The song Mrs. Bluebird takes a darker turn and peels back some of the many layers of mental illness and depression that have plagued countless families as well as my own. The disease can impact generation after generation, and my hope is to limit its grasp for my own children as much as I can while also giving them tools to work through the pain. I think the beauty of this song is that the low key melodic arrangement alleviates the harshness of its painful content.


These bars will never make you free / but you’re safer now that you're with me
Might not know it, but I can show you how even captives can feel free
Some things can come into your life, Slow enough to pass you by
But before you know it, there's nothing growing, and your trapped by the winter sky


Mrs. Bluebird
Mrs Bluebird
Mrs Bluebird you're so beautiful
I just wanted you to know, It's not safe out there no more
and I can't let you go / outside these doors


There's a side of me that you can't see Knowing you're broken doesn't make you free
And sharing the pain with a cross and a name
Hurts me more that you can see

Nothing you could ever do Makes you deserve to hear the truth
There's poison air in the atmosphere
and I Wouldn’t wish for that on you
