World’s Full of Tomorrows

I’ve experienced a lot this year and this 2 song EP really highlights the journey that I’ve taken.  It kind of binds it all together in a nice little package.  It’s a year that has been marked by a break up with my wife and a whirlwind bro-mance.  I’ve really been proud of the way I’ve dealt with all the upheaval in my life. I’ve kept a cool head and I really just employed many of the ’emotional tools’ that I’ve learned over the last few years of rock climbing, skateboarding, skiing and adventuring.  It sounds trite, but I’ve never been more fearful for my life then when I’ve found myself stuck 15-20 feet up a rock and sure that I was going to fall to my death. Moreover, I’ve never panicked quite so outwardly as when I’ve skateboarded down a monstrous hill, at least what felt for me like a major hill  (see Bicknell Hill or Franklin in Santa Monica, California).  See, the thing is, I’ve survived, I’ve pulled through, moreover I’ve accepted these almost daily challenges and I’ve survived them. What I’ve learned in these daily affirmations is that not only do I have to keep my head, but I’ve had to learn to trust my feet, to trust that I have the tools at my disposal.

These few songs, for me, speak to that journey.

Here’s to always trusting your feet!

Paper Stars

the sky is filled with paper stars
words written down like broken shards
ink runs from my veins
cross me out I’m still the same
you run I stand in place
your gone I see your face
your fingerprints upon the wall
my lonely footsteps in the hall
And in the dark
No light no spark
and when it’s over
your loves discovered
and when it’s over
you feel uncovered
My thoughts go round again
like an old record that’s got no spin.
My box of lonely rhymes
my heart drawn out of broken crayons
my hours lost its sand
your grip has left my hand
the sky is filled with paper stars
words written down like broken shards
ink runs from my veins
cross me out I’m still the same
and when it’s over
your loves discovered
and when it’s over
you feel uncovered

 

 

I am the River 

These songs are about peanut butter kisses, Raindrops and other light hearted subjects such as growing up, realizing that your parents aren’t going to live forever and that the River will continue to flow long after you are no longer here.

I am the River

I am the River the river of my youth
I dream in pictures I run without shoes
i am the river my parents hold my hand
I am blind to their suffering I am drifting
I drift to my home the place my brother was born
we always had eachother I was never alone
I am the river I come rushing by
my parents are older now I don’t want them to die

There is no future only now
all things change
still i sit here wishing that we could be the same
all things change
I remember chasing you life was such a game

i am the river that never goes astray
I beat my fists on my guitar like water drips on clay
I am the river the river still remains
I put my feet in its soft sands i wash my pain away
I am the river the river is a hear
I close my eyes to remember how it was
this is the home where my sister was born
she was the baby we were a home
i have my daddy’s hands

There is no future only now
all things change
still i sit here wishing that we could be the same
all things change
I remember chasing you life was such a game
