Notes: This is the first song I have written and recorded in my new house, which makes it special to me. For much of the last year I have lived across the wall from neighbors who were extremely hostile toward us over noise concerns. The situation was stressful and often upsetting, but I didn't fully recognize how much it was impacting my experience of singing until this evening when I made this song. I didn't realize how much I have been holding back due to the anxiety those neighbors provoked in me. This song isn't the most dazzling vocal performance of my life or anything, but I sang freely and expressed myself without a filter. It felt amazing. I am bowled over with gratitude for a wall with nobody on the other side. What a treasure!


Old and tired
Young and bright
Words aside

August weather
Makes it better
Shine and shake
It's fine

I've been thinking
On my feelings
Old and sudden
Both and

Time can scatter
Moments matter
Shining shaking
It's fine
