Say what you'll say Do what you'll do Be who you'll be It makes no difference to me Know what you'll know Play me a fool Cut where you must to heart's covered in dust Hide what you'll hide Come when you may Trust who you'll trust And just leave me out in the cold Well you can see Whatever you will see You can paint my pretty picture You can write me in a song But you'd be wrong You'd be wrong Write home a letter Fill it with tears Tell all your family I went crazy after all of these years Throw the first stone Watch it fall short Inches from contact And you're begging, begging for more Well I saw the light when I learned the truth This woman inside isn't who you said she needed to be So go write my profile Go write my biography Go around town telling my life story It'll only show how you never knew me at all
Mother's Day 04:27
I may be made of wood And I may know how to float I may take to deep waters, honey I may take passengers I may be a harbinger of doom Some men may tattoo me on their bodies But you've got to know I am not your boat And you've got to see You will send us both To the bottom of the sea Cause I'm no Man's boat, I'm no man's boat I'm no man's boat I may dream in islands And I've explored uncharted lands And I'm afraid of fathomless depths And I may keep moving on even when the storm is strong But I've carried you for far too long Darling, the time has come To sink or learn how to swim Darling, a leak has sprung And I only have the strength For the weight of one The weight of one The weight of one
Goodbye Town 05:08
Farewell to Main Street Hello to Goodbye Town Goodbye to all that we've known and ever talked about Welcome to your new day There's rain, but I've heard there's sun, that comes, that comes When you hang around When you hang around In Goodbye Town Don't you bother putting your roots in the ground It's Goodbye Town Isn't it nice to know you belong somewhere now? It's such a strange thing to find something you've known so well Pulls back the layers to show a side they'd never tell And here you stand in the underbelly of denial But don't you worry it took us all quite awhile To call this home Farewell to hometowns Goodbye to debutante balls Goodbye to all those late-night advice calls Welcome to your new nomadic home address It's fine, you'll find there's much less stress When you live alone
Waverly 04:30
Million dollar houses and cobblestone sidewalks You and me in a brief escape Madness lurking outside these gates And I never want to leave you here If I do, will you just disappear? Baby, won't you walk with me down the streets of Waverly? Turn off the clock for an escape to our secret place and time Baby, won't you walk with me? Stolen glances from dog-walkers passing by Not touching hands it says so much This distance, between you and I And I never want to leave you here If I do, will you just disappear? If only for one hour We can pretend That we're growing old together We live in that big house on the end And I am yours and you are mine And isn't this a fine life? Isn't this a fine life?
Fall 05:02
How many times must I tell you that you're beautiful Before it finally sinks in? How many words does it take to say you're wonderful And that this life without you, it ain't shit? Every time you look in the mirror And what you find makes you cry You take yourself down a road That makes you difficult to find But if you'd only let me hold your hand I'd show you, show you How I love the skin you're in Let me show you How I love the skin you're in How many times do the tapes play on rewind Taking you back to years before? How many tears must it take for that old well to run clear, so you can see what I see now? And you can fall, fall too pieces It'll be alright Just fall, fall into these arms They'll catch you every time How many flaws do you you think it'll take to make me pause, make me rethink all I know is true? Like how many stars can light up the sky just like a full moon? None babe, and that's how I see you.


Thank you so much for listening to Goodbye Town. It’s a concept album, written in 2 weeks after a burst of inspiration. It depicts a very real story, my story, from a very difficult and life-changing time for me many years ago. It’s a delicate and honest story, and my hope is that you’ll find yourself inspired to tell your own tale boldly after listening. Our heartbreaks are our gift to share and we must believe that they can change the world.
