about

I recorded this very late at night in my apartment in Pella during my Central College years (2004?). The recording setup I had wasn't great, but being a music major I was itching to record or create any way I could. This song is somewhat a confessional and/or a prayer.

lyrics

Forgive me
like someone who couldn't see
all the things I have done
and the ones that I have wronged.

Won't you save me from safety?

I give to you
all the secrets but you knew
all the sins in my life
and the soul that I can't find.

Won't you save me from safety?

If you wanna run
but you can't find what you need
it's so wonderful.
And I'm hoping that you'll come.
Will you call me on the phone?

I'm nothing so grand.
My life is so bland.

If you wanna run
but you can't find what you need
it's so wonderful.
And I'm hoping that you'll come.
Will you call me on the phone?

Often times we say
true love won't go away.
All believe the same.
And so I lay
beached and so dismayed of love.

I found my way over to your ocean,
but I could not swing through.
And so I give all of my devotion
to something pure and blue.
