about

This album is very personal to me. It was recorded during an eight month long period after I was diagnosed with Graves Disease. It explores my life after this event and the journey that has brought me to where I am today.

Track Name: Your Love
Verse 1
I had to take a breather.
Just need a little space.
I nearly lost my patience.
I almost lost my way.
This pain inside my body.
Brought on by Graves Disease
Can’t let the world around me.
Control my sanity.

Chorus
Take this all away from me.
I want to give you all of my love.
Take this all away from me.
The only thing I want is your love.

Verse 2
Hold on baby. Hold on.
I want to take my time before I write this song.
Cuz’ there’s a lot of shit I want to get off my mind.
And I feel like I never have time.
Cuz’ time don’t give a damn ‘bout your feelings.
And time don’t give a damn ‘bout your faults.
So if you want to make a change, make it baby.
Cuz’ time will always tell you that you’re wrong.
Only thing I need is to fall deep in love.
Dirt on my feet.
And the skies above.
Only thing I need is a woman in my life.
Shoulder to lean on.
And some apple pie.

Chorus
Take this all away from me.
I want to give you all of my love. (Take it all away)
Take this all away from me.
The only thing I want is your love. (I want you love)

Verse 3
I wake up in the morning and I thank God for this day.
I thank him for my life and ask him please protect my ways.
I try to meet him halfway and I walk among the clouds.
But every time it rains the water pulls me right back down.
The harder I try the faster I hate it.
The faster I fall the harder the pavement.
The harder I try the faster I hate it.
The faster I fall the harder the pavement.
Only thing I need is to fall deep in love.
Dirt on my feet.
And the skies above.
Only thing I need is a woman in my life.
Shoulder to lean on.
And some apple pie.

Chorus
Take this all away from me.
I want to give you all of my love.
Take this all away from me.
The only thing I want is your love.
Track Name: Peace of Mind
Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.

Verse 1
Hey little boy, you think your so slick.
You try to hustle everybody just to get rich.
You take their money and say,
“A big return upon the dollar”.
But when they come a callin’ you gave ‘em the wrong number.
Another victim!
You’re just a little motherfucker.
I know deep down inside you think the workin’ man’s a sucka.
Well let me tell ya’, I’d rather work a 9 to 5,
Than be stuck inside a cell and hear my momma cry.

Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.

Verse 2
Hey little girl, I see you working hard.
You gotta feed your daughter so you work a couple jobs.
You love your baby, you want her in a private school.
But her father ain’t around and he ain’t helpin’ you.
You stay awake at night.
And watch your baby sleep.
And think about her future.
And what you want and need.
But what you want and need are two completely different things.
So you go and shake it shake it all upon that stage.

Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.

Bridge
This is not a guide for how to live your life.
It’s just what I see.
I’ll never judge a man for his actions
‘Cuz the finger’s pointing back at me.

Chorus
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get down now.
I give you a little peace of mind.
You wanna get funky.
Track Name: Sunny Days
Chorus
Sunny days
Your sunny days
Are always on my mind.
Sunny days
Your sunny days
Are always right on time.

Verse 1
When I came to this earth.
I thought I’d never find myself.
And when I became a man.
Such loneliness I felt.
But then you looked right at me.
And my eyes shot laser beams.
I’ll be your Clark Kent boy baby.
You’ll be my Lois Lane lover lady.
I’ll be your Clark Kent boy baby.
You’ll be my Lois Lane lover lady.

Chorus
Sunny days
Your sunny days
Are always on my mind.
Sunny days
Your sunny days
Are always right on time.

Verse 2
Ooh you know just how I feel.
And when you put your arms around me.
I’m like the man of steel.
Ooh you know just what I like.
And when you leave me girl.
It’s like kryptonite.
I’ll be your Clark Kent boy baby.
You’ll be my Lois Lane lover lady.
I’ll be your Clark Kent boy baby.
You’ll be my Lois Lane lover lady.

Bridge
No matter how high I fly.
I could never feel as high.
As your love makes me feel.

Chorus
Sunny days
Your sunny days
Are always on my mind.
Sunny days
Your sunny days
Are always right on time.
Track Name: I Don't Mind
Chorus
Ridin’ in my Chevy 4-4
Barely made it through the back door.
You ain’t gotta worry ‘bout me.
Do what you want, do what you want.

Verse 1
My life is full of pain.
Pleasure it feels the same.
Sometimes I wanna be alone.
Lay it down my weary soul.
World is fast just wanna go slow.
Everything that tries to take control.

I don’t mind those words you say.
i want to go anyway.
I want to go anyway.
I don’t mind those words you say.
i want to go anyway.
I want to get lit today.
So I’m just…

Chorus
Ridin’ in my Chevy 4-4
Barely made it through the back door.
You ain’t gotta worry ‘bout me.
Do what you want, do what you want.

Verse 2
My life is full of pain.
Pleasure it feels the same.
Sometimes I wanna be alone.
Walkin’ down these streets of gold.
Where I’m going you know I don’t know.
All I know is that my feet are cold.

I don’t mind those words you say.
i want to go anyway.
I want to go anyway.
I don’t mind those words you say.
i want to go anyway.
I want to get lit today.
So I’m just…

Chorus
Ridin’ in my Chevy 4-4
Barely made it through the back door.
You ain’t gotta worry ‘bout me.
Do what you want, do what you want.

Verse 3
You say you want you dreams.
You say you gave your all.
You say there’s nothing left to say at all.
But that’s not sayin’ nothin'.
But that’s not sayin’ nothin'.
That’s not sayin’ nothin at all.

