about

After drifting around the world, experiencing many things awful and awesome, I have decided to tread the path I feared I could not succeed in: a life devoted to music.

Debt and curiousity drove me to China. A lack of Chinese skills, English speakers in China and hunger for something new took me to the Philippines to create this album.

Seeing heartbreaking poverty like I had not seen before (a group of maybe 10 homeless children all less than 15 years of age, huffing) inspired me to donate half of the profits from this album to Virlanie Foundation, helping street kids in Manila (www.virlanie.org).

That's where I'm at as I release this album. You can contact me via www.sessymusic.com Write me with questions, comments, requests to play in your living room, wrestle your pig, etc.

Track Name: Dead in Your Tracks
I’m gonna be the one who takes, all the mistakes I made
I’m gonna be the one who fails again and gets there anyway
I’m gonna be the one who stops and stares as you walk on by
I’m gonna be the one who pulls myself up now just watch me try again

Again, watch me try again
Oh how little I’d known, oh how much I’ve grown
Now watch me try again

I crashed and burned, stopped and turned from the cold cold eyes
I learned to stand, got the upper hand, feeling so high
I’m not gonna be the one who stops and stares as you walk on by
I’m gonna be the one who stops you dead in your tracks now watch me try again
Track Name: Restart
You took away, all that I had
Lost my first love, now I lost my band
A bullshit excuse, I just wanted the truth
I couldn't understand, felt I had no use

Then I met the girl, whom you fell hard for
Told me a story, your song had ignored
I love that song, but it's funny how this went
Thank you irony, for this new friend

Now I'm alone, but the music's started flowing
Far from home, but hopefully I'm growing
I've picked up the pen, started writing again
I hope you know, it's my time to get ahead

You quit your dream, settled for less,
I had my falls, I dove to my depths
I've wasted my time, settled too
I'm ready to go now, ready to move

Now I'm alone, but the music's started flowing
Far from home, but hopefully I'm growing
I've picked up the pen, started writing again
I hope you know, it's my time to get ahead

On the wayside, aim for the Bayside, now your on your own
On the wayside, Listening to Bayside, now you’re off your throne

You quit your dream, settled for less,
I had my falls, I dove to my depths
I've wasted my time, settled too
I'm ready to go now, ready to move

Now I'm alone, but the music's started flowing
Far from home, but hopefully I'm growing
I've picked up the pen, started writing again
I hope you know, it's my time to get ahead
Track Name: Tired
Are you tired of walking home, alone late at night
To an empty apartment, avoiding others' eyes
Cause I'm tired of walking home, chasing rides
I'm tired of dying, In this night life

So if you'd like I'll walk you home, my hand in yours
My ears and heart open wide, please tell me more
I'll look into your eyes, trip deep into them
And part your hungry lips, as you take me in

I'll be your anchor, you'll be my sea
I'll keep you afloat, you'll damn near drown me
You'll swallow me whole, I'll keep you stationary
I'll fight with the storms, you send down on me (hey)

We'll keep each other warm, in this cold city
We'll give each other all, the space that we need
We'll cry and we'll fight, to be understood
We'll give each other time, and learn what we should

I'll be your anchor, you'll be my sea
I'll keep you afloat, you'll damn near drown me
You'll swallow me whole, I'll keep you stationary
I'll fight with the storms, you send down on me (hey)

Through the strife and sleepless nights, we'll survive, we'll survive
There'll be times when we'll be one and we'll feel so alive

I'll be your anchor, you'll be my sea
I'll keep you afloat, you'll damn near drown me
You'll swallow me whole, I'll keep you stationary
I'll fight with the storms, you send down on me
Track Name: Bisous
You weren’t pleased that I didn’t kiss you, but in time I found I couldn’t resist you
Your eyes, your mind, drew me in
Ambitions, goals and work to show, that you dream big and you’ll give it a go
Your smile, your style, darling, you know how to live
Back and back, forth and forth, your words are strong and I want more,
Our time, our lives, met here, let’s not waste them

Seize the day and the seven seas, take everything that we please,
Your grace, your face, I thanked you and you thanked me
Your body brain, determined drive, I knew you were of the most exciting kind
So be well, revel, I’m hoping I’ll see you again
Track Name: Down
It's time to forget, the nights that we spent
And if you really won't go, I guess I don't blame you
Insisting to know, I guess I'll have to break you
Down

Too much is not enough for you
I always let you, I always let you down

It's time to forget, the time that we shared,
And if you really won't go, I guess I don't blame you
Insisting to know, I guess I'll have to break you
Down

Too much is not enough for you
I always let you, I always let you down
(Da da da da da da da)
Track Name: Changing Colours
It's the end of the summer
The leaves will soon be changing colour
How can you leave her if you love her?
In search of another lover

