about

'Scarlett' is dedicated in memory of my Grandma Dorris who was my musical inspiration and biggest cheerleader. While I was recording ‘Scarlett’, I would come and visit her weekly and tell her about the songs I was working on and she always encouraged me, even when I lost my voice and it felt like the album would never get finished! She was my rock, she was the reason I became a musician, and this album is a tribute to her. I love you Grandma.

Track Name: Tears
Nothing to give you but my love and my tears
Don’t know what to say you’ve been my rock all these years
You won’t live like this it’s not a life at all
Been hard to hear you not the same when I call

Why can’t I make you better?
Why can’t I make you okay?
Oh how I wish I could
Why can’t I make you better?
Why can’t I make you believe?
But I’m just not that naïve

And I’ve always been the one
Who smiles for you
But I didn’t come today
To bring you good news
My love is all I can offer you

Nothing to give you but a hand to hold you
Sing you to sleep the way that you’d always do
I’ll hold you tight and just let myself cry
Can’t bare to think how this could be our good-by

Why can’t I make you better?
Why can’t I make you okay?
Oh how I wish I could
Why can’t I make you better?
Why can’t I make you believe?
But I’m just not that naïve

And I’ve always been the one
Who smiles for you
But I didn’t come today
To bring you good news
My love is all I can offer you

Track Name: Back Off
Told you back then I’ll tell you again
That we will never be more than friends
Happy with him so you're not gonna win
Just back off its time you gave in

Really don’t want to make a big deal
You don’t care what I feel
I told you time and time again
Don’t come back you are no friend

Should have thought twice before acting so nice
Wish I had taken all their advice
They had warned me and now I can see
Why no one could stand you but me

Really don’t want to make a big deal
You don’t care what I feel
I told you time and time again
Don’t come back you are no friend

Saw me with him from the start
Tried to tear us apart
To think that you could just jump in
And surely win
When you knew I love him

Really don’t want to make a big deal
You don’t care what I feel
I told you time and time again
Don’t come back you are no friend

Track Name: Numb
I’m numb
I’m frozen
I’m deadened by your touch
Be careful
Little boy
You love me too much
You’re beautiful
You’re gullible
You’re fragile
As porcelain
And I’ve used you
And I’ve trapped you
In a game you’ll never win

You’re just a boy
Painting all day
You think if you keep working
Then you’ll be an artist one day
You think on top that sugar cube mountain
There will be sun and bright blue sky
Cuz beautiful boy you don’t know what it’s like
To wake and see it’s all a lie

Believe me boy I am not what I seam
Trust me I’m warning you steer clear of me
You’re gonna bleed it will hurt so bad
That you will understand me

Then you’ll be numb
Frozen
Deadened by my touch
Cuz little boy
That’s what happens
When you love someone too much

Track Name: Cobble Stone
I’m standing right on that street
I’m shaking I can’t feel my feet
Never thought I’d be here again
Not after what happened then

Probably you wouldn’t say hi
Probably you’d keep walking by
And after all, I know you’ve been through
How could I ever blame you

I know you get what you earn
But everyday how it burns
Knowing your gone there’s nothing to do
I’ve lost it all I’ve lost you

On my mind everyday
What good’s it do anyway?
You make your bed and you lay there right
can I just move on with my life

Start heading home in a daze
I shouldn’t have come back to this place
Wanted to see you there again
I know that this is the end
