about

A song a day for a year starting December 16th, 2011 December 15th, 2011. There are fourteen volumes of 25 songs each. This is volume three. You can download the albums for free by putting "0" in the "name your price". I'm not looking to make any money from any of this. It is completely for personal growth and my need to share the music that I make. Thank you for being apart of this project by listening.

the sadness
in their eyes
when the sun
went down

it's something
we all must
get used to

but never will
but never will and even still it sinks away

no hope
all gone
lost wars
black none

you must forget the past
be happy
you must
be happy
Track Name: 02-05-12
all of the weight
into the sea
terrible heat
forgotten grief

conquered the world
conquered the birds
conquered the wind
conquered his sins

i need some help
i need the mend
carry me home
timeless old friend
i need some help
i need the mend
carry me home
timeless old friend

can't separate
the prison the free
the lost memories
the hot summer trees

defeated the world
defeated the birds
defeated the wind
defeated his sins

i need some help
i need the mend
carry me home
timeless old friend
Track Name: 02-06-12
tiny little things
off in the distance
forgive me if you can
i ran from wisdom

a shot in the dark from a man with an ivory cane
Track Name: 02-07-12
the white sky covers the world
i sit in bed all day
watching the birds with a sore throat

what is the nature of nature
everything dies once a year
what is the nature of nature
to live like a stone in the winter

never forget the day we met
we held the morning like we were from the future
growing fonder of the sun
we talked like we knew each other in the past
Track Name: 02-08-12
poison air
you gave me so much comfort long ago but now your
wasting away all the more
wasting away all the more


all of a sudden i feel like a child in the wars of discomfort and beauty


grace me with a passion for the holy things above and i will
fly around through the air
fly around through the air
Track Name: 02-09-12
and you might be wrong about the way things moves
and you might be wrong about my heart
it's days like this i wish i had a car
it's days like this i wish you werent so far

but that's how the dice rolled out
yeah that's how it all went down

you sent me calling for the sun
and when the night had begun
im a paralized child
on the grass in the lawn
Track Name: 02-10-12
i prefer
the trees and the grass
to the cold
hard sidewalks

falling in love with a demon
falling in love with a mirror
falling in love with a feeling
falling in love with a fear

slowing down
thinking more
about the windows
about the doors

getting less and
wanting more is
getting more
and wanting less


falling in love with a demon
falling in love with a mirror
falling in love with a feeling
falling in love with a fear
Track Name: 02-11-12
lost in the snow
and i think that im drowning of
happiness white beautiful coldness
satisfy
all of the things i need
all of the things i need
not for long
not for long
not for long
not for long

all of the things that you knew me for in the past now are gone
replaced with happiness sadness
watching the morning come
wide awake
im wide awake
Track Name: 02-12-12
i cant seem to stop
thinking of you now
even in my dreams
every night it seems

what am i to think
if all i ever dream
are cherished memories
and things i'll never have

you can have a heart
you can feel the world
dont forget my eyes
i wont forget your eyes
Track Name: 02-13-12
i found my soul in your eyes
look at it there
all beauty and blue
to walk away from myself and you
lost on opposite sides of the world
i'll rest in your eyes
until you close them for forever
like the way the road looked
when your eyes left mine
for the first time
for the last time
as the strength in my wrist leaves me
while i strum and strum and strum
i think of you
i close my eyes
and i disappears
Track Name: 02-14-12
wintery streets are fleeting
melting away in the day
i'd love to see the sunrise
but i miss it every time

all i can say is that i went away
and i found a small clue on the road
a small little note that i wonder who wrote
so it goes so it goes so it goes

a grandfather clock in the next room
follows along with the world
but i stay in bed with the dreams that i'm fed
and i wonder if anything's real

all i can say is that i went away
and i found a small clue on the road
a small little note that i wonder who wrote
so it goes so it goes so it goes
Track Name: 02-15-12
ive been feeling lonely
but ive got the sun
we're futuristic prophets
before the day is done

