about

The Timbre of Cedar Detroit, Michigan

Though its name evokes images of a land with towering trees, winding rivers, and vast lakes, The Timbre of Cedar is rooted in the urban forest of Metro Detroit. Cutting through the peripheral noise of sonic and existential monotony, the five-piece musical collective crafts a refreshing brand of anthemic indie-rock, inspired and instilled with a transparency of the soul and a yearning for grace. ... more

Track Name: Let's Go
Driving down the road
Don’t care where we go
Passing every exit
Going seventy four
Whoa, let’s go
Put away the phone
We’ll use a map
It might take a little longer
But what’s wrong with that
Whoa, let’s go
Honey, in our twenties
Can’t afford a flight
We’ll make it by the morning
If we drive all night
Whoa, let’s go
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss this moment
With you

Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
Live your life like you chose it
Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
This moment ain’t gonna own itself
So let’s go

Take my hand
Let’s hit the beach
Come wash away your worries
In the waves with me
Whoa, let’s go
Life is not a far off dream
We'll make it now together
When we dive in the deep
Whoa, let’s go
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss this moment
With you

Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
Live your life like you chose it
Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
This moment ain’t gonna own itself
So let’s go
Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
Live your life like you chose it
Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
This moment ain’t gonna own itself
So let’s go

Oh, the clouds may come
But they ain’t gonna stay
Oh We’ll chase the sun
Till it comes our way
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
So let’s go, so let’s go, so let’s go, so let’s go
Oh, the clouds may come
But they ain’t gonna stay
Oh We’ll chase the sun
Till it comes our way
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
So let’s go, so let’s go, so let’s go, so let’s go

Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
Live your life like you chose it
Every day’s a day older
No looking over your shoulder
Gotta keep moving forward
This moment ain’t gonna own itself
So let’s go
Track Name: Grow Your Roots
It's easier to chase a fantasy
Than do the hard work till you can see
I know it's hard child
With your insides running wild
I know you've always been the restless kind
It's hard for you stop and just unwind
I know it's hard child
But give it time give it time

Come on baby just grow where your roots are
Grow where your roots are
The grass is always greener on the other side yeah
You stick around you're gonna come alive

It's looking like you wanna run away
Are you trying to run to or from today
I know it's hard child with your insides running wild
If you wanna taste the sweeter fruit
You gotta let the rain wash the dirt in you
I know it's hard child
But give it time give it time

Come on baby just grow where your roots are
Grow where your roots are
The grass is always greener on the other side yeah
You stick around you're gonna come alive
Grow where your roots are
Grow where your roots are
The grass is always greener on the other side yeah
You stick around you're gonna come alive

Cause where you are there you are give it time
Cause where you are there you are give it time give it time
Cause where you are there you are give it time
Cause where you are there you are give it time give it time

Honey slow down for a moment
Bring your eyes back into focus
Take a look around and know that you're alive
Oh the future isn't flawless
And nostalgia is dishonest
But today is where life's got us so realize
There's just one life you've been given
Every day's a new beginning
Your work here isn't finished
Come alive come alive

Grow where your roots are
Grow where your roots are
The grass is always greener on the other side yeah
You stick around you're gonna come alive
Grow where your roots are
Grow where your roots are
The grass is always greener on the other side yeah
You stick around you're gonna come alive

Grow where your roots are
Grow where your roots are
The grass is always greener on the other side yeah
You stick around you're gonna come alive
Grow where your roots are
Grow where your roots are
The grass is always greener on the other side yeah
You stick around you're gonna come alive

Cause where you are there you are give it time
Cause where you are there you are give it time
Track Name: Sunny Side Up
I walk down the street and I see that the flowers are blooming
The sun's coming up from the ground to kiss the sky
Since today's a new day and my attitude I get to choose it
You know I've decided
I've made up my mind
And it's about time

Instead of wasting time thinking bout all the things that I don't have
I'm gonna change my mind and start thinking sunny side up
Instead of wasting time thinking bout all the things that could've been
I'm gonna make up my mind and start thinking sunny side up
Hey
Sunny side up
Sunny side up now
Sunny side up
I'm a start thinking

Today was a rough kind of day at the office
My co-workers were feeling a little blue
So I tried to cheer them up with some pancakes
And said here's something I'm trying today
If you'd like you can join me too
Everybody now

Instead of wasting time thinking bout all the things that I don't have
I'm gonna change my mind and start thinking sunny side up
Instead of wasting time thinking bout all the things that could've been
I'm gonna make up my mind and start thinking sunny side up
Hey
Sunny side up
Sunny side up now
Sunny side up
I'm a start thinking

