On Your Mark (free) 03:28
You look away only to find What was there is left behind No regrets, just confess That it's easier said then done I am standing here Waiting for a sign On your mark Let's go So come around and wait Never feel ashamed I don't need to be the one you choose So come around with faith Let it take its place I don't need to be the one you choose Are you ready to go Ready to run Ready to leave everyone Ready or not here I come You better start to run You look ahead only to find What was there is now in line You never know until you try Don't let it slip and pass you by Now you're standing there Waiting for a sign On your mark Let's go So come around and wait Never feel ashamed I don't need to be the one you choose So come around with faith Let it take its place I guess I'll be the one who has to choose I just really need to know C'mon tell me very slow On your mark Get set On your mark, let's go You look away only to find What was there is left behind No regrets, just confess

Sometimes you never have a choice Sometimes you never have a voice Sometimes you never see the point Will you be the one to realize? Will you be the one to sacrifice? Will you be the one to share the light? And you'll be waiting For something to come around You'll be hoping for change So where are we going to go? Where are we going to be? When will we find our missing piece? Is it right in front of us? Is it something we can't see? So where are we going to go? Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye Sometimes it's hard to compromise Sometimes it's hard to realize Will you be the one to overcome? And you'll be waiting For something to come around You'll be hoping for change With all your doubts And all your lies That you make up in your mind With all your faith And all your, Cries All your cries

A Moment 03:44
I have to say I've been dying to meet you I've been praying for truth And it's all I can do I have to say I don't know if it's going anywhere anymore All I can say.... Will it ever be a moment like this? Will it ever be any better? Will I ever see another moment like this? I have to say that we played it out well And I never knew that you did too Along the way I took it slowly And I took my time All you can say.

What happened to the days we've had? When everything seemed so clear And everything seemed to fall in place With every little thing you do And every little smile you've made It always made me feel like this But I never knew that it could be this way... But I never knew that it could be this way... If you can leave all of this behind I'll put my heart on your sleeve. Cause I can't leave all of this behind So put your heart on your sleeve. Remember all the nights we've had? Remember all things we'd say? Remember how we used to be? Remember how it felt so right? To hold you in my arms so tight. You're the only one I know That could always tell what I'm thinking next But I'm here to say that this was all for you. If you can leave all of this behind I'll put my heart on your sleeve. So I can leave all of this behind I'll put my heart on my sleeve I'll put my heart on my sleeve I don't wanna fall back down I don't wanna fall back down Cause there's nothing you can say There's nothing you can do There's nothing you can say For this to go away If you can leave all of this behind I'll put my heart on your sleeve. So I can leave all of this behind 'Cause I never knew that this could be this way So it's time to leave all of this behind... It's time to leave all of this behind

You've always had a place to hide when you feel like The world is falling down. And at times you may feel like you've had No one else I just want you to know that I would've been there for you. And who knows what will happen next, It's all up to you. Cause look who's been through this before I've never had my way Look who's been knocked down to the floor I'll get up anyway Look who's been through this before I've never had my way. Look who's been knocked down to the floor I'll get up anyway And as you walk on by I put my chin up high Pretend it's all okay And then you talk to me with a smile on And I'll wonder why? I'll wonder why it's so hard for you to take The risk on me I just don't want you to end up like everyone else
6.
All your life you've been through so much And all the fights that you had to go through You take and take Never knowing what it is to be happy Well here you go All your life you've tried so hard And all the times that you never came through You wait and wait Never knowing what it is to be happy Well here you go Well here you go Do you mind waiting? For another chance Or just let this take its place Do you mind waiting? While it passes by Do you mind waiting? For another chance Or just let this take its place Do you mind waiting? While it passes by While it passes by Do you mind waiting? While it passes by Do you mind failing at another chance

A Miracle 04:24
Come back to me I'll be right here with you Waiting for a miracle A miracle that might be right here I will climb higher than the mountains I will come for you in despair I will climb higher than the mountains I will come for you in despair Take my hand I'll be right here with you Praying for a miracle A miracle that might be right here I've been waiting for so long Can't find it, Can't find it I've been waiting for so long

Is it you who see's the world differently? Follow me, follow me I'll open your eyes so you see that it's not the same Come to me Don't let yourself be afraid Don't you see, don't you see That this isn't the same at all So don't look away And this time will you fall down I'll save you from the world you know And I'll be waiting for something to change Cause I've already fallen How did I fall for all your lies? And how did you make everything all right? How did I fall for all your lies when everything seemed so.. It seemed okay. Talk to me and I'll figure out what to do. Listen now, listen now, And I'll tell you what to see. Cause you don't believe in this life The life that offers so much How about this, how about this Try not to run away like you do every day.

We're Alive 03:49
Where were you when we needed help? Where were you when we couldn't find our way? I don't need to feel your pain I don't need to feel this way Where were you when we were alone? Where were you when we couldn't see the way? I don't need to feel your pain I don't need to feel this way We're alive I can be all that you need We're alive So come and follow me And I can be everything I can be all that you need We're Alive I can be all that you need Where do we go from here? How do we find our own answers? Sometimes we get a little scared When we don't know the answers Where were you when we were alone? Where were you when we couldn't see the way? I don't need to feel your pain I don't need to feel this way And we've been waiting so patiently This life it seems so hard But we've been holding on Until you make a move I'll be here waiting with you Until you believe

Right Now 03:37
Looking up into the sky I see the light Flashing in between the clouds I finally feel the weight under me And it cannot go away Can you finally forgive this now? Right now, I can save you here right now I can take away your pain I can save you now Right now Looking up into the clouds I hear the sound Of the lights passing by I'll make a wish for this to go away And let healing take its place So you finally forgive this now And looking at all the people Wondering what they would say One thing's for sure They would say They would say pray

about

* "On Your Mark" is free for download.
* "A Moment" is free for download.


I wrote the songs on this album during my mother's battle with cancer a few years ago. Going through loss and a lost relationship gave me a lot to write about. I spent 1 year writing and the next year I was in the studio working on this debut album "The World You Know".

I went into the studio with just my acoustic thinking this would just be an acoustic record. It didn't end up that way though. I added a lot of elements to each song. Some of my favorite tracks on this album are "Leave This Behind", "A Moment" and "Right Now".

When people listen to this record, I want them to know that no matter how crazy your life gets, things will get better. You hear it all the time - I know - but it's true. Writing some of these songs was when I was going through a lot but it also helped me forgive, and heal. I hope this album reaches you and helps you in whatever situation you're in.
