Track Name: I Did The Best I Can
and then you dove tailed away
i watched the air slip around your waist
it’s like an ether that fuels me
fuels all my delays

you're like a warm day i conjured
just inches from my breath 
aggressive cuts they scar the most
you're still my light I'm just your ghost

we felt the breadth of time
creeping up our spines
we felt the density of our words
thick between our lips

you’re like a warm day I conjured
just inches from my breath.
aggressive cuts they scar the most
you're still my light I'm just your ghost

you said that love is a young man's game
i'm like, “i'm like this all the time”
cause it's an ether that fools me
makes me think death's far away

you're like a warm day I conjured
just inches from my breath.
aggressive cuts they scar the most
you're still my light, i'm just your ghost
Track Name: Beech Street #1
for Shaela K.

i was a mystery 
a secret carved in a tree
i slipped from my hiding place
made my own space
from paint boxes and auction finds
feathers in glass bottles in line

across the window sill
sparrows in the rain 

remind me I’m not to blame

i’m starting over with 4 strings 

embarrassed to admit I’d mocked the whole thing
made a clown of something dignified
never expected to be on a beach
with no sand in sight

but i’m all right, I"m all right, I'm all right...
