about

This album is created from works produced during February Album Writing Month 2017. It's a very personal and serious work, although the songs may be funny and silly. Music is how I interact with my world.

Track Name: I'm not scared.
I’ve thought a lot about bravery
I’ve thought a lot about fear
I’ve thought a lot about my own mortality
Especially after last year

I’ve thought a lot about history
What’s been said and done
Every person has their moment
And I’m taking this one

Lift 1
Don't exactly know what I’m feeling right now
But I’ll tell you what I’m not

Chorus
I’m not scared
Not shaking in my shoes
Got nothing left to lose
It’s my time to choose
Oh I’m not scared
Of the monsters under my bed
Or the demons in my head
I’m alive, I should be dead
I’m not scared

Lift 2
Adrenalin I feel is excitement not anxiety it’s
Time to believe in me

Chorus
I’m not scared
Not shaking in my shoes
Got nothing left to lose
It’s my time to choose
Oh I’m not scared
Of the monsters under my bed
Or the demons in my head
I’m alive, I should be dead
I’m not scared
Track Name: Important Like Me
Verse
My buddies and me we were a conversatin’
The lady wanted in but I kept her waitin
And finally I let her start to talk
Then I interrupted her to tell her to take a walk

Chorus
When you’re important like me
You don’t need to care
When you’re important like me
You don’t need to share
When you’re important like me
You can do what you dare
And no body can stop you
Anytime or Anywhere

Verse
I was sittin in the theater
I saw you over there sittin with her
I called the captain in and he threw you out
You shoulda been sittin with me without a doubt

Chorus

When you’re important like me
You don’t need to care
When you’re important like me
You don’t need to share
When you’re important like me
You can do what you dare
And no body can stop you
Anytime or Anywhere

Verse
The moral to the story that I’m tellin
I get my way or there’s gonna be yelling
Worship me is what will do
I get what I want and I’ll take yours too
Track Name: Cryin' Alone
Verse 1
I’ve seen grief and pain
I’ve seen days I hope I never see again
I’ve wandered around searching for home
Seen nothing but sadness where ever I roam

People come and people go
Why they don’t stay, we’ll never know
But when they do, it’s solid gold
Aint nothing sadder than cryin alone

Bridge
When it’s dark and it’s cold
And i’m feeling so old
And my heart feels black and blue
I can’t make it stop
The tears start to drop
There’s nothing that I can do

Verse
I let the tears fall down like rain
It’s how I keep myself sane
Lord I try not to gripe and moan
Aint nothing sadder than cryin alone

Bridge
When it’s dark and it’s cold
And i’m feeling so old
And my heart feels black and blue
I can’t make it stop
The tears start to drop
There’s nothing that I can do

reprise - V3
I let the tears fall down like rain
It’s how I keep myself sane
Lord I try not to gripe and moan
Aint nothing sadder than cryin alone
Track Name: Consent.
And so you laced up that boustier
Found a local dungeon and you’re going to play
But listen up pollyanna, cuz before you go
I think there’s a couple things that you should know

It aint about the whips and the chains
It aint about the bruises and and pain
It aint about saying dirty things
It’s about a little thing called consent…

It aint about dating, it about love
It aint about money, heavens above
It aint about giving anything up
It’s about a little thing called consent

I got my power, I got my voice
I got my body, and I got my choice
Nobody else has a say in those things
Even if they give you wedding rings

S’got nothing to do with shades of grey
I hated that movie anyway
Just remember what I say
It’s about a little thing called consent…

If anybody argues, they can go get bent
Cuz it’s bout a little thing called consent
Track Name: Honey
Honey
You love like honey
Warm and sweet
Such a treat
Honey

Busy bee
In my tree
Watch me bloom
Gimme room

Honey bee
You and me
Sweet and hot
Gotta lotta

Honey
You love like honey
Warm and sweet
Such a treat
Honey

Sticky sweet
Sweet to eat
Warm and goey
Me an you-ey

Honey
You love like honey
Warm and sweet
Such a treat
Honey
Track Name: Me and My Chapter
Me and my chapter

Looking back has never done that much for me
And Rafiki said to leave your past behind
Still I think if I had better memories
I might have kept some of my mind

But looking forward never happens easily
I just tend to stop and stare
And marvel at everyone’s bravery
And wonder how they got there

