CD + Autographed Insert + Immediate Digital Download
Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album
A real CD you can excitedly tear open in the mail and throw into your car's CD player. Pump out that Summertime's End! CD comes in a jewel case with a 4-page insert. Produced by TuneCore Disc Production services.
For the moment, I'm doing all distribution myself, so I will sign the back of the insert for you and write you a little thank-you note (or personalise it with some message of your choosing if it's for someone else). Just let me know in the message-to-buyer section if you'd like anything special written (or nothing written - i.e. a 'clean' CD insert).
Includes unlimited streaming of With Love From Where You're Not
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
I think this is the most beautiful song I've written. This is where the album gets really good (and where the Relient K influence starts showing), and it's my second-favourite song of mine. I started writing this on the first of January, 2010 (the first song I wrote for the record), and unwittingly kicked off a chain of events that would lead to where I am today. This started off as a piano piece for Hayley's birthday, but turned later into a full song. The lyrics have a double meaning: the shining of her beauty, but also the shining of her faith as Jesus mentioned in Matthew 5:14-16 - "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." The chorus melody and lyrics are, in my opinion, the best I've written for any song. The only thing that stops this song from being perfect for people, I believe, is the Auto-Tune. I have been blessed with many things from God; I have not been blessed, though, with a good singing voice, and the takes for Your Sunrise would have hurt the song if treated any less harshly by the pitch correction. They were my favourite takes, however, and so I felt it was a small price to pay. Overall this is one of my favourite songs, and I hope you enjoy the melody and lyrics as much as I do.
The sun sets so you pull the curtains closed
But did you see the way your room still glows?
My eyes hurt when I stare at you. It shows
Who's really beaming
It's getting late but it's still this bright inside
Your radiance, it stands to be admired
I'll close my eyes but I promise I'm not tired
I'm just daydreaming
Look in my eyes
You light the skies
Outshine the stars
To their surprise
Make day from night
I'll hold you tight
Your sunrise shining bright
You'll never know how much it means to me
To watch somebody learning to believe
And you can’t see, but behind this UV screen
My heart is warming
I used to hide in darkness all the time
Thought that the best times always passed you by
Until a sunbeam taught me how to shine
By shining for me
Your light, it shines so brightly
I've found someone that's right for me
You're shining right beside me
Keep shining on
