about

Each Passing Day was a band fronted by Loren Radis in the year 2008. In the far-flung future of 2011 (what you refer to as "current day"), Loren Radis continues to make music under his own name. Check out his music at lorenradis.bandcamp.com if you're interested in hearing the rest of the story!

Each Passing Day's debut album Welcome Home - with a sound that resembles Iron and Wine, Damien Rice, and Death Cab for Cutie - explores relationships, both the bliss and the pain.

Track Name: Mr. Nice Guy
you can say whatever you want
you can walk all over me
for any reason you can blow me off
you can pinch me until i bleed
still gonna be there when you call
still gonna catch you if you fall


still gonna be the one who listens, when you're cryin' on the phone
still gonna buy you little presents, when i'm out away from home
still gonna watch your dumb tv shows, so you don't have to watch alone
still gonna be the one who loves you, if you want me to be
if you want me to be

you don't have to listen to me
you don't have to return my calls
you don't need to do anything for me
all you gotta do is call

and i'll be right there by your side
even if you're just using me for a free ride

still gonna be the one who listens, when you're cryin' on the phone
still gonna buy you little presents, when i'm out away from home
still gonna watch your dumb tv shows, so you don't have to watch alone
still gonna be the one who loves you, if you want me to be
if you want me to be


i don't know why, guess i'm mr. nice guy
i've tried not to be oh god knows i've tried
but you can hurt me, ignore me, leave me, you can shoot me down
still you know that i will be around

still gonna be the one who listens, when you're cryin' on the phone
still gonna buy you little presents, when i'm out away from home
still gonna watch your dumb tv shows, so you don't have to watch alone
still gonna be the one who loves you, if you want me to be
still gonna be the one who loves you
i'll always be the one who loves you...
Track Name: Homesick
plain white t-shirts on the floor
it's hard to tell which is mine and which is yours
i don't know what you want me to say
i can only take this day by day
day by day

i can kiss you where it hurts
will that help or only make it worse?
your voice crackles on the telephone
when i hear it it feels like comin' home
comin' home

home is when i'm by your side
home is drownin' in your eyes
home is in each tender kiss
when you're away, i'm the one...
who's home sick...

withered petals on the dash
i wonder how i fell so far fast
in memory i'll keep this rose
and wait for the day when you'll be comin' home

comin' home

home is when i'm by your side
home is drownin' in your eyes
home is in each tender kiss
when you're away, i'm the one...
who's home sick...

home is when i'm by your side
home is drownin' in your eyes
home is in each tender kiss
when you're away, i'm the one...
i'm the one...
who's home sick...
Track Name: All To Say
How to say to you
What I wanted to
If you only knew
How much you mean to me

You're my everything
You make my heart sing
That's what your love brings to

What can I do, what can I say
To show you are perfect in every way
These words are simple but they are true
All to say I love you

Through the months and years
With smiles and with tears
I hope it seems clear
How much you mean to me

Sleeping through the night
Holding you so tight
I know it feels right to me

What can I do, what can I say
To show you are perfect in every way
These words are simple but they are true
All to say I love you

How to say to you
What I wanted to
If you only knew
How much you mean to me
Track Name: Sleep
at work i fell asleep and dreamed i was at home
it was beautiful
last night in my sleep, i dreamt you were here with me
you were so...beautiful
i fell asleep, won't you wake me up?
i fell down, won't you pick me up?

sitting all alone, staring at the phone
waitin' for your call
what if you don't come, what if you don't care?
at all.....
at all.....

i fell asleep, won't you wake me up?
you fell down, i can't pick you up...

well you came by after all, you built me up
so i could take the fall
but tonight as i sleep, i'll dream you're here with me
it'll be...beautiful

i fell asleep, please don't wake me up
'cuz in my dreams, i can still feel loved
i fell down, please don't pick me up
'cuz if i lay here, on this cold ground...
i'll never have to fall

last night in my sleep, i dreamt you were here with me
you were so...beautiful
Track Name: Waiting
it's friday night in a city that can only
be described as a poor man's santa barabara
it's cold outside but i've got my coat
to ward off the chill as we walk i'll hold you close

and i've been waitin for someone to save me
i've been waitin for you

it's friday night and my room is bathed in
the familiar blue glow of my tv set
it's a little cold but i'll be fine
as i sit and wonder where you are tonight

are you waiting somewhere just for me to call your name?
well i've been waiting patiently for you to do the same
and now i'm trying with everything i am just to pretend
that i don't miss you...

but i've been waitin for someone to save me
i've been waiting for you
and i've been praying that you won't forget me
i'm still waiting for you

but i can't wait forever
yeah i can wait forever
don't make me wait forever
i'll try to wait forever

i'm still waiting for someone to save me
i'm still waiting for you
and when you're ready for someone to save you
i'll be here waiting for you, for you
for you, for you
for you, for you
for you, for you
for you, for you
for you

i'm still waiting...
Track Name: Look To You
As I go about my day
From one thing to the next
All I want is to be the guy
That I've come to expect

