Album Notes
"You look but you don't see/You think, but not too much/You feel it slip away/You miss the human touch.
Although it seems to real/It's an image on a screen/A shadow on a wall/A half-remembered dream
It's the life that you're not living/The risks you wouldn't take/The roads you did not follow and the love that wouldn't wait/
There's still time to leave regret behind, and live and love and lose
There's still time for you to choose."

This was one of the first songs I ever wrote, and represents a dark time when I was evaluating my life -- and finding too many dreams unexplored. The beginning may be somber but it is ultimately a song of hope and enthusiasm:

"To never play it safe/To revel in the pain/To burn the candles at both end/To stand out in the rain
To love in spite of doubt/To laugh when you're afraid/To dance when you are tired/To claim what you have maid..."
