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.

Track Name: Ill Never Leave U (Feat. Jenny Lee)
I’LL NEVER GO AWAY FROM YOU
I’LL STAY WITH YOU UNITL MY EYES CLOSE FOR GOOD
NEVER BEEN ONE TO STICK AROUND,
BUT THIS DIFFERENT, OUR HEARTS MAKE A DIFFERENT SOUND
DID YOU EVER THINK YOU’D GET THIS CLOSE TO ME?
I DIDN’T THINK I’D EVER BE ONE TO LOVE
IF YOU TELL ME THAT YOU’LL RUN AWAY WITH ME
I PROMISE THAT I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO

SO TAKE YOUR HAND IN MINE, TIME AFTER TIME
IT’S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT WHEN SOULS ALIGN
YOUR EYES THEY LOOK LIKE MINE
YOUR ARMS THEY FEEL LIKE MINE
I SWEAR YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN WITH ME
AND I MAY NEVER GET ANOTHER CHANCE AT THIS
I PROMISE THAT I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO
I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO

AND I CANT BELIEVE THAT JUST THREE DAYS AGO
I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW YOU WERE REAL
THE THINGS YOU SAY TO ME, THE WAY YOU LOOK AT ME
WHAT IS THIS FEELING? DO YOU REALLY EXIST?

SO TAKE YOUR HAND IN MINE, TIME AFTER TIME
IT’S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT WHEN SOULS ALIGN
YOUR EYES THEY LOOK LIKE MINE
YOUR ARMS THEY FEEL LIKE MINE
I SWEAR YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN WITH ME
AND I MAY NEVER GET ANOTHER CHANCE AT THIS
I PROMISE THAT I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO
I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO
Track Name: There Is Nothing Else Around Me
YOUR ORBITS ALWAYS BEEN AROUND ME
CIRCLING SLOWLY, CARE FREE
YOUR COMPASS SET TOWARDS ME
NEVER FULLY KNOWING WHERE IT MIGHT LEAD

YOUR ORBITS ALWAYS BEEN AROUND ME
CIRCLING SLOWLY, TO ME
I NEVER KNEW YOU WERE OUT THERE,
BUT YOU LANDED JUST IN TIME

NOW YOU ARE MY ATMOSPHERE
YOU’RE THE AIR I BREATHE
YOU ARE THE LAND I SEE
TOOK 32 YEARS FOR YOU TO GET TO ME
DID YOU KNOW YOU’D BE
THE ONLY THING I SEE?

YOUR ORBITS ALWAYS BEEN AROUND ME
CIRCLING SLOWLY, SURELY
AND NOW OUR FEET,
THEY CAN FINALLY TOUCH THE GROUND,
CUZ THERE’S NOTHING ELSE AROUND

NOW YOU ARE MY ATMOSPHERE
YOU’RE THE AIR I BREATHE
YOU ARE THE LAND I SEE
TOOK 32 YEARS FOR YOU TO GET TO ME
DID YOU KNOW YOU’D BE
THE ONLY THING I SEE?

AND THERE IS NOTHING ELSE AROUND ME...
THERE IS NO ONE ELSE AROUND ME...
YOU FOUND ME...
Track Name: Half Lyfe
I’M LIVING IN A HALF LYFE
AND IT DOESN’T FEEL ALRIGHT
WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO,
IF IT DECIDES THAT IT’S THRU?
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...

HALF LYFE...

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...

HALF LYFE...

AND I PROMISE NOT TO LET YOU DOWN
WE’RE CHAINED WE’RE NEVER GONNA MAKE IT OUT
SO LET ME SAY YOUR NAME AND WASH AWAY YOUR DOUBT
CUZ THE BOUNTY OF OUR LOVE IS GONNA HELP US NOW...
Track Name: Nothing & Nowhere To Hide
DON’T TURN YOUR BACK,
NOWHERE WE CAN HIDE
MIGHT NOT FIND THIS AGAIN
I DARE YOU TO TRY
I’LL BE WITH YOU
FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE

WE TRIED TO STOP THE RIVER FROM RUNNING
WE TRIED TO MAKE OUR HEARTS STOP TURNING,
BUT THE SIMPLE FACT REMAINS
WE WERE NEVER THE SAME

LOOK AT ME...

AND YOU SAY TO ME
“I KNOW YOU’VE FELT THIS BEFORE,
AND I’M SCARED AS HELL, AND IT LEAVES ME UNSURE
SO PLEASE BE GENTLE WITH ME”

I TAKE YOUR HAND SOFTLY IN MINE
LOOK INTO YOU
WITH NOTHING TO HIDE
I AM YOURS AND YOU ARE MINE...

LOOK AT ME...

DON’T TURN YOUR BACK
JUST LOOK AT ME
I’M STANDING HERE
YOU TREMBLE WITH FEAR
JUST TAKE MY HAND
I’LL WALK YOU THRU THE CLOUDS
WASH AWAY YOUR DOUBT
I WON’T PUT YOU OUT
Track Name: This Is Alone
SO I GUESS THIS IS ALONE
AND I’M GONNA STAY THAT WAY
FOR A LONG TIME
I THOUGHT I HAD A HOME,
BUT IT BLEW AWAY
AND IT’S BEEN A WHILE,
BUT I STILL DON’T KNOW
WHICH WAY I SHOULD GO
I MAY HAVE FOUND A NEW PLACE,
BUT IM NOT GONNA MAKE IT THRU THE DOOR

CUZ YOU DON’T LIKE MY DISPOSITION
AND I CAN’T BLAME YOU FOR THAT
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO INVEST IN THIS CONFUSED MESS?

