My lyrics, in reverse chronological order.

 

 

"You Have Me Now"

You have me now. All at once it seems so clear.

You have my attention. Oh, this could be something

I’ve had my questions, like where am I going? What am I doing?

But I’m gonna trust my instincts, on this one before I let you pass me by

 

Think I’m gonna take a take a chance now

Get to know you better

And if I don’t make it, make it happen now

Things will never change

 

You have me now. I think I’m starting to believe 

This feels so natural. I’ve never had it come this easy

 

Think I’m gonna take a take a chance now

Talk about the future,

And if I don’t make it, make it happen now

Things will never change

 


"January Love"

Tell me to run, Tell me to leave this city 

and move on, get gone.

Tell me to fly, Tell me that it’s gonna be

alright, that I can leave for a while

But don’t you crack a smile, Don’t look into my eyes,

Or I might stay

 

I can see it coming, I think I might be falling

For a January love

The timing is tragic, But this winter has a magic  

that makes my heart come undone

I guess I don’t mind, a January love

 

Tell me a lie, tell me it’s just gonna end like the other times

When I stayed behind

Call me a fool, tell me I’m better off without you

And to forget you

 

But don’t you crack a smile, Don’t look into my eyes,

Don’t you make me fall, don’t ruin it all

Or I may never leave


"It Isn't Easy"

Eighteen years of learning, and still I feel I know nothing.

If anything I learned how to fit in

But I've started this journey, searching for the truth.

I could take the next step the way I took my first and life would be easy,

Best I can explain it’s like a bird in the nest who’s too afraid to fly.

 

It isn’t easy, but we grow from the pain

It isn’t hard to see the risk in making a change

It isn’t common giving up what you held onto so tightly

But I’m letting go, to refine my soul

 

23 years pretending, to be someone else

The man I thought I should be

Guess I finally realized I didn’t know myself

I started to wonder was it all just a dream?

Was I ever really honest

It's like my eyes are opened and I see so clear,

But I never would have known

 

It isn’t easy, but we grow from the pain

It isn’t hard to see the risk in making a change

It isn’t common giving up what you held onto so tightly

But I’m letting go, to refine my soul

 


"Give Till It's Gone"

So many good things I’ve wasted. I’ve been so unsatisfied 

I’ve taken for granted the things that I have

I’m tired of feeling selfish

I’m tired of being ashamed

 

I’ve been learning how to love again

I did not realize, I had it wrong.

You give till it’s gone.

 

I’ve trusted my feelings for far too long

And they’ve always let me down

I want to be there when it’s hard

I want to help you get through the dark     

 

I’ve been learning how to love again

I did not realize, I had it wrong.

You give till it’s gone.


"Spinning"

I don't feel right alone here

You and me the space between

I don't feel anymore

 

Got me spinning round, oh got me spinning round

You're in my head, you're in my head

Got me spinning round, oh got me spinning round

You're in my head, you're in my head

 

Days, nights, sleep

Dreams, Oh dreams can't keep you here

 

Got me spinning round, oh got me spinning round

You're in my head, you're in my head

Got me spinning round, oh got me spinning round

You're in my head, you're in my head

 

I still think about you, I still think about you,

I still dream about you

 

Got me spinning round, oh got me spinning round

You're in my head, you're in my head

Got me spinning round, oh got me spinning round

You're in my head, you're in my head


"Brave Desire"

Leave the light, cause I can't take the dark of night
It's sad but I don't have the might
To make it to another break of dawn

Don't you leave, cause if you do I'll never be
Satisfied with only me
Living in this house built for two


Scared to live, but I'm scared to die
Scared to put my life on the line
I want to take a chance sometime
Balance on the wire
My Brave Desire

 

Store it up, Hide it with your silver cup,
Keep it from the ones you love,
Cause money is a shelter in the storm

Shy away, Cause I don't want to lose this way
I think I'll turn a shade of gray
and blend until I can't be recognized

 

Scared to live, but I'm scared to die
Scared to put my life on the line
I want to take a chance sometime
Balance on the wire
My Brave Desire

 

Cause I, have been holding on to fleeting things so
Tight, to the things I know that will not last but
I, want to open up these clenching fists and
I, want to live like I've got love to give
I'm giving in, to this Brave Desire

