about

This is my first independent release. I spent most of 2005 in the studio with producer Zack Proteau recording songs that I had written between the age of 16 though 26. I even had my parents and sister sing backup on the track "Hangin' on a String". I hope you enjoy!

Track Name: Longing For Home
I left a lot of things behind to be here
Not sure if it’s the best decision I’ve made
I’ve got to just hang on in there
Accomplish what I can and stick with it, stick with it

To the south all the birds have flown
To the south all the birds have flown
And I’m longing for home
And I’m longing for home

Met a handful of people some are my new friends
Spend a lot of time with myself
This is a journey I’ve encountered
Thinking about what’s going on when I’m not around, keepin my head up and my feet on the ground

It’s gonna be cold as hell
It’s already cold in the fall
So just remember
Just remember me in Montreal

I’m just scraping by
Got a low paying job but my aspirations fly
I’ll give it all I’ve got
And shut away my emotions and keep on keepin on

To the south all the birds have flown
To the south all the birds have flown
And I’m longing for home
And I’m longing for home
And I’m longing for home
And I’m longing for home
Track Name: Hangin' on a String
I can remember gazing in your eyes
and I remember feeling hypnotized
And I didn't know what I was gonna do
And didn't you know why I was so blue?

You left me hangin' on a string
And I don't want to feel that again

I can't tell you what is' done to me
And I can't tell you now that I'm free
But I've moved on now, overcome my biggest fear
I've moved on now, cried out all my tears

You left me hangin' on a string
And I don't want to feel that again
You left me hangin' on a string
And I don't want to feel that again
Track Name: I'm Going Away
I am leaving in two months
It'll pass by like nothing
My chance to start all over
Is this really what I want?

I'm gonna miss all the visits
All the smiles and all the laughter
These are the times to remember
Oh remember to keep in touch

So many things to say
Chances and opportunities gone astray
There's no reason I should stay
I'm going away

Things are so fresh in the beginning
Lots of new friends, it depends
Mistakes were made, poor choices I'm afraid
That's how we learn the lessons of life
There are no teachers to make my decisions
No teachers for my religion

So many things to say
Chances and opportunities gone astray
There's no reason I should stay
I'm going away
Track Name: Feeling Better
What am I doing here?
Am I just wasting my time
So many things on my mind

Make the right choice
Hope I don't fade away
I'll be back with you some other day….yeah

Are you feeling low?
I don't know what to think
Were all your feelings genuine?

Now I'm without you
Oh I've lost a friend
Got to start all over again

But I'm feeling better all the time
Feeling better
Feeling better all the time
Feeling better

Now I'm out of here
Oh I'm on my way
What else can I say?

So my time has come
I think it's time to change
Thoughts in my head all rearanged

But I'm feeling better all the time
Feeling better
Feeling better all the time
Feeling better
Track Name: The Only This is You
Maybe I'll call you tomorrow
Maybe
Should I wait for tomorrow to come?
Should I?

Try to remember and be honest
Get away from those superficial norms
And walk with me, hands in hands
As our eyes connect, and we fly away
Lips together in my arms forever

If you could read my mind
Then you'd realize what's going on
If you could read my mind
Then you'd realize what's true
The only thing is you

Forget about your past
Because you're not being judged
Realize what's right, what's going on
And I won't kid myself
Maybe I'm not the one
But I'll try, oh I'll try

If you could read my mind
Then you'd realize what's going on
If you could read my mind
Then you'd realize what's true
The only thing is you
Track Name: Puddin'
Nobody said it'd be easy
Nobody said It'd be bad
Sitting out on your steps, believe me
Smoking cigarrettes again

You're really getting to me
Really getting to me down deep
I see you looking at me
I can't stand to see you sad

Oh Puddin'
I know you've got a lot on your mind
And I don't want to be a burden
You'll see that in some time
Everything will be just fine

I know I say things I don't mean
I say things you don't deserve
You mean the world to me, you do
I could say the words, but I'm reserved

Oh Puddin'
I know you've got a lot on your mind
And I don't want to be a burden
You'll see that in some time
Everything will be just fine

You mean the world to me
You mean the world to me, you do
You're the best thing I've had

You mean the world to me
You mean the world to me, oh yeah
You're the best thing I've had
Track Name: She's Got a Guy
There's a connection between us
Of unspoken feelings, unspoken words
Sharing smiles, those gorgeous eyes
It's never just the two of us, and if it was, girl I'd make you realize

She's got a guy, she's got a guy, she's got a guy
She's got a guy, she's got a guy, she's got a guy
And he's my friend

But what can I do, I'm feeling down
Tempting feelings, tempting desires
She's so naturally, beautifully
Oh God, why is it like this? Why is it like this?

