Carolyn Dixon There’s an unmistakable sense of nostalgia attached to We Were Here, a wistful set of songs that embraces the country-pop influences of Lamb's adolescence . Reflecting both the bold aspirations of youth and the bittersweet loss of innocence, We Were Here finds the Southern California native eager to leave her mark on the world.

Track Name: We Were Here
VERSE 1:
Let’s take a ride down the coastal highway
Find ourselves an abandoned little hideaway
Write our names in the leaves of an aloe plant
What’s wrong with that?
Or take a chance on a dance club road trip
LA to SoHo picking up glowsticks
Spell it out with big purple words in the air
Everywhere

CHORUS:
We were here
We were here, yeah
Life’s too short to live it on the down low
I want the whole wide world to know
We were here

VERSE 2:
I got the urge to cruise out to Malibu
I’m so there for a double dare tattoo
A souvenir of the crazy thoughts we had
Or maybe we’ll look back on a
Real good time just hanging out
Play our guitars in the next random town
Sing some songs to make all the people smile
They’ll remember the night

CHORUS

Yeah

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

CHORUS 2:
We were here
We were here, yeah
Life’s too short to live it on the down low
I want the whole wide world to know
Life’s too short to live it on the down low
I want the whole wide world to know
We were here
We were here, yeah
Track Name: Something In the Blood
VERSE 1:
I’m made a little different but I’m not broken
Nineteen years in and I’m still learning
This road may be rough but I know where I’m going

CHORUS:
Something in the blood
Running inside me
Keeps me pushing through
Something in the blood
That’s what drives me
Keeps me fighting just like you
A little bit of spark, a whole lotta fire
It’s there in everyone
Something in the blood

VERSE 2:
“Why’d this happen to me?” that’s not the question
“What can I do?” is the one that I’m asking
I’m chasing my dreams, it’s just who I am

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Sometimes I wanna quit
Somedays it gets ugly
Somehow I rise above it

CHORUS

Something in the blood
Something in the blood

I’m made a little different but I’m not broken
Track Name: Wild Rose
VERSE 1:
She’s a bundle of tangled up mixed emotions
Unsteady as a full moon on the ocean
Never knows if she’s gonna sink or swim this time

On the outside you would never know
That on the inside she feels all alone
Like the winter cold, she’s waiting on the sun to shine

CHORUS:
She’s a wild rose
Sweet and beautiful, oh whoa
She’ll fake a smile when,
All the while she,
Just need someone there to hold her close
She’s a wild, wild rose

VERSE 2:
She’s an “I don’t want to tell you what I’m about”
Boxed up in her room screaming, “Let me out!”
But at the same time she does want to let you in

She’s a “leave me alone, but come back soon”
Kind of woman with a little girl attitude
Afraid that her own thorns will break her skin

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Makes you want to tell her
This won’t last forever
Just hold your head up high
And know...

CHORUS

Wild, wild rose
Wild, wild rose
Track Name: Endless Summer
VERSE 1:
There’s a trusty old, rusted out wood paneled wagon
Sitting in the Californian mud
Time is a tide pool that never stops turning
And somewhere the surf’s always up

CHORUS 1:
When the palm trees shiver
The dolphins remember
The Harleys that rumbled like thunder
The tourists leave town
The shops all shut down
At the end of the endless summer

VERSE 2:
Nobody lives in that ramshackle kingdom
Of cottages down on the beach
21 ghosts built from boards of old shipwrecks
A man with no name sold their dreams

CHORUS 2:
When the palm trees shiver
The dolphins remember
The long lonely song of winter
The locals leave town
With nothing but the sound
Of the end of the endless summer

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

CHORUS 3:
The ferris wheel sits up high on the pier
The last standing small town wonder
The truth is reflected in the house of mirrors
It’s the end of the endless summer

The end of the endless summer

OUTRO:
Time is a tide pool that never stops turning
And somewhere the surf’s always up
