Seven Pedals Austin, Texas

Seven Pedals, Austin’s very own harp duo, formed during a break from daily harp practice when Meredith (lead harp) and Molly (lead vocals) decided to step away from the classical scene. After adding Sam (cello) to the group, the group wrote and recorded their debut album, "The Weight of Water." ... more

Track Name: Let That Take Hold
The weight of water in the air is oppressive.
Apathy sets in;
Apathy takes hold.

I miss you.
Why do you love me?

Whisper to my heart, to my soul, to me
That you love me,
And let that take hold.
Track Name: Past Mistakes
When will I be forgiven for past mistakes?
When will I be given a fresh page?

Look at me. You see all that I've done wrong.
But look at me. You forget that I am young.

When will I be forgiven for past mistakes?
When will I be given a fresh page?

When will I be forgiven for past mistakes?
When will I be given a fresh page?

Forgive me. Forgive and forget.
Forgive me. Don't give me your old regrets.

When will I be forgiven for past mistakes?
When will I be given a fresh page? (x4)
Track Name: A Good Man
I’m wearing your grandmother’s watch
I imagine you’re in class too
Perhaps you’re thinking of my curly hair
I’m singing “I Only Wear Blue.”

I’m missing you worse each damn day
You’re hidden throughout this damn town
Every damn place that reminds me
Kinda hope this is bringing you down

Kinda hope that you can’t move on
It’s selfish; I can’t make myself mind
I want us both hurting and falling down hard
Both helplessly gazing behind

I drive by your house every chance that I get
I slow down and wish from the street
Wish all the shit weren’t the shit that it is
Days and nights I wish we could repeat

This is me
I am here
This is now
We shared space
We share time, we share time

Two hearts on two thin lines
That cross somewhere behind us (2x)

You’re a good man, I’ve known it for years.
I pray, and I pray, and I pray
And pray that you know it like I do
I pray, and I pray, and I pray

I know what I want, and I know what’s right
I don’t guess I know you anymore
Are you all alone like I’m feeling alone?
Are you dying like I am to go home?

You’re a good man, I’ve known it for years.
I pray, and I pray, and I pray
Track Name: Aggressive Treatment
In a place where you say goodbye
Nobody wants to say die

All of the waiting tears families apart
Hoping to harvest hearts

Survival only means one year
The word we all die to hear

The shows are lies
Patients die
There's no cure for death these days

Humans leave
Without finding peace
Nobody tells them not to treat

In a place where you often goodbye
Nobody wants to say die

All of the waiting tears families apart
Hoping to harvest hearts


We all have to suffer
We all have a fate
Go forth and alleviate

Relax, release, and be at peace
In a place where you say goodbye

All of the waiting tears families apart
Hoping to harvest hearts
Track Name: Bring Me Out of Myself
I was running down Lamar toward Enfield
Listening to Bon Iver
It was an Austin kind of morning all inside me
Potential waiting in the air

Because the world's been weighing heavy on my shoulders
And my sins weighing heavy on my heart
So heavy that it makes it impossible to stay awake
And face the battles on the rampart

So I lean and rely and depend on you
And I trust that you will bring out of myself

In the summer time campus feels deserted
And the heat would kill a lesser man
The loneliness sneaks into my subconscious
Once again it's getting hard to stand

Because the world's been weighing heavy on my shoulders
And my sins weighing heavy on my heart
So heavy that it makes it impossible to stay awake
And face the battles on the rampart

So I lean and rely and depend on you
And I trust that you will bring me out of myself

Oh ask me how I reconcile
Cynicism and faith (2x)
Or where I am and where I'm going (2x)

So I lean and rely and depend on you
And I trust that you will bring me out of myself (2x)
Track Name: Waiting
I'm waiting
Waiting for him to go waiting to say goodbye
I'm waiting
I'm sitting
And it's hard I don't want, to but I'm sitting

I was queen of this bed, but it's cold now and lonely
Don't move, don't move, don't move on
I'm waiting

I'm sitting, people come and they go
I'm sitting
I'm waiting,
and they're moving like water, but I'm waiting

I was queen of this bed, but it's cold now and lonely
Don't move, don't move, don't move on
I'm waiting

I'm waiting
I don't know when your leaving, but I'm waiting

I was queen of this bed, but I'm cold now and lonely
Don't move, don't move, don't move
Track Name: Kinsolving
Live here,
Learn here,
Eat, and
Rest here.

No one laughs alone;
No one cries alone.

Share here,
Grow here,
Hold on, and
Rest here.

No one laughs alone;
No one cries alone.

An indelible mark
On all of our hearts--
You've all left your mark
On my heart.
Track Name: Long Way to Go
It feels like Hell's broke loose
All over my head and hands.
You're never overwhelmed
Supplying my growing demands.
I'm feeling lonely, lonely;
Wish I'd never learned your name.

We've come a long way,
There’s still a long way to go.

I can't take here,
Can't take now--
Take my broken self

I can’t take day,
Can’t take night--
Take my broken self

Can’t take myself,
Take myself,
Take my broken self.

It feels like Hell's broke loose
All over my head and hands.
You're never overwhelmed
Supplying my growing demands.
I'm feeling lonely, lonely;
Wish I'd never learned your name.
Track Name: Vessels
I am a round vessel—
Empty, save for
Thin coat of anger
Covering inside

Covering inside
And drops of
Sadness, self-loathing
Pooling in the bottom.

I need faith, light me,
Grace, clean me
Love, fill me. (4x)

I feel like a vessel of poison.
I want to be for drinking.
Track Name: Rooftop at Sunset
Sit on your rooftop
Survey our domain
All six thousand miles
Of what we've claimed

Right now I'm so lonesome
Oh I just might cry.
You bring home the money,
But I want you're time.

You take it slow, but I can't hesitate.
What is our fate?
We cannot know in summer's crawl
Waiting for fall,
For the future.

All five years to date,
I would not change
A single thing.

I'm out of my mind,
You take your time.
I'm waiting by
Enjoying the ride. (3x)
