all i know

I wrote this song one night while sitting on the floor of the room in the cover photo. Then, it still had bare studs and a plywood floor. It’s about the enneagram, and a girl, and it kind of borrows from a Springsteen song.

To record, I put some delay and distortion on my nylon string guitar by running it through my amp, which i laid on the floor under my chair and pointed up at the mic. That was fun.

“All I Know”

I guess I’m type five, always in an indecisive state of mind,

There’s so many choices, I guess I’m scared I just won’t choose them right,

All I know, is you sure look pretty,

In your summer clothes, with your black hair down,

And all I know, is I need you with me,

Wherever I go, wherever I go, I hope you stick around,

I know you, you’re a type two, doesn’t seem you’re phased by what you’re walking through,

And you’re shorter than my shoulders, somehow I have always looked up to you,



*shes’s actually a type nine.
