about

Thank you all for listening to my first release, White River. Making this ep and starting to play shows in Tampa has been a great experience with a lot of new friends. For all of those whom have helped me along the way, gave me inspiration by sharing the stage with me, or listened to my music in some small cafe or on a stage that was way too big for these small boots, you will always have a little part of my heart with you. Enjoy these songs and live your life with the grandest of love.

Track Name: White River
Sitting next to the chestnut tree
Where we lost all our thoughts to the emptiness
When we were younger we had such burdens on the horizon
But now that we're here, they've been lost in the murals on the wall

Because we are fathers and sons,
Lovers and poets
Ageless to come
Oh, we are

Our love is a tree planted when we first laid our eyes
On this unspeakable idea we found in the world
And the fruits of our endeavors flow through the river that runs
With the wind through our hair

But now these words are lost in the bricks that we loved
With jilted lovers crying their hearts out
Like all things, this will fall apart, left stranded by the hurricane
That ran through our house

Because we are fathers and sons,
Followers and leaders
We are broken and repaired,
Torn from each other
We are strong and we are weak,
But oh my son
We are dancers
And this is a trial

It runs, this river we're in
Gleaming white over the mountains within
It runs, this river we're in
Gleaming white over the mountains within
Ourselves

Because we are fathers and sons,
Lovers and poets
We are broken and repaired,
Torn from each other
We have guilt and we have shame,
But oh my son
We are dancers

Now that the past has gone
And the horizon is at our heels
This tree that we planted has rotted out long ago
But our love still breathes
It still breathes
Track Name: A Heavy Tow
You hit me with a silence
It drove me to your door
I came in like a knife
I had to find out where you've been missing all these years

It was a heavy tow, a heavy tow
On my mind

I know that love is a dying breed
But we are creatures of the heart and we must fight
So why did you run when you found out
That there was still some of this feeling left around

But you've been gone far too long
For anyone
You've been hiding out in your fears
In this lonely crevice
When you find yourself in better place
I've got a lot on my mind to tell you
Come clean...

You'll never know
How it would have been
Looking back
At all the split ends
Everything that was right
Gave our hearts a chance
But this heavy tow on your mind
Held up the fence

You'll never know
How it would have been
Looking back
At all the split ends
Everything that was wrong
Kept your mind from love
But this heavy tow on your mind
Help up the fence

But where is love
After 4 long years
I missed you
Track Name: You Are Love
In time you will grow
And bring down
Know that
You always would

And don't, don't be scared
Don't be scared to speak loud
You flower
You flower, you will bloom
But now that we evaporate
And leave this world
For something better
Though dark, we will
Have our peace

Because you are love
Because you are love
You are a funny thing

And your eyes
They stare straightforward
They pierce the very core of this skin
And I can't believe how you've struck me
So quickly and without a trace
Every word
Through tripping over the last
Is pushing us onward
And upward
