Home is an urgent, yearning confessional about not belonging and trying to find your place in the world. The song stemmed from a discussion between my partner and I about how we can't change the past. It's an admission of my faults and mistakes I've made but saying, underneath it all, there's a good person trying their best. Even though we may view the world in different ways, we can work together to build a better future. We can find the way home!
"Calling Out My Name" was conceived in late summer of 2018. I was driving to my partner Lauren's place listening to the instrumental track "Far Away Trains Passing By" by Ulrich Schnauss. I started to hum a melody along to it and the words "calling out my name" fell out.
The Ulrich Schnauss track influenced the chord progression, whilst the lyrics were inspired by a dream I had about Lauren and I flying and thoughts I'd had meditating on how the gaps between physical objects are actually filled with frequencies, atoms, energy and light, so everything is fully connected.
The song is in essence about being in love with someone and being connected with that person even though you may not physically be with them and that something intangible is pulling you together.
