about

The album is underway! This song is a taste of what we are working on. More to come soon.

All funds go right back into recording- $1 is awesome! If you would like to make a larger contribution to my recording without breaking the bank, consider purchasing the song for the price of your last cup of coffee. Happy listening!

Track Name: God River Waltz
God River Waltz

you were an ocean that I tried to cross
and I was a desert where we both got lost for a lifetime
we broke apart like a cliff after winter
there ain't no ice to keep us a mountain no more

the river has a voice like a sweet mandolin
she sounds like a bird that has two broken wings
there ain't nowhere she'll go
there ain't no place that she'll go that the shoreline don't know

aa-ooh you were an ocean, I was a desert
aa-ooh you were an ocean I tried to cross

god is a twisted and weathered pine
we cut its branches and built us a fire that gave no warmth at all
gave no warmth at all
the wood was the green of a northern river
we poured gasoline on this life and burnt it to ash

aa-ooh you were an ocean, I was a desert
aa-ooh you were an ocean I tried to cross
Track Name: Dreamer's Sea
Dreamer's Sea

If I walked myself down this road
it was for something
the storm is finally blowing in
long after I choked on the dust
the red air turned into red mud
left stains on my feet and in my lungs

when I close my eyes
oh the things I see
I am finally breaking
along the cracks this country wore in me
— the damage the darkness
of drowning in a dreamers sea
— the damage the darkness
of drowning in a dreamers sea

there is a demon that lives inside of me
and pulls me down into heaviness
and here I am under the rubble of the avalanche
caused by the slow erosion
that I let go for too long
and now I need to dig myself up
to the light of day
—the damage the darkness
of drowning in a dreamers sea

ooh —the damage the darkness (repeat)
