about

Here are the demos for "She's Gone". One take, creaky piano bench and pedals, no click track. Sloppy but really honest recordings.


Are these songs about a girl or are these songs about this city?
Either way the feelings the same

Track Name: She's Gone
You think a prayer will bring her back?
Maybe some positive thinking?
While ya hope it’s all a bad dream


Cause she’s gone and you keep pretending
She’s lying there


Thinking about the things she said
And thinking how it could be different
If you could do it over again


But she’s gone and you keep pretending
She’s lying there


She’s gone and your heart breaks she’s gone
She’s gone and you can’t believe it’s true


Are these songs about a girl or are these songs about this city?
Either way the feelings the same


Cause she’s gone and you keep pretending
She’s lying there


She’s gone and your soul aches she’s gone
She’s gone and you can’t believe it’s true that she’s not lying next to you anymore
Track Name: It's The Heartbreak That Defines
The first kiss is kinda cool
Just before things turn cruel
What you thought was innocent and true
Will always trouble you


It’s the heartbreak that defines


It will follow you wherever you go
It will introduce you to everyone you'll know
It’ll be part of your soul
Constantly trying to take control


It’s the heartbreak that defines


It’s the heartbreak, it’s the forbidden fruit that opens your eyes


Everyone's looking for a fix
While we betray each other with a kiss
We’re all heart inside and out
Driven by love and plagued by doubt


It’s the heartbreak that defines
Track Name: It Won't Mean A Thing
You’ve got a heart full of broken promises
I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing
You've got a million reasons to strike back and
I’d tell ya that I love you but won’t mean a thing


You should really come with a warning sign on your face
But I guess ya kinda already have one


You’ve got a mouthful of stinging curses
And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing
You’ve got a head full of really bad ideas
And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing


Do you really think everyone is wrong but you?
Do you really think everyone is just out to make your life worse?


You’ve got a fist full of reasons to be mad
And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing
You’ve got an earful of what you want to hear
And I’d tell ya that I love you but it won’t mean a thing


There’s no way that anyone will change your mind
But I guess I learned that the hard way
Track Name: I'm Always Thinking About Her
A little confused about what I’m singing?
Yes she was a girl
But not flesh and blood


Does it really matter
The pain is universal
When someone leaves who you thought would always be there


I’m always thinking about her

She used to sing our song so sweetly
You could hear her all through the street


I heard a band playing on the corner
So I asked of they could play our song


They just laughed and said
They didn’t know it


Launched into something I never heard
And everyone else sang along

I’m always thinking about her


She used to sing our song so sweetly
You could hear her all through the street
