about

This is one of my first tunes ever, written back in high school. It made an appearance because 8 years later it still said something relevant to me. It was also one of the most fun tracks because it was the initial excuse to get strings involved in the recording process, and I couldn't have been happier with the results.

lyrics

The rain crashed down, I stood in the street
Rolled down bare arms off my fingertips and made puddles at my feet
The street lamps light lit hazed, but the message is clear
I bow my head in praise wishing you were here
I'm wishing you were here

Now I'm crippled and shunned as has always been done to those who perceive
And I hate to bare weakness but I fear that in this, I've lost faith in belief
So don't you say that I've bid you farewell
When compassion reigns you'll see that I've never left

What if we all gave up at once, gave up on the thought that others need
And what if all this world had forward to see was the backs of those concerned with greed
I read a letter that said missing child, I thought, excused what could one man do?
I through the picture to the wind and see what it has lead me too
The pain of having given up, the loss of human faith
Compassion grips on sweetened lips, the cry, "what have I done for this?"

Oh please, don't give up on me...

The rain crashed down, I stood in the street
Rolled down bare arms and reminded of taste, bitter with defeat
The street lamps light lit hazed, but the message is clear
I spend my remaining days wishing you were here
I'm wishing you were here