NO MIX I MAKE YOU CAN SAVE ME FROM THE IMPENDING DOOM
AND I NEVER EVEN MET YOU,
I NEVER EVEN HEARD YOUR VOICE,
BUT I LOVE YOU...

COULD THAT BE TRUE?
HOW COULD THAT BE TRUE?
Track Name: I Think I Might Die
I COULDN’T HAVE YOU IF I WANTED YOU
I COULDN’T LEAVE YOU EVEN IF I TRIED
YOU’RE GONNA HAVE TO PULL THE PLUG ONE DAY
I CAN’T DO IT
I THINK I MIGHT DIE

FEELS LIKE WE’RE ALWAYS JUST AVOIDING
THE ENDING THAT’S ON IT’S WAY
TRUE LOVE GAVE US JUST A FEW SWEET MOMENTS
THEN IT LITTERED OUR HEARTS WITH PAIN

CUZ I’M JUST NOT A POSITIVE INFLUENCE IN YOUR LIFE
YOU’RE ALWAYS LEFT QUESTIONING
“IS THIS WRONG, OR IS THIS RIGHT?”
EVERYTHING IS SO FRAGILE, HOW ARE WE MEANT TO MAINTAIN?
WHEN WE’RE ALWAYS LEFT QUESTIONING
“IS THIS WRONG, OR IS THIS RIGHT?”

DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU MADE A CHANGE
FOR THE BETTER ANYWAY?
YOU’RE PROBABLY BETTER OFF GOING BACK
TO YOUR PREVIOUS DAY TO DAY

ONE WHERE I’M NOT AROUND
SCARRING YOUR THOUGHTS WITH LONLINESS
A FEW SECONDS OF JOY AINT WORTH ALL OF THIS UNBRIDLED PAIN

CUZ I’M JUST NOT A POSITIVE INFLUENCE IN YOUR LIFE
YOU’RE ALWAYS LEFT QUESTIONING
“IS THIS WRONG, OR IS THIS RIGHT?”
EVERYTHING IS SO FRAGILE, HOW ARE WE MEANT TO MAINTAIN?
WHEN WE’RE ALWAYS LEFT QUESTIONING
“IS THIS WRONG, OR IS THIS RIGHT?”
Track Name: In A Sea Of Anonymity
IF YOU SAID YOU CAN’T GET DOWN WITH ME
I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT I’D DO
WE COULDN’T STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING
NOW IT’S ONLY ME AND YOU

SO WON’T YOU JUST TAKE A PLANE TO ME
CUZ IT’S JUST SO PLAIN TO SEE
THERE THERE’S NOTHING STOPPING ME
FROM GETTING NEXT TO YOU

AND I KNOW WE TRY TO FIGHT IT
THE DISTANCE FUCKS US ALL UP
WE DIDN’T KNOW WE WOULD FEEL THIS WAY
SO SICK IN LOVE, WE’RE FUCKED

BUT IT’S ACTUALLY SO BEAUTIFUL
WE JUST AINT ACTING GRATEFUL
FOR THE FACT THAT YOU FOUND ME
IN THIS SEA OF ANONMYMITY

AND IT’S ACTUALLY SO BEAUTIFUL
WE JUST AINT ACTING GRATEFULL
FOR THE FACT THAT I FOUND YOU
IN THIS SEA OF ANONYMITY

AND I SWEAR WE WILL STAY HERE
IN THIS HOME BUILT ON LOVE AND TRUST
IT’LL NEVER FALL DOWN BECAUSE
IT’S BUILT WITH RUBIED BLOOD

YOU ASKED ME TO NAME ALL THE SONGS I KNEW
THAT USED THE G7 CHORD
AND WHEN I COULDN’T THINK OF ONE
I JUST WENT AHEAD AND MADE ONE UP...
Track Name: How Could Love B So Cruel?
HOW COULD LOVE B SO CRUEL?
DELIVERED US A PRECIOUS JEWEL
HOW COULD LOVE B THIS CRUEL?

HOW COULD LOVE B THIS CRUEL?
TO GIVE TO YOU, THEN TURN YOU BLUE
HOW COULD LOVE B THIS CRUEL?

I WASN’T MESSING WITH IT NO
I WASN’T NURTURING IT SO
HOW COULD LOVE B SO CRUEL?

HOW COULD LOVE B THIS CRUEL?
DELIVERED US A PRECIOUS JEWEL
HOW COULD LOVE B THIS CRUEL?

I WASN’T MESSIN’ WITH IT NO
I WASN’T NURTURIN’ IT SO
HOW COULD LOVE B SO CRUEL?

NOTHING TO HOLD
I’M IN THE FOLD
DEEP IN THE CUT
A LOVERS RUT
HOW COULD LOVE B SO CRUEL?
Track Name: 40 Extra Minutes In Heaven
WE COULD NEVER TURN AWAY
FROM THE THINGS WE’VE SEEN TODAY
STANDING IN AN AIRPORT TERMINAL
NERVOUS IN MY NEW FLANNEL
MY PALMS THEY GET MORE WET
WITH EVERY SINGLE PASSERBY
PUSHING ANXIETY TO A PLACE I NEVER KNEW
I WASN’T SURE IF YOU WERE REAL
BUT THEN YOU TURNED THE CORNER
IN A BOSTON RED SOX CAP
YOUR EYES FINALLY MET WITH MINE
JUST A FEW FEET AWAY FROM ME
I REALIZE THAT YOU’RE REAL
SUDDENLY IN MY EMBRACE
NO WORDS WERE EVEN SPOKE
THE AIRPORT DISAPPEARS
YOU KISS ME AND IT ALL CAME CLEAR
THAT WE CAN NEVER TURN AWAY
FROM THE THINGS WE’VE SEEN TODAY...
