Here is a new single. It's sort of a psychedelic campfire song? I'm not even sure what I mean by that, but it seems appropriate for some reason. It's also one of my least sad songs to date, whatever that says about me. It's something that happens from time to time, in which I see someone who captivates me such that I feel a strong personal relation to them, despite knowing nothing about them. Usually we look at each other a little then carry on with our respective lives. But it sticks with me. Is that weird? Possibly. Here's a song about it.


Hey there
I'm sorry if you catch me staring
I know it's out of line
it's just a tendency of mine
and I'd love to say hello
if I were daring
but I'm not

And even if I did
you would have every right to flee
I'm just a hopeless guy
and your presence caught my eye
because for some reason
it looked like hope to me

But maybe if I could get the guts
to think of something to discuss
we could find a spark that might combust
into a warming light of trust
if that could make you smile

We could listen to records in my room
we could stretch my threads across your loom
we could watch some colorful picture bloom
and part the torrents of my gloom
at least for a little while

And by
now I
probably seem crazy
but I'd still love to try
there could be a life for you and I
it could happen maybe
but probably not
