Wake Up 01:23
When you Wake up Look out your window Let the sun shine For a moment as your Eyes so softly Tremble and open Give them some time To adjust to the light They've been Closed awhile
2.
Body Scan 00:58
With a little help from me My body works fine Relax my jaw, my shoulders And my mind With a smile on my heart I hope we won't fall apart
3.
Overwhelmed 02:46
I'm overwhelmed Hold my head when you're around I don't trust myself All the time I've fallen down Get back up, I'm homeward bound I don't trust myself All the time And over time Over time It gets better It gets better I try not to frown Smile spreads light throughout my crown I will trust myself Over time Over time
4.
Rain 03:58
I can't help what I'm going to do Let's wait and see My self's got some growing to do I'm on my way Then the rain falls down The rain falls down Oh, the rain falls down The rain falls down Oh, the rain falls down The rain falls down And the rain falls down The rain falls down And I'm happy and I know it I'd like to show it To you To you Do you Feel Like Me?
5.
HMU 01:15
When you don't hit me up you let me down though I know we are both at fault at least I hope it's not just me who misses what we had before but life moves on as I look backwards
6.
Search Party 01:22
For the first time I remember I spent all day watching tv alone On my iphone I need a search party to come and look for me I'm in here somewhere deep I'm in here somewhere please I'm in here somewhere deep I'm in here somewhere
7.
Curfew 03:41
It's 8:45 and I wish I'd gone outside today It's cold out there but I don't mind I can just close my eyes Take a breathe in through my nose And let myself cry For the space I feel that I Take Give Make The room stop spinning when I lay down my head Please don't hold me to the words that I have said My ears are ringing like water full of lead With fingers like icicles that wipe the tears I shed
8.
Hope 01:02
I don't want to die And I'm not gonna Cause nothing can kill me Thought I'm scared of everything Except for what the future brings I am full of hope and not much else
9.
Body/Belly 02:23
Most of my life I've been running away from my body Everywhere I go it follows, I'll never get away In and out, I breathe as I feel my belly Giving me away like a question exposing my fears It's still here when the lights go out And I forget what to worry about Dipping my toes in a puddle of doubt I wonder where I'd be without my body Help me get back home It's getting colder and colder out here Open up the door I lost my keys in the snow Right in front of me I wanna disappear Right in front of me I saw them disappear Most of my life I've been running away from my body Now I've changed course, turned around, heading back towards Every thought that I have when I feel my belly Smile as I lay my hands so lovingly It's still here when the lights go out And I forget what to worry about Pulling me away from a cloud of doubt I wonder where I'd be without my belly I would like to build Trust in my body So that I can find Love for my body From inside of me Love for my body Love inside of me
10.
Over And 04:00
We hang our clothes around the room And hope they dry tomorrow, soon We'll put them away in a couple days the more we wear the less we have to put away And start again Life is full of little things For us to do over and over and over Every day I want to make something new Every day I wanna feel something true Over and over again I stay inside and that's alright As long as I can change my mind I just wanna grow a little every day Close my eyes and think of something new to say And start again How do we hold our dreams And still be free over and over and over I don't think that I could do a single thing Different from what I see when I'm dreaming Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again
11.
I am one Moving part Free together Allowed to feel, to show Slow moving water Flows around I'll find my way
12.
Goodnight 02:58
Goodnight, I'm going to bed It's time to rest my head Turn off the light Sunsets, we pretend we're under them Goodnight, I'm going to sleep Pull the blanket over me Close my eyes Drift away Leave behind another day Goodnight, I'm dreaming now As stories play Beneath my brow Everything's changed But not inside Where memories linger in my mind How long will they hold on

about

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a pandemic album:

created out of a need for comfort

writing this music helped me to find and recognize the comforts that surround(ed) me

I hope that it can provide the same thing to whoever listens, if that's what they need

and in good times, it can serve as a reminder to remember the parts of the hard times that weren't so bad.
