about

I made this album to show what I can do and who I am musically because I'm going to university in September. I, obviously, hope to improve, so in order to track this improvement it begins here.

released August 24, 2014

Special thanks to Shakrah Siffre-Banerji who lent his vocals to track 7 (and is also a wonderful friend in general).

Track Name: Don't You Know
Coming out from the best I’ve seen,
Looking good on the movie screen,
No more doubt but I guess they’ll grow,
Have they said or don’t you know?

Don't you know?

Then you look at the hourglass,
All was good but in the past,
Time ticks on and you will grow,
That’s what they said but don’t you know?

Don't you know?
But don't you know? (x10)
Track Name: You're the Only One
See the glass is half full,
But they'll say it's empty too,
And I'll confess I got here with progress,
Oh and this time,
I've got to say it's mine,
Along this line I walked with you just fine,
It can last a while,
Sometimes you'll wanna walk that mile,
Everybody's look at you excepting you to reconcile,
Fortunate in a way,
Sometimes sadness only lasts a day,
Sometimes it takes away everything you wanna say,

Oh don't you know,
You're the only one for me? (x2)

Because you understand,
You'll just take my hand,
Won't force the walk break down the walls and talk,
When it's getting tough,
And I've had it rough,
You can come my way it makes me feel enough,

Oh don't you know,
You're the only one for me? (x4)
Track Name: Sailing Alone
It’ll get darker out here,
When night is very near,
You didn’t plan it out this way,
You said it’s a new day,
Up and left to sail the seas,
Wind changed and led you on a breeze,
Set on a brand new course,
Not by choice but by force,

You won’t go back,
Life’s new track,
Has brought you far,
So here you are,

It’s a boat for one,
Would get lonely for some,
But you don’t feel so alone,
You call yourself home,
To find what you were not looking for,
To be the one who wanted more,
You steered the boat from the wind,
When you felt it start sink,

You won’t go back,
Life’s new track,
Has brought you far,
So here you are,
You won’t go back,
Life’s new track,
Has brought you far,
So here you are,

It’ll get darker out here,
When night is very near,
You didn’t plan it out this way,
But today is a whole new day.
Track Name: Don't Lose Faith
Oh if you’re on your own,
Have nobody, have no home,
Start from scratch be all you’ve known,
Take them down, reclaim your throne,
Fight for the freedom, fight for your life,
Fight for the courage to survive,
And if you falter, if you must fall,
Take what you can, forget them all,

And as the story goes,
You will travel all alone,
You may hate that most of all,
Don’t lose faith, heed the call,
When it seems like all is lost,
Like you paid the highest cost,
Keep going don’t slow down,
You’ll get there, you’ll be found
Track Name: Seaside
They’ll come back to the beach tonight,
See the waves catch high in flight,
Like the planes in the midnight sky,
That dive through clouds when I lead you by,
The coast for a moonlight toast,
For the ambience, for the firefly ghosts,
Down the rocks to the sand again,
The night is spent in hollow suspense oh,

Short cuts lead around your town,
Bring you down to the sea and all around,
The alley shops and stalls that lock,
Your eyes for longer than you want,
Trains run late in an awful state,
Carriages broken lie around like waste,
Board them still just for a thrill,
Friends in toe, your bikes on the hill,

Board them still just for a thrill,
Friends in toe, your bikes on the hill
Track Name: Too Right to Be Wrong
And if you want me on my own,
'Cause you’re feeling so alone,
When you’re gone for too long,
It all feels wrong,
If it makes you feel better,
The road led to never,
It was fun to go along,
But it just felt wrong,

Oh the weather shed today,
Got caught in the rain,
But you only feel the same,
In your heart, not your brain,
To my cares I said goodbye,
They crashed back by the time,
You left me on my own,
So I’m walking back alone,

And if you want me to come back,
With the feelings that you lack,
I would take the time of day,
I would walk back your way,

Oh the weather shed today,
Got caught in the rain,
But you only feel the same,
In your heart, not your brain,
To my cares I said goodbye,
They crashed back by the time,
You left me on my own,
So I’m walking back alone,

And if you want me on my own,
Cos you’re feeling so alone,
When you’re gone for too long,
It all feels wrong,
And if you want me to come back,
With the feelings that you lack,
I would take the time of day,
I would walk back your way,

Oh the weather shed today,
Got caught in the rain,
But you only feel the same,
In your heart, not your brain,
To my cares I said goodbye,
They crashed back by the time,
You left me on my own,
So I’m walking back alone
Track Name: We Used to Be
I could never be the same, be that way,
It became too real to wake up every day,
Finding all the words to begin to explain,
Just how much it hurts to even walk away,

When the darkness is a shadow tonight,
Watch the stars spark flames alight,
Burn until it's all I see,
That's when the skies will recognise me,
It used to be brighter than this,
We used to be brighter than this,
It used to be brighter than this,
That's what I miss,

You can ask me why I look back,
You're running till you can't see the start of the track,
When did the sun get so hard to find?
That's what I miss, that's what I left behind,

When the darkness is a shadow tonight,
Watch the stars spark flames alight,
Burn until it's all I see,
That's when the skies will recognise me,
It used to be brighter than this,
We used to be brighter than this,
It used to be brighter than this,
That's what I miss
Track Name: More Than Draining
When you deserve better then what you got,
And feel like the outsider a lot,
It tears you down and confusion sets in,
Oh it’s more than draining,

I’m here to stay I’m not going away,
I’ll be the comfort that you crave,
And in the night when the city sleeps,
I’ll be there and you won’t feel so weak
Track Name: Burning Town
Through walls of falling brick,
To stones that wash on the shore,
From scents of burning ash,
You can’t hear much anymore,
The town is crumbling now,
The embers dying away,
The fire spread so far,
But it was gone by the day,
And though the people helped,
Not a thing could be saved,
And now they walk the streets,
To find a meaning each day,
Damage all around,
And nothing could be done,
Nobody found,
Their home, there wasn’t one

Search through the rubble,
All you want,
It’s just a mess now,
That’s all you’ve got,
Nothing to salvage,
But some shattered remains,
It’s hardly living,
When it’s survival today,
Tomorrow’s distant,
Oh it’s another world,
Where people smile,
No broken boys and girls,
No hope worth having,
It was burned away,
It’s hardly living,
When it’s survival today,

News it travelled,
Far and beyond,
To all the people,
Who hear and respond,
They wanna help now,
They wanna help the town,
Get it back up now,
When it was injured and down,
And with the effort,
To do all they could,
They got back to,
The way that it should,
It’s not perfect,
It won’t really thrive,
But it’s enough,
To live and survive
