Spring 04:24
I love the way you say my name And how I feel when you walk in the room I know exactly why I’m afraid And I’m pretty sure You do too Things will never be the same Things can never be the same Now that spring’s caught me and you I thought that rain would wash it away But the blossoms just fell perfect on the ground That one warm weekend was all it took to make Something new and beautiful rebound Things will never be the same Things can never be the same Now that spring’s caught me and you

Sittin next to you I’m closer to the sun But you go on shining bright I like it warm Sitting next to you Sittin next to you The mountains disappear But you go ‘head take that view I’ll rest my eyes right here Sitting next to you Sittin next to you The river fills up fast But you go ‘head rain right down I’ll build us a raft Sit next to you You walk away If I go home The world falls back in line But I’d rather have it too hot Too close Running wild Sittin next to you

Unprepared 04:00
I was unprepared To feel the air on my face Unprepared To have my cares lifted away So long walking With eyes in the back of my head Guard up and hunting When I should’ve let go instead I was unprepared For how much I’d think of him Unprepared to feel like this again Shifted back like some kind of magic trick A powerful spell I never want to kick I was unprepared For how he looked at me Unprepared For how hooked in I’d be I thought everything was planned Lined up perfect cleared to land But I was unprepared It was the greatest way to be Unprepared for how I’d love his company Just when you think you got it all figured out You’re cruising along then everything breaks down And I was unprepared But I’m so glad ‘cause otherwise Unprepared I’d never have these eyes for him What an unexpected gift Sometimes it’s best to live Unprepared

Unlimited 05:25
Drift down the river Sunset Boulevard The city’s still sleepin, little rain on the bars Clouds gather up over the bowl We’re taking a ride, going out for a stroll I’ve never seen the world quite like this Days like these I am unlimited The ocean’s a painting a Turner unframed Even the fishermen look twice at the color change Iron and gold, pale green it comes A foreign country right on highway one Time stops there’s nothing behind or ahead Days like these I am unlimited Heels of my boots on the worn wood floor I can’t even tell where I am anymore Some kind of fairy tale with a wonderland glow I wasn’t planning on stayin’, now I don’t want to go Take in the power, it fires just like you said Days like these I am unlimited The sun’s coming out and babe, pretty soon The sweet honeysuckle’s gonna burst into bloom And many more mornings will open their arms Give us gifts uniquely ours The best dreams are the ones that are vivid Days like these I am unlimited

Coyote half sight On the rutted roads back behind Evening washes in slow and hopeful Lost in my own town Circling down and down Until I reach your wooded grove The smell of oil and fuel mix with exhaust KJAZZ flickers like a four-stroke Just a rainy night Silhouette tree, the string lights Bedroom windows, doors wide open Lost in my own town Circling down and down Until I reach your wooded grove

about

These songs were recorded on my phone between February 20th and May 26th, 2013, in the Cal State Northridge practice rooms (Spring, Sittin Next to You, Unprepared), and my apartment (I Am Unlimited, Your Wooded Grove).

My last album took three years to finish. I loved that process but thought I'd do something different and just get the songs out to you. So often I feel that by the time the album comes out, the band, the writer, sometimes even the fans are already over the songs. They were written during a specific moment but lost something getting dressed. I didn't want that happening to these tunes so here they are. Thanks for listening.
