The streets know our secret They’ll never breathe a word Like the moon watching over us Playing in the dirt Doomed from the start Could it end a different way If life were a movie? I’ll never be happier for you That you found happiness But I’ll never forget how You used to kiss me that way From dark till day Tangled in heat now The meaning’s lost to us If walls could talk We’d have to answer for our love Doomed from the start, Could it end a different way If life were a movie? I’ll never be happier for you That you found happiness But I’ll never forget how You used to kiss me that way From dark till day I’ll never be happier for you That you found happiness But I’ll never forget how You used to kiss me that way From dark till day

about

“The album itself is about repetition, cycles, the same subjects, themes and issues coming back around as if on schedule. Recurring dreams and experiences, and the growth they bring about. The songs were collected over a pretty long period of time, and I am still surprised by the fact that a song like Candle Wax that I wrote 7 years ago before I could really play any instrument ended up fitting on the same album as a song like If Life Were A Movie, which I conceived entirely by myself, about the same subject! The point of view has changed, and it's been interesting to witness and notice that, thanks to Joey actually! He noticed the connection.

The themes have to do with love, destruction, family, work, mental health, self-sabotage, self-discovery, identity, and trauma recovery. I sought a contrast of a smooth, airy mood, and other times it's more choppy and rhythmic. The more I change, the more I stay the same. Instead of fighting and judging it, or seeking to be something else, this album seeks to water the grass it's standing on.”
