New Recording Project Underway: Stages

Hi all! It’s been awhile since my last bout of bloggaliciousness. I’ve been trying to let the dust settle after The Sound‘s CD release show. It was such a fun and beautiful experience, I cannot thank everyone enough for their love and support.

Over the last few months I went through a relationship that didn’t work out. I realized just a few days ago that at every stage of the relationship, I wrote a song:

1) Before I met her: Love Will Find Me
2) After meeting her for the first time – The One That Got Away
3) While we were together – All In
4) After we broke up – Questions, Promise in the Pain
5) During a process of introspection and renewal/rediscovery – This is the Last Time, Love Anyway

NOTE: Song lyrics are printed at the end of this post.

Through these songs, the listener is able to gain insight into all phases of a failed relationship:

Contentment and non-expectation
Excitement and relational discovery
Enamor
The end
Recovery, confidence in the future, and hope


So many folks around me are in similar seasons of life. I really hope and pray that these songs can speak to people, wherever they may be. It’s important to realize that you are not alone. You are never the only person that goes through something. And ultimately, for most, only one dating experience will ever actually be a success. It’s the failures that make you more aware of what you do need and want for your life. Your person is out there, living his/her life right now. You’re not going to miss him/her, so be patient and know that you are loved.

Once it’s completed, the intent for this album is for it be 100% free. It’s gonna be a very raw, indie “live-in-the-studio” sort of project. We will likely record a live performance video for each tune as well. I’m super excited and will keep you posted on the progress!

In other news…

Love and kisses,

Lyrics

Love Will Find Me

I’m okay with myself, but that’s not the issue
And 
I love where I am, but sometimes I miss you

A “you” that’s not there

But I won’t stop believing

that God knows just where you are

That’s relieving

I’ll be right here waiting for you

I know you’re near, but one thing is true

I won’t be looking for love

It’ll find me

I’m alright day to day; I’m not too lonely

But feeling this way, it could be only

that I miss the girl who’s not there

And I can’t stop believing

that God knows just where she is

It’s intriguing

I’ll be right here waiting for you

I know you’re near, but one thing is true

I won’t be looking for love

It’ll find me

It’s hard to believe that you are out there somewhere

I can’t wait for the day when you’re finally with me

I’ll be right here waiting for you

I know you’re near, but one thing is true

Love will find me

You’re out there living your life

and someday you’ll be my wife

So I won’t be looking for love
No, no I won’t be looking for love
It’ll find me

You are out there


The One That Got Away

This is so much more than I can take
How can I know for sure?
I need words, sweet words that I can say
to open up that door
to what we have become, so unsure
Please tell me
I hope it’s you that loves me

Could she be the one I’ve been waiting for?
She’s all that I’ve wanted for so long
Look where we’d begun and where we started from
Please don’t be the one that got away

I’ll hold on to hope that I’m not missing out,
falling over you
I’m having to cope, ’cause I might be without
I don’t know what to do
’bout what we have become, so unsure
Could you tell me?
I hope it’s you that loves me

Could she be the one I’ve been waiting for?
She’s all that I’ve wanted for so long
Look where we’d begun and where we started from
Please don’t be the one that got away

Is this the start of something beautiful?
That she’d go for me is something that I can’t see

Could she be the one I’ve been waiting for?
She’s all that I’ve wanted for so long

She is the one that I’ve been waiting for
She’s all that I’ve wanted for so long
Look where we’d begun and just how far we’ve come
She won’t be the one that got away

She’s here to stay


All In

It’s funny how
you came back around
when I thought you’d gone away for good
In the here and now
I wanna shout it out
That I know I’m here to stay

Well I can’t speak for you
But I hope you are too

You are everything I’ve ever wanted
You are everything I’ve never had, and
I am trying not to jump the gun
But knowing that you are the one for me
I’m all in

You are all I want
You are all I need
That I never knew existed
I thank God
every day
‘Cause I know I could have missed it

I don’t know how you feel
but I hope that it’s real
But I can’t speak for you

You are everything I’ve ever wanted
You are everything I’ve never had, and
I am trying not to jump the gun
But I know that you are the one for me
And I’m praying that I’m all you need me to be
‘Cause I’m all in


Questions

I gave it all
I gave the very best of me
And you returned the favor
I did you right
Then seemingly overnight
You changed your mind forever

Questioning
Everything
Of what I knew
Of what could be
Questioning
What I believed
Of you and me
And who I am inside

Could I ever be loved?


Promise in the Pain

I don’t mind that I don’t matter
Because you don’t matter any more to me
I tell myself so I’ll feel better
But the fact of the whole matter is
I don’t feel that way at all

But I know there’s a promise in the pain
There is hope the sun will follow the rain
Although I always seem to find
that my heart cannot read my mind
I know, I know it’s true

It’s okay, I’ll be just fine
I’ll say it once, I’ll say it twice
so I just might believe
It’s okay, I’ll be just fine
‘Cause what’s to come will blow my mind
Yes, I believe it

‘Cause I know there’s a promise in the pain
There is hope the sun will follow the rain
Although I always seem to find
that my heart cannot read my mind
I know it’s true

I lay awake at night
A sight for sore eyes
Nervously biting my fingers
The feeling lingers
But this too will pass

‘Cause I know there’s a promise in the pain
There is hope the sun will follow the rain
Although I always seem to find
that my heart cannot read my mind
I know, I know
I know, I know it’s true

This too will pass


This is the Last Time

I fell so fast
Without a rhyme or a reason
This is the last time
I fell so hard
For the idea of a lover
This is the last time

Oooooooh

Just because you were the best I ever had
Doesn’t mean that you’re the best that I can get
This is the last time

Oooooooh

This is the last time

I’m right here waiting for you
and you’re waiting ’round for me too
So I won’t be looking for love
It’ll find me
You are out there


Love Anyway

The broken scars upon my heart
I won’t soon forget
And she will see them clear as day,
but I know
she will love me anyway
These faded lines are not just mine
She won’t soon forget
but I’ll let her know that it’s okay
’cause I know
I will love her anyway

It will be just an ordinary day
we’ll see an extraordinary twist of fate
I know that you’ll be worth the wait

All I am, what I have been
draws me to you
Even counting past mistakes,
still I know
you will love me anyway

For you I would go the extra mile
’cause you’ve been out here all the while
I can’t wait to see you smile

I’ll try my best to be the man you need
so you can see what you mean to me
You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours
You’ll be the one my heart beats for

The broken scars upon my heart
I won’t soon forget
You will see them just the same
But I know
you will love me anyway
