ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded at DNA Music Labs. Recording funded by Porchlight, Inc. I will be donating 30% of all profits made from "Spare Change" to Porchlight.

Special thanks to:
-Beatrice Hadidian and everyone at Porchlight for making this possible. You saw something in my music that I didn't know existed; you found a message within my words that is so much more profound and meaningful than I could have imagined. It has been an honor to be able to work with you.
-Brian Daly for the recording.
-Gabe Burdulis and Allie Eykholt for helping me to arrange and perfect this song; my music always grows once i share it with you.
-Mitch Meyer for helping me with the harmonies.
-Reem Totonchi and Anthony Cao for their wonderful musical instruction and mentoring.
-My friends and family for being so supportive through this entire process. I am so excited to be able to share this song with all of you!

Lyrics:

“Got caught in the middle, just biding my time
I’ll never let it slip again.”
Well these words have been choked on, been bent in their rhymes
Through 10 dozen lips and edited signs
To let me slip away; crumbled nerves and aching sides
Don’t let me slip away, 'cause I can’t escape my mind

Until you learn what it takes for me to break
I’m not accepting anymore
Any more of your spare change
'Cause you wasted it last winter
On this girl who’s lost her time
And what am I left with
Five dollars in dimes

You see me wide open, got nothing to hide
And I’m not ashamed of it now
Why are we expected to believe our own lies
It just makes it harder to go outside
The world’s not always waiting
Moving on despite our fears
It shelters all that’s changing
Growing young beyond its years

Until you learn what it takes for me to break
I’m not accepting anymore
Any more of your spare change
'Cause you wasted it last winter
On this girl who’s lost her time
And what am I left with
Five dollars in dimes

You kept me undercut, as if it would have saved me
Just kept me undercut, because it’s how you’ve always won
But you overlooked the fact that these things never fazed me
You know it all just turns to apathy the day we come undone

Until you learn what it takes for me to break
I’m not accepting anymore
Any more of your spare change
Cause you wasted it last winter
On this girl who’s learned her place
Until you learn what it takes
I’m not accepting
Any more of your spare change
Cause you wasted it last winter
On this girl who’s lost her time
And what am I left with
Five dollars in dimes
