about

After whittling things down I've written about an album a year since my last album was released in 2006.

I'd say the hardest (and most fun) part is done but I still have a lot of work to do.

Track Name: The Ballad of Honey and Jojo Pt. 1 feat. Amber Nicole
I think that I found the one
he don't care about the things that I've done
and when the light shines from his eyes
I know that he'd never lie

my heart is hungry 'cause love's a game I've never won
but I'm just taking it monthly 'cause I think that I found the one

I think that I found the one
she don't care 'bout the things that I've done
and when the light shines from her eyes
the darkness runs from my mind

my heart is hungry 'cause love's a game I've never won
but I'm just taking it monthly 'cause I think that I found the won

well we had a summer of fun
so many nights under the sun
and I know that our love won't fade
I think that (s)he's gonna stay

our hearts our hungry 'cause love's a game we've never won
but we're just taking it monthly cause I think that we found the one

there's nothing I can do
there's no else like you
it's true
no one like you
Track Name: Mark Andrasko and Matt Bledsoe - Hate Me (2012)
now I hear there are rumors going round
and they're spreading all through this town
I listen to them every single day
and there's only one thing to say
I won't sit around and hide my face
I'll stand up and put you into place

what did you expect me to do?
not all those rumors that you heard were true

if you're gonna hate me hate me for who I am
not for the words that were spoken to you
if you're gonna love me love me for who I am
love me for what my soul makes you feel
love me because you know that I am real

you asked me what in life was going wrong
than stomped my trust into the ground
you acted like you were my friend
now let's see who you are in the end

why hide and be a disgrace
if there's a problem I'll say it to your face

if you're gonna hate me hate me for who I am
not for the words that were spoken to you
if you're gonna love me love me for who I am
love me for what my soul makes you feel
love me because you know that I am real

did you think it wouldn't catch up to you?
did you think I cower from you?
you need to open your eyes and see
no matter what I'm just gonna be me

now I hear there are rumors going round
and they're spreading all through this town
I listen to them every $%^ing day
and there's only one thing left to say

if you're gonna hate me hate me for who I am
if you're gonna love me love me for who I am
Track Name: Mark Andrasko and Casey Armstrong - The Wisp and the Willow (2012)
the wisp and the willow
were lazing the day away
when the wisp said to the willow
why won't my fears go away
why is the forest so green
and the creatures so mean
and there are bears in the caves full of teeth so obscene
and the willow said sweet little wisp rest your head
and I will sing you sweet peace as you lay in your bed

it's okay I'm right here
you don't have to worry baby
it's okay I'm right here
you don't have to worry baby
it's okay I'm right here
and don't worry babe it's okay

the mama bear and her bearling
were fast asleep in their cave
when fear woke the bearling
and wide awake she sprang
why is the forest so green
and the creatures so mean
and the shadows on the trees well they looks so obscene
and the mama bear said sweet little cub rest your head
and I will sing you to sleep as you lay in your bed

it's okay I'm right here
you don't have to worry baby
it's okay I'm right here
you don't have to worry baby
it's okay I'm right here
and don't worry babe it's okay

sleep little daughter
and sail away
the moon is your father
and the heavens the place
sleep little son and soon you will see
in your dreams we'll run together just you and me
Track Name: Love and War
her heart is more slippery than stone
when the frost and the wind and the rain drive her cruel words home
as you sit all alone

it's more than you bargained for when you said to her "yes please"
silence! does not exist so would you please
take me away with those keys?

when did love become war
and tell me what are we fighting for?
I gave you everything I could give to you and more
but I saw the crosshairs in your eyes when I was your only alibi
if anything you've said is true
then there's nothing fair in loving you

and I don't know what else I can say
everything that you do you you throw our love away
and I don't know how we came this far
everything that you say you tear our love apart
