just take a listen! :)

Story Behind the Song

what's a little odd (though becoming not so odd with me these days) is it took me several years to finally finish this song. i kept attempting several different angles and eventually landed on the lyrics i was trying to find all along. i'm pleased with how the song came together and that's a difficult thing for me to say--because so often i feel like i could have written the song just a little better or i have this nagging feeling that had i only dug a little deeper i might have found better word choices that could have articulated my thoughts in a way that could have taken the song to the next level--and sometimes, i can even let myself feel like i've somehow let the song down. glad to say that on this particular song, i feel like i achieved what i was shooting for.

Lyrics

WHERE THE ROADS CROSS

i want to crawl under the ground
find a shovel and dig deep down
i want to wait so still and quiet
till you come and find me
so, i'm scared spitless
i'm not as brave as i once was
so i'm here shaking
runny, messy, pretty pathetic

CHORUS
can you hear me from where you are?
will you meet me where the roads cross?
i am almost desperate
broken in spirit
i am almost admitting
i've never felt so lost
where the roads cross
where the roads cross

i guess i'm disenchanted
with what i've left and forsaken
truth is, i have no other place to go
i'm a nomad in the making
scabs on my knees from crawling
callouses on the soles of my feet
all the mileage it's taken me to learn
how to be weak, how to be needy

(CHORUS)

BRIDGE
will you reassure me
that you're closing the distance?
'cause sometimes it feels like
there's a universe between us
where the roads cross
where the roads cross
