about

This album is kind of like a hand made valentine, and not one of those magical pinterest home made valentines. The old fashioned red paper heart with a doily and some thoughtfully written words kind of hand made valentine. I wanted to start my 2014 out getting acquainted with my recording equipment (for reasons which will be revealed later) and by giving more music to those of you who have been waiting patiently for something new for YEARS. So here it is, entirely self produced, imperfect but earnest and all for you.

Track Name: Imperfectly Intro
I come to you imperfectly
these scars bear testament to my history
but it doesn't mean less
just cause you aren't the first
love grows wiser the more that it's rehearsed
the fantasy's gone
leaving only a man
so fragile so frightened with his heart in his hands
to old to pretend
that love holds no risks
our eyes open to the consequences

But I wouldn't trade what we've got for
any high school fairy tale
no Hollywood happy ending
would ever be enough
for me.
Track Name: Wild Things
You built a hearth around my heart
tended the flames to keep me warm
against the coldest winter wind
against the coldest winter wind
but even the smallest spark
dreams of the inferno
tough you might contain it
you know that you can't change it

you built a place where I can stay
and watch the passage of the days
a haven where I feel safe
a haven where I feel safe
but often the citadel
turns into a holding cell
when it's time to let me go
will you know

It's not that I don't care for you
or appreciate the things you do
but Wild things belong to the the wild
Track Name: Diamonds
They say love conquers all
well I don't want to be conquered anymore
I'm dropping out of the war
my white flag flying
all those years I believed
that being wanted by somebody
would finally make me feel worthy
but I have always been just as I am

I don't, need diamonds to sparkle
they can't outshine the stars in my eyes
and all the red roses in the world
wouldn't be as sweet as being free
from you

All those books that I read
and hoped they'd fix some mortal flaw
that made me so un-loveable
to all the boys since highschool
all the times that I tried to fit myself into a mold
thinking it made me beautiful
but I have always been just as I am

I don't need diamonds to sparkle
they can't outshine the stars in my eyes
and all the red roses in the world
wouldn't be as sweet as being free
from you

For better or worse
in sickness and health
in poverty or wealth
I can only be myself
so take me as I am
or never come again
never come round here again

I don't need your diamonds to sparkle
they can't outshine
the stars in my eyes
and all the red roses in the world
wouldn't be as sweet as being free
I don't need diamonds to sparkle
they can't outshine the stars in my eyes
and all the red roses in the world
wouldn't be as sweet as being free from you.
Track Name: The Storm
These bald tires
they don't grip like they're supposed to
so many miles have word down the tread
and I thought distance might teach me not to miss you
but it's worn my resolve down instead
now lightning flashes in the distance
and I race it towards my empty bed
I'm not sure if I'm trying to beat the storm
or the loneliness in my head

This old car she's starting to sputter
she's seen better days I guess we both have
when I didn't fear the rumble of thunder
so sure I could stay my path
but now these clouds are rolling in
and I'm pushing faster than I should
I'm not sure if I'm trying to beat the storm
or what I'd do over if I could

The first drops
they're starting to spatter
before the wipers dash them awau
there's a soft his
as the sky splits
and I pull into your drive way
and for a moment I just stand there
let this cold water wash me clean
I'm not sure if I beat the storm
but I can't run from what you mean to me
