about

This is the first single from Spaces Between Memories. A music video was shot in Berlin and Oranienburg.

We are created by the moments that we’ve lived. Some have been more important than others. Some we forget and some we remember. This song is a reminder for me that those moments that I’ve forget are still very much a part of me. Little insignificant things might have defined what we are today.

lyrics

Moments That Were Not

Whether your days have been many
or whether they've just been a few
they have been nothing but moments,
moments that lie within you

You dived as deep as you dared to
brought in the pearls you could bring
You weaved all those pearls into stories
Rosaries tied without string

Once there was something between them
among those lines that you wrote
but some of those words have gone silent
they were too quiet to note

Now nothing is holding together
those notes that have lessened to few
There is no past without present
no memories live without you


Where did you leave the voids,
the gaps that you forgot,
the spaces between memories,
the moments that were not?
