about

The songs from The Autumn Waltz initially took flight in November of 2011 with Drums being snapped, crackled and popped by Damon Richardson (Change Of Heart/AVH). A few months later I then acquired the recording assistance of Jason Ball (Hopeful Monster) to which we spent a day recording Acoustic Guitars.

Soon after I finished off the E.P with Daniel Dell at the recording helm. Together with Jim Castillo on Guitars, Shota Nakamura on Bass/Keys & Jen Hickey on Harmony Vox (Into Tomorrow & Lost In Your Reflection) we finished off the E.P in October of 2012.

Lost In Your Reflection was produced by Kent Eliuk (Autobodies) & Scott Bouwmeester (Wilderness Of Manitoba) during the Summer of 2011. Album artwork by R. Mirsky robbmirsky.com

The E.P is a mere $5 in it's entirety or PWYC for individual tracks. All donations will be used for recording of my new album due sometime in the Summer 2013.

Dedicated to Shea Auburn, Norah Leigh & Tyler Clark.

Track Name: Ballad Of A Winter Hymn
Listened to the words you'd say
That painted sadness in these eyes.
Heard them once all before
Never needed to reply.

Spoke of love so afraid
To nestle into a warm embrace.
Struggled toward our own charade
Looking for a quick escape.

There we stood surrounded by feathers
The beat of our hearts let go to new weather.
Carried security only to far
Left w/ the past and made a new start.

Stumbled toward each others lies
Knowing the wrongs won't make it right.
Eyes sharpen to end the fight
Soon forget you, if just overnight.

All too soon 3 words at noon
Broke a heart and carried a tune.
What we said and what we did
Is now in the Ballad Of A Winter Hymn.
Track Name: Whispered Words
Focused on the breath i'd take
To the words that just might make
The distance too long to break
All the words covered in hate.

Took the time to heal the thorns
From the darkness, from the storm
Melancholy was still born
To the thoughts once adored.

The Words you'd sung have just begun
To sink into my memory.

Gave a promise all too soon
That i would be the one to ruin
An eloquence thought was true
Words spoken in the shade of blue.

Memories tied up in knots
Wishin' that i'd once forgot
The chance of love you could have brought
In my heart and not apart.

The Words you'd sung have just begun
To sink into my memory.
All the while as if in a dream
Whispered Words of hidden speak.

Should've known there wasn't a way
To mend the past and seize the day
Pardon hearts and start anew
Hope the past will bid adieu.

Looking back is careless and scarred
This bitterness has gone too far
My mistakes we're never on par
To the hurt you said was hard.
Track Name: Into Tomorrow
Saved lies to sever the ties
They'll all hold me back.
No denies from this attempted demise
Your gaze drifted back.

Small reach for eternal sunshine
Attempted one forlorn night.
Cold vibes hurt the back of my eyes
Will warm to surprise.

A romance it looms, in the cobwebs of my heart
We'll walk Into Tomorrow as legends in art.

We laid out on the beach
Where the stars would envy her.
She seemed so out of reach
Her touch would bring me back to earth.

I was helpless in the dark
Fingers looking for the door.
A tiny twilight silver shone.

A romance it looms, in the cobwebs of my heart
We'll walk Into Tomorrow as legends in art.
Track Name: No Connection
Tangled in words scrawled in dense verse
Caught in a shadow of a loveless curse.
Tried to move forward but caught in reverse
Never forgive the times that we're hurt.

Embers of love sickly and sweet
Words like a hurricane never discreet.
Caught in a web of wicked deceit.
Grasping at words we tried to appease.

Can i make one suggestion
To give you perception
We have No Connection
So get used to rejection.

Deliver your tired insights w/ zeal
Hoping the world will feel how you feel.
Believing you always get the wrong deal
Who cares you have no appeal.

Gentle wisdoms yet to be sworn
Kindly misgivings left to be torn.
New beginnings never to be born
All the hurt on our sleeves we had worn.

Can i make one suggestion
To give you perception
We have No Connection
So get used to rejection
Track Name: The Autumn Waltz
Stubborn sins this cowardice hides
Veiled in a humorless disguise.
Tired wisdoms in these dark eyes.

Settled into this blue abyss
Left w/ the taste of one soft kiss.
Your forlorn embrace is now his.

Eyes mingle of iron and gold
So detached to behold.
Dare the truths you once had told.

Times we lived in black and white
Thunder crackles in the long night.
Calm to the storm nowhere in sight.

The Autumn Waltz we once had danced
Left us in a breathless trance.
Grey skies glow to romance
Leaving time in fates hands.

In the wake of impending disaster
Are you still devoted to rapture.
Always willing to surrender.

The Autumn Waltz we once had danced
Left us in a breathless trance.
Grey skies glow to romance
Leaving time in fates hands.
Track Name: Lost In Your Reflection
"Tried to be wise and in love without blame.
Negativity grew and w/ it the games.
Stuck w/ these answers i needed to move.
Dawn ignited a passionate swoon.

I look into your eyes, then you turn away.

I laid in the sunken, sullen fresh snow.
Decembers first wish is that you would go.
You asked for a solace, i did not obey.
Weak in the heart, as my knees gave away.

I look into your eyes, then you turn away.

Lost in your reflection i needed more time.
The love i thought was yours, i knew it wasn't mine."
