about

"Goodbye, Farewell is a fine album, the sort of quiet little treasure that deserves to be discovered by lovers of soft breezes, fond memories, and wispy melodies that caress both your ears and your psyche." -Kevin Renick (playbackstl.com)

"Goodbye, Farewell is an album that keeps unfolding like some origami puzzlebox, revealing new and compelling layers of sonics, composition, and feeling." -Matthew Moyer (ink19.com)

Track Name: Wide Open
Stand in the dark and scared of the light
Let go of all my feelings tonight
I can't seem to move backward or forward
Feeling my breath become slower and slower

Searching around and around but there's nowhere to hide
Looking for answers but they're so hard to find
With my eyes wide open

Let go of my tears let go of my pain
Cleanse my soul as I stand in the rain
Hearing the sound of my heart beat slower
Wishing that death would take me over

Searching around and around but there's nowhere to hide
Looking for answers but they're so hard to find
With my eyes wide open
Track Name: This Time Around
Why do babies cry and they die
everywhere else but here?
Sitting in my rocking chair,
afraid that laughter will get me down,
will make me cry only to see
I haven't been the man that I wanted
this time around

Dying on the floor, by the door
never forget your name
How I deserve to die
and you need someone who
won't have to cheat, won't have to lie,
won't make you sad, won't make you cry
He'll be everything you wanted
this time around
Track Name: Afraid to Die
Facing death is much too hard, but I am not afraid to cry
Don't know how to play the part, but I am not afraid to try
Life is far from a dream, but I am not afraid lie
Close my eyes and go to sleep, cuz I am not afraid to die
Track Name: Goodbye, Farewell
Goodbye, farewell
Wherever you've gone, you never did tell

This space is hallow, like a busted bell
The clapper is gone and missing the crown

Goodbye, farewell
Wherever you've gone, you never told anyone
Goodbye, farewell
Wherever you've gone, you never did tell

You're pretty vacant, just an empty shell
Far from the sea, farther from me

Goodbye, farewell

Away through the trees, without any leaves
A rope that was hung, you never told anyone

Goodbye, farewell
Wherever you've gone, you never did tell
