about

After finishing my second album, I had a lot of songs left over. And so I decided to record four of them...that's all I have to say about that.

Track Name: Family
Just so you know, it’s hard on your mother
The pain that acts like a brother

So let’s save our love for each other

In a way, you’ll never recover
It’ll take a while, buried under

You’re a disappointment to your father

Did you know I once had a sister?
Split in half during the summer
Track Name: Sheets of Linen
You’ve got me on repeat, constant rotation
Oh what a relief, a dream worth chasing
The world is spinning
When it’s you I’m missing

White as a sheet, lucid sheet of linen
Timid like a child, my heart is racing
Looking down at my feet
In between flashing glances

Late for the meeting
And you never showed
It’s a life worth cheating
That’s just the way it goes

Jolly as can be, for the time being
Imperfect harmony, delays frustration
Take a look in the mirror
Is it that much clearer now?

Late for the meeting
And you never showed
It’s a life worth cheating
That’s just the way it goes

You’ve got me on repeat, constant rotation
Artificial relief, a dream worth chasing
The world is spinning
When it’s you I’m missing
Track Name: Friendly Reminder (I Warned You)
I told you, the reason
It must be the season
Couldn’t quite make it out
I’m standing, barely
On my two feet
Shaking at the core
Anger, depression
My passive regression
All those highs and lows
I warned you, of what comes
When you find your true love
A false trajectory

In trouble now, much too weak to shout
Wondering how this came about

I told you, it’s too late
Just know it’s not hate
When I look away
Laughing, and smiling
And slowly, fading
Into oblivion
It’s a friendly, reminder
To run out the timer
Some things never last
I warned you, of what comes
When you find your true love
At touch it turns to stone

In trouble now, much too weak to shout
Wondering how this came about
Track Name: Anyway
What am I even doing here?
Something has gone awry
It must be some kind of dream
You should know that things change slowly
Any which way that I’d go
Wouldn’t even lead me back home

You don’t need to act surprised
When deep down inside
It should be clear as day
You should have held me closely
Any which way that I’d go
Wouldn’t even lead me back home
