about

My new album is called "California". I am excited to share these songs with you! It is my love letter to my favorite state and all the stories that have happened while I've been here. But please don't expect every song to be about palm trees, rock stars, and surfing. It's a little different than that :)

Track Name: Slow Down
You're always on a mission
Afraid you'll fall behind
Never stopping for a moment
For the good things you might find
You never pause for a second
To listen to the truth
Slow down, you're gonna get there soon
Slow down, life is calling you
Slow down.

You could stop to smell the roses
Have a moment in the sun
Wondering what's around the corner
Just around the bend
You think the grass is always greener
On the other side of the fence

You're always looking for something else
Behind another door
Slow down, you're gonna get there soon
Slow down, life is calling you
Slow down.

Speeding through time
Eager to see what you'll find
Gotta pull it all together
Racing through life
But you don't see the telltale signs
Don't you know what really matters
Is right before your eyes
Track Name: Signs of Life
I was stuck
Had a run of bad luck
Had a feeling that the best years were behind me
So I prayed
For the pain to go away
Don't wanna have to live this way
Don't wanna be afraid be
I've been holding onto memories
Should have let them go like the falling leaves
I should be looking for these
Signs of life
Should be looking for a heartbeat at somewhere
I know there's Signs of life
Should be looking for so much more
I know
I've been down
I've been crying all the time
Over things that happened long ago
I'll have to let them be
I'm trying to break free
I know there's something better on
The other side for me
Don't wanna waster another day
I'm done with this, I've got plans to make
There's no time to lose
Gotta look for Signs of life
Should be I looking for a heartbeat at somewhere
I know there's Signs of life
Should be looking for so much more
I know
I never lost that feeling
I always held on tight
I still believe in love
And it's all around, gotta find these Signs of life
Track Name: Looking for Sunshine
Looking For Sunshine Words and music by Shannon Hurley

Those summer days keep slipping away from me
I made mistakes, now you're running away from here
I can't pull you back out of yesterday
You're too far
I'm going crazy
Looking for Sunshine
Was it in my mind
Maybe you'll come back
I keep thinking someday
You'll give me a sweet sign
Hoping you walls will come tumbling down
My silent heart is waiting to follow you
In the dark, I'm pleading to let me through
'Cause I can't stand in the shadows of yesterday
It's too hard
I'm going crazy
Looking for Sunshine
Was it in my mind
Maybe you'll come back
I keep thinking someday
You'll give me a sweet sign
Hoping your walls will come tumbling down
Shine your light on the shadows and let me know
Where you are
I'm going crazy
Looking for Sunshine
Was it in my mind
Maybe you'll come back
I keep thinking someday
You'll give me a sweet sign
Hoping your walls will come tumbling down
Track Name: Stay
Stay Words and Music by Shannon Hurley Copyright 2011

A change is comin' with the season
It breaks my heart to see you're leavin'
Baby there is no need to explain
And if there's any doubt how I'm feelin'
I won't be trying to look for the meaning
If we're meant to go our separate ways
'Cause love is a crazy thing
You never know where it leads
You know what you need Don't leave it up to me
Stay if you wanna stay
Fly if you wanna leave this behind I will understand
I won't be the one to say goodbye
I won't be the one to tell you
Not to follow where your heart leads you
If you need a little room to breathe
If you wish to make it so I'll find a way to let you go
So open up and let your own heart speak
Life is a funny thing
You never know what it brings
How can I keep you here when you're wanting to be free
Stay if you wanna stay
Fly if you wanna leave this behind I will understand
I won't be the one to say goodbye
Even as I hold you in my arms
I can feel you slip away
There is a road that we must travel
Maybe it will lead you back someday
(CH)
So say goodbye
Donʼt make me be the one to say goodbye
