This is my first studio quality professionally recorded EP, and I'm so glad that I can finally share it with all of you. A lot of time, money, and effort has gone into these four tracks, and I'm thrilled with how they turned out. Hopefully you will be too!

I recorded up in Cleveland Heights with Dave Douglas (former drummer of Relient K, current Attack Cat). All of these songs have such a personal meaning behind them, and it's a privilege to finally be able to share them.

Kaylene Widdoes Hudson, Ohio

Hailing from Hudson, Ohio, Kaylene Widdoes recently recorded and released her first professional studio EP, "Blue Turns Gold". With a voice that has repeatedly been likened to Hayley Williams and Taylor Swift, and a style that revels a soft Jack's Mannequin and The Fray, Widdoes delivers vulnerable pop ballads with honest and relatable lyrics. ... more

Track Name: Game We Play
Verse 1:
You had such a great facade
Up until you got caught
This is not what I had planned
If I had known what I would lose
That every inch of me would be bruised
I would never have even thought

This could be x2

You see right through me
And all the lies I try to tell
And I see right through you too
You're playing me and I'm playing you
And you're sick of me and I'm sick of you
So let's just stop pretending
That it's just a game that we play

Verse 2:
And I was speaking things unsaid
First thoughts that came to my head
This is not what I had planned
And I said sorry once or twice
But then I took my own advice
I walked out and never looked back

And I cannot breathe without you
(I cannot breathe)
And I cannot sleep without you
(I cannot sleep)
Track Name: Broken
Verse 1:
Alone, I stand
Trying to calm my quickly beating heart
And here, I am
Trying to understand why you've been set apart

The sun goes down to hide its face
The moon goes down to cast darkness on this place

And no
Don't tell me you're sorry when you're not
Oh this life that you're living is tearing us apart
And oh-oh-oh I know
That you're not as broken
As somebody else

A hope I lack
Taking me back to a time when I was free
And I'll pass on everyone
Who says that they know just how to be

I'll turn around
I'll find the happiness you doubt
This world won't hold me down

We'll turn around
We'll find the happiness you doubt
This world won't hold us down
Track Name: Hush Hush Goodnight
Verse 1:
Steal this string out of my hand and tie a bow
Take this bottle from my mouth and build a ship

Pre-chorus 1:
No, don't let me go
No, don't let the gun he has empty its clip

I'm alright, I'm alright
No, I won't fall
If it's what you need, I'll give it my all
I'm alright, but I can be weak for a night
And I'm fine, I'm fine
If it's what I say
Please don't judge me, just go away
I'm fine, I'm alright, I'm okay, I'm alright
I just need some time
And hush hush goodnight
Don't let him say goodbye

Verse 2:
Keep this car from driving straight through this red light
Take this match from my hand, prevent a strike

Pre-Chorus 2:
No, don't let me go
No, don't let me jump, there's no such thing as flight

And every method you try
And every bullet you bite
Every knot that you tie, every weapon you buy
Is a siren's call
To the other side, to the other side x2

Ending lines:
And hush hush goodnight
I'll see you on the other side
Track Name: Four Years
Verse 1:
Dear friends,
How'd we get this lost?
Dear love,
We both knew the cost
Of growing up and leaving this place in pieces

It's just four years and then we're gone
Chasing the future 'cause the past is all wrong
Our hopes and dreams on our fingertips
Never thought we'd get to this

Verse 2:
Dear God,
I'm praying for life
Dear family,
I hope I've done you right
But I ain't a fool
I know that we'll change
But where we come from will stay the same
Stay the same

Goodbye, goodbye
I hope to see you again
Goodbye, goodbye
This can't be the end
(Hold on)
I'll find you somewhere out there
(Hold on)
I'll find you
