about

My debut EP "Stripped Down" showcases 5 songs recorded with my beloved Taylor Acoustic Guitar, my Gibson Custom Electric run through a Marshall Head 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!

Track Name: Loved & Betrayed
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 -
Track Name: Don't You Cry
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
Track Name: Without A Trace
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
Track Name: Cold Blood
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
Track Name: Another Day
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
