about

"Time stamp is my attempt at putting a date on all the things that have happened up until now and moving on. It’s the end of a chapter, moving away from the place I was when the songs were written, from a heavy hearted, sunken eyed moment of distrust and disappointment. Each song is a heartbreak here to be shared, because it all heals in the end."

THANKS:
Special thanks to Lachy Bruce, you’ve done so much for me as a musician, friend, inspiration. Thank you doesn’t even begin to cover it. And also to Jake, from day one you taught me how to change strings, you made me play that first show, none of this would exist without you and neither would I. Everyone who’s ever sat in a room and listened to me poor my heart out, I can’t miss this chance to say thank you. It was all worth it.

Track Name: Lose Sight
My love’s like cigarettes I keep taking breaks but I can’t quit we’ve built these walls so high no one could ever get in Stop the world spinning and let my head do all the work or press my lips to yours so we can seal this like a curse

I’d never put your feet in wet concrete to hold you down Or tie rope around your waist and never let you stray Cause you’re moving mountains or you’re moving away But the sun is gonna rise if you don’t stay

So don’t lose sight of the moon While you’re counting stars And chase the travelling heart But don’t forget who you are I could free you like a bird if you ask Or I’d follow you anywhere

Caused too many heart breaks from staying in too many places I should’ve packed my bags and ran away months ago I’ve crossed oceans without a single hesitation and bought too many one way tickets home

I promised to wait for the dark clouds to pass but you never came back to me Thinking maybe we could see past this If we leave the past behind

So don’t lose sight of the moon While you’re counting stars And chase the travelling heart But don’t forget who you are You said free me like a bird cause I asked But I followed you anywhere
Track Name: Porcelain
I was spitting red on to white porcelain And you were complaining about being Under the weather Did the silence ever make your ears bleed Cause mine are still ringing from the heavy words You buried me in

You barely lifted your head to kiss me And I was driving miles in pitch black streets Your head stones been carved Since you were ten years old

And you are more than willing to keep digging the dirt And fall six feet under You’re done fighting for your life You don’t want it anymore

I was nursing heart break from years ago And you were wondering why I couldn’t put myself back together And I hear you’re spitting the same old stories About how everyone you’ve ever loved leaves When you’re the one who never learned how to fight

I don’t want my secrets back I would give them To the whole wide world if I could But when I went out for air You just slammed the door

I want my promises unbroken my heart put back intact I want to trust that someone can love me And now throw it away again

I was begging you to fight for me You were telling me It’s time to leave
Track Name: You're Not A Man
She used to watch you on stage And thought you were the best thing ever created But now she’s up there herself, under the lights alone Are you proud of all that you've done? Took advantage of how young she was and your girlfriend kept telling her to stay away But you were the one picking her up in your car When she was underage, are you proud of how much you fucked up? You’re not a man, you’re a fool Making mistakes at the risk of others safety You’re not a man, this time you lose Cause when that girl grows up, she’ll have had enough of fools like you She waited out under street lights all night So she was always there whenever you needed But you would forced cigarettes between her lips The same way you would force yourself between her hips You would throw your weight around,

Scream words she’s still hearing and when you’re done you moved on to the next girl who’s gonna play along You’re not a man, you’re a fool Making mistakes at the risk of others sanity You’re not a man, this time you lose Cause now that girls all grown up and she's had enough of fools like you
Track Name: Heartbreaker
I think I just watched us fall apart in photographs A detailed description of you breaking every promise you made And I knew this was over long before you were trying to make me stay And my time with you is where I made my biggest mistakes

But I don’t want to be a heartbreaker Cause I did everything I could to change us But you let me down again there’s no way I can pretend But I don’t want to be a heartbreaker

We couldn’t wait for the summer but you couldn’t stand the heat And I can still hear you swearing you’re going to stand up for me But I had to watch your backbone crumble to dust And you had to watch me fall out of love

And it’s not like I planned to treat you like this But you had to cut these ties before your wrists I know these days you’re telling everyone I’m a bitch But I was doing my best trying to recover

But I don’t want to be a heartbreaker Cause I did everything I could to change us But you let me down again there’s no way I can pretend But I don’t want to be a heartbreaker
Track Name: Reality
I’ve got the entire world in my hands and I don’t know what to do with it I’ve got all the time in the world but I waste it waiting for you to come round I’ve been waiting for you to want to settle down, with me

We fall in love the same way it’s written in our favourite books Like you can so cynical and I believe love can be described in looks But somehow this world meets in the in-betweens I hope you want to do more than just ‘settle down’ with me

What if everything I love in this world is temporary I think I’ve been listening to too many love songs

I was certain I was stuck believing in fantasy But I’ll never be with you, in reality

I know you’re never stop believing that you are better off alone But anything I’ve ever faced, I’ve never done on my own So I’ll keep searching for somebody to stand by I’m done trying to convince you that this could be right

What if everything I love in this world is temporary I think I’ve been listening to too many love songs I was certain I was stuck believing in fantasy And I wanna be with you in reality

I’ve got the entire world in my hands and I don’t know what to do with it I got all the time in the world and I’m not going to waste it on you

I know everything I love in this world is temporary So I’m going to keep listening to too many love songs I was certain I was stuck believing in fantasy But I’ll never be with you in reality I don’t want to be with you in reality
