to the sea

I was on a surfing trip in Charleston with some of my best friends when this song came to me. It was late at night, and I was sitting up in a stranger’s living room. Then I went to Corey’s house, and helped me record it.

It’s about getting washed clean of everything that isn’t right, everything else. Sometimes I feel that happening when find my way down to the water.


Charleston, SC

“To the Sea”

I’m up for the ride, I’m out of breath,

I’m down for good times, I’m scared to death,

You’re all I want here, you terrify me dear,

Something inside knows, you’re what I need,

Accompany me, to the sea,

And the waves will wash us clean,

Accompany me to the sea,

And our doubts will go out like the tide,

It’s all so simple, there’s so much excess,

Standing between us, and what might come next,

Feeling real heavy, like I’m soaking wet,

I believe love, I’m scared to death,
