about

Music, at it's core, is about relationship and community. It brings people from all over the world together, to dance, to cry, remember, reflect; to worship, and to celebrate. It speaks to the heart and soul and it allows people who have never even met to share an experience of joy. Regardless of style, people are passionate about their music and it's an important part of their life.

Liquid Tension Music is founded by Junshuo Hou and Jiefu Wang, two young producers with a focus for making authentic pop music with fresh sound and class. They, along with a diverse group of people, from talented high school singers to veteran musicians and songwriters, who range in age from 14 to 67 years and are from varied backgrounds and walks of life, have all come together to make this album of original music with a mutual passion and love for their art.

We invite you to enjoy this album.

Track Name: Stephanie - Falling Into the Light
Sometimes it seems
I’m living in a dream;
in someone else’s head
but not my own.

Here I am,
locked in space and time;
but I know inside
there’s something more.

I’m looking up at the stars tonight.
I hear a whisper; it calls my name so clear that
I wanna reach out and touch the sky.
I feel the blood flowing through me.
I’m by myself but I’m not alone.
Falling into the light.

Traffic is hell;
a siren screaming by.
Somebody’s leaving earth.
What does it mean?

More I know,
less I understand.
Then it comes to me,
something divine.

I’m staring out at the setting sun.
I watch the colors bleed into one, so red.
I close my eyes and I see my face look up;
I hear someone calling to me.
I wanna get down on my knees.
Falling into the light.

All my illusions are breaking down.
Look in the mirror, I see someone I don’t know.
There’s nowhere to turn and run and hide.
There’s something happening to me.
I wanna get down on my knees.
Falling into the light.
Track Name: Reggie Hache - Gear
The world is a big machine.
We are the gears that move it forward.
Some are fine and others broken;
rotating rotating rotating rotating.

Tear it down;
we are the power;
to change the things that we don't like.
But we won't,
we're too damn busy
rotating rotating rotating for nothing.

pre-chorus 
Anyone ever bother to give a helping hand?
Things won't get better,
till we stop talking and do something. 

chorus
We are the people;
we can see and hear and touch.
Don't let the machine;
don't let the machine beat you down. 
We are the people;
we can change what hurts too much.
Don't let the machine;
don't let the machine kick you ‘round.

One day someone gets taken away.
Nobody cares when a part goes missing.
The broken gear just keeps on turning;
rotating rotating rotating for nothing.

repeat pre-chorus

repeat chorus
Track Name: Clammer the Kid - His Way
I thought I knew the answers to the questions I've been asking.
I thought I lived my life like destiny I could command it.
But what I didn't realize is that everything I own;
belongs to God above and my logic was all wrong.

He gave me air to breathe; He gave me eyes to see.
He gave me arms to write and He gave me lips to speak.
He granted me the skill to spread the gospel in His name,
and everything I write should be according to His way.

Sometimes I know I'll stray; my life ain’t predetermined;
but I should realize that all my words should be a sermon.
For what He has to say, and all that I believe in;
used to be confused, bigger picture now I'm seeing.

Took me, I was broken and now He fixed me up;
sacrificed His son, saved all of us through His blood.
Left no one behind, through His light is how I'll shine.
Had eyes for the world, God pulled me from the blind.

Let's say I live a hundred years so I got eighty left;
Gotta be the salt and light, this life is just a test.
I’mma pedal to the medal; elevate another level;
spread the truth and message loud so turn up your bass and treble.

Just recently I realized in me a revelation;
My music can be used to influence entire nations.
No more crabby like crustaceans, I’mma sizzle like I'm bacon.
Through rap I'll live my faith, and right now I'm so impatient.

I really can't hide the fire in my eyes;
for God I'm alive and it never will die.
It's about time I make you realize; I'm hungry, epic meal time.
Communicate through real rhymes, rap and religion combined;
Go hard for Jesus Christ like I'm running on some turbines.

And I will follow Him, like my name was Chris Tomlin.
The wind will try to tear me down but I will not bend.
I put my trust in Him, the God that loves me most;
And for that I'm truly blessed and I ain't afraid to boast.
He's watching over me ever since the day I birthed.
So now in honor of God, I put Him truly first.
I recognize His word as the righteous way to live.
No matter where I'm at, pull it out, nobody's biz,

I understand not everything goes according to my way;
But I put faith in God ‘cuz His miracle’s displayed.
Look at my life; lukewarm transition to a fire;
Straying from the world, only Him in my desire.
Track Name: Megan Burton - When You Fall
chorus
It only hurts when you have to feel;
and I know you don’t wanna feel nothing at all.
Everyone sees that you’re in too deep; it’s ok,
let your friend pick you up when you fall.