 

Learn to live
Give yourself a chance to give
Move beyond your fatal fears
And taste the freedom on the other side


"Flower"

She makes her move, I try to play it cool

But she knows I'm on the run
She's got me a hold on my heart
that I can't seem to shake
cause I've tried to let her go


She's got a flower in her hair
And a look in her eye
a beacon in the night

She's giving me peace now
And she's causing me grief now
My hopes and fears collide

 

Trying not to think about her
But she's running through my mind
I know she's far away

We dance through the night
To the rhythms of my mind
She's perfectly in time

 

She's got a flower in her hair
And a look in her eye
a beacon in the night

She's giving me peace now
And she's causing me grief now
My hopes and fears collide

 

I'm getting carried away in the moment

I gotta wait till the time is right

I gotta watch her walk away

Watch her go now, watch her flyyyyyy

 

She's got a flower in her hair
And a look in her eye
a beacon in the night


"Someday"

Draw the line
cut the tie
make the choice, tonight

lay me down
give me rest from this
trying, to fight

 

How can you know
If it's worth a go?
And how do you let it fade
Who's to blame,
When the feelings aren't the same?
The scales are surely off balance/tipped
I tried to keep
The sun from going down

 

Think it through
Check the boxes
Don't the numbers work out?

Fool me once
Fool me again,
You're a riddle I can't solve

 

I've thought it through
Made my choice
But thinking wouldn't make this work
Try all I can
I'm just a man,
And me is all I can do.
So I'm done convincing you
To keep the sun from going down

 

Someday, I won't have to prove myself
Someday I won't have to fear
No more forcing, no more remorsing
And She will be glad I'm around
But for now, I have found
I can't keep the setting sun from going down


"Love, Please Be True"

Is it something in the distance

Is it just outside your reach

Is it something that you've heard of, or

Is it something you believe

 

I've heard it's nothing less than perfect

Yet it causes so much pain

I've heard it changes you forever

But I still feel the same

 

Love please be true

I'm sick of playing games i only want to know you

Oh love please be mine

Prove to me that you are worth a lifetime

Oooooooo ——   oooh

 

Have you seen it in the roses
Have you seen it in the park
Have you watched it in the movies
While you wondered in the dark

 

Is there something that we're missing
A piece to make the puzzle whole
We've been raised with this illusion
To where the false is all we know
 

It's counter to the world

It's better than the lies that I believed before

It's nothing I deserve, but everything I need

 

Love, love is true

I've seen it in my father, he's poured it out like water on my soul

Live is mine, given as a gift, to last a lifetime 


"Paris, Alone"

What's Paris alone?
Just a city with walls of stone.
What's waiting in Rome?
I don't know

 

Without someone I love with me
I don't know if I want anything

Without someone who knows me truly,

I don't want to be alone

 

Lost the will to dream
Days are colder than they used to be
What's the point of starting something
If you're starting it alone

 

Without someone I love with me
I don't know if I want anything
Without someone who knows me truly
I don't want to be alone

 

Without you without you here...
 

Take a step with me

we can do this you will see
Let's see the world
You and I

 

Without someone I love with me
I don't know if I want anythin

Without someone who know's me truly,

I don't want to be alone. 


"Water"

I go down to the water
and look at my reflection
The current is shifting
Like the thoughts in my mind
I’m not afraid to start dreaming
of where the water might take me
The ripples start forming
and I blend into the sky


I can't handle the water
This force that moves me on
I'm helplessly drifting
Waiting for the calm
Try to swim against the water
and it starts to overtake me
There's nothing I can do now
But follow it down


Cause I am out of control
I'm holding on to nothing
And giving you everything
I will loosen this hold
Cause when I let go
That's when you take me

 

The past has gotten me here
Through a maze of choices
After all,Here I am
The future is out of my hands
But I see it in the distance
But I'm no longer afraid of the waves
Pressing on into the waves.

 

Cause I am out of control
I'm holding on to nothing
And giving you everything
I will loosen this hold
Cause when I let go
That's when you take me down the river

 

Take me on a journey
Hold me through the night
Lead me into everlasting
Guide me to the light
