About
I began writing poetry which I realized was good therapy. I then began to dabble in song lyrics. My first songs were long ballads. After a critique I began writing more in line with typical song writing. I've never been trained for this. I get a line in my head and the lyrics just fall onto the screen. My archive consists of roughly 225 songs. Of those I feel that 20 or so would be attractive for someone to put music to. It's probably more than 20, but I'm biased and being honest as possible. A lot of my better songs are Christian and/or contemporary country. Some songs are very deep and meant to touch someone's heart while others can be funny.

PUSH ME HIGHER Push me higher daddy So high that I can see What lurks beyond the backyard fence That’s always blocking me, oh- oh Push me higher daddy Give me wings to fly Out above this great big world Way up into the sky Oh-oh, push me higher, push me hi

MACBETH
When I woke up you weren’t here
And I went searching everywhere
I didn’t know you’d really go
It wasn’t clear, it wasn’t clear
So I made the bed up tight
After a long and restless night
I wasn’t sure what next to do
Was it me or was it you

Now my eyes are clearing
In the light of day
The sun is shining brightly
And I’m on my way…

I’m taking back my life
Too long upon that knife
The razor sharpness of your tongue
Cutting me up cutting me down
No longer stabbed to death
I’d love to quote Macbeth
“Is this a dagger which I see…”
No longer me, no longer me



My life is headed to a place
A simpler one I know
All this confusion in my life
It had to go, it had to go
And in the middle of this mess
Slicing away while in a dress
Not the sweetness of a girl
No, just a sharp and angled whirl

I’m taking back my life
Too long upon that knife
The razor sharpness of your tongue
Cutting me up cutting me down
No longer stabbed to death
I’d love to quote Macbeth
“Is this a dagger which I see…”
No longer me, no longer me
I’m taking back my life
Too long upon that knife
The razor sharpness of your tongue
Cutting me up cutting me down
No longer stabbed to death
I’d love to quote Macbeth
“Is this a dagger which I see…”
No longer me, no longer me
