Wrote this on May 1. Recorded it in my living room w/ Will Locker (of BRIGHT * GIANT) on cajón & other percussive instruments.


who are you people?
where did you come from?
what do you want from me?
when will it be done?
how did you find me here?
why won't you leave?
i'll pick a partner and play your game,
if you'll stop questioning me.

we'll dream of each other
until we find our next lovers.

at the end of the tunnel are her eyes
and though i'm almost blind -
i think i spy
a reflection of myself
on the mirror
of her mind
a captured glance
a casual touch
a single moment shared
i'm hers, and she's mine.


released May 12, 2012
Will Locker: cajón, shaker, tambourine
Ben Wantland: everything else.
