It's not because you're late again It's not because you're soft. I have a way of making friends and send them running off. We'll make cool shit I must admit but then I'll find a way to quit so don't let me distract you from your life. I need a voice inside my head I need to hear a sound the silence seems to bother me not lost but I'm not found. A simple buzz to point the way I'll try it out but I won't stay when your head's up in the clouds you don't need the ground. Give your heart to me I promise it's just temporarily lost I do it all the time and I'll be back next year with new songs 'bout my latest fears but you you're going to be just fine. Give your heart to me I promise it's just temporarily lost I do it all the time and I'll be back next year with new friends and some brand new tears but you you're going to be just fine.

Lost days a new year's begun time fades and the battle's not won. New shoes and nowhere to go heartbreaks and some pistols for show. I'll stay here till you're gone. A heart beats another resides strides made to be buried alive. A close race can never be won but by yourself you can have some fun. I'll stay here till you're gone. I miss the smile on your face so many die while we wait. Lost days a new year's begun time fades and the battle's not won. New shoes and nowhere to go heartbreaks and some pistols for show. I'll stay here till you're gone.

I don't know if you're the reason but I'm leaving. Couldn't tell you why maybe it's the season. I've had enough and there's not much time I'm gunna play my hand on the west coast line. I find away to make everything go wrong maybe this time I'm better off alone. Cuz I've been thinking 'bout your high west gold baby. I can't stop thinking 'bout your high west gold baby. What you know about your high west gold cuz I'm gunna find mine I'm taking my time that high west gold gunna be mine. I'm a stranger in a strange land but I work hard I pull my weight never ask for a thing. I'm gunna shine cuz it's my time you're gunna know my name. I find away to make everything go wrong maybe this time I'm better off alone. Cuz I've been thinking 'bout your high west gold baby. I can't stop thinking 'bout your high west gold baby. What you know about your high west gold cuz I'm gunna find mine I'm taking my time that hight west gold gunna be mine.

You've got your bubble gum evil at the tip top inn. Leaning up against the wall and someone something's making you feel queasy. I need a wide open something or other. Maybe a space of dirt and a gust blazing and blowing maybe a porch cuz we're here in the ghetto rocking out on Whiskey, yeah we're here in the ghetto rocking out on Whiskey. Second shot you're cackling good arm in arm just like we should. Digging all the cool friends we got. Third shot things are still ok though you may see me sway a tad. Oh yeah life is radicle when you're hooping and a hollering shaking and drooling. Praising the music like it's the face of God, let your tongue loose, let this charade out of the cage cuz we're here in the ghetto rocking out on Whiskey, yeah we're here in the ghetto rocking out on Whiskey. Pretty soon we're screaming at each other in the alley your pride is bigger than a bowling ball. And I wanna catch you but I can barely crawl. Why don't you go hang out with your bonehead friends? Oh I forgot that's me....cuz we're here in the ghetto rocking out on Whiskey, yeah we're here in the ghetto rocking out on Whiskey.

Blues, stay away from me Blues, why don't you let me be? I don't know why you keep on haunting me Love was never meant for me True love was never meant for me It seems somehow, we never can agree Life is full of misery Dreams are like a memory Bringing back your love that used to be Tears so many I can't see Years don't mean a thing to me Time goes by and still, I can't be free

Sitting here in limbo But I know it won't be long Sitting here in limbo Like a bird without a song Well, they're Putting up resistance But I know that my faith Will lead me on Sitting here in limbo Waiting for the dice to roll Sitting here in limbo Got some time to search my soul Well, they're Putting up resistance But I know that my faith Will lead me on I don't know where life will lead me But I know where I've been I can't say what life will show me But I know what I've seen Tried my hand At love and friendship But all that is passed and gone This little boy is moving on Sitting here in limbo Waiting for the tide to flow Sitting here in limbo Knowing that I have to go Well, they're Putting up resistance But I know that my faith Will lead me on I can't say what life will show me But I know what I've seen I can't say where life will lead me But I know where I've been Tried my hand At love and friendship But all that is passed and gone This little boy is moving on Sitting here in limbo Waiting for the tide to flow Sitting here in limbo Knowing that I have to go Well, they're Putting up resistance But I know that my faith Will lead me on Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)

about

On the year anniversary of the California stay at home order I decided to release a "live in quarantine" acoustic EP of some special performances I did over the last year with friends. Covid brought a year without live music, and time to reflect on what's really important, so for me the best music to make was live, raw, and honest. Good tunes, good friends, and no bells and whistles. Hope you enjoy.
