I need to be writing and playing and drawing all the time to feel soothed in some way. So I am always creating things but the actual manifestation of a song usually takes a few filterings of thought, days of unconscious simmering before clarity of a concept or situation comes.
Be near me always, I don’t know where I’ll go but
I will tell you my stories.
On this ocean I’m rolling a wave away from you but
We will roll into each other some day.
For a ripple on the water I’ll pray.
