LAST CHANCE
Im a broken man,
With no alternate plans,
Iv’e been dealt my hand,
Now you’re telling me again,

That you’ve had enough
I’m not sure what I’ve done
Somehow we’ve lost our way,
It’s not easy to say,
Would you just stay and listen,

Chorus
Because I’m down to my last chance,
And I’ve taken my last breath,
Said it’s not up to me for you to understand,
That I don’t have much time,
This is my last chance,
Said I don’t have much time,
This is my last chance.

These years have come,
Now you’re asking me what I’m running from,
We had that perfect love,
That’s exactly what I was afraid of,

Now its come down to it,
Not sure if I can do it,
You’re forcing me to decide what I need in my life,
You’re my one and only love,
Even though you’re thinking of,
Leaving me and moving on,
I can’t live with you gone.

Chorus

Said no more words can make you stay,
It’s up to you before our love slips away,
I’ve done all I can do,
Given my love to you,
I’m torn inside what I need in my life.

EVER END
Someone is hungry
With nobody watching,
Through the cold blanket of war,

Should i be able to sum up the problems,
Is anyone able to add anything more,

Can this get any worse ,
Will this ever end.
Until the children,
Can come to the table,

Chorus
To be what they've always been,
A love that heals broken kin,
To watch the world once again.

Smoke signals aren’t speaking so clearly
The burning ain’t quite reaching the flames
Will some please let the fire know that the,
Heat that their giving is causing the pain.

Can this get any worse ,
Will this ever end.
Until the children,
Can come to the table,

Chorus

The children are watching,
To what you’ve been doing.
The love has finally come,
To stop fanning the flames.

The fear has been lifted,
And so have the gifted,
To embrace the world once again

LOSE YOUR HEAD
What happened before WWI
And the fight that began after the soldiers were done,
Who knows the story of the love that was lost,
Who mediated the battle between their and their hearts

Has the struggle been so hard that he's lost his heart
He must lose his head to begin back at the start,
He’s trapped with no guard within his cell,
Shut into a world that i know so well

Chorus
Should I let it go to my head,
Should I let it go to my heart,
These two are the worst love story,
They try and pull each other apart.

Who is that poor doser,
What’s the words that surround and enclose her,
What been stolen has she fallen from glory,
As she sits with her belongings, tired and worried.

Has the struggle been so hard that she’s lost her heart
She must lose her head to begin back at the start,
She’s trapped with no guard within his cell,
Shut into a world that i know so well

Chorus

What about the lone music man,
Doing the best that I can,
Sittin atop your throne as i struggle through it all,
Sticks and stones won’t break my bones.

KEEP IT UP
Don’t turn your back on me,
I’m not giving up on nothing.
As long as I’m breathing, I’m
Living for something.

It might appear as if I’ve lost it all,
But love always answers,
Answers my call. So,

Chorus
(Keep Keep it up)
Sooo,
Life Goes On
Sooo,
(Keep Keep it up, Keep it on)

A wise women once told me
Sing till the birds stop singing,
Breath till the oceans stop breathing
Live till love is all you believe in.

A wise man once told me,
You ain’t lived until you’ve lost it all,
But then you’ll always fly,
No matter how far the fall.

Chorus

Take it how its coming now,
And never stop slowing down,
You never know how far you’ll fly tonight,

And every time I take a fall,
I sit back and I think of ya’ll.
Should I keep on keepin on,
Don’t stop movin.

Chorus

It’s time to climb much farther,
It’s time to go.
It’s time to climb much farther
Then ever before.

Your colors explode.

MEMORY LANE
Im a long way from here,
On the wrong side of town,
Iv’e lost my way, I fear,
And I’ve stumbled to the ground,

My mind's wandering as you appear,
Suddenly you're waving me down,
Funny how I find you waiting there,
You disappeared without making a sound

Chorus
Because I’m stuck here on memory lane
Time’s at a stand still and you never change
I’m stuck here on memory lane
Try’in not to fall back in love again

It’s great to see you again,
It’s really been to long,
Your beauty’s like the setting sun,
To re-appear after darkness is done,

I close my eyes and I find you there,
Just like I’ve always done before,
Funny how I love these memories of you.
That’s why I come back for more.

Chorus

It’s killing me over and over again
How you disappeared without leaving a trace,
You left me running this race on my own
And the only way to finish is to remain

BATTLE CRY
There you are right where I left you,
Not far away from home,
Your so close but why cant i get to,
Back to where I was before,

I had to go off to battle,
For reasons Im not even sure,
I left you broken and fragile,
Not knowing that I took the cure

Chorus
This is my battle cry,
For you and I,
Listening for love in the wind,
Whispering never give, never give in.

I traveled with you in my pocket,
Along with brass and bullets galore.
I never worried bout nothing,
Except for dying here without you at war

You told me to smile once and awhile,
but right now I can’t see what for,
I’m lying here with no one to save me,
Shots ring out there’s more on the floor,
Why is there more on the floor.

