About time? Listen to a couple songs.

Raw recordings of Kiss the Rain and Fragile Fingers are now on my purevolume.

In the Moment My Heart Beats

I’ve been looking for inspiration
Wandering eyes, never ending
You seem perfect for the source
Mystery, your eyes, endless
Don’t move, don’t even blink
As I paint the way you’re stirring me

If it is really you, I could write all day
Even though I’m speechless, because you take my breath away
But even if my pen spills but just one word over and again
That word is beautiful, spelled with letters from your name

I’ve been feeling a little lost for words
But you walked past, gave them back
And I have decided that you are slow motion
I have to swallow and then think in order to breathe
As you smile, my mouth drops, unhinged jaw
Your eyes meet mine and every nerve comes alive
I have never felt the air like this
Conscious of all things, yet sensing only you

-Zach

Fragile Fingers

Fragile fingers, cute little shoes
Fade with time, it may be a shame
What innocence, what sweetness
What had you held within those fragile fingers
What dreams held you under pigtails and behind such a cute little face

Don’t let them go, little girl
You are a princess, royalty
You are fragile still, my dear
Never lose innocence that you will regret forgetting

To see you, little girl, losing innocence
Will break me more than you will ever know
What had you held within those fragile fingers that you have let go?

Glistening Silhouette (In Opposite Boats)

Sunrise, across from the moon
Bleeding red into the sky, straight from the night
Fighting the cool blue of the sea, glistening reflections in my eyes
We dazzle its sight, staring back at each of us, in opposite boats

I have not blinked since dusk, and I don’t expect to again soon
As the water echoes your silhouette
Red as the sun, majestic as the moon
And your boat reaches forward, I will see you now, human glory
The plot is ours to redefine
If we just reach across the water, join one another
And float together as one
The horizon begs us be not alone in vast empty
But clutch so tight as onto life, we’ll leak our dreams and all desire
Fighting the cool blue of the sea, glistening reflections of your silhouette to me
It could knock me down, but I am frozen still
Floating upon a frictionless ocean
Gravity! The earth is moving below you, you’ll never be beneath
Anything! Your eyes are the pearls that men kill to reach

Sunrise, across from the moon
Wearing thin, my chance to move
Straight from the night comes your eyes
Glistening as the ocean
We dazzle its sight, staring back in opposite boats
And I still haven’t blinked, no I still cannot blink

-Zach

Song Covers

I was playing some songs today. Then the snuck onto my purevolume.

One snuck onto youtube. If you can find it.

My Plans I Will Not Fail

As of today, I have decided
And my plans I will not fail

If you hurt her a little
I’ll hurt you a lot

-Zach

Your Ghost

I am not alone tonight
The voices in my head are here
And your ghost is at my side

Everybody run! Everybody run away!
Keep your heart alive! Don’t let it turn to gray!
Don’t let the red turn gray

When my handwriting changes throughout the page
I am lost in your ghastly eyes
Because your ghost is at my side

-Zach
