lyrics

on the first day of high school I saw her
on the front row of the freshman choir
she had cheeks as red as roses
flushed from all the introductions
I knew she was what I wanted
when she caught me staring with her

ocean eyes
stormy eyes
like the changing tide
different every time

I met her at my brother’s commencement
to the college she later attended
she had wounds from bad religion
and a face for television
but she won my full attention
when she turned and struck me with her

ocean eyes
stormy eyes
like the changing tide
different every time

ocean eyes
suddenly, I feel like I'm drowning
ocean eyes
so beautiful and terrifying

in my best friend’s backyard on thanksgiving
she made fun of the shoes I was wearing
her charisma was refreshing
gentle, kind, and so accepting
but I saw the end predestined
when I realized that she had ocean eyes

ocean eyes
stormy eyes
like the changing tide
different every time

about

Paul Arend Redding, California

my music is a deeply personal test in pushing past the constraints of familiarity. it reflects my progression of personal development and discovery of self.

the content here should not be viewed as individual pieces, but rather chapters that contribute to a broader work.

I sincerely hope it inspires you to push past what you know, to truly find yourself.
