lyrics

Up in the air,
Looking down at you.
You couldn’t see where I was going to.
Like a balloon,
Soaring like a bird.
You cut the strings and released me,
with your words.

Now I’m floating, floating, floating,
higher than you.
Going, further, farther
than you wanted me to.
And the truth burns brighter,
than the false ego of one.

Sometimes you get
To hold on -
to a moment
in time – time.
But if you try, try to control it,
then you realize, you,
Have to,
Have to, let it go.

Now I’m floating, floating, floating,
Higher than you.
Going further, farther than
You wanted me to.
And the truth be told,
Your insecurities do unfold.

Up in the air,
Looking down at you.
You couldn’t see where I was going,
Going to.
Release me, Release Me, Release Me.

Then I expanded my performance style by learning to play the guitar. Inspired by the guitar's voice, I wrote some new songs. "Admit One", highlights some of those “guitar” songs. I continue to write and perform new songs - Nov. 2015. ... more
