about

Now I want to Change is a collection of songs I made during the past three years of my life, a time that was very chaotic for me and full of life-changing events. While some of it may seem dark, it is actually about the journey I took to overcome the depression, anxiety, self-doubt and irrational hopelessness that had consumed too much of my life.

Track Name: All My Wants
I know a place where God is great.
I’ll take you there, one day, you just wait.
And I know a room, couldn’t come too soon.
Now it’s just a shining bloom

And I know a space that makes no sound.
Water drips but no drops found.
Water drips but no drops found.
Water drips but no drops found.

Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip,
Drop, Drop, Drop Drop
Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip,
Drop

And all I want is to be free
But all I get is the worst of me
And all my wants they’re trickery
Cause all I need is here with me

I know a place, where God comes late.
The miracle store, it closes at 8.
And I know a street where the people sleep
They can dream but they don’t see

And I know a place where God can save
But only if you just let go
Yeah only if you just let go
All you do is just let go

All I want is to be free
But all I get is the worst of me
And all my wants they’re trickery
Cause all I need is here with me
Track Name: Now I Want to Change
It went up like a forest fire
One little spark then the rest ignited
People gathered in the streets that night
Fists held up, raised toward the sky

Settling into silence
Giving in to hope
Risking only sadness
Risking all I know

My dream is to be a traveler
With ties only to the earth
And now I want to change
And now I want to stand

Now I want to change
Now I want to stand
Track Name: Calm Down to Me
We built a rainbow with water and sun
With waves we made an ocean
With sound we made the waves
But if all we are is matter, then what’s it really matter.

Calm down to me

We built a notion with words and trust
With lies, we built devotion
In eyes that looked so young
But if all we are is matter, then what’s it really matter.

Calm down to me
Track Name: Marco Marko
Marco, Marko

Life, just gives ya what you see, a cry, a symphony. You take it where you want to be.
I, I got right back on my feet. I traveled from underneath to get to where you’re gonna be
You are so completely new, so gentle and so true. My life begins because of you.

Marco, Marko

Open your eyes and look at me, you should know. I’ll be there until the sun leaves I won’t go. So don’t be scared about the sound in the trees, they’re just leaves. And be as free as you need to be, just stay close

The sky, the sky looks like a bruise, all yellows, reds and blues, but your light will shine through them
It’s true, my love cannot be moved. Your life is what ya choose. So make it something beautiful.
And dance, where no one can be seen. Love of all of the small things. And I’ll take care of everything

Open your eyes and look at me, you should know. I’ll be there until the sun leaves I won’t go. So don’t be scared about the sound in the trees, they’re just leaves. And be as free as you need to be, just stay close
Track Name: All of This Has Happened
You decide, if you’ll take this life.
By your side, I’ll make my pride.
So I, I don’t mind, if you take your time.
By and by, you’ll lose your mind.
Bye, bye bye, you’ll lose this fight.
Bye, bye bye.

All of this has happened before and again
And all of this will happen before and again
Yeah all of this has happened before and again
And all of this will happen before and again

You, so sweet, you’ll fly among the stars.
Drifting back, you’ll circle round to start.
So please, don’t cry, don’t fake your sigh.
And don’t you lie, don’t break this time
And you decide, if you’ll take this ride
And don’t you mind, if you lose your life
Don’t you die, if you lose your life
Don’t you die, if you lose.
Track Name: Dear Donald
There’s just something in your face
Something I cannot place
How could someone be all bad?
And you could stop it if you tried
There’s no need to fight
Hate is so lonely

Cause we are so much better than this
So much smarter than this
So much bigger than all of it

If we, could live side by side
You’d see we’re more alike
A wall that divides is cheap
Cause we would tear that wall on down
Or simply walk around
Un-bear your arms to harmony

Cause we are so much better than this
We’re so much smarter than this
So much bigger than all of it

Track Name: Angelusnovus
My girl once told me that regret was hard to believe.
It weighs heavier than the trees and their leaves.
But I got a pocket full of money and a fistful of seeds.
Gonna spread em in a garden, and one day I’ll see

Looking back on a guilty past will bury your thoughts,
and the fallen debris will cover the sound of that salty breeze.
But my girl once told me that storing your tears
will fill up the pool you been drowning in

So I’m taking my time. Gonna make things right
And with this fistful of seeds,
I’ll grow heavier than the leaves,
and I’ll break through the ground.
We’ll break through the ground.
Track Name: Luna
My big words are cheap.
You keep me on my feet.

Lye under this queen tree.
We'll fall fast asleep.

I know this much is true,
I'd love to dance with you.

To the waves will sway,
just don't go away.

A gun placed in my hand:
Would it make me a man?

No. It wouldn't change a thing,
but you, could make me sing.

So I don't need God to see,
just what I would be.

And No, there's no need to speak.
You are all I need.

If 2 + 2 equaled 5,
then you and me make 9.

Glance across the room,
and I'll be staring at you.

You, my one bright light,
are, the moon of my life.

You, my one bright light,
are, the moon of my life.
