about

This is Jamie's Debut EP, his first collection of works ever released to the public! All 5 songs have special meanings to him when he wrote them, and his only hope is that those same emotions will reach the people who sit down to listen to them. Thank you for supporting a dream!

Track Name: Annabelle
Wake up, kiss your face and I pretend we have a bit more time
The sun will come up soon and we'll be forced back into separate lives
I don't wanna go, I belong here in your arms
Let me close the shades and I'll stay for a little while

We could just sleep the day off, Annabelle
I know you well, and I know that you could use a little more of me
We could stay right where we are, Annabelle
I know you well, oh Annabelle

You work as if you never knew that you could stop and take a break
You're twenty two years young so don't be scared to go and act your age
I get that you have bills, and making rent is hard enough
But money isn't happiness and right now what you need is love

We could just sleep the day off, Annabelle
I know you well, and I know that you could use a little more of me
We could stay right where we are, Annabelle
I know you well, oh Annabelle

Oh Annabelle, don't you know that you're loved
By the moon and the stars, and me
Especially me, Annabelle please

We could just sleep the day off, Annabelle
I know you well, and I know that you could use a little more of me

We could just sleep the day off, Annabelle
I know you well, and I know that you could use a little more of me
I could stay by you till the end of the day, till the end of our days
Oh Annabelle
Track Name: Here's To The Man
My father took me out of school when I was 15
Said “It’s time you become a man”
All the sudden things got a lot harder than they seemed
Sent me to work, took away my plans
Then from that day on, I sang this hopeless song
No high school for me, No college degree
Here’s to the man that i’ll never be

6 years past, inside of Mike's bar
Where me and my friends drink out our days
She's summer wind behind the counter
I watch her turn the drunken boys away
She looked me in the eye, said “You could be my guy”
That was when I knew, my drinking days were through
Here’s to the man that i’ll never be

In the hospital on a Tuesday Afternoon
A moving picture on the screen
The Doctor says “You’ll be meeting your son soon"
You were born July 16th
Then from that day on, I knew what must be done
I’d work through all my days, so you can find your way
Here’s to the man that I’ll never be

My son I want to tell you, You’ll never be like me
You’ll chase your dreams and live your life as free as you could be
I’m always here to help you, I’ll always do my best
This life is yours to lead, I’ll support your every step
Here’s to the man that i'll never be

I watched you grow, I watched you pave your way
I watched you follow your own heart
My son you know, I’m more proud than I can say
And I Just hope that I’ve done my part
I hope you find, a sweetheart just like mine
Who helped me stand, and made me who I am
Here’s to the man that i'll never be

You stood still as I was lowered down
You, your boy, and the family
Hey, I do wish that i could stick around
But God he has a plan for me
You say “Daddy has passed on, but the legacy lives on”
“I wish you all could see, just what he did for me”
“Here’s to the man that i’ll never be"
Track Name: The Cure
The Cure

She said get up and dance 
I'm alone on the floor 
You're too much in your head
It was me you were looking for
I’m a little bit stressed
Maybe not feeling enough in my chest
Hope and I pray that my head won't cut off my hearts flow

Torn soul if we're telling the truth
Cut down by my own abuse 
But you’re what I need to make it through 

I'm speaking nonsense to walls 
And getting lost in it all 
Take an identity of which I'll never be sure 
I'm the victim of my own disease 
Locked my heart and threw the keys 
Won’t you be my cure 

Speak to masses as i walk on coals 
Afraid to stay on one for too long
I’m in one spot, so show me to hold
Onto the people in life worth living for

I know I've got a lot to live for
Push myself on through that open door
‘Cause It's our world to conquer 

I'm speaking nonsense to walls 
And getting lost in it all 
Take an identity of which I'll never be sure 
I'm the victim of my own disease 
I locked my heart and threw the keys 
Won’t you be my cure

I'm speaking nonsense to walls 
And getting lost in it all 
Take an identity of which I'll never be sure 
I'm the victim of my own disease 
I locked my heart and threw the keys 
Won’t you be my cure
