Reach Cover Art

Reach started out as a stubborn melody in my head that just wouldn't go away. I originally thought of it as a horn section for a song in the style of Primal Scream. Since there is nothing like a real human horn section, I ended up using synths instead, which gave it a Depeche Mode feel. It is a love song to a younger self who has disppeared. I felt pretty lost when I wrote the lyrics and it was my way of finding myself again.

Lyrics

It’s the end the mark of frailty
Come with me but I must say don’t stop
Release the air that’s binding you to us
And all that’s slipping
You and me aboard the big machine
We ride towards the peaks up high
Above the pillars and the streets
With cars and people laughing

Let me see you break it apart
I can feel you under the skin
And I can reach what you wanted
If you believe you still want it

Destiny is always changing
Take my hand I’ll take you to the start
Before you started thinking
In the train that brought you to me
Through the woods into a forest
We will dance reflecting all the light
The love you breathe into me
Tastes the tears I cried before you

Let me see you break it apart
I can feel you under the skin
And I can reach what you wanted
If you believe you still want it
