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: Loved By You
I woke up this morning bout' 7:15 with a smile on my face from a pretty fine dream about you, I keep thinking about you.
I'm half asleep and I'm half in love and I have to see if I can get me some of that pretty little kiss of yours.

So I think as I drink and I sing my songs and I feel like it wont be very long until I'm tangled up in you.
I light a smoke tell a joke and it makes you smile and you know I know that you like my style you're just so beautiful serene...just like a dream.....and I want to be loved by you.

My head knows that its probably wrong to even sit around and write a silly song about you, but I keep thinking about you. You know you love just sitting there with those little blonde streaks in your sun brown hair, its nice to know that someones been thinking about you....

I want to be loved by you.
Track Name: Ten Million Thoughts
Theres ten million stars in the sky
and I dont really know whats making them shine
but everytime I think about how beautiful they are....they get a little brighter

Theres ten million thoughts in my mind
Each and every one is trying to define me
and everytime I think about the shadows of my life....they get a little lighter

Theres all sorts of theories on "why"
but noone reaaaaally knows what happens when we die
I don't really care if there's a heaven or a hell, as long as were together

because I live to love you
Track Name: Take It Easy
Johnny was a po lease man from erie pa
spent his whole life talking never hearing what anyone had to say
when it came to the law johnny knew he could never be second bested
You gotta laugh its just a little bit funny that he got cardiac arrested
hey! take it easy


Jason is a business man from the right side of the tracks
spent his whole life fightin for the dollers never taking the time to relax
he was born then he died and was buried there was never much in beetween
you gotta laugh, itts just a little bit funny that the grass on his grave was green
Hey! take it easy

Now us we are the craziest guys that you may think youve ever met
we all smile all the time never worry, never have problems or regrets
Were not crazy we just know something that noone else really knows
the sky is blue, I love you, and thats just the way that it goes
Track Name: Minor Complications
Looks like we're headed for a sticky situation
but what is love without some minor complications
frustrations killin me you're thrillin me with every new sensation
baby you're my favorite vibration…

I, I am the guy with the love on my sleeve, yeah the love that you need to get through the night
Why, why even try to deny what you think have a seat have a drink have a moment with me and let's forget the reasons why we shouldn't be alone together.

Looks like we're headed for a sticky situation
but what is love without some minor complications
frustrations killin me you're thrillin me with every new sensation
baby you're my favorite vibration…
Track Name: Life is Beautiful
Ocean come and swallow me up
Drink me out to sea and spit me up
Make me realize I’m very small
Make me realize there’s no problems at all

Life is beautiful
Every image is a miracle to me
Every star that I see in the sky
Oh pictures and symphonies
Every color in the masterpiece of life is beautiful

Starry night cascade into my sky
Darken the horizons in my mind
Make me realize I’m not alone
Make me realize that this earth is more than just my home

Life is beautiful
Every breathe I take’s a miracle to me
Every rhythm and beat of my heart
Oh pictures and symphonies
Every accidental harmony in life is beautiful

Sunrise cast a sparkle in my eye
Illuminate the earth and make me cry
Make me realize that life is real
Realize I’m not the only one who feels alive

Life is beautiful
Every moment is a miracle to me
Every new memory in my brain it’s insane all these things
Oh the pictures and the symphonies
Every beautiful catastrophe in life is beautiful
So beautiful
It’s beautiful
Track Name: 24 On The Floor
Sleeping on the floor in the middle of nowhere
counting all the money that I may never have
Living off the hand and the kindness of strangers
defining days with my drinks and my drags

and I will be fine
I will survive
because I am alive

Sleeping on a beach in an awkward september
counting all the grains of the sand that I see
Living for a dream that I barely remember
thinking of a moment that could never ever be

and I will be fine
I will survive
because I am alive

Sleeping on a swing in a farmhouse in acton
Writing all the songs that I may never sing
Thinking about my life and I draw my conclusion
"everything is defined by the love that it brings"

and I will be fine
because I am alive
I will survive
because I am alive
Track Name: Soldiers Kiss Your Mothers
We start off young
and then we grow old
miss "educated"
with the lies that we're told

We learn to love
before they teach us to hate
I think Ill learn to fly before I learn to relate.

