about

All of the music for this album has been written in the last few years. It was originally going to be me on guitar and a few local musicians, and then amazing things started happening that I would never have imagined……. and the Universe smiled.

Victor Miranda had just come off the road with Al Di Meola's World Tour and was available to lay down the bass tracks. I have always heard Saxophone (in my mind) in several of my songs and boy oh boy did I ever get an amazing one in Craig Christman. Rick Cutlip and I had played together in a band in the 70's. His Stratocaster has graced the music of some of the biggest names in the music industry (Chuck Negron...etc). The first time I heard Stuart Shelton on keyboard I was totally blown away. The acoustic guitars were played by myself and my friend John Witt and Ann Graph added a lovely harmony counter point to my melodies. Then mix in Chris Blood, a Berklee College of Music trained drummer and exceptional recording engineer....you get my drift. I am still not sure how I got all these world-class jazz/rock musicians on my CD…..I am very grateful!

Track Name: Say Goodbye
Lyrics

I saw you on the street today after all this time.
What can I do? What can I say to you?
Broken dreams and moonless nights,
You looked so sad. We chose the life.
We chose the life we had.

I’m not the one who said goodbye.
I’m not the one who made you cry.
I’m not the one who said goodbye.
I’m not the one who made you cry.

Broken dreams and moonless nights,
You looked so sad. We chose the life.
We chose the life we had.
Broken dreams and moonless nights,
You looked so sad. We chose the life.
We chose the life we had.
Track Name: The Rain Falls Down
Lyrics


LONG, LONG AGO, IN ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME I FELL IN LOVE.

THE RAIN FALLS DOWN. IT COVERS YOU WITHOUT A SOUND.
TEARS I CRIED LONG, LONG AGO HAVE DIED.
DARK AND DEEP THE SHADOWS CLING WHILE WE ALL SLEEP.

THE RAIN FALLS DOWN. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN.
THE RAIN FALLS DOWN. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN.

LONG, LONG AGO...

THE YEARS GO BY. I HEAR YOUR VOICE IN THE MIDNIGHT SKY.
COLD AND CLEAR, LIKE SHADOW DREAMS THAT DISAPPEAR
INTO MORNING GREY... JUST WOUNDED SOULS THAT FADE AWAY.

THE RAIN FALLS DOWN. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN.
THE RAIN FALLS DOWN. THE RAIN FALLS DOWN.

LONG, LONG AGO, IN ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME I FELL IN LOVE.
Track Name: Sorrow Sleeping
Lyrics

I knew the time would come,
Broken free of everyone.
Through darkened days, soft summer nights,
In the stillness of... sorrow sleeping.
In the stillness of... sorrow sleeping.

Say a prayer for the ones who cried.
Shed a tear for the ones who lied.
Open up and try to find!

I think of what was lost.
Refuse to count the cost.
Desperation cries in the dead of night.
In the stillness of... sorrow sleeping,
In the stillness of... sorrow sleeping.

Say a prayer for the ones who cried.
Shed a tear for the ones who lied.
Open up and try to find!
Track Name: Dressed in Blue
Lyrics

A RAINY NIGHT, DRESSED ALL IN BLUE,
LIKE YOU MY LOVE. THE SADNESS STILL HOLDS YOU.
THE WIND AND RAIN, FIRE FROM THE SKY, THE SILENT TEARS
ALONE AT NIGHT YOU CRY.

AND STILL YOU TRY TO FIND YOUR WAY!
AND IT GETS HARDER EVERYDAY!

A SHOOTING STAR, DIES IN THE NIGHT.
LIKE ONES WE LOVE AND TRY TO HOLD SO TIGHT.
A RAINY NIGHT, DRESSED ALL IN BLUE,
LIKE YOU MY LOVE. THE SADNESS STILL HOLDS YOU.
LIKE YOU MY LOVE. THE SADNESS STILL HOLDS YOU.
LIKE YOU MY LOVE.
Track Name: The Ravens Fly (21)
Lyrics

DEATH WAITS FOR ME LIKE A SERPENT IN THE SEA.
I’VE GOT TO FIND MY WAY HOME.
DANGER ABOUNDS, I HEAR THE GUN FIRE SOUNDS.
I FEEL THE BEAT OF MY HEART!

