Tahoma Texas

Tahoma crosses over the thresholds of lucid, harmony-based folk, and classic, compelling
Americana Rock. Emblematic of artists like Ryan Adams and My Morning Jacket,
Tahoma boasts a flawless blend of indie-rock, Americana-soul, and classic rock n’ roll. Their
new single “Emerald Ring” emulates the band’s transformation from wine-sipping romantic
folk to definitively, classic American rock music.

Track Name: Polished Stone
I watch with fiery eyes aglow
The embers of a gentle soul
Who brought me here once before
And left my heart a polished stone, a polished stone

The way of words is hard on me
I'm cautious with the way they leave
And I stand aside to only be
The boy I know and the man you see, the man you see

Time will keep me here
In time I will disappear
And long to be sincere
In telling you I love you dear
Track Name: On That Ride
She's chasing hope, she's chasing home
She spends her time out by the moon
And her heart is old but it's not alone
So she just pours until it's gone

I Could never let her down
But like and orphan I forgot the sound
This winding road has taken us for a ride
And the ocean side just beats this heart of mine

I've waited calm and I've waited past
I've waited slow now I'm waiting fast
The harbor's calling for the ships to arrive
And I hope that I will see her on that ride

I Could never leave her now
Sometimes I wonder if I know why
This vague old heart keeps teaching me how
To look for her but leave her lonely now
Track Name: Life I Couldn't Lead
(verse 1)
In the afternoon I look to song
To remind me where I'm from
Most afternoons aren't long
And I stare out the window in my home
And I wait for your return
And I stare at the canyons in my walls
(chorus)
I bought another dream
Because my life it was in need
I sold another day
put those lies away you say
ln the wake of my own greed I found a life didn't need
And a vision, a vision of her
(verse 2)
And I took another road
To give my mind somewhere to go
And my mind took another road
And your heart can nail you down
And your ears might fear the sound
And you'll fear the sound of tears
(repeat chorus)
(bridge)
Of her
Of her
Of her
Track Name: Honest Mark
There is an open field held by two thoughts
There is an open field of hurt and pain and loss
There is another world that I am forced to feed
And portray the role of a soldier in Calvary
And here I find myself in thought and lack of haste
But there is meaning in the lives in which you waste

Though the morning might, evaporate
You won't let it get away
These are stranger times and we hesitate
But you won't let it get away
No you won't let it get away
No you won't let it get away
No not today
No not today
No not today
No not today

And there are arsonists, below my feet
And there are helpless men waiting to take their seat
In the past they've held themselves in such high regards
Yet to see them take their chair is such an honest mark
And my brother he is waiting for me on the other side
And when I finally reach him we'll laugh, we'll talk, we'll cry

Though the morning might, evaporate
You won't let it get away
These are stranger times and we hesitate
But you won't let it get away
No you won't let it get away
No you won't let it get away
No not today
No not today
No not today
No not today

The dreams we hide upon the lives we wear
The moment in your eyes when all was fair
And I was sure that we could get away
But not today
No not today
No not today
No not today
Track Name: Dark as Coal
It's alright if we go down roads just to find another end
And I don't mind if you show your heart
Cause morning time is for making life and being thrown inside of it
And it's alright if you can't slow down

Don't you wanna know from where your loneliness is waking
Don't you ever wanna close your eyes
Your weariness is hiding well below the surface
And it's hoping that you're gonna change your mind

It's alright if we hold back words just to fall inside of them
Because in time we will learn our thoughts
And these night skies, as cold as rivers and dark as coal
Will blind our eyes to reach each others soul

Don't you wanna know from where your loneliness is waking
Don't you ever wanna close your eyes
Your weariness is hiding well below the surface
And it's hoping that you're gonna change your mind

It's alright if we go down roads just to find another end
And I don't mind if you show your heart
