I say: “More to follow.”
And become my fan on facebook!

I’m sorry about the weird audio…my mic was acting up and I couldn’t bring myself to do another take. This will be the first song in hopefully soon coming demo album: “Count in Tens.”

And yes, I’m back. I’m not dead. Thank you all for sticking by me. I won’t disappoint.

Oh, also, 10 points to the person who can spot the difference in my room.

Chocolate Cake

Life moves at the speed
of the heart
which almost never goes along
the speed of a clock
but I’ve been learning the hard way
what it means
to leave a heart behind.
Tick tock
we ride on early morning trains
bound for early morning planes
and life is less than a blur.
And I’ve been thinking of you
thinking of me
thinking of everyone
who flies across the sea.

Who knows when we’ll meet again?
Baby you kissed me sadder
than a passing hurricane
with one last promise
to celebrate the end
baby you told me to smile.

But today
even chocolate cake
is starting to taste like last goodbyes
and
rainy eyes and airport skies
remind me
that you’re mine
but now
10 times the speed of life
we’re leaving or love behind.

Life moves at the speed
of my head
cuz my heat is just as empty and cold
as my bed
and here another day
another thousand ways to remember
that I’m on my own

and who knows when I’ll cry again?
Baby I kissed you
softer than a dying flame.
I’ve kept that promise
to celebrate the end
yeah
I’ve been smiling
as hard as I can.

But today
even chocolate cake
is starting to taste like last goodbyes
and
rainy eyes and airport skies
remind me
that you’re mine
but now
10 times the speed of life
we’re leaving or love behind.

take her place
chocolate cake
I swear I’m fine
cake chocolate

    Hey, Older Alex: This is something to be proud of. Younger you made something beautiful. I've listened to it countless times. I'm following your new band on Facebook now, your "more to follow", I suppose.. Thanks for making music for me.

    So when I was in high school I would listen to this song when I couldn't fall asleep. I would wake up and click rewind and fall asleep again. Loved your voice and the lyrics. 7 years later, I'm a medic in the army. And when I can't fall asleep this is the first song that popped into my head tonight. Out of nowhere. It's still just as good of a song as I remember. Hope you still play and write music. 🙂

    I have to say, that like the person below me, i came across this on accident. Usually I"ll stop listening after 5 seconds, but this time, I fell in love after 5 seconds. I hope you become a youtube star soon because you're voice makes me melt <3
