about

A sample from my forthcoming album, "Bright."

lyrics

Blue Light shining upon my ankles as I sit here on the floor.
Bus is shaking, and people are talking who've got nothing to say anymore; And as I stepped upon this vehicle it was standing room only. Kind of like life when you're standing in a crowd and all you want to be is alone, all you want to be is alone.

He was hiking along to Tucson, Arizona, that's what I overheard.
Got talking to a man in a corner deli, who said he'd always been poor. And he confessed he wanted to walk away, pretend he had not met him. Saw him as a chore he didn't want to carry, and he left that poor man alone. Yeah, he left that poor man alone.

Refrain:
Standing on the top of the mountain, sitting on the top of the hill. Finding a space to contemplate craziness, and all the world's ills;
And suddenly, inexplicably, I find I am no longer alone.

She was tired of crying every day, since her daughter had been lost in the storm. She picked up the gun to do the deed, when a knock came at the door. Her friend just shook her head, turned pale, "my love this is no answer. If you keep on living I promise you, I won't let you be alone. You won't carry this pain alone." Refrain

Blue light shining upon my ankles as I sit here on the bus. People are talking about their lives, we've all got our own kind of fuss. And as I stepped upon this vehicle, it was standing room only. Kind of life when you're standing in the crowd, and all you want to be is alone; all you want to be is alone; all you want to be is alone.
