ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
#1. Wake Me Up
The first time I heard this song by Avicii I loved the groove and the message, so I knew I wanted
to record it someday. It just seemed to fit the concept of this album and I am so happy I decided
to do it in a more acoustic style.

#2. It Can Be An Illusion
I wrote this song back in 1995 and just happened to run across it while finishing up the album.  It
is actually about how so many people have drug or alcohol habits and seem to be trying to avoid
the anxiety and truth of their own reality.

#3. Valley Of Desire
I wrote this song years ago while visiting friends in Australia. Actually, I dreamed it and when I
woke up, I wrote it down in about five minutes and only changed a word or two. It has been
recorded a couple of times for different albums.

#4. Forget Me Not
I was inspired to write this for an Alzheimer’s promotional project that never came to fruition. I
wanted to include it because of the message. Some of my loved ones have suffered from
Alzheimer’s and I honor their memory with this song on the album.

#5. The Last Rose of Summer/Red Bird
I wrote this song about my parents and their love story. The day of my mother’s funeral, the idea
came to me. I was thinking of her as the last rose of my summer of life and how I will now be
going into the autumn of my own life. It’s about the cycle of life I guess.

#6. Crazy Cradle Of Love
This song had a different chorus and I recorded it that way but I heard this new chorus and
decided it was a much better song this way.  I guess I wrote it about myself and other people I
know and how a relationship can get totally off the tracks because of betrayal.

#7. Dirty Rotten Dog
I was just playing around one morning on the guitar and this is what came from that little session
of goofing off by myself.  I have known a few men like this and a few dogs like this and it was
just funny to me at the time. But seems timeless, don’t you think?

#8. Like A Rock
I have always loved the story of this song and Bob Seeger is one hell of a storyteller. I can
certainly relate to this story and so can millions of us. I guess that is why it has been such a huge
success.

#9. I Ain’t Leavin’,’Til I’m Even
I was in a writing session with my good friend Wayne Carson not long after a divorce and we
started comparing notes on our divorces and realized we could relate. His first marriage had cost
him half his songwriting royalties and I was bitching about walking away empty handed from
mine so we just turned it into a tongue and cheek story instead  We had a lot of fun with it.

#10. I Press On
When I came up with this idea it was from the scripture where the apostle Paul was talking about
pressing on in life no matter what is going on around us.  I took it into a writing session as I was
working on my Testimony album and this is how it came out. I was also trying to write a more
uptempo song to close my show and it seems to work.
