about

" Peekaboo and The Sailing Song are basically about me missing my best buddos now that I’ve graduated and moved away from my college town.

Missing people can be a source of anxiety or a dose of healthy nostalgia, and I think there’s a little bit of both in here. Of course, there’s a dash of heartache thrown in there too.

The biggest lesson I learned from writing these songs is that you really don’t need the high E string on your guitar; It’s just not a necessary string."

- Sam from Grande Canyon

Track Name: Peekaboo
Okay.
Whatever you say.
I'm so messed up
It's my fault.

Like a baby I am laying on my back,
staring upwards as celestial bodies
spin around me.
Like a baby I am failing to see
if anyone more than a few feet away
is looking back.
I never thought that the headlights of my car
would illuminate the ghosts of my friends
in front of my eyes.
Getting sleepy driving up and down the streets,
Discount burgers by the beach,
we stared into the pretty lights.

All I ever do is worry about bills, about
girls, about my parents, about my job,
about wearing sunscreen everyday when I just wanna
hide away and play guitar and
wish that you all weren’t so far away.
I never thought that the headlights of my car
Would illuminate the ghosts of my friends
in front of my eyes.
Getting sleepy driving up and down the streets,
Discount burgers by the beach,
we stared into the pretty lights.
Track Name: The Sailing Song
It shouldn’t be this way.
Another complicated conversation
backdropped by the waves. By the way,
it gets better every day
I didn't expect you to check up on me
I appreciate it, okay?

It shouldn’t be this way.
The mainsail crashing down on my face
out there on the bay. By the way
it was nice of you to say
That there's nothing wrong with feeling like this
I appreciate it, okay?

I pulled up the sail.
It got stuck halfway.

Living in my head is no way to get better.
I do nothing now. We used to do nothing together, and it
feels like such a chore being just okay at most.
We slept under the stars, and drove back toward the coast.

Everybody went away.
I’ll get used to not staying up late,
no barbecue a few doors away.
But I'm gonna miss the way
that you picked me up to go get ramen.
I appreciate it, okay?
