about

Influenced by tears,temper tantrums, the human heart, quiet mornings, good coffee, snuggles, imperfections, unconditional love, pen and paper, gin, cool showers, keeping warm, learning to play the ukulele over a three day car drive, sunsets, dancing, being twisted and turned, surviving a broken heart...

Special thanks to my parents--for letting me hole up in their basement drinking boxed wine from a mug while writing furiously in my journal, to the rest of my fam & friends for picking up the pieces and loving me through (I wanna name you all individually but this would get super long and I'd likely leave people out and feel bad later), Aidan for listening to shoddy phone recordings and connecting me with Jesse, Jesse for recording, O'haara for the remixes and touch ups, Sofia & Koren...for giving me a reason to wake up in the morning, and to you for listening. <3

Track Name: Heartstop
heartstop. beat so fast
only boy i ever loved gave up too soon
you forgot who we were
break through we want to be free

i jumped and you let go
free falling into the unknown
rest in uncertainty
i can be
with or without you

you may never know what you gave up
but to me it is quite clear
you thought you deserved more
and i thought i deserved us
break through

i jumped and you let go
free falling into the unknown
rest in uncertainty
i can be
with or without you

the lies i let myself believe
the lies you told i choose to forgive
we were preparing for this all along
could've taken my hand but you're just not strong
enough is enough
restore our peace
i withdrew my roots and i am free

i jumped and you let go
free falling into the unknown
rest in uncertainty
i can be
with or without you
Track Name: Spark My Heart
spark my heart loved you so big
my love was more than a theory word
i give i gave you took you take

i flowed i froze i freeze i crack
shatter break you put me through the fire
melted mist and vapour
burn i hurt run freely i am water
i am light
in love

let you inside through the hurt
stare dig and push deep
watching you explode
unravel inside of each other
as we hid between the sheets
i give i gave you took you take

i flowed i froze i freeze i crack
shatter break you put me through the fire
melted mist and vapour
burn i hurt run freely i am water
i am light
in love

spark my heart blank space so clean
i can love so big again
walk forward to the light
and you'll still take and take and take
but not from me
and i'll still give and give and give
just not to you

i flowed i froze i freeze i crack
shatter break you put me through the fire
melted mist and vapour
burn i hurt run freely i am water
i am light
in love

spark my heart blank space so clean
Track Name: Make It Right
lay me down
flowers and squares of disconnect connect
open legged gave you a taste
and waved my white flag

when i'm dying in your dark side
you're blinded by my bright light
can't make you see
when you've stood in the cold
and my warmth does more harm than good
i'm your recurrent dream
retreat from your shadows
eyes wide shut

making bacon make it right
i've no appetite for you now
you cut me down and build me up
i'm better off on my own

when i'm dying in your dark side
you're blinded by my bright light
can't make you see
when you've stood in the cold
and my warmth does more harm than good
i'm your recurrent dream
retreat from your shadows
eyes wide shut

do whatever it takes to make it right
except for what is right
that piece you held is getting smaller
with every move you make
and every tear we drop

when i'm dying in your dark side
you're blinded by my bright light
can't make you see
when you've stood in the cold
and my warmth does more harm than good
i'm your recurrent dream
retreat from your shadows
eyes wide shut
Track Name: Catch My Breath
he took away my breath
made time stand still with hearts above my head
and then he took it all away
i ate all of his words
brought back up so they're my own
crawled out from beneath him
rubbed the bruises off my back

alone in the lonely
my heart black as soot
i'll rise from the ashes
and dance on my grave
sleep in your friendly shade
pull me in so safe and sound
let me rest catch my breath

he killed me oh so quickly
i'm killing us so gently now
face down in the water
until we no longer move
when it all comes back to him
like underwear and coffee cups
here in the familiar i die daily

alone in the lonely
my heart black as soot
i'll rise from the ashes
and dance on our grave
sleep in your friendly shade
pull me in so safe and sound
let me rest catch my breath

don't wanna be your fall back girl
no call back girl won't show you a good time
so i write myself a new heart
replace my sad with magic
and make him disappear
if it gets too dark won't ya please turn on a light


alone in the lonely
my heart black as soot
i'll rise from the ashes
and dance on our grave
sleep in your friendly shade
pull me in so safe and sound
let me rest catch my breath

and i'd burn my eyes out
and i'd peel my skin off
and unfeel oh unfeel it all
if i could just be brand new

he took away my breath
made time stand still with hearts above my head
and then he took it all away
Track Name: Wear Me Down
wear me down
punch a hole in my belly
break my heart apart in my chest

double back double over
your web of lies

shoot my heart three times over
shoot your foot three times again

double back double over
your web of lies

wear me down
find all the pieces
kiss my mouth
remember your home
