Vocals, classical guitar and strings combine to create a contemporary chamber pop sound. Lush and delicate.

There are times when you might choose to simply close your eyes, and get lost in a kiss, rather than face the painful truth that the person you are in love with is unable to fulfill the dreams you both share.


Think of me, your one and only
Here I lie, alone …so lonely
Bedtime stories, told the way
But when I wake… just another day

From up close, from every angle
Toes and tongues, tease and tangle
Step away, leave your toy behind
One final word, left unrhymed

Oh that we could be
In some other time or place
Living all that we planned
No one to care or need to understand

Yet here we are, so near, too far
And that feels so much to me like nowhere
No, don’t go there
Kissing lips tell no lies
