Sittin here and lookin back
Gazin down these well worn tracks
I've done some things I'd never tell ya
The little stories and twisted schemes
The vicious wishes, the grandest dreams
The useless lies I'd try to sell ya

I've felt a broken heart
I broke a few, I've done my part
Adding to the sum of love's equation
Clear days and stormy nights
Sweet embraces and deadly fights
And I've not reached my destination

The train of life
Will stop at many stations on the way
(It's waiting right outside,
It'll take you for a ride)
The pain of love
Is just as necessary
Let it wrap you in it's tender arms
And never let you go

A hero's task, a villian's feast
Compassion's kiss and rage released
The journey's not by reservation
The trains are long, their tracks entwined
The fare is steep, your heart is blind
But love can bring illumination

I'm a guitarist, singer, and songwriter from central Kentucky.
My music is a mix of many different influences; from the country and western I heard as a child to some stuff I heard yesterday.
I write songs primarily to make you shake your money maker. I'm not deep, and I'm certainly no virtuoso. I just want you to have a good time.
