Bree is a spirited and standout font that takes its inspiration from handwriting. It’s sure to grab your reader’s attention, especially in short paragraphs.

These songs were produced, mixed, and mastered by the songwriter in a simple home studio. Your votes and comments tell us which tracks we may someday take to a real studio.

The melodies, lyrics, and arrangements may be simple by todays top 40 standards, but what is a one man band to do with so many song ideas. It's gonna be said and got be sung. 50 more songs and another one done.

Venus and Mars EP

If this album were to be reviewed by a significant music critic they would likely use a colorful vocabulary to explain the music and ideas are stuck in the past. To that we would heartily agree.

By todays standards, these songs proudly contain simple lyrics and are delivered in an out of date folk genre which is dependent mostly on traditional instruments.

 

And while opposites may attract, our post modern culture defines love as a fleeting thing that is found and lost and then found; only to be lost again. The message of these songs are fundamental to a love that struggles, but by its very definition it is something that survives.

Venus & Mars Collide

A happy little garden
frames our homey house

my handy repairs
make her happy as a mouse

her closet full of clothing
from a shopping spree

my few shirts and jeans
show the simple in me

 

Venus is so dreary
when the clouds abound 

we talk and then you cook
you crawl into a book 

Mars patches the roof
when the rains fall down 

washes the dirt clean
breaks up our routine 

 

when we disagree
we both understand 

and our love lives on
because it can

 

we treasure the photo
framed upon the wall

the family we hold dear
thankful for it all

we share a cup of coffee
when the day begins

You're talking circles now

while I bring groceries in

 

Venus is so dreary
when the clouds abound

we talk and then you cook
you crawl into a book

Mars patches the roof
when the rains fall down 

washes the dirt clean
breaks up our routine 

 

when we disagree
we both understand 

and our love lives on

because it can

 

we were far apart
and grew so very near

I know what you’re thinking
before I hear

you throw me reminders
to keep what came to be

amazing things can happen
when Venus and Mars collide

You Own Me

I am not your sheep now honey

but for you I would leap like a frog

and when you call me baby

I will be at your feet before too long

 

woman, you own the better part of me

you make me never want to break free

 

I am not your servant honey

but for you, table set for a queen

just try and test me baby

red carpet, you are royalty

 

woman, I gave you this and everything

my words find you, and then I just got to sing

 

you run to me the same

our love not fade away

One Star, Your Star

strolling at night along the seashore

far from the city, light the new moon

the sky cleared up and I pointed to a star

one large bright diamond made for you

 

there is one star
belongs in the southern sky

I would say yours for sure

it will shine brighter
right there next to mine

to remember the way we were

 

sliding at night across the ice pond

our breath in motion, still winter air

we fell back into the snow and looked up

staring at the endless wonder there

 

there is one star
belongs in the southern sky

I would say yours for sure

it will shine brighter
right there next to mine

to remember the way we were

You Girl, My Girl Too

it is the way that you are

standing on your own
choosing me to make your life complete

making the most
of each and every day, you girl

forgiving me when something stupid I say
hey, my girl too

 

it is the way that we are

standing side by side
choosing us to make our life complete

making the most
of each and every day, you girl

forgiving you when you get carried away
hey, my girl too

 

it is the way that I am

standing on my own
choosing you to make my life complete

making the most
of each and every day, you girl

forgiving you when you get carried away
hey, my girl too

Mad

you threw that look was so cold
wondered where it all would go

I offered my apology
there was more to this than we could see

you traded for silent smirk
said that's alright, I'm okay

never said what was on your mind

turned and walked away

 

Don't let the sun go down
when you're mad

Don't let the sun go down
when you're mad

now you wanna think about it
call truce and never talk it out

feel more like a refuge
and bury that anger deep inside

you should take a shoulder cry
say that's alright, your okay

never try to reconcile
cook slow then dynamite

Don't let the sun go down
when you're mad

Don't let the sun go down
when you're mad

 

and you were only 30 years tall

when you'll hit a rock rock rock wall

don't wanna land a ten story fall

heart stop get the game over call

now you gonna bite on your own tongue

then you'll be the hurt hurt hurt one

anger is a surefire kill pill

hurts more than forgiving ever will

Don't let the sun go down
when you're mad

Don't let the sun go down
when you're mad

Mission Of The Heart

you lit up my night
you stole the show

we never lost sight
of what made us go

 

the odds stacked against our plan
love carried us we ran

we were here from the start

and while others burned
our scars are well earned

mission of the heart

 

could we ever know
beyond the fight

no greater gift won
is our love for life

 

and what will our future hold
could anyone know

me and you from the start

a winding mountain road
needy ones in tow

mission of the heart

you lit up my night
you stole the show

we never lost sight
of what made us go

Pack A Bag

we sailed down the long seashore
and landed on a bay of sand

little diamonds on the blue
and a thousand starfish
larger than, our two hands

seashells under a pillowed sky
you said time to get home soon

the sun began to fall
and we found our way back home
under the moon

 

why did we leave, why did we did go
we never return

why did we leave, why did we did go
it's time we return

pack a bag and let's go my friend
find our way today

pack a bag and let's go my friend
this time we stay

 

we shared that time of happiness
as the breeze carried us along

to that land that time forgot
and then we shouted out loud
our getaway song

did not see a soul all day
under currents we followed down

a warm blanket was the sea
we wished that we could stay

and never drown

 

why did we leave, why did we did go
we never return

why did we leave, why did we did go
it's time we return

pack a bag and let's go my friend
find our way today

pack a bag and let's go my friend
this time we stay
