about

I recorded this album at home, whenever I wasn't at work, from June to August 2009. Some of these songs are three years old, from when I had just begun writing music, and some of them are only three months old. You can download the album for free or choose any price that seems fitting. Enjoy!
These tracks were digitally refreshed in June 2013 -- you're listening to improved versions of the original mixes!

Track Name: Didn't I?
I thought I had it made with her, and didn't I?
Funny how I never get it right.
Together at the party it was all a lie
What a way to ruin a whole night.

She looked so happy flirting with that drunker guy
We don't look alike but he's just about my height
Running around, laughing and kissing constantly
But I could've sworn last week that guy was me.

I should've listened
To the truth they were spitting
I should've listened
I don't know why I didn't

Thought I had it made with her, and didn't I?
Funny how I never get it right.
Track Name: You Could Have Been With Me
So elusive it's somehow seductive, like I'll never know the truth
and so I'm chasing after you.
When you smile I think you might like me, but it's mischief just as likely
and either way I've got no proof.
You softly slink, slowly sink through my mind
And I want you more than the love I've waited for
my whole life

I worry about how my hair looks when I walk to meet up with you, as if there's something I could do.
And I hope you're not into bad books or music that makes me sick, 'cause I can't abide that shit.
You softly slink, slowly sink through my mind
And I want you more than the love I've waited for
my whole life

And I wish that you could have been with me, the day I heard the news
That we've lost the right to choose
And there's nothing we can do.
Track Name: Turn Into Light
The clocks run fast
But time is something far too large for that
I'd trade my skin
For something that I could fit in

I can't see
And I don't believe
What goes around
Never slows down

It's time to go
Ten degrees below
The center of the earth
Is all I've ever known

Set me free from all this nonsense
And blame it all on my subconscious
Now I know we're not quite fucked just yet

Belie the normal side of life
We might die but we'll still return at night
We'll die but we'll still return at night
We'll die but we'll still return at night
We'll die but we'll all turn into light
We'll die but we'll all turn into light

It's time to go
Ten degrees below
The center of the earth
Is all I've ever known

Set me free from all this nonsense
And blame it all on my subconscious
Now I know we're not quite fucked just yet.
Track Name: Might Be Wise
Waking up in the late afternoon and I'm doing this all wrong, I'm doing it terribly
And I wanna see you soon, I need to know if you will ever stop wanting me
I work into the night, too late to pick a fight 'cause no one walks the streets I know
But I think it might be wise to blow off whatever's inside that won't let me go

I never meant
For that message I sent
To start anything
It's not what you think

Every time I come back home there's always someone waiting as though I'd left them alone
And I can't imagine why, can't figure out what I do to deserve this show
But I take it all in stride, I might fake some things so I don't ever hurt their pride
And I love it here, although I always feel alone as we all become more unknown

I never meant
For that message I sent
To start anything
It's not what you think
It's not what you think
It's not what you think.
Track Name: When Days Were Gold
Oh, I've seen you smile
And I know your fears
But I return and you are never here

I've read your thoughts
They're glowing in the dark
But I know you and you'll disappear

When days were gold
When days were gold

You'd see me and that was enough for you
Saw through me and everybody knew

Saw through me and everybody knew.
Track Name: Making It Fall
I built you up and sang it out
But you broke yourself and fell back down
And it's such a shame I ever learned your name
And had it seared into my brain
But I'd call you up if I thought you'd changed

Did I read it wrong?
Did I make it up?
Did you fake it all?
Did I break it up?

This childish thing you won't explain
Won't do you right when you do it again
The words you left out in the air
That I know you don't wanna hear
Will find their way back to your ears

I know I read it wrong
Your friends, they made it up
Just for fun
It seems you faked it all
And so I broke it off
For some other one

For some other one
For some other one
Oohhhh
For some other one
Find another one
And let me go.
Track Name: Oh My God
Oh I was born in the sun
And I love everyone
I know everything that fate will bring to you
Even if you wouldn't want it to

I make my home in the sea
The world's drowning in me
You can visit if you please and brave the waves that break incessantly to comfort me

But I've got no control of time
I can't bend straight lines
So if you're looking not to die I'd recommend that you look elsewhere 'cause I'm not your guy.
Track Name: 1,900
I change so slowly
When she moves me
My heart breaks slightly
Just to spite me

And I don't know
Where she goes
Show me happy
When she sees me

Am I so wrong
That you can't wait this long?
I know you weren't empty
When you loved me

And I
Am light
Tonight
Tonight

And I don't know
Where she goes
Show me happy
When she sees me.
Track Name: Our Kind
When it's least expected, considered circumvented
It comes on strong
As if I wouldn't notice
Like I didn't know something was wrong

Oh but I know your kind
Leave me halfway home each time

Slowing down the motions
Our mouths ripe for shutting up this year
You're a toy machine gun
Making noise but meaning so much more

Oh and I've known our kind
I won't be hollow in my life

I'll recall everything that I've said
I've got it written down inside my head
(if you ask me to)
And I'll fall asleep anytime in your bed
It's not a problem if you want me to
I'll recall every work that I've said
I've got 'em written down inside my head
(If you ask me to)
And I'll fall asleep anytime in your bed
It's not a problem if you want me to.
Track Name: The Only Way To Resist
Oh we'll all move on to prettier ones, which is what we thought at the start
But for now we'll pretend we're the only ones, collapsing and rebuilding in the dark
And I'll take you down to the river's edge
And we'll think about all the things it says
Oh a thought knocks me into the water
The current moves and my ripples smooth

And the water drags me under
But I'm still breathing underwater
I see your eyes are glassing over
On the shore you blink and something's changed
I never meant it that way

Oh night's the only peace that exists
And sleep's the only way to resist
Ignorance is the one thing I miss
If I'm wrong I won't be afraid to admit,
But I think I'm not the one you're looking for

They'll all be
Pictures on the wall for me
That's all I need
Frozen faces smiling knowingly.
