about

"I wrote 'Water Me Down' in a stream of consciousness way in the few
minutes following a frustrating phone call with someone. Coincidentally, I was at my friend Eric Litmann's house who has a recording setup in his bedroom. I sat on his bed on a winter NYC night with a standard 58 mic up close to my face, and laid down the bulk of this song that night. We then went in and collaborated on the different textures... I tackled drums, arrangement, melodies and production. Eric played the synths and handled co-production. My intention with 'Water Me Down' was to create a playground in which to explore difficult feelings with confidence, triumph and foresight."

lyrics

Never meant to be you
Never meant to me
Never meant to be us.
Never meant for all of this
Never meant for you to love
Never meant for you to trust.
So i’ll take my time, next time
And i’ll do it right
And I’ll take my time, next time
Only with grace, I’ll make you a flood in my
Only with grace, I’ll take all the words that you said
When you brought it back from the ground.
It really waters me down.
You know me better than that, you know I hate it like that
It really waters me down
You know me better than, you know I loved you like that
It really waters me down
