about

The last track on the album is the beginning of a new story. The song is about how moving on and finding someone new is hard when you still are carrying baggage from someone else. Despite that fact I wanted this song to portray a sad hope. Sad because there are still some demons, but hope because there is resolve to move on.

lyrics

She's a gun-toting songstress with a body like a psalm. She holds my salvation like dust in her palm. I'm a street-smart Adonis, at least in my mind. I'm lost but I'm not blind.

Her smile cuts through the crowd like a knife in my veins. I sift through the smoke, make my way past the stage. This booze-soaked saloon numbs my jaded cold rage, abated by her gaze.

And I'll keep dreaming, my heart still bleeding, my past won't fade away.

Because I'm still alone and confused, I left my confidence torn and abused in a tomb, on 35th Street and Grand that haunts me but won't catch me looking back.

I'm met with artful indifference as she crosses the room. My questions and fears have begun to consume. I know she'll never see the man that I'll someday be, just this one full of grief.

And I'll keep dreaming, my heart still bleeding, my past won't fade away.

Because I'm still alone and confused, I left my confidence torn and abused in a tomb, on 35th Street and Grand that haunts me but won't catch me looking back.

Because I'm still alone and confused, I left my confidence torn and abused in a tomb, on 35th Street and Grand that haunts me but won't catch me

Because I'm still alone and confused, I left my confidence torn and abused in a tomb, on 35th Street and Grand that haunts me but won't catch me looking back.
