1.
we're moving, over heatherfields blossoming the sun low, about to set It's slowly going under and rising back up again never ending ways, in a perfect violet haze we glide, in cycles side by side on the carousel we ride the scenes passing by as we slowly spin clockwise only to find with every loop, a similar world all new merry go round, round the tide guide us along the waves of time oh never stop to feed our fire, still our hunger, stir our souls guide us along the waves of time and so, once again the night fell a looping carousel ever returning dusk keeping both of us under its spell back to late summerhaze, in present perfect tense merry go round, round the tide guide us along the waves of time oh never stop to feed our fire, still our hunger, stir our souls guide us along the waves of time

And so the story goes the walls you'd seemed to melt like snow are pulled back up and I withdraw I've come to know it well here on the inside of my shell where the air is different, emptier as I watch you go a hazy, fairytale-like glow pulls up like a blanket, slow Gold in the air, so rare Make worthwhile all we bare Truth or dare, nothing to spare What do we care. You take along a piece of me everytime you leave leaving me a little less complete every corner in this town reminds me of you somehow though I've lived here ages before we'd ever met I track the traces that you left I think of words I left unsaid the image blurs in my head Gold in the air, so rare Make worthwhile all we bare Truth or dare, nothing to spare What do we care.

You set the pace With your 4am dance in the rain When you called on the gale to play The sky was a tangle of golden lace We were out in the fire Is that where we'll stay? Forever chasing the storm In a garden we never made Acting on plans that were never laid Held in a promise we cannot break CHORUS High above the fray I sing your name And whatever come what may Remember me this way Out in that night we invited the lightning to strike was it all just a trick of light? Exposing a glimpse of a storyline it won't leave my mind Word to the wise how to play under trembling skies in a game where rules don't apply to win or to lose an illusive line caught in a promise we can't deny CHORUS High above the fray win or lose I sing your name Oh whatever come what may I will remember us this way

about

I'm excited to bring you Chapter One.

This is a collection of 3 dreamy folktronica songs that each carry a sense of weightlessness.

1. Merry Go Round
2. Truth or Dare
3. Above the Fray

Released in the spring of 2020, Chapter One is a collection of 3 songs that came out of a messy & beautiful songmaking-process, where I've been trying to ride on intuition only. Pushing myself not to conform. Ever. Sailing the inner compass every step of the way.
