Song of the Week: “Silhouettes”

Many of you will already be familiar with Colony House (formerly known as Caleb). They toured with Andrew Peterson for many of the shows in support of Light for the Lost Boy, but what you are likely unfamiliar with is the way they’ve matured as songwriters and performers. Their new album, When I Was Younger, produced by Ben Shive, conjures up comparisons to bands like Keane, Phoenix, Leagues, and The Killers, and the infectious blend is nearly impossible to resist. Check out their single “Silhouettes” for yourself.

Are you half empty?
Why don’t you fill up?
There’s no sense in holding onto something broken,

Did you lose something?
Or someone you love?
You’ve still got that story tell it every morning,

Driving down a road, down a road that’s rolling
All the lovely memories you hearts been holding
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Driving down a road, a road that’s hidden,
All your faithful memories, your faith for living
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
So come on!

Nothing is perfect,
For that there’s no cure,
So don’t you start to bury the good with the bad, and the ugly,

Driving down a road, down a road that’s rollin’
All the lovely memories you hearts been holding
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Driving down a road, a road that’s hidden,
All your faithful memories, your faith for living
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
So come on!

And I can feel your heartbeat slipping away
It’s hard to catch the light when you’re running from the day!
So wait for it! Wait for it! Wait!

Driving down a road, down a road that’s rolling
All the lovely memories you hearts been holding
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Driving down a road, a road that’s hidden,
All your faithful memories, your faith for living
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
Nothing silhouettes till the lights come on,
So come on!
