about

CLICK ON INDIVIDUAL TRACKS FOR MORE INFO

All songs were written and recorded in my bedroom
(Not Enough Room Records)
These songs are a reflection of past relationships.
There’s so much emotion that goes into our thoughts but often we say nothing at all and miss out on opportunities. My biggest fear is not taking chances and failing at what I don’t love or want.
These songs could have been louder/more work put into them but yea… enjoy!
(recommend playing at night/driving)

Track Name: I AM CARLOS THE DWARF
LYRICS

"...A boy? Do you think there would have been more opportunities, do you think uh...

...If I grew up a boy my dad would have been ecstatic. Because he wanted boys and he had three girls. He thought my sister was going to be a boy that's why he treated her like a boy. I think that as far as in my time period growing up, boys were toughened up, you know, probably would have been military, you know, even if it was only a four year hitch. But you know probably would have been either, either decide in a career and go to college or military and have that, for me feels like to have that initial discipline... And probably would have been, obviously if I went to college I would have stuck it out and got my degree and probably be, you know, CEO of business somewhere, for a couple of important reasons in mind, could have gone on to a couple of different places, but probably being able to have a little bit of a bigger picture of the world 'cause i think that men have a tendency to kind of see the world, you know, for what it is, see the big picture that's going on out there, they have a lot of really great ideas about where they think, you know, how they fit into, and how to make that work. I think that women are a little bit more narrow minded, they, I don't know if it's because of our nurture and nature, you know, we tend to focus on what's here..."


And I sat on the backs of trucks
Making plans of the future for us
And you were right next to me
From what I can remember
And this prison won't hold me forever
And you won't aid this endeavor
And it's all over
But tonight, we fell asleep.

And these parking lots
Were filled with people once
They had dreams just like us
Their lives got busy
And they had more things to worry about

So tell me growing old gets easy
That people become more needy
And fluent in complaining about the things they want
The things they have but it's broken, but it's broken

So let's lay here for a while
I hear the shower in the distance
With some faint piano
Let's listen to our thoughts
Let's turn off the radio

(And) I won't posses you but I want your time
I don't need a guarantee but someone to rely one
Track Name: EVIL THINGS (PROM KIDS SPLIT)
LYRICS

(And) You were less stressed last night
When we were stoned out of our minds
Do you remember me
Or was I just a dream
I feel you touch me and I see
All the evil things we could be
(But) don't put up borders
Stop lying to me

But keep close, don't look back
We'll miss them, we miss them
And take time, you always said
Never gonna give, we're never gonna shut down
You think this is winning
(And) I'll prove you wrong
Take your hand in my own
We cross the streets so quickly
Keep drinking like we're never getting home

Why is it I can't remember your face
Are we always this high when we meet
We still get out point across
Two bodies run to the streets
Run to the streets
Whipped by the wind
Our shoes slow us down
I bum another cigarette
I've got to make this one count

And we are one, for the moment, for now
Remember to call me and I'll remember you, somehow

But keep close, don't look back
We'll miss them, we miss them
And take time, you always said
Never gonna give, we're never gonna shut down
You think this is winning
(And) I'll prove you wrong
Take your hand in my own
We cross the streets so quickly
Keep drinking like we're never getting home
Track Name: IWishTheyWouldPutOnSlowSongsAtParties
LYRICS

I saw you in Wichita
It's where I fell in love
I saw you standing there
And I wanted to ask you out
Then I noticed
You weren't looking at me at all
That's where I fall

And I came back to a place
Where I could remember your face
Walking down those isles
Wearing that black dress
I was so peaceful
I didn't want to make a mess of things and now

I can only dream about you
And all the things I didn't say
And all the things i wanted to
And now it's all gettin' in the way
It's gettin' in the way...
(repeats)
It's gettin' in the way...

I will never forget a mother age thirty-through...

"And it's just me and one other person here so if you wanted to swing in and hang out I would totally not be opposed. Um, so, and then afterwards if you wanted to hang out for just a short bit I can, and you know, we can go to the pond if you'd like or whatever, or you know, or anything but ah, you can stick around while I close to if you want so, ok um, you can call me back on this number though, ok, aright, bye..."
Track Name: FIRST NIGHT
LYRICS

"So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m saying, I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it. My father could have been a great comedian, but he didn’t believe that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant, and when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job and our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love."

Don't call me "hun" unless you mean it
I can take this as a joke but underneath I fell it
As something more then this
I can see us workin' out
We don't have a lot of time and we're always filled with doubt
Focus on my eyes it's how I know you're here
Tell me something funny, talk dirty in my ear
Get close, get physical, so I can smell your hair
Leave your sent on my pillow
So when you leave, you're still there

Let's show off our tattoos tonight
If it's to hot to keep these pants on
If I take them off, you gonna' be alright
Not enough sleep for the both of us
Keep talking, tell me something so I can stay up
Sharing information no one knows
This is what love means
Your body comes closer as I go
Taking it all in to end the scene
My scent on your pillow fades away
Tomorrow we'll wake up with two headaches
Why does work always get in the way
(And ) You can still talk when I have nothing to say

Cross - repeated twice

"Focus on my eyes it's how I know you're here
Tell me something funny, talk dirty in my ear
Get close, get physical, so I can smell your hair
Leave your sent on my pillow
So when you leave, you're still there"

"Let's show off our tattoos tonight
If it's to hot to keep these pants on
If I take them off, you gonna' be alright
Not enough sleep for the both of us
Keep talking, tell me something so I can stay up"

LYRICS

*Intro that dies

Cold air hits the ground
(And) I wake up and there's no one to be found
The shower burns my skin
So hot but I still get in
(And) You could have stayed the night
You were my queen and the time felt right

I walked the back path to school
Remember(ed) how we use to hold hands
Winter it came so fast
And it separated them

And I feel like I'm dying
And I feel like we're dead
Doesn't mean we weren't trying
All of our thoughts just stayed in our head

Tell me what's on your mind
Or are you quiet all the time
Why do we filter all of our thoughts
Fear of being alone or being lost

Tell me what's on your mind
Or are you quiet all the time
Why do we filter all of our thoughts
Fear of being alone or being lost, or being lost, or being lost...
