Liner Notes: I wrote these six songs over the past few years in rooms I lived or stayed in while traveling from California to New York, and from New York to Tennessee. I think it's because of that very fact they have a wistful air about them. Most of my life I've been on the go, constantly relocating and thus yearning for home. I think I've only now come to terms with this. Life is an endless journey, a series of goodbyes, and though we may never find our way back, we have to make peace with where we are now. Thank you to everyone who helped in the making of this EP. 
Special thanks to my parents, for without whose love and monetary support none of this would have been possible.
