about

The keyboard melody came first during the writing process. I enjoy picking up strange instruments at garage sales and this melody was written in 2007 on such an instrument, a Casio Casiotone MT-100, a little toy keyboard. The song was called “Great Divide” for a long time as I was making demos of it. The lyrics for it were finished before we started recording in 2017.

Making Space is a significant song for me on this record - of all the songs it speaks most about what i am going through in my life: a feeling of wanting to erase everything and start over. To blow it all up, “to light the fuse” to see where the pieces may land. This song is me coming into my own in a new way.

lyrics

And so I’ve come, to the great divide
No, not young anymore
I’m checking in to light the fuse
There goes what went before
Taking apart my universe

Making space to pull myself together in a new way
Making space to pull myself together in a new way
Yes, it’s a new day

I seek the woods to thin the veil
To bare my skin to the trees
I speak my heart into the rush
The rustling autumn leaves
Where is the edge of who I am?

Making space to pull myself together in a new way
Making space to pull myself together, to pull myself together

What is a soul against the sky?
A man with a dream as clouds go by?
I want the proof before I die
That it’s all good

Making space to pull myself together in a new way
Making space to pull myself together, to pull myself together
