about

A labor of love recorded over the course of three years in my home studio. We'd performed strictly acoustic ballads for many years, but had always wanted to record something more driven and powerful.

About Time was the result. Hard to believe it was over 5 years ago!

Track Name: The Race
I’m dreamin’ – in brown and blue
I looked out – found something new
They say – gotta follow through
But I never had that point of view, that point of view
The Race runs through

I’m drownin’ – in black and white
Some say – it’s wrong or right
I never, never followed through
And I’m not afraid of the view, of the view, of the view
The Race runs through
The Race runs through
The Race runs through
The Race . . .

Fifty years tearing down walls
Now they build them up again
Strange instead of hammer and stars
Old scars opening
The Race runs through

Back to back and side to side
Now they dig the great divide
Over under in to you
Now I don’t know what to do
Pain and fear and hate and grief
Now it stands in stark relief
What would they have us do?

The Race runs through
The Race runs through
The Race runs through
The Race . . .

Fifty years tearing down walls
Now they build them up again
Strange instead of hammer and stars
Old scars opening

Fifty years tearing down walls
Now they build them up again
Strange instead of hammer and stars
Old scars opening, they’re opening
The Race runs through
Runs through
Runs through
Runs through
Track Name: Transparency
Can you see through me?
Apparently transparency’s going around
Stop watch, clock stop
Fears of gears are going round
Ship slip short trip
Seems we’ve run aground

And I might seem to lose from me
A measure of my transparency
The answer lies deeper than you see

Why might we leave
With all we left behind?
I might believe
I’m willing to run out of time
The days ahead are drifting
Shifting out of line
But I couldn’t keep it covered this time

Can you see through me?
Time casts a shadow that follows along
Watch stops, clock drops
Years no longer matter now
Sail ship, day trippin’ over the bow

And I might seem to lose from me
A measure of my transparency
The answer lies deeper than you see

Why might we leave
With all we left behind?
I might believe
I’m willing to run out of time
The days ahead are drifting
Shifting out of line
But I couldn’t keep it covered this time
Track Name: Charing Cross Station
Underground we didn’t fear
Oh the weight of it all
Found a pose
Image unclear
We didn’t see the fall

Looking back on Charing Cross Station
Looking back on Charing Cross Station

Lost in my head
I can’t feel it anymore
Try to hold on
Drifts away

Had to face the telling mirror
See the truth of it all
Failed to heed the warning clear
We feared the jaded call

Looking back on Charing Cross Station
Looking back on Charing Cross Station

Lost in my head
I can’t feel it anymore
Try to hold on
Drifts away

Charing Cross Station. . .
Track Name: Learning How
Rain coming down
In my head I found my way
Guiding in to this gray day
And I know
What I’ll be
When I run
When I fall down
How am I supposed to feel?
Tell me how I’m supposed to feel?

Every time I fall, I fall forever
Down and around
Time fly
Ever fear appears so near
And every time I fall
I’m learning how

Pain coming down
Found a way
Around the day
Loneliness will never stay
And I know
What I need
When I hope
When I rise up
Never fear, the road is long
Never fear the road you’re on

Every time I dream, I dream forever
Down and around
Time fly
Ever hope appears so near
And every time I dream
I’m learning how
I’m learning how
Track Name: ShadowGames
Losing five to seven
Moving on
You come together
Very strong
Sealed in time forever
Here you come

Games in shadows
Never see the sun
Framed in malice
Never get it done
Look around 360
You are one

Build a cookie cutter
For your soul
You fail to listen
Already know
Point you in direction
Watch you go

Games in shadows
Never see the sun
Framed in malice
Never get it done
Breathe out confusion so sincere
Nothing more than empty fear
And I’ve had enough
Can’t swallow anymore

You found your voice – megaphone
By George you’re loud
And not alone
But five million fools
No better than one

Games in shadows
Never see the sun
Framed in malice
Never get it done
Breathe out confusion so sincere
Nothing more than empty fear
And I’ve had enough
Can’t swallow anymore

No, no more
Track Name: Everything
Hey - when you feel life going under
Gather hope, might save the day
And when your nights are full of thunder
Little light will guide your way
So don’t fear
What you cannot see may be just the key
Hidden very near

