How long now Have I known you? I'm not sure of one thing. But your widening eyes fit me in a warmth- Treat me with a word of grace. Hold me steady and secure; When bitter words spared me nothing You assured me You allure me How long now Do you think this will last? I'm not sure of myself. But right here and now, I find you- Do you know your effect on me? Hold your tongue and my tether; When sweeter words bless my waning Will you deter me Or just defer me You're chiming bluebells And bringing closer comfort And it’s so lovely, But I can't see you every day I'm afraid that I might fall asleep And dream of you again!!!!!!!!!!!

Coffee 02:46
kelly, my doll at the coffee house I drank my way down to you clearest frames for your quiet eyes you're like a ghost when you move ~ you know me now because i know you today we held up the line out common courtesy was intimate and i tipped you a hundred percent to buy myself another sip you are standing still and i am sitting at the counter people come and we pretend we run the family store and now and then a wink on the side i dreamt we were in a movie once it's not a long-shot by now you're anything that i want you to be when none of our words will come out so i'll just take another sip standing tall so you can see me over all the pastries you glance at me when you make a joke to see if i am listening you accidentally grab my hand when you take my empty cup and then you go and fill it back up

Laying on the floor Seems all I know All I know Nothing is anymore; Anymore seems something slow When laying on the floor Living in myself See all the world All the world Everything is beautiful Beautiful Sees me distant When living in myself (When laying on the floor) How long can you gleam the skies Until your stars pearl down Wherein I catch you There I shall know you High hang those fishlines Weaving them fine Just to draw my eyes
5.
You are everything I want; You want everything I'm not-- I'd like to get closer to you. Can you take me from myself, And shiver when I melt? These days-- I'll remember them so well. Sometimes, I'm lost When I want to tell you How I'd like to be in love with you again Oh, can I sit here in your light? won't you find The care that's in my eyes/something in my eyes I don't need a moon to blame Or stars to trace your name And those leaves flutter fine from far away But I'm lost right now Cause I want to tell you That I'd like to fall in love with you again

Little Bloom 03:19
I can't even open my eyes Tethered to this body of mine Prone to failure, restless under lavender skies I can't stand to see you unwell Dressed in silence, hoped to dispel Such a sickness haunting every limb of our leaves Can a love be very long for this world? Our tiny bodies try to hold an infinite soul And maybe we're just worn a little thin for now. Our frailty measures sleep and awake Bothered bones break day in a lull But I'll carry anything serving of you To tend through tired tenor I'll find That you will be my caretaker When you feel better; Guide me through the languid and lost Can a love be very long for this world? Our tiny bodies try to hold an infinite soul Maybe you and I will outgrow our shells and resign Your little bloom will be enough to keep me on until But maybe we're just worn a little thin for now

Softer Light 06:27
Where did our souls first find their rest These words that hold in all of our breath Spoken reasons, they love to sing Of how we've wept and all we've left behind Leaving us an open room This opulence to fill us ever again She'll be a rose that will bloom every morning He'll be the one to wear her petals on his sleeve In fragrance of mercy, the soul of devotion Takes shelter in their arms Sunlight is sparkling through the leaves For a while, it's dancing on your face and hands And all of the time it took to reach us here And goodness, all the years we'll have to draw nearer still And it will be a lens for all the dust Floating by all the windows of our home Where he'll be a furnace that warms ev'ry evening And she'll be the one to keep that fire burning bright When sorrow comes reigning, the stones of that hearth will Reflect a softer light

Iridescent 01:33
you seem promising but if i followed you, how far would i fall behind? and how would you change your mind? and God Himself gave you words and let you know how much i needed them so even if you're here a spell those words are written on my heart and the way you looked at me made me dream of better days and the way i looked for You led me to a safer place

about

This collection of songs was written and recorded during a very hard year of life, although they might not at all appear to be that way in content or sound. My goal in writing for this album was to capture the things that I saw in life that kept me going-- My best friend's wedding; wanting to fall in love again after a long season of heartbreak; the kindness of friends; fond memories of a different place and time; and other things of that sort of purity.

This album is a step back from our first effort, "Cultivate" in the sense of focusing on succinct songwriting and not relying on elaborate arrangements to make the songs interesting. I sometimes think about the way I perform my songs to people in a live setting, and more often than not, it's just me and an acoustic guitar. So, in writing these songs, I was very intentional to build them with strong foundations so as to not lull people to boredom (or sleep) when I sing them, and to let them have their own atmosphere. Although, you might still fall asleep listening to this album.

All these songs and atmospheres that I've captured for myself proved to carry me out of a pretty heavy state of depression and helped me process all sorts of things I've been facing in life. I hope these songs might mean something to you in a similar capacity. Thanks for reading and listening.
