We Were Here

It’s been a long couple of weeks. I just turned 24 and recent experience has made me painfully aware of the fact that time slows for no man. I’ve always felt it was so important to remember where you’ve been…

We Were Here 20190915

Where you’ve come from. I am extremely grateful to be able to say that my journey so far has come with some exceptional people, and memories. But also with those that you wish could be altered or changed. But in each moment, good or bad, I existed. Good or bad, they happened, and they have made me who I am today. These beautiful people that I’ve been fortunate enough to write music with have helped me to see just how much music can capture those moments, bottle them, sterilize them, keep them fresh. So that if ever you wish to relive them, they will be there, waiting for you. Every inside joke, every love realized and lost and every howl at the moon for help… they’ll be there.

So the short of it is, I think it’s very important to remember exactly where you’ve been… and so I wrote a song about it.

We Were Here

In the west a setting sun
the east to come undone
I the Sentimental son
Honey you the only one

This the piece you lost at sea
I the paddle down the creek 
Spoken word spoke unto thee
Fallacy, Calloused he, Takes your sleep 

This as right
As I'll ever be 

So this your something for the road
This your footprint in the snow
Journey long
Surely gone away

This your cloudy for the clear
Every word is you dear
For when time is high 
to say goodbye 
to leave behind
That we were here 

Love Always
-Him

One thought on “We Were Here

  1. You know those moments when you’re driving through the trees on a nice day, or down a country road with the sun setting, and your windows are down? You’re just appreciating life and reflecting on the things that got you to where you are. And in that moment everything is right and you’re perfectly content. And there is a sentimental song playing that’s just right for that moment. That’s this song.
