about

These are a collection of songs that i have written from 2008 to 2014. They are a mix of songs that relate to my times of growing out of teenage-ness and into my life in Cambodia serving as a missionary. Music has always been something God would use to speak to me and to comfort and encourage me. I now am committed to recording songs in Cambodia which can also give hope and healing to the people of Cambodia.

I am so blessed to produce these songs in my own home with equipment that God provided me through quite a number for you who may be reading this. Let this be a blessing back to you.

I dedicate this album to the Creator who lets us create things with Him. I also want to honor my family and friends who inspired this record and have been there for me along the journey. And may it be for many footsteps more that we share with each other.

Track Name: Sheet Metal
he's been drifting away
to his homeland
where the waves roll and toss
Like his sister's kitten with yarn

History is recorded
everyday
will it make a difference
in the end anyway

The headlines are flashing and flickering
telling us to run for our lives
the clock is flashing and flickering
telling us it's time

The pressure it will come and the pressure it will go
The wanderers will sigh as they wander to and fro
Knowledge shall be known, and there's knowledge no one knows
We're not known by what we boast but by the love we show

And he's been fading away
from his Lover
Who is steadfast and strong
like the currents in the bottom of the sea

and he's been asking a question
many days now
if he's sure and confident
in himself

The headlines are flashing and flickering
telling us to run for our lives
the clock is flashing and flickering
telling us it's time it's time

These blessings are not from mine, but the One who makes us whole
we'll lift our hands up high, as we let our praises roll
we've chosen to be alive, so lets not lose our soul
i'm burning up inside, and that's what fuels the grow

We ain't gonna run to the past long gone
we're gonna turn our eyes to the breaking of the dawn

We're gonna set our faith in the Risen Son

Run to the Son
Track Name: Remembrance
I'm on my way to the other side
He called my name
I cannot ignore their cries

I'm torn I'm torn
What is this soul inside of me
restore restore
this well of life inside of me, this well of life i try to be

How could it be, that the person You chose
Really could be me
Grant me the strength to go

I'm torn I'm torn
What is this soul inside of me, what is this soul inside of me
restore restore
this well of life inside of me, this well of life i try to be

Remember, Remember
You're here for a reason
Remember, Together
We can do this

When i'm torn, when i'm torn
He heals this soul inside of me (We can do this together)
Restore restore
He restores, He restores

Don't give up
Don't give up now
Don't give up
We've made it now
Track Name: Barracuda
Dive into the river where everyone can feel
Climb into the river where our hearts are sealed
In time we will find, that air supply isn't all to life

Breathe easy fear has now been abandoned
Bright morning in your eyes

Like oceans waving from opposite sides
Or two colliding stars in parallel skies
Trains ride the tracks which are homeward bound
Yeah you'll see, thoughts all around
thoughts all around

Stare into the mirror with nothing soft to say
Barracuda hungry, time he eats away
Times wastes away from every day to day
Then they'll say

Breathe easy fear has now been abandoned
Bright morning in your eyes

Like oceans waving from opposite sides
Or two colliding stars in parallel skies
Trains ride the tracks which are homeward bound
Yeah you'll see, thoughts all around
Thoughts all around

The sky you see is the mystery
The ever-clear of inconsistensy

Infinity of melody
You'll see

Them oceans waving from opposite sides
Or two colliding stars in parallel skies
Trains ride the tracks which are homeward bound
Yeah you'll see, thoughts all around
Thoughts all around
Thoughts all round
Thoughts all around
Thoughts all around

Turn your eyes bravely
To the setting sun
Track Name: The Forward March
Daylight.
First thing i pray and ask for strength
I am not alone
I'm who he's made me to be

Open door, i follow through and keep the pace
Fighting to be true i am fighting all the fear in me

You gave Your life for me
You can take everything

My friend i'll call you by name
Jesus my Savior still
When they came to drag me down
You said 'You've gotta go through Me"
Behind these shadows Your light is caving in
You said you've gotta go through me

I am a fighter I am a soldier
Declaring victory
I wear this armor with confidence
knowing my strength is in You

You gave Your life for me
You can take everything

My friend i'll call you by name
Jesus my Savior still
When they came to drag me down
You said 'You've gotta go through Me"
Behind these shadows Your light is caving in
You said you've gotta go through me

The waves crash The silence stings
But i will over come
The smoke fills my oxygen
But i will overcome

You are the Way the Truth and the Life
Track Name: Hawk Eyes
Hawk eyes high in the skies
Watch the waves and winds on distant foreign shores
High above the sea shrouded in the mystery of misty truth and grace

Steer me home
Compass rose

I know there's a way
Into the light and through the narrow gate ahead
His name is the key to this reality
And i've been pressing on since i was young

Steer me home
Compass rose

We've set out from shore now
We're searching for home (Still)

You are Love
I am Yours
Here we go

Into the world
To love the world
To tell the world

You can drop this anchor
Cause we've made it home

Yeah

(*Dock jumping*)
