prelude. 03:39
open up the dreams you had once locked away find love on the sidewalk where the shadows like to play these words are not ones of hope nor are they words of fright they are the words that lurk in the corners of the summer night where silver strings dance with a whisper of song in the light of the strawberry moon i knew you were long gone and i knew everything was wrong

part i. 03:44
I sat beside you on your bed We whispered things We wish we hadn’t said My words bled I now know I can’t trust my thoughts They spread like wildfire once they’ve caught I wish that they would stop They keep my heart distraught I know that there is hope for this too Why did you leave so soon? For a moment your heart was in bloom I lost the rhythm of the days The pace that kept the dark at bay The meadow rue did sway Beneath the sycamore in May Down Cedar Lane my eyes did lay Upon the words you’d never say Oh, furrow deep my longing By the morning you’ll be gone Don’t go now Will I see you again? Don’t go now I’ll find the words To be a friend Don’t go now Wish for a different end Don’t go now I’ll find the words To make amends

part ii. 04:08
I’ll never forget your eyes It wouldn’t be right Counting stars as they whispered goodnight Silver strings that tied your dreams to mine The morning comes into view And you leave with the moon June read like a half-written poem A love scattered and strewn I’ll always be a regret, A burdening sunset You said I couldn’t make more of a mess Than what’s already inside your head I love you, for your words are a song That say I could do no wrong But you always look to the ground Like the answer is written there somehow The waves swept me away When I couldn’t depart From the love that choked With hands swollen and red Your ship sank my heart Oh, how it tore me apart A forest fire started by a spark

outro. 04:25
Someday We will sail across Find the moments lost Dissolve beyond me Darling You’re the ghost of my dreams And I need to confront you For you haunt my heart deep Somehow These stars intertwined We would be strangers Tangled still in separate lives Adrift Among the radio waves Dancing tired in the deep blue A moment lost in your gaze I sold myself To the strawberry moon Bought silver strings To tie myself to you But they fell apart With each tired minute You were there And then you disappeared How is it That you make my heart twist When I know You don’t really exist

about

This EP is a collection of piano and ambient compositions I worked on over the summer. They are intended to be simple, sad, and surreal. I worked with piano, synths, accordion, guitar, and recording other ambient sounds to compose the pieces on this EP.
