about

Recorded in my basement with Audacity.
( yes, I know, everyone hates Audacity but I'm still too lazy to learn a DAW)

This is also my first time being able to play out all of the strings that I hear, in my head, thanks to a VST string plug-in I was given, so I might have to go back and add a better string layer to my last release, 'It's Gone'

To follow what's going on with me and all my projects:

lyrics

when I found you
you were reaching from The Dark
out of time
out of phase
unable to restart
it was everything
at once
then nothing
it just stopped

like in my dream
you were gone
nothing I could have done
no one's right
no one's wrong
just good-bye
so long

but
I see your Light on
I see your Light on
I see your Light on
I see your Light on

so where are you now
where did you go
not a word and not a sound (nowhere to be found)
your needs for months on my doorstep
but for mine you're not around
what's left to say
what's left to do
why did I bother
why did you
it's not that hard
it's not that far
it's, like- the least that you could do

and I see your light on
(as you build to fight the demons in your Dark)
I see your light on
(fusing fractures trying to lose thoughts in the sparks)
I see your Light on
(trapped in a corner- hell no matter what you choose)
I see your Light on
(burning bridges scared to have someone to lose)


and I've met you and the likes (and the likes)
so many, many times
a specter of a person who will forever haunt my mind (you're on my mind)


I turned my light off
(mind on fire plagued by endless wakeful nights)
I turned my light off
(thoughts so Dark can't even bring myself to fight)
I turn my Light off
(I tried again but there was nothing in return)
I turn my Light off

this was always just my lesson to be learned:

I see a Light on
I turn my Light off
