Story

An interesting footnote: I sang this with Ari Hest and James Maddock. Oddly, none of us were in the studio at the same... that's rock and roll.

Lyrics

ALL THE WAY C'mon girl I know you're tired of this cruel world uninspired and wishin' that you had never given it a chance c'mon now think of tomorrow yeah I know how to stop your sorrow and turn it around everything's gonna change cause when you are here with me I think you would agree it's clearer for us to see what is distracting and you are in too deep I wanna be there when you are weak to carry you all the way you all the way you all the way c'mon girl turn out the light and let's bid this town a last goodbye and we'll drive up the coast yeah that's where we're gona go let the wind dance around your hand let all the thoughts that you just can't stand rush out of your head start thinkin' instead of us in this California sun honey let yourself come undone start having a little fun follow your passion cuz you are in too deep I wanna be there when you are weak to carry you all the way you all the way you all the way come on girl it's time to show this cruel world that now you know how to take it in stride leave your troubles behind, let's ride go on and wipe all your tears away cuz you cannot fix the broken days that hurt you before there's so much more ahead cause when you are here with me I think you would agree it's clearer for us to see what is distracting and you are in too deep I wanna be there when you are weak to carry you all the way you all the way you all the way you are in too deep I'm gonna be there when you are weak to carry you all the way you all the way you all the way

Lyrics

Take each day as it comes 'cuz it will never be returned a moment savored is a moment earned my heart will know the way even if it gets turned any mistake is a lesson learned I'm finding as I go the more I learn the less I know what's black and white today turns into shades of grey shades of grey it's time to take my time no need to go to extremes the truth isn't always (the truth isn't always) what it seems I'm finding as I go the more I learn the less I know what's black and white today turns into shades of grey shades of grey I question everything answer to no one I don't need apporval my needy days are done I'm finding as I go the more I learn the less I know what's black and white today turns into shades of grey shades of grey shades of grey

Story

I wrote this song to be a touchstone, not just for me but for everyone who experienced the sense of loss...

Lyrics

My Wounded City

 

last night I walked

where few can go

way down inside

the frozen zone

 

I saw the ruins

beneath the smoke

and I sensed the ghosts

of my wounded city

 

as I gazed up

at that dark sky

I said a prayer

for all mankind

 

while they dig deep

down into hell

it's just a shell

my wounded city

 

with every passing hour

they hung on tethered ropes

held out their darkest fears

for just one single hope

 

they never count the tears

they only count the souls

lost somewhere beneath

my wounded city

 

they turned these streets

into a shrine

they all joined hands

and formed a line

 

a line of faith

so pure and strong

I feel your loss

my wounded city

 

with every passing hour

they hung on tethered ropes

held out their darkest fears

for just one single hope

 

they never count the tears

they only count the souls

lost somewhere beneath

my wounded city

 

with every candle's burning light

there is proof that we unite

while boys and girls

lay in their beds

and dream of their fathers home again

 

we'll find the will

we will survive

we'll join our hearts

here side by side

 

I know someday

we'll find the strength

to rebuild

my wounded city

 

with every passing hour

we hang on tethered ropes

hold our their darkest fears

for just one single hope

 

we'll never count our tears

they only count the souls

lost somewhere beneath

our wounded city

 

someday we'll rise above

this wounded city...

Lyrics

Between The Lines I've been going along this highway sometimes I don't stay between the lines I keep asking the same old questions a thousand times how did I get here... and where do I go now I gotta find out what my purpose is somehow follow your chosen road find your light between the lines all my life I followed reason like those signs along that road but even signs can be misleading and then you're lost so I'm gonna go out tonite and find myself out there you can meet me if you want to but I'm not sure where I've gone through so many changes took chances I'll never regret but sometimes your last hope is your best bet looking for self assurance changing lanes from right to wrong pulling over to the shoulder but not for too long so I'm out here tonite where the road reaches into the sky come along if you want to just don't ever ask me why I go through so many changes take chances I'll never regret sometimes your last hope...is your best bet some nights the miles go by unnoticed and you look back on your past but like the lights in the rear view mirror life's approaching you fast follow your chosen road find your light between the lines

Lyrics

Penny In A Well Dropped a penny down into a well and I closed my eyes thought of all the things I could have but what more could I want should I ask for a house on a beach my own remote island or the riches of some noble king maybe the peace of self medidation but as the penny sinks down I realize all I want is you for as long as my heart's beating all I want is you the secret's not worth keeping all I want is you cuz love is still worth giving I could ask for my name in the stars or the keys to some fancy car or a map of a treasure hidden deep but then what would it mean it wouldn't mean anything no, it wouldn't mean anything all I want is you for as long as my heart's beating all I want is you the secret's not worth keeping all I want is you cuz love is still worth giving all I want all I want is you as the penny sinks down I realize that all I want is you for as long as my heart's beating all I want is you the secret's not worth keeping all I want is you cuz love is still worth giving all I want is you

Lyrics

I got a car I got a road I got a feeling I should let you know since you've been gone there's something left between us I got a habit of sleeping to long maybe it's 'cuz I'm sleeping alone I lie awake these nights thinking of all I've won and lost we all have dreams and some get bought and sold I've got a thing for you but your blood runs hot and cold I've got a heart that's busted open maybe it's worth it's weight in gold but I ain't got the mind to let you go I got a prayer I still got some hope but I feel like a boxer against the ropes I got a memory of you in my arms I'm holding onto I got an apartment I live in alone it's filled ith guitars and too many songs I got no regrets I settled my debts but it's been a long road we all have dreams and some get bought and sold I've got a thing for you but your blood runs hot and cold I've got a heart that's busted open maybe it's worth it's weight in gold but I ain't got the mind to let you go like a spirit that won't cross over a long lost wandering soul I keep stoking the dying embers that one burned out of control we all have dreams and some get bought and sold I've got a thing for you but your blood runs hot and cold I've got a heart that's busted open maybe it's worth it's weight in gold but I ain't got the mind no I ain't got the mind to let you go

Lyrics

COVERED IN MUD

maybe we've run out of rope aiming too high and coming in low our love is tender and wrong never as strong as we thought it was when you break all the working parts and pile up enough false starts all you see from beneath is dark covered in mud covered in mud blurry, or lost from my view our innocent days the love that we knew lately, we're digging so deep trying to bury the past but our hands aren't clean when you're lost and you're far from home to somewhere the grass ain't growing that old storm comes to swallow you whole you'll be covered in mud covered in mud empty something is gone I don't wanna blame the fighting is done can we try to go back to an easier time when we knew what we had we can wait for the clouds to pass or the rain's gonna cover our path in a flood rising up too fast we'll be covered in mud covered in mud maybe we've run out of hope aiming too high and coming in low...

Lyrics

SET IN STONE I wrangled all my courage I summoned all my strength a defiant journey into the unknown you think that I'd know better from living life this long to recognize a lie when it's been told let it go leave it all behind all my troubles pale in comparison to living in your lie where the promises lay empty on the bedroom floor what I've come to know nothing's set in stone I struggled with your silence stood vigil in my manor but through it all I never left your side but therein lies the danger of genuine intention where you find yourself falling from that climb let it go script it how you like starring in the role of unpredictable I'm studying your lines your water color memories only reveal more of what I've come to know that nothing's set in stone
