Young

I'm going to tell my future daughter, and my future son
That time is on the run so don't chase it, don't chase it
Enjoy your crushes and learn from
Your crashes, you don't need to rush this

You should know what I know now
If only I knew what I know now

When you're young
You think you're right even when you're wrong
You fall in love with love songs
And sad songs
Sometimes I really miss the way it hurt
When "More Than Words" would play
My heart would break for days
I miss the way it was
Back when we were young

I wanna be a great grandfather
And see my daughter's daughters grow up
And learn the world keeps on turning
But all that's uncertain will always work out in the end

When you're young
You think you're right even when you're wrong
You fall in love with love songs
And sad songs
Sometimes I really miss the way it hurt
When "More Than Words" would play
My heart would break for days
I miss the way it was
Back when we were young
Back when we were young
Back when we were young
Back when we were young

I still get shaken up every time that I drive by her street
I wanted you bad, but looking that far back makes me think

When you're young
You think you're right even when you're wrong
You fall in love with love songs
And sad songs
Sometimes I really miss the way it hurt
When "More Than Words" would play
My heart would break for days
I miss the way it was
Back when we were young
Back when we were young
Back when we were young
Back when we were young

Back when we were young

Seven Wonders

I'm well traveled with you,
We've got Paris' July 1st
Fireworks.
I'm lucky with you.
If we're in Vegas you bet I'm callin,
All in.

You take this world and you make it smaller for me.

I've seen the Great Lakes in Minnesota
The red rocks in Arizona
The mountain tops of Switzerland
Castles out in Ireland
The Wild West desperado
Snow glow in Colorado
Walking in the Memphis blues
Ocean breeze in Malibu
There's heaven on earth
Seven wonders
And you.

And I fall as hard as the
Furious falls of Niagara
Over and over again
I hang on to every word you say to me
I keep it safe in my heart
And like History
It never leaves.

I've seen the Great Lakes in Minnesota
The red rocks in Arizona
The mountain tops of Switzerland
Castles out in Ireland
The Wild West desperado
Snow glow in Colorado
Walking in the Memphis blues
Ocean breeze in Malibu
There's heaven on earth
Seven wonders
And you.

The world in all its beauty
It don't mean nothing to me
Girl I would rather be with you
Girl I would rather be with you
Every picture, every story
It just don't do it for me
Girl I would rather be with you
Girl I would rather be with you

I've seen the Great Lakes in Minnesota
The red rocks in Arizona
The mountain tops of Switzerland
Castles out in Ireland
The Wild West desperado
Snow glow in Colorado
Walking in the Memphis blues
Ocean breeze in Malibu
There's heaven on earth
Seven wonders
And you.

Pretty Good

Don’t got money
But I got bills
Don’t got a honey
Or a house in the hills

I’m no good at
Almost anything
But If theres one way
I got skills

I'm Pretty good at a good time
Pretty good at doing this all night
I know its been a hell of a week
so Have another drink on me.
Here’s to the good life
Everything's gunna be alright
Tomorrow ain't a guarantee,
So here's to the memories.
I'm pretty good at a
good good good good time
Pretty Good at a
Good good good good time

Got no vacation
And I hate my job
All My relationships
We called them off.

When California
ain't as sunny as it seems.
Well there’s one thing
One thing I got

I'm Pretty good at a good time
Pretty good at doin this all night
I know its been a hell of a week
So have another drink on me
Here’s to the good life
Everything is gunna be alright
Tomorrow ain’t a guarantee
So here’s to the memories
Im pretty good at a
Good good good good time
Pretty good at a
Good good good good time

Everything
Everything that we need is right here
Everything
Everything that we need
Im pretty good at a good time
Pretty good at doin this all night
All night

Im Pretty good at a good time
Pretty good at doin this all night
I know its been a hell of a week
So have another drink on me
Here’s to the good life
Everything is gunna be alright
Tomorrow ain’t a guarantee
So here’s to the memories
Im pretty good at a
Good good good good time
Good good good good time
Good good good good time
Good good good good time

