about

I always wanted to record an album all by myself, but I never quite had the balls to do it. This one gets pretty close. Apart from my long time collaborator and good friend Clark Fisher on bass, I've played all the other instruments.
After exploring lots of different genres over the past couple years I really wanted to write and record a proper Country album again. I love the sombre laid back feel of all these songs. I am hopeful there isn't too much going on to distract from the stories .
I could listen to Clark's bass all day long. He always hits the nail on the head.
Special thanks also to David Pendragon for mastering the album. I love your work!

Track Name: Fade away
NOTHING CAN STOP THE HANDS OF TIME
SEARCHING FOR PEACE OF MIND
MANY MOUNTAINS LEFT TO CLIMB
TRYING TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE NIGHT

THE PAST IS DEAD AND GONE
TOMORROW MAY NEVER COME
CAN'T FIND YOUR WAY BACK HOME
CAN'T SEE THE POINT TO CARRY ON

SORROW LEAVES YOU COLD
TURNS YOUR HEART TO STONE
SHAKEN AND FORLORN
AND CRUSH YOU 'NEATH THE GRINDSTONE

FADE AWAY
FADE AWAY
IT'LL ALL FADE AWAY
Track Name: Getting out of here
YOU WON'T MISS A THING AFTER YOU'Re GONE
BEEN WASTING TIME FOR TOO LONG
YOU'RE TIRED OF THE SAME OLD SONG
TIME HAS COME FOR MOVING ON

SAY GOODBYE AND HIT THE ROAD
THIS DAMN PLACE DON'T NEED YOU NO MORE
DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE WAITING FOR
WONDER WHAT TOMORROW'S GOT IN STORE

WIPE AWAY YOUR TEARS
START TO SEE THINGS CLEAR
YOU BEEN STUCK IN SECOND GEAR
YOU'RE GETTING OUT OF HERE

WAITING FOR SO LONG
CANT TAKE ANYMORE
THIS PLACE LEAVES YOU COLD
TIME FOR MOVING ON
Track Name: No guarantees
NO GUARANTEES
BETWEEN YOU AND ME
WHAT WILL BE WILL BE
WE GOTTA KEEP ON LIVING FREE

YOU LEARN TO TAKE NOTHING FOR GRANTED
YESTERDAYS GONE TOMORROW'S UNCHARTED
I M GONNA MISS YOU WHEN YOUR DEPARTED
FEELING EMPTY I'LL BE LONESOME AND WEARY HEARTED

I ASK NO QUESTIONS YOU TELL ME NO LIES
WE'RE TRAVEL COMPANIONS FOR A WHILE
A SHOULDER TO LEAN ON IN THE DARK OF NIGHT
UNTIL IT'S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
Track Name: Slow down
SLOW DOWN
LOOK AROUND
YOU WILL SEE
WHAT'S GOING DOWN
SLOW DOWN
LET YOUR FEET TOUCH THE GROUND
STOP RUNNING ROUND
AND SLOW DOWN

YOUR ALWAYS ON THE RUN
ALWAYS SOMETHING TO BE DONE
ANOTHER BATTLE TO BE WON
YOU WONT KEEP THIS UP FOR LONG

GOING HARD IS ALL YOU KNOW
NEVER LEARNED TO LET GO
LITTLE CRACKS STARTING TO SHOW
YOU BETTER TAKE IT SLOW

WHAT'S THE HURRY ANYWAY
THINGS CAN WAIT ANOTHER DAY
TAKE YOUR TIME AND LOOK AROUND
YOU BETTER SLOW IT DOWN
Track Name: Start again
IT'S NOT LIKE YOU DIDN'T TRY
FALLEN FOR ANOTHER LIE
FORGET ABOUT THE TEARS YOU CRIED
IT'S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

TOO MANY LOSE ENDS
LOST YOUR WAY BACK THEN
TIME KEEPS SLIPPING THROUGH YOUR HANDS
TIME TO START OVER AGAIN

NOTHING CAN EASE YOUR PAIN
EVERYTHING MUST BE IN VAIN
KEEP ON GOING JUST THE SAME
TIME TO START OVER AGAIN

THE PIECES DON'T FIT IN
GOTTA TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT
YOU CAN NEVER WIN THIS GAME
TIME TO START AGAIN

