risky

[recording on soundcloud] oh it’s only recently become clear to me how completely unprepared i am to even give a smile or hold your hand- oh, i’m lost. why are your words in some foreign language that i simply cannot understand no matter how many times; how many days and weeks and nights i’ve studied […]

i once thought i knew

[recording on soundcloud] there were days when nothing made me happier than seeing you, and there were nights when nothing that i tried brought me peace from seeing you. but time has taken that all away. time has faded everything that i once thought i knew to be true. all that i could see was […]

almost gone (unfinished song)

the rain is falling, and the porch lights off. the night is humming it’s summer song. oh, i’d always dreamed of moments like this but never realized their impermanence. oh, the moon’s almost gone. oh, the moon’s almost gone. you asked her a question once, and she’ll never forget the clear look in your eyes as […]

without (unfinished song)

empty skeleton, bark skin hides whats within; inside and out. the wind has stolen them, all your colorful friends, now you’re left without. the sun sets, the streetlights, obey the rules and flicker to life, the shadows fill with doubt. the alleyways, corners of your mind, the brick streets, keeping you down, now you’re left […]

i still think about you now

it started out like all the rest: a tiny hitch inside my chest. but you had them beat for sure- no, none of them had brown eyes like yours. i gave in and started watching your favorite show, something i never thought i’d do. to tell the truth it hurts a little bit, cause all […]
