    This is me doing my thing a couple of years ago... I wrote a lot of these songs when I first moved to Nashville. They cover a 4 or 5 year span where I was experimenting with folk and pop as a viable twain. Some love songs, some about growing up, some inspired by films... It runs the gamut.. Hope you enjoy...

Track Name: In Case You Haven't
Brush your teeth, wash your face,
Don't you stay up way too late
Cause you've got to get up early in the morning

Eat your peas, clean your plate
Give some thanks for what you ate
Cause other kids are starving in Japan

In case you haven't noticed
I've always kept you safe and sound
Right from the day I made you
Until you grew your wings to fly out of this sacred town
That you call home

Be safe on your drive home,
Make sure to leave your cell-phone on,
You've gotta give me a call when you're coming in

Remember it's a crazy world you gotta
Hold out for the right girl
Look out for love, you can't miss it when it comes

In Case You Haven't...

I know my loving family's kept me grounded
With strength and hope and love
While I'm singin' all my songs you know they're the
Closest thing to heaven that I'm ever gonna see
You know, the kind of love that's been there all along

In Case You Haven't...
Track Name: Know You Do
Do you remember when we used to talk baby
Of gettin’ out of this place
I know you do, I know you do

Do you remember all those things I said baby
To put that smile on your face
It stayed for days, I know you do

You never know till you try it once baby
Just let it roll of the tongue
Three little words, I won’t peek now baby
It looks like no one’s around
Maybe just to hear the way it sounds
I know you do

How many times must you think a thing baby
Before you know something’s true?
You need a clue, I think you do

Cause I’ve been wonderin’ when we’ll take that step baby
Before you say how you feel
Instead of something new, we could be something real
I know you do

You never know till you try it once baby…

I know you do
Cause it takes two to dance
Track Name: Unwhole
This day’s been a mirror,
Everything’s the same only backwards
Took the carpool lane this morning
To break me down and say, “I miss you”

Cause I’ve been beaten by all my daily games
And without you here it’s so much less the same

Come and be here with me baby
Come and make me feel at home
Cause without you with me baby
I’m completely unwhole

This life is blowin’ by me,
Just like a bullet train only faster
Like alcohol can numb you know comfort does the same till it kills you

Cause I’ve been beaten by all my old mistakes
And lookin’ round here no one feels the same

Every now and then I need you comin’ round to remind me
Just what it is to know and feel, and live inside this thing that we call love
I need rest from my own mind, but till then I'll bide my time
Soon I'll have the one that knows me by my side..
Track Name: Be
She can scream
Louder than the voice of reason
And never can escape the feeling that it’s all a waste of time

And I agree,
Although there are certain implications
I don’t think the subtleties of third-world nations will affect her heart and mine

She’s got this crazy idea that
She’s not gonna remember how to breathe
When all she’s gotta do is be
She wants nothing left than perfect and
I know she’s more than worth it
It takes a lot to please a man like me
But all she’s got to do is be

In the park,
She accidentally squished some flowers
I had to calm her down for hours to let her know they’ll be alright

And in the dark,
She can be a big romantic
That is until a foot or hand slips up and hits me in the eye
Yeah, but that's alright cause

Someone left her long ago
He had no right to treat her so
It’s not occurred to her just yet
Those expectations left unmet
They’ve got nothing to do with me…
Track Name: Where's Yours?
This heart of mine is hanging on the sleeve of my old jacket
And it’s been there for as long as I could feel
I know sometimes to leave it there’s to lose it
But It's the only way I’ve come to find it’s real

It’s been that way since I was young and able
And it'll likely be this way until I die.
It makes the call to love and lose a little,
Till it's bleeding itself dry...

Where’s yours? Tell me, where’s yours?
You’ve got a heart, now show me what it’s for.
And if you want to see me coming 'round here anymore
Tell me where’s yours, tell me where’s yours.

I know that you’ve been eyeing mine for months now
You show all the signs that tell me just that much
All the while you kept your heart in a museum
Where I can look, but never touch.. I could never touch

You live this life like everyone’s against you
You plot and steal and then plan your escape
I refuse to be one of your casualties
And you’ll always miss the one that got away

It’s one I’d let you borrow if I thought I’d get it back
But I’ve seen enough of you to know a man like me can't plan for things like that
Plan for things like that…
Track Name: Wooden Boy
Love is something that you make
Not something that you take
And that’s bringing you to tears

Love, like a drifter rollin’ on
It’s here and then it’s gone
And then lonesome’s got your years

You say he’s the one for you
But that’s not for you to choose

Can’t wake him up and make him up
Like just another one of your toys
So set him free or let him be
He just can’t be your wooden boy
Wooden Boy

Strings, you can tie them all around
anything to hold him down
You know that boy that's free to roam

Wings, you can clip them all away
Anything to make him stay
And keep that man from finding home
Track Name: Next Big Fix
You finally figured out, now, what you’ve been doing wrong
You’ve been burnin’ up the nights, now, for too long
You went to call all your friends but you’ve got none
You’ve got to go and get it now before it’s all gone

Anything is better than the next big fix for you.
You're burning out doing everything you wanna do.
You'd give it all just to feel something true.
Anything is better than the next big fix.

Baby doll with your low rise and new shoes
Baby doll wants the cover of the late news
Baby doll with your fresh painted tattoos
Doin’ things with that body like there’s nothin’ to lose
Out on the prowl just to use and be used
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 be free

Don't let 'em kick you around
Cause once you're up they wanna knock you down
Darlin please, you're staring down the sun
But you won't look away

The weight of the world ain't just for one girl
So let it go child
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've gotta say but
Everybody's got their way with you
But you can have your way with them
