about

Sound Travels is a handful of songs from an introspective time in my mid-twenties.

Countless hours and endless care was poured into crafting this music - I hope it finds a place in your ears, a home in your heart, helps you in your own mind, or simply provides some pleasant pulse to accompany a moment in your life.

Track Name: Where It Lands
[V1] This morning sun ray; it knows me well. I sleep off the daytime; because it’s bad for my health.
Feet touch the ground - what’s left behind, babe? And when the penny drops, I cast the shadows from my mind.
[CH] Let it fall where it lands, like a grain of sand, slipping through my hands, onto a foreign land.
Sometimes I feel like I’m wasting my life. I love the places, but I hate the endless city lights.
It’s in my nature to feel like I’m losing patience, but the future’s what you make it, so until we meet our fate… [CH]
[Br] I wish we had more time with each other, babe… Because I can’t follow the tide or the weather vein… [x2] [CH]
Track Name: Sleep
[CH] Part of life is losing sleep to dreams that make you cry and weep; the other half is losing dreams to things you think you’ve gotta keep
[V] Oh… My nerves are shot, three bottle tops and I feel tipsy, but I’m not tipsy enough; I don’t sleep at night with a sober mind (my nightmares are rough) so I just turn on my laptop. L.C.D.; Lowest common denominator verbal vomit dominating my liquid crystal display~I wonder if our love would have survived? But I know that there’s no harder I could try… Cradle me in the fullness of time. [CH]
[Br] Well I know it’s been your habit to throw too many punches, and I know you do your best to see the best in men; you are a special specimen and I believe in time that time will rearrange itself to fit your best intent. And I know every single word that you have agonised around and then replayed again’s a sign of deep respect, and your immeasurable intelligence… but every conversation doesn't need to be so vital; a moment should be for itself, and not for your survival.
[CH]
Track Name: Settle Down
[V1] I know that you wanted to breathe, but you could not find your lungs… And I know that you found your release, but we wish you would stay with us
[CH] Settle down, I'll see you in the morning. Settle down, (please) don't leave without a warning. Settle down, settle down…
[V2] Well don’t start to believe your own mind, ‘cause it’s a precious thing to lose. If it still hurts when you know that you’re right, then it just might be the wrong thing to do. [CH…] Let me ice that memory for you.
Track Name: Soothe
[V1]Well, this is how it goes - Should we go our separate ways? Or should I wait; for years, or months, or days? Should I grow old? And wither in my face? It don't matter, ‘cause my time, it goes to waste.
[CH] Soothing my wounds, you take them away with you… Soothing my wounds, you don’t know how it feels~
[V2] This is how it goes; We waste the precious days. No show; it's cancelled by the rain. Excited by your face, excited by the pain, it doesn't matter, ‘cause my time, it goes to waste.
[CH]
[Br] Now, I could go through all the ways I care about you, they’re cliches – sit here on a London train, and wonder what I’m trying to say - and I guess I could just simplify, but it’s gets harder when I try… If you cry at night then trust me…
[CH] ...You don’t know how it feels to miss you.
Track Name: Quicksand
[V1] Two glasses on my nightstand (ooh) getting lost in the quicksand, with you.
I don't mind if I do - but you might wanna listen (might wanna listen…)
[CH]
I could serve your groove if you let me,
I could serve your groove (oh yeah)
I could serve your groove if you let me - would you let me in?
I could serve your groove if you let me (If you let me in)
I could serve your groove
[V2] I miss you more than your body, we could be more than a one night stand.
I see through your disguise, see the future in your eyes, and you’re making me a real man...
Time drags on without you, I’m killing time just to fill my days…
I wanna give a little light going back into the night
[CH]
I could serve your groove if you let me,
I could serve your groove (oh yeah)
I could serve your groove if you let me - would you let me in?
I could serve your groove if you let me (If you let me in)
I could serve your groove

If you let me serve [x4]
