I am going to stick to the ever-so cliche answer of "everything". It is the truth though, every second of my life goes into every song that I write.

Track Name: Blue Eyed Butterfly
The good love of someone new was all I needed to get me through this slump I'm in, and get me back on my feet again. Now i'm a new man without my fears feeling stronger than I felt in the past three years of living and loving and laughing my days and my nights away. And now that I know you can I tell you how I've waited for you for sometime Ive had your voice upon my mind for days and weeks and nights at times....

Hey Jo, what do you know about your ecstasy
Are you the new love drug or is passion getting the best of me
The rest of me agrees with what I see, I think that you and me should be
Complicated Lovers

A good tune and a bit to drink, was all I needed to make me think and contemplate, her recipe to infatuate.
My blue sky-eyed butterfly, she blinks her wings two times and I am captivated, celebrate my soul. And now that I know you can I tell you how I feel, I think that I can fly like delta sky like turpentine you get me high oh my so high...

Open all your doors tonight, be yourself....it feels alright....

Hey Jo, what do you know about your ecstasy
Are you the new love drug or is my heart getting the best of me
The rest of me agrees with what I see, I think that you and me should be
Complicated Lovers
Track Name: Angels
Angels

With every little word that you say
I can see you slipping away
Everybody's coming closer, telling me that this is over
And I can see you slipping away

But I've seen angels, turn into sinners and I've seen summers turn into winters
I'm singing please take me home tonight

With every little thing that you do
Another little lie that comes true
And everything I knows deluded
You make me feel like I'm secluded
And I can see you slipping away

With every little thing that I hear
Another thing that I come to fear
We used to be so pretty baby
And now I barely know you lately
And I can see you slipping away
Track Name: If I Were An Artist
If I were an artist

I could paint you red, like the passion you feel
It might not be colorful, but at least it'd be real

And I could paint you green, like the envy you know, when you're all alone at night
With nowhere to go

And I could paint you grey, to show how you're empty
To show how you don't care
So the world can all see

And I could paint you clear,
Id make you graceful
Id make you beautiful
Cuz that's what you are

And I could paint you taupe
Because they say that its soothing
But youre like a drug to me
That could use some abusing

And I could paint you gold
To show you're immortal
Would that make you honest?
Would it make you sincere?

Scarlet and Clover, all the things we talked about
Violet and green and the world in between
The grey skies in your blue eyes, broken hearts are all that you know

I could be clear
Yeah you could see through me
And I could be beautiful
Just to be yours

Just to be.

I could paint you clear,
Id make you graceful
Id make you beautiful
Cuz that's what you are

And I could be clear, and I could be graceful
I swear Id be colorful just to be yours

If I were an artist, then I could be yours
Track Name: Don't Go (Feat. Caitlin Hart)
They say you don't know what you got till its gone, but baby I know we could prove them all wrong
Too much of a good thing can spoil what you've got, I thought that was right now I know that its not
These walls keep closing in on me
The tears fall as I watch you leave
Baby don't go...

I'll be the candle and you be the flame
We'll dance in the fire, love, and sing through the pain
Were strangely connected....like passion and fear
With a love like December and the truth like a mirror
My heart beats faster through my skin
Touch me tender, break me in
Baby don't go....

I know this love affair is not what we need
But I'd give up everything to just feel you breathe
I'm missing you, begging you, come back to me
Baby don't go...
Track Name: Daddy's Eyes
They say shes got her daddy's eyes
She hides em well behind her mommas smile
They say she knows shes beautiful

They say shes got her daddy's heart
And she cant hide it when there's nowhere else to start
They say she knows shes beautiful
But that wont get her anywhere today

And she says daddy I know your listening
Daddy I know your there
Cuz Ive been talking with angels
And they tell me that you still care

They say shes got her daddy's pride
She walks around all day with her head held up so high
They say she knows shes beautiful
But that wont get her anywhere today

But now shes growing up shes moving on she needs someone to tell her why
The grass is green, the sky is blue, it's all ok I'm here for you
Shes growing up she moving out she needs someone so she screams and shouts she says
Daddy can, daddy can, you hear me?

And I say baby I know you're listening, baby I know you're there
Cuz Ive been talking with angels up here, and I tell them to tell you that I still care.