You and your beautiful imagination
kept taken you places you don’t need to be.
You climbed fences looking for something greener,
‘cause you couldn't see.

Now you’re just a desolate lonely island;
always working a scheme or something new.
But how are you ever gonna find yourself,
when you’re running from you.

So I keep on calling but you never pick up;
too busy trying just to get by.

You don’t want no one to see your pain,
but I know you’re never gonna make it alone.
Everyone knows that you went too far; its ok,
let your friend pick you up when you fall.

You know I love you and I wanna help you.
Don’t be afraid to swallow your pride.

repeat chorus

There ain't no weakness in asking help;
it’s so human to let somebody love you.
Don’t be afraid to be beautiful; it’s ok,
let your friend pick you up when you fall.
Track Name: David Bernstein - Walk Away
I can see from where I stand;
It's all a game you play.
You know it's what they say.
You give me all you've got inside;
and then you change your mind.
You walk away.
What is it of love we fear
that makes us disappear?

You take the high road; take it away.
Take the high road and get away.
Get away.

(You walk away)
You walk away.

Just when I think that I've been found;
You drop me to the ground.
It's such a lonely ride.
Someone should warn the next in line;
He'd better read the signs.

You take the high road; take it away.
Take the high road and get away.
Get away.
Get away.

(And you walk away)

I can see from where I stand;
the emptiness I face.
Never make me say goodbye;
It only makes me cry.

You take the high road; take it away.
I'll take the low road; crying in the rain.
You take the high road.
Take the high road and get away.
Get away.
Get away.

(You walk away)
You just get away.
(You walk away)
Take the high road and get away.
(You walk away)
You walk away.
(You walk away)
You just get away.
Track Name: Stephanie - Free
I’m taking over,
filled with dreams you would never believe.
I’m getting sober,
guns and diamonds so you never leave.
Blood pouring from my soul,
but I hear you’re in control.

I hear you calling;
saying you understand, but you don’t see.
I can’t stop falling;
holding on to everything I believe.
And everything you say
just cuts my heart away.

chorus
And I’m free,
yeah.
And I’m free;
And I do.
I still need you;
Oh, but I’m free.

You say I’m just a danger,
please don’t get too close to me.
You treat me like a stranger
‘cause you're losing me; you're losing me.
And I feel your beating heart,
even when we are apart.

repeat chorus

Free,
yeah.
And I’m free;
And I do.
I still need you.

But I’m free,
yeah.
And I’m free;
And I do.
I still need you;
Oh, but I’m free.
Track Name: Edrysse - I am Here
Look into this face; remember who you were.
Innocence destroyed, your body black and blue.
How you’d cry at night and dream about a place;
where happy children go to sing and laugh and play.

The lines around your eyes from all the lonely years;
of bitterness and grief; the brokenness of life left behind.
Those who took your trust and who hurt you for so long;
are in a distant past; you are here.

Look at all you’ve done; at what your life’s become.
The road you’ve had to walk; and still, you made it here.
You’re beautiful inside; you’re still the little girl
that you thought you’d lost. She wasn’t far away.

Forget about the past you carried for so long.
You never lost your faith
or forgot how to love once again.
It’s ok to cry; tears are there to help you heal.
You’re still that little girl. I am here.
Track Name: Marc LaFrance - Trip
You say
I will never succeed;
I say
I am trying anyway.
You say
Then we'll never meet again;
I say
I am going anyway.

chorus
The sun blinds my eyes.
Let the gravel tear my wounds.
Let heat drain my blood
and the dust cover my trail.
I'll have to try my best
no matter what's in front of me.
Stand on my feet.

You say
I will never succeed;
I say
I am trying anyway.
You say
Then we'll never meet again;
I say
I am going anyway.

repeat chorus

(Stand on your feet so you won't ever fall apart)

No one can tell
where I am now.
Sunrise sundown,
I keep on walking.
No one can tell
where I am now.
Sunrise sundown,
keep on walking.

repeat chorus

The sun blinds my eyes.
The gravel tears my wounds.
The heat drains my blood
and the dust covers my trail.
I'll have to try my best
no matter what's in front of me.
Stand on my feet.
Track Name: SeanZ - Betrayal
I can't believe
it's coming true.
I can tell from the look on your face
you know it.

So don't fool around
or try to pretend.
Your eyes are betraying you.

