about

PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO THIS FUNDRAISER
I wrote this song to honor the memory of my friend Todd Marrone who tragically passed away far too young at Xmas. Todd was an amazingly gifted artist and educator who leaves behind a wife and two children.

With this song, I am raising funds to contribute directly to the Rocco and Matilda Marrone Scholarship Fund set up by Todd's employer, the Lower Merion Education Association, for his children. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to that fund so please give what you can, you can enter any amount above and pay by credit card in a flash.

A lot of love and hard work went into this production, thank you for sharing in the celebration of Todd's life. Enjoy the song.

Studio time was donated by Sine Studios in Philadelphia.

lyrics

CHAIRS

Chairs they're just things
But chairs painted in the foreground
Rouse me to swallow a boundless sea

Tattooed
I can't undo
I can't unlearn
I can't undream, the dream

Stairs go between
But stairs anchor me
I'm grounded hollow left beneath

Tattooed
I can't undo
I can't unlearn
I can't undream, the dream
Marooned
I will wonder
I will wander
I will draw you to me

Lips hold memory
But lips mostly hide our teeth

Of the love
Just this glimmer of

Chairs they're just things