ive been feeling lonely
but ive got the sun
we're futuristic prophets
standing on the sun
Track Name: 02-16-12
falling asleep I'm
falling asleep i know

only in dreams
only in dreams i hold

hold all
be all
see all

fall into dreams
i fall into dreams it seems
every time i close my eyes

why won't you love me
oh why won't you love me
it seems
you always do
in my dreams

falling asleep
to come back to you
in my mind
i unwind
from time and space and love
and all the faces
that i saw below above
sideways left right up and down

falling asleep

waiting for death now
im waiting for life now
anyone can come to me
and set me free
but i'd rather be

falling asleep
im falling asleep
and i saw the doors
open wide all the windows too
all of the red and blue
colors came streaming
out my mouth and eyes and ears and hair
i was falling asleep
i was falling asleep

falling asleep
im falling asleep
cant you see
you'll have to come back another day
if you want to see me
go away
Track Name: 02-17-12
quiet
quiet
silent walk
carry on
fending off the end
the end
the end
i knew the end
i saw it in the eyes of the wild

shipping dock
spider webs
take me to the edge
of how i thought the world worked
uncertainly the happiest
i've ever been

the animals left this place long ago
to take silent walks with me at midnight

deepness darkness
wild night
dancing eyes
i've never seen
the stars
the night
not until the moment
the moment
the moment i felt infinity
in my tiny shaking body
Track Name: 02-18-12
sealed by ice bordered by land
then they disappear in the white hot sand

right into another world
unaware danger hidden hand

and now i sit where we once did
in the winter crevice where we hid

i grab at our memories
where can i find you in the blue morning

gone gone gone
oh
gone gone
so far gone
Track Name: 02-19-12
where were you when i
wrote
all of us in stone
homes

getting it together
for forever

all of us wrote in
stone
where are you when i need home
Track Name: 02-21-12
i want it
i need it
you have it
i know

i feel it
i breath
i am it

i want more

oh god
i cant live like this anymore
i want to be free

someday i'll know you
someday i'll find you
and then you'll show me
why anything matters at all
Track Name: 02-22-12
trying to be kind
Track Name: 02-23-12
oh
i see the waves
i see the waves every night
in my dreams
every night in my dreams


you see
here in the day
here in the day in a way
i cant see whats in front of me

i scrape up whats here
whats left of me
and i take a great bow
moving on to the edge of the earth

i found
i found a great new leaf
a great new leaf to turn on for a while
for a while
for a while
Track Name: 02-24-12
the darker times
oh stay away
you've had your line
and now you're being brave

falling over hard times
in the winter makes the spring
come
Track Name: 02-25-12
the reason it felt like a movie
was simply because we were acting

i've seen this all before
the sunlight
the opening door

tired morning creatures
i'll fight for you once more

the reason it feels like dancing
is cause you never stop moving your feet

i've seen this all before
the sunlight
the opening door

tired morning creatures
i fight for you once more

i could take care of you
if you'd only listen

i could take you away
if you'd only listen

close your eyes
free your mind
Track Name: 02-26-12
im falling with the wind
the beginning of the end
golden arc of mine

help me pass the time
got a lot on my mind
and you were never that kind

im falling with the wind
the breeze in my hair
my finger tips numb

now i hit the ground
now i hit the ground
Track Name: 02-27-12
tired as grass
blowing over
a needed escape from the wind

look up at the stars
and you'll see where the day goes
none of our stories have ends




they're coming of age in an over sized cage
they're taking the backs of their chairs off for fire
and sweeping the ashes off old wooden floor
i wondered what happened there sometime before
Track Name: 02-28-12
in hidden attics
i search the boxes
finding the answers

walking quickly
through the vast lines
to the endless
to the cross roads

stumbling along the way
i try to take it day by day

over the mountains
we'll find you someday
we're getting ready

although your illusions very clever
i can't breath in this plastic room forever
