You never thought I really cared Thought I was always unaware When you were right there by my side But you were always on my mind You were always on my mind You were always on my mind La da da... And now that time has taken you Away from me I clearly see That I should have told you every time That you were always on my mind You were always on my mind You were always on my mind La da da... Now, now that you have gone I couldn't lose another one I'll never find another one With the same old song Now, now that you have gone I couldn't lose another one I'll never find another one With the same old song La da da...

Stanley worked hard all of his life But before he died he turned to his wife and said: "Shirley, I'm retiring Shirley, I'm retiring" But Shirley said "Stan you're only 34, You've still got to work a little bit more Before retiring, baby keep dreaming" So Stanley waited Oh, Stanley waited But it turns out that Shirley wasn't right in the head Stanley was 73 and all but dead And he was retiring Stanley was retiring But Stan was a loving man and cared for his wife He waited on hand and foot the rest of his life His time spent retiring Naturally went to Shirley So Stanley waited Oh Stanley, Stanley's still waiting All for Shirley

Annie stay home No one needs to know Why you stay at home While they paint the town But you know, you know They're worse off without you You know, you know They're worse off without you Annie stay home There's no need to go Your cookies are warm And your mother is cold Plus you know, you know They're worse off without you You know, you know They're worse off without you Annie stay home There's no need to go Annie stay home There's no place like home You know, you know, you know

Well the business man is on his way To meet a lovely dinner date It's such a shame she's not his wife But he loves to lead a life Of perfectly placed lies So he punches out and then check in To the nearest local inn But first he's got to clear his tracks And get the lady off his back And this is what he has to say: "Gwen I swear I'm on my way The boss has got me working late I know it's past eight, but you're gonna have to wait Til my work is done, you know it's not fun To have to bring home the bread Don't wait up, you know I'm gonna work the clock" And so the very next night The businessman has got the mind To push his marriage to the line What he tell Gwen this time? I guess we'll have to wait and see "Gwen I swear I'm working late I know I said that yesterday But this boss of mine has done it and lost her mind" But Gwen says "Don't worry dear, You know that junior is here To keep me company Don't worry, you know we need the money" Junior's drawing pictures of a happy family But there's only two stick figures when there should be three

Sometimes I think I think too much And nothing ever goes my way But then I think about the times When everything is right as rain Everything is right as rain When you are here and not away So come on home and stay with me And stop the thinking in my brain Sometimes I know I think too much And things get harder everyday But then you show up like the sun And everything just fades away Everything is right as rain When you are here and not away So come on home and stay with me And stop the thinking in my brain Everything is right as rain When you are here and not away So come on home and stay with me And stop the thinking in my brain I can never feel the pain When you are lying next to me So come on home and we'll be free I'll think of you, you'll think of me I'll think of you, you'll think of me

There ain't nothin' I can say There ain't nothin' I can do It's just gonna get further away from you And you're runnin' here and there But never going anywhere It's time you start doing the things you say cause... In this lifetime You just might find You're not where you wanted to be When you were young and full of dreams There's nothin' I can say or do To take the times away from you Though times are hard the times will always change and... In this lifetime You just might find You're not where you wanted to be When you were young and full of dreams No you can't start giving up Oh no you can't just give it up Cause there's no point to giving up So why don't you just try your luck? Cause... In this lifetime You just might find You're right where you wanted to be When you were young and full of dreams

I've been staying up I've been sleeping in I've been waking up To what I can't live up I've been dreaming far too long I am on my own I've been dreaming far too long I am on my own I've been breaking down I've been breaking down No sign of letting up No message from above I've been dreaming far too long I am on my own I've been dreaming far too long I am on my own I am on my own I am on my own I am on my own I am on my own

My mama told me all about it The words she said, the way she said it I knew it had to be important But I didn't wanna hear about it Do you remember Alexander? Do you remember baseball cards? You're never coming back to me You're never coming back to me You're never coming back to me You're never coming back to me My mama told me all about it My mama told me all about it Those words she said, I never doubted But I didn't wanna hear about it Do you remember Alexander? Do you remember basketball? (Always) You're never coming back to me You're never coming back to me You're never coming back to me But I'll always keep your memory

Something like a dream Sleeps inside of me Don't know what it is Must've lost the key It goes, so long It's gone Nothing's going my way so I'm outta here Nothing's coming along so I'll disappear I'll go, so long I'm gone I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone Cause I've been lucky enough alright Yeah I've been lucky enough in life Yeah I've been lucky enough alright Cause I've been lucky enough in my life My life Nothing's coming along so I'll disappear Nothing's going my way so I'm outta here I'll go, so long I'm gone I'm gone I'm gone I'm gone

about

What to say about my little record?

It’s my baby, my life’s work really. It’s what I would have made if someone said “this is the last record you’ll ever make” (which is how one should treat every record really). I’m proud to say that it’s my best work, and it’s a little surreal that it will be out in the world soon after hiding away in my brain, soul, and hard drive for so long.

I made this record for people that like to listen to records. That almost sounds like a dumb thing to say, but with the rise of streaming services and singles being so popular today I think there are maybe fewer people listening to complete albums, which is a shame. I’ve always thought of a good album as a little adventure that begins when you drop the needle down before the first song, and isn’t over until you hear the crackle at the end of side B. I can always count on my favorite artists to deliver quality records, and this album is just me trying to do the same.

I’ve also struggled a lot with depression throughout the years, but have been able to make it through some very low times in my life thanks to my old pal music. Music has always been there for me. I know I’ve been able to make it through the toughest times of my life with the help of my favorite records, and maybe this one can do the same for someone else someday.
