about

The most wonderful thing about truth in music, or in any art as far as i'm concerned is the clarity you get after, when its recorded and the problem that prompted the art becomes clear. The personal is political.

lyrics

All it took was one move
one gesture
and its out of frame
so i hold stories
to the roof of my mouth

so i had secrets
till there was nothing left
and she heard whispers
about the past i had
and no telling what they knew

all i need is one pause in the talking
so i can show you these hands
that you've made sincere.

and i've had some lovers
and maybe so have you

and i've hurt some others
and helped some too

its never so
black/white
so out of frame
always gray

its useless to contest
past regret
for all it took
was one slight detail

so you can love me
i want you
to love me
like i have nothing left to give
