about

These were recorded straight into my computer using the built-in mic, so I apologize for the sound quality. Most of them were recorded was on a breezy, humid August night in an old farmhouse full of people on Long Island, alone + close to the window looking toward the ocean. Kids were running around outside my room, playing + screaming + laughing. Some were recorded elsewhere, an adobe house near a graveyard, a wooden house on a creek, an apartment above a coffee shop... These songs were written between 2009-2015, on farms, beaches, in the woods, all over the United States, in the cold + in the heat, in the light + in the dark, with love <3

Track Name: Feel My Love
When I'm dreaming of you
When you're all alone
When there's no one with you
Can you feel my love?

When you're dreaming of me
When I'm all alone
When there's no one with me
I can feel your love

When you're reaching for me
When I'm all alone
When you're dreaming of me
I can feel your love
Track Name: map or mirror
I'm looking for a map
or a mirror
something i can look at
to help me see a little clearer

the leaves are turning red and
all the roads are clear
there's a fire on the mountain
and i've got to get out of here

i don't know where i am going to
i dont know what i am gonna do

1 step forward 2 steps back
no way to get around
i thought i was on the right track
now i'm just laying on the ground

i'm trying to light a match
in the pouring rain
i wish that it would catch
make me feel a little less insane

i don't know where i am going to
i dont know what i am gonna do

the fear is spilling out
and my mind is going blank
i can't seem to move
so pass me another drink

i pray up to the gods
can you feel my devotion?
here comes the storm
and i am swallowed by the ocean

i dont know where i am going to
i dont know what i am gonna do
Track Name: Little Red Car
You drive with the windows down
In your little red car all over town
and you read your books about astrology
and I see you, and you see me

We meet on a secret beach
with things to learn and things to teach
we walk that wavy line and
talk about that wavy time

Moonstone on your bedside stand
things don't always go according to plan
so you ask for help from Ganesha
and you ask for help from Jesus
and you ask for help from your mother
and you ask for help from your brother

Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum

Om nama shivaya
Om nama shivaya

Shiva shiva shiva shiva shiva
Rama Rama Rama Rama Rama Rama Rama

Om

You drive with your windows down
in your little red car all over town
and you read your books about astrology
and I see you, and you see me
Track Name: Everything is Changing
Lights go on and lights go off
and the night is young and you wander off
to see the world and find yourself

but everything keeps changing
everything is changing


The rain comes down and the earth is clean
and you stand up tall and follow a dream
and you're never sure just what that means

and everything keeps changing
everything is changing

and the night is dark and a train goes by
and you miss your friends and you start to cry
and you're all alone and you don't remember why

and everything keeps changing
everything is changing

you're a little lost and your money's almost gone
but you find someone and you both travel on
and you share the cost and you get along

and everything keeps changing
everything is changing

the moon is full and all the lights are on
and you're with your friends and you sing them all your songs
and you love again and your pain's all gone

and everything keeps changing
everything is changing
Track Name: June Song
Looking at the horizon
I try not to think of him
but I'm losing
I've asked the waving sea
does he think of me
It doesn't answer

But I know to stand up straight
and to appreciate
all the good things every day
and all the good things keep coming my way

Last time I fell in love
I fell alone
I don't want to go there
It took me so long to come home

But I know to walk alone
I have got to throw his stone
into the ocean here
and watch it disappear

I don't know anything
I cannot remember my own name
That is just a lie that I tell
so I don't have to go away to heaven

I'm afraid that nothing happens there
You could just sit and stare
out into the nothingness
but I like living best

I think that I know right from wrong
I know to sing along
I pour my love into all my deeds
and I'm pulling up the weeds
and I'm planting seeds
Track Name: I'll Make it
Some circles don't break
Some peoples' hearts don't ache
which way do I turn?
which end do I burn?

I climb up a hill and I stare out into space
I think I know something but I can't say

I'll keep it to myself.
I'll keep it to myself.
I'll keep it to myself.
I'll keep it
I'll keep it
I'll keep it to myself

Where do I go now?
I left so many towns
Which way do I go next?
What do I have left?

I sit below the moon
I let it wash over me
The light is everywhere
and then the light leaves

I'll light the way myself
I'll light the way myself
I'll light the way myself
I'll light the
I'll light the
I'll light the way myself

How dark is the darkest night?
How hard do I have to fight?
How far do I have to go?
Will I ever find a home?

