A sincere thank you to my incredibly supportive family, friends, fans, bench band buddies and all of the talented musicians who helped me produce this album. I could not have completed it without your love, support and encouragement.
I am especially thankful for my perfect partner, best friend and beautiful wife, Nikki. You are my dream come true!

That’s Just Me

When you don’t think you can handle the pain
When you open the door to the rain
When it feels too cold to go outside
Stand and hold your head up high
Don’t hide by yourself all alone

And if you don’t prefer the road you’re traveling on
Turn around and you’ll be gone

You get one life to figure out what you got
There’s no try there’s only do or do not
When there is no point of compromise
How long till you realize
Life’s too short to throw it away

But that’s just me
But that’s just me

What’s the point going out on the road
If it only bleeds your heart and your soul
There are more important things than gold
Truth can not be bought or sold
Find a way to be who you are

Did you reach your destination
Or did you brake down by the side of the road

(Chorus)

But that’s just me
But that’s just me

If you know who you are in the morning
Then you’ll know who you are when you sleep
Trust your mind will recognize
Separate the truth and lies
Be yourself or live in disguise

And if you don’t accept the world you’re living in
The key to change is to begin

(Chorus) x 2

But that’s just me x 4



Not Myself

Rise and shine
Get out of bed but I can’t seem to raise my head
The light outside
breaks through the blinds
casts a shadow what’s the time
My darkened mind
I’m not myself today

Well I woke up feeling lonely and I woke up feeling blue
Went looking for a reason and I took it out on you
I wipe my eyes
I’m not myself today

I don’t know what to say
I’m not myself today
I don’t know what to say
I’m not myself today

Stepped out through the front door and starring back at me
The kind of day you dream about
Not a cloud to see
Sunshine, beauty
But I’m not myself today
The world was turning toward me
but I felt it slipping by
The solitary prison of the feeling in my mind
I’ll be fine
I’m just not myself today

I don’t know what to say
I’m not myself today x 3

Been down this road a million times
I guess it’s one more hill to climb
The darkness of the night surrenders to the morning light
I’m alright
I’m just not myself today

I don’t know what to say
I’m not myself today x 4




Living The Dream

Life in the jungle
Chasing the game
Playing the part again and again
Losing the hours in the day
I walk in the room
I bury my head
Deep in the sand
Deep in the bed
Making my way back to you

I’m living the dream
Smelling the sea
Feeling the tide
Tasting the wine
I’m riding the highs
leaving worries behind
I’m living the dream
I’m living the dream

Shoot for the stars
Follow your dreams
Or live your life
just wondering
What comes of you
happens in time
The view of your life
can follow the climb
10,000 hours
Do your time
Nothing comes to us for free

(Chorus) x2

I’ve been on the road
Out in the cold
But I feel the warmth of you
Where do we go
God only knows
But she ain’t sayin’
I paid my dues
I played the blues
And I found my way
To happy days
But it was a long time coming

(Chorus) x 2
Ohh I’m living the dream
I’m living the dream




Get Back Home

The highway lights seem bright tonight
I’m on a road
To get back home

Took a wrong turn
So I went that way
Making good time
I’ll get there some day

(Chorus)

I’m gunna climb a mountain
I will swim the widest sea
To get back what was taken from me
I’m gunna climb a mountain
I will swim the widest sea
To get back home
To get back home

Looked around and I realized
Happiness in life is in your mind
Rain or shine
Living life in a paradise
Green rolling hillside meets the sea
That’s where I want to be

Took a wrong turn
So I went that way
Making good time
I’ll get there some day

(Chorus) x 4


Whether skies are clear or grey
We will share the treasure of today
So take me home


There’s no wrong turn
Just another way
To find the meaning of a perfect day

(Chorus) x 4

Save Me

Fell into a dream
But I was wide-awake
Waves were crashing over me
Knocked me off my feet
Should I swim away
Can I fight the tide
Should I wait for the rescue
Or do I save myself

Slipped into the darkness
Found my way to the light
Took a breath
Then I held on tight
Do I know the way
To make it out of here
The shore was in my sight
Ohh, then it disappeared
Should I swim away
Can I fight the tide
Should I wait for the rescue
Can I take the pain
Will I feel the gain
Is there a lesson for you
Ohhhhh
Somebody save me
Save me from me
Save me from myself
Ohhhhh
Somebody save me
Save me from me
Save me from myself

