Painting All My Wishes

She’s got me painting all my wishes
The contrast of her colors burn
Sleepless nights over desert highways
She smiles my way with no concerns

Cool winds blow caught by ocean shorelines
She throws whispers into my ear
Life reflects pouring back your emotions
So drink its potions and love with appear

She’s got me painting all my wishes
Her love fills the colors in every picture
Spend my days lost in fantastic visions
Cause she’s got me painting all my wishes

Miles and miles driving to feed passion
It’s Like heaven runs through my vains
Her glances shoot that familiar splendor
Who says forever can’t be this way

Spend my time smiling into blank canvas
Her love brushes away my fears
Realize I create every emotion
Those were the potions that made love appear


Always Gets Better

Mother never took you to your softball games
That’s okay cause sports was never your thing
And Daddy he was never anywhere to be
But that’s alright he’d only kick you around

Well why can’t we just get with it?
Stop killin ourselves and get with the living
And why can’t we just stop trying
So hard to ground dreams when we’d rather be flying

So drop what your not
and just remember that it only gets better
Don’t so your so hot
And running in rain will only get you wetter

All the kids at school always picked on you
Had your pants pulled down a time or two
All the pretty girls you liked laughed at your love
Well now they’re all pregnant buying livingroom rugs

Thank god life’s not as we planned it
Keep sitting on change ’til we really can’t it
And thank god we got each other
Cause we’d all go crazy if we lived with your mother

Growing up these days just isn’t easy
Coming from the worst and raised by the TV
Gotta hold your own and drop all you’re not
Never shine bright if you’re flashing what they got


Good Luck Love

We found love in the strangest places
We found light in the darkest of spaces

This is farewell for now
Our time has become someday somehow

Good luck my love wherever you may go
I pray you find what you’re looking for
when you’re on top of the world with or without me
I’ll still love you my love, if only in my dreams

We found warmth on the coldest mornings
We found peace when the world was burning

This is goodbye for now
Our time has become someday somehow


Let it Flow

I remember when I
Realized life was a game
I followed every rule
But lost it all the same

cause the records I’d play
Were the same tunes everyday
and the words they sang
chased my bliss away

like am I smart enough
am I cool enough
am I tall enough
will I ever find love
is my job too small
dreams too big
Friends too few
Will they ever know me
I’m breaking down
from always getting up
but it’s killing me
think I’ve had enough
then it dawned to me
slapped me damn straight
gotta let it all go free my head from the ego

Lose your mind
reach for the sunshine
Free your soul
just let it flow
Lose your mind
reach for the sunshine
free your soul
just let it flow
let it flow

I remember so well
how up high kept me down
I was giving just to get
But all I got were doubts

cause the webs that I’d weave
Were crawling with deceit
and the demons I’d keep
spun insecurities

look for love in all right places
find your bliss amidst the hatred
breathe in slow
and let it flow
let it flow
Close your eyes embrace the sensations
ignore the whole world feel the good vibrations
breathe in slow
let it flow
let it flow


Don’t Get Me Down

Woke up today
Oh the troubles I found
Time flew away
hey it don’t get me down

Heard on the news
sickness going around
Killers on the loose too
it don’t get me down

Even though the world is cold
it don’t get me down
Even though my heart is broke
it don’t get me down
Even though she’s walking away
Even though my wallets empty
Even though my yeses became no’s
it don’t get me down

Working all day
Squeeze my spirit on out
For minimum wage
but hey it don’t get me down

Made up my mind
Laughing before I frown
Dear bills that I find,
you don’t get me down

Even though the world is cold
it don’t get me down
Even though my heart is broke
it don’t get me down
Even though she’s walking away
Even though my wallets empty
Even though my yeses became no’s
it don’t get me down

Woke up today
Oh the troubles I found
Time flew away
It don’t get me down

Even though I lack the glamour
and even though it’s terrible grammar
It don’t get me down


My Leave

Never fallen so hard
Had no clue life could grow so dark
Hearts are striking their chords
Guess all is fair in love and war

We only reap what we sow
Is this what I get for giving you my soul

Why am I feeling this way
What would I have to believe
is true to feel like I do
Now that you’ve taken your leave
Why am I falling apart
What is it that I need
to put myself back together I’ll be taking my leave

Reality takes it’s toll
on those who let their illusions rule
Relief comes with letting go
But you can’t change what you do not own

You’ll only get what you make
Is this what I receive for all I gave

Why can’t you love me as much as I loved you love
Why can’t I hate you as much as you hate me love