I sit beside the water's edge
suddenly I see the light
It becomes so clear to me
that what I haven't found yet
Isn't out there at all and that's alright

I'll make it myself
I'll make it myself
I'll make it myself
I'll make it
I'll make it
I'll make it myself

I'll do it by myself
I'll build it myself
I'll find it for myself
I'll make it
I'll make it
I'll make it myself
Track Name: Carrots in the Ground
Let's go to bed like carrots in the ground
Carrots in the ground sleep so sound
Ooh, let's be carrots in the ground

Let's go to sleep like weeds under the sea
weeds under the sea swaying in our dreams
ooh, let's be weeds under the sea

Let's make love like flowers do with bees
flowers and bees make the honey sweet
ooh, let's be flowers, let's be bees

Let's float along like dandelion seeds
dandelion seeds carried on the breeze
ooh, let's be dandelion seeds
ooh, let's be dandelion seeds.
Track Name: Promises
All The Promises I made to you,
I'm gonna keep them. I will follow through.

All the stories I live inside my mind
you're gonna see them, I'm taking the time

I can't fix you
I can't save you
but I can show you how

There's no history
there's no future
there is only now

where there's daylight
there will be a shadow
let go of the fight

feel the power
of the mystery
let your heart be light

All the promises I made to you
I'm gonna keep them, I will follow through

all the stories we tell along the way
can you believe them? do you put them away?

I'm not sorry
I'm not worried
You will come around

Keep believing
we'll cross over
love won't let us down

We're not dreaming
Love is winning
we are breaking through

The world keeps spinning
you're still standing
let love come to you

All the dreams you're dreaming will come true
you gotta keep them, they will pull you through

all the melodies yet to be sung
we're gonna find them. it's only just begun

all the stories that live inside my mind
you're gonna see them, i'm taking the time

all the promises i made to you
i'm gonna keep them. I will follow through.
Track Name: Do You Kill for Sport?
Let's move forward to where we want to be from
and only break the silence with laughter and love
feel the sunlight come streaming through the trees
and watch the river run and listen to the bees

Work in service to the beauty of your dreams
and make them manifest and set them free
have faith in all you must go through
the circle will lead you back to you

Do you kill for sport?
Do you kill for sport?
Do you pay for love?
How do you pay for love?

Look beyond the fear in your own mind
stop quieting your truth with other peoples' lies
If you listen beyond the pain you will find
the sunshine following the rain

Do you kill for sport?
Do you kill for sport?
Do you pay for love?
How do you pay for love?

Give honor to all the work you do
Come what may, be good, be true
The night is darkest before the dawn
Open your eyes and turn your light on

Do you kill for sport?
Do you kill for sport?
Do you pay for love?
How do you pay for love?
Track Name: The Good Fight
Thank you for breathing the life into my songs
Thank you for leading the way when I got lost
Thank you for knowing my name when I forgot
Thank you for loving me, for loving me a lot

But when do I dance and when do I sing
and what do i do with all this love that I bring?
that i bring
that i bring
that i bring


Thank you for lighting the way out through the dark
Thank you for igniting that far, far away spark
Thank you for sunshine that breaks out from the clouds
Thank you for letting me get so lost, and found

But when do I dance and when do I sing
and what do I do with all this love that I bring?
that i bring
that i bring
that i bring
And how do we keep ourselves in the light?
How do we keep on fighting the good fight?
the good fight
the good fight
the good fight

Thank you for planting all those seeds out in the field
Thank you for providing the sword and the shield
Thank you for loving me even when I was wrong
Thank you for leading me to the places where I belong

But when do I dance and when do I sing
and what do I do with all this love that I bring?
that i bring
that i bring
that i bring
And how do we keep ourselves in the light?
How do we keep on fighting the good fight?
The good fight
the good fight
the good fight
Track Name: I've Got Mine (Chris Smither cover)
Troubles come by threes
doing what they want to
instead of doing what they ought to
i've got mine
some go quickly passed
others seem to last + last
hold on.

salvation comes for free
sailing on the shadows
it widens and it narrows
i've got mine
if heaven were lined in gold
heaven would be bought and sold
hold on

people kill for love
taking it as plunder
paid in blood and thunder
i've got mine
when we've gone to sand
this still stains our hands
hold on

sing a song of sorrow
of truth forever bending
always hopeful never ending
i've got mine
tears beyond control
try to clean my soul
hold on
