I can taste something bitter, in the back of my mouth. Its what I've been chewing on for a while now, Its a word that can sink every ship in this town, Oh that bitter flavor- I taste is doubt. And Doubts only power is to cause sorrow I know, But when its got a hold on me I can't let it go, It consumes my desire to see clearly- you see? This dirty city water keeps raining on me. I wanted to write a love song, a simple one for you, But you were right and called it out said "your muse is blue" she's been deep inside this city, contemplating truth asking for an answer, or any kind of clue. This day began with questions, foggy headed scattered mind, then doubt snuck in & changed my name and took up my time, But in the wake of wasted space I wrote down this line, that no matter where you search for it- the light is in the light. So now if you are listening, deep inside this tune, Is written a reflection one Id love to share with you Even in the darkest city, as stormy as it seems The light that helps me find my way, shines out of you..

Virginia folk meets the indie roots influences of the rainy
city that Proud now calls home.
