The story of me, an American in Edinburgh, Scotland finding my place as a musician, a husband, a father and a Christian.


Without a Scream

Here's an old song that's kind of appropriate to have stuck in my head before heading off to L.A.

Without a Scream

Another morning, in bed again

Warm and snug with blankets pulled up to my chin

A cold December I've never seen

My Southern California sun shine down on me

I know that somewhere someone's cold

Someone's lonely, someone else is growing old

If I could only get that through my head I might find the strength to

Get myself up and out of bed

Open my eyes and let me see this world I've hidden from me

Open my eyes and end this dream for fear I'll wake without a scream


Another morning, in my home

Silence broken by the ringing of the phone

It's a long lost friend I haven't seen for quite a while

As she says hello I swear that I can hear her smile

She says soon she's coming into town

She'd love to spend a day or two, just hang around

I try to think of what I've done since we'd last seen each other

And I realize not a single thing

Open my eyes and let me see this world I've hidden from me

Open my eyes and end this dream for fear I'll wake without a scream


Don't let me wake without a scream

I'm falling, I'm tumbling

Towards the ground within my dream

And if I don't wake up in a cold sweat

How can I ever scream

Another morning gone to soon

Where's it gone the sunset is the only clue

If I could only see beyond my mind

I might take the day and

take the day and make it mine

(awesome guitar lick)

Open my eyes and let me see this world I've hidden from me

Open my eyes and end this dream for fear I'll wake without a scream



If you feel so inclined, you can listen to the song here.