My love to you I'll send
But all of this I just have to pretend

She's got a guy, she's got a guy, she's got a guy
She's got a guy, she's got a guy, she's got a guy
And he's my friend

If I could freeze time
Then you'd realize
A way around this
And come back to me, back to me

My love to you I'll send
But all of this I just have to pretend

She's got a guy, she's got a guy, she's got a guy
She's got a guy, she's got a guy, she's got a guy
And he's my friend
Track Name: Not This Time
You got me before with those big brown eyes
But it won’t happen again no, no

Thought we’d been through this before
Just gonna be friends

You got a new man now but you still hang around
I guess it all depends

I’m tempted but can’t make the same mistake twice
I’m feeling but I’m not thinking right
You think its fine
Yeah, you think its fine but not this time
You think its fine but not this time

So out of the sky you fall back into my life
And is there one good reason

Why hadn’t you kept in touch before
I don’t want to get even

So go back to your life and to your new man
Leave me behind

I’m tempted but can’t make the same mistake twice
I’m feeling but I’m not thinking right
You think its fine
Yeah, you think its fine but not this time
You think its fine but not this time
Track Name: Losing Faith
A dream come true
That's what it seemed
Everything's coming together
In my stomach butterflies streamed

Fortune, prestige, and fame
Surround me as I float
Is this all serious?
Or is it just a joke?

You can't help but get excited
When things sound your way
I don't like to be negative
But I'm losing faith

The talk is around
You're gonna be a star
But I'm not sure if it'll get that far

You can't help but get excited
When things sound your way
I don't like to be negative
But I'm losing faith

A dream come true
That's what it seemed
Everything's coming together
In my stomach butterflies streamed
Track Name: Set Yourself Free
I'm sorry, I could have paid you more affection
I could have called more often
I took what I had for granted
And sorry I didn't convince you to stay with me

You set yourself free
Now go on without me

I tried, but I was new to the whole
Concept of loving you
I miss your laugh and your soft smile
And all the times we danced in each other's eyes
There was no one I'd rather see

You set yourself free
Now go on without me
Track Name: I Want You to Know
Expectations of myself are so very high
I'm never good enough it seems and I don't know why
Broken down on the road, people pass me on by

I know my potential, and I know my place
Opportunities come and gone like a punch in the face
Still I ain't giving up this stupid dream of mine

Benn knocked to the floor, been under the lights
Fell flat on my face, and as my disguise
Cheap beer and cigarrettes drown away my day

But then I got you, you never let me down
Like I'm sitting on a thrown, like I'm wearing a crown
And I don't deserve half the smiles I see

There's other fish in the ocean, other trout in the stream
But you chose me, and so it may seem
I'm stuck in this dream, and I don't want to pinch myself

And I want you to know that I love you
Whether it may show
And I'll never let you fall down, so don't you forget
I want you to know

So I'll play this song, I'll strum my guitar
The path I want to ride is so wide and so far
So pleased I picked you up along the way

The road might get bumpy, might even dead end
But at least I got you, and a couple of friends
To pick up the phone if ever I should call

And if I go away, away from your arms
You know I'll come back, no matter how far
I'd hitchhike home to see those big brown eyes

So I'll untie my gloves and loosen the cleats
It's as clear as a bell sunlight peeking through the trees
With you by my side, I am finally complete

And there's no place to run, and I don't want to hide
Every inch of my soul, every ounce of my pride
Makes me realize, you've taken the thorns from my side

And I want you to know that I love you
Whether it may show
And I'll never let you fall down, so don't you forget

That I want you to know that I love you
Whether it may show
And I'll never let you fall down, so don't you forget
I want you to know
Track Name: Let Loose
Everything is fine when you're not around
Said I'm ok when you're not around
But when I see you, there are fireworks in my head

Things go smooth when you're not there
I'm really fine when you're not there
But when we meet, oh you're the only one I see

If we could just let loose one night
If we could just let loose one night of our lives one night
If we could just let loose one night of our lives
Cause I know things would be alright

Then we'd go back to separate lives
And not think of this, let it run out of my mind
Until the next time

If we could just let loose one night
If we could just let loose one night of our lives one night
If we could just let loose one night of our lives
Cause I know things would be alright
Track Name: Wipe the Tears Away
How will you ever know how I feel for you
If you never ask
How will you ever know how I feel for you
If we just let time pass

It hurts so much to see you
Not knowing the things I should do
As I wipe the tears away

How could you forget the day that we first met
We were caught in one big dance
How could you forget the day that we first met
I want another chance

It hurts so much to see you
Not knowing the things I should do
As I wipe the tears away
