about

Just in Time is an album of life experiences throughout the past few years. It is about my struggle with depression, anxiety and heartbreak and learning how to deal with the hand you are dealt.
The tracks are set up chronologically, beginning in winter of 2012.

I would take to take a moment to say thank you.
Thank you to everyone who has inspired me to create the music on this, my very first solo album, Just in Time. I’d like to thank my father, the Captain Vivares for his endless support and saying that he’d rather I join the circus over going to school for something that I wouldn’t want to do. My sister, Heather for always pushing me to do great things, sending me stupid videos and while somehow still being productive and brilliant. My mother Fiona for making sure that I’ve got my life in order. Julian Decorte for letting me play The Last of Us while he did all the work. Alex Moscall for making me feel not even remotely awkward in front of the lense. My TABB family for turning me into the musician that I am today and for always letting me make the worst jokes humanly possible. Thank you for the fun, puns and good music Alex H, Sarah, Kyle, Jonathan, Meagan, Steven, Justin, Jacob, Peter, Michael and so many others. My K-Hole family/the sorority for keeping me sane at work and home. Thank you for making me laugh, Jay, Big Country, Lindsey, Lauren, Jesse and of course, my rock, Julia.

Track Name: Your Sun, the Moon & the Sea
I am the sea and I can breathe.
I’ll splash and crash into dawn.
You are the moon and you made me swoon.
You moved me, you moved me into hope.

And for a while there we dance, we danced
we danced, we danced.

And how could I have been so blind
You shared the sky with your love.

She’s your sun, you’re her moon, I’m the sea.
She’s your sun, you’re her moon, I’m the sea.

Yet you found me darkness,
You brought me back to the light
The clouds they parted, showing you,
shining, spreading all your light.
Your sun she shines brightly,
She brings the best out in you.
You reflect onto my deep blue see
You see.

Now I see the light, now I see the light, now I see the light
Now I see the light, now I see the light, now I see the light

She’s your sun, you’re her moon, I’m the sea.
She’s your sun, you’re her moon, I’m just the sea.

Since I’m the sea, I’ll never be, the sun you need to shine bright.
So I’ll find some land and embrace the sand
I’ll settle, I’ll settle for peace of mind.

When I am blue, I’ll look to you
to see what true love should be
Track Name: Lost Lullaby
Years gone by, I still don’t know if I should cry
I lost your pretty face.
You could not stay, I had to send you on your way
I never knew this price I’d pay.

Now I’m singing this lost lullaby
Whisper soft goodbye to a love I’d never met
and who knows the life you could have had
and the love we’d share until my final breath

and if I can’t tuck you in from here
I’ll raise my voice, raise my voice up to the air

Sing asleep, asleep, the moon is asleep
oh way up in the sky.
Sing asleep, asleep, the stars are asleep
and happily they sigh
Hear my lullaby.

Now I’m singing this lost lullaby
Whisper soft goodbyes to a love I’d never met
and who knows the life you could have had
and the love we’d share until my final breath

and if I can’t tuck you in from here
I’ll raise my voice, raise my voice up to the air

Sing asleep, asleep, the moon is asleep
oh way up in the sky.
Sing asleep, asleep, the stars are asleep
and happily they sigh
Hear my lullaby.
Track Name: To the Moon & Back Again
Times been passing away and I can’t seem to find you
let us go back to the days when I thought I could follow through
When we made out homes out of blankets and pillows
The world was our for the taking, making plans. 

Yes, young love scares us and dares us to care
and when we’re ready

Let us sit here making plans how we’re gonna run away and start a band
and how we’ll go on tour with strings and horns and rhythm section.
The arenas we play will ring
with the hearts of those who are willing to take time at all to appreciate
just how far we’ve come.
Let the record spin, to the moon & back again.

The sun she rises and falls
through the smiles and goodbyes
Oh yes kids these days don’t know how not to lie
So we stand alone against a crippling self doubt
the only thing we understand is this

Yes, music streaming from our hearts
and when we’re ready

Let us sit here making plans how we’re gonna run away and start a band
and how we’ll go on tour with strings and horns and rhythm section.
The arenas we play will ring
with the hearts of those who are willing to take time at all to appreciate
just how far we’ve come.

