'Fade Away' was inspired by a solo trip to the North Woods where Kristen shacked up with nothing but the crooked trees of the dark forest for company. Away from her hectic life and family demands, she was able to et her guard down and embrace her imperfections. 'Fade Away' serves as a reminder that sometimes we all need to stop and take care of ourselves, and that a little self acceptance can go a long way.


At the end of the road, I found solace in the woods.
In a little cabin tucked out of the way.
With its crooked floors and crooked walls I think I found the place,
Where I can finally shed the armour for the day.

And let it fade away.

In the cracked paint of the wooden chair left weathered on the lawn.
I see years of laughter. Years of smiles long gone.
In the driftwood railing I see days spent splashing ‘round the Bay.
Collecting memories of yesterday.

Let it fade away.
Let it fade away.

In the comfort of your absence I sing easily.
With the lonely red rocking chair by the creek.
The painted rocks tell stories of others come and gone.
Only the mourning doves know their secret song.

Let it fade away.
Let it fade away.

In the setting of the sun the sparkle fades before my eyes.
And shadows cling to corners, come the night.
And all that I can think of is the trouble I caused you.
It left you feeling so lonely and blue.

Let it fade away. 8x
