about

A split with my friend Stampeter. If you want to hear more of her music, check out her bamdcamp page: stampeter.bandcamp.com

I wrote the songs on my half of the split in my dorm room on an old african hand piano I found in my closet this summer. I hope you like them.

Track Name: The Stars and the Sun
You, were not meant to be
on the ground, but in the sea
where you were found.
If I had a wish, you’d been born a fish.
You’d be swimming in the sea,
afloat easily.

But you know, it wasn’t mean to be.

Instead, you walk on the ground.
The people all around,
if they knew what you see,
they wouldn’t want (want) to be.

You try,
so damn hard
every day
to make it seem
like you’re okay

But if they saw what you see inside
They would want to die.

Always, fifteen minutes late
full of hate for everything
Cause to you it seems
That the world isn’t fair
And you think no-one cares

But I do

I think you’re greater than the sum of what you’re made from
And just like your fathers, you will return to the
Stars and the Sun
Track Name: Watching You Watching Me
Watching you watching me, falling
out of touch out of love, talking
at me but not to me, clearly
something’s wrong in this dear.

Cause I know it’s impossible
and I know, It’s incredible
and I know, you’re not stopping,
for me.

Cause I know it’s impossible
And I know it’s incredible
And I know, you’re not stopping for me

Watching you watching me, falling
Out of touch out of love, talking
At me but not to me, clearly
Something’s wrong in this dear.
Track Name: So If You Love Me
So if you love, just write me a letter
If you love me, just write me a note
Cause, I want to hear from you
I want to remember those hands that the letter drew

So if you want to leave, just go just go.
But if you want to stay, you’ll always have home,

because
I can’t love you, like any other would do
I can’t love you, in the ways that you want me to

So if you love me, just write me a letter
And if you want to leave, just take everything

Cause my heart, wasn’t meant to break like this
my heart, crushing slowly into bits
my heart, wasn’t meant to break like this
my heart, cracking slowly in two parts
my heart
