about

This album is a collection of a bunch of the songs I've released over the past few years. They were always meant to sort of tell a story and progress from one to the other, but after I graduated college work started to take over my life and producing new music became much slower.

But now I've finally finished all the tracks I wanted to write and record for this and I wanted to close out this section of my art by putting all these tracks into a collection for you to enjoy front to back and in the best quality possible!

I hope you all enjoy it!

Track Name: Can't Take This
Verse 1:
Another failed exam
I messed things up again
I missed my rent so now I'm on the curb without a plan

My girlfriend left me here
It's almost been a year
Since then my life's been upside down and things are never clear.

Chorus:
Yeah 'cause life is short
And you just can't win
'Times I curse this life
That I'm livin' in
Someone stop the ride
'Cause I'm feeling sick
Someone let me off
'Cause I just can't take this

Verse 2:
So life's been pretty rough
I think I've had enough
I'm not quite sure of just how long that I can keep this up

Don't know just what I said
Can't clear my aching head
I need to keep my self on track or I might end up dead

[Chorus]

Bridge:
Do I even try to, explain myself to you
I just keep on tryin', to keep pushing through
I don't know how I keep, getting back up again
I just know that I can't do it without my friends
Track Name: A Praise Chorus
Verse 1:
Are you going to live your life wondering
Standing in the back looking around?
Are you going to waste your time thinking
How you've grown up
Or how you missed out?
Things are never gonna be the way you want
Where's it going to get you acting serious?
Things are never going to be quite what you want
Even at twenty five you got to start sometime

Pre-Chorus:
I'm on my feet
I'm on the floor
I'm good to go
All I need is just to hear a song I know
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine
I wanna fall in love tonight

Verse 2:
Are you gonna to live your life standing in the back looking around?
Are you going to waste your time?
Gotta make a move or you'll miss out
Someone's gonna to ask you what it's all about
Stick around nostalgia won't let you down
Someone's gonna to ask you what's it's all about
What are you gonna have to say for yourself?

[Pre-Chorus]

Chorus:
Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over
Our house in the middle of the street
(Crimson and clover, over and over)
Why did we ever meet
Start in my rock and roll fantasy
(Crimson and clover, over and over)
Don't don't don't let's start
(Crimson and clover, over and over)
Why did we ever part
Kick start my rock and roll heart

I'm on my feet
I'm on the floor
I'm good to go
So come on Davey, sing me something that I know
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine
I wanna fall in love tonight
Here, tonight
I wanna fall in love tonight
Here tonight
I wanna always feel like part of this was mine
I wanna fall in love tonight
I wanna fall in love tonight
I wanna fall in love tonight
Track Name: Crystal Heart
Verse 1:
I can't tell you when it started in my mind
When my thoughts would drift to you from time to time
But now this feeling's getting worse
It's like I'm trapped under a curse
A caring hand upon this lonely heart of mine

straight into Verse 2:
She seems so close, but she's so far away
And I never feel that I can find the words to say
But I don't want to break this spell
Or let these feelings just dispell
But all that I can do is take things day by day

Chorus:
Can't you see
This feeling's killing me
The words I say are never right
I try and try most every night
So know
That I can't let this go
But I'm not ready for this love to start
I want the words to be as clear
As a crystal heart

Verse 3:
If she were e'r to say that she was mine
Then I would be there for her till the end of time
But I can't tell her in the end
That I want more than just a friend
That I'm just searching for some refuge or a sign

[chorus]

Bridge:
Cause it isn't like I haven't felt this way before
But all those feelings did was leave me broken on the floor
So now I'm fearing that this love will end the same
Standing alone, my tears mixing with the rain

[chorus]

Outro:
I can't tell you when it started in my mind
When I wanted to be with her until the end of time...
Track Name: When You're Offline
Verse 1:
Tearing out this page
It’s so hard to write
Try to block out these thoughts in my mind
Wonder if they’ll fade
These memories of mine
Maybe they will wear over time

Pre-Chorus:
I often find myself
thinking of you from time to time

Chorus:
Remember back to all those summers
Where we would spend all day
Stay up late and talk for hours
Always knew just what to say
But then you went and found another
What we had is dead and gone
Although I think I’m starting to
Finally move on

Verse 2:
I know you’ve got your friends
You know that I’ve got mine
I look forward to seeing them online
But you’re never there
I wait for a sign
I just keep telling myself I’m doing fine

