lyrics

The view from here is amazing
Empire State, central park, the alley below
And of course I could see your pretty face
When I stare out my bedroom window

We spent our summers trading smiles
Passing notes by pulling on the line
I could have sworn we were related
Cuz we both shared the color of our eyes

Black and blue from our daddies drinking booze
And coming home all angry with us to blame
We didn’t know what we did wrong, but we knew all along
Someday we’d make a break

We’d always say “maybe today”.

Bye bye, baby
Meet me by Miss Liberty
And we will sail away

You and I were not like lovers
More like sister and like brother
Pinky swears and secret shakes
They say there ain't no place like home
Fading bruises, bloody nose
Nothing we couldn’t take

Until I didn’t come to class
Week later, arm in cast
We were losing time
I’d never seen you so upset
It was now or just forget
Would we make it out alright?

We’d always say “maybe today”.

When we finally found the boat
Your daddy caught you by the throat
And he was dragging you on home
And you were screaming at me “Go!”
“Save yourself, take the boat,
You are strong enough to make it on your own.”
And I never saw you, saw you again, oh no

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.