I don’t mind those words you say.
i want to go anyway.
I want to go anyway.
I don’t mind those words you say.
i want to go anyway.
I want to get lit today.
So I’m just…

Chorus
Ridin’ in my Chevy 4-4
Barely made it through the back door.
You ain’t gotta worry ‘bout me.
Do what you want, do what you want.
Track Name: Glory
Verse 1
In the purple moonlight.
All the stars they shine so bright.
And all the horses die.
When you saw that woman.
You looked into the night.
You never told a lie.
In the heat of passion.
Warm in her embrace.
You gave a piece of you.
And I stand here singing.
A son you never faced.
And I’m looking into you.

Chorus
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his failure.
See myself and I’m his savior.
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his story.
See myself in all his glory.

Verse 2
In the purple moonlight.
All the stars they shine so bright.
And all the horses die.
When you left that woman.
Your son began to cry.
All the tears he held inside.
You forgot the memory.
The memory of the love.
The love you gave away.
Now your son has returned.
A memory paper thin.
And he’s looking for himself.

Chorus
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his failure.
See myself and I’m his savior.
And as I look into my father’s eyes.
I see myself in all his story.
See myself in all his glory.

Bridge
I know that it gets hard sometimes.
‘Cuz the choices that you’ve made.
Have brought you down today.
I know that it gets hard sometimes.
‘Cuz the things that you’ve said.
Have left you on your head,
But you should know that…
Blood is thicker than water.
You know I’ll never hate you father.
I just want to be closer.
To the man who made me what I am.

Outro
In the purple moonlight.
All the stars they shine so bright.
And all the horses die.

Whole new destination.
Take your eyes off the road.
Whole new destination.
You’re gonna have to drive alone.
Track Name: The Fallout
Chorus
I don’t give a fuck about the pieces.
I care about you.
I don’t give a fuck about the pieces.
I care about you.

Verse 1
Gotta do somethin’ ‘bout it.
Gotta do somethin’ ‘bout it.
I never should have went there.
I never should have went there.
But you never want to talk about it.
You never want to talk about it.
I guess I had to go there.
I never should have went there.

Hey!

This is what you want.
I think it’s what you want.

Chorus
I don’t give a fuck about the pieces.
I care about you.
I don’t give a fuck about the pieces.
I care about you.

But I feel so bad about it.
And I feel so bad about it.
I never should have went there.
You know I had to take it there.
I don’t care if you cry about it.
I don’t care if we scream and shout it.
I only want to help you.
I only want the best for you.

Hey!

This is what you want.
I think it’s what you want.

Chorus
I don’t give a fuck about the pieces.
I care about you.
I don’t give a fuck about the pieces.
I care about you.
I don’t give a fuck about The Fallout.
I care about you.
I don’t give a fuck about the pieces.
I care about you.

Breakdown.
Track Name: Rubik's Cube ft. Rayintosh
Verse 1
We started off so amazed.
We started out so amused.
The spaces that we shared were passion.
We promised that we’d never move.
But now we got all mixed up.
A rainbow that was shot down.
The feeling that we shared is missing.
I know we’ll never find it now.

Chorus
So many different colors.
So many different sides.
I tried to put us back together.
I tried to make it right.
I guess I’m not a genius.
You always had me fooled.
You turn me around and upside down.
Just like a Rubik’s Cube.

Verse 2
You tell me that we’re better off.
You tell me there were better times.
I think you’re tryna play it off.
‘Cuz I see the tears in your eyes.
I never want to be complacent.
I hate it that we’re so confused.
There has to be a resolution.
I want to play the game with you.

Chorus
So many different colors.
So many different sides.
I tried to put us back together.
I tried to make it right.
I guess I’m not a genius.
You always had me fooled.
You turn me around and upside down.
Just like a Rubik’s Cube.
Track Name: Another Lover
Verse 1
I wake up all alone.
Roll over check my phone.
You never called.
And I don’t blame you.
I blame myself for the nights I stay awake.
I build you up and I break you down.
You give and I take.

Chorus
I don’t need another lover.
I just want someone to talk to.
I don’t need another lover.
I just need a friend.

Verse 2
I go out with my friends.
Come home with someone new.
Dressed in red.
And I feel no pain.
And I feel no joy.
I don’t feel a thing at all.
I take one down.
And I look around.
The footsteps in the hall.

Chorus
I don’t need another lover.
I just want someone to talk to.
I don’t need another lover.
I just need a friend.

Bridge
I just need a friend to hold me.
Take away my pride.
I really could use somebody.
To listen when I cry.
All this wasted time.
Competing against myself.
I thought I was fine.
But it’s a detriment to my health.
And still I’m saying…

Chorus
I don’t need another lover.
I just want someone to talk to.
I don’t need another lover.
I just need a friend.
Track Name: Take Me Back
Verse 1
There used to be a time I was filled with laughter.
There used to be a time I prayed to God.
There used to be a time I valued friendship.
There used to be a time I believed in love.
There used to be a time with empty spaces.
There used to be a place where we were lost.
So tell me all the years you think you wasted.
It’s never too late to break the clock.

Chorus
Take me back.
To the very, the very first time.
Take me back.
To the place I want to be.

Verse 2
I want to love again.
Feel again.
Hate again.
Create again.
I want to touch again.
Lust again.
Dream again.
Fail again.
I want to go back and study the mountains.
I want to paint the harvest moon.
I want to pour out my soul in poems.
I want to sing the Delta Blues.
Get lost in a maze of passion.
Ride the strip in Hollywood.
Call all my brothers and sisters.
And say “I love you, I love you
And I miss you so much.
Meet me at the temple.
Where we can dance and fight.
And find the light.
That brings us closer to home”.

Chorus
Take me back.
To the very, the very first time.
Take me back.
To the place I want to be.

Bridge
You only get one life.
But there’s plenty of choices.
So choose wisely.
So choose wisely.
You only have one voice.
But there’s plenty of stories.
So speak softly.
So speak softly.
