about

I wrote this song while homesick in Europe with Alkaline Trio. This is the first song I've ever written on piano. The recording was finished shortly after the tour when I moved to Vermont. If you listen carefully, you can hear the birds and wind chimes outside our house.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Almost whole, feels empty inside
It gets so lonely at night

Almost home, going back to the farm
Find my way right back into your arms

Broke like a puzzle that fell to the ground
One piece went missing and could not be found
I'm feeling down

Here we go on another long road
It should get easier, it don't

Almost whole without my heart near
It makes me wonder what I'm doing here

Broke like a puzzle that fell to the ground
One piece went missing and could not be found
'til you came around

With no oil the tin man can't walk
He looks fine on the outside but, it hurts just to talk

Come pick me up
I've had enough
Put me together and then

I'll be the man you fell in love with again
Partner, protector and friend

I become whole in the end
