about

The temporary nature of all things can be a hard factor to accept in a life which feels so infinite. Make the most of it.

lyrics

I wish my cats wouldn't fight
I wish my cats wouldn't fight
They make so much noise
I can't sleep at night
I wish my cats wouldn't fight.

Last night I dreamt I was writing this song
When I awoke the dream was gone
I sit here and I close my eyes to light of the morning sun
And in my mind I try to hold on

And I see so much beauty in my dreams
When I wake they sit just out of reach
And hide behind my thoughts
only waking when I sleep

And when the morning comes they're gone
With the rising of the morning sun
I wake to find they're gone

Music is a universe
The universe in me
Infinite and extravert
But, introspectively,
I walk around these busy rooms
Which occupy my head
And marvel at the thought that they
Will all be empty when I'm dead

And yours will too
And so will you
And there's nothing anyone can do
So you can spend your life asleep
Or fill your head with memories
Just remember that
The memory of everything you see
And everything you know
It all goes with you when you go

Dont let it get you down
Maybe you will make a noise so loud
that eternity can't dull the sound
And there'll always be a part of you around
Or maybe that's a lie
Something I just said to make you smile
But your smiling face and the rest of you
Well, they are temporary too.
Come on, don't cry
let's hug each other dry
After all, it's not just you.
Everybody else dies too.

And you see so much beauty in your dreams
When you awake they flit just out of reach
And lie beneath your thoughts
Only waking when you sleep

I wish my cats wouldn't fight
I wish my cats wouldn't fight
They make so much noise I can's sleep at night
I wish my cats wouldn't fight

Following a bilateral lung transplant in 2010, I started making loads of noise. The only way you will be able to find out what I do is to listen to my songs. You might even like it. My mum does.
