I Want You! 04:57
The moon lights up your face This love won't be replaced Lots of pretty girls came before (Well it's true) But I won't be searchin’ anymore, no Because I want you! (Girl I want you) I want you baby! (I want nothing new) I want you! (Let's make it true) I want you (Girl I want you) You're my rye and water; you're my muse I'll take a cup of you with my morning news You're my fireplace when the weather's cold The warmest hand that I'll ever hold Because I want you! (Girl I want you) I want you baby! (I want nothing new) I want you! (Let's make it true) I want you I wrote you a love song on the road Was a little early I suppose But I don't want facetimes or evening calls I want you here with me through it all

I’m a thousand miles away But all I miss is you Part of me just wants to stay But all of me wants you California girls are grand With their pretty smiles and their beach blonde hair But as I try to run it through my hands I’m wishin’ it weren’t theirs Girl I wanna make you mine I know it don’t make sense I can’t get you ‘offa my mind And I don’t wanna be your friend I don’t wanna be your friend No I don’t wanna be your friend I don’t wanna be your friend I don’t wanna be your friend I don’t wanna burn my bridges down But I don’t wanna let it be You and me we could run this town There’s no one else for me So let me touch that auburn hair And let me see that perfect smile I’ll take you with me to California We can make love for a little while Girl I wanna make you mine I know it don’t make sense I can’t get you ‘offa my mind And I don’t wanna be your friend I don’t wanna be your friend No I don’t wanna be your friend I don’t wanna be your friend I don’t wanna be your friend

I could have never guessed I'd be lovin you I thought that I was finished with the social cues I never thought I'd get so attached While my wounds were barely patched But now I’m healed and I love you ‘Cause I can't run from what's inside I've grown so tired of these earthly lies It ain't easy and it ain't fair But you can’t love without despair So I guess that’s just what I will do ‘Til death do us part Though you prob’ly could have used me from the start I won't break your heart Cause I can't stand the thought of us apart I thought that I could face this world alone I'm used to fighting battles on my own But I need you and I need a band To hold me back or help me stand I’m so much stronger beside you I never got my business degree There’s just no value in tuition fees Or government taxes or union dues There’s just so little left to choose But they can't stop me from having you ‘Til death do us part Though you prob’ly could have used me from the start I won't break your heart Cause I can't stand the thought of us apart

Religion without faith Beauty without grace You’re just a person From a place Where they worship their new gods from outer space It’s just a bold Clueless lie You can’t see the light Through shuttered blinds A soul Lives inside An earthly prison purpose built to die Born in a cage You never looked outside We’ll go back where we came from when it’s time Nobody makes it out alive ‘Cause All good things must die Sex without love Drugs to kill the hurt Of your pointless Empty job To pay for all the things you thought would work to fill The empty hole Left behind by living life for gold But those cars And fancy clothes Don't matter when they drop us in our holes Born in a cage They told you work would let you fly The only thing you’ll learn to crave is time Born to die The anecdote society provides But it’s alright Nobody makes it out Aliive All good things must die

Alexandria 04:40
Alexandria Why do you wear that cheap velvet dress Alexandria Why can't you just admit that you have less Even through your filthy hands You see yourself better than the rest Alexandria Why do I still sympathize Alexandria You love not with your heart, but with your eyes I know that you may look the part But your soul is just an ugly lie Alexandria Why do you find it so hard to love I know you smile at yourself But you couldn't laugh at yourself Because you think that you're just far too tough Alexandria My love Have you seen what you've become? Alexandria The road on which you’re walking leads to hell! Alexandria You’re just too deep in your tortured mind to tell But you won’t escape the destruction As the devil you're feeding comes out of his shell Alexandria It’s not too late to turn it away Alexandria These postmodern fools that you’re pleasing are causing your pain I know you think you have answers But you're farther away You're farther away than yesterday

Rising Tide 04:19
It’s clear the ship is sinkin’ That the world we once knew is gone But as the bow plunges into the icy depths I’m surprised to see men blindly hanging on The waves that rocked the boat so gently Have roared up over our heads And now down on our knees We’re just waiting for the sea To carry us off with the dead But the rising tide Will lift all boats That tried to float above the murky depths below And as the water does rise It’ll drown out the lies And the bureaucrats will be the first to go The rising tide Will surely kill As it washes out the dirt that makes us ill I don’t know where this world’s going But I can personally assure That before things gets better They’re gonna have to get much worse It’s clear that we’re all going crazy We haven’t spoken to each other for years They throw us in their predetermined groups And profit off our tendency to fear The weight they tried to tie us down with Is bringing them down with their ships And now it’s time to decide If you’re rising with the tide Or if you’ll die with lies upon your lips But the rising tide Will lift all boats That tried to float above the murky depths below And as the water does rise It’ll drown out the lies And the bureaucrats will be the first to go The rising tide Will lift all boats That had the bravery to find a way to float But as the water floods the tomb Your breathing will resume Without the hands of tyrants on your throat The rising tide Is gonna kill! It’s gonna wash away the world you thought was real I’m not sure this world’s going But with a gun up to my head I can’t wait to see This toxic culture dead

