about

These carefully crafted songs were recorded in a single studio session in order to share an honest and raw performance with the listener. The arrangements are simple and cut back in order to penetrate the heart without distraction.

Track Name: Maybe Not
It didn’t take long for memories of you to be ignored
Trying to escape the thought of you wasn’t hard at first
Working hard and living well acted like a drug
But suddenly, unexpectedly it returns like a flood

Maybe it’s love, maybe it’s not
Maybe I don’t have what it takes for moving on
Maybe it’s a simpler kind of thing
Maybe it’s time and that’s the only thing I need

Glacier ice moving slow carves the mountain top
Rested on the upper slopes, it’s a long way to drop
Chasing you, so out of reach, what have I become?
So I close my eyes and take a breath; it’s a long way back home

Maybe it’s love, maybe it’s not
Maybe I don’t have what it takes for moving on
Maybe it’s a simpler kind of thing
Maybe it’s time and that’s the only thing I need

Maybe it’s love
Maybe it’s love
Maybe it’s love and maybe it’s not

Maybe it’s something I did wrong
Maybe it’s shit and shit ain’t fun for anyone
Maybe we’re broken far beyond what we can fix
Maybe you’re done and moving on just wasn’t hard

Maybe it’s love
Maybe it’s love
Maybe it’s love
Maybe it’s love and maybe not
Maybe it’s something else that won’t let go
Maybe there’s a love for higher things that I forgot
Maybe you’re finally free and that’s exactly what you should be

Maybe it’s love, maybe it’s not
Maybe I don’t have what it takes for moving on
Maybe it’s a simpler kind of thing
Maybe it’s time and that’s the only thing I need
Maybe it’s time and that’s the only thing I need

Maybe it’s love
Maybe it’s love, love
Maybe it’s love and maybe not
Track Name: I'll Pretend
Sitting in the back, this country side is moving thoughts inside me
My childhood is years and years behind me and I’ve kept it miles away
Coasting never made sense, save to keep this heart from having regrets
Now the irony is clear: how I wish that you were near

So we’ll go and I’ll pretend, I’ll pretend
Time rolls on, I will pretend that I regret

These boarders they confuse me, as we turn the bend to Chattanooga Tennessee
I’m still thinking of you and how I wish that you were here

So we’ll go and I’ll pretend, yes I’ll pretend
Time rolls on, I will pretend that I regret
So we’ll go; I’ll pretend, I’ll pretend I regret
I will pretend that I regret
I’ll pretend, yes I’ll pretend that I regret
Track Name: Wide Open World
Wide open world
Didn’t mean to overwhelm you with thoughts of what could be
But my dear darling girl, take your time to choose and choose what you need
In a world that will knock you down
Rise up on your feet, look it in the eyes and say that “I am only me
“Now I don’t mean to offend but I won’t apologize for this bleeding heart of mine.
“Jesus is the blood running through my veins.”

Won’t you open up?
Tell me less of what you know, more of what you love
Cause I won’t give up
There’s a question in your heart, a thought inside your mind that
He won’t be enough
Well the truth is that he is, but enough don’t understand that though he’s all you need
You’ll never have enough of him in the life you lead

Wide open world
Wide open world

There’s one thing to do
Don’t let go of the vine that holds you
