released October 6, 2017

Drums, all acoustic guitars and some electric guitars set on the record were recorded at Cal Pau studios in Sant Pere Molanta on March 2016.
Other instruments and vocals were recorded at Ultramarinos Costa Brava in Sant Feliu de Guíxols on March 2016 and some added random days during the spring of 2017
Santi Garcia recorded and mixed it all
All songs produced by Santi Garcia
Victor Garcia did the mastering at Ultramarinos Mastering in Barcelona
Some might say it’s a solo album but it’s absolutely not: a bunch of friends whom I’ll never be thankful enough came by and helped me through it
Enric Pla: drums
Victor Garcia: drums
Santi Garcia: bass
Vidal Soler: acoustic guitars, electric guitars, lap steel guitar, mandolin
Guille Caballero: keybords and sinthesizers
Marc Clos: shaker, maracas, tambourine, vibraphone, glockenspiel and many more
and special guest Fermí Roca played the drums on #12
I just played acoustic guitars and managed to sing my best

Monica Pallí | www.monicapalli.com and Coaner Codina | www.coaner.com imagined the art for the album and made it real with lots of imagination and the help of Salvador Sabater’s drone

Jordi Llansamà at BCore Disc thought it would be a great idea to lose some money making another record together

Track Name: The Grey Lane
I will follow your path
when my feet they won't touch the ground
and the faces I left behind
are the thrills I chase out at night

Will you clear up my mind
when I stand up and face the dark?
and the fields they'll take me down
and the streets they'll be lost and found

And a wise man he once told me:
- keep the memories in your mind
They'll help you through the night when you're away
It's so easy to pretend that we'll stay here for all time
will you help me through the night when I’m away?
Track Name: Honolulu
I found a little sound to break
when I was needing some time alone
You threw a bit of shine when it was dark in my place
I’m looking for a better way
I’m not the one who pretends to fall
but I can make it any other day

And when the troubles are fading away
I’ll try to make you feel right
And every single word now I cannot say
It's gonna make you feel alright
Now all the troubles are fading away

When there is nothing I can do
at least I’m trying to fix myself
I don't need any sign to see we're close to an end
I’m waiting for a miracle
when I am feeling this cold inside
I guess it's something that I just can take

And when the troubles are fading away
I’ll try to make you feel right
And every single word now I cannot say
It's gonna make you feel alright
Now all the troubles are fading away
I’m gonna make you feel right
Track Name: Say Stop
I’m feeling kind of weird and it's not the first time
I try my luck on you and it didn't work that much
I used to know the story but my brain just got stacked
It's somewhere out of reach and it makes me feel so sad
It's somewhere out of reach and it feels like hiding under a rock

Sometimes I’d like to quit but you never say stop
I’m begging on my knees but you just can't get enough
I got myself a cool book at the sentimental shop
to show me how to live when I’m never looking back
to show me how to live when I’m never looking back on the track

We are all strangers beware of danger
filling our brains with nothing but fakes
Carrying our bodies in casual parties
Waiting for someone who's taking care
Looking for someone who's not scared

I miss your tender smile and the way you turn around
I’m never getting used and you’re never coming back
I’ll drink another bottle just to see I am alive
I wonder how it feels to be someone on the run
I wonder how it feels to be someone on the run for a while

We are all strangers beware of danger
filling our brains with nothing but fakes
Carrying our bodies in casual parties
Waiting for someone who's taking care
Looking for someone who's not scared to dance the night away
Track Name: Be With You
I could lay down with you forever
wait for the changing weather
till it comes a new day
On the rise of a burning sunlight
I’ll take you to a craddle
that you can't even see tonight

There's a road where I lost my feelings
It brings me to a limit
where I wonder if I should begin
To grow up every flower
waiting for some trouble
now you can't even see

‘Cause I’ve waited enough
even though I could sleep forever
I will face the night
Where you go I will go forever
I’ll turn into a rebel
just to be with you

I won't change a line
even though I could take another road
I will show you how beatiful
are the second chances
Waiting for an ending:
just to be with you
Track Name: Lovelight
I wanna get a little love on the saturday night
I wanna take you for a ride it's just gonna be fun
I wanna have a little lovelight
I wanna get a little lovelight

And when the forces of the feelings are struggling to fight
I wanna dance I wanna jump it's just gonna be fun
I wanna have a little lovelight
I wanna get a little lovelight

I won't feel I’m getting closer to the end
till my fingers are a ball I just can't play
I will call you in the morning once again
till we get a little lovelight
till we get a little lovelight in the end

I wanna get a little love on the saturday night
I wanna get into the light it's just gonna be fun
I wanna have a little lovelight
I wanna get a little lovelight

And when the forces of the feelings are struggling to fight
I wanna walk around the sun it's just gonna be fun
I wanna have a little lovelight
I wanna get a little lovelight

