Hue 03:25
When can I be comfortable with everyone rolling around inside my head it’s been a whole year and I am almost done figuring out just what you said listen if you want to you’re losing everything always wanting something better feel your sweater glisten in the right hue I’ll always be waiting and if you wrote me a letter just forget her when I wrote to you I had this pain inside my chest hoping the words from you would help me give it rest I walked a fine line but I said it anyway cause I make decisions on how I felt yesterday and I’m crying in the car driving in circles for you but I’m feeling way too far hoping to just push through.

Gentle 03:28
Listening to people talk when I’m asleep in the dark talking about you and me and about our sad history I feel scared all in my head unprepared thoughts in this bed wait till dawn to figure out what the hell my friends talked about sometimes I cry when I feel the rays from the light all my friends are blocking me out feeling like I’m trapped in the doubt what should I do when it has been a few years and I am still here and how could I do without you one day I’ll be fine change your mind or should I sometimes I cry when I feel the rays from the light all my friends are blocking me out feeling like I’m trapped in the doubt but I gotta do it for myself just to see it through gotta be more gentle on myself just to get to you I will be the one who will fall I don’t need your help here at all I will be the son who will crawl pick myself up from the ball and things are better alone.

YNW 03:16
Yesterday I thought of you and I felt dumb for giving you that pleasure think it now I’ll think it and I will feel numb things we couldn’t measure sitting on my full-sized bed to get into my stupid head sometimes I can’t look away cause you never were on my mind all the time living together wrapped up in your arms singing my own song to myself feeling like I’m caught up in a life loop watching the same movies out with your friends in my mind I wish I wasn’t cooped up because our movie never really ends cause you never were on my mind all the time living together wrapped up in your arms singing my own song to myself and if you see now I am everything I wanted to be please help me see and make me feel guilty for always being there cause you never were.

Fine 03:43
Whatever happened to the red guitar that I bought you I thought you always wanted to play like a heart collecting dust in the bedroom I hope that you keep it in tune our song won’t be written today it’s the same way when fighting in silence and your name is gone from my mind I feel the same damn way when you tell me that you’re fine I’m still here but I won’t be here for too long gotta hold myself together till you tell me that I’m wrong it’s in my ear but it’s hard for me to be strong I don’t want to comprise I’ll wait until you’re gone it’s the same way when fighting in silence and your name is gone from my mind I feel the same damn way when you tell me that you’re fine I need you to hold me you’re the mold so sculpt me into someone so I can be happy someday in the back of my mind I will find you and our love will combine and we’ll see who had the most of it inside.

your dreams 01:22
So I had this dream a while back I had a dream that I was going down a scary looking market lots of like dead animals hanging all over the place and we had to fly to get there the airport was like part of the park that scared me really badly I would wake up in a cold sweat high anxiety i remember wandering off by myself at this camp we went back to her car and found a note on the car that said the car had been repossessed by scientists there were rides and rollercoasters and what not there but I also knew that when he turned around the dream would be over cause that’s what always happens in a dream it’s always the same for some reason and I always like I let it play out and then I remember being approached by a camp counselor and they told me what are you doing stop moving it you’re gonna kill it I wander for over a day unable to find my group of friends and I felt like I loved something so much that I murdered it i felt helpless I need to do things in my life i need to be successful whatever that means to me like I can't let that child down and it didn’t feel like a dream

Pillow 03:36
All you want is to circle round my head round my bedside all you need is for me to let you in let you in my heart you said even though it's 8 years I need to give my mind someplace to clear maybe we'll meet up someday waiting in line at the cafe where my mind goes blank and my heart beats fast nothing you could say could bring me back you were the one I loved you were the girl I had we fell apart and now I can see that every night when it's time to come home I see you sitting there on your cell phone maybe that crack on your screen is a metaphor about you and me when you see me standing there across the street I hope you'll be happier with or without me

Night Drive 03:12
Because you are my world I wanna treat you carefully givin up the things I do to make you see through me and you know I’d give you all I have and many more what the hell am I still doin outside by your door you make everything I thought for myself feel real I’m curled up in a ball on top of the world my body is achin and I know that you are my favorite healer maybe I’m wondering why all of the time I need you you’re on my side it’s just a night time drive you’re on my mind again and everything’s alright hand on your thigh slippin up from under the light we’ll be home soon and then we’ll figure it sometime everyone’s running up to see you fall someone thought I would be the one to call to comfort you while I push myself back into the leather I remind myself that you’re the reason why I’m better maybe we just don’t feel it give it a bit moving on to someone else in time and pick you up when you’re around up from the house our love was found I’ll take you home so slowly.

Frames 03:20
And I called my mom on the phone and cried when can I move away I need some money to get me by because I really can't stay you had always been with me even in the back of my dreams you had never once hurt me, until you left for the beach I'm an only child I'm alone for now it's as bad as it seems you took me down I'll see you around in all of my dreams and the window is open and your hair is on the floor no more words must be spoken after I walk right out the door I’m an only child I'm alone for now it's as bad as it seems you took me down I'll see you around in all of my dreams photos on the wall throwing my clothes into a ball and I'm flipping all of the frames around and around and around just for you and I'm on the floor and I'm talking with you feel nothing wishing for someone new I'm an only child I'm alone for now it's as bad as it seems you took me down I'll see you around in all of my dreams photos on the wall throwing my clothes into a ball and I'm flipping all of the frames around and around and around just for you.

Care 04:29
Everything was easy When I turned eighteen You were new to me Typing away all my feelings to you It’s just what I do You and me were alright when you’d spend the night In my parents’ house With the tv down and all I heard was you And if I got a little closer maybe you’d ask why That if time moved a little faster This was meant to die And it goes and it goes and it goes it starts fading away And you and know and you know and you and know I guess I loved you in the wrong way Intertwined in my mind it is freaking me out lately Don’t you know that sometimes that my heart is a maybe And if I got a little closer maybe you’d ask why That if time moved a little faster This was meant to die And it goes and it goes and it goes it starts fading away And you and know and you know and you and know I guess I loved you in the wrong way You might be waiting somewhere for me to call I’ll be calculating if I care at all Sometimes I feel better when you’re here But I know the future is too clear

about

This album wouldn’t have been possible without the love and support of my live band members: David Cubine, James Goss and Daniel Greenblatt, who had a huge part in giving me the courage to make this album. They believed in Sea Salt from the beginning, before I even had a coherent demo. Thank you to Mat Halliday and Rachel Field for bringing these songs to life with their expertise. Thank you to all my friends who put up with my late-night “is this demo good?” texts. Thank you to my wonderful partner Katie for being so understanding and supportive throughout my +2 years of writing and recording.

Your support means the world to me, and I hope you enjoy the songs.
