about

This song was written as a goodbye for my friend Hazel as I move to a different city. Even though we have only known each other for eight months, we became really close during that time and if it weren't for her encouraging me to keep writing songs, I would not have written, recorded, or released Lies or any of the songs on my EP. I love her so much and she means the world to me.
I will miss you, my sweet Hazelfriend, but this is not "goodbye"- I prefer to think of it as "until we meet again".

lyrics

I've spent the last eighteen years in this town
Planning my great escape, just pretending that I'm somewhere else
I never imagined somewhere in all this
I'd find something to miss

But you
Make the world look bright
With all the heart you find
And every piece of mind
In every line you write
These old, familiar streets
Don't look so obsolete
When they're walked on by the painted shoes on your feet

Dadadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadadada

Short, sweet, and simple, just something to play
So my voice is still here when I'm far away
And when they pick you apart, when they make you feel small
Turn it up, drown them out, and remember that

You
Make the world look bright
With all the heart you find
And every piece of mind
In every line you write
These old, familiar streets
Don't look so obsolete
When they're walked on by the painted shoes on your feet

Dadadadadadadadadada
Dadadadadadadadadada

You make the world look bright
With all the heart you find
And every piece of mind
In every line you write
I'm not gonna say goodbye
No, I won't even try
Cause I know that we're not gonna change, you and I

Dadadadadadadadadada

Are you a person who enjoys listening to music? Do you like bitter, depressing piano ballads about abusive relationships, unfulfilled hopes, and how awful the world is in general accompanied by cool, badass cover art? If so, you've come to the right place. ... more
