This is a demo track.

lyrics

I carry heys and how goeses around in my pockets
Lockets of comments and likes but –
This rocket full of things that I actually want to say that blasts off into space, gets lost everyday.

Tuning into the satellite waves while I float...
Rocket high - I look hard - catch a glimpse of your boat!
Paddling alone,
Surrounded by ocean,
Way down on the earth you are always in motion and you are
Entire islands away from me
Almost all the time.

Maybe this is weird, and maybe I'm being a little too sincere – maybe there's just too much fear to have any safety, always falling like tidal waves giving into gravity but from up here –

I want you to know that lately
I haven't been feeling so
Weighty.

And instead of meeting you early it would have been better to have met you lately and not last year.

But I'm not gonna clutch to my pride.

Let it float on a side,
Let it take me back down to earth – tonight – to a different kind of ride and hope that it guides me towards something.
Like feeling alive?

Cuz I'm tired of clutching to strings for survival.
It's taken me time but you're not my rival.
So I wanna know if we can just let go
Of the guard – of the fear.
Have a little less small talk here.
Grab a beer or –
something.
