    Welcome to my first album Wood & Wire. This record was written over the last few years, on tour, and in between; jotted in the back of my mind and recorded at home with the indispensable help of a few special friends and the burning desire I cannot shake to always live, breathe and share music. Thank you for pushing me toward this goal and for listening.
    The song "Make A Move" will remain available on a pay-by-donation basis for as long as bandcamp will allow it, and I have a few surprises, like a bundle of unreleased tracks, hi-resolution artwork and other delights in store for the first 300 people to purchase the album from:

    The world is a song. Gravity is the beat. Love is the melody, and all we have to do is live to give a little meaning.

Track Name: How Long Till We Know
HOW LONG TILL WE KNOW
in the next 30 seconds
if the planet vanishes in a haze,
will the boring and the reckless get along
in the flash of flickering fame?

Will we
end up infamous,
if there's anyone left listening
in this misbegotten dream
of a God too cool to notice?

How Long till we know tonight?
Will that simple rush of desire always makes us feel alive.

How long till we know for sure?
we were meant to rise above, ignite, and overflow

How Long Till We Know?

there's a fool here in each of us
ready to raise a hand in
this charade
so roll down the dirty window
& say hello to
the great big empty

there are diamonds in the sky now
and twice as many in our eyes
across the night somehow
the beauty multiplies.

Say so long
to the shadowy cold
let the easy rush of love
in like an ocean
It was meant to rise above us all
and overflow

How Long Till We Know?

There's a fool here in each of us, ready to just let go and sing, so open up your window and say
hello
Track Name: Fast Forward (Intro)
Yea. About that.
Track Name: Love Like That
LOVE LIKE THAT

CHORUS:
i wanna move you so you never look back
wanna write your dirty dancing soundtrack
all twisted up like a french kiss

do you do you wanna love like that?
super bad
best you ever had
do you do you wanna love like that?

v.1
the color red
painted walls
my little fantasy
to cannon ball into you

soaking wet
your body is summertime
one of a kind
key lime pie
delicious
----------------
the first scene
a covered bed of roses
you in between
if you know what i mean

its make believe
so all we need is rhythm
so let's rock
the world can watch

v.2
scene two,
just letting loose
your making/ my world spin
upside down beautiful
nightmare with your bedroom eyes
long hair

all i want
is to take you down
you animal
let me explore your nature
so we can share the same dream tonight

its total bliss
you can't deny you need it
so let's rock
are you in or not

BRIDGE
Anything that you want
make you glow in the dark
come on shake it up
rolling like thunder
i will be black and white
till you color in my life
till forever i will fight to surrender
to you.
Track Name: Somebody's Miracle
SOMEBODY'S MIRACLE

its been so long since you let yourself show
but you're still a wonder there underneath it all
&
its crystal clear to everyone you know
like a one way mirror they're trying to see through you
while you stand there frozen cold in your point of view

wake up
wake your dream
don't let it go

you can have it all
if you give some more than typical
and
be somebody's miracle

even though we're coming undone
&
we will never be everything to everyone,
we become
somebody's miracle.

when you fade to black by yourself in the corner
will you shine your light tonight bright slow burner?
yea you color in the room yea you could fill in the world too
you belong in love so feel it
all you've got is time.
to forget what's on your mind

wake up
wake your dream
don't let it go

you can have it all
if you give some more than typical
and
be somebody's miracle

whether you believe it or not,
inside our truth faith is what we've got.

we become somebody's miracle
every time that we falter
every finish that we star
just hold on.

wake up
wake your dream
don't let it go
stand up
its your dream
that needs you so

we are somebody's miracle
Track Name: Seeing Stars Align
SEEING STARS ALIGN
there is proof of magic in this messed up world
in between the lines and all the rationale
but sometimes you can drive your heart right off the map
and others the only love that matters lives to pull you back.

knocking you right off of your feet

im seeing stars align
every time she smiles
my lifebegins to make some sense
to me and i can see
all our dreams are suddenly so real
and i keep
seeing stars align

i was down and out in desperation town
and all i had was shattered in the aftermath of a nightmare
like her favorite song sung out of key
in my car
in her big bright eyes i found that i was free
im telling you she rescued me

like a sign when you least expect
half a beat from a heart attack
forgott myself in the way she moves
i was dynamite
she lit my fuse
and my
stars aligned.
a constellation of paradise.
Track Name: No More Heartache
NO MORE HEARTACHE
come take me home
i don't know where i've been

this isn't glamorous anymore
just shadows in the dark


show me something real
i can't take the waiting all alone
this can never stay because nothing does
fading in the sun

gather all your words and come talk to me
separate lies from reality
truth is in between us like it used to be
no more heartache
no more heartache

