about

An impromptu acoustic version of a track I've had for about a year, recorded during a live stream on my Ustream channel.

lyrics

I walk through the hallway
portraits of strangers glaring back at me
An empty stare returns my wondering eyes
I wonder what they'd think of me

This empty building
Sprinkled with water and light
Returns my wandering footsteps
As if someone's joining me

I think someone's joining me

As I enter the studio
The speakers blare my favorite song
And I wonder if someone's listening
feeling the same things I do

And as the song starts to fade
the on-air light starts to shine and dim
I call out the song and move along
hoping my words and feelings will one day reach them

Would you mind if I reached you?

I pack my bags and lock the door
the station's sound seems to fade away
and in due time the show is mine
but now it's just another empty airwave

Will I reach them anymore?
Was there anyone I was reaching anyway
I turn on my car radio and I hear my prerecorded message say
I hope you have a nice day.

And as the song starts to fade
the on-air light starts to shine and dim
I call out the song and move along
hoping my words and feelings will one day reach them

Would you mind if I reached you?
