What welcoming was in me then? What calming wind? When my heart had opened up accepting some wisdom Homes full of holes honey dripped in a blue afternoon What is comfort? I am interested! I am interested I'm interested I don't remember getting home Tried to stop thinking Yeah I am fine but not amused Kind but not excused From feeling that weight What is the loss that you've welcomed? Who is the "you" in all your songs? Go wear new clothes my hair grows long Do you know what the dream means now? I was lost but it's okay how I won't remember anything Sing songs to the ground About the way the language changed No great unveiling
On the way home wind is whipping in my hair Night clear in the cold never rested So destructive Fall fell again It felt like dying early nights Cat on my chest your hands in my hair feel alright I feel alright Another droning Same as last year World's getting warmer I'll move north Forgot how it felt to be good Forgot how it felt to be good Slowly a hand comes down A hand comes down


Two songs written and recorded in fall 2016, returned to and released in fall 2019.


released October 25, 2019
