Girl Of My World She's the girl of my world she blows my clouds away her sunlight echoes beautifully in the valley here each day she knows that I'm expecting someday to follow through and find the girl of my world beneath her sky so vast and blue Girl of my world where's your window? your mirror looks fine I can't see your shadow if I search for you, my love will I search in vain? Girl of my world you need me to keep you precious company there's memories to shelter us from the fire and the rain. When twilights gold is waning I can see her silver vail Stretched across the evening celestial diamond rings on its trail the moon becomes her blue eye that watches life below her teardrops deepen the seas because we'll never be alone Girl of my world wait for me someday we will be in reach if I search for you, my love just will I search in vain? Every night I count your stars wondering just where you are there's memories to shelter us from the fire and the rain.

I Don't Follow My fun is no one's I'm one to be alone no heart or offense is meant to be given I'm brave I'm saved she's strange they say (chorus) but I don't follow sure don't follow any heart but mine x2 I stay inside I hide while they play but I've got my record collection my head and my faith they try to make me cry she's strange they say (chorus) When I leave here I will go to where the European kisses blow where there's something new to learn and see everyday where I can find the friends in my own kind of people they're out there far away My fun is no one's I'm one to be alone I don't follow any heart but mine.

Love You Tuesday I dream for your comfort I dream for your smile So I tried not to let on that I'd changed my style under the streetlight moments together under the starlight forever (Chorus) Tuesday sends me over to you babe brings me back to you now now Tuesday sends me over to you babe brings me back to you now now My life was confusion my heart had no name too many evenings were spent here in shame under the streetlight moments together under the starlight forever (Chorus) (Bridge) When I'm alone I find something is growing inside I can't hide She comes to me oh so strong so strong that I don't belong to you Time will press on I will say my goodbye and I will love whoever stays with me tonight under the streetlight moments together under the staright forever under the streetlight moments together under the staright forever

I Wish I Could Hate You I wish I could hate you but it's hard to find faults I'm looking in the right place I've opened up your vaults You don't seem very happy to hear me complain I wish I could hate you or meet you halfway meet you halfway. I wish I could outsmart you know what you're all about I'm always asking the wrong things forget you don't like to shout and you say you're too sensitive I'm not trying to make you insane I only wish I could hate you or meet you halfway meet you halfway. I wish I could berate you like you do to our friends like how we thought Chris was crazy for hitchhiking his ass out west I'm not playing the judge here without saying first I'm a big ape I wish I could hate you or meet you halfway or meet you halfway.

Dream Of Holding You Again Whoa If I've been to your mansion house looking to take you to my home you'll see I'm tired of walking around I might want to relax on your front door your daddy might want to kick me out on the street your mama might eat you alive for looking so pretty getting all these city boys wanting you all the time (chorus) When I take you to the station i'll say, "Will you marry me on the midnight train?" When I take you in my arms I'll say, "Will you never make me have to dream of holding you again?" I'm trying to tell you for the 40th time I'm not with anybody because I'm holding out for you you know what kind of loving is on my mind it's the kind that gives you shivers but it's warm and true. I want to tell you my life ain't complete but I'm a happy man it's happiness I'll need in order to treat you the best that I can I can't believe you think I'm putting you on you say you think I'm a tease but I'll try to tell that I'm a desperate man dying of love's disease. (chorus)

The Dark Summer Mountain See if I care If you don't hear what's going on in my mind wish I could do that too I'm taking a trip a nice long picturesque trip and I know that you're blind so I doubt that you'll come too (Chorus) Oh the dark summer mountain will have us back anytime Oh the dark summer mountain staying there shouldn't be a crime Everyone there sits in the heat running after dreams to meet everybody's in despair they got wounds in their eyes it's kind of hard to make out who's real and who's fake everbody's the same they've got something to hide (chorus) Waiting for the winds of change to burn out and fade away standing in the waiting line me and many other friends bending what should not be bent something deep inside our minds knowing there's no place to hide (Chorus x2)

Killshiver 01:51
Killshiver You run your scheme so well you plan my pain so well do I need to love your shell? (chorus)Because I really don't want it now Because I really don't want to care I'm talking to thin air I guess you think it's fair to kill to shiver to kill shiver Poison me with lies it's better than advice go roll your fucking dice (chorus x2)

Wrap Me In Your Hair Now I'll make it up to you Spare a little juice I surely pull you through We'll take this point of view and put it out of use wrap me in your hair it's time we played You see the way we stand right now you wonder if I care I doubt that I'd know how because for all this time I've told you I don't lie when you try to read my mind my feelings change Na na na na... Now I'll make it up to you Spare a little juice I surely pull you through We'll take this point of view and put it out of use wrap me in your hair it's time we played

