In 2017, I was searching. Searching for inspiration, for discipline, for my voice, for my truth. I was looking for music. seeking my artist out. She called me to the woods, to a cabin, where I spect 3 days alone with my guitar and the silence. This song was born from that experience.

Lyrics

I learned a magic trick
A disappearing act
A little hideout from the world
Displacing memories
Replacing them with remedy
A starry night, a cabin the woods

The air was cold in there
The middle of nowhere
I chose to listen from the start
Hours passed into days
The silence dripped away
I slowly came apart

I find I'm amazed, solitude

I sang of days gone by
I hummed a lullaby
Remembered how to breathe
No way to be misunderstood
Alone, me and the firewood
No one to hear me but the trees

I find I'm amazed, solitude

And now I'm mesmerized, enchanted by this exercise
There's no more normal left in me
My skeptic put to sleep
Awakened inner majesty
Finding alchemy

I find I'm amazed, solitude
