about

What I’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks, and what I may be doing a few weeks longer as finals hit NYU, is sort of like the songwriting equivalent of haiku. This is a short song that set out to be short. Here are phrases and ideas that are hoping to be something complete rather than something truncated due to lack of time to flesh it out. This song is really just a moment in time. It has a little sadness. It has a little happiness. It evokes places and people without ever spelling them out. I wanted it to be a song you could run your fingers over, one with a little texture, like a physical object. Maybe I did that, or maybe I didn’t. I enjoy making these little meditations. If I didn’t have Mount Everest, I’d never bother to make a song so small and simple.

lyrics

Up into the air
Crossing o’er the valley
Something down below
Catches light just like a diamond
What am I to do
But fix my eyes upon it sadly?

Pictures stuck between
Pages of a notebook
Turn them in my hand
Recognize the faces slowly
What am I to do
But fix my eyes upon them gladly
