Bio

Carl Jung said it simply : "Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible."

I don't think I'm a lonely person. I am fairly articulate and secure in my ability to communicate my passions to others. But I started to realize one day that almost everything I write comes from a place of intense loneliness. The chords or melodies or words sometimes just make themselves known, and I don't know to whom they belong. And it's not my place to ask. I just feel a certain duty to whomever to be a voice or to mediate a feeling that someone, somewhere has but has an inability to get out. I see how sometimes certain songs walk a fine line between beauty and sadness, because they are almost the same thing. The way you laugh at something and a knot catches your throat and you begin to tear up. Or how you begin to laugh without trying as you're hugging someone who is grieving and inexplicably, they start to laugh too. The moment when the line between beauty and sadness is blurred, is one of the few times when a person is truly alive..

Goddess was formed in a little yellow house with no heat in the winter of 2011.

Lyrics

On Breakups

It's an amazing thing to realize you're just a stream
And how joyous it is to cross streams with another stream
And how these two streams form a river,
A being of one thought
Streams always wander to a place where a river meets it,
That place is sacred, it is a kind place
It is a place of love and unity,
Because that space has witnessed the act of a stream joining the river
A river is but a gathering of many streams,
All going in the same direction, at the same time, with the same intent
That's why I can't be sad when my stream joins the river with another stream,
Only to realize the stream you met back in the river has left
Only to become a stream again
Looking for another river
It did not decide to leave,
It just went naturally to a different flow
But there is no reason to be sad
Because your river and their river will join again,
Into a more mighty river
And like all rivers flow,
They always end up in the Sea..

All Must Die

I'm here tonight, to tell you that you're going to die
And you may want to know that its this evening
All I can say's that you're going away
So say all your goodbyes, 'cause you'll be leaving

Don't sit and stare, if I were you I'd say a prayer
I don't think that we should keep them waiting
The day's been the same, since before you had a name
There's nothing left to change, no debating

I'm here tonight to tell you that you're going to die
And you may want to know that its this evening
All I can say's that you're going away
So say all your goodbye, 'cause you'll be leaving

All must die
All must die

A Life Ain't A Life

A life ain't a life, without another life in your life
We all need someone to wait by the window
A life ain't a life, without another life in your life
And we all need someone to wait by the window

I never go to the park
I don't get up til its dark
I buy the things on the t.v. shows
But I know, still I know..

A life ain't a life, without another life in your life
We all need someone to wait by the window
A life ain't a life, without another life in your life
And we all need someone to wait by the window

When I don't know what to do
I stare the whole night through
I need a lover to hold
Because it's what I was told

A life ain't a life, without another life in your life
We all need someone to wait by the window
A life ain't a life, without another life in your life
And we all need someone to wait by the window

It's Happening To Us

How can this be?
That you say you have to leave
I can't believe it's happening to us
And now you say
You never loved me anyway
I can't believe it's happening to us

Where's the girl
That I used to know
The one who made the angels in the snow
The one who cried, when her goldfish died
It doesn't seem that very long ago

You want to fuss
You have to catch a bus
I can't believe it's happening to us
And now you say
You never loved me anyway
I can't believe it's happening to us

You used to say
Forever we would stay
All of forever and a day
I was the one, your only rising sun
And everyday with me's a holiday

Your mind is made
There's nothing to discuss
I can't believe its happening to us
How can you say
You never loved me anyway
I can't believe its happening to us

Midnight

You know how I love you
I would walk with you, to the sea
And just like a brilliant star
I see you, but you're out of reach
I long to hold you
Tell you secrets that I've never told
A candle flickers
And I feel a fast, approaching cold

And when the midnight comes
Where will you be?
I have a sinking feeling
It's you I might never see again

I just want to kiss you
To feel the softness of your lips
To taste the sweetness
Of sweat that falls like forest mist
To hide in your body
A place of refuge from the storm
A candle flickers
But I have no place to go that's warm

And when the midnight comes
Where will you be?
I have a sinking feeling
It's you I might never see again

Every Star, Diana

Every star, Diana
Is another someone's sun
I warned you
About the things that surely must come
Every Star, Diana
Is another someone's sun
I told you
Nothing's really ever, truly done
Ever truly done

And every breeze, Diana
Is another's dying breath
I warned you
It wasn't just a lucky guess
And every thought, Diana
Is another's memory
I told you
Nothing's really how it used to be
How it used to be

And every night, Diana
You grab your cigarettes
I warned you
Of dancing at the discotheque
And someday soon, Diana
You'll place your final bet
I told you
I guess you really haven't heard me yet
You haven't heard me yet

T-Shirt

I don't want to hear your voice
Unless you say you need me
Because, I still need you
Ever since I saw you
Dancing with another
What's left of my heart, broke in two
And I don't want to ruin
What's left of your evening
But I swore to myself
I'd tell you
That I still have your t-shirt
I found it in my laundry
It has a certain fragrance,
That's you
And I could never wash it
I never had the courage
I'd put it out of sight
Out of view
I think I'm going to keep it
I'm now it's rightful owner
And I'm asking you now
What will you do?

I Wanted You For So Long

I wanted you for so long
I wanted you for so long
And I heard its true
Two hearts can't make a wrong

Souls
Bound by a silver cord
Love
The ever open door
And I need you
Until my breath is through
Until my breath is through

I used to watch you from a distance
And then we almost had a child
Two hearts connected for an instant
Two souls together for a while

I wanted you for so long
I wanted you for so long
I miss you
Your love made me strong
Your love made me...
