about

"Radio" was my first songwriting collaboration, and one of the songs I'm most proud of on the album. B. Calm played me some instrumental tracks he had around, and one in particular caught my ear.

He said it sounded like a TV show theme song...and that just made me think of a couple watching their favorite TV show together week after week without ever really talking. I happened to be in a relationship like at the time so it was really easy to write about this couple stuck on repeat, using TV and music to avoid facing what they already know inside.

lyrics

it's the same old thing
just another day
these spinning wheels
stay in place
every night i feel the possibility
sometimes i don't know who's to say
what's really real?

CHORUS
but the t.v.'s on
and the stereo
plays another song
we already know
what
what's got to change

just another day wandering
all the downtown streets
and the blinking lights
it's all a blur
i want to go, but i don't know
what should i feel?

and the t.v.'s on
and the radio
plays another song
we already know
what
what's got to change

the city lights
they never stop

all the blinking lights
i'll be alright
i listen to the radio

CHORUS

i listen to the radio
the radio....
