I recorded this song i wrote with my friend Justin Alper in one take! I wanted to keep it simple with just a few instruments and i enjoyed that aspect of it being a rough copy. Anyways, I thought i would share a different side other than my usual goofy self! Hope you enjoyed it!


Ever Since you left me there
With cloudy skies and cold wet hair
I swear the world has ceased to spin
I’ll never get you back again

As tears came rolling down my face
You left my world without a trace
The only thing that’s left with me are
Memories of you

And now
My world is crashing down
And all I see are
Memories that used to be
The remnants of our history
And now you
Will never understand
How love like that could build you up then tear you down
And leave you in your tears to drown
