2020 Suite

This suite of three tracks is among the most personal and intimate I have written to date. I like to think each track can stand on its own individually, but they are intended to be experienced in sequence:

  • Part 1: Broke the Code is a song of self realization; waking up and realizing that you haven’t been your true self for a very long time.
  • Part 2: All I Am is a love song for Shelley. I’ll leave it at that.
  • Part 3: Fall on Me reflects on the craziness of 2020, but offers listeners a bit of comfort in the midst of our shared madness.

Part 1: Broke the Code

Lit the match
Burned the bridge
My eyes are red and tired
From staring at the fire

The fever finally broke
and much to my surprise
after years of silence
I woke to realize
how strangely I missed you

Touched a nerve
Broke the code
I'm not the same
Somehow no one knows

The fever finally broke
and much to my surprise
after years of silence
I woke to realize
how strangely I missed you
Part 2: All I Am

I'm not afraid to be forgotten
I'm afraid that I'll forget
I'm afraid it's all a dream
In some one else's head

You're deep in my veins
You're under my skin
You're all that I am
You're where I end
You're where I began

I'm not afraid to be alone
I'm not afraid to be in pain
I'm afraid I won't be strong
When you need me to be strong

You're deep in my veins
You're under my skin
You're all that I am
You're where I end
You're where I began
Part 3: Fall on Me

When the smoke has cleared
And the dust has settled
When the media
Have all gone home
When there's time to think
and time to grieve
but time won't heal your soul

You can fall on me

When the day is long
And your body aches
And your mind - it feels on fire
And it's hard to sleep
And hard to breathe
And hard to still believe

You can fall on me.
