Come with me to a small dark apartment illuminated only by the neon lights from the busy street below. Feel the apprehension of the lonely young lady who desperately wants to be a part of the party. Watch her overcome her demons by process of Illumination.



Scribbling self-portraits on a mirror in the dark.
Funny when you don’t know who you are.
I hear voices in the street – the lonely gets the best of me
Ignore my nervous heart and I put my Converse on.

Now I see, I’m not the only one
With a square peg reputation
Suddenly I know where I belong
See myself in these other faces, take a step and everything changes
By process of illumination

Letting go of secrets with these strangers at the bar
Feels like I have known them all along.
Maybe this is all the music of the alcohol,
But it turns out it’s not hard to just be who we are


I don’t wanna go, I don’t wanna leave
I just wanna stay here forever,
I don’t wanna go, I don’t wanna leave
I just wanna stay here together,
What if the bubble pops? What’ll happen when the music stops?
