about

I wrote this song lying in the attic that was my room growing up. As I reminisced on first love and warm childhood friendships, I realized that I wished more than anything to return to those times in my life. The memories were “framed in gold” in my mind and perhaps if I could just shatter the frame, those past feelings would pour back into my life.

lyrics

I swear that this attic looks warmer in memories,
Back when this world was so vast
I could barely see past it with eyes like these
Ones that are always blind
Caught in the headlights of her own
I froze in the paralyzed pose of an innocent

But I'll take this frame of gold
And throw it down
So all it holds
Is broken out
So let it seep back through my pores
I need life again
I want life again

I swear that this attic looks warmer in memories
To these sheets I cling tighter than anyone's ever held on to me
So I'll grip harder now and sink just as fast as ever before
Cut me loose so I'll fall from this noose that I've tied so tight

Because all I see is proof
In these bitter walls
They scream of truth
They tell it all
This lonely routine cries for a purpose
Does one deserve this?

I'll take this frame of gold
And throw it down
So all it holds
Is broken out
So let it seep back through my pores
I need life again
I want life again
