Expectations & Assumptions

Music and lyrics by Brian Vaughn.

I shouldn’t have to say this, but I can’t stand this silence.
And I wonder if you know what i’m going through.
It seems way too common for words and acts to disagree,
But I expected more from you.
I told you so, sitting right there.

What does it say about me [anything?] that I gave you my trust so soon?
You shouldn’t have accepted.
You know what you did.

If you understand me, congratulations,
But I want more than that,
And you know where I can be found.
If you want me than pursue me.
If I’m worth it just let it show.

I can handle it.
I’m not afraid of these things.
Ask yourself am I a risk that you will take?
Just what am I to you?
I could be strong.
I could be there for you if you’ll only tell me what you’ve been hiding

Honesty is best.
I don’t care if you fall apart- I’ll catch you.
But I cannot keep guessing what this silence means.

If you understand me then you should know this.
I am cut off from every one I see, but you.
You reminded me of something- a piece of me that I thought was dead.
So please don’t leave.
Don’t leave me like I was before.

I’m not desperate.
I’m not begging.
I just wish that you could see the potential in between us.
All the things that this could be.
Tell me what I’m going through [word for word].
You can repeat what I just said.
I don’t care.
Just something to remind me that I’m not alone in here.

This is what the creative process looks like. The music, especially the guitar playing if unique and captivating. The singing is different too. I think it's the phrasing that is catching my attention. Well Done!

Just flipped open the laptop to this here on alonetone. Just an outstanding track. The opening buck-fifty-seven of guitarwork is simply brilliant... And the song only gets better with the spot-on vocals. Radio-ready. I know before I've mentioned hints of Matthew Sweet (in all the great vocal delivery and outstanding songwriting) and Foo Fighters (with the incredibly guitar-driven arrangements and counterpoint of clean and edgy), but this music is so much more than the sum of those parts. I suspect that if either Mr. Sweet or Mr. Grohl heard this track, they'd say, "Damn, I wish I'd written that." This song delivers like a powerfully honest stream of consciousness that leaves me thinking of one word only... Integrity. Outstanding track, Brian. This truly is music at its best.
