about

I wrote most of these songs in the fall of 2011. Wanting to produce the album professionally, I held off on releasing it. Since I'm currently in school, and it will be a while before I can do the songs justice, I figured I'd go ahead and release them as a demo for now. I'm proud of this album. I believe "Except for You," "Leave the Light On," "Vigil," and "Cynthia" are the best songs I've written.

released February 7, 2014

Track Name: Leave the Light On
Leave the light on for my tired soul
The night is dark and the night cold
I won't give up, Mama
That's just not what I'd do
But sometimes I need a little help to see me through

Leave the light on for my weary eyes
The night is long and the night wild
I won't close them, Mama
except to calm my head
But sometimes I need a little help
to find some rest.

When my pockets are empty
When my options, they are short
And when love is gone
and I'm alone
Dreaming of a life that's lost
just remember

To leave the light on for your weary son
Cause this ain't the world that he thought he was
But I ain't gonna check out, Mama
I'll stay here til I'm gone
But sometimes I need a little help
to find my home.

When my pockets are empty
when my options, they are short
And when love is gone
and I'm all alone
Dreaming of a life that's lost
just remember

To leave the light on when the rain is hard
Leave the light on like a shining star
and leave the light on, Mama
And don't worry bout me none
Cause I'll know just where to go when the day is done
Track Name: Vigil
Have you ever felt
a part o the quiet
did it make you feel small in the nighttime?
I know I have.
I've sat in my chair singing words that I cannot believe.
I know I have. What about you? I know you have, you have, too.

And have you ever tried
their broken cliches
to give you some hope in the wartime?
I know I have.
I've said all their prayers but a soldier just never forgets.
I'm alone now. Yes, it's true. I'm alone now. So are you.

So, child, if this is the end of the world
well, what will they do with our mothers,
crying out loud to our fathers?
So, child, if this is the end of the world
well, what will they do with our brothers,
holding the hands of our sisters,
deep in the heart of our vigil?
They love you.

Maybe all we have
is the fact that we know
that we can't know anything at all
but believing
believing there's reason to wander down these winding halls
is a reason all the same
there's no ending to the game

Maybe all you need
is to pack up your things
and take to the road in the nighttime
just keep moving
don't you know
I am moving,
moving on
