about

This album cost me $20,000 to make and would've been $50,000 had I not been independent and the people I worked with given me discounts for that. I'm extremely proud of this album the way it all turned out with the songs all being a part of a bigger message in that many things are left unsaid that maybe shouldn't sometimes - like the words of affirmation, love, trust, respect and appreciation. Enjoy it - it made me giddy making it! :)

Track Name: This Is The Soundtrack
You’re the stolen song
I stumbled upon
Two months and three days ago
Might not seem like long

It’s funny what you find
When you’re not even looking
It was right between the lines
And something came over me
Over you, over us

There’s nothing to describe
The way that I felt that night
The rush to my head and
The waves full of color
Like a sunrise in summer
Made of violets and reds
I lost all consciousness of what I said

This is the soundtrack, to our conversations
You’re the laughter, in my smile
And I just wrote you, an empty love song
If I don’t have you, and can’t get you back
Can’t get you back

Fast forward to right now
I somehow lost your hand
In a crowd full of nobodies
Not exactly how I planned

Doesn’t matter how it starts
It’s only how it ends
But everything in between
Make me know that there’s still a chance

This is the soundtrack, to our conversations
You’re the laughter, in my smile
And I just wrote you, an empty love song
If I don’t have you, and can’t get you back
Can’t get you back

Can’t get you back oh,
I’ll sing along with our song
Cause I feel you still you near
Hoping this can bring you home
Bring you home, bring you home

I just wrote you an empty love song if I don’t have you…

Chorus

It’s funny what you find
When you’re not even looking
It was right between the lines…
Track Name: You Make Me OK
You always find a way to make things cool
It seems I was born awkward like an unused garage tool
And you make me ok, you make me ok
And you make me ok, you make me ok

You’re like the clutch between me and the world
They spin at different speeds and you somehow you make it work
And you make me ok, you make me ok
And you make me ok, you make me ok

My friends used to laugh at my expense
And my feelings always seemed to pay
But somehow when you poke at me, you find another way
To make a half smile escape from my face
Wow, wow, wow
Wow, wow, wow….

Like a Swiss watch
You’re timing is perfect
You must be telepathic cause you know when I’m thinking of you
And you work it, and you work it – and you work it

My friends used to laugh at my expense
And my feelings always seemed to pay
But somehow when you poke at me, you find another way
To make a half smile escape from my face
I’m serious but I can’t stay tense with you smiling at me in this room
There’s nothing that I can do but let this flower that we’ve planted bloom
And you make me ok, you make me ok
You make me ok, you make me ok

You always find a way to make things cool…

Wow, wow, wow
Wow, wow, wow
Wow, wow, wow
You make me ok you make me ok
Track Name: Thing Called Love
If it’s all I got now
In this great big city
Its worth a million pennies
Luckily found by me
I may not always call you
When I say I will but I,
Throw in random surprises to make up for the doubt that I know that you feel

I show up at your door
A half an hour late
I made you mad cause I
Made you wait but there’s

Light at the end of the tunnel
Blue in this clouded sky
Rain for this thirsty desert waiting for the wind to pull through and
I know that I am changing and
You should by now feel it too cause
We can’t explain why were caught in thing called love
This thing called love, this thing called love

Holding on to the though that
We can walk on water
I wake up late writing letters
That seem to be writing themselves
I slide my life in your hands
Cause everyday I feel safer
Whenever I’m caught in your bad books I know there’s a chance cause I know that you care

I gave you advice again
Opened my big wide mouth
I just wasn’t listening
So you threw me out but there’s

Light at the end of the tunnel
Blue in this clouded sky
Rain for this thirsty desert waiting for the wind to pull through and
I know that I am changing and
You should by now feel it too cause
We can’t explain why were caught in thing called love
This thing called love, this thing called love
Thing called love……

I show up at your door
A dozen roses in hand
I gotta make up for all my
Broken plans – cause yes you know there’s
Track Name: Hurts So Hard
Barely holding on
To something you just don’t have
You shoot up a flare cause you need attention
Ok I’ll hear you out
I’ll let you win so we can move on now
I’m trying to fix something that seems to be always broken

I’m standing on a string
Stretched across a canyon wide
I’m balancing on your faith to take me through this ride
Take me through this
Through this ride
Just get me through this…. ride
oooh

