Details:
About ten years ago I found myself in the hospital with Leukemia and then Pneumonia. I wasn’t sure if I would survive. When I did recover thanks to many prayers, God’s healing and the intervention of my oncologist and all of the hospital staff, I had an overwhelming desire to record the songs I''ve written throughout my lifetime. It took awhile for things to fall into place but finally, here it is!
The Love Songs:
Mr. Sun
This was my first song which was written at age 16. We all go through it- an intense crush on someone who may be very nice but doesn’t return the same infatuation. In retrospect, it may have been my inability to communicate or just the fact that she went to another school that prevented a potential bond… or maybe she was just way out of my league. In any case, while I was going through this, it seemed like the world was going to end.
Never Love
Two people can be drawn to each other even though, for whatever circumstance, the relationship can probably never perpetuate. Knowing that it is improbable or even impossible can make the attraction even stronger.
Stay With Me
This one was written about a more serious relationship that was more like a physical addiction. If you’ve experienced an intense craving to be with someone even though the person is not good to you or has even been abusive, then you can identify with this one.
Fear of Love
This speaks of coming out of a lonely, dry time in my life with a sudden exhilaration of meeting someone who suddenly propelled me into the ecstasy of a dream come true. My dad used to tell me that when rain arrives abruptly, it doesn’t usually last too long.
The introspective Songs:
Spotlight
The paradox between hearing the applause of the audience, stomping feet and cheers for an encore, and signing autographs of adoring fans juxtaposed with my actual life which was a struggle just to survive. There I was… singing, playing and strutting under colored lights and powerful sound, waking up the next morning wondering if I had enough to pay my rent. Starving artists – this is your song.
Make It
In a dream early one morning I was surrounded by waitresses who were singing “Can’t there be an easier way to get through this life. Can’t there be an easier way to make it.” I immediately got up and started working on the verses. I sincerely believe that many can identify with this song especially in light of the world’s apparently declining economies causing many people to wonder how they are going to make it from day to day not only in a financial sense but in an emotional sense as well. “Rainbows and dreams, visions of false illusions slowly just take us to the ground.”
Old Gin Road
We can’t actually go back and re-experience our journey through life. But thoughts sometimes can take us back to walk on a road once travelled, maybe prompted by a song on the radio, a certain smell or seeing the leaves of a tree come alive with a breeze silhouetted under a full moon. (The song has nothing to do with alcohol.)
White Turban Boys
FRUSTRATION: when nothing seems to be going right: eagerly grasping at something and then having it taken away, being misunderstood, lost opportunities, disappointment etc. There is absolutely no intention of offending anyone who may wear a turban. It is simply to communicate getting on an airplane and mistakenly winding up in a foreign country. A friend once told me that it sounds like a Billy Joel song that he might write after being very tired and burned out after a long tour. Thanks a lot!
Writing it Out
“Time keeps us a prisoner, it blinds the truth we seek… love follows no logic, its course is hard to chart”…profound insights that border on the spiritual, this song touches on integrity which is a trait in which we all could improve.
Destiny
Sometimes in life there are so many choices that we don’t know which way to turn, that depending on the choice, can lead to great things or a bad situation like being stranded far away from home. This song sums up my life. While growing up, I didn’t always make the right choices. But now, having faith in God, I know that I am finally on the right path and my destiny is clear and good. Thank you, God.

Spotlight
Just a friend just a lonely friend
But he’s got so much to give its hard to
See him reach the end
And it’s a long trip down that road to fame
It’s a life that makes you search your soul
Is it really him

Standing in the spotlight hiding in the shadows
He’s standing in the hot light alive another day
Fighting on the front lines he’s waiting on the side lines
Standing in the claims line survive another day

Yes there are times he doesn’t know himself
Does it matter both a peasant and a star
Life goes on and complications rise
But its just a grand illusion meant to open up your eyes

Standing in the spotlight its just another dark night
Standing in the spotlight alive another day
Standing in the spotlight

Old Gin Road
Walking along the old gin road, nobody seems to care
Many nights we spent out on that road
Never really thinking that it would end

Should this song survive throughout the years
And I lose your love
I’ll reminisce when I hear the melody
Then we’ll be walking there again
Then we’ll be walkin’ there again

Time to remember the seasons change
On that old gin road
Words in a whisper were spoken there
On that old gin road

You see this story is yours as well as mine
We’re all on that old gin road
Walking hand in hand we hurry through the years
Never really thinking that it would end
Never really thinking that it would end

Should this song survive throughout the years
And I lose your love
I’ll reminisce when I hear the melody
Then we’ll be walking there again
Then we’ll be walking there again
Then we’ll be walking there, then we’ll be walking there
Then we’ll be walking there again
Then we’ll be walking on…

Old gin road, meet me on that
Old gin road, somewhere out there
Old gin road, time stands still there
Old gin road, moonlight shines on
Old gin road, meet me on that
Old gin road, somewhere out there
The full moon lights the way

White Turban Boys
I could not sleep some song’s in my head
But the bridges keep burning and the chorus has fled
And I don’t know how to sing it
Or how to write down the words
The melodies that surround me
Don’t quite fit in with the chords

I’m never home when the telephone rings
I can’t complete the call
You talk to me but the meaning’s not clear
I can’t find nothing at all

And I love to be with my friends
And I want to be found on the air
But the curtain closed on me for my curtain call
And my giant leap turned out to be a backward fall

But I’m glad I’m alive and I’ve found peace inside
And I don’t know how to say it but all my friends tell me

You’re never home when the telephone rings
You don’t complete the call
You talk to me but the meaning’s not clear
You can’t find nothing at all

