April is a song about self-assurance and boldness in the face of making decisions that were hard to arrive at. Time is an important ingredient in understanding yourself and your needs, and it's better to take the time to make the right decision than to rush into the wrong decision. April is a song about sticking to the path you chose for yourself and knowing that things will work out eventually.

This song took a little while to sit right with me, and originally had a more verse/chorus structure. I realized that what I wanted to say was said in the first few lines, and it didn't need much more than that.

Recommended listening experience is with all the lights off, lying on the floor, maybe slightly inebriated

Hope you enjoy this track x



I don’t know why it was April
And not six months before
I think maybe I wasn’t able
I think maybe I wanted more

And I know you wanted October
And everything in between
I don’t regret not yielding

I have been away for some time I know you say
That we won’t be far apart
