There’s time to burn letters there’s time not to talk time to steal glimpses in Pandora’s box There’s time to run reckless through yellow-turning lights a time to speed headlong into the other life The other life is just like this one more of me and less of you the other life things happen easily but they’re harder to undo My friends said ‘take it easy, try it for a year or two’ They grew up hearing stories about what the other life can do But we both knew better and we moved too fast Not gonna give that other life a dying chance And now we are together so close we could touch I know just what you’re thinking, I think too much And as we lay dreaming half-spent is the night Is this just a foothold in the other life?

Sit by the lake Listen to the wind The water laps at the shore A raven flies by overhead I’ve never felt lonely like this before You left in your car Headed for home A 4-hour drive or more I walk the same loop again and again and I’ve never felt lonely like this before It’s been a few miles and a few little whiles Children around us, my how they grow A night on our own and now I’m so alone I miss you more than you know - Night has come on The cabin is lit Young ones bring echoes no more The wind sounds the same as I whisper your name And I’ve never felt lonely like this before Yes, we are one we make heat like the Sun The days they float past and I thought I was stronger alone Did you cry, too in that space that we knew When the children were young And the sunsets could not come too soon The space in my heart Big as the sky The quiet, a deafening roar Tomorrow is dragging its feet and I’ve never been lonely like this before It’s been a few miles and a few little whiles Children around us, my how they grow A night on our own and now I’m so alone I miss you more than you know As you drive south with my kiss on your mouth And I just keep watching the door I’ve never been lonely like this before Like this before The moon has come out Behind the clouds The end of this dock an emotional clock That strikes when my heart hits the floor And I’ve never been lonely like this before

Sunset lakehouse I'll sit without I feel your love We grow above Do we have now? De we have never? You sit slow smile I walk for awhile Old hands tight skin time sands do begin Do we have now? Do we have never? Do we have now? Do we have never? We sit we smile So good this while

It’s been a week, the end is near The time to feel is finally here A glass of wine or maybe a flight This could be our night We separate & plow our fields The work is hard, there are no deals The past is gone but the future’s bright This could be our night The way you come up behind me and touch my back it remind me That we are more than friends Let’s see this to the end… I’ll take my time, we’ll paint that town You set ‘em up, I’ll knock ‘em down There are no losers in this here fight This could be our night The way you come up behind me and touch my back it remind me That we are more than friends Let’s see this to the end… Come on baby, let down your guard It doesn’t have to be that hard Play your hand or show your cards This could be our night
5.
Go slow Let the Lord take over the reigns Fly low Flying too close to the sun runs in your veins You’ll know When people cry that means they’re in pain Just go I can’t track your footsteps in this rain Oooh, I can’t imagine a world without you Grass grows & I pray yours would grow nice and tall Sky snows Soon after the colors bleed in the fall Love glows in the shadows Where hope soars through closed doors making better men crawl We know That it all adds up to nothin’, but that’s more than nothin’ at all Walk light Right down the middle of your heart’s open road Tonight I can see you’re walkin’ alone We fight What’s wrong and right disappears behind faces of stone And when you come home, mama Gonna cut loose all the fire I got locked up in these bones Oooh, I can’t imagine a world without you

about

A madly collaborative project by Producer & Musician Nate2timez and Multi-instrumentalist & Songwriter Mark Schirmacher - "Stories From The Other Life"is a quiet, daring, intimate, and buoyant collection of songs that has it's dusky, plaintive roots in the Singer-Songwriter universe, but it's leaves and branches spread out into the majestic ether of LoFi and Bedroom Pop.

Collaborating over about 2 concentrated months in the winter of 2022, Mark would send acoustic + vocal stems to Nate and they got cut up, layered, enhanced, and deconstructed one by one, song at a time.