I refuse to believe
that all the love is with
the birds and the bees

were getting closer to it every day
soldiers, kiss your mothers and put your rifles away

And everything Ill ever
need in my life
I got it on the day I was born

A set of senses to explore this earth
and the love I need to know that its pure


I refuse to believe
that all the love is with
the birds and the bees

were getting closer to it every day
soldiers, kiss your mothers and put your rifles away

We need to open up our eyes and get back to the start
Stop thinking with our minds and start thinking with our hearts

So take a moment with a stranger today
Give them a smile and throw a problem away

forget the munny and the bills and the rent
quit making dollars and start making some sense

I refuse to believe
that all the love is with
the birds and the bees

were getting closer to it every day
soldiers, kiss your mothers and put your rifles away
Track Name: Song For Someone
I could feel it in my bones, when she called me on the phone
take a breathe and swallow hard, cause her bodies not alone.
who am I deciding who can live or die
it isn't right
it isn't right

Im so sorry all I ever said was goodbye

take a walk to clear my mind, but you're with me all the time
I'll never know what you would be and it tears me up inside
Does life start with a soul or with a heart?
I'll never know
I'll never know

Im so sorry all I ever said was goodbye

So if you can hear me now, I'll do my best to make you proud
I'm sure you're somewhere in the stars, So Id better sing this loud

Im so sorry all I ever said was goodbye
Track Name: Baby Unicorn
Take a breath and step outside
the air is calm and cool tonight and I am breathing here with you
I know it hurts and thats ok, the world keeps turning every day
and we will smile again

My friend, my lover, my only believer
you're my everything
you are my masterpiece

Baby unicorn
I think I know I swore
we would be the ones who made it to the end
Baby unicorn
I know your heart is torn
but I promise we will be in love again

Take a breath and dream tonight
of kings and queens and mysteries and I will watch over you
I know you're scared and that's ok
but don't lose your smile its a symphony to me
and I don't want to stop listening

My friend, my lover, my only believer
you're my everything
you are the truth to me

Baby unicorn
I think I know I swore
we would be the ones who made it to the end
Baby unicorn
I know your heart is torn
but I promise we will be in love again
yeah I promise we will be in love again
Track Name: Arabella
You could be many things, precious pearls or diamond rings
your beauty's just a story in my head
You could be an astronaut, daffodils or forget-me-nots
but I hope this plot gets thicker as we go
and I know you're blushing while I'm singing to you..

Arabella do you think that I could tell ya that I wanna spend a
minute or a moment just to see if I'm the only one who feels
you when I'm dreaming? I'd hate to be the reason that your heart breaks down tonight
I hope I'm right with who I made you up to be, you could be oh so many things

You could be a drama queen, or the centerfold in a magazine
an artist with a sparkle in your eye
You could be the chamomile that makes me sleep and makes me feel
warmed up from the inside of my soul
I'm cold, so I'm wishing while I'm singing to you

Maybe I will never be the clever guy who lives to see
a way to make it to your heart
But writing songs for pretty girls who serve me fries and serve me chills
it's who I have been from the start….
Track Name: Realize
If I were a blind man
I could finally see
how beautiful the world is
that's happening in front of me

If I were a rich man
I would gladly trade
all my gold and silver
for a smile on someone's face

If I were the wise man
I would surely spend
all my waking hours
Answering the worlds questions

But I am just a song man
With my stories of truth
We are all each other
From every me to you

And when we finally realize whats going on inside our minds,
There will be love
There will be truth
and we will be free....
Track Name: Sandcastles In The Rain
This is new, and this is real
Passion burns and now I feel alive
Summer storms and serenades carry on the starlight waves tonight
Oh the world is beautiful
I'm happy here with you

Because we belong right where we are
I'm better now you are in my heart
Were watching the world disintegrate
Sand-castles in the rain, but I'll be fine
The ocean's on my side

Walk the shore and take my hand
Telling secrets to the sand and I
You're blue-eyed angel bliss, a kiss from you is more than just a kiss
Just because we fell on love
Doesn't make it wrong

Because we belong right where we are
I'm better now you are in my heart
Were watching the world disintegrate
Sand-castles in the rain, but I'll be fine
The ocean's on my side
Track Name: Friends And Lovers
Well I've had friends and I've had oh so many lovers
I've shared my secrets, and I've shared my covers
with every girl in town
I've been around, yeah I've been around

I've made mistakes and taken one too many chances
Played the fool in all of life's circumstances
thought about leaving town, but whats the point, so I'll stick around

And when my time on this earth comes to an end
I'll look back and send a smile to all my friends
and I'll say I'm happy that you're by my side

Well I've lost friends and I've lost oh so many lovers
From sharing my secrets, underneath those covers
With every girl in town
I've been around
Yeah I've been around...
Track Name: Take Me Away
I slept away the morning
and half the afternoon
Man, California's killing me
Like a snow angel in June

I really should get out of here
before I go insane
but I'm addicted to a lot of things
besides your cheap cocaine

All strung out on a bathroom floor with a girl named Kate, she begs for more of me
She feels so wrong but tastes so right, I beg I plead we break tonight. I do….but I think of you

Somebody please take me away from here, I'm starting to break I fear
and I need to go home
Somebody please make me feel whole again, I'm starving for innocence
and I just need to scream

Take me away…

All strung out on a bathroom floor with a girl named Kate, she begs for more of me
She tastes like rain and kissed so sweet, she holds my heart and she makes it beat again. She's my only friend..

Somebody please take me away from here, I'm starting to break I fear
and I need to go home
Somebody please make me feel whole again, I'm starving for innocence
and I just need to scream
