The Plan 04:54
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

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

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

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

For A Moment 04:36
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

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

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

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

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

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.
