This is the first song I ever finished. I decided to release this old recording because I don't think I can capture my emotions on this matter any better than this, when the inspiration for this song was at it's freshest, so sorry for the poor quality when I blow out the mic near the end.


i have lost a certain place
it completely slipped away
a place beyond the stars
that wasn't very far
for me

i would sit there in the night
and it would fill my soul with light
it wiped away my tears
and took away my fears
and my pain

now i simply have no where to go
no where to free my anger pain and sorrow
i need that place to find my hidden joy
where once upon i had my own true voice

blindly seeking the unknown
kept me farther from my own
that sound deep in my soul
that light that once had kept me whole

somedays all are fine
but constant doubting of what surrounds
loses me in time
i know what's in my heart
but i've lost myself which leaves me in the dark
but after all this pain
i'm finding now this place that got away

right now right here this is my place
always there in so many beautiful ways
where all the weight's set free
and all that is left is me
