about

This animated indie pop album promises smooth baritone, heartfelt songwriting, and just enough shimmering electric guitar, thumping piano and sparkling synth to make the lip gloss pop.

Track Name: Shoot for Love
Found your Mr. Right,
Drink his rosewater, wine and dine
It might look like love
But you’re barely 25

Will that man make you whole?
Mind and body, he wants your soul
Don’t let it move too fast, does he know your past at all?

Shoot for love
Aim as high as the sun
Reach for more
You might just find that someone

Don’t close your eyes
For any reason
Just hold your breath and fire

Sit there waiting to talk
Hear him blather on, but does he walk the walk?
Is this something real, and is it only 9 o’clock?

Shoot for love
Aim as high as the sun
Reach for more
You might just find that someone

Don’t close your eyes
For any reason
Just hold your breath and

Give it time
You’ve got the rest of your life
Nights will fall, loneliness will arrive
But that day will come in time
Love is on the way

Shoot for love (2x)

One life one love
Two hearts and that’s enough (2x)


Shoot for love
Aim as high as the sun
Reach for more
You might just find that someone

Don’t close your eyes
For any reason
Just hold your breath and fire
Track Name: Spinning Gold (feat. Spence Hood)
Leave a message at the tone
I’ll be 400 miles from
Sipping on tea and something new
Peppermint gum and pastry crumbs and
ten more Mayer tracks to come
No missed exits on this groove

The sun sets a different kind of invitation
Down a road less traveled without expectations

And I know and I know and I know it’s moving through me right now

Now I feel it flowing in my blood flashing like a flood
And I’m feeling it feeling it now
Seen the symphony of roses too, warm vanilla hues
And I’m feeling it feeling it now
Lady luck was all tied up in days of old
Well you can tell her now I’m infinitely spinning gold

Well I found some unfamiliar faces
Reaching into borrowed places
Soon enough they’ll know my name
In the dampness of the nighttime air
and the touch of smiles and gentle stares
and a one night wonder time of fame

locked down, gimme the crown and write my check
cuz what I say and what I mean are starting to connect

And I know and I know and I know it’s moving through me right now

Chorus

Now I’m out the door at 5 am to pay my dues again
And the token of a memory will be my phantom limb

Though I knew it was coming at me from the very start
She’ll always be company within my heart

Ooh got it, I got the feeling baby
‘im gonna flaunt I got the feeling

Chorus
Track Name: Arbor Day
Watching my life go, passing like lines on the highway
Waiting for something to reassure I won’t be missing out
Should I stay or should I go, if only somebody could show me the way

So tell me if I’m running away
And tell me that you’ll be there anyway

Just tell me you’re holding on to yesterday
It’s somewhere inside me now the way that I dreamed
The pictures are blurring out they’re hard to remember
It’s already over, it’s already done

Under the oak tree, a decade away from that photograph
I look at my parents my sister and brother all frozen in time
They know my whole life, but a part of me’s fading away

Bring me back to that Arbor Day
And tell me that you’ll be there anyway

Just Tell me you’re holding on to yesterday
It’s somewhere inside me now the way that I dreamed
The pictures are blurring out they’re hard to remember
It’s already over, it’s already done
Track Name: Shot Down
I heard it once
You can’t pity the boy
Who sits there hoping to avoid
A little shy, won’t look her in the eye
He just quietly exits down the line,
These words on his mind:

“Shot down
I just can’t take the heat now
I knew it was a moment of truth
Let down
I’m feelin kinda jaded
I knew it was a feeling in time”
He can’t help it’s always on his mind

No doubt,
You’d be forever hated
Tryn’ to turn it all around
But I know, it’s only something I created
A life that’s lonely by design
With these words on my mind

Shot down

I just can’t take the heat now
I knew it was a moment of truth
Let down
I’m feelin kinda jaded
I knew it was a

