New Lyrics

How will this help?
Put love on the shelf
Forget that it's there
Take one giant step
Try all you want 
To run from your fear
'Cause when you get back
I still will be here

Run..
From what you know and the people you love
Run..
From the changes you see in the way life was
Run..
Until at last that one day comes
Run..

Hard to believe
You'll ever stay
When all you do
Is walk away
But brick by brick
I'll tear down the wall
And stand behind
To break your fall
So go on..

Run..
From what you know and the people you love
Run..
From the changes you see in the way life was
Run..
Until at last that one day comes
Run..

Find the heart
To do your part
We have no chance
Unless you start
Love the good
Enjoy the fun
Resist the urge
To go and..

Run..
From what you know and the people you love
Run..
From the changes you see in the way life was
Run..
Until at last that one day comes
Run..


I want to figure out some sort of outro but I'm not sure what yet.

Lyrics Done Maybe?

I've added on to a few lyrics that I came up with last week and I think I might be done with it. I'm not sure yet.. seems a little melodramatic.


How do I think of the right thing to say?
What do I use to make the words come out right?
It's all in my head and yet it's a struggle
Putting words on the page is a constant fight

I thought this would be much easier to do
Take words from my heart and write a song for you
A constant shade of blue
Always piercing through
Why can't I just write a song for you?

It seems like all I do is make it harder on myself
I should focus on what I can do and not on someone else
But anytime I try to say
The way you make me feel
I wish that someone else could write it
So then their words I could steal

I thought this would be much easier to do
Take words from my heart and write a song for you
A constant shade of blue
Always piercing through
Why can't I just write a song for you?

These words don't do justice to the person you are
But it's all I've been able to come up with so far
So give me a chance to do good by the rest
And believe when I say..
I gave it my best
I gave it my best
I gave it my best
I give you my best.


I think writing a guitar part and a melody for this one is going to be tough. I'm not used to writing such wordy pieces. Most of my stuff is fairly simple and not too difficult so this should be a challenge.

New Lyrics

Days go by and still it seems
We're living in a world that doesn't cater to dreams
All they are teaching
All they are preaching
Is to dream up dreams but never really reach them
How can we win when all our future leaders
Only care if they're biters
Only care if they're bleeders
We have to wake up and smell the proverbial roses
Stop caring who's original and who are the posers
Only when we find faith can we truly be free
Break through the shackles that bind you and bind me


..just a start..

Headshots

Trying to decide which two headshots to choose. Any help would be sweet!

I narrowed it down from 75 to 8...

New Lyrics

Not sure what I think..


How do I think of the right thing to say?
What do I use to make the words come out right?
It's all in my head and yet it's a struggle
Putting words on the page is a constant fight

I thought this would be much easier to do
Take words from my heart and write a song for you

Roommate's Lullabye

Just adding on to Jesse's brilliance last night..


Well the time
It is for sleeping
But we're not going to be
We are staying 
Up late a-talking
'Cause we are the best of friends
We don't care 
What lies before us
When the morning sun rises
Be it class
Or work or nothing
All that matters is now
Because while time
It is for sleeping
We will not say goodnight
For this friendship
Is eternal
A bond for all time


I'm sure more will be added. This feels like the kind of song that all of us will contribute 5 verses, and that sounds perfect to me.


Such a funky song..

Flannel? Cardigans? Flannel cardigans?!?

Started writing this awhile back and suddenly felt the need to finish it..


I'm thinking of something
Never thought before
It would cover up my outsides
And can't be bought in any store
We would be best friends
Go everywhere together
Until the end
Together forever
Me and my cardigan

Wrapped in the comfort
Of your woolen thread
You'd keep me warm in the morning
Straight through until I go to bed
We would be best friends
Go everywhere together
Until the end
Together forever
Me and my cardigan

The question you might be
Asking one another
Is what makes this flannel
Greater than the others
Well I'm not sure
If this answer you can handle
But here it goes
This cardigan is flannel

We would be best friends
Go everywhere together
Until the end
Together forever
Me and my cardigan
Me and my cardigan
Me and my flannel cardigan
Me and my flannel cardigan


Rough draft but I like it so far.
