about

This is a collection of songs written around a bad car accident. Funded by fans on Patreon, we spent 1 day recording at Good Danny's studio (working on Wild.) At the end of the day, I laid down 5 songs solo- back to back, one take, quick n dirty- and the Analog Sessions were born.

Track Name: Wild
I'm burning down
Breaking bones
Cooling down
Drying out
I'm a field run fallow
Under February snow
I can't find a hand to hold
Couldn't keep me from the cold

My heroes aren't heroes
My demons dealing doubles through the night

Remember you were made wild
Rows and ridges fence the mind
Grow your hair out in the rain
Dig your roots down deeper in the dirt and find
You are right on time

I planted seeds
Let them go
Walked away
Let them grow
You and me
We are trees
Crossing roots and standing tall
Wrapping branches round the fall

Our heroes aren’t heroes
Writers of words, what's that worth?

Remember you were made wild
Roll in ribbon grass and rhymes
Take your clothes off in the day
Let the sunlight soak your face
You'll be alright
Children of the wild

Now the drought is over
Let it rain, let it cry
Til springtime shines

Remember you were made wild
Rows and ridges fence the mind
Grow your hair out in the rain
Dig your roots down deeper in the dirt and find
You are right on time
Track Name: The Lonesome
Cruising across Texas
Maron on my phone
Car cut cross the highway
Hit me head on
I couldn't move
Rain pouring through my window

I’ve never felt so alone holding my phone
Staring at the ceiling while the ambulance rolls on
Who's gonna come for me broken like this
I’m the lonesome
I’m the lonesome

I posted her picture
People sent their love
He called me crying
We’ve all had enough
I told him I’m sorry to be adding to the bad news
Of election week

I’ve never felt so alone
Hospital gown
Staring at the ceiling wondering who can I call on
Who’s gonna come for me broken like this
I’m the lonesome
I’m the lonesome

The dawn came to greet me
Helped me clean out my car
The hawk held us safe through the hill country storm
Now I’m staring at my ceiling
Second chance starts now
And all I know is that its raining and there’s roses
Oh, beautiful day
I'll put the lonesome away
Track Name: Listening Room
My favorite place to play is alone in my room
The silence listens deeper than you
The stillness beats its own breathe
The cool of the calm radiates on the wind

I tried to sing strong in the cafes and bars
I tried to sing loud over the crowd
But they just wanna drink
and laugh while I sing
They ain't got the time for a song

Its listening room only so settle down
Sit on the floor
Watch the words spin around
This is a place to get found

I drive long miles, sleep on the couch
To sing for the crowd that counts
You don't have to be many
Don't have to be rich
If you’re listening open, yer scratching my itch

For listening room only please settle down
Sit on the floor 
Watch the words spinning round
This is where I got found

I drove 3000 miles 
To sing for the traveling crowd
In another tour trap town
Dropping dollars in tip jars to ease the pain
Of putting my heart out and not being seen

Its listening room only whenever i play
I can't sing the covers
I can't dance the jig
So take me or leave me
And please leave a tip
My heart’s all I got and you can have it
Track Name: Something About Being Alone
Telephone rings to the dawning breeze
I'm unwinding time in the violet freeze
Feathers in hair and the crow of coffee
I guessing I gotta get up today

New day French presses one cup only
Hinge creeking mouth, listen david bowie
A Friday confession for Saturday sins
While I’m swallowing cereal shallow skins

And there’s something about being alone
Yeah there's something about being alone

Siren sings past the school kid line
32 in 20, $300 fine
I'm learning to not try to bend the time
I’ll be giving my paycheck before its signed

And there’s something about being alone
Yeah there's something about being alone

Is every moment a turning or choosing
Are we talking through time zones
Do we have to lose it
Can we lay down by each other and make an equal sign
Are we all a little worse for the lines

And there’s something about being alone
Yeah there’s something about being alone

Traffic light blinks to the mid-day rush
30 minutes is just long enough to get stuck
I’m learning to not leave my cards all face up
In the rearview I’m fixing my eyes makeup

And there’s something about being alone
Yeah there's something about being alone
Track Name: Ireland
I wanna go to Ireland
I see myself on that shore
Its where I coulda been born but we got hungry

I'm running most of the time
I got a vision board mind
Trying hard to climb climb climb
Afraid of the heights

The road rolls and rolls
Don't know where it goes
I'm going just to go

I wanna drive northeast
Feel the colors falling down around me
And chase the changing leaves from sea to sea

I wanna travel on a train
See Holland, Germany, Spain
And get a fresh tattoo of a flower about to bloom

I'm a snake shedding skin
Don't know how to win
I just get to begin and begin and begin
The road rolls and rolls, don't know where it goes
I'm going just to go

I want a taste of everything
I want everything
Don't wanna walk alone no more along this river shore

I wanna write a thousand songs
Sing 'em on a big stage
Feel a flash of fame on my face fade away
Amazing grace

And I wanna have a big love
A home and garden that i've dreamed of
A do okay on my own, but I could do better by you

You don't have to know what you wanna grow
Baby let it grow, let it grow, let it grow
The road rolls and rolls, don't know where it goes
I'm going just to go

And I wanna go to Ireland
I see myself on that shore
Its where I coulda been born but we got hungry
Track Name: Better Days
I ain't seen better days than this
I go where i want and i do what i wish
I could get use to this
But I gotta go so I can see what I miss

Driving away, sunny Sunday
You get what you wanted they say

I aint had a better kiss
True to the tongue and the pull on my hips
I could get use to this
Watch the seasons sift through the sails on our ship

But I'm driving away from you today
Gotta go before i can stay
Guess thats my way

You built me up
Then you brought me down
Sweet summer lover
Our hearts beat the same color

I aint heard a sweeter song than yours
Whistle the way you learned from the birds
Sing it for another girl
Got that gold in your teeth
Catch and release

Driving away from the same pain
My way is the highway
and i aint seen better days