I think of all the signals
All the subtle clues
But I still miss coming home
and seeing her shoes

It's the end of the summer
The leaves will soon be changing colour
How can you leave her if you love her?
In search of another lover

I think of all the signals
All the subtle clues
But I still miss coming home
and seeing her shoes

Oh my baby
We really did try
And I still think you want me at your side
But I can't give you
All you want in life
And there's only so much we can compromise

It's the end of the summer
The leaves will soon be changing colour
How can you leave her if you love her?
In search of another lover

I think of all the signals
All the subtle clues
But I still miss coming home
and seeing her shoes

Oh my baby
We really did try
And I still think you want me at your side
But I can't give you
All you want in life
And there's only so much we can compromise

It's the end of the summer
The leaves will soon be changing colour
How can you leave her if you love her?
In search of another lover
Track Name: Is That You?
Is that you In the arms of another man?
I guess that proves, it really was our last dance
You'll take him home, and let him into your world
Darling you know, how to take and give, without being hurt

I admire your desire
pull the trigger and take your kill home
tend the fire that you inspire
break a heart and continue down that road

Is that you calling at 2am
Why so blue? This I didn't expect
No I won't! This isn't for the best
The door is closed, I don't owe you any debt

I admire your desire
pull the trigger and take your kill home
tend the fire that you inspire
break a heart and continue down that road

Is that you with the bill up your nose?
Nice shoes, but what happened to your other clothes?
Stay safe, I know you love a thrill
But now babe, you're starting to look ill


I admire your desire
pull the trigger and take your kill home
tend the fire that you inspire
break a heart and continue down that road

(The feeling's gone
Made my amends
I'm healing now
Won't trip on loose ends)
Track Name: Dirty
Through the broken walls I see
This portrait I made of me
It's part of this wreck
I associate with home

And the pieces are tidy
Like someone swept me clean
But I know, I know
I'm still dirty

As I decompose, as I struggle with this note

I'm dirty
You're dirty
I'm dirty
Desert me, desert me

Don't mind these eyes
Or the tears they've cried
Six feet of cold earth
Is enough to stop a stare

And there are memories
Reside inside of me
Speaking lessons on obsessions
Please pills shut them up

As I decompose, as I struggle with this note

And I can't seem to find
The way to control my mind
And I can't stop, but I think you know
Where this ends, where this ends
I think you know

I'm dirty
You're dirty
I'm dirty
Desert me, desert me
Track Name: Spill
Wished away, washed away, wished away, washed away
The stain
Ran away, got away, ran away, got away
Escaped

No, I won't turn back

Keeping time, losing space, keeping time, losing space,
Again
What is mine, change my frame, change my mind, what's my frame?
Mend

No, I won't turn back

And I'm losing again, all of my friends
What do you have, to aid to mend
I've torn it apart, I've strewn my heart
Now I'm strung out, alone in the dark

It's up to you, and I feel all right
Were it up to you, would you save my life?
The boulder has been moved, and my ride has arrived
So I'm leaving you behind

And I'm losing again, all of my friends
What do you have, to aid to mend
I've torn it apart, I've strewn my heart
Now I'm strung out, alone in the dark

And I'm losing again, all of my friends
What do you have, to aid to mend
I've torn it apart, I've strewn my heart
Now I'm strung out, alone in the dark
Track Name: Spinning
There’s something broken that I don’t know how to fix
I felt your affection but could not return it
I want to embrace you, to explore every inch
But I don’t know how, to show you this

Do I say show me your room,
Do I put my hands upon you
Do I ask you to go for walk with me,
Do I ask for a kiss, regardless of who else sees

Maybe I’m wrong maybe it’s all in my head
Maybe this feeling comes from things I’ve misread
But I can’t stop thinking about it
But I’ve felt this before and this feeling hasn’t quite quit

It’s just another lonely night
Another internal flight
A hard and flawed examination
At the depths of my deprivation

I hope one day I learn
To unlearn what I’ve learned
And start to feel human again
Track Name: A Father's Love
I always knew, I could count on you, to save me
No matter how far, you loved to drive your car, you'd find a way for me
Always interested in what I had to say, And what I thought
Concerned enough, but allowed me my space, until I was ready to take off

And suddenly you were away from me
And I ache from the loss
Far too soon and I'm too far from you
Haven't seen you in months

(well) I guess I missed my chance
I missed my father's loving hands
Giving me a hug on Xmas morning
Or fixing something I could not have

I hunger for your reason
Your insight and critique
I wish for
another chance to speak

Sometimes I dream your still alive
And it can hurt so bad waking up
I try to learn from your strength
and carry on through the rough
