about

Mountain Lions Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The Mountain Lions debut is the culmination of 5 years of songwriting and story-telling and the brain child of songwriter Steven Diaz. "I wanted to expose honest emotions with these songs. Some of them have to do with death, some songs focus on internal struggles, and some are simply descriptions of beautiful moments that we all may have experienced." ... more

Track Name: Caroline
Let's sail tonight in my seventh sea and see how far our hands can reach by pulling clouds out of the sky. We'll swim among the fishing swells, pick fights with all the white sea gulls. Our skin will turn a golden brown.

Oh sweet Caroline, my love. Please take my hand and run away with me.

Let's search beneath our humble deck for signs of past shipwrecks, now aged with sleep they're beautiful. We'll signal for a rescue team. Before they come, we'll fall asleep. We'll dream a timeless memory.

Oh sweet Caroline, my love. Please take my hand and run away with me.

When all the clouds fill with rain we'll get away in our aeroplane. I'll lean in close and whisper your name...

Oh sweet Caroline, my love, please take my hand and run away with me.

Oh sweet Caroline, take my hand and run away with me.

Lets sail tonight in my seventh sea and see how far our hands can reach by putting stars into the night.
Track Name: Dream, Sweet Dream
Stables filled with mares
Casting weary stares
Searching for your eyes
As they’re led outside

The world will fall asleep
And I will meet and greet
Your former loves
With a common peace

An old, broken bicycle
A cold, midnight rainfall
The sun will ask the wind to stay
But you won’t care either way

The world will fall asleep
And I will meet and greet
Your former loves
With a common peace

But a carriage won’t move without its wheels
And the strongest of men still wear shields
We fight to fit in your living rooms
But what if I didn’t care?

But a carriage won’t move without its wheels
And the strongest of men still wear shields
We fight to fit in your living rooms
But what if I didn’t care?
We fight to fit in your living rooms
But what if I didn’t care?
We fight to fit in your living rooms
But what if I didn’t care?
Track Name: Car Wreck
Dreaming of sleeping, of floating on the waves. I'm crashing, they're laughing. Im pouring out through my veins.

Don't expect the rain to fall on you when you're sad, 'cuz it doesn't work like that. No, it's better left unasked for. Don't assume the moon will crawl out of the hills so soon. Yeah, she's pretty when she moves, but it's still the afternoon.

Oh

Step out onto the stage. The microphone looks the other way, but whispers sweet in your ear the song that everyone wants to hear.

Don't expect the rain to fall on you when you're sad, 'cuz it doesn't work like that. No, it's better left unasked for. Don't assume the moon will crawl out of the hills so soon. Yeah, she's pretty when she moves, but it's still the afternoon.

At the end of the day, when you mean what you say.
Take it easy, you'll be fine. 'Cuz after all we've got time.

Don't expect the rain to fall on you when you're sad, 'cuz it doesn't work like that. No, it's better left unasked for. Don't assume the moon will crawl out of the hills so soon. Yeah, she's pretty when she moves, but she's not the one for you. Don't count on the wind to push you further down the road, 'cuz it's fickle and you know it. So why don't you just show it. Don't expect the sun to shine its love just on you, 'cuz the world needs sunshine too. Could we share the afternoon?

Oh.
Track Name: A Thousand Seas
Like a portrait aged and peeling
The fine dust obstructs my breathing
On a treadmill gently spinning
I only tire of always driving

On and on…

Simply put I’ve been misleading
My heart into thinking
That doubt can be conquered
This perhaps, isn’t true

On and on…

Take this torch from me, I can’t run a minute longer
I’ve swam a thousand seas, but I can’t be getting stronger
It must be me

As a child I can remember
Spinning on a tire swing
Thinking, “My world is just a big blur”
How can I be sure?

Take this torch from me, I can’t run a minute longer
I’ve swam a thousand seas, but I can’t be getting stronger

Please take this grief form me, I won’t weep a minute longer
I’ve run a thousand miles. will I ever get stronger?
Help my unbelief

Our sunken hearts sing softly
As we put him in the ground
I used to see his face everyday
Now his smile gently fades

Take this torch from me, I cant run a minute longer
I’ve swam a thousand miles, but I can’t be getting stronger.
Lord, help my unbelief
Track Name: At The Sunset
Fly like a skipping stone
Sing like a telephone
We won’t cut a record or pilot a jet
But I don’t think it’s our time is just yet

Scream like a thunderstorm
Yell like a car horn
And each time it gets messy we’ll catch the debris
And send it off to sea

Sail away on a ship keep a death of a grip
Count the days ‘til you make it ashore
And I’ll be singing my tune flying in my balloon
‘Til the ocean and sky finally meet

Glow like a firefly, rise like the morning tide.
I don't care what they'll say or know what you've heard, but I know this is too good for words

Blush like the dying leaves, age like a deep, deep sleep
Where ever you wake up the Earth is spinning so just rest your head in the wind

Sail away on a ship keep a death of a grip
Count the days ‘til you make it ashore
And I’ll be singing my tune flying in my balloon
‘Til the ocean and sky finally meet

Work like a beating drum
Wheeze like the mile run
And despite all the hardship we’ll spit in our boots
And say we’ve got nothing to loose

Burn like a daydream, live like you're really free
In the midst of the fire I will find a peace and I'll keep it 'til the day I leave.

