about

I wrote this song with a persistent headache. I didn't want to be writing music, but that's part of this project. Sometimes I need to sit with a song even when I don't have the feeling for it. Sometimes I have to push through some unpleasantness to stay true to my commitment to this thing. By necessity, I drifted into something gentle and quiet. The song speaks of traversing darkness, and coming out the other side. Maybe right now it's about a physical pain, but it's also an emotional experience I'm familiar with. Listening back, the song is simple and soothing. I'm glad I pushed through to write it.

lyrics

In the clearing
See the forest I've been

In the clearing
See the forest I've been

And the feeling is old
And the feeling is old

In the morning
See the night that I've been

In the morning
See the night that I've been

And the feeling is old
And the feeling is old
