about

During the summer of 2013, I recorded this album in my tiny tree house of an apartment in the city of Ferndale. I want to express a very special thanks to my family and friends who endlessly support me in my varied creative endeavors. I love and value all of you so very much. Enjoy!

Track Name: Awfully Glad
I've been fightin' a good fight
I've been tryin' to do whats right
It's a battle that ya have
When ya know that things get bad (x 2)

And every morning I do wake
With an enthusiastic taste
For some dew upon my skin
For the sun to take me in (x 2)

Squeeze the sad from your eye lids, darlin'
Find a map, making your long legs start walkin'
Stop and rest near a tall tree that's holdin'
A birds nest and it's all just beginning now

There are problems that we face
Makes us want to quit the race
Got our baggage strapped on tight
Got our flashlights on at night

Do we really need that light?

Squeeze the sad from your eye lids, darlin'
Find a map, making your long legs start walkin'
Stop and rest near a tall tree that's holdin'
A birds nest and it's all just beginning now

I have held a lot of it
Try and push the darkness with in
Light a match, watch it all go up in smoke
Breathe in it, Exhale, it's shiny ghost
And it goes

I've been fightin' a good fight
I've been tryin' to do whats right
It's a battle that ya have
When ya know that things get bad (x 2)

And I'm awfully, awfully glad
For there's learnin' to be had
Track Name: Busy City
Busy City

I'm trying to stay safe
And warm in this place
Of peace, solace and grace

But it get's lonely in my home
Can't wait, til I can go and roam
in the city, in the city

And I'm so tired I can barely move my feet
My legs feel like they're bags of meat
I wanna go to a spot, on a street
And just lay there in the busy, busy, city, city.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Put my books in this bag of mine
Ride my bike to the corner of Woodward and Nine
Try to see what I can't find

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

And I know it's harder to go
Get up and face the cars and homes
It can get dizzy

But it gets lonely in my home
Can't wait til I can go and roam in the city
In the city

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Feel It In My Gut
I feel it in my gut
Makes me want t
Track Name: Been Thinkin'
Been Thinkin'

I, I've been thinkin' about you in the night time when I'm tired
It gets lonely all by myself, boy ya keep me inspired
And I'll pick a flower
And I'll put in my hair
But it doesn't not stay there

No, no, no, no

When it gets warmer, can we go camping and we'll build a bonfire
It's a pleasure to lay here
And to listen to the choir of birds
And I beckon one from a tree
But it don't land near me

No, oh

And things seem better, wiser in this state of mind
It's getting easier to let all the sad fly by
'Cause it's not needed, no
I do not need it
Mmm

I, I've been thinkin' about you in the night time when I'm tired
It gets lonely all by myself, boy ya keep me inspired
And I'll pick a flower
And I'll put in my hair
But it doesn't not stay there

I, I've been thinkin' about you in the nighttime when I'm tired
It gets lonely all by myself, boy ya keep me inspired
And I'll pick a flower
And I'll put in my hair
But it doesn't not stay there
And I guess I'll just wear my hair today
Track Name: Loretta
I am, oh
I'm roasting in this oven of a home
And it's not like it's uncomfortable

'Cause like Loretta I am warm (x2)
Like Loretta I am calm

The carpets here are stained
And there's powder to keep it at bay
But it's all apart of the decay
It's okay, it's my place
It's okay

'Cause like Loretta I am strong (x2)
Like Loretta I am calm

I'm building a nest of the things that I fine
Collecting gold leaves and pine cones in the corners of my mind
And the sun it does shine, it always seems to shine
Through the blinds
Is all of this fine?
I think it's fine.

Cause like Loretta, I am strong
Like Loretta, I am calm
Like Loretta, I am warm
I am calm
Like Loretta
I am strong
Track Name: Springtime Skies
Can you listen to me clear
'Cause I've been waiting for it dear
I didn't know where it'd be
Until I lived my life more freely

Now I'm not afraid to talk about my day
'Cause I, I wanna tell it and I'd like you right here next to me
And I could talk for four hours or for more
Or I can just let it be

And it's right on time
Foggy mornings and rainy springtime skies
Still I, I feel fine
And I don't need any signs

I've been singing really clearly
'Cause I've been feelin' really dearly
I didn't know who I'd be until I lived my life more fiercely

And it's right on time
Foggy mornings and rainy springtime skies
Still I, I feel fine
And I don't need any signs
No, I don't need any signs
'Cause I've already changed my mind

Oooh oooh
