I was sad and wrote this song. 100% of it’s sales will go directly to the Jim Collins Foundation, which is an non-profit organization that supports the Transgender community; a cause that is very dear to me. If you or someone you know feels scared or threatened by this weeks events, please know there are WAY more good people than bad, and we will continue to support each other.

I don’t usually like “protest-songs”. I tend to find them kinda crass if not pandering but I honestly just don’t know what else to do right now. It’s not supposed to be an angry or hateful song, but more sad and confused, addressing what seems to be a significant gap of empathy between fellow human beings.


Do you ever sigh
On your back at night?
Do your feet ever hurt?
Do you worry for someone you love?

Have you ever come undone?
Have ever shot a gun?
There's girl you never met
Who's just trying to take care of her son.

Don't you know what they mean
When they say "law and order?"
And turn on the hose?

And what would you do
if they came for your lover?
Would you hold them close?

It's just a bad dream tonight.
It's just a bad dream tonight.
It's just a bad dream tonight.
It's just a bad dream tonight.

And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love.
