dwayne martin This a powerful and excellently paced album by a dedicated singer/songwriter. I heard many of these songs on an acoustic guitar recently. The same songs on this album pop out at you with the full band and excellent production. This album is a keeper. Favorite track: Die With Me.

about

John L keck Kansas City, Missouri

I write from personal experience on the whole, and even when I’m telling a tale, its grounded in something that's happened to me... a sliver of time in the crazy ride that has been my life. Hopefully that comes through honestly .I write about everything, often about love or emotions surrounding relationships, those seem to be the songs that people respond to the most. ... more

Track Name: Die With Me
Shattered Glass all over the floor
Bloody footprints walk your path out the back door
At the station a man is waiting, tickets for two
A great escaped plan for him and you

I know trust was not
The right word for us
Ya, but when you're gone
Your secrets will die with me
They’ll die with me

Somewhere a child screams
Nobody knows what it means
All over this town
Your dark shadow has been running round

Now i know, trust was not
The right word for us
Ooooh but when you're gone
Your secrets will die with me
They’ll die with me

Cold surprise when morning comes
Sirens in the new sun
Guilty by proximity
Left here to spoil and rot

Oh i know, trust was not the right word for us
Oh but when you’re gone
Your secrets will die with me
they’ll die with me
they’ll die with me
Track Name: How Long
How long, how long has it been?
so long now i don’t remember when
I could have used a good friend way back then
Oh, how long has been?

We buried her on the hill
The air was cold and the sky was still
I don’t think i ever will
Go back up on that hill

When i turned 18 i went on the road
Searching for you and the live that you stole
That’s what they talk about when our story’s told
Down that long twisted road

Finally i returned to our home
Clearly i was all alone
Crawled up the stairs and turned on some rolling stones
Here, in our abandoned home

Someday you will bury me on that hill
It’s inevitable i know you will
All those dreams going unfulfilled
Won’t you please bury me on that hill

But before i die,
I will raise my fist up the sky
I will ask your god why
Promise you this before i die
Promise you this before i die

So how long has it been?
So long i don’t remember when
I could have used you way back when
How long, how long has it been?
Track Name: Civilized
I tried, and tried, n tried
to be civilized
but you would not have me that way
i cried and cried and cried
to the glory in the sky
never received my reply

in the heart of the shadow
lies the soul of the quiet
it’s only frightened by the light of day
it’s a shame, shame shame
that the light has came
frightened all of the quiet away... away

i lied and lied and lied
to my family i lied
i could find no other words to say
goodbye goodbye goodbye
goodbye cruel world
i have no other use for you
Track Name: Star In The Sky
someday you will see you were meant to be
a star up in the sky
and on the ocean wide
you were meant to guide
the whole
of us home

someday you will find that fire in your mind
is the fuel of your dreams
someday you will know
peace in your soul
be as one at last

Someday my love, you will know
you are the light of my life
someday you will see
you were meant to be
Track Name: Vampire
Maybe i’ll die like a vampire
that’s all i really know
i tried to find a different way
but i couldn’t let go

i still to watch the fire burn
i still like to see the night fill up with smoke
i like the feeling when i start to choke

spend my last five dollars
on a four dollar hamburger at 3am
split it, with you, again
give that bit of change to the homeless man
he’s free’er then i will ever be
free’er then i will ever be

maybe i’ll die like a vampire
it’s all i really know
tried to find someone
nobody would show
i still like to watch the fire burn
oh i still like to see the night fill up with smoke
i like the feeling as i start to turn
as i start to choke
Track Name: Anywhere With You
Let’s go to California
they ain’t never seen nobody like ya
i’ll be james dean
you can be Marilyn Monroe

Let’s go to California
they ain’t never seen nobody like ya
i’ll be james dean
you can be Marilyn Monroe

Let’s go to New York
Shine them neon lights on you
we’ll dance up and down broadway
we’ll do everything our way

And i go anywhere with you
I’d go anywhere
I’d go anywhere with you

And i go anywhere with you
I’d go anywhere
I’d go anywhere with you

Let’s go to Peru
They don’t know about me and you
Climb that mountain Machu Picchu
And we’ll just do what we do

Let’s go to greece
find that golden fleece
live by the sea
write songs about you and me

And i go anywhere with you
I’d go anywhere
I’d go anywhere with you

And i go anywhere with you
I’d go anywhere
I’d go anywhere with you

Bonjour Ma Cheri
Je pense que vous etes tres belle ce soir
Allez-vous a Paris
Avec Moi?

let’s go to Amsterdam
we don’t have to wait on them
we’ll stay out all night
burn that town to the ground

I’d go anywhere with you
I’d go anywhere
I’d go anywhere with you

I’d go anywhere with you
I’d go anywhere
I’d go anywhere with you

So come on baby pack your bags
it’s time to go i’m ready to roll
this song for you, is through
Track Name: Your Lullaby
I am your gypsy boy
on a road i do not know
be my gypsy queen
i will do anything
buy you a diamond ring
...I’d buy you a diamond ring

I’d steal the gold
from the sun... for you
Silver from the moon
...silver from the moon

I am your traveler
in a place i do not know
looking to love to guide me back home
be the one for me
I will spend my days
living out your dreams
your wild dreams
...sweet dreams
Track Name: To The Ocean
Take me to the ocean
show me the sun
let the wind blow
let the waves come

hold onto emotion
with your heart undone
breath deep and slow
let the waves come

Oh let em come!!!
oooh let the waves come

With reckless abandon
live your life on the run
keep your eyes on the vanishing line
let the waves come
Oooohhhh let em come!!!
oooh let the waves come

So take me to the ocean
show me the sun
breathe deep and slow
let the waves come
