Released 2001

Music drawing heavily from blues, soul and rock influences. Music written with care and thought, but is still primal and intuitive. Music that won't make you want to dance, but will make you want to move. Give a listen, you will like what you hear

    Come Will What May

    turn the wheel tell me do you like it
    like that could you tell me how that makes you feel
    we’ve got to break your stance
    cause there is a time to be still and there is a time to dance

    Come on come on come will what may
    Well fit the pieces on our way
    Come on come on come will what may
    I thought I heard you say

    switch the track tell me does that make you burn
    does it mean there is no turning back
    we’ve got to hold down this groove
    there is a time to be still and there is a time to move

    Come on come on come will what may
    We can fill in the blanks along the way
    Come on come on come will what may
    I hought I heard you say

    Oh now we can break this wall
    Im tired of watching this bouncing ball
    There’s a time to climb
    but sometimes you go higher if you just let yourself fall

    Come on baby Come on Come on
    Come on Come on come on come will what may
    Well light the candles on our way
    Come on come on come will what may
    I thought I heard you say
    Come on come on come will what may
    What do they know anyway
    Come on come on come will what may
    I thought I heard you say

    Heavy

    I should be lying were your lying
    giving thanks to the up above with heaven by my side
    and we could make our bed into an ocean dive into the deep blue sea
    and look up to see the sunlight fading
    and as we went deeper we’d hold onto each other
    and put the full weight of love on the other

    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy Yes I do
    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy I want to fall right through

    I should be walking were your walking
    through some carnival with rides and candy and freak shows
    and we could take a ride on roller coaster up into the big blue sky
    look down and see how crazy this world is
    and as we went higher we’d hold onto each other
    and put the full weight of our love on the other

    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy Yes I do
    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy I want to fall right through

    Give me your hand
    Give me your heart to
    I want your everything until then anything will do
    Just give me something I can hold on to

    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy
    Heavy with you
    Heavy Baby I want to get heavy
    I want to fall right through

    Heaven & Hollywood

    I loved a woman and she loved me back
    She said I love you and that’s a fact
    but like all good things it came to an end
    and since that’s happened its since happened again

    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    I’ve been every where in between
    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    You been round long enough and you’ll know what I mean

    stood on the mountain king of the hill
    first to the top but always fresh from the kill
    it’s a kick in the face and a spit in the eye
    living on the edge dying to fly

    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    I’ve been every where in between
    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    You been round long enough and you’ll know what I mean

    picked an apple from a tree took a bite and the world
    came crashing down on me
    here it comes and there it goes
    and where it winds up really nobody knows
    filled my pockets and shined my shoes
    so many choices don’t know which one to choose
    watching the clock so I’ll know when the time is right
    blowing it all out on a Saturday night

    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    I’ve been every where in between
    I’ve been to Heaven and I’ve been to Hollywood
    You been round long enough and you’ll know what I mean

    Seree

    look upon a morning star
    always know where you are
    sleep beneath a fading moon
    tomorrow always comes to soon
    and the change always comes like this
    lightly in my palm and heavy in my fist
    run my hands through the air
    and feel my fingers through your hair

    Seree

    Looking upon a setting sun
    light most brilliant now in its final run
    gaze beneath a rolling sky
    always rolling the clouds walk across my eye
    water always flows like this
    knees on the shore current on my lips
    lay me down now in the sand and feel my weight upon your hand

    Seree

    Look upon a bird in flight
    if you can feel the wind then you can catch the light
    Lean against a changing tree
    always changing the leaves rise above my knee
    Seasons come and go like this
    steady comes the fall
    the wind carries off my kiss
    watch the water as it turns to ice
    and see my reflection in your eyes

    Seree

    Took All of Me

    in our room and on our bed
    theres still an imprint on the pillow from where you laid your head
    take my fear take my pride take everything I kept on the inside
    take my love take my hate take it all and say its not to late
    didn’t your mama teach you to only take what you need

    You took all of me
    You took everything
    And there ain’t nothing left
    You took all of me
    You took everything and im just an empty space

    out our house and in our car driving to anywhere
    as long any where is far take my joy take my pain take it all and lets do it again

    You took all of me
    You took everything and im just an empty space
    You took all of me
    You took everything
    And there ain’t nothing left

    Didn’t your mama teach you to finish what you start
    Didn’t your mama teach you
    Not to play with a mans heart
    Didn’t your mama teach you

