Jenny

June 28, 2017

some days I would rather sleep through every silhouette of morning
soldiers, marching in my dreams, all obeying different drums
fragile, no one really knows me, you said that I could share my story
come on baby, show me

Jenny come on, ride with me, it's only going to take a moment's time
Jenny come on, ride with me, it's only going to take a moment
let's take it, Jenny, come on

Watch this, I can only show you once and then we're going to leave here
playing sad inside a satire makes legends out of trolls
somewhere, you and I were chosen, take my hand today and always
come on baby, tell me

Jenny come on, ride with me, it's only going to take a moment's time
Jenny come on, ride with me, it's only going to take a moment
let's take it, Jenny, come on

I've found where I belong

 

Stranded On An Island

February 21, 2017

stranded on an island where I’m taught to behave like
a spoiled little rich kid with the cash to obey
mother and her ashtray dying slow in the porch light
daddy and his bottle rot alone in their grave

and I know, now, what it is
I see the movement coming down
and I don’t want to go

you’d give a little guidance if I’d just learn to listen
maybe ‘cause you’re tone deaf to the song in my soul
I never thought to ask you why I’m left here to linger
I’m never going to follow, I’ll never go where you go

and I know, now, what it is
I see the movement coming down
and I don’t want to go

slow down, moon lit wanderer, won’t you please break me out
slow down, fly no further, please come break me out
if you claim to notice, my smoke makes red the sun
I’ll burn all I see, my smoke makes red the sun

and I know, now, what it is
I see the movement coming down
and I don’t want to go

stranded on an island…

 

Free From Me EP

If There's Darkness

I miss my home, I miss my friends
I miss them all ’til the bitter end
if there’s darkness in your heart, then
let me show you how to live
let me show you how to give
if there’s darkness in your heart, then

it’s a cruel life, and it seems to me
the reason why I drown in tragedy's
'cause I pretend like
the simple things don’t mean that much to me

I miss my home, I miss my friends
I miss them all ’til the bitter end
if there’s darkness in your heart, then
let me show you how to live
let me show you how to give
if there’s darkness in your heart, then

It’s a cruel life, and it’s slow to grow
this hope that needs the poet in my soul
to put the wrongs right
‘cause I don’t want to live my life alone

I miss my home, I miss my friends
I miss them all ’til the bitter end
if there’s darkness in your heart, then
let me show you how to live
let me show you how to give
if there’s darkness in your heart, then
 

All That I Want

guess I’ve been starving for a brand new start
I’m reeling from the moment I broke your heart
but don’t worry about me
don’t worry, don’t worry
the tired rhythm of the same old streets
I’m a hero that’s trapped in a coward’s dream
but don’t worry about me
don’t worry, don’t worry
there is a man in the dark
who knows that the spark means the fuse lit
and if there’s a fool on the hill
he knows that he still has to prove it
call my name if you want me there

there is a light in the dark, the fear, the pain
I know you say that you hate me
all that I want is a chance to prove a lonely heart
has room for two if you’ll take me
all that I want in these desperate days and haunted nights
is proof I matter to someone
it’s all that I want
you can find it here

there is a man in the dark
who knows that the spark means the fuse lit
and if there’s a fool on the hill
he knows that he still has to prove it
call my name if you want me there

there is a light in the dark, the fear, the pain
I know you say that you hate me
all that I want is a chance to prove a lonely heart
has room for two if you’ll take me
all that I want in these desperate days and haunted nights
is proof I matter to someone
it’s all that I want
the night I left and ran away
is to give back all that I’ve stolen
it’s all that I want
 

Free From Me

every night I close my eyes
I’m haunted by the starlight in a different sky
the memories of that moment in Mobile
I’d escape my broken world
I’d learn to love this southern girl
I’ve long outgrown my gloomy home
in the state of evergreen

‘cause everyone of us can change
change our ways
if we learn to live life out loud
I know I will never be free from me
so I’ll have to seek shelter from the storm

now I’m paralyzed by fright
I felt it in a Catskills night
now I’m blind out here in Brooklyn
but the sun’s not in my eyes
in the Rockies now I chase
a girl with whom I can’t keep pace
another angel hates me now
it’s one more smile I’ll never see again

hope everyone of us can change
change our ways
if we learn to live life out loud
I know I will never be free from me
so I’ll have to seek shelter from the storm