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY-ONE I SEARCH THE SKY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK HOME.

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, AS I KICK DOWN THE DOOR.
I SMELL THE FEAR IN THE NIGHT.
I SEE THEIR EYES AND THE LOOK OF SURPRISE.
I WONDER WHAT THEY THINK OF ME.

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY- ONE I SEARCH THE SKY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK HOME.

A WARRIOR’S PRIDE THAT WE CARRY DEEP INSIDE,
I DO NOT WANT TO LOSE.
POLITCIANS TALK, BUT THEY DON’T WALK THE WALK
THAT I SEE EVERYDAY.

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY- ONE I SEARCH THE SKY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK HOME.

TWENTY-ONE DON’T WANT TO DIE.
TWENTY-ONE THE RAVENS FLY.
TWENTY-ONE I’VE GOT TO GET BACK... HOME... HOME...
Track Name: Love Gone Cold
Lyrics

I know you are sad.
I know your heart is breaking in two.
I know you.
You’ve lost your way bit by bit and through troubled days.
You say that you can’t find,
which way to turn,
You try so hard I know.

A love gone cold, a trust betrayed,
a love gone cold as stone.

A love gone cold, a trust betrayed
a love gone cold as stone.

Day breaks to dawn,
another night spent alone.
I know you’re sad,
I know your heart is breaking in two.
I know you.
Track Name: The Music Plays
Lyrics

THE MUSIC PLAYS AND LOVERS DANCE, HEARTS BEAT IN TIME.
I SING THIS SONG. I SING THIS SONG FOR YOU.
A MELODY THAT BREAKS THE HEART,
LIKE YOURS AND MINE, TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE,
TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE IN TWO.
AND STILL WE DANCE. AND STILL WE DANCE.

I MET A GIRL WITH THE SADDEST EYES, LOVELY AND KIND.
SHE MAKES ME THINK, SHE MAKES ME THINK OF YOU.
“I’M STILL AFRAID TO TAKE A CHANCE”, SAID THE GIRL IN BLUE.
I MUST GET BACK, I MUST GET BACK TO YOU.
AND STILL WE DANCE. AND STILL WE DANCE.

THE MUSIC PLAYS AND LOVERS DANCE. HEARTS BEAT IN TIME.
I SING THIS SONG, I SING THIS SONG FOR YOU.
A MELODY THAT BREAKS THE HEART
LIKE YOURS AND MINE, TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE,
TWO HEARTS THAT BROKE IN TWO.
Track Name: I Hold You Close
Lyrics

I HOLD YOU CLOSE, I HOLD A MEMORY,
AND TIME JUST FADES TO GREY.
A PHOTOGRAPH, TATTERED AND TORN,
A PIECE OF YESTERDAY.


LIKE A NIGHT ON A STORMY SEA, I’VE LOST MY WAY,
BURNING BRIGHT AND RUNNING FREE...
LIKE A NIGHT ON A STORMY SEA, I’VE LOST MY WAY,
BURNING BRIGHT AND RUNNING FREE, TO LIVE... ANOTHER DAY.


I HOLD YOU CLOSE, I HOLD A MEMORY,
AND TIME JUST FADES TO GREY.
A SILVER LIGHT, A CANDLE BURNING BRIGHT,
AND GRIEF THAT TEARS BETRAY.


LIKE A NIGHT ON A STORMY SEA, I’VE LOST MY WAY,
BURNING BRIGHT AND RUNNING FREE TO LIVE... ANOTHER DAY.


I HOLD YOU CLOSE, I HOLD A MEMORY,
AND TIME JUST FADES TO GREY.
A PHOTOGRAPH, TATTERED AND TORN,
A PIECE OF YESTERDAY.
Track Name: Silhouettes and Shadows
Lyrics

Silhouettes and shadows fall across the room,
Sunday morning 10 AM the month of June.
Ashen faces lined with pain, seem to play a sad refrain.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.

Silhouettes and shadows fall across her face.
Bitter tears and a broken heart seem out of place.
Tragedy on a summer day, We try to wish the time away.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.
Bereft of joy we sit and stare at an empty chair.
At an empty chair... at an empty chair...
