about

The mission of our EP is to reach the hearts of anyone willing to listen.

We named this EP "Pages" in reference to the countless pages we've used up writing our 2 a.m thoughts, scribbling our emotion into stories which then became the songs that make up Painting Promises.
The melodic guitar/bass work derives from raw lucid emotion, Transposing the inner most of feelings to chords and notes to speak in a language only hearts can fluently understand.
The drum work is powerful, and chaotic at times. It speaks as a loud statement of a steady beat found in the madness of life. With each measure hitting solid and pronounced, it is a symbol to the integrity we hold in our lives. .

Track Name: Pretty Faces & Ugly Intentions
Maybe if you paid attention
you could learn a thing or two
cause' everywhere I go
I meet someone just like you
you tell me you're not ordinary
but your song is overplayed
don't you go, ignite this fire
cause i'm not afraid
(to burn every bridge we've made)

Get up get up
get up they need you
what it what if
what if they see you

Maybe it doesn't mean a thing to me
maybe i can't stand the memories
maybe i don't need your love
this is no tragedy
maybe you'll burn with your maleficent sympathy

maybe if my heart beats fast enough
I can slow down time
and try to figure out
where the next bullets's coming from
(and call you mine)
If you get me in the right spot
you can see
how much it hurts me
to not feel a thing
I cant feel a thing

Its about time i let you go
Hit me up again and ill say no
Track Name: Dear Gloria
A story about a shot in the dark.
A man and woman with bright red spark
From the beginning.
She knew what she was giving.
It was nothing but her lonely heart

Girl I wish there was a way.
For me to take away the pain
But you know
I can't stay


I promised her everything would be okay
But with grim eyes she'd see me
As I looked away
Oh father, please tell me now
What should I do
When these drugs start to fade
(She's still too young for you)
Please don't take her with you
Take my life in her place


Girl I wish there was a way.
For me to take away the pain
But you know
I can't stay

Now their eyes all, but grey
Slowly close and pray
Please take her with you
It's a slim chance she'll make it through
It's a slim chance, she'll make it

You Can't make me let go of this hope.
There's a chance i'm willing to take.
Father God oh i beg won't you please
save this life that you're willing to take.

She will make it through.


Girl I wish there was a way.
For me to take away the pain
But you know
I can't stay
Track Name: Always
I can't seem to believe anything anymore
(I can hardly feel & I can't tell what's real anymore)
why can't things go back to the way they were before
(where did my years go do I still have time)
just know its a shame
it ended this way

always remember
(I can't tell; Is this real)
don't ever forget
where you came from
where you've been
always remember
(I can't tell; Is this real)
don't ever forget
don't ever forget my name

I will slip away if you for get my name.
sooner or later were all bound to slip away
but we wont ever compromise
no we wont leave emotions at bay
i recall telling you to stay away
is it my time now i feel so close
can you tell me why i needed you the most
to make this feel real

just know its a shame
it ended this way

always remember
(I can't tell; Is this real)
don't ever forget
where you came from
where you've been
always remember
(I can't tell; Is this real)
don't ever forget
don't ever forget my name

I can hardly tell what's real anymore
& I can hardly even feel anymore
so if you're asking me for reality
than I will look at you and say It's me..
It's me.

It's a shame (we couldn't do this together)
it's a shame. (nothing lasts forever)
It's a shame. ( we didn't do this together)
I told you it's a shame. ( we didn't last forever)


always remember
(I can't tell; Is this real)
don't ever forget
where you came from
where you've been
always remember
(I can't tell; Is this real)
don't ever forget
don't ever forget my name


I'm not the one to blame
no, i should've known by now time won't change.
I'm not the one to blame.
no, I should've known you won't change.
Track Name: Jane Place
It feels like I repeat myself
Over and over again
When will this all end?

I've tried so hard.
For you to see
Everything we could be


Why do I long for you?
Why can't I sleep?
Wasn't moving away the only way
To hear you speak
Speak to me again.


I fight them, but still they strike back
The shadows are trying to bring me down.
but I wont let them take everything that is mine

You're my reason


Why do I long for you?
Why can't I sleep?
Wasn't moving away the only way
To hear you speak
Speak to me again.


The silence is bringing me down.
The valley will echo, but nothing will sound
Feelings of sorrow.
Still nothing is new
If I close my eyes will I still see you

Where you ever really there?
Tell me why and tell me where!
to go from here

(Si tan solo supieras cuanto te necesito~If you only knew how much I need you)
