about

Written, arranged and recorded in a two day period. I play it much faster and smoother now, but I still can't figure out how to harmonize and whistle with myself. Until then, there's garageband.

lyrics

Wound Tight
2010

I don’t want your love.
And I don’t want your hugs.
I don’t want to hear concerned tones.
I don’t want your caring.
Open door understanding.
I just want to be left alone.

A cup of my favorite tea,
A big book of fantasy,
A soft pillow that I can squeeze,
Ear buds in tight,
No faces in sight,
And maybe this knot inside will ease.

I don’t want to breathe.
And I don’t want to think.
I don’t want to talk about it.
You’ve read all the books.
Given sympathetic looks.
But you don’t seem to know when to quit.

A cup of my favorite tea,
A big book of fantasy,
A soft pillow that I can squeeze,
Ear buds in tight,
No faces in sight,
And maybe this knot inside will ease.

I’m not in denial,
but let me heal at my own pace.
Someday I’ll come around,
but for now get out of my face.

I don’t want your love.
And I don’t want your hugs.
I don’t want to hear concerned tones.
I don’t want your caring.
Open door understanding.
I just want to be left alone.

A cup of my favorite tea,
A big book of fantasy,
A soft pillow that I can squeeze,
Ear buds in tight,
No faces in sight,
And maybe this knot inside will ease.

Just put that cup of tea.
Next to my book of fantasy.
Then I’ll know you hear me.