Come on come on come on come on come on come on
Take the day back
Come on come on come on come on come on come on
Take the day back
Come on come on come on come on come on come on
Take the day back
Come on come on come on come on come on come on
Take the day back
Come on come on come on come on come on come on
Take the day back
Come on come on come on come on come on come on

Track Name: Gold
Before I thought that love was easy that it would simply stay
Before I wanted love to please me but it was all in vain
Selfishness can't take the fire so it burned up in the flames
I realized love's a sacrifice and it is worth the pain
We've been

Refined through the fire
Washed in the flood
Nothing can tarnish this pure kind of love
Our love is gold
Refined through the fire
Washed in the flood
Nothing can tarnish this pure kind of love
Our love is gold

With new eyes I see the light that love don't seek it's own
And if love is a kingdom babe I'm not on the throne
In our differences the beauty lives while we share the same name
In death to pride love comes alive and it is worth the pain
We've been

Refined through the fire
Washed in the flood
Nothing can tarnish this pure kind of love
Our love is gold
Refined through the fire
Washed in the flood
Nothing can tarnish this pure kind of love
Our love is gold

Our love is gold our love is gold
Gold gold gold
Our love is gold our love is gold
Gold gold gold
Our love is gold our love is gold
Gold gold gold
Our love is gold our love is gold
Gold gold gold
Our love is gold our love is gold
Gold gold gold
Yeah

Refined through the fire
Washed in the flood
Nothing can tarnish this pure kind of love
Our love is gold
Refined through the fire
Washed in the flood
Nothing can tarnish this pure kind of love
Our love is gold
Track Name: What If Love
What if love is the measure of a life well lived
What if love is the currency that I should spend
What if love forsakes itself to give to someone else
What if love is the measure of a moment
What if love is the measure of a life well lived
What if love is the currency that I should spend
What if love forsakes itself to give to someone else
What if love is the measure of a moment

What if love what if love what if love is the measure
Love what if love is the treasure we're all after
Love what if love what if love is the measure of a lifetime
I could have the whole world and have no peace of mind
What if love what if love is the measure of a lifetime

I could talk a fancy language have all the knowledge in the world
Check all the right boxes and give away my pearls
I can do good and give all I own until I don't have anything anymore
But if I don't have love mmm what was it for

What if love what if love what if love is the measure
Love what if love is the treasure we're all after
Love what if love what if love is the measure of a lifetime
I could have the whole world and have no peace of mind
What if love what if love is the measure of a lifetime

So come on now
Love takes itself to the back of the line
Stops counting the crimes and lays down it's pride
So come on now
Drop your weapons and the hate in your eyes
The fear that divides and let in the light
So come on now
Love takes itself to the back of the line
Stops counting the crimes and lays down it's pride
So come on now
Drop your weapons and the hate in your eyes
The fear that divides and let in the light

What if love what if love what if love is the measure
Love what if love is the treasure we're all after
Love what if love what if love is the measure of a lifetime
I could have the whole world and have no peace of mind
What if love what if love is the measure of a lifetime
I could have the whole world and never be satisfied
What if love what if love is the measure of a lifetime
Track Name: Flowers at Midnight
What do I say do I do
When all the fears inside me start to sound like the truth
Would you run would you leave if you knew
How many doubts in my mind still hold my point of view
Oh where'd you go I don't know are you here with me
Sometimes I feel alone in my quaking bones
Fear's my lonely company
Just when I decide I don't have the strength to fight

I can't believe you brought me flowers at midnight at midnight
You brought me flowers in my darkest night
When tears they flooded my eyes oh my eyes to my surprise
You brought me flowers at midnight

Dare to trust dare to grow dare to bloom
The tangled vines inside me start unwinding as I see your point of view
But what if I try if I choose
And you don't catch me when I'm falling and you're not there to heal my wounds
Oh please don't go don't leave me alone are you here with me
When I feel alone I remember hope and the promise that you'd never leave
Then I realize that you've already won this fight

I still believe you brought me flowers at midnight at midnight
You brought me flowers in my darkest night
When tears they flooded my eyes oh my eyes to my surprise
You brought me flowers at midnight
Flowers at midnight at midnight
You brought me flowers in my darkest night
When tears they flooded my eyes oh my eyes to my delight
You brought me flowers at midnight

Hues of yellow hues of gold
Pouring gently through my window
Just to wash my tired soul
Hold on tight oh don't let go
Cause the night is almost over
And there's joy you've yet to know

You're my sunrise
You're my sunshine
You're my ray of hope
God you lift my head
Give me a place to rest
You're my truest hope