Chorus

Never give in....
I Hear more shots ring out,
There’s more on the floor.

CHANGE
I’m approaching things a little differently than the way I had,
I’m finding more about myself than I ever had,
My mode to self discovery searches far behind of the walls of my past,

My have I grown,
From the known into the unknown,
As I love and continue to grow,
There’s a few things you should know, know know.

Chorus
We assume that the rules won’t erase that they will just stay the same,
But we tend to make them bend to amend for the errors we’ve made,
But then we find that our binds make our minds want the answers to stay,
But the truth is emergent in ya searching what you know will change,
know will change.

There’s always people sayin this is how it is,
There’s no other way around it, either you can sink or swim,
There’s no waiting, there’s only drowning
or either you can wait till the end.

My have I grown,
From the known into the unknown,
As I love and continue to grow,
There’s a few things you should know, know know.

I'M YOURS
Can I;
Pardon you for a moment of your time,
It’s just you and I;
And I.

As We;
Gaze past each others bright eyes,
I’ve finally found, I’ve finally found my life
My life.

Chorus
I’m yours;
Always and forever I’m yours,
I’m yours.

As I;
Use this moment to defy,
Gravities and elevate my life,
My Life,
v Your beauty lies,
Far beneath the gaze of your eyes,
It’s finally time for you to be my wife,
My wife.

Chorus

You are my other, and now it comes down to this,
I’ve been waiting my whole life for this wish.
Our love has grown to a height we can't resist,
Before we jump lets seal this with a kiss

STAR
As I lay here the night folds in.
Keeper of my hearts as far ,
as the stars shinning,
I always lose when it comes to love,
But I love the light as the clouds
catch to the wind.

I refuse to hurt as bad as I did,
But here I am once again
Last time you left me I vowed I would leave,
But again and again you pull me back in,

Chorus
I fell in love with a star,
falling across my sky,
When two lives they collide.
Leaving two lives behind,

Wake up wondering where,
Shouldn't of fallen in love
Wake up wondering where
Where you are.

The day breaks the dawn and I’m off and off and away
To a place where I’ll face your face leaving again,
You smile staying true to your heart
As you take to the wind
Knowing I’ll see you again.

I refuse to hurt as bad as I did,
But here I am once again
Last time you left me I vowed I would leave,
But again and again you pull me back in,

Chorus

Bridge

Here you come fallin back again,
Just like you said
The shine in your eyes says you missed me at night,
Shining so hight, now im all right.

Thank you,
Im glad I fell in love,
With a star.

MY DREAMS
How far can we take it from here,
God knows I’ve never felt like this before,
You’ve stolen me away to where the blossoms bloom in may,
And left me here to love my days away,
Here with you.

With your company we’ll face the seas,
On a life long fairy tale,
Where the pages turn forever,
This can’t be make believe,
So you pull me in and say to me;

Chorus
This is better than my dreams,
Somehow you’ve landed here with me.
Now we’re off for the world to see,
How true love should be.

I thought this day would never come,
Didn’t want you to get away,
So I wrapped my arms around you,
And love you more and more each day.

Together we will find a way,
To make our dreams true,
Shoot for the moon,
Let’s not resist,
Our love’s impossible to miss.

Chorus

Now we’re off and away,
Nothing’s holding us down,
Growing older each day,
Our love go beyond the ends of the earth,
And our souls will be strong,
And our love will remain.

MAN OF STEEL
My ego’s on the move again,
Wants to hit the road,
And go to places never been,
Two’s much better than alone,

What are you willing to do,
To fight for your dreams,
What are you willing to prove,
To the fears that make you scream.

Do what I gotta do,
Prove what I gotta prove
Clark didn’t settle,
Men of steel never lose x2
Men of steel never do

Chorus
Gonna fight my way to stardom,
Gonna steal away the kill
Tell me what’s the problem,
With a man made of steel

Gonna fight my way to stardom,
Like the winter does to autumn,
Tell me what’s the problem,
With a man made of steel

When does the pressure get to high,
That pushes birds to jump,
It is pressure that holds them in the sky,
Saying never give up.

Luck will always run out on you,
There’s too many bachelors around,
So pick yourself back up again,
When she finally leaves town.

Do what you gotta do,
Prove what you gotta prove
Clark didn’t settle,
Men of steel never lose x2
Men of steel never do

Chorus

About

Established in 1985

I Am

“I really enjoy being able to call music my creative outlet. Its one aspect of my life that I know will always be here. The relationships that transpire through my music continue to give light to new opportunities I would have never planned. Its fun. I love it. From sleeping underneath Sly Stone’s pool table, to sleeping in a van, at Mcdonalds. Freakin awesome. My friends/musicians/family are making this ride very unique. Love you.”

Born and raised in Wichita, KS. Always around music. He loved making beats and composing at an early age. Singing was an afterthought. Songwriting was too. His music ranges from blues, jazz, soul, to R&B. He strives to catch your attention.
