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. - - - ©2000-2020 Glen S.
