Dear World
Yeah, I heard
Your letter had so much hurt
Let me try to make things right and raise the veil

Where were you before you were born?
Who rose the sun this very morn’?
But let’s not get caught in details

Dear world
Dear world
Wait for the answers on your knees
Forget what you heard you can be sure
There’s room at my table for you
Dear world

All this business of religion
When all I wanted was children
At my table to pass the ladle around
I never meant for mouths to starve
Never meant for human hearts to horde all
The crumbs that fall down (to the ground)

Dear world
Dear world
Wait for the answers on your knees
Forget what you heard you can be sure
There’s room at my table for you
Dear world

Dear, dear, dear, dear world
I’m not the enemy
Don’t unfriend me

Dear, dear, dear, dear world
The holes in my story
Are scars of glory
Take my hand you’ll see

And I agree it’s a mystery
It’s hard to suspend disbelief
But I’d sooner die than take my eyes off of you (am I getting through?)

Dear world
Dear world
Wait for the answers on your knees
Forget what you heard you can be sure
There’s room at my table for you
Dear world

What would it be like to come back to life?
It’d be strange to lay there thinking, “My watch is ticking now, now, now.”

Well, the box is nice, but a little tight
And the grave can’t contain you when the Maker gives you life… life… life

They maybe lay your body to rest
But the beating heart inside your chest says…

You’ve come to life again
You know, you know
You can start again

Your legs shake a bit… maybe need to sit
When the pain turns to comfort you will walk for miles, miles and miles

The world hears about what people are talking about
The news spreads like fire when they see you rise, rise, rise

They maybe look for ways to explain
They laid the dead but the dead was raised so….


You gotta go, go, go
And rise up from the ground
You gotta go, go, go
When the angel shouts

So, go….

You’re moving
Really moving
Getting younger
By the minute
You’re going
Really going

“Rewind” (feat. J-SCHRO) Deakon remix

Yay, I’ve got new music to share with you! “Rewind (feat. J-SCHRO) Deakon remix.”

“Rewind” is one of my favorite tracks from my “Kid Heart” album — and a lot of you told me the same thing. The feedback I always got on it though was that it was too short. So I’m super pleased to be able to offer up this remix that was brought to life by my good friend Deakon. Deakon is a remixer and beat producer extraordinaire here in the Los Angeles area. He has helped turn “Rewind” from a quiet little track to something much, much more. Most importantly, I invited my friend J-SCHRO to bring her amazingly beautiful voice to sing some new parts. I predict this girl is going to be your favorite new voice when her own album comes out.

Until then, please give this tune a listen and let me know if you feel the vibe. I hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends!


I submitted “We Will Win” to “The Biggest Loser” on NBC

I heard that NBC is seeking a new song for the upcoming season of “The Biggest Loser” so I’ve submitted my song “We Will Win.”

They were seeking anthemic songs about power and over-coming the odds. Sweeping powerful choruses with anthem-like attributes. Think Katy Perry’s “Roar” and “Brave” by Sara Bareilles. Think Queen’s “We Will Rock You” or “We Are The Champions” or R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” and “The World’s Greatest.”

I specifically wrote “We Will Win” to fit exactly the type of anthemic, up-lifting track that they’re going for. When I play this song live it’s one of those songs that people instantly “get” and sing along to. Even Los Angeles news station KTLA has played it under their sports reel!

So I’m excited to offer this song to those guys. Hope they like it and use it during “The Biggest Loser!” That would be a huge win for team ZERO!!
