about

Recorded in various rooms of my house over the summer. A melancholic folk album inspired by my summer, and it coming to an end, and the events surrounding that, and everything that made me feel and think.

Track Name: Don't You Dream
Sleep here
Don't you dream
Without me there

Stay the same
Don't change
Don't change a little thing

Just like this
Just like this
Like this a little more

Stay the same
Don't change
Don't change a little thing
Track Name: Don't Let This Pass By
Stayed at home, stayed safe
Can't risk making another mistake
Thought about life, thought about dreams
He closed his eyes to let the stars go by

Don't let this pass by

Another night, another sleep, another dream
My head looks down, I face the ground
When my thoughts turn back to you

Don't let this pass by
Track Name: Pillow Song
Please, remember that peak, that height
I'd like to make that climb again

I'm sorry I could only make you smile for a while
For that little bit of time

Please, let's try again
Not now, but then
When I'm older, when I'm wiser
When I'm stronger as a person
Track Name: Please Be Somewhere
How can I not be scared?
Knowing one day, you won't be here
How can I not be afraid?
Knowing one day, we won't be alive at the same time.

Where will I go when I die? Please be somewhere
Where will she go when she dies? Please, don't be nowhere

All the pain she's had in her life
Don't let it be mine
I'm not as strong as I'd like
All of that fear that keeps me trapped
Don't ever make her feel like that

Where will I go when I die? Please be somewhere
Where will she go when she dies? Please, don't be nowhere
Track Name: Couldn't Find The Words
I can't explain, so I refrain
Everything ends, everyone forgets
While I keep on digging up dreams

Nights spent wondering what your smile meant
Wondering what it could mean, if I'd finally found what I need
But everything I thought I never said

Words long gone, words that grew stale as the days went on
Time turned old, the days turned cold
Places changed, nothing stayed the same

Driving back on the long cemented track
I can't accept this is how it ends

I wanted to say something to you
But I couldn't find the words to use
It's not fine
I think about you all the time
Track Name: It Passed By
I fucked it man, it's at the end, it's over with
The fire's out, it's turned to shit
There's nothing anyone can do or say

I prayed and prayed to have that magic night
Now the lights are off, the people gone
There's nothing I can do to bring them back
Nothing I can do

For a moment, for a little moment
I could feel everything I wanted
Everything I thought I'd never feel

Everything that I could ever need
Now the light is all behind me
Now the light is all behind me
Track Name: Don't Change
Sleep here
Don't you dream
Without me there

Stay the same
Don't change
Don't change a little thing
