There is nothing worse than feeling Like you've been wasting all your time I'm having a hard time believing That I am not wasting mine I have these dreams that I hold onto There are some chances I have to take There is a world that I belong to I have some plans that I should make ooh I'm done wondering I’m through just waiting for things to change You've been telling me who you think I could be I am beginning to believe I've had 7 years of bad luck for reasons I can't quite explain I can still see my reflection Though it does not look the same Time is moving by so quickly The pictures fading in the frames I remember when I saw you And I could not look away ooh I'm done wondering I’m through just waiting for things to change You've been telling me who you think I could be I am beginning to believe I am beginning to believe I am beginning to believe

If you ever need a helping hand When your life just seems to be too hard You can always trust that I will be there I'll pick up all the pieces of your heart If love ever shatters it apart I will be the light there in the dark I know how sad it feels to be alone I know just what it's like to be afraid When the world just seems to make no sense I will always come to your defense We are one for all and all for one And I will be the one that you can lean on You can always count on me You can always count on me Just like the stars at night Up in the sky shining bright You can always count on me You know that I will always be your friend Even if the others have all gone No matter where you are or what you've done When you call that I will always run To stand there by your side and hold your hand You can believe that I will be there You can always count on me You can always count on me Just like the stars at night Up in the sky shining bright You can always count on me (whoa, o, o, o, o) Just like tide comes in Just like the river flows Just like the seasons go Just like the milky way And just like a sunny day Just like the deep blue sea And just like gravity Just like New Orleans Rain And just like John Coltrane Just like the Rolling Stones and just like Booker T (yeah yeah) You can always count on me (whoa, o, o, o, o) You can always count on me You can always count on me

I've got the snake skin boots I've got the pin stripe suit I've got cash in the bank and I've got gas in the tank I drive this clean new car I've got this shiny guitar You might think I have everything that a man could want People say I'm the best Better than all the rest But everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you Everything don't mean anything Everything don't mean anything Everything don't mean anything If I ain't got you I eat the finest steak I get my whiskey by the case I've got a house on the hill and a swimming pool I've looked the devil in the eye And I'm not afraid to die But as long as I'm alive, I need you by my side Aww Honey, I think you're the best Better than all the rest And everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you Everything don't mean anything if I ain't got you Everything don't mean anything Everything don't mean anything Everything don't mean anything If I ain't got you

If you find yourself feeling blue And you need something to get you through Smile and sing a happy song It may seem like a silly thing to do But take a minute and try this won't you Smile and sing a happy song Here we go.. La, La, La, La, La La You feel better now I know you do You should listen I'm telling you It works for me and it will work for you too if you, smile and sing a happy song smile and sing a happy song La, La, La, La, La La You feel better now I know you do Sing too loud or sing it out of tune Stand on one foot or stand on two Just smile and sing a happy song smile and sing a happy song smile and sing a happy song

It's underneath my skin Flowing in my blood No matter how much I get, can't seem to get enough It's making me sweat I can't catch my breath I've got no reason to believe I will get over this There ain't no cure for this love There ain't no cure for this love My body is aching My knees are shaking And the pounding of my heart feels like the earth quaking When she walks into the room She's all my eyes can see And when her whisper leaves her lips it burrows deep inside of me Now I've seen good love walk out my door too many times before That's never what we're looking for But here we go again Red Roses and serenades It's not something we can vaccinate There ain't no cure for this love There ain't no cure for this love

It's come undone It's fallen out Your beating heart Is broken You feel the wind Against your skin You can't explain This predicament There are no rules Where you are now You've sacrificed the Sacred cow But it's alright It's ok But it's alright It's ok You're gonna get another chance at love someday Don't be hard on yourself You're gonna meet somebody else It's alright, it's ok It is all A puzzle now Just angry words All around You said hello She said goodbye You walk along The boulevard I see it in your eyes You are in disguise Wish you weren't at all Who you are But it's alright It's ok But it's alright It's ok You're gonna get another chance At love someday Don't be hard on yourself You're gonna meet somebody else It's alright, it's ok

