My wedding gift to you! I wish you and Brandon love and happiness always.

Karissa

Hard to explain what you’re looking for
maybe somebody like your Dad
someone who’ll provide for you
the things you never had
someone you can go to
in the middle of the night
to hold you…stop your shaking
tell you it’s gonna be alright
Karissa you’re coming home

Hard to put your finger on
what being alone can do
to a heart that needs a home
and doesn’t have a clue
how it’s supposed to carry on
in an empty bed
no one there to share the dreams
stuck inside your head
Karissa you’re coming home

If you see her say hello
you’ll notice that big smile
like finding your favorite song
on both ends of the dial
Karissa you’re coming home

Wedding days..black and white
that sums it up real good
all the grey swept away
’till the naked eye can’t tell
that a match made in heaven
has got anything on this
one simple promise
sealed with a kis
Karissa you’re coming home

If you see her say hello
you’ll notice that big smile
like finding your favorite song
on both ends of the dial
Karissa you’re coming home
Karissa you’re coming home

When the Circus Comes to Town

June 23, 2013 1 comment

New song written at the kitchen table.

When the Circus Comes to Town

The canvas will all be packed
the carny’s and the con
gone to find another town
to pull one over on
home might be a state of mind
but a man still needs a bed
to share a little human tough
and the dreams left in his head

So I’m leaving what I used to be
and all the things I know
the sins and sinners standing still
to put on one more show
maybe she got the best of me
and the rest of me can’t tell
but what if it remembers
and doesn’t take it well?

But that’s just nerves talking
coming up from the ground
ready to take over when
the circus comes to town

So yea I made some mistakes
did some hurting too
I sure done a lot of things
that I wasn’t supposed to do
But still when I make up my mind
no one can turn me ’round
from scratching out a brand new home