Fall 03:20
Fall is falling fast Love never lasts It dies with the leaves Chokecherries fall from the tree And smash silently Upon the concrete ground Supple as the love I’d found I've got to get out of this town When fall falls In September I'll remember when we laid by the creek While yellow leaves fell at our feet When Fall Bleeds into winter I won't miss her smile another day Fall is falling but I'm okay Without her Orange turn the leaves From their newborn green A distant memory Of who they used to be Winter’s coming fast To freeze whatever’s left Summer life is dead for now But spring will come to lift my brow When fall’s Gone by December I’ll remember when we laid by the creek While yellow leaves fall at our feet When fall And winter will be over I’ll live to love another day Fall is gone but I'm okay Without you

I'm deleting Facebook I don't wanna stare Into the dead eyes of A world in desperate disrepair I'm chasing the shadows Of all my old friends Living the lives That they have displayed To those looking in I can't run from Time And I can't hide From my pictures On display On the internet’s endless windowpane Lord please explain This newfangled 21st century kind of pain I'm spinning in circles Adrift in a time Where nothing makes sense And the biblical texts don’t line up with their lies I'm searching for meaning The same as us all I just don't seek the small comforts Of blending right in with the wall I can't run from Time And I can't hide All our stories Are the same Just beginnings with middles and ends and some love in between So try to refrain From this newfangled 21st century kind of pain Carve out a living Chasing all of your dreams Once you dive in the water ain't quite as deep as it seems But I can't run From time But I can try And we can't run From life And you can't hide From a world in Full display Jesus give us the power to focus on what we can change And try to refrain From this newfangled 21st century kind of pain Just run away From this newfangled 21st century kind of pain Things gonna change From this newfangled 21st century kind of pain

When you're blue And there's no one to love you Feel the world fly above your head When there's a god up above you And a woman who loves you The breeze don't feel so bad When I'm high And dried by myself I get by with a little help I got no ambition of Letting go of this pure love When I'm blue I'm above the world When I'm blue I don't need no girl When you're blue And your heart is above you Letting someone who loves you go Plans are unweaving Floating and dreaming The love we'll never know I could try another chance That I might find your lovin glance I ain't got no ambition of Letting go of this pure love When you're blue Through to your soul When I'm blue It swallows me whole When you’re blue And your heart is above you Letting someone who loves you go

Letters 03:45
My pocket opened And my heart's broken It's been forever since I saw you I'm off making music now And I've found somebody new Some days I wonder What it would be like If you ever wandered Back in my mind’s eyes I realized Love ain't fair It's the things that you leave behind That make it worth all the despair You said you won't be long And we'd say up until dawn Lying bathed in candlelight You'd read these letters through Some dark and lonely night I read your letter Thought I'd know better But I’ve been proven wrong Maybe our love wasn't so right I guess you can’t tell ‘til it’s gone I knew that you loved me I could see in your soul Your heart was so broken You could never take control This life ain't long Most of it's pain All of it would vanish with you Under autumn rains Girl it's been so long But are those feelings gone? While I'm under burning lights I read your letter through These bright but lonely nights When I was contemplating outer space You put me in place When I'm floating out in my own world You were my hand to hold As I lie alone tonight I'll read your letter through This dark and lonely night

about

Produced by Juno-award winning artist Jason Plumb (Colter Wall, The Dead South, Belle Plaine, Blake Berglund), “Rising Tide” is a journey album project that seamlessly transitions through multiple genres and energies, showcasing the diversity of Scott's work and offering a truly dynamic listening experience.

Lush orchestral ballads like “Fall”, “All Good Things Must Die”, and "Letters" offer rich sonic landscapes that dramatically set the stage for beautifully written lyrics and melodies. Groovy R&B tracks like “Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend” and “Til Death Do Us Part” offer deep basslines and tasty licks, while country-tinged blues rock cuts like “Rising Tide”, "Alexandria", and “21st Century Kind of Pain” deliver attitude-loaded guitars and a fiery outlaw energy.

A truly genre-defying record, “Rising Tide” features exceptional guitar work (all of which recorded by Pettigrew himself), alongside intricately woven storylines and commentary delivered by Scott’s excellent vocal performances.
