about

A labor of love 3 years in the making, Bedford to Bellemeade was self recorded at Joe's house every Sunday from March 2013 through December 2013. It was then passed on to Mike Boren where he spent the next 2 years carefully mixing and mastering it in his free time. The album art was conceptualized from passing around music video ideas and playing off of recurring imagery sang throughout the album. Aaron Tanner of Melodic Virtue then brought this concept to light by creating the surrealistic imagery that decorates the album's cover.

This album is dedicated to Shannan Reed and Kevin Grider.
When I stopped searching, I was finally able to see you in my own face, hands, movements, and laughter.

Track Name: Tongue in Cheek
I've learned my lesson, you write it all down.
You take what you can get, cause it might not come back around.
I stepped on some broken glass,
holding my earrings and photographs of who I've left behind.
They say it's all tongue and cheek, but what does that really mean?
And I like the kind of birds that fly, so very high.
And I'm out the door and in through a window.
Track Name: Old Piano
Verse 1:
Little bird turns into a big bird on the double.
You've got these gears you turn and I think that I'm in trouble.
Remember that old piano that sits in the back.
It's the one that I always want to play so bad.

Chorus 1:
Sing in front of the TV, yeah.
And would you stand still for me to see.
And you say I'm such a good person, oh yeah.
And I say you're not so bad yourself.

Verse 2:
I will sit here till my feet go numb in the corner.
Clap your hands and sing for me, yeah.
And now I play the guitar that my uncle use to play.
And it's all in my head and now what was I gonna say?

Chorus 2:
Sing in front of the TV, yeah.
And would you stand still for me to see.
And you say I'm such a good person, oh yeah.
And I say you're not so bad, not so bad.

Bridge:
Sing in front of the TV, yeah.
And would you stand still for me to see.
And you say I'm such a good person, oh yeah.
And I say you're not so bad, not so bad.

Chorus 3:
Sing in front of the TV, yeah.
And would you stand still for me to see.
And you say I'm such a good person, oh yeah.
And I say you're not so bad yourself.
Track Name: Wink Wink
Verse 1:
This two room apartment scares me to death.
I stay awake with coffee, so put another pot on Charlie.
I'm not gonna fight with you just because I know you want me to.

Chorus 1:
Some how you've changed,
or maybe I'm not gonna play your games.

Verse 2:
Bats fly from my balcony oh so late at night.
And black birds in the morning sit and watch me think.
I got a blank face to you, but to them they can see me wink.

Chorus 2:
Cause some how you've changed,
or maybe I'm not gonna play your games.

Verse 3:
And this song it might sound cliché,
but you can forget yourself just the same.

Chorus 3:
Cause some how you've changed,
cause baby I'm not gonna play your games.
Maybe I'm the one who's changed
Cause baby I'm not gonna play your games.
Track Name: Gift
Verse 1:
People have questions that nobody knows the answers to.
They sit in their big rooms, on even more important afternoons.
It's bad to think of what she'd be like if she were still alive,
but still I try to think about what she would be like now.
Words are hard to come by, but when they're there,
when they're there it will be time to share.
Laughter comes from understanding one another.

Chorus 1:
Whooo! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Verse 2:
These days a hug would be a gift.
Even if it's all I would ever be able to afford to give
We think too much about where we live.
Apartments that smell like old basements.

Chorus 2:
Whooo! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Chorus 3:
Whooo! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Track Name: Me and You
Verse 1:
You're beautiful to me.
I just thought you should know,
cause that's the only way I'll ever be happy.
And when am I ever going to learn,
that what's easiest isn't gonna be so easy in return.
And I've got every light in this place on.
Cause baby, I just can't stand the thought of ever bein' alone.

Chorus 1:
And what am I gonna do to not be so hung up baby on you?
Cause there's never ever, ever gonna be a me and you.

Verse 2:
So when you decide that you're going to leave,
I just thought you should know that you'll be taking a part of me.
And when It comes to loving you this is how it goes.
I'm stuck wondering how you didn't even know.

