About The Recordings

The earliest of these songs was written in 2010 and I have continued writing until 2014 when it became clear to me that I would work on this story forever. The story was initially called "Sam/Sara, and The End of Sorrow" As time went by and we familiarized ourselves with the emotions and intimacy of the sounds, many songs and ideas were cut in the process making the story more and more deeply colored in my eyes.

Most of these songs were recorded live, after many failed attempts to produce a "hi-fidelity" record. Instead I eventually decided to let the songs be as they chose to be. At this point, I am deeply satisfied with how it has developed.

It was Abby, my forever love, who you hear singing from time to time as the voice of Sara. She did everything in her nature to allow this album to reach other's. She believed in it when I wanted to quit, many times. She stood silently by as I recorded the wind and waves passing over a cave by the ocean in Spain. She waited with me for the sea gulls to speak at the Oregon coast. She co-wrote and re-wrote the whole story many times. The music and I are indebted and tied to her in a most grateful and glad way.

My friend in France, Clement Grison, has asked that you all be invited to listen to the entire album since it is a story that only unravels when listened to in the chapter order.

With the warmth of the sixth day of September,


released September 18, 2014

Written, recorded, mastered, and produced by Brett Larson and Abby Larson. Most instruments are played by one or both of us. Dear Joseph Braun is the man who holds the guitar in Moonlight. Forrest Lotterhos wrote the piano parts for 'Heaven'.

The cover and back of the album were made in Oregon by our dear friend Angie Spiering who is as lovely as the forrest itself.

The photographs for 'Moonlight', 'McKenzie', 'There Is No Prison', 'At the Ocean', and 'A Hymn to the Sea' were taken by the huggable polymath Stuart Eagon, whose films and stills move my heart in unpredictable and quiet ways.

Track Name: Chapter 1: The Dream

I wish we could tell you
What we have seen

Be weary of the world
It comes in colors
Darker than these

But your heart
Is lost in the leaves
They will
surely fall

All at once you will succumb
In a beautiful wave
At the end of sorrow
Track Name: Chapter 2: Moonlight
Don't you worry about this
Because I already have
All you need is to forget

Because in the moonlight
You look so beautiful
And in the ocean's arms I
Feel beautiful

Dark hair
You are the sky
When you go
Go walking by

There's stars in the sky
And I'd like to stay
There in your eyes
But always

Morning will come

No storm ever could break us up
But we might never see land again
Track Name: Chapter 3: Into The Daisies
The chains on our neck
Are made of daisy flowers

We're spending our days
We're only meant for hours

All of this will go
and then we'll go
So you stay here
With me

This is my only way to say
I want to take your bones with me
Into my grave

Rolling eyes around
Rolling tears are down
They're already down

Because it's the wilder cave
And I'll be here to stay


Come on now
Let's forget
Worries for the faithless

Come on now
Let's forget
I said anything
Track Name: Chapter 5: The Setting Sun
Come off the sand with angel's wings
Cold body won't rise

All love fades
While you breathe
love fades out
Track Name: Chapter 6: The Daughters of Waves
Come away again
The daughters of waves
Recede then fade

Come away again
the daughters of waves
recede then fade

Why can't I stay with you
Because the setting sun has died
But I know
no no

But I want to stay with you
Because the setting sun will rise
I know you will rise
I know you'll rise

Come away again
the daughters of waves recede then fade
And now I miss you
forever like I will do

I know you hear me
Even if you're quiet
I know you hear me
Even if you're quiet

She used to love to dance
Back when we had a chance
But you can't see these waves
coming coming

I know I know
When you're gone you're gone
I know
Better than most
Track Name: Chapter 7: Let You Go
Oh my love
I can't let you go

Say you're gone
and you'll never come back
and I will go

Say your eyes will stay that way
Track Name: Chapter 8: McKenzie
Gray river
let me be
I don't want to go down
Your waves to the sea

All of the boats go out
With such big dreams
They break up on the rocks

They go onto them
They don't come off of them

Tunnel coming all I've waited for
Tunnel coming all I've waited for

Everything will be alright
Emptiness cannot harm emptiness
Track Name: Chapter 9: Heaven
I reach my hands up to the sky
I try

I want to be up where you are
With you

Maybe wings to get me high
I try

From down here
I miss you like the ocean

Hold me for a while
I'm not ready to let go
The ocean knows your name
Better than I
Do now
What should I do now

She walks up there now
With her feet so bare and pure
The sky is golden brown
And she is looking down on me

Don't you
Go where
I can't
Follow you
Follow you

River bend
and let me free
I've never been
Track Name: Chapter 10: Losing
I'll love you forever, oh
I'll love you forever, oh
I'll love you forever, oh

All this time
I've been looking around me
Wish I was looking at your eyes now
my love

I give you all my sky
I leave you with my eyes
Because I won't need them anymore
Better for you where you are

Now I'll leave you be
In heaven with the angels
Talk to you when I'm through
But darling I will always miss you

I'll love you forever, oh
Track Name: Chapter 11: There Is No Prison
There is no prison

There are no walls

You are dreaming
You are dreaming


But now it's over
Track Name: Chapter 12: The Fall
Oh Sara
feel your weight
Let you go
And die from heart break
Track Name: Chapter 13: At The Ocean
Please don't leave me
Even if I,

If I let go
Track Name: Chapter 14: A Hymn to the Sea
A hymn to the vast