Somebody save me
Ooohhh…Somebody save me x 8
Save me from myself
Somebody save me

Move On

Raised the 80’s I suppose
The final generation of the middle class
I bought the records and I read the notes
Spent my hours in pursuit of cash

Curved road
No, straight lines
(Chorus)
I guess I’ll find a way
I guess I’ll find a way
I’ll find a way to forgive you
I guess I’ll find a way
I guess I’ll find a way
I’ll find a way
To forgive you and move on
To forgive you and move on

I heard this song on the radio today
Turned it up and then I closed my eyes
It took me back to when I was five
Nothing mattered I was glad to be alive

Then the happy song began to fade
I started listening to the words they sang
Nothing I knew would ever be the same
The bitter coldness of the wind and rain

Lightning
Broken limb
Hard end
See you soon my friend

(Chorus)

I laid my head upon the pillow tonight
Rolled around I couldn’t close my eyes
It took some time
Took some time to realize
There is no wrong and there is no right

Reach out
Don’t
Waste time

(Chorus)

To forgive you and move on x 4


Letting Go

Good times come and go away
I'm three miles down a windy road
Cut my ties
Moving on with my head held high
I’ll find a new way to go

I'm letting go of what I used to know
Moving forward
Getting stronger
Took some time
To fill my soul
I'm letting go of what I used to know

Good times come and go on forever
Find a way to make that true
The lesson's there to learn
Choose your path and believe it
The rest is up to you

(Chorus) Repeat


I Know You

Well I went to New York City
and I've been to Hollywood
All the people in between
well, some are bad and some are good
People ramble on for hours
Some don't have a word to say
Guys will look you in the eye and lie
That’s how they make their way

I know you
You ain't got no time for friendly conversation
I know you
You look me in the corner of my eye
I know you
You live your life
in quiet desperation
I know you
I've met your kind
A thousand times before

I was out the other morning
with my doggy and my wife
When I came upon a man who told me all about his life
He continued on without a question thrown my way
When he saw someone he knew
I quickly turned and walked away

I know you
You talk at me and never ask a question
I know you
You don't listen to single word I say
I know you
You drive a million miles
in no direction
I know you
I was kind, so
You'll be coming back for more
I know you
You ain't got no time for friendly conversation
I know you
You ain’t got no time for friendly conversation
You look me in the corner of my eye
I know you
You live your life
in quiet desperation
I know you
I've met your kind
A thousand times before




I’ll Come Through

Starring at the highway lines
Rocky mountains rolling to my right
Didn’t know which way to go
Think I’m heading west but I don’t know

And I’ll come through
With a fire in my eyes
I’ll Come Through
With a hunger in my heart

Ohhhooooooo

Drove till dawn and parked the car
Spent the day just strummin’ my guitar
Crashed in Portland, Oregon
Closed my eyes
The next day is was gone

(Chorus)


Paid my toll at the golden gate
and drove down to the beach
Wasn’t sure I’d find my fate
but it felt within my reach

Ohhhooo
Oooo x2

Redwoods frame my line of sight
Punctuate the the ocean to my right


(Chorus)



Live Again

All alone
On a cliff by the sea
She used to pray
That can never be me
He used to hold her
Now she warms herself
Trying to live again
But the night's so cold

(Chorus)
Watching the sun come and go
She takes a walk and discovers new roads
Leaning on all of her friends
Cause she knows
She will live again

Far away, once removed
From her old life
Setting back to find a way to live again
She used to think that it was all worked out
Nothing is certain
Except for this moment
Right now

(Chorus)


Time moved on
she began to
Shine again
She stood up
And she rose
Like a champion
Life is cruel
But it can be so beautiful
Lightening can light you up
Or light your way


Watching the sun come and go
She takes a walk and discovers new roads
Leaning on all of her friends
Cause she knows
She will live again x 4
(How can I ever be whole again)
(She will stand and live again)
She knows she will live again




Today

Know a girl
She was raised
To believe
That her wants and her needs
Are both the same
She decided she would only
Hear her own words
All alone
On the wrong side of town

Everybody live your way
The sun will rise and set with no delay
Blue will turn to dark and grey
The storm will pass and wash away
It all adds up to who you are today

Knew a man
And he ran every day
Watched his weight
weighed his life by the pound
Then one day
He looked up in confusion
Smiled wide
Grabbed his chest and
Hit the ground

(Chorus)
It all adds up to who you are today x 8
