about

"Marcy" was written at a point in time shortly after graduating college. I remember thinking the world was pretty open before me -I had a college degree, solid grades, and decent work experience, but I wasn't able to get a job. For the majority of my life growing-up, I had thought the road before me was pretty simply laid out. I'd work hard, graduate from a good school, work a solid internship, and naturally, land a decent job. Well, as many of my peers also came to find out, things don't always work out the way you plan. I floundered pretty hard for a while, and found myself looking back on simpler times in my life for comfort.

And so, "Marcy" was born: a tribute to my neurotic, nostalgia-ridden entrance into the adult world.

lyrics

It’s taken me some time to understand
Living in the past is not in demand,
So I’ll run from it, I know I will.

Maybe when you’re drunk you’ll call me up,
And talk about the girls you used to love.
While the years go by, you’re catching up.

I never thought that I
At 23 would stand here
Singing songs of times
I'd loved before and lost.
When I grow old,
Will I remember what I’ve done,
Or what I didn’t do?

People talk and drown in their own words,
Protect themselves from things they haven’t heard.
So I’ll run from it, I know I will.

I never thought that I
At 23 would stand here
Singing songs of times
I'd loved before and lost.
When I grow old,
Will I remember what I’ve done,
Yeah what I did,
Or who I was,
Or what I didn’t do?
