about

The single from my debut album, "The Last Words of an Empty Bedroom," which comes out May 28!

lyrics

You have tethered me to this ground
And you have taught me all I need
What is a home without these walls and floors?
It is a home not home to me

I am afraid of what I could be
I am afraid of what I could be
If I were to set me free
If I set me free

And you have made me want to stay here
You've made me want to go away
And though I do not want to leave you
I wish I could be gone today

'Cause I am afraid of what I would be
I am afraid of what I would be
If I didn't set me free
If I didn't set me free

Slow down, slow down
What do I do?
Slow down, slow down
Tell me soon

I want love, I want hate
I want you, I want me
I want love, I want hate
I want you, I want me

The days are birds and they're migrating
But up here nothing seems to change
I guess that life's not like the seasons
I guess it's never what they say

And I am afraid of what I will be
I am afraid of what I will be
When I have to set me free
Do I have to set me free?
