about

Centuries Old's debut EP. Each of the five tracks was uniquely written to express a different aspect of musical composition. Even so, the songs flow as a continuous piece, and is sure to musically articulate the idea of versatility, misunderstanding, and love. That being said, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.

Track Name: Follow
It’s few, and it’s far between, what’s right for you and right for me
Sacred love, I should have let it last, instead, I smothered it with my past
Questioned motives, trickled down your cheeks, tears falling gracelessly

Your love is like the ocean deep, tidal waves crashing down on me
I’ll follow you until the end, all the way to the beginning and back again
I’ll give you all, all of my heart, the whole thing and, no, not just one part
I swear, I swear, I swear I will, I will follow you still

Foolish wishes cast upon myself, should have known better I suppose
That ole love, I let it go, burdened down but not forgotten but set in stone
I apologize, for what I’ve done, no longer will I waiver like the wind blows

Your love is like the ocean deep, tidal waves crashing down on me
I’ll follow you until the end, all the way to the beginning and back again
I’ll give you all, all of my heart, the whole thing and, no, not just one part
I swear, I swear, I swear I will, I will follow you still

Love so divine, it brings a peace of mind, to my soul
I can’t place it in a book or on a shelf, it covers me whole
Love so divine, it brings a peace of mind, to my soul
I can’t place it in a book or on a shelf, it covers me whole

Your love is like the ocean deep, tidal waves crashing down on me
I’ll follow you until the end, all the way to the beginning and back again
I’ll give you all, all of my heart, the whole thing and, no, not just one part
I swear, I swear, I swear I will, I will follow you still
Track Name: Fallen For You
My hands, trembled as they shook
Unsure words forgotten in a book
And a fever swept over me
And my eyes, could not take another look
Innocence was all that it took
And I can’t remember anymore
Vagueness, and its trace of indolence
Oh me, oh my arrogance
It's brought me down
And I can’t blame it on my absence
My lack thereof benevolence
Has brought to my knees once more

She broke my heart, as the rain poured down
Gone to no end, wouldn’t even here me out
In the cold I went, away from this town
Where to my love
Then came the doubt
You left me here, without a second guess
Misread was my love, I wasn’t ready yet
These nights are cold, come back to me yes
I’ll wait for you
With no regret

I thought, I found my way, back to the home, that I once knew
But then, I looked around, it all had changed, except for you
My years, have come to pass, I said at last, that I knew the truth
Fables all set aside, I can confide, I've fallen for you
Track Name: Into Your Hands
Uncertain is the path for the unfortunate alike
Kings and queens have fallen in their time
You seem so sure, but worry fills my heart
I question your aim, I don’t want to fall apart

Comfort can’t console the dismay you place on me
I’m still not sure if this is where I’m meant to be
Your gentle words help to cease my fear and strife
Into your hands I place all that is my life

If only for a second, time stood still for us
But unfortunate the circumstance, it seemed in such a rush
My heart put on a string, for you to take and guide
Please don’t batter it like the unrelenting tide

Comfort can’t console the dismay you place on me
I’m still not sure if this is where I’m meant to be
Your gentle words help to cease my fear and strife
Into your hands I place all that is my life
