about

Guitar and vocals in one-take, then added my new glockenspiel that I got from Goodwill. Recorded with one mic on voice, one on acoustic guitar and another mic recording the guitar going into a 70s Univox Amp.

lyrics

Ragged

Well, I feel ragged
Like a tree that's lost it's leaves
You don't need to say anything to me

It's not hopeless
But the storm waters are getting deep
And I can't save everything

CHORUS
There you are with your light up on my shore
There you are with your foot holding my door
Your hand pulling me up
To make sure that I never drown
Inside my own mind

-
My windows shattered
There is a hole straight to my chest
Don't be surprised by what you see

I am restless
I can't get no sleep
Without you next to me
-
The highway calls me
But not as loud as it did before
But it still knows my name

Easier to be broken
Than to let you fix the broken parts
With twine, glue and open arms
