about

"Winter Solace" was written and recorded from Jan. 7 to Jan. 19, 2013 in Anna's room in Bel Air, Md. It's a collection of songs recorded in a way that I'd never recorded before, so it's a bit of an experiment from all the other things I'm working on. I took the photo that's the album art while I was flying from Minneapolis to Baltimore on Jan. 16 and the sun was setting.

Track Name: My Head
When I was a young boy I could never see me here
But now I've gone so far I'm only afraid of what I fear
But the days keep churning on and I just kept going on
Pretty soon the only thing I had to deal with was fear

I just keep on going hoping that I'll make it clear
Of my past and of my fears and be on my own man
I look to the west and I only see somewhere to go
I'll forget it all one day but I just kept my pace

When I leave here I will know that I will always be near.
Track Name: Trains
As I lie in bed to sleep
I hear the trains all roll on by
Who is tied to them?
Who is waiting on them?

You just lie there in your sleep
Your heavy, even breathing
Oblivious to what’s outside
Every time you close your eyes

When I wake up in your bed
I hear the subway rattle on
Where are they going now?
Where will they sleep tonight?

The sun cracks through the trees?
They all have all lost their leaves
But there is still hope for me
As far around as I can see

I know where I’m going to
I’ll follow the tracks to you
And from there we’ll spread our wings
Fly off to a new place

When we get there we will know
Just how far we have flown
And we know that’s left behind
It’s not much but it’s on my mind

And the days just pile on
Of moving on and moving back
There are some things I can’t forget
I hope sometimes the same’s for you

And now all I want to do
Is lie in my bed with you
And listen to all the trains
And think about where we will be.

it feels like more than that
Track Name: [redacted]
I don't want to be another footnote
I don't want to be an experiment
I don't want to just be your sidekick
I just want to be here with you.
Track Name: Wasting My Time (Erin Hanratty cover)
Baby give me a reason that would make
All the time that I've spent worth it
And that would make leaving a mistake
'Cause by now I've had all the waiting I can take

Old habits they die hard and now I wonder what am I still doing here
At the end of the day, I wanna disappear

Racking my brain for a reason to stay
I never had too much to say, I'm singing anyway
Give it up, let it go 'cause I just gotta know
Will the planets align or am I wasting my time?

I was looking for something, something real
But with you I just won't find it
'Cause you leave me nothing I can feel
And down on the ground I'm so numb to this whole deal

Old habits drag me down and now I wonder how could I be so naive
At the end of the day, this ain't what I need

Racking my brain for a reason to stay
I never had too much to say, I'm singing anyway
Give it up, let it go 'cause I just gotta know
Will the planets align or am I wasting my time?

Racking my brain for a reason to stay
I never had too much to say, I'm singing anyway
Give it up, let it go 'cause I just gotta know
Will the planets align or am I wasting my time?

Racking my brain for a reason to stay
I never had too much to say, I'm singing anyway
Give it up, let it go 'cause I just gotta know
Will the planets align or am I wasting my time?
Track Name: Yr Side
I don't know you that well, but I hope you can tell just how far I will go to be by yr side.
