about

Delve into the unconventional mind of a young singer/songwriter on encounters with love, rejection, friendship, and even some arrogant jerks, with songs that started out with just a guitar and a voice, but progressed into something much more.

Track Name: Hello, Beautiful
Hello beautiful, it’s nice to meet you
But I can’t seem to remember my name
I’ve seen so many like you pass by
But somehow you’re not the same
‘Cause you got that
Crooked smile that I can’t help but love
You might be the guy that I’ve been dreaming of
But I don’t wanna be too forward
So I’ll just say

CHORUS:
Hello, beautiful
Won’t you stay for a while?
Say something funny and make me smile
I don’t know if I’ll ever see you again
But I’ve found it inevitably true
Hello, beautiful
I think I like you

Hello beautiful, I’ve been hoping
You won’t forget me tonight
Your figure’s starting to fade away
As you walk out of sight
But you got that
Funny laugh that I can’t help but love
You don’t have much but for me it’s enough
And I must admit, upon meeting you
My heart’s in flight

[CHORUS]


Now I know I’m not all that funny
And I don’t look like Zooey Deschanel
And I use really lame chord progressions
That’s probably not hard to tell
And honestly I don’t have the guts
To ask for your number
But I guess it’s sort of the same thing
If I ask you to follow me on Twitter


Hello, beautiful
Wherever you may be
I’m singing this song to you
But you’re probably not thinking of me

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Forever
So this is what they talk about
The coming of age
We’re diving in headfirst again
Turning the next page
The bright eyes, the glowing lights
It’s just us here tonight
And we will stand side by side
Forever and again

CHORUS:
‘Cause the night is young
And we’re dancing under the streetlights
We’re running as fast as we can
And this is our forever
‘Cause the night is our best friend
And I don’t know where we’re going
But I’ll be with you in the end
We won’t be young forever
So let’s live while we can

This is what we’ll talk about
When we’re turning old and grey
And we’ll look through all the pages
And re-live it all again
Your bright eyes, oh how they shined
And we’ll go back to that night
And I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine
Forever and again

[CHORUS]

Take my hand
And don’t let go
‘Cause this is our time
I want you to know
[REPEAT 3x]

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Jaded
Jaded, I’m jaded for loving you
I just don’t really know what to do
I kind of hope that you’re jaded, too
‘Cause you might find someone like me
But I can’t find someone like you

Jaded, I don’t know if I’ll find another guy
Who listens to all of the same bands that I like
And I like the way you sing your songs
Sometimes it’s off-key, but I don’t mind at all

Jaded, I’ll always want something more
‘Cause anyone else but you is just a bore to me
Someday I’ll find somebody new
But for now I’ll just be jaded for loving you
For now I’ll just be jaded for loving you
Track Name: Talking To Me
I used to think you were the smartest
I thought you were so cool
I used to think that you were definitely
Not an arrogant fool
My heart used to flutter when you spoke to me
But recently I’ve made an unfortunate discovery

I’ll try to say it in the nicest way
But you’re really pretentious and cliche

CHORUS:
‘Cause it all went south once you opened your mouth
You are not the guy I thought you would be
Used to think you had so much modesty
But you act like your words are poetry
I never thought I’d wish you’d stop talking to me

You have really great taste in music
And I think that’s really nice
But I don’t need to hear your lyrical analysis
That’s two paragraphs long, Jesus Christ
You’re so good-looking but it’s all been overshadowed
You have really great hair
But you’re just extremely shallow

[CHORUS]

I should be excited
I thought I’d be delighted
That I talked to you and you actually responded
But now I see this will never be a thing
I wouldn’t have said this before
But that makes me sort of happy

[CHORUS]

Yes, it all went south once you opened your mouth
You are not the guy I thought you would be
You could use some more modesty
‘Cause your words aren’t poetry
I never thought I’d wish you’d stop talking to me
Oh, I never thought I’d wish you’d stop talking to me
Please stop talking to me
Track Name: Again
The last time I saw you
My heart didn’t beat any faster
The last time I saw you
I didn’t feel anything at all
The last time I saw you
You weren’t any more beautiful to me than you were before
The last time I saw you
I didn’t want something more

But I’m looking into those same eyes
That I fell in love with the very first time
I tried to spare myself the heartbreak
But try as I might

CHORUS:
Ooh, I think I’m falling for you again
It’s not what I intended
Ooh, I thought I was content
With being just friends
But looking at you now
Oh, it’s so hard to pretend
I tried my best but I’ve fallen
Again

The last time I saw you
I didn’t mind saying goodbye
The last time I saw you
I didn’t have to lie
The last time I saw you
You didn’t make me laugh ’til my lungs hurt
The last time I saw you
I wasn’t at a loss for words

But I’m looking at that same old smile
That I fell in love with so many times
I tried to spare myself the heartbreak
But I can’t put up a fight

[CHORUS]


I was so happy with myself
Thought I had figured it all out
Thought I could make this all just go away
I thought time could strengthen this weak heart
Push you away into the dark
But I still want you to stay, hey

Ooh, I think I’m falling for you again
It’s not what I intended
Ooh, I thought I was content
But I don’t wanna be just friends
‘Cause looking at you now
Oh, I just can’t pretend
I’ve tried my best, but I’ve fallen for you again