Feeling in time now it’s on my mind
Tell me it’s true, I’m not right for you
I’ll ask it again, let it all sink in
You tell me to go, but it’s only in my mind

Shot down
Before it even started
I didn’t even try to show my hand

“Shot down
I just can’t take the heat now
I knew it was a moment of truth
Let down
I’m feelin kinda jaded
I knew it was a feeling in time”
I can’t help it, it's always on my mind
Track Name: Grounded (feat. Jack Barton)
Ten years of living in my head
Shoulda been with you instead
stuck in a cloud you see
Lost in my reverie

I keep my dream all nice and clean
I frame it like a movie screen
Romanticizing love
I drank it all right up

Then I saw what it really was

You got me grounded
Now I’m a free from a fantasy
I’ve been unbounded
Caught up caught up in reality
Found out found out it was meant for me

One day being near to you
Better than a dream come true
Not fooled by my own lies
Love without starry eyes

The passion of an afternoon
Crackin up at the same cartoon
A postcard memory
You sitting here with me

Now I know how its s’posed to feel

Chorus

She says is it feeling too simple?

I say don’t overthink it, it’s really that simple, yes, really that simple

She worries we’re going nowhere

I know we’ve already landed,
It’s right where it should be
Walking next to me,

Now we’ve seen what our time could be

Chorus
Track Name: Home Again
Turning inside out trying to find my own
Never been that far, only a stone’s throw away
Breathing in that air, thin as a summer snow
Can I turn my back when it’s time to go?

From a mountain, to the ocean then home again
When it’s over, it doesn’t matter where I’ve been
Cause it feels like I’m coming

Home, whoa
Feels like I’m coming home
Whoa, feels like I’m coming (3x) home

I knew it wasn’t gonna be that long till I was gone, and now I’m gone
Still I’m waiting for the strength to say, “I’m moving on”

From a mountain, to the ocean then home again
When it’s over, it doesn’t matter where I’ve been
Cause it feels like I’m coming

Chorus

A place for every home, my heart’s arranging
Now I feel it in the night, everything’s changing
I’ll stop and say hello, but am I the same friend?
And when I say goodbye, will I see you again?

From a mountain, to the ocean then home again
When it’s over, it doesn’t matter where I’ve been
Cause it feels like I’m coming

Chorus
Track Name: Chemistry
The fool in my head said it’s going down tonight
The haze in my brain’s got me thinking you’re just my type
I love that sweet sedation; I’m trying to have a good time
Forget the implications and follow me into the night

You and me, we got some chemistry now
Woah, woah
Breathe it in and help me figure it out
Woah, woah

Touch my lips, mixology
You’re in my blood, toxicology
Chain reaction, molecular attraction we’re bound tonight

A dancing compilation,
I’m trying to have a good time

We got this fascination
So follow me into the night

Chorus

Time to be alone, time to breathe
thought’s that are not my own, now you see

Chorus

She creeps right in, I sink right down
into my dark imagination
Needles and pins, I’m walking on
Won’t settle down until it’s over,

Chorus
Track Name: For All I Know
Its a little unclear, where I go from here
Do I throw out my name, do I play the game?
I pray it doesn’t fall through, waiting in the queue
Should I follow that sign, or is it just a line?

I’m looking to find that love
I’m hoping that I’m enough

I feel it in the air
The answers to my questionnaire
It’s something that I’ll know, for all I know
I put my doubt to bed, but am I only putting faith in roulette?
Woah

If I should find it, bear in mind our Q & A’s not done
Let us discuss, before you lose my trust

Will it last, will it lie in a place of happiness?
Or is true, that it will come unglued?

