about

This project is the product of 3 years of living! In this time, I learned to play every instrument you hear on this album (except the trumpet). I learned to sing and write lyrics. I learned how to arrange and compose music. In this time, I read John Steinbeck and Lao Tzu and Kurt Vonnegut and Mario Puzo. I learned classical physics at a graduate school level. I learned that the world is bigger than I can even imagine. But more than all that, I learned about love and the effect that its sometimes presence and sometimes absence has had in my life. Love and creativity are inextricably linked. You are either inspired by Love and create feverishly to commune with the joy and fulfillment and beauty it embodies, or you are inspired by Love In Absentia and work feverishly to exorcise the formless grinning monsters who wax in the darkness like the moon. Often, its both...but Love is always at the root. This project is layered and complex; eclectic and eccentric; humorous, bright and exuberant; dark, deep, and difficult. It is what I imagine hanging out with me is like. And so if you're into it, sit down, grab a coffee or a glass of wine, press play, and let's hang!

Track Name: Monster Mash
Something Ain't Right
It's not how it's supposed to be

Why is she here
Dancing so slow on me

Baby tell me
What am I supposed to do

I'm Monster Mashing these cakes
When I'd rather be Loving You

Verse 2:

You never forget
You never get over love

The feelings still here
Everything is here but us

Baby tell me
What am I supposed to do

I'm Monster Mashing these cakes
When I'd rather be loving you
Track Name: Already
Verse 1:

Now you thought that she was yours 'cause she slept over
But you did all the things that losers do
Massaging her feet
Breakfast in Bed
She told me how she feels about you

She thinks that you're pathetic
She would never let you be her man
But you don't seem to get it
'Cause you put your heart right in her hand

How could you be so stupid man

Hook:
She wants me Already
She needs me Already
She loves me Already
While you wait for her call

She touched me Already
She kissed me Already
We made love Already
She don't love you at all no

Verse 2:
And when we're done she talks about you
When she wants to have a laugh
All she ever does is laugh

Did you think she dreams about you
Did you think she was in love just because she texts you back

Step your game up

She's up in my room Marvin Gaye, High Heels, Lingerie, and Makeup
And when you called her on the phone
She said she was still at home

This girl likes making movies
But you aint in the picture
She treats me like a god
But you aint in her scripture

And at night you dream about her
hoping that tomorrow
that if you say the right thing
Love will surely follow

Hook:
She wants me Already
She needs me Already
She loves me Already
While you wait for her call

She touched me Already
She kissed me Already
We made love Already
And when were making love

I Monster Mash Cakes Already
I Beat Breaks Already
She Screamed my name Already
So you should just be smart

Come off it Already
You Lost it Already
Just Stop it Already
But you still give your heart why?

Bridge:
Find another Woman

Hook:
She wants me Already
She needs me Already
She loves me Already
While you wait for her call

She touched me Already
She kissed me Already
We made love Already
She don't love you at all no
Track Name: Eric's Wife Is Beautiful
Eric's Wife has a Funny Face
They just moved out her Mama's Place
Mama fries everything in a pan
So Eric's Wife needs a diet plan

Eric's Friends would Laugh and Laugh
When Eric said his Girl was Bad
At the wedding Eric's friends Gave up
And Just let Eric be in Love

(Symphonic Interlude)

Scott Knew Eric when they were Kids
Scott doesn't have too long to live
The things he's worked for his whole life
Can't be saved by a surgeons knife

James has conflict in his Job
James earns fame from his walk with god
but how he wishes God didn't know
Bout the men he meets while is wife is home

Billy shows off his trophy wives
but they only love his bonus size
and the kids never got along dad
and his hot sexy bitches in his bachelor pad

Eric's Wife is Beautiful
True Love is so unusual
Her deeper soul and heart of grace
made him miss that funny face

(Symphonic Interlude)

Eric's friends would laugh and laugh
When Eric said his girl was bad
But what was missing in their lives
Eric Had with his lovely wife.
Track Name: Never Say Goodbye
No I
Don't believe in Love right now
We can do a Lover's Dance
But I can't handle romance

No I
Traded in my heart for a dream
Love is patient Love is kind
But right now I'm on my grind

and they say that having everything is nothing
without it
but theres too much going on for me to worry
about it
and you know just how I feel but still you go that extra mile

and thats the reason why

I'll Never Say Goodbye
To You
Oh Baby
'Cause I love the way that you believe in me
Make me feel
in my life

I'll Never Say Goodbye

Thank you for always encouraging me
When I'm chasing down something too far off to see
You inspire me like no one else can do
Crash Landed on my Planet now you fly me to the moon

Baby If I slow my roll can I win the whole grand prix
I think not
I think not
but oh you've been my lifeboat when my ship is lost at sea
for all the times you rescued me

I'll Never Say Goodbye
To You
Oh Baby
'Cause I love the way that you believe in me
Make me feel
in my life

I'll Never Say Goodbye
To You
Oh Baby
'Cause you love me even though you set me free
free to dream
free to fly

I'll Never Say Goodbye

Girl you deserve the love
You want from us
You give so much
But I'm out of touch sometimes

No you're not
Simply an afterthought
I just got a whole lot on my mind

What to say
Don't want to run away
on another day
Maybe love can find a way

Way oh (4x)

I'll Never Say Goodbye
To You
Oh Baby
'Cause I love the way that you believe in me
Make me feel
in my life
Track Name: After the Rain
After the Rain
There'll be no more pain

Hard to Face the Day
My smile up and went away
Pinky went and Lost the Brain
Sunny Skies are turning Gray
And she didn't even think to say

Beware the storm
Its bigger than a hurricane
Pressure drop inside my brain
Thundering on each refrain

Those Memories
Positano is a lovely place
Let the ocean wash away the shame

After the Rain
There'll be no more Pain
Track Name: After All
Now that there's no ever after
I guess it was love after all
Sometimes I wish time would go backwards
cuz baby I really dropped the ball

I've heard it said that I'm a good lover
I can't say the same as a friend
But after all we meant to each other
Maybe we can find love again

After All

I heard you got a new situation
and Girl I can't say Im surprised
I met me a few just to try something new
But they cant compare to you in my eyes

I hope that makes you happy,
But when that bullshit comes to an end
I'll drop everything just to see you
Maybe we can find love again

After All
