Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Homegrown music: "The Fall"

About a month ago I asked Matt Davis if he wanted to collaborate on some songwriting. If you know Matt, you know he's a gifted writer for prose and poetry alike. The proposed arrangement: Matt writes the words, and I write and record the music.

This is the first of several. Read the lyrics below.

So far he's sent me seven sets of lyrics. Each one is a thing of beauty, and I can't wait to show you the rest.

The Fall

The leaves have fallen,
I'm still awake.
Wondering where you are tonight.
Autumn and auburn,
Slivers of grey,
Passively losing the fight.

Winter should swallow
My endless pride.
But I'm too big for that now.
I'd say I'm sorry
If I knew what for
You wouldn't care anyhow

This season has no time for crying.
Winter's just coming too fast.
Instead of taking the fall,
It took you instead
I'll never forgive you for that.

Marbled memory
Two sacred dates
Wondering where you are tonight.
Cobblestone walkway
Leads me to you
Something just doesn't feel right.

This season has no time for crying.
Winter's just coming too fast.
Instead of taking the fall,
It took you instead
I'll never forgive you for that.

I miss you.
I do.
You took my spring and my summer
And left me with fall.
I'll never forgive you for that.
