it was the gold standard, but we drifted
supposed to be more than a temporary stake
not totally worthless, it's still paper

it seems all the numbers and faces are just an allegory

the truth is ideal but, still imperfect
she leaves a deal wanting, save honesty
not looking for polish, not on purpose

and now, everything is just shiny enough to become hazy
things used to have shape and sense

protection from nature, home sweet shelter
the kindness that comes from intimacy
replacing small traumas with such promise

and you and your mane and your shoes and your attitude beckon me
why the pacific northwest?

past may be prologue, but in walks present
believing in one more opportunity
not really deserving, not of your hand

but now, since my head is on straight

i love you
yes, i love you
i will love you
no matter what

no matter what
no matter what
no matter what
no matter what

just you

Electronic musician & singer/songwriter. It has been said that my music is equal parts acoustic guitar, control voltage, and verse. I can't really argue with this.

Also, Joe Biden called me clean and articulate once.
