Bleed (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

You looked me in the eye, I believed the lie
Said I was all you’d ever need
Piece of my heart I see your disguise, saying love would never die
Longing desires, a game to us all, not so sweet when it’s you that takes the fall
Blind ambition plants an ugly seed, Can’t you see, oh can’t you see?
It’s your love that makes me bleed
Life’s not easy, but the truth could set you free
Whatever happened to you and me
Like a razor, to my skin, knife to my heart, that’s the hurting part
Can’t you see, oh can’t you see
It’s your love that makes me bleed
Longing desires a game to us all, not so sweet when it’s you that takes the fall
Blind ambition plants an ugly seed, that’s why, why we bleed
Can’t you see, oh can’t you see
It’s your love that makes me bleed
Like a razor, to my skin, knife to my heart
That’s the hurting part
Can’t you see, oh can’t you see
It’s your love, that makes me bleed
That’s why, why we bleed, that’s why, why we bleed, that’s why, why we bleed…

Love Horses (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

Little girl, just three years old
Carrying a bucket full of oats
Morning rising, long brown hair,
Raised on a farm with her best friend a mare
She grew up to be a pretty young girl
Riding horses was all her world
Tried to love me for a while
Broken promises, she rode out the miles
She said… Come on and love horses like I do
Their loyal friends, honest and true
Learn to run and fly with the wind
Come on and love horses like I do
Found a poem in a box of her years
Reading those words, they still bring me a tear
So I sing this song for that little cowgirl
She cried… Come on and love horses like I do!
Their loyal friends, honest and true, learn to run and fly with the wind
Come on and love horses like I do, come on and love horses like I do
Come on and love horses like I do, come on and love horses…… like I do

Rock My Reggae Bone (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)  

Got up this morning wrong side of the dead, took a pill for my aching head
Tired of my job, my life and my bills, full moons rising, looking for a thrill
I spoke my mind and said….
Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul
Need a groove to get outta this hole, Rock Rock my Reggae bone
My Rasta party is ready to roll, gonna dance and just let go
Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul
Need a groove to get outta this hole, Rock Rock my Reggae bone
Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul
Rock Rock my Reggae bone, gonna dance and just let go
Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it down in my soul
Need a groove to get outta this hole, gonna dance and just let go
Sing it loud now…. Rock Rock my Reggae bone wanna feel it way down in my soul
Rock Rock my Reggae bone, wanna feel it way down in my soul

Never Meant To Be (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

Early this morning, you crossed my mind
Felt the pain deep inside
You wept for us, but you never cried
Alone in the dark, you learned to face the lies
Something that I cannot hide, it’s hard to undo tragic lies
Seems some things were never meant to be, that’s what she’ll always be to me
Just a girl who once loved me, that’s what she’ll always mean to me
We were finished from the start   we were two broken hearts
Blind fool, chasing white lines, we both knew it was a matter of time
Life doesn’t have to be so sad, it was a moment on a broken path
Seems some things were never meant to be, that’s what she’ll always be to me
Just a girl who once loved me    that’s what she’ll always mean to me
Seems some things they were, never…… never, meant to be
Seems some things were never meant to be, seems some things were never meant to be
Just a girl who once loved me that’s what she’ll always be to me
I was blind, blind to see, now I know why you needed to be free
Sometimes things are never meant to be, Sometimes things are never meant to be,
Sometimes things are never meant to be
Seems some things they were never…never meant to be

Exit 38 (Roddan Music B.M.I -2017)

Looking out the window as far as I can see
She was a temptress wild and free
Blue eyes green trees I see endlessly, that girl she really meant a lot to me
Rollin east, highway I-ninety
Burning desire in our eyes, that girl she really knew how to fly
Blonde hair with a smile that kills, I was hoping for more than a thrill
Should’ve known better than to pull off the road
Oh that girl she was ready to go, lord forgive us for our mistake
Pulling off of exit I-38
Burning desire in our eyes, that girl she really knew how to fly
Loved each other for all the wrong reasons, lord knows I ain’t no angel
Please forgive me, but-wutta fun mistake, pulling out on exit I-38
Should’ve known better than to pull off the road
Oh that girl she was ready to go, lord forgive us for our mistake
Pulling off of exit I-38, Pulling off of exit I-38, Pulling off of exit I-38

CROSS TO BEAR (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Saw a leaf  blowin’ across the sky, caught it from the corner of my eye
Thinking about the years of my life, uphill battle riddled with strife
Guess it’s just my cross to bear,  guess it’s just, my cross
Mistakes I’ve made people I’ve hurt, long for redemption fistful of dirt
Heard it’s never too late to change your ways, you and I only got a certain amount of days
Guess it’s just my cross to bear choices I’ve made, acts of despair
Guess it’s just my cross to bear, guess it’s just my cross to bear
Second chances few and far between, at least that’s what, what I’ve seen
How can I make you believe, you live your life like you’ve been deceived
Guess it’s just my cross to bear, choices I’ve made, acts of despair
Guess it’s just my cross to bear,  now its my, my cross to wear
Guess it’s just my cross to bear
Guess it’s just…….. my cross