The lights are on but everything’s wrong
You can’t seem to see through your jealousy
Eyes all around me I thought love was supposed to be blind
Take our love and paint it black
That’s how it feels when you jump on my back
So busy reaching
You kill this heart when you attack

And its hurts so hard
Hurts me so hard
And it hurts, and it hurts
Hurts me so hard oh

I wanna say it to you now
I wanna say it to you when
There are moments that are awkward to begin
You need to understand that
My love is not a command and
It only squeezes me through your hands
Through your tight fisted hands
Through your hands oooh

I’m a man that loves you now
I’m a man that wants you bad
But you’re makin it difficult for me to give what I got
I’ve got enough to give you more
I’ve got enough to make you right
Open up your hands so I can put all I have in yours

All I have is yours
All I have is yours
It’s yours
It’s always yours
And it hurts, and it hurts me
And it hurts, and it hurts me so hard
And it hurts, and hurts me
And it hurts, and it hurts me so hard
Track Name: I've Been Hiding
There’s something that’s on my mind
It’s kinda wearing me down
I’ve burned and abused my time
How many days have I left out…

I know that you’re out there
But I’m closing my eyes
I’m softening my heart
And taking off this disguise

I hope you can see me…..
In the starlight….
I’m just past the hillside….
A little more to the right, oh

Everything all that I have
It’s already in you
You already own me, you have me
All that you need is to find me
I’m right here hiding - shhhhh please don’t tell anybody
I’ve been hiding…..

Honestly, hopefully, maybe I’ll open my eyes
And not be scared to see
Through the bright lights
I’ll listen for your song cause, cause, cause

I hope you can see me…..
In the starlight….
I’m just past the hillside….
A little more to the right, oh, oh, oh

Everything all that I have
Its already in you
You already own me, you have me
All that you need is to find me
Cause I’m right here hiding - shhhhh please don’t tell anybody
Please don’t tell anybody
Please don’t tell anybody
I’ve been hiding
I’ve been hiding
I’ve been hiding
Hiding…..
Track Name: I Want To Fall
I’m a redwood standing so tall
I’ve been strong by myself for so long
Withstood the heavy rains through the spring and fall

Scars in shapes of hearts carved by others
Branches cut to make room for lovers
It’s been a hundred years and more
But I’m still standing….

I want to fall
I want to fall
In luh luh looove
In luh luh looove

I’m the moon hangin with the stars
Wish one would collide into me like two cars
Need a comet to take me out and shake my feet
Cause I’m still standing…

I can see so clearly
For once all I want is to be blind
All I want is to go crazy
I just wanna lose my mind

I want to fall
I want to fall
In luh luh looove
In luh luh looove
Break down the walls and fall in love

I I just wanna freefall
I I I I I
I don’t wanna think clearly
I just wanna lose track of time

I want to fall
In luh luh looove
In luh luh looove
I want to fall
Break down the walls and fall in love
Track Name: London Is Calling
London is calling, calling
Your name
And out of the fog it plays a game
Some days I lose
The city I’m from
Its just a town compared to this place

London is calling, calling
Your name
Whispers through shadows
And through its fame
And anonymity hides people and souls as a transient population flows onto the west side of town
And you just survive, sometimes
You barely survive

London can’t hear me cry as I’m talking back
Swallowed by the sky
My voice starts to crack
I lost my place and found it here
I left my home and made it here
Dug up my life and sewed the seeds to make a living here
And I just survive, sometimes
I barely survive

Its hard to wake up when it’s a cold day
There’s someone waiting to take my place
Steal my air supply in the elevator and subways
No privacy but alone being watched all day

And I just survive, sometimes
I barely survive…..
Track Name: Right From The Start
I won’t ever ever let go…of this
It’s the hand that holds my will
This will never ever leave me
As long as time stands still

Words that I will always stand on
Bricks and mortar hold me high
Heavy thoughts held in your shoulders
Were released when you would cry

And I was always listening
For sounds coming from your heart
From the start
And you were always singing
The songs that we all forgot
From the start

Take a different sized opinion
Paint it shiny and bright
Photograph it in color
And you got just what you need right

And I was always listening
For sounds coming from your heart
From the start
And you were always singing
The songs that we all forgot
From the start

Right from the start
Right from the start
Right from the start
Right from the start

