about

Trails is inspired by heartache, depression and the path towards rehabilitating the mind, as well as a deep bond and connection for psychedelic music from the 60s and 70s. “I listened to a lot of John Lennon during a hard time in my life and was inspired by the vulnerability and honesty in his lyrics. I had never written about my emotions before but listening to Lennon eased the fear of opening up and exposing myself.”

Although Trails is inspired by heartbreak and the deep depression that follows, its central theme is more about recovery and mindfulness. The lyrics throughout the record encourage the listener to become aware of the thoughts and mental grooves worn into their mind...like steps on a trail. Through this awareness is the path to recovery.

Track Name: I'd Like to Go Away From Here Again With You
I’d like to go
Away from here
Again
With you

Take me away
Farther in space
Open myself for the ride

Turning back time
To watch it rewind
Won’t help you in the end

Circling around the cast iron clown
To help you begin again

Watching them fly
Turning the sky
No one around
Don’t look back down
Wait for the dawn
Wait for the dawn of day to come

Nobody's home
Where will you go
Hiding in sight
No use to fight
It’s gone
Gone
Gone

No one can know
Where you must go
To find your
peace at home

Touching the world
Burning your soul
Don’t wait for the answers to come

Come on let it go
It’s only for show
Fight them in your sleep

Don’t right all your wrongs
Leave them in space
Don’t let them eat you again

Watching them fly
Turning the sky
No one around
Don’t look back down
Wait for the dawn
Wait for the dawn of day to come

Nobody's home
Where will you go
Hiding in sight
No use to flight
It’s gone
Gone
Gone
