about

Here's my second acoustic EP. It's just me and my piano! All of these songs I've written and recorded myself, the whole EP has a bit of a "live" feel since it was done in my living room. I hope you enjoy these few introspective songs - sending you all tons of love!

Track Name: Keeping You Accountable
Listen up
This is the only way I can talk to you without hating myself
Listen up
This is the only way I don't feel helpless now
Listen up
This is the only way I an wrangle some sanity now
Listen ip
This is the only way I'm using to keep you

So here's what I don't like
Being manipulated
Being controlled, my body is mine to wield and hold
Being controlled, it wouldn't be me to sit and do what I'm told
So

Listen up
This is the only way I can talk to you without hating myself
Listen up
This is the only way I don't feel helpless now
Listen up
This is the only way I an wrangle some sanity now
Listen ip
This is the only way I'm using to keep you

So here's what I don't like
Sarcastic quips
Out of your lips
Dripping venom, give it a lick
How does it taste?
Not so sweet when you know how it is

Listen up
This is the only way I can talk to you without hating myself
Listen up
This is the only way I don't feel helpless now
Listen up
This is the only way I an wrangle some sanity now
Listen ip
This is the only way I'm using to keep you
Track Name: Guide For Me
I had thought a lot
Bout the other ways out that
I could have taken to figure you out
And I apologize to nobody now cause I am unshaken
It hurts me bad, you'll never know
And that's my gift to you alone
I might be sad, but I'm alive
And unlike you I can survive
So I made it my job to help you unlock your keys to the good life without me around
Taxing road for me

Summer in your hair and you are gorgeous
I see no disguise
You tell me everything that makes you you
Now I'm giving you
All of my brain strength to sort yourself out
Keep myself grey, in the background
I cannot look at you
So I won't til I can tell we both like you
And not just me sitting here thinking about

How I thought a lot
Bout the other ways out that
I could have taken to figure you out
And I apologize to nobody now cause I am unshaken
It hurts me bad, you'll never know
And that's my gift to you alone
I might be sad, but I'm alive
And unlike you I can survive
So I made it my job to help you unlock your keys to the good life without me around
Taxing road for me

Gotta remember the bad stuff so I don't see
The whole thing through pink coloured lenses
Cause I tend to believe it was better, forget
And let down my defence
But I am tough, don't mistake me
For the type who'll pass up a lessonFor ease of the unwise and unwilling
To stick it through the worst of times
And how sublime would that be

I had thought a lot
Bout the other ways out that
I could have taken to figure you out
And I apologize to nobody now cause I am unshaken
It hurts me bad, you'll never know
And that's my gift to you alone
I might be sad, but I'm alive
And unlike you I can survive
So I made it my job to help you unlock your keys to the good life without me around
Taxing road for me

Listen little girl
To the reaction of your broken heart
It made you strong and mad
Put it in a song
Try to replace him with a fading thought
And pretend to talk to your dad
Track Name: Guide For You
Look at me, look at me,
Promise that I won't admit it
I'm a wall, I'm a wall
Take your time, take your time
All it takes to keep me quiet
Keep it up, keep it up

The tragedy is your survival
In direct correlation to
Proximity of the revival of
Me and you
I know what breaks and kills me off is
Twenty times the rub to you
I'm holding up the revival of
Not being in love
I promise that I'm doing this for you
I promise that I'm doing this for you

Make her proud, keep her around
I can hear your mind through silence
Down the road, down the road,
I'm close, I'm close
Gotta calculate my niceness
For the best, for the best
It's taken a lot out of me to
Be as cold as you require
Take it on, take it on
Not good for you, not good for me
Look at us, we're both so tired
Need a minute, give me a minute

The tragedy is your survival
In direct correlation to
Proximity of the revival of
Me and you
I know what breaks and kills me off is
Twenty times the rub to you
I'm holding up the revival of
Not being in love
I promise that I'm doing this for you
I promise that I'm doing this for you

I'm not trying to tell you
How to live I
Speak in suggestion
It's not my place but I
Hope that you are good to you
While I'm not around to take care of you

The tragedy is your survival
In direct correlation to
Proximity of the revival of
Me and you
I know what breaks and kills me off is
Twenty times the rub to you
I'm holding up the revival of
Not being in love
Track Name: I'm Here
So don't you doubt me
For now
I'm here for now
I promise for now
I'm here
So don't you doubt me
For now
I'm here for now
I promise for now
I'm here

I'm here

So don't you doubt me for now
Cause I'm here for now
Don't you doubt me for now
Cause I'm here
