In September of 2016, ZTB teamed up with two-time Grammy Award nominee, Houston rock/metal producer and former Hunger guitarist/producer, Stephen Bogle, to record two songs: “Fallin' Apart” and “What Are You Doin' Tonight?” The songs were to be included on ZTB’s 2019 “Angels & Outlaws” CD but in the end only “Fallin’ Apart” was released as a single. “What Are You Doin’ Tonight” remained unreleased but is still performed at live shows. A video, featuring black and white still photographs by French street photographer, Guillaume Lejeas (www.shootixproduction.com) can be viewed on ZachTate.com and YouTube. Tate met Lejeas while touring France in the summer of 2015.

"Everybody Gets A Little Lonely On Christmas"
Music and Lyrics by Zach Tate
Street lights, slow fallin' snow
Many miles, many years, many roads
To that girl I used to know
Really don't seem so long ago

Everybody gets a little lonely on Christmas
Everybody's got some kind of wish
Everbody's heart weighs a little heavy
For that someone they miss

Late December in Texas
Words slidin' off the page
Roof top rain drops callin' me
Thoughts of you fallin' in between

Everybody gets a little lonely on Christmas
Everybody's got some kind of wish
Everbody's heart weighs a little heavy
For that someone they miss

Galveston
Lyrics: Zach Tate Music: Zach Tate/Stuart Kinzel
 
I was born in a crowded city
Crowded people with their crowded heads
I saw you in that pretty summer dress
I saw you in that big ‘ol red sunset
 
Now how many times to myself I must remind
I can never be nobody else
           
So I bid you all adieu
I may be gone a year or two
I’m waitin’ for my girl in the sun
Baby you’re the one
I really hope you come                                               
Meet me on the beach in Galveston
 
Comes a time we must leave behind
Ambitions and traditions we must walk the line
I float away like a bottle on the sea
I have a dream of you and me
