about

Some of the imagery for “Your Well” was inspired by reading Haruki Murakami’s novel “The Wind Up Bird Chronicle”. I like the idea of a well as a source of life, but also as a potential trap. This track got closest to my fantasy of making songs that have the melancholy beauty of Phil Elverum’s music. I’m still mystified by his writing and production.

lyrics

I saw my reflection on the surface of the water of your well. And boy did I look happy, and you called me, I belonged there, I could tell. So I waded in your water, warm spring water.

With a smile you swam beside me, you embraced me, turned you gaze up to the sky. And my skin was so thirsty, your warm body, and the sunlight in you eyes. And as our hearts beat stronger, we submerged slowly.

The joy of going under, refreshing water, your stone well wall held us near. But who were you really, what was down there, could I make my home here? We had to know the answers, so we swam deeper.

The water it grew colder, it grew darker as we traveled further down. And seven miles under we realized there was no turning around. The warmth of your body, there was no bottom. Your mystery is endless, I'll never know you.
