about

This is a collection of folk songs that I've written and recorded over the past couple of years. Though I've been writing songs for over a decade, this is the first collection I've released commercially.

Each song captures different sides of being in (or not being in, as the case may be) a relationship. 'The Beginning of the Beginning' and 'Say Hello' capture the pure giddiness of the beginning of a relationship. 'A Memory', as the title suggests, finds Cresswell nostalgic for past love. The track 'A Country Road to Nowhere' is an homage to Joni Mitchell's 'River'. While Joni longed for a river she could skate away on, 'A Country Road to Nowhere' finds Cresswell longing for a quiet place to hideaway... with 'just me and you.'

Track Name: Say Hello
I have this old t-shirt I'd like to see you in
hanging around my apartment on a Saturday
wearing nothing else, but your skin
with which I'd like to have my way

There's this bagel place where I'd like to order for two
while you're sleeping in on Sunday morning
I could make some coffee and bring it back to you
we could stay in bed until Monday morning

Chorus:
Say hello to possibilities
Say hello to you and me

Monday morning waking up we're late for work
and you're laughing at my grumpy face
You say to me 'you wouldn't be such a jerk
if you knew what was waiting tonight at my place'

Chorus:
Say hello to possibilities
Say hello to you and me
Track Name: A Country Road to Nowhere
It's getting cold outside, it's almost November
and December will soon come along
The loneliness of Christmas lights
city streets lit up and bright
ankle-deep in snow when you walk home

Chorus:
I wish I had a fireplace to curl up with
I wish I had someone to sleep next to
I wish I had a country road to nowhere
and we could hide out there
just me and you

They lit the Christmas tree on Broadway
it's not that faraway, about seven blocks from here
But Joni's river runs right through
the great divide I always knew
stood between me and holiday cheer

Chorus:
I wish I had a fireplace to curl up with
I wish I had someone to sleep next to
I wish I had a country road to nowhere
and we could hide out there
just me and you
Track Name: A Memory
A Wednesday night all alone
with nothing but my guitar
and the memory of a love
before it fell apart

An empty beer and a photograph
of love when it was new
The corner's bent but it represents
a world that we passed through
when I, I always loved you
when I, I always loved you

Despite the mistakes we made
I'm still sitting here with no regrets
Just the memory of a love
that I can't forget
because I, I'll always love you
I, I'll always love you
Track Name: The Beginning of the Beginning
You and I we could talk the night away
I don't have much to say
but I like to make you laugh

Hanging out at the bar until 2 am
I could walk you and then
I'll go stumbling back

Chorus:
Here we are at the beginning of the beginning
My head is spinning and my heart is overwhelmed
Here we are and I don't know where we're going
but I'm liking the not knowing
and I guess it's just as well

If history is any indication
I'll approach with hesitation
because I've been hurt before

But now I feel it's a chance I have to take
and though I might be late
you know I'll show up at your door

Chorus:
Here we are at the beginning of the beginning
My head is spinning and my heart is overwhelmed
Here we are and I don't know where we're going
but I'm liking the not knowing
and I guess it's just as well

Bridge:
You have those beautiful eyes
That I could get lost in and I
I really want to kiss you goodnight

Chorus:
Here we are at the beginning of the beginning
My head is spinning and my heart is overwhelmed
Here we are and I don't know where we're going
but I'm liking the not knowing
and I guess it's just as well
