Better Together

Length: 3:27

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

There’s no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a shoe box of photographs
With sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer, at least for most of the questions in my heart
Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together
Mmm, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, we’ll look at the stars when we’re together
Well, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together

Banana Pancakes

Length: 3:11

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

You hardly even notice when I try to show you this song it’s meant to keep you from
Doing what your supposed to.
Like waking up too early, maybe we could sleep in,
Make your banana pancakes, pretend like it’s the weekend now.
And we could pretend it all the time.
Can’t you see that it’s just raining?
There ain’t no need to go outside.
But just maybe, like a ukulele, mama made a baby.
Really don’t mind to practice, ’cause you’re my little ladie.
Ladie, ladie love me, ’cause I love to lay here lazy.
We could close the curtains, pretend like there’s no world outside.
And we could pretend it all the time, yeah.
Cant you see that it’s just raining?
There ain’t no need to go outside.
Ain’t no need, ain’t no need


Upside Down

Length: 3:29

Release: 2009

Opening Lyrics:

Who’s to say what’s impossible
Well, they forgot this world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything
And as the surface breaks, reflections fade
But in some ways, they remain the same
And as my mind begins to spread its wings
There’s no stopping curiosity
I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I’ll find the things they say just can’t be found
I’ll share this love I find with everyone
We’ll sing and dance to Mother Nature’s songs
I don’t want this feeling to go away
Who’s to say I can’t do everything
Well, I can try
And as I roll along, I begin to find

Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Length: 3:03

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

Well I was sitting, waiting, wishing
You believed in superstitions
Then maybe you’d see the signs
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
And I ain’t the Lord, no I’m just a fool
Learning loving somebody don’t make them love you
Must I always be waiting, waiting on you?
Must I always be playing, playing your fool?
I sang your songs, I danced your dance
I gave your friends all a chance
Putting up with them wasn’t worth never having you
Ah, maybe you’ve been through this before
But it’s my first time, so please ignore
The next few lines ’cause they’re directed at you
I can’t always be waiting, waiting on you
I can’t always be playing, playing your fool

I Got You

Length: 2:05

Release: 2013

Opening Lyrics:

Back when all my little goals seemed so important
Every pot of gold fill and full of distortion
Heaven was a place still in space not in motion
But soon
I Got You
I got everything
I Got You
I don’t need nothing more than you
I got everything
I Got You
We went walking through the hills
Tryin’ to pretend that we both know
Maybe if we save up
We can build a little home
But then the hail storm came and yelled
“You need to let go, you’ve got no control”
I Got You
I got everything
