my heart drops a little today, as the world loses another talented musician, kyle pavone at the tender age of 28. i knew of the band we came as romans, but didn’t really start listening to them until my life began transitioning 3 years ago. the lyrics to many of their songs provided me with inspiration and hope at a time when i needed it most. you may hear screaming, but i feel and hear the words. words that provided a comforting space to crawl into. you’ll be missed brother. thank you for creating and adding a bit more light into this ever darkening world.

“holding on with all i have inside for the sake of my life

i’m pulled underwater

crying out i call for anyone to share this fight

but i’m sinking farther

so weathered, worn and battered, i will stay

keep treading, as i’m dreading the waves

my hands are tied but i will make it

i’m not shaken

even when my mind’s exhausted, i survive

and the world tries to drown you out

flooding your life like water-filled lungs

waiting for the day this storm will pass and leave my life

it only makes me stronger

i don’t want to wait, but all that has been on my mind is, how much longer?

so weathered, worn and battered, i will stay

keep treading, as i’m dreading the waves

my hands are tied but i will make it

i’m not shaken”
