You don’t have to worry No, you don’t have to try ‘Cause you stand sturdy in my heart Even when you lie You don’t have to change You can feel so safe ‘Cause you are my sunshine Even in the rain My arms are open My heart is too Now what’s the deal With you bein true? Did someone tell you That if you fall They’ll never let you Beyond that wall Again Again Oh, my friend: Well you don’t have to worry No, you don’t have to care ‘Cause you can break down any wall And I’ll be there Anywhere Anywhere Anywhere

My 42 06:18
When I saw you had written me Paranormal contact on the phone I had to look twice Make sure it was my own ET phone home Feels like these days everybody hears my song except the one that matters And my own heart, which is hitching a ride drinking stardust as you glide through galaxies shattered But you...You could be my 42 The 0 and 1 I come back to So when you think you’ll come back through? The first time I saw you There were numbers on your face And a blue was emanating brightly From the 5 and 3 The next time I saw you They had left a tiny trace The algorithm felt within your lines You spewed across the stage Across the stage Oh and you, you could be my 42 The 0 and 1 I come back to So when you think you’ll come back through? Come back through, yeah you, You could be my 42, The 0 and 1 I come back to So when you think you'll come back through, come back through my skies my skies Feels like I’ve got nothin to say And nothin to create If I can’t lay before you at your feet look what I did hey hey I guess you figured it out You’ll be levitating soon From the sea of fear and doubt, like a finally freed balloon Freed balloon There you go, there you go and you, you could be my 42 The 0 and 1 I come back to So when you think you’ll come back through? Come back through, yeah you, You could be my 42, The 0 and 1 I come back to The only one I come back to So come back through my skies my skies Are you gonna even try?

No Delay 05:03
I thought I could hold out I thought I could win Fasten the seatbelt And watch our love begin A little longer And I’m sure you’ll find it soon Your heart buried in treasure in some forgotten tomb I felt the earth move And the years tumble away But since I met you Feels like one long song has played A little stronger And I’m sure you’d hear the tune i’ll just get better and you can join in soon Oh but on the other side I see our heaven through the night I’ll do my very best to let go Still I am waiting at the gate you have something to say? cause I say I love you no delay But what if it’s bright out And you still can’t see my face Is it my brilliance That your eyes choose to erase Much more about choosing Than witnessing my grace I’m afraid I might disappear In the game of see and wait Oh but on the other side I see our heaven through the night I’ll do my very best to let go Still I am waiting at the gate you have something to say? cause I say I love you no delay Can you say you love me, No delay? I realized something What if my waiting and worry Was maybe the very thing That keeps you in purgatory So I’ll open the door now But I can’t expect you to follow I can’t keep on wondering if You’ll be right here tomorrow Still I am waiting at the gate you have something to say? 'Cause I say I love you No delay Can you say you love me no delay Won’t always be lovely Whatd ya say? Can you say you’re in love with me Anyway? If so I’ll rush to you No delay

All or None 03:25
My sweet mother taught me how to care for you She taught me how to love and give, bottomless pool But love is not an ocean when the rain won’t fall Is give and take with less giving love at all? All or nothing All for one This is a call for one thing: All or none I always thought it best to mute my dance, lie low To mitigate the risk of stepping on your toes But I’m bursting and my heart has got no place to go And anyway the stillness is our one true foe I only have so much room to box myself inside So I’m taking up space, no more time to hide All or nothing All for one This is a call for one thing: All or none All or nothing All for one This is a call for one thing: All or…

