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.

Track Name: Paperthin
‘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
Track Name: Avalanche
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
Track Name: Repairs
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
