about

This album was a labor of love. I worked on it and wrestled with what tracks, how many, what order. Than i realised, getting it out there is more important than the other stuff. So, it is with all my heart and soul i pour into these words and notes that i present my songs to you. Thanks for listening, and supporting my dream.

Track Name: Movin
time to get up and shake it all away
dust collecting while the clocks ticking
kick it up now cause somethings gotta give
whispers and murmurs all causing commotion
sitting and waiting won't do anything
after the sunrise before it's setting
words are gone and steadily spoken
but nothings done and it's time for action

moving, movin, movin, on

being apart of being connected
to divide all the separation
come together to dram a final line
see where it goes to the other side
take a hold of what is mine
but you grab on to the other side
i won't let go but will i fight
if it comes down to that you'll see i'm right

movin, movin, movin on

give a little
get so much more
makes you feel better
thats what it's for
give a little
give a little
Track Name: Tomorrows for dreamers
resting my weary head, but only for a second my hands in front of my face looking for magic in them
today is coming so fast, can't keep ahead at all
i know it's all in the try that makes it all worthwhile

tomorrows for dreamers
today is for the now
get up off the pillow
we'll make it through somehow

lying awake thinking, where do i go from here
one foot in front of the other, closer to the near
a smile can turn the light on, a laugh can build so high
when it all seems so distant, a mile is just a mile

tomorrows for dreamers
today is for the now
get up off the pillow
we'll make it through somehow
we'll make it through somehow
Track Name: Shimmering
take achance on me, i'm a loser
losing all those things made me a winner
gonna take my chances again
blew on those dice and got'em rollin
now the cards are in the air
catching kisses i was blowing
with the chips all on the table
took an empty cup to overflowing

out in the sun
i'm shimmering
what is better then love
i'm shimmering

reached out my hand when it was empty
what you put in it was a friend
now the chill runs up my arm
where all that pain used to go
learning to laugh is quite a lesson
when you can't even smile inside
now i see what i was missing
so i sit back and enjoy the ride

out in the sun
i'm shimmering
what is better then love
i'm shimmering
Track Name: When i get there
Gonna Take that river down to the tip of the sea
gonna trip all over that sound til it answers me
carry my question for miles on a heavy tread
when i hear them all spoke out seems that burden left
now i'm gonna dive where it goes, follow that sound
cause it brings me back to myself, i suppose

when i get there all i can see
from top to bottom
the sea was me

gonna take that less known road for the rest of my life
gonna see if it really goes, closer to the right
look at every stone every tree, all along the way
not so unlike all the other, from what i can see
so i guess it's not the destination, but the journey

when i get there all i can see
a million miles more
ahead of me

gonna take that lesson learned, away with me
cause i know now what it's for
thats for giving
Track Name: down here
it's been awhile now since i've had a dream
sleepings easy when you have everything
still i let myself paint my own design
full of shadows and places left to hide
on a dark night i look up at the moon
with all i got i still get through

down here
down here

got a pocket full of pennies inside
theres a wishing well thats just out of sight
hope old Abe was listening when i threw him in
to say what i said when i was wishing
as long as i breathe i'll give another try
with all i got i still get by

down here
down here
Track Name: My Heaven
cut myself wide open, blood is filled with poison
stretching out of my mind, healing on the dark side
reaching out for a candle, ran out of sunlight
hurt like matches burning, salve of icy warning

i'm going out onto my way
and when i'm down i'm better anyway
just take it in, hold it out, and pray
just for an hour it's all ok

dust off my patience, been to long awhile
many colors in this pattern, all faded now
flicker and glimmer, quite a simple show
in an instant it all changes, leaving only holes

seems like somehow i'm home again
i click my heels and wake in bed
deeper the water the sweeter the safe
and now my heaven is not far away
Track Name: 2-Step
Walking barefoot down the street
got no flowers under my feet
sunshine sets my face aglow
and the worlds like one big pillow
got no place i'm walking to
got no reason for no shoes
just wanna smile and take it in
cause in the world i'm back again

wanna 2-step
in your blue dress
we can get down
twirlin ourselves around

nice to see you my old friend
how has everything been
shook his hand and said good-bye
smiled and looked up at that blue sky
seems my feet have picked up rhythm
and my hands in tune with them
now the world is my guitar
and songs just pour out of my heart

wanna 2-step
in your blue dress
we can get down
twirlin ourselves around
Track Name: Going away
Hush now the nighttimes here
and the windows are open my dear
should we let the moonlight in
sing to the crickets boughing
its not about the evenings grace
just a walk in the dark with my dear
i love how your kiss heals me
somethings i can never tell

i'm going away for awhile
but i'll be better when i return
take a picture of that smile
with just my finger

did you let the deep water in
covered all of me thats broken
swim to the edge to be free
careful of the fragile me
close your eyes and let go
don't be afraid i'll catch you
your the sweetness of my dreams
still hope that you will see me

i'm going away for awhile
but i'll be better when i return
take a picture of that smile
with just my finger
with just my finger
Track Name: Waiting
Trouble always seems to be pouring in on me
as sure as night falls down the deeper that i sink
to see the brighter side where i can go and be free
when i'm left alone you know thats where i'll be

waiting for those hands to come
and carry me
feels like my back is broken
and i am weak
just then hope walks in
so sweetly
sings me a lulla-bye
and i'm off to sleep

I'm watching the colors come and change the leaves
all bright and beautiful the way that it must be
a song is waiting out there just for me to sing
i hope that the words that come will bring me peace

waiting for those hands to come
and carry me
feels like my back is broken
and i am weak
just then hope walks in
so sweetly
sings me a lulla-bye
and i'm off to sleep
and i'm off to sleep
and i'm off to sleep
