lyrics

There was a time
When we were wandering
And we found hope
Someone was offering

We were young
And neither of us knew
This perfect family
Was just too good to be true

Oh, your shoulders could almost break in two
When all this time I could have sworn we were floating
How about you?

And now, oh
I’ll be the one to pull you back out
You’ve got your heart
Buried under verses
Oh, baby let me take, take, take away your curses

When I drive by
It all comes back to me
I can hear all the angels
Talk to me

But we can’t blame
Anybody else
Still we can’t shake
The smell of those cigarettes

And I’ll be damned if they take even one more tear
I swear to God, I will make this up to you, my dear

It’s breaking your back
It’s breaking my heart
They promised us truth
We were wishing on stars
Just look at us now
What have we left?
Just holding our breath
Second-guessing ourselves

about

Saint Jayne Eugene, Oregon

The last few years have delivered me an unexpected dose of reality for which I am very grateful. Some of it is captured here in my music. The questionable, the frustrating, the hopeful. The blessings and the curses. None of which I would change.

I write songs on my guitar and add electronic sounds to them.
