A light, but driving song, continuously marching the listener against the hand of fate that guides our lives.

Whitherward:
Ashley Norton - acoustic guitar, vocals
Edward Williams - acoustic guitar, vocals, drum programming, organ

with:
Stephanie Groot - violin
Patrick Hershey - bass

Seasons change
And so have I
And so have you
I wonder why
The hand of fate
Deigns to act
Upon the meek
A proven fact

That it takes more courage to love
Like that
Yeah it takes more courage to love
Like that

Spin the wheel
Twist the dial
Cozy up
For a little while
The crying game
Is fun to watch
While the hand of fate
Cuts a swath

Through the memories and the lies
And the color coded smiles
That keep us guessing day after day
What a blissful, stunning dream
That cuts right through the gleam
Within your eyes
Where I am safe

But it takes more courage to love
Like that
Yeah it takes more courage to love
Like that
And it takes more courage to love
When the hand of fate above
Moves the pieces before you begin

Painted pictures
Cryptic signs
Form the threads
Of a life
True conviction
Stated plain
Guides the sightless
Through the pain

That it takes more courage to love
Like that
Yeah it takes more courage to love
Like that
And it takes more courage to love
When the hand of fate above
Moves the pieces before you begin
And it takes more courage to love
When the hand of fate above
Moves the pieces before you begin
Song Comments

Eve's Hooky Cookie
another totally original song by this great duo. Nice harmonies and a really interesting solo in the middle. It takes more courage to love like that.


Light My Fire
happenin' vocal sparks, tasty production touches w keys, violin, lyrical flow that leaps and shimmies, and shines, rare grooviness, kudos...


Itso's Earworms
A catchy and frisky folk-pop song - just the way I like them. The arrangement (instrumentation, harmonies, etc.) is clever and complex, yet the song doesn't sound overproduced. Very well done.


Cincy Cat's Top 40
Great harmonies and melodies here, a wonderful folk song by talented artists.


Groovy and 60's Style
Hey Edward and Ashley; my bad, my real, real bad. Finally one of you groovy indie bands came to my hometown of Omaha (one of the nation's leading indie music scenes) and I dropped the ball and spaced off coming to see you. :-( I wasn't paying proper attention and by the time Itso reminded me, it was the day of, and it was too late to be spontaneous on my part. Sorry! Was I afraid they would not let me into the young people's venue? Was I afraid of you Ashley after watching The Dragon? Will it make it up to you if I add some more Whitherward tunes in my next addition session? Nonetheless I like you well enough for you to be here, right?
