Introducing...
The Story of a Soul

Each of the six songs on this album has a story. In fact, every song I write has story. Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and listen to my songs. I hope you will hear the heart and soul I put into each song.
I have been releasing one song a month as my "Monthly Muse" - Acoustic Demos. For my sixth month I decided to release a six track completed album.

Their stories:

MODERN DAY ROMANCE

...This day has arrived,...In my mind...I'm already here...

For many women, the fairy tale ending is the proposal, the wedding, the happy family, and so on... But that does not always come so easy, especially in this modern world. But for those who are already with that "special someone" it can be frustrating when one person is draggin their feet. If you think hard enough, I know you can name a few people who have felt this way. I decided to poke fun at this idea, rather, at this observation. Because, let's face it, in this world, our modern day romances usually take this course.

FAMOUS

Sometimes when I think about all that comes with fame, or the road to it and things that can be compromised along the way...I think... this is not for me. But then, I remember why I'm playing, and putting myself out there...its the music. Its the love of writing, playing, and singing. So why not have some fun with the simple thoughts in my mind? There are some things a girl just isn't meant to do, but others she is destined for, but... I'm still figuring this whole thing called life out.

YELLOW LIGHT LOVE

. . . There are many interpretations for this song and that is its purpose. I want this song to find its way into a personal situation for you where it can relate to you. Everyone has experienced a time in his or her life when you just need to slow down. Things found there way of getting out of control and you ended up caught up in everything and disoriented. Or there are times when you know what the right thing is to do, but you follow your selfish desires. Where was the big yellow light there to slow you down? That is the thing about truly loving someone, the light is there to remind you. . . it will not force you. . . will you see it?

REBUILD

Spread.Love.Around.

Amid tragedies, natural disasters, & the challenges in life there is a need to rebuild. Life is about how we handle the struggles that we face. It is about how we show love to others no matter the cost. This song is a reminder to me & I hope it is a reminder to you to spread love around. Random acts of kindness & a smile to a stranger can do more than you can imagine. When you need to be lifted up, put back together, or just need to sing something in your car at the top of your lungs...let this be your anthem.

EVERYDAY

One afternoon as I was making my bed I wondered how different my life would be if I was a celebrity, mostly because then I wouldn't have to make my own bed. I thought about the wonderful possessions I would own, my big beautiful house, millions of fans screaming my name and singing my songs, but then the longer I thought about it the less I yearned for it. Of course, I would love to have the world singing my songs with me, but What I was most excited about was sharing all of the excitements of fame and just the excitements of life with the ones that I love, and the "one" that I love. Yes, my every day life with my loved ones is what I wish most to be my everyday. But, if along life's journey I happen to make billions...all the better. They will always be my "everyday."

IN A WORLD
WE CALL OUR OWN

This song was inspired by my work at SOS Children's Village. I realized there that home does not have to be a place. Home can be a relationship between people. Whether that relationship is between siblings, parent & child, husband & wife, or boyfriend & girlfriend, as long as they are together they are home.
When you listen to this song you may think of the foster children. But, you also may relate it to your own life. No matter where life takes you, no matter where you end up, as long as you are with the ones you love, you are home. The house doesn't matter, the past doesn't matter, when you are together you create this world, this home, that you can have all your own...

Track Name: Famous
Da da doo...da da doo...da da doo... What's a girl to do?

I'm not meant to be famous.
The whole world tells me so.
My life is too normal, not enough personality for a reality show.
Mmmm...I'm not meant to be famous.
As odd as that may be.
No I won't pose for Playboy, clothes on or off that's just not classy to me.

Cause I'm not reckless or driven away from it all.
I'm just your average, normal girl who lives down the hall.
And I could be your best friend you've ever had, but honey you'll see...
The fame just isn't me.

Da da doo...da da doo...da da doo... What's a girl to do?

No I'm not saying I'm classy.
I'm not your delicacy.
No photoshop here, you can look at my rear, yeah there ain't much to see.
Mmmmm... and I'm not meant to wear heels.
Some women just don't...yeah...
I'm fine on this flat ground it keeps me down to earth, ya know?

Cause I'm not reckless or driven away from it all.
I'm just your average, normal girl who lives down the hall.
And I could be your best friend you've ever had, but honey you'll see...
The fame just isn't me.

And I'm not meant to go tanning, yeah.
That's called sunburn for me, ooh, oh oh...
Cause if I wanted some lobster, I'd just go have dinner by the sea.

Cause I'm not reckless or driven away from it all.
I'm just your average, normal girl who lives down the hall.
And I could be your best friend you've ever had, but honey you'll see...
The fame just isn't me.

Da da doo...da da doo...da da doo... What's a girl to do?
Track Name: Yellow Light Love
Faded pictures on the wall
Pacing up and down the hall
Can't get past whats ahead
Do you see that picture in front of you?
Right there staring back at you?
Look like your dead...

