Sing-along

I recorded this in 2008 – how old was I 24? I wrote a lot of music when I was living in Texas. My life existed at night. I would wake up at noon and go to sleep at 4am just in time for the birds to help me to sleep. This was a very lonely time in my life. I had just graduated from college, left my love, my friends, my home and wound up in a place I had never heard of before. I had a guitar, which I couldn’t and still can’t play very well, but I knew a few chords and I watched my brother and dad play. I remember my brother teaching me the “easy version” of “Free Falling,” by Tom Petty. I wrote this in 2006 when I was 22. I didn’t record it until 2008 when, at the time I was living in Pennsylvania. Pat was with me again after 3 years of living apart. It’s just a song – a gritty song recorded with lots of feedback and some subpar guitar playing (forgive me for that), but it’s a song that reminds me of where I was and where a part of me still is. I haven’t listened to this in a looooong time. Fuck it. Here goes. Just make sure your volume is already a bit low – it’s a little rough. =)
