This song is about the woman who saved Reid's life


I will languish by the sea
Standing here and waiting patiently now
Your skin it always seems to shine
Shimmering at night just like oceans

Sulking through the happy days
The time is right and I will self-destruct now
Crowds will gather in the rain
To see the trouble
But they wont see angels

Sticks and stones will break my bones
But words will leave me all alone
Oh I could change
Oh I could change
I swear
Oh I know it’s hard say
Out love is not a kiss away
If you could wait
If you could wait my dear
But only if you dare

Now I’m looking for a way
To find the light at the end of tunnels
Silver linings dissipate
Clouds are opening
To keep me with you.


from Conquistadors, released February 19, 2015