They say shes got her daddy's charm
Yeah she could make the lights on Broadway shine and she could truly be a star
They say she knows shes beautiful
But that wont get her anywhere, today.
Track Name: Old T-Shirt
Its been three weeks since I've heard from you and my bed sheets are screaming cuz they miss you too, its looking like I'm sleeping alone again tonight. I've got a clean slate waiting with your name on the chalk, come over now baby get me outta the dark, I'm laying here playing solitaire hoping I see you. And I'm hoping that your coming back tomorrow, because I'm too in love with you to ever let this go, I've got your old Tee shirt and your mini skirt, waiting for you to come back home I need you here, oh yes my dear, so come on home.

I wrote ten love songs with your name in the title, prayed to Jesus Mary Joseph every man in the bible. I'm wishing on a star even though its only noon.
I'm watching reruns of our favorite shows, my stomachs been hurting like nobody knows;
I'm jumping up every time I hear my phone ring. Because when youre in love, like I'm in love, then everything is not enough. And I'm hoping that your coming back tomorrow, cuz I'm too in love with you to ever let this go, I've got your old t shirt and your mini skirt waiting for you to come back home I need you here, oh yes my dear, so come on home.
Track Name: I'D Give You The Moon
You were always changing clothes, your torn sundress, your panty hose
Crumpled up upon my floor
And you'd abandoned all your dreams gave them up or so it seemed, for the chance to be my girl.

And the world wont ever change if you only stay the same.

Id give you the moon if I could
Id give you the stars if I could
Id give you my heart if you would take me as I am

You were always switching roles, now you love me now you don't
Like a lover in disguise
And I was always chasing dreams, without an end or so it seemed, but I guess that's how it goes.

And the world wont ever change if you only stay the same


Id give you the moon if I could
Id give you the stars if I could
Id give you my heart if you would take me as I am

And if only stars could shine as bright as you and I
Maybe then Id grow some wings and I could learn to fly

Id give you the moon if I could
Id give you the stars if I could
Id give you my heart if you would take me as I am
Track Name: Mama's Only Child
When I was a young boy, my mother did say son when you grow up it will all be ok :)

And now that i'm older I truly believe that nobodies perfect despite what you see

"son when your world comes crumbling down, smile cuz you're not alone"

Because every one breaks and everyone burns and everyone loses and misses a turn Everyone crumbles once in a while, but keep your head up, you're your mama's only child

Don't take it for granted, this little life that you lead
for while there may not be glamor in all that you see...
To live is a blessing, to love is a dream
one day when you're older, you'll see what I mean

and when you realize that life all works out in the end
you will smile, cuz you're not alone

Because every one breaks and everyone burns and everyone loses and misses a turn
Everyone crumbles once in a while, but keep your head up, you're your mama's only child
Track Name: Broken Hearts And Fairy Tales
Life is so frustrating, and its getting over rated
A broken heart, a fairy tale its all the same to me
But I don't wanna be just waiting patiently, for life to come and take me away

So I'm sitting here in silence and I'm pretty sure that violence
Is the only form of love Ill ever know
But I guess that goes to show that even those filled up with hope, have less than you can tell meets the eye

And you lead me on and on and on again you do
You lead me on and on and on again, I hope to god this hurts you too

I wish I never loved you
I wish I didn't care
Life is so degrading and I'm pretty sure I hate it
I gotta get myself out of this town
Before I'm broken down lying shattered on the ground
For all the world to see who I am.

I wish I never loved you
Track Name: The Best Love Song I Ever Wrote
The Best Love Song I Ever Wrote

I started this song at 2 am on a lonely Sunday night
I wanted to make things easier I wanted to make things
I'm hungry for a midnight snack you know yeah I'm hungry for you
But kitchens closed girl yeah I know, so whats this boy to do

You are everything, everything I hoped for
You are everything, everything I need.

But when tomorrow comes, will you be there, should I even try do you even care?
Do you know how far Id go, just to keep the pain from you, oh girl I would do anything for you.

I been watching you sleep for a night or two and I know I'm on your mind
I see it in your eyes you know hes running out of time.
I talk to you for hours without saying a word.
Here's the best love song that I ever wrote, hope its the best you've ever heard.
