about

The record is titled, BLOOM. It's about life, death, love, hate, friends, enemies, being young and getting old... It's about acknowledging the past, embracing the present, and facing the future...It's about learning, how to feel whole again, and how to grow.

Track Name: DAYS
i spend my nights and i spend my days sitting here in the heat wave. i don’t think that i am creative anymore. i think that my ideas are always wrong. but i keep finding my way and it looks like a street unpaved. i need a fire. burn me alive here.
Track Name: Hear Yr Voice
you found yr way out. there is an ocean. there is a science to it. you found the golden gates. you didnt need to know it. it took yr hands and pulled you in. why do you leave me broken? y’re taking the greatest risk. put it all on yr shoulders and it ripped you out. i was yr youngest child, so you probably treated me with so much more love than i need. why do you leave me broken? i just wanna hear yr voice again…but i can’t.
Track Name: Fruit of my Love
i wish i had a better memory, so i could see you in my dreams. i wish i could see you when i sleep, so it wouldn’t be as real as it is. i wish i saw you walking again. i would take yr pain and put it to my head. i wish i could hear you yell again. i’d say “fuck you”, but i love you again. you tell me, “y’re the fruit of my love that there’s no one here but us so, carry all yr love. say what you feel often don’t deny the way you felt. don’t let this feel as real as it is.” i was afraid of losing my heart. i was afraid, but now you’re gone.
Track Name: Christina
i watched the clock for a second. the right hand was moving so fast. i couldn’t stop it with all of my might. well, i’m looking for that feeling to pass. i found a friend in you. when we were just 16, you sewed my pants and i loved you. we were young, we were crazy. we were dumb in a small town. when i met you girl i saw yr house. we had 2 friends who were in love but, who knew what they’re dreaming of? remember going to yr house? remember sitting all around? the day you sewed my pants and i hurt yr leg…id give anything for one more day. all of yr friends they are here. me, you and all of them. we grew up and grew apart. i found out you were in love. i saw you on yr wedding day. i was proud you had made it safe. you came up a winters night. we were just 3 friends passing time. it was like nothing had changed, i still remember yr last name. you called me up, the dead of fall. you told me news i didn’t want to know. i had a feeling it would be bad but, i never expected that. i tell you girl, “i’m so sorry”. because, no one deserves to feel that weak. yet, here i am wasting my life. i can’t look at myself, ill be alright. i left home when i was young. forgot about the things id done. forgot about the things i want. forgot the town we were in love. everybody is changing. either getting married, getting kids, getting strong, getting sick...i can’t believe in all of this.
Track Name: CHANGE
i’m beginning to notice as seasons change, i keep changing my age and my fate. my body is older now and that i can’t change. i’m keeping it going now, keep bearing the weight. i’ll be fine, i’ll be alright. i’ll be right here into the night. winter it’s lovely but it kills my bones. it’s making me lonely so cover me close. the summer is tempting me, it’s taking my hand. it makes me feel whole no matter if i am. i keep telling myself, “fall is a changing time.” the smell in the air and the leaves on my mind. say it again, “in fall, i will be alright.” the smell in the air and the leaves on my mind.
Track Name: Lauren
when we were younger you were the worst friend. you made me feel smaller than i already know i am. i hated you so much for making me lie to everybody every night. but you are my sister, now you’re a best friend. i welcome you home and see you when you go. and on yr wedding day i’ll be here. i’ll be listening to all the noises in my ears. on yr wedding day i’ll tell mom that you found love. thank you for dinner. thank you for this bed. thank you for being there to kill the voice inside my head. i’m only a phone call at any time. we’ll stick together until we die.
Track Name: 4th of July
i was born on the 4th of july. no i wasn’t i am telling lies. i was born in the midst of a storm, to a family, where i got my name from. i was born with determined eyes but i lost them, inside a goodbye. i was born with my own two hands, to make something better than i am. and i was born with my own two ears, to hear everything i don’t wanna hear. they give me the strength i need to write it down and sing honestly. i was born with a great escape plan. drawing maps under the house where me and friends could run around and leave this. ‘cause we had nowhere else to go. i was born in mysterious ways, because you didn’t love him and she never said to stay. i was born never feeling safe. so i’m leaving this time today. i was born with my hands untied, but i will lose them each year that i fake love and fake fate with fake friends that i hate. buy fake phones with fake dollars. live in fake homes so why bother? i was born for a great escape…
Track Name: Is This The End?
take off my shoes and breathe. the day is new and i’ll be okay. leave me open i feel alive. i don’t need you by my side. is this the end? is this what it looks like? is this the end? a new beginning? is this what it feels like? no more you were wrong. no more you were right. not a care at all. let the season come to life.
Track Name: BLOOM
take me to where i believe i am from, dear. put me back right in the ground here. its easier, here comes the sun. i’ll bloom from the very first sight of the sun. then, grow up or hide in the clouds i remember when i was young. you’re gonna waste yr time trying to stay in line. so i need to give you some advice. i watched my mother die with family by her side and i realized life is too short, so let go. bloom from the very first sight of the sun. i’m alive now. i’ve become.
