about

This album was recorded in a basement studio in St. Joseph, MO from October-December 2016. This EP is consisted of 2 re-recorded songs from my very first solo album and 2 newer songs. The artwork concept is due to my love of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Enjoy the songs my friends.

Track Name: Don't Believe The Hype
Hey!
Yeah you'll be ok
Stop living in the night you'll be quite alright
You'll be a-ok
I said hey!
Yeah you'll be ok
Don't worry when they talk
They only like to talk 'cause they hate themselves

Here you are, you're lonely once again
Don't worry one day this will end
And you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype
Sex, drugs, and all sorts of pills
I know just how they make you feel
But you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype

Hey!
Yeah you'll be ok
Don't worry how you dress you're not born to impress
You'll be a-ok
I said hey!
Yeah you'll be ok
You're doing what you can and what you can is all you're doing
You'll be a-ok

Step one: you gotta find your faith
Achieve your goals just don't stand in place
Step two: is always up to you
Stay true do what you wanna do
Step three: you gotta learn to laugh
Forgive and forget the past
Step four: you gotta make a change
If you want your life to rearrange

Hey girl, I see you're happy now
You got a smile wider than a cloud
And you got what you need tonight
So don't, don't, don't believe the hype
Track Name: Weezer For Now
You're falling backwards down a wishing well
Your life's going straight to hell
And everyone can tell
Everyone but yourself
Until the day I die
Promise I won't leave your side
Honestly and faithfully
I don't like it when we fight

I know just what you're thinking
And this life will always keep on moving
This record keeps on spinning
Playing this soundtrack for the rest of our lives

A new day, a new time
More words, a different line
Gotta get this off my chest
Before it puts me to rest
Hold up, wait a sec
Don't speak just yet
Being wrong feels right sometimes
But sometimes ain't always right

We're playing this soundtrack for the rest of our lives

I know just what you're thinking
And this life will always keep on moving
This record keeps on spinning
Playing this soundtrack for the rest of our lives
Track Name: Ballad Of A True Romantic
It took 3 whole months, to realize that I had something great
And like any true romantic would, I fucked it up and I gave it away
And now I live with that, every minute of every day
I sit here alone at night, wondering if you're missing our ways
But I can't hate, on how everything turned out wrong
Wrong for me at least I'd say, but we live to see these better days
And I'll get by, yeah I'll be good and fine
With these strings and these songs I sing, I trust nothing but these melodies

This is the ballad of a true romantic
A love so sweet, but a story so tragic
It fell apart when we both got frantic
I blame her words, but also my tactics
This is the ballad of a true romantic
A love so sweet, but a story so tragic
It fell apart when we both got frantic
It fell apart yeah, we fell apart

It's been 6 full months, since I've seen her or those eyes
And damn do I miss that sight, but then again they made me cry
Now I'll stand strong, you won't knock me down again
And though we may get along, this trust has burned from both our ends

This is the ballad of a true romantic
A love so sweet, but a story so tragic
It fell apart when we both got frantic
I blame her words, but also my tactics
This is the ballad of a true romantic
A love so sweet, but a story so tragic
It fell apart when we both got frantic
It fell apart yeah, we fell apart

I stood by you through those days
The early mornings and the late night stays
And now I'm stuck with this memory
The kind that won't ever go away

You had my heart and you had my soul (this is my ballad, you've heard it once)
You let it go when the wind got cold (now hear it twice while I scream my lungs)
I don't think that I'll ever know (this is my ballad, you've heard it once)
Why you left me here alone (now hear it twice while I scream my lungs)
Track Name: Second Place
Friday night at a show
Don't wanna take you home
"Oh no" that's what I said
Got these feelings in my head

I pick you up at five thirty
We're smoking by five thirty one
We have so much fun
The night is young and so are we

I don't know what to do
I don't have a fucking clue
I think I'm falling for you
But you won't fall down there with me too

I pick you up from school
Hopefully everything's still cool
I just want to be the guy
You think about all day and night

Well I know I'm not the number one guy
That's always stuck on your mind
But second place, it ain't so bad
Or so they tell me all the time

I don't know what to do
I don't have a fucking clue
I think I'm falling for you
But you won't fall down there with me too
Track Name: Goodbye Today, part 3
You're leaving tomorrow
But I'm gone today
Your heart's full of sorrow
With the words you'll never get to say

I'm out on the road while you're home all alone
I'm at another show while you're packing up to go
You say that you don't care but I know you do
Remember you once shared the same feelings as I do

I just want you here, I need you very near
Won't you hold my hand, hear my heart and understand
All that I do, I do it for you
Won't you open up your eyes and finally realize

When I'm around, you say I'm in the way
But when I'm about to leave, you beg me to stay
I don't comprehend, I'm confused in-between
Mean what you say by saying what you mean to me

I just want you here, I need you very near
Won't you hold my hand, hear my heart and understand
All that I do, I do it for you
Won't you open up your eyes and finally realize

Here we are singing our goodbyes tonight
Everything, everything is not alright
Here we are singing our goodbyes tonight
So long, good luck to your new life
Here we are singing our goodbyes tonight
I can see, I can see through your glass eyes
Here we are singing our goodbyes tonight
I'll be, I'll be, I'll be just fine
Track Name: A Song For You
I met your eyes two years ago from this day
They were so bright even though the sky was gray
But they let me down just like the years before
Now I'm on the road and I'm searching forevermore
I need a sign to let me know that'll I'll be fine
I heard a voice, it cued in right on time
But the words I heard were not what I needed
I lost some battles but I'm not quite defeated

I don't know what it is that I want from you
I don't know what it is that I want from life
I'm trying hard not to be emptiness
I'll give it all if you give me one more try

I met your eyes two eyes ago from this day
They were so wide that they put a smile on my face
But like the past it always seems to come around
That empty feeling when you're dead and on the ground

I don't know what it is that I want from you
I don't know what it is that I want from life
I'm trying hard not to be emptiness
I'll give it all if you give me one more try

These nights are longer than all these days
These days are longer when you're gone and away
These city lights are brighter than both my eyes
My eyes are brighter when I'm standing by your side

I don't know what it is that I want from you
I don't know what it is that I want from life
I'm trying hard not to be emptiness
I'll give it all if you give me one more try