I won't feel I’m getting closer to the end
till my fingers are a ball I just can't play
I will call you in the morning once again
till we get a little lovelight
till we get a little lovelight in the end
Track Name: Time To Go
I am dreaming of a life that's never ending
I’m turning on the screw
And I’m sitting in the corner next to my house
I think I’d better choose
If you could leave me alone for just a minute
It's time for me to move
'cause i feel like in the middle of a fight and
I know I’m gonna lose

I’ll keep walking in my shoes
well I just have to try out
I will break down every rule
that I don't wanna follow
'cause I might be leaving soon
and i just need the time to go

I’m a stranger in the town that never sleeps and
I’m lying in my roof
There must be a reason why I’m not the only
staring at the moon
It was easier when you were ten years old
you had nothing to proof
Now you just can't getaway from any duty
what else I gotta do?

I’ll keep walking in my shoes
well I just have to try out
I will break down every rule
that I don't wanna follow
'cause I might be leaving soon
and I just need the time to go
Track Name: Summer Promotion
I had to figure it out
I had to leave an emotion
I never thought it was fine
I never thought I’d get so close

I just deal with my life
because I don't wanna let go
Sometimes I feel so excited
I just feel like my heart grows

And giving it up it's never been a real option
I’d just walk out when I got nothing to say
Go figure it out here comes the summer promotion
should we come back where we belong once again?

I had to spit it all out
I had to leave an emotion
I found myself on the run
I was fighting my own ghosts

And giving it up it's never been a real option
I’d just walk out when I got nothing to say
Go figure it out here comes the summer promotion
should we come back where we belong once again?

I met a good friend in my teens
He showed me how to play everything
He told me stories by the sea
He pushed away the clouds over me
We spent some time beneath the trees
Walked passed the fields surrounding the hills
I was so blind but now I see
If you watch out you’ll know what I mean
Track Name: Little Girl
Little girl
You were only just a child when you left
to the country where the clouds are black
Where the sirens are so true
Then I knew

And I feel gold
everytime you get to reach my soul
Understanding for the truth to be told
where the sirens are so true
Then I knew what I knew

And everybody knows the truth:
Girl, I love you like a fool
I know our enemies are cruel
but I do
I really do

I was down
I was searching for the truth to come out
And I waited for so long to be drowned
where the sirens are so true
Then I knew what I knew

And everybody knows the truth:
Girl, I love you like a fool
I know our enemies are cruel
but I do
I really do
Track Name: In My Dreams
I will stay by your side
I’ve been here for so long 
and I’ll wait by the phone
until you call me down on monday

I will sleep when I’m done
I’ve got no strength to be shown
When you leave me alone
I’ll wait for you to come and hold me

And it feels like I’m on the desert quietness
everytime that I could see you in my dreams
They'll arise and flow all around me
Everytime that I could see you in my dreams

There's a secret I own
that I want you to know
It was meant to be told
against no law, once in a lifetime

And it feels like I’m on the desert quietness
everytime that I could see you in my dreams
They'll arise and flow all around me
Everytime that I could see you in my dreams
Track Name: Fall Out Boy
Well I feel much better when the sun goes down
and I can smell a little through the air
When I don't see anyone walking by my side
but I can close my eyes and see you there

I know sometimes I’m gonna be the one who tricks me
I will never be so close to lose my fears
Once you think you know it all it breaks in pieces
It's the time to be alone
What you pretend?
You are a fall out boy

Well I feel much better when the sun goes down
I move my body outside of the frame
And I can't see anyone running on my back
but I can close my eyes and still see you there

I know sometimes I’m gonna be the one who tricks me
but I will never be so close to lose my fears
Once you think you know it all it breaks in pieces
It's the time to be alone
What you pretend?
You are a fall out boy
Track Name: Up All Night
I got my room disinfected
I let my phone disconnected
Yeah! I was waiting my lonely I
When things just go complicated
I got my stuff and I waited
for you to come in the morning light

I will wake up in the middle of the night
To get by you I won't waist another time
Words are gonna make you wonder for a while
Since you've made a fool of mine
because maybe that's a start
Should I wait for you up all night?

I left some flowers on your bed side
I wonder how you get so high
I keep on waiting for stars to shine
And things just go complicated
It just came true now I made it
to lose my head when you're not around

I will wake up in the middle of the night
To get by you I won't waist another time
Words are gonna make you wonder for a while
Since you've made a fool of mine
because maybe that's a start
Should I wait for you up all night?
Track Name: The Ballad Of Fermí
I’ve been searching for some place to go
since the very first day I was born
I’ve been chasing some clouds in the wind
and the storm that will dry out my skin

Comes a day I’ve got nothing to show
Comes a day I’d forget to live on
I’ll keep waiting for you at the beach
In the house I built for you and me

I’ll go back in time to watch that scene
where we first met when we first kissed
I will rise my voice across the fields
till the eco brings it back to me
I will go as far as I can see
I will make my way into the sea
I will take my heart away and leave it all behind
till I forget who I am
