about

In a lot of ways this track is the exact reason this site exists: to compel me to write and record music under circumstances when nobody in their right mind would write and record music. Pardon me, my throat is ragged from a week's worth of chest cold, and I'm delirious for lack of sleep. I felt compelled to reach for my melodica because it's been a while, and because I needed to hear it. It calms me down. This song is about a bad week, and under the circumstance I can't complain about how it came out. Although the vocals are strained, I like the harmonies. Although the melodica has fallen out of tune toward the high notes, it still has it's authentic earthiness. I'm relieved I squeezed this one in just before Tuesday. Goodnight.

lyrics

Feeling safe
Hiding right behind them city walls
But a wall's a cage
And it captured us all

Feeling strange
Hiding from the rain
Now should it fall
And the streets fill up
And the strangers call

And those lights in the window
Mean nothing at all

Serene
Serene

Feeling frayed
Hide behind your eyelids when they fall
When you lose your edge
And collapse and crawl

Ain't it plain
Right inside the silence of it all
There a slight refrain
And it's just so small

And the crack in the doorway
Means nothing at all

Serene
Serene
