PLEASE DON’T TURN YOUR BACK I PROMISE I WILL FIND THE STRENGTH I LACK I SWEAR I’M GONNA FIND YOU IN THE END I’LL BRING YOU TO ME AND IT TELLS YOU TO GO AWAY, THEN IT TELLS ME NOT TO STAY WHAT A SHAME THAT WOULD BE, NOT TO FOLLOW THRU WITH THE ONLY THING THAT EVER FELT TRUE THE ONLY THING THAT EVER MATTERED TO YOU, BUT IT STILL DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT YOU’RE STUCK IN A HALF LYFE, THAT YOU’RE LIVING IN A HALF LYFE...

about

You Found Me is a concept record. A journey, stumbling into long distance love, unexpectedly, not manipulated or coerced into being. A genuine connection that cannot be rationalized. It follows the path of emotions when thrust into a new beginning, not of your own volition, but of something seemingly greater. It grapples with the excitement, joy, pain, fear, confusion and gratitude that becomes all-consuming when entering a brand new unexpected love.
