about

What can I say? I'm so thrilled that this music is in the world now.

Thank you so much to every performer and engineer who helped this come to life, and every friend and family member who listened to mix after mix and gave me thoughtful feedback. This is a "solo" project, but it was a true group effort, and I am profoundly grateful.

Thank you for listening. If you like what you hear, please support the project by sharing it with your friends and family.

Track Name: That Night
That night we saw the stars together,
and buried our feet in the sand
Saw reflections on the water
Oh, your hands upon my hands!

That night we heard the world expanding
Waves and flames were our music
Orange-red glowing up and under
Oh, your lips upon my lips!

That night we tasted salt and sweet
We swam through ocean, foam, and mist
Clothes left on the shore, forgotten
Oh, your skin upon my skin!

That night was daylight soon enough
As suddenly as birds in flight
Pounding waves and sandy heads
And oh, your eyes not meeting mine.
Oh, your eyes not meeting mine.
Track Name: A Good Thing
I saw your wife the other day
it looks like she is getting big
I know you said that when the baby’s born
we would have to quit
But I’m falling in love
with the idea of being someone’s dirty secret

Shut up! Get in the car
We’re going to take a ride
I’ll go as many hours
as it takes for you to realize
Don’t talk when I talk
I’m gonna drive as fast as I decide

You haven’t seen half of what I can do yet
I’m gonna make you scream my name
like you were a dying man
I’m gonna fuck you in my house
while she is sleeping in your bed
You worshipped me once
and you’re gonna do it again.
You’re gonna do it again.

Why stop a good thing now?
A kid will make no difference
I know the kind of man you are
you won’t be happy with just them
No, you’ll never go straight
And I’ll be damned
if I just let you slip away to someone else
Track Name: The Future
I saw the future the second it changed
Turned all the lights off inside of your brain
Thought I wouldn’t notice, you don’t know that I made
Studies of your habits, and your secret ways

I saw the future the second it changed
Heard all the words before the breath that you take
Predicted your face before the muscles arranged
I saw the shutdown; the rookie mistake

And now you want to talk about the past?
Try to understand –
We’re two years out and you finally came back
I can’t do it again
Not like last time when

I saw the future the second it changed
I saw your eyes decide which path to take
I saw the shutdown, I saw the mistake
I saw the second the love left your face
I saw the second the love left your face
I saw our future the second it changed
Track Name: Sirens
Oh, I long to hear choruses of sirens
Beating half your door in
will that shake you open?
Oh, I long to know if every frozen ocean
Ever can be broken
Are you ever choked up?

Smaller in my arms
Than I remember
A heartbeat’s sudden stop
Last November
Brittle bones, sticks and stone
Brittle bones, dial tones

Oh, I long to hear choruses of sirens
Beating half your door in
will that shake you open?
Oh, I long to know
if every frozen ocean
Ever can be broken
Are you ever choked up?

I am here
I am here
I am here
Track Name: The Silence
It’s the creaking of the floors
and the cold that’s settled in
The ice that slips across the door,
the shutters banging in the wind
It’s the wrinkling of your nose
and the dryness of your skin
It’s a drag that will not go
and a cough that just persists.
It’s the silence in these walls, a silence
And I must keep quiet

The way your frame hangs in your clothes,
and the thin line of your mouth
And when we walk across the road,
how your shoulders hunching down
It’s what everybody knows,
and what no one talks about
And the clenching of your throat
when you think of saying it out loud
It’s the silence in these walls, a silence
And I must keep quiet

I can see you’re struggling
But I’m not gonna help you out
We were happier before, before we moved into this house

Now there’s a silence in these walls, a silence
That’s a sleeping giant
it’s a sleeping giant
And if I am quiet
oh, I must keep quiet
It might not be woken
I think I can hide it

Stay with me, don’t go
I need you still, I know you know
Stay with me, don’t go
I want you happy, I want you close
Don’t say it’s one, not both. Can’t it be both?
Is it impossible? Don’t say that it’s impossible
Oh, stay with me, don’t go
