About Me

Just a music lover with beginner guitar skills and a passion for lyrics. I've written poetry since I was a kid, and have written extensive works of non-fiction, but have always been captivated by song lyrics. My favorite artists have always been singer-songwriters - Bob Dylan, John Prine, Jim Croce, etc. A few months ago, I was going through a difficult time and I decided to "vent" by writing a song. The lyrics and melody seemed to just drop out of the sky. I shared the song with a musician friend who is working on his second CD and - to my surprise - he asked if he could cover it and put it on his record! Since then, I've written 9 more songs. I'm excited to learn about the art of songcraft, and to hone my skills with the creative folks here at hookist.

My Lyrics

Written for:

  • Marti Dodson
Every day we're livin' is a gift we're given
Every day we're given/makes this life worth livin'
Take my hand, walk with me/while the clock keeps ticking
For you I've been waiting/no more hesitating
Let the storm clouds scatter, I have found what matters
They say "Time is money," so let's spend it wisely

Let's race toward tomorrow, like each day is borrowed
Every heartbeat reminds me/there's a lifetime behind me/And my view of tomorrow's obscured by the smoke/from all of the bridges I've burned.
Every heartbeat reminds me/that a lifetime's behind me./Time to focus instead on the one that's ahead/and turn my perspective around.
Every heartbeat reminds me/there's a strong wind behind me/and I've learned that tomorrow is out of my reach/but I can take hold of today.
Every heartbeat reminds me/how fast time gets behind me/but I'd trade my tomorrows for just one more chance/to sit on the front porch with you.
Every heartbeat reminds me/how these fires have refined me/I'll be stronger tomorrow because today's sorrow/has taught me to treasure these times.
Every heartbeat reminds me/to stop looking behind me/I will reach toward tomorrow with a hope that's not borrowed/I'm drawing a line in this sand.
Every heartbeat reminds me/how my childhood defines me/but whether tomorrow holds joy or brings sorrow/comes down to the choices I make.
Every heartbeat reminds me/that one day you will find me/looking down from above on the ones that I love/but today they are here by my side.
Every heartbeat reminds me/like a drumbeat behind me/that life's cadence is steady, and I'm finally ready/to get back in step and walk on.
Every heartbeat reminds me/of the One sent to guide me/through all the tomorrows He allows me to borrow/all he asks for is all my todays.
Of the minutes behind me/But since time can't be borrowed, I'll purchase tomorrow/I'm not looking back anymore
Every heartbeat reminds me
Smile while you still have teeth :)
No more empty tomorrows, cause life is short.
Let each heartbeat remind me, that life is short.
Opportunity's endless, but life is short.
Be the change that I long for, cause life is short.
Fairy tales last forever
Love like there's no tomorrow
How I long for tomorrow
Love like there's no tomorrow
Make the most of these moments
Sing me a love song/but please don't take too long/
