about

In 2005 I wrote and recorded a CD every month for a year. A physical CD was sent to whoever wanted it. 10 years later I have finished recording a 12 track LP with folk collective Few Who Do. I'm planning on doing a monthly release of each track from the LP in addition to challenging myself to write 2 new acoustic tracks written each month.

Here are the 2 tracks I wrote in April and track 4 from the LP - Bad Day.

1. Bad Day - Being the eternal optimist I am this song started out is about looking on the bright side of a bad day. However... you soon realize that there's always a flip-side and there are no winners because even good days could have be better.

2. Driving In Our Car - Written whilst driving in my car ... I've started recording this to be part of the kids album I'm currently writing. Go to www.facebook.com/dadandkidmusic for more info on that!

3. What A Great Idea - An anti-love song about falling in love with the idea of falling in love but not falling in love.

Track Name: Bad Day
It could’ve been a bad day, the worst I could imagine
It could’ve been the wrong time, for all of this to happen
It could’ve been a moment, a moment never savoured
It could’ve been the end of, the end of something greater.

And yet it could’ve been worse than this,
And yet it could’ve been worse than this,
And yet it could’ve been worse than this,
And yet it could’ve been worse than this

It could've been a good day, the best I could imagine
It could’ve been the right time, for everything to happen
It could’ve been a moment, a moment that I savoured
It could’ve been the start of, the start of something greater.

Yet it could’ve been better than this
Yet it could’ve been better than this
Yet it could’ve been better than this
Yet it could’ve been better than this


Now you're falling down into my arms
Falling down to disarm

It could've been better, It could've been worse
It could've been better, It could've been worse
It could've been better.
Track Name: Driving In Our Car
When we’re driving in our car what will we see?
When we’re driving in our car what will we see?
When we’re driving in our car what will we see?
When we're driving in our car

We might see a yellow school bus
We might see a double decker bus
We might see a long bendy bus
When we’re driving in our car

We might see a red fire truck
We might see An ambulance
We might see a police car in a rush
When we’re driving in our car

We might go over a bridge
We might go under a bridge
We might go round a roundabout
When we’re driving in our car

We might see rain falling down
We might see big fluffy clouds
We might see stars all around
When we're driving in our car

We might see people walking dogs
We might see people laughing a lot
We might see people jogging along
When we're driving in our car

We might see a forest of trees
We might see geese flying in a V
We might see a cow or a sheep
When we're driving in our car

We might see a doughnut shop
We might see an ice cream truck
We might see our favorite restaurant
When we're driving in our car

We might stop at a traffic light
We might stop and let a train go by
We're gonna stop and say goodbye
Because we've arrived back home!
Track Name: What A Great Idea
Am I falling in love with the idea or am I falling in love?
Am I falling in love with the idea or am I falling in love?

Take One Step forward and 2 steps back
You’ve taken my soul with a heart attack
Losing my self, losing track
I’m stuck in a rut with unconditional love

Am I falling in love with the idea or am I falling in love?
Am I falling in love with the idea or am I falling in love?

If burning bridges ain’t enough
Then healing myself sure is tough
Finding someone I can really trust
I’m stuck in a rut with unconditional love

I’m one of the frozen ones
lost in pro’s and con’s
and I feel I can’t move on
stuck in a rut with unconditional love

I fell in love with the idea, I never fell in love.
