That Night 04:06
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.

A Good Thing 04:40
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

The Future 03:10
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

Sirens 05:46
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

The Silence 06:15
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

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.
