I wonder why, sometimes, I have to take a pinch of salt with every situation that I find I'm getting smaller as I drift away and leave you all behind I'm running low on what you gave to me to remedy the bruises and the hunger that I hide And all I'm left with is the memory to take me to your side If you want, you can see me as I walk on by See me as I catch your eye and drift into reverie one more time I'd like to take the time to show you 'round this world of mine Where everyone and everything is free I used to live inside the houses on your street when I was young I've come to talk to you and offer you a remedy for every complication that you find Cause at your age you can't just walk away and leave it all behind And if you want, you can see me as I walk on by See me as I catch your eye and drift into reverie one more time If you want, you can see me as I walk on by See me as I catch your eye and drift into reverie one more time

You could give me everything if I could lie with you Has it been a little while And do you see a little smile emerging Tempering the storm I lose my appetite and keep on staying up at night It hurts me to live without a love I'm driving home alone The distance that I move my bones is crazy But it's all I ever do You could give me everything if I could lie with you Now, what are you supposed to do With signals flying over you, infrequent Provided by the storm She's sitting close to me Composed as she's supposed to be It hurts me to waste a woman's love I'm driving far away Alone, where I can finally make the choices I always seem to choose You could give me everything if I could lie with you

Magic happens when people turn away Don't you know that's the reason that Maddie couldn't stay Booked herself a ticket Don't you ever wonder why we're here together? As it happened, I walked out in the rain Couldn't understand the reason I couldn't see the pain She's miles away from me And I can only dream how it would feel together Together Do you wonder how it feels with me with you? Magic happens when little places meet I'd be holding you so closely and walking down the street Waiting for nothing Don't you ever wonder why we're here together?

If I was wise enough to fall in love I would fall in love with you It doesn't matter if you break my heart I'll know that it was true Oh and eveyone around me is telling stories that I can't trust I don't know why But when I fly with you I feel like we've gone too late Give me a reason for chalking it up to fate If I was brave enough to be with you I would start my heart again There's something delicate in every touch and I just can't pretend Oh and every time I see you I wanna hold you inside of my hands I don't know why But when I fly with you I feel like we've gone too late Give me a reason for chalking it up to fate Please wait for me and satisfy the (ghost behind the reason) for letting it all go wrong The ghost behind the reason for letting it all go wrong I don't know why But when I fly with you I feel like we've gone too late Give me a reason for chalking it up to fate Give me a reason for chalking it up to fate Give me a reason for chalking it up to fate

'Leave the hanger on the door', said the trucker to the maid 'Disconnect the phone' And I don't know how I'm supposed to take these aches from my belly and my bones all on my own (God is watching from above) God is watching from above with a telescopic lens while you're out of reach Waiting for a miracle to come while you're staring down the sun with your finger on your keys We can't hold out forever Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me We can't hold on together Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me (In the middle of the night) In the middle of the night we were talking on the phone She couldn't sleep I was staring at a picture of a man with a rifle in his hand while I listened to her speak (How long can I delay?) How long can I delay? It's a habit I can't break, like saccharine Staring in the mirror at a man with a future in his hands while I listened to her speak She said 'We can't hold on forever Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me' We can't hold on together Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me

You may need to go back But you don't need a homing beacon I stay bound within a world which I am told Is only one of a kind It's a reasonable explaination But is it gonna get me home? I could test the waters for a while if I thought you'd understand Why is it always someone's love That fills the creases? Something inside us wants that silence to be filled With candy cream and coated hearts of summer You might love to see me try But I can't leave my homing beacon This time instead of making promises alone I'll try to write this letter It's an ever-moving destination And you'll be travelling alone But why is it always someone's love That fills the creases? Something inside us wants that silence to be filled With candy cream and coated hearts of summer

As long as there is time between us We stand a chance of being heard But now we're stuck inside a labyrinth With no way out I'll stay, waiting for what time provides me Here as long as you're beside me Always Warm inside out fate decided All along a love was hiding here always Stronger than we ever knew This signal's coming back to you But I could never step my foot away I didn't know about forever Until I entered it with you I take a moment to remember That we're rich young people Waiting for the main event I thank my stars you're heaven sent to me Always Everything has been provided All along a love was hiding here always Stronger than we ever knew This signal's coming back to you But I could never step my foot away

As I woke up this morning I thought I'd say something 'bout laziness or yesterday To lie in my bed and relive in my head, my day A gentle decline is a voice that's not mine, okay I'd always thought that this would play out different But spells and mud both work so much alike And what I have come to learn's the cues I'm missing So end the darkness and bring me on the light As I walked along the street I thought I'd find a thrill or inovation to fire my mind But all I could see: initials to read this time A round of applause for seeing the whole thing through I'd always thought that this would play out different But spells and mud both work so much alike And what I have come to learn's the cues I'm missing So end the darkness and bring me on the light And as I stumble home tonight I'm glad for what I'm given: A pockey full of songs to call upon I'll rest my weary head tonight and look at what I've written And pray to someone you will sing along I'd always thought that this would play out different But forcing fate is something I can't do And what I have come to learn's the cues I'm missing But what I hope I've never lost is you

about

GRIM is an album of acoustic songs which I wrote in 2018-19, with the exception of 'Untitled #2', which is a little older. Maybe 2016.
