But A Dream

The gates are open to a higher road
just take the chance, just take the chance
It's one in a million, or so I've been told
just take the chance, you fool
Sometimes I see the world in all it should be
time flies and then it starts to fall to me
but what I see, it's but a dream.

Promises kept are keeping me
to the ground, to the ground
If I keep working, maybe I'll see
if I turn around will there be
sunshine on evening ocean waves
to soothe me
I'll fly and play among the gates of heaven
but what I see, it's but a dream.

Liner Notes

Thank you: My friends and family. Without you I could not keep going. In no particular order: Mom, Don, Rachel, Jim, Elliot, Penny, Sherry, Meredith, Smokey, Melisa, Carol, Jenna, Cat, Mon, Heather, Amy, Stephanie, and Denny, Chuk, Jack, and Mojo (Bodega).  May those I may have forgotten please forgive me.

This is my third self-produced project, and I appreciate the support of everyone who has taken the time to take a second look at something that may not be traditional entertainment.

Recorded at 2312 N. Blvd (My apartment) between September, 2001, and July, 2002. I use Rhode and Shure mics, De Armond electric, Yamaha, and Alvarez acoustic guitars, Ovation bass, Yamaha keyboard, Behringer mixing console, Line6 POD direct boxes for guitar and bass, Cry Baby wah pedal.

Photography by Melisa Dettloff. I wrote, produced, performed, recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered all of these songs, created the cover/package artwork, and additional photography.
