She is running all over All over me like a waterfall Yosemite She is a late sunrising Rising over me Like an sawtooth oak my canopy Hanging on her every word I tried my best to learn How I can be hers Let me tell you bout a mystery I am the joker and she is the queen ended up falling on a bended knee in the summer Wedding bells and and story to tell 5 years later from the day I fell We waited through all these stairs and steps she's a west wind blowing blowing me over me like hurricane calamity she is a full moon shining shining over me like a distant star hanging out of reach here I waste my light while the sun begins to shine I'll wait until she's mine We started out heading west with only our clothes and a beat up desk never really knowing what the hell was next and we loved it everything that we needed was there up in Seattle and the mountain air Falling away from a million cares we made it through all these stairs and steps twenty five and living a dream Hear she comes our little beauty queen prettiest thing that you’d ever seen In the world 28 and two weeks late there he was heaven on its way baby you and I made it to this day And we made it through all these stairs and steps All these stairs and steps

Head in the field Head in the water Head in the clouds I want to feel like rain Holding me back Holding my hands up Here I’m stuck between the palm and pine Am I late Waiting for the rain looking for a sign or rapture I can’t stay waiting For the day Waiting for the here and after Shadow me save me from sun give me branches I can gather Between the palm and the pine saving a moment Saving a ryhme saving the image of a ghost in time Am I stone rolling away Am I stuck between the night and day Am I late Waiting for the rain looking for a sign or rapture I can’t stay waiting For the day Waiting for the here and after Shadow me save me from sun give me branches I can gather Between the palm and the pine Between the palm and the pine Between the palm and the pine

in a moment You will want to see it looking out at sunset Here the waves crash against the stones in this moment you are all too perfect But I can’t believe it when the sun's going down He said I don’t know Where we go After we die Will I be alright She said I don’t know But I’ll be here tomorrow And you can see me With the sun in your eyes on a Monday She would wait all day he was fine on Sunday now a change in the wind he said I feel it but this I never wanted But now that I can hear it I’m only being honest In the end He said I don’t know Where we go After we die Will I be alright She said I don’t know But I’ll be here tomorrow But you can’t see me With the sun in your eyes I got a feeling I’m gonna see the stars Baby I’ll be waiting I know where you are Don’t forget I’m never too far away I got go for now I can see the light If only could see it what a heavily sight This is not the end it will be alright I let me go.

Lovely 04:19
I gotta key a key to this city with a rose a rose in my hand I turn around, around for a minute Then it all comes to an end While she she’s so lovely yeah she, she’s so lovely Yea lovely Caught in the memory of twenty five years Everything I knew and everything I feared I once believed I would be there for life But here comes the reaper to tell me it’s time While she she’s so lovely yeah she, she’s so lovely Yea lovely

By My Side 03:20
Bluebonnet highway 290 west for miles no place like her Where the flowers grow wild From east to the west From north to the south once You settle here you’ll never get out with a bandera sunset And a hillside fire And Port Aransas waves that never grow tired She shines just like heaven with a glorious light and I know when I die she'll be there by my side By my side Late into august She’ll be burning like a flame When I hear her call me out She’ll be calling me by name I float down the frio And I coast through her plains I stop in El Paso where it hardly ever rains and I know that forever, If I live or if I die, She’ll be there She'll be there By My Side

you can call my bluff even though I made a cold call with two queens and jack a full house didn’t stand tall yeah another wiseman’s vision just a fool and his decision couldn’t leave it alone we all know know she’s right you can’t win at any fight you just leave it alone we all know she’s right we got give it up this time and just leave it alone hear back door slam I see the headlights with the stove top on and a flame bright weather wrong or right I see it I better come now to believe it I gotta leave it alone I gotta leave it alone we all know know she’s right you can’t win at any fight you just leave it alone we all know she’s right we got give it up this time and just leave it alone

I Don't Know 02:51
I take melody and turn into therapy I write a simple song and sing about a comedy well i’m an open book full of great stories I live a simple so I don’t need to worry I don’t fear the unknown I just fear what I know Am I right? am I wrong? well I don’t know see what you want to see- I’ll leave up to you interpretation is what we tend to do we’ve got reasons we gotta a lot of views but hesitation, tell me would it bother you? We don’t fear the unknown we just fear what we know are we right? are we wrong? well we don’t know all the lessons never learned all the pages never turned in our story we all wonder what comes next I don’t fear the unknown I just fear what I know Am I right? am I wrong? well I don’t know

In the living room at my mothers house I held onto a photo of someone I’ve lived without I knew that day when you took my hand You said I better tell you now don’t let me down easy I can take it like a man I heard you got some news to tell about my old man And you wondered if I’d break I know it’s hard to tell I know at first it will be hard as hell So don’t let down easy these demons come these demons go I feel undone and now it's starting to show with the grey hairs on my head and beard Tell a story of a setting sun don’t Let me down easy I can take it like a man I know my days are numbered in this sinking sand And the hope of my life is that promise land So be good my friend and take my hand And don’t let me down easy Don’t let me down easy I can take it like a man i wanted this for all my life Now I can finally stand In the middle my mess Where the healing begins And the pain has helped me understand So don't let me down easy

Far Away 02:58
I found a place where I can go far out on a long stretch of road some where I can clear my head somewhere I can look and ahead and find no street lights and see no head lights and go far away, far away, far away, far away from all this sound from all this sound driving down grant road at night stars got brighter further from the city lights I would love to drive an hour or to park and open up the dun roof looking up at nothing but the universe and star far away, far away, far away, far away from all this sound from all this sound

When I see the moon light When I see the crow fly landing on the tree high Late into the dark night I can’t beat the breeze Falling on my knees in Atlantic seas in the bottom where my feet are Resting in between here is what I see this is desolate feelings of regret trying to forget I’m not leaving yet Not without you Not without you When I see the shadow When I feel fear grow Everything that I know counting back to zero never sounded easy Never would believe me you want to appease me but you can't even see me Walking in the dark ready on your mark never looking back Train is on the track here comes the sun but I'm never done not without you Not Without you Walking in the mire living in desire pulling out the weeds while stepping on the fire grass is always green but I have never seen where the water flows the river or the stream while I was in the meadow swaying like a willow leaves are turning yellow fall is saying hello thought the looking glass this will never last not without you Not without you

about

This album is about the progression of what led me to the where I'm currently at in life. As a man, artist, father, fatherless, transition, etc. Regardless of mistakes and set backs I'm moving forward. That's all I have.
