about

This song is about suicide/self harm and the uneasy feeling when finally understanding you can't change someone else.

It's dedicated to anyone and everyone--dear friends included--who have/continue to go through difficult times. There is always someone willing to talk, and you are never truly alone.

lyrics

Generic Love Song (Suicide Lullaby)

"Her light's bleeding,
From her eyes,
Onto the floor,
Where I adored you before

You were seeping,
In through the cracks,
Into the spaces,
You don't get back,
When you've gone away

And this place,
Ruins flowers for me,
And you don't care,
But they are everywhere I go

Could you please,
Slow it down for me,
'Cause you're everywhere,
And anywhere I go

Did you expect me to say?
That you were everything?
That I never felt this way until I met you?

Well it's a lie and you know,
As lies often go,
We never say how we feel until it's much too late

Maybe all you need is,
A Generic Love Song,
Baby,
So you can think,
Clearly,
A Generic Love Song,
Baby,
For you and for me,
So we can be

Totally free

So I'll ask you why,
You left us alive,
Can't you hear them cry?
Every Goddamned night?

Until I come in,
And beg you to stop,
But you're yelling and you're yelling,
And you're yelling and you won't--

And you're yelling and you're yelling,
Now I'm yelling and we're yelling,
It's always yelling always yelling,
This yelling and this yelling,
And you won't

Expect me to say,
That you were everything,
That I never felt this way until I met you

It's true and you know,
As truth often goes,
We never say how we feel until it's much too late

Well maybe all you need is,
A Generic Love Song,
Baby,
So you can think,
Clearly,
A Generic Love Song,
Baby,
For you and for me,
So we can be

Totally free."

Music can change the world. It's as simple as getting into a better headspace. Whether it's through your headphones, speakers, or coming out of your lungs, music can & does change you.

I put my heart in every song--music makes me feel, & that's the best part.

I hope these tunes can make you feel something too.
