about

i drove from beaufort, south carolina to portland, oregon with a couple friends in january/february 2015 + lived there for ~ 8 months before figuring out i needed to go back east. the trip there was beautiful and important, living there was cool and weird and hard and important, and leaving was harder than i thought it'd be and, you guessed it, important.

these are a few songs i wrote to process all my pdx feelings.
xoxo gg

Track Name: We Came What We Got For
carolina sends us off with the sunrise
new orleans is hot and kind and full of flowers
it takes three days for us to drive thru texas
somehow we laugh our way thru el paso
i punch myself in the face in vegas
a little blood, a lot of pain for hours

ain’t it good aint it grand
to be by yr side
aint it good aint it grand
just to know you

death valley dunes all high and dry
big sur in the rain is a vision
oh frisco in february
the whole damn state of california’s almost too dreamy
but i’d go back in a heartbeat

singin ain’t it good aint it grand
to be by yr side
ain’t it good ain’t it grand
just to know you

ain’t it good aint it grand
to be by yr side
ain’t it good ain’t it grand
just to know you

oregon state line - we made it
soon we’ll be sittin real pretty
in a house just us three alone
i won’t mind bein too far from maine or carolina
we’ll get exactly what we came here for

ain’t it good aint it grand
to be by yr side
ain’t it good ain’t it grand
just to know you
Track Name: 818 SE 47th Ave
we spend a lot of time
at the kitchen table
or laying on the lawn
staring at the neighbors

we might feel things too much
i don’t think i mind
cause the grass is too green
and our lives feel so wide

i’m takin off my shoes
i’m closin my eyes
i’m takin off my shoes
i’m stayin for a while

we drink too much wine
get drunk and laugh it off
dance around the room
feel like nothing could break us

i’m takin off my shoes
i’m closin my eyes
i’m takin off my shoes
i’m stayin for a while

i’m takin off my shoes
i’m hangin around
i’m takin off my shoes
i’m settlin down

i'm takin off my shoes
i'm closin my eyes
i'm takin off my shoes
i'm stayin for a while

we spend a lot of time
at the kitchen table
Track Name: Dear PDX: I love you, but I don't love you
hefty ticket fines and rain almost every day
i've been living in an orange cave
the mornings here are just a cloud
today i swear i'm getting out of town

get out of bed
pack a bag
or just bring yrself
move yr body,
hand in mine
we're driving to the coast

we lie on floors with buzzing heads and heavy hearts
dream abt west virginia, a brand new fucking start
it's not new but i think i've found what keeps my body mine
being in a car and always crossing state lines

so
get out of bed
pack a bag
or just bring yrself
move yr body,
hand in mine
we’re driving to the coast

near the end there it was pretty hard to leave the house
too much rain too many people that i didn't care about
we all found pockets to hide ourselves in
and i know even if we're spread out, we'll find each other again

get out of bed
meet me back east
or along the way
move yr body,
hand in mine
we'll make our very own place

get out bed
meet me downstairs
we've got a lot to do
move yr body,
hand in mine
our dreams are comin true
Track Name: See You
sitting in my room all my things around me
all my things around but you
i'm packin up my life for the 3rd or 4th time this year
but i can't really see straight

thoughts of waterfalls we drove to, cold water on our heads
dancing and whooping thru the night
let’s keep on making plans til our bodies burst wide open
from all the maybes and can’t waits

take me to the redwoods one last time
we know this is hard, but we also know it's right

so
take me through the gorge one last time
we know this is hard, but we also know it’s right
take me to the pacific one last time
it’s been one hell of a year, see you on the other side

it’s been one hell of a year see you on the other side
Track Name: Uncurling
can’t i find a way
to get out of this bed
i’ve been here all day
i might as well be dead

it always starts this way with me
just a simple little slide into the dark
gimme one more minute
i swear i’ll call you back
come over once this coffee’s done it’s job

can't i find a way
to get out of this bed
i've been here all day
i might as well be dead

do you know what i mean
when i say i wanna feel surrounded
cause everyone’s away
and that’s including me
we’re spread so thin you can almost see thru us
and all i wanna do

is find my own way
out of this old bed
cause i’ve been here to long
and it’s messing with my head

i’ve curled inside myself
and i think it’s been long enough
it’s time for me to step
out into the sun
i’m ready for a yellow summer

and to finally find a way
out of all these beds
i’ve been stuck in for so long
now i’ve risen from the dead

i've risen from the dead
