ABOUT

I write lyrics and starting to get good with the guitar. I would love to work with people. I have been playing the cello since the 6th grade in middle school. I was in choir for a year in high school and have been practicing with lyrics for three years. I am dedicated to music and work at it in some way everyday and would love to have someone to work with. Here's one of my lyrics.

SPENDING TIME
Been spending my time
Searching for answers
Talked to poor dancers
Spoke to cruel people
Disguised as lancers
God show me today
Where the good people
I will never know
In everyone's hearts
Did the courage die?
I don’t want to know

This world’s head is lost
Will it soon be found?
Death’s a price I’ll bear
If we can soon live fair
But I’ll need support
For the dream to make it there

Been spending my time
Looking for masters
With powerful rhymes
But only found liars
Committing life crimes
To the dying truth
Tried to find the kind
Giving every dime
Found deceitful kings
Robbing all subjects
Their manipulative fiends

This world’s head is lost
Will it soon be found?
Death’s a price I’ll bear
If we can soon live fair
But I’ll need support
For the dream to make it there

Spending the remains
Of my dying time
Looking for any
Of the generous
Peace, loving, and kind
They’re impossible
for this soul to find
The masters caught me
No ending their reign
We follow creatures
Made to be insane

This world’s head is lost
Will it soon be found?
Death’s a price I’ll bear
If we can soon live fair
But I’ll need support
For the dream to make it there

Lost all of my time
Rotting in this cell
Spending other’s time
With me Daydreaming
Of the grand old times
When I felt brand new
Glistening with life
The times I journeyed
Where my soul would thrive
Now the time I seek
Is leaving a dead world
Full of the weak

HEARTS A CRYSTAL
intro
I'm feeling weak
Lost a friend today
She went away
Leaving behind
Regret and pain
The sun looks dim today
Will it show a new day
Please lead me oh sun
I've lost my way
Everythings the same

chorus
My heart's a crystal
Waiting to shatter like glass
My heart's a crystal
It’s showing cracks of my past
My heart's a crystal
Reflecting all the broken
Hiding endless words
That’ll never be spoken
My hearts a crystal
Oh my hearts a crystal

verse
All those games the two of us would play
Would have our minds fly so far away
Did we both enjoy all those times
Still thinking of all the journeys
Where we would play in the snow and rain
Me and you, us being outside
Was how we kept our souls sane
There were times we’d have sad fights
We’d forget it after the night
I alway wonder why things didn’t go alright

chorus
My heart's a crystal
Waiting to shatter like glass
My heart's a crystal
It’s showing cracks of my past
My heart's a crystal
Reflecting all the broken
Hiding endless words
That’ll never be spoken
My hearts a crystal
Oh my hearts a crystal

verse
Oh how the times they freeze yet change
Why does everything feel so strange
Since you left, nothing’s the same
Playing and loving life is gone
The world seems scary and wrong
My dreams would be brilliant and strong
But now they are getting crushed
I remember the rain play days
Sad on how they slowly decayed
Am I in the present or the past

chorus
My heart's a crystal
Waiting to shatter like glass
My heart's a crystal
It’s showing cracks of my past
My heart's a crystal
Reflecting all the broken
Hiding endless words
That’ll never be spoken
My hearts a crystal
Oh my hearts a crystal

verse
All of my devious lies
Gave you trouble to no end
Unable to make any amends
No repairs, this heart is shattered
The deaths made it beaten and battered
Now on a bridge waiting to fall down
I remember what you would say
God will help and show me the way
But do you recall what I would say
That I only go my own way

Instrumental

outro
Now I found a new loving friend
To help me make my amends
She’s someone that I’ll defend
However, the costs may be
She’ll always be a part of me
From all land to any sea
I no longer want to die
Now I know where my dreams lie
I still miss seeing your smile
But now i’m free, I hope you are to