This is me and my chapter
This is me and my chapter

Your chapter is your contribution
To the the energy that makes the world go round
Your legacy to leave behind for others
To leave everything better than you found

So write your chapter quietly and clearly
Do not sacrifice yourself to make it heard
Don’t exaggerate for fear of lacking colour
And when you’re done, stand behind every word

This is me and my chapter
This is me and my chapter

I stand before you here
Without my pride without my fear
Leave it layin on the floor
So it won’t trouble me no more
This is me and my chapter
This is me and my chapter
Track Name: Choose, Luv
Men listen to me, it’s time you used your voice
That lady of yours doesn’t need a choice
When you take her out to dinner and you ask where to?
She’ll turn it right back around on you

You choose, Love
You choose, Love

But now I got to tell you the other side
Don’t try to sneek don’t try to hide
When something comes between her and you
She’ll turn it right back around on you

You choose, love…….
Oh You choose, love

If she’s the love of your life then you’ll know what to say…..
If she’s the love of your life why you listenin’ to me anyway……

You choose, love……..
You choose, love……..
You choose, love…
Track Name: That's the way he loves you
He’s not the type to call you
He’s not the type to wait
He’ll never show up early
But you better not be late

That’s the way he loves you
That’s the way he cares
Just when you think he’s with you
You look around and he’s not there

He’ll always leave you wanting
He’ll never be satisfied
He’ll never buy you presents
And he’ll leave you broke and dry.

That’s the way he loves you
Thats the way he cares
Just when you think he’s with you
You look around and he’s not there

He won’t tell you where he’s going
Or when he’s coming home
Girl you better find a hobby
For all that time alone

That’s the way he loves you
Thats the way he cares
Just when you think he’s with you
You look around and he’s not there
Track Name: I just want someone to hold me
one
I didn’t ask you for your number
Because I wouldn’t ever call
The understatement complicated
Don’t describe my life at all
I could tell the first five minutes
We’re looking for different things
Stars in your eyes and still believing
In promises and wedding rings

Chorus
I just want someone to hold me
And let me cry through the night
Don’t try to make it all better
Don’t tell me everything’s alright

2
There’s nothing wrong with what you’re wanting
And I’m sure that’s what you’ll get
Don’t give up before you’ve started
You just haven’t met her yet
Me, well I’ve met plenty
And I’ve watched them walk away
I’ve had and blown my chances
On too many yesterdays

I just want someone to hold me
And let me cry through the night
Don’t try to make it all better
Don’t tell me everything’s alright
Track Name: Slow Down
Loud and smelly
Jostlted mobscene
Herded in-out
Crosswalk waiting
Lunch is absent
stupid meeting
Energy spent
Will is fleeting

Parking ticket
Overdrafting
Schadenfreude
People laughing
Boss is angry
Pressure building
Daily life
So unfulfilling

The day is done
And I’m on the way home
Quiet time for me
Turning off the phone

Gonna slow down
And let the day go
Gonna slow down
Letting everyone know
I’m tired and weary
And I’m done with the day
Gonna take a long bath
And wash it all away

Frugal spending
Carpool driving
Homework bringing
Thriftstore diving
Always giving
Always going
Oh so tired
Never showing

The day is done
And I’m on the way home
Quiet time for me
Turning off the phone

Gonna slow down
And let the day go
Gonna slow down
Letting everyone know
I’m tired and weary
And I’m done with the day
Gonna take a long bath
And wash it all away

Gonna slow down
And let the day go
Gonna slow down
Letting everyone know
I’m tired and weary
And I’m done with the day
Gonna take a long bath
And wash it all away
Track Name: I think it's time
Been a while since I really took a breath
Been way too busy saving lives and cheating death
But even superheros need some downtime now and then
Who’s saving me while I’m saving the world
And I think it’s time
Yeah…..yeah….
I think it’s time

I know I make it look so easy, smile on my face
Shiny boots, sparkly cape, never a hair out of place
But even superheros need some downtime now and then
And you can make it without me just one day
Cuz it’s time
Yeah...yeah…
I think it’s time

Time I took some time for me
Time I saw what I can see
Time I unpacked all those dreams
I put away for a rainy day
I forgot about so long ago

I think it’s time
Yeah…..yeah….
I think it’s time