So we sat there making plans how we were gonna run away and start a band
and how we’ll go on tour with strings and horns and rhythm section.
But now the bars we play do ring
with the few of those who are willing to take time at all to appreciate
just how far we’ve come.
Let the record spin, to the moon & back again.
Track Name: Pizza Boxes & Dirty Laundry
Been down this road so many times,
could probably just do it blind
You say hello, how do you do
next thing I know I'm regretting you

And I, I oh how I lie
Just to feel, feel so alive
and the winds from the east, they have carried me all this time
they know where I must be, but for now just let me sleep

Oh the snow lies in rows
on the sidewalks of the city
and I watch the time slink past
like a movie, an endless movie
and I hope to no end that this darkness will pass me soon
and step aside for the springtime
for sunny days and fresh air

And now I, I oh how I lie
Just to feel, feel so alive
and the winds from the east, they have carried me all this time
they know where I must be, but for now just let me sleep

In the dark I am surrounded
by pizza boxes & dirty laundry
and the sound of my voice has become foreign to your ears
and maybe one day you'll hear this song, and know I never meant any harm

and now I, I oh how I lied,
just today, today to get by.
and the winds they cut deep as they pass me one more time
and you'll never ask me why
when I let you know that I'm fine

so I sing and I drink
Who else knows how this song even goes?
Track Name: Crave
Christmas last year
I never thought the sun would shine again
Winter blew through what I thought would be my very end
But then a smile, your laugh brought me from sadness
and something spurred in me

You make me crave adventure
demand it out of every day
The whole damn world seems brighter
when you send that smile my way
I know I’m gonna be okay

Most sensible people
they talk through how they’ve planned their lives on point
But sensible people always seem to disappoint
there were no profound discussions of our madness
We decided

It’s adventure time
let us drink, let us drink until we feel okay to fly
It’s adventure time
and we’ll dance in every country
shall we eat some more gelato
and enjoy this time we share

All those voices telling me
that there is a certain way to walk and talk and live
They’re just jealous cuz they know
that there is no better feeling then our little piece of freedom
There’s no stopping us now

You make me crave adventure
demand it out of every day
The whole damn world seems brighter
when you send that smile my way
I know I’m gonna be okay
I know I’m gonna be okay
I know I’m gonna be okay
and I’m gonna be okay, okay, okay,
I’m gonna be okay.
Track Name: Glass Menagerie
There was a time,
there was a time not so long ago
when we felt invincible
When we left our quiet hearts
on display inside the windows of glass menagerie.

There were lions,
they were proud and strong and brave
they always lead the way
to the clubs that laughed and played
who could never seem to
turn down all the noise they had to say

Oh oh oh, why’d you have to go
and just leave us here
to drown in our sorrows?
When you flew away
you broke the window pane.

Oh oh oh, why’d you have to go
and just leave us here
to drown in our sorrows?
When you flew away
you broke the window pane.
Track Name: Big Dipper
Is this real?
How could this happen?
How did we go from nothing and end up here?
As if we didn’t have enough. Who knew that it would be this rough?

Is this true or am I crazy?
Do you feel the same way that I do?
I know I shouldn’t say a thing.
So instead, I’ll sit alone and sing..

Now I’m here, waiting for you call, waiting for some kind of sign it’ll be okay.
But you’re not here, you’re where you should be.
You are happy, in love, just not with me.
Just not with me.

But maybe you are or maybe I’m dreaming
but I can’t help to see that twinkling in your eye, in your eye
You can’t hide, at least no, not from me.
Do you ever wonder what our lives could be?

We could be brave and we could go on adventures every day
Yes, with the world as our oyster, nothing could bring us down.
We could be every day heros, make every second count
and life could be just swell.

Now I’m here, waiting for you to call, waiting for some kind of sign it’ll be okay.
And you’re not here, you’re where you should be.
You are happy, in love, just not with me.
Just not with me.

