about

This album is a collection of songs centered around a break up. It is a break up record. A "Phases and Stages" kinda record. Or as I've heard recently from friends, a record kinda like Adele's record. Haven't heard her record, but you know, it's one of those, as there's nothing new under the sun. This is kinda new, though, to you and me, and just so you know it sort of follows a year in my life as I was processing the end of a romantic relationship.

This album was recorded on a day in November 2012 on a big, beautiful ass Steinway grand piano in an unnamed sanctuary near and dear to my heart in Nashville, Tennessee. My friend, JD Tiner, engineered the recordings, which were done live.

Sorry, sort of, that it is depressing as shit. If you've ever been down and out, maybe you can relate and enjoy. If you've ever loved somebody and had to let them go, maybe you'll like this. This is probably not good party music. I like to think of it as good driving music best enjoyed when it is cold outside. Really, though, most music is best processed while driving or moving, I think (sorry vinyl). And when it's cold outside, how good is music? Anyway it is music, and these are just some songs, and maybe you'll like them and maybe you won't. Either way I believe we can still be friends and I'll keep writing songs (I hope) and maybe you'll like those. For now, give it a listen and let it take you through the night ;) ;)

Track Name: Always On My Mind
Always on my mind
Always on my mind
Am I wasting all my time
Not being with you

Is it that you're with someone new
And your love for me is through
Or have I always needed you
And I'm a fool

Always on my mind
Always on my mind
Am I wasting all my time
Ooooh wasting all my time

Could it be like it was back then
Could we fix it? Could we mend?
Could we go back and love again?
Or is it gone?

Always on my mind
Always on my mind
Am I wasting all my time
Ooooh wasting all my time
Ooooh take me back to that time
Track Name: But Beautiful
Love is funny
Or it's sad
Or it's quiet
Or it's mad
It's a good thing
Or it's bad
But beautiful

Beautiful to take a chance
And if you fall you fall
And I'm thinking
That I might not mind at all

Love is tearful
Or it's gay
It's a problem
Or it's play
It's a heartache
Either way
But beautiful

And I'm thinking if you were mine
I'd never let you go
And that'd be beautiful
Love is beautiful
I know
Track Name: I'll Come Back To You
I'll come back to you
I'll come back to you
I always do
I always do
Track Name: You Are In My Heart
I still remember the first time I saw you
You were laughing and dancing you had a friend there with you
But that night that night is gone
Like our days it won't ever return

Oh, but you
Are in my heart
Forever more
Though we're apart
And there, there you will stay
No matter what change
May come our way

Oh my dear, my darling friend
We grew close in all the time we spent
We were alone alone in the end
But don't you know there's not a moment I regret

Oh, and you
Are in my heart
Forever more
Though we're apart
And there, there you will stay
No matter what change
May come our way
Track Name: Ready To Love Again
I've been down some dark roads
And I come up empty
I think I'm ready to love again

Too many nights chasing them neon lights
I think I'm ready to love again

A new day is coming
Fresh as the morning dew
There ain't no use denying what stays true
The nighttime may fall
With darkness all around
But the stars are still shining on through

I think I'm ready to love again
I think I'm ready oh to love again
I think I'm ready to love again
I think I'm ready to love again