I know life isn't easy,
especially for you.
So many times 
I’ve heard your same old story.

chorus
The sky is raining;
someone is calling.
So run off without me
and the umbrella.
The sky is falling
while you are smiling.
So run off without me
and the umbrella.

I can't believe
it's coming true.
I can tell from the look on your face.

I know life isn't easy,
especially for you.
So many times
I’ve heard that same old story.

repeat chorus
Track Name: Jaralin - Survive
We fell out of love.
The tears that I cried
were just like a flood that would not subside.

Foolish in love,
I could not help but be in your arms.
But trust so unbreakable,
It shatters like glass
when we throw it down.

The lessons we learn
when we say goodbye;
we save for another day baby.
And that’s when I knew...

I will survive
and love again.
Time keeps on moving and that is the reason why
I’ll say goodbye.
I will survive.
Darling, say goodbye.

There was a time
when you were my life;
so young and distracted from what I needed to be.

But all of the miles
that could have lead me back to you;
have long since passed us by.
That was another time, another place.

You gotta know
I’m different now;
I’m not who I was.
I gotta go, it’s getting late.
Please try to understand...

That I will survive
and love again.
Time keeps on moving and that is the reason why
I’ll say goodbye.
I will survive.
Darling, say goodbye.

And say goodbye;
Oh goodbye.

I have survived
to love again.
Time keeps on moving and that is;
that is the reason why
I'll say goodbye.
I have survived.
Darling, say goodbye.
Track Name: Edrysse - Ready to Fly
I dive into my dreams; it’s hard to just stand still.
Can’t see the details of how or when,
but I know one day I will.

‘Cause I’m just getting started; who will I be?
Making my way, it won’t be easy.
But still, I’ve got to be me.

My life is an open book and I want to make history.

chorus
Feel the summer sun;
the wind is at my back;
the world is at my feet.
I’m ready to fly, ready to fly.
Say goodbye to yesterdays gone by;
the moment has arrived.
And I am ready to fly, ready to fly.

I’ll follow my heart and find what must be seen.
Mapping ideas that have no borders
and go where I’ve never been.
I’ll weigh all my choices; remember good advice;
look for the best in everyone
and see the truth with open eyes.

My life is an open book and I want to make history.

repeat chorus

My life is an open book and I want to make history.

I’m gonna follow my heart and dive into my dreams.

repeat chorus x2

I dive into my dreams, it’s hard to just stand still.
Can’t see the details of how or when, but I know one day I will.
Track Name: Stephanie - Don't You Want to Dance
I like the sound;
I like the rush;
I like the lights;
I like this very much.
I like the people;
it has began.
I like the power
when we all move as one.

I like the mist;
I like the vibe;
I like the noise;
I like to feel alive.
I like the sparkle;
I like the friends;
I like the love
and it never has to end.

pre-chorus
Music in the air
and the kick of a drum as one.
Whoever you are,
wherever you’re from,
as one.

chorus
I want; you want
everyone to get together.
We’re gonna dance ‘cause it feels all right.
I want; you want
everyone to live forever.
We’re gonna dance ‘cause tonight’s the night.

bridge
Do-do-do, do-do-do; Don’t you want to dance?
Do-do-do, do-do-do; Don’t you want to; don't you want to?
Do-do-do, do-do-do; Don’t you want to dance?
Dance. Dance.

repeat pre-chorus

repeat chorus

(Whoever you are)
(Wherever you’re from)

Track Name: Jaralin - Everyone Knows
I refuse to apologize;
I have the right to feel the way I do.
I know in life there are no guarantees;
but how could I have known what you would do?

So let the rain fall down on me
and wash away the emptiness that used to be
you and me.

You had my soul;
You had my everything.
But you were blinded to your own demise.
I’m not ashamed of all I did for you.
The tables now have turned; it’s no surprise.

The winds of change rush over me,
but in the end, the love I gave is what matters most.
It matters most.

chorus
And everyone knows;
everyone knows
I’m not to blame.
Everyone knows;
I took the blows
again and again.
And that’s how it goes;
the truth it will show
you bare the shame.
Everyone knows, everyone knows,
everyone knows.

I will choose to let you go,
remembering the better part of you.
I hope you find
what you’re looking for.
And maybe one day you might see the truth;
to stop the pain and find a way to realize
that you can’t save yourself this time.
No, not this time.

repeat chorus

And everyone knows;
everyone knows
I’m not to blame.
Everyone knows;
I took the blows
again and again.
And that’s how it goes;
the truth it will show
love’s not a game.
Everyone knows, everyone knows,
everyone knows.

