about

Motives was built to cruise. It's music you put on as you move effortlessly down the highway or bike serenely through the trail. It was a very intimate experience making this album and I hope that comes through as you hear each track.

Most everything was written and recorded between October 20th-December 20th 2014. From January till about mid April, it was mixed and tweaked in my spare time.

Track Name: Nite (feat. Morgan Stewart)
The golden boy
The chosen one
You are the night
I am the sun

What’s in your head?
What’s on your mind?
I’ll be the one
To tow the line

I’ll be the queen you’ll be my
I’ll be the queen you’ll be my
I’ll be the queen you’ll be my king I know you are,
I know you are

I see the darkness
I feel it too
I see the darkness in you
Where I want to
Track Name: Over
I was flying down the highway, the traffic flew my way and the headlights made a glimmering stream.
They said you came back, that you were near me. You’re eager to see me. I know it, there’s nothing in my way

One more time again
I want your skin blooming in my hands
I won’t slow down
Until I hear the words trickle out your mouth
"Oh goddamn"

I saw you hold your ground. This won’t be easy if I can’t get you near me. Your shoulder keeps me at bay
I couldn’t break your ground. I thought it was over. But then you came over and the night turned a brilliant red.

One more time again
I want your skin blooming in my hands
I won’t slow down
Until I hear the words trickle out your mouth
"Oh goddamn"
Track Name: Cosmonaut (feat. Phil Jacoby)
We were star-dreaming, wondering what it’d be like
As Cosmonaut flying over the sky
I was feeling nervous until you said what was right
“You won’t know any more till you give it a try"
Track Name: Dream, Repeat (feat. Jordan Serra and Jason Zito)
She got in the car
Lit up a smoke
Put her foot on the gas
Away too fast
I’m having a dream
It was just a dream

No more no never
Giv’n my heart to get broke
No never
Singing your name (drinking my blood)
No more no never
Coming around you
No more no never
Singing my song
No more no never
Track Name: Refract
I know I’ll need to see you soon after the moment ends
You’re in-between every thought that isn’t you
Day dreams I’ll gladly spend

On how the next night goes
Because you really want to know
I mean you’ll never really know
That’s alright, you’re here and I’m ready to go

I love the grain of the pictures we took today
I love the grain of the pictures we took today

It’s clearer the more we talk this through that we will change
We’re not going back up to your room
Memories will be colored soon

By how the last night goes
The lens you look through and try to know
I mean you’ll never really know
It’s alright it’s over. I’m ready to go

Against the grain of the pictures we took that day
Against the grain of the pictures we took that day
Track Name: Double Down (feat. Amanda Collins and Jordan Serra)
Didn’t you know I was watching you last night
When the champagne crashed I felt your eyes ignite
Didn’t you know I would find you here tonight
Let’s follow our feelings you know I’m right
This feels right.

Your gaze holds me still
Black sky, moonlight understands this
I don’t need you to believe it
It’s not easy to leave you
Your gaze holds me still

I’m turning my pale face from you Into the light
Cutting through the night
Cutting through the night

Didn’t you know I was watching you last night
We can’t help ourselves, our bodies have realigned
Didn’t you know I would find you here tonight
Let’s follow our feelings you know I’m right
This feels right.
Track Name: I'd Be Lying
I saw you back-backing down
Love got too real, now you feel too profound
Tell me you miss me now
You’re not the first just to want me around

It doesn’t work like that
Stop reaching for my hand if you won’t grab

If you look from far enough back
we’re a couple of specks that start to interact.
For this reason or that
We pull a part, breaking off to different tracks

That’s why I can’t feel bad
When repetition starts to numb what little we have
It shouldn't work like that
Stop reaching for my hand if you won’t grab
It’s come to that

I saw the other day that you had found someone to keep you warm
A familiar sent hit
And that got me going on the day you left and the reasons why we quite I guess some feelings will persist
Track Name: First Philosophy
It’s hard to explain
I’m not the same
How do I relate?

Have you ever changed
So completely around
That you redefine the ground?

He was in my mind
Holy Spirit Divine
Everything was design

You hear that voice
Inside your head?
You're feel’n love from the dead

He was in my mind
Holy Spirit Divine
Everything was design

Have you ever changed
So completely around
That you redefine the ground?

Spinning like a Carousel
A Carousel
A Carousel
A Carousel

I didn’t mean it that way
What am I trying to say
Should I hide who I am from you?

What was I to do?
This could've happened to you
Think of all you are thrown into

It’s hard to explain
I’m not the same
How do I relate?

When you’re spinning like a Carousel
A Carousel
A Carousel
A Carousel

Get off the Carousel
The Carousel
The Carousel
The Carousel

Get off the Carousel
The Carousel
The Carousel
