Paperthin 04:01
‘Neath the aspens Rusting leaves take flight Hallowed light of morning On your countenance tonight Burnished & branded, senses abandoned to you And your blue eyes I’m trembling in the doorway Shuttered & feathered & struggling to bring it to light Times you’re like mercury My defenses are paperthin Here in the waiting, waxing & waning, I’m Paperthin Oh, summer come heal me, I’m Paperthin Midst of winter New Year’s Eve tonight Leafless scarecrow trees touch Like our stars cross in flight Burnished & branded, restless & candid with you Into your sweet light Your rainy eyes won’t own you I’ll hold you till dawn kisses the night We were in bloom We would shine like the stars

Avalanche (free) 04:29
Bracing for the avalanche Waking up the sleepers Where you go, I will go And hang out with the dreamers April seven, you’re waking up To the brighter side of what’s making up your little world The flowers and the season bloom Like the daylight shining in the room In the place that you now call home In the air, you feel the change Suddenly, your splintered trust is rearranged Thinking love is worth the fall The damage healed, and truth is all that remains You and I can wander far I feel I could bottle up the stars and give them to you But I’m not sleeping, I’m waking now And ready to see exactly how this all plays out “Make something of your life,” they say You find you have, and those voices fade away Thinking love is worth the fall The damage healed, and truth is all that remains Tell me, ‘cause I may be wrong But I’m thinking maybe I belong Thinking love is worth the fall The damage healed, and truth is all that remains Truth is all that remains Truth is all that remains Truth is all that remains

Repairs 03:48
Rain fell through the open window Of her recurring dream Water gathered on the wooden floor Empty chairs in an empty house She fumbled for the keys To open up that wooden door Dawn creeps in, like love itself When you let love in Words sting like the truth They haunt me like a ghost Pray that love will heal the fracture & bring repairs that we need most He tried in vain to catch her In his recurring dream Stars reflected in black water & so he dove in after Though he knew not how to swim He could not bear to lose her Dawn creeps in, like love itself When you let love in Words sting like the truth They haunt me like a ghost Pray that love will heal the fracture & bring repairs that we need most Dawn creeps in, like love itself When you let love in

about

One beautiful spring evening in April, I collaborated with my friends Andrew, Caleb, & Ben to do a live recording of 3 of my songs in one of my favorite arrangements--with strings. Violin & cello make you just feel something, and I think that these three tracks captured that emotion as well as the excellent acoustics of The Community Room on Prince.
