I feel like i’m cheating on you When I kiss another woman She tastes different than you did Just trying to move on She feels like hope But you feel like home I keep a clean and tidy home Like we used to do You taught me how to live alone It’s almost like you knew It feels like hope But you feel like home It feels like hope But you feel like home The dreams I’ve reached had stepping stones Which you helped to build You never found a path of your own Some day I hope you will It feels like hope But you feel like home It feels like hope But you feel like home All the the things we planned to see I never thought that we would be In this city in the summer without one another You’ll always have a piece of me And somehow nothing’s missing I’ve started working on myself Booked a cabin for the week You always said that would be good for my health I guess we’ll see It feels like hope When you feel like home This feels like hope Even when you feel like home

They read my tweet on the radio today Some well placed words can get you a long way Ever since I left you I have been unsure where I stand in the world Used to be that your words were the only true words I needed to hear Now I’m searching for some validating words from anyone People change but I’m the same Insecure self assured I am strong I am weak I hope you’re doing fine without me I went on a hike with our dog today We seem to be doing ok All our family walks around the block Life was simple then even when it was not Now I have a new place that I’ve made my own Putting up the artwork makes it feel like a home It’s not that I don’t miss you I do But I’m settling into me I hope you’re settling into you People change but I’m the same Insecure self assured I am strong I am weak I hope you’re doing fine without me We were a rock with cracks in the core Splintering out hoping for more How can love so true crumble into just pieces People change but I’m the same Insecure self assured Simple man with complex plans Unrefined neatly tied Upside down on solid ground I stand tall as I fall I am strong I am weak I am strong I am weak I hope you’re doing fine without me

Drifting 04:12
Coming home falling on the floor Breathing is harder than before Let the time pass by Pass by Standing in the shower till it went cold Linger at the party till they all went home Let the time pass by Pass by Would it help Would it bring some peace to know I’m hurting too Try to feel Try to see it your way But it’s just not getting through Drifting until slumber takes a hold Slowly the mornings aren’t as cold

Birthday 04:17
I got my tarot read From a friend crossed legged sitting on her bed She told me things are looking up But there’s one small block That could fuck it all up She told me I won’t grow If I don’t let you go I got a win today You would make us celebrate If you were still around I have never been Much for little wins But you made me appreciate em all Big and small Happy birthday All I want to do is celebrate Happy birthday I hope you’re not alone A year ago We drove up the coast To Santa Barbara We joined a winery To fool ourselves and play make believe It was easier then to just pretend But once again… And the love hangs around me like a scar on my thumb Every day it fades a little more but it’s a part of me now When I look down you’re around I’m doing fine these days I’m even starting to date It’s exciting I could see myself Loving someone else I wonder if you feel the same way And that you’re ok Happy birthday Happy birthday Happy birthday I hope you're not alone

Guard 05:43
On our very first date We dressed up like rockers from the 80s went to an awful interactive play took a walk up my street I took your picture with a palm tree you took my hand as we talked about our dreams I guess you were playing pretend While I was jumping in I let my guard down gave you my heart let you in and we took a chance on a brand new start I let my guard down gave you my trust I just wish we could’ve known it wouldn’t be enough We talked for hours every night When we went out to a party you were the one bringing it to life I became your biggest fan i could see your vision, all that you believed in we started making plans I guess you were playing pretend While I was jumping in I let my guard down gave you my heart let you in and we took a chance on a brand new start I let my guard down gave you my trust I just wish we could’ve known it wouldn’t be enough You spent the night Giving me love looking into my eyes I misread your signs I thought we were starting up while you were shutting (down) I let my guard down gave you my heart let you in and we took a chance on a brand new start I let my guard down gave you my trust I just wish we could’ve known it wouldn’t be enough I just wish we could’ve known it wouldn’t be enough

You are the first to say Don’t cross the line with a friend It never works out in the end So we commiserate about our recent dates Neither of us are good At saying the things we should If I lean in close Will you meet me half way Will you meet me half way If I make a move Will it be our new start Or will we break apart You’re in a job you hate But every week we’re making plans You’re better than this circumstance You’ve had a shitty year But soon you’ll be a star You need to be exactly where you are If I lean in close Will you meet me half way Will you meet me half way If I make a move Will it be our new start Or will we break apart You’ve seen me at my worst And you have stuck around You’re not like the others in this town You’re now on your way Maybe we should just wait It’s been a year what’s another day Will you meet me half way Will you meet me half way Will you meet me half way I’ve been in love I’ve been in love But something wasn’t right I put in the time Maybe it all lead me to you I fell in love I fell in love But the timing wasn't right I gave it a try Maybe it all lead me to you I’ve been in love I’ve been in love But something wasn’t right I put in the time Maybe it all lead me to you I fell in love I fell in love But the timing wasn't right I gave it a try Maybe it all lead me to you Will you meet me half way Maybe it all lead me to you Will you meet me half way Maybe it all lead me to you

about

Ari Herstand Los Angeles, California

Ari Herstand’s most recent offering, Like Home, explores the idea of what home means. And where to find it when the concept has been shattered. In a period when so many have been confined to their homes, this is an exploration that couldn’t be more worthy of the times. ... more
