Sleep is a tricky thing for me. Staying asleep is often as hard as falling asleep, which is too bad because I really love a good snooze. Waking early in the morning can be stressful, because I have to race against the clock to get back to sleep before my alarm goes off. But if I've got nowhere to be and no reason to get up, I often enjoy a sudden waking moment at sunrise. The colors are a warm blanket, and the prospect of returning to my slumber is a long, satisfying exhale. This little tune is kind of a lullaby to myself on those rare, wonderful sunrise mornings when I have the time to drift away again.

Over the next few days, I will ponder the profundity of writing 300 songs in 300 weeks. If you return next Monday, I will sing you a song about it.


I don't know where I am
Hot light
The horizon at dawn
Hold out
For an hour or two
Hold out
'Cause I'm dreaming of you


released August 8, 2016
