about

Waves & Webs is the first full-length solo release by Glenn Davis since co-founding the Columbus band, Way Yes. The album exposes a simpler and softer side, dealing with loss and the complexity of relationships. Vulnerable in content, the arrangements are simple & forthright with a sound that intelligently transforms from Folk into RnB while weaving a pop sensibility throughout each track. The songs on Waves & Webs were written after Davis's marriage began to unravel in 2013. Describing it as a period when he felt powerless to change anything, he turned to his version of comfort music: Fleetwood Mac, ELO, Joan Armatrading, Van Morrison, and Arthur Russell. The resultant songs were equally inspired by his own relationship discord and the music that was helping him heal. The album was self-recorded in basements, bedrooms, and attics throughout Columbus over the following months.

Track Name: Off The Line
It may take me just as long to forgive you
As it took us to make what you just took away

Don't get me wrong
I understand where you're coming from
But that don't mean
Don't mean that I agree

Don't get me wrong
I understand where you're coming from
But you can say, say what you came to say

Say, say what you came to say
Say, say what you will

It may require some time for this all to heal
If you leave it where you left it things may never change

Don't get me wrong
I understand where you're coming from
but that don't mean
don't mean that i agree

Don't get me wrong
I understand where you're, coming from
But you can do what you wanna do

You can do what you want
I will cut you off the line

It may take me twice as long to forget you
As it took us to make what you just took away

You can do what you want
I will cut you off the line
You can do what you want
I will cut you off the line
Track Name: Super Tough
Can we look around?
Can we hold on to what we used to have?
Can we hide away? Can we hide away?

I'd be okay never leaving
Never getting close enough to get hurt again

I know you know me well
You know me well
Help me to break the spell
I know you know me well
Enough to help me through this stuff
To make me super tough
So super tough

Can we look around?
Can we hold on to what we used to know?
Do we have to go? Do we really have to go?

I know you
Track Name: Be Honest
Be honest but only if it's something that I wanna hear
Be honest but only if there's nothing that I need to fear

I’m bent on getting back together
I know your favorite restaurants
I’m fine with almost any weather
As long as I’m the one you want

Oh, can you carry me?
‘Cause I might weigh you down
And when you married me
That meant you'd be around

Please stop you're scaring me
I know you're feeling down
But when you married me
That meant you'd stay around
Track Name: Come Back
Please come back, please don't go
You know things about about me that nobody knows
So I'm begging you please come back

You seem so distant now, you're starting to slip away
I spend most of my time trying to figure out what I'm supposed to say

You know I've noticed you don't treat me the same
I 'm still struggling trying to figure out when it is you changed
Track Name: Smile & Cruise
How we gonna get closer if you're always so far away?
Are you gonna run around? Cause everyone else is running around
I didn't even wanna know that and I didn't even wanna go
But I'd try and make all better for the sake of you
Yeah I'd try and make it all better for you

There are things we've been through that make me smile
There are things we've been through that bring me down, down

We could look around for hours
We could joke like nothing's wrong
We could smile & cruise, admire views
Or we could let love heal
We could let love heal

How are we gonna mend things if we're always creating wounds?
Are you gonna hide away? ‘Cause everyone else is hiding away
I didn't even wanna talk about it & I didn't even wanna show
But I'd try and make all better for the sake of you
Yeah I'd try and make it all better for you

There are things we've been through that make me smile
There are things we've been through that bring me down
There are waves of other lovers
There are webs of other friends
They're so quick to forget good deeds
And they're holding onto sins
Track Name: Tipping Point
I've been scrambling around for a while
I been scrambling around
While you been something
While you been something too

I hope that we reach the tipping point

You been out of your mind
If you think I'm going anywhere
If you think I'm going anywhere- you're wrong
Track Name: Say Something
Oh, say something, be real
Say whatever it is that you feel
I feel alone, I can't heal
You should just speak your mind
I wanna get inside

Of your will, of your plans
Send me to new Mexico to make friends
Or keep me here, I don't care
I just wanna know that you’re near

I'm willing to get down on my knees
What can I do to make you see you belong with me?

I remember what you said
your voice is stuck in my head
I need to know you’re not dead
So get in touch don't think I'm asking much

Just some direction in my life
And some protection from my mind
I wanna keep all my beliefs
And not wear em all on my sleeves

I'm willing to get down on my knees
What can i do to make you see you belong with me?

I'm willing to give up everything
Just tell what it is you need, I'm willing to bleed

Oh, say something, be real
Say whatever it is that you feel
I feel alone, I can't heal
I'm just trying to make to tomorrow
Track Name: Speed It Up
If you wanna step away speed it up then
I don't wanna have to be bogged down worried about things like that
If you wanna step away speed it up then
I don't wanna have to be bogged down in your apathy

There are two ways all of this could go
Both end with both of us alone

I could change & you’d just stay the same
Either way we wind up dead
Track Name: Run Your Course
I'm so sorry things have been so disappointing for you with me

I know that I let you down sometimes
But know that I want you to stay mine

I’ma let you run your course
I’ma live with no remorse
I’ma keep you on my mind
Hope that love will heal with time
I’ma let you run your course

I'm so happy that I know you even though you seem so down

I know that I messed it up this time
But know that I'm trying to make things right
Track Name: How They Used To Be
You’ve been wondering around
And I’ve been feeling let down

Is it so wrong that I want things to be how they used to be?

And I know that people, they change
But you been acting so strange

Is it possible that you never loved me at all?
Track Name: Every Song
Every song
To me every song is a slow song

Every song
Could be slowed down a little more
Could be sadder with a minor chord

Every song
To me every song is a love song

But when it comes to love everything is tougher then
When it comes to love you're wrong
When it comes to love everything is tougher then
You got it stuck on the tip of your tongue

And it's easy to say I miss you
And it's easy to say I’m wrong
And it's easy to say everything will be okay
And it's easy to sing along, to every song

I believe we're coming to an end
I believe we're coming to an end
We don't even have to stay friends
I believe we're coming to an end

I don't even mean to be mean
I don't even mean to be mean
I apologize for how I sing
But I don't even mean to be me

I believe we're coming to an end
I believe we're coming to an end
I don't even mean to be mean
And we don't even have to stay friends
But I believe we're coming to an end

I don't even mean to be mean
I apologize for how I sing every song
Track Name: If There Really Is A God
If there really is a God
You should know that she loves you
You should know she’s above you
And God is not your mom
You can do no wrong, once she’s righted you
You can do no wrong


If there really is a God
You should know that she loves you
You should know she’s above you
And she is smiling now
And you can’t let her down
