Original Song: Drift

Standard

 

Drift

Can I just lay my head right here

on that nook right below your chest?

The spot that I fit best.

Can I lay my head?

 

Can I just drift away, sink deeper?

I know later I’d pay it for a price,

but it’s worth this moment

just to get a chance to drift.

 

I should have met you later.

I should have asked what brought you here,

and flattered every inch of you

’cause I don’t know if I’ll get to.

 

You know, you’ll have to let me go?

I told you from the start. It goes to show

that I know everything.

Except if I should lay my head.

Platform – Original Song

Video

I wrote this song after a long bike ride.  I had outlined a snazzy piano riff earlier that day and believed it could sustain an entire song.  So I poured myself a glass of wine, snuggled down into the piano bench, and developed what eventually evolved into “Platform.”

I needed to write this to let go of the last few flecks of heartbreak.  I needed to write it to avenge my own personal injustices of love maintained; to plant some glimmer in the rubble left behind.  As the title suggests “Platform” is about raising someone up.  Lifting them and supporting them while they walk all over you.  Metaphors.
