You're Still My Every Breath is something I've made over the last 8 months or so. It's a collection of songs that focus on what it's like to get back into appreciating the small things in life, the ebb and flow that makes living beautiful. With this, I want to show you that even after all of the unfathomable setbacks we all experience, we can still learn from them and can push forward.

As always, the songs aren't one dimensional, and there are plenty of different styles for everyone to enjoy. They were recorded at three different studio environments (including the Peabody Institute in Baltimore, Jungle City Studios in Manhattan, and my basement) which definitely shows in the production.
At times, the subject matter is very heavy, as in "After all of this," while becoming light-hearted in tunes such as "More than a Friend," and "Summer's End Groove." Overall, I think the album has an uplifting tone it it. If you want to know anything specific about why I write what I write, e-mail me at

Track Name: More than a Friend
I'm gunna help you shine, no matter what it takes,
and you're gunna help me shine, oh no matter what it takes.
I've been waiting in the west end just about all night.
So if you meet me in the middle, we'll call that a compromise.

We're still dancing away,
you know me more than a friend,
you'll know what to say.
I think I'm needing you always,
you're the best friend of mine.

You're gunna take what's mine, if that's what you need.
I'm gunna take what's yours because, it's what I need.
And it's not easy to let go, but I can if you show me.
Sometimes a friendly soul can help you grow without even knowing.

We're still dancing away,
you know me more than a friend,
you'll know what to say.
More than, more than a friend.
You're more than, more than, more than a friend.
More than, more than a friend you are to me.

If I'm lonely, I remember what you made so very clear in my mind.
You said that you'll be less lonely if you take the time, to give back what you earned.

We're still dancing away,
you know me more than a friend,
you'll know what to say.
More than, more than a friend.
You're more than, more than, more than a friend.
More than, more than a friend you are to me.

The only thing I'm sure of is that I'm needing you always.
Track Name: Resistance
la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lax4

If you, you're fighting on some dream,
it's true, you'll give up anything.
I, I cannot understand it,
it's why I have to break the news to you.
Woah-oh-oh-oh

'cause I have resistance,
and you've got long distance.
We have nothing that we need.

But we've got, we've got our dying love.
It's not, it's not undying love.
Isn't it a shame?
No one is to blame.
Well,
we've got, we've got our dying love.

You'll wake, wake up where you want to,
and you'll say
"thank god I followed you."
Find, find what you wanna say,
everyone's got to go and I'm for sure.
(You really oughtta know)
That I have resistance,
and you've got long distance, well
I have all I'll ever need.

But we've got, we've got our dying love.
It's not, it's not undying love.
Isn't it a shame?
No one is to blame.
Well,
we've got, we've got our dying love.

Woah-oh-oh-oh (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) x4
Track Name: Zombieland
I've been dreaming so…Strangely,
a stranger in my bed.
I'm a zombie eating my own brains,
a little each day.
All the while you watch me waste away,
I think you can….

Bring me back to life,
bring me back to life.
Bring me back to life,
bring me back to life.

Let's take to the streets,
falling down the narrow roads.
Drive a silver bullet in my heart,
to squeeze out the cold.
If this is a game, let me lose,
I know you care…


ooooo

You bring me back to life,
bring me back to life.
Bring me back to life,
bring me back to life.
Track Name: Tennis Shoes
If you say I'm gone,
well maybe there's some truth to that.
So stay away
or else you'll get the feeling back
you thought you once lost, when you got rid of me.

Those tennis shoes you'll never ever wear again,
will fade away into eternal evidence,
of where you once walked,
but now never dare to go.

Woah oh
Woah oh
Woah oh oh oh oh
And it keeps me right where I'm supposed to be,
right where I'm supposed to be when I say....

I won't say that I
fully escaped my life of living
in my mind,
I know we all get stuck some times.
Let's take this and
walk on into the blinding sun.

It burns like hell, but
I'm damned if I don't give a damn,
it hurts and well...
here's for sticking to the plan.
We carried it out and now we're gunna make it through

Woah oh
Woah oh
Woah oh oh oh oh x2
Track Name: youmakeme
You make me feel like the most attractive man in the room.
You make me feel like what I'm working towards will pay off soon.
You make me feel the heat of sun and the cool of shade.
Not always safe, but always unafraid.

And I can't thank you enough for that.
I can't thank you enough for that.
Thank you enough for that.
Thank you enough…

'Cause you make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me feel like I'm not the only one in the world.
Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh-oh

You stand up straight, while I, oh I tend to slouch.
You ripped my body straight from this lonely, velcro couch.
You make me feel the heat of sun and the cool of shade.
Not always safe, but always unafraid.

And I can't thank you enough for that.
I can't thank you enough for that.
Thank you enough for that.
Thank you enough…

'Cause you make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me feel like I'm not the only one in the world.

You make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me feel like I'm not the only one in the….

ba-bum-ba-da-bum x8

Oh you make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me,
you make me feel like I'm not the only one in the world.
Track Name: After all of this
That time was a true test of fate.
Harbored every word I poured with no mistake.
I said it to you clear and concise,
and it even brought a tear to my own eyes...

Outside there's a distant ray of sun,
that shines on your face and then,
everything's so good.
If only I could keep it shining day and night,
then I would...

I was off saying something stupid to the world,
as if it purposely destroyed my deepest dreams.
Well I'm learning that it's my own destiny,
I can plot a course to fail or succeed.

So I'm sorry if can't let this go,
we're to young to say it's impossible.
But now's the time to throw our boxes away.
Who want's to live in a box anyway?

Outside there's a distant ray of sun,
that shines on your face and then,
everything's so good.
If only I could keep it shining day and night,
then I would....

So I need to know if I'm alone in this,
to say I'm not the only one who feels it.
It's been broken, misplaced, and beat to death.
Yet after all of this you're still my every breath.

Outside there's a distant ray of sun,
that shines on my face and then,
everything's so good.
if only you could keep it shining day and night,
I hope you would....
I hope you would....
I hope you would....
I hope you would.
Track Name: Summer's End Groove
I fell into you at the summer's end groove,
we were pumping up the tunes,
and we were always in the nude.

But now I notice that,
the times you walk like that,
you're turning up my thermostat,
you're giving me a heart attack.

I was downstairs with the light on making big plans,
you were up the road just away from me,
I never knew, never knew until,
you looked me in the eye as I walked outside,
getting in my car, "let's go for a ride."
As you reach for the gas both our lips collide.

I fell into you at the summer's end groove,
we were pumping up the tunes,
and we were always in the nude.

As we walked into the sunset,
you made me feel, feel like I'm coming home,
as we walked into the sunset,
you made me feel, feel like I'm home.