So Deeply Inside You No one told me when I was alone I'd meet someone who I loved and turned around but it's happened before and I'm facing the floor hoping that this gets off the ground Last time I met somebody so fine it fell apart like a tall ocean wave and it came in so fast and it never went back and I never felt so high again (Chorus) Do You feel like I do - do you feel me so deeply inside of you Do You feel like I do - do you feel me so deeply inside Now I'm waiting for the lonely days to come and take you away again will I ever feel the same doesn't anybody care anymore? (Chorus) No one told me when I was alone I'd meet someone who I loved and turned around but it's happened before and I'm facing the floor hoping that this gets off the ground (Chorus)

People Turn To Look My Way If I backed out I know that you'd show me the way to go If I felt strange with all the cool, smart people on the high school stage. Would you tell me the kids won't be this way forever? If you tell me there'll be a change in the weather I won't hide When people turn to look my way x3 Your kind of friends don't laugh at me when you're around When you're home i pretend I know my own ground. Please won't you shove them around because they've roughed me up? When I told them that we were friends they told me "shut up" I won't hide When people turn to look my way x3 When people turn to look my way x3 I won't hide If I backed out I know that you'd show me the way to go If I felt strange with all the cool, smart people on the high school stage. Would you tell me the kids won't be this way forever? If you tell me there'll be a change in the weather I won't hide When people turn to look my way x3

Wish It Would Rain I wish it would rain and wash away the tears I feel coming down keep me in place make me feel I can hide all alone and I know she feels the same and I've really grown it's fate you choose and truth you ignore I wish it would rain satisfy my deep sorrow I can't be this down on this sunny day with all the birds in the trees and oh why is it her who leaves me this way? and I've really grown it's fate you choose and truth you ignore I wish I could blame her for the trust she's stolen from me brand new scenery brand new place look at my face it hasn't changed but it's me I know it's me nothing is easy anymore I ain't got a home it's fate you choose and truth you ignore
12.
My Only Friend (Is God And My Guitar) I always see my old friends passing by how can I be so alone? They never talk to me they think I never try They know that I'm unknown (Chorus) My only friend is God and my guitar I don't need no one to contradict There's no way on earth I'll ever go crazy Because this is the best that I can get this is the best that I can get What's gonna happen when I'm depressed God makes it last less than a week love songs inspired me like all the rest now my music's about what I want to be (Chorus) (Bridge) People think that I'm a fool They all judge me by the rules they all judge me by my past but this had better not last 'cause I don't need no one judging me If they're going to try it they're crazy - but they're not and I'll be what I'll be.
13.
Over And Over Again This was all the pain I could bear Life is not lonely anymore I was not one with myself I tried too hard to make sense of rejections to my body nights that came and went over and over again what then is spiritual growth? if you can't share it alone. Now that you wait for me Life is not troubled anymore I want to hold you with all my strength The beauty never leaves You stand on my wishes too and I trust you with my needs over and over again and I'll take the pain for granted 'cause you can't share it alone. you can't share it alone. you can't share it alone.

Growin' 03:18
Growin’ I know how it feels to be growing I'm sending this message to you I've come all this way to be lonely and I've grown a city in my mind The message is familiar But now I'm so empty from fears I'll never know if I've been chasing dead ends all these years (Chorus) And comfort will find me a pillow of fears for selling my soul to be jaded and old is a sin if I can't feel new I know how it feels to be shrinking away from the curses and fists now I'm in too deep I'm as old as a creep there's no child in my mind but I can't do away with reflection and the sandman still visits my dreams but dreams teach me only of mornings I don't wish to meet (Chorus) (Chorus)
15.
Into The Unknown There's someone that I'll love with a heart that grows we'll grow old together into the unknown We'll make many memories we'll share many woes as we walk together into the unknown into the unknown (Chorus) Someday I will find my own true love she will be as bright as the sun with love There's someone that I'll love maybe many years from now When I hear her calling I'll follow the sound Maybe she will find me Maybe I already know with whom it is I'll travel into the unknown into the unknown (Chorus)

about

A collection of recordings spanning from 1994 to 1999. All of these songs to varying degrees were results of me working at writing "hits" for my publisher at the time, which they rejected and refused to produce, because unfortunately they believed they would not fit in with the sound of the pop hits from the mid nineties. Most of these tracks were home demos recorded on various 4 and 8 track recorders using cheap mics and instruments, so what you hear is the basic non-produced versions of the songs. I hope you enjoy hearing these recordings, featuring my long lost falsetto voice I have never recaptured after smoking for a few years in the early 2000's. Enjoy!
