Echodream 03:40
you are everything to me you mean everything to me there's nothing else left to see the world is empty and maybe the stars are lonely but humming sweetly for you and me the sky's our cover - and pillow leaves the world is free for you and me the world is free for you and me
My Queen 02:40
if you could be in my fairy tale... if you could be my queen... if you could be in my storybook... if you could be my queen... why won't you be my queen? can I be your king?
Riverside 03:03
4th of July 04:30
4th of july just you and i and on the rooftop we sit and stare forever a velvet night but sparks shine bright the fireworks blare and we will be together i wait for you to ask me to hold your hand but you sit quietly you're like the stars, beautiful and far i'd like to take you to another place and hold you in my arms just let the shooting stars guide us if only you would, only would (so she reaches over and kisses me on the cheek ...the answer i was hoping for)

“he has taken the post-rock instrumental as a starting point and composed some fragile and atmospheric songs over that backing”
- Feedback Issue 74

“tales of heartbreak and despair... often times recalling Luna and the early brooding Hood material”
- Chris McFarlane, IndiePages