My heart is full of love for you even though I know we can’t do this right now
Your heart isn’t mine to have.
Keep your eyes to the skies, look for that constellation
Promise me, you’ll spare a thought for me
and dip me slow.
Track Name: Clarity
Away, away from here
Where I don’t gasp for air
I know there is peace.

Past mountains, cliffs and fields
forgotten all our fears
and face adventure side by side

And though we’re not there just quite yet
We’ve tasted bliss and we cannot forget
And until we have enough to run again
We’ll do our time, ‘till we can

Find the highest lows there is to see
Swim rivers deep and find me the softest patch of grass on which to sleep
and we’ll dance in rain and bathe in waterfalls
I can’t recall the last time I could see
with clarity

And here I am today
just itching to get away
and chase that sunrise every morn.

Yet from the time we’re born
they urge us to conform
to work, find love, get married and die sans debt

But I don’t know if I can fit that code
it’s time to go and hit that open road
you know the world will still be there when we look back
so you’d better pack
cuz all I wanna do is

Find the highest lows there is to see
swim rivers deep and find me the softest patch of grass on which to sleep
and we’ll dance in rain and bathe in waterfalls
I can’t recall the last time I could see
with such clarity
Track Name: Space
Waking up, Tuesday morning and I think I am alright
and for four glorious seconds, all I’m feeling is the light
But the memories of last night they creep back slowly to my mind
and I fear I’ll be stuck forever in this time.

Where I smile and laugh and dance and sing and scream with open arms
and all you see when you talk to me is solely just my charm
but my heart it beats like thunder and I’m all kinds of distressed.
It’s time I sit and breath and take a little rest.

I need space to get my head clear
oh I know I can’t keep drinking to the bottom of this beer
I don’t recall getting to this state
They wanna make me numb anyways, I’ll self medicate
I will drink until I can’t remember that I don’t wanna be
Just another reckless, stupid somebody.

Waking up, Wednesday morning and I think I feel alright
and for ten glorious seconds all I’m feeling is the light
cuz I feel your heart beat next to mine and breathe in time, its true
I wonder if this time the guilt will get to you.

You need space to get your head clear
oh you know you can't keep drinking to the bottom of this beer
Do you recall getting to this state
Whats the use of losing consciousness and speeding heart rates
Please don’t drink until you can’t remember that you don’t wanna be
Just another empty, useless somebody.

Now I don’t lead by example, I’m fumbling blindly in the night
But now I think I’m heading in the right direction
so please don’t make the same mistakes that I, that I did.

We need space to get our heads clear
all the bottle really did was help us to deny our fears
that we won’t progress anymore
We will keep our heads held high and proud and face that open door
I know you have to fly so please, enjoy the mountains and the breeze
and take time to find your peace and clarity
See the sea, breathe deep
and get some well deserved, undisturbed sleep.

Today the wind she blows the raindrops off the trees from storms last night
and my eyes they chase the clouds now as they swirl along their flight
When they part the sun comes shining, falling brightly from above
Oh I might just start to feel a little love.
Track Name: A Little Less Blue
Today will be better
and I will work hard to make sure today will be better
cuz yesterday has come and past
and all I can strive for, I can work to is that today, I’ll be better

See how I don’t hope for the happy days and the sunny ways
cuz I’m getting sick of just sitting, waiting, wishing and wasting away
I’ve got my eyes on the prize and so should you
cuz the goal for every single day is just to feel a little less blue

Let me be honest
I’m not running anymore
and for the first time in 22 years,
I’m not afraid, not afraid, not afraid to be alone

and I don’t feel tied down anymore so I’ve got this urge to run and do
every single god damn thing
but I’m just getting started so its kind of strange
this feeling of confined freedom

I’ve got fire and I feel the burning in my chest
but I could just use a rest, take a breath, baby steps now
and now that its over, I’ll rise from the ashes once more.

So screw whatever they’re saying cuz they don’t understand
They’re all lies, they’re surprised and their lack of compromise is astounding
Its time to put my words into action
cuz nothing in life has ever been accomplished without passion
and if you stick to your ambition all your dreams they will come to fruition

Life will get better
just know you’ll have to work hard
and god knows you’ll go far
You’ll face all your demons
Keep lookin’ up,
You’ll get there just in time.
