about

I wrote this in late 2016 around the time that I realized that I had to change my life. I had grown stagnant and complacent and lost touch with reality. I wasn't sure if my life had any meaning to anyone and felt selfish even thinking that I could mean something to someone anyways. I've never wanted to be a burden on the people I meet so I distance myself and then wonder why I did that and why no one would reach out to me. But this song is kind of about that but also letting people know that I still love them even though I'm distant and quiet. It's also about falling in and out of love and wanting to find someone to spend my life with. There's a lot of subtleties in here and I don't think they need much explanation. It's the most simple song I've written but the lyrics are some of the deepest.

I always thought that I was someone
I always thought I'd make you proud
I always thought I turned the light off
When I snuck out of your house

There's something I've yet to find
There's someone I forgot
There's something I must find
Or leave me behind

I always thought I'd never leave here
I always thought the train rolled by
I always thought you'd leave a light on
When there were tears left to cry

There's someone I must find
There's something I forgot
There's someone I've yet to find
Or leave me behind

Will you turn the light off for me?
Will you leave the light on when I leave?
Won't you sing an old soul song with me?
