about

The first of my experiments with vocals, which is a big move for someone who's only done instrumental stuff without a band and vocalist to sing what he writes. This began as a guitar riff that I was playing on the evening of April 23rd, 2012. I thought I was done writing these songs, but two long years after a friend's suicide, it was on my mind and the first verse naturally flowed out to accompany the music I was working on. It sat for a good while after that night, and eventually was picked up again and evolved into what you now hear as the firstfruits of this project.

about

Words'worth Ohio

An outlet for music with lyrics, or vice versa. My previous solo efforts as an artist have been instrumental, but the unheard lyrics were piling up.
For what words are worth, here are these.

Track Name: Four Twenty-Three
verse one:
coming out to five missed calls and messages awaiting
you can hear the silence fall as our belief is breaking
listen to the words repeat as if the first ones were mistaken
this could not be real, but there's not a chance it's faking
hours of the car ride home are lost in soft frustration
i consider words that could be said but there’s nothing to be spoken

you left the hope you could not find but it is here and burning brighter
you couldn't take the memories and now we hold them closely

chorus:
hope's still here
life presses on
faith's unwavering
love endures
and peace is still on its way

verse two:
i can't say i react same when the forecast holds a chance of rain
i can't feel it as I did before when bursting drops bring back your name
more obvious than where you are are the places that you are not
the parts of life where you should be are scarred and not forgotten
everything that i believe says that we can’t really know
yet somehow i am confident; i hope you beat us home

did you take Him by surprise and escape His plans for you?
you left us with memories and our lives to live with them