Chorus 2:
And what am I gonna do to not be so hung up baby on you?
Cause there's never ever, ever gonna be a me and you.

Chorus 3:
And what am I gonna do to not be so hung up, hung up baby on you?
Cause there's never ever, ever gonna be a me and you.

Verse 1:
Sit on the edge of my bed at night, smoke a cigarette.
Cause I know it's not right, I've done lost you tonight.
And I'm so frightened of a what actually could happen.

Chorus 1:
Well it's keepin' me, well it's keepin' me alone.
Ohhh
Well it's keepin' me, well it's keepin' me alone.

Verse 2:
Well this is me. I do what I can.
I'm simple. You might even have to explain it.
I'm not good at these complicated games.
I'm just a woman whose love will always stay the same.

Chorus 2
And it's keepin' me, well it's keepin' me alone.
Ohhh
Well it's keepin' me, yeah it's keepin' me alone.
Well it's keepin' me, yeah it's keepin' me alone.

Bridge
Oh, what can I do to make it up to you my love?
Oh, what can I say to make you stay my love?

Chorus 3
And I'm so frightened of what actually could happen.
I'm so frightened of what actually could happen.
Well it's keepin' me, keepin' me alone.
Well it's keepin' me, well it's keepin' me alone.
Track Name: How I Feel for Me
Verse 1:
I sewed the sutures as I watch you drive away.
Some things are easier said than done they say.
But I can't bare the thought of home, or bein' alone.
So I flew out to see some old friends, get too drunk, and pretend.

Chorus 1:
Cause when it's the hardest thing for me to do
Yeah I just don't see how it is for you.
And tell me what I'm doing here.
Tell me it will be worth it in the end.

Verse 2:
And you tell me not to be sad, not to cry.
That this is a see you later not goodbye.
Believe it or not I'm happy you're gonna leave,
But I just left out how I feel for me and Yeah.

Chorus 2:
Cause when it's the hardest thing for me to do
Yeah I just don't see how it is for you.

And tell me what I'm doing here, yeah.
Tell me it will be worth it, worth it in the end.
In the end.
Track Name: Slow
Verse 1:
I'll stop in here for just a minute
While you sleep, you sleep, you sleep it off
Oh my love, my love, then I'm taken off
It's hard when you think you know someone
and find out you really don't, yeah

Chorus 1:
Cause when you, you've been, you been so alone,
and you can't figure out what you've done so wrong
And you don't, you don't have anybody waiting for you at home
You wanna drive slow home
To drive so very slow
To drive so very slow
To drive so very slow home

Verse 2:
Now I might be crazy, but you made me like this
No forget that, I made myself like this
If I'm so condescending, than you're manipulative
If I'm so condescending, than you're manipulative, yeah

Chorus 2:
And I hope ya been, you've been so alone
And you can't figure out what you've done so wrong
And you don't, you don't have anybody waiting for you at home
So then you'll know, you'll know what it's like
To wanna drive slow home
To drive so very slow
To drive so very slow
To drive so very slow home

Chorus 3:
And I hope you've been, you've been so alone
And you can't figure out what you've done so wrong

To drive so very slow home
Track Name: Parachute

Take advantage of what we have learned, what we have learned

Imagine I'm on a plane bout to parachute out, out to the ground

Cause it's not easy, but it's not hard
No it's not easy, but it's not hard

Track Name: Drive
Verse 1:
They can't see you like I see you, nobody will see you like I do
And we danced a two step, that's two steps to me and two from the rest
And I'll sit here and watch you wave from the car
Tomorrow's already here and we've laughed so hard
I've got dreams of a small house, a house to make my own
A place under a tree that's dry as a bone

Chorus 1:
I'll drive around this town
I'll swing low to this ground
Cause I've let too many people drive me around.
Four years away from myself, time spent being too proud.

Chorus 2:
And I'll drive around this town.
And I'll swing low to this ground.
Cause I've let to many people drive me around.
Oh four years away from myself, time spent, time spent
Oh time spent being too proud.

Whoooo....
Whoooo....
Whoooo....
Whoooo....
