Just a song about our mortality.


Caught in between the lines on my page
I can see that love has come of age.
Don't stop the music as it plays
let me hold these lines in my hand
Let me play for keeps cause nothing else makes sense to me
let me play for keeps won't you give what was lent
I know it's a matter of time
but I'm playing for keeps as I read every line.
Living my days as hard as I can
I can see that life is just a pantomime
sometimes we laugh,
sometimes we cry
but I'll never let the music go by


from Walk A Narrow Line, released January 3, 2020
