about

The Kindness of Strangers was recorded in Denver, Colorado in a dimly lit church corridor.

Songwriter Kyle Donovan worked closely with Boulder-based pianist and recording engineer Daniel Herman to record the album's six tracks. Sam Sherman plays drums, Owen Tharp plays the upright bass, and Nicholas Pappas sings harmony.

Blue-green jalousie windows faded into darkness as the sun set on an early autumn evening. Hoisting microphones high into rafters of the church, the musicians lit candles to escape the buzzing of fluorescent lights and sat in quiet reverence. Gradually, as they tuned instruments and practiced harmonies, they filled the church corridor with the echoes and intention of creation and The Kindness of Strangers came to life.

Track Name: Let it Be You
Let it Be You

All I want is to be gentle
All I want is to be kind
Tell you all the ways I love you
Give you all the love I find

And when the day is done with the setting sun
We’ll be drifting down the line
And the one I’m dreaming next to
Let it be you

All I want is to be honest
All I want is to be clear
Tell you everything I’m thinking
Show you all my deepest fears
And when the time has come with the setting sun
We’ll be drifting down the pier
And the one I’m dreaming next to
Let it be you

Let it be you
In the evening and the afternoon
When the birds are singing and the bells are ringing their tune

All I want is to be simple
All I want is to be free
Tell you all about my travels
Share the kindness that I’ve seen

And when the time has come with the setting sun
We’ll be drifting out to sea
And the one I’m dreaming next to
Let it be you

Let it be you, oh!
Let it be you, oh!
Let it be you
Track Name: California
Thinking of the way I used to brush your hair
We'd call each others' names from just above the stairs
Sweep the kitchen floor nearly every night
Stealing kisses 'cause the money's tight

And if you see me
Down in Georgia
Playing softly
For another girl
Oh if you see me
In California
Lead me back
Back into your world

Daily fantasizing out the window pane
Writing our own love songs was your favorite game
Laughing, smiling, feeling young again
Sweet dreams with you were just around the bend

And if you see me
Down in Georgia
Playing softly
For another girl
Oh if you see me
In California
Lead me back
Back into your world

Dreaming of the way I used to call your name
Knowing all along that we had felt the same
Looking through your eyes after a thousands stairs
Glad that I had chanced it, glad that I had dared

And if you see me
Down in Georgia
Playing softly
For another girl
Oh if you see me
In California
Lead me back
Back into your world
Track Name: Elizabeth
Elizabeth
Would you help me get back home?
It’s not that I
Can’t do it on my own
But I’d rather have your hand than walking all alone

Elizabeth
Remind me how you care
I know you do
But hearing it from you
Means the world to me
So tell me
Tell me truly please

Do you love me the way that you used to?
Do you still think of me the way I think of you?

Elizabeth
Please be gentle this time
Don’t build me up
And tear me down
Don’t steal my peace of mind
Just tell me straight
And we’ll be fine this time

Do you love me the way that you used to?
Do you still think of me the way I think of you?
Do you love me the way that you used to?
Do you still think of me the way I think of you?

Elizabeth
Would you help me find my way
It’s not that I
Can’t do it on my own
But I’d rather have you
Have you stay
Track Name: My Heart
You can have the stage and spotlight in my dreams
Every morning 'fore I wake
You can have those quiet moments in the dark
But you can't have my heart

You can have the butterflies inside my chest
And the glimmer in my eyes
Baby, you can tear my sanity apart
But you can't have my heart
Track Name: The Score
So confess, I know it's true
All that time you said you'd lose
With me, believing every word you heard

I confess, I knew it too.
All that sorrow left inside your mind
And not a single thing to do

So if you find yourself
Finding time to spend with me
I do believe you should

Come away with me into the mountains
Come away into the blue
Lay me down in fields of grass
Feel my pulse and just relax
Lay me down right next to you

Now I guess I'll sing the blues
Half a bed that's left to use
And never knowing whose is whose to lose

So if you find yourself
Finding time to spend with me
I do believe you should

Come away with me into the mountains
Come away into the blue
Lay me down in fields of grass
Feel my pulse and just relax
Lay me down right next to you

Come away with me into the mountains
Come away into the blue
Lay me down in fields of grass
Feel my pulse and just relax
Lay me down right next to you

Well I've been there once before
And I can tell you that the score
Doesn't come out even
But it comes out right
Track Name: Daylight to Spare
I've got love on my side
I've got time to preside
Over heaven and earth and the dirt
I've got green fields and air
I've got daylight to spare
I've got love on my side and I'm sure

Slow it down
Take a deep breath
Hear my heart
Beating inside my chest

When you wake in the morn'
Take your time, keep me warm
Rest your eyes for a few minutes more

I've got love on my side
I've got time to preside
Over heaven and earth and the dirt
I've got green fields and air
I've got daylight to spare
I've got love on my side and I'm sure

Sound asleep
Lay your head down
Not a peep
Can't you tell
I'll be 'round

When you drift off at night and I'm holding you tight
One last glimpse 'til I turn off the light

I've got love on my side
I've got time to preside
Over heaven and earth and the dirt
I've got green fields and air
I've got daylight to spare
I've got love on my side and I'm sure

I've got love on my side
I've got time to preside
Over heaven and earth and the dirt
I've got green fields and air
I've got daylight to spare
I've got love on my side and I'm sure
