Written by Wilfred Galila

It's a bittersweet relief
all that's left is to sigh and believe
that it's all gone gone gone

memories have turned to blue
soon will come the time when thoughts of you
will all fade fade fade away

fly away blue jay with my aching heart
i gave it all away right from the start
it's all very clear now that we're apart
that things between you and me was never meant to be

it's a bittersweet relief
all thats left is to sigh and believe
that it's all...

A heady mix of folk, blues, and rock blended with a touch of everything in between, their music can be best described as whimsical, poignant, visceral, magical, somber, joyful, and downright real.
