about

This is an exclusive song for 'Death By Sunset' & is about how nobody can see your faults & flaws as closely as you can. It was originally written for my next proper solo album release but I'm too impatient for that & write way too much music!

lyrics

No-one else can see the ugliest parts of me as closely as I can.
My shadow is an addict. Holding on to habits more than I hold your hand.

There is a tyrant inside my heart dictating all the parts of me that are clean to let go of my dreams.

Bathing in the memories like jellyfish in dead calm seas at dusk.
Everything I touch gets stung & every right becomes a wrong.
Trust becomes a faded tattoo.

I'm not sure where this is going or why this is happening to me.
Am I strong or is this armour made of secret dishonesty.
I did not mean to hurt you but these things just fall out of my mouth.
I'm sorry if I'm ugly beautiful.
Please love me for my sins.

All the bridges I have burned.
I guess this outcast never learns to change.
A momentary change of heart that rips my principles apart.
It's strange.

There is a storm inside my soul breaching through the hull & washing away all of my dreams.

Truth be told this vessel's unstable.
I think I'm unable.
Unable to stay still.
But I will see this through.
I'll be nothing like you.
I will not change my course.

And I'll do it all for you.
And I'll forget the rest of me.
Pillars without a roof.
Homeless & lost at sea.
My youth drifts away from me.

No-one else can see the ugliest parts of me as closely as I can.
All the bridges I have burned.
I guess this outcast never learns to change.

about

Music |ˈmyo͞ozik|
noun
1 the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

Music is my life. An oft-used cliché yet nonetheless true for me. I've devoted most of my existence to exploring it in every way & in turn it has enabled me to travel the world & meet new friends all over.

Hope you like my sounds!
