about

'Yearn', the lead single off "Heart Strung Out", is one of the simplest tunes on the debut album, and is also the most heartfelt and optimistic. It is about being in love with someone who you so strongly believe is your destiny and future, to the point where you have such faith that they will return to you when the time is right. Is this a song about true love? Maybe, maybe not. But it certainly is about as honest and sincere a longing for it (true love) as there can be, whether grounded in reality or not.

lyrics

Yearn

My carefree heart has never known what yearning was
until the day that I met you
that fateful Tuesday afternoon.
I could've sworn that I knew what you were thinking,
another girl to pass away the daily cares,
but that I simply wasn't,
and then you became scared:

"What is she trying to get at,
when all I want is to be free?
I'm a man who makes his own way in this world,
something from nothing is all I care to be."

Six brooding months along, without a word or warning,
he's come back in the flesh, swift with his feet,
but I could sense he was still running,
and not just from me.

What I am trying to get at
is that what I want is to be free.
I know I could never truly own you,
just love you, always, as is.
In this life where someone always wants piece out of you,
let me love you, for nothing, as is.

Still, he would run, fast for the horizon,
but I know when he's ready, he'll return,
still I've got nothing left to do here
but to yearn.

I know I could never truly own you,
just love you, always, as is.
In this life where someone always wants piece out of you,
let me love you, for nothing, as is.
