Spend some time with us in the studio, on the stage, with our friends... in the tour van making weird animal noises. "Iterations of Me" is every iteration of us: the silly, the contemplative, the beautiful, the rockin', the harmonious, the improvised, and at least for us, the unexpected. This album is not exactly one we saw coming, but we're sure glad it did.

Track Name: Mystery Loves Company featuring Six of One - Daydreams and Melodies
you were someone
that I was somewhat
familiar with
in daydreams and melodies

i was nothing
if not looking
for you

you were sunshine
and flowers and rivers
and stars in the open skies
of the southern west

i was more of an
acquired taste
Track Name: Mystery Loves Company featuring K5 - Hoy Dejaste de Morir
hoy dejaste de morir
hoy tu ser te pide más
regresó el color a tus labios
y tu piel abandona el gris
que fingía la humildad

hoy dejaste de sufrir
hoy te late el corazón
hoy la vida toma un paso
más allá del liderazgo
del orgullo y del dolor

y hoy eres tú, la misma que arriesgó
y no se dejó vencer por el mundo y la ilusión
hoy se ve de nuevo un rasgo, una y otra vez
de esa luz que se apagó

hoy comienzas a vivir
se oye solo tu canción
marcha el tiempo más despacio
y se abren los espacios
de la mente en tu honor

y hoy estás aquí, la misma que amó
y no se pudo perder lo que el día le ofreció
hoy se ve de nuevo un rasgo, una y otra vez
de esa luz que fuiste tú

y hoy creo en ti
hoy creo en el amor
hoy se ve de nuevo un rasgo
una y otra vez
Track Name: Mystery Loves Company featuring Ingrid Capparelli Gerling - Only for a Moment
service station parking lot
in a Massachusetts road,

you were scared I was torn,

'cause one line says that life
is gonna be easy for a while,

two lines and we’re not alone,

she had your eyes, she had my style,
she made you cry, she made me smile,
but only for a moment,
and then she was no more,

Sunday morning sermon
has a message for us both,

the sunlight glides across the church’s walls,

the preacher says that life
is not in the flesh but in our minds,

oh we are never going to be alone,

she had your eyes, she had my style,
she made you laugh, she made me smile,
but only for a moment,
becoming something more,

she’s running ‘round, she’s being wild,
she's got a laugh that carries for miles,
she's going to be a woman
that changes the world,
she’ll have your eyes, she’ll have my style,
she’ll make them cry, she’ll make them smile,
but only for a moment,
becoming something more,