It sure doesn't seem like 40 years It's so damn good to have you here I hope that life's been good to you Yeah it wasn't easy, I know that's true We all went our separate ways Running from those memories I never talked about it much We all said we'd keep in touch I guess it takes a long, long time to finally put it all behind We were kids when we went in Not really sure where to begin Let's talk about love Let's talk about fear Let's talk about the people we hold dear Let's talk about anything But winning isn't everything Maybe we were wrong or Maybe we were right Maybe we were itching for a fight Maybe we're the lonely ones tonight But I know we're the lucky ones Lucky that we're still here so that I can call you my friend Lucky we can say the things that really matter in the end Lucky we can laugh out loud at our own expense When I saw their names all carved into that wall I realized we're the lucky ones I know we're the lucky ones What can I tell about how I've done? I own this house, we raised two sons Sharon passed a few years back She would have liked you, I'm sure of that My memory is all worn down But somehow the nightmares stick around I still remember that song we sang Just to break the boredom in DaNang We'd be cowards to pretend We were not frightened of the end So here's a toast to those we lost Don't know what we got for what it cost Let's talk about love Let's talk about fear Let's talk about the people we hold dear Maybe we're the lonely ones tonight but I think we're the lucky ones I know we're the lucky ones We are the lucky ones I know we are the lucky ones

Tonight the moon fell from the sky Splashed into the salty sea I can see it in your eyes I can see you're done with me Tonight the moon fell from the sky the darkness covers me like oil I don't need the reasons why we have no time left now to spoil And the stars still shine And my broken heart Still beats in time I'll say goodbye my love Say goodbye Goodbye my love Say goodbye Tonight the moon fell from the sky The tides will cease to rise and fall Your heart no longer carries mine I can't do anything at all And the stars still shine And my broken heart Still beats in time Tonight the moon fell from the sky Tonight the moon fell from the sky Tonight the moon fell from the sky And the stars still shine And my broken heart Still beats in time
9.
Don't say that Don't be so hard on yourself Lets look at the facts What could you have done Any differently Don't look back What's done is done It don't matter now Just relax And feel the sun warm on your skin Don't be in such a hurry Don't waste your life with worry I had a dream you had a gold tiara on A movie scene You were the star attraction A beauty queen You looked like Miss America It felt so real and you seemed so happy there Listen to what I'm saying The world is out there Waiting for you Waiting for You Waiting for You For you You are a star A light that shines On all you see A galaxy Of grace and hope And possibility Don't listen to what they're saying Your future is bright and it's waiting for you Listen, your future is bright and it's It's waiting for you It's waiting for you It's waiting for you You It's waiting for you It's waiting for you It's waiting for you You

Even in this darkest hour I still hear the angel choir singing in my ear Even when the end seems close I can sense a new beginning coming It's so clear I still believe in love and truth and a peaceful world I'm not naive I don't need proof I see it every day We can be the change we want Children running laughing playing Show me just how easy it would be For us too Everybody dancing singing helping giving understanding Will come true I still believe in love and truth and a peaceful world I'm not naive I don't need proof I see it every day We can be the change we want We can be the change we want I still believe in love and truth and a peaceful world I'm not naive I don't need proof I see it every day We can be the change we want We can be the change we want We can be the change we want For our brothers We can be the change For our sisters We can be the change For our mothers We can be the change We can be the change For our fathers We can be the change For our children We can be the change For our country We can be the change We can be the change For the whole world We can be the change For the whole world We can be the change For the whole world We can be the change We can be the change we want We can be the change we want We can be the change we want We can be the change

about

This is the live recording from the first set of my CD "Pre-Release" Show at SPACE on 12-4-17.
The set featured some of my very talented friends and mentors performing one of the songs that I had written along with the unbelievably talented musicians from the CD “So Happy!”.

I can’t tell you how gratifying it was for me to sit in the audience and hear these people perform my songs! It was without a doubt the best part of the show for me! Everyone performed songs that I thought were absolutely perfect for them and they did them about 1000 times better than I could ever do them!

As far as the quality of recording goes, there were some “issues” which I will not get into, but what you are hearing is the best we could do with the feeds that we got. Overall, it really captures the live feel of the show.

This night was really a magical night for me and I am very grateful for everyone that performed and everyone who came that night!