Me You

Square one
The starting line
Funny I
Never Thought
I'd be here
Five years later

Once
Upon a time
I could dive
Head first like
It was second nature

I know you look at me
Wondering if I’m here
Or if Im somewhere else
Or Maybe I’m just someone else

I know I don’t make it easy,
I’m so afraid of falling deeply
Her ghost is close to giving into you
I wouldn’t change a thing
Cause I wouldn’t know your name
It took time
I don’t mind
Its what i had to do
It brought me you

These walls
They got a new coat a paint
But they saw everything
Every rise and fall
It’ll always be a part of me
It's easier to leave
but i don’t want to go

I know you look at me
Wondering if I’m here
Or if Im somewhere else
I’m working on myself

All that this cost
All that I lost

Im thanking god
For all I’ve lost
All I've been through
Cuz it brought me
And Im thanking God
For all it Cost
i bet he Knew
It brought me you

Nervous

Quarter till nine when this whole bar went quiet
and I spun around and I found out the reason why
her eyes were a shade of green
make a grown man slow down and think
I was leavin in the morning but maybe ill change my flight

drinking at the bar and no one knows me
and you started singing karaoke
trying to play it cool and then you froze me
i can’t believe

You got everybody in this place
Singing party in the USA
I might not ever get a chance to say
you are you are
perfect
I know that its now or never
or were never gunna be together
gunna need some courage
girl you make me nervous

3 years later there’s 7 more minutes to go
until the church doors open and I’m watching that white dress glow
my heart it starts beating fast
waiting for this moment just takes me back

when I saw those eyes
and I changed my flight
to the day that changed my life

You got everybody in this place
Singing party in the USA
I might not ever get a chance to say
you are you are
perfect
I know that its now or never
or were never gunna be together
gunna need some courage
girl you make me nervous

If you told me no it would have hurt less
than to know i had a chance and missed it
so i gave it a couple minutes
if i didn’t do it i was leaving

my time was up and then you walked by
and I got caught up in those green eyes
I saw that look that you were giving
you gave me everything needed

You had everybody in that place
Singing party in the USA
might not ever get the chance to say
you are you are
perfect
now I know that its now or never
or we were never gunna be together
glad I got the courage
you still make me Nervous
you still make me nervous
You Still make me Nervous

College Town

It was food girls and football games
Lookin good and stayin out late
Life was smooth, sweet, just right

In our college town it was simple as just
throwing rocks at the trains drinking beers on our trucks,
it was never too serious.

No responsibilities at the University
something about that life sounds good to me.

We were livin life on loud, and nobody turned us down.
We were raised up by the crowd, making our hometown proud.
Those Glory days, we had it made on holy campus ground,
So take me back to my College Town.

Wake up late the parties here,
Drinking games and breakfast beers,
Been wearin those damn jeans for 3 days straight.

We made bonfires late at night,
Kissin girls and Pickin fights,
Wonder where the hell we’ll 10 years from now?

No responsibilities,
at the University,
something about this life sounds good to me.

We were living life on loud, and nobody turned us down.
We were raised up by the crowd making our hometown proud.
Those Glory days, we had it made on holy campus ground
Years like that go by so fast
But man they make me proud
So take me back to my college town

Tailgates and painted faces
Good people going crazy
I can hear that game day crowd.
About New Album

It’s here!! This EP is called “Past Tense.” It is who I am, from every young love and break up, to every grown up mistake. It is the best thing I could have done for myself in this time in my life. Pure therapy for me, and over the past seven months I have gotten the opportunity to share it with you. I have so many people to thank for this entire EP. It has taken a village of people coming in and out of my life over the years to make these tunes. This is called “Past Tense” not because I am forgetting, regretting, or staying in the past. it is more recognizing that even though my past is behind me, it is still a part of me.
