about

The first and only single from my Bouzouki Songs EP. The accompanying video is all from the places that I grew up, the song is kinda about letting go of this.

lyrics

Goodbye old house,
It's time.
There's flames in your halls,
And mine.

When I packed up my things
Years ago I wasn't traveling light
Brought everything with me but the kitchen sink,
In cardboard boxes enshrined.

Now my house is bursting, ready to explode,
With all the things in my mind.
If I could go back, I don;t know that I would,
I've thought it sometimes.

Picture young streets,
Long nights.
There's blood on my hands,
From short fights.

Now I leave my children,
Bones and dust, eaten by time.
I leave the blame, the things that were said,
The guilt spattered wall.

Footprints and shadows and running up stairs
Dustless sparkle.
Small indistinct figures in darkened rooms
Will one day be tall.

Goodbye, old fire,
Ashen frame.
Goodbye, old ghosts
Now few.

I'm sitting alone again,
Writing this song, writing my book.
Thinking of histories, weighing on spines,
Wood into leaves.
