"A Million Years" was written in honor of everyone affected by the Orlando tragedy. I wrote the song on the morning that all the news was coming in about what happened the night before in Florida. As soon as I'd written it, I envisioned recording it with friends in a healing space to honor the lost and those who had lost loved ones, and as a way for friends and I to come together to process and sift through the myriad of feelings we were experiencing as queer-identifying folks.

The song features a cast of musicians I am proud to call my friends and collaborators. Jesse Moore, Julia Rainer, Keaton Thandi and I came together for a day in the University of the Arts music studio in Philadelphia to record, and Erin McKeown contributed guitar and vocals later that we added in during the mixing process.
I hope this humble offering of a song can help others who are still hurting, and that it will remind us that we are all connected, beautiful, and strong.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening.

lyrics

I'm sorry Sir, but I'm not sure what I ever did to you
In slow motion, our knees hit the floor-- the "lucky" few
And I never thought I'd watch my brothers bleed
Not in a million years

Wish I'd told you all the things I'd had on my mind, but I was so sure
That we'd have all the time in the world and many more nights
Just like before
And I never thought I'd watch my lover bleed
Not in a million years

And you'll always be pulsing through me my Dear
And some day we'll be loved as we are
Like I knew I loved you that night in that bar, my Dear
And they'll never take my love away from me
Not in a million years
And of all the things I ever dreamed, it wasn't this
Not in a million years
Not in a million years