And you were always listening
For sounds coming from your heart
From the start
And you were always singing
The songs that we all forgot
From the start
And I was always listening
For sounds coming from my heart
From the start
And you were always singing
The songs that we all forgot
From the start

Right from the start
Right from the start
Right from the start
Track Name: I Will Guess You
Well I’ve run out of time
And I’m in no rush
And it seems there’s a chance
I won’t be alone
There’s a key in you
And a road that can lead me too
But I can never, never seem to go
You said the miles and the miles were the same
They add up to nothing but they made you feel pain and you
Only you
You know the riddle - the rhyme in the game
But refuse to reveal the color or the name in you
In only you
So I will guess you
I will guess you …and its ok
And I
Owe - owe you faith
Cause I,
Always believed that you could – that you could do
All the, pictures you make
From all the, patterns you break
In all the sun you create
Across the blue and white sky – you and I made
I hear that part of your heart that cries and I know you can find it before it dies – it’s for me – only me
Your tears are so heavy and they flood all the roads and you’ve lost all control and you won’t say so….oh, oh even when you know
You won’t say so….
So I will guess you
I will guess you
I will guess you
You were the song that I couldn’t seem to sing
I just couldn’t find the notes or the chords that would ring to me… and only me
I’m finding my way through the darkness in the night
I’m following the warmth from the candles that you light for me and only me
And I will guess you
I will guess you
I will guess you
I will guess you
I will guess you
I will guess you
I will guess you….
Track Name: Finally Feeling
I can tell from all your smiling
Those notes you’re hiding are ringing through clear
Your words are falling into my dreams
So sweet the birds have followed me here
Cause I…

I’ve started to listen
I’m finally feeling with my heart
The tips of my fingers
Are bringing me back to every part
I want you to notice
I want you to know that you are this
The part that is glowing
The part that my body seems to miss

I love hearing stories when you’re in the clouds
I’m out in the open let the stars rain down
The sun is so far but it’s all around and I, I,
I don’t wanna let you down

I’m starting to listen
I’m finally feeling with my heart
The tips of my fingers
Are bringing me back to every part
I want you to notice
I want you to know that you are this
The part that is glowing
The part that my body seems to miss

I don’t wanna let you down
I don’t wanna let you down….

I’m starting to listen
I’m finally feeling with my heart
The tips of my fingers
Are bringing me back to every part
I want you to notice
I want you to know that you are this
The part that is glowing
The part that my body seems to miss
Track Name: It Might Come True
Close your eyes
Lay back your head
Let yourself fall to a different world instead
Dance with the girl
Build with the boy
Play in the sand all the world is your toy
Oh, oh, you will find that nothing matters this time
In dreams you believe

Staring at the
Star filled sky you’re
Tracing the patterns with your eyes
They feel so close
Every last one
Tomorrow will bring what today has undone
Oh, oh, you will see the sun come into your dreams
You believe and you see

Fill your glass with songs that last
Unfold your thoughts and let them blossom in autumn
Butterflies are following me
Nothing can hide the smiles over me

Fall to me
Hide in my arms
The warmth of your heart makes us fly to the stars
Hold your breath and
Look down slow
We’re flying above all the people below
Hope and pray
You will dream a song that sings like spring
If you dream, dream out loud
It might come true
It might come true
It might come true
Track Name: Nothing Left To Prove
Pieces of my heart
Held within your hands
Makes me feel
Like I am whole again
Take your time with me
I tend to fall too fast
And every time I break there’s always less of me than before
Than before

So many pieces to pick up
So much I’ve left behind
It seems you’re rebuilding what’s missing
You do it every time
I’ve slipped through so many fingers
Been dropped so many times
It seems you’ve got me feeling like
I might never die
Cause every time I’m held by you
You leave with nothing left to prove, to prove
Oh, oh, oh, uh, uh, uh, uh

Something in your heart
Heals me inside out
Your skin touching mine feels like a thousand stars dancing on my spine
Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaving me
With your touch, with your words, with those looks you give when you are wanting love
Wanting love

So many pieces to pick up
So much I’ve left behind
It seems you’re rebuilding what’s missing
You do it every time
I’ve slipped through so many fingers
Been dropped so many times
It seems you’ve got me feeling like
I might never die
And every time I’m held by you
You leave with nothing left to prove, to prove
Oh, oh, oh, uh, uh, uh, uh
