about

I love to demo songs. It allows me to try on all of my musical hats, and inevitably reminds me that I can't wear them all! The drumming and audio engineering I'd be happy to part with, but sometimes I'm the only guy around at 2am willing to record. Here you find me with my old Fostex 8-track recorder, Zoom Rhythm Track drum machine, and a guitar amp simulator known as the Pod. The original Pod still rocks! Some days I didn't feel like committing to mapping out the drum parts, which can be a very tedious task if you've ever attempted that sort of thing. The end result is a nice little collection of songs that never saw the light of day due to a few unfinished lyrics. Enjoy!

Track Name: Crawling Back To You
I wonder how, I wonder where
Who's with you now and if you're still there
I toss and I turn at night
Cause I can't stop dreaming of you
And you're barely in my life
But if I dream it true

I heard that you
You wanna say you're sorry
And if it's true
It'll only make me crazy for you
Do you wanna stay together?
Cause if you do
You know I'll come crawling back to you

So incomplete, so insecure
These wounds are deep, but we will endure
And it's good to begin when you're down
When the whole thing's crumbled in two
From this failure begins my life
Or does it end with you?

I heard that you
You wanna say you're sorry
And if it's true
It'll only make me crazy for you
Do you wanna stay together?
Cause if you do
You know I'll come crawling back to you

Crawling back to you
Crawling back to you
Crawling back to you

I toss and I turn at night
Cause I can't stop dreaming of you
And you're barely in my life
But if I dream it true

I heard that you
You wanna say you're sorry
And if it's true
It'll only make me crazy for you
Do you wanna stay together?
Cause if you do
You know I'll come crawling back to you

Do you wanna say you're sorry?
Crawling back to you
It'll only make me crazy for you
Crawling back to you
Do you wanna stay together?
Crawling back to you
You know I'll come crawling back to you

I keep crawling back to you
I keep crawling back to you
Crawling back to you

Crawling back to you
I keep crawling back to you
Track Name: Hey Mary
What is an aeroplane, how did it learn to fly.
Where did it come from and how did it get so high.
Where does the sky begin, in the heart of an ocean blue.
How do we get there and what will we see if we do.

You better wake up, cause only for a moment we're alive. You better change some, shine a new reflection to the sky.

Cause wherever we go divided by ego, you've got to choose your side of the line.
So hey Mother Mary it's so arbitrary, you've got your reasons and I've got mine.

Where is the real reward, what are we striving for.
The closer that we get all we are wanting is more.
And pray, pray we get a closer look.
To right the wrongs that we've mistook, and finally see where creation lies.

You better wise up, cause only for a moment we're alive. You better change some, shine a new reflection to the sky.

Cause wherever we go we're guided by ego, you've got to have your slice of the pie.
So hey Virgin Mary it's so arbitrary, you lost your Jesus and I found mine.

And so hey Mary, don't turn around.
Oh hey Mary don't turn around.
You've got to open my eyes.

If you can imagine it.
If you can imagine it.
If you can imagine it.
If you can imagine it.
Track Name: All I Need (featuring Mike Garrigan)
Soaking in a warm breeze, lying in the sand
Underneath a palm tree, working on a tan
That's where you found me, I didn't have a care
Slippin' on a cool dream, all alone and unaware

Now you're making it hard on me
You say I'm leaving it all on you
And now you're taking it out on me
Like I took it out on you

Cause baby you're all that I need
You walked into my fantasy
Baby you're all that I know
And baby it's hard to believe
But you're my one you're my everything
Baby you're all that I know I can't let you go

Deeper than the ocean, higher than the sky
Darker than a bad dream, deeper than your eyes
That's the way I love you, you know I can't let go
Everything that you do moves me down, down, down to my soul

Now you're taking it out on me
You say I'm leaving it all on you
And there's nothing that I can do
But take it out on you

But baby you're all that I need
You walked into my fantasy
Baby you're all that I know
And baby it's hard to believe
But you're my one you're my everything
Baby you're all that I know I can't let you go

I can dream
I can dream
I can dream
I can dream of you

And every morning, everything I do
Every single moment, everything's for you
You're better than a sunrise, you're better than a friend
I'm waiting on a sunset, so we can do it all again

But baby you're all that I need
You walked into my fantasy
Baby you're all that I know
And baby it's hard to believe
But you're my one you're my everything
Baby you're all that i know I can't let you go

I can dream
I can dream
I can dream
I can dream of you
Track Name: Jackie And Sammy
Jackie and Sammy
They crossed the line
When no one was watching, they kissed in the night
But out on the highway, where everything's right
There's no one to talk to, but no one to fight

And if you find someone in this world
That you cannot change
You better take a good look at yourself
Ain't life so strange?

And stay close to now
Stay close to now
Stay close to now

Jackie and Sammy
They drew a crowd
Rumors and whispers coming in loud
But out on the highway
It's sugar and spice
So roll down your windows and take in the night air

And if you find someone in that girl
That you cannot shake
You better take a good look at yourself
Ain't life so great

And stay close to now
Stay close to now
Stay close to now

I'm out of my head again
Under the stars over my bed
It must have been written somewhere in time
That heartbeats entwine
I'm at my wits end
You stole my heart
But hearts beat again

And when you find someone in this world
Someone you cannot share or be without
Ain't life so great

Stay close to now
Stay close to now
Stay close to now

Jackie and Sammy

Track Name: Welcome To The World
Catch me I'm on fire
I'm your dying young
Can you spare a drink of water, to cool my burning tongue
Catch me I'm on fire
I'm your dying star
Cast a wish upon me, and I'll burn you where you are

Catch me I'm on fire
I'm your dying truth
I'm your poor man Lazarus, in the poverty of youth
Catch me I'm on fire
I'm your unborn sin
I'm a blaze of Autumn, I will not return again

Welcome to the world child, love is laughter
Pain and fear are what will come after
Welcome to the world child
Who's the master of your fate
The guide of your travels
Son

Catch me I'm on fire
Welcome to the world child
Catch me I'm on fire
Welcome to the world child
Catch me I'm on fire
Welcome to the world child
Catch me I'm on fire
Welcome to the world child

I'm on fire
I'm on fire
