about

This album contains 4 songs that I wrote after a breakup in 2012. I recorded the songs to video and posted them to YouTube. In the 4 years since, I was busy with other activities. At some point, I would like to record these songs and post them to BandCamp and other music sharing sites.

Track Name: when it was us
When it was us
E C#m
I don't know who you've become
B A
Since you've gone away
E C#m
All I know is I feel numb
B A
I always thought you'd stay
F#m
But you found somebody new
A
And you didn't let me know
E D A
So I could find somebody else
F#m
I don't miss who you are now
A
But I miss the way you were
C#m B
When it was us
E B
When it was us
C#m A
When it was us
E B
When it was us
C#m A
When it was us
F#m
One day you'll turn around
A
When you hear the sound
E D A
Of the songs we used to sing
E B
When it was us
C#m A
When it was us
F#m A
Underneath your skin, we'll have Paris and Berlin
E D A
We were traveling
F#m
But you've thrown it all away
A
I thought that you would stay
E D A
I guess I was naive
F#m
I'm the dreamer that you'll miss
A
When you have no one to kiss
E F#m A
And I'm with someone else
A Ab/E F#m Ab/E A
And you'll be miss-ing me
E B
When it was us
C#m A

Track Name: there is a time
There is a time
D F#m Bm D G Bm A A
These are the days when we became us
D F#m Bm D G Bm A A
These are the ways when we became us
D A
There is a time, to hold on
Bm G
To rest your head upon
Em B
This shoulder of mine
G A
In your eyes I'll shine
D A
There is a time to let go
Bm G
Of the moments that we know
Em B
A time to move on
G A
When what we had is gone
D A B G
There is a time
D A G A
There is a time
D A
Goodbye, don't forget
Bm G
The night that we first met
Em Bm
Driving in your car
G A
Looking for a candy bar
D A
Goodbye, don't forget
Bm G
Never regret
Em B
The memories we made
G A
And the music that we played
30 days
G D A Bm G
It's been thirty days, since I've seen your face
D A A
It's been far too long this time
G D A Bm G
It's been thirty days, it's you I can't seem to replace
D A A
You're the reason for this rhyme
D A Bm G D
You were the melody, I was the muse
A Bm G D
You chased this stranger, I was the one to choose
Bm G
This perfect circumstance
D A Bm G
The space between, left room for us to dance
D A Bm G
An unexpected and welcome romance
G D A Bm G
It's been forty days, since I've seen your face
D A A
It's been far too long this time
G D A Bm G
Everywhere we went, you have left a trace
D A A
Don't throw it all away this time
D A Bm G D
I was the melody, you were the muse
A Bm G D
You chased this stranger, I was the one to choose
Bm G
This perfect circumstance
D A Bm G
The space between, left room for us to dance
D A Bm G
An unexpected and welcome romance
D A Bm G D
Thank you, for taking the chance, on me
A Bm G D
Thank you, for taking this dance, with me
A Bm G D
Thank you, for taking the chance, on me
A Bm G D
Thank you, for this romance, with me

the end is just the start of something new

sometimes it's better to be on your own

You don't have to leave this way. No goodbye, no reason to stay.

New friends in a new place is what you'll find.

A B C#m Ab/E
I was the melody. You were the muse.
A B C#m Ab/E
Trust lost, you found, the perfect excuse
F#m E B
"I had my doubts", you said
F#m E B
Then quit playing the victim in your head
chorus
E B C#m E E A
We were lighting candles inside the belly of the whale

A burden tossed from the ship. The storm is pacified
C#m B
It's left an empty space

Credits descend, far too slow

Remember to call my name when I pass by

Hold your dreams to understand gravity's a lie

the world it looks so different now, one foot has left the ground

But I can't find your face

It's left an empty space
