about

guy grogan Santa Fe, New Mexico

I am a songwriter and one-man-band based in Santa Fe, NM.

All music is written, performed, and recorded by me on an 8 track at my home in "master bedroom studios."

I aspire to write well-crafted, accessible, and unique material using poetry and sound to create songs that articulate the bittersweet in an abstract, but relatable way. If I feel it, my hope is you will too, and like how it sounds.

Track Name: some days amazing
days won’t go away
don’t want to stay
kind of hover
pain pull out the nails
forget your failures forever
see once there’s a dream
it doesn’t mean there’s not another
lean into what you believe
it only holds you together

some days amazing
soul centers blazing
beam like the sun
be the right kind of light
unusualizing
whats never changing
breathe out
your fundamental bright

veiled sonnets are sails
of whispers and wails
blown by lovers
maze ungame the plays
burn off the haze
for each other
gleam with what isn’t seen
swim in the cream of cosmic mothers
leave what doesn’t seem
to matter or mean whatsoever

some days amazing
soul centers blazing
beam like the sun
be the right kind of light
unusualizing
whats never changing
breathe out
your fundamental bright
Track Name: oblivion smiles
our days are our soul’s vacation
postcards to care of oblivion
the weather is fine at least for today
sometimes the sun swords swipe through
killing the clouds with its wounds of blue
showers of purgatorial rain

oblivion smiles

lions of light sleep in me
vultures are waiting in the trees
the circling sharks of my mind’s refrain
science and love confounding
invisible faces are frowning
treading the waters of me again and again

oblivion smiles
Track Name: albatross
can’t say how I feel now
can’t seem to feel
what’s flown away for now
what stayed to kneel
can feel it in the air right now
but can’t seem to breathe
overflow my heart with now
the past always leaks

a light passes through me
a darks on the way
a time for new beauty
a time for old pain
you’d think that there could be
a love free of flames
my albatross won’t leave me either way

holding out for something more
something less ideal
swiftly days push past our doors
to rooms where we reveal
after battle flags are torn
and everything is healed
gleaming every time we’re born
and in what’s unclear

a light passes through me
a darks on the way
a time for new beauty
a time for old pain
you’d think that there could be
a love free of flames
my albatross won’t leave me either way
Track Name: anywhere is here
under sun
never won
never lost
it’s never realized
where’s the fun
why’s it done
can’t keep me
always mesmerized
if you think
between blinks
you can see it
with your own true eyes
here’s the kink
there’s no link
between choice
and what you don’t decide

anywhere for summer
anywhere is here
to tell you there’s no other
breathe or disappear

anywhere for summer
anywhere is here
somehow undercover
faraway and near

might be done
martyrdom
got to row
against your darker tide
keep the same
velvet chains
from slipping
off your soul’s insides
all the stones
that are thrown
then blown around
like dandelions
like a bird
without words
for a song that says
too much to hide

anywhere for summer
anywhere is here
to tell you there’s no other
breathe or disappear

anywhere for summer
anywhere is here
you’ll never find another
faraway or near

to be young
is the sum
of all the time
you paralyzed
never comes
you’re the one
to give you all
your heart desires

anywhere for summer
anywhere is here
to tell you there’s no other
breathe or disappear

anywhere for summer
anywhere is here
you’ll never find another
faraway or near
Track Name: with burning clouds
aelysean fields are burning tonight
set on fire with wrongs I can’t right
promises failed to make
what’s become of us
it was too real and it was too bright
for me to see all along I just might
never know what to find
with a wanderlust

play it down
the cure for each other
there’s no ground
to bury each other
with burning clouds
the sunsets of never

will we be more than what we survive
a little less soul you can’t find in our eyes
like silence finding songs without mothers
is there a time when what we decide
will not leave for the rest of our lives
more unknowns in the heart of another

feel it now
don’t run for cover
see it loud
a lifetime of summers
if somehow
you can’t rediscover
give your crowns
away to the rivers
Track Name: yellow bird
i wouldn’t know
it’s so hard to come by
how can I show you
that the past has been bled dry
but I cannot seem to hold the hands of time behind its back for you
but I’ll try

how to atone
for the demons that you’ve seen
they’ve been overthrown
but there’s not much left of me
for you to have just a little faith in when you think you can’t believe
in what I mean

a tear for your drought
i’m turning inside out for you
a chance to be unheard
a miracle, a yellow bird

i don’t know why
it took so long for me to see
it’s ok to cry
before your brought to your own knees
but now that I’ve finally come alive and found the air I breathe is you
we can fly

a promise for your doubt
i’m burning inside out for you
for once there are no words
a miracle, a yellow bird
Track Name: meridien
just for now
got enough to go on
but don't know how
to bear the weight of this love
what if I never realize
all I've waited for is here

so where do we go from here
can't sleep in a bed of fear
well maybe it's not that clear
don't know how to save the years

a world with you
could be a heaven
I died my way to
brought to life
but never letting it be real
how to fly before I'm burning us
with a sun that shines too soon

so where do we go from here
can't sleep in a bed of fear
well, maybe it's not that clear
don't know how to save the years

won’t survive
without another
life to sleep through
time divides by
when our nothingness ends
and the moment when we choose
the only thing we've got to lose

so where do we go from here
can't sleep in a bed of fear
well, maybe it's not that clear
don't know what to say my dear
Track Name: ballad of the limit thieves
somewhere seems evergreen
from tops of the falling trees
hold on to burning leaves
circuit blown dream machines
pirate the living scream
a prayer for st. bittersweet

it’s hard to not believe
in what you thought you’d always be
we are the limit thieves
to steal what you think you need

a fortress for empathy
destroy the golden means
bandits of what you bleed
rewind the elegies
rewrite the tragedies
parade soliloquies

it’s hard to not believe
in what you thought you’d always be
we are the limit thieves
to steal what you think you need
