This morning I woke up to light slowly filtering in through the blinds as if it could not be stopped, and the inevitable grew in my mind

I watched the plane pull you away, and I thought of you

of memories:

A dense forest breaking into a sunlit field that lead to the creek where we played

Sheets of water, abandoning a lonely sky and leaving an empty world for us

Warm nights when we dived below the surface and danced between cascading yellow lights

The hill covered in cherry blossoms outside the festival, where we watched fireworks fly in the dark

Thank you to the UGA Hugh Hodgson School of Music for having pianos (and to Quentin for pointing that fact out to us). Thank you to Chyna for providing valuable feedback on the album. Thank you to our parents, friends, and anyone who supports us in any way.