I’m looking to keep that love
I’m hoping that I’m enough

Chorus

We all got the right to be
expecting that guarantee
of love

But I’m holding onto the complexity
Now I’m fonder of the wonder and mystery
Track Name: The Only Way
You’re turning 20 go and say your goodbyes
Tell that kid that its time, you get on with your life
But now it isn’t quite the way they described
When your feet hit the ground, twisted up, beaten down

To find out
They really don’t care
If you’re here or you’re there
The world will blow smoke, you’ll blow hot air
Somebody said this is the way, the only way

A child of habit, you believe that it’s true
When they say to your face, we see something in you
You look away and try to salvage your pride
Show your heart to the world, and the world will deny

To find out
They really don’t care
If you’re here or you’re there
The world will blow smoke, you’ll blow hot air
Somebody said this is the way, the only way

So stop me there, you’re not the only one who cares
You’re not the only one who’s been alone and scared
This life, I know, sometimes it feels a little cold
But even if you’re torn up now, it’s on the page, this is the only way


To find out
They really don’t care
To find out
They really don’t care

You might be innocent
But life ain’t fair
It might not be your fault
But it’s going nowhere

To find out
They really don’t care
If you’re here or you’re there
The world will blow smoke, you’ll blow hot air
Somebody said this is the way
Somebody knew this was the way
I’ll telling you now this is the way, the only way
Track Name: Warmth of the Sun
I spoke to the sky this afternoon
She told me that it’s better above
The sun, it keeps her breathing
that brilliance and clearness of love

But when I felt the earth below
My legs well they just didn’t feel right
Then the sky turned black and I stopped believing
I felt the cold despite the stars in the night

Everybody looks into heaven, deepening the dark and light years alone
But everybody’s got to believe that in the morning comes the warmth of the sun

My mind was clouded, my eyes were closed
Something inside me said “you’re floating on your own”
when I felt the rising touch of sunlight
I got to thinking that it’s good to be alive

Everybody looks into heaven, deepening the dark and light years alone
But everybody’s got to believe that in the morning comes the warmth of the sun

Now that it’s late October
The daylight is fading away from me
I wonder if when I’m older
I’ll quiet the sorrow inside of me

Chorus

(Everybody’s got to believe it,)
A shadow in the dark my night’s are only getting colder

(Everybody’s got to believe it)
I feel the morning come I feel the sun upon my shoulder

Everybody’s got to believe it 2x
Everybody wants to believe it


Chorus
Track Name: Great Escape (feat. Jack Barton)
Here I am again, sitting alone in this hole in the wall

Right down the line she can't keep back the laugh
I wish she was my better half

But I'm left disenchanted
asking what if and when you'll walk down the bar

Ring me up, don't bring me down tonight
Alright
Pour some life into this town tonight
Alright
Every time I pay, left without the words to say
Let's make a great escape

She handed me a note
I was hoping for more than the tab

Catching her eye is all but lost
With my name already below the cost

So I'm left disenchanted
asking what if and when you'll walk down the bar

Ring me up, don't bring me down tonight
Alright
Pour some life into this town tonight
Alright
Every time I pay, left without the words to say
Let's make a great escape

(instrumental)

So I'm left disenchanted
asking what if and when you'll walk down the bar

Ring me up, don't bring me down tonight
Alright
Pour some life into this town tonight
Alright
Every time I pay, left without the words to say
Let's make a great escape

I'm ready (4x)
Track Name: Live Well
City lights, see skyline
All that I can say is that I feel small

Touch the ground, a million feet pound
And all that I can say is that feel small

Suddenly I realize I’m nothing at all
Suddenly I hear the truth what’s it all for?
Suddenly I feel the pressure starting to fall

Live today and hope the morning comes
Soak it in and when it’s done it’s done

Are they grand? grains of white sand
Swallowed by the waves they feel the tide pull

Look up high, does the earth cry?
Spinning in the black, I bet it feels small

Suddenly I realize I’m nothing at all
Suddenly I fear the truth, what’s it all for?
Suddenly I feel the pressure starting to fall

Just tell me that I’m not the only one
Trying to avoid becoming numb

Live my life as it comes, but I think about it
I’ll be gone someday, and what will they say?
Will they think about the things I’ve done?

In the end, when it’s over
All I want to say is that I lived well
