about

Westrin & Mowry’s new collection of songs on "The World to Take Control" entertains the age old question, whether it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all. As the 3-song EP attempts to answer this question, the answers are often as complicated as the feeling of falling in love itself. Whether dealing with the sudden loss of a true love in "Surface to Air," the circuitous wanderlust of young love in the title track, or the desperate and unrequited variety in "Ways & Means," the feeling can be equal parts euphoric, mesmerizing, and confounding. But in the end, win or lose, it seems the only thing that keeps the song on repeat well into the morning hours is the existence of the feeling, and the prospect that someone else might feel it too.

Track Name: Surface To Air
Surface to Air

If there's anything you want
If there's anything you need
What's the difference, baby won't tell me
With a hand behind your back
Baby come with a nervous laugh
Oh you never could forgive the past and let well be

And he's clouded your head
From the time he broke your heart
And you're stranded in bed
Just waiting for a spark

Surface to air
And your dreams disappear
Nothing but ground
And your heart coming down

If there's anything you see
Anything, would you promise me?
I can't take another probably
I wanna set you free
One glance at happiness
Is the existence of the rest
You always play what you've got left, you won't well be

And he's clouded your head
From the time he broke your heart
And you're stranded in bed
Just waiting for a spark

Surface to air
And your dreams disappear
Nothing but ground
And your heart coming down

And you can't quite get your head around
The silence of that once familiar sound
And all these things beneath the sun
Seem darker when you're only one
Surface to air

And he's clouded your head
From the time he broke your heart
And you're stranded in bed
Just waiting for a spark x 2

Surface to air
And your dreams disappear
Nothing but ground
And your heart coming down
Surface to air
And your dreams disappear
Nothing but ground
And your heart coming down
Coming down, coming down, coming down
Track Name: The World To Take Control
The World to Take Control

Breathing out your name, through the pain
I thought that you were gone
Somewhere down the road
So happy I was told, had to carry on

What kind of life to live
Where I no longer give into belief
The ways some people show
Just how a heart can grow, there a upon their sleeve

If it feels right, then it feels right
How can we then return a love so cold?
If it feels right, then it feels right
Til you allow the world to take control

You had your goodbye well rehearsed
But still you rushed your lines
And I could not erase the lie upon your face
As you told me why…

You told me all the things
That love alone could bring was not enough
You said there’s more to life
Than thoughts of paradise, and the dreaming of

If it feels right, then it feels right
How can we then return a love so cold?
If it feels right, then it feels right
Till you allow the world to take control
Till you allow the world to take control
Till you allow the world to take control

Breathing out your name, seems so strange
To think that all was lost
Then to hear the news, my heart could not refuse
You were coming home.

You said the world was wide
And everything outside your heart did run
But every leap of faith
As empty as the day that you left my arms

If it feels right, then it feels right
How can we then return a love so cold?
If it feels right, then it feels right
Till you allow the world to take control
Till you allow the world to take control
Till you allow the world to take control
Till you allow the world to take control
Track Name: Ways & Means
Ways & Means

Well I haven't the time
Nor the ways and means
To forget you
And I haven't the heart
Nor the kind of light
To forgive you

But I'd gladly take you back
Love, I would turn my back on the truth
When the night turns colder
And the dark waves pull us under
I will always be there for you

Deep in the night
Where a candle burns
For drunken memories
Take all of the joy
Learn to dance and sing
For only the lonely

But I'd gladly take you back
Love, I would turn my back on the truth
When the night turns colder
And the dark waves pull us under
I will always be there for you

Daylight, twilight, nears I'm alright
Dreams have learned just what I need
They've learned to set me free
From you

When the night turns colder
And the dark waves pull us under
I will always be there
I will always be there
I will always be there
