Written on the interstate back home, finalized at the Johnston's.

lyrics

My eyes are heavy as the storm outside
My mind is wandering places I don’t like
I wish my heart could grow colder as the cold front comes
The daylight’s fleeing and the light grows dim
I beg my mind to keep my thoughts from him
Oh I wish my heart could grow colder as the front comes in

But give me a reason to fight – I’ll fight for you
A wrong and a wrong take the right right under you
A fool and a lover seem quite the same thing sometimes

Love talked so sweetly in those cold nights gone
But it holds no punches now the night turns dawn
Oh I wish my heart could grow colder as the cold front comes

But give me a reason to fight – I’ll fight for you
A wrong and a wrong take the right right under you
A fool and a lover seem quite the same thing sometimes

The cars fly by – A sea of headlights bright
Above, the stars they steal from shine a dimmer light
I will not give my soul to find the lesser prize
Cause everyone knows – Sadness comes and goes
It’ll be alright

But give me a reason to fight – I’ll fight for you
A wrong and wrong – No right to run to you
A fool and a lover seem quite the same thing
And hoping in nothing is foolish and vain
But nothing and something seem quite the same thing sometimes
Now all my hoping is in you, the Brighter Light

Currently living and writing music in Poitiers, France, I hope this is the first album of many. ... more
