about

Color Theory Huntington Beach, California

80's synthpop is in my blood, but I mostly listen to EDM these days. My songs draw from both, fleshed out with piano accompaniment. Anyone who took music lessons as a kid calls themselves "classically trained," but I stuck with it, earning a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance. After graduation, I left Beethoven and Brahms behind to pursue my first musical inspiration, Depeche Mode. ... more

Track Name: What You Said
What you said was too rude to repeat
What you said made me squirm in my seat
What you said was a showcase of wit
What you said was a box office hit

So you think that you're above me
Well you're obviously high
So you think that you can snub me
Look me right in the eye
Uh oh bang bang you're dead
Shame you said what you said

What you said dragged my name through the mud
What you said left me thirsty for blood
In your head maybe seemed innocent to you
But instead what you said hurt
Even more because it was true

So you think that you're above me
You've forgotten your place
So you think that you can snub me
Say the words to my face
Uh oh bang bang you're dead
Shame you said what you said

So you think that you're above me
Don't get carried away
So you think that you can snub me
Better watch what you say
Uh oh bang bang you're dead
Shame you said what you said.
Track Name: A Safe Distance
I recall the first time you caught me dining alone
At a restaurant on the third floor
You sat down across from me with a bottle of wine
Shook my hand and started to pour
Then opened the window to the music below
A theater under the stars
We shared our life stories and a view of the stage
Falling in love from afar

Though it feels like they’ve played out
The same act a million times
A routine struggling just to keep
From falling asleep reciting their lines
You say this is the way we’re meant
To enjoy the opera
At a safe distance

We’ve met at this table now ten years in a row
To see the same opera performed
Recreating the scene down to the slightest detail
The night our tradition was born
Attendance is low but still the show must go on
The participants gossip offstage
The waiter assures us that the wine is the same
I guess it gets bitter with age

Though it feels like we’ve played out
The same act a million times
A routine struggling just to keep
From falling asleep reciting our lines
Still it makes me happy
I love you at a safe distance
I’ll always love you at a safe distance.
Track Name: We're Not Getting Any Younger
I say I should take you home but you want to stay here
On the beach all alone with our blankets and beer
In the dark how we ache to fulfill this hunger
Cherish it now cause we’re not getting any younger

Ashes in fire pits and fires in our hearts as we move
Crashing waves in an urgent and quickening groove
Consummating the end of a perfect summer
Cherish it now cause we’re not getting any younger

If I never felt this way again
That would be okay
I could die right now a happy man
Because we had today

I peel the tag off a bottle hands dripping with sweat
Write a note on the back that says “never forget”
The best moments race by in a head-twisting blur
Cherish it now cause we’re not getting any younger
Just before sunrise we’re caught in a warm summer shower
So we climb to the top of a dry lifeguard tower
And we’re rocked to the core by the gentle thunder
Cherish it now cause we’re not getting any younger

We’re truly alive today
I’d trade all my tomorrows
For one more taste of this naiveté
For this naiveté
I’d trade all my tomorrows
Truly alive today
In love with the whole world today.
