Playground

I'm sitting in the moonlight by myself
The conversations running wild inside my head
Only you, and only me whispering to you
The rest of the world is your playground

But you just, you just won't believe me
If I could, I'd let you deceive me
Why won't the rest of you see me?
I just can't wait for time to catch up

A roomful of girls
and none of them are my age
Most of them acting like memories still retained
(but I know better)
Memories of a life I once had
But where am I to be lost in the future?

But does that mean you can't have me? Yes
Just go back, go back and forget me
Why won't the rest of you see me?
I just can't wait for time to catch up

You're exactly the way that I like
all of the pieces to be
So call me from in your next life
But for now I can look at your picture
and dream of a day in the future
that I am accepted by my own

I'm dreaming of the moonlight by myself
The conversations running wild inside my head

But you still, you still don't believe me
If I could, I'd let you deceive me
Why won't the rest of you see me?
I just can't wait for time to catch up

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.

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.
