This track is my first officially released single, dedicated to my mother, who passed in April. In the years I've been alive, it's my first raw experience of grief in which I've been so deeply affected. I drew on all of my raw struggles when writing this, in an attempt to motivate myself and to remind myself that there's still so much beauty and happiness in the world. This is a deeply personal track, but hopefully people will find that they relate to the song in their own way.


Time begins to fade,
Changing, changing,
Sunlight turns to shade

Storm clouds congregate
Raging, raging
But do not be afraid

I see your ghost in front of me
Searching through every memory

Awake, but I should be sleeping
Afraid, even though I'm dreaming
Make your way, through the darkness
Stay, and face the silence

The world can feel a lonely place
Through darkest days, and strangest ways,
There's nothing that you cannot face alone

Take a step outside your door,
Feel the sunlight, walk the shore,
You'll find the light wherever you may go

I feel you walking next to me
And I know you'll always be beside me

Carry on, life won't wait for me
Be strong, through uncertainty
Alone, I will never be
So stay, and face the silence

Where are you now?

Awake, I'm no longer sleeping
Afraid, but I'm only dreaming
Don't walk away, even in the blindness
Just stay, and face the silence

Carry on, life won't wait for me
Be strong, through uncertainty
Alone, I will never be
So I'll stay, and face the silence

Let's stay and face the silence

I found a piano, found a harp, took my singing out of the shower, and picked up some other instruments along the way... and here we are. Welcome to my page and have a nice day!
