about

For Dara. Thank you for being patient and letting me know when I'm out of tune.

The first time I thought about the words "edges of light" I was in a car at night looking at blurry circles of light through a rain-spattered window. I thought about the fuzzy edges of light and how what I labelled an edge was really a continuum, stretching down into the imperceptible.

Where is the edge that separates light and darkness? Green and blue? Good and bad? Sometimes we look too closely and get lost in the blurriness, unable to make a judgment. Sometimes we don't look closely enough at our hard lines and judge too quickly.

I recorded most of this album in the fall and early winter of 2014, but half of the songs were started over the last 5 years (2009, 2011, 2012, and 2013) and revisited in 2014.

I'm incredibly proud to put this out there as a musical representation of myself. This music is me.

Thank you for listening. I really appreciate it. I hope you enjoy it.

Jeff

Track Name: All the Time
All the time,
All the time we'll never know now
Let's press rewind,
Press rewind and be alone now

And all the pain we've known
Yeah I'll be sleepless every night
And all the wars we've lost
We missed our chance to make it right

And all the time,
All the time we'll never know now
Let's press rewind,
Press rewind and be alone now

Bottle up the tears we shed
Take 'em out when I feel regret, even though...
Bottle up the tears we shed
Take 'em out when I feel regret, even though...
That might be every morning

All the time
All the time
All the time

All the time
All the time
All the time
Track Name: What Is?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?

Out of my way
Out of my way
Out of my way
Out of my way
Out of my way
Out of my way
Out of my way
Out of my way

Way...

What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?
What is the time of day?

Time of day...
Track Name: A Stranger's Regret
Can't settle on the matter
I need roots in today
Asleep, awash in chatter
I push it away

I will never let myself be
I will never let myself be

The fire's barely smouldering
Is the will still there?
I'm mired in this holding pattern
And beginning to get scared
It's braver to face this stranger's regret
'Cause tomorrow's just another day I'll forget

Can't settle on the matter
'Cause tomorrow's just another day I'll forget
Can't settle on the matter.
'Cause tomorrow's just another day I'll forget
Can't settle on the matter.
'Cause tomorrow's just another day I'll forget
Can't settle on the matter.
'Cause tomorrow's just another day I'll forget
Track Name: The River
The river rushes through me
It's cold and dark underneath
The river rushes through me
It's cold and dark underneath

And all I ever did...
And all I ever did...
And all I ever did...
And all I ever did...
And all I ever did...
And all I ever did...
And all I ever did...
And all I ever did...

Remember the time?
Remember the time?
Remember the time?
Do you remember the time?
Remember the time?
Remember the time?
Remember the time?
Do you remember the time?

The light
Light
The light

Track Name: My False Content
I've lost track of where I've been
I've lost track of where I'm going
In the embrace of my false content
I've been asleep without knowing

Oh will I ever wake up?
Oh will I ever wake up?
Oh will I ever wake up?
Oh will I ever wake up?

Will I ever wake up?
Oh will I ever wake up?
Will I ever wake up?
Oh will I ever wake up?
Track Name: In the Interest of the Truth
In the interest of the truth
I'm a mess and I don't know what to do
With respect to my despair
It's quiet, but kinda always there

In the interest of the new
I can't see it, I can't feel it
But I'm trying to push through
And I'm trying to repair
My broken thoughts and my ugly wants
'Cause I'm running out of years

The air, the air, the air
I wish I could stop and leave myself right here
The air, the air, the air
I wish I could stop and leave myself right here
The air, the air, the air
I wish I could stop and leave myself right here
