about

My wife was in Korea visiting her family and I missed her terribly. I decided to write her a song and have the demo finished within 12 hours. I did it! And she loved it. The production of the final version has gone through many stages but inspired by the likes of Tame Impala, John Lennon and Harry Styles, we ended up here;)

The recent uptick and awareness on Asian Hate is personally felt. Police is investigating a shooting outside my wife's workplace, a lot of Asian/ Americans working there.

I wanted to express my feeling about my muse, my best friend, my lover and my everything. Also I want to help raise awareness to a very real thing felt by so many americans every day!

lyrics

BLACK EYED GIRL

Tell me
Why does it suddenly feel so free and witty
Why does it feel so right when you are with me
I have not cried for days
Why should I cry?

Show me
Ah, do it, do it, do it
Come and show me
How you make me want you to own me
Cause I am but half the space
I am but half...

Without you I am darkened sky searching my yellow sun
With you I got something but without you I got none

My black eyed girl - Come and let me see you
My black eyed girl - Come and let me feel you
You rule my world

How to 
Understand this feeling that I’ve always known you
Underneath it all something has shown you
How it all seems too rhyme
How it all rhymes

Without I am darkened sky searching my yellow sun
With you I got something but without you I got none

My black eyed girl - Come and let me see you
My black eyed girl - Come and let me feel you
You rule my world

Ben Lorentzen New Jersey

This is My American Revolution. Smitten by sound, haunted by words, I don't believe in guns or violence, but I believe in the revolving human heart, expressed in songs. Some will call this pop noir, some will call it red wine music. I met you here to tell you this. ... more
