A LITTLE BACKSTORY -

This song hits on the beginning stages of a relationship that has potential become something, but at some point, it became a sort of "limbo". This is me just saying... "here I am, but I'm not giving anymore 'til you do"


Meet Me In The Middle

I've never laid my eyes on anybody

Who shines the way you do

You got that pretty girl style others copy

Without the attitude 

 

I'll tell you it's not easy for me to fall in love

Ooh but for you I might 

Even though you might be sent from up above

It's this guarded heart of mine

 

And I will always hold you dear (you know)

If you will meet halfway here (baby)

 

And I will love you if you meet me girl

Meet me in the middle of love 

We could be more if you just meet me baby

Meet me in the middle of love

 

Is it fate or is it consequence

That you and I collide 

'Cause it's not ordinary complements 

That's keeping us alive 

(But what I'm saying is that)

 

I will always hold you dear

If you will meet me halfway baby baby please?!?

 

And I will love you if you meet me girl

Meet me in the middle of love 

We could be more if you just meet me baby

Meet me in the middle of love

 

I don't want to be just another guy 

Who always tells his heart another lie

Just meet me baby baby baby please? 

 

And I will love you if you meet me girl

Meet me in the middle of love 

We could be more if you just meet me baby

Meet me in the middle of love

I'll love you if you meet me baby

Meet me in the middle of love


A LITTLE BACKSTORY -

Carry You is interesting songwriting context in that the whole thing can be taken from two sides of the same topic. On one hand, I'm upset and venting about the relationship ending, and on the other hand, I'm no different because I am pursuing my dreams just the same way that she was. It's a special song to me because I was able to channel a ton of stuff that had been building up in the back of my mind over time. 


Carry You

Well I tried to save the sunset

Thought you could make it if you went out west

Ran away to the circus of fortune and fame 

Tied yourself to the madness just to make a name

 

Not all who wander are as lost as you

Not many have the nerve to risk it all and lose 

A carnival of faces in a sea of the bold

Searching for your fountain so you never grow old

 

And should the wings you make give way

 

I will always carry you 

As reckless as your heart

You can't help what you choose 

 

We both know it's easy to walk away

Split decisions are the best when no one pays 

But 'til the cost of dreamin' catches up to you

You'll gamble for things that you never knew 

 

And no matter what it takes

 

I will always carry you 

As reckless as my heart

I can't help what I choose

 

Perpetual chase at arms length 

Always reaching for something you can not obtain 

Faith it's such a waste 

Holding on to a moment that just replays 

 

In the mind is where it stays

 

I will always carry you 

As reckless as my heart

We can't help what we choose

I will always carry you 

As reckless as we are 

We can't help what we choose 


A LITTLE BACKSTORY - 

The song that really started this EP. A tune of sweet revenge, I was literally laying on the floor in my room at 2am all bummed out about this girl and how she left. The chorus is verbatim what she texted me one night. As you can imagine, I was distraught over the fact that she had the audacity to say "you'll get over me, but it won't be easy". Fast forward and I had gotten over her just like she said I would, but now she wants to get back together. It was the sweetest revenge to say the exact words she had said to me and in the same fashion, but now the roles were reversed. I'm not a vengeful person. I'm a lover, not a fighter. But I just could not resist the sweet taste of revenge. 


It won't be easy

It's 2am and I'm not laying fast asleep

What's on my mind is killing all my counting sheep

I can't hold back these lonely teardrops anymore

Thoughts of lost love have got me sprawled out on the floor

And she said

 

There's really nothin I can say 

Except that I am sorry 

You'll get over me someday 

But it wont be easy

 

Just like the trees 

That need the rain to grow old

So too, love needs 

All this pain or so I'm told

It's not my place to tie her down 

But I'm tired of chasing her around 

And she said

 

There's really nothing I can say 

Except that I am sorry 

You'll get over me someday 

But it wont be easy

No it won't be easy

 

Yea it was hard at the the start

But now that I've fallen apart 

I've had the chance to rebuild my heart

And now I'm sitting on a cloud 

And you're on your knees 

Just begging me 

Saying "us" and "we" 

And "baby please don't leave me"

But time and patience is growing thin

You had your chance and you threw it away

So don't look so sad when you hear me say

 

There's really nothing I can say 

Except that I am sorry 

You'll get over me someday 

But it wont be easy

No it won't be easy


A LITTLE BACKSTORY - 

 


(I Can't) Sleep Through This

I've been roaming around this lazy town 

For far too long my feet have never left this ground

Scared to fly afraid to fall

Through my fear I start to crawl 

As soon as I get up I hit another wall

 

And I'm feeling the sun set on the night 

These dreams won't come

 

I can't sleep through this

Tell me this love just don't exist 

It's now or never, once and for all

Could you pick me up when I call

Cause I can't sleep through this

 

Good is good but good's not good enough 

I stumble around thinking about how nothing's turning up

Trapped in the middle of said and heard

I'm tired of waiting for something work

Ain't no moonlight gonna be my cure

 

And I'm watching the sun rise on the night 

Fighting another dawn 

 

I can't sleep through this

Tell me this love just don't exist

It's now or never, once and for all

Could you pick me up when I call

'Cause I can't sleep through this

 

I can't sleep through this

Tell me this love just don't exist 

It's now or never, once and for all

Could you pick me up when I call

Cause I can't sleep through this

 

No I can't sleep through this


A LITTLE BACKSTORY -

San Francisco

I haven't had the chance to say I'd miss you

But I wanted you to know

One last romance and one last kiss to 

Finally let my feelings show

Please don't go 

To San Francisco 

 

Standing at the doorway to your future 

And all your hopes and dreams 

The selfish part is I don't want to lose you

And for everything it means 

I wish you wouldn't go

To San Francisco  

 

But I know you'll love the city lights 

I know you'll love the flood of people walking by

And I know you'll find your way back home, in time

But don't forget the people that you left behind

We already miss you and haven't even said goodbye 

 

As much as I hate to see you go now

I couldn't bear to have you stay

Even with every word I wrote out

 

I couldn't hold you down that way 

That's why you have to go

To San Francisco 

 

Cuz I know you'll love the city lights 

I know you’ll love the flood of people walking by

And I know you'll find your way back home, in time

But don't forget the people that you left behind

We already miss you and only just said goodbye 

 

And at the end of every darkened day

We can watch the moon and not feel so far away 

And If you came back to me you'd see the light 

Mistakes I've made are left so far behind 

And if the tired hands of fate decide 

That our two broken paths collide 

I'll wrap you up in arms so tight 

And love you --- right this time

 

Don't go don't go

Don't go don't go nahh

Don't go don't go

Don't go don't go nahh

 

But I know you'll love the city lights 

I know the Golden Gates will welcome you inside

And I hope you'll find your way back to me sometime

But don't forget everyone

Don't forget me

Don't forget everything that you left behind

I guess this song is just my way to say my last goodbye