EMPTY MILES (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

She used to look at him with that smile, and pretty green eyes
They’d talk late at night about life, and all its trials
Told her he loved her like an angel child, now he’d do anything again to see her smile
Now he walks empty miles, now he walks empty miles
They met at a party, an old run down house
He spilled his beer on her pretty, pretty white blouse
She loved the way he looked into her eyes, promised each other they’d never say goodbye
Now she walks empty miles, now he walks empty miles
She cries alone in her pain, innocent love it’s now in vain
Now she walks empty miles, now he talks without a smile, now they walk empty miles
Pretends he loves another one, he lied when he said it’d never be undone
  Through many days, and all of life’s trials, they’d think of each other every once in a while
 Forgiveness became their cross to bear, playing love like truth or dare
Now she walks empty miles, now he talks without a smile, now they walk empty miles
Now she walks empty miles, now he talks empty miles, now they walk empty miles

BITTER PILL (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Checkin’ the rear view kickin’ up stones, thinking about our broken home
I waited too long to say goodbye, and now it’s time for me to fly
Stop making me wrong, we both wrote that song, we tried to hang on but that was tragically wrong
Waited too long to say goodbye, and now it’s time for me to fly
I got a dream in my pocket and a song in my head
Learning to live with what you said
No need to call it’s just another fall, I’m learning to swallow a bitter pill
Gave you my love you gave me a thrill, love turned in to such a bitter pill
Now we live apart I guess a fresh start, it only cost us two broken hearts
I love you now and I always will, trying to swallow such a bitter pill
I got a dream in my pocket and a song in my head
Learning to live with what you said
No need to call, it’s just another fall, I’m learning to swallow a bitter pill
I gave you my love you gave me a thrill, love turned in to such a bitter pill
Learning to swallow a bitter pill, love turned in to such a bitter pill

FAR AWAY (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Talking to a friend just the other day, she lost her son on a highway far away
Change is the one thing that stays the same, please help me Lord on my way
She said, he’s not gone he’s just far away and we’ll be together again on some sunny day
He’s not gone he’s just flown away, and we’ll be together again, some sunny day
She’s a beauty she shines in the sun, how I loved to see that girl run
Things they change life’s just that way, you know I miss that girl most everyday
She said, she’s not gone, she’s just far away, and you’ll be together again, on some sunny day
She’s not gone she’s just flown away and we’ll be together again, on some sunny day
Only change stays the same, please help us Lord on our way
He said well I’m not gone you’re just far away, and we’ve been together every day
He’s not gone he’s just flown away, and we’ll be together again, some sunny day

RAINS COMING DOWN (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Can’t hold on for very long, you and I we’ve got to be strong
There’s an old Gospel song says we’re not here long, born unto this world then we’re gone
Don’t look back let’s forget the past, promise this time we’ll try and make it last
I love you now and that’s all that matters, if it don’t stop raining we just might shatter
The rain it keeps coming down, need the clouds to break before I drown
Let’s hold on and try to make it right, you know the rain’s coming down hard tonight
Can’t hold on for very long, you and I we’ve got to be strong
There’s an old Gospel song says we’re not here long, born unto this world then we’re gone
The rain it keeps coming down, I need the clouds to break before I drown
Let’s hold on and try to make it right, you know the rain’s coming down hard tonight
You know the rain’s coming down hard tonight
You know the rain’s coming down hard tonight

I Can’t See (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

When my mind finally clears, that’s when all the thoughts rush in
The day’s been short and the nights way too long, that’s when I think of what might have been
I always feel so insecure, bittersweet love that’s just not there
Is this what I deserve, I guess it’s all just beautifully unfair
Living in a world of make believe, eyes wide open but I can’t see
Trying to be what I can’t be, trying to see what I can’t see.
Tell me…tell me…, what I can’t see
Living in a world of make believe, eyes wide open but I can’t see
Trying to be what I can’t be, trying to see what I can’t see.
Tell me…….. tell me……… what I can’t see
Trying to live with what I can’t be, living in a world of make believe
Just trying to live with what I don’t see, trying to love with what I can’t love
Trying to see what I don’t see, just trying to live, live and be free

LET LOVE BE FOUND (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

You don’t see me, look inside your dreams
You’re my angel now, set yourself free
I feel your breath, like a ghost you haunt me
Feels like you’ll always be the man to want me
Let my love be found, I’m starting to go down
You’re my angel come ‘round, let my love be found
Let love be found
You don’t see me, look inside you
I feel your breath, like a ghost you haunt me
We’ll live together forever young
This I promise until I’m gone
Let my love be found, promise we won’t go down
You’re my angel come ‘round, let our love be found
Let my love be found…

