Listen: New Song “crutch”

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The new song is finally here, and I couldn’t be more happy about how it turned out.

The song is about realizing I’ve gotten to used to anxiety and self-doubt in my relationships and creativity that I’ve become addicted to it as a false crutch. This song is about trying to shed that dependence.

Lyrics:

How do I write when I’m out of control?
Empty when my head is full?
I wanna tell you
But I’m frozen

I know that Dylan could tell you the truth
But I just sound like cartoons
Please just don’t tell me
I’m not trying

I’m breaking down
The silent sound
That keeps me from saying what I mean
You mean too much
My only crutch
Loving and fighting the things I don’t see

Oh I miss you
I’ve been lost in the noise and it’s killing me
I know it’s you
Step out of the dark so that I can see

I want so much to reach out to you
But every time that I do
I self-restrict it
And resent this

Eruption of color is waiting for us
Only if we learn to trust
We can be playful like kids again

Oh I miss you
I’ve been lost in the noise and it’s killing me
I know it’s you
Step out of the dark so that I can see
