    "Happiness," is a concept record about love and loss. The record was written over two days by singer/songwriter Peyton Rodeffer. Soon, a band was formed to bring the record to life. Sean Jensen, Dagan Crews, and finally Andy Pillott came together to write the album based around Rodeffers folk songs. What came out of it was an indie, emo-rock record that deals with the ideas of divorce. Producer and engineer Tim Craven saw Wilderness Alive preform in Nashville, TN and took on the project. The record was tracked in Nashville, TN by Tim Craven and additional recording by Evan Brown.

about

The last track of a concept record about love and loss.

lyrics

When a girl looks you in the eyes
It is best to just lie
Tell her she is lovely
You can tell her she is smart
Even if their all not
Well I caught some eyes out on the floor
Drunk and stoned like every night since and before
Told you you could hold me but only if you want
I told you you could use me but only if you want
To birth me a little daughter to sit on dads knee
And teach my son to be a man, like I am
She just looked off for real long
Got up, put her cowgirl shoes on
Even as they are all leaving I'm still thinking of you
I wonder where you're sleeping, all the things you might do
I know someday I'll meet a woman and I'll forget all our plans
Where we fled Indiana, we never went home again
And building that home by the trees
Where you could birth me our little daughter, she would sit on my knee
We teach our son to be a man, like I am
But it died when you took off your ring
Wife I died when you took off your ring
Christ I have died since you both left me
I will pray in this life for better things