SAME CONVERSATION (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

It’s been awhile my old friend, more time than I’d ever dreamt
Seems we picked up where we left, talk of time and where it went
It’s a new old feeling, thinking of you, it’s melancholy déjà vu
It’s the same conversation just another day
Time stands still then it slips away
It’s the mystery of life in which we play
It’s the same conversation just another day
Seems like yesterday those dancin’ days, sunny California rays
Reckless dare of our youth, Swing concerts drinking booze
Sabbath, Bowie, Humble Pie, the Deepest Purple and getting high
It’s the same conversation just another day
Time stands still then it slips away
It’s the mystery of life in which we play
It’s the same conversation just another day
Looking back on those bygone days, summer nights in a California haze
Take me back to the past, the future’s cast but nothing lasts
Memories after so much time, glad you’re still a friend of mine
It’s the same conversation just another day
Time stands still then it slips away
It’s the mystery of life in which we play
It’s the same conversation just another day
It’s the same conversation just another day

WHISKEY, PILLS, & PAIN (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

It might be hard for most to understand, cards that friends and I were dealt our hand
Poison libations used to be so much fun, whiskey and pills that made us run
Give me grace Lord to not feel numb, pills and drink like the barrel of a gun
Burying hurt is hard to sustain drowning in a river, of whiskey, pills and pain
Time has passed like youthful reckless haste, so many years did we waste
Old man time he didn’t cut us no slack, like it or not we can’t get time back
Give me grace Lord to not feel numb, pills and drink like the barrel of a gun
It’s a hard road of intoxication, your soul longs for medication
Burying hurt is hard to sustain, drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain
It’s so hard but we must be strong, that winding road is much too long
Just when you’re feeling oh so low, that’s the time to just let go
It’s a hard road of intoxication, your soul longs for medication
Burying hurt is hard to sustain, drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain
It’s a hard road of intoxication, your soul longs for medication
Burying hurt is hard to sustain, drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain
Drowning in a river of whiskey, pills and pain
Drowning in a river………….. of whiskey, pills and pain

CROSSROAD DUES (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Temptation got the best of me, looks like it’s just my destiny
Devil’s got me running he’s hot on my track, got one eye forward and one looking back
Showing me the way that I’m destined to roll, the devil says he can lighten my load
Says he’ll pull some strings down at the crossroads
Playing my heart with worn out parts, paying my respects and singing the blues
Lord have mercy on my soul, making deals for rock n roll
Paying my crossroads dues
Lord I’ve been lost and I’ve been found, but I can’t find me no grace around
Show me the way I think I’m going down, need me a tune with that crying sound
Playing my heart with worn out parts, paying my respects and singing the blues
Lord have mercy on my soul, making deals for rock n roll
Paying my crossroads dues
Meet me down on that road tonight, down to the place where you seal it tight
Paying our respects to those before us
Singing the Blues with the Delta ghost chorus

RECONCILLIATION (Roddan Music B.M.I 2016)

Got no choice than to look back and see, hearing the voices that came from me
There’s nothing that I need to fight, just admit what’s right
Like a time machine we’re cast in a world where nothing lasts
Like the quiet one he said, all things must pass
It’s a hard road of reconciliation
Swallow your pride and take a hard look inside
Seeing the truth it’s your consolation
Find your peace it’s your reconciliation
Now more alive, I feel it all
It might be a setup for my next fall
Sometimes the hurt is just too much to bear
An unforgiving voice that’s always there
Trying to make sense of the past like a childish dare
It’s a hard road of reconciliation
Swallow your pride and take a hard look inside
Seeing the truth it’s your consolation
Find your peace it’s your reconciliation
Like a time machine we’re cast in a world where nothing lasts
Like the quiet one he said all things must pass
It’s a hard road of reconciliation
Swallow your pride and take a hard look inside
Seeing the truth it’s your consolation
Find your peace it’s your, reconciliation,
Find your peace it’s your reconciliation
Find your peace it’s your reconciliation

Patty Jean (Roddan Music B.M.I. 2017)

Many nights at home alone, listening to you on the radio, poignant words, rang through and true…
you picked me up when I was blue, just wanna say…….. Thank you
You sang about growing up in Maine,
The beauty of letting go and letting them fly, oh sometimes…I swore you could just feel my pain…
You picked me up when I was blue… just wanna say….thank you
Patty Jean sing a song for me…
Help me see the world a little differently…
Sometimes I cried, but I learned how to fly…
Patty Jean…. sing a song for me
You sang about Moses, you asked him to part the sea, that’s the song, really stole, stole my heart from me…
Maybe I’ll see you from afar, sitting alone in the corner of a bar, writing another song for the radio….
I’ll tip my head and smile at you, the only girl……….. who could ever get through
Patty Jean sing a song for me, help me see the world a little differently…
I’ll follow the mooon to hear you sing
Patty Jean play a song for me…
Patty Jean sing a song tonight… for me, Patty Jean… won’t you sing a song for me…
