"Keep Me Away" was inspired by a trip to The Museum of Modern Art.


This is the eighth installment of a new song project: Exhibit.

Every Tuesday for 8 weeks I will spend time in a New York City museum. Within one week's time, I will compose and record a song inspired by the visit.


I know what you're thinking
I thought it myself
No you can't fix me
And I don't want your help

Go on, ask your father
And his father before
That piece you been missing
I think they call that the door

I need what I need
You can't keep me away

How could I hurt you
Well I'll tell you how
First you come near me
Then I take you down

My love is deadly
A slow wrecking ball
You'll know that I'm done love
When there's nothing at all

I need what I need
You can't keep me away
You can't hurt me
No you can't stop me
You can't keep me away


from EXHIBIT, track released February 19, 2013
