Do you want me to entertain you Or do you want me to be your friend What do you care if I disappoint you Why do you fear how this will end End Do you see me in your reflection Do you see me I am the spark What do you see in your imperfections What do you see besides the dark Dark What do you see Do you see me now? ...

Time is a lie, you see But what if time is all that you can see Is it time for me to believe That there's a time for you and me to be Time makes us long for the days when we had time to just give it all away We fell in love at the age of 17 It wasn't perfect but it wasn't a dream It wasn't a dream We fell in love at the edge of everything I couldn't believe that it wasn't a dream But it wasn't a dream No it wasn't a dream It's time for me to let you know that it's time for me to let you go

I still remember those words she said That all our lives are songs Where'd you learn that I asked She said she'd known it all along Yeah I remember those words she said That with love there is no wrong How can you be so sure I asked She said she'd heard it in a song We can never look back, she said Oh come what may Love could've been our answer, I said We just got in the way Oh sing with me now! As I finish my song We can drink it down like wine Yeah we can get it all wrong Oh sing with me now! You can finish my song You can drink me down like wine With me you can do no wrong

He sits at his window with his memories and a drink Light dances across the floor just as she once did For just a second He can feel her He used to think he'd taken from her everything But god just look at her now He was only ever stealing from himself He lets himself wonder whether next year might be different But he knows better He asked the same thing last December And the December before that And the December before that And the December before that And the December before that And the December before that ...

I used to be everything to you In my mind I used to see everything in you But now I'm blind I used to take everything in stride You know I'm right I used to keep everything inside So hold on tight There are these moments in between us As we walk along these lines We've always been together here But still I miss you all the time So it goes So it goes I used to be nothing more than light Passing you by I used to see nothing more than time To make this right There are these moments in between us As we walk along these lines If we've always been together here Why do I miss you all the time? There are these moments in between us If we just walk along these lines We've always been together here We just can't make it through this time So it goes ...

They say, bloom where you're planted Stay where you're wanted It's easy I say, keep chasing the wild Be now and always a child It's easy Time goes by And we know where it leads You and I no we don't talk anymore But you still know me You still know me. You, you bloomed where you were planted I hope it's what you wanted I know it wasn't easy I, I kept chasing the wild I never had no child It's not easy.

When you say you almost never wonder How much can you know When you say you almost never wander How far can you go So I can't wait to begin No I can't wait to begin You know nothing lasts forever Follow me and I'll follow you back If it's love that you are after Just take my hand and never look back No you know nothing lasts forever Follow me and I'll follow you back If it's love that we are after Just take my hand and never look back Because I can't make it alone I can't make it alone I can't make it alone I can't make it alone.

about

Hello.

Thank you for listening to my first album under the name Possible Bird. I thought I’d attempt to explain a bit about why I have chosen that name as my musical identity.

To me, the name Possible Bird signifies two things, each of which I hope is embodied in my music. First, and perhaps most obviously, is the notion of taking flight as a metaphor for freedom, for seeking out new experiences, or for enlightenment.

My first favorite band was INXS. They have a line in one of their songs that has always stuck with me. It goes like this: “I told you that we could fly, because we all have wings, but some of us don't know why.” This gets at the notion of contingency. We all have the capacity to fly—to soar—but it requires both our realization of that fact and the choice to leave the ground. Hence, the possible in Possible Bird. I have a similar line in one of my first songs I wrote, a song called You Don’t Cry. In that song, I plead with the listener (really, myself) that “you know you're not too old to fly.” With those words, I was trying to describe the phenomenon of how people tend to lose their sense of wonder, their sense of all that is possible, as they get older.

This gets at the other thing the name Possible Bird represents. It has to do with mortality, and how the salience of death influences our sense of self and our understandings of the world. One facet of this is our tendency to expect, if not demand, a savior—be it a deity, a demagogue, or even a superhero. There’s that famous line from the Superman saga: “Up in the sky, look! It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Superman!” Well, it is possible it’s just a bird. And that’s okay.

Again, thanks for listening. I hope there is something here for you.

Take good care.