I see all that I've become
I know I could do more
I'm scared I won't come to fulfill
What God has planned me for

When I close my eyes, I want you here with me
I want to know, That you're pleased with what you see
So fill my heart with your refreshing peace
Tonight that's how I want to fall asleep

Can these thoughts of
Doubt and sin fully go away
I want to live my life for you
Every single day

This life I lead is simple
But can overwhelm with ease
I look to you for guidance
And to hear these humble pleas

When I close my eyes, I want you here with me
I want to know, That you're pleased with what you see
So fill my heart with your refreshing peace
Tonight that's how I want to fall asleep
Track Name: San Francisco
don't just tell me what you think i wanna hear
that's just the kind of thing that landed us here
scared to leave and scared to say we don't wanna go
afraid of what we've seen and all we don't know

and if you don't, baby just say you don't
but if you do, please won't you tell me that you do
and if you won't, well i think that i'd rather know
and if you wanna go to san francisco....then go
just go

and i won't cry for you i won't waste no more tears
i'm not gonna let my life be ruled by fear
if you leave me now just like you left me them
i swear to you this time i'll have no regrets

if i'm not what you want then baby just say that i'm not
but if i am, please won't you show me that i am?
and if you won't, well i think that i'd rather know
and if you wanna go to san francisco...then go
just go

sometimes i wonder just how it makes you feel
when i tell you how beautiful you are to me
do you know that what it is i really mean
is that your face is the most beautiful that i've ever seen?

sometimes i wonder if you understand what i mean
when i tell you that i love you
sometimes i'm not sure if you know what i'm trying to say
is that i don't think i could live without you, oh no no

baby don't go

oh no no

can't live without you...
Track Name: The Show
well i'd never ask, and you'll never tell
so i'll assume the worst, maybe that's just as well
it still doesn't feel, like you're really gone
i still hear your voice, when i am alone
so i'll close my eyes, and try not to think
about where you are, and how you're not with me

'cuz you're moving on, and you're letting go
of all that went wrong, and all that i know

i know what i need, it's not what i want
i want you to stay, but i need to move on
well maybe this space, is just what we need
we've never been apart, for more than three days
but when i close my eyes, and i see your face
it's so hard to recall, why we parted ways

but i'm movin on, and i'm letting go
of all that went wrong, and all that i know
and i'll cut the strings, that bound you to me
so we can both go, on with the show

but we're letting go, and we're movin on
of all that we know, and all that went wrong
and i'll cut loose the strings, that bound you to me
so we can finally go, on with the show
Track Name: Butterflies
come closer sleepyhead
use my body for your bed
i'll keep you safe through the night
you will dream of waterfalls...
and butterflies...

the starlight, in your eyes
shines so bright...
and your face, in the moonlight
looks perfect tonight...

good morning dreamy eyes
i've found my place inside your smile
i know the time has come to go
i wish there was a way for you...
to know...

that my name, on your lips
sounds so sweet
and with your head, on my shoulder
i am complete
i'm sorry, that i made you leave...
and i'm sorry, that i couldn't see...
that you...made...me...
Track Name: Spring Again
Verse
I can see you, in every single day
You're in the breeze, that takes my cares away
Warmth in the sunlight, that travels to my heart
The subtle ways I see you, in this perfect work of art

Chorus
Standing in these leaves
Around these lonely, lifeless trees
(where could I be)
At one time they grew and thrived
They were green and so alive
(can you find me)

Verse 2
A season fades, while another starts anew
Leaves that were green, being to turn an amber hue
This lonesome heart, it waits for Spring once more
I think of you, you're the one I do adore

Chorus 2
Standing in these leaves
Around these lonely, lifeless trees
(where could I be)
At one time I grew and thrived
I felt like I was so alive
(can you find me)

Outro
How I want you
How I need you
I could never do this on my own

You've blessed me with
All I have yet
I still feel this yearning in my soul

To see you clearer
To love you deeper
To know my life is under your control

All my days I want to give to you
Track Name: Barefoot
sittin' still and quiet on the beach
or runnin' drunk and barefoot down the street
there's nowhere else i'd rather be
and noone else i'd rather were here with me

and i don't mind if you know
that you drive me wild
when you kiss my cheek
and i'm not scared to tell you
that i feel complete
when you're here with me

and i'm sorry that i'm not who i should be
and i'm sorry for always sayin' sorry
and i'm sorry 'cuz i probably shouldn't tell you
but i'm really starting to believe i love you...

i love you......

and i need you.....
Track Name: Suddenly Simple
i love the way...you hold my arm
and i love the way...that you smile.
i love it when...you lead me on
and i love it when...you laugh like a child
i'm not all you need
but don't give up on me
i will try to be
'cuz you are all i need

i love your strength, and your resolve
and you know that i love all your faults
i'll do all that i can to make you be
as happy as you have made me

i'm not all you need
but don't give up on me
it's suddenly simple to see
that you are all i need

i love you

i love you
