about

I’ve spent the last year and a half writing, performing and recording songs for my debut album, and it’s been a great time. I’ve poured my heart and soul into each track, trying to make sure I put out the best album possible. I’m confident there’s something in here for everybody, no matter what kind of music you like - please give it a listen! It'd mean the world.

Track Name: No More Sleep
It's a good day for me
I won't be getting sleep
Gone my old way again
My memory's yours to keep

Tonight, I'm gone
But I'll still think about you everyday
I'm in harm's way
Tonight, I'm done
But I'll keep dreaming about you 'till I get no more sleep

Happy birthday to me
You're still a million miles away
Are we still friends today
I don't know what to say

Today's the day
I'm gonna make them go away
I'm in harm's way
Today, I win
I'm gonna keep on going 'till I get no more sleep

Today's the day
I'm gonna make them go away
I'm in harm's way
Today, I win
I'm gonna keep on going 'till I get no more sleep
Get no more sleep
Get no more sleep
Track Name: Every Friday (Dance)
Get with the times and turn on your mind
You party like there's no tomorrow
You never know what you might find
In the midst of all that pain and sorrow

You put on a smile every day and night
But no one knows just what you're hiding
So get on the dance floor and shake it up
You work all day so time to ignite

Oooo-ooo-ooh, move your feet and take it up a notch
Oooo-ooh, baby, take it up a bit for me
Oooo-ooo-ooh, move your feet and take it up a notch
Oooo-ooh, baby, take it up a bit for me

Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now

You work all day but no one knows
So party like there's no tomorrow
You never know what you might find
And you have to steal and beg and borrow

You put on a smile every day and night
But no one knows just what you're hiding
So get on the dance floor and shake it up
You work all day so time to ignite

Oooo-ooo-ooh, move your feet and take it up a notch
Oooo-ooh, baby, take it up a bit for me
Oooo-ooo-ooh, move your feet and take it up a notch
Oooo-ooh, baby, take it up a bit for me

Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now

Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now

Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Every Friday night, dance with me right now
Track Name: That's Not How It Works
You see what I'm talking about
So, you ask why I won't let you in
Then you say you're not like that

You ask why they don't hang around
So, you like to talk about yourself
And push everyone away

No no, I said no no, honey, that's not how it works
No no, there's no need to say your sorries to me now

You know everybody believes you
And you've had it so easy your whole life
Hey, you don't know what you've got

Yesterday, you said you're above it
The attention you loved it, don't lie
Hey, I know how it feels like right now

No no, I said no no, honey, that's not how it works
No no, there's no need to say your sorries to me now

No no, I said no no, honey, that's not how it works
No no, there's no need to say your sorries to me now
Track Name: Don't Call On Me
Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anything else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anyone else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't ever trust me with anything
I won't remember
Don't ever trust me with anything
Boy, you gotta fix it now
Don't call on me

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anything else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anyone else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't ever call on me to help you 'cause I can't be trusted with anything else
Don't ever call on anyone else, you can trust me
I don't know what I am saying
I don't know what I am saying

Don't call on me
Track Name: Graham Thomas
I'd like to leave this town
And build my own place
Away from the city
Then we could live freely
You, you made me realize
What we do is just fine
Then you try to tell me
Taste the cherries and the wine

This old place
Is not fit for living now
First time I've seen your face
Breathe you in right now
You, you made me realize
What we do is just fine
Then you try to say
When you're carefree and have nothing left

This little town
Is so far away from you
Wanna hear a story?
I'm sure that you would
You, you made me realize
What we do is just fine
Then you try to tell
Me that when you're lost and lonely now

When you have no one left
Call and I'll be right there
When you have nobody
Yell and I'll be right there
Girl, you can talk to me
When they all leave you here
Please just know that I'm there for you

This little town
Is so far away from you
Wanna hear a story?
I'm sure that you would
You, you made me realize
What we do is just fine
Then you try to tell
Me that when you're lost and lonely now

When you have no one left
Call and I'll be right there
When you have nobody
Yell and I'll be right there
Girl, you can talk to me
When they all leave you here
Please just know I'm there for you
There for you

When you have no one left
Call and I'll be right there
When you have nobody
Yell and I'll be right there
Girl, you can talk to me
When they all leave you here
Please just know that I'm there for you, girl
Track Name: Monday Morning
Never felt so far away
It's time to leave this town
But if I will return
You won't see anything

It's been a nice time
But it's time for me to leave
I'm packing all my bags
And then I'll be on my way, honey

Monday morning, out the door
Tuesday morning, out to shore
Wednesday morning, there'll be no more of me

Every time I wake up now
I feel something so real
The room is spinning round
It's spinning out of control

I can't sleep anymore
'Cause it's been too long and been too late for me
I'm walking out the door
And then I'll be on my way, honey

Monday morning, making tea
Tuesday morning, out to sea
Wednesday morning, you won't see me again

We used to skip along all the rain
Why'd you need a reason for the things you say?
I'm not sure if I can ease the pain
We all know what's coming so why do we still live in fear?

