New Single, “Waterloo”

This song was inspired by several trips to Waterloo, IA. It’s really about any small town USA, where it’s great to place to grow up. Then maybe you stay – or go.

It’s a great life
Alive and kickin’
Motor runnin’
Living every day by the hour, by the minute
We were living like kings
In Waterloo

Cruisin down the causeway
Windows down and Ozzy up
We knew we were headed somewhere
Far from here

Once in a while I get to thinkin’
That times were tough
And we did the best we could
Then all this time later
I see that it was exactly as it should

Oooo Waterloo

New Single – “Let Me In”

Let Me In

I wrote this song about 10 years ago. I tend to write songs and then there’s something about it that isn’t fitting, so I put it on the shelf. I was about to re-shelve this one until I found a great acoustic drum beat that fit the song perfectly.

~Available everywhere on 7/2/21~

I’m on the outside looking in
So how would it feel
To let me in
Forget the things that your mother told you
About the friends you made and the enemies around you
They all surround you
Like people at a parade

Will you be there for me
Will you wait for me

Everyone pitches in
To solve your only problem
So how do you fit in
To the unfitting ways of the world?
They just don’t fit

If I could help you through
All the things that ail you
Would you let me in, let me in?

Original Song: In The Middle

It’s mid-November
Dark and damp
The flock overhead
Blanket the sky

So open your mind
To the possibility
That this is just
The beginning

From time to time
Everyone wants
A crystal ball
Because we need to know

You’re in the middle
Of life
Yeah, you’re in the middle
Of love

It’s late December
Just a little lonely and cold
And you haven’t finished
Writing the chapter
But it’s just not really up to you
So wait a little longer for the story
To end
