Recorded mostly inside a Brooklyn bedroom, Brighter Than Darkness is a homemade scale model of decades of American pop songs re-assembled from hazy, childhood memories of the originals.

Track Name: Hairbrush Microphone
hairbrush microphone
for all night sing alongs
in this rented room
that i call my home

magic thinking
scifi wishing
that a year from now
you’ll still miss me

clap
your hands
move
your feet
let’s
pretend
we didn’t
meet

walked through valleys of
a rundown shopping mall
and saw the face of death
sharpied on a walls

wide awake at
this all night diner
broken hearts
over pancake platters

clap your hands
move your feet
let's pretend
we didn't meet

(instrumental break)

heart on my sleeve
wrinkles on my collar
would you stay
if i made more dollars?

abstract architect
of the universe
if you're really there
just do anything

clap your hands
move your feet
turn this off
and go to sleep
Track Name: Midnight Is Almost Over
midnight is almost over honey
and there's nothing to be done
midnight is almost over honey
i think you're the only one

waiting for the band to start
we walked across the street
we split a slice of pizza
and we found a bench to sit
and you looked at me
like you kinda wanted to kiss me
i thought it could've been
this stupid heart trying to trick me
i thought you just saw something
really funny on my face
i could've missed a spot
when i tried to shave that day
you could've started up
a staring contest without me
anyway the moment passed
and you never kissed me
we got back, the band began
and i never kissed you
in retrospect i kinda think
i might've missed my cue

midnight is almost over honey
and there's nothing to be done
midnight is almost over honey
i think you're the only one

and later on on that week
i asked if you were not busy
you said you were and i think
that you might've lied to me
we never spoke again
and then i tried to explain it
i found a couple reasons
why our love never made it
maybe it's the glasses
and you like men with vision
maybe you like tall men
and i'm only five seven
maybe you are insecure
and thought i would kiss you
if only you were pretty
as the dolls your mom bought you
maybe i'm too shy
and you just lost all your patience
hope that maybe some of this
could make at least some sense

midnight is almost over honey
and there's nothing to be done
midnight is almost over honey
i think you're the only one

(instrumental break)

midnight is almost over honey
and there's nothing to be done
midnight is almost over honey
i think you're the only one