Monday morning, out the door
Tuesday morning, out to shore
Wednesday morning, there'll be no more of me

Monday morning, leaving home
Tuesday morning, on my own
Wednesday morning, you should've known by now
Track Name: The Coast
Close my eyes
Every night
All the time, every night
Everywhere I go
Well, I never want to leave this place, I never wanna go back

Don’t leave now
Everyone needs someone to follow
Everywhere I go
Well, I never want to leave this place, I never wanna go back

I wanna
Tell you something
I’ve always liked you from the start
To be honest, I can't tell you
What I think you should know
Don't go

Make a wish
Every night
All the time, every night
Everywhere I go
Well, I never want to leave this place, I never wanna go back

Tell me a story
Where do you come from?
Tell me a story
Don't leave me hanging

Tell me a story
Where do you come from?
Tell me a story
Don't leave me hanging
Track Name: When I Dream Of You
Every night when I dream about you
I feel things I can't explain
If I could, I'd have left too soon
I don't think it's worth living with the pain

I think I've been here too long
But I thought I'd let you know
Where are we gonna go?

I used to be able to speak
But now I can only
Talk with a whisper

I'm so sorry but I'm getting impatient
Day and night, I feel this sensation
Every night, counting every minute
But why am I here if I'm not playing to win it?

I think I've been here too long
But I thought I'd let you know
Where are we gonna go?

I used to be able to speak
But now I can only
Talk with a whisper

I think I've been here too long
But I thought I'd let you know
Where are we gonna go?

I used to be able to speak
But now I can only
Talk with a whisper
Track Name: Blade
When they come and try to take your pride
They don’t understand what you can do
They can try to change my universe
Everything is fine when I’m with you

If you want me to, I’ll go away
The higher I go, the more I realize
We’ll meet each other
Again
You’ll warm up to me

When they come and try to take your soul
They don’t understand what you can do
They can try to change your universe
Everything is fine when I’m with you

If you want me to, I’ll go away
The higher I go, the more I realize
We’ll meet each other
Again
You’ll warm up to me
Track Name: The Willow Tree
We were alone together, lying underneath the willow tree
You told me you'd be leaving soon, but there were things you wanted to see

So you took me to the cavern where we used to play as kids
Writing on the walls, just sloppy scrawls, it was where we first hid
You said "Never forget my name 'cause I'll be back"

The streets are empty and deserted, now there's nothing to do or see
Stuck on the wrong side of the moon, but it don't matter much to me
When you were here, the town was booming, now it's all lonely and drab
I have my calendar, I'm marking the days until you'll be back

Heart to heart in the jungle
We've come to meet our fate
Eye to eye, side to side
The hour's getting late
I've been waiting decades now just to see the sun rise again
I thought I might never make it out and then, here you came

We were young, spending our days living insane
Now we look back at everything we've done in vain
And your soul keeps singing the blues
But it's all over, there's nothing to lose
Anymore
Track Name: Candle Boy
All night
Every night I think about the things we did
I remember when we used to live on the edge
But now it's different 'cause we're older and the candles
Blow out in the

Clocks above
They never ticked so fast enough
Days are gone
They never went so fast enough

Candle boy
My tragedy
Never found the time
With the possibilities

Seems like
All the years we knew each other now are gone
I can't make out anything that's happened then
Our bodies grow old but our minds are very young
Gazing at the

Clocks above
They never ticked so fast enough
Days are gone
They never went so fast enough

Candle boy
My tragedy
Never found the time
With the possibilities
Track Name: Rising Falls [Bonus Track]
When the pieces fall together
Know I'm there for you
And when your hopes are shattered
I'll see you through
I know it's been a long time
Since you have seen me
Nothing will ever be the same
'Cause everything's changed

I'll never know which way to go
Telling me something that I don't need
I'll never know which way to go
Telling me something that I won't need

Tonight, it's all going down
Time to put this all to rest
And if my hopes are shattered
Well, I did my best
Been fighting this for a long time
My own jealousy
Nothing will ever be the same
'Cause everything's changed

I'll never know which way to go
Telling me something that I don't need
I'll never know which way to go
Telling me something that I won't need

I'll never know which way to go
Telling me something that I don't need
I'll never know which way to go
Telling me something that I won't need

Heaven must have sent ya
I've been waiting for something now
Heaven must have sent ya
I've been waiting for something now
Hey man, how's it feel to be the first spaceman?
Hey man, how's it feel to know my life's in your hands?
Heaven must have sent ya
I've been waiting for something now
Heaven must have sent ya
I've been waiting for something now
