about

The Season juxtaposes simplicity against complexity. Simplicity in the instrumentation (voice and piano) and production, complexity in the emotions explored.
This EP traces the life and death of a relationship, from the time trouble broods, through the separation and subsequent feelings that follow. Light fades to darkness, but the memory of the beauty and warmth that existed lingers and comforts through even the most desperate moments.
Beauty in sadness.

Track Name: The Season
I met you on a dark day
I promised you the light
I laboured to deliver
I still want to go together

Do you think this will last the season?

As winter turns to spring
And sunlight nurtures everything
I hope you’ll heed the call
Were you ever here at all?

Do you think this will last the season?

I’m holding on to what I fear is gone
I’m holding on to things I thought I’d left behind
I’m holding back when all I want to do is fight for you
I’m holding on to hope

Do you think this will last the season?
Do you know how much I care?

I tried to breach the surface
Too thick to let me in

Do you think this will last the season?
Track Name: Pass the Time
Eyes too sore to sleep, grasp elusive dreams
You pierced me with your almond eyes, saw right through my weak disguise

Heart too scarred to feel, something pure and real
You lost me in a darkened space, a sadness I could not replace

And now you’re a part of me apart from me, oh
I was only here to pass the time
I was only here to slowly die beside

Love that’s good and true, just too much for you
You pinned me to a precious place, then turned around and got away
Something whispered here, ruptured hidden fear
A lucid sense of something lost, you weren’t prepared to pay the cost

And now you’re a part of me apart from me, oh
I was only here to pass the time
I was only here to slowly die beside
Track Name: Stay the Night
You treat my love like it was made for a rainy day
To pass the time, loneliness is not a crime
I called you up, I miss your touch
Comfort alone is not enough

Won’t you stay the night?
Lay here by my side
Even if it’s one last time
Let the loneliness subside tonight

Spring is such an optimistic season
But summer’s gone before it’s barely just begun
Just like this, a fleeting kiss
Was it ever true, or did I only dream of you?

To have you near and run my fingers through your hair
To hold you close, I care for you much more than most

Won’t you stay the night?
Lay here by my side
Even if it’s one last time
Let the loneliness subside tonight
Track Name: Goodbye, My Love
I know what you feel like in the morning
The way you’d drape your arm across my thighs
The brazen sun would force its way in through your windows
And steal you away from the dream you were gracing

I know the way you taste in the shower
The way the water willingly follows your lines
The early light would trickle in through the curtain
And dance across your skin, and illuminate your eyes

Oh, you had me and I felt it
Oh, it’s so hard to let go
Oh, if you’re telling me it’s over
I will for you. Goodbye, my love.

I love your gentle kisses in the evening
The way your scent lingers long in my hair
Knowing you is knowing perfect imperfection
It was so short-lived, the dream I was living

I hear the words your mouth isn’t speaking
Tales and troubles etched in the lines of your skin
Your body knows a language all of its own making
But who am I to deserve a muse so enchanting?

Oh, you had me and I felt it
Oh, it’s so hard to let go
Oh, if you’re telling me it’s over
I will for you. Goodbye, my love.
I will for you. Goodbye, my love.
