“Wyoming” Lyrics & More

“The Juggler” Lyrics & More

Our circuses are similar. Our hearts are all breakable, ‘delicate, and fragile.’ Perhaps this record will transcend the proscenium, cross the imaginary line separating the juggler from the crowd, the recording artist from the listener, you from me. If it does, the show is never over. ~SE

“Whiskey Basin” Lyrics & More
