Standalone 2016 single inspired by my closest friend; written, performed, and produced in its entirety by yours truly.


I'm feeling like a fraud
Behind the looking glass
Of these azure eyes

For what was given to me freely
I do not know that I deserve
By my own greed I am perturbed

In my mind a whirlwind of questions
(What does it mean? What does it mean?)
What does any of it mean, anyway?

And though I want to do right by you,
My convictions are ambiguous at best
These searing doubts I do detest

Your soothing balm
My sinner's song
A seeming calm
Right before the storm (takes us)

I should've realized
My words carried weight
Before unleashing tongue

They'll burrow in your mind
Then consume you twice
When I leave tonight

Everywhere I look,
There you are
Planting whispers in my ear

And over this distance
I see your lambent rays
But cannot feel their warmth

I am so drawn
To your siren call
Even though I know
About the jutting rocks (below)

Once upon a time I had longed to find
My own manic pixie dream-girl
Then you turned the tides, and redefined
That old fabricated lie

And if I could, I would cross all the lines
To merge the gap between us
Intertwine and tie the ribbons of our lives
And end this great divide

That moment when
The music stops -- !
...this day exists in silence

Like darkened spirits,
We are running through
The shadows of the bright lights

Many bridges we may yet burn
But away the past I can't turn
Although this road may lead us to ruin
My lone want is to share it with you
