about

A couple tunes I wrote, some microphones, and the guitar that helped me along the way.

released June 22, 2016

A proud shout out to my youngest sister, Bailey Ellens, for the beautiful cover painting which so aptly encaptures the heart of this project.

Thank you to Laurel Hall for being a champ with the graphic design.

Finally, a huge thank you to Ben Oegema for all your work recording and mixing. Thank you for so aptly handling our sometimes stubborn recording space and limited microphone library. You really were able to bring this EP to life in the rustic, honest, and intimate ways I had hoped for.

Track Name: Chin Up (Live)
You know what they say,
wait and things will go you're way.
Chin up love, I'm coming home.
When you're scared of it,
but it is every single bit,
chin up love, I'm coming home.

But before I reach the shore,
don't lose what we're fighting for.

Just shout in a library,
don't leave your thoughts buried.
Love is a sanctuary.
When this world is all we've known,
it's clear we've come from dust with hearts of stone.
Chin up love, I'm coming home.

Seems life's made of lists,
but your name never seemed to fit.
Chin up love, I'm coming home.
You'd do anything to get
that glass slipper, to prove you had it.
Chin up love, I'm coming home.

When life's raining sideways
you can't cover your face.
Your shame stands as more than a moment to erase.
When you're hiding from yourself
'cause you don't know what you'll face.
When the world keeps you quiet
to hold you in place.

Just shout in a library,
don't leave your thoughts buried.
Love is a sanctuary.
When this world is all we've known,
it's clear we've come from dust with hearts of stone.
Chin up love, I'm coming home.
Keep your head above, you're not alone.
Track Name: Hide and Seek (Live)
Running in circles,
don't chase me.
Would you believe
I'm scared of the dark lately?
Here's my heart,
do you really want that?
Don't you really want that superman?

Running in circles,
don't chase me.
Would you believe
I'm scared of the dark lately?
Here's my heart,
do you really want that?
Don't you really want that superman?

Doing everything I can to keep you at bay,
saying just enough to make you stay.
Give back my flashes and smoke
and why don't you come play
hide and seek with me?
Hide and seek with me?

Running in circles, don't blame me.
Would you believe that I'm not that free?
Here's my heart,
do you really want that?
Don't you really want that superman?

Doing everything I can to keep you at bay,
saying just enough to make you stay.
Give back my flashes and smoke
and why don't you come play
hide and seek with me?
Hide and seek with me?

Hide and, hide and, hide and seek
Hide and, hide and, hide and seek

I've been waiting around to be let down.
No you're not supposed to see through that...
Track Name: Somehow (Live)
Hem it on my shoulder.
Sew it in our skin.
Subject to time my
mind, it runs again.
Gracefully deceiving,
ink bleeds in.
Goodness, gracious, sin.

Alabaster snowflakes
build a man of whim.
This hollow head of mine
bids me confide in him.
Seasons of our frailty,
love's portrait, she is mine.
Do I know where you go?
That's not the truth I find.

Lonely in your heaven,
you've lived hard enough to know.
That ache inside your bones
bids you up to let love grow.
Wear me down with all you've got.
Chisel to my soul.
Show me how to make it stop,
I fear my head says go.

Loosen all your substance.
Trail it in the wind.
Give me back your words, I
wasn't through with them.
Pour in me compassion.
Reign my spirit in.
I'll be waiting on you,
lover born a friend.

Lonely in your heaven,
you've lived hard enough to know.
That ache inside your bones
bids you up to let love grow.
Wear me down with all you've got.
Chisel to my soul.
Show me how to make it stop,
I fear my head says go.

Tell them I'm en route.
Them them how a new soul came to town.
Tell them fear speaks loud,
still I hear you somehow.
Track Name: Winter Coat (Live)
Don't you hide from me,
you busy little bee.
Though roads may start to steepen,
I won't let you go.

If icy feet start slipping,
and you need someone to lean on.
You know all of my secrets.
I've never closed the door.

Don't you cry for me,
if you're the one who's leaving.
We love in different seasons,
guess I'm your winter coat.

We love in different season,
guess I'm your winter coat.