(i) want to shine a light
tell me something just to make me smile
tell me where the innocence has gone
scattered in the wind

photograph photograph
staring back, it isn't me

the only last familiar faces left are the ones i see on tv

gather all your words and come talk to me
separate lies from reality
truth is in between us like it used to be
no more heartache
no more heartache
oldest friend i miss you so desperately
whenever weŗe together I remember me
tell me can you see it all differently?

no more heartache
no more heartache
Track Name: Make A Move
MAKE A MOVE

can you open up my eyes
so i can see myself again
I hope it comes as a surprise
I wasted all this time pretending to be
whatever wasn't me
but now the walls keep tumbling
down

no one is looking to become
a black hole of bright ideas
we want to know who we are
so we don't feel disappointed
a faded memory not lost
a mystery from
from long ago
a little light to call our own
when we are standing here alone
salvation found in translation
like a melody opens up windows
and doors

how did i get here so far away
from everything i was yesterday
gotta make a move to save my soul
gotta make a move, gotta make a move
logic is twisted, paralyzed
how do we get so hypnotized
gotta make a move to save my soul
gotta make a move, gotta make a move

is anyone else here terrified
of all that you wanted in another life
fear is making us live in overdrive
gotta make a move, gotta make a move

in all of our doubt we are driven to believe
this moment means everything

we're the only ones who ever understand why
gotta make a move
gotta maka a move
Track Name: Light Me Up
LIGHT ME UP
V.1
summertime
purple sky
touching for the first time

evidence on your hips
fingerprints and lipstick
bittersweet symphonies
stereo make me believe

love is jail
nothing new
your desire
sets me free
im alive feeling high
when you stand next to me
nevermind all the crimes
you are just what i need.

CHORUS
Light me up like its your last cigarette
you don't have to be so lonely
Hold me in just to feel this desperate
burning up for you slowly

V.2
tell me now what you need
whisper what i want to hear
the secrets that we share
when you're laying next to me
nothing else can compare
just like walking on air

CHORUS:
Light me up like its your last cigarette
you don't have to be so lonely
Hold me in just to feel this desperate
burning up for you slowly

You been locked down inside long enough
you dont got to be afraid no more
Light me up like your last cigarette

BRIDGE:
so come on over we can sleep all day
you know i want you in the worst of ways
if we start if over
make the feeling stay
can we
crash and burn
crash and burn
Track Name: It Happens Every Time (Going Through The Motions)
When you'e not the next big thing
and the world forgot your name
when you feel it sinking in it isn't your imagination
waiting for the avalanche

It happens every time
the second you've got it figured out
Killing off your life
holding too fast to control
Wasted
waiting on a breakthrough
Playing your part like a readthrough
you won't get to tomorrow.

Inhale, exhale
going through the motions

You want to be redeemed
in the search for self esteem
anywhere but in yourself.
The trouble when you think you know it all is you dont feel
anything at all
Track Name: Tidal Wave
TIDAL WAVE

V.i
is it so hard for you find some honesty?
tune it out turn me down keep trying
I won't let you get away

when did innocence become so blind?
staring at the sun made us numb

murder my trust
test your luck
if we're done then
ego is the killer

CHORUS:
Hey
Hate
Rising up like a tidal wave
Hey
Hate
Not a lot left to say so we take it all back
take it away
all of the lies and the bitter taste that you leave
hey, hey
washed away in a tidal wave


V.ii
Couldn't deny the chemistry
that's why it hurts,
it was our time to hit the sky
but you wrecked it anyway

tragically hip
or so you think
original turned to whatever
i want to forgive
the promises
the emptiness you keep giving

CHORUS:
Hey
Hate
Rising up like a tidal wave
Hey
Hate
Not a lot left to say so we take it all back
take it away
all of the lies and the bitter taste that you leave
hey, hey
washed away in a tidal wave

What we had at the beginning
didn't need a name
didn't have to break.
Track Name: Chalkline
CHALKLINE
sometimes you gotta run
just to see who will follow
when a taste is not enough
of your wildest dream

like the barrel of a gun
pointed at your self-destruction
you can find a new beginning
in the smithereens

you're thinking
oh my
mistakes belong in a song
as the tears fall down
somehow
its time to move along

dyin to be more than just a chalkline
at the scene of the crime

some lies we just believe
to avoid a conversation
but when nothing's what it seems
i am comfortable

and the future we can't rush
will never be the destination
of the feelings we can't touch
waiting by the phone

for you to call out:
hello its not too late
for my daydream
so i'll see you
on the
outside

dyin to be more than just a chalkline at the scene of the crime
trying to feel a moment that is all mine

that nobody knows and no one can find
when i come around
from the island where i hide
there'll be no
dancing on the edge of this life

dyin to be more than just a chalkline at the scene of the crime
trying to feel a moment that is all mine
nobody knows and only i can find it always
dyin to be more than just a chalkline
i want to be
more than a memory.
