You tell me you don't know me - After everything we shared - You say you never loved me - And you never really cared - Standing by the doorway - As you turn to say good-bye - How can you just walk away - And leave it all behind - I taste the tears - Through all the years - Your lies have come and gone - I walked the mile - and all the while - You played and always won - I gave you all - My heart and soul - Now how can I go on - My love has gone away - So far away - Don't know where I'm going but I'll find my way again - I might be hurting but I'll learn to hide the pain - Now that you're leaving it will never be the same - How can I go living being loved - And then betrayed - Living in the shadows - In a world that I have made - the nights are getting colder - It's getting harder every day - Underneath the moonlight - Could've sworn that it was real - I saw the sparkle in your eyes - Just before it disappeared - All black and white and mesmerized my heart is on the line - A broken pride and shattered life is all you left behind - The darkest side of every night hides the tears I cry - For the games that you played - It's the price I pay - Don't know where I'm going but I'll find my way again - I might be hurting but I'll learn to hide the pain - Now that you're leaving it will never be the same - How can I go living being loved - And then betrayed -

Where is love - when you need it most - a broken heart - so empty and so cold - all alone - I’m out here on my own - and I walk - through life’s twisted roads Come on baby won’t you look me in the eyes - every day without you tears me up inside - don’t need nothing I just need you by my side - for your loving I will never say good-bye I will love you with my body and my soul - I will hold you and I’ll never let you go - I know nothing to you matters anymore - he stole your love and now he’s gone - gone Don’t you cry - oh my little baby - you and I we will make the changes - give it time and a little patience - make up for all the love gone wasted - Don’t you cry Love is said - to come and then to go - promises - don’t mean nothing anymore - take my hand - oh baby don’t let go - I will mend - the promise that he broke Wanna hold you every day and every night - wanna tell you baby - it’ll be all right - wanna wipe away the tears from your eyes - I wanna be there by your side - tonight Don’t you cry - oh my little baby - you and I we will make the changes - give it time and a little patience - make up for all the love gone wasted - Don’t you cry

It seems so long ago – yes I’ve been down this road before It took my heart and scarred my soul – now it’s back to take it all Maybe if I was a little stronger – maybe if I could just see Only if I could find the power – and find the strength inside of me And there’s a hill to climb but it seems so high – and I don’t know if I can make it There’s a wall around this heart of mine – and I don’t know if I can break it Bound in chains there is no escape – all my dreams have slowly faded I lost the key now I can’t break free – from this prison I’ve created Oh lord I pray – you show me the way – to make it back without a trace To follow Walk on by my little brother – and don’t be looking down on me There was a time when I was stronger – there was a time when I was free Maybe if I could find somebody – maybe if I could find some love Only if I could rise above it – and be again under the sun And there’s a hill to climb but it seems so high – and I don’t know if I can make it There’s a wall around this heart of mine – and I don’t know if I can break it Bound in chains there is no escape – all my dreams have slowly faded I lost the key now I can’t break free – from this prison I’ve created Oh lord I pray – you show me the way – to make it back without a trace To follow

Cold Blood 03:47
Johnny used to live in the city – had a lot of friends and family It’s been a year since he’s seen them – maybe it was all just a dream Another day in the jungle – another battle has begun – fighting for medals of honor – fighting a war that can’t be won ‘Till he paid the price one too many times – lost the will to live – and the strength to fight – all the time he fought never figured out – what the war was all about Well he’s done his time in this twisted life – got a loaded gun and took his life – he’s always known – that was the only road – that would finally take him home From cold blood – and medals of honour – for the glory of war Just a soldier – sent in a battle – but don’t know what he’s fighting for Dead bodies lying all around him – they were his friends yesterday – his heart of stone feels no more sorrow – got no more tears – feel no more pain Said goodbye in a letter – don’t anyone cry for me – ‘cause I’ll be gone by tomorrow – and I’ll finally be free ‘Cause I paid the price one too many times – lost the will to live and the strength to fight – all the time I fought never figured out – what the war was all about Well I’ve done my time in this twisted life – got a loaded gun and took my life – had a family – golden memories – and a pocket full of dreams "Till cold blood – and medals of honour – and for the glory of war Just a soldier – sent in a battle – but don’t know what I'm fighting for No I don't know - what we're fighting for

Another Day 05:16
Another day has come and gone - the falling rain - hides the sun - I close my eyes and fade away - I live my life - day by day If the sun don’t shine today - let it rain - another day - I’ll find my way - They tell me time has come to change - let them say - hey - another day - I’ll find a way Call me a dreamer - call me a fool - don’t really matter - I’ll pull through I look in the mirror - I am - what I am - from one to another - I am Another day will come and go - Lord I pray - you guide my soul - I’ll do my time if I’ve done wrong - take my life - in your arms And the sun will shine again - again my friend – another day – we’ll be okay I reach out and touch a star - I’m standing tall - I give it all - I’ll never fall - oh no Call me a dreamer - call me a fool - don’t really matter - I’ll pull through I look in the mirror - I am - what I am - from one to another - I am

about

My debut EP "Stripped Down" showcases 5 songs recorded with an acoustic, an electric and me voicey...nothing else! Hence Stripped Down.

I wanted to keep it as raw as possible and only focus on the substance of the songs as much as possible without the usual bells and whistles of a full production.

Does it work? Hopefully. Let me know!
