about

I know it sounds terribly cliché, but this is the album I’ve wanted to make all my life. Not to shortchange the others, but Let Go is the most honest and authentic project I’ve created – musically, sonically, lyrically. Didn’t leave any stone unturned; didn’t want any regrets after everything was said and done.

You know those CDs liner notes that tell you not to make copies of the CD and give it to others? This is NOT one of those. In fact, I want you to make copies. I’m begging you to make copies. I want you to make them and give them out to everyone you know – your best friend, your next door neighbor, your grandma, the guy who sits next to you on the subway every day. Post the download link on Facebook and send it out to every email contact you have. The whole point of this project is for it to be heard by as many people as possible. Thanks for helping to make this happen!

Track Name: Begin
He says this is the beginning
This is where we stand
Captivated by a world that waits on helping hands
And what we hold dear is here to stay and remain

He says this is now the place
From where we will learn to capture and hold grace
To give and to discern
And from here we slumber and then awake

He says this is now the time
To hold your neighbor’s hand
To search for the rhymes and the reasons of this land
And all of this is certain to lift your spirits within

I am one, I am peace
I am love, full of grace
If you let me in, into your soul
I’ll fill your heart with something more

He says this is where you are
You gotta seize the space before you – you’ve traveled so far
Let the spirit touch you
And feel this love embrace you
And feel this love embrace you
And feel this love embrace you, right now
And feel this love embrace you

He says this is the beginning
Track Name: Lifeline
I love to see you smile
Won't you stay with me a while
And we can walk together into another day
For once, for this time
Won't you tow the other line
Ignore my insecurities and throw your cares away

You need me
And I need you

Now, in this time and in this place
I can feel your spirit
Move, like a rhyme and not a race
Lifting me up out of these
Blues I've been living with for far too long
I'm not that strong, no
You're everything to me
You can be my lifeline

The ship's out of port
And the storm that came before
Has left a wave of uncertainty in its place
You don't like being the one
Constantly undone
But to try and keep the peace is more than you can take

So just let go
I'll be there

Now, in this time and in this place
I can feel your spirit
Move, like a rhyme and not a race
Lifting you up out of these
Blues you've been living with for far too long
You're not that strong, no
You everything to me
I can be your lifeline

Now, in this time and in this place
I can feel your spirit move.....

Now, in this time and in this place
We can feel our spirits
Move, like a rhyme and not a race
Lifting us up out of these
Blues we've been living with for far too long
We can be strong, oh
If you stay here with me
If you can be my lifeline
I will be your lifeline
If you can be my lifeline
I will be your lifeline
Track Name: Where There's Love
I've been down this road before
I know every twist and turn
How to live it up and live out loud
How to keep from getting burned
I've made a shell around to surround me
Protect my insides
Cause I don't really like it when others see
The truth behind the lies
Is there any light in this darkness
Illuminate the pain
Where there's salvation

Where there's love, where there's love
Where there's love, oh the love

It was all I could hope for
It was all that I'd need
Someone else to walk and talk with me
Bring an end to my lonely misery
You were there when the night fell
You were there at first light
And now I know when I hear the sound of your tears
That everything's gonna be alright
It's not that the road isn't hard anymore
There are burdens still to bear
But I don't go it alone

Where there's love....

So stay with me and see us both through
Cause no one else can show the way like you do

They say that grace is like coming back home
And the roads lead us there
All the journeys, all my trials, I know it's true

Where there's love....
Track Name: Better Off
Susie leaves at dawn’s light from the greyhound station
Taking her far away to unknown destination
She’s running from fear cause uncertainty’s here
She’s not sure if she fits in his life
And when tomorrow comes he’ll find nobody home
It’s the pain that keeps her alive

Isn’t it better off to love
Isn’t it better off to love
Isn’t it better off to love

There’s an empty chair at the family table
It’s where their daughter would be if she only were able
It’s been just a year since she told them through tears
That she’d given her love to another
And they’d love it if she would find solace in he
But till then they can’t seem to accept her

Isn’t it better off to love
Isn’t it better off to love
Isn’t it better off to love
Sure would be better off to love

When the world’s stuck in its madness
And we’re pressured to resign
You know there’s a better way if we reach a little deeper
In time, in time

The ring he holds in his hand, it feels heavy like labor
The diamond shines in the light, revealing fears that he harbors
Cause this step that he takes means he must face his mistakes
And try to move on out of "never"
But if he trusts in this love that seems sent from above
Then his promise can live on forever

Isn’t it better off to love
Isn’t it better off to love
Isn’t it better off to love
Sure would be better off to love
Track Name: When The Day Comes
I think it's gonna be fine
Gonna do it right and take my time
Not rush into things& mess 'em up all over again
I wanted one more chance
Told you I was a victim of circumstance
Caught between my head and my heart it wasn't part of the plan

Don't you understand
Let me tell you that I'm a different man
I'm much better....

When the day comes
When the wait is gone
When all is said and done
I'll be there with you
When the day comes
When you long for closure
I'll still be loving you

It wasn't always this way
I can still remember how you'd say
That life is a ride and what's inside carries the load
I know I stepped outa line
But now I'm making up lost time
And I'm not gonna rest till we have found our way home

You still aren't so sure
You're wondering cause you have been there before
But this time it's different

When the day comes
When the wait is gone
When all is said and done
I'll be there with you
When the day comes
When you long for closure
I'll still be loving you

Don't you understand
That I'm a different man
I'm much better....

When the day comes
When the wait is gone
When all is said and done
I'll be there with you
When the day comes
When you long for closure
I'll still be loving you
Track Name: The Dance/Grace
She's high above the world
Flying us air
Baby in her lap
She knows more than she lets on
Of what awaits her when
She finally touches down

Cause there's a man at gate 3 with flowers and a hope that fills his heart
It's been two long months since she left town and his world was ripped apart
He's hoping there will be a chance to have a new fresh start
This time, this time

He remembers how it was
Back when everything
Seemed to go so well
They danced the dance so long
But when both tried to lead
They never made it home

You know her daddy told her that timing is the glue that makes it tight
Cause two roads have to merge to one for things to work out right
And when she saw the road they were dancing down, that's when she took to flight
Away, far away

Life is what we live before till our demise
Between the new hellos and old goodbyes
And those we dance with, they will never die
Cause everyone's a part of us, everyone's a part of us, everyone's a part of us....

She's high above the world
She's down now on the ground
She's walking through that gate
He hands her the bouquet
He reaches for his child
He smiles to celebrate
