about

After a shamefully long period of not writing songs, this album was written (in it's entirety) the night of Monday, September 21st, 2015 until about 4am. It was recorded on Tuesday, mixed on Wednesday, and overthought/listened to far too many times on Thursday. On Friday night, the album was released!

"I Will Always Be Here; You Won't Feel Alone Again" is a collection of songs about learning to be okay with yourself, by yourself, but knowing that it's still worth sharing your happiness with others.

Thank you so much for listening,

Justin

Track Name: I
I am not tired
I am not scared
I am a lion
I am prepared

waiting for someone
isn't my thing
not anymore
with the trouble it brings

I am the hope in my heart
I am the light in my own dark
nobody else holds the key
nobody else, nobody but me

the words that spin inside my head are like factions maintaining traction ahead
slowly advancing, at every chance dancing around my actions in hopeful defence
and every time I let them in things seem to look down and get darker again
so I and I alone will pull the strings and ignite the flames that get rid of them

I am the hope in my heart
I am the light in my own dark
nobody else holds the key
nobody else, nobody but me

I am okay on my own
I am alive when I am alone
nobody else holds the key
nobody else, nobody but me

the words that spin inside my head are like factions maintaining traction ahead
slowly advancing, at every chance dancing around my thoughts
in hopeful defence
Track Name: Will
something tells me
you're at home
listening softly
through the phone

it's your voice on
the other end
tell them quickly
make amends

(all the while, all the while)
I've been seeing double through my lens
(all the while, all the while)
I've been wondering, when will life begin

think about the time you spend
taking care of all your friends
now relate it to yourself
there's a difference can't you tell

(all the while, all the while)
I've been seeing double through my lens
(all the while, all the while)
I've been wondering, when will life begin

(all the while, all the while)
you've ignored yourself, you can't pretend
(all the while, all the while)
try to love yourself, my friend
Track Name: Always
when I finally found my always
yeah I knew
then I found them again
well that makes two

the always and forevers
don't always end up together
but it's really not that sad

cause there'll always be another
and you'll always love each other
and there's nothing wrong with that
Track Name: Be
I take who I want to be seriously
and I'm not one to make careless choices, not me
I know it's okay to keep making mistakes
but I'm sick and I'm tired of pumping the brakes
I overthink overthinking when I wake
till the end of the day when my mind overtakes

it's hard to keep fighting when you know you can't win
when the best you can do's to not let the snakes in
our brains can be great but like hell they'll be cruel
when the floodgates come open and you lose your cool
no matter who you want to be it's okay
cause there's someone else out there who knows what to say

they'd say

take a step back
you'll be alright
everything's fine at the end of the night
you will be strong
you will get through
you're doing your best and that's all you can do
Track Name: Here
who would've thought I'd meet you here at all
I'm staring down the barrel of your gun
it's pretty clear that you and I could be each other's one
who would've thought I'd meet you here at all

take your bag of tricks and leave them at the door
cause I don't play games anymore
I've learned my lesson once or twice but I'm not sure
if I'm feeling that the third time's right
every little thing that I'm thinking might push me
over the edge, but that's alright

who would've though I'd meet you here tonight

you put me on a pedestal so high
I know that this is quite cliché, but that's okay, I think we'll be alright
now I'm not saying that I heard the voices calling out their wedding song
but if we keep it up like this my dear it won't be long

take your bag of tricks and leave them at the door
cause I don't play games anymore
I've learned my lesson once or twice but I'm not sure
if I'm feeling that the third time's right
every little thing that I'm thinking might push me
over the edge, but that's alright

who would've though I'd meet you here tonight
Track Name: You
you were not made from the water
you were not born of the sea
you cannot bend like the waves flowing over
you are not lost without me

you are but somebody's daughter
carefully treading the leaves
you are but somebody's son who forgot her
waiting for love patiently

none of it means anything
cause everyone getting it the same
but they hide it like you
there are many things that we are not
but none of them take away from you

you were not made of perfection
but damn near do you cut it close
if ever you lose your direction
trust me that you know the most

none of it means anything
cause everyone getting it the same
but they hide it like you
there are many things that we are not
but none of them take away from you
Track Name: Won't
oh my hardships, honey, hardly compare
to the ones you're running from inside your head
and I don't know nothin' about what they've said

but when the stars come knocking you know
the dark won't be there

we've all got galaxies deep in our souls
tangled up in fantasies and stories we've told
in our dreams we're anything and everything bold

but when the world comes knocking make sure
your dreams don't grow old

if I knew you better I'd probably say
that despite the weather, you've done pretty great
I'm around the corner on any day

that you need someone knocking to show that
you'll be okay
Track Name: Feel
I can't get you off my mind
(here we go again)
I can't get you off my mind
(yeah you're burning in)
and I'm not sure if I'll survive
(this might be the end of me)
I can't get you off my mind

cause when your love catches fire
yeah you make me feel alive

I just can't keep track of time
(*clock-like mouth noises*)
I just can't keep track of time
(seconds turn to minutes turn to hours)
and you just watch as I decline
(bet you're loving this)
I just can't keep track of time

cause when your love catches fire
yeah you make me feel alive

you've seen it all
you've walked these streets
but I'm not sure
that you can see
what's sitting here
in front of me

every little piece of you is picture perfect
and you make me feel alive

I can't get you off my mind
(here we go again)
I can't get you off my mind
(yeah you're burning in)
and I'm not sure if I'll survive
(this might be the end of me)
I can't get you off my mind

cause when your love catches fire
yeah you make me feel alive

you've seen it all
you've walked these streets
but I'm not sure
that you can see
what's sitting here
in front of me

every little piece of you is picture perfect
and you make me feel like...

you've seen it all
you've walked these streets
but I'm not sure
that you can see
what's sitting here
in front of me

every little piece of you is picture perfect
and you make me feel alive
Track Name: Alone
kids I knew when I was young
all grew up and they moved on
they got lives and they got jobs
they're not writing stupid songs

I was supposed to be someone
but I don't know if I'm on
the right path to what I want
why does it have to take so long

I just want to make it right
please just let me make it right

I will always be here
you won't feel alone again
I'm not quite friend of the year
but if you could pretend I am

heaven was never enough for the kiddie who always wanted the shittiest treat in the bunch cause he thought his friends would think he thought a little much of himself and wouldn't take second best, but for him, that was better than the rest

and if I knew that it was fine
to be yourself and take your time
I'd probably do it all the same
just be prouder of my name

I just want to make it right
please just let me make it right

I will always be here
you won't feel alone again
I'm not quite friend of the year
but if you could pretend I am

kids I knew when I was young
they're not writing stupid songs
Track Name: Again
we will meet again
beyond the fading light
you, me, and all our friends
we'll have won the fight