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

Bridge:
I can’t deny what I felt inside
But I think it’s time I finally moved on
And I wonder when I’ll see you again
Where have you gone

[Chorus]
Track Name: Listen To Me
Verse 1:
Ring ring on the telephone
Is there anybody home
I’m waiting
For you

I’m not like all those other guys
I didn’t want to make you mine
I gave
Myself to you

But you left that gift just sitting by the door

Chorus:
You’re never near me
Cause you think that I am just a waste of time
You never hear me
Cause your new boyfriend's always clogging the line
The girl I once called best friend
Is she there or can you take a message please
I’m begging on my knees
For you to listen to me

Verse 2:
Each night I try to sleep
Leave a message after the beep
Can’t find
The words to say

I tried to give my heart to you
You chose another and broke mine in two
The skies
Are turning grey

And as I knew it would the rain begins to fall

[Chorus]

Bridge:
They say I’m selfish
But all I wanted was to
give the world to you
You called me stupid
Said it’s never gonna happen
I don’t know what to do
Cause every song I hear
Reminds me of the times I spent
With you
With you
Track Name: Last Song
Verse 1:
This has been going on
Each second i look you're gone
You're not calling
It's time for me to move on
My friends were right all along
You keep falling away

Giving ups not easy
Its hard enough just saying

Chorus:
As much as i make believe
You're not really here with me
What was i thinking from the beginning
You didn't care at all

So here's your last song

Verse 2:
I can leave it all behind
Or take another chance to find you
No where in sight
Going to the movies alone
Every scene that's shown
Reminds me of you

Giving ups not easy
Its hard enough just saying

Chorus 2:
As much as i make believe
You're not really here with me
What was i thinking from the beginning
You didn't care at all
All that's left are the memories
Constantly haunting me
I'm giving up it's time to grow up
You're not around and we're not in love

Bridge:
Laying around in around in this hotel room
Too much to think about nothing to do
She's not coming back she's not coming back

Final Chorus:
As much as i make believe
Something in side of me
Has got me hoping got me thinking
Who am i to assume

This love is crazy
Unpredictable maybe
You'll melt my heart like you did from the start
All over again like it's not the end

So here's your last song

Yeah we made it out
Yeah we made it out
Yeah we made it out
Yeah we made it out
Track Name: What If
Verse 1:
What if I was wiser
Had found the words to say
To pull you through those struggles
That you go through every day
But my message is forgotten
Empty words upon a screen

What if I was closer
Could hold you in my arms
And protect you from a world that's full of
Tragedy and harms
Oh I tried to be there for you
Was as close as I could be

Pre Chorus 1:
But instead I flew back home alone
My heart was torn in two
And it's taken me till now to see
I'm not the one for you

And though things may change in time
I think for now I'm moving on
And the words they finally flow enough
To help me sing this song

Chorus:
And I
Am not quite sure just what’s wrong with me
(It’s hard to see)
And I
Know now it just won't work with you and me
(It sets me free)
But if I
Can’t find a way to understand myself
How can I give
The life I live
To someone else

Verse 2:
What if I was better
Would that have made things change
With all these twists and turns
It's like my life's beenre-arranged
And after all of this I don't know
What I'm feeling anymore

What if things were different
What if we had met before
'Cause by the time I came upon you
You had gone and shut the door
So I'm staring through the window
And my heart's upon the floor

Pre Chorus 2:
But instead of standing there just dreaming
Of what might have been
I'll forget about the past and
Do my best to try again

And though things may change in time
I think for now I'm moving on
And the words they finally flow enough
To help me sing this song
Track Name: Ignorance and Bliss
Verse 1:
The clock it chimes for me
Feels like eternity
I step, into the light of evening

The traffic passing by
But nothing meets my eyes
And deep inside there grows this feeling

Pre-Chorus:
I wonder why
I even try

Chorus:
I never wanted this
Say ignorance is bliss
And on top of it all
I feel like I'm gonna fall
Into the same old lies

Just want to call it quits
Let ignorance be bliss
But if i fall out of line
Take it a step at a time
And let the world pass by

Verse 2:
The sun is setting now
But i'm still learning how
To find, the one who's got the answer

The morning after comes
But this is never done
Can't help my heart from beating faster

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

Bridge:
And I'll stand my own
Though I may feel alone

I'll take my rest
And do my best
To try
