This song is about the impermanence of everything in life. Everything we see and feel is transient, learning to let go and enjoy the ride might be one of the most important things we can strive for!

This song marked a lot of first times for me. This is my first solo release where I gave myself the challenge of self producing and performing all of the instruments. It was also the first time I brought my wife Melissa in to the studio for added harmonies. Our voices really melted together in a unique way which I think added some interesting texture to the song.


Every tide is turning
I can hear the storms coming down again
then it finds me, somehow
no masquerading
something's been broken for a while
we've gotta let it go somehow

Don't torture me with all your love tonight
(Torture me don't torture me)
Don't torture me with all your love tonight
(torture me don't torture me)
cuz everything has its time to die

leaves turn to embers
falling like ashes from the sun
and they just fall to the ground without holding on
but soon its a new season
and what went up's gotta come back down
then back up around again
