Crack of Light


Follow the moment that captures your senses & refuses to fade away.

Follow the moment that captures your senses & refuses to fade away.

Standing at the doorway in between the cracks of light in the dark of the night.
A life waits, wanting to move on.
There is so little light, but what little there is shines so brightly.
It’s hard to ignore the little things.
For every massive wave, there is a minor ripple that follows.
It occurs in the ocean, in light, in sound & even within our own humanity.
Follow the moment that captures your senses & refuses to fade away.
It will show you what to focus on.

Cover Me (Under The Spotlight)


Out of tune & way out of line.
Spread too thin to zero in.
Surrounded by a storm of doubt.
I am without a dream worth falling for.
I’m not gonna leave myself feeling bare for fear of losing myself to the uncertainty that comes with not knowing.

Will I be a smash hit or just a one hit wonder?
It’s hard enough to not give in.
Trying not to fold.
There’s more to me than I was ever told.
All I need is to start on the right note.
All the things I left behind, I’ve come to find are what made me strong.
Even whispers can drown out the noise you keep putting out.
Where is your passion & where is your dream?
I want to live like music.
Cover me endlessly.

Well I’m done taking back what I’ve done.
I’m not who you are & I won’t ever sound like you.
I’ve found my voice.
The way I move & touch others is something that I was blind to.
But they reached out to me & showed me love & what it’s all about.
I hope you know what it means to inspire & to have a dream worth protecting.
I’ve only begun to grasp what I let go of so long ago & I won’t let it go.
No, never, not ever again, for your sake & mine.
Another chance won’t come again.
I’m ready to be heard.
I’m ready to shine.