Fix Yourself 03:29
The rug’s been pulled from under me And now I see The fabric of our love was from a rotting tree Twisted dry from the ground What’s left is a carpet of dust I guess a good way to teach a man to fish is to rip him from the mermaid’s bosom into I miss you in waves Even when I catch my breath I can’t trust I lost my best friend when I needed him most You know it’s the end when you’re talking to ghosts They’re saying “when will you finally be through?” You try to offer Consolation daughter But we both know upon review all I ever wanted All I ever wanted was All I ever needed was truth And all I ever wanted was you Polarized she flipped me on my head Said "try putting your ear to the grave instead." He dropped me off in the desert Sayin “fix yourself, I love you, goodbye. 'Cause the only thing worse than you watching me leave Is me watching you suffer while I cannot reprieve The punishing glare of the sun upon your spine.” I lost my best friend when I needed him most You know it’s the end when you’re talkin to ghosts They’re sayin, “when will you listen to the view?” All he ever can give All they ever can live All he ever can give is truth But all I ever wanted All I ever wanted All I ever wanted was you All I ever wanted was you

In Return 03:48
In Return The smell of rain on dust Reveals the obvious There’s clarity How did we get to here? The fear of fear of fear That’s you and me But I refuse to lay back down Forget you’re there since I left town Give in to the big sleep I have so much to say to you Persist resist, but the only truth Is I want love to return to me You’re pushing me away I’ll give you space But one thing will stay and Return When will I learn? Whatever’s given, always send back love in return You’re scared, you’re overwhelmed Yeah, anyone in hell Would build up walls to block you from the fire You say it’s not fair to me No reciprocity But I can’t help it, my love won’t tire Golden rays of adoration Pour out despite communication’s Best attempt at shutting it out But you say your love does yawn There are limits, go on, get gone But I’m a wild dog, I won’t bow down Return When will you learn? Whatever’s given, I’ll bounce back with love in return Return Love’s what you deserve Even if my love may never be returned

At night you hold me Like you did at the dawn of spring In sleep you tell me You’ll be here through anything But waking up’s like the radio plug’s Been ripped out suddenly The music’s stopped, I’m here alone You’ve dropped your dance with me I don’t have the heart to tell My heart that it’s so wrong So can someone please tell my dreams that you’re gone? Like telling babies That Santa was a lie I feel the empty space Where you once were by my side Waking up’s like the radio plug’s Been ripped out mid-high note The music’s stopped, the party’s off But my soul missed the memo I don’t have the heart to tell My heart that it’s so wrong Can someone please Tell my dreams that you’re gone? Can someone please Tell my dreams that you’re gone?

My gut is a hand that tries to grab the world clutching and fluttering at every turn I bit the hand that tried to feed me you I didn’t know how much I needed to Gulp down your water Sun’s golden daughter Sun earth and moon What would we do Without your pull into the new? My love’s a blade that cut the final thread Melted the iron rod inside your head When we were free to finally rock the boat Something burned from deep inside my throat And I gulped down your water Sun’s golden daughter Sun earth and moon What would we do Without your pull Without your pull Without your pull into the new?
9.
Crazy how I feel Living without you Inside this house that we built It seems like the windows Finally open Letting the memories out Go on and love her Love her forever I will not tell her I told you to You'll never know dear How much I love you Lovin's for fools Lovin's for fools Maybe you'll find me Walking the garden Looking for something pure Roots that are growing Deeper and deeper Maybe you'll pull them too Go on and love her Love her forever I will not tell her I told you to You'll never know dear How much I loved you Lovin's for fools Lovin's for fools

Puppy dog eyes how could i ever try and scold you When part of me dies Every night that I can’t hold you? My head out the window My ears hangin low Just tryin to follow you wherever you go Puppy dog eyes You’re this girl’s best friend Love butterfly How could I ever want to catch you You’re a constant surprise In dreams I only want to match you My heart all a-flutter Your wings in the sun Let’s share all our love with everyone butterly, My love for you won’t end

about

Here's a new album I recorded while quarantining in my 120 days of solitude in a trailer in the Joshua Tree desert.

It was recorded while I was staying on Serrano, Cahuilla, Chemehuevi, and Mojave tribes' land.

Pay what you can if you'd like to support my medical treatment - I strongly prefer you become a patron even at $1/month rather than buying the album here on bandcamp. www.patreon.com/kph

And if you can't afford it, of course it's free for you to listen to.