    You took all of me
    You took everything
    And there ain’t nothing left
    You took all of me
    You took everything and im just an empty space

    I Can Fly

    give it to me real I want to feel
    reach my hands out and set aside
    all this doubt ain’t no mountain side that I cant climb
    got to bring all my powers together cause its know or never

    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly I can fly way up to the sky I can fly

    don’t want to take it slow
    I’ve got to go towards that vision
    no time for indecision
    ain’t no stretch of land that I can’t cross
    I’ve just got to loss my mind cross that line

    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky

    Don’t want to wait until I die
    I only need to try
    One step and then another
    There ain’t no way other

    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky
    I can fly I can fly way up to the sky

    Need Your Love

    I put my foot into the water
    and then I was a thousand miles from shore
    I tried t fight the current
    but it only made me want you even more
    so now im just laying down my pride
    waving my arms up in the air
    like some abandoned cast away firing up a flair

    I need your love
    Like a baby needs a mamas care
    I need your love in a way that’s more then I can bare
    I need your love
    Got to have your love

    I looked into your eyes and it all came shining through
    and I was lost in your existence since long before I knew
    I just got to make you understand
    Im just trying to make it clear
    Im gonna move a little closer now and whisper in your ear

    I need your love
    and there’s no one left to blame
    I just need your love don’t want to ever be the same
    I need your love
    Every evening needs the come of dawn
    I need your love
    Just to carry on

    and I don’t know if Im right or wrong or
    weather this makes me weak or strong

    I need your love like a baby needs a mamas care
    I need your love
    Its more them I can bare
    I need your love
    and these nothing left to say
    I just need your love and there ain’t no other way
    I need your love
    got to have your love

    Carry On

    don’t look at me like that
    you’re the one that’s packing
    gathering up your things
    telling me how Im lacking
    oh my sweet angel not again

    Carry on sweet angel
    Carry on

    smoking your last cigarette
    looking like your dying
    you can take it anymore
    you say that I ain’t trying
    oh my sweet angel not again

    Carry on sweet angel
    While your still willing and able
    Carry on

    Father time you must have gone and lost your mind
    If you thought that I was ready to move it on down the line

    Carry on sweet angel
    While your still willing and able
    Carry on sweet lover
    You know that there will be another
    Carry on

    See You Standing

    the conductor says your leaving in less then half of an hour
    and its all the more dramatic and your all the beautiful in this rain shower
    Im trying to act like Im the one hear with the power
    conductor says your leaving in less then half of an hour

    I can still see you standing there
    Your trying to act like you don’t really care
    look at me Im so damn lazay fair
    I can still see you standing there

    your rolling on now on your padded sit
    I wonder if there going to give you a little bit of food to eat
    I bet your trying to find a comfy place to rest your feet
    rolling on now on your padded sit

    I can still see you standing there
    ur trying to act like you don’t really care
    look at me Im so damn debonair
    I can still see you standing there

    And its been many a year
    And I have shed many a tear
    And many a time have I replayed
    It all while staring down into a beer

    I can still see you standing there
    I can still see you standing there
    I can still see you standing there
    I can still see you standing

    Closer to Hell

    I was raised from town to town
    we stayed just long enough for my daddy to take one down
    Id drop my fishing line in a river and never get to real it up
    Id cast my star on some pretty young thing
    and never get to fill my cup
    when I was young my daddy said

    If you want to learn how to use a gun son
    then you better learn boy how to run
    no time to be staring down the shaft of a wishing well
    you stand still and stand closer to hell

    these men that I ride with
    I wouldn’t call any one of them my brother
    Id shoot anyone or all of them down
    just like I would any other
    I’ve had women from all across this land
    never once was I taken to ask one for their hand

    If you want to learn how to use a gun son
    then you better learn boy how to run
    no time to be staring down the shaft of a wishing well
    you stand still and stand closer to hell

    I ain’t scared of no hang man
    Im not frightened by no galos pole
    that ain’t the reason Im so long gone
    so long before the bodies get cold
    I remember the fear in my daddies voice
    the moment before he fell
    he said I ain’t afraid of dying so much
    as I am of dying and going to hell

    If you want to learn how to use a gun son
    then you better learn boy how to run
    no time to be staring down the shaft of a wishing well
    you stand still and stand closer to hell