ANOTHER CHAPTER ENDS
FORGET WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
NO NEED TO MAKE AMENDS
TIME TO START OVER AGAIN
Track Name: Rock bottom
WHEN YOU HIT ROCK BOTTOM YOUR ON YOUR OWN
THEY SAY YOU REAP WHAT YOU HAVE SOWN
NOBODY KNOWS YOU WHEN YOU DOWN AND OUT
OR LEND A HAND WHEN LIFE KNOCKS YOU ROUND

AINT NOBODY UNDERSTANDS
AINT NOBODY GIVES A DAMN/ LENDS A HAND
AINT NOBODY GONNA BE YOUR FRIEND
WHEN YOU HIT ROCK BOTTOM

THE BIGGER THEY COME THE HARDER THEY FALL
NOBODY GONNA ANSWER YOU CALL
YOUR ANOTHER WINO DOWN on THE STREETS
TIME TO RAISE THE WHITE FLAG AND DECLARE DEFEAT

NOW THAT YOU HIT ROCK BOTTOM
YOR ONLY FRIEND IS THE BOTTLE
NO MATTER HOW MANY YOU DOWN
YOUR SORROW CAN'T BE DROWNED
Track Name: Weighs you down
TRYING TO GET TO HIGHER GROUND
YOUR STILL TRYING NOT TO DROWN
CAN'T NEVER SEEM WORK THINGS OUT
IT WEARS YOU DOWN

TOO MANY QUESTIONS REMAIN
THINGS NEVER WORK OUT AS PLANNED
AIN'T NOBODY UNDERSTAND
YOU GOT NO WORDS TO EXPLAIN

YOUR STRANGER IN THE CROWD
HAUNTED BY REGRETS AND SELF DOUBT
THERE AIN'T NO WAY OUT
IT WEARS YOU DOWN

WEIGHS YOU DOWN
IT WEIGHS YOU DOWN
Track Name: Point of no return
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY
YOU LEFT THE PATH AND WENT ASTRAY
CAN'T FIND YOUR WAY BACK AGAIN
BROKEN PIECES CAN'T BE MEND

NO RETURN NO RETURN
PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN

WONDER WHERE YOU WENT WRONG
LOST IN THE WILDERNESS FOR TOO LONG
PAST IS BURIED DEAD AND GONE
CAN'T SEE THE POINT TO CARRY ON

NO GASOLINE LEFT TO BURN
BATTLES LOST NOTHING LEARNED
HOPES ALREADY GONE
PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN
Track Name: Melancholy eyes
NO ONE CAN CARRY YOUR LOAD
WE GOTTA LIVE AND DIE ALONE
LONELINESS FOLLOWS WHEREVER YOU GO
WE'RE ONLY HUMAN FLESH AND BONE

YOU CAN'T ESCAPE THE PAIN AND SORROW
LIFE FEEDS YOU MORE THAN YOU CAN SWALLOW
PEOPLE YOU MEET SEEM COLD AND SHALLOW
THEY LEAVE YOU FEELING BARE AND HOLLOW

NOWHERE TO RUN NOWHERE TO HIDE
YOU CAN PRETEND AND PUT ON A SMILE
THERE'S NO WAY TO DISGUISE
YOUR MELANCHOLY EYES
Track Name: Way back home
HEADING DOWN THAT DIRTY ROAD
BEING PULLED BY THE UNDERTOW
STILL GOT A LONG WAY TO GO
BUT YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY BACK HOME

THERE'LL BE PLENTY MORE DAYS
YOUR ONLY JUST HALFWAY
YOU MAY NEVER REAP WHAT YOU SOW
BUT YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY BACK HOME

THERE'S THINGS YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
LIFE DEALS YOU BLOW AFTER BLOW
UNTIL ALL HOPE IS GONE
YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY BACK HOME

THE OPEN ROAD IS WAY TOO LONG
HEAD WINDS COMING ON STRONG
WEARY AND CHILLED TO THE BONE
BUT YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY BACK HOME

WAY BACK HOME WAY BACK HOME
YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY BACK HOME
