about

These tracks have a dark and dreamy old-school vibe reminiscent of The Cure, early New Order, Clan of Xymox, or 90s romantic goth/darkwave sounds.
"Your Scars on Mine" and "Seeker" are a pair of dark love songs that take place in the real world, each penned and sung by one half for the other. Taken from the forthcoming full-length release "Flightless." "Flutter" is a short, quasi-instrumental flight of fancy unique to this release.

Track Name: Your Scars on Mine
Though so very far, far away
I can feel your heart beating
the same rhythm as mine
as the night steals the day
Too many times, left bleeding
by the ever-changing seas
Lives lived in half-dark,
too many miseries
But it's through the sorrows we live with
that we learn to see, and to smile

Lives in parallel lines
intersect when your eyes meet mine
and the sorrows drown when your deep, dark eyes shine
and the sorrows drown when your scars meet mine

Tides ebb and tides flow
you kiss me with, with your soul
we try to swim through the undertow
And though we get caught up
in the drift of it,
we've always known how to get through it

And I won't judge you, you won't judge me
It can't hurt us, if we just believe
we're better than what we've done
just trust in what we can become

Lives in parallel lines
intersect when your mind meets mine
and the sorrows drown when your deep, dark eyes shine
and the sorrows drown when your scars meet mine

Lives in parallel lines
intersect when your lips meet mine
and the sorrows drown when your deep, dark eyes shine
and the sorrows drown when your scars meet mine
Track Name: Seeker
Endlessly searching alone,
looking for you
Walking in circles alone,
wasting my youth

Such lonely footsteps
I lost my way
My empty footprints
Break the heartache

Miles and miles of my life,
endlessly seeking
aching the ache of all aches
Then I saw those eyes,
and I knew

Such lonely footsteps
I'll find you someday
My empty footprints
Break the heartache
