Hey guys,

It’s been a long time since I’ve released new material. Too long. This is a song that I wrote and recorded in one weekend as part of a music class I was taking. At the time I didn’t expect to ever release it, but I promised you all some new music, so I spent the past few days re-tracking and polishing up the song.

Almost every instrument — with the exception of drums and the guitars during the second verse — are performed by me in some way. The song is definitely not perfect, but I hope you all enjoy it for what it is. Please let me know what you think in the comments!

All the best,

Wandering around,
a million miles from home.
Searching inside,
for something deep in my soul.
Hoping for a chance
to see myself again
while a part of me

So let it rain
let it all wash away.
and when I’m gone
won’t the world be the same?
and if I’m here
in this moment
can I let go
of the night
let it go]

They say home is where the heart is,
then did I leave my heart back home?
Trying to carry all these memories,
like a turtle and its shell.
But the thoughts I swear protect me,
divide me from the real.
and pain is all I’m after
when I hold myself too tight.

So I will watch
as a part of me


I don’t know
what I’m looking for
but I only hope.
I’ll find some solace
from these words
I can’t define.
I have lost the dictionary,
and I have found.
That a part of me


Let it go…..

Sweet surrender
