about

This is an EP with a feel good and edgy vibe. This set of songs as a whole represent a unique blend of alternative rock that combine great energy mixed with chill, memorable melodies that cover elements of both the acoustic and electric spectrum. It is a stepping stone to connect with as many people as I can through my music and the first of many projects to come. These songs are a product of an entire spectrum of experiences that showed me the importance of a balanced lifestyle.

I hope you enjoy the music. I am thrilled you decided to listen.

Track Name: The Plan
THE PLAN

For far too long I’ve dwelled on my mistakes
But this new sunrise has brightened up my days
Can never understand the mystery
Of how all this is part of the plan for me
But I believe, I believe

Still for each new day you may say
What were you doing
All those times you realized you hardly knew the man you were
If you pray each new day, God grant me pardon
Realize He truly knows the soul you are

After all, we’re only human

Swim upstream, escape the cold and you will see
Though winter has its malice, it also has its majesty
And even in the worst that it may be
Remember winter’s harshest turns again to summer’s green
And I believe, I believe

Still for each new day you may say
What were you doing
All those times you realized you hardly knew the man you were
If you pray each new day, God grant me pardon
Realize He truly knows the soul you are

And after all, I know I’m still me

For every time that I am blind to all the reasons why
I need to put my fears and pride aside
And I know that I need these words as much as any other man
But I believe for me, its all part, part of the plan
It’s all part of the plan

If you pray each new day, God grant me pardon
Realize He truly knows the soul you are
Track Name: Do You Know When
Do You Know When

A cell so cold and solitary
The innocent young man feels every bit of his humanity
Could this be the end? And what would that mean?
For all the promises that he would not be able to keep

And do you know when to run and do you know when to fight?
Do you know when everything’s alright?
When you’ve got no where to stay when you’ve got no where to go
When you feel so far from home

Hold on to me
Go on and hold on to me

Just as life’s about to leave him
A visitor appears inside his walls
The cold subsides, death’s grip dissolves
And he is told that he has lives to save
And he is told he will be set free from this place

And do you know when to run and do you know when to fight?
Do you know when everything’s alright?
When you’ve got no where to stay when you’ve got no where to go
When you feel so far from home

Hold on to me
Go on and hold on to me

And do you know when to run and do you know when to fight?
Do you know when everything’s alright?
When you’ve got no where to stay when you’ve got no where to go
When you feel so far from home
Just hold on, hold on, hold on
Track Name: Your Sunrise Eyes
Your Sunrise Eyes

Every day I look into the eyes
Of my blue skies and sunrise
When you’re not there I swear the air grows stale
Full of life, your smile prevails

I used to only imagine, while I was in this life
That I would find someone my heart longs for every day and night
Once only in my dreams, now more real than fantasy
I used to only imagine I would ever find you

Can you believe with me, that as we walk along our path
We are searching and dreaming for
A soul to be our other half

And on that very night, when I first looked in your eyes
I had never been so captivated
You are always on my mind
And I used to only imagine I would ever find you

Can you believe with me, that as we walk along our path
We are searching and dreaming for
A soul to be our other half

Did you know my heart pours out when I see your smile?
When you are close to me, everything seems right
And after all this time, none of that has changed
You still make my heart come alive
More than any other person could

Can you believe with me, that as we walk along our path
We are searching and dreaming for
A soul to be our other half
Could you be my other half?
Could this be the one that lasts?

And as I close to rest my weary eyes
I hope to see you in my dreams
I know I will cause you’ve been there all along
Track Name: Captured All Of Me
Captured All of Me

Thousands have found a person that sets them apart
What I’ve found is that someone has captured my heart
Do you know it? The feeling I’m talking about
Can you feel it? Cause I feel it every day

Because you’ve captured all of me
You’ve captured all of me
When I fell for you
I fell like the autumn leaves

And I had no idea that something so special would come from our hearts
And get me through the roughest of times
I can’t imagine what it would have been like without you
I’ve never had someone like you

Because you’ve captured all of me
You’ve captured all of me
You make me feel so wonderful
You are my ocean breeze
Track Name: For A Moment
For A Moment

There may be a time,
When our two paths may not become one
But for now, for now
We are walking towards that warm setting sun

And for a moment, the sun is felt upon your face
And you feel all your cares dissolve away
And it’s the beauty of these moments, together as they come
When it’s amazing to know that you are loved

For many reasons, that may not be understood
Our hearts, our hearts
Guide us to where they should

And for a moment, the rain is felt upon your face
And you feel all your cares just wash away
And it’s the beauty of these moments, together as they come
When it’s amazing to know that you are loved

And for a moment, the rain is felt upon your face
And you feel all your cares just wash away
And for a moment, the sun is felt upon your face
And you feel all your cares dissolve away
And it’s the beauty of these moments, together as they come
When it’s amazing to know that you are loved
Loved
Track Name: By This Firelight
A candle flickers wild
And by this firelight I’ll decide
To close my eyes awhile
The flame will last through the night
My child

And the only thing I find
As I rest to let myself unwind
Is that today has been the kind
That leaves your thoughts to run inside
Your mind

If there’s a time and place for everything
This must be it
Because it’s all happening

A page unfolds and eyes made wide
To the truths we often face in life
At least we’ll have our tales to tell
As we cast our wishes into
The well
Track Name: I Need You Here
I think, You might know, I need You here
Because lately, things have decided to reignite my fears
You'll never leave me here, to sift through all of the rest of my years
My life's unresolved dreams and fears will not haunt me in here

And I can't understand why
Sometimes it's so hard, but why should it be if you follow your heart?

I think, if I really have to question myself
Then who am I to say, I truly know who I am
Because deep down inside you know you
Be what you find inside
It will show you a way you might never have seen before
Follow your heart and your soul

And there is no disguise in my eyes
Only the truth which you can easily find
Decisions we make, make only half the man
If you don't feel it in your heart then where, where do you stand?
For what, for what do you stand?

I think, You might know, I need You here
Track Name: Sunlight Shining
Sunlight Shining

Walking through surreal snowflakes
Still the sun shines on my face
In fact it’s not the sun at all
It’s you, you see, you’ve got it all
The warmth the light you’re eyes ignite will help me to survive the night

You’ve got it all
A warm light and freedom from the cold
You’ve got it all

Cause this is what you are to me
This is what you mean to me
You are the, sunlight shining in my dreams

Walking through persistent raindrops
Still my heart’s alive with the thought
That it is no coincidence
When you arrive, summer begins
The warmth the light you’re eyes ignite will help me to survive the night

You’ve got it all
A warm light and freedom from the cold
You’ve got it all

Cause this is what you are to me
This is what you mean to me
You are the, sunlight shining in my dreams

Sunrise is calling, I feel the air
Still wrapped up in your atmosphere
My eyes are now alive with light
How did I survive the night
Survive the night

You’ve got it all
A warm light and freedom from the cold
You’ve got it all

Cause this is what you are to me
This is what you mean to me
You are the, sunlight shining in my dreams
Track Name: The Optimist Awakes
The Optimist Awakes

My eyes lay too, heavy to rouse
Listening to that, beautiful morning sound
As I lay feeling, how warm the sunshine could be
As I lay feeling, how warm the sunshine could be

As open eyes give way, to the brightness of a brand new day
So peacefully I lay, listening to all creation play

As my thoughts lead me astray
My weary soul wonders what is really
The difference between
A good and a bad day

It’s such a curiosity when you take the time to stop and see
The difference between a good and a bad day
Between a triumph and a mistake
