    It's more of a long EP than an album. The songs were assembled and recorded quickly on a four track recorder so they could be put on the internet for the ear of the general public as a first set of recordings. Hence the name "First Tapes For The Internet." It came out in 2010.

Track Name: Song For Dianne
Dear Dianne,

Since you left down, a few things have changed
it snowed three times here, I hear it snows in Maine
I got a new sweatshirt, I wear it a lot
it's a track jacket from the track team I'm on
now that I can drive I want to buy a Ford Bronco
I don't have cash now so I'll try and borrow it
I still don't drink and I still go to church and
I can't read analogue clocks or cursive

and all I want to do is write letters to you
and hope they don't get lost in the mail
Dianne, I wrote this song for you but I wanted to sing it in person
but you're a million miles away from here so I'll sing into this microphone
waiting on you to get back home sometime

The cracks in the sidewalk collect all the rain
sentiment can melt and pour right down the drain
but I wouldn't forget all the cool things we did
and though you can't hear me up there where you live
I only want to say that you're not missing much
my heart feels black and it's cold to the touch
write back when you get a chance because I'd love
to hear what you're up to and if you've heard of the fact that

All I want to do is write music for you and hope you can hear it some day
Dianne, I wrote this song for you but I wanted to sing it together
but you're a million miles away from here so I'll sing into this microphone
waiting on you to get back home

And since you've left the state, I've been in one of my own, drinking a smoothie out of an icecream cone. My parents are still together. My dog is still alive, so I cannot complain. I just hope that you're alright.

(Chorus)

Dianne, I wrote this song for you but I wanted to sing it together. But you're a million miles away from here so I'll sing into this microphone
waiting on you to get back home sometime.

Love,

Will