Well I’m on my way but where am I going
I’d love to stay but the words aren’t flowing

Well I’m on the wrong flight and its headed one way
But all the white turban boys said have a nice day
Oh-oh, wo-oh, wo-oh, wo-oh

Make It
Misfortunes I’ve had the good and the bad
All of my life’s contentions
Lead me to believe it isn’t quite so easy
To make it through this lonely world

Untrue to ourselves we try to mask our feelings
To smile when we really mean to cry
The weak and the strong the sad and the great pretenders
All of us really want to know

Can’t there be an easier way to get through this life
There must be an easier way to make it
Can’t there be an easier way to get through this life
There must be an easier way to make it

Rainbows and dreams visions of false illusions
Slowly just take us take us to the ground
And then we depend on our inborn resilience
Trying to get back up again

And if we succeed there’ll be another burden
Waiting to try our weary souls
How much can we take before we break down in anger
And simply just stop and wonder why

Fear of Love
Babe, We’ve been discreet for far too long
One would stand up and say its wrong
You can’t just turn and walk away
Now, slowly my thoughts begin to turn
Back to the lessons I have learned
From giving my heart away too fast

I, I was the shy one and you, you were the sly one
But now, I found out why I built that wall

That’s when a fear of love
Was building up inside me and it left me cold
‘Till you showed me what its like to feel sincere love
Blinded by the light it wasn’t merely love
That came and turned the darkness away

True I was about to give up hope
It was impossible to cope
Living inside this empty shell
Shocked by your incredible surprise
It hit me right between the eyes
All those dead feelings were revived

I, I was the shy one and you, you were the sly one
But now, we played it down for far too long

Just a few short hours and I start to feel this way
Now as time goes on I sit and count each passing day
That I spent with you trying to find tomorrow
And some gold among the rocks
We sifted sand looking for that glitter
But the night came on too soon

That’s when a fear of love
Was building up inside me and it left me cold
‘Till you showed me what its like to feel sincere love
Blinded by the light it wasn’t merely love
That came and turned the darkness to a real love
Building up inside me one that won’t grow cold
And never take advantage of an easy love
The pleasure turns to pain and when the lovin’s done
The feelings slowly fizzle away

Stay With Me
It was murder it was torture
It was obvious you left me flat
I had bad times I hit good times
But you just don’t seem to care where I’m at
Like a fast ride on a water slide
You always gave me thrill after thrill
Then I landed reprimanded
Now I want to get back up the hill
It may be over but I just want to see you again

We don’t have to talk about old times
We don’t have to talk about new times
We don’t have to talk about anything at all

Just stay with me for a little while stay with me
Lets hang out
Just stay with me for a little while chill with me

I was careful not to hurt you
But I kept on getting hurt myself
Then you made it complicated
By telling me you want to be friends
I can’t hide it I’m excited
At the thought of seeing you again
But I sense some apprehension
From all the things that we went through back then
We’ll get together yeah we’ll just have to do it again

Stay with me
Stay with me
Chill with me
Stay with me

Writing it Out
Signs coming from your eyes will indicate to me your true integrity
They’re telling the truth they’re making it plain to see
Words can’t always translate your feelings deep inside
The boundaries are too wide
They get in the way and cause disarray sometimes

Writing it out, writing it out they’re writing it out for me
Writing it out, writing it out they’re writing it out for me

Love follows no logic its course is hard to chart
But it has to make a start
So give it away its burning inside of your heart
Time keeps us a prisoner it blinds the truth we seek
It makes the mortal weak
Its hard to define its obscure and oblique

Mr. Sun
Looking in your eyes I found a stairway to your mind
Walking up those stairs I saw that you were really blind
To the love that I’ve been giving you its nothing that I’ll find
For you don’t really love me you’re just trying to be kind

Hey, hey Mr. Sun where have you gone and what have you done
Hey, hey Mr. Sun where have you gone and what have you done

Sitting in my empty room I’m locked inside a dream
Of the way I wish that love could be its never what it seems
When the right one comes along you’ll know for its written in her face
But when you look for love in return you won’t even find a trace

Its twelve o’clock and I can’t talk alone and incomplete
Can’t hear nor feel but I can see that I won’t get to sleep
Spend all my time in misery and I can’t even fight it
My mind my soul my heart is gone my lamp is now unlighted

Never Love
Hold onto me while you’re still with me
How rare the time I spend with you
I would wait a lifetime but they say our love should never be
Never love, never love someone like me

Your tender touch will always warm me
You’re everything I’ll ever need
How magical the feeling but they say our love will never be
Never love, never love someone like me

Even if they cut us down for being oh so brave
They say its almost futile to carry on this way
We must find a way to beat all odds we pray

Can’t we find another place can’t we find another time
Can’t we find another way for you and me
Can’t we find another place can’t we find another time
Can’t we find another way for you and me

Can’t we find another place can’t we find another time
Never love never love
Can’t we find another place can’t we find another time
Never love never love

Never love Never love
Never love Never love

Can’t we find another way for you and me

Destiny
I’m broken down miles from my home
Chosen the wrong places to roam
So many choices to make
So desperately hoping to find
Pathways that lead to a time
Where all the road signs are clear

Destiny’s calling, calling me near
I’m on my way back home
Destiny’s calling, calling me near
I’m on my way back

Green signs and good times
Peace love and sunshine to spare
Those days are over for good
Closed mind delusion
Cloaked with confusion and doubt
I’m not going back there again

I’m going home I’m going home
On my way home I’m going home
I’m on my way back home
I’m on my way back home
I’m on my way back home
I’m on my way back
