about

100% of sales will be donated to www.sweetrelief.org in support of the countless musicians who's lives have been terribly disrupted by this virus. Exclusively available on Bandcamp for the next month to raise money, then available on other platforms.

Written and recorded in my apartment during Covid-19 isolation.
I had been reflecting a lot on choices I've made, being alone and most importantly the people I love who have supported me through the years.

lyrics

Mostly I’ve been doing fine
Keeping all my plants alive
Reading books and cutting back on booze
I guess it takes a quarantine
To educate a philistine
On what he’s got
And what he’s got to lose

I’ll see you on the other side of this my friend
I’ll help you get your boots
back on the ground
I’ll see you on the other side of this my friend
And if you need me I will always be around

Mostly I’m ok alone
A solitary chaperone
Today I wore a tie to make my tea
I guess it takes some time away
To calculate the hell I’ll pay
For living in an unforgiving dream

I’ll see you on the other side of this my friend
I’ll help you get your boots
back on the ground
I’ll see you on the other side of this my friend
And if you need me I will always be around

When I was at the bottom of my well
And the rope just wasn’t
long enough to reach
You offered me some slack
and baby now I’ve got your back
I’m learning how to practice what I preach

I’ll see you on the other side of this my friend
I’ll help you get your
boots back on the ground
I’ll see you on the other side of this my friend
And if you need me I will always be around
I’ll be there on the other side of this my friend
I’ll hug you and you’ll tell me what you’ve seen
I’ll be there on the other side of this my friend
Sincerely yours
With love, from quarantine