Back in the day, do you think you had a chance anyway?
Do you think it has worth when time faded away?

I used to let my morals lead me, but then my heart took control
I was lost, but I'm not found
Still making my way back home
I needed some kind of guide
A yellow light by my side saying slow down
Saying slow down

Do you think there is hope for me?
Washed away in inequity...
Trying to be found but, whose searching for me?

I used to let my morals lead me, but then my heart took control
I was lost, but I'm not found
Still making my way back home
I needed some kind of guide
A yellow light by my side saying slow down
Saying slow down

Do you know what its like when your not trying to hide and no one can find you?
Not even you...

I used to let my morals lead me, but then my heart took control
I was lost, but I'm not found
Still making my way back home
I needed some kind of guide
A yellow light by my side saying slow down
Saying slow down

I need a light by my side
Praying won't you be my guide
Making my world brand new
Instead I found hopeless treasures
Showing me all life's pleasures
But it was just a ruse...

I need a light by my side
Praying won't you be my guide
Making my world brand new
Instead I found hopeless treasures
Showing me all life's pleasures
But it was just a ruse...

I used to let my morals lead me
But then my heart took control
I was lost, but I'm not found
Still making my way back home...
Track Name: Rebuild
Hey, hey, hey....
When it rains and no rainbow comes right after
Home wrecked, left with a disaster
Seems the world keeps on spinning faster, yet.

It's breaking you down
Filling you up inside
Come on, sing it out
Get it off of your mind
Sing, da, da, da, da,
da, da, da...
Spread your love around
Spread your love around
Hey, hey, hey

Got no luck, need a four leaf clover
Beaten down, got this weight all on your shoulders
Every day bones are getting older, yet

It's breaking you down
Filling you up inside
Come on, sing it out
Get it off of your mind
Sing, da, da, da, da,
da, da, da...
Spread your love around
Spread your love around
Hey, hey, hey

Spread your love around
Spread your love around
Spread your love around
Rebuild
Rebuild

Spread your love around
Spread your love around
Spread your love around
Rebuild
Rebuild

Etc...
Track Name: Everyday
Today's a day like every day
I get up my bed is made...
And here's a though I know ya hate...
Today's a day...like every day
la, la, la, la, la

And I'm sitting here, playing a song
Katy Perry probably got nothing on
And I'm just sitting here like every day
But she's living California way
Oh life's a beach, can't ya see?
Lady Gaga running from paparazzi
I go to bed around ten o'clock
Ain't waking up like P. Diddy ready to rock

But today I love you
Today you're my heart and soul
And if we never would have met life would be so dull
And I may say its like every other
But don't take that wrong
Not saying I wouldn't love to have billions, but I love you so fricken bad
Every day

Oh, mmmm, every day I see the leaves, feel the breeze or snow falls
And Tosh is like in his home, YouTube on, AC always on
My night out is dinner for two
No ocean view, just me and you
While Bruno Mars knows how I feel
Just watch the stars. love you the way you are
Oh, whoa
La, la, la, la, la,

Like to run outside
Maybe run and hide, sunshine I like...
While Weezy every day got dues to pay listen to what I say just let him play
Run outside, he won't run and hide
Oh, life's so nice

la, la, la, la, la

But today I love you
Today you're my heart and soul
And if we never would have met life would be so dull
And I may say its like every other
But don't take that wrong
Not saying I wouldn't love to have billions, but I love you so fricken bad
Every day

La, la, la, la, la, la...

And I think you should have gotten that award over Taylor Swift
Just kidding
And I think life is so much more than pure bliss, picture this...
Billboards, records, nah, not a thing, realize this...
Holding hands, making plans, uh yes it is...every day

But today I love you
Today you're my heart and soul
And if we never would have met life would be so dull
And I may say its like every other
But don't take that wrong
Not saying I wouldn't love to have billions
Cause I would love to have billions
But I love you so fricken bad every day

La, la, la, la, la everyday
You're my everyday
Track Name: In a World We Call Our Own
In a world, all our own, let's just sit here and wait for the dawn to break
No house, but a home, sit here with me forget all of yesterday
Look at the sunshine rising on high
Kiss the moonlight of the past goodbye

And don't look back
Yes, your heart will stay intact
When I look at our journey now no one can hurt me
Look at me, when you're with me you're home
In this world that we call our own

Forget the past when sun was gone...
Now we're dawning on a whole new way
A way of life, but there's still love
No next court dates child
They cannot take you away
Look at your father's eyes
Cause they're still here
In your bright mind, crystal clear

And don't look back
Yes, your heart will stay intact
When I look at our journey now no one can hurt me
Look at me, when you're with me you're home
In this world that we call our own

Hold on
Feel the rain on your face
Hold on
There's no halfway place
Hold on
When you're with me your home

In this world that we call our own....
