Let It In

Download MP3



It starts with an itch and a tingle 
Then it builds and expands 
And suddenly all at once my legs won't let me stand 

I scratch till my fingers go numb 
But my skin never bleeds 
A silent accomplice waits and feeds when I'm asleep 

    There's something that lives inside me 
    I promise I never let it in 
    It grows and divides inside me 
    It's making a home beneath my skin 

The seeds have been buried deeply
The roots are in place 
It's crowding the sun and it's darkened my days 

I've taken it all for granted 
But now it's too late 
There's nothing that's left to do but wait

A friend of mine told me to check you out months ago, which I did.Though, I have to say, you're music has evolved and I truly believe you have found your way. Thank you for sharing! And don't stop creating!

Having the video helped a lot to verify what I was hearing. I enjoyed this song, not just for the lyrics this time, but the sound too! Although the quieter bit around the 2:35ish mark till about 3 was a little hard at first to make out in contrast. I'm starting to go through all of the Ashes songs and listening to them, and this is the first time I've ever been able to hear your music. I definitely enjoyed the experience and am looking forward to hearing the rest of it.

Hey Josh. I just discovered you and I really dig it. I was poking around on tonight (Mon 1/18/11) and found your tune because it was listed under "accordion" samples. Then I listened to the tune and voila! Great song. Insanely catchy and I love your voice. I applaud your total open source-ness.  Please let me know if/when you roll through NYC and I'll come out to see you.

How did you learn how to play so many instruments :O!
Josh Woodward Back · 4 years, 3 months ago

*laughs* Well, you just bang on drums with sticks, so those don't count. Everything else either has a keyboard or strings attached, so really, you only need to learn two instruments. :)

Josh Woodward Back · 2 years, 4 months ago

Awesome! Unfortunately, I don't read or write music, so I'm not capable of giving anything more than what's up there. But if you play it and catch it on tape, I'd love to see!