I refuse to apologize.
Track Name: James Lawrence - I Let Go
I let go;
I let go of you today.
Your smile, your face,
and those eyes that said you’d stay.

I let go;
I let go. I know I should
give up, move on.
How could I know you would?

The sweet caress of your touch;
the moonlight on your skin so warm;
are memories dead and buried;
marked by your heart of stone.
I let go...

I let go;
I let go of you for good.
I dried my tears;
grabbed the thorns and left the rose.

I let go. I let go.
Let go...
Let go...
Track Name: Clammer the Kid, Edrysse, Megan Burton - Slip Away
The curtains dropped; the crowd is gone.
In a room full of people with a sense you don’t belong.
You had a lot of talent; you had a lot of dreams;
but then you gave it all up, fell apart at the seams.
Blinded by temptations; misguided by frustrations;
dreams took so long, you became so impatient.
Impossible is nothing but for you it seemed impossible.
What you had desired now, opposite of invaluable.

Do you remember all the possibilities
that your dreams could be a reality?
But time is always such an earnest labourer.
Now you can’t get back all the moments that slipped away.

In a world of entertainment and foolish fantasies,
it’s easy to lose sight of what you once used to believe.
An ipod, new clothing, a car on TV;
a dream with straight focus, now I cannot see.
Misguided by suburban ways of living, we grew used to.
When pursuing a dream gets hard, we turn and go on youtube.
Too many things to turn to, if things ever do fall through.
But dreams fail, we don’t care, those things we won’t go pursue.

Do you remember all the possibilities
that your dreams could be a reality?
But time is always such an earnest labourer.
No, you won’t get back all the moments that slipped away.

Looking back at yourself in about twenty years;
inner demons took control and feasted off your fears.
Now you’re on your grind through the week in the cubical,
struggling to make ends meet when you could have been so musical.
Jade tinted glasses and brain washed in headphones;
diluted your passion, now you realized you’re wrong.
Too late to change facts as your yearn for something new.
That one standing on stage with the mic could have been you.

Learn to be quiet, in the clatter and the noise.
Never let the world try and steal your joy.
Remember time is just an earnest labourer
and you won’t get back what has slipped away.

Do you remember all the possibilities
that your dreams could be a reality?
But time is always such an earnest labourer
and you won’t get back all the moments that slip away.
Track Name: Godwin Barton - Who Can This Be
I was lying in the trenches, beaten by the angry waves of life.
I was crushed in heart and spirit, burdened by life’s torturous strife.
No one was my friend; darkness ensured this to the end.
As only unending pain, it brought again and again.

chorus
Well who can this be? He who had the courage to rescue me.
Oh darkness; oh darkness; it could not stand.
In the presence; in the presence of great light.

If you think that you’re hopeless with no help to be found;
you’ve been beaten; you’ve been battered and there’s blood all around.
You cry and you pray, looking for the light of day.
Yet in this deathly darkness, you only seem to stay.

repeat chorus

The pain that you feel is giving way to new birth.
The tears that you’ve cried are now cleansing your earth.
Your great strength within now shall arise as a fire;
as on the wings of eagles you’ll soar higher and higher.

repeat chorus

It did retreat, it did surrender; and it gave up the fight.
It did retreat, it did surrender; and it gave up the fight.
Oh darkness, oh darkness; it could not stand.
In the presence; in the presence of great light.

Well who can this be?
Who can this be?
Track Name: Scott Perrie - Beautiful Love
When I was young, I lost someone.
I grew up in fear and sorrow,
so I gave up on tomorrow;
built a heart of stone that would not let you in.

And then one day, from so far away,
you filled the space that lay between us;
closed the distance, made it seamless;
showed me blessing through forgiveness
and my stone walls turned to sand.

I will not forget how your love for me won’t relent;
how you saved me by your grace
with your beautiful love; beautiful love.

And now, there’s a brand new day.
I don’t have to be afraid.
I am not a lonely pilgrim to some hopeless destination
‘cause I’ve got my invitation.
There’s a table set for me.

I will not forget how your love for me won’t relent.
You have saved me from myself.
It’s a beautiful love; a beautiful love;
a beautiful love; beautiful love.

The sun, moon and stars above; they sing of your endless love.
And you know me by my name.
What a beautiful love; a beautiful love.
It’s a beautiful love; a beautiful love.

You know me by my name;
I don’t have to be afraid.