Hold on tight
Please don’t give in
Find the right way
Then go in
You win a single spin
Wager everything

Don’t turn round
The way is near
It’s a maze
But can be clear
Don’t fear, a door appears
Leads to everything
You’ll find everything

Hey you with a life that’s full of Mondays
Get outside, see the light of day
And as you seek for a better someday
Take a hand and guide the way
And don’t fear
What you cannot see may be just the key
Hidden very near

Hold on tight
Please don’t give in
Find the right way
Then go in
You win a single spin
Wager everything

Don’t turn round
The way is near
It’s a maze
But can be clear
Don’t fear, a door appears
Leads to everything
You’ll find everything

Forget to feel it all
Forget the tears that fall
Forget the fear – lying over all
Track Name: Shattered
Here comes the gray rain
Wash over me
Colors running
Am I fading?
In too shallow
Still too strong for me
Try to stand, fall
Spinning I can’t see

Oh, so many years spent drowning
You’d think I’d learn to swim
Blindly I built a life safe within
Sound, but empty space
And now slowly drifting away

Hear comes the white dawn
Wash over me
Bring me up from the water
On to ground I need
Not safe, not sure
Not guaranteed
Where I will stand
And come to see

Oh, too many years spent drowning
I think it’s time to swim
Blindly I’d built a life safe within
Now I step into a world
Where I’ll be
Not safe, not sure
Not guaranteed
Track Name: Sunday Drive
Sunday drive
Ever after
Holy life
Growing faster

But this time
To face the wind
I sense disaster ahead
We test the mountain
Running scared we dare the valley
Shadows gather on our trail
And there we’ll find the answers

Running time
Ever changing
There goes mine
Rearranging my fears
Like the icy chairs on shattered liners
There’s no self-deception finer
Every time I think about it
Lose my mind elsewhere
But there I find the answers

Care the Father and the Son
Dare to leave the task undone
Bare your soul to everyone

There above the rising sun
Fare thee well my noble one
Share it all, leave none
To find the answers
To find the answer
To find the answers
Track Name: The Veil
Some dreams fail to last
Torn down by the fools in the black masks
Some truths drifting away
Washed over by the whim of day

You’ve got nothing to fear
It won’t come to this
Shackled by words from the sky
And we reach for the wind as it rushes by

To be free to live by a song
Grows too dear to meet the debt of the wronged
The truth served all along
No gold can help the soul to belong

You’ve got nothing to fear
It won’t come to this
Prison raised with best intent
And we reach for the wind as the veil is rent

While every answer is hidden under fear and jealousy
The truth still lingers over all of those with eyes to see
This disillusion and confusion
Hope will find a way

To be free to live by a song
Grows too dear to meet the debt of the wronged
The truth served all along
No gold can help the soul to belong

While every answer hidden under fear and jealousy
The truth still lingers over all of those with eyes to see
This disillusion and confusion
Hope will find a way

You’ve got nothing to fear
It won’t come to this
Prison raised with best intent
And we reach for the wind
Track Name: Sun Goes Down
The evening light lays low
Hills are gold
Sun goes down again

The river murmurs light
Welcome night
Sun goes down again

Standing alone
Pale light lingers on
Come away
Night’s waking

A path long tread he walks
Beckoned on
Sun goes down again
A whisper soft and clear
Home is near
Sun goes down again

Journey’s through
Here where it’s ever new
Gone the day
Night’s waking

The weight of memories gather round
The rush of time in every sound
The wage of years is always found

Journey’s through
Here where it’s ever new
Gone the day
Night’s waking
Track Name: End of All Things
He heard the distant thunder
Bent his head and waited
The night was deep
The stars were hid above

And yet the fear he should have felt
Somehow remained abated
He looked inside and recognized the truth

The cost
He’s waiting to count the numbers
The loss
Lies hidden while wisdom slumbers

How long the night
How short the day
Step in to light
Don’t lose the way

The weight of ages covers all
And lies in every footstep

Beyond the Dream
Beyond the near and known
You find the end of all things