Sail away on a ship keep a death of a grip
Count the days ‘til you make it ashore
And I’ll be singing my tune flying in my balloon
‘Til the ocean and sky finally meet
And I’ll be singing my tune flying in my balloon
‘Til the ocean and sky finally meet
Track Name: Love Song From A Stranger
I stopped by to say that I was so naive when I met you. But I've aged a year or two since the last time that I talked to you.

There's a place that we can go. A place that no one else will know and we can fly high above the atmosphere until everything becomes more clear

I just want to say that I am thankful for the times you tried to love me, but I didn't let you did I?

There's this place I go, a place I tried not to show. But since I've flown high above the atmosphere, now everything is a little more clear.

Come and lend a bitter ear, wont you dear, come and wipe away those tears. No this isn't something new, but I just called to say, "I love you".

And "There's a place that we can go and watch the world around us slow and hear the angels sing in the atmosphere while we figure out what it means to be down here and everything becomes more clear."
Track Name: When I'm Gone
seventeen: the beginning of everything good. Second guess the question and leave misunderstood

We'll move on, but don't forget me when I'm gone.
We'll move on, but love me truly when I'm gone.

twenty-three, and it's snowing outside my window. I am squinting through oceans that froze from head to toe.

We'll move on, but don't forget me when I'm gone.
We'll move on, but love me truly when I'm gone.

And isn't Love what we should be living for? The Love I know, it has no way of keeping score.

We'll move on
We'll move on
The dawn will come
The world turns on

We'll move on, but don't forget me when I'm gone.
We'll move on, but love me truly when I'm gone.
We'll move on, but love me truly when I'm gone.
We'll move on, but love me truly when I'm gone.
Track Name: From Now On
In the Winter, we were waiting for the icicles to melt.
By the Springtime, it was raining and the trees were turning green.
In the Summer, we were dancing in the comfort of the shade.
By the autumn, leaves where changing, but I hope you will stay the same.

And we'll sing...
Yeah, we'll sing...

Yeah, we'll sing, "From now on everything will change. From now on we will lead the way. From now on everything will change, but you are safe with me."

In the South, we met a stranger who fed us lies of things to come.
On the West Coast, we found children playing in the streets with guns.
In the North, our beds were frozen. We lay awake counting the stars.
To the East, the Sun was rising and time stood still just for us.

So we sang...
Yeah, we sang...

Yeah we sang, "From now on everything will change. From now on we will lead the way. From now on everything will change, but you are safe with me."

From now on everything will change. From now on we will lead the way. From now on everything will change, but you are safe with me
Track Name: Romeo
A cosmic collision or a babbling brook
A salesman or shepherd, alive but mute
A marriage of true lovers or of tasteful logic
Your scheming floats heavy in the air

A simpleton sharing his prized possession
If Romeo loved Juliet…

Then why did he lie to save himself?
Or was he planning to dance in hell
To the sound of grinding teeth
And pretend the devil’s not around

A farewell procession or a teary-eyed kiss
A years worth of labor or blind credit
The first snowy winter I’ve seen in years
Like a total forgiveness that gathers here

If scavengers discovered they had food allergies
Would the world decompose growing sacred and free?
Your still subtle voice time and time again
Shakes my frame like a kite in the wind

In this place, I am
A simpleton sharing his prized possession
If Romeo loved Juliet…

Then why did he lie to save himself?
Or was he planning to dance in hell
To the sound of grinding teeth
And pretend the devil’s not around
Track Name: Set For Sinking
House on a lake, I sat down beside you
But you weren’t awake, sleeping in silence
The peace melts away in the afternoon heat
And your nightmare carried you ready to fight

I am thinking,
That these woods are set for sinking
Like an illness you feign
The north wind brings forth rain

The candles you light, won’t last the winter
Your cursing your sight, reaching for sunlight
The calendar year left you pacing on the porch
Now a cold wind blows your front door back and forth

We watched you wearied eyed
I was the thorn in your hand

We watched you wearied eyed
I was the thorn in your hand

I am thinking,
That these woods are set for sinking
