about

This is my first EP titled "The Kindling. This is a collection of songs which I felt deeply reflect some of my larger life experiences, such as times of mourning, times of loss, times of recovery, times of beauty, and times of sheer captivation. Every song is open for different interpretation, my only hope is that you find yourself in any one of my compositions.

Track Name: The Recovery
Sometimes it feels like I'm falling apart.
But otherwise at times, I cause the upsets.
You know I'm not perfect, yet still you remain here.
This distance too great; but my worries will part.
Well I've fallen victim to this simple routine.
My life's a series of rooms; never ending it seems.
Sometimes i wonder, but why do i even bother?
I know in the end I'll just be on my own...
Am I alone?
I'm on my own.
I'm all alone.
Now that I've broken free from my captive routine,
Killin' time with you's always my number one to-do.
You know this is perfect, so I hope we remain here...
Cause I sure as hell won't be standing alone.
Now that I have escaped from my captive routine,
Killin' time with you's always my number one to-do
You know this is perfect, so I hope we remain here...
Cause I sure as hell won't be standing alone.
I'm not alone, not anymore...
I'm not alone...
And we're in love.
Track Name: The Kindling
Have you ever experienced that moment when they find out what you are?
It throws the kindling right out the door.
Everything he's ever known, every feeling ever felt...
It's all boiled down to this for them, for him
And now he walks, going separate ways
Is this the end?
I never thought it'd end
It's unsettling, it's sinking in
This is the last time I try to do what's best for me, for you, for anyone
All of this abuse has worn me out
I'm sick and tired of feeling used
I should've listened but I never do
I fell so hard and now I feel alone...
I feel alone
But I'm not alone?
No I'm not alone.
Despite all the things I've been through
I still endured, but can't move on
Everything I've ever known
Every feeling ever felt
It's unsettling when I think of you
It's unsettling when I think of you
Track Name: Let it Bloom
You've bitten the hand that once fed you
But bending the rules is what you do
It what you know, never who you know
Forever alone? Not a chance my friend
I know that she's real, we shouldn't pretend
We will meet some day, she'll be here to stay
-
She's spent all her days chasing tails and cars
We need to slow down, take it step by step
Like a needle in hay, stop and look away
You'll find what it is you're looking for
I needn't even use any metaphors
Like " a needle in hay", stop and look my way
-
Stop, and let me breathe
Stop, and let me breathe
Let me breathe
Guilty as charged, but never proven wrong
Follow this advice; never fall too hard
Sometimes it's best to just let go
In music I trust for in silence I fear
If I was ever to lose that which I hold so dear
I'm sorry to say, I would lose my way
I would lose my way
Track Name: North Bound
We're all the same
We'll be searching forever for that thing that makes us whole
-
And here we are
No shield against this fate
It's lost not to be found
It's here you'll play your part
-
With all of this in mind,
Do we possess the means to find our ways back now?
Just follow whats in your heart
With faith alone keep strong
We'll find out sooner or later if our faith is enough
-
I'm lost now In my dreams
The trail is growing cold
This winter chills my bones
My doubts are growing strong
-
With all of this aside
Will I possess the means to choose whats best for me?
As selfish as it may seem
No faith in self
It's time I moved on to better things
And to prove my self worth
-
I feel alone, but I'm surrounded...
I feel alone, but I'm surrounded...
I feel alone, but I'm surrounded...
I feel alone, but I'm surrounded...
SAVE ME
SAVE ME
