about

This project would not have been possible without an incredible support system of family, friends, and fellow musicians. I count myself especially lucky to be a part of such an amazing community of people. I owe a special debt of gratitude to my teachers Dan Arrayan, Rebecca Sanborn, Andrea Nagy, Linda Top, Jeff Baxter, Margot Hanson and Alan Jones who all helped to foster a love of music in my life. I will forever be grateful to my mentor, role model and friend Moorea Masa who inspired me to write my first song and has been my biggest supporter ever since. Thank you to my parents who taught me to do what I love with focus and drive. And lastly, thank you to the incredible team of artists and musicians listed above who worked to make this dream of mine a reality. - N

Track Name: Bluebird
Bluebird come and rest your wings with me
Sing of sights unknown to me
Sing your sweet soliloquy

Bluebird I used to soar above the waves
On my back the sun’s warm rays
Night has fallen on those days

Fly me beyond these walls
Fly me beyond these walls

Bluebird these bonds that tie me down
Won’t break unless I fall to the ground
Bluebird they have grown strong with time
I couldn’t break them if I tried

Bluebird my spirits broken wings are tied
My eyes are raw from tears I’ve cried
And I can’t find the strength to fly

Bluebird these bonds that tie me down
Won’t break unless I fall to the ground
Bluebird they have grown strong with time
Couldn’t break them if I tried

Fly me beyond these walls
Track Name: Crazy Boy
Crazy boy
It took him all day just to hold my hand
But when he did what joy

Crazy times
We walked around town in the fading light
Oh how I wish he were mine

How do I tell him, how do I make him see
My words are lost when he looks that way at me
Feel so confused but there's one thing I know for sure
If I could love him I'd never ask for anything more

Crazy life
I could spend forever getting lost and found
And turned around in his eyes

Crazy world
Believe me when I say it, I'd give all I have
Just to be his girl

How do I tell him, how do I make him see
My words are lost when he looks that way at me
Feel so confused but there's one thing I know for sure
If I could love him I'd never ask for anything more

Oh how could it be wrong
I've waited this long
So long

How do I tell him, how do I make him see
My words are lost when he looks that way at me
Feel so confused but there's one thing I know for sure
If I could love him I'd never ask for anything more

If I could love him I'd never ask for anything more
Track Name: There's the Door
You were a bright child
Born in July
When the sky was dark with rain

But you grew wild
And those that tried
To help you pushed away

Thought there was more to you
Some underlying tones
But I was too jaded to realize
You were born to die alone

So let's watch it fall apart
Everything that we made
See if I care anymore
I'm sick and tired of playing these games
So go ahead there's the door
Go ahead there's the door

Now you just throw rocks
At things that shine
From inside the fortress you made

Never seeing
The damage you've done
Or the price that you made people pay

Thought that I could break through
All the walls that you built
But I've waited so long
And my desperation has stilled

So let's watch it fall apart
Everything that we made
See if I care anymore
I'm sick and tired of playing these games
So go ahead there's the door
Go ahead there's the door
Track Name: Won't Last
Times they are harder
Than in the past
The things that I've fought for
Feel like they won't last

Now it's dog eat dog
And I'm on the run
Opportunity won't knock
And sleep won't come

And the sky's on fire and I'm all alone
And the world is wilder than I've ever known
And I'm growing higher but I still feel so low
And I'm looking through the rain
Trying to find my way home

Feel like I'm fading
But I can't fall asleep
Want to feel faith
But I can't take a leap

And the sky's on fire and I'm all alone
And the world is wilder than I've ever known
And I'm growing higher but I still feel so low
And I'm looking through the rain
Trying to find my way home

Trying to find my way home
Track Name: With Time
Breathe in, breathe out
Find space in a crowd
Find solace in the sound
Of silence screaming

He's gone, no trace
Just a polaroid of a smiling face
But the nights darkest place
Can't stop your dreaming

So save your tears for when you need them
Your hearts not broken, it's only bleeding
And all things heal with time

You loved, you lost
You learned at a cost
But no dice was ever tossed
Without a gamble

So save your tears for when you need them
Your hearts not broken, it's only bleeding
And all things heal

Save your tears for when you need them
Your hearts not broken, it's only bleeding
And all things heal with time

You'll be fine
