    Ever wanted to be in a rock band? Me too. So me and my old college roomies did just that. None of us really knew how. We just sorta did. This is that project. The combination of some really talented guys, and myself.

    And now for something completely different.

This was a labor of love for my bandmates: Vince Romanelli, Michael Shoup, and I. Self-produced in a basement and any studio our friends would lend us in the wee hours of any night they had available. We liked how it turned out. We hope you do too.


released March 6, 2009

Vince Romanelli produced it. Michael Shoup played on it. I sang it. We all wrote it. With the exception of "Defying Gravity" which shows up courtesy of Stephen Schwartz Publishing All Rights Reserved

Track Name: Defying Gravity
Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules of someone else's game
Too late for second guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap

It's time to try defying gravity
I think I'll try defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye, defying gravity
You can't pull me down

I'm through accepting limits
Cause someone says they're so
Some things I'll never change
But till I try I'll never know
For too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love, it comes at much too high a cost

I'd sooner buy defying gravity
I think I'll try defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye, I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down
Track Name: Difference
Hey, where did everybody go?
Busy livin' life "just so"
And end up dyin' all alone

Hey, I know things aren't ideal
Sick of facing all the real
It's hard enough to follow what you feel

Sitting idle doesn't get things done

If there's ever been a chance
to rise above and make a difference
We can make it, let's take it
It life with passion's what you want
It's nice to know you're not the only one
We can make it, let's take it

They tell you what they want to hear
Forget the truth they're preachin' fear
They say the end is drawing near

They got their notions preconceived
But is that really what we need
Distractions keeping us from chasing all our dreams

Sitting Idle doesn't get things done

If there's ever been a chance...
Track Name: Left Me
It's strange how a song could say what I couldn't
Words trip over tongues on the way
Took a good friend to visit and mention your name
To send me straight back to the day...

You left me

Months fell into years with the coming of springs
I fought with the coldest of hearts
Head-first into the seasons, your voice became distant
The butterflies and bitterness

They left me

And time has a way of taking its own sweet self
Then the next thing you know I'm putting your love on the shelf

Now all of those things that name used to mean
Are merely an echo now
Those feelings died when I died
Like the part of me that once held you

They left me
Track Name: Come Drive
It's cold and dark in Tennessee
You're waiting for some light to shine
Well baby, same with me
I care not for what I do or what I see
Fear has guided me into complacency
So come on, tell me

Come drive with me
If we stay this rain could last all day
Or we could ride away until it's clear
Come drive with me
With you I swear this car is growing wings
Come fly
Come drive

I know you're cold and lonely too
Hope for lack of gray on better days
Is helping pull you through
The search for truth, it's nothing new
But it all seems so damn findable
When it's just me and you

Come drive with me...

They'll all say that we lost our minds
While they're busy wasting theirs away
We'll crash down in the deep blue sea
Climb the mountains, storm the trees
We'll find our souls anywhere but here

Come drive with me...

Come fly
Track Name: Weight of the World
Stuck inside this melee
You wanna throw it all away
Just to see what you'd be
If you could let yourself go free

Don't let 'em kick you around
Once you're up they wanna knock you down
Darling please you're staring down the sun
But you won't look away

The weight of the world
ain't just on one girl
So let it go child

Sometimes you're going nowhere
You're doin' all the things you think you gotta say, but
Everybody's got their way with you
You can have your way with them

The weight of the world
