I lay my eyes on you, in the morning light
and I thank God I'm here
I see the things in you, that block your joy
from shining through

I feel your struggle, I bring your eyes in near
I can't think of any way to keep your thoughts in here
I taste your feelings, I understand your fear
I will catch you when you fall
I'll be there

You talk to me at night,
and tell me things I want so badly to believe
You say, "I'll love you forever
and we will be together, for all eternity."

I love your spirit, your heart is free and clear
I just want to be a part of your exodus from fear
take me with you, wherever you may go
I will be there, in your glow.

Liner Notes

Thank you: My friends and family. Without you I could not keep going. In no particular order: Mom, Don, Rachel, Jim, Elliot, Penny, Sherry, Meredith, Smokey, Melisa, Carol, Jenna, Cat, Mon, Heather, Amy, Stephanie, and Denny, Chuk, Jack, and Mojo (Bodega).  May those I may have forgotten please forgive me.

This is my third self-produced project, and I appreciate the support of everyone who has taken the time to take a second look at something that may not be traditional entertainment.

Recorded at 2312 N. Blvd (My apartment) between September, 2001, and July, 2002. I use Rhode and Shure mics, De Armond electric, Yamaha, and Alvarez acoustic guitars, Ovation bass, Yamaha keyboard, Behringer mixing console, Line6 POD direct boxes for guitar and bass, Cry Baby wah pedal.

Photography by Melisa Dettloff. I wrote, produced, performed, recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered all of these songs, created the cover/package artwork, and additional photography.
