Music

These songs are an amalgamation of my experiences with some of the greatest musicians and friends on the planet!

I feel blessed and thankful for the journey together and everyone’s extraordinary talent!

My music is combination of all my influences and I feel fortunate to be able to express that in my songs. I was fortunate to be raised in New Jersey and New York in the 70s when music had no bounds and was diverse and I got to see and meet all the greats and visionaries. I love it all from jazz, R&B to classic rock.

Lyrics
VERSE
Silent Heart like a kite on a string frayed and ready to break It wants to fly away
It’s shadow wants to stay
Its your saving grace

CHORUS
Baby I want you forever
But forever is much too soon
Like a bird flying south for the winter Reaching up for the clouds
and trying to fly to the moon

VERSE
Silent Heart keeps falling down like the rain
To wash away the pain
It wants the sun to shine
You know the more you try keeps getting colder outside

CHORUS
Baby I want you forever
But forever is much too soon
Like a mountain I stand in your doorway I’m trying to get inside
I’m reaching out to you..

BRIDGE
Baby I’m not fooling when I say I’m gonna hold on tight But the wind just keeps on blowing
In your Silent Heart tonight…

CHORUS
Baby I want you forever
But forever is much too soon
Like a bird flying south for the winter Reaching up for the clouds
and trying to fly to the moon

OUTRO
Baby I want you forever Forever is much too soon…

Silent Heart

ALL FOR YOU

Lyrics
VERSE

AII FOR YOU

Deep down inside I close my eyes swallow my pride without thinking Inside my head I’m on a bridge I’m ready to cross the water

PRE CHORUS

I’m looking down
And you keep on calling

Cause I’m falling now
And you keep on calling

CHORUS

My love is
All I have for you
It’s all for you
VERSE
With angels breath she whisper it
As I listen to what she tells me
You can never be ready for this
Its not what they ever told her
BRIDGE
In my arms holding tight
Love comes calling Love comes calling In my heart through the night
Love comes calling Love comes calling Just take my hand
And hold on to love
Come and take my hand
Love comes calling calling

CHORUS OUT

AWAKE SLEEPING

Lyrics
AWAKE SLEEPING

VERSE:
Morning Sunlight
Shines upon the dawn
And evening starlight shines upon us all
CHORUS:
And we’re awake sleeping
Roaming the planet
And searching the soul
And we’re awake sleeping And dreaming Together alone And we’re awake…sleeping
VERSE:
Animal instinct
The human cause
Heart drums are beating and
Consciousness calls
CHORUS:
And we’re awake sleeping
Roaming the planet
And searching the soul
And we’re awake sleeping And dreaming Together alone And we’re awake…sleeping
BRIDGE:
Waiting for hours
For calls on the phone
And love waits for no one
While your waiting alone
And I can hear the laughter
And I can feel the tears
Keep a calling from the distance
Wanting to be near
VERSE:
Mind spirit rising
The earths fragile shell
Melting and melting
Into smoldering hell
CHORUS:
And we’re awake sleeping
Roaming the planet
And searching the soul
And we’re awake sleeping And dreaming Together alone And we’re awake…sleeping

GET EM ALL

Lyrics
Get Em All

VERSE
I played around
Can not fall and line up together in my town it’s fine My self respect is nothing more
I heard a sound just like a call can make me feel better They tell me I’m blind I got my ear up to the wall

PRE CHORUS
And I drive around
Trigger effect taken for dead
And I played around
Bullets are slow your bullets are so slow

CHORUS
No way to go it’s no way to go Stand up Fall down
Go on out and get em all now X2

VERSE
I can’t be wrong
Getting along a lifetime together In my state of mind
Theirs no regrets without a cause

PRE CHORUS
and I drive around
Trigger effect taken for dead
and I played around
Bullets are slow your bullets are so slow

CHORUS
No way to go it’s no way to go Stand up Fall down
Go on out and get em all now

VERSE
Can’t tell can’t place can’t find Liberty is more than I’m used to I like to kill but not enough to save you from your own demise

CHORUS
No way to go it’s no way to go Stand up Fall down
Go on out and get em all now
