"North Star" was inspired by the American Museum of Natural History's Hall of the Universe.


This is the fifth 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 need it
I need it more than I can say I need it
The spaces
The space grows larger every day
The pull comes
So I abide and shove away

You're my north star and I'll follow you home

Hydrogen + oxygen

I want it
In my blood and in my bones I want it
A compound
An element to call my own
And I thought
If I was gone you'd be alone

You're my north star and I'll follow you home

Hydrogen + oxygen


from EXHIBIT, track released January 15, 2013
