about

These are some songs I started and finally got around to finishing for the past 2 years in a time when I thought I had stopped playing guitar and writing songs entirely. They are deeply personal to me and reflect the places I've wandered in my own personal journey. After working through them, I am glad to have created a final product from it all.

Track Name: Untitled
You had a boyfriend, just like you wanted. He's yelling something that makes you feel haunted. Well, the cats on the table kicking your cradle. Is that everything or just what you wanted?

You've stayed up late at night tossing and turning, eyes still burning. I wish you could have known mistakes you had, mistakes you owned.

And I don't know why you try so hard to get me back into your arms, again.
Track Name: Braid
A viscous tide as jagged as the sun.
A single tone making fun of me.

And you're treating me like I'm something to fear.
And you're treating me like I'm nothing, my dear.

Take your time, this clock runs slow.
Don't let it stop counting on me.

(We all fall down. We get lost sometimes.)
And you're treating me like I'm something to fear.
(We all fall down. We get lost sometimes.)
And you're treating me like I'm nothing. my dear.

And I'm hanging by your bones.
Taking the fever with the cold.
But it won't stop me.
I won't let you go...
Track Name: Freeze Frame
I've been waiting for days for you to get out of my brain. I'm restless and I'm still trying. When did the sun get so gray? I really don't remember it this way.

Freeze frame

Numb this pain or get the fuck out of my veins. I'm restless and I'm still trying. When did the sun get so gray? I really don't remember it this way.

Freeze frame
Track Name: Katrina
Sundays never really felt this way.
All of these windows staring back at me.
If the rain keeps coming down, don't know where I'll be.

'Cause you are far away from here.
Running like the rivers in town today.

It hurts sometimes to say I miss you.
Do I really have to face a day without you?
If the storm comes around, don't know where I'll be.

'Cause you are far away from here.
Running like the rivers in town today.

All of these windows staring back at me.
If this rain keeps coming down, don't know where I'll be.
