about

This is a sad song about my life. Except my wife doesn't have Alzheimers. And I don't have a wife.

lyrics

A new style of music that I've been working on for a while but have never really revealed.. If you hate it, that's fine.. I will continue to release electronic and progressive tracks! Just expanding my catalog.

This song is inspired by a story that I made up in my head. Here are the lyrics:

Warm night, drive you home for the first time
No words, just stare into the night sky
So in love that we didn't even need to explain
Stopped the car said she didn't want to go home
Said her parents didn't mind if she was out alone
And we could drive through the night, chase the morning away

I said your parents love you so
And I told them I would have you home by ten
But just because tonight is over
Doesn't mean that this is the end
So hear me

Float away, float away, float away now
We'll be okay, be okay, be okay now
And we can take it day by day, we'll take it day by day
And things will change, things will change, things will change now
But we'll remain just the same, just the same now
And I'm not here to make you stay
So darling, float away

Time was never on our side
Still kids yeah we never even tried
Growing up giving it to the conformity
Uniformed as a service to my will
Called away to the hurting and the ill
Blink of the eye and I'm holding you before I leave
I told her that I love her so
And God will put us where we need to be
Pushing through the tears she said "I know,
But why doesn't He want you with me?"
And I say

(Ch)

Dark room where the doctor gave the news
He said "the last thing she'll remember is you,
But then your name, then your face, everything will fade soon"
Quiet dinner at our table for two
Held her hand and told her we can make it through
I heard her whisper "I'm afraid to forget you"

She said "you're everything I know,
I'm terrified of what I can't control,
But now I have to let you go"
So I say

Float away, float away, float away now
I'll be okay, be okay, be okay now
And I can take it day by day, I'll take it day by day
And things will change, things will change, things will change now
But we'll remain just the same, just the same now
And I'm not here to make you stay
So darling, float away

My darling, float away
