about

While writing the songs to this record, I had all of these problems coming at me and the only way I knew how to solve them was to take a deep breath, release an album, and shrug it all off by saying, "anyway"...

Track Name: Clandestine Affair
You’re a maybe, just a maybe
Your words lie on my lips so tart
But your maybe heart is a maybe start
To something I just can’t dart

Oh it seems so wrong
I can hardly disguise this
Clandestine affair
I don’t recommend advertisement
But I can’t
Pretend
You’re not there
You’re not there

I don’t know if I can handle
Taking another fall
You’re the dog that mauls
I don’t think to crawl
Til you’ve pinned me against the wall

Oh it seems so wrong
I can hardly disguise this
Clandestine affair
I don’t recommend advertisement
But I can’t
Pretend
You’re not there
You’re not there

It’s easy to fall, it’s easy to break
It’s easy to fall for you, my mistake (4X)

Oh it seems so wrong
I can hardly disguise this
Clandestine affair
I don’t recommend advertisement
But I can’t
Pretend
You’re not there
You’re not there
But I can’t
Pretend
You’re not there
You’re not there…
Track Name: Sweetpea
Don’t waste your time, I’ve moved on from your bed
My watering can is now empty, I dread
There have been other vines that I’ve often let die
But you keep me at work each try after try

You’ve hidden your seeds on the shelf
You can’t help me if you’ve lost yourself

You were right, I was wrong
You were there all along
Helping me to not wither away
You’re the sun, you’re the rain
You’re anything I say
Now we’re drowning today
Open the blinds behind your eyes
Let in the light
Center yourself around someone else
This is me saying I’m
Through with you

Day after day I live life while you pine
A tree without bark is not nature’s design
I climb fast and high in pursuit of the sky
But your branch snaps and with it I kiss sky goodbye

We put our hearts on the line
Your branch will heal in time as will mine

You were right, I was wrong
You were there all along
Helping me to not wither away
You’re the sun, you’re the rain
You’re anything I say
Now we’re drowning today
Open the blinds behind your eyes
Let in the light
Center yourself around someone else
This is me saying I’m
Through with you

You were right, I was wrong
You were there all along
Helping me to not wither away
You’re the sun, you’re the rain
You’re anything I say
Now we’re drowning today
Open the blinds behind your eyes
Let in the light
Center yourself around someone else
This is me saying I’m
Through with you
Track Name: Anyway
It’s like having brand new eyes
And though I try
I still can’t see
It’s like cutting off my hair
It should grow
Why it doesn’t I don’t know

I am going insane
This helplessness is making you to blame
I am going insane
Please cut these strings they’re keeping my heart tame

You said you’d leave behind half of your heart
I don’t care, I don’t care
Anyway, anyway
So what’s the point of you leaving if I can’t be on my own
I don’t care, I don’t care
Anyway

It’s like chewing on my nails
I fend them off
But they keep coming back
It’s like sleeping in till three
Even though the sun is out
I’m still counting sheep

I am going insane
This helplessness is making you to blame
I am going insane
Please cut these strings they’re keeping my heart tame

You said you’d leave behind half of your heart
I don’t care, I don’t care
Anyway, anyway
So what’s the point of you leaving if I can’t be on my own
I don’t care, I don’t care
Anyway

I’m singing along
Cause you’re like a song
That goes around in my head
Feed me a new line
Cause this one is fine
For anyone other than me (2X)
Oh uh oh, oh uh oh woah
Other than me (4X)

I am going insane
I am going insane
I am going insane
I am going insane
Track Name: Color Sarah
Sarah waits for sanity
Thinking of giving up

Everyone sees through blind eyes
No one knows why Sarah lives behind disguise

And she cannot grow
If she remains covered in snow
And she cannot breathe
If she and oxygen don’t agree

Color Sarah
She’ll be whatever you’d like her to be
Color Sarah
Flip through her pages and sift through your crayons
Color Sarah

Sarah waits for understanding
She is a word that’s too big for anyone to know

And she cannot grow
If she remains covered in snow
And she cannot breathe
If she and oxygen don’t agree

Red or Blue, anything will do
Red or blue color her like you (2X)
Red or blue or carnation pink
Don’t give her any time to think
Red or blue, anything will do
Red or blue, color her like you

Color Sarah
She’ll be whatever you’d like her to be
Color Sarah
Flip through her pages and sift through your crayons
Color Sarah
Color Sarah
She’ll be whatever you’d like her to be
Color Sarah
Flip through her pages and sift through your crayons
Color Sarah (4X)
Track Name: Grey
Grey is the color of your grandma’s hair
Who lives lonely in a wheelchair
And grey isn’t something that you’d wish to be
Cause grey’s not the color matched with bravery

Grey is the color of the dark storm clouds
That rain on the people in the unexpecting crowds
And grey isn’t something that you’d wish to find
Cause grey’s not the color of dauntless pride

But grey is the antidote
For self-indulgence sanctioned
By fortunate design

Good enough
This grey’s got a hold on me
Good enough
Is what I’m made out to be
Good enough
This grey has got me weak
Am I good enough
Am I good enough for me

Grey is the color of the in between
That takes on our simple everyday routine
And grey isn’t something that you’d wish to have
Cause grey’s not the color of a lily pad

But grey is the antidote
For self-indulgence sanctioned
By fortunate design

Good enough
This grey’s got a hold on me
Good enough
Is what I’m made out to be
Good enough
This grey has got me weak
Am I good enough
Am I good enough for me
