about

As a compliment to the two parts of “Resolution”, I wanted to record a free album as a way to say thank you to everyone for their love and support over the past decade. This small album contains new versions of songs that signified something important to me in the past. These are the songs that helped to steady me over the years.

Track Name: Anthem [2010]
You think of angels
You think of speaking in new tongues
Do you have love?
You think of running
You think of sacrificing to flames
And throw it away
You want to go out
You want to hear them
Call your name
Call your name

You think I’m crazy
You think that maybe they were right
Am I crazy?
If I jump, is it suicide?

There’s my father
Unafraid to touch the flames
There’s my mother
Unafraid for her child

Are we crazy?
Are we crazy?
Am I crazy?
Well, I’m going to jump and not come down
Track Name: Courage [2010]
Hate not what you fear
Don't kill what you love
Give when no one sees

Don't be afraid

Hate not what you fear
Don't kill what you love
Sing when they won't hear you
Give when no one sees

Sing

Hate not what you are
Forget not your love
Stand on broken feet
Forget not your love

Hate not what you fear
Don't be afraid
Track Name: The Greatness of Mercy (All Around You)
“Every light is bright
Every wrong made right;
You’ll just have to trust me
And the greatness of mercy.”

All that burns away
All I could not say
It doesn’t matter now
In the greatness of mercy

Here comes my love
Saying things I did not know
Here comes my love
Challenging my faults and facts
Challenging my faults and facts

In this moment,
I can hear you.
In this moment I am free.

In the presence
of your face before me.
In this moment I am free.

I am reborn,
I am reborn,

Every light is bright
Every wrong made right
I’m learning to trust you
And the greatness of mercy
